Our community exceeded expectations to ReImagine Reno

ReImagine Reno Focus Group

ReImagine Reno wrapped up the first phase of public input for the Master Plan Update on October 31st. With all the participation tallied up, we are humbled by the number of people who shared their ideas for the future of Reno. In all, we connected with just under 6,000 people! The number of engaged citizens and the impressive diversity of ideas is something to be proud of: the residents of Reno–and the region at large–are invested in keeping Reno great and figuring out how to improve where needed.
