>>GOOD MORNING, WE’RE GOING TO GO TO CALL TO ORDER THE CLARKE WATER RECLAMATION DISTRICT BOARD OF TRUSTEES AND THE UNIVERSITY OF THE MEDICAL CENTRE OF NEVADA FOR TUESDAY, MAY 7, 2019. GOOD MORNING, MADAM CHAIR AND COMMISSIONERS. THE FIRST ITEM ON YOUR AGENDA IS PUBLIC COMMENT, BUT I DO BELIEVE BEFORE WE GO INTO PUBLIC COMMENT YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A FEW COMMENTS, OR THE BOARD WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A FEW COMMENTS?>>THANK YOU, COUNTY MANAGER. AS WE ALL KNOW, WE LOST A VERY DEAR FRIEND TO THE COUNTY, BUT ALSO MANY OF US THIS PAST WEEKEND. ASSEMBLYMAN TYRONE THOMPSON WHO WORKED FOR CLARK COUNTY OVER 19 YEARS. HE HAD A BIG HEART, AND HE SERVED AS OUR SENIOR TRAINING COORDINATOR AT HIS LAST STANCE, BUT HE SPENT MANY YEARS WORKING WITH OUR HOMELESS, REGIONAL HOMELESS COORDINATED SERVICES, SO I KNOW THAT MANY OF US ON THIS BOARD, DO WE HAVE ANY SOUND THAT GOES WITH IT? NO? SO WHAT I’LL TELL YOU ABOUT ASSEMBLYMAN THOMPSON, MORE IMPORTANTLY, OUR CLARK COUNTY FAMILY AND A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE STATE, THERE WAS NEVER, NEVER A DULL DAY WITH ASSEMBLYMAN THOMPSON. THIS IS BUILDING A GARDEN. HE WAS ALWAYS OUT IN HIS COMMUNITY WORKING VERY HARD, AND HE WAS ALWAYS A BRIGHT SPOT IN THE DAY. SO I TRY — IF ANYBODY TRIED TO BE NEGATIVE, HE REMINDED US THAT IT WAS A POSITIVE DAY AND WE WERE GOING TO MAKE IT WORK, AND HE WAS GOING TO DO WHAT HE COULD FOR SO MANY PATH FOR THE LONG TIME. SO IF ANY OTHER COMMISSIONERS WOULD LIKE TO SAY ANYTHING OR WE CAN GO AHEAD AND OBSERVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE. ANYBODY WANT TO SAY ANYTHING? COMMISSIONER JONES?>>THANKS, MADAM CHAIR. I GOT TO KNOW TYRONE UP IN THE LEGISLATURE, BUT I ALSO GOT TO SEE HIM IN ACTION THROUGH THE CLARK COUNTY NEIGHBOURHOOD COLLEGE PROGRAM THAT HE RAN WHE. TYRONE ALWAYS MADE YOU FEEL SPECIAL, THAT YOU WERE THE STAR WITH HIS SMILE. HE’D ASK YOU TO TAKE A SELFIE, AND YOU FELT LIKE THE ROCK STAR WHEN HE’D ASK YOU TO TAKE A SELFIE, AND I THINK THIS PAST WEEK IT WAS JUST A REMINDER THAT WE ALL HAVE THOSE PEOPLE WHO BRING US JOY DAY IN AND DAY OUT IN OUR LIVES, AND I THINK THE THING THAT WE ALL NEED TO DO IS THANK THE PEOPLE, GIVE A HUG TO THOSE PEOPLE THAT BRING US JOY BECAUSE WE NEVER KNOW WHEN IT’S THAT DAY THAT THEY’LL BE TAKEN BACK UP TO A DIFFERENT ROLE AS OUR GUARDIAN ANGELS.>>THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER. COMMISSIONER GIBSON?>>OUR PATHS CROSSED AS WE WAS A PASSIONATE SUPPORTER AND ENERGETIC LEADER WHEN IT COMES TO EDUCATION ISSUES, AND I HAD OCCASION TO AND HAVE HAD OCCASION TO SPEAK WITH HIM ON A NUMBER OF OCCASIONS, AND IT’S BEEN SATISFYING TO KNOW FROM A CONSTITUENT THAT AS SOMEBODY WHO LIVES DOWN HERE AND IS CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT THE STATE’S VIEW OF EDUCATION WOULD BE AND HOW WE WOULD WORK THROUGH THE ISSUES THAT SOMEONE AS PASSIONATE AND ENERGETIC WAS WORKING WITH ISSUE. HE WAS ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE, IN MY EXPERIENCE WITH HIM, WHO MADE YOU FORGET ABOUT THE PARTY LINES AND WAS ABLE TO FOCUS YOU AND HIMSELF ON THE ISSUE, AND I THINK IF THERE’S SOMETHING I WOULD TAKE AWAY FROM MY EXPERIENCE WITH HIM, IT WOULD BE THAT HE REALLY SERVED WITH PASSION, AND EACH OF US COULD DO A LITTLE BETTER JOB, PROBABLY, IN TERMS OF THE PASSION THAT WE’RE ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE AND FEEL AS WE MOVE THROUGH THE THINGS THAT WE COMMIT OURSELVES TO.>>THANK YOU. COMMISSIONER SEGERBLOOM?>>THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. I KNOW ONE OF TYRONE’S PASSION WAS HOMELESSNESS, AND THIS SESSION — I THINK IT’S NOT OUT OF THE ASSEMBLY YET, BUT HOPEFULLY THAT WILL BE PASSED AND SIGNED, AND I HOPE THAT IN THAT INSTANCE THE COUNTY CAN PARTICIPATE IN THAT REGIONAL PROCESS AND REALLY EXTEND OUR EFFORTS ON HIS BEHALF IN HIS NAME, BECAUSE IT IS SO IMPORTANT WHAT HE WAS TRYING TO DO AND HOPEFULLY WE CAN CARRY OUT THAT LEGACY.>>THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER. COMMISSIONER WEEKLY?>>THANK YOU SO MUCH, MADAM CHAIR. NOT ONLY WAS ASSEMBLYMAN THOMPSON A COLLEAGUE OF MINE, BUT A VERY GOOD FRIEND, FORMER CLASSMATE AND CHILDHOOD FRIEND. AS A MATTER OF FACT, WE GREW UP IN VALLEYVIEW, AND TYRONE WAS ALWAYS THE LIFE OF THE PARTY IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD. EVERY YEAR THE VALLEYVIEW PICNIC, HE WOULD BE THE ONE THAT WOULD BE THE BIG HIGHLIGHT. TYRONE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED FOR JUST HIS GREAT SPIRIT WITH SBI, ALWAYS BRINGING IN SPIRIT TO THE YOUNG PEOPLE WE’RE GOING TO MISS THAT THIS YEAR AND DEFINITELY HIS — HE’S AN USHER AT MY CHURCH, THE MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH PASTORED BY DR. ROBERT E. FOWLER SENIOR. I KNOW I WAS AT CHURCH THIS PAST SUNDAY, AND IT WAS SO WEIRD NOT SEEING HIM USHER EVERYBODY INTO THE CHURCH AND, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF OUR PARISHIONERS AT OUR CHURCH ARE VERY SADDENED BY THIS LOSS, BUT HERE IS ANOTHER PRIME EXAMPLE OF, YOU KNOW, WHY WE SHOULD CELEBRATE LIFE EACH AND EVERY DAY AS THE SONG SAY LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE, AND THAT’S WHAT TYRONE WAS ALL ABOUT, LIVING HIS BEST LIFE, AND HE’S TRULY GOING TO BE MISSED. AS A MATTER OF FACT, SPEAKING OF HIS HOME GOING CEREMONY WILL BE THIS FRIDAY WILL BE THE VIEWING OVER AT VICTORY MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH FROM 2:30 UNTIL 6 P.M. AND THEN OF COURSE THE HOME GOING CELEBRATION FOR ASSEMBLYMAN THOMPSON WILL BE AT THE SAME CHURCH, VICTORY MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH, AND IT STARTS AT 11 A.M. ON THIS SATURDAY. HE’S GOING TO BE MISSED BUT WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER BE FORGOTTEN. HERE’S TO MY FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE ASSEMBLYMAN THOMPSON. WHAT AN HONOUR. WE GOT A CHANCE TO APPOINT HIM TO BE A ASSEMBLYMAN AND TO CELEBRATE HIS LIFE TODAY. WHAT AN HONOUR, AND I JUST THANK GOD I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO TRAVEL DOWN HIS PATH. SO MADAM CHAIR, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP AND THANK YOU, MADAM MANAGER, FOR ALLOWING US TO HAVE THIS ON THE AGENDA HERE TODAY. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER WEEKLY, AND I WOULD JUST ASK IN TYRONE’S MEMORY TODAY, BECAUSE HE HAD A HABIT OF MAKING EVERYBODY SMILE AND FORGET ABOUT ANYTHING THAT HAPPENED, THAT EVERYBODY GO OUT AND DO A GOOD TURN AND MAKE SOMEBODY ELSE SMILE TO MAKE THEIR DAY A LITTLE BIT BETTER. SO WITH THAT, THANK YOU, AND WE’LL GO AHEAD AND TAKE A MOMENT OF SILENCE. OKAY, COUNTY MANAGER?>>MADAM CHAIR, THE FIRST ITEM ON YOUR AGENDA IS PUBLIC COMMENT.>>OKAY, THIS IS TIME SET ASIDE FOR PUBLIC COMMENT. I DO — AS MS. COLEMAN’S COMING UP, I DO HAVE A — IS IT JOSE HERALDO? PLEASE COME UP AS WELL. GOOD MORNING, MS. COLEMAN.>>GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS. MY NAME IS MARGARET COLEMAN, AND I’M A SPOKESMAN CONCERNING THE HOUSING, AND ALSO THE HOMELESS. AS YOU ARE ALL STARTING — [INDISCERNIBLE] AND ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION, WHY SHOULD DISCRIMINATION EXIST? AS YOU KNOW, WE ARE ALL THE SAME. [INDISCERNIBLE] LONELY, LOSS AND NO HOPE. THE WAY FORWARD [INDISCERNIBLE] TALKING ABOUT IS 17 AND THE ITEM 17 TO AMEND A FUNDING INCREASE TO A CONTRACTS FOR THE HOMELESS MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM ADMINISTRATION. IF YOU GO APPROVE FUNDINGS AND INCREASE, IT SHOULD NOT ONLY BE JUST FOR FOOD. IT SHOULD BE FOR HOUSING. AS I SPOKE BEFORE. I GAVE YOU A DEPOSITION AND A PROJECT CALLED THE BIG ALONE. I ALSO WANT TO TALK ABOUT A PUBLIC HEARING, AN ACTION PLAN FOR HOUSING AND THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. AND THAT IS THE BIGELOW. IF YOU COULD CALL ME AND LET ME REPRESENT MY PROJECT. I STARTED THIS TYPES OF CLASS OF HUMAN BEINGS, THIS HIGH-CLASS, MIDDLE-CLASS AND LOW-CLASS. HIGH CLASS, THEY CARE NOTHING ABOUT — NOTHING BUT DISCRIMINATION AND THE COLOUR. AND MIDDLE CLASS, THEY WANT TO JUST BE. AND THE LOWER CLASS HAVE BEEN DRIVEN TO DRUGS. AND THIS IS A SOCIETY THAT HAS BEEN PLACED ON A LOT OF THE HOMELESS PEOPLE’S POSITION. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN DISCRIMINATED FOR HOUSING? EVICTION NOTICES. THIS HAD OCCURRED TO ME FOR 38 YEARS IN PLACE OF THE HOUSING AUTHORITY SHARING — NO BUSINESS TAKING MY MONEY AND SUPPLYING THEM. I CAN FUNCTION WITH THIS COURT ORDER AGAIN BECAUSE I HAVE UPDATED IT AND IT IS STILL BINDING IN LITIGATION. YOU MUST COMPLY WITH IT. IT IS STILL IN CONTEMPT OF COURT. TO GO FORWARD AND PUT — SEE IF I CAN HAVE THE SOLICITATE — I DON’T WANT TO GO THAT ROUTE. I’M PART OF IT. I’M PART OF NEVADA. I HAVE A GRANDSON. HE’S PLACED IN A POSITION THAT TAKES HIS LIFE, AND HE WAS SET UP. I WOULD LIKE TO HELP HIM. MY MONEY’S IMPORTANT, AND IT’S [INDISCERNIBLE] THAT YOU CAN GIVE TO ME TODAY. THIS IS A QUESTION.>>GO AHEAD, MS. COLEMAN, YOU ONLY GOT ABOUT FIVE SECONDS LEFT.>>SO THE REASON I JUST — ACTUALLY FOR THAT IS BECAUSE I’M TIRED OF BEING HOMELESS.