ANALYSIS
The proposed development site is part of Summerlin West, which is governed by a Development
Agreement between the Master Developer and the City of Las Vegas, as well as the Summerlin
Development Standards. The proposed tentative map was reviewed and conditionally approved
by the Summerlin Design Review Committee on 10/22/14 prior to submittal to the City for
review.
The Summerlin Development Standards designate the subject property as SF3 (Single Family
Detached), which allows up to 10 residential units per gross acre. The proposed net density of
2.5 dwelling units per acre falls well within the maximum allowed. As this site is part of a
master plan with its own improvement standards, it is not subject to Title 19.04 street section
requirements. Although it is not subject to Title 19 connectivity requirements, this subdivision
scores below the preferred 1.3 link-to-node ratio.
The proposed lots range in size from 8,870 square feet to 27,500 square feet. Site access is
proposed from Fox Hill Drive by way of a 79-foot private street that will serve this site, as well
as Parcel W to the south. Interior circulation is provided by 39-foot wide private streets that
have roll curbs, but no sidewalks. No required trails are adjacent to the site. No neighborhood
parks are proposed. However, seven common lots totaling 65,539 square feet (5.1%) of open
space is provided within the project.
The Clark County School District projects that approximately 34 primary and secondary school
students will be generated by the proposed development on this site. Of the three schools
serving the area (Piggott Elementary School, Johnson Middle School and Palo Verde High
School), the District notes that only Palo Verde was over capacity for the 2014-15 school year,
and no additional schools are planned.
The submitted east/west cross section show a maximum natural grade greater than 2% across this
site It appears that the east property line shows a total retaining wall height of 11-feet (with
tiered walls) and the west property line shows a maximum 8-foot retaining wall (with tiered
walls).
The submitted north/south cross section show a maximum natural grade less than 2% across this
site. Per the Summerlin Development Standards, all development is allowed a maximum
exposure of 10 feet. It appears that the north property line shows a maximum 3-foot retaining
wall and the south property line shows no retaining. All proposed walls are in conformance with
Summerlin Development Standards.

RE:
Justification Letter for a Tentative Map for Toll Brothers Los Altos (32.89 gross acres;

78 lots)

Slater Hanifan Group, on behalf of the applicant, Toll Brothers, respectfully submits this justification

letter in support of a Tentative Map (TM) for the subject site.

The subject site located at the southeast corner of Skye Vista Drive and Far Hills Ave. The

Assessors Parcel Number is 137-27-312-001. The parcel is approximately 32.89 gross acres.

The Tentative M ap identifies a 78 lot single fam ily detached subdivision on 30.78 net acres, which

results in a density of 2.5 (du/ac). There will be two lot sizes within the proposed developm ent with

minimum dimensions of 70x120 for the smaller lots and 80x130 for the larger lots.

The Tentative Map has been approved by the Summerlin Design Review Committee and conforms

to the Summerlin Improvement Standards. Please refer to the enclosed approval letter.

The Las Vegas Valley Water District has existing facilities adjacent to the site which have capacity to

serve the proposed development. The City of Las Vegas has sewer facilities in the area with

available capacity to serve the proposed development.

Thank you for considering these application requests. Please contact m e at (702) 284-5300 if you

have any questions regarding these applications.

Sincerely,

Slater Hanifan Group, Inc.

RE:
SDRC Tentative Map Conditional ApprovalLos Altos (Toll Brothers), Parcel Y, Summerlin Village

23B, The Paseos

Dear Mr. Stone,

The Summerlin Design Review Committee (SDRC) has approved your revised Tentative Map submittal with

the following conditions and comments.

1) The sawtooth edge along the common lot between Parcel Y and Parcel Z does not match the

current parcel lines. Any adjustment to the property line must be coordinated with the owner of

Parcel Z. Additionally, all retaining along the parcel boundary must be coordinated with Parcel Z for

grade transitions that comply with the design criteria.

2) The revised rear yard grading along lots 5155 is much better. Please extend this same grading

concept to the rear of lots 56, 57, 50 and 49 to provide visual continuity. The grading along the rear

of these lots could also eliminate the midheight 4 retaining wall since the pad differences are less

than 24 in height.

3) Additionally, incorporate the same grading concept into the rear yard grading for Lots 7072 for the

reasons stated above. Again, this will add a consistent look to the hillside grading within the

development.

4) The Common Area along the east edge of Lot 45 could be widened to eliminate the retaining walls

and provide a more open Common Area. It is suggested that the property line at the southeast

corner of the lot be projected out to intersect the street at a constant width with scarp grading down

to the Common Element.

Please contact us if you need clarification or have questions.

Regards,

Betty Shevorski

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is proposing to map the approved commercial development located approximately
600 feet west of the northwest corner of Cheyenne Avenue and Durango Drive. Currently the
site consists of two commercial buildings with one owner on a single parcel. Mapping the site as
a commercial subdivision will give the owner/applicant the flexibility to sell off portions of the
site and delineate ownership through future records of survey. Cross access is provided to and
from Cheyenne Avenue and shared parking throughout the site is part of this map. Staff
recommends approval with conditions.

ISSUES
x

A commercial subdivision will allow the owner the flexibility to sell portions of the land
to multiple owners. A single lot subdivision accomplishes the desired flexibility.

ANALYSIS
The mapping of this site as a one-lot commercial subdivision will allow for future records of
survey to be drawn delineating ownership of portions of the site. Parking and access is intended
to be allowed across the site, regardless of these future boundaries. The map notes that common
perpetual access and shared parking will be granted across the entire proposed commercial
subdivision. A Condition of approval has been added to ensure this information will be on the
Final Map for this site.
Public Works noted:
This property and all surrounding property have been developed or graded and no retaining
walls are shown or anticipated. As such, this map is for the purpose of creating a one lot
commercial subdivision and site improvements already exist, no improvements or bonds are
required prior to the recordation of a Final Map. However, improvements and bonds may be
required upon further development of this site.

ANALYSIS
The proposed tentative map correlates to the 322-lot single-family residential subdivision that
was approved by Site Development Plan Review (SDR-57012). The tentative map depicts lots
ranging in size from 3,198 square feet up to 11,158 square feet with an overall density of
approximately 5.65 dwelling units per acre.

Staff Report Page Five
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

The water pump house has been relocated to the west side of Eagle Nest Peak Street. As a result,
the lot lines for parcels on the east side of Eagle Nest Peak Street between Strange Avenue and
Marathon Bell Lane have been adjusted.
Two new common lots have been created with the proposed revision. The first is common lot
P. It is a 6,403 square-foot landscaped buffer located along the east perimeter between Eagle
Nest Peak Street and Marathon Bell Lane. The second is common lot BB, a 41,090 squarefoot open space parcel with a meandering pathway. This lot was created by removing an
east/west street that wasnt serving any parcels located between Silver Hot Springs Street and
James Clark Creek Street.
Cross sections show a 322-lot project that does not exceed more than 8% grade. Since this site is
within the Lone Mountain West area, the codes within the plan govern retaining wall heights. The
submitted east/west cross sections depict maximum natural grade between 6% and 8% across this
site. Per section 3.6 of the Lone Mountain West plan, all development is allowed a maximum 3foot retaining wall. A 3-foot retaining wall is proposed along the west side.
The submitted north/south cross section depicts maximum natural grade between 0% and 2% across
this site. Per section 3.6 of the Lone Mountain West plan, all development is allowed a maximum
3.5-foot retaining wall. A 3-foot retaining wall is proposed along the west side. There are several
3-foot retaining walls proposed throughout the north/south cross sections.
There is a Multi-Transportation Trail planned adjacent to the west side of the project. This
required Multi-Use Transportation Trail shall be developed to the specifications detailed in the
Transportation Trails Element of the Las Vegas 2020 Master Plan.
These revisions do not affect the overall density of the project or the general scope of the
development from that which was previously approved. The street layout, access and number of
residential units remain the same. As a result, staff recommends approval of the request.

FINDINGS (TMP-57011)
The proposed Tentative Map conforms to Nevada Revised Statues, and Title 19 and Site
Development Plan Review (SDR-57012); therefore, staff recommends approval with conditions.

RE:

Justification letter for Peaceful Ridge Residential Subdivision

Revised Tentative Map

Minor Site Development Plan Review

To Whom It May Concern:

Taney Engineering, on behalf of the applicant, THM Enterprise, respectfully submits this

justification letter in support of a Revised Tentative Map and Minor Site Development Plan

Review (SDR) on the subject site. The subject site is generally located south of Lone Mountain

Road and east of the Puli alignment. The site is approximately 55.0 gross acres and 322

residential homes are proposed for the development.

We are requesting approval of a revised tentative map and minor SDR for the project that

includes the following modifications from the previously approved tentative map (TMP-48840)

and site development plan review (SDR-47610).

The water pump house lot was previously located on the north side of Stange Avenue

and the east side of Eagle Nest Peak. It has been relocated to the west side of Eagle

Nest Peak at the end of Stange Avenue. Residential lots have been located on the east

side of Eagle Nest Peak to replace the pump house. The proposed water pump house is

shown as Common Lot S on the provided plans.

Per the request of the drainage department during the drainage study review common

lots have been added for the public drainage easements on the back side of residential

lots.

Lavander Glass Lane has been removed since no homes accessed it and it is not

needed for circulation.

If you have any questions or need any additional information please do not hesitate to contact

this office.

Sincerely,

Rob Hansen, PE, CFM

ANALYSIS
The applicant is requesting a Special Use Permit for a Retail Establishment with Accessory
Package Liquor use within an existing 3,600 square-foot general retail store at 861 North Nellis
Boulevard, Suite #2. The Retail Establishment with Accessory Package Liquor Off-Sale use is
defined as a retail establishment:

MR

SUP-55880
Staff Report Page Five
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

1. Whose license to sell alcoholic beverages authorizes their sale to consumers only and
not for resale, in original sealed or corked containers, for consumption off the premises
where the same are sold; and
2. In which the sale of alcoholic beverages is ancillary to the retail use, and in which no
more than 10 percent of the retail floor space is regularly devoted to the display or
merchandising of alcoholic beverages.
This use includes an establishment that provides on-premises wine, cordial and liqueur tasting if
the licensee also holds a wine, cordial and liqueur tasting license for that location.
The proposed use meets the definition above. Per the provided floor plan and justification letter
the applicant intends to sell alcoholic beverages in conjunction with an existing retail
establishment. Furthermore, the applicant has indicated 143 square feet of the existing 2,505
square feet of retail floor area will be utilized for packaged liquor, which represents less than one
percent of the total floor area.
1. Except as otherwise provided, no retail establishment with accessory package liquor off-sale
(hereinafter establishment) shall be located within 400 feet of any church/house of worship,
school, individual care center licensed for more than 12 children, or City park.
The proposed use meets this requirement, as there are no protected uses within 400 feet of the
subject property.
* 2. Except as otherwise provided in Requirement 3 below, the distances referred to in
Requirement 1 shall be determined with reference to the shortest distance between two property
lines, one being the property line of the proposed establishment which is closest to the existing
use to which the measurement pertains, and the other being the property line of that existing use
which is closest to the proposed establishment. The distance shall be measured in a straight line
without regard to intervening obstacles. For purposes of measurement, the term property line
refers to property lines of fee interest parcels and does not include the property line of:
a. Any leasehold parcel; or
b. Any parcel which lacks access to a public street or has no area for on site parking and
which has been created so as to avoid the distance limitation described in Requirement 1.
The proposed use meets this requirement; measurement is taken from the existing property line
of Lot 1 Plat Book 75 Page 1, located at the northwest corner of Broken Sound Drive and Nellis
Boulevard.

