City of Reno Staff evaluated the area around the Pioneer Theater for additional on-street parking. The streets under evaluation were Pine, State and Mill between Center and Virginia. Based on the traffic data collected, staff feels additional parking could be provided with the following changes to current street configuration.
• Mill Street – Install angle parking on the south side and retain existing parallel parking on
the north side. This will add 11 additional spaces while keeping the existing two-way
• State Street – Convert to one-way westbound and install parallel parking on the south
side of the street to gain nine spaces.
• Pine Street – No changes recommended.
City Staff contacted the Pioneer Theater, who said they are in favor of the changes. Total cost
for the modifications is approximately $20,000 (Street Fund.)