>>THANK YOU, MS. COLEMAN. GOOD MORNING, SIR. STATE YOUR NAME FOR THE RECORD.>>MY NAME IS JOSEPH HERALDO. I HAVE TWO ITEMS TO MENTION. FIRST ONE, IN THE END OF NOVEMBER, WATER BROKE IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE. I CALLED WATER DISTRICT. IT TOOK THREE DAYS TO COME THERE. WATER WAS POURING ALL OVER THE STREET. AFTER THREE DAYS THEY CAME. THEY FIX IT. THEY PUT TEMPORARY PATCH. THIS WAS END OF NOVEMBER. NOW IT’S ABOUT, WHAT, SIX MONTHS LATER, THERE IS STILL BIG TEMPORARY PATCH OVER THERE. NOBODY’S FIXING. I SPOKE WITH WATER DISTRICT. THEY SAID THEY ARE TOO BUSY BECAUSE THE COMPANY WHICH IS REALLY DOING THE THINGS, IT’S BUSY, BUT THIS IS — WHAT IS IT, SIX MONTHS, SIX AND A HALF MONTHS, AND NOBODY’S DOING ANYTHING. I SPOKE WITH WATER DISTRICT. THEY SAID THEY ARE BUSY. I DON’T SEE ANY EXCUSE IN SIX AND A HALF MONTHS.>>OKAY. IS THIS YOUR CORRECT ADDRESS ON THIS CARD?>>YES, 4429, INEZ DRIVE. SECOND THING IS ABOUT CAPPING MY WEALTH. IN 1980S, ME AND A COUPLE OF FRIENDS BOUGHT TWO AND A HALF ACRE ON WEST CAVERN AND BUFFALO. WE DEVELOP THE THING. THERE WAS NO WATER THERE, SO WE WENT TO WATER DISTRICT BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE A LOT, HALF-ACRE LOT, WITHOUT WATER IS WORTH NOTHING. SO WE WENT TO WATER DISTRICT, AND WATER DISTRICT TOLD US THAT THERE WILL BE NO WATER RUNNING ON BUFFALO BECAUSE IT’S INTERSECTION, BUFFALO AND GOWIN, FOR ANOTHER TWO TO THREE YEARS. SO WE APPLY FOR THE STATE OF NEVADA PUTTING A WELL. IT TOOK US TWO MONTHS, YOU KNOW, FROM THE TIME WE APPLIED TO THE WELL TO DRILL IT TO GET WATER. IN TWO MONTHS FROM A TIME WE PUT THE WELL IN AND START PRODUCING WATER, WE PUT IRRIGATION WELL, NOT DOMESTIC WELL, IRRIGATION WELL. BY THE TIME WE START PUMPING WATER, TWO MONTHS LATER, GUESS WHAT? THERE WAS WATER RUNNING ON THE WATER DISTRICT RAN THE WATER TO PAINTED DESERT. SO YOU KNOW, WATER DISTRICT KEPT US IN THE BLIND, YOU KNOW. I SPENT $14,000 JUST FOR THE WELL PLUS PUMP PLUS $4,000 METAL TANK. INSULT TO THIS INJURY, YOU KNOW, THIS WAS IN 1980S. SUDDENLY THEY CAP MY WELL BECAUSE REASON IS WATER DISTRICT PUT TWO BIG COMMERCIAL WELLS. ONE IS ON GAVIN, LESS THAN HALF A MILE. ONE IS ON BUFFALO, ABOUT THREE QUARTER MILE. THOSE ARE HUGE COMMERCIAL 2,000 FEET DEEP WELL. MINE WAS ONLY 400. THEY CAP MY WELL AGAINST MY WISHES. THERE ARE THREE HOUSES OVER THERE, AND THOSE PEOPLE GOT CONNECTED BY WATER DISTRICT. WHEN I ASKED TO BE CONNECTED, THEY SAID IT WILL COST ME $18,000 TO GET PUT, YOU KNOW, CONNECTION TO MY HALF ACRE, WHICH IS REALLY RIDICULOUS. I SPEND $14,000, THEY DO THAT HERE, I HAVE — IT’S NOT THE DOMESTIC. I HAVE HERE COPY IRRIGATION WELL. THEY DID IT WITHOUT MY, YOU KNOW, PERMISSION, AND YOU KNOW, I DON’T KNOW, YOU KNOW, WHAT TO DO. THE PEOPLE SAY THERE IS NEW LAW, YOU KNOW. THEY CAN CAP THE WELL, BUT THIS WELL DRY OUT BECAUSE THEY PUT COMMERCIAL BIG 2,000 FEET DEEP WELL. SO YOU KNOW, WATER LEVEL IN THE DISTRICT IS GOING DOWN, SO THEY PURPOSELY RUINED ME, WATER DISTRICT — YOU KNOW, WATER DISTRICT RUINED ME BECAUSE THEY PUT COMMERCIAL WELL NEXT TO MY PROPERTY. SO HOW CAN I REALLY PAY NOW $18,000, YOU KNOW, I AM IN HOLE, INCLUDING A WELL PLUS PUTTING WATER TANK AND EVERYTHING ELSE, AND THEY ARE HIDING EVERYBODY WATER DISTRICT. OH, THERE IS A NEW LAW WAS PASSED. THEY DIDN’T GRANDFATHER ME, SO I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS IDEA. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTION?>>I DO HAVE A SUGGESTION. I’M GOING TO HELP YOU OUT HERE. YOU ACTUALLY LIVE ABOUT FIVE MINUTES FROM ME, SO I HAVE PRETTY GOOD IDEA. THE LADY WITH THE LONG BLOND HAIR, SHE’S GOING TO GET YOUR PHONE NUMBER, AND I’M GOING TO CALL YOU THIS AFTERNOON, AND I HAVE — I’LL WALK YOU THROUGH WHERE WE ARE AT IN THE PROCESS, AND I’LL ALSO DRIVE PAST YOUR HOME ON THE WAY HOME.>>THANK YOU.>>UH-HUH. AND SHE’LL HELP YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. GOOD MORNING.>>GOOD MORNING. MY NAME IS MARIA VELENZONA, AND I’M WITH MR. ATKINS ON HERE. I HAVE NEVER SPOKEN IN A PLACE LIKE THIS. I’M A RETIRED HEALTH CARE PROVIDER, AND I WATCH ON TV ABOUT THE NEED OF LAS VEGAS OF A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE SLEEP AT NIGHT INSTEAD OF HAVING THEM SLEEP ON BENCHES AND PARKS OR ON THE STREET. AND IT IS A SHAME FOR LAS VEGAS BEING RICH, AND WE SEE THESE PEOPLE BY THE TOURISTS THAT WE CANNOT TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN RESIDENTS HERE. I’M SADDENED BY THE FACT THAT MR. THOMPSON IS PASSING AWAY BECAUSE OF HIS HEART TOWARDS THE HOMELESS PEOPLE. NOW WE HAVE SEEN WITH MR. ATKINSON HERE SOME PLACES THAT ARE ABUNDANT. THERE’S A SPECIAL PLACE WE START ALONG WASHINGTON AND SOME PLACES, AND THAT’S WHAT WE COULD DO. AND I BELIEVE THERE’S A PROGRAM NOW THAT IF WE CAN HAVE DORMITORY LIKE FOR NIGHT, FOR THESE PEOPLE, WHICH WE ARE INTERESTED IN DOING SO, WE CAN REHAB THESE SPACES, MAKE IT LIVABLE AND PLEASANT LOOKING TO THE NEIGHBOURHOOD SO IT’S NOT GOING TO BE A PLACE WHERE THERE’S PEOPLE HANGING OUT DURING THE NIGHT OR EARLY MORNING. WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT IT IS ACCORDING TO THE NEIGHBOURHOOD. SO THIS IS WHAT WE WANT TO DO. WE LIKE TO HAVE A PLACE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT ONLY FROM 7:00 TO 7 IN THE MORNING, AND THEN THEY GO ON THEIR OWN. WE WOULD HAVE TO PROVIDE COTS AT NIGHT. WE CHANGE THE SHEETS EVERY DAY. WE WILL HAVE TO HAVE SOME ELECTRIC ALSO TO THE PLACE, AND WE INTEND TO PUT POTTY, THOSE PORTABLE POTTIES JUST FOR THE OVERNIGHT STAY. BUT WE NEED SOME HELP TO INITIATE THIS. AND THIS IS FOR THE LAS VEGAS GOOD LOOKS. WE ARE TOURIST SPOT. AND IF WE WOULD BE SUCCESSFUL IN THIS, MR. ATKINSON AND I WOULD LIKE TO BE A MODEL TO OTHER AREAS IN TOWN WHERE THERE ARE HOMELESS. WE WOULD LIKE TO START OUT WITH 20 AND WE WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE TO HAVE THEM EITHER WALK TO THE PLACE OR WE HAVE HELP THEM IN PROVIDING TRANSPORTATION TO THE PLACE FOR OVERNIGHT STAY ONLY. 14 SECONDS. THAT’S ALL THAT I CAN TELL YOU, MA’AM.>>THANK YOU.>>SO WE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO START THIS.>>THAT LOVELY BLOND LADY’S GOING TO TAKE YOUR PHONE NUMBER, AND I’LL CALL YOU THIS AFTERNOON. SHE’S BUSY TODAY. OKAY. ANYBODY ELSE WISHING TO SPEAK ON PUBLIC COMMENT? SEEING NO ONE, I’LL GO AHEAD AND CLOSE THE PUBLIC COMMENT. ITEM NO. 2 IS APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING ON MARCH 19, 2019, AND THE SPECIAL MEETING ON MARCH 25, 2019.>>OH, I HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER BRANT TO APPROVE THE MINUTES. ANY FURTHER COMMENTS? SEEING NONE, PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE. MOTION PASSES.>>ITEM NO. 3 IS THE APPROVAL OF THE AGENDA WITH THE INCLUSION OF ANY EMERGENCY ITEMS AND DELETION OF ANY ITEMS.

MOTION PASSES.>>WE CAN NOW MOVE TO SECTION 2 OF YOUR AGENDA, WHICH ARE YOUR CONSENT — WHICH IS YOUR CONSENT AGENDA. PLEASE NOTE THAT ITEMS NOS. 4 THROUGH 69 COMPRISE OF YOUR CONSENT AGENDA.>>OKAY.

I KNOW FOR SURE HAVING BEEN OUT AT THE RANCH THIS LAST WEEKEND THAT IT’S DEFINITELY VERY DRY OUT THERE. THE THEME OF WILDFIRE AWARENESS MONTH THIS YEAR IS WILDFIRES HAPPEN IS YOUR COMMUNITY PREPARED. I WANT TO THANK THESE AGENCIES FOR THE WORK THAT THEY DO ALL YEAR TO MAKE OUR RESIDENTS AWARE OF ACTIONS WE CAN TAKE TO REDUCE THE THREAT OF WILDFIRE. THEY ACTIVELY SUPPORT A PROGRAM COULD LIVING WITH FIRE. THE PROGRAM HAS A WEBSITE THAT CONTAINS A WEALTH OF FIRE SAFETY INFORMATION FOR THE PUBLIC AT WWW.LIVINGWITHFIRE.INFO. WITH THE FIRE IN THE SUMMER OF 2013, WE ALL SAW FIRST-HAND THAT SOUTHERN NEVADA IS AT RISK FOR SERIOUS WILDFIRES. IT’S IMPORTANT THAT WE ALL DO OUR PART TO MINIMIZE ANY HUMAN ACTIVITY THAT COULD POTENTIALLY START A FIRE OR MAKE IT WORSE IF ONE SHOULD GET STARTED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT PROGRAM AND EFFORTS TO PROMOTE PUBLIC SAFETY AND SAVE LIVES.>>CHIEF, YOU WANT TO GRAB THE PROCLAMATION. ALL RIGHT. SHOULD WE HAVE EVERYBODY? ALL RIGHT. LET’S HEAR FROM YOU. >>ASSISTANT CHIEF OF CLARK COUNTY FIRE. YOU KNOW, OUR THEME THIS YEAR IS WILDFIRES HAPPEN. WE ALL KNOW THEY DO, AND IS YOUR COMMUNITY PREPARED? AND I HAVE TO SAY THAT SOUTHERN NEVADA ENJOYS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS OF AGENCIES ANYWHERE IN THE STATE. EVERYBODY UP HERE WORKS TOGETHER YEAR ROUND, FIRE SEASON, OFF-SEASON TO MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE READY FOR THE FIRE SEASON WHEN IT ROLLS AROUND, WHICH TYPICALLY STARTS IN MAY. WE HAVE AN AMAZING GROUP OF PEOPLE, AND I CAN’T THANK THEM ENOUGH FOR ALL THEY DO TO SUPPORT THE CLARK COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT AND VICE VERSA. AND CHIEF, THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT. WE HAVE PEOPLE HERE TODAY FROM THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICES, LAKE MEAD, THE FOREST SERVICE, THE BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT, NEVADA DIVISION OF FORESTRY, MOUNT CHARLESTON FIRE PROTECTION AGENCY, AND I THINK — I DIDN’T FORGET ANYBODY. WELL, I SAID CLARK COUNTY.

THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU AGAIN. WE’LL GO AHEAD AND TAKE THE PHOTO. [ Applause ]>>NEXT WE HAVE ITEM NO. 71, WHICH IS TO PRESENT A PROCLAMATION TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOUR SUSAN G. KOMEN NEVADA FOR ITS CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE COMMUNITY AND TO PROCLAIM MAY 7, 2019, SUSAN G. KOMEN DAY IN CLARK COUNTY.>>THANK YOU. CHELSEA BRAMBLE, WHO IS THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE SUSAN G. KOMEN ORGANIZATION AND TONIA FLANAGAN, WHO IS A CLARK COUNTY, A PROMINENT CLARK COUNTY EMPLOYEE, WHO IS BOARD PRESIDENT, ARE JOINING US TODAY. THE SUSAN G. KOMEN ORGANIZATION WAS FOUNDED NATIONALLY IN 1982 AND INCORPORATED IN NEVADA IN 1996 TO SUPPORT UNINSURED, UNDER-INSURED AND LOW-INCOME MEN AND WOMEN IN HELPING TO RESEARCH, PROVIDE EDUCATIO AND FUND OTHER RELATED ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE REDUCTION AND THE EVENTUAL CURE OF BREAST CANCER. AND OVER THAT TIME, THIS ORGANIZATION AND OTHERS WHO FOLLOW THEIR EXAMPLE HAS MADE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE. AND IN FACT, FROM THE YEAR 1989 TO 2016 THERE WAS A 39% REDUCTION IN THE DEATHS FROM BREAST CANCER, AND WE APPRECIATE ALL THEY DO. EACH DAY IN NEVADA, SIX PEOPLE ARE DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST CANCER, AND EACH WEEK FIVE PEOPLE DIE IN THIS STATE FROM THAT DISEASE. WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE THAT SINCE ’82 SUSAN G. KOMEN HAS FUNDED $988 MILLION IN RESEARCH AND CONTRIBUTED $2.2 BILLION IN EDUCATION SCREENING AND TREATMENT TO HELP MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ACROSS THE WORLD. THEY HAVE INVESTED MORE THAN 12 MILLION TO HELP FAMILIES RIGHT HERE IN NEVADA, AND THIS YEAR MORE THAN 270,000 MEN AND WOMEN IN THE U.S. ARE EXPECTED TO BE DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST CANCER, AND 42,000, MORE THAN 42,000 ARE EXPECTED TO DIE. AND THAT’S WHY KOMEN’S WORK IS SO INCREDIBLY VALUABLE TO US. COMMISSIONER JONES AND I WERE AT THE KOMEN MORE THAN NEVADA PINK WALK SATURDAY MORNING AT THE DISTRICT. I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY THOUSANDS YOU HAD. WHAT — DID YOU FINALLY GET A COUNT?>>4500.>>IT WAS A LOT. IT LOOKED LIKE 20,000 TO US. IN ANY CASE, THERE ARE A LOT OF COMMITTED PEOPLE IN THIS COMMUNITY, NONE OF WHOM ARE ANY MORE COMMITTED THAN THESE PEOPLE, AND WE APPRECIATE THE EXAMPLE YOU SET FOR US, THE INCREDIBLE WORK THAT IS DONE, AND IT OUGHT TO MOTIVATE EACH AND ALL OF US TO FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE TO DO WHAT WE CAN TO HELP SUPPORT ORGANIZATIONS LIKE KOMEN AND KOMEN IN PARTICULAR, AND TO MOTIVATE OURSELVES TO ENSURE THAT THOSE CLOSE TO US GET SCREENED, GET EDUCATED, GET TREATED. THE KINDS OF THINGS THAT WILL PREVENT THE LOSS OF LIFE THAT IS SO TRAGIC AND AFFECTS SO MANY. SO ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS, WE RECOGNIZE AND HONOUR SUSAN G. KOMEN NEVADA FOR COMMUNITY ON THIS DAY, MAY 7, 2019, AND WE PROCLAIM IT SUSAN G. KOMEN NEVADA DAY IN CLARK COUNTY. [ Applause ]>>I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH. WE ARE AN ORGANIZATION BUILT UPON ITS VOLUNTEERS AND THE COMMUNITY, AND WE WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO DO ANY OF THE WORK HERE WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT. THIS REALLY HELPS US TURN THAT AWARENESS INTO ACTION AS WE CONTINUE TO FIGHT THIS DISEASE EVERY DAY, BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT IT AFFECTS SO MANY NEVADANS. OUR BOARD PRESIDENT, TONIA FLANAGAN, IS ONE OF THOSE, SO SHE FIGHTS TIRELESSLY BECAUSE SHE HERSELF IS A THREE-TIME BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR. SO WITH THAT SAID, I’D LOVE TO TURN THIS OVER TO TONIA.>>GOOD MORNING. THANK YOU TO ALL THE COMMISSIONERS ON THE CLARK COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR RECOGNIZING KOMEN AND BRINGING AWARENESS TO THIS. AS CHELSEA MENTIONED, I AM A THREE-TIME SURVIVOR. I LOST MY MOTHER TO BREAST CANCER AS WELL, AND IT SEEMS EVERY WEEK OR AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH, WHICH IS TOO OFTEN, SOMEONE CALLS ME AND SAYS CAN I HAVE SOMEONE CALL YOU. I’VE HAD TWO IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS. CAN I HAVE THAT PERSON CALL YOU AND TALK TO YOU, WHETHER IT’S ABOUT GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF BEING TREATED OR THE FOLLOW-UP AFTERMATH OF RECONSTRUCTION OR SOMETHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH THIS JOURNEY. SO IT IS SO IMPORTANT THAT WE KEEP IT FRONT AND CENTRE. I KNOW WE SEE PINK EVERYWHERE, BUT STILL, THERE’S MORE TO BE DONE. THERE ARE MORE LIVES TO BE SAVED. AND I CAN’T STRESS THE IMPORTANCE OF EARLY DETECTION ENOUGH, SO THANK YOU AGAIN TO COMMISSIONER JONES AND COMMISSIONER GIBSON FOR COMING OUT ON SATURDAY. IT WAS A GREAT DAY. THANK YOU TO COMMISSIONER WEEKLY AND ALL OF THE COMMISSIONERS WHO HAVE — COMMISSIONER NAF AND MARILYN TO COMMISSIONER KIRKPATRICK AND SEGGERBLOOM FOR ALL THE ATTENTIN YOU PLACE ON THIS CAUSE AND SUPPORTING IT.

WELL, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS TIME WE’RE RECOGNIZING SOMEONE WHO HAS IMPECCABLE VOCAL SKILLS. AND YOU KNOW, I COULD HAVE BEEN A GRAMMY AWARD WINNER MYSELF, MADAM CHAIR, BUT I LEFT IT TO CHRISTIAN TO HANDLE THAT FOR US. NOT ONLY DID THIS YOUNG MAN COMPETE LAST YEAR IN THE STATE SOLO MALE VOCAL COMPETITION, AND WAS GRANTED STATE CHAMPION, BUT HE WENT BACK AND HAD A REPEAT. HE WAS ALMOST LIKE THE OLD LAKERS, YOU KNOW, OF BACK-TO-BACK. AND SO WE’RE SO VERY HONOURED TO HAVE CHRISTIAN HERE WITH US TODAY. CHRISTIAN, WE WANTED TO RECOGNIZE YOU ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL MELGDZIAN TO JUST TELL YOU HOW PROUD WE ARE. MAN, WE WANT YOU TO KEEP ON USING YOUR VOICE AND KEEP ON SINGING, AND WE WANT TO RECOGNIZE YOU AS THE BEST MALE VOCAL SOLOIST FOR THE STATE OF NEVADA FOR 2019.

THEY HAVE BEEN TRAVELLING ALL ACROSS THE STATE WITH CHRISTIAN, AND CHRISTIAN RECEIVED A SCHOLARSHIP, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO APPROVE UNLV. WE’RE KEEPING THAT TALENT RIGHT HERE IN LAS VEGAS, AND CHRISTIAN ACTUALLY JUST CAME FROM A BIG VOCAL EVENT SOMEWHERE OUT OF THE COUNTRY. WHERE DID YOU GO?>>I WENT TO AUSTRIA, AND I WENT TO VIENNA AND SALSBERG, YES.>>I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE THAT IS, BUT AT ANY RATE, OBVIOUSLY YOU HAD A GREAT TIME AND YOU DID A GREAT JOB, AND WE ARE SO VERY, VERY PROUD OF YOU. CONGRATULATIONS, CHRISTIAN. MOVE ON IN AND TAKE THIS GREAT PHOTO. [ Applause ] HOLD ON. LET ME GET IT TOGETHER. ALL RIGHT. CHRISTIAN SHELTON, EVERYBODY. THANK YOU, CHRISTIAN. [ Applause ]>>COMMISSIONERS, WE DO HAVE A COUPLE OF EXTRA PROCLAMATIONS AND RECOGNITIONS. WE HAVE A PROCLAMATION TO PRESENT TO THE BRICK WAY CYCLING TO THEIR SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY.>>THANK YOU. I WANT TO INVITE UP THE CO-FOUNDERS OF BREAK AWAY CYCLING, JOANNA PYATT AND MARK WIEMER. WHILE THEY ARE COMING UP, SOME OF YOU MAY KNOW THAT CYCLING IS A SPORT THAT IS NEAR AND DEAR TO MY HEART. I KIND OF GOT MY CYCLING CUFF LINKS ON TODAY, AND AS WE CELEBRATE MAY AS NATIONAL BIKE MONTH, WE WANTED TO RECOGNIZE BREAK AWAY CYCLING FOR THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO OUR COMMUNITY. SO JUST TO TELL YOU — WANT TO TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT BREAK AWAY CYCLE. BREAK AWAY WAS FOUNDED IN 2016 WITH THE PURPOSE OF DONATING BIKES, LOX AND HELMETS TO UNDERPRIVILEGED KIDS HERE IN CLARK COUNTY. BREAK AWAY PARTNERS WITH THE SCHOOL DISTRICT TO PROMOTE SAFE SIMPLE AND SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION TO SCHOOL THROUGH BIKE RODEOS ON SCHOOL CAMPUSES. TODAY BREAK AWAY HAS DONATED NEARLY 900 BIKES WITH LOCKS TO CLARK COUNTY KIDS, PLUS 1700 BIKE HELMETS, AND THIS WEEKEND WE ARE VERY EXCITED, YOU’LL HEAR A LITTLE BIT A THIS LATER, BUT WE ARE REOPENING PEACE PARK OUT IN SANDY VALLEY, AND IF YOU’VE EVER BEEN OUT TO SANDY VALLEY, YOU KNOW THEY DON’T GET A WHOLE LOT OF LOVE OUT THERE, PARTICULARLY FOR CYCLING, SO BREAK AWAY HAS OFFERED TO COME ON OUT AND PARTNER WITH US AT OUR PARKS AND REC DEPARTMENT FOR THE GRAND REOPENING OF PEACE PARK. THEY ARE DONATING 25 NEW BIKES, HELMETS AND LOCKS IN A RAFFLE FOR KIDS OUT IN SANDY VALLEY. SO LET’S GIVE THEM A ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR THAT, RIGHT? [ Applause ] AND ONE OF THE EXCITING FEATURES ABOUT THE NEW PARK IS THAT IT’S GOING TO HAVE A HALF-MILE PAVED TRAIL THAT WILL ALLOW KIDS OUT IN SANDY VALLEY WHO DON’T HAVE A LOT OF PAVED ROADS AT ALL TO HAVE A SAFE PLACE FOR THEM TO RIDE THEIR BIKES. BREAK AWAY IS PARTNERING WITH OUR FRIENDS OVER AT LAS VEGAS CYCLERY TO DO A BIKE REPAIR STATION OUT THERE DURING THE EVENT. AND WE JUST WANTED TO THANK THEM FOR THEIR COMMITMENT TO OUR COMMUNITY. I KNOW I’VE BEEN OUT ON RIDES WITH THESE GUYS, AND REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THEY’RE DOING FOR OUR COMMUNITY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE ABLE TO RIDE SAFE AND INTRODUCE OUR KIDS TO THE SPORT OF CYCLING. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH. [ Applause ] I PRESENT THIS PROCLAMATION AND APPRECIATE ALL YOU GUYS ARE DOING AS WE CELEBRATE NATIONAL BIKE MONTH. SO I’M GOING TO PASS THIS ALONG TO YOU.>>OH. HI, MY NAME IS JOANNA. THIS IS MARK. WE FOUNDED THIS CYCLING TEAM SOLELY AS A LABOUR OF LOVE, AND IT TRULY IS. WITHOUT ALL OF OUR PARTNERS, AND ALL THE LITTLE NAMES AND STUFF WE HAVE PAINTED ALL OVER OUR CLOTHING, WE WOULDN’T DO THIS. WE’RE THE VEHICLE BY WHICH THEIR MONEY GETS — PURCHASES BICYCLES AND PUTS THEM UNDERNEATH THESE KIDS. WE PARTNERED WITH CCSD TO KIND OF INVENT OR DEVELOP PROGRAMS THAT ENCOURAGED THE KIDS TO COME TO SCHOOL, WRITE ESSAYS ABOUT THE — EXCUSE ME. IMPORTANCE OF EXERCISE. THE IMPORTANCE OF OWNING OR RIDING A BICYCLE. SO NOT ONLY ARE THEY WINNING A BIKE, BUT THEY ARE EARNING IT, AND WE ARE HOPING TO SEE AN IMPROVEMENT IN ATTENDANCE AND FITNESS RESPONSIBILITY, ALL THE THINGS THAT THIS BRINGS. SO WITHOUT THE HELP OF OUR WONDERFUL TEAMMATES AND ALL OF OUR SPONSORS, WE COULDN’T DO IT, AND WE APPRECIATE YOU GUYS ACKNOWLEDGING US FOR THAT. THANK YOU SO MUCH. EXCUSE ME. I HAVE A TICKLE IN MY THROAT. PARDON ME.>>LET’S GIVE IT UP FOR BREAK AWAY CYCLING. [ Applause ]>>COMMISSIONERS, WE HAVE ONE MORE. A RECOGNITION TO THE CLARK COUNTY A TEAM FOR THEIR COORDINATION IN PUTTING ON THE FAMILY FEAST OR FEST EVENT, AND THIS IS BY COMMISSIONER NAFT. >>THANK YOU.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE STAFF AS WELL AS OUR OWN STAFF AT WATER RECLAMATION DISTRICT FOR THEIR EFFORTS OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS TO UPDATE THIS STANDARD BEFORE YOU. THIS REGIONALLY SUPPORTED STANDARD WAS LAST UPDATED IN 2009. THE STANDARD’S INTENDED TO IMPROVE SAFETY, AWARENESS AND COMMUNICATION, AS WELL AS TO PROMOTE OPERATIONAL AND MAINTENANCE CONSISTENCY AND ALSO TO ENHANCE SYSTEM RELIABILITY. THE AGENCY’S WORKING TOGETHER ALSO CONDUCTED OUTREACH EFFORTS TO THE KEY STAKEHOLDERS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY, THE DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION DEVELOPMENT FOLKS, THAT IS, AND ALLOWED THEM INPUT INTO THE STANDARD. THE DESIGN OVER ALL STANDARDS OVER THE YEARS HAVE RESPECTFULLY SUPPORTED THE VARIOUS AGENCIES, AS WELL AS THE COMMUNITY VERY WELL, AND THIS UPDATE WILL ALLOW US TO ACHIEVE AND/OR SUPPORT AND HELP THE FURTHER SUCCESS OF THE WASTE WATER COLLECTION SYSTEMS.>>THANK YOU. DOES THAT COMPLETE YOUR PRESENTATION?>>THAT DOES CONCLUDE THE COMMENTS.>>OKAY, THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING. I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT WE TRY TO AVOID THE USE OF LIFT STATIONS. SO WHY BUILD THE LIFT STATIONS? WELL, BASICALLY IT’S ALWAYS OUR INTENT TO RELY ON GRAVITY TO MOVE WASTE WATER ACROSS THE VALLEY. WE DO HAVE 23 LIFT STATIONS WITHIN OUR CURRENT SYSTEM THAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED OVER THE MANY DECADES PRIOR TO US. WE HAVE TAKEN THOSELESSONS LEARNED AND THOSE EXPERIENCES WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION TO DEVELOP THIS STANDARD. THE STANDARDS ITSELF COMPOSE — BASICALLY IMPROVE OUR SAFETY, OUR CONSISTENCY AND RELIABILITY FOR ALL THE MAINTENANCE AS WELL AS OPERATION ACTIVITIES FOR THE YEARS TO COME. THE DISTRICT ALSO CONDUCTED PUBLIC OUTREACH WITH THE COMMUNITY, KEY SLDS, PROVIDED THEM — STAKEHOLDERED, PROVIDED THEM OPPORTUNITIES FOR INPUT. THIS WILL BE UTILIZED IN NEW DESIGNS AS WELL AS REHABILITATION AND RETROFITS OF ANY PUBLIC WASTE WATER LIFT STATION OR FORCED MAIN. MADAM CHAIR, MR. CHAIR, THAT CONCLUDES MY COMMENTS.