Stonegate Developers Defend Proposed Community

Feb 14, 2018

The proposed location for the Stonegate Community development in North Reno.

There has been no major housing development built in the Truckee Meadows since the 2009 recession. Now a group of developers is looking to build roughly 5,000 new homes in the White Lake Basin north of Reno. But residents already living in the area argue the planned community would create problems by increasing traffic congestion and demand for resources like water.

Reno Public Radio's Paul Boger spoke to developers Angela Fuss, Michael Barnes and Don Pattalock about those concerns.

The Reno City Council will likely decide whether to approve the land development during a public hearing Wednesday.
