Public Art vs. Pollution
A giant storm drain fish now lives along the Truckee River walkway in downtown Reno. The fish is the first of many characters to be painted on storm drains to draw awareness to the dangers of pollutants in our water ways. The paintings are a part of a campaign that illustrates storm drains as the mouth of the River. As in, we wouldn't put radiator fluid, oil, or glass in our mouths, so we shouldn't put them in the River's mouth. For more information on keeping our river clean, please visit www.tmstormwater.com.

Reno ready for snow fall.
The City is adding salt brine to its snow and ice control plan. The brine is more environmentally friendly than the salt/sand mixture that was used in the past to curb ice on the streets. It is a great tool for keeping the wet stuff from turning to ice and makes it easier for the snow plow operators to remove snow. About the only storm the brine won't be effective with is a rain storm that turns to snow.

City of Reno, New Stretch of Bikeway is a Hardy Adventure near Town.
Big Bikeway, Little Bridge. http://youtube.com/user/cityofreno Supporters of the Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway project recently partnered with the Truckee Meadows Water Authority to complete a new Fleish Bridge and connect about 3.5 miles of the Bikeway to Verdi. You can bike or hike to the new section from Crystal Peak Park in Verdi and Winnemucca Ranch Road. Although part of the trail is along the Truckee River, there are some steep hills to climb. It is so worth the effort. The trail, which also serves as a utility road for TMWA, is beautiful. The project is a major hurdle in the plan to create a bike trail from Lake Tahoe to Pyramid Lake. It is the only bridge that needed to be completed for the project and connects Nevada to California. Funding for the bridge was a combination of public and private donations, including TMWA, State Question One, Recreation Trails Program in Nevada, Fred Ilfred, and Phil and Jennifer Satre and Bikeway volunteers. The City of Reno is very supportive of the Bikeway project. The City partnered with the Bikeway group to build a path in Verdi, so bikers don't have to travel on I-80. The City also repaired part of the path in Reno behind the National Automobile Museum with funds donated by the Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway. https://youtube.com/user/cityofreno Follow the City of Reno on Facebook and Twitter. https://reno.gov.

Learn How One Motel Owner is Making a Difference in Downtown Reno
http://youtube.com/cityofreno Helen Laub stepped out of her role as homemaker and mom to clean up two motels she obtained in a divorce. The motels, In Town and Lido, once had a horrible reputation for calls-for-service to the Reno Police Department. Helen worked with the Police Department and Code Enforcement through a program that required her to take a class and complete a number of improvements to make the property crime free and up-to-code. Helen and her staff have a no tolerance policy towards drugs, prostitution, drinking in public and disorderly conduct. The Reno Police Department recently honored Helen with a "crime free" status at the motels. Now there are very few calls to the Reno Police Department. Her efforts are attracting tourists, as well as residents who prefer to live in a clean and safe weekly rental downtown.