MR

SUP-55880
Staff Report Page Six
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

* 3. In the case of an establishment proposed to be located on a parcel of at least 80 acres in size,


the minimum distances referred to in Requirement 1 shall be measured in a straight line:
a. From the nearest property line of the existing use to the nearest portion of the structure
in which the establishment will be located, without regard to intervening obstacles; or
b. In the case of a proposed establishment which will be located within a shopping center
or other multiple tenant structure, from the nearest property line of the existing use to the
nearest property line of a leasehold or occupancy parcel in which the establishment will
be located, without regard to intervening obstacles.
This requirement does not apply to the proposed use, as the parcel on which it is proposed is less
than 80 acres in size.
4. When considering a Special Use Permit application for an establishment which also requires a
waiver of the distance limitation in Requirement 1, the Planning Commission shall take into
consideration the distance policy and shall, as part of its recommendation to the City Council,
state whether the distance requirement should be waived and the reasons in support of the
decision.
This requirement does not apply to the proposed use, as no distance separation waiver is
necessary.
5. The minimum distance requirements in Requirement 1 do not apply to:
a. An establishment which has a nonrestricted gaming license in connection with a hotel
having 200 or more guest rooms on or before July 1, 1992 or in connection with a resort
hotel having in excess of 200 guest rooms after July 1, 1992; or
b. A proposed establishment having more than 50,000 square feet of retail floor space.
Neither condition applies to the proposed use.
* 6. All businesses which sell alcoholic beverages shall conform to the provisions of LVMC
Chapter 6.50.
The proposed use will meet this requirement, as a condition of approval requires the
conformance to Chapter 6.50 of the City of Las Vegas Municipal Code.
7. The minimum distance requirements set forth in Requirement 1, which are otherwise
nonwaivable under the provisions of LVMC 19.12.050(C), may be waived:

MR

SUP-55880
Staff Report Page Seven
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

a. In accordance with the provisions of LVMC 19.12.050(C) for any establishment which
is proposed to be located on a parcel within the Downtown Casino Overlay District;
b. In accordance with the applicable provisions of the Town Center Development
Standards Manual for any establishment which is proposed to be located within the T C
(Town Center) Zoning District and which is designated MS TC (Main Street Mixed Use)
in the Town Center Land Use Plan;
c. In connection with a proposed establishment having between 20,000 square feet and
50,000 square feet of retail floor space; or
d. In connection with a retail establishment having less than 20,000 square feet of retail
floor space, if the area to be used for the sale, display or merchandising of alcoholic
beverages and each use to be protected are separated by a highway or a right of way with
a width of at least 100 feet.
This requirement does not apply to the proposed use, as the use meets Requirement 1 outlined
above.
The proposed Retail Establishment with Accessory Package Liquor Off-Sale use would be
located within an established commercial center with other retail and office uses. The site is
parking impaired as detailed in Title 19.18.030(D). The prior and proposed use is a General
Retail Store, Other Than Listed. The existing commercial center provides cross-access and
shared parking throughout the entire retail center. No additional parking is required for the
proposed use, as the parking requirements were addressed during the original development of the
site.
The subject site is located within 500 feet of a city boundary; therefore, the request is deemed a
Project of Regional Significance. The required documents have been completed and distributed
to the appropriate agency. No comments were returned.
There are no protected uses within 400 feet of the subject property and the proposed use adheres
to all Minimum Special Use Requirements as outlined in Title 19.12. As such, the use is
compatible with the surrounding land uses and staff recommends approval with conditions.
FINDINGS (SUP-55880)
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

or compromise the public health, safety, and welfare or the overall objectives of the
General Plan.

Liquor Off-Sale use will not compromise the public health, safety, or general welfare as
the use would be subject to regular inspections and licensing requirements.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting a Special Use Permit to add an Automobile Rental use to the existing
Auto Repair Garage, Minor at 4141 North Rancho Drive. The Automobile Rental use will
operate at a counter within the existing establishment, and would be accessory to the minor auto
repair use. Five parking spaces located at the southwest corner of the property would be
dedicated for the rental vehicles. Because the site is parking impaired, a Variance is required for
an additional five parking spaces generated by the Automobile Rental use. The parcel is part of a
commercial subdivision and shares access with the adjacent shopping center, but does not share
parking facilities with that development. The primary use will remain an Auto Repair Garage,
Minor. Due to these unusual circumstances, staff recommends approval of the Variance request,
with conditions. The site meets all minimum requirements for the Automobile Rental use and
can be operated compatibly with the surrounding land uses; therefore, staff recommends
approval of the Special Use Permit, subject to conditions. If denied, the Auto Repair Garage,
Minor use would continue, but no vehicles could be rented from the site.

ISSUES

The Automobile Rental use is permitted in the C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district
with approval of a Special Use Permit.
The site is parking impaired. An additional five parking spaces are needed to accommodate
the rental use; therefore, a Variance is requested to allow no additional spaces to be provided
where five additional spaces are required.

ANALYSIS
The Automobile Rental use is defined by Title 19.18 as a facility for the rental of new or used
automobiles or other passenger vehicles. For purposes of the limitations of this Title on outside
storage, vehicles kept on a lot for rental purposes are not considered to be outside storage. The
proposed use meets this definition, as the primary use of the property is an Auto Repair Garage,
Minor with the addition of vehicle rentals to support the primary use. Rentals would be
administered from a counter on the northeast side of the building interior.
The Minimum Special Use Permit Requirements for this use include:

SS

VAR-56830 and SUP-56829


Staff Report Page Five
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

1. No more than five rental vehicles shall be stored on the site at any one time.
The proposed use meets this requirement, as the applicant has dedicated five parking
spaces for storage of rental vehicles.
2. No vehicles shall be offered for sale on the premises.
The proposed use meets this requirement, as all vehicles are to either be serviced or
rented.
3. The installation and use of an outside public address or bell system is prohibited.
The proposed use meets this requirement, as there is no existing outside public address
system or bell system on the premises, nor is one proposed.
4. No used or discarded automotive parts or equipment shall be located or stored in any
open area outside of the enclosed building.
The proposed use meets this requirement, as all parts and equipment are stored within
the enclosed building.
5. All exterior lighting shall be screened or otherwise designed so as not to shine directly
onto any adjacent parcel of land.
The proposed use meets this requirement, as the existing lighting does not shine directly
onto any adjacent parcels, and no additional outdoor lights are proposed.
6. Service bays for repairs, installations, cleaning or gas dispensing services facing a public
street or a residential zoning district shall be screened to a height of at least eight feet.
The proposed use meets this requirement, as all existing maintenance bays do not face a
public street or any residential district.

Five existing parking spaces located in the southwest corner of the parcel will be dedicated for
the Automobile Rental use if approved. These spaces are currently needed to meet the current
parking requirements of the Auto Repair Garage, Minor use. At the time of approval, only 38
parking spaces were sufficient to meet parking requirements. Since then the Title 19
requirement for this use has increased from one space per 500 square feet to one space per 200
square feet, plus five additional spaces, creating a parking impaired site. At present, 83 spaces
are provided where 103 would now be required, including the proposed Automobile Rental use.
The parcel is part of a much larger commercial subdivision that contains ample parking;
however, the site preceded the adjacent shopping center development and must meet its own

SS

VAR-56830 and SUP-56829


Staff Report Page Six
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

parking requirements. Five additional spaces are therefore needed to accommodate the
Automobile Rental use. There is no increase in building area needed for the rental use, and
minor auto repair remains the primary use; therefore, conditions are much like they were under
the old parking standard. Given these circumstances, staff can support the Variance for the five
spaces, with conditions.
The proposed Automobile Rental use is permitted in the C-1 zoning district with approval of a
Special Use Permit. All minimum special use permit requirements are met by the proposal, and
it can be operated compatibly with the adjacent commercial land uses. Staff therefore
recommends approval with conditions.

FINDINGS (VAR-56830)
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.
The site provided sufficient parking to meet Title 19 requirements when first built. The only
change in this development has been a more stringent code requirement. Furthermore, the
subject parcel is part of a large commercial subdivision that normally shares parking and access
between parcels. Given these unusual circumstances, the applicants hardship is real and a
Variance is warranted.

VAR-56830 and SUP-56829


Staff Report Page Seven
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

FINDINGS (SUP-56829)
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.
The proposed Automobile Rental use is permitted in the C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning
district with approval of a Special Use Permit; the adjacent land uses are all commercial
and zoned compatibly as either C-1 or C-2 (General Commercial). The Automobile
Rental use would be ancillary to the primary Auto Repair Garage, Minor use within the
building. A maximum of only five vehicles would be available for rental.

2.

The subject site is physically suitable for the type and intensity of land use proposed.
The two-acre site is parking impaired, but is located between portions of a large
commercial subdivision with ample parking facilities, which makes this area suitable for
the proposed rental use.

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.
Rancho Drive, a 125-foot Expressway as classified by the Master Plan of Streets and
Highways, provides access to the site that is adequate to meet the additional requirements
of the proposed Automobile Rental use. Secondary access is provided through
neighboring parcels in the commercial subdivision.

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 Automobile rental use proposed for the site will be regulated through licensing,
thereby protecting the health, safety and general welfare of the public.

5.

The use meets all of the applicable conditions per Title 19.12.
The proposed use conforms to all minimum conditions for the Automobile Rental use.

ANALYSIS
A Tavern-Limited Establishment is described in Title 19.12 as: An establishment that is
licensed with a tavern-limited license in accordance with LVMC Chapter 6.50. There are no
Minimum Special Use Permit Requirements for this use. This use is permitted in the C-2
(General Commercial) zoning district with an approved Special Use Permit.
This project is located within the Downtown Centennial Plan Fremont East District within an
existing 4,149 square-foot tenant space; no outdoor seating is associated with this proposal due
to inadequate sidewalk clearance. The applicant has also indicated that the proposed
establishment will have a 1920s Prohibition Speak-Easy theme. The interior decorations will
also take on the mood of the 1920s. In addition, staff members of the proposed establishment
will be dressed in 1920s styled clothing, and a live DJ playing 1920s Ragtime music will be
provided.
This project is located on Fremont Street with ample parking for the proposed use provided by
nearby public parking lots within one block of the establishment and public parking meters
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.

proposed development specifically meets the goals of Las Vegas Downtown Centennial PlanFremont East District by promoting a pedestrian friendly environment with a diverse array of
retail establishments.

ANALYSIS
A Tavern-Limited Establishment is described in Title 19.12 as: An establishment that is
licensed with a tavern-limited license in accordance with LVMC Chapter 6.50. There are no
Minimum Special Use Permit Requirements for this use. This use is permitted in the C-M
(Commercial/Industrial) zoning district with an approved Special Use Permit.
This project is located in the Las Vegas Downtown Centennial Plan Downtown South District.
The applicant proposes to convert an existing 1,854 square-foot restaurant to a Tavern-Limited
Establishment at 807 South Main Street. As this site is located within the Downtown Centennial
Plan, it is not subject to the standard Title 19 parking requirements. This site is within walking
distance to paid parking lots that can provide adequate parking for the existing restaurant and the
proposed establishment. The interior of the establishment and the menu will provide primarily
modern and traditional Mexican dishes. As the use is consistent with uses generally associated
in the Downtown area and can be conducted in a compatible and harmonious manner with the
surrounding neighborhood, staff recommends approval of this request. If denied, the TavernLimited Establishment use will not be allowed at this location; however the restaurant may
remain open and serve beer, wine and coolers in conjunction with a meal.

FINDINGS (SUP-54300)
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.

compatible with existing surrounding land uses, and with future surrounding land
uses as projected by the General Plan.
The proposed Tavern-Limited Establishment use is located within an existing restaurant
and can be conducted in a manner that is compatible with the existing and similar
surrounding land uses

2.

The subject site is physically suitable for the type and intensity of land use proposed.
The subject site is physically suitable for this type of intensity of land use, as the existing
use is a restaurant use with beer and wine on-sale. The parking requirements are the same
for both uses and there are other similar uses within a two block radius of the subject site.

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.

or compromise the public health, safety, and welfare or the overall objectives of the
General Plan.

appropriate measures will be taken to protect the public health, safety, and general
welfare.

ANALYSIS
This project is located in the Downtown Centennial Plan 18b Las Vegas Arts District and
proposes to construct a four-story commercial building totaling 20,916 square feet on 0.34 acres
at 197 East California Street. The subject site is located in the C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning
district, which is intended to provide most retail and personal services. The submitted floor plan
indicates the first floor function as a general retail, the second floor as office with the third and
fourth floor operating a restaurant with rooftop terrace. There is elevator access provided to all
four floors.
The subject site is currently undeveloped. The proposed building is 57 feet in height to the top of
the parapet with an articulated roofline. Exterior walls will be accented with a brick veneer
facade and Mindful Gray, Terra Brun and Eider White plaster accented by Inkwell
exterior metal finishes avoiding expressionless walls. All rooftop mechanical equipment has
been shielded from view by the use of parapet walls, and the canopies have been provided along
California Street and Casino Center Boulevard. The trash dumpster on-site has been screened
from view by incorporating it into the building envelope with a front gate, it is accessed from the
alley way on the west perimeter of the property.
The submitted landscape plan and site plan indicate streetscape requirements have also been met.
The submitted plans indicate a 10-foot sidewalk with 5-foot amenity zone have been provided
along the California Street and Casino Center Boulevard right-of-way alignments. 36-box
African Sumac trees adjacent to California Street and existing 36-box Chinese Pistache Trees

SDR-57026 [PRJ-56993]
Staff Report Page Five
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

adjacent to Casino Center Boulevard are provided in the amenity zone at 15-20 foot intervals
with 4x4 tree grates. The submitted landscaping plan incorrectly uses the same legend symbol
for both tree types; a condition has been added to provide an amended landscaping plan at the
time of building permits which two different symbols for each tree type. In addition, four-foot
parking lot landscape buffer has been provided adjacent to the ingress/egress adjacent to Casino
Center Boulevard with the standard 42 tall downtown centennial plan parking lot fence to
provide the required parking lot screening.
The proposed use and design of this proposal will make a positive contribution to the urban
design for the residents in the immediate area and of the community at large. Staff recommends
approval of the requested Site Development Plan Review for the proposed four-story commercial
development.

