ANALYSIS
The site is 3.88 acre site at the northwest corner of Sahara Avenue and Cimarron Road and is
utilized by an existing 13,702 square-foot Church/House of Worship constructed in 1997. Also, a
18,100 square-foot Commercial Recreation/Amusement (Indoor) [Gym] has been approved for
development on the vacant northwestern portion of the site through Site Development Plan
Review (SDR-61799). All existing and proposed structures on the site meet the Title 19
requirements for the C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district.
Access to the site is provided from three driveways off of Cimarron Road and one driveway off
of Sahara Avenue. As the site is partially developed some grading and drainage has already taken
place and will not be an issue. Site circulation is logical throughout the site and will be
unaffected by mapping.
The submitted north/south and east/west cross section depicts maximum natural grade less than
2% across this site. Per Title 19.08.070 a development with natural slope less than 2% is
allowed a maximum 4-foot retaining wall. Technically there are no perimeter retaining walls,
however a 4-foot high retaining wall is shown approximately 6 feet off the northern property line
and a 10-foot high retaining wall is shown 6 feet off of the western property line. The proposed
perimeter retaining wall will meet all Title 19.08 requirements for perimeter retaining walls.
Parking and access is intended to be allowed across the site. A condition of approval will require
the final map to state that common perpetual access and parking will be granted across the entire
proposed commercial subdivision.

FINDINGS (TMP-62745)
All Title 19 and NRS 278 zoning and technical requirements regarding tentative maps are
satisfied. Therefore, staff recommends approval of the subject tentative map.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is proposing a six-lot, single-family residential subdivision located on the
southwest corner of Torrey Pines Drive and Bullring Lane. The General Plan Land Use
Designation is DR (Desert Rural Density Residential) with an R-E (Residence Estates) zoning
district. All proposed lots meet the minimum design standards for the R-E (Residence Estates)
zoning district and are similar to the adjacent residential developments. Public Works approves
of the non-complete street design standards as a result of existing development patterns in the
area. Staff recommends approval of the project, with conditions. If denied, the parcels would
remain undivided.

ANALYSIS
The subject site is a 3.96-acre undeveloped lot located at the southwest corner of Bullring Lane
and Torrey Pines Drive. The General Plan Land Use Designation is DR (Desert Rural Density
Residential) with an R-E (Residence Estates) zoning district. All six proposed lots meet the
minimum design standards for the R-E (Residence Estates) zoning district and match the
adjacent residential developments. The project is located within the 330-foot buffer area for the
Rural Preservation Overlay District. However, this project does not impact the Overlay area, as
no zoning application is being requested.
The applicant is currently requesting a Tentative Map for a six-lot single-family subdivision that
would utilize the existing rights-of-way. The allowed density for the site is up to 2.49 units per
acre or eight units; however, this proposal is under the maximum allowed at six units. As
proposed, the subject site would have a density of 1.5 dwelling units per acre.
Four of the proposed lots will have frontage along Bullring Lane and two lots will front onto
Torrey Pines Drive. As an 80-foot wide Secondary Collector, Torrey Pines Drive is to be
constructed to Complete Streets Standards. These standards include provisions for a three-foot
amenity zone and a five-foot wide sidewalk within the right-of-way. However, the Public Works
Department has approved a deviation from these standards to allow only a five-foot wide
sidewalk at the back of curb and then a 2.5-foot wide amenity area. Likewise the Complete
Street Standards along Bullring Lane, a 60-foot wide Minor Collector, requires a five-foot

YK

TMP-62763 [PRJ-62711]

amenity area and then a five-foot wide sidewalk. The Public Works Department has also
approved a deviation along this right-of-way to only require a five-foot wide sidewalk at the
back of curb, with no landscape amenity area except along lot five, where six feet is to be
provided.
The lot sizes of the proposed development range from 23,955 square feet up to 31,828 square
feet. No proposed model homes for the development were offered by the applicant. A detailed
review of the floor plans will occur during the plan check and permitting process to assure all
setback and code requirements of the R-E (Residence Estates) are being provided and met.
Public Works Department staff notes that north/south and east/west cross sections are shown
with this Tentative Map submittal, but no stationing or elevations are shown. However, the
submitted north/south and east/west cross sections appear to depict maximum natural grades less
than 2% across this site. Per the Tables in Subdivision Code 19.06.050 a development with
natural slopes less than 2% are allowed maximum four-foot retaining walls. There is one
retaining wall shown on the western border at a maximum of two feet in height.
Two common lots have been created and will be maintained by the Home Owners Association.
The first one will be a landscaped common lot along the north side of Lot Five. The second one
is for a ten-foot wide public drainage easement along the south perimeter. This will have a
wrought iron gate between Lots Four and Six. From the Torrey Pines Drive right-of-way,
looking west, the drainage easement will visually appear as if it is part of the front and side yards
of Lot Six. This will minimize any public safety issues regarding the easement area.

FINDINGS (TMP-62763)
The proposed Tentative Map conforms to Nevada Revised Statues. However, the project
requires a Deviation from Title 19 Development Standards for Complete Streets. Public Works
is in favor of the Deviation as a result of the existing conditions in the area. Staff supports the
Deviation and the Tentative Map request and recommends approval, subject to conditions.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
This is a request for a Special Use Permit for a proposed Bailbond Service use within a 1,163
square-foot suite. The subject site is located within the C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district
in an existing building located at 1819 East Charleston Boulevard, Suite #102. The use is located
on a 100-foot wide right-of-way and is within one mile of the downtown courthouse facilities.
The use is appropriate for the area and can be conducted in a manner that is compatible with the
surrounding land uses; therefore, staff recommends approval of this request. If denied, the
Bailbond Service use would not be permitted to operate at this location.

ISSUES

A Bailbond Service use is permitted in the C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district
with the approval of a Special Use Permit.
The Bailbond Service use appears to be operating without a license.
A complaint was forwarded to Code Enforcement regarding non-permitted signage in the

*The site is parking impaired as detailed in Title 19.18.030 (D). The existing site contains 11 parking
spaces, including one handicapped accessible space. The proposed use of a Bailbond Service is less
intense than the prior general retail use.

ANALYSIS
This is a request for a Special Use Permit for a Bailbond Service use within a 1,163 square-foot
tenant suite located at 1819 East Charleston Boulevard, Suite #102. Currently the site consists of
a commercial building with three suites. The subject Suite #102 is possibly being utilized as a
bail bond agency. There is a non-permitted banner in the store front and the suite appears to
operating as a Bailbond Service use. A complaint was forwarded to Code Enforcement for nonpermitted signage and to investigate if the office is currently utilized as bail bond agency. A
condition of approval was added to ensure all non-permitted signage is permitted or removed
within 30 days of final approval. The site is parking deficient.
The parking requirement for the proposed use of a Bailbond Service is less intense than the prior
General Retail Store, Other Than Listed use (a future store). Title 19.12 parking requirement for
a Bailbond Service use is a ratio of one parking space for every 300 square feet of gross floor
area and the parking ratio for a General Retail Store, Other Than Listed is one space for every
175 square feet of gross floor area. The site is Parking-Impaired as defined by Title 19.18.030.
The proposed use would be located on a 100-foot wide Primary Arterial with adequate site
access. Additionally, the subject site is within one mile of the downtown courthouse facilities.
The Bailbond Service use can be conducted in a harmonious and compatible manner with the
existing neighborhood.
This project has been properly noticed and the Las Vegas Valley Water District returned the
following comments: The parcel is currently served by LVVWD but does not have the required
backflow prevention per NAC 445A.67195. Civil plans will need to be submitted to LVVWD
for domestic meter sizing and backflow retrofit.
For the above reasons, staff is recommending approval of this application with conditions.

FINDINGS (SUP-62667)
In order to approve a Special Use Permit application, per Title 19.16.110(L) the Planning
Commission and City Council must affirm the following:
1.

The proposed land use can be conducted in a manner that is harmonious and
compatible with existing surrounding land uses, and with future surrounding land
uses as projected by the General Plan.

MR

SUP-62667 [PRJ-62494]
Staff Report Page Five
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

The proposed Bailbond Service use is close to the downtown courthouse facilities and can
be considered compatible and harmonious with the surrounding uses.

2.

The subject site is physically suitable for the type and intensity of land use proposed.
The site is parking impaired, but this use is less intense than a retail use. Other than the
parking impairment, the site is physically suitable for the type and intensity of land uses
proposed.

3.

Street or highway facilities providing access to the property are or will be adequate in
size to meet the requirements of the proposed use.
Access to the site is provided from Charleston Boulevard, which is a 100-foot wide
Primary Arterial according to the Master Plan of Streets and Highways. This roadway has
adequate capacity to meet the requirements of the Bailbond Service use.

4.

Approval of the Special Use Permit at the site in question will not be inconsistent with
or compromise the public health, safety, and welfare or the overall objectives of the
General Plan.
The proposed Bailbond Service use would be subject to inspections and would therefore
not compromise the public health and safety.

5.

The use meets all of the applicable conditions per Title 19.12.
There are no minimum Special Use Permit conditions per Title 19.12 for a Bailbond
Service use.

ANALYSIS
The applicant is proposing to establish a 5,372 square-foot College or University use within an

ANALYSIS
The applicant is proposing to establish a Urban Lounge use located in an existing commercial
development at 1018 South Main Street. The subject site is located with the C-M (Commercial /
Industrial) zoning district. This project is located within the Downtown Centennial Plan 18b Las
Vegas Arts District within a proposed 2,562 square-foot tenant space with 1,040 square feet of
outdoor seating located in the front of the building along Main Street and within an interior
courtyard in the rear of the building with seating for 74 people.
An Urban Lounge is defined by Title 19 as an establishment that is licensed for the sale of
alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises where the same are sold, and the sale, to
consumers only and not for resale, of alcoholic beverages in original sealed or corked containers,
for consumption off the premises where the same are sold. To qualify as an Urban Lounge, the
proposed use must meet all three minimum Special Use Permit requirements:
Minimum Special Use Permit Requirements
1. The use is limited to the area located within the boundaries of the Las Vegas Arts District, as
described in the Downtown Centennial Plan and as amended from time to time.

JB

SUP-62788 [PRJ-62697]
Staff Report Page Five
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

The subject site is located within the boundaries of the 18b Las Vegas Arts District as depicted in
the Las Vegas Downtown Centennial Plan
2. For each seat provided at the bar of the establishment, there must be a minimum of 2 seats
within a lounge area located away from the bar.
The floor plan associated with the proposed Urban Lounge indicates nine seats are provided
adjacent to the bar area with 31 additional seats located away from the bar area in the interior
tenant space seating area, which exceeds the 18 additional seats that are required. Also, there
are an additional 34 seats provided in the proposed outdoor seating areas.
3. The use is subject to the provisions of LVMC Chapter 6.40 relating to gaming and LVMC
Chapter 6.50 relating to liquor control.
The proposed Urban Lounge is operating within the provisions LVMC Chapter 6.40 relating to
gaming and LVMC Chapter 6.50 relating to liquor control.
The parcel is currently served by Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) but does not have
the required backflow prevention per NAC 445A.67195. Civil plans will need to be submitted to
(LVVWD) for domestic meter sizing and backflow retrofit.
This project is located on Main Street with ample parking for the proposed use provided by
public on-street parking located on all surrounding streets. The project is located within the
Downtown Centennial Plan area which allows for no automatic application of standard parking
requirements.
Staff recommends approval of the proposed Special Use Permit, with conditions, as this
proposed development specifically meets the goals of Las Vegas Downtown Centennial Plan18b Las Vegas Arts District by providing new opportunities for commercial ventures.
Because this is an outdoor establishment, staff has included conditions six through seven, which are
intended to ensure that all patrons are at least 21 years of age.

bailbond services and similar uses. Live/Work suites are available in this area of the urban core.
Outdoor seating, a security plan and an establishment theme are just three of the conditions that
may be placed upon a tavern-limited license. The floor plan indicates that eight seats will be
made available in front of the entrance along Main Street in addition to the main outdoor seating
area in the rear that will be covered by a canopy.
The parcel is currently served by the Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) but does not
have the required backflow prevention per NAC 445A.67195. Civil plans will need to be
submitted to LVVWD for domestic meter sizing and backflow retrofit.
Staff recommends approval of the proposed Special Use Permit, with conditions, as the
establishment can be conducted in a manner that is compatible with the adjacent uses this
proposed development specifically meets the goals of Las Vegas Downtown Centennial Plan18b Las Vegas Arts District by providing new opportunities for commercial ventures.

FINDINGS (SUP-62797)
In order to approve a Special Use Permit application, per Title 19.16.110(L) the Planning
Commission and City Council must affirm the following:
1.

The proposed land use can be conducted in a manner that is harmonious and
compatible with existing surrounding land uses, and with future surrounding land
uses as projected by the General Plan.

SS

SUP-62797 [PRJ-62666]
Staff Report Page Six
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

The proposed Tavern-Limited Establishment will be located within 18b The Las Vegas
Arts District, within which Tavern-Limited Establishments are authorized. The proposed
use can be conducted in a harmonious and compatible manner with the existing and future
development within the surrounding area.
2.

The subject site is physically suitable for the type and intensity of land use proposed.
The site is located within the Downtown Centennial Plan Overlay District, which
encourages such uses and allows for limited onsite parking.

3.

Street or highway facilities providing access to the property are or will be adequate in
size to meet the requirements of the proposed use.
Access to the property is provided from Main Street, an 80-foot public right-of-way
currently designated as a Primary Arterial by the Citys Master Plan of Streets and
Highways. Secondary access is provided by a rear alleyway. These roads are adequate in
size to meet the needs of the proposed Tavern-Limited Establishment use.

4.

Approval of the Special Use Permit at the site in question will not be inconsistent with
or compromise the public health, safety, and welfare or the overall objectives of the
General Plan.
The proposed Tavern-Limited Establishment will be subject to licensing review and
regular inspection, thereby safeguarding the public health, safety and welfare. Objective
1.3 (To recognize the role of gaming, tourism and entertainment as a principal focus of
Downtown Las Vegas, while at the same time to expand the role of other commercial,
government and cultural activities in the Downtown core) and Policy 1.3.2 (That new
retail and service commercial development be encouraged within the Downtown to serve
the emerging housing market. In particular, this development should be weighted towards
restaurants, retail shops, and service businesses intended to serve local residents as well as
the tourist market) of the Las Vegas 2020 Master Plan are fulfilled by this proposal.

