Previous Council Action:

 

At the December 13, 2017 Reno City Council hearing, Councilmember Brekhus requested additional information regarding the allowable density of a potential project as it relates to the Hillside Development Ordinance (Reno Municipal Code Article XVI).  The information required to analyze slopes, density, and the required amount of open space, will be provided with a special use permit (SUP) application for hillside development when a development contains slopes equal to or greater than ten percent or contains slopes that exceed 15 percent on 25 percent or more of the site.  Based on initial review of the subject site topography, any development other than a  single family residence will trigger an SUP for hillside development.

 

December 13, 2017              The City Council approved the first reading.

Meeting History

Jan 10, 2018 10:00 AM Video Reno City Council Regular

COUNCIL MEMBER MCKENZIE PRESENT AT 11:29 A.M.

Council Member Duerr said that in the past development on this site has been contentious, but the developers have worked with area residents to resolve the issues.

Council Member Brekhus said that she supported the introduction of the bill, but will not support the ordinance adoption. I believe the site was skipped over in the past because it would be difficult to develop and would require Special Use Permits (SUPs) for topography and perhaps cuts and fills. I believe the difference between MF21 and MF14, which I would support, is material. There is a storey height difference of ten feet and I think MF21 would be a more intensive intrusion. I believe that MF14 is more suitable for this topography.

Kyle Chisholm, Community Development Assistant Planner, confirmed for Council Member Duerr that there is no minimum intensity on the site. After the developer goes through the public process with area stakeholders he can always come in with something less than MF21.

Bill No. 7014, Ordinance No. 6445 was passed and adopted.