FINDINGS (SDR-57026)
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 commercial development is located in the Downtown Centennial Plan
overlay and will provide commercial uses that are complimentary to the other
restaurants and general retail uses in the neighborhood and is the type of use that is
encouraged in the Downtown Overlay District.

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;
This project is consistent with the General Plan and the uses allowed in the Downtown
Centennial Plan Overlay District.

3.

Site access and circulation do not negatively impact adjacent roadways or


neighborhood traffic;
Site access is provided from Casino Center Boulevard, a 80-foot Major Collector and
California Street, a 70-foot Local Street as designated in the Master Plan of Streets and
Highways. These streets are sufficient in size to accommodate the needs of the proposed
use. The parking standards of Title 19 are not automatically applied for proposals within
the Downtown Centennial Plan; however, the applicant anticipates utilizing nearby public
parking-lots and on-street parking meters to satisfy the developments parking demand.

Re:
Justification Letter Site Development Plan Review

Parcel Number: 1 62-03-1 1 0-068

Attached is an application for Site Development Plan review for your consideration and approval for the 0.34+/- acre site

located within APN 1 62-03-1 1 0-068 at the southwest corner of East California Street and South Casino Center Blvd., in the

City of Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada.

We are proposing the development of a new 4 story structure (3 interior and a rooftop patio terrace) to accommodate

additional commercial real estate for retail, office, and restaurant uses to meet the demands of the market. The total square

footage of the development is proposed to be 20,91 6 square feet which equates to 5,229 gross square feet of retail use, 5,229

gross square feet of office use, 5,229 gross square feet of restaurant use, and 5,229 gross square feet of the shared rooftop

patio terrace. The total height of the structure is proposed to be 57-0 in height.

We offer that the buildings design, proposed use, and character are compatible with immediately adjacent developments and

relate to the on-going redevelopment efforts in the community to which this project will be a part of. The design of the

project is proposed to satisfy the intent and goals as established by the Las Vegas Downtown Centennial plan which governs

the development requirements of this parcel. Specifically, the parcel is located within the zone designated as the 1 8b Las

Vegas Arts District. As such, the setbacks, lot coverage, service area requirements, utilities, alleys, streetscape and

encroachment restrictions for this district have been incorporated into the project design. We to accommodate ease of

access to the parking lot on the site, we are requesting a new point of entry and exit to the lot off of South Casino Center

Boulevard as indicated on the site plan. In conjunction with the alley access, the additional lot access will ease traffic

congestion for those looking to park and visit project.

Per Title 1 9, the on-site parking required is a total of 258 stalls. Per the governing requirements established by the Las Vegas

Downtown Centennial Plan for the 1 8b Las Vegas Arts District, the on-site parking requirements prescribed by Title 1 9 are

not automatically applicable. In addition to the 1 3 on site stalls provided by the proposed design, staff, patrons and visitors

to the commercial development may utilize the nearby public parking lots and adjacent off-site (street side) parking available

within mile of the site.

We respectfully request an exemption from the parking lot landscaping standards as required by Title 1 9. We propose that

it is more desirable to have the additional parking stalls on site in lieu of the landscape fingers within the parking lot as well

as the landscape island and screening adjacent to the alley to the west of the property.

Based on the above information, the Applicant respectfully requests your approval of the site development plan for the

Property. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 702-586-5558 to discuss them.

Staff Recommendation

Approval

ANALYSIS
The applicant is proposing to establish a 2,467 square-foot Liquor Establishment (Tavern) use
within a commercial space located at 322 Fremont Street. The submitted floor plan indicates that
this Tavern will provide seating for 25 people. The subject site is located within the C-2 (General
Commercial) zoning district, which allows the Liquor Establishment (Tavern) use with an
approved Special Use Permit.
The subject site is located in the Downtown Centennial Plan (Central Casino Core); in the
pedestrian mall controlled and operated by the Fremont Street Experience. The existing
commercial development provides shared access and parking throughout the subject site, through
the utilization of existing parking lots in the area.

JB

SUP-55682 [PRJ-55576]
Staff Report Page Five
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

A Liquor Establishment (Tavern) use is described in Title 19.12 as: A facility which sells
alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises where the same are sold and authorizes 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.

Minimum Special Use Permit Requirements:


* 1. Pursuant to its general authority to regulate the sale of alcoholic beverages, the City Council
declares that the public health, safety and general welfare of the City are best promoted and
protected by generally requiring both a minimum separation between liquor establishments
(tavern), and a minimum separation between a liquor establishment (tavern) and certain other
uses that should be protected from the impacts associated with a liquor establishment (tavern).
Therefore, except as otherwise provided below, no liquor establishment (tavern) may be located
within 1500 feet of any other liquor establishment (tavern), church/house of worship, school,
individual care center licensed for more than 12 children, or City park.
The proposed Liquor Establishment (Tavern) use does not meet this requirement, as the
applicant has requested Waivers to allow a 130-foot distance separation from an existing Tavern
and 1,200-foot distance separation from an existing church/house of worship use where a 1,500foot minimum distance separation is required. This condition can be waived in this instance
pursuant to Title 19.12.010 condition #5a; because the subject site is located within the
Downtown Casino Overlay District. Staff supports this requested waiver, as the use will be
located in close proximity to similar land uses within the pedestrian corridor of the Fremont
Street Experience. Additionally, the applicant shall provide security and control over the
administration of alcohol sales and consumption.
* 2. The distance separation referred to in Requirement 1 shall be measured with reference to the
shortest distance between two property lines, one being the property line of the proposed liquor
establishment (tavern) which is closest to the existing use to which the measurement pertains,
and the other being the property line of that existing use which is closest to the proposed liquor
establishment (tavern). The distance shall be measured in a straight line without regard to

b. The property line of a liquor establishment (tavern) refers to:


i. The property line of a parcel that has been created by an approved and recorded parcel
map or commercial subdivision map; or
ii. The property line of a parcel that is located within an approved and recorded

the Downtown Centennial Plan, the Gaming Enterprise Overlay District, or the
Downtown Casino Overlay District;
b. Will be located on a parcel or within a building that, pursuant to State law or City

i. That has been approved by means of Special Use Permit pursuant to LVMC
Chapters 19.12 and 19.16;
ii. That has a minimum net site area of 15 acres; and
iii. Whose gross floor area of nonresidential space is a minimum of 250,000
square feet; or
e. Will be separated from the existing use by a street or highway with a minimum rightof-way width of 100 feet.
The proposed Liquor Establishment (Tavern) use does not meet this distance separation
requirement set form in condition #1, as the applicant has requested Waivers to allow a 130-foot
distance separation from an existing Tavern and 1,200-foot distance separation from an existing
church/house of worship use where a 1,500-foot minimum distance separation is required.
However, the distance separation requirements outlined in condition #1 can be waived in this
case pursuant to Title 19.12.010 condition #5a; because the subject site is located within the
Downtown Casino Overlay District.
* 6. The use shall conform to, and is subject to, the provisions of LVMC Chapters 6.40 and 6.50.
The proposed use will be subject to all business licensing requirements outlined in LVMC
Chapter 6.40 and 6.50 if approved.
According to the submitted justification letter and floor plan, the proposed use meets the
definition outlined above. The proposed Liquor Establishment (Tavern) also adheres to all
minimum special use permit requirements as outlined by the Title 19.12, except for the
associated Waiver to allow a 130-foot distance separation from an existing Tavern and 1,200foot distance separation from an existing church/house of worship use where a 1,500-foot
minimum distance separation is required. In addition, staff has added a condition of approval
requiring the business conform to all provisions of LVMC Chapter 6.50 with regards to running
a Liquor Establishment (Tavern). The proposed use meets the intent of the Downtown
Centennial Plan by providing opportunities for community gathering; and is compatible with the
existing entertainment-based uses within the immediate area; therefore, staff recommends
approval with conditions.

FINDINGS (SUP-55682)
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.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting to vacate a City of Las Vegas public right-of-way generally known as
9th Street located between Lewis Avenue and Clark Avenue. The right-of-way area to be vacated
is approximately 411 feet long and 51 feet wide; and is bounded on the east and west by the Las
Vegas High School. Staff has determined it is in the best interest for the Citys revitalization
efforts to maintain the current traffic flow on 9th Street without interruption, which is why staff
recommends denial of the request to vacate 9th Street between Lewis Avenue and Clark Avenue.

Nevada Recorder's Office and as bounded on the north by the prolongation of the south right-ofway of Lewis Avenue (80' wide) as shown in book 1 page 35 of plats, on file at the Clark
County, Nevada Recorder's Office.
Together with that spandrel area lying north of the south right-of-way of said Lewis Avenue,

instrument number 01625 of official records, on file at the Clark County, Nevada Recorder's
Office.

ANALYSIS
This Vacation application proposes to vacate existing Patent Easements and Public Right-ofWays. Public Works offers the following comments:
A. Does this vacation request result in uniform or non-uniform right-of-way widths?
N/A as it is to eliminate 9th Street between Clark Avenue and Lewis Avenue.
B. From a traffic handling viewpoint will this vacation request result in a reduced
traffic handling capability? Yes as 9th Street is used for vehicular traffic and includes
the Entertainment Trail.
C. Does it appear that the vacation request involves only excess right-of-way? No, it is
to eliminate right-of-way in between buildings at the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts so
that the school may use the vacated area for safe school passage and other activities.
D. Does this vacation request coincide with development plans of the adjacent parcels?
Yes as the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts intends to use it for school functions.
E. Does this vacation request eliminate public street access to any abutting parcel? No,
the adjacent properties are all owned by the Clark County school District.

JB

VAC-56644
Staff Report Page Five
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

F. Does this vacation request result in a conflict with any existing City requirements?
Yes, maintaining a through street.
G. Does the Department of Public Works have an objection to this vacation request?
Yes.
The Department of Public Works is opposed to the Vacation application request generally known
as 9th Street located between Lewis Avenue and Clark Avenue.
FINDINGS (VAC-56644)
The Department of Public Works and Department of Planning are opposed to this Petition of
Vacation as the elimination of a portion of a major north/south street will impede traffic flow.
Additionally, the Clark County School District, to date, has not obtained signed, notarized letters
from the adjacent land owners who are directly affected stating their non-objection to the proposed
vacation. Therefore, Staff recommends denial with conditions.

ANALYSIS
The subject site consists of 7.27 acres located at 4901 East Bonanza Road. The applicant has
requested a General Plan Amendment (GPA-56713) of the Southeast Sector Land Use Plan from
MLA (Medium Low Attached Density Residential) land use district to the M (Medium Density
Residential) land use district. In addition, the applicant has also requested a Rezoning (ZON56715) to amend the zoning designation from R-MH (Mobile/Manufactured Home Residential)
to R-3 (Medium Density Residential). The Medium Low Attached Density Residential land use
district and Medium Density Residential zoning designation allow a variety of multi-family units
such as townhouses and low density apartments, which is why staff supports the proposed land
use and zoning modifications.
The applicant has requested a Site Development Plan Review (SDR-56711) to develop the
subject site with a Multi-Family Residential Development land use. A private drive with gated

entry will provide internal circulation, both dedicated off-street parking areas in front of the
proposed units and garage areas will provide the primary parking for the site. The proposed
development will consist of 80 one-story units, a 2,998 square-foot clubhouse and a pool and
picnic area. Waivers of Title 19.06 landscaping buffer requirements have been requested to allow
a 3.5-foot buffer along the east perimeter where six feet is required; a zero-foot buffer along the
southern perimeter where six feet is required and a zero-foot buffer along a portion of the
western perimeter where six feet is required. Staff has determined the proposed development is
compatible with surrounding development in the area, and the requested Waivers and will have a
minimal negative impact to the surrounding commercial development.
In addition, Exceptions are required to allow zero trees where three trees are required in the
parking lot and to allow trees spaced at 30feet off center within the landscape buffer areas. The
parking lot already exists and the hardscape that surrounds the parking lot does not allow ample
room to plant the required trees. This exception is off-set by the fact that the parking lot is
adjacent to the required 10-foot wide front landscape buffer that has trees placed every 24 feet on
center. The submitted landscaping plan indicates that the primary tree species utilized in the
perimeter landscaping buffer areas are a combination of 24-box Bottle Trees and Mondell Pine
Trees spaced 30 feet off center. Adjacent to Bonanza Road there are existing Mexican Fan Palm
trees will remain in place with a combination of five-gallon Canary Palm Trees and 24-box
Bottle Trees and Mondell Pines trees placed 22 feet off center.
The applicant has also requested a Variance (VAR-56712) to allow 135 on-site parking spaces
where 176 parking spaces are the minimum required for the proposed use. The applicant has
provided 70 additional tandem parking spaces, which cannot be counted towards the overall onsite total because of their placement behind the proposed garage spaces; which will provide the
additional parking on-site. The addition of the proposed 80-unit Multi-Family Development
would create a site with insufficient parking and result in a 23% deviation from standard parking
requirements.
This project is supported indirectly by 2.1.5a of the Neighborhood Revitalization section of the
Housing Element which states in part: The City shall amend its Zoning Ordinance and
Subdivision Ordinance, as necessary, to allow for accessory apartments and reduced setbacks,
under certain tightly controlled conditions, including provision of adequate parking, where such
measures will increase the viability and attractiveness of selected forms of infill development.
Although, not a traditional infill project, it meets the definition since it is currently a vacant,
underutilized parcel of land in a mature neighborhood.
Staff has determined that the proposed project will operate in harmony with the surrounding
neighborhood and that it will further the Citys goal of neighborhood revitalization of mature
areas by actively utilizing a vacant parcel, staff recommends approval of all applications to
develop an 80-unit Multi-Family Residential development on the site.

