The purpose of the meeting is to provide the public with an opportunity to ask questions about the massive Neon Line District development proposed for downtown by developer Jacobs Entertainment.
In late 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Council was due to consider the development-related abandonment items on December 8, but the items were withdrawn after concerns surfaced that the public had not had sufficient time to review and comment.
According to the release, the meeting is envisioned as a city-backed initiative with the developer’s representative involved in the discussion.
“Presentations will be limited to the basic terms of the agreement and 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 the public may have regarding planning, zoning and business licensing.”
The January 10 meeting will be held in person and virtually. Goes
