To all residents in the Southwest Area; It is very apparent that there is a significant traffic problem that needs to be addressed immediately. The speed limit on West Wigwam is 35 mph and on any one of the side streets 25 mph. There are many children and no sidewalks. People ride horses, walk their dogs, and ride bicycles on these streets. Daily, especially in the early mornings between 5:30 am & 8:00 am and in the evenings between 4:30 pm & 7:00 pm, there are many vehicles traveling up and down West Wigwam at speeds in excess of 60 to 90 mph and on the side streets in excess of 45 to 50 mph. There are many heavy dump trucks using these roads as well. According to NHP these trucks are not permitted by law to be utilizing residential streets as a travel route and many of the side streets are actually restricted. The only way to get these dangerous problems addressed is ask for police service/patrol from Metro and NHP to stop it. Please call the Southwest Sub Station at 828-2843 and ask for police service, as well call NHP at 486-4100 and ask for commercial enforcement service. You will see it will be addressed quickly, but we need everyone to call, not just one or two. please make the call.
The above information applies to roads in all areas of the Southwest (not just the area around Rainbow/Wigwam). If you are in an RNP or suburban area and see inappropriate traffic/driving, call and make a report. We need a lot of calls though, so post the numbers and keep them handy.

1. WS-0118-05 (ET-0045-07) – RANCHO DESTINO ESTATES, LLC: TAB Approved
WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS FIRST EXTENSION OF TIME to commence a subdivision with reduced lot sizes on 4.0 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone. Generally located on the south side of Siddall Avenue and the east side of Rancho Destino Road within Enterprise. The first extension of time is routinely approved.
2. UC-0148-07 – LASWELL INVESTMENT TRUST: TAB approved with 1 yr review
USE PERMITS for the following: 1) accessory structure design standards; and 2) alternative material design standards for an accessory structure in conjunction with an existing residence on 0.6 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone in an MUD-4 Overlay District. Generally located on the east side of Giles Street, 180 feet north of Moberly Avenue (alignment) within Enterprise. This structure is a result of complaints to public response about excessive amounts of junk in the yard. The 864 sq ft structure is larger than the house on the property. The owner has made a lot of progress in cleaning up the property. The TAB felt a one year review was appropriated to insure the clean up is done.
3. UC-0166-07 – BLUE DIAMOND MARKET PLACE, LLC: TAB approved Waiver of development standards #2, and denied #1
USE PERMIT for a convenience store within an approved building.
WAIVERS OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for the following: 1) reduce the setback from a convenience store to a residential use; and 2) reduce the landscape buffer requirement from a commercial use to a less intense use in conjunction with an approved shopping center building on 23.1 acres in an H-2 (General Highway Frontage) Zone and C-2 (General Commercial) Zone in the MUD-4 Overlay District. Generally located on the north side of Blue Diamond Road and the east side of Cimarron Road within Enterprise. The set back for the convenience store (7-Eleven) was 8 ft where 200 is required. The undeveloped property to the north is R-3 residential. There are houses 100 ft to the west. The applicant stated they had leased the location to 7-Eleven and it could not be changed. The TAB felt a 24 hour operation was not appropriate at the proposed location. The second waiver was a result of a crooked property line.
4. VS-0005-07 – JSAH, LLC: TAB Approved
AMENDED HOLDOVER VACATE AND ABANDON portions of right-of-way being Jones Boulevard and Gary Avenue (previously notified as a portion of right-of-way being Gary Avenue) between Jones Boulevard and Duneville Street, and easements of interest to Clark County located between Silverado Ranch Boulevard and Gary Avenue, and between Jones Boulevard and Duneville Street in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone within Enterprise (description on file).

WAIVERS OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for the following: 1) alternative landscaping materials; and 2) alternative landscape buffer standards.
DESIGN REVIEW for modifications to an approved shopping center on 4.3 acres in an H-2 (General Highway Frontage) Zone in the MUD-4 Overlay District. Generally located on southwest corner of Blue Diamond Road and Cimarron Road within Enterprise. A bank tenant has been added to the center pad site in the development and the bank facility will have 4 drive-thru lanes on the north side of the building. Furthermore, the retail building in the southwest corner of the development is to be moved west to accommodate street redesign issues on Cimarron Road and the shopping center layout. The applicant indicates the previous setback was 30 feet from the west property line with a drive lane between the building and the residential property for delivery trucks and trash collection vehicles. The revised setback is now 15 feet from the west property line and there is no longer a drive lane on the west side of the building adjacent to the residential property. There are other minor modifications to the site such as square footage changes to other buildings. The developer has entered into an agreement with Mountain's Edge Master Developer to the west to use their landscape pallet within this development. The Mountain's Edge landscape pallet provides for different species of plants other than the Title 30 landscape list.
11. UC-0130-05 (ET-0028-07) – R. I. HERITAGE INN OF FLINT, INC: TAB denied
USE PERMIT FIRST EXTENSION OF TIME to commence shopping center uses.
