Our fight against Ascente is as much political as it is about codes and buildling plans.
Reno is exploding. Residents from all over the county are dealing with the same problems we are and they are fuming. The Planning Commissioners think they can get what ever they want just slid by residents due to the housing shortage, and we are all going to pay for it down the line with a city built on poor infrastructure.
We need to send a message to the commissioners that we aren't just one group of residents, we represent anger and frustration felt throughout the entire county. We need to tell them we will hold them accountable. We need to wake them up to the political ramifications of passing Ascente as is.
To this end, we plan to take out an RGJ ad directed toward angry residents everywhere who are fighting their own battles and don't know where to turn. We will invite them to join us at the appeal meeting to help strike the first blow in the larger war.
We currently are not sure how much we need to raise, so we thank you for any contribution you can make above the set goal. Any extra proceeds from this specific fundraiser will be saved for future advertising, video production and potential litigation.
Extra proceeds from the previous fundraiser for the appeal application will be rolled into this fund.
