Petitioner/Presenter: Pinnacles Unit 3, LLC/Tim Thompson
Recommendation: The Community Services Department and Planning Commission recommend approval of PCN13018
Financial Impact: N/A
Business Impact (Per NRS 237):

Agenda Item Brief: This is a review of an expired Tentative Map to allow for a 42-lot single family residential subdivision on 12.5± acres generally located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Mesa Meadows Drive and El Cap Court, Sparks, NV.

Background: A Tentative Map request for The Pinnacles, a 124-lot single family residential development, was originally approved by the City Council on November 22, 2004 (PCN04054). Subsequently, two final maps were recorded. Phase 1 was recorded in March of 2006 with 45 lots and phase 2 was recorded in September 2006 with 37 lots. At the time, Nevada Revised Statutes required subsequent final maps to be recorded within one year of recordation of the previous map. Because a final map was not recorded for the remaining lots (phase 3) within that time frame, the Tentative Map expired.


Pursuant to Nevada state law, when a parcel is divided into 5 or more parcels a Tentative Map shall be required. In this case, the applicant is requesting to divide the 12.5± acre site into a 42-lot single family residential subdivision. The lot sizes will range between 7,402 square feet to 20,702 square feet with an average lot size of 9,977 square feet, which meets the minimum lot size requirements. Mass grading for the development was completed prior to expiration. Proposed architecture has not been provided with this application.

Rather than require the builder to return to the Planning Commission for review and approval of the architectural building elevation at a later date, staff is proposing the following condition: “Prior to the issuance of individual building permits, the home builder shall submit master building plans for review and approval by the Administrator which are in conformance with the Kiley Ranch Southern Division Handbook and the City’s Design Standards Manual. The Administrator may approve the architectural elevations or, at the request of the applicant/builder, forward the architectural plans to the Planning Commission for review and approval. The architectural design for phase 3 shall be consistent with the previously approved plans to promote design continuity throughout the development.” This is a review of an expired Tentative Map.

In reviewing the application staff could not identify any significant changes or concerns regarding project as compared to the previous approval. As such, staff is simply “renewing” the previous approval, including any conditions imposed on the project. Staff has been able to make all the applicable Findings and suggest the Planning Commission forward a recommendation for approval to the City Council.


Recommended Motion: I move to approve the Tentative Map associated with PCN13018 adopting Findings T1 through T12 and the facts supporting these Findings as set forth in the staff report and subject to the Conditions of Approval 1 through 19 as listed in the Planning Commission staff report.
