Meetings in Your Neighborhood

By  | 

There are two important meetings coming up this week, that could have a big impact on your neighborhood.

The battle over the YMCA's plans to move out of Reno's old southwest goes in front of the city planning commission this Wednesday. Officials with the Y are hoping to sell the property of Foster Drive to relocate, and are asking for a master plan amendment to change the current land status of that property, to mixed residential.

This planning commission meeting will be held at Reno City Hall in the Council Chambers, on Wednesday September 20th at 6 p.m. and is open to the public.

One person who may not be at that meeting is the former YMCA Chairman Brooks Mancini, who turned in his resignation on Monday.

The second important meeting concerns Sparks residents...the Sparks City Council will meet once again to take the controversial "Lazy 8" Casino Project.

The public is invited to attend the "Lazy 8" meeting at Sparks City Hall in the Legislative Building, on Wednesday September 20th, beginning at 3 p.m.

You'll recall, the State Attorney General threatened to sue the City of Sparks after council members settled a lawsuit with "Lazy 8" Developer Harvey Whittemore behind closed week after publicly rejecting the proposal during a public vote. The AG's Office said, council members violated open meeting laws.
