Carson City Board of Supervisors to take up two housing developments

The Carson City Board of Supervisors Thursday will consider tentative maps for two housing developments.

One is for a planned unit development of 105 single-family attached homes on 7.8 acres on State Street, between Long and William streets.

The Planning Commission in June voted to recommend the development to the board, and to approve a special use permit for residential use on commercial zoning, but some concerns were raised about the additional traffic it would bring to the already busy intersection of State and William streets.

The other development before the board is for the second phase of Schulz Ranch, a Lennar Reno LLC development, consisting of 105 single-family homes on 18.6 acres in south Carson City.

The project’s first subdivision map was recorded in August 2014 and per Carson City municipal code successive maps in a series of phases must be approved within two years for the tentative subdivision map to remain valid.

The board also will review and make recommendations to the Carson City Health and Human Services department on “areas for improvement” identified during a site visit by the Public Health Accreditation Board.

The board found five areas for improvement, including better data analysis, collaboration on investigations of reportable/disease outbreaks and environmental public health issues, and development of a collaborative process for strategies to improve access to healthcare.

The supervisors will appoint three members to the Carson City Visitors Bureau representing the hotel/motel industry, other commercial interests and a citizen-at-large, as well as one manufacturer member to the Airport Authority for a partial term that expires in October 2017.

In an item requiring no action, Edwin James, general manager, Carson Water Subconservancy District, will give a presentation on the Carson River watershed, including data on runoff and groundwater supplies.

Several contracts and agreements are up for approval, including an agreement to provide wheelchair van services between Carson Tahoe Regional Healthcare and the fire department; a contract not to exceed $981,425 with Thomas Petroleum, LLC for bulk fuel and delivery services for city vehicles; and an interlocal contract with the CarsonWater Subconservancy District to fund up to $75,000 for the Golden Eagle Lane Erosion Control Project.

The Board of Supervisors meet at 8:30 a.m. in the Sierra Room, Community Center, 851 East William St.