>>OKAY. THANK YOU, SIR. THIS ALSO IS A PUBLIC HEARING. I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING. ANYBODY WISHING TO SPEAK, PLEASE COME FORWARD, STATE YOUR NAME FOR THE RECORD. SEEING NO ONE, I’M GOING TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND I’M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO THE BOARD. COMMISSIONER BROWN HAS MOVED FOR APPROVAL ON ITEM NO. 74. ANY FURTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? SEEING NONE, PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE. MOTION PASSES. >>THANK YOU, MEMBERS. >>THANK YOU FOR OWL YOUR WORK ON THIS.>>ITEM NO. 75 IS TO CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE FISCAL YEAR 2019 ACTION PLAN FOR HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. MADAM CHAIR, BEFORE YOU OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING, WE DO HAVE A PRESENTATION FROM STAFF.>>GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS. KRISTEN COOPER, CLARK COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICE. AND THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE 2019 DLSH/2020 ACTION PLAN. THE PLAN MUST BE SUBMITTED TO BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE GRANT FUNDING OF APPROXIMATELY $16.4 MILLION. THE TOTAL FUNDING REPRESENTED IN THE PLAN IS APPROXIMATELY $18.5 MILLION WITH THE ADDITION OF STATE HOME AND LOW-INCOME HOUSING TRUST MONIES. THE 2019 ACTION PLAN OUTLINES THE PROJECTS THAT WILL BE FUNDED IN FISCAL YEAR ’19-20. ALL THE PROJECTS WERE REVIEWED AND APPROVED BY THE COMMISSION ON APRIL 16, 2019. AND THE FINAL FISCAL YEAR 2019 ACTION PLAN WILL BE ON THE CONSENT AGENDA FOR COMMISSION APPROVAL ON JUNE 4, AND WILL INCORPORATE ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS AND ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGES. AND I HAVE A VERY SHORT PRESENTATION. REPRESENTS THE FUNDING, THE 2019 ACTION PLAN FUNDING. AS YOU CAN SEE, WE HAVE $3.6 MILLION COMING IN FOR THE HOME INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIPS PROGRAM. AND THERE IS STATE MONEY IN THE TRUST FUNDS, AND WE HAVE OTHER FUNDS THAT ARE PUT IN FINANCE CANADA FOR OFF-CYCLE FUNDING THAT WE RECEIVE BRINGING FORWARD FOR PRIOR YEARS. SO AT A TOTAL OF $10.1 MILLION IN HOME AND LIFT. AND THEN 650,000 IN EMERGENCY CONCLUSIONS GRANT AND 7.7 MILLION APPROXIMATELY IN CDBG. SO ON THE THAT, WE’RE WORKING TO COMPLETE THE FIVE-YEAR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN, AND WE HAVE SOME FUNDS THAT ARE ALLOCATED FOR TWO CAPITAL PROJECTS, BUT WE ARE LOOKING FOR SHOVEL-READY PROJECTS AT THIS POINT BECAUSE WE HAVE TO MEET OUR 1.5 ALLOCATION — WE HAVE TO EXPEND 1.5 — SORRY. WE CAN’T HAVE ON HAND MORE THAN 1.5 RATIO OF CDBG FUNDS AT MAY 2 OF EVERY YEAR. AND THEN OUR EMERGENCY SOLUTIONS FOCUSED ON YOUTH, FAMILIES AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. AND WE ARE DOING RAPID RE-HOUSING WITH THOSE FUNDS AND EMERGENCY SHELTER. I JUST WANTED TO REMIND YOU OF YOUR HOME PROJECTS THAT YOU APPROVED LAST MEETING, AND WE HAVE A TOTAL OF 421 UNITS. THE MAJORITY OF THOSE, OTHER THAN THE 39 IN MESQUITE ARE NEW UNITS THAT WILL BE UNDER CONSTRUCTION. WE ALSO HAVE PREVIOUSLY APPROVED PROJECTS THAT ARE WHAT WE CALL UNDER DEVELOPMENT, WHICH MEANS THEY ARE NOT YET COMING OUT OF THE GROUND, BUT THAT THEY WILL BE IN THE NEAR FUTURE, AND WE HAVE 324 OF THOSE UNITS. AND THEN WE HAVE ALSO PREVIOUSLY APPROVED BUT ALSO NOW ALREADY UNDER CONSTRUCTION OUR 403 UNITS OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING. IT GIVES US A TOTAL OF A MILLION — OH, SORRY, A MILLION. I WISH. 1,209 AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS THAT ARE NEW THAT WILL BE COMING ON-LINE IN THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS. AND THEN THIS BREAKS DOWN THE PERCENTAGE AMI THAT IT — THAT THEY TARGET. SO YOU CAN SEE THAT MOST OF THEM AT THIS INCOME OR BURKINA FASO WITH A FEW OF THEM BEING AT THE REALLY, REALLY LOW INCOME, WHICH IS WHERE WE HAVE A HUGE NEED. AND THAT’S WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU.>>OKAY, THANK YOU. THAT COMPLETES YOUR PRESENTATION? OKAY. THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING. I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND OPEN UP THE PUBLIC HEARING. ANYBODY WISHING TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? MS. COLEMAN.>>YES, MY NAME IS MARGARET ANN COLEMAN. I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM DUE TO THE FACT IS LOW-INCOME PEOPLE SUCH AS MYSELF, THAT IS UNDER 700, 800, WE CAN’T AFFORD HOUSING BECAUSE THEY WANT FIRST AND LAST AND CLEANUP FEE IN THESE DEVELOPMENT. THE PEOPLE THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN THE MONEY TO, SUCH AS THE SNDH, THEY ARE NOT SUPPLYING HOUSING. THEY ARE ONLY GETTING YOU ON THE LIST. LIKE I SAID, I’VE BEEN HERE TWO YEARS. AND — TO THE HOUSING AUTHORITY MEETING. SHE DID NOTHING. YOU HAVE TO START PAYING ATTENTION TO THE EMPLOYEES. [INDISCERNIBLE] THEY CAN STEP ACROSS THE LINE AND SUPPLYING TO THE PEOPLE. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, MS. COLEMAN. ANYBODY ELSE WISHING TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND CLOSE THE PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD AND TURN IT OVER TO THE BOARD. DOES THE BOARD HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? ALL RIGHT. I GUESS I’LL START THEN. SO — AND I JUST WANT TO BE CLEAR, THOUGH, THIS IS — SOME OF THIS IS PART OF OUR OVERALL HOMELESS PLAN WHEN IT COMES TO UNITS, BUT SOME OF IT IS GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE WHILE TO GET IT GOING, CORRECT?>>YES, THAT’S CORRECT. THE AVERAGE TIME IS ABOUT TWO YEARS FROM THE TIME IT’S FUNDED.>>AND SO WE ALREADY HAVE, IF YOU GO BACK TO THAT, WE ALREADY HAVE, WHAT DID YOU SAY, 421 UNITS THAT ARE ON THE — GETTING READY TO GO, 324 ARE ALREADY FUNDED, CORRECT?>>CORRECT. SO 324 ARE ALREADY FUNDED. THE NEW LIST, WE WON’T RECEIVE THAT FUNDING UNTIL — IT STARTS JULY 1, BUT WE WON’T RECEIVE IT UNTIL AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER. AND THEN THE ONES THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE UNDER CONSTRUCTION, SO THAT ARE COMING OUT OF THE GROUND AND ARE AT VARIOUS STAGES OF COMPLETION, IS 503 UNITS.>>SO CAN I ASK, I WANT TO ASK THE QUESTION: SO HOW DO YOU FIND OUT WHEN THESE UNITS COME ON-LINE? DO WE ALREADY HAVE PEOPLE ASSESSED THROUGH THE SYSTEM? SO I’LL USE BONNIE LANE APARTMENTS. THAT IS A PHENOMENAL FACILITY. WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE GREAT PARTNERS LIKE ACCESSIBLE SPACE, BUT THERE’S 250 PEOPLE ON A WAITING LIST OVER THERE. SO HOW DO YOU GET ON A LIST SO THAT WHEN THESE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS COME UP PEOPLE ARE READY, THEY KNOW HOW TO GET IN THERE, BECAUSE WHAT I’LL TELL YOU IS — AND EVEN OVERTON, RIGHT? WE’VE BEEN RE-DOING THE ONES FROM THE LAST YEAR, AND IT’S BEEN AMAZING HOW WE’RE DOING, BUT PEOPLE ARE — AND I’LL USE MY NEIGHBOR AS AN EXAMPLE. 80 YEARS OLD, RIGHT? SHE GETS $800 A MONTH, AND SHE JUST — IF IT WEREN’T FOR OUR FAMILY FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HELP HER, SHE WOULD NEED A LOCATION LIKE THIS. SO HOW DO YOU GET IN THAT SYSTEM TO GET ON THE LIST FOR WHEN IT’S READY? AND I MEAN, YOU MAY HAVE TO MOVE A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT TIMES IN-BETWEEN THAT, BUT AT SOME POINT, HOW DO WE ENSURE — HOW DO WE TELL PEOPLE HOW TO DO THAT?>>WELL, PART OF IT IS THAT EACH DEVELOPER AND MANAGEMENT COMPANY HAS TO HAVE AN AFFIRMATIVE MARKETING PLAN. SO THEY DO GO OUT AND ADVERTISE, AND WHAT OFTEN HAPPENS IS THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THEIR EXISTING UNITS HEAR ABOUT THIS THROUGH THE NEWSLETTERS, AND SO SOME OF THEM ACTUALLY END UP MOVING INTO THOSE NEW UNITS. SO THAT’S PART OF WHAT HAPPENS. AND THEN PEOPLE ALSO ARE ALREADY ON WAITING LISTS FOR DIFFERENT UNITS, AND THEY LET THE DEVELOPER/OWNER KNOW THAT THEY ARE INTERESTED IN A UNIT SORT OF ANYWHERE, IF THAT’S THE CASE. OFTEN, THOUGH, PEOPLE HAVE FAMILY THAT ARE NEARBY AND SO THEY WANT TO STAY IN A PARTICULAR AREA. AND SO THEY’RE WAITING UNTIL OTHER PEOPLE MOVE TO OTHER PLACES OR THAT BECOME AVAILABLE. SO WE DO — THERE’S ADVERTISING, NOTIFICATIONS THAT GO OUT TO VARIOUS INTEREST GROUPS. SO ARP AND DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS THAT KNOW ABOUT — THAT DEAL WITH THE DIFFERENT CLIENTELE. SO IF IT’S SENIORS OR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES OR FAMILIES. SO LIKE BOLDER HIGHWAY RECENTLY OPENED, AND THEY RENTED UP VERY QUICKLY, THEY LEASED UP VERY QUICKLY, AND PEOPLE HEARD ABOUT IT THROUGH A VARIETY OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE PROVIDERS THROUGHOUT TOWN.>>OKAY. MINE, I’M JUST HOPING AT SOME POINT WE CAN BE ABLE TO SAY OOUR CONSTITUENTS BECAUSE A LOT OF OUR FOLKS ARE TAKING THEIR PARTICIPANTS IN OR WHETHER THEY’RE VETERANS, WHETHER THEY’RE LOW-INCOME FAMILIES, I MEAN, IT’S HARD TO BE OUT THAT — AT LEAST MAYBE WE COULD SAY TRY HERE, TRY THERE, BECAUSE WE ARE SEPARATE AND ABOVE FROM THE HOUSING AUTHORITY.>>CORRECT.>>ON THIS.>>YES.>>THIS IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THE HOUSING AUTHORITY DOES, AND SO IT JUST WOULD BE KIND OF NICE TO AT LEAST HELP PEOPLE GET ON A WAITING LIST OR UNDERSTAND HOW THAT WORKS.>>ALTHOUGH I WILL SAY THAT SOME OF OUR PROJECTS ARE WITH THE HOUSING AUTHORITY AS THEY’RE CONVERTING — BUILDING NEW UNITS, LIKE ROSE GARDENS WAS RECENTLY CONSTRUCTED. SO WE DO HAVE PROJECTS WITH THEM. I WILL ALSO TELL YOU THAT WE ARE COMING BACK ON MAY 21 WITH A LARGER PRESENTATION ABOUT AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND HOW MUCH OF AN ISSUE IT IS, BECAUSE WE HAVE A CRISIS ON OUR HANDS.>>OKAY. THANK YOU. MR. SHILER?>>THANK YOU, CHAIR. I JUST WANTED TO ADD A COUPLE OF PIECES. ONE IS EARLIER ON YOUR CONSENT AGENDA, AS YOU ALL KNOW, WE HAD A COUPLE OF ITEMS, ONE TIDE TO YOUTH AND INCREASING SHELTER BEDS. SECOND WAS TIDE TO A PRIVATE-PUBLIC PARTNERSHIP ON INCREASING OUR CAPACITY OF HOUSING UNITS. AND TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION I THINK EVEN A LITTLE MORE DIRECTLY, THE ISSUE OF THIS ACTION PLAN IS REALLY TIED TO KIND OF THAT MID TO LONG-TERM SOLUTION, SO WE NEED TO BE BUILDING STATEMENT ON A PARALLEL ROAD. WE ARE ALSO LOOKING AT HOW WE LEASE AND INCREASE THAT CAPACITY TO KIND OF YOUR POINT OF THAT EMERGENCY NEED. I THINK YOU’RE GOING TO SEE THAT MOVING FORWARD AS IT TIES TO OUR OVERALL PLAN AND HOW THAT MERGES TOGETHER.>>OKAY. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? COMMISSIONER WEEKLY.>>HI, THERE. SO THIS IS WHAT WE CONSIDER THE FIVE-YEAR PLAN?>>NO, THIS IS THE ANNUAL ACTION PLAN FOR ’19/20. THE FIVE-YEAR PLAN IS COMING UP LATER.>>FOR THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A COMMISSION MEETING LATE AFTER THE FIVE-YEAR PLAN, SO I NEED TO START EARLY, SO THUMB TACK ME IN FOR — I SEE MR. POLLAK IN THE AUDIENCE THERE. SIT ON THE FRONT ROW. I’VE PUT YOUR RE-SERVED SIGN SEAT ON YOUR SEAT THERE, SO I HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, KRISTEN, FOR YOUR HARD WORK.>>THANK YOU. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? SEEING NONE, I’D ENTERTAIN A MOTION — >>ACTUALLY, WE HAVE TO — WE’RE GOOD.>>OKAY?>>YES, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>NO MOTION? NEXT WE HAVE ITEM NO. 76 WHICH IS PURSUANT TO NRS288.153, CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING AND APPROVE AND AUTHORIZE THE CHAIR TO SIGN THE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT FISCAL REOPENER BETWEEN CLARK COUNTY AND THE CLARK COUNTY DEFENDERS UNION EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2019 THROUGH JUNE 30, 2020; AND EXTEND THE SAME SALARY AND BENEFIT CHANGES TO NON-UNION EMPLOYEES NOT COVERED BY THE CCDU COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT.>>GOOD MORNING.>>GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS.

