Reno City Manager Doug Thornley
Do you know what a city manager does? Most people don't! While our elected officials may have more name recognition because they have to go out and campaign, Reno's form of government puts a lot of responsibility on a city manager, someone whose role is similar to a CEO for the city organization.
Today on Renoites, Reno's city manager Doug Thornley sits down with Conor to discuss what a city manager actually does and how he came to be in that role, the competing visions of what Reno should be as a city, how various economic trends have affected the area over the recent decades, what different neighborhoods are doing to improve their livability and reputation, and more.
We also talked about a few recent news topics, including the recently announced billion dollar expansion at the Grand Sierra Resort, the regional approach to homelessness including the CARES campus and the now-closed Record Street shelter, and the upcoming changes to Reno's streets to accommodate different modes of getting around downtown.
