Genoa, Nev. — The first community workshop on the update of the Douglas County Master Plan is 4:30-6:30 p.m. today at the Topaz Ranch Estates Community Center, 3911 Carter Drive in the south county. Sessions are also scheduled at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center in Gardnerville on Tuesday and at the Indian Hills meeting room on Wednesday.

I received a mailed notice for the Nov. 12 and Dec. 3 master plan meetings, since The R-C is within the noticing zone for the Park Holdings receiving area swap, along with much of Gardnerville and Minden.

What’s not happening this week is school, which is out for fall break. Keep an eye out for children walking to and from parks, the pool, the theater and other places they’re likely to go.

Firefighters working the Caples Lake blaze west of Kirkwood are starting to demobilize as the fire drops back to a prescribed burn today. Containment is still listed as Halloween.

Expect sunny skies today with a high temperature near 69 degrees. The wind will be clam picking up out of the northeast around 5 mph.
