The Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) Land Use Plan provides a basis for future development while also preserving adequate land for existing and future airport operations and facilities. All land owned by the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority in proximity to the Reno-Tahoe International Airport is identified in the RNO Land Use Plan. The RNO Land Use Plan was adopted on March 12, 2015.

The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority is proposing changes to the adopted Reno-Tahoe International Airport Land Use Plan to allow for the transfer of approximately 2 acres land from Airfield Support use to Development Support use. Airfield Support use includes all land and facilities which are needed to support the runways and taxiways such as navigational aids, fueling facilities, maintenance and service operations, emergency response and FAA required protection areas. Development Support use is essentially all available vacant lands and leasable buildings which can support non-aviation related developments to help diversify and stabilize the Airport Authority’s cash flow. The 2 acres of land includes a 9,200 square-foot single story concrete building with Vassar Street frontage.
