Development In North Valleys Sparks Concern Among Some Residents | KUNR

By ThisIsReno

Reno City Council could vote Wednesday on annexing a slice of Lemmon Valley being eyed for development. Michelle Billman reports the decision raises larger questions among North Valleys residents about how growth is impacting their community.

City Council has already unanimously approved an ordinance introduction for the annexation. The owner says the land would be ideal for housing, which has some Lemmon Valley residents worried, including Doug Robertson who spoke up at the last council meeting.

“We don’t live in Reno because we don’t want to live in Reno,” Robertson said. “I’m sorry.”

“What? Are you saying you don’t like us?” interjected Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve. “I won’t take it personally.”

I watched the live airing of the City Council meeting, regarding the annexation in Lemmon Valley. I was ill and could not attend. I feel that the proposals of what is planned and wanted with the properties should have been shown and discussed with the residents before any discussions on the annexation. Points were brought up on the sewer system (that is at max at this time), the only road leading in and out of the valley. Who is going to liable for the improvements (which should not fall on the current residents but the developers), and what impact this will have on the property taxes and the quality of life in the valley?
