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 Washoe Planning Commission denied the re-zoning on February 5, 2019. See links for meeting notes or meeting minutes.

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.
