County Commissioners (Commission) in an advisory capacity with the decision-making process in supplying public services to the unincorporated areas of Clark County. There are five (5) TABs that are elected (starting in 2016) and eight (8) that are appointed by the Commission. There are also six (6) CACs that are appointed by the Commission.

Each TAB or CAC consists of area residents and serve as formal direct channels to the County Commission allowing for greater input into the future of their towns. These members serve without compensation for two-year terms and have the responsibility of assisting the Commission, in an advisory capacity, in the governance of the unincorporated town by acting as a conduit between the residents and the Commission.

 

TABs and CACs hold regular, public meetings throughout the year. At these meetings, members of the TABs and CACs are informed of matters pertaining to their respective town or area, provide input regarding various matters, forward the concerns or problems of residents to the Commission, assist in long-term planning, and disseminate information of interest to the residents of the town or area. All meetings are subject to the Nevada Open Meeting Law (NRS Chapter 241).

VII.      Planning & Zoning

 

1.        UC-0459-15 (AR-0124-16)WJC, LLC:

Motion to:

Approved Use Permit

Approved Design Review

CHANGE Current Planning Bullet # 1 to read:

Until September 1, 2022 to review as a public hearing.          

Motion PASSED

 

USE PERMIT FIRST APPLICATION FOR REVIEW of a food cart (shaved ice trailer) not located within an enclosed building.

 

DESIGN REVIEW for a food cart (shaved ice trailer) in conjunction with an existing convenience store and gasoline station on 1.8 acres in a C-1 (Local Business) Zone. Generally located on the northwest corner of Rainbow Boulevard and Windmill Lane within Enterprise. SS/co/raj (For possible action) PC 10/18/16

 

The shaved ice use has operated at this location for several years without any problems.  The owner has been required to have an annual review since 2013.  This review cost the owner $400 per year.  Because this is a temporary business the review process cannot be eliminated.

The TAB recommends a much longer review period for this use.  The shaved ice cart has not interfered with the other businesses on the property.  The review application is very costly for a small business and should be stretched out.

 

2.               DR-0628-16 AZFD FAIRFIELD, LLC:         

APPROVED per staff conditions

 

DESIGN REVIEW for an addition to a private school on 4.4 acres in an R-3 (Multiple Family Residential) P-C (Planned Community Overlay District) Zone in the Southern Highlands Master Planned Community.

DESIGN REVIEW for a proposed mini-warehouse and RV storage facility on 4.7 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) P-C (Planned Community Overlay District) Zone in Southern Highlands Master Planned Community. Generally located on the west side of Interstate 15 and the south side of Robert Trent Jones Lane (alignment) within Enterprise. SB/co/raj  (For possible action)     PC 10/18/16

 

4.               NZC-0637-16 HARRISON KEMP & JONES 401 PLAN, ET AL:

Motion to:

APPROVED Zone Change reduced to C-1;

APPROVED Design Review;

Per staff if approved conditions.

Motion PASSED.

 

ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 9.7 acres from R-E (Rural Estates Residential) Zone and C-1 (Local Business) Zone to C-2 (General Commercial) Zone for a proposed shopping center, veterinarian office and mini-warehouse facility.

 

DESIGN REVIEW for a shopping center, veterinarian office and mini-warehouse facility. Generally located on the north side of Cactus Avenue and the east side of Valley View Boulevard within Enterprise (description on file). SB/al/ml (For possible action) PC 10/18/16

 

The TAB agrees with the staff analysis and recommendations for this application.  This property and adjacent properties should be developed as a Commercial Neighborhood with a C-1 zone district.

 

The applicant’s position:

C-2 zone district will provide needed commercial services and amenities to Southern Highlands.

The area is rapidly developing and in need of more services

Site has access to two arterial roads.

Possible tenants have expressed interest in C-2 uses not available in C-1 zone district.

The opening of the Cactus interchange, since the major land use update, is a significant change to the area.

Traffic in the area is increasing.

Other parcels in the area, designated for General Commercial development, are not available.

