Did you know that Washoe County has designated Silver Knolls as a dark skies area? That means we need to shield our brightest lights to shine down rather than out.

Do you have a reflective blue address sign? They are still available. Text or call Dale at 775-772-3750 and leave a message that you want a blue sign. She will call you back and you can place your order. She asks that you make a minimum donation to the charity of your choice and present the receipt to either the SKCO Board, or to her at pick up / delivery. In an emergency, if the fire department or ambulance needs to find your house, these signs are a huge help, day or night.