5.

The use meets all of the applicable conditions per Title 19.12.
Title 19 does not contain minimum special use permit requirements for the Tavern-Limited
Establishment use.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting to establish a previously public street (Rose Street south of Goldring
Avenue) as a private street with an address that is intended to be recognized by governmental
and quasi-governmental agencies. After it was vacated in 2009, Rose Street was remapped and
became part of the larger University Medical Center campus as an unnamed driveway.
However, this has created difficulty for emergency medical personnel and others in locating the
UMC Trauma Center, which is still addressed as 800 Rose Street. Since Rose Street no longer
exists south of Goldring Avenue, it is not recognized throughout Las Vegas Valley street
databases. The applicant is requesting to name the new private street Hope Place in
connection with the hospital in general and the trauma center in particular; however, a Variance
is required to allow the primary street name of Hope, which already exists in unincorporated
Clark County. Furthermore, the suffix Place is incongruent with the Citys street naming
standards. The street meets all Title 19 conditional use requirements for private streets, and it is
sufficiently distant from what is a short, local street in Clark County that the most critically
affected public entity, the Las Vegas Department of Fire and Rescue, has no objection to the new
street name. Staff therefore recommends approval of the Variance, subject to conditions. If this
request is denied, the roadway will remain a private driveway without the ability to address
buildings with reference to this driveway.

ISSUES

A Variance is required to allow a primary street name (Hope) to be used more than once
and on a different alignment than an existing street located in unincorporated Clark County,
and to allow the suffix Place to be used for a north-south oriented street where it is
generally required to be used for northwest-southeast oriented streets.
The Las Vegas Department of Fire and Rescue approves the street name change, as the block
range and street type differ from that used in unincorporated Clark County and is unlikely to
delay emergency response.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Related Relevant City Actions by P&D, Fire, Bldg., etc.
An Order of Vacation (VAC-27906) to vacate Rose Street south of Goldring
Avenue was recorded. The City Council approved the Petition to Vacate on
09/17/09
07/16/08, with recommendations of approval by the Planning Commission
and staff.

lots to acreage and combine together with additional unsubdivided acreage on
04/18/13
15.58 acres at the southwest corner of Willow Street and Goldring Avenue
was recorded.
Most Recent Change of Ownership
03/15/74
A deed was recorded for a change in ownership.
Related Building Permits/Business Licenses
There are no relevant building permits or business licenses related to this request.
Pre-Application Meeting
A pre-application meeting was held with the applicant to discuss submittal
requirements for a Variance application. It was determined at the meeting
that the former Rose Street met the conditional use regulations for a private
12/17/15
street, but a Conditional Use Verification would need to be completed in
order for the street to be officially named and recognized by the City and
County.
Neighborhood Meeting
A neighborhood meeting is not required, nor was one held.
Field Check

12/31/15

The former Rose Street remains a fully improved street with curbs, gutters
and sidewalks. The UMC Trauma Center is located on the west side of the
street. A parking lot is located on the east side of the street. One block
south of Goldring Avenue, the street turns eastward and connects with Willow
Street. A street sign is located at the corner of Goldring Avenue that still
identifies the street as Rose Street.

ANALYSIS
The University Medical Center property is located within the Las Vegas Medical District and
regulated by the Las Vegas Medical District Plan. It is zoned PD (Planned Development) [MD-2
(Major Medical) Special Land Use Designation]. Where the Medical District Plan is silent, Title
19 applies. Since the Medical District Plan does not address street naming or addressing,
treatment of these issues defers to Title 19.
There are two mechanisms to declare streets as private that are provided through Title 19. The
first is to dedicate a street to the City through a mapping action (parcel map or other subdivision
map as described in Title 19.16); the other is to ensure private maintenance of an existing
(public) street through use conditions contained in Title 19.12.070. As the street physically
exists, the latter option is possible even though it currently functions as a private drive and is not
a recognized street; this is the option preferred by the applicant. The street still meets public
street requirements for a 60-foot wide Minor Collector as classified by Title 13.12 and is being
maintained privately, thereby fulfilling the conditions for a Private Street use. The applicant has
completed and submitted a Conditional Use Verification Form in order to request declaration of
a private street.
The Street Naming and Addressing and Addressing Assignment Regulations, 2009 Edition
requires that a primary street name (that is, the base street name without a prefix or suffix) shall
be used only once and shall not be used in any other alignment. As there is an existing street in
unincorporated Clark County named Hope Street, a variance is required to allow the name to be
reused on a different alignment. Hope Street is two blocks long and the alignment is unbroken. In
addition, the same street naming regulations require that the suffix Place be applied to
generally northwest-southeast oriented streets, whereas this request would be for a north-south
street.
The Departments of Fire and Rescue and Public Works for the city of Las Vegas would be most
affected by the change. The building address would have to be changed by the Department of
Planning if approved. The Combined Communications Center has provided written confirmation
that it does not object to and therefore approves the street name change from Rose Street to Hope
Place.

FINDINGS (VAR-62789)
In accordance with the provisions of Title 19.16.140(B), Planning Commission and City Council,
in considering the merits of a Variance request, shall not grant a Variance in order to:
1.
2.
3.

Permit a use in a zoning district in which the use is not allowed;


Vary any minimum spacing requirement between uses;
Relieve a hardship which is solely personal, self-created or financial in nature.

SS

VAR-62789 [PRJ-62691]
Staff Report Page Five
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

Additionally, Title 19.16.140(L) states:


Where by reason of exceptional narrowness, shallowness, or shape of a specific piece of
property at the time of enactment of the regulation, or by reason of exceptional
topographic conditions or other extraordinary and exceptional situation or condition of
the piece of property, the strict application of any zoning regulation would result in
peculiar and exceptional practical difficulties to, or exceptional and undue hardships
upon, the owner of the property, a variance from that strict application may be granted so
as to relieve the difficulties or hardship, if the relief may be granted without substantial
detriment to the public good, without substantial impairment of affected natural resources
and without substantially impairing the intent and purpose of any ordinance or
resolution.
The applicant has demonstrated that having a private driveway with a name that is not
recognized by the City or other entities is a true hardship, as it limits the ability of emergency
medical personnel to locate the existing trauma center onsite. As the street in question is only
one block long, does not conflict with the existing Hope Street in block range and the change
would not have a negative effect on area traffic or wayfinding, staff recommends approval of the
Variance, with conditions.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is proposing to convert an existing 55-foot tall, 14-foot by 48-foot, double sided
off-premise sign (Billboard) to a digital display unit (LED) at 2252 Paradise Road. The subject
site is zoned C-2 (General Commercial), surrounded by commercial uses, and is adjacent to
Sahara Avenue, a 100-foot Primary Arterial as defined by the Master Plan of Streets and
Highways. The subject Off-Premise Sign is double sided, with the sign faces being oriented to
the west and east. With the nearest residential property being approximately 550 feet away from
the proposed Off-Premise Sign conversion, staff finds the conversion of the subject Off-Premise
Sign to a digital display unit (LED) to be compatible and appropriate for the area and is
recommending approval of this application, subject to conditions. If denied, the Off-Premise
Sign will remain; however, the sign will not be able to convert to a digital LED format.

ISSUES

Pursuant to Title 19.12.120(G)(4), the proposed modification exceeds the scope of the
Directors authority and is subject to a Site Development Plan Review with a public
hearing rather than by means of the Special Use Permit process otherwise applicable.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Related Relevant City Actions by P&D, Fire, Bldg., etc.
The Board of City Commissioners approved a request for Rezoning (Z-001464) from R-4 (High Density Residential) to C-1 (Limited Commercial) of
05/06/64
property generally located on the west side of Paradise Road between Sahara
Avenue and St. Louis Avenue. The Planning Commission recommended
approval of the request.
The Board of City Commissioners denied an appeal of a Variance
(V-0013-73) to allow a three-sided Off-Premise Sign to a height of 55 feet in
04/18/73
a residential zone where no Off-Premise Signs are allowed on property
located on the northwest corner of East Sahara Avenue and Paradise Road.
The Board of Zoning Adjustment denied the request.
The City Council approved an appeal of the denial of Special Use Permit
(SUP-1274) for a 14-foot by 48-foot Off-Premise Sign to be 55 feet tall where
01/22/03
40 feet is the maximum allowed adjacent to the northwest corner of Sahara
Avenue and Paradise Road. The Planning Commission denied the application
on 12/19/02, and staff recommended approval.

ANALYSIS
Off-premise signs are to be considered primarily a specific type of land use rather than as an
incidental use to an existing land use. Off-premise signs generally produce revenue to the
property owner(s) as a land use as compared to on-premise signs which in themselves do not
produce revenue but are incidental to a revenue producing land use. However, because of the
special characteristics of off-premise signs as compared to other types of land uses and
structures, certain qualifications and requirements are set forth in connection with off-premise
signs as permitted use in certain zoning districts.
Pursuant to Title 19.12.120(G)(1), The Director shall have the authority to grant approval, by
means of a Minor Site Development Plan Review under LVMC 19.16.100(F), to do any of the
following regarding an off-premise sign within 660 feet of any highway classified by the State of
Nevada as part of the interstate or primary highway system The subject site is approximately
4,300 feet east of Interstate 15 and is not eligible for review under this provision. In accordance
with Title 19.12.120(G)(4), In the case of an adjustment, relocation or modification that exceeds
the scope of the Directors authority under Paragraph (1) aboveAction by the City Council
under this Paragraph (4) will be pursuant to a Site Development Plan Review with a public
hearing rather than by means of the Special Use Permit process otherwise applicable.
The applicant has proposed to convert an existing 55-foot tall, 14-foot by 48-foot, double sided
off-premise sign (Billboard) into a digital display unit (LED) at 2252 Paradise Road. The subject
site is zoned C-2 (General Commercial), and is surrounded by commercially zoned districts with
commercial uses such as general retail and offices. The subject site is also adjacent to Sahara
Avenue, a 100-foot Primary Arterial as defined by the Master Plan of Streets and Highways. The
subject off-premise sign is double sided, with the sign faces oriented to west and east and Sahara
Avenue. With the nearest residential property being approximately 550 feet away from the
proposed off-premise sign, staff finds the conversion of the subject off-premise sign to a digital
display unit (LED) to be compatible and appropriate for the area and is recommending approval
of this application.

ANALYSIS
The applicant is requesting three Major Deviations to permit proposed walls varying in height
from 11 feet to 14.5 feet adjacent to Far Hill Drive. The applicant is responding the Master
Developers request to change the type and height of the Village perimeter walls. The sites have
slopes greater than nine percent that account for the variation in wall height.
Pursuant to Section 5 of the Summerlin Development Standards, a Major Deviation within the
Summerlin Master Planned Community requires the application be referred to the Planning
Commission for review and decision. All deviations must be exercised within one year from the
date of approval, or the deviation shall be null and void.
Pursuant to Section 2 of the Summerlin Development Standards, fences and walls, including
retaining walls, or a combination thereof, may be built up to 10 feet high (as measured from the
side of the wall with the maximum vertical exposure) without a major deviation. This condition
shall apply to perimeter village walls and monument walls only. Walls may be built up to 10 feet
high, plus four feet of retaining, next to maintenance facilities, reservoirs, power substations,
utility appertenances, and similar uses without a major deviation. Walls may be built up to 14
feet high, plus four feet in retaining, next to the Western Beltway without a major deviation.

The walls in question are Perimeter Village walls across the rear of three residential lots. The
applicant changed the style and heights of the wall based on the Master Developer feedback. The
applicant received approval from the Howard Hughes Corporation (Summerlin) for the proposed
wall design and heights. The additional wall heights are justified, as the site has extreme grade
changes. The walls are not unsightly and can be constructed in a manner that is consistent with
future land uses therefore; staff recommends approval of all three requests.

FINDINGS (SCD-62724)
The applicants request is reasonable due to the extreme elevation change of the lot. Summerlin
Development Standards utilizes a Major Deviation in place of a variance. If this request was a
Variance it would be within the realm of NRS Chapter 278 for granting a Variance. The wall
height along Far Hills Avenue will not compromise public health or safety and the wall can be
constructed in a manner that is aesthetically consistent with the existing neighborhood. Approval
of this Major Deviation will allow the applicant to utilize this site more efficiently. Staff agrees
that the hardship requested in this case is valid and therefore recommends approval of this
Summerlin Major Deviation.

Summerlin Major Deviation.

Planning
1.

The limits of this Petition of Vacation shall be the entire width of the alley from Clark
Avenue to approximately 175 feet south of Clark Avenue located between Fourth Street
and Las Vegas Boulevard.

2.

Provide a plan showing how the right-of-way proposed to be vacated will be incorporated
into the abutting properties, including those properties not controlled by the applicant, so
that an un-maintained no-mans land area is not produced by this action. The required
plan shall identify exactly who is responsible to reclaim each portion of right-of-way and
exactly how the right-of-way will be reclaimed, and shall provide a schedule of when such
reclamation will occur. Additionally, the plan shall detail traffic operations for public
traffic that needs to be rerouted through or around the vacated portion of the alley. Such
plan shall be approved by the City Traffic Engineer prior to the recordation of the Order of
Vacation or the submittal of any construction drawings adjacent to or overlying the area
requested for vacation, whichever may occur first.

been met provided, however, that conditions requiring modification of public
improvements may be fulfilled for purposes of recordation by providing sufficient security
for the performance thereof in accordance with the Subdivision Ordinance of the City of
Las Vegas. City Staff is empowered to modify this application if necessary because of
technical concerns or because of other related review actions as long as current City right
of way requirements are still complied with and the intent of the vacation application is not
changed. If applicable, a five foot wide easement for public streetlight and fire hydrant
purposes shall be retained on all vacation actions abutting public street corridors that will
remain dedicated and available for public use. Also, if applicable and where needed, public
easement corridors and sight visibility or other easements that would/should cross any
right-of-way or easement being vacated must be retained.

7.

All development shall be in conformance with code requirements and design standards of
all City Departments, except amended herein.

