What most people might know is that it's the capitol of NV. It's well know for being near Reno and Lake Tahoe. A small, high-desert city, growing quickly and not in the way folks on the east side would like to see. We're in a mixed bag zoning area, residential, commercial, general industrial. Our end of the city is not as tidy as downtown, buy hey, the wind blows all shit in our direction. There is a vacant lot across Highway 50 (the loneliest highway) from my neighborhood, where the city is considering building a slaughterhouse.
We're not too terribly happy about it. More on my page.
