PLANNING & ZONING ITEMS:
1. DR-0574-07 – SOLEIL LV, LLC: TAB Approved
DESIGN REVIEW for the expansion of a previously approved parking garage in conjunction with a hotel condominium/timeshare project on a portion of 27.0 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) (AE-65) Zone. Generally located on the east side of Giles Street and the north side of Warm Springs Road within Enterprise.
This request adds one floor to the current parking garage and brings the applicant within 10 parking spaces required for the project.
2. DR-0592-07 – LV BLVD PAD PARTNERS, LLC: TAB Approved
DESIGN REVIEW for a parking lot in conjunction with an existing hotel (Hilton Garden Inn) on 1.7 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 Moberly Avenue within Enterprise.
The applicant requested two parking lots between their building and Las Vegas Blvd while their parking garage is being built.
3. UC-0412-04 (ET-0115-07) – SILVERADO CENTER, LLC: TAB Approved: Per staff conditions: 3 to 1
HOLDOVER 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.
4. SC-0642-07 – OLYMPIA GROUP, LLC: TAB Approved: 3 to 1
STREET NAME CHANGE for an existing public street currently named St. Rose Parkway abutting H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) and C-2 (General Commercial) Zoned properties to both the north and the south in the Southern Highlands Master Planned Community. Generally located between Southern Highlands Parkway and Interstate 15 within Enterprise. .
The TAB discussed the street naming convention and the policies attached. This particular name change is contrary to current policies. However, the comments from the citizens present (who have to use the intersection in question) indicated this is a positive name change. This road name change will help direct traffic in the right direction (Henderson to the east and Southern Highlands to the west) eliminating some of the confusion regarding this interchange.
5. UC-0582-07 – SOUTH MARYLAND PLAZA, LLC: TAB Approved.
USE PERMIT for a convenience store on a portion of 2.4 acres in a C-1 (Local Business) Zone in the MUD-4 Overlay District. Generally located on the northeast corner of Maryland Parkway and Levi Avenue within Enterprise.
The Use Permit drew a fair amount of comment from the neighbors about the traffic and hours for the convenience store. The lack of gas pumps will limit the amount of traffic for the convenience store. There is a 24 hour tavern located next to the convenience store which makes it impractical to place operational hour limits on the convenience store.
6. UC-0609-07 – LOS REYES CORPORATION: TAB Approved: 3 to 1. Conditions: 1). No light spill over onto residential property; 2). Carwash hours restricted to 7:00 am to 10 pm; and 3). 2 yr review.
USE PERMITS for the following: 1) reduce the setback from a carwash to any residential use; and 2) reduce the setback from outside dining to residential development on a separate property.
DESIGN REVIEW for a car wash and a redesign of a previously approved convenience store on 1.2 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone. Generally located on the southeast corner of Silverado Ranch Boulevard and Fairfield Street within Enterprise.
The previous BCC approval restricted the noise coming from a proposed fast food squawk box. The carwash is taking the place of the original fast food-drive through. The applicant agreed to limit the carwash hours of operation, as has been done at other locations where a carwash is near residential property. A two year review was established to ensure compliance.
7. UC-0618-07 – CLARK COUNTY (PUBLIC WORKS): TAB Approved
USE PERMIT for an extension to an existing communications tower on a portion of 1.8 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) (AE-65) Zone. Generally located on the south side of I-215 Beltway, 300 feet west of Rogers Street within Enterprise.
8. VS-0576-07 – ROLEV 1, LLC & ENE-MENOR MIRELA: TAB Approved
VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located within the property on the south side of Maule Avenue and 180 feet east of Schuster Street in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) (AE-65) Zone within Enterprise (description on file).
9. VS-0596-07 – NASSIRI LIVING TRUST: TAB Held for two weeks
VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located on the northeast corner of I-15 and Blue Diamond Road (new alignment), and a portion of a right-of-way being Blue Diamond Road (old alignment) located between I-15 and Las Vegas Boulevard South in an H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) (AE-65) Zone in the MUD-1 and MUD-2 Overlay Districts within Enterprise (description on file).
This was an unusual discussion. It appears the ownership of the property is in dispute. There were opposing lawyers making statements on who owned the property. The applicant was not willing to hold the item which is a warning flag to the TAB. The TAB did not want to take any action that could be used as an endorsement of one side or the other.