8.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is petitioning the City to relinquish its interest in a portion of a public alley that
would otherwise run adjacent to an approved state courthouse. According to the applicant,
vacation of the portion of the alley adjacent to APNs 139-34-303-002, 139-34-311-151 and 13934-311-153 will allow the applicant to restrict public access behind the courthouse, thereby
keeping the area safer. An accompanying Variance (VAR-6177) is required to allow a vacated
alley to terminate in a dead end design. The requested variance reinforces the unsuitability of the
requested Vacation and therefore staff recommends denial of both applications.

ISSUES

The area of the proposed Vacation request is to provide additional safety for the proposed
26,600 square-foot Federal Courthouse approved by Site Development Plan Review (SDR59956).
A Variance from Title 19.04.100 is required to allow a public right-of-way to terminate in a
dead end where a cul-de-sac or perpetual vehicular access through the site is required.

ANALYSIS
This request is to vacate approximately a 175-foot long portion of the public alley that abuts
Clark Avenue and runs south and parallel to Las Vegas Boulevard. A Variance accompanies the
application, because the entire alleyway is not being vacated, or a public outlet to a public street
or a cul-de-sac that meets code is not provided. The applicants reason for the vacation is to
provide additional security for the future Federal Courthouse.

MR

VAR-61777 and VAC-61552 [PRJ-60669]


Staff Report Page Four
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

The Uniform Development Code, Section 19.04.100 states that: For public streets which
terminate other than at an intersection with another public street, and private streets that
terminate other than at an intersection with another private or public street, the termination shall
be provided by means of a circular cul-de-sac that shall be designed and installed in accordance
with City standards.
Staff has met and been in contact with the applicant and explained that traffic heading north in
the alley needs to either have a place to turn around (cul-de-sac) or a dedicated minimum 20-foot
wide public outlet to a public street. The I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement)
building on the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Clark Avenue is an example of
utilizing a 20-foot wide outlet to a public street. Failure to comply with this requirement will
result in a dead end public right-of- way that doesnt have a legal turnaround or an outlet to a
public street. Vehicles entering the alley will have no legal way of turning around and may be
forced to back up in the alley for approximately 250 feet.
It is noted that the applicant owns the properties to the east of the proposed vacation and staff has
a signed, notarized letter from owner of the parcels to the south (APN #139-34-311-158 and 159) stating they have no objection to the requested vacation and are aware of the affected
change in access.
In regard to recent vacation requests of alley vacations or partial alley vacations, the entire alley
was vacated or a public right was granted either by easement or dedication as an outlet to a
public street. If this Variance is approved, it will be one of a few alley vacations of its kind in
the City of Las Vegas and not be consistent with recent approvals of alley vacations.
The following information concerning this request to vacate certain public street ROW:
A. Does this vacation request result in uniform or non-uniform right-of-way widths?
N/A as the width of the alley isnt being reduced, only the length.
B. From a traffic handling viewpoint will this vacation request result in a reduced
traffic handling capability? No, since it is an alley that is currently not being used
very much, since the adjacent buildings are mostly vacant.
C. Does it appear that the vacation request involves only excess right-of-way? No, it is
to vacate an alley adjacent to a proposed courthouse for security purposes.
D. Does this vacation request coincide with development plans of the adjacent parcels?
Yes, the adjacent Nevada Supreme Court building, SDR-59556.
E. Does this vacation request eliminate public street access to any abutting parcel? No,
since all parcels are accessible from public streets.
F. Does this vacation request result in a conflict with any existing City requirements?
Yes, the proposed vacation terminates the alley without the benefit of a cul-de-sac or a
dedicated outlet to a public street.

VAR-61777 and VAC-61552 [PRJ-60669]


Staff Report Page Five
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

G. Does the Department of Public Works have an objection to this vacation request?
Yes, since the proposed vacation does not have a proposed dedicated cul-de-sac or
outlet.

FINDINGS (VAC-61552)
The proposed Petition of Vacation (VAC-61552) does not meet the requirements of Title
19.04.100 and the applicant has not presented a bona-fide hardship for the required Variance.
This Petition of Vacation proposes to end in a non-typical manner and requires the approval of a
variance that is preferential in nature and therefore staff recommends denial of this request.

FINDINGS (VAR-61777)
In accordance with the provisions of Title 19.16.140(B), Planning Commission and City Council,
in considering the merits of a Variance request, shall not grant a Variance in order to:
1.
2.
3.

Permit a use in a zoning district in which the use is not allowed;


Vary any minimum spacing requirement between uses;
Relieve a hardship which is solely personal, self-created or financial in nature.

Additionally, Title 19.16.140(L) states:


Where by reason of exceptional narrowness, shallowness, or shape of a specific piece of
property at the time of enactment of the regulation, or by reason of exceptional
topographic conditions or other extraordinary and exceptional situation or condition of
the piece of property, the strict application of any zoning regulation would result in
peculiar and exceptional practical difficulties to, or exceptional and undue hardships
upon, the owner of the property, a variance from that strict application may be granted so
as to relieve the difficulties or hardship, if the relief may be granted without substantial
detriment to the public good, without substantial impairment of affected natural resources
and without substantially impairing the intent and purpose of any ordinance or
resolution.
No evidence of a unique or extraordinary circumstance has been presented, in that the applicant
has created a self-imposed hardship by not vacating the entire alleyway, ending the partially
vacated alley without providing a cul-de-sac or providing a public outlet to a public street.
Alternatively, the applicant could vacate the entire alley, provide a turnaround that meets code or
provide a 20-foot wide outlet to a public street. In view of the absence of any hardships imposed
by the sites physical characteristics, it is concluded that the applicants hardship is preferential
in nature, and it is thereby outside the realm of NRS Chapter 278 for granting of Variances.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting approval of a proposed 18-lot single-family, detached residential
subdivision on five acres located at the southeast corner of Grand Canyon Drive and Deer
Springs Way in Centennial Hills. The parcel is currently undeveloped. This project includes a
request to Rezoning from U (Undeveloped) [R (Rural Density Residential) General Plan land use
designation] to R-1 (Single Family Residential) zoning district; a Vacation of Patent Easements
along the perimeter of the project; two Variances to allow reduced front yard setbacks to 10 feet
from the required 20 feet on lots nine and ten as a result of the cul-de-sac location; a Waiver of
the 220 feet intersection distance separation requirement; and a Tentative Map. Staff supports
the request to rezone the property, the Waiver, Vacation and Tentative Map applications, but
does not support the requests for the Variances. If denied, the parcel would remain zoned as U
(Undeveloped) [R (Rural Density Residential) General Plan land use designation] and
undeveloped pending approval of a future entitlement.

ISSUES

Two Variances are requested to allow a 10-foot front yard setback on lots nine and ten,
where 20 feet is required in an R-1 (Single Family Residential) zoning district. Staff does
not support these requests;
A Waiver is required to allow a 193-foot external intersection offset, where 220 feet is
the minimum distance separation required. Staff supports the request; and
A Vacation is requested for Patent Easements located on the perimeter of the
development and is no longer required. Staff supports this request.

A deed was recorded for a change in ownership.

Related Building Permits/Business Licenses


A sign permit (#183388) was issued for a subdivision directional sign at 9519

A sign permit (#271503) was issued for a temporary sign at 9587 West Deer
10/16/14

Pre-Application Meeting
Staff met with the applicant and reviewed their proposal for an 18-lot
residential subdivision. It was noted that an Equestrian Trail along Grand
Canyon Drive would have to be installed. After the meeting, the applicant
11/23/15
received the model homes to be offered and realized that they would not fit on
lots nine or ten and Variances would be needed for each lot to allow a 10-foot
front yard setback.

Neighborhood Meeting
The applicant held a voluntary neighborhood meeting at the Centennial Hills
YMCA. The meeting started at 6 p.m. and ended at 6:35 p.m. There were
two applicants, eight members of the public and one City of Las Vegas staff
member present.
12/07/15

All members of the public in attendance were in favor of the project. The
applicant indicated that the street pave date for Grand Canyon Drive and Deer
Springs Way was going to be, weather permitting, on December 30th. The
only outstanding issue was if the new street was going to be right in, right out,
as a result of the existing bumper median on Echelon Point Drive.

Field Check

12/03/15

Staff visited the site and took photographs. The parcel had a six-foot high
non-permitted chain link fence securing it. There was a large residential
development sign and two large poles from an older similar sign on the
northwest portion of the site. It was noted that the proposed Sycamore Pines
Street would be a right in and right out only at the intersection of Echelon
Point Drive as there are barriers present to prevent such turns.

February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

ANALYSIS
The subject request is to change the zoning designation of a tract of land located adjacent to the
southeast corner of Deer Springs Way and Grand Canyon Drive from U (Undeveloped) [R (Rural
Density Residential) General Plan designation] to R-1 (Single Family Residential) district. The
request is permitted under the R (Rural Density Residential) General Plan land use designation. If
approved, this project would promote Objective 2.6 of the General Plan: to improve the amount
and quality of infill development on vacant and underutilized lands within established areas of the
city. The proposed Rezoning request would facilitate a permitted zoning district under the R
(Rural Density Residential) land use designation.
The General Plan Land Use designation of R (Rural Density Residential) allows up to 3.59 dwelling
units per acre and supports the requested R-1 (Single Family Residential) zoning district request.
The surrounding residential developments are similar in scope and density. Staff finds that the R-1
(Single Family Residential) zoning district request can be supported as an appropriate district for the
surrounding residential neighborhoods and recommends approval.
The Variance requests are for lot nine and lot ten that are located on the north end of the project
adjacent to the cul-de-sac. The applicant states the driveways will be 20 feet long, but the front
of the houses will be located within the front yard setback area. This is a self-created hardship
by the applicant as a result of offering housing footprints that are too large for the self-created
parcels. Per Title 19.16.140(B) 2: a Variance shall not be granted in order to relieve a hardship
which is solely personal, self-created or financial in nature. Staff does not support these
applications as the applicant could offer a housing product that fits on the self-created/proposed
lots.
The Waiver request would allow the distance between the Grand Canyon Drive intersection and the
proposed street (Sycamore Pines Street) intersection to be 193 feet, where the code requirement is to
have a minimum of 220 feet. The increased volume of traffic during drop-off and pick-up times
when the primary school, located on the south side of Echelon Point Drive, is open has created
traffic concerns. A median of bumper wheel stops has been installed along Echelon Point Drive to
prevent U-turns and other unsafe traffic movements to enhance the pedestrian safety. Sycamore
Pines Street is designed to Title 19.04.220 Residential Street (Narrow Lot) standards and will be a
public street.
The Department of Public Works has indicated that they have no objection to the Waiver, but notes
that the reduced length proposed between intersections could cause the new intersection at
Sycamore Pines Street and Echelon Point Drive to become blocked during high traffic times. As a
result, staff supports the requested Waiver.

An equestrian trail is designated along the east side of Grand Canyon Way. The applicant is
developing the trail to code requirements along the Grand Canyon Way frontage. Complete Street
standards are also being installed along Deer Springs Way, Echelon Point Drive and the proposed
Sycamore Pines Street right-of-way. The applicant is also exceeding the connectivity ratio by
providing a pedestrian connection between the cul-de-sac on Sycamore Pines Street and Deer
Springs Way.
The Department of Public Works submitted the following comments: we have no objection to
the vacation application request to relinquish the Citys interests in U.S. Government Patent
Reservations generally located on the southeast corner of Deer Springs Way and Grand Canyon
Drive. This Vacation request should be sent to all the utilities however, as no right-of-way is
proposed to be vacated, and thus no franchise rights are involved, it is not necessary to wait for
responses from any of the public utilities or other parties interested in preserving a right in this
patent easement. Since only City interests are involved; any utility companys interests will need
to be addressed with each respective utility company and will not be affected by the City
relinquishing its interest
The submitted east/west cross sections depict maximum natural grades greater than 2% across
this site. Per the Tables in Subdivision Code 19.06.050 a development with natural slopes
greater than 2%, is allowed a maximum six-foot retaining wall. There is one 5.5-foot high
retaining wall shown along the west property line and a 3.56-foot retaining wall shown along the
east property line. Both are in conformance with code requirements.
The submitted north/south cross section depicts maximum natural grades less than 2% across the
site. Per the Tables in Subdivision Code 19.06.050, a development with natural slopes less than
2% is allowed a maximum four-foot retaining wall. There are three retaining walls shown in the
north/south cross section, each one is approximately one-foot in height. Both are in conformance
with code requirements.
The Clark County School District was provided an opportunity to comment on the proposed
development. However, no comments were received that indicated either a favorable or
unfavorable review of the proposed residential project.
The Tentative Map reflects an 18-lot single-family residential subdivision. The site is laid out
along a public street, tentative named Sycamore Pines Street, terminating in a cul-de-sac. The
applicant has provided a pedestrian connection to Deer Springs Way between lots nine and ten,
which enables the proposed subdivision to exceed the connectivity ratio of 1.3.
The proposed lots range in size from 6,955 square feet to 10,011 square feet. Site access is
proposed from Echelon Point Drive by way of a 47-foot wide public street (Sycamore Pines
Street). No neighborhood parks are proposed, however 12,154 square feet, or 8.7% of open
space via the two common elements, is being provided.

February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

FINDINGS (ZON-62349)
In order to approve a Rezoning application, pursuant to Title 19.16.090(L), the Planning
Commission or City Council must affirm the following:
1.

The proposal conforms to the General Plan.


The proposed Rezoning to R-1 (Single Family Residential) conforms to the density range
allowed by the existing R (Rural Density Residential) General Plan land use designation
and supports Objective 2.6., that states: to improve the amount and quality of infill
development on vacant and underutilized lands within established areas of the city.

2.

The uses which would be allowed on the subject property by approving the rezoning
will be compatible with the surrounding land uses and zoning districts.
The detached single-family residential use proposed on the subject property is proposed at
an appropriate density with the surrounding properties and is therefore, compatible with
the density uses and zoning designations of these surrounding properties. The average lot
size for this proposed development is 8,483 square feet. This is larger than the average lot
sizes to the east (6,000 square feet); the west (7,840 square feet) and the north (7,840
square feet).

3.

