The purpose of the meeting is to give the public the opportunity to ask questions about the massive Neon Line neighborhood development project proposed for the downtown area by developer Jacobs Entertainment.
At the end of October, amid some opposition, the Reno city council
Council was due to consider the development-related abandonment items on December 8, but the items were withdrawn after concerns surfaced that the public did not have enough time to review and comment on them.
According to the statement, the meeting is seen as a city-supported initiative with the developer’s representative involved in the discussion.
“The presentations will be limited to the basic terms of the agreement and the desired outcomes related to the developer’s vision for the Neon line, followed by an additional question and answer period,” according to the city. “City staff will be available to discuss specific questions that may be asked by the public regarding planning, zoning and business licensing. “
The January 10 meeting will be held in person and virtually. Go
