BOO!

Few things are more scary than out-of-control development in Washoe.  The latest is the proposed change to zoning in the Zolezzi/Lenz area to allow higher density housing.  There is a neighborhood meeting scheduled for Thursday, 11/2, at 6PM at the Lenz elementary school.  Attend to fight the increased housing density in our area. Zolezzi_School.

We have begun to meet with experienced principals to discuss our strategy going forward.  The priority is to prepare for the 2018 election.  Our present challenge is to find a candidate with high ethical standards who could defeat our Commissioner; Robert Lucey.  Given the political demographic, we’re most likely to win with a Republican candidate who will need to defeat Lucey in the primary.  But, given the national political climate, we may see a higher than normal turnout by the Democrats.

I was pleased to see the Reno Gazette Journal publish my One View piece yesterday.  I was disappointed that the statements the commissioners made to me were edited out.  The commissioners themselves really made my argument.  The editor told me that they did not want to publish them since they did not corroborate them.  Links below are for both the published (edited) version and for the submitted (original) version.

I’ve seen no activity on the Ascente property in the last few weeks.  The tracked drill is still sitting on its transport truck at the end of Fawn Lane.

  1. Did WC Commissioner Hartung really say that someday your acre or our individual acres in Callahan Ranch could be subdivided into high density?! I got news for him that our acre lots are owned by us individually, mine for 41 years, and it will be a cold day in hell if he thinks they can actually take our land away! Could you verify his comment to mean that?

    • It was an off-hand comment on his part, so I don’t want to take it too literally. We didn’t explore it in detail. I think his point is that housing density will increase everywhere over time and some day our neighborhood will be re-zoned for higher density. He thinks we should be happy to profit from selling off some of our lot. It shows how blind he is to our preferences.

  2. What will Ascente traffic do to our already overcongested neighborhood and narrow streets without dirt shoulders?
