The City of Reno’s Historic Resources Commission is meeting April 7 to discuss historic homes located in the University of Nevada, Reno’s so-called Gateway District. ThisisReno.com contributor Bob Conrad reports. 

 

Some citizens are concerned that UNR’s new master plan will impact the historic homes on Center Street south of campus.

UNR spokeswoman Heidi Gansert said the university is not planning to demolish the homes.
