E.4 ZMA-18-085 For Possible Action: To continue to the meeting of July 25, 2018, a request for a Zoning Map Amendment to change the effective date of a zoning map amendment from Agriculture to a mix of Single Family 6000, General Commercial, Multi-Family Apartment, and Multi-Family Duplex to become effective upon the transfer of ownership of the sale of property from the Myers Family Exempt Trust. The property is located at 2200 East Fifth Street, APNs 010-041-38, 010-041-52, and 010-041-071.

Summary: On April 7, 2016, the Board of Supervisors approved Ordinance 2016-6, approving an amendment to the zoning map on the subject properties with an effective date of the transfer of ownership from MTK Properties LLC, Arraiz Family Trust, and Tom and Martha Keating Family Trust. The applicant is seeking to purchase the subject property, and is seeking to modify the effective date of the zoning map amendment to become effective upon the transfer of the property from the Myers Family Exempt Trust.

E.5 ZCA-18-090 For Possible Action: To make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors regarding an ordinance amending Title 18 (Zoning), Appendix A (Development Standards), Division 4 (Signs), Section 4.4 (Administration) of the Carson City Municipal Code to amend regulations related to temporary banners, flags, a-frame signs and other temporary sign devices, and to modify the definition of “frontage of building” to make the method of measurement of allowable sign area consistent between shopping centers and other commercial uses; and providing other matters properly related thereto.

Summary: The Board of Supervisors provided general direction to staff on May 17, 2018, regarding possible changes to regulations pertaining to the use of temporary banners, flags, and A-frame sign for commercial advertising. Currently, banners and freestanding flags are permitted for up to 30 days in any 90-day period, and A-frame signs are prohibited except within the downtown area. Changes may include clarifying times for using banners, restrictions related to “feather flags,” and allowing A-frame signs adjacent to all businesses. Also, the definition of “frontage of building” is being modified to create consistency in the way permitted sign area is measured for commercial uses on various properties.

E.6 ZCA-18-091 For Possible Action: To make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors regarding an ordinance amending Title 18 (Zoning), Chapter 18.03 (Definitions) of the Carson City Municipal Code to amend the definition of “guest building”; and amending Title 18 (Zoning), Appendix A (Development Standards), Division 1 (Land Use And Site Design), Section 1.4 (Guest Building Development) of the Carson City Municipal Code to delete the restriction limiting the occupancy of a guest building to family members and non-paying guests, and providing other matters properly related thereto.

Summary: A “guest building” is a secondary residential unit on a residential property. Guest buildings are permitted on residential properties subject to certain requirements, including limitations on size. Current regulations limit the use of guest buildings to the primary resident’s family members and non-paying guests. The proposed amendment would eliminate the limitation on who may occupy a guest building and, therefore, allow an accessory dwelling unit to be occupied by non-family members.
