Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, May 2, 1997 9 Planning Commision - Continued from previous page completed within one year of the approval. The Plannning Commis- The Planning Commission took all of Conte' s suggestions into consideration and stated that they would review them at a series of workshops are scheduled in June. The first two are scheduled to take place on June 7 and June 31. World Premier Investments, the corporation that is devel- oping a shopping center on the corner of Basin Road and Highway 160 was delayed by water rights. Representative Dave Garrison stated that the project is still scheduled to take place but there is an estimated four-month wait until they can proceed. In order for Garrison to get the parcel map for the area ap- proved by the Nevada State Division of Water Resources, he had to purchase the water rights from outside owners of those rights. Now that he has the rights, Garrison has to trans- fer the fights to the utility com- ,lnY so the shopping center ph get underway. PEC Vice President Hoping to speed up the pro- Fred Conte cess, the Planning Commission and Garrison created a new set of parcel maps in which the area in question was divided into three sections. They are in the process of trying to get the maps approved. "Garrison has already been dragged through the blender on this," said Williams. "With the water fights issue, the project could be delayed an additional four months. Garrison doesn't have that long to wait. The whole project could go away." PEC's Conte and Mark Prasse highlighted a new sewer system idea that would place ready sewer and water systems in developments that new residents could hook up to immediatly without having to install temporary sewer and well systems. The "Improvements," as they were called by PEC, would be funded by a portion of the selling price of lots. The money would be set aside to collect and gain interest until such time as the correct number of residences were built in an area for the sewer and water systems to function properly. Williams showed some concern for the funding sugges- tions. "I have a feeling that if the money is not there when a project is ready to go, it will be because it was used to fund some other project in some other subdivision," said Williams. Conte responded by saying that the responsibility should lie solely with the developers to make sure the money is used properly. They would log all accounts and deal directly with utility companies. "This is why we would be responsible for making sure it is written in advance and what goes to who and how much," said Conte. "We are willing to accept the cost of production." Prasse took a subdivision map of a section of Calvada to show the commission exactly how the system would work. 191-1 Frontage Rd. -- 727-0554 No definite plans have been made and the system, although used in areas of California, is. new to the Pabrump Valley and will be further reviewed by the commission. During the public comment portion of the meeting, a developer,Alan Myers, made a case for more commercial de- velopment along the southern end of Highway 160. Myers acknowledged that some of the land on the road is zoned resi- dential, but stated that the land is just going to sit there and be of no use to Pahrump. "Nobody is going to build a home on the highway," said Myers. "They wouldn' t want to have to deal with the noise, then build a wall to keep people out. The land should be zoned "s all commercial land when :,ae zoning ordinances are implemented."
