Open Space, Parks and Rec to discuss Carson City dog use policy

The Open Space Advisory Committee and the Parks and Recreation Commission will meet separately this week to discuss ideas for a new city dog policy or ordinance.
They’ll be considering where on city property to restrict dog use, allow on-leash dog use, and allow off-leash dog use. In previous joint meetings in December and June, committee and commission members said they hoped to successfully balance the needs of dog owners, park and trail users, wildlife, and sensitive natural lands and water.
Both will meet at 5:30 p.m. in the Robert “Bob” Crowell Board Room of the Community Center on 851 E William St., with OSAC on Monday and PRC on Tuesday.
The Board of Supervisors will also meet this upcoming Thursday, Aug. 19 at 8:30 a.m. in the Robert “Bob” Crowell Board Room.
Among their agenda items, they’re planning discussion and possible action on:
• An appeal of the Planning Commission’s decision to deny a housing developer a variance request. Lantum Investments asked that they be allowed to construct attached single family residential units on 1147 W. College Parkway with 10-foot setbacks along John Mankins Park, rather than the usual 20-foot setbacks that the city requires.
• A tentative subdivision maps for the East Nye Lane development project, which would create 61 single family residential lots.
• A proposed resolution to transfer the remainder of this year’s Private Activity Bond Volume Cap (meaning, low interest financing) to the Nevada Rural Housing Authority.
• Whether to award a contract to Aspen Developers Corp. to replace sewer and water lines on W. Caroline St., W. Robinson St., W. Spear St., and W. Telegraph St., as well as a road reconstruction project on W. Robinson St., for a total not to exceed $2.9 million.
