E-1 SUP-17-131*For Possible Action: To consider a request for a Special Use Permit from Donald Gurney (property owner: Donald Gurney) to convert an art studio into a guest building, on property zoned Single Family 6000 (SF6), located at 608 Chernus Drive, APN 001-045-13. (Kathe Green)
Summary: The applicant is requesting to convert an existing building currently used as an art studio into a guest building for use by family members. A deed restriction would limit the use to family members and non-paying guests and prohibit it from being used as a secondary rental unit.
E-2 SUP-17-136* For Possible Action: To consider a request for a Special Use Permit from Spear and Phillips LLC (property owner: John Block) to allow the expansion of a non-conforming use, specifically a multi-family residential use, on property zoned Single Family 6000 (SF6) located at 504 Phillips Street, APN 003-243-04. (Hope Sullivan) Late Material
Summary: The subject property currently has four dwellings in the primary building. The applicant is requesting to change the configuration of the dwellings to have three dwellings in the primary building, and convert the existing storage area above the garage to a 765 square foot dwelling for the fourth unit. As the use was lawfully established and multi-family residential uses are not permitted in the SF6 zoning district, the use is considered a non-conforming use. Per the provisions of CCMC 18.04.030, a non-conforming use may only be expanded by Special Use Permit.
E-3 SUP-17-132*For Possible Action: To consider a request for a Special Use Permit from Kent Skogerson (property owner: Kent Skogerson) to allow a Multi-Family Residential use, on property zoned Residential Office (RO), located at 550 W Washington Street, APN 001-201-24. (Hope Sullivan)
Summary: The applicant is requesting to convert the existing office building into five multi-family dwellings with minimal exterior alterations on a 0.34 acre site. Multi-Family dwellings are a conditional use in the RO zoning district, and allowed subject to the approval of a Special Use Permit.
E-4 ZCA-16-199 REVISED For Possible Action: To make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors regarding an ordinance amending Title 18, Zoning, Chapter 18.03, Definitions, Section 18.03.010 words and terms defined, to modify the definition of “Dwelling, Single-Family” and the definition of “Single-Family Dwelling”, and other matters properly related thereto.
Summary: The Planning Commission considered this Ordinance at its meeting of February 22, 2017. The Ordinance was not presented to the Board of Supervisors as the Nevada Legislature was considering a modification to the definition of “Single Family Residence.” The proposed language will create consistency with Senate Bill 477 enacted during the 2017 Nevada Legislative Session.
E-5 ZCA-17-157For Possible Action: To make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors regarding an Ordinance amending Title 18, Zoning, Chapter 18.05, General Provisions, Section 18.05.080, to revise the standards of “Wind Energy Conversion Systems;” and providing other matters properly related thereto.
Summary: The intent of this Ordinance is to modify the standards applied to Wind Energy Conversion Systems for consistency with Senate Bill 314 enacted during the 2017 Nevada Legislative Session.
