Meeting History

Dec 6, 2017 12:00 PM Video Reno City Council Regular

A RECESS WAS CALLED AT 2:21 P.M. AND UPON RECONVENING AT 2:50 P.M. ALL WERE PRESENT.

Council Member Brekhus requested that items G.1 and G.2 be heard after the tentative map discussion this evening.

Mayor Schieve stated that it was not noticed that way and should be heard now.

Council Member Brekhus noted that it would not be a noticing issue to change the order of these items on the agenda.

Mayor Schieve called for public comment.

City Clerk Turney stated that two letters in opposition were received.

Mayor Schieve made the following disclosure for Items G.1 and G.2:

"Madam Clerk, in the interest of full transparency I am disclosing the fact that I have a personal relationship with Jessica Sferrazza. On this matter I have sought guidance from the City Attorney's Office. I understand that she has been retained by the applicant as a consultant on this project. I do not have any commitments, financial ties, or obligations to her. The public policy of this state favors the right to perform the duties for which the public officer was elected or appointed and to vote on or otherwise act upon a matter provided the public officer has properly disclosed the potential conflict."

Council Member Brekhus noted inconsistencies in the comments from the Fire Department for this zone change and the Meridian 120 subdivision map.

Chief Cochran confirmed that there is the potential for a high-rise and explained that there is no plan being considered for one, hence they did not voice those considerations. He stated that they might have additional concerns when they see the actual plans.

Council Member Brekhus stated that the way the code is written the Fire Department would not get a chance to see them and expressed concern that this land intensification is putting people at risk.

Council Member McKenzie discussed the lack of fire service in the Verdi area and suggested looking into establishing an impact fee in that area to pay for a fire station. Depending on auto-aid for our new development is not a good policy. As we build up the Verdi area we need to provide the service needed, and expansion of fire and police services in this area is costly.

Janelle Thomas, Community Development Senior Civil Engineer, answered questions from Council Member Brekhus regarding the storm drainage system in this area.

Ordinance No. 6440 was passed and adopted.
