CC Supervisors stalls approval of 100 home project on Race Track – Supervisors move ahead on affordable housing on Butti
The Carson City Supervisors failed to approve 100 new homes on the east side of Carson City on Race Track off Bigelow. The project lacks some easement approvals for drainage. The homes will be on relatively small lots off Bigelow, bordering Cone Peak. The issue comes back hopefully for resolution at the Supervisors next board meeting in two weeks.

The Supervisors also began consideration for a 160 unit apartment project labeled as affordable/work force housing for low income families in Carson City. It’s a little ways out into the future but could contain up to 160 families with rental rates that are quite affordable. Various developers will be eventually submitting bids on which developer can come up with the best deal for the city and its citizens.
The Supervisors decided to further formulate a path for a developer who will eventually emerge as the one to build it. Final selection of the developer is expected to occur at the November 21st Supervisors’ meeting. Preparation for such a big project will take some time to get through all the red tape and conditions. Construction could be as much as two years down the road. There will be several tiers of tenant eligibility from a few “market rate” units up to 30%, 60% and 80% of market rate.
