DESIGN REVIEW for a proposed warehouse/office building on 0.7 acres in an M-1 (Light Manufacturing) Zone. Generally located on the north side of Richmar Avenue, 1,300 feet east of Redwood Street within Enterprise. The staff is working with the applicant for an appropriate waiver for this project.
1. UC-0412-04 (ET-0115-07) – SILVERADO CENTER, LLC: Held: No applicant. PC item 7.
USE PERMIT FIRST EXTENSION OF TIME to review the reduction of the separation distance between a check cashing use and residential use in conjunction with an existing retail center on 3.4 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone in the MUD-1 Overlay District. Generally located on the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard South and the north side of Silverado Ranch Boulevard within Enterprise.
2, UC-0437-07 – NEVADA POWER: TAB Approved: Per Staff recommendations. PC item 22.
USE PERMIT to establish and maintain an electrical substation.
DESIGN REVIEW for an electrical substation on 4.1 acres in an M-1 (Light Manufacturing) Zone. Generally located on the southeast corner of Warm Springs Road and Edmond Street (alignment) within Enterprise. Warm Springs will cross the Union Pacific RR tracks just east of this property. As a result, Warm Springs will be below grade along the northern edge of this property, which will require a retaining wall to be built. The county engineer feels that landscaping along the top of the retaining wall could damage the retaining wall over time.
3. UC-0442-07 – OLYMPIA GROUP: TAB approved: with 4 year review. PC item 23.
USE PERMIT to allow a temporary sales trailer on a portion of 65.0 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone, an H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) Zone, and a P-C (Planned Community Overlay District) Zone in the Southern Highlands Master Planned Community. Generally located on the east side of Southern Highlands Parkway, and north of St. Rose Parkway within Enterprise. This permit provides for a modular building to be used as a sales office during the construction of a major condo project.
4. VS-0380-07 – MOUNTAIN'S EDGE: TAB Approved. PC Item 25.
AMENDED HOLDOVER VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located between Mountains Edge Parkway and Haleh Avenue, and between Riley Street and El Capitan Way, and a portion of right-of-way being Haleh Avenue located between El Capitan Way and Riley Street, and a portion of right-of-way being Juliano Street between Haleh Avenue and Mountains Edge Parkway, and a portion of right-of-way being Riley Road between Mountains Edge Parkway and Haleh Avenue, and a portion of right-of-way being Mountains Edge Parkway between El Capitan Way and Riley Street (previously notified as Haleh Avenue), and a portion of El Capitan Way between Haleh Avenue and Mountains Edge Parkway in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone, an R-D (Suburban Estates Residential) Zone (previously not notified), and an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) Zone (previously not notified) in the Mountain's Edge Master Planned Community within Enterprise.
5, WS-0401-07 – TRINIDAD, BEN & LINAH: TAB Approved. PC item 27.
WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to reduce setbacks on 0.1 acres in an R-3 (Multiple Family Residential) Zone. Generally located on the east side of Friant Street, 80 feet south of Richmar Avenue within Enterprise. This waiver allows an addition to accommodate a handicapped child.
6. WS-0409-07 – PRINCE DEVELOPMENT, LLC: TAB Denied. PC item 28.
WAIVERS OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for the following: 1) increase wall height; and 2) increase finished grade height in conjunction with a proposed residential development on 7.6 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone. Generally located on the southeast corner of Valley View Boulevard and Arby Avenue within Enterprise. This item generated a lot of discussion without a satisfactory resolution. The project is an approved 15 unit housing project on 5 acres. The problem is the intersection of Valley View and Arby is a hump, approximately four to six feet high, and that high point determines the fill required. An earlier project in the area wanted to remove the hump. However, there are two large fuel pipe lines under the intersection which make it very difficult/costly to remove the hump. The applicant is required to fill his property to be 18 inches above the high point of the Valley View/Arby intersection. The neighbors to the east are severely impacted. The fill will come to the top of their current back wall then add another six feet. County Civil Engineer would not provide an alternative solution. It is possible that a hydro-geology study for the intersection would allow for less fill needed and a lower retaining wall required. This item needs to be referred to the Board of County Commissioners. The BCC has the authority to direct Civil Engineering to find a better solution.
7. DR-0355-07–SUNSET BEACH GIRLS, LLC: TAB Approved: With the condition that the outside lighting source not be visible from outside the property. BCC item 4.
DESIGN REVIEW for signage and lighting in conjunction with an approved office/warehouse project on 5.7 acres in an M-D (Designed Manufacturing) Zone in the MUD-2 Overlay District. Generally located on the north side of Blue Diamond Road and the west side of Kens Court, 650 feet east of Jones Boulevard within Enterprise. The TAB was concerned with the spillover of light to the adjacent properties. One problem in the past is the light source is visible from a long distance off, creating light pollution. The applicant has a lighting diagram which shows the amount of lighting on the ground. However, this does not address how far the light source can be seen. The applicant has agreed to shield the light source.
8. WS-1253-06 (ET-0107-07) – SILVER CREEK I, LLC: Held: No applicant. BCC item 19.
WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS FIRST EXTENION OF TIME to extend an off-site improvement bond in a C-1 (Local Business) Zone. Generally located on the southwest corner of Tenaya Way and Warm Springs Road within Enterprise.
9. UC-0363-07 – MAJESTIC NEVADA, INC: TAB Approved: per staff conditions. BCC item 20.
USE PERMIT for modifications to previously approved additions to a resort hotel.