Growth and development factors in the community indicate the need for or
appropriateness of the rezoning.
From November 2014 to November 2015 there has been an 11.4% increase in the number
of housing permits requested in the City of Las Vegas. The density and size of the lots
proposed for the property to be rezoned will resemble the development pattern of
surrounding properties. The proposed Rezoning is therefore appropriate.

4.

Street or highway facilities providing access to the property are or will be adequate in
size to meet the requirements of the proposed zoning district.
Access to the property is provided by Echelon Point Drive, identified as a 60-foot Minor
Collector Street on the Master Plan of Streets and Highways. This right-of-way is
adequate to meet the traffic demands of the proposed single-family residential
development.

FINDINGS (VAR-62351)
In accordance with the provisions of Title 19.16.140(B), Planning Commission and City Council,
in considering the merits of a Variance request, shall not grant a Variance in order to:

Permit a use in a zoning district in which the use is not allowed;


Vary any minimum spacing requirement between uses;
Relieve a hardship which is solely personal, self-created or financial in nature.

Additionally, Title 19.16.140(L) states:


Where by reason of exceptional narrowness, shallowness, or shape of a specific piece of
property at the time of enactment of the regulation, or by reason of exceptional
topographic conditions or other extraordinary and exceptional situation or condition of
the piece of property, the strict application of any zoning regulation would result in
peculiar and exceptional practical difficulties to, or exceptional and undue hardships
upon, the owner of the property, a variance from that strict application may be granted so
as to relieve the difficulties or hardship, if the relief may be granted without substantial
detriment to the public good, without substantial impairment of affected natural resources
and without substantially impairing the intent and purpose of any ordinance or
resolution.
No evidence of a unique or extraordinary circumstance has been presented, in that the applicant
has created a self-imposed hardship by offering model homes that to not fit on their self-created
lots. An Alternative is to offer model homes that would allow conformance to the Title 19
requirements. In view of the absence of any hardships imposed by the sites physical
characteristics, it is concluded that the applicants hardship is preferential in nature, and it is
thereby outside the realm of NRS Chapter 278 for granting of Variances.

FINDINGS (WVR-62529)
Public Works has no immediate concerns with the requested Waiver of intersection offset distance.
Traffic counts at the affected intersections are expected to be low, and the separation distance is
sufficient to minimize traffic conflicts. However, the location of a primary school with a history of high
traffic counts and backed-up streets would indicate that a reduction in the intersection offset may cause
the proposed street intersection to be blocked during the peak drop-off and pick-up times while the
school is open.

FINDINGS (VAC-62354
Staff has no objection to the vacation of this Patent Easement, as the easements are no longer
required. Staff recommends approval with conditions.

FINDINGS (TMP-62355)
The proposed Tentative Map conforms to Nevada Revised Statutes. However, the project
requires a Waiver from Title 19 Development Standards. Staff supports both the Waiver and the
Tentative Map requests and recommends approval, subject to conditions.

support the proposed single-famly residentialsubdivision on 5.00 acres

I oppose

the variance to allow a l0-foot front yard where 20 feet is required on lot nine.

the rezoning from rural density residental to single family residential does not support
a 10 foot front yard. Making the lot open space would be far more a ppropriate for the
development
I believe

offset. I do know, that due to


the beginnng and ending of the school day at the adjacent middle school, traffc congestion is a
real problem. A traffc light should be installed at the intersection of Deer Springs Way and
Grand Canyon Drive. {The development on the northwest corner of Deer Springs Way and
Grand Canyon (Marbella) moved their entrance further west on Deer Springs Way to help
I defer

to planning the request for

a smaller external intersection

mediate this congestion.)

This project will add approximately 172 trips per day on Deer Springs Wy., Grand Canyon Dr. and Echelon Point Dr. Deer
Springs is currently at about 42 percent of capacity and Grand Canyon is at about 13 percent of capacity. After this
project, Deer Springs is expected to be at about 42 percent of capacity and Grand Canyon to be at about 14 percent of
capacity. Counts are not available on this portion of Echelon Point, but it is believed to be under capacity except during
school drop off and pick up.
Based on Peak Hour use, this development will add into the area roughly 18 additional cars, or about one every three
minutes.
Note that this report assumes all traffic from this development uses all named streets.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
This is the first Required Review for a previously approved Special Use Permit (SUP-57330) for
an Alternative Parking Standard to allow four parking spaces where 19 parking spaces were
required for a proposed General Personal Service at 200 Foremaster Lane. Per Condition
Number one of Special Use Permit (SUP-57330), a six-month public hearing review before the
Planning Commission was required to evaluate whether or not the alternative parking standard
was sufficient for the proposed General Personal Service use.
Field checks performed by staff have discovered the business is not operational at this time. With
the proposed use not in operation at this time, staff was not able to properly evaluate whether or
not the alternative parking standard is sufficient for the proposed use; therefore, staff
recommends approval of this review, with another review to occur six months after issuance of a
business license.

ISSUES

This is the first Required Review for a previously approved Special Use Permit (SUP-57330)

February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

ANALYSIS
This is the first request for a Required Review of a previously approved Special Use Permit
(SUP-57330) for an Alternative Parking Standard that allows for four parking spaces where 19
parking spaces are required for a General Personal Service use at 200 Foremaster Lane. Per
Condition Number one of Special Use Permit (SUP-57330), a six month public hearing review
was required before Planning Commission to evaluate whether or not the alternative parking
standard was sufficient for the proposed General Personal Service use.
Staff from the Department of Planning performed two field checks of the subject. The first,
performed on December 3, 2015 found miscellaneous items being stored outdoors and temporary
signs posted without the proper permits. The second field check was performed on December
28, 2015, where staff found the gates to be locked, but was able to contact individuals on-site
who confirmed the business is nonoperational at this time. Staff advised the individuals that a
permit would be required for the temporary signs (banners), to stripe the handicap parking stall
in accordance with Title 19.08.110, to remove the electrical extension cord from the window to
the parking lot, and to remove one dumpster and store the remaining trash receptacles in the rear.

FINDINGS
With the proposed business being nonoperational at this time, staff was unable to evaluate
whether or not the alternative parking standard is sufficient for the proposed use. Staff is
recommending approval of this Required Review, with a condition requiring a second review be
performed six months after the date of issuance of a business license allowing staff the ability to
appropriately evaluate the alternative parking standard once the proposed use is licensed and
operating.

SDR-62361 [PRJ-61920]
Staff Report Page One
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting to construct a five-story, 66-foot tall mixed use development with
1,422 square feet of commercial floor space and 48 multi-family residential units. The site is
currently vacant with a streetlight and several trees in the sidewalk along the frontage. Parking is
to be integrated into a 19-space garage at the ground level. The commercial area would occupy
one ground-level suite, and residential units would occupy Levels 2-5. Multi-family units are
rental only (no for-sale units). Access to garage would be for residents only through a remote
control roll gate from the rear alley. The development does not integrate adequate parking
facilities onsite and therefore must supplement parking by providing offsite facilities. At this
time there is no agreement in place for offsite facilities. The development is therefore not
compatible with the subject site and staff recommends denial. If denied, permits for the
proposed development cannot be issued.

ISSUES

A mapping action to combine the underlying platted lots must be recorded prior to the
issuance of building permits for vertical construction.
Fewer on-site parking spaces are proposed than residential units. According to the applicant,
it is anticipated that most residents would use public transit or park additional vehicles at
another nearby parking lot operated by the owner.
A parking agreement for off-site parking in order to meet a minimum mandated parking
requirement of 50 spaces is required for the life of the development or until the spaces can be
provided onsite. This has been added as a condition of approval.
No waivers of Downtown Centennial Plan standards were requested. However, the plan
requires awnings, arcades and canopies at the ground level of the building unless waived by
the City Council as part of a Site Development Plan Review. A condition of approval was
added by staff to provide the required awnings and canopies on a revised set of elevations.
A revised site plan will be required to accommodate appurtenances required by the Las
Vegas Valley Water District. A Waiver to allow above-ground utilities may be required.
No additional landscaping will be provided by the applicant. However, a technical landscape
plan is required to be submitted as part of the building permit plan submittal package, as the
applicant is responsible for maintenance of landscaping within the right-of-way adjacent to
the site. On this plan the existing landscaping shall be accurately depicted.

Pre-Application Meeting
Submittal requirements for a proposed mixed-use development were
discussed. The proposed development meets all of the conditional use
regulations for this use of land; therefore, no Special Use Permit would be
necessary. Staff was concerned about the ratio of parking provided to the
number of residential units. The applicant The proposed development meets
all of the conditional use regulations for this use of land; therefore, no Special
10/28/15
Use Permit would be necessary. Staff was concerned about the ratio of
parking provided to the number of residential units. The applicant explained
that additional parking could be provided on a nearby lot owned by the
applicant. Staff also determined that although the current parcel is of
substandard width, removing lot lines through a parcel map would not affect
the nonconforming status of the parcel.

Neighborhood Meeting
A neighborhood meeting is not required, nor was one held.

SDR-62361 [PRJ-61920]
Staff Report Page Five
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

ANALYSIS
Projects within the Office Core District are subject to the requirements of the Downtown
Centennial Plan. Where the Downtown Centennial Plan Manual is silent, the regulations of Title
19 apply. This project qualifies as New Development for purposes of Section VIII
(Implementation) of the Downtown Centennial Plan. Mixed Use is a conditional use in the C-2
(General Commercial) District. All conditions of this use appear to be met by the proposal, and
therefore no special use permit is necessary.
Access to the site is from an alley behind the building, which feeds out to Bonneville Avenue
and Garces Avenue. Circulation throughout the site is two-way and at grade through the parking
garage on the first level. The elevations show a modern design with clean, straight lines. The
roofline is varied along the more visible east and west elevations. Materials include title-up
concrete panels painted in earth tone colors, colored tiles and tinted windows. A rooftop garden
space is provided for residents. The Downtown Centennial Plan requires awnings, arcades and
canopies at the ground level of the building unless waived by the City Council as part of a Site
Development Plan Review. A condition of approval was added by staff to provide the required
awnings and canopies on a revised set of elevations. The applicant has indicated that these will
be provided.
Title 19 parking requirements are not automatically applied within the boundaries of the
Downtown Centennial Plan Overlay District, but are subject to conditions imposed by the City
Council if needed. The applicant is providing 19 onsite parking spaces (0.39 space per unit) and
no additional spaces for commercial uses, with the expectation that many commercial patrons
and visitors will use modes of transportation other than automobiles. The site is located within
two blocks of the Bonneville Transit Center. According to the applicant, additional parking
spaces could be provided at an existing parking lot owned and operated by the applicant at 704
South Las Vegas Boulevard. However, an offsite parking agreement would need to be recorded
against this property to ensure an adequate number of parking spaces could be provided for
residents and patrons of the development. Through a condition of approval, staff is imposing a
minimum parking requirement of 50 spaces to be provided, which consists of one space per unit
and two for the office space. This is approximately 38 percent below the normal parking
requirement of 81 spaces.
Full Downtown Centennial Plan streetscape and utilities are required; however, streetscape and
undergrounding not implemented due to existing conditions requires a Covenant Running with
Land agreement for future installation, and no waiver would be required. As the streetscape is
existing and the parcel is located midblock, the applicant does not propose to make any changes.
There are four existing shade trees in grates straddling the existing sidewalk, plus two palm trees.
The normal requirement is one 25-foot tall BTH palm tree at 30-foot intervals in grates. The
site/landscape plan does not accurately depict the existing streetscape; therefore, by condition it
will be required to be corrected on the technical landscape plan.

A mapping action to combine the underlying platted lots must be recorded prior to the issuance
of building permits for vertical construction. It is recommended that the applicant consult the
City Surveyor to determine the appropriate map. It was noted that a reversionary map would not
create any new lots; it would only erase the existing lines on the interior and remove the land
from the existing subdivision. The parcel would still remain substandard with respect to width in
the C-2 (General Commercial) zoning district.
The Las Vegas Valley Water District provided the following comment:
This parcel is not currently served by Las Vegas Valley Water District. The proposed
development will require above ground backflow prevention adjacent to the water main, which is in
4th Street. The facilities cannot be placed within the building or in a room. It is suggested to meet
with the Las Vegas Valley Water District to discuss the site plan. The Office Core standards
specifically require all utility vaults to be located underground, and the site plan as configured does
not allow for an area outside of the building for an above-ground appurtenance. The site plan would
need to be revised to incorporate the appurtenance and a waiver granted for above-ground utilities.

FINDINGS (SDR-62361)
In order to approve a Site Development Plan Review application, per Title 19.16.100(E) the
Planning Commission and/or City Council must affirm the following:
1.

The proposed development is compatible with adjacent development and


development in the area;
The proposed site is a substandard infill parcel in the Office Core District of the
Downtown Centennial Plan. A low-rise building with a single level of parking is
proposed; however, the amount of parking provided is not commensurate with the number
of multi-family residential units proposed (19 spaces proposed for 16 studio, 16, onebedroom and 16 two-bedroom units). As a result, either a larger site, a taller building or
perpetual parking rights offsite are needed. Without benefit of these characteristics, the
site cannot adequately accommodate the proposed development and would create demand
for additional on-street parking that may potentially not be available to patrons and
residents. The development is therefore not compatible with the area.

2.

The proposed development is consistent with the General Plan, this Title, the Design
Standards Manual, the Landscape, Wall and Buffer Standards, and other dulyadopted city plans, policies and standards;
The proposed mixed-use development is consistent with the C (Commercial) General Plan
designation for this site, which allows for mixed commercial and residential uses. The

SS

SDR-62361 [PRJ-61920]
Staff Report Page Seven
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

development is generally in conformance to Downtown Centennial Plan requirements,


with exception of the provision of underground utilities and provision of awnings and
canopies at the ground level, which the applicant intends to provide but does not indicate
on the submitted plans.
3.

Site access and circulation do not negatively impact adjacent roadways or


neighborhood traffic;
Access to the site is provided from the rear alley into a ground level garage. Circulation
and parking inside the garage is two-way and exits back out onto the alley. Given the low
number of parking spaces, traffic in the alley and out to Bonneville Avenue or Garces
Avenue should not be negatively impacted.

4.

