A huge new addition of suburban housing is being proposed for what’s left of the west side of the Anderson Ranch – west of Mountain Street. On December 17th the Carson City Planning Commission will consider a review of a 203 home subdivision that would dramatically change the character and ambiance of a major area of west side Carson City. The proposed lots are small – very small – by west Carson City historical standards.
During a community member meeting with the contractor at the Carson City Library, it was clear that surrounding neighbors around the project were upset about the sheer number of homes that would turn that part of Carson City’s westside in to an inner-urban landscape – with many homes with little recreation opportunities for families. On top of that, the developer hinted that his company might sell off pieces of the area to other developers who might not create the neighborhood amenities desired by new families.
The developer will be approaching the Carson City Planning Commission on December 17 for what is called a “Tentative Development Map” layout. The meeting on the 17th starts at 1pm at the Community Center. During the meeting lots of local neighbors are expected to challenge the planning commission’s likely approval of a 203 unit development in such a small area. Traffic impacts on narrow urban streets was also called in to question.
The Carson City Planning Commission will convene their public meeting on the issue on December 17th, at 1pm at the Board of Supervisors meeting room. There will be additional meetings that neighbors can attend as details are agreed to and made part of the overall project.
