THIS ITEM WAS PULLED FOR DISCUSSION BY COUNCIL MEMBERS DELGADO AND BREKHUS.

 

Council Member Delgado made the following disclosure:

 

              “Madam Mayor, I need to disclose the fact that I live at 2105 Dutch Draft Dr., Reno, NV, 89521, within the Bella Vista/Corona Cyan subdivision.

 

              On this matter I have sought guidance from the City Attorney’s Office.  Pursuant to NRS 281A.420(4)(a), the law presumes that the independence of judgment of a reasonable person   in   the   public  officer’s   situation   would   not  be  materially  affected  by   the   public officer’s significant pecuniary interest where the resulting benefit or detriment accruing to the public officer is not greater than that accruing  to any other member of any general business, profession, occupation or group that is affected by the matter.

 

              Here, while I have a significant pecuniary interest in my home, the resulting benefit or detriment accruing to me and my family from the assignment of the Public Facility Site Agreement for a fire station will not be greater than that accruing to any other member of the general public that owns property in the Bella Vista/Corona Cyan subdivision.  See, In re: Weber,  Comm’n   Op.   No.   09-47C  (2009) (mere   ownership   of   property   not   sufficient   to implicate disclosure requirements).  The fact that I own property in the Bella Vista/Corona Cyan subdivision will not impact my ability to impartially review and render a decision upon this particular Agenda Item.

 

              In light of the foregoing, the independence of judgment of a reasonable person in my situation would not be materially affected by my pecuniary interest, and because this is not a clear case of disqualifying conflict of interest, I will be voting on this matter.  Madam Clerk, please accept this disclosure and lodge it on the record for this meeting and subsequent meetings pertaining to this Agenda item.”

 

Council Member Brekhus requested a staff presentation on this item.

 

Jasmine Mehta, City of Reno Deputy City Attorney, presented the staff report and answered questions regarding the agreement.

 

Ms. Mehta explained for Council Member Brekhus the agreement contemplated that a site would be dedicated for the construction of the fire station, but it also allowed for the parties to agree to sell that site if it was no longer necessary. She confirmed that the parties did sell that site and the fire station on Veterans Parkway was constructed instead.

 

Council Member Brekhus expressed concern that the agreement contemplates something that has already happened.

 

Ms. Mahta stated there is still an ongoing requirement under the agreement for building permit fees to be paid for the construction of the public facility. She explained that changing the language in the agreement related to the sale of the site dedicated for construction of a fire station would have been an option, but for simplicity’s sake a simple assignment was done.

 

Council Member Brekhus stated she wants these deals to be as clean a record as they can be. She asked if there are contributions for a fire station that could be built somewhere, sometime embedded in the agreement.

 

Ms. Mahta explained the contributions remain ongoing. The agreement contemplates that up until 1.5 million dollars is collected, the contributions will remain ongoing. There is contemplation about further expansion of the public facility site in order to accommodate the continuing growth.

 

Arlo Stockham, City of Reno Acting Assistant City Manager, answered questions from Council Member Brekhus regarding the agreement contributions and timing.

 

Ms. Mahta clarified for Council Member Brekhus that she believes the fire station is already built. The 1.5 million dollars would be used to expand an additional bay.

 

Council Member Brekhus stated she does not see any plans for expanding the fire station in the CIP. She also stated she does not feel prepared to vote on this at this time as she has a lot of outstanding questions and suggested continuing this item.

 

Ms. Mahta confirmed there is no pressing time line for this item.

 

This item was continued to a future council meeting.

The ±728.69 acre site is comprised of 14 parcels generally located along the east and west side of Lemmon Drive from Patrician Drive to Oregon Boulevard within the Cooperative Planning Area (CPA) overlay zone. This is a project of regional significance for increasing: 1) employment by 938 employees or more; 2) housing by 625 units or more; 3) sewage generation by an average of 187,500 gallons or more a day; 4) water usage of 625 acre feet per year or more; and 5) traffic generation by an average of 6,250 average daily trips (ADT) or more. This item was continued from the March 27, 2019 City Council meeting. [Ward 4] 11:05 AM

Recommendation:  The Planning Commission recommends Council deny the requested Master Plan amendment, zoning map amendment, and tentative approval of the Prado Ranch Planned Unit Development Handbook.

Proposed Motion:  I move to uphold the recommendation of the Planning Commission.

Master Plan Amendment
In the case of LDC16-00026 (Prado Ranch Master Plan Amendment), based on noncompliance with all the required considerations, I move to deny the Master Plan amendment. I am unable to determine that the proposed amendment meets the statutory requirement that it serves as a pattern and guide for that kind of orderly physical growth and development of the City which will cause the least amount of natural resource impairment; conforms to the adopted population plan and ensures an adequate supply of housing, including affordable housing; and forms a basis for the efficient expenditure of funds relating to the subjects of the City of Reno Master Plan because it does not conform to the following Master Plan Policies and Plans:  ___________

PUD Zoning Map Amendment
In the case of LDC17-00019 (Prado Ranch PUD Zoning Map Amendment), based on my inability to make all the required findings, I move to deny the zoning map amendment and tentative approval of the handbook for the reasons provided in the attached minute order.

