Mission Statement

Coliving Community -To be determined.

Douglas County:
Quality of life is the most important outcome of our work. The decisions we make have to pass one simple test: will it make Douglas County a better place?

Douglas County Board Priorities
Our goal is to keep you safe. To keep you moving. And to keep our economy growing. Our goal is to protect our natural resources. And to protect the most vulnerable of our citizens.

It’s everyone’s goal to give you the help you need, when you need it. That doesn’t happen all by itself. It’s something we’re constantly striving to achieve.

That’s a high bar. But you wouldn’t have it any other way.
