Reno City Council Adopts New Master Plan

Posted: Updated:

The Reno City Council passed a new Reno Master Plan Wednesday. The plan contains guiding principles, goals, policies, implementation strategies and various supporting maps that will be used to guide future decisions related to development and land use, natural resources, mobility, infrastructure, public services, and other issues of interest to the City and its citizens as the City grows and evolves.

62,000 people are expected to move to Reno in the next 20 years, and the Master Plan is a road map that will allow the city to adjust to that growth.

"This is a very comprehensive plan," Sienna Reid, Senior Planner for the City of Reno said. "It's taking a look at a lot of different topics, whether those be infrastructure and services, economic development, sustainability. Also, what do we need in terms of open space and greenways? How do we enhance connectivity for this community?"

The master plan was created through the ReImagine Reno process.  The Reno Planning Commission’s voted and recommended to move forward with the new plan. During the Planning Commission’s hearing on October 18, 2017, the commissioners discussed revisions related to several policy issues, including level of service targets, growth management, annexation, closed basin flood management and several others.   

"This is how the process should work is getting as much community input as you can from businesses, from stakeholders, from your neighbors, from everything that's going to the city about what they want their city to look like," Oscar Delgado, Reno City Councilman said.
