Bureau of Land Management, Carson City District has approved the Washoe County School District Sun Valley School Campus Project. The WCSD plans to build a middle school and other future school facilities within an 80-acre parcel in Sun Valley. The middle school will hold 1,400 students. The goal is to open by August 2019.

“The decision to approve the project supports administration priorities of facilitating opportunities for development on public lands that create jobs and help local economies grow and being a good neighbor to the communities we serve,” said Bryant Smith, Sierra Front Field Manager.

For this lease, the BLM has prepared an Environmental Assessment, Finding of No Significant Impact, and a Decision Record to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act.