The following voice mails received prior to 4:00 p.m. on January 12, 2021 were played for council:

Joan Moisner

Linda Donohoe

Nick Hillard

Tammy Holt-Still

 

City Manager Thornley made the following disclosure:

"I did previous work in my private capacity for the applicant on this project and so the Ethics in Government Law, the Rules of Professional Conduct for Lawyers in Nevada, and the Code of Ethics for ICMA require me to step away from this item. Arlo Stockham will replace me."

 

Angela Fuss, City of Reno Acting Community Development Director, presented the staff report.

 

Stacie Huggins, Wood Rogers, gave a presentation for the applicant.

 

Council Member Brekhus expressed concerns regarding the administration of this request and asked about the changes made since the Planning Commission saw this.

 

Ms. Fuss explained that from a land use perspective, the land use is the same application that went before the Planning Commission. The major differences between when the Planning Commission approved it and when the applicant resubmitted in October of 2020 have to do with stormwater mitigation.

 

Council Member Brekhus asked what Ms. Fuss meant by resubmitted.

 

Ms. Fuss explained that during the twelve month window of time after October 2020, the applicant revised their application to address some of the bigger regional issues.

 

Council Member Reese stated he wants to understand the way in which Lemmon Drive is to be improved from 395 all the way up to Chickadee Drive. There seem to be chunks of roadway that will have different treatment over time, some of which are related to the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) and some related to the developer's desire to act and get credits back.

 

Ms. Fuss discussed the improvements the development will have to put in place with Phase 1.

 

Council Member Reese stated he understands that the RTC prefers a different route and asked who gets to make that decision, the builder or RTC.

 

Ms. Fuss stated the RTC is going through a separate process where they are looking at different alternatives on how to design Lemmon Drive.

 

Council Member Reese asked how he as a Council Member is supposed to make a decision about some of the findings that need to be made when he doesn’t understand where the road is supposed to be and who gets to make that decision and what the timeline is.

 

Ms. Fuss stated the RTC is working on a capacity study. That is a completely separate process. What we are looking at today is what the applicant will have to construct if Prado is approved today. Prado will work with RTC and make their design fit in with RTC's plan if it is approved by the time Prado is moving forward.

 

Council Member Reese stated it ultimately comes back to what comes first, and that is where he struggles.

 

Ms. Fuss stated if a plan is approved through the RTC and an alignment is approved, Prado can build that alignment and get regional road impact fee credits. The overarching issue is timing.

 

Council Member Jardon asked for a process description of how projects are aligned and in particular, not just this project's improvements but the ones that are from the freeway to this project.

 

Dale Keller, Project Engineer for RTC, explained the different segments the RTC is moving forward on right now. He stated that from what their models tell them, when they design out to 2040 for their traffic design, they see that a four lane facility around Chickadee Drive into the Military Road area is sufficient to address traffic needs.

 

Council Member Duerr asked about the 100 year floodplain and what percent of the project is in that floodplain.

 

Mark Gookin, Wood Rogers, stated he does not know the percentages but he pointed out proposed areas of development on a map.

 

Council Member Duerr noted the Master Plan talks about avoiding development in the floodplain and if that is not possible, to minimize it or mitigate it. The applicant has demonstrated a good mitigation ratio, but before getting to mitigation we should take a step back and talk about the basic principle to avoid development in the flood plain to the extent possible. Council Member Duerr asked about the status of the FEMA remapping.

 

Mr. Gookin explained they have had a FEMA Conditional Letter of Map Revision (CLOMAR) cued up since 2015. Community acknowledgement is required from a designated Flood Plain Coordinator in order for the CLOMAR to be submitted to FEMA, and we do not currently have a signature for that.

 

Council Member Brekhus asked about an area on the north end of the site map. She interpreted it as part of the project area but it also has a tentative map that was approved by the County. She asked what land use is being identified there and if it is part of the project area.

 

Ms. Fuss explained there are two projects. The only one Council is looking at today is the City of Reno portion. Several years ago Washoe County approved Prado in the Washoe County jurisdiction but they have not recorded a final map on that yet.

 

Council Member Brekhus recalled that originally the plan was to sewer to the Lemmon Valley Treatment Plant immediately contiguous to the property, but now this request involves coming to our sewer treatment plant. Since this interim period we have closely tracked how much capacity we have there. The record doesn't show how much we have committed and how much we have planned. She expressed concern about lining someone in the cue while we don't have the plant operational and she is not confident about making the infrastructure findings. Focusing on the area that is adjacent to the Lemmon Valley Treatment Plant, it has been rare to see residential suburban densities contiguous to a wastewater treatment plant. The intensification of lot size here is a concern. She would rather have fewer people up against a wastewater treatment plant. Council Member Brekhus asked what is going on with that plant and noted the decommissioning of a wastewater treatment plant immediately adjacent to neighbors could be a long process and may be incompatible.