I RESPECTFULLY REQUEST YOUR APPROVAL OF THIS ITEM.>>THANK YOU. THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING. I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING. ANYBODY WISHING TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? SEEING NO ONE, I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND TURN IT OVER TO THE BOARD. COMMISSIONER?>>I NEED TO MAKE A DISCLOSURE. MY SON WORKS FOR THE PUBLIC DEFENDER, SO I THINK THAT THIS IS NOT ENOUGH MONEY, BUT IN THE INTERESTS OF DISCLOSURE, I WON’T VOTE.>>OKAY. ANYBODY ELSE? I’D ENTERTAIN A MOTION.>>IF THERE IS NOTHING MORE, I’D MOVE APPROVAL.>>OKAY, COMMISSIONER GIBSON HAS MOVED FOR APPROVAL ON ITEM NO. 76. PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE. MOTION PASSES. >>THANK YOU.>>ITEM NO. 77 IS TO CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING TO APPROVE, ADOPT AND AUTHORIZE THE SECOND 10-YEAR CARBON MONOXIDE LIMITED MAINTENANCE PLAN LAS VEGAS VALLEY MAINTENANCE AREA CLARK COUNTY NEVADA, AND AUTHORIZE THE DIRECTOR TO INCORPORATE ANY RELEVANT PUBLIC COMMENTS INTO THE PLAN AND SUBMIT THE PLAN TO THE STATE OF NEVADA AND THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY FOR REVIEW AND APPROVAL AS A REVISION TO THE NEVADA STATE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN. MADAM CHAIR, I DO BELIEVE WE HAVE A PRESENTATION FOR THIS ITEM.>>GOOD MORNING.>>GOOD MORNING, MADAM CHAIR, COMMISSIONERS. MIKE SWORD. I’M THE PLANNING MANAGER FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF AIR QUALITY, AND I HAVE A BRIEF PRESENTATION ON OUR 10-YEAR LIMITED MAINTENANCE PLAN SUBMITTAL. THANK YOU. SO JUST A BRIEF HISTORY ON CARBON MONOXIDE BACKGROUND. AS YOU MAY BE AWARE, WE LIVE IN A VALLEY AT A HIGH ALTITUDE. WE’RE SURROUNDED BY MOUNTAINS, SO IT’S ESSENTIALLY WE LIVE IN A BOWL, AND CO IS A WINTERTIME PROBLEM. IT’S A DECADES’ OLD PROBLEM. AND IN 1990, EPA DETERMINED THAT WE WERE MODERATE FOR NON-ATTAINMENT FOR IT. IN ’97 THEY DETERMINED — THEY BUMPED US UP TO SERIOUS NON-ATTAINMENT AND REQUIRED US TO DO A SIP, WHICH WE SUBMITTED IN 2000. THAT IS GOOD FOR 10 YEARS AND LASTED TO 2010. IN 2010 WE SUBMITTED THE FIRST MAINTENANCE PLAN, WHICH IS A DIFFERENT TYPE OF SIP. THAT BASICALLY DEFINES HOW WE’RE GOING TO BE IN ATTAINMENT OR STAY IN ATTAINMENT. THAT SIP EXPIRES IN 2020. THIS IS THE RE-PLACEMENT TO THAT 2020 PLAN THAT WILL LAST AN ADDITIONAL 10 YEARS AND IN THEORY WILL BE THE FINAL MAINTENANCE PLAN THAT WILL NEED TO BE SUBMITTED. THIS SLIDE IS ONE OF TWO GRAPHS THAT KIND OF VISUALLY DEMONSTRATE THE PROBLEM. THE TIME PERIOD ON IT GOES FROM 1981, I BELIEVE, TO 1998. IN THE EARLY — THIS IS THE FIRST ONE IS THE NUMBER OF DAYS OF EXCEEDENCE THAT OCCURRED EACH YEAR, SO IN THE EARLY ’80S YOU COULD SEE IT WAS NOT UNUSUAL TO HAVE 25 AND 40 DAYS OF EXCEEDENCE IN JUST THE WINTERTIME PERIOD. IN 1998, THAT WAS THE LAST YEAR WE HAD AN EXCEEDENCE FOR CARBON MONOXIDE. THIS NEXT GRAPH SHOWS THE TRENDS OF CONCENTRATION, THE CONCENTRATIONS ARE IDENTIFIED ON THE AXIS IN INCREMENTS OF 10. RIGHT BELOW 10 IS A SOLID LINE. THAT SOLID LINE IS A STANDARD OF 9PPM FOR CARBON MONOXIDE. WE DROPPED BELOW THAT LINE IN 1998, AND WE ARE KIND OF LEVELLING OUT AROUND 3PPM FOR CARBON MONOXIDE. THIS IS A CHART THAT KIND OF EXPLAINS THE SOURCES IN AIR QUALITY TERMS. IN AIR QUALITY TERMS WE THINK OF THINGS AS MOBILE SOURCES ON ROAD OR MOBILE SOURCES OFF-ROAD. STATIONARY SOURCES, WHICH WOULD BE LIKE A COMMERCIAL BOILER OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. SOME THINGS TO NOTE ON THIS SLIDE IS THAT THE STATIONARY SOURCES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR LESS THAT BE 1% OF THE CO PROBLEM. THE MAJORITY OF IT IS ONROAD MOBILE, THE CARS WE DRIVE. THE CONTROL MEASURES THAT HAVE WORKED AND ARE CONTAINED WITHIN THE MAINTENANCE PLAN INCLUDE THE FACT THAT EPA CONTINUES TO WORK ON EMISSIONS AT A NATIONAL LEVEL. THE STATE VEHICLE INSPECTION MAINTENANCE PROGRAM, MOST OF US THINK OF THAT AS A SMALL CHECK PROGRAM. THAT HAVE BEEN A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF NOT JUST CO, BUT OZONE, AND I JUST AS A SIDE NOTE, IN THE LEGISLATURE ALMOST EVERY SESSION IN THE LEGISLATURE THAT PROGRAM COMES UNDER SCRUTINY, AND WE FIND OURSELVES DEFENDING IT FAIRLY RIGOROUSLY SOMETIMES. OXIDATED FUELS HAVE HAD A KEY ROLE IN REDUCING CARBON MONOXIDE, AND THE STATE TECH NATION TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION WHERE THOSE ARE THE FOLKS TRAINED ON HOW TO REPAIR VEHICLES TO GET THEIR — TO KEEP THEIR EMISSIONS WITHIN THE STANDARD. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HELPED US IN THE ’90S WAS FLEET TURNOVER. IN THE MID-90S EPA CAME OUT WITH ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTICS THAT REDUCED THE AMOUNT OF EMISSIONS COMING FROM VEHICLES, AND LAS VEGAS HAS ALWAYS HAD A LOT OF NEW VEHICLES IN THEIR FLEETS, SO THAT TURNOVER HELPED US QUITE A BIT. AND THEN VOLUNTARY MEASURES, SUCH AS THE RTC, RIDE SHARE AND THE — THOSE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION PROGRAMS. THE NEXT STEPS FOR US ARE TO — IN THEORY, WE EXPECT TO REMAIN BELOW THE STANDARD, AND THE THING IS THAT WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO WORK WITH OR, YOU KNOW, AS CLEANER FUEL AND VEHICLE EMISSIONS, AS THOSE THINGS, NEW TECHNOLOGIES COME OUT AND THOSE THINGS EVOLVE, THOSE THINGS WILL HELP US. WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR CO IN THE VALLEY. WE CURRENTLY HAVE THREE MONITORS IN THE VALLEY. SMOKE CHECKS OF VEHICLES, WE WILL CONTINUE TO DEFEND THAT PROGRAM. AND WE WILL RE-EVALUATE CONTROL AND CONTINUE TO SEE MEASURES AS NECESSARY. WITH THAT, I WOULD BE PLEASED TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.>>THANK YOU. DOES THAT COMPLETE YOUR PRESENTATION?>>YES, MA’AM.>>PERFECT. THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING. I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING. ANYBODY WISHING TO SPEAK PLEASE COME FORWARD. SEEING NO ONE, I’M GOING TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING, AND DOES ANYBODY FROM THE BOARD HAVE ANYTHING? I HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER JONES, TAKE MY GLASSES OFF TO SEE CLOSE. SO ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? I JUST WANT TO SAY KUDOS TO OUR AIR QUALITY DEPARTMENT BECAUSE MAKING THOSE HUGE STRIDES AND BEING BELOW WHERE WE SHOULD BE IS ALWAYS A GOOD SPOT TO BE IN. SO I REMEMBER THE DAYS WHEN WE WERE ON THE OTHER SIDE, SO KUDOS TO YOU ALL. SO WITH THAT, NO OTHER THINGS, I WOULD — PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE.>>WE WERE TALKING TO EACH OTHER.>>ABOUT AIR QUALITY, I’M SURE. MOTION PASSES.>>NEXT WE HAVE ITEM NO. 78 WHICH IS TO CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING, ADOPT AND APPROVE AND AUTHORIZE THE CHAIR TO SIGN AN ORDINANCE TO AMEND CLARK COUNTY TITLES 6 AND 7 CONCERNING THE LICENSURE OF HOSPITALS, URGENT CARE CENTRES, CLINICS AND LABORATORIES, PROVIDING FOR LICENSURE OF HOSPITALS, URGENT MEDICAL CENTRES, CLINICS AND LABORATORIES; ESTABLISHING REQUIREMENTS FOR MEDICAL FACILITIES THAT OFFER OR ADVERTISE EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES; REQUIRING CERTAIN MEDICAL FACILITIES TO BE CERTIFIED BY CMS AND ACCEPT PAYMENTS FROM MEDICARE, MEDICAID; PROVIDING FOR BUSINESS LICENSE FEES; PROVIDING FOR SUSPENSION REV INVITATION OR NON-RENEWAL OF A BUSINESS LICENSE FOR NON-COMPLIANCE AND PENALTIES; AND PROVIDE FOR OTHER MATTERS PROPERLY RELATED THERETO.>>GOOD MORNING.>>GOOD MORNING, MADAM CHAIR, COMMISSIONERS.

THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING. I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING. ANYBODY WISHING TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? SEEING NO ONE, I AM GOING TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING. AND AT LEAST FOR THE BOARD — AT LEAST THERE’S ONE THING I’D LIKE TO ADD JUST TO ALL, INCLUDING THE GRANDFATHERED FOLKS, AND I DID REACH OUT TO THEM, AND THEY UNDERSTAND WHY I’M ASKING IT, BUT I WOULD JUST LIKE SOME ADDITIONAL SIGNAGE TO BE ON THE FRONT DOOR OF WHAT TYPE OF COVERAGE IS COVERED, JUST SO PATIENTS ARE AWARE COMING IN. I THINK THAT THAT IS REASONABLE, BUT OTHER THAN THAT, I THINK GOING FORWARD WE WILL BE IN A GOOD SPOT. COMMISSIONER GIBSON?>>IS THAT LANGUAGE NOW IN THE DRAFT THAT IS IN FRONT OF US? I READ THIS EARLIER, BUT I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THAT.>>IT IS NOT. THAT’S WHY I’M ASKING. I DON’T BELIEVE, MARE ANN, THAT IT’S A HUGE CHANGE THAT WE COULD ADD THAT IN?>>IS THE SIGNAGE A BURDEN ON BUSINESSES?>>I DON’T BELIEVE SO.>>– TO ANY PATIENT COMING IN THE DOOR THAT THERE IS NO MEDICAID, MEDICARE OR ANY OTHER INSURANCE ACCEPTED. >>ANY ONLY CONCERN IS THAT WASN’T PART OF THE BUSINESS IMPACT STATEMENT.>>OKAY.>>THAT CAN BE MAYBE ADVISORY AT THIS POINT, AND IF — >>SO I’M JUST GOING TO POINT IT OUT TO THE GRANDFATHERED FOLKS, THAT I’LL EXPECT THAT YOU’LL HAVE SOME TYPE OF SIGNAGE AS YOU AGREED TO IN YOUR FACILITY. PERFECT.>>BUT THIS ORDINANCE — EXCUSE ME. THIS ORDINANCE DOESN’T ADDRESS THE GRANDFATHERED PLACES, RIGHT? SO WEED HAVE TO HAVE A SEPARATE — IF WE WANTED TO PUT IT INTO LEGALITY.>>IT DOESN’T INCLUDE THEM AT THIS POINT, NO.>>IT DOES OR DOESN’T?>>IT DOES NOT INCLUDE THEM BECAUSE THEY, ALREADY UP AND GOING. THIS IS GOING FORWARD, BUT I HAD SPOKE WITH THE GRANDFATHERED COMPANIES AND ASKED THEM TO AT LEAST PUT SOME SIGNAGE IN, AND THEY AGREED THAT THAT WOULD BE A REASONABLE REQUEST. COMMISSIONER GIBSON?>>I DON’T THINK THAT’S ONEROUS, AND I WOULD SAY THAT WE OUGHT TO DETERMINE WHETHER THEY DO THAT BECAUSE MAYBE WE NEED TO COME BACK. I THINK THAT’S A FAIR NOTICE TO A PATIENT. AND HAVING SAID THAT, I MOVE THE ADOPTION OF THE ORDINANCE.>>OKAY. COMMISSIONER GIBSON HAS MOVED THE ADOPTION OF THE ORDINANCE, NO. 78. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? SEEING NONE, PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE.

