The new master plan for the University of Nevada, Reno campus encompasses a number of wide-ranging objectives and reflects input from a variety of stakeholders in setting a new vision for the campus and the surrounding community. It elevates the conversation about northern Nevada as a true “University Town” and is a prime example of close collaboration among the University community, the City of Reno and the Regional Transportation Commission.

From a pool of 74 applicants, the Reno City Council chose David Bobzien as its newest member. Reno Public Radio's Michelle Bliss caught up with the former state assemblyman to learn about his immediate priorities for the post, which include bolstering the city's role in improving public education.

Members of the Reno City Council have unanimously selected Democratic Assemblyman David Bobzien as their newest member, filling the at-large seat left vacant when Hillary Schieve was elected mayor last month.

They made the decision Wednesday night after spending several hours interviewing their top six candidates. The original pool of applicants topped seventy people.

Bobzien has represented Assembly District 24 since 2006. That district covers downtown Reno, along with several other sections of the city.

Reno mayoral candidates Hillary Schieve and Ray Pezonella agree on many issues...but not on staffing levels for public safety personnel, like firefighters. Reno Public Radio's Michelle Bliss reports that this contention came up at a debate Thursday.
