Spring Valley is a census-designated place (CDP) in Clark County, Nevada, United States located two miles west of the Las Vegas Strip. The population was 117,390 at the 2000 census.

Background

Pardee Homes began developing a master-planned housing community called Spring Valley southwest of Las Vegas in the mid-1970s. By 1981, residents grouped together to solicit the Clark County Commission to create an unincorporated town, which it did that May. The town originally encompassed just one square mile – it now occupies much of the southwest quarter of the Las Vegas Valley.

The predominant boundaries of Spring Valley are Sahara Avenue on the north, Decatur Boulevard on the east, Warm Springs Road on the south and Hualapai Way on the west.

The area mostly consists of housing subdivisions, with strip malls lining the large boulevards that connect suburban Las Vegas to the Strip. The northern part of Spring Valley includes areas of rural-estate zoning, with large parcels of land on 1/64 square mile blocks. The southern part of Spring Valley, is quickly developing – just 15 years ago, very little south of Tropicana Avenue was developed within Spring Valley.

A large park, Desert Breeze Park, is located in the north-central part of the town.

Its municipal government is the Clark County Commission, which has seven members from across Southern Nevada (and none of who reside in Spring Valley, as of 2006). A five-member Town Advisory Board offers advisory opinions on zoning and business matters to the commission, but the commission is not obligated to respond or be held to those suggestions.

Spring Valley is the home of tennis legends Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, as well as Sacramento Kings owners George and Gavin Maloof. The Sultan of Brunei used to keep a residence there, and Carrot Top has his Las Vegas residence in the area. Nascar drivers Kurt Busch and Kyle Busch went to high school in Spring Valley, along with actress Cerina Vincent and BMX celebrity T.J. Lavin.
