Notice: Zoning Change at Robb Drive Approved
On October 27, 2010, the Reno City Council approved changing the zoning south of I-80 at Robb Driver from residential to commercial.
A commercial developer, TCA Properties, requested that land south of the Robb Drive interchange be zoned commercial, but they have yet to say exactly what types of businesses they propose to build there. Residents should be concerned about the traffic jams that will be created by any major commercial development at this location. The northbound lane of the Robb Drive bridge and the eastbound exit ramp are only one lane, and cannot handle large amounts of traffic from a large shopping center. And the inevitable series of traffic signals that would need to be placed at both ends of the bridge would cause traffic back-ups in all directions, especially during busy morning and evening commute times. This would cause great delays for Northwest Reno residents who rely on this interchange daily as a lifeline to the city. Residents are encouraged to express their concerns to the city. Contact information for the city council can be found under Links in the Archive of Resources section below.
Did you know that Flying J wants to build a big truck stop at the corner of Robb Drive and Interstate 80 in Northwest Reno? This website is intended as a means to communicate with concerned citizens about the truck stop issue and how they can get involved.
Though the project was stopped in 2008 due in part to the diligent efforts of concerned Northwest Reno residents, we must stay vigilant of any proposed development at this site and how it will impact homeowners in the area.
For a list of articles that document past developments, see the Links section under Archive of Resources below.