Building and landscape materials are appropriate for the area and for the City;
The site will utilize the existing streetscape, and no additional landscape will be provided.
The existing condition is in general conformance with Downtown Centennial Plan
standards and is appropriate for this area. The site/landscape plan does not accurately
show the location, type or number of the existing streetscape plantings; therefore, the
technical landscape plan will need to correct any deficiencies.

5.

Building elevations, design characteristics and other architectural and aesthetic


features are not unsightly, undesirable, or obnoxious in appearance; create an
orderly and aesthetically pleasing environment; and are harmonious and compatible
with development in the area;
The building elevations employ a modern architectural style that incorporates popouts,
color changes and details that are consistent around the building. Balconies and a rooftop
garden provide opportunities for outdoor spaces within the development. Such features are
aesthetic in appearance and compatible with similar low-rise developments in this area of
Downtown.

6.

Appropriate measures are taken to secure and protect the public health, safety and
general welfare.
The proposed development will be subject to building permit review and inspection,
thereby protecting the public health, safety and general welfare.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting to have condition #11 of Tentative Map (TMP-59534) modified or
removed. The condition reads as follows: The proposed terminus Solar Avenue shall be
redesigned to be located completely east of City of Las Vegas jurisdiction unless the developer
provides written proof that Clark County agrees to maintain all the roadway improvements
within the cul-de-sac bulb in conjunction with their usual maintenance of the abutting County
roadways. Appropriate easements to Clark County may be required if so indicated by Clark
County. If this condition is removed, a Variance is requested to allow Solar Avenue, a public
street, to terminate in a non-cul-de-sac. Staff does not support either of these requests as it
would create maintenance issues that neither Clark County nor the City of Las Vegas finds
appealing. If denied, applicant must provide proof in writing that Clark County will maintain the
entire cul-de-sac or the terminus of Solar Avenue must occur completely within Clark County
jurisdiction with appropriate revisions to the previously approved Tentative Map.

ISSUES

The applicant proposed a Tentative Map that required Clark County consent to be
obtained. However, Clark County has not consented to the approved Tentative Map
design; specifically the plan to terminate Solar Avenue. The applicant is proposing a
non-traditional resolution by creating a cul-de-sac for a public street in Clark County to
terminate half-way in the City of Las Vegas on private property. Staff does not support
this proposal.

City Council approved a Rezoning (ZON-57591) from R-E (Residence
Estates) to R-1 (Single Family Residential) on 20.0 acres at the northeast
corner of Elkhorn Road and Hualapai Way. The Planning Commission and
staff recommended approval.
The Planning Commission approved a Tentative Map (TMP-59534),
Variances (VAR-59328 and VAR-59530) and a Vacation (VAC-59533) for a
07/14/15
60-lot residential subdivision on 20.0 acres at the northeast corner of Elkhorn
Road and Hualapai Way. Staff recommended denial.
The Planning Commission voted [6-0] to hold this item in abeyance to the

February 9, 2016 Planning Commission meeting.
Most Recent Change of Ownership
10/07/15
A deed was recorded for a change in ownership.
Related Building Permits/Business Licenses
No permits are on file at this time.
Pre-Application Meeting
Staff met with the applicant and discussed the issue of a street not terminating
in a cul-de-sac. Additionally, a cul-de-sac partially located in the right-ofway and partially located on private property was discussed. Staff advised the
11/23/15
applicant that the best avenue to take to address this issue was to apply for
both a Review of Condition and a Variance. Public Works staff indicated that
this may be supported by staff.
Neighborhood Meeting
A neighborhood meeting was not required, nor was one held.
Field Check

12/03/15

Staff visited the site and took photographs. The site was undeveloped with
desert vegetation throughout. There were two large, red and white barriers up
at the west end of Solar Avenue where the proposed cul-de-sac would be
located. There was an existing single family dwelling on the southeast corner
of Solar Avenue and Eula Street.

ANALYSIS
The applicant is proposing to eliminate condition of approval #11 of Tentative Map (TMP59534), which stated: The proposed terminus of Solar Avenue shall be redesigned to be located
completely east of City of Las Vegas jurisdiction unless the developer provides written proof that
Clark County agrees to maintain all the roadway improvements within the cul-de-sac bulb in
conjunction with their usual maintenance of the abutting County roadways. Appropriate
easements to Clark County may be required if so indicated by Clark County.
The reason for this condition is that per Title 19.04.100, a dead-end street shall end in a cul-desac for turnaround purposes. Since the majority of Solar Avenue is located in Clark County, City
of Las Vegas maintenance vehicles would need to use County streets to access and maintain a
partial cul-de-sac which serves no other purpose than a point of terminus of a County street. The
applicant is requesting that this area be owned and maintained by the Homeowners Association.
Since the City of Las Vegas believes this area will result in a no-mans land that will appear as
a public roadway, the Department of Public Works staff recommends denial of the Review of
Condition. They also note that this Review of Condition (ROC-62359) is associated with
Variance (VAR-62360). Unless this Review of Condition is approved, Public Works cannot
support that land use action.
FINDINGS (ROC-62359)
The subject residential subdivision was originally approved by Tentative Map (TMP-59534)
with a specific condition (#11) to address a non-conforming element of the design. The proposed

YK

ROC-62359 and VAR-62360 [PRJ-62298]


Staff Report Page Five
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

amendment and/or deletion of the condition is not appropriate as conditioned by the Las Vegas
City Councils approval of Tentative Map (TMP-59534) at the August 15, 2015 City Council
meeting. Therefore, staff recommends denial of this request.

FINDINGS (VAR-62360)
In accordance with the provisions of Title 19.16.140(B), Planning Commission and City Council,
in considering the merits of a Variance request, shall not grant a Variance in order to:
1.
2.
3.

Permit a use in a zoning district in which the use is not allowed;


Vary any minimum spacing requirement between uses;
Relieve a hardship which is solely personal, self-created or financial in nature.

Additionally, Title 19.16.140(L) states:


Where by reason of exceptional narrowness, shallowness, or shape of a specific piece of
property at the time of enactment of the regulation, or by reason of exceptional
topographic conditions or other extraordinary and exceptional situation or condition of
the piece of property, the strict application of any zoning regulation would result in
peculiar and exceptional practical difficulties to, or exceptional and undue hardships
upon, the owner of the property, a variance from that strict application may be granted so
as to relieve the difficulties or hardship, if the relief may be granted without substantial
detriment to the public good, without substantial impairment of affected natural resources
and without substantially impairing the intent and purpose of any ordinance or
resolution.
No evidence of a unique or extraordinary circumstance has been presented, in that the applicant
has created a self-imposed hardship by designing a project that does not adhere to either Clark
County or City of Las Vegas design standards. An alternative is to design the project meeting all
conditions that would allow conformance to the Title 19 requirements. In view of the absence of
any hardships imposed by the sites physical characteristics, it is concluded that the applicants
hardship is preferential in nature, and it is thereby outside the realm of NRS Chapter 278 for
granting of Variances.

Related Relevant City Actions by P&D, Fire, Bldg., etc


The City Council approved a request regarding the amending of the
Development Agreement (DIR-42266) for the Kyle Canyon Development on
approximately 1,662 acres at the southwest corner of Fort Apache Road and
11/16/11
Moccasin Road. Planning Commission and staff recommended approval. The
Development Agreement (Doc. #201206260000001) was recorded on
06/26/12.
The City Council approved a Variance (VAR-55892) to allow deviations from
the Street Naming Guidelines and Street Naming Configurations sections of

Regulations, 209 Edition on Horse Drive between Us 95 and Iron Mountain
Road, Fort Apache Road between the US 95 and Moccasin Road, as well and
on Hualapai Way from Grand Teton Drive to Moccasin Road, respectively.
The Planning Commission and Staff recommend approval.
The City Council approved a Street Name Change (SNC-55060) request to

The City Council approved a request regarding the amending of the
Development Agreement (DIR-59826) for the Kyle Canyon Development on
07/15/15
approximately 1,662 acres at the southwest corner of Fort Apache Road and
Moccasin Road. Planning Commission and staff recommended approval.

ANALYSIS
The request is to amend Section 19.19.040 of the approved Skye Canyon Development
Standards and Architectural Guidelines (Exhibit M of the Skye Canyon Development
Agreement) manual. Section 19.19.040 outlines the development standards and design
requirements for the Sky Canyon Blended Use category.
The Blended Land Use District was established to encourage the creation of dynamic
neighborhoods that allow for a mix of residential and non-residential uses on the same site while
emphasizing a strong pedestrian realm, strong connectivity, and public spaces such as plazas and
courtyards.
While the Blended Use category encourages a mix of uses within the same parcel or building, the
mixing of uses is not a requirement. The development standards specifically permit property
owners to develop a site within the Blended Use district with a single land use. The types of uses
that may be developed within the district include those compatible with the C-1 (Limited

FS

MOD-62679 [PRJ-62633]
Staff Report Page Three
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

Commercial), C-2 (General Commercial), P-O (Professional Office), and O (Office) zoning
districts. In addition, any Skye Canyon residential land use is permitted except Kyle R-1, which
is intended for a single family detached product.
The proposed modification to the development standards was requested by the Master Developer
after a review of the existing market conditions in the area. The master developer has indicated
that there is currently a demand for a traditional neighborhood shopping center and supporting
retail within a portion of the Blended Use district. While a shopping center is a permitted use
within the Blended Use district, some of the design standards in the Blended Use section do not
allow the flexibility needed by the Master Developer to develop the parcel to the expected
anchor tenants specifications.
The Master Developer has stated their intent to utilize a portion of the Blended Use district for a
more traditional shopping center; however, they have also stated their willingness to explore
options that promote the intent of the Blended Use district without compromising the traditional
requirements of the expected anchor tenant. For this reason, many of the proposed changes
associated with this modification do not remove specific requirements, but only makes them
optional to provide maximum flexibility.
The table below outlines the proposed changes to Section 19.19.040 of the Skye Canyon
Development Standards:

FINDINGS
The proposed revisions to the Blended Use district allow maximum flexibility for the Master
Developer while still encouraging the core intent of the Blended Use district for future
development. The Master Developer has expressed a willingness to incorporate the principals of
the Blended Use district where feasible, and the majority of the changes proposed with this
modification are intended to provide additional flexibility, not to absolve the Master Developer
from developing within the established guidelines. For these reasons, the proposed modification
to the Blended Use section of the Skye Canyon Development Standards and Architectural
Guidelines is recommended for approval.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting approval of a proposed 20-lot single-family, detached residential
subdivision on 6.08 acres located at the southwest corner of Azure Drive and Torrey Pines Drive
in the Centennial Hills Sector of the General Plan. The parcels are currently undeveloped. This
project includes a request to Rezone the parcels from R-E (Residence Estates) to R-D (Single
Family Residential-Restricted) zoning district; 21 Variances (one to allow an extended internal
street block length and 20 for reduced front and rear yard setbacks on each of the proposed lots);
a Waiver of the 220 feet intersection distance separation requirement; and a Tentative Map.
Staff supports the requests for Rezoning, Waiver, Tentative Map and the Variance (VAR-62756)
for an increase in street block length. However, the 20 Variances for reduced front and rear yard
setbacks for each proposed lot is not supported by staff, as there is no hardship associated with
this site which precludes the placement of smaller homes that comply with the setback
requirements. If denied, the parcels would remain zoned as R-E (Residence Estates) and
undeveloped pending approval of future entitlements.

ISSUES

A Variance is required to allow an internal street to be 874 feet, where 660 feet in length
is the maximum allowed. Staff supports this request.
Twenty (20) Variances are required to allow for 20-foot front and 25-foot rear yard
setbacks for each of the proposed 20 lots, where 25 feet and 30 feet, respectfully, are
required in the R-D (Single Family Residential-Restricted) zoning district. Staff does
not support these requests.
A Waiver is required to allow a 177-foot distance separation between intersections,
where 220 feet is required. Staff supports this request.
The project is located within the 330-foot Rural Preservation Overlay Buffer Area. The
intent of this overlay is to protect rural neighborhoods from more intense residential
development.

Related Relevant City Actions by P&D, Fire, Bldg., etc


The City Council tabled a request for a Site Development Plan Review (SDR3284) and a Variance (VAR-3360) to allow a 27-foot side yard setback where
02/04/04
residential adjacency standards require a minimum setback of 78 feet for a
proposed private school, primary on 2.10 acres adjacent to the south side of
Azure Drive, approximately 285 feet west of Rebecca Road.
The City Council tabled a request to Amend (GPA-12373) a portion of the
Centennial Hills Sector Plan of the Master Plan from DR (Desert Rural
Density Residential to L (Low Density Residential); a Rezoning (ZON12377) from R-E (Residence Estates) to R-1 (Single Family Residential); and
06/22/06
a Special Use Permit (SUP-12376) for a private streets in conjunction with a
proposed single-family residential development on 7.02 acres at the southwest
corner of Torrey Pines Drive and Azure Drive. Staff recommended denial on
all requests.
The Planning Commission held in abeyance at the request of the applicant a
request for a General Plan Amendment (GPA-16538), a Rezoning (ZON10/19/06
16609), a Site Development Plan Review (SDR-16611), and a Waiver (WVR16610) to the 11/02/06 Planning Commission meeting.
The City Council approved requests for a General Plan Amendment (GPA16538) from DR (Desert Rural Density Residential) to R (Rural Density
Residential); a Rezoning (ZON-16609) from R-E (Residence Estates) to RPD3 (Residential Planned Development - 3 Units per Acre) and a Site
Development Plan Review (SDR-16611) for a 21-unit single-family
12/20/06
residential subdivision. A Waiver (WVR-16610) to Title 18.12.160 to allow
approximately 173 feet between street intersections where 220 feet is the
minimum distance separation required was withdrawn without prejudice by
the applicant. Planning Commission recommended approval of GPA-16538,
ZON-16609 and SDR-16611, but recommended denial of WVR-16610. Staff
recommended approval on all requests.
The Planning Commission approved a request for a Variance (VAR-19019) to
allow zero square feet of open space where 15,137 square feet is required for
02/22/07

February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

Pre-Application Meeting
Staff met with the applicant and reviewed the proposed 20-lot residential
subdivision. It was determined that the proposed project would require a
Variance to allow a street to exceed 660 feet in length, a Waiver to allow a
reduced intersection distance separation and a Tentative Map application.
12/22/15
After the meeting, the applicant contacted staff and indicated that a Variance
for each of the 20 proposed lots would also be requested for reduced front and
rear yard setbacks. Staff recommended the applicant hold a voluntary
neighborhood meeting since the project would be more intense than
recommended within the 330 foot Rural Preservation Overlay Buffer Area.
Neighborhood Meeting
This voluntary meeting started at 6:00 p.m. and concluded at 6:50 p.m. One
applicant, ten members of the public and two City staff members attended.
This main issues of concern were the following:
02/01/16

Additional traffic on Torrey Pines Drive;


Additional students for the overcrowded schools;
The long street that will be used for speeding; and
Concern regarding the intersection off-set Waiver since there are two
school bus stop pick-ups between the proposed intersections.

