(For possible action) DOCUMENT(S): Submitted Master Plan Changes – Read into the record (5 pages) submitted by staff. SPEAKER(S): Present DISCUSSION: Following introduction of the item, Mario Bermudez, Planning Manager with Comprehensive Planning, presented a brief timeline of the project, which started in January 2020; numerous meetings had been held throughout 2020 and 2021 with the Board, stakeholders, and the Planning Commissioners and advised that a public hearing was requested to adopt the update to the Master Plan. Darcy White, Director with Clarion Associates, advised that a parallel process would be the update to Title 30, which was scheduled to be completed by the end of 2022; spoke regarding a timeline which commenced at the start of the pandemic; feedback was provided by stakeholders and the public; desire for a more predictable and understandable plan; detailed the core components of the master plan; the plan was organized around six core values; NRS 278.160 required the master plan to include eight topical elements with sub-topics; duplicative information was streamlined; goals and policies were updated; side-bar, maps, and graphics were added; a growth framework was detailed, including infrastructure and services; 11 sets of land use categories were consolidated into one for ease of use; spoke of five land use categories; substantive changes to the land use map were not contemplated through the subject process but would occur through future updates to the individual land use plans; spoke regarding area-specific goals, policies, and regulatory language, and advised that some regulations would be transferred to Title 30; major initiatives would be both County-led and County-supported; and any changes to the amendment process would need to be adopted in Title 30. Responding to questions from the Board, Mr. Bermudez detailed various changes to the Master Plan that had been approved by Comprehensive Planning. Bob Gronauer, representing the Southern Nevada Homebuilders Association, requested land use plans be updated on a more consistent basis; address infill development, and the protection of Rural Neighborhood Preservation (RNP) areas. Commissioner Gibson advised to strongly incentivize infill development; review what would qualify as infill development; and spoke of the encouragement for the aggregation of larger parcels for master-planned communities. Commissioner Kirkpatrick requested the deletion of the word also from Page 266 of the Master Plan changes.
