This item is continued.
1. DR-0050-09 — GUSICK, HEATHER M., ET AL: TAB Approved per staff conditions
DESIGN REVIEWS for the following:
1) a residential conversion;
2) a daycare center site; and
3) a pre-school site
on 1.0 acre in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone. Generally located on the west side of Decatur Boulevard. 150 feet north of Oleta Avenue within Enterprise.
This item is a design change from a previously approved plan. One TAB concern is the placement of the outdoor play areas next to future residential property. The property to the west is currently undeveloped. The anticipated use will be 5 days a week during daylight hours which would limit the potential effects on the residential property to the west. The use of an existing residence will serve as a good transition to the RNP-1 to the west, yet it limits the play yard placement. PC consent agenda item # 3
2. UC-0205-02 (ET-0024-09) — PIAZZA LLC: TAB Approved per staff conditions
USE PERMIT SECOND EXTENSION OF TIME to review live entertainment in conjunction with a restaurant.
WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to reduce the separation requirements for outdoor live entertainment in conjunction with a restaurant within a shopping center on 4.4 acres in an H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) Zone in the MUD-1 Overlay District. Generally located on the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard South and Robindale Road within Enterprise.
The Bootlegger is a long-established, well run restaurant. The staff condition eliminates the review requirement for this Waiver of Development Standards. Given the location and the excellent record of this restaurant, the limitation of the review is warranted. PC consent agenda item # 4
3. UC-0042-09 — BHATIA, DHARAM: TAB Approved per staff conditions
USE PERMIT for a check cashing facility on a portion of 1.2 acres in an H-I (Limited Resort and Apartment) (AE-60) Zone in the MUD-2 Overlay District. Generally located on the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard South, 500 feet south of Warm Springs Road within Enterprise. PC consent agenda item # 10

Note: must have HOA approval

Generally located on the south side of Bernini Drive and the west side of Visconti Way within Enterprise.
The one year review will give the TAB a good indication if the student drop off, operating hours and sound levels are problems for the neighbors. PC consent agenda item # 11
5. UC-0075-09 — PRADO ATTACHED HOMES, LLC: TAB Approved/Denied
Denied Use Permit #1: Density denial based upon cumulative negative effect of mixed-use development on county public services and schools in the immediate area. TAB recommended the previously approved density of 188 units be used for the project.

USE PERMITS for the following:
1) increase density; and
2) reduce the setback from a single family residential use.
DESIGN REVIEW for mixed-use development on 5.2 acres in a U-V (Urban Village - Mixed Use) Zone in the MUD-3 and CMA Design Overlay Districts. Generally located on the east side of Torrey Pines Drive and the north side of Capovilla Avenue within Enterprise.
This item was discussed extensively by the TAB. The TAB has been very concerned with MUD development in Enterprise. This project reflects many of those concerns. The following is a summary of our discussion.
·The cumulative effect of five MUD projects in the area has added 1100+ residential units on 35 acres of land planned for commercial use. This is equal in residential units to the Nevada Trails development.
·MUD projects are primarily high density residential. MUD residents will have to travel to work, shopping, etc., increasing vehicle use.
·Where will the businesses that provide jobs be created?
·The county does not have cost recovery mechanisms in place for services required by this level of development. Each project is below the current point that additional agreements are needed.
·The grocery store density bonus is not enforceable by the county. The TAB has recommend it be eliminated.
·The CMA was designated to help avoid the hazards of aircraft overflight, noise and crashes.
·CMA deed-restricted land prohibits residential uses.
·The School District does not have plans for additional schools. Current schools are at or over capacity.
·The five year plan for the RTC does not show any bus routes in this area.
The applicant’s elevations did not accurately reflect the project design. Specifically, the placement of the commercial elements of the MUD project were not shown.

16. ZC-0058-09 — CREEL FAMILY TRUST: TAB Approved
APPROVED Zone Change
APPROVED Use Permit
APPROVED Waiver of Development Standards #1 excluding paving and gutters
APPROVED Waiver of Development Standards #2 per Staff conditions
APPROVED Waiver of Development Standards #3 allow unpaved parking where paving is required
REQUIRE 2 year review
REQUIRE Design Review as a public hearing for any additional outdoor lighting other than required for security
ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 4.2 acres from R-2 (Medium Density Residential) Zone to R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone for a commercial boarding facility.
USE PERMIT for a commercial boarding facility.
WAIVERS OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for the following:
1) full off-sites (excluding paving);
2) eliminate landscaping; and
3) allow unpaved parking.
Generally located on the south side of Mountains Edge Parkway, 300 feet east of El Capitan Way within Enterprise (description on file).
There were several residents to the north of this project who had questions. The major concern is the off-sites. The paving along Mountain’s Edge Pkwy is required to complete the current travel lanes. The adjacent properties have paving and gutters installed. This the reason the TAB added the condition of gutters. The question of sidewalk design needs to be worked out with public works and can be covered in the Restrictive Covenants Agreement suggested by Civil Engineering. Additionally, concerns about flies and odors resulted in the addition of a 2 year review for this project and the outdoor lighting condition.
Waiver of Development Standards #2 is appropriate because the staff conditions are:
• All existing dead trees to be replaced;
• Berm along Mountain’s Edge Parkway to be planted to cover 25% of area.
BCC morning consent agenda item # 18

1) increased fence height within setbacks;
2) alternative landscaping;
3) attached sidewalk;
4) eliminate setback to access gates;
5) reduced throat depth;
6) allow commercial access onto a local street (Agate Avenue); and
7) reduced driveway width.
DESIGN REVIEW for a banquet facility with manager's unit. Generally located on the southwest corner of Buffalo Drive and Agate Avenue within Enterprise (description on file).
The TAB agreed with the zone change and the outdoor uses. The TAB felt that the outdoor use should be limited to the county definition of daylight hours (6 am to 10 pm). This condition is necessary to protect the MUD project/RNP residents adjacent to the property. It was confirmed by the county staffer present that amplified music is covered by a live entertainment use permit and would require a separate application.
The most discussion was centered on the Waivers Of Development Standards. The TAB position is the off-sites must be developed according to county standards. The applicant wants to develop alternate off-sites in order to not move the current fence. The alternate off-sites are not appropriate because it will set a standard that would be requested along Buffalo as further development occurs. In addition, a approved project on the east side of Buffalo will have the standard county off-sites. The TAB discussed two options:
1. The current off-sites be left in place and a Restrictive Covenants Agreement be put into place for the county standard off-sites in future.
2. The staff recommendations be accepted to do the standard off-sites now.
The county staff stated that position #1 would not be accepted by Public Works. The result is the staff recommendations were approved. BCC morning agenda item # 24

This is a very nice upscale project that will add to the area. There are TAB concerns about the traffic flow on and off Las Vegas Blvd as there is significant congestion in the area now. The other two concerns were how the lighting would affect arriving aircraft and the height of the building vs. the aircraft flight path. The project is located approximately 5000 ft from the end of McCarran runway 01R & L. There is a need to protect the approach and departure paths for the airport.

TAB Approved: with conditions
1. One year review.
2. Five horses permitted. As horses depart the property, they may not be replaced until there are 5 or fewer horses.

The horse stable area is concentrated along the western property line. The horses are owned by a tenant on the property. Both the property owner and the horse owner agreed to try different sanitation methods and not replace horses as they depart the property. The TAB added a one year review to check on the progress of the sanitation efforts.
