Northern Nevada is blessed to have 4 distinct seasons. We seldom have to complain that the weather has stayed this way or that for very long. Fall brings us colors that paint the hills and valleys with a wash of color, it turns our minds to fall chores around our property and more inside endeavors as well. And Football, don’t forget football. Go Wolfpack! Read the rest of this entry »
Hello there, my name is Donna Glazier. I am a certified real estate agent, working for Real Estate of Reno Sparks. This blog/website will be how I keep customers old and new informed. I will also use it to showcase our great Northern Nevada region. This is my chance to talk about the areas I love so much and how to buy your own little piece of Western Nevada. I sell real estate in 12 of Northern Nevada’s communities, so chances are if you have property you want to sell or buy I already have relationships there.
I am active on the Mineral County Economic Development Authority Board an there are some very exciting things happening in Mineral County! Such as you ask? First groundbreaking was for LUNING SOLAR POWER ENERGY CENTER
The ground breaking ceremony for Luning Solar was held April 12, 2016 in Luning Nevada. This 50 MW solar site will serve 49,000 customers belonging to Liberty Electric in California. This will provide only 25% of their power, but it is a beginning. The company will be hiring up to 200 workers and construction should begin in earnest before the end of May. This was a big day for Mineral County. See some of our board members joining in on the festivities.
As a board member of the Mineral County Economic Development Authority, we are so excited about this new year and all of the groundbreaking ceremonies we get to celebrate this year. There are big projects heading to Mineral County, I’m so glad to be a part of it. Check out our board in the photo above, not everyone is there, but they were in spirit. We have more to share as they happen.
We have a groundbreaking ceremony coming up the end of June which is for the Hawthorne Technology and Industrial Park. This 18,000 acre park is the largest certified Economic Development Site in Nevada. It’s a pretty big deal. This is part of what is called the Army Re-utilization Manufacturing Support (ARMS) Program. ARMS is a reuse program that the Army uses to help unused industrial space pay for upkeep of the military base hosting it. Private industry can access this land via the local Economic Development Office at 775-945-5896
This map is preliminary, it defines the different zones. The greatest opportunity is that anyone wishing to develop or build their business on the Hawthorne Ammunition Depot will have all the land they could want.
Drones are our other big news! Did you know our state would like to make Hawthorne a Center of Excellence for Drone Testing? We held the Discover Hawthorne event in December 2015 which was attended by 7 drone companies, we had 32 flights that day which is the largest drone fly in the history of the US!
Hawthorne Speedway Opens Armed Forces Day for the first time in 10 years. The track is being conditioned and readied by Scott Moderson This is a public private partnership that will be good for everyone.
