Upcoming Reno City Council Meeting

This information has been updated

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the City of Reno will be implementing social distancing at the Regular Meeting of the Reno City Council on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 10 a.m., and following additional guidelines from the CDC. In-person capacity for Council meeting attendance has been reduced to 25 people. Instead of attending in person, we encourage citizens to use our online Public Comment Form ( or email

We are excited to offer an additional alternative for constituents to voice their concerns without having to come to the Chamber during this public health emergency. The City has temporarily set up a phone voicemail line for public comments to be received for the upcoming Council meeting. Callers may leave a voicemail at 775-393-4499, up to three minutes, and the message recording can either be broadcast into the Chamber during the meeting, or transcribed for entry into the record, with hard copies given to Council for review. Please note, this is not a live call-in line.

Online public comments, emails and voicemails allow constituents to voice their opinions or concerns without having to be physically present at the meeting. Comments received prior to 4 p.m. on March 24 will be entered into the record. We appreciate the public’s patience and understanding during this difficult and challenging time.

All Non-Essential Boards & Commissions Meetings have been cancelled until the end of April 2020

While Reno City Council and Planning Commission meetings will continue as scheduled, we would like to remind the community that all non-essential Boards and Commissions meetings have been cancelled until the end of April 2020.
