Upcoming City Council Meeting Items

Some interesting tidbits coming up on Wednesday's city council meeting.

Wingfield Towers Wants to Extend Final Map Recording by 5 Years
G.2 Staff Report: Case No. LDC11-00014 (Wingfield Towers) Request to amend Condition of Approval No. 2 for LDC06-00321 (Wingfield Towers) to extend the time in which to record the first final map by five years from November 15, 2010 to November 15, 2015 and to allow the remaining two phases to be recorded in accordance with the time limits contained in state law. The project consists of a 499 unit residential condominium subdivision and ±39,790 square feet of office/retail space. The ±1.36 acre site is located on the south side of Island Avenue, ±200 feet east of Arlington Avenue and north of Court Street in the MU/DRRC (Mixed Use/Downtown Reno Regional Center Plan) zones. [Ward 1]
Note: The staff report indicates recommending only giving a ONE YEAR extension, not a five year extension.
Personal Note: Guess they haven't received the virtual memo about downtown! Over the years since this project was introduced, I've come to realize there's no way in hell downtown can support a project this size....possibly ever.

http://REreno.com is reporting that the city wants to take back the block of Mill Street that they gave to the Siena. I'm all for it!

The city should have never given that block to Sienna in the first place. They should have mandated that the Sienna build a parking structure, even if only 2 levels. That would have provided more than enough parking (though I don't know if the Sienna ever managed to even fill up their existing lot), and would not have messed up the traffic flow as abandonment has.
