Reno is experiencing an influx of residents. With that comes more people needing homes, more people filling jobs, and more children filling schools. The area of North Valley off North Virginia Street has seen some growth and the schools are filling up quickly. It is more and more apparent that new schools are required in order to effectively educate our children.
StoneGate saw this and decided to gift the Washoe County School District parcels of land needed to build future elementary schools. WC-1 passed during the November 2016 election. The school district can financially support renovations with that increase of sales tax. The funds received go toward construction, remodeling, and improvements to schools in the school district.
The land donated is another step in the right direction for the betterment of our community and the growth of our future.
Did you know StoneGate will maintain much of the land for public use as parks and hiking trails?
Living in North Valleys is not just a place to live, but a way of life. StoneGate is dedicated to that way of life and will set aside 107 acres for public facilities. Of the historic Heinz Ranch land, 612 acres will be open space, including 50 acres for public parks and 8 miles of public trails.
Being active is important, and the area in North Reno is one of the amazing local gems. StoneGate will construct and maintain over 8 miles of trails and 50 acres of public parks. These parks and open space are available to everyone, not just residence of StoneGate. Imagine waking each morning and being able to find a trailhead outside your front door.
By preserving the natural beauty of the area, StoneGate is supporting the wellbeing of citizens. However, there is more than that. StoneGate is a smart development. The many trails and parks will help combat greenhouse gasses, making it good for the people and the environment.
