The compatible use plan involves Clark County, Lincoln County, Nye County, the City of Las Vegas, the City of North Las Vegas, Nellis, Creech, the range, residents and other communities and local, state and federal agencies.

“Nellis Air Force Base, Creech and the Nevada Test and Training Range are a valued and long-time part of our community,” said Clark County Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick in a news release. “We want to ensure that, as we grow, we create plans that allow us to address any potential conflicts between these installations and our communities. I urge everyone, particularly neighbors, to learn about the process and provide input.”

Attendees will learn more about a variety of topics, including the project and how the complex influences communities and military activities that occur near communities.

The public is also urged to provide input on the compatible use plan to help ensure local needs are met. If you wish to review the draft ahead of time, it will be released on Nov. 9 here and is available for review and comment until Dec. 9.
