No appeals of Gardnerville Walmart decision

GARDNERVILLE (Nevada Appeal News Service) - The 10-day period to appeal Douglas County's conditional approval of a Walmart Supercenter in south Gardnerville has passed, with no one challenging the county's design review to a higher board, county assistant planner Dirk Goering said Monday.

"Now, they (developers) have two years to build Walmart," he said.

Conceptual designs for The Marketplace at Virginia Ranch show 11 commercial buildings clustered around the front and west sides of the 152,495-square-foot superstore, acting as a buffer between the store and Highway 395.

Ranging in size from 6,500 square feet to 16,600 square feet, the buildings, along with Walmart, put the total commercial square footage of the project around 267,216 square feet.

The 24-acre commercial site is part of the 226-acre Virginia Ranch Specific Plan approved in 2004. The development includes more than 1,000 residential units and up to 100 acres of commercial zoning, including the Walmart site.
