Douglas County commissioners are scheduled to discuss the appointment at their 11 a.m. Thursday meeting at Stateline.

East Valley resident DeVere is a retired U.S Air Force squadron commander. He has resided in Gardnerville for almost seven years, though he has owned a condominium at Stateline since 2001.

Gardnerville Ranchos resident Oland is a recent arrival to Carson Valley where he is a certified public accountant.

The Douglas County Planning Commission is advisory to the board of county commissioners and consists of seven members. Planning commissioners serve four-year terms.

Planning commissioners Margaret Pross and Jim Madsen’s terms are up this year.

Davis, who is marketing director at Edgewood Golf Course, was appointed in January 2016 to replace Foothill resident Kevin Servatius.

He resigned to take a seat on another board.

Planning commissioners are wrapping up their work on the Douglas County Master Plan 20-year update, which will be heard by county commissioners.
