F. Public Hearing Matters
F-1 AB-16-186 For Possible Action: To make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors regarding an application from Carson City Public Works Department (property owner: Carson City) for an Abandonment of right-of-way approximately 60 feet wide and up to 509 feet long, an area of approximately 30,297 square feet, adjacent to properties at 501 and 601 Arthur Street, 5320 Center Drive, 420 and 480 Clear Creek Avenue, APNs 009-236-02, -03, -04, 009-239-03 and -04. (Kathe Green)
Summary: The subject right-of-way, known as Hemlock Street, was created when the Bureau of Land Management issued patents in the early 1960s. Carson City is the owner of this right-of-way. The right-of-way is not utilized as a roadway, and contains landscape improvements from abutting property owners. If the right-of-way is abandoned, the land will become owned by the adjacent private property owners.
F-2 SUP-16-094* For Possible Action: To consider a request for a Special Use Permit from Sacramento Valley LP d/b/a/Verizon Wireless (Agent) Michelle Ellis, Project Manager (property owner: William Ramos Family Partnership) to allow a telecommunications facility, on property zoned Downtown Mixed Use (DTMU), located at South Stewart Street at 8th Street, APN 004-053-02. (Kathe Green)
Summary: The applicant is proposing a new wireless telecommunication facility with a water tower design with associated improvements in the Downtown Mixed-Use zoning district. New telecommunication facilities require approval of Special Use Permit. The proposed height of the tower design at 67 feet also requires review in the Downtown Mixed-Use zoning district.
F-3 ZCA-16-199 For Possible Action: To make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors regarding an ordinance amending Chapter 18.03 of the Carson City Municipal Code to modify the definition of Dwelling, Single Family to remove references to Group Care Facilities, Residential Care Facilities, and Halfway Houses. Late Material
Summary: The definition of Dwelling, Single Family was originally modified to include Group Care Facilities, Residential Care Facilities, and Halfway Houses based on State law. In the intervening time, the State has determined that these facilities are not required to be included in the definition of Dwelling, Single Family. The proposed modification will create consistency with State law.
