More housing in Southwest Reno? Where should it go? In last Sunday’s Reno Gazette Journal, Washoe County Planning Commissioner Thomas Daley discusses our Mt. Rose Highway, the only Nevada highway in the entire state that is designated “scenic” (other than “The Strip” in Las Vegas)….
“Despite Nevada’s 110,567 square miles, only this state route, about a 24 mile-long stretch starting at South Virginia Street and ending at Incline Village, warrants this designation.
So you might think that those federal, City of Reno and Washoe County entities, who control the zoning and development decisions along this highway, would carefully limit such plans to ensure they do not ruin for eternity this very small venue of spectacular views for those who transit this corridor.”
