Neon Line District Agreement challenges Reno City Council members

The motion was passed with an initial motion from Councilor Jardon. A benchmark of units must be built within the next twelve months or the contract will be shredded.

Councilor Naomi Duerr shared her thoughts on the deal,

“At this point, there are no clear benchmarks for this agreement. It’s a deal. These are not nice people, I deal with nice people all the time. At the end of the day, it’s about the agreement and the words that are in the agreement. This is what we hold them accountable for. We detain them, they detain us, ”said Duerr.

Jacob’s and its representatives are also required to meet with the community to better inform them of these upcoming developments.
