I just heard yesterday: the Washoe Board of County Commissioners will hear the new Washoe County Lands Bill on September 11 (time TBD). This bill is a travesty, and warrants the strongest possible response from the residents. In short, it will make a deal with the Federal Government to turn over BLM land in the Truckee Meadows to Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County for development (73,000 acres). No one supports this bill except those that will profit from it. The cities and counties are eager for the development and for the ensuing property tax revenue. Given the problems we have now with irresponsible development, expanding the area available for malfeasance will produce a nightmare. Watch for the agenda with the schedule.
Thanks for the notification.
Please put me on your email notice list on this issue. And could you also identify the location?
Thanks again, G.
Gordon, My information is tentative. I believe it will be at the Washoe County Complex on 9th at Wells. Once we have an announcement, I’ll post that. The best way to keep current is to pick “follow” on the website. I don’t have a separate list for the Lands Bill. Steve
Thank you. We will be at the meeting.
Appreciate the heads up on this. I’ll see you at the meeting and will bring concerned neighbors with me as well. Thx for getting the word out.
