Genoa sets planning session today

by Christy Chalmers

One of Nevada’s oldest towns is taking a look at long-range planning through the eyes of its residents.

The Genoa Town Board will host the second of three planning workshops today at 3 p.m. in the town meeting room. Residents are invited to comment on issues like drainage, fire hydrant expansion, roads and other infrastructure the town provides.

Town secretary Alice Rogers said the town board plans to establish a committee once the workshops are finished that will address the comments brought up.

“This is a total involve-the community effort,” said Rogers. “We are asking people, ‘What do you think? Where should we be going? What should we be thinking about? What should we be budgeting for?'”

Issues like zoning and land use have already been covered by Douglas County’s master plan. Still, Genoans can decide what they want the town to look like, and how they’ll pay for it.

Rogers predicted good turnout for the workshop. She said the first, held in January, drew several people.

“A lot of good ideas came out of it,” she said. “There are some people getting really interested.”