10. VS-0601-07 – UNITED BROTHERHOOD OF CARPENTERS AND JOINERS: TAB approved per staff Conditions
VACATE AND ABANDON easement of interest to Clark County located south of Pamalyn Avenue (alignment) between Placid Street and La Cienega Street in an M- 1 (Light Manufacturing) (AE-65 & AE-70) Zone within Enterprise (description on file).
11. VS-0636-07 – CELEBRATE LEGENDS, LLC, ET AL: TAB Denied: Companion item # 14
VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located between Gilespie Street and Haven Street, 300 feet south of Windmill Lane, and a portion of right-of-way being Rancho Destino Road located between Windmill Lane and Shelbourne Avenue in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone within Enterprise (description on file).
The TAB denied the VACATE AND ABANDON because Rancho Destino is an essential street and should not be vacated, especially in light of the greatly increased traffic through this neighborhood. Gillespie and Giles Streets are rapidly becoming over-trafficked. The TAB felt the project was not viable without the vacation of Rancho Destino, and would have to be redesigned to allow for the street.
NOTE: Tentative Map Application” means a request filed with the Zoning Administrator to request a review of a proposed major subdivision.
This project also has a tentative map that was not presented for discussion at the TAB. The tentative map must also be appealed if the PC approves the project. This is a case where the Vacate and Abandon can be denied and the tentative map approved. The tentative map approval would vacate Rancho Destino. Any appeal must be based upon UC-0305-01,VS-0306-01 and TM-0089-01.
12. UC-1277-06 (WC-0165-07) – DAVID L. FISH REVOCABLE TRUST: TAB Approved
WAIVER OF CONDITIONS of a use permit limiting the maximum area of an accessory building to 9,000 square feet on 1.1 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (AE-70) Zone. Generally located on the east side of Valley View Boulevard, 300 feet north of Martin Avenue within Enterprise.
This item was previously approved in Nov 2006. The applicant, who has lived on the property for almost 30 years, stated the measurements used by the original design firm were incorrect and this waiver is to correct the size of the building. Warehouses surround this property. One of the warehouse owners objected to the use of an accessory structure. His belief is the property should be rezoned in accordance with the Land Use Plan as ‘light industrial.’ The TAB did not feel a zone change was appropriate under the circumstances, since the property owner lives there and the proposed building will house his vehicle collection.
13. WS-0572-07 – SHTOK, ALEX: TAB hold: No applicant
WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to reduce the rear setback for an addition to a single family residence on 0.5 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone. Generally located on the southwest corner of Velvet Crest Lane and Sedalia Street within Enterprise.
14. WS-0637-07 – CELEBRATE LEGENDS, LLC, ET AL: TAB Denied: See Item # 11
WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to reduce lot size in conjunction with a single family subdivision on 17.0 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone. Generally located on the west side of Gilespie Street, 300 feet south of Windmill Lane within Enterprise.
Although the waiver of lot size requested is within the 10% generally granted, the design depends on vacating Rancho Destino which would adversely impact other residents in the area.
15. WT-0597-07 – RHODES RANCH, G.P.: TAB Approved
WAIVERS for the following: 1) reduce the driveway setbacks between the back of curb return and driveway; and 2) allow modified sidewalk ramp with modified roll curb within a residential development on 58.0 acres in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) P-C (Planned Community Overlay District) Zone in the Rhodes Ranch Master Planned Community. Generally located on the east side of Fort Apache Road and the south side of Augusta Course Avenue within Enterprise and Spring Valley.
16. ZC-0623-07 – PEBBLE PINES LLC: TAB Denied
ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 5.0 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone to U-V (Urban Village - Mixed Use) Zone in the MUD-3 Overlay District.
USE PERMIT to reduce the residential proximity standard.
DESIGN REVIEW for a mixed-use development. Generally located on the south side of Pebble Road (alignment), 300 feet west of El Camino Road within Enterprise (description on file).
This is a conforming zone change from R-E zoning within the MUD-3 Overlay District to U-V zoning on 5 acres, with a design review and use permit to reduce residential proximity to an existing home east of the site. The plans depict a 7-building complex. There is a 3-building, 4-story, 160 unit residential multi-family complex located on the south portion of the site. Also, a 4-building, 2-story, 23,685 square foot commercial component with upper floor residential uses is located along the Pebble Road frontage. A single family residence abuts this property on the west.
