The Reno Community Council meeting held on July 29th has concluded, with the council denying the 39 Ventures special use permit to conduct screening/crushing operations at their site in Verdi. It is likely that the site ownership will move forward with an application for an alternative use, such as landscape material yard, lumber yard, or similar (all of which would likely be approved due to the land’s “community/commercial” zoning).
This effort’s success was an entire community effort, with a total of 60 speakers at the meeting and input from over 400 (Reno and Verdi combined) community members, with 155 supporting 39 Ventures operations and 257 opposing. It appeared that the support was split with Reno residents generally in favor of the operation and Verdi residents opposed.
