Agendas and minutes

The Board of County Commissioners formed the Clark County Development and Engineering Advisory Board to review policy and code changes and to work with Community Development and Public Works on process improvements and fee issues.

The advisory board consists of nine members – three private firm planners or engineers, one construction contractor, one government planner or engineer, one land developer, one Building Industry Association representative, and two professionals associated with development. The diverse professional backgrounds of members provide a well-rounded perspective when identifying areas for improvement.

County commissioners appoint board members to two-year terms.
