Washoe County is asking for input on this important matter of a comprehensive federal lands bill. The following information may be of interest to some in Hidden Valley, so we’re passing it along.

Please see information below, we have launched our updated website, as well as scheduled public meetings for the end of April. I hope you find the information helpful. With the bill still being at a point of proposal and subject to changes, information will be updated on this page as we make said changes and appreciate your time and any input you would like to share with us.

A comprehensive federal lands bill is being proposed for Washoe County, which also goes by the name of Washoe County Economic Development and Conservation Act.

The bill includes three distinct components:

  • Economic Development for the Greater Reno/Sparks area
  • Names, acreages and maps of federal lands in the northern portion of Washoe County that will be proposed for conservation and the release of the remaining wilderness study areas.
  • The draft language that accompanies these maps.
