Las Vegas Wash Comprehensive Adaptive Management Plan

The Las Vegas Wash Comprehensive Adaptive Management Plan (LVWCAMP), which was presented for approval by the Las Vegas Wash Coordination Committee on Dec. 28,1999, tackles the tough issues surrounding the Las Vegas Wash such as erosion, habitat loss and water quality.

Public Participation in LVWCAMP Development

As part of the development of the Las Vegas Wash Comprehensive Adaptive Management Plan, the Coordination Committee felt it was important to both educate the public and seek input during the development process. Public participation was sought through numerous ways:

In total, nearly 250 comments were received from more than one dozen entities, consultants, stakeholders and members of the public during the 35-day comment period (held 10/12/99-11/20/99). All comments received during the comment period are included in Appendix 15 of the LVWCAMP document. Each comment was considered separately and a response is listed with each comment. Of the comments received, 90 percent of the comments were either directly incorporated, or taken under advisement for future consideration.
