INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – The Incline Village/Crystal Bay Community Forum recently held its bi-monthly meeting, which brought together residents and community leaders to discuss pressing issues and hear from candidates for Washoe County Commission, Incline Village General Improvement District (IVGID) Board of Trustees, and Washoe County School District Board.

North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District Chief Ryan Sommers started the meeting with updates on wildfire awareness, defensible space evaluations, and filing complaints with the Nevada State Insurance Commissioner regarding homeowner’s insurance issues.

“We absolutely know there’s an issue (with wildfire insurance),” Sommers said. “It is statewide. California is going through it. Nevada is now definitely going through it. I’ve been in contact with our delegates in Washington D.C., a local lobbyist, and a national lobbyist. We are definitely doing our due diligence. We’ve also met with the Nevada State Insurance Commissioner.

Local Heroes Wrap Up & Thank You!

July 12, 2023 | Kristin Derrin

The IVCBA Local Heroes Parade and Community Fair were amazing this year. Our community was out and supporting each other with perfect weather and many smiling faces. Starting with the NLTFPD Flag Raising and Pancake Breakfast, to the bike parade and local heroes parade, the Community Fair, Highlander Pride Backyard BBQ, Toccata Concert, Flag Retirement, Veteran’s breakfast, and the SkyShow made for a very eventful 4th of July weekend. This community came together through volunteering, donating, and supporting local businesses. What a great time for the Incline Village/Crystal Bay communities. Here are a few photos from the Local Heroes Parade ~

From the Parade to the Community Fair, we had perfect weather and smiling faces. Susie Scoops brought back the Ice Cream eating contest and many of our IVCBA members were on the Village Green with the community.

We could not have done all of this without all of you! Thank you to all our volunteers, donors, and IVCBA member’s support and, of course, the IVCBA team! Thank You!
