Clark County Railroad Advisory Board Mission Statement

The mission of the Railroad Advisory Board (RRAB) is to suggest developmental and operational options for the Railroad that will be instrumental in making the Railroad a public resource and a revenue generator for Clark County and, ultimately, financially self-supporting. The ultimate goal in the ownership of the Railroad and Railroad Right-of-Way shall be to provide positive economic impact, stimulate economic growth, widen opportunities for employment, and encourage safe recreational activities. The Railroad Advisory Board will work with the Railroad operator, governmental agencies, economic development groups and private parties to identify and promote sites that will support railroad activities.
