The application was presented by Mary Aldava, Planner on behalf of Staff who indicated Staff was recommending approval of AMP-58-05.
Stephanie Allen of Kummer, Kaempfer, Bonner & Renshaw, 3800 Howard Hughes Parkway, 7th Floor, Las Vegas, NV 89109 appeared on behalf of the applicant stating the proposed use was compatible with the area and concurred with Staff recommendation.
Chairman Jay Aston opened the Public Hearing.
Ms. Allen stated she had spoken with the applicant, and he would like to hold Item No. 15, ZN-84-05, to January 11, 2006, to allow the applicant additional time to work with Staff on some unfinished issues with the site plan.
The following participants came forward:
Pat Harris, 328 Duke Avenue, North Las Vegas, NV 89030 asked the Commission to deny the application as she felt the site was not large enough for 38 townhomes and it would add more traffic congestion at the intersection of Carey Avenue and Commerce Street. She was also concerned about the possibility of increased crime in the area.
Theresa Fountain, 505 Rossmoyne Avenue, North Las Vegas, NV 89030 stated she had watched the neighborhood she lived in go back and forth from bad to good and at this time the neighborhood was very nice because the City had made property owners clean up their property and she felt by developing the corner of Carey Avenue and Commerce Street with townhomes would be a mistake, as it would bring crime back to the area. Ms. Fountain stated she was also speaking on behalf of Mike Jerkins, 312 Rossmoyne Avenue, North Las Vegas, NV 89030.
Robert and Delores Mellner, 432 Rossmoyne, North Las Vegas, NV 89030 stated she was opposed to the application as she felt it would bring crime back to the area.
Sharon Washington, 532 Duchess Avenue, North Las Vegas, NV 89030 stated she was opposed to the application as she felt the townhomes would become Section 8 housing and there would be more crime.
