Development plan to amend the Washoe County Master Plan Category on three parcels totaling 1089 acres to a Character Management Area (CMA) for Rural Residential and allow Medium Density Rural zoning within the CMA. The properties are in the Warm Springs area. Medium Density Rural permits lots of 5 acres rather than the current zoning of General Rural requiring 40-acre lots. The result would be that 187 homes could be built where only 27 would be allowed under the current zoning.
The applicant is Krater Consulting Group
The property owner is Winnemucca Holdings, LLC.
Note: The subject parcels were recently removed from the City of Reno’s Sphere of Influence, where they had a Reno Master Plan Category of Special Planning Area and which currently have a Washoe County Master Plan designation of Rural.
