It seems the final deadline to dibs and relocate the UNR Gateway houses in now 3 June 2019.  Okay Reno Planning, what concessions are you prepared to make to allow some of the remaining old/historic houses to be saved?  There are not many “historically appropriate” lots to move these houses to, and most of them won’t meet the letter of your Codes for setbacks and the dreaded Residential Infill Standards.  SUPs and Variances are not on the table with this demolition time-frame – Administrative action is required.  I try to be positive,  but Reno’s Planning Department will be a co-conspirator in the destruction of these historical resources.
