Support Construction of the Prado Ranch Community

UPDATE: This project is no longer open for comment.

We need your help to ensure this project is built. Please tell the Reno City Council why Prado Ranch would benefit Northern Nevada.

The Prado Ranch community can and will bring a number of benefits to the Lemmon Valley area. Besides 2,000–3,000 jobs, the development also has potential to alleviate traffic congestion, mitigate damage from potential weather-related emergencies (including flooding) via road elevation, improve emergency services response times and stimulate the local economy with dollars from new residents and visitors. Additionally, the developer is including 446 acres for future open space/common area to preserve the rural charm of Lemmon Valley, help local wildlife thrive and build flood protections into the area.

Please take less than a minute to fill out the form below. It will automatically be sent to the Reno City Council. Thank you for taking action!
