Open space workshops scheduled
Douglas County planning commissioners will hold a series of workshops on open space starting Nov. 23.
The meetings are intended to gather public comment on whether Douglas residents want to preserve local open space, and if they’re willing to pay for it.
The upcoming meetings will include presentations by various groups interested in open space, as well as the challenges faced by ranchers, who own much of the area’s undeveloped land.
A tentative schedule for the meetings has been set. All of the meetings are scheduled at 6 p.m.
