14.    UC-0016-15 – NOUVEAU RESORTS CORPORATION, ET AL:

DENIED

 

USE PERMIT to allow deviations as shown per plans on file.

 DEVIATIONS for the following: 

 

1) Allow roof signs; and

2) All other deviations as depicted per plans on file.

 

DESIGN REVIEWS for the following: 

 

1) Roof signs; and

2) Animated wall signs

 

in conjunction with an approved timeshare hotel tower within an existing resort hotel complex (Silverton) on 74.8 acres in an H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) Zone and an H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) (AE-60 & AE-65) Zone in the MUD-2 Overlay District.  Generally located on the southeast corner of Blue Diamond Road and Dean Martin Drive within Enterprise.  SB/gc/ml  (For possible action) 03/04/15 BCC

 

This item had 14 residents in opposition.

 

The three primary arguments were:

·      The signs pose a potential safety hazard to aircraft arriving or departing McCarran.

·      Any potential interference with McCarran operations should be prohibited.

·      The signs are not consistent with the adjacent residential neighborhood.

 

The signs are directly below the 01R final approach for McCarran.  The building is located approximately 10 seconds away from a point where the pilot must make the decision to land or go around.  At night or in bad weather, the illumination from the signs will reduce the pilot’s ability to see the runway.

 

Once the building is finished, the FAA will determine what height the building (obstruction height) is and adjust McCarran approaches and departures as necessary.  These adjustments may increase the airline’s operational cost.  The changes factor into the airline decisions on where to deploy their aircraft. 

 

The current FAA recommended height is 175 ft.  The highest point on the building is currently 181 ft.

 

The TAB has consistently supported no commercial signs facing residential areas.  The signs, due to their height and size, will be visible from several residential neighborhoods.  The Silverton currently has significant signage along I-15.

 

15.    VS-0031-15 - LEWIS INVESTMENT CO NV, LLC, ET AL:

 

VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located between Grand Canyon Drive and Eula Street (alignment), and between Serene Avenue (alignment) and Blue Diamond Road and portions of rights-of-way being Jensen Street located between Serene Avenue (alignment) and Oleta Avenue (alignment), and Serene Avenue located between Jensen Street (alignment) and Conquistador Street (alignment) within Enterprise (description on file).  SB/dg/ml  (For possible action) 03/04/15 BCC

 

16.    WS-1002-14 – U.S.A.:

APPROVED Waiver of Development Standards

DENY Design Review

 

WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS for full off-site improvements (partial paving, curb, gutter, sidewalk, and streetlights) along Cimarron Road.

 

DESIGN REVIEW for a single family residential development on 10.0 acres in an R-E (Rural Estates Residential) (RNP-I) Zone.  Generally located on the east side of Cimarron Road and the north side of Camero Avenue within Enterprise.  SB/dg/ml  (For possible action) 03/04/15 BCC

 

This item has 20 residents in opposition. 

 

There were several reasons why the TAB opposed the Design Review.

·   The gross lot sizes are 20,000 sq. ft. or greater.

·   Some net usable lot sizes were 25% smaller; all lots have significant difference between gross and net usable lot sizes.

·   The two cul-de-sac design significantly reduces net lot sizes.

·   A different plot layout could produce greater useable area for the new residents.

·   The plot plan does not face homes onto local roads in accordance with Title 30

·   The area is isolated from the rest of the RNP.

·   The amount of fill is excessive.

·   Other developers have been able to develop grading plans to avoid excessive fill.

·   The established residents along Valdez Street will be looking at a 10 ft wall or greater.

·   Based upon wash flooding problems to the west of this project, the expected flow is suspect.

·   The applicant did not answer the question about redundant wall and wall height for the adjacent home to the north.

 

The TAB opinion is this project would be a determent to RNP preservation effort. This project is the continuation of a trend to build groups of homes that are isolated from the rest of the RNP with significantly smaller usable lot sizes.  It appears these HOAs have regulations that prevent some the allowed RNP uses (large animals).  This will eventually result in the RNP disappearance.

 

The TAB has consistently recommended rural road standards for all roads within the RNP-1 areas.

 

17.    WS-0022-15 – CONCORDE INVESTMENT GROUP, LLC:

APPROVED per staff conditions and,

ADD Current Planning conditions:

·         Screening wall to be a noise attenuation wall;

·         Add fully shielded safety lighting below the top of the wall;

 

WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to reduce the height/setback ratio requirement adjacent to a single family residential development.

 

DESIGN REVIEWS for the following:

 

1) A proposed retail building; and

2) Lighting for a proposed retail building

 

within an existing shopping center on 0.4 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone.  Generally located on the west side of Jones Boulevard, 490 feet south of Warm Springs Road within Enterprise.  SS/jt/ml  (For possible action) 03/04/15 BCC

 

If the Waiver of Development Standards is not granted, this small lot becomes unusable for anything other than a parking area. 

 

The building is planned with no exits on the south side.  This area has a 10 ft. landscape buffer established 10 years ago.  The current landscaping should not be removed to meet the county definition for an intense landscape buffer. 

The screen wall for the delivery area should be built to the noise attenuation wall standards to further reduce delivery noise for the adjacent neighbors.

 

18.    ZC-0028-15 – USA:

HELD to February 25 TAB meeting per agreement with the applicant.

 

ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 12.5 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone to R-2 (Medium Density Residential) Zone.

This project is located in western Enterprise approaching The Red Rock Design Overlay District. The restriction on the lighting will help provide a transition the Red Rock Design Overlay. This will be the first project in the area south of Blue Diamond Rd. which provides an opportunity to reduce light pollution.   The TAB has consistently recommended fully shielded pole-mounted lighting for residential streets.  This shielding should be included on lights for public streets.
