We’re looking at a pretty brief first planning commission meeting of the year at 1 p.m. today, with only two items on the agenda. Both are related to the Seeman Ranch, located south of Buckeye, and neither is expected to be controversial. Planning commissioners meet in the historic Minden courthouse at 1616 Eighth St.

Douglas County School Board trustees meet twice today, first 3 p.m. at the Douglas County Public Library in Zephyr Cove to review plans for Gardnerville and Pinon Hills elementary schools under the facilities master plan. A second meeting starts at 5 p.m., and culminates in a discussion of the fate of Kingsbury Middle School, which was closed in June 2008.

It’s forecast to snow today after 10 a.m., but we won’t get much in the way of accumulation according to the National Weather Service. Expect the high to hit 36 today.
