Tamara Swann, Deputy Regional Administrator for the Western Pacific Region at the Federal Aviation Administration, advised that the Las Vegas Metroplex is part of the modernization of the entire United States air transportation system; modernized the flow of air traffic, emphasized safety, increased efficiency, and improved environmental performance; introduced approximately 40 new satellite-based procedures; and delays included the government shut-down and COVID0-19 protocols. Jim Arrighi, Airspace Modernization Team Manager and the National Metroplex Program Manager at the Federal Aviation Administration, presented an implementation overview; military air space surrounded the constrained air space; implemented standard instrument departure which was accurate and repeatable; fourteen standardization terminal arrival procedures provided an optimized fuel efficient descent and more fuel efficiency, quieter arrival procedures, provided connectivity to the runway, and incorporated five lower altitude runways; implemented the overlay of the Required Navigation Performance Procedure which was the first in the nation and improved arrival efficiency; discussed implementation challenges; airport databases; flight plan filing; assessed and corrected the incorrect implementation of procedures identified by community feedback; reviewed the post-implementation analysis; and evaluated the overall estimates of fuel burn improvement, distance savings, and decrease in time flown; recognition and awards for the Las Vegas Metroplex; and recognized the passing of Charles ‘Charlie’ Hall. Commissioner Naft expressed concerns regarding the FAA policy of not discussing the details of the matter directly with impacted residents; the traffic overheard exceeds the promises made by the FAA at multiple public meetings and with County staff and stakeholders; the FAA neglected to notify residents and constituents that General Aviation (GA) aircraft included commercial aircraft and airbuses chartered by groups, including sports teams, which produced the same impact on residents and the environment as commercial flights, and which has continued to increase in intensity. In response to Commissioner Naft, Jim Arrighi advised that the Las Vegas Metroplex Project was closed, and reevaluation opportunities to request changes to procedures may be submitted through the regular FAA procedure development system; and further advised that the FAA meets with broad based community boards. Discussion between the Board, Tamara Swann, and Jim Arrighi continued regarding the FAA’s policy to not meet with individual neighbors and homeowner associations due to a lack of resources, manpower, and the possibility that additional neighbors or homeowners may be left out of the discussions; public meetings were held to discuss neighbor’s concerns during the Metroplex Project; weather, specifically wind, impacting the use of specific runways and increasing incorrect usage issues; assessment of inappropriate use of the procedure; the FAA corrective action was to follow-up with the airline who requested the departure to confirm the request was operationally necessary or dictated by wind; the Las Vegas Metroplex project was implemented tenth across the nation; the Metroplex Project improved the efficiency of airspace in the Las Vegas area; the benefit of decreasing conflict across the runways, and to the air traffic tower, in comparison to the impact to the neighborhoods; the FAA will only meet with the community as a whole; and the impacted neighbors were involved and raised concerns from the beginning of the Metroplex Project.

Agenda note: DOCUMENT(S) SUBMITTED: 1. Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Ordinance Update (26 pages), submitted by the Clark County Department of Environment and Sustainability DISCUSSION: Following introduction of the item, the Board was addressed by Marci Henson, Director of the Clark County Department of Environment and Sustainability, who advised that All-In Clark County was enacted to address climate change and create a more sustainable future for all; three parts of the planning process included: assessing regional sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions contributing to climate change, confirming climate hazards and the areas and systems most vulnerable and identifying solutions to enhance the community’s overall resilience, and to grow climate literacy in the community and work together to develop a plan of action to ensure a sustainable and resilient future for all; one of the six key areas of focus was connected and equitable mobility, which included transportation, reducing GHG emissions, and improving air quality; on road emissions accounted for 22 percent of all GHGs; the Nevada Climate Initiative adopted goals including reducing GHG emissions; next steps included finishing the GHG Inventory, finishing the Climate Vulnerability Assessment, engaging public involvement to draft an All-In Community Sustainability and Climate Action Plan, and exploring opportunities to work with agencies and stakeholders to reduce GHGs that result in a regional approach; moving forward regionally is most effective for reducing the emissions and seizing funding opportunities; an electric vehicle (EV) ordinance would improve air quality, improve public health, and reduce GHG emissions; needed actions included reduced car dependency, increased mobility options, and electrified transportation; EVs are increasing in market share, major manufacturers were shifting production to EVs, Clean Cars Nevada, and Senate Bill 448 required NVEnergy to make an investment in EV infrastructure; barriers to electrification being removed, proactively position the County for the future, and avoid future building retrofit costs; 80 percent of EV drivers charge their cars at home; options included EV-Capable, EV-Ready, and EV-Installed; EV infrastructure ordinance included the scope of which structures (including single family residences, multi-family residences, and commercial) and the requirements (including which options and the number of parking spots per unit); there is no lead transportation electrification authority; total energy infrastructure costs are not easily calculated or understood; the current NVEnergy grids were almost at capacity during the last two summers due to the impacts of climate change; NVEnergy and developers requested consistency across jurisdictions; next steps included hiring a transportation electrification consultant, establishing an All-In Clark County Transportation Electrification Working Group (TEWG), developing a regional electrification strategy to present to the Board in December 2022, projecting EV and charging demand, recommending regional EV infrastructure and charging development needs, and recommendations on a model EV infrastructure ordinance, costs and strategies for funding, and economic and workforce development opportunities. Discussion continued regarding grant funding, incentive programs, AB349 which revised provisions governing motor vehicles, industry experts, lithium battery recycling, the workforce component, and diversification of the community.

