Since the recession, parks departments in the Reno/Sparks area have sustained massive cuts to budget, personnel, and maintenance. This has resulted in the general deterioration of our parks and recreation facilities. TMPF believes it is imperative that we emphasize quality of life in Truckee Meadows by investing in these vital public resources.
Our city and county representatives are currently deliberating the 2016-17 budget, and it is time to remind them how important parks are to our economy, health, and overall quality of life.