Field Check
12/31/15

Staff visited the site and found an unfenced, vacant lot. The property had
some natural desert plants throughout the site. No issues were noted.

ANALYSIS
The undeveloped, 6.08 acre site is located at the southwest corner of Azure Drive and Torrey
Pines Drive. The applicant is proposing to rezone the site from R-E (Residence Estates) to R-D
(Single Family Residential-Restricted) district. This would still conform to the General Plan
Land Use designation of R (Rural Density Residential) regarding density permitted.
The applicant is currently requesting a Tentative Map for a 20-lot single-family subdivision to
cover the 6.08-acre site. The R (Rural Density Residential) allows the site to accommodate up to
3.59 dwelling units per acre. As proposed, the subject site would have a density of 3.29 dwelling
units per acre, which complies with the maximum density limitations.
The proposed private street where all 20 lots will have frontage takes access from Torrey Pines
Drive. As an 80-foot wide Major Collector, Title 19.04 requires Torrey Pines Drive to be
constructed to Complete Streets Standards. These standards include provisions of a three-foot
amenity zone and a five-foot sidewalk within the right-of-way, with shade trees to be spaced a
maximum of 40 feet on center within the planter area. However, the applicant is proposing to
deviate from these standards by having the sidewalk adjacent to the curb and then a landscape
amenity area. The Public Works Department has approved this deviation in order to match the
existing developed conditions in the area.
Direct access to the residential lots will be provided via a proposed 47-foot wide private street
with five-foot wide sidewalks located on either side of the street. As proposed, the 47-foot wide
private street is to be constructed to Complete Street Standards for a Residential Street (Narrow
Lot) design.
The lot sizes of the development range from 10,052 square feet up to 13,404 square feet.
According to the submitted justification letter, the proposed home models do not adhere to the
minimum setback requirements for the R-D (Single Family Residential-Restricted) zoning
designation as outlined by Title 19.06.
The applicant has requested front and rear yard setback variances for all 20 lots. The
justification provided is that the market demand is for large home floor plans on a single-story
layout. They also indicate that the single-story homes will have a reduced aesthetic impact on
the adjacent rural residential neighborhoods; thereby, providing more privacy. The applicant has

agreed, in writing, to have a condition placed on the Tentative Map that will restrict homes to
single-story construction. This is reflected in condition number four. The floor plans of the
individual model types were not submitted as a part of this review. A detailed review of the floor
plans will occur during the plan check and permitting process.
Public Works Department staff notes that north/south and east/west cross sections are shown
with this Tentative Map submittal, but no stationing or elevations are shown. Per the Tables in
Subdivision Code 19.06.050, a development with natural slopes less than 2% are allowed
maximum four-foot retaining walls. Staff notes that there is one retaining wall shown on the
western border at a maximum of three feet in height and another retaining wall on the southern
border at a maximum height of three feet. Both of these walls are within the guidelines
established by code.

FINDINGS (ZON-62784)
In order to approve a Rezoning application, pursuant to Title 19.16.090(L), the Planning
Commission or City Council must affirm the following:
1.

The proposal conforms to the General Plan.


The proposed Rezoning to R-D (Single Family Residential-Restricted) conforms to the
density range allowed by the existing R (Rural Density Residential) General Plan land use
designation and supports Objective 2.6., that states: to improve the amount and quality
of infill development on vacant and underutilized lands within established areas of the
city.

2.

The uses which would be allowed on the subject property by approving the rezoning
will be compatible with the surrounding land uses and zoning districts.
The detached single-family residential use proposed on the subject property is proposed at
an appropriate density with the surrounding properties and is therefore, compatible with
the density uses and zoning designations of these surrounding properties. The average lot
size for this proposed development is 11,730 square feet.

3.

Growth and development factors in the community indicate the need for or
appropriateness of the rezoning.
From November 2014 to November 2015 there has been an 11.4% increase in the number
of housing permits requested in the City of Las Vegas. The density and size of the lots
proposed for the property to be rezoned will resemble the development pattern of
surrounding properties. The proposed Rezoning is therefore appropriate.

4.

Street or highway facilities providing access to the property are or will be adequate in
size to meet the requirements of the proposed zoning district.
Access to the property is provided off Torrey Pines Drive, identified as an 80-foot
Secondary Collector Street on the Master Plan of Streets and Highways. This right-of-way
is adequate to meet the traffic demands of the proposed single-family residential
development.

FINDINGS (VAR-62756)
In accordance with the provisions of Title 19.16.140(B), Planning Commission and City Council,
in considering the merits of a Variance request, shall not grant a Variance in order to:
1.
2.
3.

Permit a use in a zoning district in which the use is not allowed;


Vary any minimum spacing requirement between uses;
Relieve a hardship which is solely personal, self-created or financial in nature.

Additionally, Title 19.16.140(L) states:


Where by reason of exceptional narrowness, shallowness, or shape of a specific piece of
property at the time of enactment of the regulation, or by reason of exceptional
topographic conditions or other extraordinary and exceptional situation or condition of
the piece of property, the strict application of any zoning regulation would result in
peculiar and exceptional practical difficulties to, or exceptional and undue hardships
upon, the owner of the property, a variance from that strict application may be granted so
as to relieve the difficulties or hardship, if the relief may be granted without substantial
detriment to the public good, without substantial impairment of affected natural resources
and without substantially impairing the intent and purpose of any ordinance or
resolution.
Evidence of a unique or extraordinary circumstance has been presented, in that the applicant has
not created a self-imposed hardship by proposing a street block length greater than 660 feet. An
alternative street design would allow conformance to the Title 19 requirements but be
detrimental to the rural nature of the area. In view of this hardship imposed by the sites physical
location, it is concluded that the applicants hardship is not preferential in nature, and it is
thereby within the realm of NRS Chapter 278 for granting of Variances.

FINDINGS (VAR-62765 through VAR-62783)

as to relieve the difficulties or hardship, if the relief may be granted without substantial
detriment to the public good, without substantial impairment of affected natural resources
and without substantially impairing the intent and purpose of any ordinance or
resolution.
No evidence of a unique or extraordinary circumstance has been presented, in that the applicant
has created a self-imposed hardship by proposing home models that do not fit on their selfcreated lots. An alternative would be to offer homes with a smaller footprint that would allow
conformance to the Title 19 requirements. In view of the absence of any hardships imposed by
the sites physical characteristics, it is concluded that the applicants hardship is preferential in
nature, and it is thereby outside the realm of NRS Chapter 278 for granting of Variances.

FINDINGS (WVR-62786)
Public Works has no immediate concerns with the requested Waiver of intersection offset distance.
Traffic counts at the affected intersections are expected to be low, and the separation distance is
sufficient to minimize traffic conflicts.

FINDINGS (TMP-62787)
The proposed Tentative Map conforms to Nevada Revised Statues. However, the project
requires a Variance and a Waiver from Title 19 Development Standards. Staff supports these
requests. Although staff recommends denial of the 20 setback Variances, the approval or denial
of these Variances will not impact the Tentative Map; therefore, staff recommends approval.

ZON-62700 [PRJ-62527]
Staff Report Page One
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting the rezoning of 1.44 acres of land currently developed with a medical
office building and parking lot from C-D (Designed Commercial) to C-1 (Limited Commercial).
The applicant has immediate plans to combine the parcels at 2316 and 2300 West Charleston
Boulevard as a single property. The vicinity contains several medical offices and laboratories
that are located away from residential areas and is appropriately zoned C-1. The subject parcels
were originally zoned C-D to accommodate a planned parking lot for the adjacent office use;
however, the medical office building was subsequently constructed. The Unified Development
Code (LVMC Title 19) no longer supports the C-D (Designed Commercial) District; rather, the
CD-O (Designed Commercial Overlay District) can be applied to any zoning district to restrict
development. Staff therefore recommends approval of the rezoning request. If denied, the
parcels at 2316 and 2300 West Charleston Boulevard would remain as currently zoned and could
not be combined. Additionally, the applicant could not proceed with faade improvements
proposed for the existing building, as the applicant would be unable to obtain building permits
since the building is currently situated on two separate parcels with two different zoning districts.

ISSUES

The CD-O (Designed Commercial Overlay District) provides standards for limited
commercial uses where it is necessary to preserve the character of surrounding land uses with
less intense commercial development. If this rezoning request is approved, the requirements
of the CD-O will take precedence over the height, setback and lot coverage provisions of the
C-1 (Limited Commercial) District.
The existing building at 2316 West Charleston is nonconforming with respect to height and
setbacks. Rezoning to C-1 would not increase the nonconformance, but would instead allow
the property owner to create a single lot that conforms to C-1 standards.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Related Relevant City Actions by P&D, Fire, Bldg., etc.
The Board of City Commissioners approved a Rezoning (Z-0032-83) from CD (Designed Commercial) to C-1 (Limited Commercial) on 0.66 acres at the
northwest corner of Charleston Boulevard and Rancho Drive. The Planning
05/18/83
Commission and staff recommended approval. A plot plan was included that
showed a 29,350 square-foot, two-story office building aligned to the west
property line.

The City Council approved a Rezoning (Z-0005-86) from R-E (Residence
Estates) and C-D (Designed Commercial) to C-D (Designed Commercial) on
02/19/86
1.44 acres at 2314 and 2316 West Charleston Boulevard. The Planning
Commission and staff recommended approval. The proposal included review
of a plot plan for a proposed parking lot on the two parcels.
The City Council approved a Plot Plan Review (Z-0005-86) for a proposed
31,000 square-foot, two-story medical office with surface and underground
08/06/86
parking area at 2316 West Charleston Boulevard and a portion of 2300 West
Charleston Boulevard. The Planning Commission and staff recommended
approval.

Related Building Permits/Business Licenses


Construction of the medical building at 2300 West Charleston Boulevard was
1984
completed.
Construction of the medical building at 2316 West Charleston Boulevard was
1989
completed.
A building permit (96006558) was issued for a tenant improvement for a
04/03/96
medical office building at 2316 West Charleston Boulevard. A final
inspection was approved 08/30/96.
A building permit (296672) was issued for a tenant improvement for a
08/17/15
medical office remodel at 2316 West Charleston Boulevard. A final
inspection was approved 09/09/15.

Pre-Application Meeting
A pre-application meeting was held with the owners representative in regards
to the proposed faade improvements (SDR-62648) when it was brought to
the attention of staff that a building permit would not be issued for a building
situated on two separate parcels with two different zoning districts. This
12/08/15
would be a housekeeping item that would need to be corrected before the
project could move forward. Staff recommended that the applicant hold a
neighborhood meeting to address area residents concerns prior to the public
hearing.

ANALYSIS
The two subject parcels were originally zoned C-D (Designed Commercial) in 1986 to allow for
additional parking for the existing medical office at the corner of Charleston Boulevard and
Rancho Drive (2300 West Charleston Boulevard). However, in the same year another request
was brought forward for a new medical office that would connect to the existing one, with

SS/NE

ZON-62700 [PRJ-62527]
Staff Report Page Five
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

parking to accommodate both buildings. At the time, the single-story height limitation of the
CD-O (Designed Commercial Overlay District) was not in effect; therefore, the building is
currently nonconforming. The other surrounding parcels on the north side of Charleston
Boulevard all remain C-1 (Limited Commercial) with medical and office-type uses. Any new
construction is still subject to the requirements of the CD-O (Designed Commercial Overlay
District), which limits height to one story or 20 feet, whichever is smaller for parcels fronting
Charleston Boulevard between Rancho Drive and Valley View Boulevard, unless otherwise
approved by the City Council. Rezoning would allow for the same or similar uses that already
exist on the site. As the existing building is already attached to the building at 2300 West
Charleston, rezoning would not create any new nonconformance due to setbacks as long as the
site is then remapped as a single lot that meets C-1 lot standards. Therefore, the requested zone
change to C-1 for these parcels is appropriate.

FINDINGS (ZON-62700)
In order to approve a Rezoning application, pursuant to Title 19.16.090(L), the Planning
Commission or City Council must affirm the following:
1.

The proposal conforms to the General Plan.


The proposed rezoning to C-1 (Limited Commercial) would conform to the existing SC
(Service Commercial) General Plan designation, which allows for low to medium intensity
retail, office and other commercial uses that primarily serve local area residents.

2.

The uses which would be allowed on the subject property by approving the rezoning
will be compatible with the surrounding land uses and zoning districts.
The C-1 (Limited Commercial) District allows for low intensity commercial uses that
would be compatible with the existing medical offices,

3.

Growth and development factors in the community indicate the need for or
appropriateness of the rezoning.
Although located on two properties, the two buildings at 2300 and 2316 West Charleston
Boulevard essentially function as a single entity with a similar medical office use. It is
therefore appropriate that both properties have the same zoning designation. In addition,
the C-D (Designed Commercial) zoning district is no longer supported by Title 19, as
restrictions are placed on development through the Designed Commercial Overlay District.

4.

Street or highway facilities providing access to the property are or will be adequate in
size to meet the requirements of the proposed zoning district.

February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

Primary access to the subject property is provided from Charleston Boulevard, a 100-foot
Primary Arterial as classified by the Master Plan of Streets and Highways. Secondary
access is provided through the adjacent corner parcel to the east from Rancho Drive, also
classified as a Primary Arterial. Both roadways have adequate capacity to accommodate
the proposed C-1 (Limited Commercial) District.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting approval for Special Use Permits for a 4,475 square-foot Pub, Bar, or
Lounge (Tavern) use with a Gaming (Restricted) use at 1916 Village Center Circle, Suite #7.
The proposed uses are located in the VC (Village Center) Summerlin Land Use District on a
portion of a 17.64-acre parcel. Summerlin Development Standards requires a separate Special
Use Permit for each use. The uses are compatible with the adjacent commercial uses; therefore,
staff recommends approval. If these applications are denied, the proposed uses would not be
allowed at this location.

