Nevada Supreme Court Affirms Annexation in Cold Springs

Posted: Updated:

From the City of Reno:

Last week the Nevada Supreme Court agreed that the City of Reno's annexation of approximately 7,000 acres of land in Cold Springs was logical, did not adversely affect the residents, was done with a municipal purpose, was contiguous to city limits, and did not violate any statutory requirements.

In 2005, a group of landowners seeking to develop their property located in Cold Springs requested to be annexed to the City of Reno. A group of residents in Cold Springs that lived near the annexed area brought an action to the District Court requesting to reverse the annexation, arguing the annexation adversely affected their rural lifestyle and violated State law (another group of residents had voluntarily petitioned for the annexation). After the District Court concluded the residents' action was moot, the residents appealed the decision to the Nevada Supreme Court.

"The Nevada Supreme Court reviewed State and City annexation laws to determine if the City acted properly when it processed the request for annexation. The decision confirms that the Reno City Council followed the correct processes by providing all parties the right to be heard and the annexation did not violate any laws," advised Tracy Chase, Chief Deputy City Attorney.

According to the Nevada Supreme Court: "The City did not abuse its discretion by annexing the Territory because the annexation did not adversely affect the Citizens" and "The City did not abuse its discretion because its creation of an unincorporated island was reasonable and it properly considered existing municipal services."
