1st Required Community Meeting for Daybreak Development
The Coalition was just informed today that the Daybreak Development (Butler Ranch) is holding another community meeting to inform and update area residents about Daybreak and its current plans.
The short notice meeting is to be held this Thursday, Feb 8th at the Grand Sierra in the Carson 123 Room. Snacks will be provided.
We encourage everyone to try and attend to get the most up to date information available. The Coalition will have members attending to provide comment and to get current information. Hope to see you there!
Gail Willey/Color Rock Yard blocked in Pleasant Valley
On November 28th the Coalition was among more than 150 people to voice our opposition to the Gail Willey / Color Rock material yard proposed in south Reno in Pleasant Valley along Steamboat Creek. The development was being proposed as a nursery but it also contained over 80 concrete bins that would have been filled with soils, landscape materials, small to large rocks and boulders and various other landscape installation materials. WRAP (Washoe Residents for Appropriate Planning) did an outstanding job presenting the opposition to the County Commissioners and were denied their SUP to include the landscape material portion of their development. They were approved for the nursery (plants and shrubs) but did not get approval for the material bins. Everyone made outstanding arguments and did some great research!
StoneGate Master Plan Community in Cold Springs
Despite some recent talk about sustainability, smart growth, infill and the like, the Reno City Council will vote on a 5,000-home development on the north side of Peavine, near Stateline. Despite no answers about where the water will come from, the cost to taxpayers of extending services/infrastructure, and coping with the influx of transportation, apparently a yes vote is likely, because "they haven't heard from citizens or other people who care. They only hear from the lobbyists and developers pushing this project."
