Volunteers Sought for Laughlin's Colorado River Heritage Greenway Park Trail Advisory Council
Applications are being accepted through Wednesday, March 6 for volunteers interested in serving on the newly created, five-member Colorado River Heritage Greenway Park Trail Advisory Council.
The Advisory Council was created by the Clark County Commission, to whom it will make recommendations about matters involving recreation and economic development in the roughly two miles of park land fronting the Colorado River in Laughlin.
“The Colorado River Heritage Greenway Park Trail is popular with residents and visitors alike,” said Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft, whose district includes the area. “The Advisory Council will provide a direct conduit for those who want to weigh in on the uses of the park and any concerns that they may have.”
The group also will help facilitate programs that take place in the park, including the annual Wings and Wildlife Festival and one that occurs on National Public Lands Day. Further, it will assist with community service and outreach events, including cleanups and promoting safety and education.
Advisory Council members will serve for a term of no more than three years. The positions, which are unpaid, are expected to be appointed by the Clark County Commission April 2.
