The Washoe County School District is holding a townhall meeting Thursday night to discuss the new proposed middle school in the Arrowcreek area. 

The school district is looking at building the new school on Forest Service land across from the Hunsberger Elementary that would be given to the district via the Education Land Grant Act. 

The Forest Service will take questions about transferring the land to the district.

Some neighbors have had concerns about the land transfer. 

The school district says they're doing everything they can to address neighbors' concerns.

"We have worked extensively with neighbors and stakeholders to make sure there's more parking more roadway that's off of the main streets so cars don't back up. We're planting additional trees we're keeping native landscape as well, we're trying to keep it as low impact as possible for the neighbors,” says Riley Sutton. 

The school district will be showing renderings of the school at the town hall meeting.

The new middle school will take pressure off Depoali and Pine Middle Schools.

"There's a lot of people that are very, very excited to see this and it just continues to show them where we are in the process, to do as we promised during WC 1 to keep the community informed."

The 5:30 p.m. will be held at Hunsberger Elementary School at 2505 Crossbow Court in Reno.
