Reno City Council Meeting for LDC15-00016 (39 Ventures Materials Processing Facility)

WHAT: Reno City Council is hearing Verdi residents’ opinions on the 39 Ventures materials processing facility (the “rock crusher/screening machine”)


WHEN: July 29th (time TBD; 6pm has been requested but won’t be verified until approximately July 19th)

WHERE: Reno City Council Chamber, One East First Street, Reno, NV 89501

WHY: To hear Verdi residents’ (and 39 Ventures’s) opinions on this project, and (hopefully) vote to approve or deny the application.


1) SHOW UP!  If you don’t show up, the city council thinks you don’t care.

2) Be prepared to speak for up to 3 minutes to the city council to describe exactly why you feel the 39 Ventures project should or should not be allowed to proceed (use facts – not simply “I don’t like it” or “it hurts property values”…  a better point would be specific, quantifiable impacts on local traffic/wildlife/cyclists/pedestrians/etc.)

3) Need help?  Contact Gene Gardella at genegardella(at) for help formulate your presentation.

Park Cleanup a Success!

We had 10 total people come out to help pull weeds at Crystal Peak today! We worked from 9:00am to 11:30am, equaling 25 volunteer hours!  We popped a lot of thistle and pulled a lot of mustard. Great job everyone! Thank you so much for your efforts to help us keep this park looking good.

Last Call for Tomorrow’s Crystal Peak Park Cleanup!

Thanks to those who have signed up or emailed me regarding tomorrow’s park clean-up at Crystal Peak Park at 9am. It’s not too late to RSVP and help out for an hour or two tomorrow morning. We have eight folks confirmed, mostly neighbors and community folks but a few Cabela’s outfitters, too. We also expect a few “walk-ups” so an anticipated good showing for Crystal Peak Park clean-up number two this year.

In Memory of our Honored Heroes

Memorial Day 2015

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. The “National Moment of Remembrance” resolution was passed December 2000 which asks that at 3 p.m. local time, for all Americans “To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to ‘Taps.”
