Jacobs Entertainment / Sands Casino has applied to have a block of Ralston Street Abandoned to help them complete their “Neon District”.  The full application is HERE (Record Info / Attachments).

This would benefit no one but Jacobs and is in complete disregard of Reno’s Master Plan policy to maintain the existing street grid pattern.

Interesting tidbit from the Justification – Sands plans to convert 173 of their hotel units into rentals, and 10% of all units they develop will be “affordable”, though affordable isn’t defined.

Enough is enough.
