4/21/2021 Clark County Zoning Commission Approved

Agenda note: SUBJECT MATTER/RECOMMENDATION: In the matter of the recommendation of the Planning Commission that the Board approve the aforementioned described application of Apollo Property Holdings, LLC, Et Al & George 2004 Trust (George Gekakis, Inc.) for a zone change, use permits, waivers of development standards, and design reviews (as indicated on the ATTACHED agenda item) (held from March 16, 2021): REPRESENTATIVE(S): Present DISCUSSION: There being no objections, Item No. 43 was heard in conjunction with Item No. 44. Following introduction of Item Nos. 43 and 44, staff advised that the project was of regional significance because the County had an interlocal agreement with all of the local jurisdictions regarding the proximity of projects, and the City of Las Vegas was across Sahara Avenue from the project. The Board was addressed by Bob Gronauer, the applicant’s representative, who advised that the applicant has constructed senior living housing for approximately 27 years in Clark County; designs, entitles, builds, owns, and manages the multi-family developments; held four neighborhood meetings; approximately 4.5 acres; fronts onto Sahara Avenue; advised of working with the Westwood Home Owners Association to the south; office-commercial was to the east; a mini-storage facility to the west; an in-fill property; staff recommended approval of the zone change; referenced an Executive Summary from NAIOP (the Commercial Real Estate Development Association) which found that there is a scarcity of land in Southern Nevada; a report from Senators Catherine Cortez Masto and Jacky Rosen found that there is a shortage of attainable low-income housing; each year the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) measures the availability of affordable housing and presents findings in the Gap Report, the study found that Nevada has the fewest affordable and available rental homes in the country; the need for affordable housing for seniors is projected to increase; discussed increasing office and commercial vacancy rates; further advised that staff recommended approval for the non-conforming zone change because the project meets several County goals and policies; referenced multi-family projects on major arterial streets and adjacent to commercial properties; discussed pedestrian and vehicle access to Laredo Street; proposed an eight foot high wall on Laredo Street as a buffer with 36 inch box trees ten foot on center; the trash enclosures to be installed away from Laredo Street; line-of-sight to the neighbor’s backyards; building height was reduced in response to neighbor’s concerns, and are compatible with the neighborhood; and the Spring Valley Town Board and Planning Commission recommended approval. Discussion followed regarding the funding limit for only senior housing; the need for affordable housing; and removal of the condition regarding pedestrian gates and to permit Pine trees.
