Washoe County’s Spanish Springs Citizen Advisory Board will host a community forum tomorrow in the community building at the Lazy 5 Regional Park, located at 7100 Pyramid Lake Road in Spanish Springs.
The Spanish Springs Citizen Advisory Board is holding this community forum, in order to discuss:
• Annual recruitment for upcoming vacancies on the Spanish Springs Citizen Advisory Board. Members are appointed to staggered two-year terms. Upcoming vacancies include five at-large members and one at-large alternate with terms expiring June 30, 2013.
• Efforts to raise community awareness and involvement for the Spanish Springs Citizen Advisory Board, to include possibly adding additional posting locations for agendas and distributing fliers throughout the community and possible topics for discussion at Spanish Springs CAB meetings.
• Open discussion regarding possible options for improving the intersection of Calle de la Plata and Pyramid Highway.
Washoe County’s citizen advisory boards study and give counsel on public issues but are not responsible for the actual preparation of policies or programs. Their purpose is primarily to communicate ideas and concerns of local citizens to the county commissioners, thus enabling the commissioners to better do the job to which they were elected.