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.

Re: Justification Letter for the request for a Zone Change

for the Bonanza Springs Resort Homes

The Bonanza Springs Resort requests include:

A Site Development Review, for a proposed 80-unit multi-family residential development with waivers

to allow; a 3'6"- foot buffer along the East and West perimeter where six feet is required; a zero-foot

buffer along the southern perimeter where six feet is required; and a zero-foot buffer along a 60' portion

of the western perimeter where six feet is required. These wavers are requested on a 7.27 acre lot, located

at 4901 East Bonanza Road. Note: The North or Bonanza Frontage landscape buffer is at 10' as required.

In addition to the above we are requesting:

General Plan Amendment, from a "MLA" [medium low attached density residential] to a "M" [medium

density residential].

Rezoning, from an "R-MH" [mobile/manufactured home residential] to a R-3 [medium density

residential].

Variance, to allow 135 parking spaces where 176 are required, for a proposed 80-unit multi-family

dwelling.

Exception, plantings in the landscape buffers on the East and West property lines are at 25' on center

instead of the required 20' on center.

By providing conventionally framed "Patio Home" type dwelling units at our project, in lieu of mobile

homes, we believe, will result in the much needed revitalization of the area, and it will create a more

permanent, and substantial development for the Las Vegas Valley. It will also bring significantly greater

monetary revenues, not only to the local construction workers and material suppliers, but to the City of

Las Vegas in the form of building permits and fees. The purpose of this request is solely for Duplex and

Patio Home type conventional framed structures, to be placed at this project as mentioned above, as

apposed to manufactured homes, that we would have to purchase out of state and transport to our project.

We are now trying to save the locations of existing roads, utilities, clubhouse, and other infrastructure

previously applied for and approved, also the landscape buffers and set-back that were previously

approved. However, landscape materials and plantings have now been substantially increased and

beautified as part of this new proposal, see new and improved landscape plan. Trees are positioned at

pilasters located 25' on center on the East and West property lines where 20' OC is required; to

compensate for this more shrubs and other trees have been added in and around each buffer area to more

then compensate for the additional 5' spacing add. Note also adjoining land use at the East and West

property lines are commercial in nature. The South property line buffer is consistent with the adjoining

property. Additionally, parking is not accurately counted because staff can not count the interior garage

spaces now available as parking; because of the double parking rules of this zoning district. All

application requests have been submitted for this approval, and we have worked extensively with the

building and planning departments to resolve any and all possible present and forthcoming issues. We do

appreciate your thoughtful consideration in approving this request.

Thank you

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
This is a request to amend a portion of the Southeast Sector Plan of the General Plan from PF
(Public Facilities) to MXU (Mixed Use), on the north portion of 3.51 acres located at 821 North
Las Vegas Boulevard. There is a companion request for a Rezoning (ZON-56916) from C-V
(Civic) to C-2 (General Commercial) on the subject site. The property is owned by the City of
Las Vegas and is home to the Reed Whipple Cultural Arts Center. The subject site is dual
designated and this application will facilitate a single land use and zoning district for the
purposes of future redevelopment; therefore, staff recommends approval. If these applications
are denied, the General Plan designation would remain PF (Public Facilities), and the zoning
designation would remain C-V (Civic).

Will these applications affect the rear of the Biltmore subdivision?


o No these applications merely clean up a dual designated parcel
to a single land use designation and zoning district.
Is any development proposed for the subject site?
o There is no development proposed at this time. Any future
development of the site will require a public hearing.
Is there a plan for this area?
o The area is part of the North Las Vegas Plan area and there is
renewed interest in developing an area plan for the Cultural

ANALYSIS
The subject site is located within the Downtown North Plan Land Use Plan and the following
special purpose and overlay districts: C-V (Civic) District, A-O (Airport Overlay) District and
the Las Vegas Boulevard Scenic Byway Overlay District. Future projects within each special
purpose and overlay district will be subject to the standards and requirements of the special
purpose and overlay districts. The site is also within the Las Vegas Redevelopment Plan area.
There are various bike paths and trails adjacent to the site that will not be impacted by this
request.
The proposed General Plan Amendment and Rezoning are appropriate, as the subject site is dual
designated and this application will facilitate a single land use and zoning district for the
purposes of future redevelopment. This action will bring the entire parcel under the same land
use and zoning designations, thus correcting a split parcel designation. The MXU (Mixed Use)
General Plan designation, as well as the proposed C-2 (General Commercial) zoning district is
intended for commercial uses such as retail, service, office and mixed-use developments;
therefore, staff recommends approval. If these applications are denied, the subject site would
continue to permit only civic uses, which would inhibit the redevelopment of the subject
property.

Staff Report Page Four
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

FINDINGS (GPA-56915)

in order to justify a General Plan Amendment:
1.

The density and intensity of the proposed General Plan Amendment is compatible

The intensity of the proposed MXU (Mixed Use) General Plan designation is
compatible with the existing PF (Public Facilities) and MXU (Mixed Use) land use
designations on adjacent properties.

2.

The zoning designations allowed by the proposed amendment will be compatible with
the existing adjacent land uses or zoning districts,
The proposed General Plan designation allows for the zoning district of C-2 (General

There are adequate transportation, recreation, utility, and other facilities to


accommodate the uses and densities permitted by the proposed General Plan
Amendment; and

services are currently in place and available. Therefore, there are adequate facilities
available to accommodate the uses and densities permitted by the proposed General Plan
Amendment.

4.

The proposed amendment conforms to other applicable adopted plans and policies
that include approved neighborhood plans.
No applicable plans are affected by this request.

FINDINGS (ZON-56916)

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 proposed C-2 (General Commercial) zoning district would permit retail, service,
office and mixed-use developments that is compatible with the surrounding land uses
and zoning districts.

3.

Growth and development factors in the community indicate the need for or
appropriateness of the rezoning.
The proposed Rezoning is appropriate, as the City of Las Vegas no longer anticipates longterm civic uses on the subject site.

4.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting to construct a new restaurant with drive-through on nine parcels of
land that are currently evenly divided between R-1 (Single Family Residential) and R-2
(Medium-Low Density Residential) zoning districts located on Sahara Avenue between San Jose
Avenue and Stockton Avenue. This request requires a General Plan Amendment from L (Low
Density Residential) to SC (Service Commercial) land use on the northern portion of the project.
It also requires all nine parcels to be rezoned to C-1 (Limited Commercial). Staff supports these
requests as they are appropriate designations for property that is adjacent to Sahara Avenue, once
remapped.
In addition, the project will require a Site Development Plan Review with an Exception. The
Exception is to allow for one less landscape finger island in the parking lot than is required. This
is needed to allow for eight sub-compact parking spaces and a more cohesive overall site design.
Staff supports this application. If these applications are denied, the parcels will remain
undeveloped and vacant until new entitlements are secured.

ANALYSIS
The subject site is located in the Southeast Sector of the General Plan and has a current General
Plan designation of L (Low Density Residential) and SC (Service Commercial) with Zoning of
R-1 (Single Family Residential) and R-2 (Medium-Low Density Residential), respectively. This
is a proposal to amend the General Plan designation to all be SC (Service Commercial) and to
rezone the parcels to C-1 (Limited Commercial). The Service Commercial category allows low
to medium intensity retail, office, or other commercial uses that serve primarily local area
patrons and that do not include more intense general commercial characteristics. Examples
include neighborhood shopping centers, theaters, and other places of public assembly and public
and semi-public uses. This category also includes standalone offices or grouped as office centers
with professional and business services. The Service Commercial category may also allow
mixed-use development with a residential component where appropriate. The proposed Service
Commercial General Plan designation and the companion C-1 (Limited Commercial) designation
requests are compatible with the existing surrounding residential and commercial uses. Staff
recommends approval for these applications.
A total of nine parcels, all zoned for residential use is proposed to be remapped into one parcel
for commercial development of a proposed restaurant with a drive-through. This use is
permitted in the proposed C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district. As this new parcel is
adjacent to a primary arterial roadway, the use is appropriate use and location for this type of
development. The proposed restaurant with drive-through is being developed as a standalone
project. The design is similar to other restaurants in the area and has the code appropriate buffers
of landscaping and a CMU solid wall to protect the residential uses to the north.
Ingress and egress to the project will take place off the Local streets. This is a direct result of
both the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and the Regional Transportation
Commission (RTC) restricting access directly onto Sahara Avenue. These agencies feel that if
direct access were allowed, the publics safety would be jeopardized as there would not be
enough room for public buses to stop at the existing bus shelters along the projects Sahara
Avenue frontage. Although access will be from local streets, staff believes the vast majority of
the traffic will continue to flow onto Sahara Avenue with minimal impact on the residential
portion of the local streets.

January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

The building is located toward the south portion of the site adjacent to Sahara Avenue. The
drive-through will provide the code required, six-vehicle stacking, beginning from the pick-up
window on the south side of the building and continuing around the west side of the building
along San Jose Avenue. A minimum of 36 parking spaces is required for the size and use of the
proposed building. The applicant is providing the required parking, including two handicap
accessible spaces. An additional over-sized loading is zone is provided that will also allow for
easy access to the trash enclosure without interfering with required parking spaces.
The project was designed to meet all code requirements. However, staff suggested some minor
adjustments to allow for the existing bus shelters to be relocated behind a 10-foot wide sidewalk
for safety purposes. This required the entire development to be reconfigured on the site and the
result was the need for an Exception. The Exception would allow for the removal of one
landscaped parking lot island in order to allow for eight sub-compact parking spaces to be
installed. This is supported by staff, as it allows for a more cohesive site design with better
traffic flow on and off the site.
The project furthers the citys Master Plan Neighborhood Revitalization Goal 2: Mature
neighborhoods will be sustained and improved through appropriate and selective high quality
redevelopment and preservation. This proposed development is situated on the Sahara Avenue
commercial right-of-way and provides easy access for both vehicle and pedestrian visitors.
Another food option is being provided and an under-developed parcel on a high trafficked
commercial avenue is being developed. For these reasons, staff recommends approval of the
application with conditions.
FINDINGS (GPA-57029)
1.

The density and intensity of the proposed General Plan Amendment is compatible
with the existing adjacent land use designations,
The proposed amendment is compatible with the existing adjacent SC (Service
Commercial) designations along Sahara Avenue.

2.

The zoning designations allowed by the proposed amendment will be compatible with
the existing adjacent land uses or zoning districts,
The zoning designations allowed by the proposed amendment are compatible with the
existing adjacent land use and zoning designations along Sahara Avenue.

3.

There are adequate transportation, recreation, utility, and other facilities to


accommodate the uses and densities permitted by the proposed General Plan
Amendment; and

Staff Report Page Eight
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

The proposed Restaurant and Drive-through Facility are compatible with the adjacent uses
and is design in manner that is sensitive to the adjacent residential land uses to the north,
while remaining compatible with the neighboring commercial development to the east,
west and south.
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 development meets all code requirements aside from the requested
Exception.

3.

Site access and circulation do not negatively impact adjacent roadways or


neighborhood traffic;
The access to the site is required to be from the two adjacent local streets as a result of
existing RTC bus shelters and NDOT refusal to allow direct access onto Sahara Avenue
for safety concerns. The vast majority of the traffic generated by this project will remain
on Sahara Avenue with minimal impact on the adjacent residential neighborhood.

4.

Building and landscape materials are appropriate for the area and for the City;

orderly and aesthetically pleasing environment; and are harmonious and compatible
with development in the area;
The proposed building elevations are designed around the applicants desire to improve the
aesthetics while reinforcing the branding of a specific, fast-food restaurant. The site layout,
to include the drive-through lane and trash enclosure, are designed and located
appropriately to maintain the orderly environment of the existing commercial development
along Sahara Avenue and in sensitivity to adjacent residential uses on the north.

6.

