(Action)
B. Dolan reminded everyone that the projects, Joshua Community and the construction of the Pahrump Arts and Recreation Project (PARC), are to be kept separate.
Mr. Joseph D’Angelo reiterated that the Joshua Community Project had been ‘shelved’ until the Ad Hoc Committee could be formed.  PARC will include a Sports Arena, Baseball, indoor basketball, soccer fields, an outdoor amphitheater, an art district; it will expand Hwy 160 for 7.5 miles and increase property values.  All financing will be the responsibility of the developer and none of the suggested plans will be at the expense of the Town or County.  Other amenities would include a small water park, theater, and fairgrounds. Mr. D’Angelo asked for the Town Board to move forward and approve an engagement agreement. After that letter of engagement is received, credit and a business plan will be provided; models will be attended to; BLM contacted; and Nye County Planning and the Town Board.
Vicky Parker asked for clarification that the agreement would be ‘asking the Town Board to talk,’ not a commitment to anything. The Town would be responsible for only the Town’s legal fees, nothing else. Mr. D’Angelo agreed that was the intent.

Mike Darby motioned to direct staff to negotiate a management agreement between the Town and Joshua Ventures International (such agreement to be approved by the Town Board at a later date), for the development and construction of the Pahrump Arts and Recreation Complex which could include a sports area, arts district, water sports area and fairgrounds project on the 426 acre parcel PARC Property.

Point of order made by Bruce Culley:  wants to make sure not only Town Board and Town Staff negotiate, but that the people are involved as well.
