RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - On Wednesday morning, Reno City Council unanimously approved a motion presented by Reno City Attorney to evict current owners of a parking lot north of the Men’s Club in Downtown Reno, and now face a land dispute.

Right now, the parking lot is being used as extra parking for the nearby gentleman’s club, all of which is owned by Freight House District, LLC. The company acquired both, the Men’s Club and the parking lot, back in 2007, after a deal initiated by the City of Reno. The city sought to build the Greater Nevada Field on land that was owned by FHD, LLC. and struck a deal with the company to do a land exchange deal.

Today, Freight House District, LLC claims the city is trying to go back on their agreement by claiming the parking lot property lease term has expired, to which the company says is completely untrue.

A statement from the Reno City Attorney’s office, states they are unable to comment on specifics of pending litigation, but do plan on vigorously defending the city’s position.

A statement from FHD, LLC., states “we are disheartened at the city’s attempt to renege an agreement they initiated, this is a waste of taxpayer money and our time.” The company is prepared for whatever legal proceedings may occur to keep their property.

The City of Reno is looking to take over control of property in hopes to expand facilities for RTC’s Fourth Street Station. The Men’s Club is not included in the said land dispute.