Appropriate measures are taken to secure and protect the public health, safety and
general welfare.
The proposed restaurant is subject to ongoing City building permit review and inspections
for licensing; therefore, public health, safety, and welfare will not be compromised.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting a General Plan Amendment and a Rezoning to match the multiresidential property adjacent to the north in anticipation of redevelopment of the site. The

January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

ANALYSIS
The subject parcel is currently developed with a union hall and two modular buildings. The
proposed General Plan Amendment from SC (Service Commercial) to M (Medium Density
Residential) is required to accommodate the proposed R-3 (Medium Density Residential) zoning
district, which will allow the development of a future multi-family apartment complex.
The site is located within the Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area of the 2020 Master Plan,
which has policies encouraging infill development on vacant or underutilized parcels. Policy 2.6.2
specifically states that, The City takes steps to encourage the development of two, three, and fourplex housing opportunities. This parcel is currently developed with an under-utilized union hall.
The redevelopment of this parcel with a quality multi-family product will be an enhancement to the
area, as well as carry out the policy intentions of the Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area.

FINDINGS (GPA-57254)
Section 19.16.030(I) of the Las Vegas Zoning Code requires that the following conditions be met
in order to justify a General Plan Amendment:
1.

The density and intensity of the proposed General Plan Amendment is compatible
with the existing adjacent land use designations,
The proposed M (Medium Density Residential) designation would be compatible with the
existing M (Medium Density Residential) designated parcel to the north.

2.

The zoning designations allowed by the proposed amendment will be compatible with
the existing adjacent land uses or zoning districts,
The proposed M (Medium Density Residential) designation would allow for establishment
of residential densities up to 25.49 dwelling units per. A companion Rezoning application
(ZON-57255) of the site to R-3 would be compatible with the existing R-3 district to the
north.

3.

There are adequate transportation, recreation, utility, and other facilities to


accommodate the uses and densities permitted by the proposed General Plan
Amendment; and
The area is completely development with all infrastructure and utilities in place.

4.

The proposed amendment conforms to other applicable adopted plans and policies
that include approved neighborhood plans.

GPA-57254 and ZON-57255 [PRJ-57248]


Staff Report Page Four
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

The Las Vegas 2020 Master Plan calls for more diversity in housing choices for
residents, greater walkability both within neighborhoods and to area amenities, and
access to public transportation. Through careful planning, any proposed residential
development on this site would be able to meet these goals.

FINDINGS (ZON-57255)
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 R-3 (Medium Density Residential) will adhere to the General Plan once the
proposed General Plan Amendment (GPA-57254) is approved. This is a companion case
to this application.

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 proposed residential use will match the residential use and permitted density to the
north.

3.

Growth and development factors in the community indicate the need for or
appropriateness of the rezoning.
Affordable housing needs are on the rise in the Las Vegas Valley and this project will
assist with addressing this need.

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.
This project is accessed by Lamb Boulevard, a 100-foot wide Primary Arterial Street as
designed on the Master Plan of Streets and Highways map.

the City adopt an above ground utility plan as part of its master plan.
The Sothern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition (SNRPC) approved an

Neighborhood Meeting
The city of Las Vegas held a joint neighborhood meeting for four City
initiated projects. Five members of the public and two City Council staff
12/16/14
members were present at the meeting, but there was no discussion related to
this item.

BACKGROUND
In accordance with A.B. 239, the city of Las Vegas is required to prepare and adopt a utility plan
as a component of its master plan. The Citys utility plan is located within the Public Facilities
and Services Element and it will be amended to accomplish the following per A.B. 239:

FS

GPA-56951 (PRJ-56950)
Staff Report Page Two
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

1. Establish a process for the designation of corridors for the construction of above ground
utility projects and transmission lines.
2. Ensure consistency with the energy plans prepared by the Nevada State Office of Energy.
3. Ensure consistency with the above ground utility plans of adjacent jurisdictions.
4. Ensure consistency with the Bureau of Land Managements Resource Management Plan.
This proposed revision to the master plan both identifies transmission corridors and establishes
the procedure for establishing new corridors or amending existing ones. Any entity requesting to
establish or amend an aboveground utility corridor will be required to submit a General Plan
Amendment application.
As required by the statute, the city of Las Vegas has coordinated with local entities as well as
NV Energy, the Bureau of Land Management and the Nevada Office of Energy. The proposed
utility plan, once approved by the City Council, will be required to be filed with the Public
Utility Commission of Nevada.
A Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition working group has developed regional policies
and has ensured consistency between utility plans of member agencies. The SNRPC amended
the Regional Policy Plan on October 28, 2014 to include above ground polices that are to be used
for all jurisdictions.
ANALYSIS
This amendment of the 2020 Master Plan Public Facilities and Services Element will incorporate
revised utility language, new policies within the implementation section, and a new utility
corridor and substation map to replace Map 5.
The revised language within the utility section is intended to clarify the process for the
designation of corridors as required by state law, as well as reiterate the entitlement approval
process outlined in the Unified Development Code. The amended text is as follows:
At the 2013 legislative session, Assembly Bill 239 passed which reduces a local entitys
oversight regarding the location of utility transmission lines of over 200 kilovolts. The bill
requires administrative approval of all transmission lines over 200 kilovolts that are located
within an established utility corridor and all others identified on Map 5 of this document.
Transmission lines of over 15 kilovolts that are located outside of an established corridor must be
considered by Special Use Permit. The governing body may approve or deny the use permit
application based on the following criteria:
1. Whether the above ground utility transmission line project conflicts with any existing or
planned infrastructure or utility project.

FS

GPA-56951 (PRJ-56950)
Staff Report Page Three
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

2. The above ground utility transmission lines proximity to any school, hospital or urban
residential area with a dwelling density greater than two units per acre.

The applicant may then appeal approved legislation provides for an appeals process of the
Planning Commissions Citys decision to the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada if the
applicant believes that the City did not act in a timely manner, or if they feel aggrieved by
conditions imposed with the use permit. Map 5 depicts the location of existing and proposed
above ground transmission line corridors and substations. Any request to modify, add or remove
utility corridors identified on Map 5 of this document will be processed as a General Plan
Amendment.
The revised implantation section policies will align it with the intent of the legislation, provide
updated policy direction, and include the regional policies adopted by the Southern Nevada
Regional Planning Coalition.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting to remove 10.42 gross acres of undeveloped land from the approved
Providence Square Master Plan in order to establish residential uses on the site where
commercial uses are currently planned. The proposed General Plan Amendment would change
the land use designation from PCD (Planned Community Development) to ML (Medium Low
Density Residential) to provide the allowable density required for future residential development.
If approved, the site could accommodate up to 8.49 dwelling units per acre and allow for
westward growth of the existing single-family detached development to the east.
Although entitlements for implementing the planned development have expired, the Providence
Square Master Development Plan is still in effect through a previous Rezoning action (ZON25758). Approval of the requested General Plan Amendment would establish a consistent
pattern of moderate density residential development along the south side of Deer Springs Way.
Staff recommends approval. If denied, the site will remain as part of the Providence Square
Master Plan.

ISSUES
x

All development-related entitlements for the Providence Square Master Plan have expired;
due to land use changes following approval, that plan cannot be implemented as approved. If
the proposed amendment request is approved, development of this neighboring site will be
further restricted.
Any future development of the site will require approval of a Rezoning action, as well as a
Tentative Map or Site Development Plan Review, depending on the type of development.

ANALYSIS
The subject site is part of the Providence Square Master Planned Development, which has not yet
been developed. As approved, it consisted of 23.60 gross acres for commercial development on the
south side of Deer Springs Way that extended from Hualapai Way eastward to Conquistador Street.
In 2013, with permission of the adjacent landowners, an eight-acre portion of the site east of the
subject site was removed to establish medium-low density residential uses. The site-related
entitlements for a 205,000 square-foot commercial development on this site and adjacent parcels
have expired without being exercised; however, the Master Plan is still in effect, as it is tied to the
PD (Planned Development) Zone established in 2008. All land within the Master Plan area is
designated as Neighborhood Commercial. The applicant, by proposing this General Plan
Amendment, would effectively remove approximately 10.42 gross acres from the Master Plan area
and would require the Master Plan to be modified for any future development. The intent of the
proposed General Plan Amendment is to prepare the site for future single-family residential
development of up to 8.49 dwelling units per acre. The applicant has obtained permission from the
owner of the adjacent property to the west to encumber access to that site as originally envisioned
by the Providence Square Master Plan. The proposed ML (Medium Low Density Residential)
designation would be compatible with the existing ML-designated parcels to the east and would
allow for the expansion of the single-family residential development on that site. These parcels
would need to be rezoned to a conforming zoning category prior to development.

GPA-57033 [PRJ-56965]
Staff Report Page Six
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

The subject site is included in the Las Vegas/Clark County Interlocal Planning Area. The adjacent
parcels to the north of Deer Springs Way and those to the south of the subject site abutting the CC
215 freeway are within Excepted Area B. Unincorporated parcels with this area must remain at a
density of 3.5 dwelling units per gross acre unless the City and County jointly agree to a land use
approval to raise the density. There are no city-incorporated properties in a rural preservation
neighborhood in the vicinity of this request; however, several unincorporated and undeveloped
parcels to the north of the site are designated as part of rural preservation neighborhoods. Deer
Springs Way is expected to serve as a buffer from these designated properties.

FINDINGS (GPA-57033)
Section 19.16.030(I) of the Las Vegas Zoning Code requires that the following conditions be met
in order to justify a General Plan Amendment:
1.

The density and intensity of the proposed General Plan Amendment is compatible
with the existing adjacent land use designations,
The proposed ML (Medium Low Density Residential) designation would be compatible
with the existing ML-designated parcels to the east and would allow for the expansion of
that development. The remaining parcel in the PCD (Planned Community Development)
category is still designated for commercial uses, and properties north of Deer Springs Way
continue to be designated for rural residential development.

2.

The zoning designations allowed by the proposed amendment will be compatible with
the existing adjacent land uses or zoning districts,
The proposed ML designation would allow for establishment of residential densities from
2.00 to 8.49 dwelling units per acre within the R-E (Residence Estates), R-MH
(Mobile/Manufactured Home), R-1 (Single Family Residential), R-2 (Medium-Low
Density Residential) R-SL (Residential Small Lot) and R-CL (Single Family CompactLot) zoning districts. Future rezoning of the site to R-CL would be compatible with the
existing R-CL district to the east and allow for further development of that site.

3.

There are adequate transportation, recreation, utility, and other facilities to


accommodate the uses and densities permitted by the proposed General Plan
Amendment; and

Adequate utilities will be extended to this area, and Deer Springs Way will be
improved to Major Collector width on its south side. The site is within one mile of park and school
facilities; however, the elementary and high schools within proximity of the site are over capacity
for the current school year, and no additional schools are planned for the area. Most commercial
services are located 1.3 miles east in Town Center. Future residents would have easy access to CC
215 by way of Deer Springs Way.

SS

GPA-57033 [PRJ-56965]
Staff Report Page Seven
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

4.

The proposed amendment conforms to other applicable adopted plans and policies
that include approved neighborhood plans.
The Newly Developing Areas sector of the Las Vegas 2020 Master Plan calls for more
diversity in housing choices for residents, greater walkability both within
neighborhoods and to area amenities, and access to public transportation. Through
careful planning, any proposed residential development on this site would be able to
meet these goals.

With the recent reintroduction of the R-D (Single Family Residential Restricted) zoning
district, the 2020 Master Plan Land Use Element needs to be revised to reflect the
reintroduction of the R-D (Single Family Residential Restricted) zoning district.
The R-SL (Residential Small Lot) zoning district was recently introduced and needs to be
reflected within the Land Use Element.

ANALYSIS
On March 16, 2011, the City Council approved Ordinance 6135 which adopted the city of Las
Vegas Unified Development Code (UDC). As part of the adoption, the R-D (Single Family
Residential Restricted) zoning district was removed as an established zoning designation. At
the same time that the UDC was adopted, the City Council approved a concurrent General Plan
Amendment (GPA-40401) that revised the 2020 Maser Plan Land Use Element and made the
element consistent with the changes approved with the new UDC. One of the changes made
was to remove the R-D (Single Family Residential Restricted) zoning district from the land use
tables.
In subsequent years, it was decided that the R-D (Single Family Residential Restricted) district
was necessary to provide a middle ground between the 20,000 square-foot R-E (Residence
Estates) district lot, and the 6,500 square-foot R-1 (Single Family Residential) lot. In 2013, staff
initiated a UDC amendment to reintroduce the R-D (Single Family Residential Restricted)
zoning district with a minimum lot size of 10,000 square feet. The City Council approved this
action through Ordinance 6720 on June 19, 2013.
With the reintroduction of the R-D (Single Family Residential Restricted) district, the land use
tables of the 2020 Master Plan Land Use Element need to be revised to reflect the change. The
R-D (Single Family Residential Restricted) zoning district has been listed as compatible with
the R (Rural Density Residential) and the L (Low Density Residential) land use designations,
which allow densities of up to 3.59 and 5.49 units per acre, respectively.
On June 4, 2014, the City Council adopted ordinance 6323 which introduced the R-SL
(Residential Small Lot) zoning district into the UDC as a transition between the larger lot R-1
(Single Family Residential) district and the smaller lot R-CL (Single Family Compact Lot)
district. The R-SL (Residential Small Lot) zoning district allows a minimum residential lot size
of 4,500 square feet and is compatible with the L (Low Density Residential) and ML (Medium
Low Residential Density) land use designations.
Below, the residential portion of the land use table is shown with the addition of the R-D (Single
Family Residential Restricted) and the R-SL (Residential Small Lot) zoning districts.

