Planners to hear permit requests for 2 wind turbines

By Sandi Hoover

The Carson City Planning Commission on Wednesday will consider a special use permit request from Robert F. Matthews for an asphalt plant and aggregate crushing plant with a 1.5 megawatt wind turbine at a height of 225 feet plus blade height, on property zoned general industrial located on the south side of Highway 50 East near the Lyon County line.

Both the wind turbine and two proposed 150-ton silos exceed the 45-foot building height of the zone. The proposed project is in the area previously known as the Tip Top Pit.

The commission also is scheduled to hear a request from Rainbow Conservation Corp., property owner Joe Goni, for a special use permit for a wind energy tower in an area zoned single family 6000 at 7300 Schulz Drive.

The proposed turbine of 160 feet would exceed the 60-foot maximum and would not satisfy the setback standard from the project property lines.

The planning commission is also set to consider:

• A request from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada for an extension of time for the approved special use permit for construction of a recreation center at 1870 Russell Way. The club is requesting a five-year extension to allow the Parks and Recreation Department time to obtain funding for the project.

• A special use permit request from the Carson City School District for a maintenance building at 1140 W. King St. in the west central portion of the Carson Middle School campus.
