Lyon County Master Plan

This post to outlines a series of community open houses and workshops regarding the Lyon County Master Plan. First up, Issue Identification Open Houses to be held March 19 through the 29th.

All of the open houses will be held between 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. The open houses will provide an opportunity for the public to review and identify issues that should be considered during the preparation of the County’s Comprehensive Master Plan. The Open Houses allow local residents to comment on countywide topics as well as on the issues that are most directly relevant to their areas.
After that, a series of Visioning Workshops is scheduled for April 9th through the 12th.

The purpose of these workshops is to get community input to the countywide vision as well as for each specific planning area. The first portion of the workshop will be a brief overview: “where is the county today, where is it headed, and what issues are we facing”? The second part of the workshop will be a visioning exercise focused on how residents would like to see the county in 10-20 years (probably in small break-out groups). The workshops are expected to be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in each community.

We are hoping that the Board of Commissioners will be able to join the Planning Commission in a joint workshop during the Planning Commission’s April 10th meeting. We have tentatively scheduled this workshop for 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 10th.
