While the West has plenty of big cities, it also has open spaces, tiny towns, and sparsely populated counties. Rural and Tribal communities generally have limited resources, and rarely have staff planners. For these clients, Lumos can offer a range of planning and multidisciplinary services that range from Feasibility Studies to Master Plans. We even helped a locale purchase a bus for its transit program! In one project, Eureka County (NV) contracted with Lumos to prepare a Feasibility Study for the Ruby Hill Mine County Historical Park. We researched the history of the Ruby Hill site; performed a survey of similar historic mining parks and an analysis of cultural and historic tourism with an estimate of the tourism impact of such a park on the County; researched potential costs of park development and operations and potential funding sources; and provided a recommendation to the County based on these elements.
