Project Plan (PDF)

2017 Emerald Ash Borer Plan (PDF)

Project Description: Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive insect that destructively targets ash trees and has been confirmed in nearby communities. To proactively deal with this issue, the City will be utilizing a professional tree consultant and contractors to assist in the removal and replacement of these trees. The 370 ash trees within City right-of -ways, City parks, and at City-owned facilities will be systematically removed and replaced over several years to maintain a balance between public safety and replanting efforts.

Sidewalk Project

Current Sidewalk Program

Project Description: Sidewalks are an integral part of the transportation system for the City of Nevada. They provide a safe location for pedestrian traffic for all ages of citizens. School children utilize the sidewalks to travel to and from school. They allow walking and jogging while being safely separated from vehicular traffic. Without sidewalks the intermingling of foot traffic and vehicular traffic would greatly increase the chances for serious injuries to both the pedestrian as well as the motorist. The sidewalk program provides a means of reviewing the condition of existing sidewalks throughout the City. The program, by City Council directive, is an annual operation and the areas affected are shown on the City’s web site. The affected area is reviewed by staff and the notices are sent to the owner of record according to the County Auditor's office. The City encourages residents to participate in the cost sharing program and have the repairs completed. If residents decide not to participate, then the repairs shall be completed and the property owner shall bear the entire expense. The City of Nevada continues the sidewalk program in an effort to provide safe public walkways for its citizens.

The 2018 Sidewalk Project will concentrate on Zone 10, from north of I Avenue to the south side of Lincoln Highway east from 4th Street to 1st Street.

Recreation/Wellness Project

In the Summer of 2017, the Story County Wellness and Recreation Center Task Force reviewed the RDG Planning and Design proposal and had concerns of the overall cost of the project. After a financial review of the project, the consensus was to explore a more affordable option. The second option was presented and discussed as part of the Nevada Vision 2020 Capstone project, which can be found at the link below. The option presented as part of the Nevada Vision 2020 Capstone Project is the option the City of Nevada will be moving forward with design specification and cost estimates that will be presented to the Nevada City Council in 2018.

Nevada Vision 2020 Capstone

Below is the historical information of the Story County Wellness and Recreation Center Task Force and the original proposal from RDG Planning and Design. Although the RDG proposal isn’t an affordable option for the City of Nevada at this time, it provided a great deal of insight for the Task Force as they discussed other alternatives.

Project Description: In 2014, a community summit was convened to review and update the Nevada 2020 plan. From this summit, the Story County Wellness and Recreation Center Task Force was created and charged with leveraging key partnerships to work through the feasibility, community needs, and sustainability of a potential facility.

Purpose: To encourage healthy lifestyles, improve the health of the community, enhance quality of life, improve the attractiveness of our community and create new opportunities.

Opportunity and Key Principles: To determine the feasibility of developing a sustainable recreation / wellness center that will complement opportunities currently offered in Nevada and surrounding communities.

  • The facility will add new opportunities for all members of the community.
  • The center will enhance the ability to attract new businesses and residents to the community.
  • The project will be a partnership of diverse community stakeholders.