 

TAB considerations:

The area under consideration has been designated as Neighborhood Commercial through two Enterprise Major Land Use Updates.

The opening of the Cactus Ave. interchange was anticipated by the TAB in the 2014 Major Land Use Update.

20 additional General Commercial acres were added along Cactus Ave.

Between the Cactus interchange and Decatur Blvd., on the north side of Cactus Ave, there is approximately 45 acres designated for General Commercial.

Approximately 32 acres are not developed at this time.

This does not include the 20-acre Smith’s shopping center developed by Southern Highlands.

C-2 zone district is too intense for the area that will develop primarily as residential uses surrounding the Commercial Neighborhood.

50 foot buildings and 24-hour uses, and automotive repair uses are not appropriate in this location.

The property is divided by Rush Ave., creating two separate projects.

The TAB has previously rejected the idea that the C-2 acreage requirement can be met where the project is divided by a right-of-way.

The new Urban Land Use Policy #8 discourages non-conforming zone changes.  Also requires the non-conforming to buffer the adjacent uses.

2 of the 4 Compelling Justifications were not met.

The non-conforming zone change is opposed by area residents and property owners.

All the proposed uses can be accomplished in a C-1 conforming zone district.

The C-2 request appears to be speculative in nature.

 

The TAB opinion is the project design and proposed uses are appropriate for the area and should be approved with a zoning reduction to C-1.  The non-conforming zone change is not appropriate in this location and should be denied.

 

5.      VS-0622-16RYAN, MARK:

VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located between Warbonnet Way and Miller Lane and between Torino Avenue and Ford Avenue within Enterprise (description on file). SB/jvm/ml (For possible action) PC 10/18/16

7.                 DR-0635-16 RAINSPRINGS, LLC:          

APPROVED per staff conditions

 

DESIGN REVIEW for a proposed comprehensive sign plan for an approved retail center on a portion of 1.4 acres in a C-2 (General Commercial) Zone within the CMA Design and MUD-3 Overlay Districts. Generally located on the east side of Rainbow Boulevard and the south side of Capovilla Avenue within Enterprise.

SS/lm/mcb  (For possible action                                                                                 BCC 10/19/16

 

8.                DR-0636-16 ECW INVESTMENTS, LLC:            

DENIED

 

DESIGN REVIEW for a drive-thru in conjunction with an existing restaurant (Tropical Smoothie Café) on a portion of 1.2 acres within a 71.0-acre shopping center in an H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) (AE-60) Zone within the MUD-1 Overlay District. Generally located on the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard South and approximately 750 feet north of Robindale Road within Enterprise. SS/lm/ml (For possible action) BCC 10/19/16

 

The applicant’s position:

The addition of a drive-thru-window will increase their business.

The reduction of parking will be compensated by shifting some of their customers to the drive-thru-window.

The shopping center exceeds Title 30 parking standards.

The County staff required a longer stacking lane.

The loss of parking will not affect adjacent businesses.

Increased business would add 5 additional employees.

There is sufficient distance between their drive-thru entrance and Raising Cane’s drive-thru entrance.

The goggle satellite image shows the eastern parking places not in use.

 

TAB considerations:

The pad sites on the western edge of the shopping center are seriously under parked.

There are 4 other business on this pad, who require customer and staff parking.

Several TAB members have had difficulties finding open parking spaces adjacent to the applicant’s pad location.

The lack of parking spaces to accommodate other business patrons and staff is detrimental to their operation.

The original design with narrow drive aisles makes transit and parking difficult.

Minimally sized parking spaces for larger vehicles.

Stacking lane may make deliveries to the other businesses rear entrances difficult.

Drive-thru lane on the north side will further restrict a narrow drive aisle.

County overhead photo show 14 of 23 parking slots on the building east side are occupied.

 

The TAB opinion is the drive up window was not originally planned for this pad and cannot be accommodated given the original site design and the current business on this pad.  The stacking lane would remove too many parking places in an area that is seriously under parked. The application should be denied.

