(ZMA-10-087) (Lee Plemel)

Summary: The proposed amendments would make the zoning consistent with the actual public use of the landfill and surrounding properties, and will be consistent with the proposed land uses pursuant to the lands bill that will transfer ownership of the properties from the BLM to Carson City. Property acreage noted above is approximate. This application is being processed concurrently with MPA-10-086.

B) Action to approve a Master Plan Amendment application to modify the Land Use Map designation of property located in and around the vicinity of the Carson City Landfill, Flint Drive area, changing an approximate 15 acre portion of APN 8-011-19 east of the V&T Railroad track from Public Conservation to Public/Quasi-Public, changing APN 8-521-20 from Public Conservation (311 acres) and Mixed-Use Commercial (65 acres) to Public/Quasi-Public (193 acres), Open Space (135 acres) and Mixed-Use Commercial (48 acres), and changing APN's 8-531-03 (178 acres), 10-011-01 (108 acres) and 10-011-29 (520 acres) from Public Conservation to Public/Quasi-Public.

Summary: The proposed amendments would make the Master Plan land use designations consistent with the actual public use of the landfill and surrounding properties, and will be consistent with the proposed land uses pursuant to the lands bill that will transfer ownership of the properties from the BLM to Carson City.

Summary: The subject lot is approximately 7,800 square feet in size, located on a residential street with existing houses on either side, and is adjacent to Mills Parks. The property previously contained a City well, which has been abandoned. The proposed action would allow the construction of one single-family home on the property.

Generally, the process would be for the City Manager to appoint a committee of five people that would review the applications, interview up to ten applicants and then recommend no more than three of the ten to be interviewed by the Board of Supervisors.
