Douglas County staff and commissioners are looking to update the county’s decade-old economic vitality plan and are seeking community input via an online survey.
“The plan was originally created in 2010 in response to the Great Recession as citizens, business and government were striving to create a more resilient local economy,” county officials said, according to a recent report from The Record-Courier. “The original plan included a number of initiatives, many of which have been completed, such as the Genoa Main Street Landscaping Enhancements and an 11 percent increase in the number of manufacturing businesses."
Douglas County Economic Vitality Manager Lisa Granahan noted that Gardnerville has added 87 new businesses in the last decade, according to the report.
Staff's goal is to present an updated plan for approval to the Douglas County Commission by the end of 2021. Several existing initiatives may remain in the plan while additional concepts will be added.
All Douglas County residents and businesses are encouraged to participate in the online survey, available here. Deadline to participate is 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 28.