DESIGN REVIEWS for the following: 1) a parking garage; 2) signage on the parking garage; and 3) exterior modifications to the existing 4 story main building in conjunction with a resort hotel (Silverton) on a portion of 70.5 acres in an H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) (AE-65) Zone in the MUD-2 Overlay District. Generally located on the south side of Blue Diamond Road and the west side of Interstate 15 within Enterprise. With the new portion of Dean Martin/Industrial road open, the Silverton is starting their next phase of expansion. They are going to construct a new six-story parking garage which will provide 1772 parking places. The color scheme is light brown and tan. In addition, the exterior of the hotel will be remodeled to resemble the Bass Pro Shops.
10. UC-0460-07 – GOFF FAMILY TRUST: TAB Denied. BCC item 24.
USE PERMITS for the following: 1) reduce the required separation for a proposed on-premise consumption of alcohol establishment (tavern) from an existing residential use; 2) reduce the required separation for a proposed convenience store from an existing residential use; 3) reduce the required separation for a proposed car wash from an existing residential use; and 4) permit a wash bay to face a public street.
DESIGN REVIEW for a shopping center on 3.8 acres in a C-1 (Local Business) Zone and C-2 (General Commercial) Zone.
WAIVER OF CONDITIONS of a zone change (NZC-0339-04) (WC-0042-06)) requiring development per revised site plan on file dated February 3, 2006. Generally located on the east side of Fort Apache Road and the north side of Gomer Road within Enterprise. A similar project was approved on this property in Feb 2006. Since that time, many residents have moved in: they were apparently not informed of the existing plans for the site. This is a new design with an increase in the tavern allowing gaming and food by providing extra space. The proposed shopping center consists of five commercial/retail buildings. The three proposed retail buildings include a tavern/restaurant, convenience store and car wash. These buildings all require setback waivers from residential uses. The tavern is 126 ft where 200 ft is required; the convenience store is 50 ft where 200 ft is required and the car wash is 50 ft where 200 ft is required. The TAB felt that waivers of this magnitude violate the spirit and intent of Title 30. The TAB was surprised that the staff called these waiver reasonable. Residents of the area were primarily concerned with the convenience store, gas station, and car wash. The convenience store is 50 ft from established residences is a real hardship imposed upon the residents. The 24-hour operation really needs the full 200 ft set back from the residences. It is noted that this area needs some retail, but this project is not suitable for this location. A neighborhood meeting is scheduled for June 5 at 5 pm to discuss ways the site design can be modified.
11, VC-0418-07 – ASTORIA AUGUSTA, LLC: TAB approved: per staff conditions. BCC item 26.
VARIANCES for the following: 1) to increase wall height; and 2) allow an accessory use prior to a principal uses on 46.2 acres in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) P-C (Planned Community Overlay District) Zone in the Southern Highlands Master Planned Community. Generally located on the south side of Golf Estates Drive, 550 feet west Robert Trent Jones Lane within Enterprise. This project is being built on very hilly terrain and will require extensive retaining walls. The staff conditions ensures these retaining walls will function the way there are intended to.
12. WS-0429-07 – ARDEN INDUSTRIAL PARK, LLC: Held for one month: This hold was requested by the applicant. BCC item 54.
WAIVERS OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for the following: 1) landscaping; and 2) off-site improvements (excluding paving).
DESIGN REVIEW for outside storage as a principal use on 6.1 acres in an M-1 (Light Manufacturing) Zone. Generally located on the east side of Redwood Street and the south side of Gary Avenue within Enterprise.
13. WT-0423-07 – AMERICAN WEST DEVELOPMENT: TAB Approved. BCC item 32.
WAIVER to extend the time limit for an improvement bond in conjunction with a residential subdivision in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) P-C (Planned Community Overlay District) Zone in Pinnacle Peaks. Generally located on the west side of Torrey Pines Drive and the north side of Wigwam Avenue within Enterprise.
14. WT-0419-07 – OLYMPIA GROUP, LLC: TAB Approved: per staff conditions. BCC item 27.
WAIVERS for the following: 1) allow early grading; and 2) establish modified improvement standards on approximately 46.2 acres in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) P-C (Planned Community Overlay District) Zone in the Southern Highlands Master Planned Community. Generally located on the south side of Golf Estates Drive, 550 feet west of Robert Trent Jones Lane within Enterprise. This project was previously approved with smaller lots. The developer has added approximately 4000 sq ft to each lot. The total number of lots is now 117 down from 140. The staff had several concerns which the applicant has fixed. One of the modified improvement standards is a 1700 ft cul-de-sac where five hundred ft is allowed. This is a fire department requirement. The applicant has provided a larger than normal turnaround to accommodate the largest fire truck.
15. ZC-0452-07 – BLUE DIAMOND CAPITAL GROUP LLC, ET AL: TAB Approved Zone Change: Denied Waiver of Development Standards and Design Review. BCC item 47.
ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 2.1 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone to C-2 (General Commercial) Zone.
WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to reduce the number of loading spaces.
DESIGN REVIEW for a shopping center. Generally located on the west side of Rainbow Boulevard, 280 feet south of Wigwam Avenue within Enterprise (description on file). This project has two retail buildings with just under 25,000 sq ft of space. The parking requirement was reduced by using a mixed-use (retail and restaurants) standard, and a bicycle rack to reduce the number of parking spaces required. One loading spot was provided where two is required. The applicant intends to have a family-type restaurant as a tenant. Most restaurants of this kind are free-standing not in an inline building. The single loading space is not sufficient for several restaurants. Also, the parking area could only accommodate small and medium delivery vehicles. Not enough turn room is provided. The other deficiency is no delivery capability in the rear of the building. The plan has cross access to the west but not to the north. This isolates the property to the north. The TAB’s opinion is too much is crammed into this property. The project is not well designed.
