Washoe County Public Lands Bill Open House


Residents around Washoe County have been asking for a lands bill for Washoe County that is balanced and protects parks, open space, and wilderness. Your voice is being heard!

The Washoe County Commission will be holding another open house for the Washoe public lands proposal. They want to hear your vision for the future of Washoe County. Join us on November 2nd and make your voice heard!

Washoe County is rich with incredible open spaces that offer Northern Nevadans places for outdoor recreation, solitude, and adventure. With demanding pressures of population growth and development, now is the time for a comprehensive lands bill that can help our community sustain our quality of life, protects and expands our parks, open space, and wilderness and promotes economic opportunities!