The TAB views this project as an apartment complex project with a small amount of commercial. While the project is described as a MUD project, it would create additional load on the infrastructure and schools without directly contributing to either. The objective of MUD is to lighten the load on community resources. This project is a prime example of increased density without the corresponding benefits of the larger MUD projects (e.g. reduced traffic). MUD, as it is applied here, invalidates the Enterprise Land Use Plan by use of an overlay that does not accurately reflect what can realistically be built on a particular piece of land. In this case, the land is planned for RNP at 2 units per acre. The MUD project would have a density of 32 units per acre. This project also has underground parking, and the applicant would not preclude blasting. The project, at this time, has no access to Blue Diamond Rd on the south and no direct access to the north. The primary ingress/egress would be Pebble to Rainbow (west only) since Pebble to the east dead-ends at the railroad track. The project is not located in a high enough traffic area to support the commercial proposed.
SWAN reviewed a project on this property earlier this year which had more commercial and less residential. The applicant implied that SWAN had approved the current project which is not true.
17. DR-0557-07 – RONALD REISS FAMILY TRUST, ET AL: TAB Approved: Per staff conditions
DESIGN REVIEW for a proposed shopping center including a tavern with a banquet facility and a restaurant with a drive-thru window on 2.5 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone. Generally located on the east side of Rainbow Boulevard, 285 feet north of Pyle Avenue within Enterprise.
18. WS-1253-06 (ET-0107-07) – SILVER CREEK I, LLC: TAB Approved: Per staff conditions
HOLDOVER 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.
19. UC-0578-07 – TOP SHELF DEVELOPMENT, LLC: TAB Approved: Per staff conditions
USE PERMIT to reduce the separation between an on-premise consumption of alcohol establishment (tavern) and residential development on a separate property.
DESIGN REVIEW for a tavern on a portion of 2.1 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone. Generally located on the northwest corner of Fort Apache Road and Huntington Cove Parkway within Enterprise.
The Use Permit is required because the tavern is located next to a landscaping strip that is zoned residential. However, the nearest residence is almost 200 feet away across the road to the south.
20. WS-0429-07 – ARDEN INDUSTRIAL PARK, LLC: TAB Approved
AMENDED HOLDOVER 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.
WAIVER OF CONDITIONS of a zone change (ZC-1812-95) stating traffic study will be required with development (previously not notified). Generally located on the east side of Redwood Street and the south side of Gary Avenue within Enterprise.
This facility is designed to provide an income for the property owner while the final plans for the property are developed. The final plans may not be known for 5 years. In the interim the parcel will be paved and surrounded by a chain link fence.
21. ZC-0445-07 – BADURA REDWOOD 16, LLC: TAB Approved: Per staff conditions
ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 4.2 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone to M-D (General Commercial) Zone.
USE PERMIT for offices as a primary use
WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to reduce setbacks
DESIGN REVIEW for an office/warehouse complex in the MUD-3 and CMA Design Overlay Districts. Generally located on the southeast corner of Badura Avenue and Redwood Street within Enterprise (description on file).
22. ZC-0589-07 – TAYLOR, TOMMY D.: TAB Approved
ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 1.1 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (AE-65) Zone to M-D (Designed Manufacturing) (AE-65) Zone.
DESIGN REVIEW for a warehouse building with outdoor storage. Generally located on the west side of Placid Street, 150 feet north of Arby Avenue (alignment) within Enterprise (description on file).
This property was changed to Design Manufacturing in the last Enterprise Land Use amendment. One neighbor wanted additional wall height to 8 ft and landscaping along the north and west property boundaries. The TAB did not agree with those requests.
23. ZC-0600-07 – WINDMILL CIMARRON, LLC: TAB Approved
ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 5.0 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone to C-1 (Local Business) Zone for a shopping center.
DESIGN REVIEW for a shopping center with one future pad site and one future pharmacy pad site with a drive thru window. Generally located on the south side of Windmill Lane and the west side of Cimarron Road within Enterprise (description on file).
The plans show 2 proposed shopping center buildings on the southwest portion of the parcel with 20,250 square feet of shopping center lease area, a 16,756 square foot pharmacy building on one pad site at the north end of the parcel nearest Windmill Lane, and a 3,200 square foot pad site building on the southeast portion of the site. The applicant is providing 185 parking spaces where 161 parking spaces are required.
