Washoe County, City of Reno and City of Sparks work together on new federal lands bill

Website launches, Public invited to provide input

Post Date:01/30/2020 11:08 AM

Washoe County, City of Reno and the City of Sparks are working together to bring forward a joint proposal for a new federal lands bill, the Truckee Meadows Public Lands Management Act.

In 2016, Washoe County, the City of Reno and the City of Sparks approved letters of resolution to support the creation of a lands bill to help our region with growth and establish permanent conservation lands. During that time, several meetings were held to gather public input and more recently, the three entities have been working regionally to create an updated proposal based on much of the feedback and concerns voiced by residents and stakeholders.

A new website to unveil this effort has been recently launched, LandsBill.org, with updated information, each agencies’ letter of resolution, stated goals of the bill, informational links and draft proposal maps for review.

Washoe County, the City of Reno and the City of Sparks are working together to seek feedback on the effort via the new website, providing another opportunity for the community to share input during this process. We encourage interested individuals to sign up for email updates on the website and you will be notified when new information is made available. Sign up for email updates.

For questions, to review information and to provide feedback, the community is welcome to visit LandsBill.org or email: landsbill@washoecounty.us.
