RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Livestock Events Center has always been a place that shows Western culture. The Nevada Western Heritage Center Alliance will be presenting a new project to the Washoe County Board of Commissioners Tuesday at 10 a.m.

From monster truck shows, volleyball, and of course the Reno Rodeo, NWHCA is presenting an $80 million project that has a total of three phases. The group says because of deferred maintenance, it is time for a change.

Perry Di Loreto is the President of NWCHA. He says if the project is approved by the Washoe County Board of Commissioners, it could be a major economic return for the community.

“It’s time to play catch-up, it’s time. If this is going to remain a vital part of our Western heritage recognition in our community and our agricultural heritage in this community this is the facility that needs our attention to do so,” Di Loreto said.

NWCHA has already received a unanimous board resolution in support of this effort from Sparks. This next step will allow them to source more funding.