ANALYSIS
The parcel to be rezoned is included within the Town Center Master Plan area with a MS-TC
(Main Street Mixed Use Town Center) land use designation. This designation is intended to
encourage a cohesive mix of interdependent uses within multi-level buildings that are amenable
to pedestrian rather than vehicular access. The adjoining approved and developed property was
not designed as a mixed-use development, and the addition of the proposed parking lot will
simply be an extension of office development. The rezoning of this property is appropriate for
these reasons, namely that it will formally bring the parcel into the Town Center Plan. Staff,
therefore recommends approval of the Rezoning request.

YK

ZON-57131 and SDR-56848 [PRJ-56734]


Staff Report Page Five
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

The parking lot as proposed is an appropriate use for this site and is compatible with the existing
and surrounding development with regard to layout and landscaping. A 28-foot wide driveway
providing access is proposed along the eastern edge of the developed property. Two-way traffic
will logically circulate around the parking lot.
A Waiver is required in order to not install the perimeter landscape buffer along the north
perimeter. This Waiver is supported by staff until the remainder of the parcel is developed. A
condition has been added to reflect this point. The second Waiver has been requested to allow a
five-foot wide landscape buffer, where an eight-foot wide buffer is required. Staff supports this
request since the project is acting in conjuncture with the development to the east and will
function in support of the office development.
The landscape plan only indicates five trees being provided within the perimeter landscape
buffer, where 11 trees are required. Staff has added a condition requiring all 11 trees be installed
with this project.
The project is being designed to support additional parking demands that may occur with new
tenets in the office complex adjacent to the east. The northern five percent of the parcel will be
developed in a later phase and is being left in its nature desert state until that time.

FINDINGS (ZON-57131)
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 property is already to be within the Town Center Master Plan area and designated
MS-TC (Main Street Mixed Use Town Center), which allows office and related
parking uses.

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 proposed parking lot use will provide additional over-flow parking for the existing
office building adjacent to the east and is therefore compatible.

3.

Growth and development factors in the community indicate the need for or
appropriateness of the rezoning.
The subject property is already included within the Town Center Master Plan and must
be rezoned to be fully incorporated into the plan and developed.

FINDINGS (SDR-56848)
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 parking lot is designed to have direct access to and be compatible with the
layout and landscape design of the existing office development on the adjacent eastern lot.

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 parking lot is consistent with the Town Center Master Land Use Plan, with
the approval of the requested Waivers.

3.

Site access and circulation do not negatively impact adjacent roadways or


neighborhood traffic;
Access is provided through the adjacent eastern parcel (APN 125-20-810-002) from Grand
Montecito Parkway and Rome Boulevard. Little impact to area traffic is expected, as no
additional uses are proposed.

4.

Building and landscape materials are appropriate for the area and for the City;
Landscape materials are consistent with those required by the Town Center Development
Standards.

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 design of the proposed parking lot is harmonious and compatible with the office
development on the eastern property, and sufficient landscaping will create an aesthetically
pleasing environment.

6.

Appropriate measures are taken to secure and protect the public health, safety and
general welfare.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The applicant is requesting to rezone a 0.54-acre undeveloped parcel of land from a U
(Undeveloped) zoning district [SC (Service Commercial) General Plan designation] to a C-1
(Limited Commercial) zoning district. The property is located on the northwest corner of Vegas
Drive and Fairhaven Street. A lot-width Variance is required to approve the Rezoning of this
site. The applicant has not submitted a development plan for the subject parcel. The proposed
Rezoning is consistent with the surrounding zoning districts and land uses and the requested C-1
(Limited Commercial) zoning district is in conformance with the underlying SC (Service
Commercial) General Plan land use category. The Variance will allow this site to be developed
for commercial use despite not meeting minimum code requirements. Staff supports the
requested Variance and Rezoning. If denied, the property would remain zoned U (Undeveloped).

ISSUES
x
x

The SC (Service Commercial) land use category allows for three zoning districts: C-1
(Limited Commercial), O (Office) and P-O (Professional Office).
There are no proposed development plans submitted with this request at this time.
A Variance is required to allow a lot width of 74 feet where 100 feet is the minimum lot
width for the C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district. Staff supports the requested lot
width Variance as the proposed zoning is consistent with the surrounding neighborhood
and the previously approved Rezoning requests.

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

ANALYSIS
According to the provided justification letter, the applicant is intending to rezone the subject
0.54-acre parcel from U (Undeveloped) zoning district [SC (Service Commercial) General Plan
designation] to a C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district. The applicants goal is to develop
the parcel for a future use.
The subject site was zoned C-1 (Local Business) prior to Annexation into the City and C-1
(Limited Commercial) after annexation occurred. Both Rezoning cases had a ROI (Resolution of
Intent) that was not exercised. Therefore, both land use entitlements expired.
The proposed C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district corresponds to the underlying SC
(Service Commercial) land use designation and is the appropriate zoning district that conforms to
the General Plan. However, a lot width Variance is required to allow a 74-foot lot width where
100 feet is the minimum required for the C-1 zoning district. The requested Variance is
consistent with NRS (Nevada Revised Statutes) requirements for granting a Variance, as an
exceptional situation exists, that being the area is planned for commercial uses and this site has
previously been approved for the requested C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district. The
granting of this Variance should not adversely affect the adjacent and future land uses in the
area. No development plans were submitted with this application.
If the requested Variance and Rezoning applications are approved then these applications will
solidify current and past zoning requests to rezone this site to C-1 (Limited Commercial). Staff
recommends approval of the both requests; however, if these applications are denied then zoning
will remain U (Undeveloped).

FINDINGS (ZON-56357)
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 existing General Plan designation of the subject site is SC (Service Commercial),
which allows low to medium intensity retail, office, or other commercial uses that serve
primarily local area patrons. The proposed Rezoning to C-1 (Limited Commercial) is
consistent with the current General Plan designation.

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.

MR

ZON-56357 AND VAR-57299


Staff Report Page Five
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

The proposed C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district is one of three allowable zoning
categories for the underlying land use and, as such, all requested uses will be required to
comply with the permissible uses for such district as listed in Title 19.12 for the C-1
(Limited Commercial) zoning district.
3.

Growth and development factors in the community indicate the need for or
appropriateness of the rezoning.
The request for a Rezoning to a C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district is appropriate.
There have been previous Rezoning requests for retail and commercial uses that were
deemed appropriate on the subject site. However, these entitlements have expired. The
applicant is seeking to re-establish the commercial zoning district. The area around the
subject site has been developed as single-family residential, a house of worship and other
commercial and retail uses. The low intensity commercial uses typically permitted in the
C-1 (Limited Commercial) zoning district is fitting for this site and the surrounding
community.

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.
The property is located on the northwest corner of Vegas Drive and Fairhaven Street.
Vegas Drive has been classified as an 80-foot wide Major Collector by the Master Plan of
Streets and Highways and Fairhaven Street is a 60-foot wide Minor Collector as defined
by Title 19. At this time no development plans have been submitted showing driveway
access from either roadway; however, the uses allowed in the C-1 (Limited Commercial)
zoning district can be adequately met by the existing street facilities.

FINDINGS (VAR-57299)
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

MR

ZON-56357 AND VAR-57299


Staff Report Page Six
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

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. The lot is narrow (74 feet wide lot) and was Annexed into
the City with this existing site condition. This site has been Rezoned [(ZC-0190-79) and (Z0051-99)] twice to C-1 (Limited Commercial) and the lot width has not been an issue. The
General Plan supports conversion of this undeveloped lot to a commercial use even though the
lot does not meet the minimum width requirements. In view of this hardship imposed by the
extraordinary circumstances listed above, 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.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The subject site consists of two lots totaling 3.14 acres at 6341 West Lone Mountain Road.
Currently, one lot is undeveloped with a non-permitted 432 square-foot modular building while
the other consists of a 3,882 square-foot house of worship building. The applicant is proposing to
expand the existing house of worship building to 19,222 square feet with a 15,340 square-foot
expansion. In addition, the applicant is proposing to retain the non-permitted 432 square-foot
modular building to use as an office space for the house of worship use. In total, the applicant is
requesting to expand the house of worship use to 19,654 square feet, with a 15,772 square-foot
expansion. This request will increase the building area, required landscaping and required
parking; therefore, a Major Amendment to the approved Plot Plan Review and Special Use
Permit (U-0139-98) is required. The proposed expansion of the primary building complies with
all minimum code requirements with the exception of residential adjacency standards. Although
the proposed height of 35 feet is within the maximum height requirements typically allowed in
the R-E (Residence Estates) zone, the subject site is surrounded by residentially zoned properties
and is subject to Residential Adjacency Standards. As proposed, the 35-foot tall building would
require a 105-foot setback to the nearest protected property, as outlined by Title 19.08.040(H).
According to the submitted site plan, the expanded building would only provide a 40-foot
setback to the R-E (Residence Estates) zoned property to the east where 105 feet is the minimum
required. The applicant is requesting a Variance to address the issue.
The applicant is attempting to overbuild the subject site, as evidenced by the requested Variance.
As a result, staff recommends denial. If denied, the proposed addition would not be permitted
and the existing 3,882 square-foot Church/House of Worship would remain. In addition, the
illegal 432 square-foot modular building would be removed from the subject site.

ISSUES
x

According to Title 19.16.110, a request to amend a previously approved Special Use


Permit qualifies as a major amendment if the expansion of the use represents more than
50% of the original approval. The proposed 15,772 square-foot expansion represents
more than 50% of the original approval; as such a Major Amendment is required.
According to Title 19.16.100, a request to amend a previously approved Site
Development Plan Review qualifies as a major amendment if the expansion of density,
floor area, or height is more than 10% of the original approval. The proposed 15,772
square-foot expansion represents more than 10% of the original approval; as such a
Major Amendment is required.

ANALYSIS
The subject site consists of two lots totaling 3.14 acres at 6341 West Lone Mountain Road.
Currently, one lot is undeveloped with a non-permitted 432 square-foot modular building while the
other consists of a 3,882 square-foot house of worship building. The applicant is proposing to
expand the existing house of worship building to 19,222 square feet with a 15,340 square-foot
expansion. In addition, the applicant is proposing to retain the non-permitted 432 square-foot
modular building to use as an office space for the house of worship use. In total, the applicant is

GK

VAR-56177, SUP-56178 and SDR-56179 [PRJ-55959]


Staff Report Page Seven
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

requesting to expand the house of worship use to 19,654 square feet, with a 15,772 square-foot
expansion. This request will increase the building area, required landscaping and required parking;
therefore, a Major Amendment to the approved Plot Plan Review and Special Use Permit (U-013998) is required.
The proposed two-story church/house of worship building consists of a 6,043 square-foot ground
floor and a 9,297 square-foot second floor. A total of 4,865 square feet would be dedicated for a
gathering area, which would require 49 parking stalls. The applicant is proposing a total of 98
parking stalls, which is adequate for both the existing and proposed use. The submitted building
elevations, date stamped 11/24/14, illustrate a carefully designed structure incorporating variations,
patterns, jogs and offsets to assist in dividing the 35-foot tall building mass and create architectural
character. In addition to the primary structure, the applicant is proposing to construct a basketball
court and soccer field.
The proposed expansion of the primary building complies with all minimum code requirements
with the exception of residential adjacency standards. Although the proposed height of 35 feet is
within the maximum height requirements typically allowed in the R-E (Residence Estates) zone, the
subject site is surrounded by residentially zoned properties and is subject to Residential Adjacency
Standards. As proposed, the 35-foot tall building would require a 105-foot setback to the nearest
protected property, as outlined by Title 19.08.040(H). According to the submitted site plan, the
expanded building would only provide a 40-foot setback to the R-E (Residence Estates) zoned
property to the east where 105 feet is the minimum required. The applicant is requesting a Variance
to address the issue. Portions of the new Church/House of Worship project extend beyond 35 feet in
height. These areas which extend beyond 35 feet are architectural features that do not contain any
floor area. Pursuant to Title 19.08.040, steeples for Churches/House of Worship may extend into
any required setback area and are exempt from the maximum height provisions provided that they
are clearly shown as a part of a Site Development Plan Review, thereby making the dome
conforming to Title 19.08 requirements.
In addition, the applicant constructed a 12-foot tall, 432 square-foot modular building without
proper building permits. The applicant is proposing to utilize the modular building as an office
space for the house of worship use. The modular building adheres to the minimum development
standards regarding height, setbacks, and lot coverage, but fails to match the proposed main
structure in architectural appearance. The submitted site plan illustrates a rectangular structure
consisting of grey wood paneling, which is not compatible with surrounding development.
The applicant has not provided evidence of a unique or extraordinary circumstance that requires the
proposal to deviate from the minimum standards. In fact, the Variance request is self-imposed in
nature and will disrupt the continuity found within the surrounding residential neighborhood.
Therefore, staff recommends denial of all application requests.

