NEXT MEETING DATE:  March 28, 2012





H-1   VS-1372-04 (WC-0123-11) – RHODES RANCH, GP:

APPROVED per staff conditions with the following:

MODIFY Public Works condition # 4 to read:

·   Alternate access right-of-way to be completed within 180 days of commencement of any construction of a dwelling unit on either parcel 176-17-301-002 or 176-17-301-003 or public lands located east of Seeliger Street, 2 years from the posting of the bond, whichever comes first;

ADD Public Works Condition:

·   Design Review as a public hearing for the alternate access roadway design


WAIVERS OF CONDITIONS of a vacation and abandonment requiring the following:


1) Applicant to grant and pave an alternate 60 foot wide public right-of-way from Fort Apache Road to Seeliger Street, dedicate right-of-way within 30 days; and

2) no building permits to be issued until the access road is complete


on approximately 52.9 acres in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) P-C (Planned Community Overlay) Zone in Rhodes Ranch Master Planned Community.  Generally located on the south side of Hidden Mountain Way and the east side of Fort Apache Road within Spring Valley and Enterprise.  SB/rk/xx  (For possible action)


There was considerable discussion to ensure the staff conditions and how they affect the area were thoroughly understood.  The following points were discussed and/or clarified:


·   The staff conditions create a definitive time to construct the alternate access road.

·   All the land east of Seeliger must be part of the road construction trigger

·   The Rhodes Ranch Major Project design isolated this area

·   The applicant is responsible to obtain BLM authorization for the alternate access road

·   All the land east of Seeliger would have to be purchased to avoid the isolation of land parcels.

·   The developer is responsible to construct the access road

·   The CCSD wants sidewalk and street lights along the access road.

·   The new alignment place the alternate access road alongside the Blue Diamond Wash


The TAB changed the Public Works condition #4 to add the Public Lands between Seeliger Street to the Blue Diamond Wash to the road construction trigger.  The County has planned this area for Residential Suburban land use.


Two factors resulted in the added condition for a Design Review as a public hearing.

·   The alternate access road is located adjacent to the Blue Diamond Wash

·   CCSD desires sidewalks and street lighting

         The compatibility of lighting and landscaping along the wash should be discussed pubilicly


One unrelated item discussed is CCSD desire for a foot bridge across the Blue Diamond Wash as an access route to the three planned schools south of the wash.  The east and west entrances to Rhodes Ranch student to travel along arterial road to reach the proposed schools.  A route across the wash would provide a safer and shorter route to school.

This was the second time the applicant was a no show without any contact or explanation.  A motion was made to deny the application due to lack of communication with the TAB and being a no show. 


This application has several factors that need to be considered prior approval.


·         The applicants property is significantly lower the residences to the south.

·         The southern boundary wall is a 6 ft. retaining wall and 6 ft. block wall

·         Fill will need to be removed to match properties on the east and west.

·         The drainage pattern on the property to the west is mid property on the east side.

·         Perpetual crosses access with property on the east and west for effective traffic flow

·         How the landscaping will be done on the south boundary

·         Lighting and signage are not part of the application

·         Will a redundant wall be required on the southern boundary


The following conditions needed to be discussed for addition to the application:


·         Design Review as a public hearing for lighting and signage.

·         Design Review for significant changes to plans

·         Drainage study and compliance


The motion was challenged:


·         The standard has been three no shows before the decision to hear the item is made.

·         The motion to deny was made without discussion of the application

·         The applicant’s PC hearing has not occurred (Mar 20, 2012)
