RENO, Nevada — Reno Land Inc. and Lyon Living Inc. today made a donation of exercise equipment to The Village on Sage Street and Reno Ice. The Village on Sage Street is an innovative housing option for low-income individuals in Reno, and Reno Ice is the nonprofit spearheading development of The Jennifer M. O’Neal Community Ice Arena in Reno.
The equipment, valued at tens of thousands of dollars, was previously housed at the now-closed Lakeridge Tennis. The housing project will install equipment for residential use in the common areas.
“This donation to The Village at Sage Street will help to further accommodate the residents who otherwise may not have access to a gym,” said Devin McFarland, Community Administrator at The Village on Sage Street. “We deeply appreciate the commitment of Reno Land Inc. and Lyon Living Inc. to the progress of Northern Nevada.”
The Village on Sage Street opened in August 2019 to provide stability through housing to low-income individuals as part of the Community Foundation of Western Nevada’s innovative solutions for housing in the Reno area. This unique co-ed “dorm-style” facility comprises eight modular buildings with 216 small single-occupancy units for individuals that are at least 18 years of age.
Reno Ice will use the equipment to train ice hockey players, figure skaters and other ice-sport participants at its facility in South Reno. Reno Ice broke ground this spring on The Jennifer M. O’Neal Community Ice Arena along Wedge Parkway in the South Valleys Regional Sports Complex. The first phase of construction includes an NHL-regulation rink and support facilities such as locker rooms and skate-rental facilities.
Joel Grace, Vice President-Development of Reno Land Inc., said the equipment donation represents the company’s strong support to fostering a vibrant community.
“We work hard at projects like Rancharrah and the redevelopment of Park Lane to create a brighter future and sense of community for Northern Nevada,” Grace said. “We are proud to support projects like these in Nevada that are working equally hard to create spaces that are essential for the growth of our community.”
The former site of the now-closed Lakeridge Tennis Club will be redeveloped by Reno Land Inc. and Lyon Living Inc. into a residential community for active seniors.
