This agreement terminates on June 30, 2012.

12. Public Works - Planning and Zoning

A) For Possible Action: To adopt Bill No. 101, on second reading, an ordinance amending the Carson City Municipal Code Title 18 Zoning, Chapter 18.16, Development Standards Division 4, Signs, by amending Section 4.4, Administration, 4.4.7, Exemptions, to modify the time limits and placement regulations for temporary on-site advertising devices, and other matters properly related thereto. (ZCA-12-140) (Lee Plemel)

Staff Summary: The Board of Supervisors adopted an ordinance on January 2009, to temporarily eliminate time limits for the display of banners advertising on-site businesses, then "renewed" the ordinance in 2010 and 2011 to extend the provisions through December 2012. The purpose of the ordinance was to grant sign enforcement relief to business owners during difficult economic times, particularly for retail businesses, in order to help increase taxable sales and services in the City. The ordinance was adopted on a limited trial basis in order to assess the effects of less restrictive temporary sign regulations and determine if these regulations should be continued, modified or rescinded. On January 1, 2013, the code section will revert back to the original verbiage unless otherwise modified by a new ordinance.

B) For Possible Action: To introduce, on first reading, an ordinance approving a development agreement between Carson City and CNM Family, LLC, regarding the development of a commercial subdivision known as Arrowhead Business Park, located on Ryan Way, Assessors Parcel Numbers 005-072-05 and -06, to extend the approval of the tentative subdivision map, and other matters properly related thereto.
