What's your budget, are you renting or buying? The area around Virginia lake comes to mind for easy walking, I have seen a few blind people navigating the path alone. Nevada in general does not provide very many social services, stay in California if your brother depends on them. But I looked and here's a list of blind resources: NCB: Reno Resources for Blind and Visually Impaired

Your budget is adequate to buy a home in pretty much any part of Reno. I'm not sure how familiar you are with Reno, you might read through some of the older posts here. Here's a website that lists some areas with walking/hiking trails Reno Area Hiking and Walking Trails You might check those areas for housing nearby. Caughlin Ranch on the west side of McCarran has nice paved walking paths but there are no traffic controls on the streets adjacent which could make it difficult for a blind person to navigate the intersections on the way to the walking trails. Caughlin Ranch like Somersett are very windy. Well, all of Reno is very windy but those areas seem to get the worst of it.

That's impossible to answer there are parts of Sparks that are sort of sketchy and parts that are nice.

If you look at a map of Reno, the two main freeways form a plus sign. Above and to the right of the plus sign is a rectangular area outlined by streets -- generally speaking, that's the sketchy part of Sparks.

Above that, and all the way up, Sparks gets nicer and nicer. Lots of new homes being built (I'm not a realtor) at reasonable prices. Kind of reminds us of the Santa Clarita/Valencia area.