21-1642 43.Receive a report from the Fire Department for revised boundaries of the Ambulance Franchise agreement; and direct staff accordingly. (For possible action)

Agenda note: DOCUMENT(S) SUBMITTED: 1. Unincorporated Clark County Call Efficiency Analysis (18 pages), submitted by Applied Analysis SPEAKER(S): Present DISCUSSION: Following introduction of the item, the Board was addressed by Deputy Fire Chief Wyatt who presented the proposed map which addressed that the southwest part of the Valley experienced an increased call volume, a nationwide staffing shortage, and compliance with the franchise agreement; added a Zone eight; Zones seven and eight proposed to move to Community Ambulance; Zones one and two will remain with American Medical Response (AMR); and Zones five and six will remain with MedicWest; and the zones were divided into equal call volumes as much as possible; and each franchisee within the agreement was given approximately 33 percent. Commissioner Naft advised that the proposed was fair in response to the data provided by Clark County Fire. Commissioner Kirkpatrick expressed concern regarding topics including constructing hundreds of homes with the lack of services, insufficient resources, and the workforce shortage. Discussion continued regarding topics including monthly studies reports; diversion reports; the call volume increased approximately six percent every year; the franchise agreement; check for compliance on a yearly basis and rezoning; hospitals are the patient’s choice; shortage of resources, including staffing; the pilot program and franchisee performance; and meeting the needs of the community. Deputy Fire Chief Wyatt advised that the fire department was a hazard response entity and responds to all incidents; calls were prioritized into five categories which determined the speed, lights, and sirens needed to respond to the incident site; and used Computer-Aided Design (CAD) to reduce the patient wait time for transportation to the hospital. Damon Schilling, Government Community Affairs Manager for AMR, advised of participating in the pilot program which resulted in AMR failing to meet the minimum standards, while Community Ambulance did not take part in the pilot program; the stakeholders and administrators never evaluated the data from the pilot program, AMR conveyed the data to Applied Analysis for review; staffing challenges and sick employees added to the challenging situation; dividing the zones based on call volume was fundamentally flawed as other factors needed to be taken into consideration; recommended that the territory should not be divided, the pilot program had unintended consequences, and the data suggests alternatives to improve the system and patient outcomes; and further advised that AMR was working to recruit staff and experienced difficulty obtaining ambulances and other assets. In response to Commissioner Miller, Damon Schilling advised that the four additional minutes to respond were applied to lower acuity calls; and recommended that the response time not be changed, the resource requirements be changed, and lower acuity calls be directed to Emergency Medical Technician services. The Board was addressed by Brian Gordon, from Applied Analysis, who advised that the issue was defining priorities, including priority four calls going without lights or sirens; call volumes; time spent on cancelled calls; inefficiency; reallocation of resources; analyzed the amount of time spent on cancellations related to the reclassification of those calls and the additional capacity that would exist in the system; and the excess time beyond compliance specifically for those priority four calls and the time it translated into, which was approximately 122 hours overall, in the amount of inefficiency in the system. Discussion followed regarding topics including diversification of the map zones; recruiting and retaining employees; cancelled calls; how the pilot program impacted the inability of the companies to meet the criteria; examine dispatched resources and alternatives; priority four calls; and the increased volume of cancelled calls. Damon Schilling expressed that the division of the response area was not the solution and recommended a reallocation of the resources dispatched to calls as an alternative solution. Deputy Fire Chief Wyatt advised that there is no way to know the severity of the call or if a patient will want to be transported via ambulance until the unit is on scene; need to respond to all calls regardless of the priority; discussed types of cancelled calls; and recommended proceeding under the franchise agreement with reallocating the zones. Commissioner Kirkpatrick advised of various factors influencing the calls including growth, social-economic, areas with higher traffic, and ability to pay; and recommended reviewing more frequently. Staff was directed to provide the Board with updated numbers for the previous month as available.

21-1647 44.Discuss the possible addition of a Clark County Motor Vehicle Rental Code (Chapter 6) to ensure public safety; add definitions; and clarify the requirements and responsibilities of a motor vehicle rental licensee that provides the rental of exotic vehicles and/or autocycles as a line of service. (For possible action)

Agenda note: DISCUSSION: Following introduction of the item, Commissioner Naft advised that exotic vehicle rentals were responsible for ten percent of traffic accident fatalities in Clark County. The Board was addressed by Andrew Bennett, from the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety which was a Division of Nevada State Police, who advised that speed was an issue on Nevada’s roadways; estimated that eight to twelve percent of Clark County fatal crashes involved a rented “luxury or exotic” vehicle; needed a definition of “luxury or exotic;” vehicles over 500 horsepower; speed and/or impairment was a factor in 95 percent of these crashes; and technology was available which may have prevented a majority of these crashes. In response to Commissioner Jones and Gibson, Andrew Bennett advised that there was a need for more enforcement, education, and engineering to mitigate speed as a factor in fatal crashes. Discussion followed regarding education, training, discussions were held with Business Licensing, costs associated with the road closures due to the emergency response to the crash, and responsibility for the costs. Staff was directed to draft an ordinance regarding exotic car rentals; and work with stakeholders on the parameters of the ordinance including speed, horsepower, impairment, technology, and liability.
