Jorge Bundlegift started this petition to Reno Rodeo Reno Rodeo

This is a petition to allow Wells avenue to remain a 2-way street during the Reno Rodeo's 10 day event. This happens every year and many business' in the area, the neighborhood in front , and commuters using this road to and from work , are directly affected by the road closure of the northbound lanes to use for parking throughout the 10 day event,  allowing 2 lanes to remain going south.

The solution would consist of providing shuttling from casinos where most of the visitors are staying in the first place , or shuttling them from the University less than a mile away. Where there is ample parking during the summer vacation. Or finding another location suitable for the amount of parking space now needed  without having to interrupt traffic, and closing down 2 northbound lanes for the use of parking spaces. A great idea would be to get the money put together for a 3 or 4 level parking garage wich would accommodate the majority of visitors. 

This rodeo event prevents the local area from conducting normal business as sales for that week drop major with the road closure. The neighborhood directly in front of the livestock event center  (where the rodeo is held) has the northbound lane exiting that community onto Wells Avenue blocked off for the 10 days, blocking access to gas, food, freeway entrance, and makes it very inconvenient by detouring around the neighborhood about 2.5 miles, instead of the 1/4 mile it would normally take to get to the nearest gas  station or or store for necessities. Ambulances now are rerouted and cant go directly to any calls in the area as I have witnessed myself, the ambulance exiting at wells and I-80 west , going to a call but mistakenly takes the northbound wich is closed for the event, and has to make a u-turn to find another way to get to the call. Consider that family part of yours, would you want the road blocked?

The Rodeo has to know that this community and daily commuters want this roadway unblocked  and for it to remain a two way street. Blocking off 2 northbound lanes for 10 days hurts this community. Wake up and sign the petition to change this and leave it a 2 way street during there event!!