DESIGN REVIEW for a hotel condominium tower with shopping center uses on 4.6 acres in an H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) Zone in the MUD-1 Overlay District. Generally located on the northwest corner of Robindale Road and Haven Street within Enterprise. The original application (UC-0130-05) was approved in April 2005. ZC-0137-91 was approved in October 1991, subject to design review as a public hearing to the Board of County Commissioners and an A-1 landscape buffer (zoning code setback) along the rear of the shopping center. The problem with this item is the design presented at the TAB and the Notice of final Action (April 2005) specifications do not match. The design review presented was for a larger project than approved in the Notice of Final Action (Apr 2005). The applicant did not help to clear the confusion up. The TAB requested a 30 day hold to have staff research the correct design review criteria. The applicant was unwilling to hold the item due to financial considerations. This statement conflicts with the information put out during the neighborhood meeting where the applicant stated they were self-financed with sufficient reserves to do this project. Yet, the applicant has indicated in the Extension of Time they are having trouble financing the project due to rising construction and interest cost. It must be determined whether this is an Extension of Time of the original design review or a new design review subject to a full review by the TAB and BCC. The TAB did not want to approve the design review presented by the applicant due to the differences between the Extension of Time and the Notice of Final Action. If this is a new design review, the area residents have the right to ask for modifications that would fit with the current development of the area. The inconsistencies must be corrected and the application be sent back to the TAB for a complete hearing before going to the BCC. This item is #11 on consent agenda for Mar 21, 2007 BBC
12. VS-1032-04 (ET-0006-07) – L H VENTURES, LLC: TAB Approved
HOLDOVER VACATE AND ABANDON FIRST EXTENSION OF TIME for easements of interest to Clark County located between Wigwam Avenue and Cougar Avenue (alignment), and between Rainbow Boulevard and Redwood Street (alignment), and a portion of Rainbow Boulevard located between Cougar Avenue (alignment) and Wigwam Avenue in an R-3 (Multiple Family Residential) Zone in the Pinnacle Peaks Concept Plan area within Enterprise.
13. ZC-0090-04 (ET-0031-07) – SV LAND, LLC: TAB Approved
ZONE CHANGE FIRST EXTENSION OF TIME to reclassify 5.0 acres from C-2 (General Commercial) Zone to M
USE PERMIT to allow retail uses as a principal use.
WAIVERS OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for the following: 1) reduce parking; and 2) permit tandem parking.
DESIGN REVIEW for an automobile paint and body shop and a retail building. Generally located between Maule Avenue and Badura Avenue, and the east side of El Camino Road (alignment) within Enterprise.
14. ZC-0758-05 (WC-0043-07) – RICHMOND AMERICAN HOMES: TAB denied
WAIVER OF CONDITIONS OF A ZONE CHANGE requiring the applicant to incorporate an interior to exterior noise level reduction of 25 decibels into the building construction as required by Table 30.48 of the Clark County Development Code on 13.7 acres in an RUD (Residential Urban Density) Zone in conjunction with constructed single family residences in a subdivision. Generally located on the southeast corner of Windmill Lane and Warbonnet Way within Enterprise. This was the second controversial item discussed. A major developer constructed the initial phase of a project without meeting the county building code for noise reduction within an Airport Environs zone. There are 16 to 19 houses covered by this request. One unanswered question is why the developer did not immediately stop construction when the error was discovered; an inspection of the property reveals construction is still under way. Aircraft noise has been and will be a major problem around airports; therefore, building code requirements were developed to mitigate aircraft noise. The TAB, after reviewing the information presented, felt the existing homes must be brought up to code or it will create a 30 to 50 year problem for the residents and the county. The original zone change was submitted without plans and did not require a design review. This is another example for the need to have plans submitted with any zone change. The county code needs to be changed to require plan submittal with any zone change. Item #34 on Mar 21, 2007 BBC.
15. WS-0179-07 – EAGLE RAINBOW CENTER. LLC: TAB Approved: Applicant withdrew Design Review # 2
WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for increased building height.
DESIGN REVIEW for the following: 1) a retail shopping center and 2) manmade decorative water feature on 7.9 acres in a C-1 (Local Business) Zone.
WAIVERS OF CONDITIONS of a zone change for the following: 1) access to El Dorado Lane only; 2) all buildings to be constructed on the property shall be single story; 3) 20 foot wide landscape buffer along the perimeter walls on the west and south sides of the project; 4) at least seven Mexican Fan palm trees that are at least 20 feet in height planted adjacent to and along the east side of the in-line retail shops. Generally located on the west side of Rainbow Boulevard and the south side of Mardon Avenue within Enterprise. The plans show an upscale, nicely designed, retail center that will be an asset to the area. This plan replaces a mini-storage design that was originally approved, this is a good change.
16. ZC-0135-07 – VENTO INVESTMENTS. LLC: TAB Approved
ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 2.5 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone to C-1 (Local Business) Zone in the MUD-3 Overlay District.
DESIGN REVIEW for retail buildings. Generally located on the southwest corner of Decatur Boulevard and Windmill Lane within Enterprise (description on file). The plans show an L-shaped single story, 15,044 sq ft retail center. A restaurant is located in the northeast corner. The project appears to be a medium level retail shopping area.