FINDINGS (VAR-56177)
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 proposing a 35-foot tall building which would require a
105-foot setback to the nearest protected property. Alternative building design would allow
conformance to the Residential Adjacency Standards outlined by Title 19. 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 (SUP-56178)
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.
The proposed expansion to the existing House of Worship use is compatible with the L
(Low Density Residential) land use designation. However, the excessive building height
provides evidence that the expansion is not compatible with the surrounding residential
neighborhood.

2.

The subject site is physically suitable for the type and intensity of land use proposed.
The subject site contains an existing 3,882 square-foot church/house of worship. The site
can continue to be physically suitable for the type and intensity of the church/house of
worship use.

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.
The overall site is accessed by Lone Mountain Road, designated as a 100-foot wide
Primary Arterial by the Master Plan of Streets and Highways, which is adequate to support
the expansion of the Church/House of Worship 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.
Approval of this Special Use Permit will not compromise the public health, safety and
general welfare of the public. The use will be subject to regular inspections.

5.

The use meets all of the applicable conditions per Title 19.12.
The proposed expansion to an existing church/house of worship use complies with all Title
19.12 requirements.

FINDINGS (SDR-56179)
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 existing church/house of worship building is located in a residential neighborhood.
The proposed height does not adhere to Residential Adjacency Standards. Therefore, the
proposed expansion is not compatible with adjacent residential development.

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;

GK

VAR-56177, SUP-56178 and SDR-56179 [PRJ-55959]


Staff Report Page Ten
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

The proposed expansion to an existing house of worship is consistent with the General
Plan and the uses allowed by Title 19. However, it is not consistent with the architectural
design outlined by Title 19, as evidenced by the requested Variance (VAR-56177).
3.

Site access and circulation do not negatively impact adjacent roadways or


neighborhood traffic;
The overall site is accessed by Lone Mountain Road, designated as a 100-foot wide
Primary Arterial by the Master Plan of Streets and Highways, which is adequate to support
the expansion of the Church/House of Worship use.

4.

Building and landscape materials are appropriate for the area and for the City;
The landscape materials for the entire subject site are appropriate for the area. The building
materials for the primary structure are appropriate; however, the modular building would
utilize grey wooden siding, which does not match the architectural style of the primary
structure or the surrounding single-family residences.

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 various materials and carefully designed variations, patterns, jogs, and offsets assist in
dividing the primary structures building mass and create architectural character. However,
the proposed modular building fails to match the proposed main structure in architectural
appearance. The modular building is not compatible with surrounding development in the
area.

6.

Appropriate measures are taken to secure and protect the public health, safety and
general welfare.
All development will require permits and inspections that will maintain the publics health,
safety and general welfare.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
This Tentative Map request is for a 33-lot single family residential subdivision on 11.7 acres at
the northeast corner of Rainbow Boulevard and El Campo Grande Avenue. The site is an
irregular rectangle shape making the layout of the site challenging. Larger residential properties
surround the site and current residents were concerned with the amount of traffic additional
homes would generate in the neighborhood.
This proposed Tentative Map would require a
Variance to allow for a 1.1 connectivity ratio and a Waiver to allow 40-foot wide streets without
sidewalks in a gated community. Staff recommends approval of all three applications, as the
unique shape of the parcels justifies the requested variance and waiver. If the applications are
denied, the property could not be developed as submitted.

ISSUES
x
x

A Variance is required to allow a 1.1 connectivity ratio, where the minimum permitted is
1.3 for a residential subdivision. Staff supports this request.
A Waiver is required to allow 40-foot wide private streets without sidewalks in a gated
development where complete street standards require 47-foot wide private streets with
five-foot wide sidewalks. Staff supports this request.

ANALYSIS
The applicant has worked with staff on a Tentative Map for an 11.5 acre, irregular-shaped
rectangle piece of land on the northeast corner of Rainbow Boulevard and El Campo Grande
Avenue. The plan calls for a 33-lot single-family subdivision with the lots fronting onto private
streets. The proposed entrance will intersect El Campo Grande Avenue by extending Gilbert
Lane to the north. The project does not meet the Connectivity Ratio of 1.3, thereby creating the
need for a Variance. Due to the unique shape of the land, the Variance is justified in order
develop a sustainable residential subdivision.
A Waiver is required to allow 40-foot wide private streets without sidewalks in a gated
development where 47-foot wide private streets with five-foot wide sidewalks are required. Staff
supports this request, again, due to the unique shape of the overall development.
The Clark County School District projects that approximately 13 primary and secondary school
students will be generated by the proposed development on this site. Of the three schools
serving the area (Neal Elementary School, Saville Middle School and Shadow Ridge High
School), the District notes that only Saville was not over capacity for the 2014-15 school year,
and no additional schools are planned.

Staff Report Page Five
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

The submitted north/south cross section show a maximum natural grade less than 2% across this
site. Per the Tables in Subdivision Code 19.06.050 a development with natural slope less than or
equal to 2%, is allowed a maximum 4-foot retaining wall. No retaining walls are shown along
the north or south property lines.
The submitted east/west cross section show a maximum natural grade greater than 2% across this
site. Per the Tables in Subdivision Code 19.06.050, a development with natural slope greater
than 2% is allowed a maximum 6-foot retaining wall. There are no retaining walls indicated
along the north or south property lines, however, there are retaining walls of 2-feet or less
indicated within the interior of the subdivision.
The development also supports the 2020 Master Plan Newly Developing Areas Policy 3.2.1:
That rural preservation neighborhoods, as defined by the State of Nevada, be afforded the
required transitional buffer where such portions of the required buffer area fall within the City of
Las Vegas and are lands that are currently vacant. This is to be accomplished by having large
lots over 7,877 square-feet in area. For these reasons, staff recommends approval of all three of
the applications.

FINDINGS (VAR-56867)
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.

Staff Report Page Six
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

Evidence of a unique or extraordinary circumstance has been presented, in that the applicant has
not created a self-imposed hardship as a result of the unique shape of the parcels to be developed.
In view of the hardship imposed by the sites physical characteristics, it is concluded that the
applicants hardship is not preferential in nature, and is thereby within the realm of NRS Chapter
278 for granting of Variances.

FINDINGS (WVR-56868)
Traffic counts at the affected intersections are expected to be low and the separation distance is
sufficient to minimize traffic conflicts; therefore, staff supports the request.

FINDINGS (TMP-56869)
The proposed Tentative Map conforms to the 2020 General Plan and Title 19, with the exception
of the requested Variance and Waiver. Staff recommends approval, as the Variance and Waiver
are needed as a result of the unique shape of the parcels.

The zoning of R-1 for the site was approved in July 2012 (ZON-11678). Note that this project site

was presented at several neighborhood meetings with this zoning action and the site plan presented

herein takes into account the comments made from those meetings. The main point being the

density of the development being 2.82 du/ac and the single access point.

The proposed project includes 33 residential lots on the 11.2 acres, which results in a density of 2.82

dwelling units per acre (du/ac). The minimum lot square footage is 7,877 with a minimum lot width of

74.3 feet. The community will have a gated entrance off of El Campo Grande Avenue. The project

will have private internal streets.

The proposed development is an in-fill piece of property that has existing residential development

on all sides. With the adjacent developments, there are roadways that exist that can support the

additional traffic counts that the proposed 33 additional lots would bring to the area. This project

proposes to improve the adjacent public streets to City of Las Vegas standards.

The development of the project as shown requires a waiver of Title 19. The waiver is for the internal

street section. The proposed street section is 40 feet wide which provides enough width for two way

traffic and for parking on both sides of the street. The section does not include sidewalks. This

proposed gated community is relatively small and will be a low traffic community. The lack of

sidewalks keeps a small intimate feel to the community. Note that the community directly to the north

is gated, has large lots and has the same street section as proposed with this development.

The development of the project as shown requires a variance for the connectivity index. The

presented layout results in a connectivity ratio of 1.13, where 1.3 is required. There will be a

pedestrian connection at Rebecca Road and at El Campo Grade Avenue. With limiting the gated

community to one entrance, the options to gain additional links to meet the required ratio are not

feasible. Additionally, the unique geometry of the site limits options for additional pedestrian and

roadway connections.

Thank you for your consideration of these applications. Please contact me at 284-5300 if you have

any questions regarding these applications.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The subject site consists of three parcels totaling 3.47 acres of land located on the northwest
corner of Hickam Avenue and Helen Avenue. This application is for a Tentative Map for a sixlot single-family residential subdivision. Two Variances and three Waivers are required for this
project. The requested Variances and Waivers are to not provide streetlights or sidewalks
throughout the development, to allow no gate on a private residential street that does not meet
Complete Streets standards and to allow a narrower street intersection offset than code requires.
The density of the proposed development is consistent with the existing General Land Use
designation of DR (Desert Rural Density Residential) and the lot sizes are consistent with
development within a R-E (Residence Estates) zoning district; however, the requested Waivers
and Variances are inappropriate for this rural setting, prompting staff to recommend denial of all
requests. If denied, the current site cannot be developed as proposed.

A Variance is required to deviate from Title 19.04 Complete Street Standards to allow no
gate on a private residential street that does not meet the minimum Complete Streets
standards. Staff does not support this request.
A Waiver is required to deviate from Title 19.04 Complete Street Standards to allow no
sidewalks on a private residential street where such is required. Staff does not support
this request.
A Waiver is required to deviate from Title 19.02.240 to allow no street lights along all
existing and proposed streets. Staff does not support this request.
A Waiver is required to deviate from Title 19.02.140 to allow an external street
intersection to be offset 198 feet where 220 feet is the minimum required. Staff does not
support this request.
A Tentative Map is required subdivide the existing parcels into six single-family
residential lots. Staff does not support this request due to the number of Waivers and
Variances requested.
Single-family housing developments within a R-E (Residence Estates) zoning district do
not have a Connectivity Ratio requirement; however, this projects Connectivity Ration is
1.0, which is below the minimum 1.3 ratio required for other residential zoning districts
throughout the city.

ANALYSIS
This six-lot single-family residential development is consistent with densities allowed in the DR
(Desert Rural Density Residential) Land Use designation and is consistent with some of the
design requirements for Title 19.02 and Title 19.06.060 [R-E (Residence Estates) zoning
district]. The applicant is requesting three Waivers and two Variances from sections of the
development code in conjunction with this Tentative Map application.
Although the Connectivity Ratio is not required for projects within a R-E (Residence Estates)
zoning district this projects Connectivity Ratio is 1.0, which is below the minimum 1.3 ratio
required for other residential zoning districts throughout the city.
Lots range in size from 20,002 square feet to 26,062 square feet, with a minimum lot width of
120 feet. The land use density for this project is 1.72 dwelling units per acre, which is 31 percent
below the allowed density of 2.49 dwelling units per acre. No single-family floor plans are
proposed with this development. The residential floor plans will be reviewed for conformance to
the R-E (Residence Estates) zoning district at the time of permits.
Title 19.04 (Completes Streets standards) requires a private streets to be gated that does not
conform to public streets standards if accompanied by an approved Waiver. The applicant has
requested not to provide a residential street gate on the proposed private street and not to provide
Complete Street standards, as such a Variance is required. Staff does not support the requested
Variance as a street gate can be easily provided.
Code requires sidewalks along public and private streets. The applicant has requested not to
provide any sidewalks to match the existing neighborhood. Existing adjacent conditions consist
of half-street improvements with no sidewalks. This site is located on the northwest corner of
Hickam Avenue and Helen Avenue and is an ideal location to start providing a basic pedestrian
path (a sidewalk). The provided plans illustrate a five-foot area for a future sidewalk along the
private street within the proposed subdivision and a landscape buffer, a five-foot area for a future
sidewalk and a three-foot amenity zone along the public streets (Hickam and Helen Avenue).
Failure to provide sidewalks along public and private streets requires a Variance. Staff does not
support this request, as sidewalks could be provided that conforms to code.
Perimeter landscaping is not required along Hickam Avenue and Helen Avenue; however, trees
are required in the landscape amenity zone and said trees are depicted every 25 feet on center in
conformance with code. The landscape plan is deficient three 24-inch box trees (one tree along
Hickam Avenue and two trees along Helen Avenue); however, a Condition of approval was
added to ensure code compliance. The landscape palette along Hickam and Leon Avenues is
Chilean Mesquite trees accented by Purple Sage and California Justicia shrubs.
Title 19.02 requires street lights to provide appropriate levels of lighting to create adequate
visibility and safety at night. Failure to provide street lights at time of construction requires a

Waiver. There are street lights along Doc Holiday Avenue immediately northeast of this site.
Not providing proper street lighting or reducing night visibility goes against the ideas detailed in
the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) section of the Community
Design Element of the Las Vegas 2020 Master Plan. Staff does not support the requested
Waiver.
A Waiver is required to allow a street intersection offset 198 feet where 220 feet is required.
Public Works has no objection to it; however, staff does not support this request. The shortened
street intersection offset reduces vehicle response time for traffic exiting south from the proposed
subdivision along Helen Avenue. The reduced night time visibility and short street offset could
create an unsafe environment for pedestrians.
Public Works noted the when a site is developed in the City of Las Vegas, it is customary to
require the installation of all incomplete or damaged improvements surrounding the site so they
match what exists in the surrounding area. City Council has discretion to allow for the deferral of
these improvements, and approval of Variance (VAR-57010) will direct Public Works to allow
deferral in this area.
The submitted north/south cross section show a maximum natural grade less than 2% across this
site. Per the Tables in Subdivision Code 19.06.060 a development with natural slope less than or
equal to 2% is allowed a maximum four-foot retaining wall. A two-foot maximum retaining wall
is shown along the north and south property lines.
The submitted east/west cross section show a maximum natural grade of greater than 2% across
this site. Per the Tables in Subdivision Code 19.06.060 a development with natural slope greater
than 2% is allowed a maximum six-foot retaining wall. A three-foot maximum retaining wall is
shown along the east property line and no retaining wall is shown along the west property line.
The Clark County School District has commented that the proposed development would add
approximately four students in Grades K-12 to area schools. Currently, Parson Elementary,
Swainston Middle School and Cheyenne High School are operating under or near capacity.
In summation, the density and lot layouts of the proposed development are consistent with the
surrounding community; however, the number of required Waivers and Variances highlight the
unsuitability of this project. For these reasons, staff recommends denial of this project.
FINDINGS (VAR-57017)
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.

