Washoe Valley Citizen Alert

Verizon Wireless Cellular Communications Tower Update – 02/08/15

Verizon Wireless has applied for a Special Use Permit to build a 100 ft. Cellular Communications Tower in North Washoe Valley. The original application (application # SB14-002) has been denied twice by the Citizens Advisory Board and once by the Washoe County Board of Adjustment.

Verizon Wireless has chosen to modify the original application and appeal the Board of Adjustment decision to the Board of County Commissioners (Appeal # AX14-003). We will need continued extensive citizen involvement to convince the County Commissioners to deny this application.

The Washoe County Board of County Commissioners is tentatively scheduled to hear the appeal of the revised application at their regular meeting on Tuesday, March 10, 2015. The meeting will be held in the County Commission Chambers at 1001 E. Ninth St, Building A, Reno NV. A time for this agenda item has not been posted yet.

For additional information on this project, the application and appeal can be found online at www.washoecounty.us/comdev/da/da_index.htm You may also contact Washoe County Planner Grace Sannazzaro at (775) 328-3600. Information may also be found on the website washoevalley.org
