Lifestyle Homes started this petition to Washoe County Commisioners

Signing this petition supports local jobs and vital housing options that create community.

Honorable Commissioners, 

We need your vote of approval for a zoning amendment change. The people who sign this petition are in support of Silver Hills Agrihood. This project will provide steady and long-term jobs as well as create a lasting, well thought out and carefully planned community.

Today, more than ever, Northern Nevada requires something beyond another housing project. It needs homes that create community. Homes built in the North Valleys are often left out of things such as:

  • A design that engineers complete storm water retention and recycled water use for much needed green space. 
  • The option of solar to reduce our regions energy consumption
    A tree canopy to help with the heating conditions of a changing climate
  • Walkable communities where streets and sidewalks are designed to give families places to meet and engage.  This has proven to reduce crime in active neighborhoods where people feel they know one another.
  • Most importantly, a sense of place with multi-generational housing that addresses more than just a single-family home or an apartment with no hopes of ownership. 

While development can barely keep pace with today's housing crisis, this is not unique to our region.  This makes it vital to think in the long term. We ask the Washoe County Commissioners to vote for the long perspective. Vote for the Lifestyle Homes Silver Hills Project. Vote for Communities that encompass resources that are more than just another roof over societies heads.

Over the course of the next fifteen to twenty years, Lifestyle Homes will continue to directly employ over 50 employees with healthcare, benefits, and good wages. They will also continue to add to the stability of the local economy and business health by providing work for their hundreds of sub-contractors and suppliers; all of which through local sales taxes, and stable paychecks provide other revenue streams for local government. 

By requiring our project to conform to a Planned Unit Development through this zoning amendment request, each new phase of construction provides for a tentative map review to ensure the development plan. Anything the Commission conditions to the project will create added solutions to some of the more pressing issues currently facing the North Valleys.  Things like water quality, long term infrastructure needs, and added tax base to provide already needed schools and other community services. Some of the most pressing issues cannot be addressed by County government alone, without the reliable resources that new homes and community can provide. 

A vote for Silver Hills is a vote for steady jobs and a vision for the future.