Staff Report Page Eight
January 13, 2015 - 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.
No evidence of a unique or extraordinary circumstance has been presented, in that the applicant
has created a self-imposed hardship by not providing sidewalks along public and private streets
and not providing a vehicle gate on a private street that does meet Title 19.04 standards.
Alternatively, street lights, sidewalks and a private street gate could be provided in 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-57009)
Failure to provide a safe pedestrian path (a sidewalk) goes against basic sustainable community
design and therefore staff recommends denial of this request; however, if approved subject to
conditions.
FINDINGS (WVR-57212)
Not providing street lights along public and private streets is a community safety hazard. The
separation distance between the intersection of proposed street and Hickam Avenue fails to meet
code requirements and could create an environment where pedestrian and vehicular conflicts
occur. Staff recommends denial of this Waiver, as low night visibility and the shortened distance
between street intersections could be public safety hazard; however, if approved subject to
conditions.
FINDINGS (TMP-57007)
The proposed map is not in conformance with Title 19 and the requested Variances and Waivers
reinforce the unsuitability of this project at this location. The absence of street lights, sidewalks
and shortened street intersection offset may pose safety risks to the general public. Staff
therefore recommends denial of the proposed Tentative Map; however, if approved subject to
conditions.

** STAFF REPORT **
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The subject site consists of one parcel totaling 4.69 acres of land located on the northwest corner
of Hickam Avenue and Leon Avenue. This application is for a Tentative Map for an eight-lot
single-family residential subdivision. Two Variances and three Waivers are required for this
project. The requested Variances and Waivers are to not provide streetlights or sidewalks
throughout the development, to allow no gate on a private residential street that does not meet
Complete Streets standards and to allow a narrower street intersection offset than code requires.
The density of the proposed development is consistent with the existing General Land Use
designation of DR (Desert Rural Density Residential) and the lot sizes are consisted with
development within a R-E (Residence Estates) zoning district; however, the requested Waivers
and Variances are inappropriate for this rural setting, prompting staff to recommend denial of all
requests. If denied, the current site cannot be developed as proposed.

A Waiver is required to deviate from Title 19.02.140 to allow an external street
intersection to be offset 194 feet where 220 feet is the minimum required. Staff does not
support this request.
A Tentative Map is required to subdivide the existing parcel into eight single-family
residential lots. Staff does not support this request due to the number of Waivers and
Variances requested.
Single-family housing developments within a R-E (Residence Estates) zoning district do
not have a Connectivity Ratio requirement; however, this projects Connectivity Ration is
1.0, which is below the minimum 1.3 ratio required for other residential zoning districts
throughout the city.

ANALYSIS
This eight-lot single-family residential development is consistent with densities allowed in the
DR (Desert Rural Density Residential) land use designation and is consistent with some of the
design requirements for Title 19.02 and Title 19.06.060 [R-E (Residence Estates) zoning
district]. The applicant is requesting three Waivers and two Variances from sections of the
development code in conjunction with this Tentative Map application.
Although the Connectivity Ratio is not required for projects within a R-E (Residence Estates)
zoning district this projects Connectivity Ratio is 1.0, which is below the minimum 1.3 ratio
required for other residential zoning districts throughout the city.
Lots range in size from 20,009 square feet to 27,281 square feet, with a minimum lot width of
110 feet. The land use density for this project is 1.7 dwelling units per acre, which is 31 percent
below the allowed density of 2.49 dwelling units per acre. No single-family floor plans are
proposed with this development. The residential floor plans will be reviewed for conformance to
the R-E (Residence Estates) zoning district at the time of permits.
Title 19.04 (Complete Streets standards) requires a private streets to be gated that does not
conform to public street standards if accompanied by a Waiver. The applicant has requested not
to provide a residential street gate on the proposed private street and not to provide Complete
Street standards, as such a Variance is required. Staff does not support the requested Variance as
a street gate can be easily provided.
Code requires sidewalks along public and private streets. The applicant has requested not to
provide any sidewalks to match the existing neighborhood. There are street lights along the north
end of Leon Avenue. This site is located on the northwest corner of Hickam Avenue and Leon
Avenue and is an ideal location to start providing a basic pedestrian path (a sidewalk). The
provided plans illustrate a five-foot area for a future sidewalk along the private street within the
proposed subdivision and a landscape buffer, a five-foot area for a future sidewalk and a threefoot amenity zone along the public streets (Hickam and Leon Avenue). Failure to provide
sidewalks along public and private streets requires a Variance. Staff does not support this
request, as sidewalks could be provided that conforms to code.
Perimeter landscaping is not required along Hickam Avenue and Leon Avenue; however, trees
are required in the landscape amenity zone and said trees are depicted every 25 feet on center in
conformance with code. The landscape plan is deficient two 24-inch box trees (one along
Hickam Avenue and one along Leon Avenue); however, a Condition of approval was added to
ensure code compliance. The landscape palette along Hickam and Leon Avenues is Chilean
Mesquite trees accented by Purple Sage and California Justicia shrubs.
Title 19.02 requires street lights to provide appropriate levels of lighting to create adequate
visibility and safety at night. Failure to provide street lights at time of construction requires a
Waiver. Not providing proper street lighting or reducing night visibility goes against the ideas
detailed in the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) section of the
MR

Staff Report Page Seven
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting
Community Design Element of the Las Vegas 2020 Master Plan. Staff does not support the
requested Waiver.
A Waiver is required to allow a street intersection offset 194 feet where 220 feet is required.
Public Works has no objection to it; however, staff does not support this request. The shortened
street intersection offset reduces vehicle response time for traffic exiting south from the proposed
subdivision along Leon Avenue. The reduced night time visibility and short street offset could
create an unsafe environment for pedestrians.
Public Works noted that all incomplete half street improvements, including sidewalks are
required adjacent to any new development. However, this development is in an area where
sidewalks are not customary. City Council has discretion to allow for the deferral of these
improvements, and approval of Variance (VAR-57017) will direct Public Works to allow
deferral in this area.
The submitted north/south cross section shows a maximum natural grade less than 2% across this
site. Per the Tables in Subdivision Code 19.06.060 a development with natural slope less than or
equal to 2% is allowed a maximum four-foot retaining wall. A two-foot maximum retaining wall
is shown along the north property lines and no retaining wall is shown along the south property
line.
The submitted east/west cross section show a maximum natural grade less than 2% across this
site. Per the Tables in Subdivision Code 19.06.060 a development with natural slope less than or
equal to 2% is allowed a maximum four-foot retaining wall. A three-foot maximum retaining
wall is shown along the west property line and no retaining wall is shown along the east property
line.
The Clark County School District has commented that the proposed development would add
approximately four students in Grades K-12 to area schools. Currently, Parson Elementary,
Swainston Middle School and Cheyenne High School are operating under or near capacity.
In summation, the density and lot layouts of the proposed development are consistent with the
surrounding community; however, the number of required Waivers and Variances highlight the
unsuitability of this project. For these reasons, staff recommends denial of this project.
FINDINGS (VAR-57017)
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 providing sidewalks along public and private streets
and not providing a vehicle gate on a private street that does meet Title 19.04 standards.
Alternatively, street lights, sidewalks and a private street gate could be provided in 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-57018)
Failure to provide a safe pedestrian path (a sidewalk) goes against basic sustainable community
design and therefore staff recommends denial of this request; however, if approved subject to
conditions.

FINDINGS (WVR-57213)
Not providing street lights along public and private streets is a community safety hazard. The
separation distance between the intersection of proposed street and Hickam Avenue fails to meet
code requirements and could create an environment where pedestrian and vehicular conflicts
occur. Staff recommends denial of this Waiver, as low night visibility and the shortened distance
between street intersections could be a public safety hazard; however, if approved subject to
conditions.

FINDINGS (TMP-57025)
The proposed map is not in conformance with Title 19 and the requested Variances and Waivers
reinforce the unsuitability of this project at this location. The absence of street lights, sidewalks
and shortened street intersection offset may pose safety risks to the general public. Staff
therefore recommends denial of the proposed Tentative Map; however, if approved subject to
conditions.

these capacities are expected to remain unchanged. Counts are not available for Hickham, Helen or Leon, but they are
believed to be under capacity.
Based on Peak Hour use, this project will add about 8 trips in the peak hour, or about two every fifteen minutes.
Note that this report assumes all traffic from this development uses all named streets.

** STAFF REPORT **

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
This is a request for possible action to update the Downtown Centennial Plan and Symphony
Park Design Standards to add the Commercial Recreation/Amusement (Outdoor) use to the
Parkway Center District and Symphony Park Sub-District to allow for a possible stadium
development.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Related Relevant City Actions by P&D, Fire, Bldg., etc.
The City Council adopted the Symphony Park Design Standards and related
08/04/10
design documents through Ordinance #6102.
The City Council adopted an updated Symphony Park Design Standards
04/02/14
Manual through Ordinance #6311.
The City Council approved the Second Amendment of the Exclusive
Negotiation Agreement and Predevelopment Schedule for financing and
12/17/14
development of a proposed soccer stadium within Symphony Park.

ANALYSIS
The proposed amendment would introduce the Commercial Recreation/Amusement (Outdoor)
use, which is already established in LVMC Title 19, as a permitted use in the Parkway Center
District. The Symphony Park Design Standards would also be amended to add this use to the list
of permitted uses within Symphony Park, as the two lists are separate and contain different uses.
The definitions of land uses included in the Downtown Centennial Plan and the Symphony Park
Design Standards (or their equivalents) are listed in Title 19.18. The term Commercial
Recreation/Amusement (Outdoor) is defined as an outdoor facility or area for sport,
entertainment, games of skill or recreation that is open to use by the general public for a fee. The
term includes without limitation game courts, water slides, golf courses, outdoor miniature golf
courses, drive-in theaters, batting cages, practice/instructional fields, amusements parks,
amphitheaters and sports events. While the primary impetus behind adding this use in Parkway
Center is to allow for a proposed soccer stadium, approval of this amendment would allow for a
broader range of fee-based recreational activities to be offered.

Staff Report Page Two
January 13, 2015 - Planning Commission Meeting

The Parkway Center standards already allow for Sports Stadium as a permitted use; however,
this term is not defined in Title 19 and does not allow for the same broad range of recreational
uses that Commercial Recreation/Amusement (Outdoor) does. In order to eliminate confusion,
the term Sports Stadium is proposed to be deleted from the Parkway Center District use table
and replaced by the Commercial Recreation/Amusement (Outdoor) use. The Symphony Park
Design Standards Manual has not previously listed Commercial Recreation/Amusement
(Outdoor) as a permitted use; therefore, it is now included.

FINDINGS
The proposed text amendment is intended to achieve the following:
x
x
x

Permit use of land within Symphony Park for a proposed sports stadium and other feebased outdoor recreational activities.
Increase the viability of the Parkway Center District (and Symphony Park Sub-District by
reference) by permitting an increased range of uses.
Clarify that permitted uses listed in the Symphony Park Design Standards apply only to
Symphony Park, thereby eliminating confusion with the uses permitted for Parkway
Center.
