Community open houses were held in five different locations throughout Clark County, Lincoln County, and Nye County to provide sufficient opportunities for participation. Participants were provided an overview of compatible use plans, how they are developed, and the public’s specific role in shaping the planning process and resulting documents. a series of informational boards provided a snapshot of participating communities, current economic and demographic trends, and the military activities, missions, and economic contributions in the Area of Interest. Attendees had an opportunity to provide their input on potential issues through a community survey and comment cards.

There were five separate workshops held in different geographic areas in Clark County, Lincoln County, and Nye County to provide sufficient opportunities for residents closest to the installations to attend. The workshops were held in an open house format to update the public on project progress, showcase the military mission operational footprints, and collect input on the importance of each compatibility issue that had been identified in terms of the timeframe that each issue should be addressed. Issue prioritization was achieved through an interactive exercise in which participants placed colored dots next to issues listed on large format posters to indicate if they should be addressed in the near term (1-3 years), long term (more than 3 years), or on an on-going basis. Participants could also indicate if they had no opinion about specific concerns.
The issues presented during the workshops were developed from committee comments and feedback, stakeholder interviews, and public input provided at the first set of workshops.
Participants were also provided two fact sheets. The first was a general overview of the project and the Area of Interest. The second described the types of strategies that can be developed to address compatibility issues. Workshop attendees were encouraged to give feedback on these strategies.

Clark County hosted the third and final set of public workshops on two separate nights, via Zoom. The first meeting was held on November 10, 2020, from 6:00-7:30 PM and focused on the communities surrounding Nellis Air Force Base. The second meeting was held on November 12, 2020, from 6:00-7:30 PM and focused on the communities around Creech Air Force Base and the Nevada Test and Training Range.
A presentation was given at each meeting that summarized the entire Nellis Complex CUP project, the public engagement opportunities that had occurred throughout the planning process, and an overview of Military Compatibility Areas and associated key strategies linked to them and specific to the communities of focus in each of the meetings. Attendees were also introduced to the draft documents that were available for download on the website and given information on how to submit comments.
