Top ranking solidifies Reno’s new reputation

By John Seelmeyer

When the Reno area was ranked this week as the best small-city in the nation by Resonance Consultancy, the news was more than yet another source of pride for area residents.

Top national rankings are “incredibly important” to attracting top companies and skilled workers to keep the region’s economy humming, says Mike Kazmierski, president and chief executive officer o…

Just goes to show you that you can lie with statistics. As Mark Twain once said, “Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are pliable.” I’ve lived here my whole life and while the statistics say Reno is the best small city, the quality of life has gone down drastically since 2013. Traffic, urban sprawl, high sales tax, riots, squatters living by the river, overcrowded schools, meth addicts, illegal dumping in the foothills, incompetent City Councilmembers, and overpaid city workers. The list goes on, but none of that was calculated in the research. About the only good things in Reno is the weather and the recreational opportunities in the Sierras.

Next time someone complains about Californians, remember this article and it is Nevada’s development elites that are recruiting businesses and their employees to move here.

After moving here from California two years ago I only have positive remarks to speak about the Reno area. Except for one area, and thats the way the Housing market treats people from California, there is a commercial on television that people from California are coming to Reno with lots of money. I don’t know who these people are, but the majority of us from California are blue collar workers. The housing market has jacked the prices so high that we can not participate in the American dream here. The houses that are available here are junk and way over priced. Greed has gripped this city like the oil boom in North Dakota. That not even the locals can afford to leave there.

I have to agree with Ms Kockenmeister. Having lived here since 1985 the area has changed for the worse.

Its nice to see that we aren’t being seen as Reno 911 anymore..Although it was pretty funny.

Wonderful news. We always thought Reno was a yhidden treasure. However, we now have traffic like never before (have the powers that be spent any time on the freeways lately?) & our young people are pretty much priced out of the housing market since it has escalated with new residents coming from California with handfuls of cash. AND, whatever happened to our concern about drought & running out of water? We’ll all suffer together, new residents & old.
