Storey County Officials Release Statement on Tesla Development

Posted: Updated:
From Storey County:

Statement by Pat Whitten, Storey County Manager


On behalf of Storey County, we want to acknowledge the tremendous collaboration that has brought us to this point with Tesla. The unprecedented media coverage received has raised the level of awareness to Western Nevada and to the valuable asset we have with the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center. We have our work cut out for us, however we know that no other state can compete with the streamlined processes we’ve put in place in Storey County for ease and efficiency of development. We are excited about the new era of possibilities the Tesla operation brings and we look forward to continuing to position this region and, specifically Tahoe Reno Industrial Center, as the place where we make it happen.

- Pat Whitten, County Manger, Storey County

Statement by Chairman McBride, Storey County Commissioner

Storey County, in working closely with Governor Sandoval, the Governor’s Office on Economic Development, EDAWN and the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center, is grateful for the opportunity to showcase our capabilities as a region to the entire country. With this very positive announcement from Tesla, everyone now sees northern Nevada, Storey County and Tahoe Reno Industrial Center as the place for commercial and industrial development projects of any size.

- Chairman Marshall McBride, Storey County Commissioner