ISSUES

A Pub, Bar, or Lounge (Tavern) use is permitted in the VC (Village Center) Summerlin Land
Use District upon approval of a Special Use Permit. There are no distance separation
requirements for this use.
The Gaming (Restricted) use is permitted in the VC (Village Center) Summerlin Land Use
District upon approval of a Special Use Permit. There are no distance separation
requirements for this use.
Per the Summerlin Development Standards, no waivers are required for distance separation
requirements; however, the proposed use will be adjacent to an existing Pub, Bar, or Lounge
use and is located within 1,500 feet of an existing Summerlin park and religious facility. The
park is approximately 44 feet away and the religious facility is approximately 562 feet away.
Both protected uses are separated by Trail Center Drive and the park is separated by Spring
Gate Lane. These streets are sufficient to buffer the protect uses from the prosed uses.
There is an existing land use entitlement for Beer/Wine/Cooler On-Sale Establishment at this
location that will need to be expunged if a Pub, Bar, or Lounge (Tavern) use is approved.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Related Relevant City Actions by P&D, Fire, Bldg., etc.
The City Council approved a request to Rezone property (Z-0044-87) from NU (Non-Urban) to PC (Planned Community) generally located between Lake
06/03/87

ANALYSIS
In 2015, a Special Use Permit (SUP-57631) was approved for a 4,475 square-foot
Beer/Wine/Cooler On-Sale Establishment at this location. If this request (SUP-62674) is
approved, than SUP-57631 will need to be expunged. A condition of approval has been added to
ensure this occurs. Additionally, SUP-57631 approved consumption of alcohol for the plaza area
to the south of the subject suite; however, the plaza was not included in this application, and, if
approved, alcohol will not be allowed in the plaza area.
The Summerlin Development Standards defines the Pubs, Bars, & Lounges use as, A place
where the sales and service of alcoholic beverages are sold by the drink, where meals are not
required. The proposed use meets this definition and there are no minimum Special Use Permit
requirements listed by the Summerlin Development Standards.
The applicant proposes a 4,475 square-foot Pub, Bar or Lounge establishment with a concurrent
Gaming use located in an existing restaurant at 1916 Village Center Circle, Suite #7. The
proposed development is located within the Village Center (VC) land use district, which allows a
mix of land uses to include commercial and recreational facilities that provide most of the daily
and weekly services and activities for a village or combination of villages. A Pub, Bar or Lounge
use may occur with an approved Special Use Permit in the Village Center land use district of
Summerlin.

February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

Parking is adequately provided for the proposed use. This application does not include a
proposed outdoor patio area. The parking requirement for the previous use (a restaurant) is the
same as for a Pub, Bar or Lounge.
There are no minimum special use permit requirements listed in the Summerlin Development
Standards for the Pubs, Bars, & Lounges use. The proposed establishment would operate much
in the way Title 19.12 Liquor Establishment (Tavern) use in terms of intensity and restrictions.
There are no Waivers required with this proposal, as the Summerlin Development Standards do
not require a minimum distance separation from city parks, schools, child care facilities licensed
for more than 12 children, or houses of worship. However, this proposal is adjacent to a
Summerlin Park, and within 562 of a religious facility. It is important to note that both uses (the
park and religious facility) are separated by rights-of-way (Trails Center Drive or Spring Gate
Lane).
The Gaming (Restricted) use is defined as An establishment which is used or intended to be
used for gaming activities for which a restricted gaming license is required pursuant to Title 6 of
the Las Vegas Municipal Code. For informational purposes, the term refers to an establishment
whose gaming operations are limited to not more than fifteen slot machines, incidental to the
primary business at the establishment, and no other game or gaming device. The proposed use
meets the definition, as the applicant has proposed to operate slot machines in the proposed bar
at this location.
There are no Minimum Special Use Permit Requirements required by the Summerlin
Development Standards for the Gaming (Restricted) use.
Staff recommends approval of both of these requests, as they are consistent with the uses
mentioned in the original Plot Plan Review (SV-0033-96), the Village Center (VC) land use
district, and the Summerlin Development Standards Manual. If denied, the applicant will not be
allowed to operate such uses at the proposed location.

Bob,
Thank you for attending the meeting at the Summerlin Library last night regarding the proposed Bar at 1916 Village
Center Circle, #7 in the Trails Village Center. I would appreciate your conveying my thoughts and opinions on this
establishment on Feb 9 and anyone else you feel should know.
First of all, I feel a better use could be found for the neighborhood. A restaurant with a liquor license, like Jacques, would
be more desirable and family friendly, rather than a Bar & Lounge with food open 24 hrs, 7 days a week. I don't like the
idea of it being open 24/7, which always brings in another element in the morning hours. Also, especially, the safety
factor being it's so close to the Ball Park just behind this building where children and families congregate many evenings
for Ball games. I would hate to see a drunken driver run in to one of them.
Again, I would prefer a restaurant like a Chili's or Applebees environment, that allow people of all ages to eat without
smoking, however, would allow a liquor license, like Jacques.
I am still waiting to hear what the maximum capacity is allowed in this space.
If you have any questions, I may be contacted directly at 371-8658.
Regards,
Judy Cochran
Lapaz Homeowner

Hello,
I have been reading the responses on the nextdoor.com website. I am a renter in the Trails community as well as many of us are. There
are very few homeowners that live around us left. However myself and many of my neighbors rent and have been there for 2 years plus
and plan on being there as long as we can be. I never knew there was a meeting regarding a pub/tavern/bar being put in the
neighborhood many of us never received a notice on the door or in the mail. But many of us do have an opinion. I am in favor of the bar
coming in. Yes that location is a tough location as we have seen people come and go. This may be the thing that will hold its own. Like
the Olive Garden in Centennial Hills, that location had many restaurants go belly up in that location, but the Olive Garden is there and
thriving. I look forward to it as a place my husband and I can walk to or take a quick drive to have a drink get a few minutes of adult time
before we have an evening with the kids.
I think more notices need to go out to the tenants and homeowners to the surrounding communities and one more meeting should be
held to get a true look at if it should be there or not. I think it is a slated vote. Plus if the bar owners are there maybe they can hear what
people want. I know many of us like to go watch sports and play pool. Many would like a place that plays music on certain nights and be
able to sit outside. One person even suggested a karoke night. That location can hold it all. If this bar isnt the one maybe there is one
out there. Just my opinion.

Pros:
It would be a neighborhood spot
Many people like that location and the closeness it holds to our area
Its a walk away from home
Not many people besides the communities will know of the location
Cons:
It is very close to the baseball fields (however Desert Breeze Park is also surrounded by bars)
Potential security issues of drunk people defaming the park
Thank you.

We have lived behind the plaza in the Trails for almost 16 years and fully support the proposed
bar/gaming establishment. There are limited options right nearby for a nice quick meal. As long as
the City of Las Vegas is following the zoning guidelines and CCRs of Summerlin, then we satisfied
with it. While we understand the concerns about it being near the ball fields, if someone is going to
drink and drive, it will not matter where they are coming from and I'm sure if you checked the coolers
of the parents watching their kids play, you'll find beer and/or wine coolers. I'd rather see gaming in
that type of business than in the grocery store which we had when Vons was open. Thank you.

ANALYSIS
The Car Wash, Full Service or Auto Detailing use is defined as An establishment that provides
for the washing, cleaning, waxing or detailing of passenger vehicles, either by means of
employees or by means of automated or semi-automated methods of cleaning, or by a
combination thereof The proposed use meets the definition.
The Minimum Special Use Permit Requirements for this use include:
1. Each wash bay shall have a stacking lane that will accommodate at least six cars.
The proposed use meets this requirement as stacking for seven cars is provided from the
wash bay entrance with additional stacking available before the cashier area.
This project is located within the 105-foot Airport Overlay. Typically when projects fall within
this overlay the Clark County Department of Aviation has included the following statement on
staff reports:
Federal Aviation Regulations (Title 14, Part 77) require that the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) be notified before the construction or alteration of any building or
structure greater than 200 feet in height ( 77.13(a)(1)) or that will exceed a slope of 100:1
for a distance of 20,000 feet from the nearest point of any airport runway greater than 3,200
feet in length ( 77.13 (a)(2)(i)). Such notification allows the FAA to determine what
impact, if any, the proposed development will have upon navigable airspace, and allows the
FAA to determine whether the development requires obstruction marking or lighting.
The proposed development will exceed the 100:1 notice requirement for the North Las Vegas
Airport (VGT). Therefore, as required by 14 CFR Part 77, the FAA must be notified of the
proposed construction or alteration.
A condition of approval has been added to address this issue.
The car wash is designed to allow three lanes of stacking, each with stacking capacity for nine
vehicles, before the cashier barrier arm. Once the fee has been paid, the vehicle moves forward
to one lane, where stacking for six vehicles is provided before entering the actual car wash. The
stacking exceeds the minimum required by code. This excess stacking capacity will make it very
unlikely for traffic to back-up and block any drive aisles or driveways within the commercial
subdivision. The parking provided meets the Title 19 minimum required for a car wash.
Twenty-three additional parking spaces are provided under a canopy to allow for the interior of
vehicles to be vacuumed and wiped down after the initial wash is completed.
The car wash itself is oriented so the entrance and exit bays are facing the adjacent commercial
businesses and not the street or residential neighborhood. This design will minimize any noise
generated from the automated car wash equipment.

Staff Report Page Seven
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

The vacuumed parking spaces and the cashier at the entrance are protected from the elements by
15-foot tall shade canopies constructed of white, composite metal panels. The building has
similar composite metal panels around the parapet and overhangs of the structure. The faade of
the building is covered with large format grey and white porcelain tiles with grey metal lovers
covering the openings. The overall style is of a modern aesthetic.
The applicant is providing a dense landscape perimeter along the Lake Mead Boulevard
perimeter that screens both the drive aisle within the commercial subdivision and the faade of
the single-level building from the right-of-way. This is accomplished by providing a perimeter
landscape buffer that is 30 feet wide when only 15 feet is required by code and planting twice the
number of trees than required within it. At staffs suggestion, the applicant is providing sweet
acacia trees along the south perimeter. The year-round foliage will provide an excellent
landscape screening, in addition to the six-foot block wall, for the residential neighborhood
adjacent on the south. There is also foundation landscape being provided around the building
and between the parking area and the drive aisles.
This project is designed to meet all Title 19 development standards for a commercial project in a
C-1 (Limited Commercial) district. The design also took into account the adjacent residential
neighborhood in both the site plan layout and the landscape materials used.
The Las Vegas Valley Water Department (LVVWD) provided the following comment: This
parcel is currently served by LVVWD. Civil and plumbing plans will need to be submitted to
LVVWD to verify meter sizing and fire flow.
FINDINGS (SUP-62791)
In order to approve a Special Use Permit application, per Title 19.16.110(L) the Planning
Commission and City Council must affirm the following:
1.

The proposed land use can be conducted in a manner that is harmonious and
compatible with existing surrounding land uses, and with future surrounding land
uses as projected by the General Plan.

commercial center that can accommodate a variety of uses including retail sales, medical
and professional offices, personal services, and restaurants. The addition of a Car Wash,
Full Service or Auto Detailing use within this center is compatible with the existing and
future land uses as specified by the SC (Service Commercial) General Plan designation.

2.

The subject site is physically suitable for the type and intensity of land use proposed.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
This is a request for a Site Development Plan Review for a new, 25-foot tall, single-story
building to be constructed on the northwest corner of Lindell Road and Sahara Avenue at 5550
West Sahara Avenue. The subject site is currently a Motor Vehicle Sales (New) dealership, with
the applicant seeking to add additional square footage through the construction of this additional
building in order to display and sell vehicles by Ferrari and Maserati. The applicant has
proposed a building that has met all minimum development standards pursuant to Title 19.08 and
Title 19.12; therefore, staff is recommending approval of this application subject to conditions.

ISSUES

On January 26, 2016 the applicant provided revised plans demonstrating the proposed
building being oriented on the corner of Lindell Road and Sahara Avenue, satisfying the
requirements of Title 19.08(B)(6)(a). The Waiver requested and advertised as part of this
application is therefore no longer required.
A condition of approval has been added requiring a fifth handicapped parking stall to be
added to the subject site.
A condition of approval has been added requiring any and all missing landscaping to be
restored with 30 days of approval of this request.

ANALYSIS
The subject site located at 5550 West Sahara Avenue is within the C-2 (General Commercial)
zoning district and currently operates as a Motor Vehicle Sales (New) dealership. Pursuant to
Title 19.12, Motor Vehicles Sales (New) is defined as a facility or area, other than an auto
sales showroom, for the display and sale or leasing of new automobiles, trucks, motorcycles and
motor scooters, but excluding mopeds. This use includes service bays and auto body shops
which are incidental and accessory to the sales use. Motor Vehicles Sales (New) is a
conditional use in the C-2 (General Commercial) zoning district, subject to the following
Conditional Use Regulations:
1.

Motor Vehicle sales may include an outdoor used car sales lot when operated by a
franchised, new car dealer. The used car sales shall be located directly adjacent to
the new car sales and service facility and be operated as an incidental use.
The applicant has not indicated the desire to include a used car sales lot at this
time.

2.

The installation and use of an outside public address or bell system is prohibited.
No public address or bell system has been proposed.

3.

All exterior lighting shall be screened or otherwise designed so as not to shine


directly onto any adjacent parcel of land.

NE

SDR-62647 [PRJ-62636]
Staff Report Page Eight
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

Existing lighting was installed pursuant to Condition Number 13 of Site


Development Plan Review (SDR-4551), to not exceed 20 feet in height and utilize
shoe-box fixtures and downward directed lights.
4.

All accessory service shall be performed inside an enclosed area.


Accessory service will not be performed in the proposed building.

5.

Accessory automobile rental is permitted.


The subject site is not currently licensed for automobile leasing, and the applicant
has not indicated the desire to do so at this time.