 

9.                    VS-0632-16 - PRECEDENT PROPERTIES, LLC, ET AL:             Per staff conditions

Motion to:

APPROVE Vacate and Abandon;

CHANGE Public Works – Development Review Bullet # 2 to read:

·        Right-of-way dedication to include 30 feet for Welpman Way, 30 feet for· Ensworth Street or 30 feet for Parvin Street, and associated spandrel;

Per staff conditions:

Motion PASSED.

 

VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located between Parvin Street and Interstate 15, and between Welpman Way and Rettig Avenue and a portion of right-of-way being Parvin Street located between Welpman Way and Rettig Avenue within Enterprise (description on file). SS/dg/ml (For possible action) BCC 10/19/16

 

The applicant’s original plan requested the Parvin St. right-of-way and the Ensworth alignment to be vacated.  The Building/Fire Prevention department agreed with the Parvin St. vacation but required Ensworth St. for their circulation pattern.

 

The applicant developed a second plan to satisfy the Building/Fire Prevention condition.  The TAB recommended approval of the new plan.

The TAB recommended the Public Works – Development Review be changed to remove Parvin St. from dedication discussion or recommendation.

One question that could not be taken up or resolved by the TAB was the status of Ensworth St. along the eastern edge of the Clark County School District facility.  Apparently, Ensworth St. was not dedicated or improved when the Clark County School District facility was built.

ZONE CHANGE to reclassify 5.0 acres from H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) Zone to C-2 (General Commercial) Zone.

 

USE PERMIT for an off-highway vehicle, recreational vehicle, and boat storage facility.

 

DESIGN REVIEWS for the following:

 

1) a proposed mini-warehouse facility;

2) a proposed recreational vehicle and boat storage facility; and

3) a project of regional significance (adjacent to the City of Henderson)

 

in the MUD- 1 Overlay District. Generally located on the north side of Welpman Way and the west side of Parvin Street within Enterprise (description on file).  SS/dg/ml (For possible action)   BCC 10/19/16

 

This project is appropriate for the area.  The zone change will allow RV storage and the design will enhance the area.  This is a well-planned project.

 

The applicant’s original plan requested the Parvin street right-of-way and the Ensworth alignment to be vacated.  The Building/Fire Prevention department agreed with the Parvin St. vacation but required Ensworth St. for their circulation pattern.

 

The applicant developed a second plan to satisfy the Building/Fire Prevention condition and presented that plan to the TAB.  The TAB recommends approval of the second plan dated September 27, 2016.

 

The TAB requested two additional conditions be added.  First, a Design Review for lighting and signage that was not included in this application.  The site will be visible from I-15 as tourists enter the valley from the south.  Second, a Design Review for significant changes to plans.  Again, the site will be visible from I-15 as tourists enter the valley from the south.

 

One question that could not be taken up or resolved by the TAB was the status of Ensworth St. along the eastern edge of the Clark County School District facility.  Apparently, Ensworth St. was not dedicated or improved when the Clark County School District facility was built

 

General Business

 

1. Discuss and review a proposed Enterprise Land Use Vision Statement for possible inclusion in the Enterprise Land Use Annual Update. No Vision Statement currently exists for Enterprise.  (For possible action)

 

Proposed Enterprise Vision Statement

 

Enterprise is a mix of rural/suburban/urban areas offering diverse neighborhoods, lifestyles, small-to-large businesses, gaming, manufacturing, ethnicities, and recreational uses associated with a vibrant growing township. Housing options range from rural to high density.  Compatible employment zones will be encouraged with a special focus on logistics, light manufacturing and high technology.  Areas designated for such job creation should be protected from encroachment by uses which might limit their development.

 

The Advanced Planning staff made several suggestions to improve the Enterprise Vision statement.  The TAB decided to work with the Advance Planning staff to develop the vision statement and bring it back to the TAB at the second October TAB meeting.

 

2.                         Review 2015/2016 budget requests and take public input regarding suggestions for next funding budget requests. (For possible action)

 

No new items submitted by the public.  Reviewed the previous year’s items and discussed some reword of those items.  The final hearing on the budget items will be the TAB meeting on October 26, 2016.
