LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Clark County has launched "Transform Clark County," a major undertaking to establish a cohesive, countywide vision for the future and a defined strategy to achieve that vision. This effort will include a complete rewrite of Clark County's key policy and regulatory documents—the Master Plan and Development Code.

While both documents have been updated over time, a new blueprint that reflects Clark County's diverse community of interests and historically rapid growth is needed, officials said, adding that the updated Master Plan will serve as a policy blueprint for the growth and physical development of the County over the coming years and will inform subsequent updates to the Development Code.

"We need a clear vision for making our community more livable and sustainable," said Commissioner Justin Jones, a vocal advocate for the updates. "For that reason, public input is critical so that we can come to a shared understanding of the kind of community we want today, tomorrow, and for future generations." 

The Master Plan rewrite portion of the Transform Clark County process will be the primary focus initially and is expected to be completed by summer 2021. Adoption of the Development Code will occur in late 2022. 

Clark County residents are asked to complete a vision and values questionnaire at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/795JXDX and to visit the project website at www.TransformClarkCounty.com. Y
