The County Commission, at their February 2, 2011 meeting, directed the staff to move forward on technical studies submitted with the land use application.  The commissioners noted the inputs from citizen groups, developers and Enterprise TAB.  This item should be presented to the TABs for discussion and recommendations when the County Staff further develops their ideas.   

APPROVED: TAB HELD the discussion indefinitely:

The bylaws were discussed with the inputs from Administrative Services and Board members reviewed.  The TAB agreed to take two actions.

1.     The bylaws will be placed on the February 23, 2011 agenda. 

2.     The bylaws will be appended to the February 23, 2011 agenda. 





It is time to update your links to the county web site.  As of February 11, 2011, the only link that will redirect to the new county web site is www.accessclarkcounty.com.  All the internal links on the old web site will no longer work or be redirected.




1.      There was a question about land reserved for the Western Trails Park.  The area residents have been told that some of the land reserved for the Western Trails Park has been returned to the airport.  The TAB is not aware of any land return and the question should be answered by the Park and Trails staff.   


2.      Neighborhood Specialty Grocery Markets was reviewed by the Liquor and Gaming Commission on February 2, 2011.  At this meeting, a convenience store representative stated the proposed ordinance was too similar to their operations and did not want the competition.  The commission then sent the ordinance back to the staff for further modifications.  The following modifications have been made:


·Not less than five hundred square feet, nor more than two thousand square feet of floor space

·Operate during the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

·         Provide for the on-premise consumption of prepared foods and grocery items at tables, booths, or a counter by patrons

·The display size restriction was dropped due to the size restriction.


3.      A member of the public noted that the start time of the TAB meeting is incorrectly noted in the Review Journal newspaper as 6:30 pm.

DESIGN REVIEW for a place of worship on 1.3 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone.  Generally located on the south side of Robindale Road and the east side of Ullom Drive within Enterprise.  SS/gc/xx


The applicant has not conducted a neighborhood meeting prior to the TAB hearing.  The neighbors were under the impression that a neighborhood meeting would be held prior to any plans being presented to the TAB.  The TAB felt a neighborhood meeting is appropriate given the history and location of this project.  The TAB requested the applicant hold this application until the February 23, 2011 TAB and conduct a neighborhood meeting.


2.      UC-0009-11 – REAL EQUITIES, LLC:

APPROVED: per Staff conditions

ADD a Current Planning condition:

   6 month review as a Public Hearing


USE PERMIT to allow a place of worship in conjunction with an existing shopping center on 28.7 acres in an H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) Zone in the MUD-1 Overlay District.  Generally located on the north side of Serene Avenue and the west side of Las Vegas Boulevard South within Enterprise.  SS/mk/ml


This use permit is for Debremihret Saint Michael Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahdo Church.  The church has used this location for over a year to conduct their services.  A County inspection resulted in a building violation for work done without permits.  During the permit process, it was discovered that a use permit had not been issued to allow a place of worship.  The TAB has no objection to the use permit.  The six month review was added to help ensure the corrective work to resolve the building violation is promptly completed.


3.      UC-0015-11 – NEVADA POWER COMPANY:

APPROVED: per Staff conditions


USE PERMIT to reduce the separation between communication towers.


DESIGN REVIEW for a communication tower and associated equipment on a portion of 9.5 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone in the MUD-4 Overlay District.  Generally located on the west side of Spencer Street, 750 feet north of Cactus Avenue within Enterprise.  SS/gc/ml


4.      VS-0019-11 – HARMONY55, LLC:

APPROVED: per Staff conditions


VACATE AND ABANDON a portion of right-of-way being Agate Avenue located between Jerlyn Street and Monte Cristo Way in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone within Enterprise (description on file).  SS/mc/ml


The TAB agreed with the applicant’s request for the vacation.  The plan shows the vacation of a driveway apron located on Agate Avenue and adjacent to a private right-of-way, Casalvieri Street. The vacation allows the applicant to use brick pavers on Casalvieri Street.


This vacation does not impede the equestrian trail along Agate Ave in front of this project. 


The discussion centered on the proper material to be used where the trail crosses between the roadway and the project entrance.  This material should allow sufficient footing for horses to cross safely and provide a surface acceptable to the neighborhood residents.  It appears that there is no county standard for this purpose.


5.      WS-0017-11 – TAGGARD, RICK & ELIZABETH:

APPROVED:  HELD until the February 23, 2011 TAB meeting to allow time for applicant to obtain letters of consent from adjacent neighbors.

9.      TA-0007-11 – SIEGEL COMPANIES, INC:

APPROVED: per Preliminary Staff Conditions


This use be allowed in zone districts C-2 and H-1

This use is not compatible in zone districts M-D, M-1, U-V, and R-5


Text amendment:  to amend Title 30, Chapter 30.08, Table 30.44-1 (Chapter 30.44) to create a new development code category for extended stay units in certain zoning districts subject to a minimum one-week stay and complete kitchens being provided.


The TAB supports the staff recommendation to draft an ordinance and schedule public hearings to amend Title 30.  The amendment would add long/short term lodging use with conditions to Title 30.


The TAB opinion is the following zone districts are not appropriate for this new use.


·   R-5:  TAB agrees with the staff position and reasoning

·   M-D, M-1: 

o        These are industrial zone districts that should not have a residential use component. 

o        The possibility of residential use in these areas may discourage businesses locating there. 

o        The mixing of industrial and residential uses can create safety or environmental hazards. 

o        The current Title 30 does not mention residential in the description of these zone districts. 

o        Our code should be removing possible obstacles to new industrial uses in the valley.

·   U-V: 

o        This zone district is permitted by the MUD overlay. 

o        The MUD overlay in Enterprise is overlaid on Business Design and Research Park (BDRP) and industrial land uses. 

o        The reasoning for M-D and M-1 applies to the U-V zone district. 

o        In addition, in Enterprise the MUD is adjacent or abutting to low/medium density residential.  This use is not appropriate adjacent to low or medium density residential.


10.    ZC-0030-11 – FRIAS, PHYLLIS M., ET AL:

APPROVED: per Current Planning If approved conditions


ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 75.0 acres within Section 30 generally located between Pyle Avenue and Rush Avenue, and between Arville Street and Valley View Boulevard from R-A (Residential Agricultural) Zone and R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone to R-A (Residential Agricultural) (RNP-I) Zone and R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone to establish a Residential Neighborhood Preservation Overlay District within Enterprise (description of file).  SB/dg/ml


The land involved in this request is broken down as follows:

·   40% BLM land,

·   40% owned by the applicant or owners in favor of the change

·   20% of owners who have been contacted but not responded


There was no public opposition to this request.  The staff is opposed to this application because it changes the land use planning done during the major land use update in 2009.   Also, the expansion of the RNP-1 overlay would place higher density uses around the new RNP-1 overlay area.  The current buffer would become part of the new overlay.


The land owners stated their desire to have their land included in the RNP-1 overlay to help protect a rural life style.  If this application is approved, the owners will have to seek a land use plan amendment in the June – July 2011 time frame to match the overlay to fully protect their area. 


One TAB concern was the land owners’ desires who had not responded.  They have been notified by the County and the applicant has attempted to contact them.  They will have a chance to remove their property from the overlay at the BCC hearing on the overlay and another chance when the land use amendment goes forward in September 2011.
