The Senate Bill 327 will allow developers to get easier approval for massive developments (like Stonegate or Daybreak) with less public review. It is written by Ben Kiekhefer on behalf of his employer who works for developers. It passed the Nevada Senate by a wide margin. It is now before the Government Affairs Committee in the Assembly which does not seem to take much interest in it. They may review it as early as Thursday 5/16 (agenda).
Note: the bill has been substantially edited from the original version, but the effect and intent are unchanged.
Please send one or more members on the Government Affairs Committee a brief message telling them to oppose this terrible gift to developers. Developments built under these rules could detract from the appeal of the Truckee Meadows for generations.
