The Carson City National Night Out event held in August has been awarded third in the nation among communities with a population of 50,000 to 100,000. Significantly, Carson City was the only Nevada jurisdiction to receive an award this year. Since 2003 when this community received its first “Rookie” award, Carson has been recognized every year consecutively. Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong attributes the successes to the organization of the event, and the tremendous partnerships and sponsors that come out every year. While the goal has always been to strengthen the relationships that law enforcement enjoys with the community, here locally, we go well beyond. One could say that National Night Out in Carson is all about the relationships with all local, state and federal public safety entities, military included, city departments, and our residents. Added to the composition, the participation of service organizations, profit and non-profit organizations, as well as all of the local sponsors, the event has created a one stop celebration of resources here in the community that stand ready to assist anyone in need.
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office would like to thank all of our partners for creating such a successful event each year. As a community, we recognize the value of collaboration and camaraderie here. It is because of this philosophy that we able to provide for the best possible outcomes when it comes to the safety of our businesses, neighborhoods, schools and families. We are continuously looking for ways to improve on the health and welfare of everyone in Carson, and the results are very positive. In 2018, thanks to the community wide support and participation, Carson City witnessed it lowest crime index rate since 1994, and with just the month of December left for this year, we are sitting at a crime reduction rate of 8% below last years levels. A special “shout-out” goes to the Carson City Parks and Recreation Department and Public Works who facilitates the critical space and equipment needed in Mills Park to house this ever growing event. Mayor Bob Crowell, Fire Chief Sean Slamon, and Sheriff Ken Furlong thank everyone for making Carson City such a great place to live.
Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies were called to an incident involving a high powered handgun in the 600 block of Hot Springs Road. The caller reported that he and his roommate were arguing over a domestic issue whereupon the roommate left the room but soon returned with a semi-automatic pistol and pointed at him with orders to leave the apartment – which he did.
Once outside, the roommate called 9-1-1 and summoned deputies who arrived shortly thereafter. The deputies ordered gunman Blake Read, a state corrections employee, to come outside without the weapon and with his hands up. He complied.
Read told deputies the gun was never loaded and that all he did was tell his roommate not to “touch his stuff.” The deputies said they had no way to ascertain whether the gun was loaded at the time so they arrested Read and took him down to the city jail. Read was booked on a charge of Assault with a Deadly Weapon and placed in a jail cell under $20,000 bail.

Anderson Ranch subdivision meeting at Carson Nugget
A pretty good turn-out at the Carson Nugget Thursday evening among neighbors of the Anderson Ranch area. They were, and remain, concerned about a 230 home subdivision proposed for development west of Mountain Street. Neighbors made is clear that 203 homes in the traditionally large lot west side of Carson City is too many homes even for such a large parcel. They complained that such an increase of homes in such a small area more than challenges the traditional look, feel and function of that part of Carson City.
But the developers contend that although that’s a lot of homes for what’s left of the Anderson Ranch, local streets can handle the added traffic and those additional homes should otherwise fit right in. Many disagreed with that.
Map of proposed 203 home subdivision on the West Side….
At this point in the developer’s application to the city the developer must face the Carson City Board of Supervisors and deal with further public hearings to determine just how many homes should be built and whether those homes will blend in and compliment the existing homes around the Anderson Ranch land.
The issue will be before the Carson City Planning Commission at 5:30pm, Tuesday, December 17th at the Community Center. Whatever the planning commission may decide, the issue will be forwarded the Carson City Board of Supervisors for a final decision.

Where the Supervisors do the publics’ business…
The Carson City Board of Supervisors Thursday sold a valuable piece of city-owned property that’s right up against the Carson Tahoe Regional Healthcare medical campus at the north end of town. The hospital wants to expand and Carson City is happy to be getting nearly a million dollars for the property. Carson City will turn around and apply that money to storm drain and other street improvements on South Carson Street.
In other action the Supervisors approved Carson City’s Sheriff and Fire Departments teaming up with NDOT’s state regional radio network which will help provide better police and fire department radio coverage in and around Carson City. Basically fewer “dead spots” and more efficient linking up between officers and fire fighters in the field – not only in Carson City but a bit beyond. Along with that, the Supervisors approved the purchase of new 9-1-1 system consoles for 9-1-1 operators and dispatchers. The old consoles are many years old and some of them have been taking turns at failing periodically which is obviously not a good thing. The switch-over to the new consoles should be complete within a few months.
The Supervisors reconvened this afternoon to consider a proposal for affordable/workforce housing to be constructed at 3410 Butti Way. Two companies bid on the project in which the land at Butti would be offered at a deep discount because it’s owned by the city. Pala Seek LLP won the approval from the Supervisors. If all goes according to plan the multi-family complex would be opened for business in late 2021 or 2022 – federal assistance in financing is the reason for the timeline.
The capitol grounds will be all aglow beginning at 6 pm this Friday night.
Pictures cannot do justice to actually seeing the lights!
