Residential development plan reviewed by Carson City officials

A proposal for a residential development on Longview Way has been reviewed by the Carson City Planning division.

The plan calls for 23 single-family houses on lots ranging in size from 10,649 square feet to 14,328 square feet with 4.5 acres of open space and trail connectivity. The 12-acre site is west of Longview Way, 200 feet north of Bedford Way.

The application, filed by Steve Neighbors, was for review of a planned unit development, or PUD, to allow for more homes than permitted in the site’s single-family 1 acre zone.

But the Planning division said a zoning map amendment would be needed.

“The PUD would allow you a maximum of 1.1 units per acre or 13 units (CCMC 17.09.025). In order to achieve the proposed density of 1.92 units per acre (23 units) a zoning map amendment from Single Family 1 acre to Single Family 21,000 square feet would be necessary,” reads Planning’s response to a major project review held in October.

The reply letter also outlines city code requirements for engineering and utilities, fire, and parks and recreation.

The major project review was held Oct. 6 and the division has not received a follow-up application for a tentative PUD, which is the next step, said Heather Ferris, associate planner.

“I am walking through the entitlement issues with the city over the next few months and am working with the architect for some elevations as well,” said Neighbors.

The property is owned by Adams Carson LLC, which also owns property in downtown Carson City.
