We will be conducting a neighborhood meeting to present information regarding a proposed redesign of a previously approved Resort Condominium project to be located on approximately 6 acres generally located south of Levi Avenue and adjacent to Las Vegas Boulevard

The TAB was briefed on The Clark County Water Quality Program by Kate Hoffman.  Indoor waste water flows into the sewer system and eventually to a treatment plant.  In the Las Vegas Valley, water that falls onto streets, driveways, lawns, and other solid surfaces is channeled into the storm drain and flows untreated to Lake Mead. As the water flows across the valley, it picks up litter and pollutants from cars, lawn fertilizers, pet waste, and many other activities.


Educate yourself, your family, and your community!  Protect the quality of Lake Mead, the Valley's main source of drinking water, with these simple fixes:


·   Use pesticides and fertilizers sparingly.

·   Sweep up yard debris rather than hosing down areas.

·   Repair auto leaks.

·   Dispose of household hazardous waste, used auto fluids, and batteries at designated collection or recycling locations.

·   Compost or recycle yard waste when possible.

·   Clean paint brushes in a sink, not outdoors.

·   Clean up after your pet.

·   Properly dispose of excess paints through a household hazardous waste collection program.

·   Use a commercial car wash or wash your car on a lawn or unpaved surface.

The staff agenda sheets for this meeting did not include Public Works analysis or conditions.  The lack of Public Works analysis and comments has increased over the last eighteen months.  The TAB is the first public hearing on an application.  All of the staff analysis and conditions should be available.  Otherwise, the public discussion and TAB recommendations are hampered by the lack of Public Works input.  If the Staff agenda sheet is not complete, the application should not be heard by any County board.  The incomplete staff agenda sheet is an indication of a problem in the application process.  This needs to be fixed.  The public and the TABs are being denied the staff analysis and conditions needed for a thorough review of each application.


NEXT MEETING DATE:  August 10, 2011





08/16/11 PC


1.      DR-0303-11 – HKM NEVADA PROPERTIES:

         APPROVED per staff conditions, no Public Works analysis or conditions


DESIGN REVIEW to modify a previously approved parking lot in conjunction with an approved drive-thru restaurant on 9.2 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone.  Generally located on the north side of St. Rose Parkway and the west side of Bermuda Road within Enterprise.  SS/co/ml  (For possible action)




2.      NZC-0311-11 - TOWN & COUNTRY BANK, ET AL:

         APPROVED per staff conditions, no Public Works analysis or conditions

CHANGE Current Planning condition # 3 to read:

The perimeter wall to be decorative per Title 30

ADD Current Planning Condition:

The perimeter wall along Blue Diamond to 8 ft. high


ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 10.0 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone, C-2 (General Commercial) Zone, and H-2 (General Highway Frontage) Zone to R-2 (Medium Density Residential) Zone in the MUD-3 Overlay District.




1) Reduced street intersection off-set; and

2) Modified street improvements in accordance with Clark County’s Uniform Standard Drawings.


DESIGN REVIEW for a single family residential development.  Generally located on the west side of Quarterhorse Lane, 200 feet north of Blue Diamond Road within Enterprise (description on file).  SB/dg/xx  (For possible action)


This is a non-conforming zone change which converts commercial land into residential.  The staff analysis found the residential development is more compatible and consistent with the planned and existing land uses in the area.  The TAB agreed with this assessment.


The northwest corner is a wash.  There is a concern that any portion of the wash not required as a flood channel be developed into usable open space.  The 61 home HOA most likely will not have the resources to develop this oven space if not done by the developer.  Current Planning has included a condition to cover this item.


The perimeter wall has two concerns:

·   The neighbors to the north request a decorative wall facing them.

·   The wall on the south property line should be 8 ft.


The TAB changed the Current Planning condition to require a decorative wall for all perimeter walls. The concern with the southern perimeter wall is unknown future development along Blue Diamond Road.  The higher wall will help provide increased security and provide some sound attenuation.  The TAB added the condition for an eight foot wall along the southern boundary.


3.      VS-0310-11 - TOWN & COUNTRY BANK, ET AL:

HELD by the applicant for an indefinite period.


VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located between Blue Diamond Road and Mackanos Avenue (alignment), and between Quarterhorse Lane and Fort Apache Road in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone, a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone, and an H-2 (General Highway Frontage) Zone in the MUD-3 Overlay District within Enterprise (description on file).  SB/dg/xx  (For possible action)


08/17/11 BCC


4.      DR-0312-11 – COUNTY OF CLARK (AVIATION):

APPROVED per staff conditions, no Public Works analysis or conditions

ADD Public works condition:

For any future development will require full off-site


DESIGN REVIEW for a parking lot.


WAIVER OF CONDITIONS of a zone change (ZC-1279-04) requiring full off-site improvements on a portion of 20.0 acres in an M-D (Designed Manufacturing) Zone in the CMA Design Overlay District.  Generally located on the northwest corner of Badura Avenue and Lindell Road within Enterprise.  MBS/co/xx  (For possible action)


The installation of full off sites is not appropriate at this time due to the limited scope of this project.  However, the request waiver should not remove the requirement for full off sites for additional development.  The TAB added a Public Works condition to maintain the requirement for full off sites with future development.


5.      WS-0292-11 – VALDEZ FAMILY TRUST:

         HELD to August 10 TAB meeting due to lack of Public Works analysis and conditions.


WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to appeal an administrative denial of an extension of time application for an off-site permit in conjunction with a 2 lot parcel map on 1.1 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone.  Generally located on the northeast corner of Pioneer Way and Torino Avenue within Enterprise.  SS/co/xx  (For possible action)


6.      ZC-0296-11 – LPP MORTGAGE, LTD:

         APPROVED per staff conditions, no Public Works analysis or conditions

ADD Public Works conditions:

·      Drainage study required;

·      Traffic study required;

·      Full off-sites required;

·      Right of way dedication for Dean Martin, Polaris, Irvin;

·      Gates must meet Clark County standards.


ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 20.0 acres from RUD (Residential Urban Density) Zone to R-3 (Multiple Family Residential) Zone.


DESIGN REVIEW for a multiple family residential development.  Generally located between Irvin Avenue and Conn Avenue (alignment) and between Dean Martin Drive and Polaris Avenue within Enterprise (description on file).  SB/dg/xx  (For possible action)


This is an excellent project.  The project has greater compatibility with the surrounding neighborhood than previous applications.  The applicant has met with the neighbors and incorporated many of the comments and concerns.


The project includes the use of mansion homes.  This is the first time I have seen this of type multi-family housing used in a project. Mansion homes combine several residences within one large structure. The difference between a mansion home and the standard apartment is the mansion home looks like a single large residence.  This is a type of construction favored by Current Planning as an alternative to the standard apartment construction.


One question not covered by the TAB is the trash collection area designed to accommodate recycling if recycling becomes mandatory.


The TAB added the Public Works conditions that were not included in the staff agenda sheets.