SHE DID A FANTASTIC JOB OF INVITING OPEN AIR ARTISTS TO COME AND PAINT ON THE TRAIL, AND IT WAS JUST A WONDERFUL EVENT. IN FACT, ONE OF THE ARTISTS, I LOVED THIS PAINTING SO MUCH I BOUGHT IT. AND IF YOU’RE UP IN THE COMMISSION OFFICES, IT’S NOW POSTED NEXT TO THE DOOR IF YOU WANT TO CHECK THAT OUT. BUT I THINK WE HAVE SOME VIDEO FROM THAT EVENT.>>WE MADE IT!>>YEARS AGO I . . .>>THE TRAIL IS 2.2 MILES. IF YOU JOIN US ON GOOD SPRINGS, YOU CAN ALWAYS HAVE LUNCH AT THE PIONEER SALOON, WHICH IS A FUN PLACE. I RECOMMEND IF YOU GO ON THE TRAIL THAT YOU GO TO THE LEFT FIRST BECAUSE IF YOU GO TO THE RIGHT, AS I DID, THE INCLINE IS MUCH STEEPER. SO JUST AS A WARNING ON THAT ONE. BUT IT WAS A GREAT EVENT, GREAT FOLKS OUT THERE. AND I GOT TO HIKE THE TRAIL ACTUALLY WITH MICKEY SPROTT, OUR HEAD OF PUBLIC ART, SO IT WAS A FUN TIME. WE HAVE THE RURAL PARTS OF DISTRICT F ARE GETTING SOME SERIOUS LOVE THANKS TO MY PREDECESSOR AND ALL THE FOLKS HERE, SO THIS COMING SATURDAY AT THE — AT SANDY VALLEY PEACE PARK WE ARE DOING A GRAND REOPENING OF THAT PARK. THAT WILL START AT 9:00. AS YOU HEARD A LITTLE BIT BEFORE, THERE’S A NEW HALF MILE PAVED AREA AT THE PARK AND SOME ADDITIONAL AMENITIES, A WATER FEATURE AND SOME OTHER THINGS. SO DEFINITELY INVITE YOU TO COME ON OUT AND CHECK OUT SANDY VALLEY THIS WEEKEND. 9:00 WE’LL START, AND THEN THERE WILL BE A BARBECUE AFTERWARDS AT 11:30. AND THEN FINALLY, I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TOUR WITH KEVIN SHILER AND MIKE POLLAK THIS PAST WEEK. THE CITY’S FACILITY FOR INVITING THE HOMELESS IN THE COURTYARD. I WOULD INVITE MY COLLEAGUES ON THE COMMISSION TO GO CHECK OUT THEIR CURRENT FACILITIES, BUT ALSO TO LEARN ABOUT THE THINGS THAT THEY ARE PLANNING FOR THAT SITE. WE HAD A GOOD DISCUSSION. I THINK IT WAS — WE HAD SOME EXCHANGE OF IDEAS ABOUT HOW WE CAN CONTINUE TO WORK MORE COLLABORATIVELY WITH THE CITY BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THAT HOMELESSNESS KNOWS NO JURISDICTIONAL BOUNDARIES, AND SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THOSE OPPORTUNITIES.>>THANK YOU. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANYTHING ON THIS END? COMMISSIONER SEGERBLOOM.>>I’M NOT SURE IF THEY HAVE ANY VIDEO OF THIS, BUT I WAS FORTUNATE TO GIVE THE KEY TO THE COUNTY, LIKE YOU DID TO THE GUY FROM THE TV SHOW, GAVE THIS TO CHEF ANDRES WHO IS, AS YOU KNOW, HAS SEVERAL RESTAURANTS ON THE STRIP, BUT HE IS ALSO WORLD FAMOUS FOR PROVIDING FOOD IN PLACES LIKE PUERTO RICO, IN PLACES WHERE THEY — REALLY FANTASTIC INTERNATIONAL AMBASSADOR, BUT HE’S AN IMMIGRANT, UNITED STATES CITIZEN NOW, BUT JUST WANT TO REMIND PEOPLE THAT WE HAVE GREAT PEOPLE LIKE THIS IN — AS PART OF OUR LAS VEGAS COMMUNITY, AND SO, SO EXCITING TO HONOUR THEM FOR WHAT THEY DO NATIONALLY. AND I’M NOT SURE IF ANYONE ELSE IS GOING TO MENTION THIS, BUT SINCE I’M THE FIRST ONE, I WANTED TO POINT OUT THAT THIS IS TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK, AND WE ALL OBVIOUSLY LOVE TEACHERS, SO MY MOTHER WAS A TEACHER AND I JUST THINK THERE’S NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAT WE CAN DO.>>THANK YOU. COMMISSIONER GIBSON?>>THANK YOU. TODAY I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO ROBERT BAILEY ELEMENTARY. WE BROUGHT BAGELS TO THE TEACHERS AND EXPRESSED OUR APPRECIATION FOR ALL THEY DO, AND WE CAN’T DO ENOUGH TO WORK TO REALLY UNDERSTAND THE CHALLENGES IN THE CLASSROOM TODAY, SO IT IS NOT AN EASY THING TO BE THERE, AND THEY WERE THERE VERY EARLY. THIS PAST WEEK THE BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS WERE TELECAST FROM LAS VEGAS FOR THE 20TH STRAIGHT YEAR, AND COMMISS JOINED ME IN PRESENTING A PROCLAMATION TO EACH OF THE FOUR — YOU SEE BEHIND US IN THIS VIDEO THREE OF THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS OF THE SHOW. THE FELLOW BETWEEN US IS BRENDON YURI OF PANIC AT THE DISCO WHO HAS REALLY MADE A DIFFERENCE IN LAS VEGAS. BY THE WAY, ATTRIBUTED HIS SUCCESS TO HIS TEACHER IN HIGH SCHOOL, MR. MATA, AND THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT LOST ON ANY OF US AFTER WE LEARNED ABOUT IT AND TALKED ABOUT IT. YOU CAN SEE THAT HE’S HOLDING A KEY TO THE LAS VEGAS STRIP, AND A SPECIAL RECOGNITION, BRENDON WORKED WITH THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS AND DETERMINED THAT IT WOULD BE A WORTHWHILE THING TO ALLOW KIDS WITH TALENT TO DISCOVER A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE INDUSTRY. AND SO HE HAS BUILT A RECORDING STUDIO, WHICH IS AVAILABLE TO pG SOON. HE’S JUST DONE A LOT IN THE COMMUNITY, AND WE’RE PROUD THAT HE IS A NATIVE SON, THAT HE CAME OUT OF OUR DISTRICT, THAT HE HAS FRIENDSHIPS ACROSS THE VALLEY, AND IT WAS FUN TO BE ABLE TO BOTH HONOUR THE AWARD. WE SAW HIM PERFORM THEN WHEN THE AWARDS WERE TELECAST, AND HE HAD A WHOLE LOT OF ENERGY. YOU WOULDN’T HAVE KNOWN THAT HE — JUST TALKING TO HIM AND STANDING THERE WITH HIM, THAT HE WOULD SHOW THAT MUCH ENERGY, BUT I UNDERSTAND NOW FROM OTHERS IN MY FAMILY WHO ARE A LITTLE YOUNGER THAN I, THAT THAT IS ALWAYS THE WAY HE APPEARS AND PERFORMS. AND THEN FINALLY WE DISCUSSED SOME MONTHS AGO WHERE WE’VE HAD SOME INFORMAL DISCUSSIONS SOME MONTHS AGO ABOUT LOBBYIST REGISTRATION AND REPORTING, AND I THOUGHT ABOUT THIS A LOT, AND IT OCCURS TO ME THAT THERE MAY BE A WAY TO JUST FINE TUNE WHAT WE HAVE, AND I THINK THAT IT IS WORKABLE. WE OF COURSE NEED TO SERVE UP NOTES TO LOBBYISTS THAT THEY HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO REPORT ON THEIR ACTIVITIES. WHAT I WOULD ASK, I SUGGESTED THIS, BUT I ASKED THE STAFF TO BRING SOMETHING BACK TO US, BUT WHAT I WOULD PROPOSE IS THAT THAT POLICY BE AMENDED TO REQUIRE THAT ONE ADDITIONAL TRANSMITTAL OR SUBMITTAL BE INCLUDED IN WHAT WE DO. THAT IS THAT THE COMMISSIONERS RECEIVE A COPY OF WHAT IS FILED WITH THE CLERK’S OFFICE. WHAT THAT WOULD DO IS THAT WOULD ALLOW EACH OF OUR EXECUTIVE ASSISTANTS TO TRACK BACK AND MAKE SURE THAT THE CONTACTS THAT WE HAVE EACH HAD WITH THE LOBBYISTS HAS BEEN REFLECTED. I THINK THAT’S SIMPLE ENOUGH. IT DOESN’T CHANGE EVERYTHING THAT WE’RE DOING. I DON’T THINK IT COSTS — WE DON’T HAVE TO HIRE ANYBODY ELSE. THE TRANSMITTAL COMES TO US IN WHAT I’M THINKING DIRECTLY FROM THE LOBBYIST. SO THAT — MAYBE THERE ARE OTHERS WHO HAVE DIFFERENT VIEWS, BUT I WOULD — THAT WOULD BE MY VIEW, AND I’D ASK AND DIRECT THAT YOU WORK ON THIS AND BRING SOMETHING BACK TO US. AND THAT’S ALL I HAVE, THANK YOU.>>COMMISSIONER WEEKLY.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH, MADAM CHAIR. JUST A COUPLE THINGS GOING ON. FIRST OF ALL, MADAM CHAIR, JUST LET ME SEE IN EMERGING ISSUES, I WANT TO THANK YOU AND THANK SEVERAL OF YOU WHO HAVE JUST REACHED OUT TO ME OVER THE LAST FIVE MONTHS. YOU GUYS KNOW I’VE HAD A LOT OF HARDSHIPS GOING ON IN MY FAMILY. WE’VE HAD TWO MAJOR LOSSES, TWO OF MY LITTLE BROTHERS PASSED AWAY, ONE ABOUT FIVE MONTHS AGO AND VIRGIL THREE WEEKS AGO, WHICH HAS BEEN VERY HEARTBREAKING FOR MY FAMILY. AND OF COURSE YOU KNOW, WITH MY COLLEAGUE, OUR COLLEAGUE ASSEMBLYMAN THOMPSON. SO IT’S BEEN REALLY CHALLENGING, BUT WITH THE JOBS THAT WE’VE BEEN BLESSED TO HAVE HERE ON THIS COMMISSION, THE WORK CONTINUES. AND SO YOU KNOW, I’VE JUST — THANK GOD I’VE BEEN ABLE TO JUST KIND OF MOVE THINGS FORWARD. I WANT TO THANK ALL MY TEACHERS, AS COMMISSIONER SEGERBLOOM POINTED OUT. THIS IS TEACHERS APPRECIATION WEEK, AND WILL COVINGTON IN MY OFFICE, HE’S MADE A MENTORSHIP PROGRAM POSSIBLE, AND I WANT TO SEND A SHOUT-OUT TO THE TEACHERS OVER THERE, TO ALL THE TEACHERS IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WHO ARE WORKING HARD TO HELP EDUCATE OUR KIDS AND TRY TO HELP THEM GET OVER THE HUMP OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS AS WE WRAP UP AND PREPARE FOR THE CLASS OF 2019. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THOSE GRADUATES, BUT TO ALL THE TEACHERS WHO ARE WORKING REALLY HARD, AND TO ALL MY TEACHERS, WE LOVE YOU AND APPRECIATE WHAT YOU ARE DOING FOR THOSE KIDS. THIS PAST WEEK, WE WANT TO THANK DARREN EMORY, OUR GUY FROM THE PUBLIC DEFENDER’S OFFICE. WE ARE GRATEFUL THAT WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO PARTNER WITH THEM OVER AT THE REGIONAL JUSTICE CENTRE. KEVIN SHILER, OUR ASSISTANT COUNTY MANAGER, CAME OUT TO SUPPORT OUR EVENT. WE HOSTED A SQUASH WARRANT DAY, AND THIS WAS A WONDERFUL EVENT. THAT DAY WE WERE ABLE TO HELP OVER 1500 CITIZENS GET WARRANTS SQUASHED, TO GET THEMSELVES BACK ON CALENDAR TO BE ABLE TO NOT HAVE TO HIDE IN THE SHADOWS, TO COME BEFORE A JUDGE, GET BACK ON THE CALENDAR. A LOT OF THESE WARRANTS GOT SQUASHED, AND IT WAS SUCH A BLESSING. THE DA’S OFFICE, ASSISTANT DISTRICT ATTORNEY JOLLY AND THEIR TEAM WERE THERE TO HELP ALL THE JUDGES WHO WERE THERE. THEY — THE LINE, MADAM MANAGER, STARTED AT 6 A.M. WE DIDN’T OPEN THE DOORS UNTIL 9 A.M. AND EVERYBODY STAYED UNTIL 3 P.M. I MEAN, ACTUALLY, WE JUST SAT AROUND, JUST WAITING FOR PEOPLE TO COME BECAUSE THEY WERE SO EFFICIENT AND SO EFFECTIVE AND BLESSING SO MANY PEOPLE WHO — AND YOU SAW IT, KEVIN. SO MANY TEARS. WE HAD A LADY WHO HAD WARRANTS FOR OVER — SHE HAD ABOUT $15,000 IN WARRANTS, AND YOU TALK ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO PAY THEIR LIGHT BILL, PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO DECIDE: DO I PAY MY RENT OR DO I PAY THIS TICKET? DO I JUST HIDE OUT UNTIL I CAN MAKE ENDS MEET? WHAT A BLESSING ON SATURDAY. WE WERE JUST EXTREMELY OVERWHELMED, AND SO I’M THANKFUL TO THE PUBLIC DEFENDER’S OFFICE, TO THEIR ENTIRE TEAM. JUST A LOT OF WORK. COMMISSIONER SISILACK’S SON WAS AMAZING. YOUR SON, SEGERBLOOM, YEAH, THE “S”S, YOU GUYS’ KIDS WERE AMAZING. THEY HELPED SO MANY PEOPLE. THEY SHOWED UP EARLY. THEY STAYED LATE, AND THEY REALLY PUT IN THE WORK. WE’RE THANKFUL FOR THAT. THIS SATURDAY WE HAVE A CLEANUP IN MY DISTRICT, DISTRICT D. CLEAN UP AND CLEAN OUT. WE’RE VERY GRATEFUL TO OPPORTUNITY VILLAGE WHO WILL BE THERE. THEY’RE GOING TO BRING OUT THE SHREDDERS. ANYBODY WITH DOCUMENTS AND A BUNCH OF OLD PAPERS AND STUFF YOU WANT TO GET RID OF, YOU CAN STAND THERE AND WATCH ALL YOUR DOCUMENTS GET SHREDDED. IF YOU HAVE NEW OR GENTLY USED CLOTHING OR SHOES YOU WANT TO GIVE AWAY, WE HAVE SEVERAL OF OUR HOMELESS FACILITIES THAT ARE GOING TO BE THERE, AS WELL AS OUR SERVICE PROVIDERS WHO ARE GOING TO DONATE THESE CLOTHES AND SHOES TO FAMILIES, AND THEN OF COURSE WE HAVE ONE MORE, KELLY, WILL, I’M FORGETTING THE OTHER ONE. THEY’LL GET ME FOR THAT ONE. AND EAST LAS VEGAS LIBRARY, WE HAD A RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY. WE JOINED IN WITH COUNSELLORMAN COFFIN TO CUT A RIBBON ON THE NEW EAST LAS VEGAS LIBRARY. COME ON DOWN, CHECK IT OUT. