What are membership requirements for CABs?
Citizen Advisory Board (CAB) members must reside within the geographical area of responsibility for their CAB and be a registered voter (if eligible to vote) in Washoe County. On most CABs, the new member must also be a resident of unincorporated Washoe County. However, City of Reno residents are eligible for appointment to the North Valleys CAB, Southwest Truckee Meadows CAB, Verdi Township CAB and West Truckee Meadows CAB. City of Sparks residents are eligible for appointment to the Spanish Springs CAB as regular members or as alternates. The voter registration requirement can be waived on a case-by-case basis by the Washoe County Commission. New members are required to attend new member orientation within six months of appointment.
