DESIGN REVIEW for a communication tower in conjunction with an existing shopping center on 3.3 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone and a C-2 (General Commercial) (AE-60) Zone in the MUD-3 and CMA Design Overlay Districts.  Generally located on the southeast corner of Rainbow Boulevard and Roy Horn Way within Enterprise.  ss/pb/ml  (For possible action)


2.      UC-0279-13 – DEAN, GLENN G.:

APPROVED per staff conditions and,

ADD Current Planning conditions:

·      Drive aisles to be  Clark County Department of Air Quality approved dust control materials;

·      Trees to be installed along Placid Street on 20 foot centers;

·      Design Review for additional improvements required as a Public Hearing.


TAB suggested the applicant use a coating that resembles stucco on the garage/carport.


USE PERMITS for the following:


1) Allow an accessory structure not architecturally compatible with the principal structure;

2) Allow an accessory structure to exceed one-half the footprint of the principal structure;

3) Allow the cumulative area of all accessory structures to exceed the footprint of the principal structure; and

4) Waive design standards for an accessory structure


In conjunction with an existing single family residence on 2.3 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone.  Generally located on the west side of Placid Street, 350 feet south of Mesa Verde Lane within Enterprise.  SS/gc/ml  (For possible action)


This is an older, run down RNP-1 property recently purchased by the applicant.  The proposed 3200 sq. ft. metal garage/carport is located in the rear yard, approximately 25 feet from the west property line and 146 feet from the south property line. The following concerns were expressed during the TAB hearing:


·   The size of the garage/carport

·   Architectural fit into the neighborhood.

·   Future property development

·   Dust control

·   Landscaping buffer

·   Possible use as storage for commercial vehicles and supplies.


The applicant intends to live on the property and improve it over several years.  A decorative block wall has been installed along Placid Street.  The garage/carport is the next step in upgrading the property.  The TAB conditions were added to address the TAB and neighbors’ concerns raised during the discussion. 


Dust is a current problem. The TAB recommendation is the drive isles be an approved dust control material. 


There is no visual breakup of the garage/carport from Placid Street.  The recommendation is trees planted along Placid Street will help buffer the garage/carport size from the street. 


As the property is developed, the condition for a Design Review will help ensure property is compatible with the surrounding neighborhood.


The TAB suggested the applicant use a faux stucco finish coating on the garage/carport to help it blend into the neighborhood.


The applicant denied the property would be used for commercial purposes.


3.      UC-0287-13 – TSLV, LLC:

APPROVE Use Permits 1, 2, & 3 including Game Works;

APPROVE Use Permits 4 and 5 pending resolution of deed restrictions on property.


USE PERMITS for the following: 


1) Recreational facility with dining and on-premise consumption of alcohol, restaurant, and retail sales;

2) Minor training facilities;

3) Major training facilities;

4) Schools; and

5) Colleges/universities


in conjunction with an existing shopping center on 92.8 acres in an H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) (AE-65 & AE-70) Zone.  Generally located on the southwest corner of Las Vegas Boulevard South and Sunset Road within Enterprise.  SS/al/ml  (For possible action)


The TAB considered all the use permits to be a good fit for Town Square.  The recommendation was divided into two parts due to CMA deed restrictions on the property.  The first three use permits are not deed restricted and can be implemented with application approval.


The last two use permits (schools, colleges/universities) are not allowed, at this time, because of CMA deed restrictions.  The two land uses are considered incompatible near the airport.  Incompatible means uses which potentially expose persons to elevated levels of aircraft generated noise or to areas identified as necessary to protect the safe passage of aircraft or which have been determined by the FAA, the Director of the Department of Aviation, and/or the Airport Height Hazard Board of Adjustment to be hazardous to or incompatible with air navigation.


The airport noise contour lines were evaluated and redrawn several years ago. The area they cover was significantly reduced.  Town Square is now divided between airport two noise areas.  The FAA guidelines would allow schools, colleges/university on part of Town Square.  This raises a legal question on how the deed restrictions should be applied in the less restrictived part of Town Square.  The last two uses cannot go forward until the legal questions are answered.

4.      WS-0273-13 – GRAFIADA, ENRIQUE & KAMI:

ADD Current Planning condition:

·      Design Review as a Public Hearing for the garage.


WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to reduce the front setback for an addition (attached garage) to an existing single family residence on 2.2 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone.  Generally located on the west side of Gilespie Street, 281 feet north of Pyle Avenue within Enterprise.  ss/pb/ml  (For possible action)


The design review condition was generated by a neighbor’s concern on how the garage would match the house.  The applicant has constructed an observation tower on the property which is objectionable to the neighborhood.
