INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — IVGID residents are invited to "an interactive community workshop" about the district's Community Services Master Plan on Wednesday, Non. 30, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Chateau, 955 Fairway Blvd.
There, IVGID staff will begin the workshop with "a brief introduction of what is a Community Services Master Plan, followed by working stations about IVGID's recreation facilities and programs," according to a news release. "The evening will end with thank yous and a raffle drawing."
This is part of an 18 month-long process of master planning for the future of Community Services, according to IVGID.
"Updating the master plan every 10-15 years is an industry standard best practice to determine what the community wants as a road map for maintaining, revitalizing, or expanding new or existing amenities to meet the needs of our community," officials said.
