Sierra Reflections


Originally planned along with the St James development off the Mount Rose Highway. The Sierra Reflections development is between 580 and Old 395.


  • St. James Village is supposed to grow to 462 large lot homes and Sierra Reflections is to be 938 homes on smaller lots adjacent to old 395.
  • Sierra Reflections composition; 6 Dwelling Units with lots over an acre, 75 DU .41-1.0 acre, 139 DU .33-.41 acre, 218 DU .27-.33 acre, 361 DU .18-.27 acre, and 147 townhomes.
  • The developer claims that the Master Plan has been amended and that the tentative maps for all 1438 homes have been approved.  There will be no further public review.

There are over 100 development projects in Washoe County that are not started or not completed.  These include 60,000 dwelling units.  So, there is a lot of development possible with no further review or public input.

The Board of County Commissioners (4/14/20) has the first reading of a proposal to extend the deadline of the Sierra Reflections project from June 14, 2020 to June 14, 2022.

Status as of 6/15/18 (Trevor Lloyd)  “Sierra Reflections is set to expire in June of 2020; this expiration date was established with a development agreement approved by the BCC. We have been hearing from a developer who is interested in proceeding soon. We have not yet received a final map submittal. Attached is the original staff report with conditions as you requested.”
