Construction is zipping right along in our Capital City, thanks in part to the city’s planning commission. The commission reviewed several proposals Wednesday evening: Number one was a 37 home subdivision off Emerson, immediately south of the I-580 freeway. The homes will be on very small lots which should make borrowing sugar from next door neighbors a lot easier. The developers agreed to a privacy fence between the development and its next door neighbor to the south – a place of worship. Each home will be able to park their cars in their garages “tandem” style. Construction should begin in late summer/early fall.
The next housing project approved by the planning commission was offered by FISH, Friends in Service Helping. New apartments will rise from the site on which sits the old Whistle Stop Motel. FISH will tear down the old Whistle Stop Motel that’s been a fixture on Carson Street for decades. Once torn down, FISH will build a new apartment complex in its place
to be rented to homeless or very low income families who will get a helping hand going to college, undergoing job training and otherwise getting their lives back together. Then at the end of the training period they move out so other needy families can work toward their own future.
There was one other another major project approved by the planning commission – low cost affordable apartment buildings on Brown at Gordon Streets. Developer Dwight Millard at the helm. Carson City on the GROW!!