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL LIBRARY. METRO IS GOING TO BE THERE. ANY OF YOU GUYS GOT OLD PRECIPITATION DRUGS IN YOUR MEDICINE CABINET? DON’T FLUSH IT. DON’T FLUSH THEM DOWN THE DRAIN. BRING THEM TO US. LET METRO DIPOSE OF THEM PROPERLY. SO THAT’S GOING TO BE ON SITE. SO THAT KICKS OFF AT 9 A.M. AT THE WALNUT RECREATION CENTRE. WE DID THE RIBBON CUTTING AT THE LIBRARY. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL LIBRARY. WHAT ELSE HERE? OH, MASON JUST LEFT FROM UMC. THIS AFTERNOON, THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT, GUYS. WE HAVE THE HEALTHY NEVADA PROJECT AT UMC TODAY. AND THIS IS GOING TO BE SO COOL BECAUSE YOU GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO COME AND I DON’T KNOW HOW TO SAY IT CORRECTLY HERE, JEFF WELLS, BUT THIS IS GOING TO BE SO COOL, BUT IT’S GOING TO GIVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO FIND OUT SOME OF THE GENETICS AS IT RELATES TO ANYTHING THAT’S GONE ON IN YOUR FAMILY TREE. YOU’LL GET A CHANCE TO SEE, ARE YOU CARRYING ANY SPECIFIC TRAITS? AND THE BEAUTIFUL THING ABOUT IT IS NOT ONLY ARE WE GOING TO KICK IT OFF TODAY AT UMC, BUT WE’VE GOTTEN PERMISSION FROM THE COUNTY MANAGER’S OFFICE THAT THEY’RE GOING TO COME AND OFFER THE SERVICE TO COUNTY EMPLOYEES AS WELL. SO WE’RE HAPPY ABOUT THAT. THANK YOU TO OUR CHAIRWOMAN. SHE AND I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH NEVADA COOPERATIVE EXTENSION FOR THE PAST, WHAT, TWO YEARS NOW, COMMISSIONER? MADAM CHAIR? SO WE’RE CUTTING THE RIBBON. I’M OPENING UP A CENTRE IN WEST LAS VEGAS OVER AT THE OLD HISTORIC AD GUY COMMUNITY CENTRE, WHICH IS ON THE CAMPUS OF THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB, AND THIS IS CALLED THE KNOWLEDGE CENTRE. AND THE KNOWLEDGE CENTRE IS GOING TO BE AMAZING. IT’S A CENTRE WHERE WE’RE EQUIPPING IT WITH ALL TECHNOLOGY, COMPUTERS, TUTORIAL PROGRAMS FOR KIDS. WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A CODING PROGRAM FOR PARENTS. WE’RE GOING TO ALLOW PARENTS TO BE ABLE TO COME IN AND ACQUIRE THEIR GEDS. WE GOT A LOT OF GREAT PROGRAMS THAT ARE GOING TO TAKE PLAYS THERE. THANK YOU TO NEVADA COOPERATIVE EXTENSION. THE PARTNERSHIP WE’RE HAVING THERE, THAT’S GOING TO BE GREAT. TEAMING UP THE DFS. WE HAVE NEXT WEEK, WE’RE SHOWING THE MOVIE “FOSTER” AND THIS IS GOING TO BE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OUR NATIONAL — OUR NATIONAL — WHAT ARE WE HAVING? KATIE, WHAT ARE WE HAVING IN JUNE? WE’RE HAVING A NATIONAL NACO CONFERENCE. Y’ALL, I JUST HAD MY BIRTHDAY, SO I CAN TELL IT’S KICKING IN, GUYS. YOU GUYS GOT TO WORK WITH ME. IN CONJUNCTION WITH NATIONAL NACO, WE’RE DOING A BIG MOVIE NEXT WEEK. THANK YOU TO DFS AND THANK YOU TO HBO. WE’RE DOING A PRIVATE SCREENING OF THE MOVIE “FOSTER” AND WE’RE LOOKING IN — WE’RE DIVING INTO THE REALM OF FOSTER CARE, AND THIS IS GOING TO BE FANTASTIC, AND WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT THAT. AND ON THAT EVENING I’LL BE THE KEY NOTE SPEAKER FOR NEVADA STATE COLLEGE GRADUATION CEREMONY. SO YEAH, GOT A LOT GOING ON IN DISTRICT D. REAL BUSY. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER WEEKLY, AND I’LL FINISH IT UP. SO A FEW THINGS, ONE, JUST SO EVERYBODY IS AWARE, WE ARE FOLLOWING THE GOVERN’S LEAD ON FLYING THE FLAGS AT HALF STAFF FOR ASSEMBLYMAN TYRONE THOMPSON. THAT WILL TAKE EFFECT UNTIL SUNDAY AFTERNOON. ALSO, THERE’S 12 DAYS OF SCHOOL LEFT SO THE KIDS ARE ALREADY WORKING PRETTY HARD USING EVERY OUNCE OF PARKS AND REC THAT WE HAVE, BUT THERE’S CAMPS AND ALL KINDS OF THINGS AVAILABLE. WE’RE GOING TO BE DOING A SERIES WITH CHANNEL 13 TALKING ABOUT ALL THE THINGS THAT CLARK COUNTY OFFERS TO FAMILIES OUT THERE. AND IN DISTRICT B, COMMISSIONER WEEKLY, YOU’LL REMEMBER, THIS IS GREAT AMERICAN TIME FOR US, SO WE’LL HAVE OVER 150 KIDS THAT WILL HAVE COMPLETED THE GREAT AMERICAN, AND IF YOU’RE NOT AWARE OF WHAT IT IS, IT’S THEY HAVE TO READ, WRITE AND RECITE THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, THE PREAMBLE, THE GETTY’SBURG ADDRESS, THE STATES AND CAPITALS, THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER, AND THE PRESIDENTS. SO IT IS SOMETHING WE’VE BEEN DOING FOR A LONG TIME, BUT WE ARE ALMOST UP TO 10,000 STUDENTS OVER THE LAST 20 YEARS THAT WE’VE BEEN DOING IT. SO WE’RE PRETTY EXCITED, SO WE DO A LOT OF COOKING BECAUSE WE REWARD THEM WITH A BANQUET BECAUSE MOST OF US CAN’T DO THAT. AND WE MAKE A BIG CELEBRATION OUT OF IT. SO WE JUST HAD OUR CINCO DE MAYO PARTY THIS LAST WEEKEND. WE HAD OVER 2500 PEOPLE THAT I KNOW THAT I SERVED TACOS TO. BUT I REALLY WANT TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO THE SPRING MOUNTAIN YOUTH CAMP. WE HAD 10 YOUNG MEN COME OUT AND HELP US SERVE, AND THE STORY WAS I TOLD THEM THEY HAD TO WORK AS HARD AS I DID, SO THEY NOW KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. BUT THEY DID OFFER TO COME BACK. BUT OUR PARKS AND REC STAFF AND JUVENILE JUSTICE AS A WHOLE WERE GREAT. AS WELL AS ALL OF THE PARTNERS THAT WE HAD FROM THE COMMUNITY. AT THE END OF THE DAY, THAT HELPED. SO A COUPLE OF BOARD THINGS THAT WE HAVE GOING ON, ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AT SOUTHERN NEVADA HEALTH DISTRICT, COMMISSIONER SEGERBLOOM AND I SIT ON. THEY ARE LOOKING TO RAISE FEES, SO THERE’S NOT BEEN A LOT OF PUBLIC PARTICIPATION. IT’S A 19% INCREASE, SO I ENCOURAGE FOLKS TO GET INVOLVED, YOUR SMALLER RESTAURANTS, YOUR LARGER MENUS THAT YOU HAVE. AND THEN LASTLY, TWO OTHER THINGS. ONE, I AM SPEAKING WITH ALL OF — WITH OTHER ELECTED FOR OPPORTUNITIES — THERE’S AN OPPORTUNITY ZONE CONFERENCE IN TOWN THIS WEEK, SO WASHEL COUNTY, CARSON CITY, HENDERSON, NORTH LAS VEGAS AND MYSELF WILL BE SPEAKING ON A PANEL, AND HOPEFULLY AFTER WE HAVE THE CONVERSATION TODAY, IT WILL BE A WAY FOR US TO DO SOME GOOD THINGS. AND THEN LASTLY I NEED TO — SO THERE ARE — I’M THINKING OF HOW TO SAY THIS NICELY. SO THE FIREWORKS FOLKS ARE LOBBYING ELECTEDS ACROSS THE VALLEY, AND THEY HAVE A BILL IN THE LEGISLATURE THAT THEY HAVE NOW ATTACHED TO, THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE AERIALS THAT GO UP IN THE AIR, THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO SELL. THEY ARE CALLED CAKES. SO TO MY — AND I WAS NOT NICE WHEN I SAID YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. WE GET 25,000 CALLS EACH YEAR, COMMISSIONER WEEKLY AND I SOMETIMES GO BACK AND FORTH TEXTING BECAUSE THE DOGS ARE BARKING, WE’RE FILLED AT THE FOUNDATIONS. SO THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING PRETTY HARD TO GET ALL THESE EXTRA THINGS. THEY WANT TO BE ABLE TO SELL THEM. WE HAD ADOPTED LAST YEAR THAT WE WOULD ONLY SELL FIREWORKS FROM JULY 1 TO JULY 4. HOWEVER — AND WE DO THIS ON A REGIONAL BASIS. EVERYBODY’S SUPPOSED TO WORK TOGETHER. HOWEVER, A COUPLE CITIES DEFECTED FROM THAT, WHICH IS SOMEWHAT FRUSTRATING, BUT CHIEF CASTLE SAID WE SHOULD PROBABLY CHANGE OUR ORDINANCE TO ALLOW — GO BACK TO THE 28 THROUGH THE 4TH, BUT HOPEFULLY WE CAN ALL STAY TOGETHER REGIONALLY TO ENSURE THAT WE DON’T ADD ANY MORE FIREWORKS TO THE TABLE, BECAUSE IT’S ALREADY PRETTY HARD FOR US TO KEEP OUR PUBLIC SAFETY. COMMISSIONER WEEKLY, DID YOU WANT TO ADD TO THAT?>>NO, I APPRECIATE YOU BRINGING THAT UP, AND I HOPE THAT THE OTHER COMMISSIONERS WHO HAVE JOINED THE BOARD CAN GET SOME INFORMATION ON THE ORDINANCE THAT WE DID INTRODUCE AND THE INITIATIVE THAT’S BEEN PUSHED OVER THE YEARS TO REALLY TRY TO HELP ERADICATE A LOT OF THE PROBLEMS THAT WE DO HAVE. WE UNDERSTAND THAT WE’RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO — AND THAT’S NOT OUR GOAL, IS TO CUT OUT FIREWORKS CELEBRATIONS. WE’RE JUST CONCERNED ABOUT, ESPECIALLY IN OUR OLDER NEIGHBORS, WE HAVE A LOT OF TRAGEDY THAT HAPPENS EACH AND EVERY YEAR, SO IT’S OUR HOPE THAT WE CAN GET EVERYBODY ON BOARD. AND I AGREE WITH YOU, MADAM CHAIR, THAT THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A REGIONAL THING. SO IT LOOKS LIKE THE CONVERSATIONS WILL GET A LITTLE BIT MORE INTENSE AS WE MOVE FORWARD.>>I DIDN’T GO TO THE LAST MEETING BECAUSE I KNEW I COULDN’T BE NICE, SO I JUST STAYED AWAY. SO WE WILL BE MAILING OUT 10,000 LETTERS TO THE HOTSPOTS OF THE NEIGHBOURHOODS THAT WERE THE WORST LAST YEAR, AND WE HAVE ALSO ARE MAILING OUT LETTERS TO THE HOAS BECAUSE THEY CAN FINE FOLKS FOR LETTING THEM OFF. ROADS RANCH IS A GREAT EXAMPLE. LAST YEAR THEY DID NOT ALLOW ANY FIREWORKS WITHIN THEIR DEVELOPMENT, AND IT WAS A HUGE HELP. HOWEVER, THE SOUTHWEST WAS THE BIGGER ISSUE, AS A WHOLE, AND I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT WAS THE NORTHWEST, BUT THE EASTSIDE WAS ACTUALLY IN THE BEST SHAPE BECAUSE COMMISSIONER WEEKLY AND I GET ON THEM EARLY. BUT JUST START REMINDING PEOPLE THAT FIREWORK SALES ARE THE SAFE AND SANE ONES, AND WE’LL HAVE TO BRING BACK A TEXT MAESMT AT THE NEXT MEETING TO I JOUST.