H-1 AB-11-026 Action to make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors regarding an application for an Abandonment of Public Right-of-Way from CSA Engineers (property owner: State of Nevada) to abandon the right-of-way on property located at Anderson Street between East Second and East Third Streets. (Kathe Green)
Summary: This request is to abandon the right-of-way adjacent to these parcels to accommodate future planned improvements to the adjacent State of Nevada property which would be within the existing Anderson Street right-of-way area. This area has not been improved as a street.
H-2 SUP-11-028 Action to consider a Special Use Permit request from Kelly Clark (property owner: Gary Hitt) to allow the construction of detached accessory structures in excess of 75 percent of primary structure on property zoned Single Family 1 Acre (SF1A), located at 525 East Roventini Way, APN 009-174-01. (Kathe Green)
Summary: The applicant is requesting an additional detached accessory structure on the site. A special use permit is required if accessory structures exceed 75% of the size of the primary structure. The size of the primary structure is 904 square feet (sf). The proposed accessory structure of 1080 sf (30x36), added to the existing detached accessory structure of 336 sf, would result in 1416 sf or 157% of the size of the primary structure in accessory structures on the site.
H-3(A) ZMA-11-030 Plans Action to make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors on a Zoning Map Amendment application from AT&T on behalf of the Carson City Parks and Recreation Department (property owner: Carson City Parks and Recreation) to change the zoning from Single Family 6000 (SF6) to Public Community (PC), on property located on Northridge Dr. at Winnie and Roop, APN 002-101-81. (Jennifer Pruitt)
Summary: As a result of the proposed ZMA the subject parcel will have a zoning designation which is consistent with the existing Master Plan. This zoning designation is consistent with other property owned by Carson City and managed by the Parks and Recreation Department. This Zoning Map Amendment would allow a 625 square foot portion of the 18 acre site to be developed for the proposed cellular communication facility for AT&T. Freestanding cellular communication facilities are prohibited in the Single Family 6000 zoning district. This application is being processed concurrently with SUP-11-029.
H-3(B) SUP-11-029 Plans Action to consider a Special Use Permit request from AT&T (property owner: Carson City Parks and Recreation) to allow the construction of a telecommunications facility on property located on Northridge Drive at Winnie and Roop, APN 002-101-81. (Jennifer Pruitt)
Summary: The applicant is proposing a cellular communication facility for AT&T on a small portion of the 18 acre site known as Lone Mountain. The project includes a 625 square foot (25 foot by 25 foot) platform with 12 platform-mounted antennas with a maximum height of 20 feet on the southwestern portion of the subject site. This Special Use Permit application is being processed concurrently with ZMA-11-030. If the ZMA is approved, the SUP will be required to allow the proposed cellular communications facility in the Public Community zoning district.
H-4(A) SUP-11-027 part 1 part 2 part 3 Action to consider a Special Use Permit request from Mike Mitchell and Susan Dorr (property owner: Carson City School District) to allow for building expansion, site improvements and floor plan modifications on property zoned Public (P), located at Eagle Valley Middle School, 4151 East Fifth Street, APN 010-035-27. (Jennifer Pruitt)
Summary: The School District is proposing to construct a new gymnasium with associated locker rooms and new administrative offices to the existing Eagle Valley Middle School in addition to site improvements to the campus. All uses and development standards relating to setbacks and height in the Public zoning district require approval of a Special Use Permit.
H-4(B) VAR-11-031 part 1 part 2 part 3 Action to consider a Variance request from Mike Mitchell and Susan Dorr (property owner: Carson City School District) to reduce the required number of parking spaces in conjunction with the expansion of the school buildings at Eagle Valley Middle School, in Public (P) zoning, located at 4151 East Fifth Street, APN 009-174-01. (Jennifer Pruitt)
Summary: School District is proposing to construct a new gymnasium with associated locker rooms and new administrative offices to the existing Eagle Valley Middle School as part of the 2010 School Bond initiative. Additional parking is proposed, but the number of spaces would be less than the number required under current Municipal Code guidelines.
