MINDEN – Leaders here Thursday will decide whether voters will see a proposed library and senior facility at Stateline and a large county recreation complex in the Carson Valley on the November ballot.

The Douglas County Commission meets at 1 p.m., to decide whether Question 1 on the proposed facilities is on the primary election ballot.

The $30 million project would be built in phases, with the Carson Valley senior center slated to open in 2006. The recreation center would open in 2008. The Stateline facilities and a performing arts center in Carson Valley would open in 2013.

The project will be paid for through a 3 percent increase in gas, power and conventional and wireless telephone fees for Douglas County residents – levied at 1 percent increments in 2005, 2007 and 2009.
