Midtown: Drive-Thru or No Drive-Thru?

Being pushed through Reno Planning and City Council is a request for an alley abandonment for Pueblo Avenue surrounding the redevelopment project for Heritage Bank. This will allow for at least one drive through, possiby two, for this project, in a district designated as pedestrian-oriented development.

The Midtown Merc's are being awfully quiet about this, leading me to wonder if they are aware of it, or simply don't care/not on their radar.

Positively 4th Street Showcases Neighborhood Pride

Positively 4th Street Showcases Neighborhood Pride

One of the coolest things about Reno is there are a ton of people here who give a damn. From the Biggest Little City Campaign to Midtown and West of Wells taking the reigns of their own neighborhood, there are a lot of people who invest serious amounts of time and money into showing other locals and tourists just how cool our urban corridor is.

The latest example of this is the Positively 4th Street event, now in its second year. At its core, this is a group of business owners who are fed up with the bad wrap that 4th Street consistently gets. The East 4th corridor has actually cleaned up quite a bit over the years, but often falls under the radar of locals and tourists seeking a good time.

Here's your chance to see how passionate these business owners are about their own neighborhood, and what the East 4th Street corridor has to offer.
