F-1 SUP-09-055A For Possible Action: To conduct a one-year review on a previously approved Special Use Permit granted to Rob Lauder (property owners: Bernard-Bernard-Cuccaro, LLC and William F. and D. Horne et. al) for permanent outdoor display of merchandise on property zoned Retail Commercial (RC), located at 1803, -05, -07, -09, -11, -15, -17, -19 and -21 N. Carson Street, APNs 002-091-03, -04 and -06. (Susan Dorr Pansky)

Summary: This amended Special Use Permit was reviewed and conditionally approved by the Planning Commission on January 29, 2014. A condition of approval for the amended Special Use Permit was that it be reviewed by the Planning Commission one year from the date of approval to ensure compliance with the conditions of approval by both the owners and the owners’ tenants. With the applicant’s consent, staff delayed the review to the February 25, 2015 Planning Commission meeting. 

F-2 SUP-15-002 For Possible Action: To consider a request from Nevada Organix, LLC (property owner: DBB Holdings, Inc.) to allow a Medical Marijuana Dispensary on property zoned General Commercial (GC), located at 135 Clearview Drive, Unit 119, APN 009-161-20. (Susan Dorr Pansky)

Summary: The applicant is proposing a Medical Marijuana Dispensary in an existing 1,374 square foot tenant space within the General Commercial zoning district along South Carson Street. Per the ordinance passed by Carson City in July 2014, Medical Marijuana Establishments are allowed in designated zoning districts and areas in Carson City with the approval of a Special Use Permit and subject to specific City requirements. This applicant is one of two operators that have received a provisional certificate for a Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Carson City.

No action may be taken on a matter raised under public comment unless the item has been specifically included on the agenda as an item upon which action may be taken. Comments may be limited to three minutes per person or topic at the discretion of the Chair in order to facilitate the meeting
