Welcome to 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?

Board Goals

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.


Open, Transparent and Accountable

We believe this is the best way for us to govern. To make it quick and easy for you to engage in public policy, participate in governance and see how your County government does business, please visit our Transparency portal. It’s not just an open door, it’s an open invitation for you to be informed and get involved.

Our Commitment to Transparency
