Meetings In Sparks To Address City’s Future


sparks-meetingThe city of Sparks is drafting its comprehensive plan with the help of local company RAD Strategies Inc. and has scheduled two workshops to seek input from citizens.

The comprehensive plan will replace the city’s master plan, help provide a vision for the next 15 years and assist elected officials on making decisions about things such as planning and growth.

About 2,600 citizens have provided feedback on what they like about Sparks, concerns they have about the city and how to make it a better place in the future.

People are invited to learn more about the plan and provide additional input at the following sessions:

· July 26 at Spanish Springs Library, 7100 Pyramid Way; doors open at 5:30 p.m., presentation starts at 6 p.m.

· July 27 at Larry D. Johnson Community Center, 1200 12th St.; doors open at 3:30 p.m., presentation starts at 4 p.m.

A meeting on the preliminary comprehensive plan is scheduled to be heard by the Sparks Planning Commission at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 4 at City Hall, 431 Prater Way. A public hearing and potential approval is scheduled for 6 p.m. Aug. 18, also at City Hall.
