Opinion: Kudos to IVGID staff, board for beach presentation

I attended last Wednesday’s excellent IVGID staff presentation at the Chateau on potential improvements to our beaches based on a survey of our community last year.

What a difference between the Board and Staff’s approach to the beaches, and their approach over the past year to possible improvements to Diamond Peak, which has raised suspicion and acrimony!

Brad Johnson did a superb job of explaining what the IVGID staff learned from last year’s survey and how that might translate into specific improvements to our well-loved beaches. The difference in attitude and response of the community was clear as a result of its being allowed to voice its opinion through a survey — something the IVGID board has not been willing to do with regard to its self-generated ideas about possible improvements to Diamond Peak!

As full time residents who treasure what we already enjoy here in Incline Village and who want to support future improvements, it is refreshing to be able to engage in a reasonable community consideration of how to move forward without the Board trying to ram something through.

My hat is off to Brad and his colleagues for their work thus far!
