Final Set of Public Meetings Held

Thank you to all who attended the final set of public workshops for the Nellis Complex Compatible Use Plan!  Clark County hosted the third and final set of public workshops virtually 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 AFB. The second meeting was held on November 12, 2020 from 6:00 to 7:30 PM and focused on the communities around Creech AFB and the Nevada Test and Training Range.

A presentation was given at each meeting that provided an overview of the entire Nellis Complex CUP project, public engagement opportunities throughout the project, and an overview of the Military Compatibility Areas and associated key strategies linked to them specific to the focus communities for that meeting. Attendees were also given an overview of the Public Draft documents that are available for download on this website and given information on how to submit comments. The comment period is open from November 9 to December 9.

First set of public open houses held – July 2019

Thank you to all who attended the first set of public open houses for the Nellis Complex Joint Land Use Study (JLUS). Community open houses were held in five different locations to provide more opportunities for attendance. The five open houses were held on July 23, 2019 at the Town of Tonopah Convention and Visitors Center (Nye County), on July 24, 2019 at the Indian Springs Civic Center (Clark County) and the Beatty Community Center (Nye County), and on July 25, 2019 at the Town of Alamo Justice Court Annex Building (Lincoln County) and Cora Coleman Senior Center in Las Vegas (Clark County).

During the open houses, participants were provided an overview of what a JLUS is, how it is being developed, and the role the public will play in shaping the document. a series of informational boards was displayed at the open house to provide a snapshot of the communities involved in the study, current economic and demographic trends, and information on the military activities, missions, and economic benefit within the study area. Attendees had an opportunity to provide their input on the potential issues in the study area through completing a community survey and filling out comment cards.

If you were not able to attend the workshop, it’s not too late to provide feedback. Click Here to take the survey that was available at the open houses.

The workshops were held in an open house format and the purpose was to provide an update on the JLUS project, showcase the military mission operational footprints, and allow the public an opportunity to provide input on the importance of each compatibility issue that has been identified through the JLUS process by identifying the timeframe that each issue should be addressed. This activity was conducted through an interactive exercise. Large format posters were hung on the wall that listed each of the compatibility issues that affect that geographical area. Participants were given a dot sticker for each issue and asked to place the sticker in the column next to the issue that identified the timeframe the issue should be addressed. Options for timeframe were near-term (1-3 years), long-term (more than 3 years), on-going, or no opinion.

The issues being evaluated are the result of comments and feedback obtained from the JLUS Policy Committee and Technical Working Group (made up of representatives from the jurisdictions, agencies and organizations involved in this project), stakeholder interviews, and public input provided at the first set of public workshops that were held in July 2019. Two project fact sheets were also available. The first was a general overview of the project and the study area. The second was a description of the types of recommendations that can be developed to address the issues. Workshop attendees were encouraged to provide comments and thoughts on recommendations to address the compatibility issues.
