The request is for a Waiver of Title 19 Appendix F Development Standards to allow zero street trees along Charleston Boulevard where eight were previously required by approved Site Development Plan Review (SDR-65423).

Agenda Items 23 to 25 – Senior Citizen Apartment at Charleston Boulevard and Lindell Road.: This is a request for a 144-unit Senior Citizen Apartments development on 4.62 acres located at the southeast corner of Charleston Boulevard and Lindell Road. Staff recommends denial on the General Plan Amendment from Service Commercial to High Density Residential and the rezoning from Limited Commercial to High Density Residential. APPROVED. 

Agenda Item 26 – Fremont East Form-Based Code: This request for a General Plan Amendment is an implementation action to the vision and goals, as set forth by the Las Vegas community in the Vision 2045 Downtown Las Vegas Masterplan. In June 2016, the city adopted the Vision 2045 Downtown Las Vegas Masterplan which identified the need to revise the outdated planning and zoning regulations and development standards for downtown. The Plan listed, as the first of twelve key implementation actions, the objective of adopting a Form-Based Code for the downtown districts. In October 2017, the city replaced the Downtown Centennial Plan with the Interim Downtown Las Vegas Development Standards. These Interim Downtown Las Vegas Development Standards now serve as a regulatory framework to transition between the former Downtown Centennial Plan and the new Title 19 Form-Based Code. The current land use designation of the properties within the Fremont East District is not consistent with the goal of implementing planning standards that cater to the neighborhood context. The Form-Based Code (FBC) designation would allow for form-based zoning categories, or transect zones, that are based on the specific needs and desired outcomes for the Fremont East District to implement the vision set in the Downtown Masterplan. Staff recommends approval. APPROVED.
