1.      WS-0352-12 – GRIMM NORTON 1, LLC:

APPROVED per Staff conditions

ADD Current Planning condition:

·   Comply with the Southern Highlands Design Guidelines with respect to aesthetics and overall appearance from street frontage.



DESIGN REVIEW for a multiple family residential development on 20.0 acres (previously notified as 12.9 acres) in an R-3 (Multiple Family Residential) Zone.


WAIVER OF CONDITIONS of a design review (DR-0165-12) requiring development to be consistent with Southern Highlands Design Standards.  Generally located between Irvin Avenue and Conn Avenue (alignment) and between Dean Martin Drive and Polaris Avenue within Enterprise.  SB/rk/ml (For possible action)


The buildings facing Polaris Avenue and Irvin Avenue are generally set back 20 feet from property line. However, portions of the buildings encroach within the setback requirement of 20 feet.  The TAB did not consider this a significant change from the original plans.


The TAB added condition to ensure the street frontage aesthetics will maintain continuity with the Southern Highlands Design guidelines.


One item was clarified by the applicant.  The staff agenda sheet stated the following:  The plans show 2 building types within the development. The first type is a 3 story, 35 foot high,“mansion style” building. The second building type is 2 stories and 30.5 feet high traditional multiple family style building.”  The staff write up is the opposite of the actual plan.  The two story buildings around the perimeter are the “mansion style” and the three story interior buildings are more traditional apartment style as presented in previous plans.

2.      UC-0518-12 – AMAZING RAINBOW, LLC:

HELD until October 10, 2012 TAB meeting.   This application was held to obtain more information on the drainage and the fill required.

USE PERMIT for outside dining in conjunction with a proposed restaurant.


VARIANCE to reduce parking.


DESIGN REVIEW for a shopping center on 8.8 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone in the Pinnacle Peaks Concept Plan Area.  Generally located on the southeast corner of Rainbow Boulevard and Mardon Avenue within Enterprise.  SS/rk/ml  (For possible action)


3.      UC-0520-12 PJD&D HOLDINGS, LLC:

APPROVED per staff conditions

CHANGE Current Planning condition #1 to read:

·   Six months to complete with any extension of time to be a public hearing;

USE PERMIT for a car rental facility on 0.5 acres in a C-1 (Local Business) (AE-60) Zone.  Generally located on the east side of Gilespie Street, 350 feet south of George Crockett Road within Enterprise.  SS/mk/ml (For possible action)


The business has changed owners and the new owner required the use permit to have the Building Department approve his plans.  The applicant stated he could finish the required work in much less than a year.  The TAB felt a shorter time period is appropriate.


10/17/12 BCC


4.      VC-1282-04 (ET-0106-12) – ADAVEN MANAGEMENT, INC:

DENIED (3-1)

VARIANCES THIRD EXTENSION OF TIME to commence the following:


1) Reduced lot depth; and

2) Reduced lot size on 5.0 acres


in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) Zone in the Pinnacle Peaks Concept Plan Area.  Generally located on the north side of Shelbourne Avenue and the east side of Duneville Street (alignment) within Enterprise.  SB/rk/ml  (For possible action)


The staff recommended denial of this application.  Other than the zone change, there are no active permits or maps for this property.  The applicant’s representative stated that there is an intent to proceed with the property development in the near future.  Also, a TAB denial would be responsible for a $500 per house price increase, however no data were presented to back this statement up. 


Applications for the Use Permit and Tentative Map will need to be submitted and approved before this project can go forward.  TAB considers waivers without current plans to be a poor way to do business and a bad precedent. Also, the waiver is eight years old and may not be appropriate in todays’ market. 


5.      VS-0536-12 - TODARO, MARIA:   Companion item # 7

APPROVED per staff conditions

VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located between Eldorado Lane and Viceroy Bay Avenue, and between Torrey Pines Drive and Mystic Voyage Street in an R-1 (Single Family Residential) Zone within Enterprise (description on file).  ss/rk/ed  (For possible action)


6.      ZC-0526-12 – FAIRFIELD AVENUE, LLC:

Approved with the following:

CHANGE the Waiver of Development standard #1:

Up to 8 foot retaining wall may be used

ADD Public Works conditions

·   Waive off-sites for Neal, except for paving

·   Neal to be developed as non-urban road standards using Clark County standard drawing 209.1


ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 5.0 acres from RUD (Residential Urban Density) Zone to R-2 (Medium Density Residential) Zone for a single family residential subdivision.




1) Increase wall height; and

2) Increase the length of a cul-de-sac. 


Generally located on the east side of Placid Street and the north side of Neal Avenue within Enterprise (description on file).  ss/rk/ml  (For possible action)


The development will utilize the existing planned land use Residential Medium designation to reclassify the property from Residential Urban Village (RUD, up to 14 units/acre) to Medium Density Residential (R-2, up to 8 units/acre).


The primary concern was the retaining walls height and length required on this project.  The retaining walls are required because the sewer connection to be used is located on Placid and the land slopes away from Placid. 


No retaining wall is required on Neal.  On Fairfield, there will be 11 feet of retaining and screening wall that will decrease to 6 ft of screening wall.  The highest wall will be on the north property line, approximately 100 ft from Placid.  The walls on other properties in this area do not exceed 6 ft.


Neal is developed to non-urban road standards on the south side and the TAB recommends the north side be developed to the same standard.


The applicant stated they could use coach lighting on the cul-de-sac instead of street lights.  This would be appropriate for the area.


7.      ZC-0535-12 – TODARO, MARIA:   Companion item # 5

APPROVED per staff conditions

ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 5.0 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone to R-1 (Single Family Residential) Zone for a single family residential subdivision.




1) Reduce the off-set between street intersections; and

2) Increase the length of a cul-de-sac. 


Generally located on the south side of Eldorado Lane, 295 feet west of Torrey Pines Drive within Enterprise (description on file).  ss/rk/ml  (For possible action)


This an infill project.  There was neighborhood opposition to the density of this application.  Their request was to match the lot size adjacent to the applicant's property.  The adjacent property is zoned R-2 that was developed with  approximately 10,000 sq. ft lots.


The TAB considered the following:

·   The R-1 zone district requested is a lower zone district than the surrounding property

·   The project density is greater than the actual surrounding density.

·   The proposed density is slightly higher that the surrounding density.

·   The land use would allow R-2 zone district


The TAB requested the developer work with the current residents to procure permission to attach new block walls to the current boundary walls.  This would prevent building redundant walls within a residential area.
