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.

Crystal Peak Park Cleanup – August 11th

Our next Crystal Peak Park cleanup will be Tuesday morning, August 11, at Crystal Peak Park (I-80 exit 3 and follow the signs to the park for those not familiar with it).

As an added bonus, anyone in the community who comes out and helps cleanup the park will be invited to Cabela’s next Friends and Family event at the store (date tbd).  Anyone interested should contact Jamie at james.klund(at)

Remember to wear a hat, sunscreen and bring a bottle of water. Thanks for helping keep this beautiful park a real jewel in the Washoe County park system. An email reminder will be sent a couple days before the cleanup.
