Vintage at Kings Canyon comes before Carson City Board of Supervisors Dec. 1


What: Carson City Board of Supervisors

When: 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 1. Vintage portion scheduled for 2 p.m.

Where: Sierra Room, Carson City Community Center

The Vintage at Kings Canyon proposed development goes before the Carson City Board of Supervisors Thursday.

The board will vote whether to approve a master plan amendment to allow commercial zoning on 5.6 acres and a tentative planned unit development (TPUD) on 78.2 acres that includes plans for 212 homes as well as 96 units of assisted and independent living facilities.

The two Vintage agenda items are scheduled to be heard starting at 2 p.m. in the Sierra Room at the Carson City Community Center.

On Sept. 29, the amendment and TPUD went before the Planning Commission, which voted 4-2 to recommend the board approve them with some conditions and revisions.

More than two dozen changes were made to the development’s handbook, including limiting permanent occupants to two per house.

A few revisions weren’t completed, but planning department staff is recommending the board approve the amendment and TPUD with the condition those additional changes are met by the time the developer files a final map.

More than 200 people attended the September Planning Commission meeting, held in the Bob Boldrick Theater, and more than 30 gave public comment, almost all against the project.

The controversial over-55 community planned on the Andersen Ranch between Mountain Street and Ormsby Boulevard has faced opposition, especially from nearby residents, ever since plans for it became widely known in April.

In the morning, the supervisors will decide whether to approve the transfer of the gaming license of Carson Horseshoe Club from Nevada Treasure Chest to Silver Bullet of Nevada, LLC.

Silver Bullet plans to use the license to open a second Bodines casino in NorthTowne Plaza.

The grandfathered license would allow Bodines to operate without 100 hotel rooms required for new licenses.

Bodines plans have faced opposition, too, from six local gaming properties who fought its special use permit granted by the Planning Commission.

The casinos — Carson Nugget Casino Hotel, Fandango Casino & Hotel, Gold Dust West Casino Hotel, Carson City Max Casino and SlotWorld Casino — appealed the decision to the Board of Supervisors, who last week denied the appeal.

At the time, the casinos’ lawyer, Garrett Gordon, Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP, said he would oppose the transfer of the gaming license as well.

At Thursday’s meeting, however, the board will only vote whether to approve the transfer of the license to a new owner.

If approved, the board will take up the transfer of the license to a new location at a later date.

The supervisors also will decide whether to approve a revenue-sharing agreement with David Pedder, who’s planning to open a Nissan auto dealership on South Carson Street.

The agreement, if approved, would rebate 50 percent of the sales tax in the dealership’s first year of operation, 55 percent in the second year and 60 percent thereafter, through Dec. 31, 2032, or $3.5 million in rebates, whichever occurs first.

The board also will consider starting the process to put a moratorium on applications for marijuana establishments, such as growers or producers, until staff can evaluate new regulations.

The new regulations are a result of the statewide legalization of recreational marijuana, passed by voters this past election.

The Nevada Department of Taxation has until Dec. 31, 2017, to prepare the regulations.

The moratorium, if it happens, wouldn’t affect medical marijuana establishments already permitted by the city.

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