NV Energy Issues Consumer Alert to Customers


NV Energy has learned that persons wearing stolen NV Energy uniforms are knocking on doors in the Las Vegas area in an attempt to gain access to home in order to commit robbery.


NV Energy employees will never enter a residence unless an appointment has been previously scheduled. A technician may a. knock on the door to alert customers of their presence in making repairs or installing equipment, but do not need to enter the home.


NV Energy requires field employees and contractors to wear identification badges at all times, which include photo and employee number. Anyone claiming to be an NV Energy employee or contractor will be happy to present that badge and employee number when contacting customers in the field.


If an attempt to enter a home occurs, customers are advised not to open the door and to request to see an NV Energy badge. To verify an employee call NV Energy Corporate Security at 402-5007.  NV Energy is working closely with law enforcement personnel on this issue.

03/05/13 PC


1.      UC-0011-13 – EMERY FAMILY LIVING TRUST 1980:

         APPROVED (3-2) per staff conditions

         ADD condition

·   Requires Fire Department approval for location on the property


USE PERMIT for a food cart (shaved ice) not located within an enclosed building.


DESIGN REVIEW for a food cart (shaved ice) in conjunction with an existing convenience store and gasoline station on 1.6 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone.  Generally located on the northeast corner of Cactus Avenue and Decatur Boulevard within Enterprise.  SB/gc/ml  (For possible action)


The TAB and PC had previously denied an application UC-0096-12 for a shaved ice stand on this property.  The staff recommended UC-0096-12 be denied, while they recommended this application be approved.  The different staff recommendations are based upon the following:


UC-0096-12 was an application for a building (a shed structure) and UC-0011-13 is for a food cart.  These are different situations based on the "structures"... a cart on a trailer can be easily be move from the property, where the 2012 application was for a more permanent structure (wooden shed).


The TAB was split on this application.  The majority position wanted the cart moved to next to the no parking area west of the proposed location.  This would provide access to cart from the nearest parking through a no parking area.  The applicant has successfully operated a cart in Henderson and adapted their operation to keep patrons away from passing vehicles. The one year review period will provide a means to determine if the location works.


The minority opinion is the location poses hazards to pedestrian including children.  Some patrons would have to cross the drive isle to reach the cart.  . Most of the available parking requires crossing a drive isle to reach the cart. The traffic flow does not allow sufficient room around the kiosk to safely accommodate the expected number of patrons. The fuel tank service openings are next the proposed cart location.  Does the cart location allow sufficient room for fuel truck to maneuver without posing a hazard to pedestrians? The other, question raised does the cart imped Fire Department access? 


The condition to require Fire Department approval for the cart location was added to the TAB recommendation.  The Fire Department approval should be required for any cart located in a drive isle.


2.      WS-0031-13 – JONES, CAROLE ANNE:

APPROVED per staff “If approved” conditions and,

         CHANGE Current Planning bullet #1 to read:

·         2 years to complete with any extension of time to be a public hearing.




1) Reduced setbacks; and

2) Reduced separation


for an existing accessory structure in conjunction with an existing single family residence on 0.7 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone.  Generally located on the west side of Schuster Street, 135 feet south of Mardon Avenue within Enterprise.  ss/pb/ml  (For possible action)


The CC Pro complaint was filed by a neighbor, who has filed a number of complaints over the last several years.  The neighbor to the west approves of the shed.  The applicant is employed in the construction industry.  With the slowdown in construction the rehab progress on their house is slow due to a lack of funds.  The shed in question is used to store their household goods.


The pictures presented by the applicant reveals minimal shed viability from the surround area. 


The staff suggested the shed be moved. This would be difficult to do.  There are two septic fields on the property which occupy the available open space.


The TAB extended the complete time due to the slow progress on the rehab project.  The applicant will need to obtain all the required building permits for the shed.

3.      UC-0018-13 – RES-NV PRESIDIO, LLC, ET AL:

APPROVED per staff conditions

ADD Current Planning conditions:

·   Pedestrian gate to provide access to commercial area west of the property

·   Comply with Southern Highlands architectural design standards

·   Design Review as a public hearing for significant changes to plans


USE PERMIT to revise a previously approved and partially constructed planned unit development to include detached single family lots.


WAIVERS OF CONDITIONS of a zone change (ZC-0016-05) requiring the following:


1) Compliance with site plan dated March 17, 2005; and

2) Driveway lengths to be 8 feet.


DESIGN REVIEW for a planned unit development on 10.0 acres in an R-3 (Multiple Family Residential) Zone.  Generally located on the south side of Starr Avenue, 450 feet east of Valley View Boulevard within Enterprise.  SB/dg/ml  (For possible action)


4.      VS-0028-13 – RES-NV PRESIDIO, LLC, ET AL:

         APPROVED per staff conditions


VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located between Starr Avenue and Cupecoy Point Avenue (alignment), and between Procyon Street and Valley View Boulevard in an R-3 (Multiple Family Residential) Zone within Enterprise (description on file).  SB/dg/ed  (For possible action)


This property has change ownership.  The current owner has determined that a condo project is not possible in today’s market.  The redesign has changed the project to a 96 compact lot development. All the streets are now 37 ft. The parking number provided by the staff does not include the on street parking or the addition parking stalls added by the developer.


The TAB does not like the short driveways and is normally not in favor.  Original project was approved with eight foot driveways this application continues with that approval.  The waiver is required because the standard that determines driveway length has changed.  The distance between the garage door and the back of curb has not changed with the new plans.


This property is not part of the Southern Highlands Master Plan.  The TAB added the condition to comply with the Southern Highland architectural guidelines.  This will maintain the design continuity with the surrounding neighborhoods.


There is a commercial area to the west of this project.  The TAB recommendation is a pedestrian gate be established to provide access to the commercial area.


The final developer has not been established.  The TAB determined a Design Review as a public hearing is appropriate for changes to plans.




1. The Board to discuss and finalize Enterprise TAB bylaws. APPROVED with corrections to dates.


2. The Board to discuss TAB conditions to applications including content and clarity. (For possible action)
