[ARCHIVED] Boulder City to Update Landscape Master Plan


Plan to address drought conditions, warmer temperatures

BOULDER CITY – Drought conditions have reached a critical point in the southwest. Water conservation is a must as Lake Mead water levels continue to decline.  The entire region is looking at ways to conserve, while exhibiting the natural beauty of trees, shrubs, plants and flowers. Staff at the City of Boulder City are looking for input from residents and business owners on how to balance the two issues.

Boulder City Code provides requirements for new development landscaping. Current landscaping of businesses would not need to change their current landscaping, and private homeowners can still plant what they choose on their property.  “The current code is more than twenty years old,” said City Manager Taylour Tedder. “Given the gravity of the water shortage declared on Lake Mead this summer, we all should take steps to conserve water.  My goal is for the community to review, support and embrace proposed changes. Community feedback is critical in this process.” 

The city is working with a landscape architect consultant to develop new landscape requirements for new development and guidance for parkway landscaping.  “Preserving community character in a sustainable way is the goal of this effort,” said Michael Mays, Community Development Director.  “This effort coincides with the Southern Nevada Water Authority’s recent reassessment of encouraging the installation of drought tolerant species in our region.”

You can review a video presentation as well as suggested plant lists at Residents and business owners can provide feedback by October 31, 2021 via email to  or they can call the Boulder City Community Development Department at 702.293.9282.

Proposed landscape code changes would need to be reviewed by the Planning Commission and the Historic Preservation Committee for recommendations and sent to City Council for review and deliberation.
