BIG WEEK! We have the upcoming meeting this Wednesday April 11th at 6:00 pm. Sincere thanks to all the community members that have been working to spread the word! Attendance to this meeting is crucial. Please know we fully understand we are a busy community, so if you’re unable to attend PLEASE consider sending a quick email communicating your position (contact info listed below for your reference).
Some incredibly exciting news is that a Petition for Writ of Mandamus and Emergency Ex-Parte Motion to Shorten Time was filed by The Society for the Preservation of Verdi, Inc. against the City of Reno. A copy of this petition is available in the links below for your reference.
The Society are hopeful that the Judge will grant a requested Temporary Restraining Order. If this TRO is approved the City Council will not be able to vote on the tentative track map on Wednesday, April 11th. However, it is still imperative we are in attendance in case this does NOT happen in time. Additionally, this SHOULD be reported on local news stations this evening, if you’re able to watch (or record) we’d love to hear how it is reported.
We will be coordinating a joint meeting for all Verdi residents (i.e. Blue Heron/Belli Ranch, Verdi Community Council, Society for the Preservation of Verdi) to discuss this and the next steps in further detail.
One more item to share (as to be sure no one is taken by surprise) is that our Council Representative, Neoma Jardon, will not be able to be in attendance Wednesday as her son is scheduled for brain surgery that same day. She did relay that she wouldn’t miss this important meeting if it were not for something so serious.
Lastly, tomorrow is the second Tuesday of the month, meaning the monthly Ward 5 NAB meeting. It appears there is to be a presentation on the West Meadows Estates commercial development, so if you have interest in how that moves forward you are welcome to attend! These meetings are also held at City Hall at 5:30 pm. We will do our best to provide updates on this for those unable to make two meetings in one week.
Once again, and always, Thank You for your continued involvement, interest and support!
Verdi Community Council