 

John Flansberg, City of Reno Director of Public Works, stated Washoe County and the City of Reno performed a joint facility plan for the North Valleys. In that plan there was discussion regarding the Lemmon Valley Treatment Plant. The decision to either decommission or upgrade the existing plant will end up going to the Washoe County Commission.

 

Council Member Brekhus stated it seems the intensification of single family land use near the treatment plant is rather vague and there are compatibility issues with intensifying the lot sizes adjacent to that use.

 

Council Member Duerr stated when she met with the applicant she identified this as a critical issue. The applicant said they plan to use about .4 mgd for their project. We are planning a 2 mgd plant, so that would be roughly about a quarter of the capacity of what we are planning to build. One of the challenges is the time frame to build that plant. Even more critical is where to put the effluent. Council Member Duerr stated she has supported expansion of the plant all the way through until the last vote. She did not support the last vote because it is critical at this point that we address where to put the water. Her concern is that is not figured out yet. We need to know where the sewer is going, how the roads are servicing the development, and if the development is properly zoned in terms of its context and compatibility with the neighborhood. Based on our Mater Plan, land use mapping, and existing development, it does not appear to be compatible. She also may not be able to make findings regarding infrastructure requirements. She is also very concerned about building in the 100 year floodplain in a closed basin. The applicant has shown how they would mitigate that but she has concerns about the basic premise of developing a third to half of the project in a 100 year floodplain.

 

Council Member Brekhus concurred with the concepts of the sewer treatment plan availability. The only level of analysis on this changed plan was that the treatment plant would be available July 2022, but based upon other knowledge, the capacity is a question. She asked how outdated the floodplain map is and what plans there are to renew that map.

 

Mr. Flansberg stated Washoe County did initiate an HDR study on the floodplain. That study, if not completed, is very close to being completed. He confirmed the intent is to submit that study to FEMA as a new base flood map.

 

Council Member Brekhus stated for future reference she would like to know when CLOMARs come up how old the map is and what the development conditions were at the time the map was created. That is important information that is relevant to our decision making. She asked about the map of the industrial area.

 

Ms. Fuss explained it is her understanding that the Handbook does not restrict the applicant to breaking up the industrial area.

 

Council Member Brekhus discussed the size of the industrial area and asked if there was any analysis on air quality for three million square feet of industrial building.

 

Ms. Fuss stated that because this is not a specific project yet, we have to use more generalities. The traffic study looked in general at how much truck traffic would be generated with 3.6 million square feet of warehousing. That was about 6,000 average daily trips at full build out. The Planning Commission did bring up air quality as a concern and that was one of the reasons they couldn't make the findings.

 

Council Member Brekhus expressed concern regarding safe route to schools and asked if the school district commented on this.

 

Washoe County School District comments did not specifically address safe route to schools, however that was a staff concern brought up with the Planning Commission.

 

Council Member Brekhus noted that the industrial site will be elevated and asked what the elevation of the docks would be in relationship to the street level that services the neighborhood to the north.

 

Nathan Gilbert, City of Reno Associate Planner, stated he would need to research that to find out.

 

Council Member Brekhus asked if the PUD has any restrictions on 24-hour operation or residential adjacency special use permits.

 

Mr. Gilbert confirmed it does. There are restricted hours of operation and there is no allowance for them to ask for a special use permit for 24-hour operation later down the road.

 

Council Member Weber stated the proposed industrial land use is really not compatible with the surrounding residential development. The proposed development will create an industrial land use island to the east of Lemmon Drive that is surrounded my residential master plan land use designations in both the city and unincorporated county. The industrial land use designation does not provide for an appropriate transition from lower density residential uses to the north that have existed for decades. The proposed industrial land use is over three miles away from US 395. That is a long way to travel through sensitive areas including existing residential neighborhoods, a designated school zone, and students walking to Lemmon Valley Elementary School. There are issues that cannot be mitigated with an open space buffer as they have larger impacts on the broader area that has been planned and approved for residential development.

 

It was moved by Council Member Weber, seconded by Council Member Reese, in the case of LDC16-00026 (Prado Ranch MP Amendment), based on the non-compliance with all the required considerations, to deny the master plan amendment. Council Member Weber stated she is unable to determine that the proposed amendment meets the statutory requirement that it serves as a pattern and guide to that kind of orderly physical growth and development of the city which will cause the least amount of natural resource impairment, conform to the adopted population plan, and ensure an adequate supply of housing including affordable housing, and form a basis for the efficient expenditure of funds relating to the subjects of the City of Reno Master Plan because it does not conform to the following Master Plan policies and plans:  T-11, T-25, CD6, and Site Design Objective #1.

 

Motion carried unanimously.

 

It was moved by Council Member Weber, seconded by Council Member Brekhus, in the case of LDC17-00019 (Prado Ranch Planned Unit Development Zoning Map Amendment), based on the inability to make all the required findings, to deny the zoning map amendment and tentative approval of the handbook and am unable to make the following required findings: a, k, and m.

 

Motion carried unanimously.
