Farm decision postponed

UNR farm meeting moved

The Reno City Council was slated to vote on rezoning 104 acres of the University of Nevada, Reno farm station on Jan. 30. That item has now been moved to March 27. Farming activist Wendy Baroli and other proponents see this as another opportunity to reach out to council members to let them know that there are strong feelings against this proposal in Reno.

“It’s so much more than just a parcel of land—it represents the legacy of farming and ranching in Nevada, and it is the best use of open space in that area,” Baroli said. “Please tell the Reno City Council how you feel about the UNR farm station right now, today!”

The mailing address to reach the Reno City Council is P.O. Box 1900, Reno, NV 89505. Letters can also be faxed to (775) 334-2097. Email addresses:
