RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- A showdown between neighbors in rural Spanish Springs and a developer proposing a multi-family urban style housing project in their backyards came before the Washoe County Commissioners Tuesday evening.
Around 75 people showed up to the public hearing at the Washoe County Complex chambers, many of whom spoke out against the development citing worries over the possible flood impact the development could have. Opponents also felt the proposed housing project will take a toll on their rural lifestyle.
With a 3-1 vote in favor of amending the master plan for Spanish Springs, the project moves on to Regional Planning Commission for further action.
Opponents said they plan to continue fighting the proposal, including possible leagal action.
