New is the year, new are the hopes and the aspirations,
New is the resolution, new are the spirits and...every end marks a new beginning. Keep your spirits and determination unshaken as we embark on this new journey.
As we had stated in our last update, the Coalition has determined that we are going to continue with our work to protect open spaces, flood plains and wetlands in Washoe County, particularly in upper south east Reno. We have laid out a preliminary plan to work toward limiting truck traffic on Mira Loma and Pembroke to try and eliminate big rigs using these roads upon completion of this damaging project, find out exactly where the above ground hazardous waste landfills will be located and make sure that they are marked to identify in the event of a future breach in the area, working toward requiring the City of Reno to have a comprehensive plan for the area when a breach occurs, and work toward restricting development around this destructive project in future. These are just a few of our goals going forward.
We have made contact and had meetings with several officials to set these goals on the road to implementation. It won't be easy but we have made that commitment to our stakeholders.
We hope to have more information for you in the next several months. Please check our Events page periodically to check for postings of upcoming Board of Director Meetings!
