Verdi RailThe dominoes are falling into place to totally surround Verdi with new, dense development.  Two new legacy properties around Gold Ranch have recently hit the market, Stremmel East and Stremmel West.

Both properties were included in Reno’s spectacularly misguided W 4th Street TOD plan.  Both properties lie within the Tourist Commercial Gateway zone, with MINIMUM residential density of 30 units per acre.  While the W 4th Street TOD has been suspended, the zoning remains and in fact there is no density cap whatsoever now.  This is a developer’s dream and a community nightmare.