The project plans provide a 15 ft buffer for the RNP housing being built to the south. The RNP housing builder to the south was not present at the TAB nor had they made any request to modify the buffer. The net result is several of the houses will have a commercial building 45 ft from their backdoor. This should be disclosed to potential buyers prior to the sale. Currently no one is living in the RNP development, although four houses are under construction.
24. ZC-0602-07 – BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT: TAB Approved
ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 25.0 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone to P-F (Public Facility) Zone for a public high school.
USE PERMIT for a public high school.
DESIGN REVIEW for a public high school. Generally located on the west side of Rainbow Boulevard and the north side of Shelbourne Avenue within Enterprise (description on file).
The major concern with this project is the amount of traffic that will need Rainbow to access the school, and possible school zone speed limits on Rainbow.
25. ZC-0627-07 – DAVIS FAMILY TRUST 1993, ETAL: TAB Approved: 1). Zone Change, 2). Use Permits, and 3). Waiver of Development Standards # One. Denied: 1). Waiver of Development Standards # two, and 2). the Design Review
ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 5.0 acres from an H-2 (General Highway Frontage) Zone to H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) Zone for the west 3.2 acres of the site, and C-P (Office & Professional) Zone for the east 1 .8 acres of the site in the MUD-1 and MUD-4 Overlay Districts.
USE PERMITS for the following: 1) resort condominiums; and 2) increased building height.
WAIVERS OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for the following: 1) reduce the 1 :3 height setback ratio adjacent to an arterial street (Las Vegas Boulevard South); and 2) allow commercial driveway access onto a local residential street (Giles Street).
DESIGN REVIEW for the following: 1) offices on the east side of the site, and 2) resort condominium development with kitchens in rooms and associated retail and restaurant uses, open space, recreational uses, and pedestrian realm areas on the west side of the site. Generally located on the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard South and the south side of Levi Avenue (alignment) within Enterprise (description on file).
This request includes a conforming zone change for the west 3.2 acres to H-1 zoning, and a zone change for the east 1.8 acres to C-P zoning, where the entire parcel is currently zoned H-2. The plans depict a single structure that is limited to 35 feet in height on the C-P zoned eastern portion of the site. The building height increases to 200 feet on the H-1 zoned (west) portion of the site. The C-P zoned area of the site contains 31,170 square feet of office area, and the H-1 zoned area of the site contains 616 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom resort condominiums. The resort condominium high-rise tower includes 42,710 square feet of bars/lounges, business center, fitness center, media room, play room, and sky lounge area. The fitness center, media room, sky lounge, and a pool are located on the rooftop. A second pool is located on the fourth-floor terrace. The reduction to the 1:3 height setback ratio from Las Vegas Boulevard South affects the resort condominium tower on the west side of the site; and involves 12 square feet of building area at a height of 165 feet above grade.
The enclosed parking garage at 35 ft high will be in between the condo tower and the office professional. WAIVER #1 applies only to a small portion of one tower on the N.W. corner of the property, would be only a 4% reduction, and is inconsequential. WAIVER 2) was to allow commercial access, e.g.., delivery trucks, trash trucks, etc. on Giles St. Obviously, adjoining single- family residents within the RNP are not pleased at having this large building and use across Giles St. from them. Hence, the residents (and SWAN) do not want commercial access via Giles. However, the Zone Change and Use Permit are appropriate and other more egregious developments have been proposed and approved along LV Blvd in this area. The TAB approved the Zone Change, Use Permits and Waiver # 1, and one should expect the County to do the same. The TAB denied the Waiver #2 and the Design Review. The applicant did agree to a later Design Review as a Public Hearing to address issues of lightning, facade and surface reflectivity, and landscaping buffer. He also agreed to reconsider the access onto Giles. The TAB recommended that access on Giles be restricted to Public Safety Vehicles. Frankly, this project is not as bad as it could have been. SWAN will work with the developer and neighbors on the Design Review and access issues. It will be important to voice our concerns about these issues before the County Commission, which will meet on Tuesday, July 3, beginning at 11 am. Check the Zoning Commission Agenda.
NEXT MEETING DATE: July 11, 2007 (Wednesday) 6:30 p.m.
