As a commissioner for over 11 yrs, I am mindful of the progress that is headed to our neighborhood and how essential it is to carry on setting up for sustainable improvement which aids defend and preserve our purely natural means, whilst strengthening the price of our homes and top quality of everyday living. There is certainly been much talk of fears and worries bordering the topic of advancement, even though we have been strategically scheduling for it for well around 25 many years.

The housing assignments Churchill County has been pursuing are for the most modern-day housing readily available. Proposals presented to the Preparing Fee and/or to the Board of County Commissioners are for housing which is greater excellent than that of surrounding neighborhoods and would make improvements to over-all assets values. Our current housing stock is overwhelmingly solitary-spouse and children dwellings as opposed to multifamily. We visualize one-household houses to carry on increasing with our populace as pushed by positions in our location. In fact, there are developments on the textbooks that would include additional than 3,000 one-family members residences.
