Resident Access Pass

The Town would like to advise all recipients of a resident access pass that there is no street parking during the event weekend.  County emergency agencies need clear access in Town should the need arise.  The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will be patrolling the Town’s back streets and vehicles will be removed in congested areas.  This step has allowed for a safe event in the past and DSCO will be enforcing it again this year.

The Resident Access Pass cards are for residents who live within the traffic control area only. To ensure public safety, these passes are not intended to provide residents or guests with a detour around Town.

 

Important Notice Per East Fork Fire Protection District

The Genoa community area has extreme fire danger this year.  The town’s back roads must be kept clear for fire or emergency equipment.  Vehicles found parked impeding fire or emergency equipment on the Town back roads will be removed at the owner’s expense.  East Fork Fire Protection District and Genoa Volunteer Fire Department ask Genoa residents to help keep our roads clear and vehicles off the back roads.
