DISCUSSION & RECOMMENDATION*
1. Recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on Mixed-Use-Development (MUD) within Enterprise. The discussion includes the intent of the MUD, current implementation and recommended changes.
The final draft of the MUD report was distributed to the TAB members for comments and corrections which will be incorporated in the final version. The summary from that report follows.
Mixed-Use Development In Enterprise
Mixed-Use Development study strives to answer three questions. What is the current status of Mixed-Use Development (MUD) within Enterprise Township? Second, is MUD meeting its intended purpose? Third, how can MUD be improved?
This study is based upon the following:
Public hearings by the Enterprise Town Advisory Board (TAB)
Discussions with county staff members
Review of approved MUD projects and Title 30.
The conclusions of the Enterprise TAB follows.
MUD was generated by the Growth Task force in 2004. MUD has developed through the creation of an overlay and changes to Title 30. The process has been accomplished through the adoption of ordnances that draw little public comment. The net effect of these ordnances is a radical change to the Enterprise Land Use Plan.
The Mixed-Use Development, as implemented, does not meet the needs of Clark County. The large MUD projects work well and obtain the objectives set forth by the Board of County Commissioners. However, small MUD projects increase residential density, increase vehicle use and do not pay their share of infrastructure cost. Title 30 focus is on the residential component of MUD while no emphasis is placed on the other MUD components.
The rights and expectations of current residential land owners are not well protected from the effects of MUD projects. Carefully constructed land use plans are significantly modified by the MUD overlay in conjunction with Title 30. The land use balance and orderly transitions built into the land use plans disappear when the MUD overlay is used.
The public review of MUD overlay is less extensive than the major and minor updates to the land use plan. The Title 30 changes that effect land use receive even less citizen input. The result is inappropriate placement of high density residential projects and poor transition from low to high density land uses.
Summary of Recommended Changes to MUD:
Establish mechanism to insure the true capital cost of each MUD project is paid to the county for infrastructure
TAB and CAC review of ordnances to Title 30 changes concerning Mixed-Use Development or land use
Review and amend MUD overlay as part of the land use process
Adopt MUD Land Use Proportions chart
Amend Title 30 to insure proper transitions and buffers.
2. Recommendations for parking formulas within Title 30 for places of worship.
The TAB forwarded a letter to the Board of County Commissioners which requests a change to the parking standards for a place of worship.
3. Receive information regarding proposed changes to Title 3 of the Clark County Code as it relates to establishing a standard absence policy for various boards, commissions, committees and districts appointed by the Board of County Commissioners.
The TAB was briefed on the new county policy for absences that occurs on the different boards. Over the last ten years, none of the Enterprise TAB members would have been affected by this policy.
Comments and dilatation by the general public: Comments will be limited to ten minutes. No action may be taken upon a matters raised under this item on the Agenda until the matter itself has been included on the Agenda.

DESIGN REVIEW for an office/warehouse and retail center in the Pinnacle Peaks Concept Plan area. Generally located on the south side of Warm Springs Road and the west side of Westwind Road within Enterprise (description on file).
This project was designed with the residents to the south in mind. The location, height and set back from the property line helps this project fit in the neighborhood. Also, the likely uses of these buildings will limit customer traffic and hours of operation. The size of the rollup door was increased to allow a vehicle to be stored inside, over night as a security precaution. The land is within the CMA, which makes it better for retail and industrial use rather than housing. PC Agenda Item # 25
3. SC-0226-08 — GILLESPIE B2, LLC & REISSIG, LOUIS M. JR. & OLIVIA I.: TAB Approved
STREET NAME CHANGE to rename a portion of Dale Avenue to Volunteer Boulevard in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone and an R-T (Manufactured Home Residential) Zone.

There is a strong reaction to this application by the residents around the armory. The discussion focused on two areas. First is the current traffic, excessive lighting and noise. The second part focused on the future development of the armory and how it would affect the area. Given the number of problems and concerns, the TAB felt it was better to hold a mediated meeting with the neighbors and the armory commander. Another part of this application not discussed is the staff request for a master plan for the build out on all 50 acres the armory occupies. Given the level of protest, this is a necessary part of the application. BCC Morning Consent Agenda Item # 16

The TAB and the staff opposed this change as being out of place in an area designated for low density residential build out. Also, there is sufficient commercial north and south of this project. As a ten acre parcel, the owner would be able to convert this land to a MUD project with high density residential. The residents would have no option to this conversion other than to accept the MUD project.
