Growth must continue, and the city of Sparks is one of two main areas where that growth will occur. That's according to Sparks Mayor Ed Lawson. 'The region is projected to add more than 100,000 new residents by 2030, and quite frankly, we are running out of land,' he said yesterday as part of his annual state of the city address.
