Citizens advisory boards: what they do
More than 30 citizens advisory committees and boards volunteer their time and share their perspective to help shape Clark County’s future. Their work affects decisions that deal with everything from land-use planning to weed management.
In addition to these standing committees, other citizens advisory groups are formed to deal with specific issues as they arise. These committees generally disband once the issues are resolved. For instance, such ad hoc committees have helped revise Clark County’s development review process and refine the county’s ordinance on wetlands protection. Committee members help make important decisions about policies, how resources are distributed, and how services are provided to citizens.
