  • East Truckee Canyon
  • Spanish Springs
  • North Valleys
  • Sun Valley
  • Verdi Township
  • Warm Springs/Rural

Commissioner Conversations

Commissioner Vaughn Hartung, District 4, and Vice Chairman Bonnie Weber, District 5, will host several neighborhood meetings beginning Aug. 6 to discuss the CABs with residents. A schedule of events is available online.

The CABs will be asked to study and advise their county commissioners on local public issues including but not limited to: regulations that guide building and planning for neighborhoods, neighborhood development proposals, public safety, the scope of local government services, discussions on how to allocate local taxpayer funds, the status of erosion control and road programs and the need for regional open space programs.

Applicants will be selected by commissioners in October, followed by a required CAB training. All applicants must reside within their CAB boundaries and be registered voters (if eligible) in Washoe County. To view the new Citizen Advisory Board boundaries, download the Citizen Advisory Board map.
