PUBLIC HEARING: 
10.B For Possible Action: A hearing to consider a petition from downtown property owners to establish a Neighborhood Improvement District (NID) pursuant to Chapter 271 of Nevada Revised Statutes for the purpose of paying for maintenance of the Downtown Streetscape Enhancement Project, which includes improvements to Carson Street between Fifth Street and William Street, improvements to Third Street between Carson Street and Curry Street, and improvements to Curry Street between Musser Street and Robinson Street.

Staff Summary: NRS 271.285 allows a petition signed by owners of tracts constituting at least one-half of the basis used for computation of assessments to be sufficient to initiate procedures for implementing a NID, and such petition has been submitted to the Carson City Planning Division. NRS 271.290 requires the Board of Supervisors to hold a public hearing on the petition to consider objections and any other information. Any owner of real property or tenant who resides or owns a business located within the proposed NID may present, orally or in writing, the reasons why he or she believes that the petition does not contain a sufficient number of qualified signatures, or that the Board of Supervisors cannot reasonably make the finding that the public interest will benefit by the provision of the proposed improvements within that part of the municipality with consideration of the differences it finds between the city as a whole and the territory within and adjacent to the proposed improvement district. The proposed NID includes private properties generally located along Carson Street and Curry Street between Fifth Street and William Street, and on Plaza Street between Proctor Street and William Street. An ordinance to establish the NID is included as a separate item on the Board of Supervisors agenda.

Staff Summary: The purpose of establishing the NID is to assess the private property owners within the area for the cost of ongoing maintenance of the Downtown Streetscape Enhancement Project improvements to provide for consistent maintenance of the improvements. The proposed NID includes private properties generally located along Carson Street and Curry Street between Fifth Street and William Street, and on Plaza Street between Proctor Street and William Street.

11. Public Works

11.A For Possible Action: To adopt a Resolution determining that the new Third Street Plaza be named after Bob McFadden. (Darren Schulz, dschulz@carson.org)

Staff Summary: Bob McFadden loved Carson City. He was especially enthralled with the rich tradition and true Americana that is the Capital of Nevada. As a history buff, real estate expert, collector of anything Nevada from fine art and rare bottles to Casino memorabilia, Bob was a true visionary. He saw the potential in restoring dilapidated historical buildings and homes from the 1800's forward and their surrounding commercial districts. Bob's revitalization of the St. Charles Hotel, 3rd and Carson, the Desert Air Motel and the Krebs-Peterson Mansion are just a few examples of the accomplishments of a man with great love for his community. For this reason and so many more, it is with great pride and appreciation for all of his efforts in bringing back Carson City to its original boom-town luster, that a memorial area where Families, Friends, and City Leaders can gather and reflect on the greatness of Carson City, Nevada. This location shall be deservedly named the Bob McFadden Plaza.
