[ARCHIVED] Citizen's Adviory Committee Members

The Towns need your help to update the Plans for Prosperity for Gardnerville and Minden. We are now accepting applications through December 28, 2017 for Citizen's Advisory Committee Members to help with updating and enhancing the Plans for Prosperity. 

The update will address several driving policy issues including:

  •  transportation
  • land use
  • economic development
  • urban services
  • housing
  • regional drainage concepts
  • community character

Because the final draft of these plans cannot be successfully implemented without the participation and valued input of those who will be most impacted, the Towns are looking for two (2) or three (3) residents/business owners from each town, to join representatives of the Carson Valley Visitors Authority, the Chamber of Commerce, the Douglas County Business Council and the Carson Valley Arts Council as members of a Citizens Advisory Committee dedicated to assisting with the update.  Members of the committee should be prepared to commit 5-10 hours during the months of January, March or April, July or August, and September. During this time the committee members will discuss and identify critical issues facing the Towns, and serve as a sounding Board to vet ideas and concerns.

The proposed approach builds on community input and advances recommendations from the committee to the Town Boards, Planning and County Commission. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to consider helping to shape the community plans for the Towns.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns about this process.  We look forward to working with you to develop plans focused on vibrant, thriving communities, honoring the unique history of each Town and addressing the future needs of the Carson Valley.  

Copies of the existing Plans for Prosperity for each Town are available upon request or can be found below.  If you wish to be considered for appointment to the Citizen’s Advisory Committee, please fill out an application below.
