Rural Event Center Task Force

At the Council's direction, the director of Community Development is leading a task force created to explore possible code revisions in unincorporated Clark County. Issues to be contemplated include opening up current county code to allow property owners in R-5, R-10 and R-20 zones to engage in agri-tourism related activities not currently permitted.

The task force is comprised of:

  • Three farm owners operating in the R-5, R-10 or R-20 zones 
  • Three winery owners operating in the R-5, R-10 or R-20 zones
  • Three residents living in the R-5, R-10 or R-20 zones who are unaffiliated with farms and wineries
  • Three residents who participate in a formal organization or board that represents the residents or businesses of Clark County

The task force meets once a month for three to five months. The meetings are in a hybrid format, meaning members can attend either in person or remotely. Microsoft Teams information to join remotely is included below. Members of the public are invited to attend the meetings for observation only. It is anticipated that the task force will wrap up its work by or before the end of July 2024.
