July 22, 2020 Reno City Council Highlights

Post Date:07/22/2020 7:15 PM

In our ongoing commitment to keep citizens and media informed, we’ve summarized the outcomes of a few key agenda items from today’s Regular Meeting of the Reno City Council:

D.3 - City of Reno Budget Update

Staff presented council with updates on tax revenue. Consolidated tax revenues were actually higher and better than expected. March revenue was nearly ten percent higher, while April was nearly 25 percent higher. The figures help soften the blow of budget cuts and reduce the amount of funds that need to be cut.

D.9 - CARES Act Funding

The Chief of Staff presented the council with background and restrictions for $46.6 million awarded to the City of Reno. The goal is to create a fund expenditure plan with direction from the council. 

E.2 - Skyway Design Guidelines

Council approved amendments to Title 18 to codify certain rules and exemptions for certain skyway projects. 

D.2 - Daybreak Master Plan Amendment

Council provided final approval to Newport Lands LLC for the Daybreak development.  The approval changes approximately 979 acres of land to Planned Unit Development. City requirements include community donations, and select units deemed for affordable housing. 

C.1 - Cordova Master Plan

Council approved zoning changes for the 11+ acre site near Quilici Ranch Road. It would have one housing unit per acre for density. Similar zoning and density is the same for plots to the south of Cordova’s site. The developer indicated it would only contain a single home. 

C.2 - Waldren Drive Abandonment

The council approved the abandonment of the property near Waldren Drive near Parr Boulevard. The small alleyway is placed between two parcels owned by the same resident. 

D.4 - Trinity Episcopal Church Cathedral

Council unanimously approved the nomination for the church building to be added to the National Register of Historic Places