6.

Any motor vehicle sales use to be located north of Cheyenne Avenue must be
located on a parcel with GC-TC land use designation.
This condition is not applicable, as the proposed site is south of Cheyenne
Avenue.

The applicant has proposed to construct a 10,304 square-foot building on the northwest corner of
Lindell Road and Sahara Avenue in addition to the existing 43,122 square-foot Motor Vehicle
Sales (New) dealership building. The proposed building will allow for the applicant to offer
vehicles by Ferrari and Maserati in addition to the current vehicle inventory being sold on-site.
The building elevations have been designed to not only complement the existing building on-site,
but also to complement the luxury vehicles to be sold from within. The majority of the building
elevations are windows, with the use of aluminum and metals to accentuate the glass front.
The floor plan demonstrates a typical new car sales showroom with room for the display of
vehicles and sales offices. Separate mens and womens restroom have been provided for in
addition to a waiting area with breakroom and a vehicle delivery area.
The construction of the proposed building does not displace any existing landscaping on the
subject site, but instead displaces excess parking spaces on the subject site. The applicant has
proposed to add additional landscaping along the eastern side of the proposed building, with
some additional landscaping being added on the southern and northern sides. A condition has
been added to ensure the subject site is in compliance with the original landscape requirements
as approved by Site Development Plan Review (SDR-4551) in addition to the additional
landscaping proposed here.

The addition of the 10,304 square-foot building to the existing site has increased the number of
parking stalls required from 87 to 102 pursuant to Title 19.12 parking standard for a Motor
Vehicle Sales (New) establishment. This also increased the amount of handicapped parking
stalls required from four to five. A condition of approval has been added requiring the fifth
handicapped parking stall to be added to the subject site.
This parcel is currently served by LVVWD with a domestic meter and single fire service
connection. Civil and plumbing plans will need to be submitted to LVVWD for domestic meter
sizing and fire flow. The existing backflow prevention assembly on the fire line will not support
an antifreeze fire sprinkler system, so if such a system is to be required, the backflow prevention
assembly will need to be replaced with a RPDA.
The proposed building has met all applicable development standards pursuant to Title 19.08 and
Title 19.12; therefore, staff is recommending approval of this application subject to conditions.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is proposing a Master Sign Plan for the Historic Westside School located at 330
350 West Washington Avenue. The Master Sign Plan proposed includes one monument sign,
one way finding sign, multiple tenant wall signs, multiple tenant hanging blade (projecting)
signs, and multiple incidental signs such as building identifiers (suite numbers) and dedication
plaques.
Planning staff has reviewed the MSP for compliance with the city of Las Vegas Unified
Development Code (UDC) Chapter 19.10.020 Section H. Signage, which states that standards for
signage within the C-V District shall be the same as those indicated in UDC 19.08.120 for the P-O
District with certain additional standards, and has determined that the Master Sign Plan meets all
requirements contained therein with the following exception:

Per Title 19.10(H)(3), the Multiple hanging Blade Signs are not specifically indicated for
the P-O (Professional Office) zoning district, and are subject to the review and approval of
the Planning Commission as part of this Master Sign Application.

Therefore, this Master Sign Plan application has been forwarded to the Planning Commission with
the recommendation of approval from the Historic Preservation Commission and staff. If denied,
the Historic Westside School would not be able to install the proposed signage.
ISSUES

As part of the requested Master Sign Plan, the applicant is proposing to install Blade Signs
as part of the proposed signage package to be installed on the West Washington Avenue
(south) and D Street (west) facades. Blade Signs, or Projecting Signs are not specifically
indicated for the P-O (Professional Office) zoning district, and are subject to the review and
approval of the Planning Commission as part of this Master Sign Application, per Title
19.10(H)(3).

ANALYSIS
The City of Las Vegas is requesting approval of an application for a Master Sign Plan for the
Historic Westside School property.
A Master Sign Plan (MSP) is required for certain types of development in order to allow the
Planning Commission and City Council to ensure the appropriate relationships among building
elevations, signage and circulation. MSPs encourage integrated signage, with an emphasis on
wall signs and central identification signage rather than multiple freestanding signs along the
street frontage in order to reduce clutter. A Master Sign Plan is required for the Historic
Westside School because of the possibilities for multiple tenants, and to allow for tenants to
identify themselves along West Washington Avenue and D Street.
The current application includes the following (numbers correspond with submitted sheet
ASK-045):
One monument sign (1,4): This double-sided sign with removable tenant signs is located
on the south side of the property facing Washington Avenue. It is 9 wide by 94 tall and
constructed of painted metal. The sign face is internally lit with LED lighting, illuminating
the tenants of the Historic Westside School.
Multiple dedication plaques (2,6): These bronze plaques are located near the entrances to
the buildings noting dignitaries and supporters of the Historic Westside School.
Multiple suite number signs (3,8): One fixed sign 12 wide by 6 tall will be installed for
each suite near the suite entrances in both buildings. The signs are constructed of brass
with raised lettering.
Multiple tenant wall signs (3,8): One removable sign 2 wide by 8 tall will be installed
near each suite entrance at both buildings. The signs are constructed of brass with raised
lettering.

CM

MSP-63173
Staff Report Page Six
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

One way-finding sign (7): This sign will be located at the exterior northwest corner of the
1923 building. The sign is 73 tall and 58 wide, constructed of painted metal with
removable tenant signs on the north side only, and is externally lit from a ground mounted
light.
Multiple hanging blade signs (10): One removable blade sign per tenant will be installed on
the W. Washington Avenue (south) and D Street (west) facades. The signs are 2 wide by
3 tall and will be constructed of a durable, non-flexible metal material that can be replaced
as needed. The metal material can be screen printed for each tenant as needed. The signs
are attached to the eave at the top with eye hooks and cables, and affixed to the wall with a
horizontal post and steel anchors at the bottom.

FINDINGS
The Historic Preservation Officer has reviewed the application for compliance with the city of Las
Vegas Unified Development Code, Chapter 19.10.150 Section K. Guidelines, Standards and
Process for Review of Alteration and New Construction, and has found the MSP to be compatible
with the recognized distinctive character of the historic building.
The Historic Preservation Commission reviewed the proposed Master Sign Plan on January 27,
2016 and supports the Historic Preservation Officers findings of compatibility. The Historic
Preservation Officer and Commission will continue to work with the State Historic Preservation
Office and sign manufacturer to determine the least destructive methods of attachment for all wall
and projecting signs and the most appropriate hardware and materials for all signage proposed.
Planning staff has reviewed the MSP for compliance with the city of Las Vegas Unified
Development Code (UDC) Chapter 19.10.020 Section H. Signage, which states that standards for
signage within the C-V District shall be the same as those indicated in UDC 19.08.120 for the P-O
District with certain additional standards, and has determined that the Master Sign Plan meets all
requirements contained therein with the following exception:

Per Title 19.10(H)(3), the Multiple hanging Blade Signs are not specifically indicated for
the P-O (Professional Office) zoning district, and are subject to the review and approval of
the Planning Commission as part of this Master Sign Application.

Therefore, this Master Sign Plan application has been forwarded to the Planning Commission with
the recommendation of approval from the Historic Preservation Commission and staff.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting to vacate right-of-way at the northeast corner of Colorado Avenue
and 3rd Street in order to assemble the portion of right-of-way with its parcel to the north (APN
162-03-110-011) for future development.
Currently, the City of Las Vegas is proposing a series of pocket parks in the downtown area at
locations yet to be determined. The area requested for vacation is part of a master plan concept
that is being developed through the Strong Cities, Strong Communities competition. The City
feels the location of the proposed vacation would make an ideal pocket park and therefore, staff
recommends denial of this Petition of Vacation. If approved, the city will lose the opportunity to
create green space in The 18b Las Vegas Arts District, and the applicant will be able to
assemble the subject site with the parcel to the north for possible future development.

ISSUES

The City of Las Vegas wishes to maintain ownership of the subject site for a possible pocket
park as proposed through the Strong Cities, Strong Communities competition.

ANALYSIS
In 2003 the applicant was granted land entitlements that included a Vacation of the subject site in
order to develop a mixed-use development that consisted of 89 residential units and 3,257 square
feet of commercial space. When the housing market took a downturn, the applicant applied for
and was granted an Extension of Time on the Rezoning (EOT-12742), the Vacation (EOT20174), and the Site Development Plan Review (EOT-22091); but when the market did not show
any signs of improving, the projects entitlements were allowed to expire. The applicant is now
requesting to vacate the same right-of-way at the northeast corner of Colorado Street and 3rd
Street in order to assemble the portion of right-of-way with its parcel to the north (APN 162-03110-011) for possible future development.
In February of 2014, the city of Las Vegas and the U.S. Department of Commerces Economic
Development Administration (EDA) kicked-off the Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2)
Challenge. The goal was to procure highly innovative, creative, and transformational economic
development ideas for Las Vegas from qualified multidisciplinary teams in Nevada and
throughout the world. On June 17, 2015 the winners were announced, including the team of
Strain/Stalk, who was awarded the second place prize of $100,000 for their Master Plan
Concept of the Downtown Area which included significant green and open space, as well as
educational facilities for the downtown area. The city is currently incorporating this concept into
the Citys Downtown Master Plan and intends to maintain ownership of any land owned in order
to develop and implement the Downtown Master Plan which includes a green space corridor.
The subject site is located within the The 18b Las Vegas Arts District, and provides the city the
opportunity to create green space within the The 18b Las Vegas Arts District.
The City of Las Vegas Department of Public Works presents the following information
concerning this request to vacate certain public street ROW:
a.

Does this vacation request result in uniform or non-uniform right-of-way widths?


The required survey and subsequent exhibit will determine the limits of the proposed
vacation and rights-of-way. We anticipate the right-of-way widths to be uniform.

b.

From a traffic handling viewpoint will this vacation request result in a reduced traffic
handling capability?
No, since this area of right-of-way is not currently being used for roadway purposes.

c.

Does it appear that the vacation request involves only excess right-of-way?
It involves right-of-way which was obtained by condemnation years ago for Regional
Transportation Commission (RTC) purposes.

NE

Staff Report Page Five
February 9, 2016 - Planning Commission Meeting

d.

Does this vacation request coincide with development plans of the adjacent parcels?
The owner of the adjacent property stated he would like to revise a previously approved
project, SDR-6217.

e.

Does this vacation request eliminate public street access to any abutting parcel?
No.

f.

Does this vacation request result in a conflict with any existing City requirements?
No.

g.

Does the Department of Public Works have an objection to this vacation request?
Yes, we would like to reserve this location for a possible future pocket park.

FINDINGS
The City of Las Vegas is proposing a series of pocket parks in the downtown area at locations
yet to be determined. The area requested for vacation is part of a master plan concept that is
being developed through the Strong Cities, Strong Communities competition. The City feels the
location of the proposed vacation would make an ideal pocket park and therefore, the staff
recommends denial of this Petition of Vacation.

**PROPOSED AMENDMENTS**
1.

Title 19.16.060.A Purpose of Provisions is hereby amended by amending the following:


The provisions of this Section set forth the administrative and procedural requirements
for the subdivision of land by a final map. The final map process requires review and
action by the Director, the Director of Public Works, and, in some cases, the Planning
Commission. In addition, the provisions of Subsection (H) of this Section relative to
traffic and drainage studies are applicable to non-subdivision development as well.

2.

Title 19.16.060.H Traffic Studies or Drainage Studies Submission and Approval


Required is hereby amended by amending the following:
1. [For any subdivision concerning which traffic studies or drainage studies have been
required in connection with zoning or other development approval, those studies must
have been] Except as otherwise provided in Paragraphs (2) through (4) below, traffic
studies or drainage studies that have been required in connection with zoning or other
development approval regarding a subdivision must be submitted and approved
before the subdivider submits improvement plans pursuant to this Section. The
Department of Public Works may require the traffic and drainage studies be
submitted in an electronic format. The improvement plans must take into account and
be based upon those approved studies.
2. Notwithstanding the requirements of Paragraph (1) above, the Director of Public
Works or designee may authorize the submittal of improvement plans prior to the
final approval of a traffic study or drainage study for the site if the subdivider
demonstrates to the satisfaction of the Director of Public Works or designee that such
a submittal is warranted. Such an early submittal (hereafter at-risk submittal) is
entirely at the risk of the subdivider and is subject to the limitations and conditions set
forth in Paragraphs (3) and (4) below.
3. The real property that is the subject of an at-risk submittal:

a. Must not be located within the HS-O (Hillside Development Overlay) District
or within a Special Flood Hazard Area;
b. Must not exceed twenty gross acres.
c. Must have received tentative map approval or site development plan approval,
if required by this Title.
4. With respect to any at-risk submittal, the subdivider must submit to the Director of
Public Works or designee a signed and notarized written statement acknowledging
that the subdivider:
a. Is solely responsible for any costs associated with design changes that occur
during the plan review as a result of the drainage study or traffic study
approval.
b. Is solely responsible for any costs associated with additional plan check fees
that accrue as a result of the drainage study or traffic study approval.
c. Understands and agrees that a permit will not be issued until all conditions of
the drainage study and traffic study are met and all permit fees paid.
d. Is subject to additional plan check fees for each review beyond the initial
submittal if such submittals are the result of design changes needed in order to
conform to the approved traffic study or drainage study. Such fees are
assessable at one hundred sixty dollars per hour for each City department that
is required or requested to review the plans.
5. The provisions of this Subsection (H) shall also apply to non-subdivision development
and development approvals. In such cases, references to subdivision and
subdivider shall include non-subdivision development and developer,

PROJECT SUMMARY
This is a request to amend LVMC Title 19.16.060 regarding the applicability and requirements
for submission and approval of drainage and traffic studies. The intent of the amendment is to
allow, under certain circumstances, the early submittal of improvement plans in relation to the
final approval of required traffic or drainage studies.

FINDINGS
The proposed text amendment will achieve the following:

Clarify that the provisions regarding the submittal and approval of drainage and traffic
studies are applicable to non-subdivision development as well.
Allow the submittal of improvement plans, under certain circumstances, prior to final
approval of drainage and/or traffic studies. This will allow the studies and plans to be
reviewed concurrently, thereby reducing the overall time of review for a project
significantly.