>>BEFORE YOU GO ON, I APOLOGIZE FOR THIS. I WANTED TO RECOGNIZE THE URBAN COMBRS WHO IS HERE IN THE AUDIENCE WITH US, AND THEY REMIND ME THAT THIS IS NATIONAL SMALL BUSINESS WEEK, AND THERE IS A HOST OF ACTIVITIES THAT’S GOING TO BE HELD, AND I APPRECIATE KEN EVANS WHO IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE URBAN CHAMBER AND THE BOARD CHAIR WHO IS ALSO HERE, WE’RE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS. THERE’S CAPITAL CONNECTIONS TO PREPARE SMALL MINORITY BUSINESSES TO DO BUSINESS WITH PUBLIC AGENCIES. THERE’S A BIG PUSH ON THAT, ALONG WITH LARGE COMPANIES. THEY ARE ALSO SPONSORING CAREERS IN MOTION NEXT WEEK FOR NATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE WEEK AT THE TEXAS STATION. AND FINALLY, THEY HAVE A BIG, BIG, BIG LUNCHEON THAT’S ALWAYS A GREAT TURNOUT ON MAY 31. IT VIEWS — IT VIEWS OF THE VALLEY, AND IT GIVES A FORECAST OF BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES IN SOUTHERN NEVADA FOR SMALL AND MINORITY-OWNED COMPANIES. AND SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH, AND AS A MATTER OF FACT, THEY HAVE HONOURED AND RECOGNIZED FUNNEL CAKE CAFÉ, CHOFS MICROENTERPRISE BUSINESS OF THE YEAR FOR THE ENTIRE STATE OF NEVADA. AND YEAH, STAY TUNED, BECAUSE WE MAY BE HAVING SOME FUNNEL CAKES COME IN, AND Y’ALL KNOW WE LIKE THE TREATS, RIGHT? THANK YOU FOR YOUR HARD WORK. WE APPRECIATE YOU GUYS. THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR.>>THANK YOU. AND THAT CONCLUDES OUR EMERGING ISSUES. I’LL TURN IT BACK OVER TO MS. KING.>>ITEM 82 IS TO APPOINT ONE QUALIFIED INDIVIDUAL, OCTAVIO POSADA, TO SERVE A ONE-YEAR TERM FROM MAY 7, 2019 TO MAY 6, 2020 ON THE CLARK COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICE CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMITTEE.>>OKAY. I HAVE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER WEEKLY TO APPROVE OCTAVIO POSADA. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? SEEING NONE, PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE. MOTION PASSES.>>ITEM 83 WILL BE HEARD AFTER ITEM 87. WE CAN NOW MOVE TO ITEM 84, WHICH TO RECEIVE A REPORT ON OPPORTUNITY ZONES AND DISCUSS ACCORDINGLY.>>GOOD MORNING, MR. ARMSTRONG, AND THANKS FOR COMING THROUGH. I THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT WITH THE CONFERENCE COMING UP THAT WE HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT THE CUSHION IS GOING TO BE THIS WEEK.>>THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR, AND I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE THE COMMISSION’S OPPORTUNITY TO COME SPEAK TO YOU ABOUT THIS PROGRAM. BUT FIRST I WANTED TO GIVE A COUPLE OF HIGHLIGHTS THAT AREN’T IN THE PRESENTATION. ONE, WANTED TO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR HIGHLIGHTING ASSEMBLYMAN TOMPSON’S SERVICE TO THE STATE AND HIS TRAGIC SUDDEN LOSS FOR ALL OF US HE WAS A COLLEAGUE AND A FRIEND. HE WAS ONE OF THE FOLKS I REACHED OUT TO WHEN DEVELOPING THESE RECOMMENDATIONS, SO VERY MUCHLY APPRECIATE HIM AS A COLLEAGUE AND AS A FRIEND, AND IT’S A TRAGIC LOSS FOR THE STATE. ALSO WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP AND IN PUTTING TOGETHER SOME OF THE EVENTS MOVING FORWARD FOR THIS AS WELL. I AM ALSO SPEAKING ON A PANEL AT OPPORTUNITIES ZONES EXPO, SO WE’RE HIGHLIGHTING THIS FOR THE STATE. AND IN ADDITION, HIGHLIGHTS THAT THE WHITE HOUSE IS TAKING THIS VERY SERIOUSLY. THIS PROGRAM, AS WE TALK ABOUT IT, THEY ARE ACTUALLY OUT HERE TOMORROW VISITING THE CITY OF LAS VEGAS AND TAKING A TOUR OF SOME OF THE OPPORTUNITY ZONES IN SOUTHERN NEVADA. AND THEY WANT TO KNOW HOW ELSE THAT THEY CAN BE HELPFUL IN IMPLEMENTING THIS PROGRAM. AND SINCE IT IS SMALL BUSINESS WEEK, JUST WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT THAT. OUR OFFICE IS WORKING TREMENDOUSLY HARD IN SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESSES. WANT TO HIGHLIGHT COMMISSIONER WEEKLY AND HIS WORK IN THAT. I KNOW I ATTENDED AN EVENT WITH AN MGM SUPPLIER DIVERSITY PROGRAM WHICH HELPS SMALL BUSINESSES AND I KNOW HE’S SUPER SUPPORTIVE OF THAT. A LOT OF EFFORT THERE HELPING TO IMPROVE THE BUSINESS CLIMATE IN SOUTHERN NEVADA. SO THEN WE TALK ABOUT OPPORTUNITY ZONES, I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO TALK ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE. I THINK I HAVE THIS CLICKER. SO WHAT ARE OPPORTUNITY ZONES? SO THE OPPORTUNITY ZONES ARE INCENTIVE FOR INVESTORS THAT CAME OUT OF THE TAX CUTS AND JOBS ACT OF 2017. IT’S A TOOL THAT CAN BE USED FOR BOTH ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. SO LATER I’LL TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE SPECIFIC BENEFITS TO INVESTORS, BUT THE EXPECTATIONS FOR THIS PROGRAM ARE PRETTY HUGE. SO SECRETARY CARSON HAS SAID THAT THERE’S ABOUT $6 TRILLION IN BUILTUP CAPITAL GAINS THAT ARE HELD BY INDIVIDUALS AND CORPORATIONS THAT COULD BE TAPPED INTO FOR THIS PROGRAM. I THINK IT WOULD BE A SMALL PORTION OF THAT, BUT THERE’S JUST A HUGE MARKET FOR USING THIS PROGRAM. SO A TIMELINE OF HOW IT STARTED AND WHERE ARE WE AT TODAY. SO IN DECEMBER 2017, CONGRESS PASSED THE ACT, AND THEY GAVE STATES 120 DAYS TO M CO-UP WITH A LIST OF RECOMMENDATIONS FOR OPPORTUNITY ZONES ACROSS THE STATE. SO THE GOVERNOR HAD UNTIL APRIL OF LAST YEAR TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE TREASURY FOR WHAT ZONES WOULD BE DEEMED OPPORTUNITY ZONES. SO AN OPPORTUNITY ZONE IS A LOW-INCOME TRACK IN THE STATE AND THE GOVERNOR HAD THE ABILITY TO NOMINATE 25% OF THOSE IN THE STATE. SO OUR PROCESS FOR COMING UP WITH THOSE DESIGNATIONS ARE WE REACHED OUT TO LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, INCLUDING THE COUNTY, AND I SPOKE WITH COMMISSIONER KIRKPATRICK AND THE PLANNING AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DIVISIONS OF THE COUNTY. ALL OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, NORTH LAS VEGAS, LAS VEGAS AND HENDERSON, AND THAT HAPPENED ACROSS THE STATE. SO WE REACHED OUT TO FIND OUT WHERE THE PRIORITIES WERE ACROSS THE STATE FOR WHERE WE THOUGHT THERE WOULD BE KNOWN INVESTMENT AND WHERE THIS COULD HAVE THE MOST IMPACT. AND ONCE WE CAME UP WITH THAT, THEN WE DEVELOPED A MODEL TO RANK THE CENSUS TRACKS. WE ALSO INCLUDED NATIONAL STUDIES THAT INCLUDED THE LIKELIHOOD OF INVESTMENT FROM THE URBAN INSTITUTE, AND THEN THE SOCIAL NEED ASPECT. BECAUSE THIS WAS REALLY MEANT TO EXPOSURE INVESTMENT IN LOW-INCOME AREAS, WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE WERE ALSO INCLUDING THAT SOCIAL NEED COMPONENT. AFTER THAT WE WORKED WITH POLICY MAP TO DEVELOP AND INTERACT A MAP WHICH I’LL BE SHOWING YOU AFTER THIS PRESENTATION TO SHOW YOU WHERE THE ZONES ARE LOCATED IN SOUTHERN NEVADA. AND THEN WE REACHED OUT FOR PUBLIC COMMENT. WE HAD A PUBLIC FACING WEBSITE WHERE WE TOOK IN PUBLIC COMMENT FROM A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT SOURCES, AND THEN WE HELD TOWN HALLS THROUGHOUT SOUTHERN NEVADA WITH AND IN CONNECTION WITH URBAN CHAMBER WE HELD ONE AT THE DOOLITTLE CENTRE TO ENSURE THAT THE PUBLIC WAS — VOICE WAS BEING HEARD WHEN WE WERE DEVELOPING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THAT. AFTER THAT, WE SUBMITTED THE NOMINATIONS. THEN THE TREASURY TURNED AROUND PRETTY QUICKLY AFTER THAT, JUNE 2018, AND MADE THE DESIGNATIONS. BUT NOBODY KNEW HOW THESE ZONES WERE OR HOW THE BUSINESSES WERE GOING TO OPERATE IN THESE. THEY HAD PASSED A LAW, BUT HADN’T DEVELOPED REGULATIONS. THE FIRST SET OF REGULATIONS WERE SENT OUT IN OCTOBER LAST YEAR, WHICH PRIMARILY FOCUSED ON REAL ESTATE AND HOW REAL ESTATE DEVELOPERS WOULD THEN BE ABLE TO UTILIZE THIS PROGRAM FOR REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS. IT WASN’T UNTIL LAST WEEK THAT A SECOND SET OF REGULATIONS THAT WERE DROPPED THAT TALKED ABOUT HOW BUSINESSES WERE GOING TO OPERATE IN OPPORTUNITY ZONES, AND THERE’S SUPPOSED TO BE A THIRD SET OF REGULATIONS THAT COME OUT AT THE END OF THIS YEAR, BUT I BELIEVE THE REGULATIONS THAT CAME OUT LAST WEEK, IT WAS ABOUT 170 PAGES OF REGULATIONS, REALLY GAVE SOME DEFINING METRICS FOR HOW A LOT OF THESE BUSINESSES ARE GOING TO OPERATE. AND THEN I THINK IT ALSO ANSWERS SOME OF THE QUESTIONS I THINK ARE IMPORTANT FOR FOLKS LIKE THE COMMISSIONERS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS. ONE OF THOSE WAS I RECEIVE AT LEAST ONE PHONE CALL A WEEK SAYING THAT I HAVE A PROPERTY THAT’S ON THE BOUNDARY. I HAVE SOME PROPERTY THAT’S IN THE ZONE AND THEN OUTSIDE THE ZONE. AND THE REGULATIONS HELPED CREATE SOME FLEXIBILITY FOR BUSINESS OWNERS IN THAT AREA. ONE OF THE TAKEAWAYS ARE IF THE MAJORITY OF THE PROPERTY YOU OWN IS INSIDE THE ZONE, BUT PART OF IT IS OUTSIDE THE ZONE, THEN THEY WOULD CONSIDER THAT ONE CONTINUOUS PIECE OF LAND SO YOU COULD USE IT FOR THE ENTIRE PROPERTY. ANOTHER PORTION WHICH I THINK IS GOING TO HELP SMALL BUSINESSES AND INCUBATORS AND START-UPS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FUND HAS THE ABILITY TO SELL ASSETS IN THE FUND. SO IF YOU INVEST IN A START-UP, YOU CAN EXIT A START-UP AND REINVESTMENT AND THE OPPORTUNITY FUND WOULD HAVE THE ABILITY TO REINVEST THOSE ASSETS WITHIN 12 MONTHS. SO FOR THAT, I THINK THAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT FOR UNIVERSITIES OR INCUBATOR START-UPS WHEN THEY ARE DEVELOPING A PROGRAM, BECAUSE I — COMING UP WITH A LIST, BOTH UNR AND UNLV ARE LOCATED IN OPPORTUNITY ZONES, THAT THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO HELP THOSE START-UPS, ESPECIALLY IN THE TECH SPACE, DEVELOP NEW PROJECTS. THERE WERE A COUPLE OF THE CLARIFICATIONS IN THE LATEST REGULATIONS THAT I THINK PROVIDE SOME CLARIFICATION, BUT ALSO MAKE IT VERY — A LITTLE BIT MORE DIFFICULT FOR SOME BUSINESSES, LIKE IF AN OPPORTUNITY FUND CAN INVEST IN A TRIPLE NET LEASE FOR A PROPERTY, WHICH MEANS THAT, YOU KNOW, THERE’S THIS CONCEPT OF ACTIVE TRADER BUSINESS, AND THEY JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IT’S NOT PASSIVE INVESTMENTS AND THEY ARE ACTUALLY ACTIVE. THE SECOND PART WHICH I THINK IS REALLY GOOD, THOUGH, IS THROUGH — AROUND THE COMMUNITY THERE’S — AND AROUND THE COUNTRY THERE’S THIS — THERE ARE VACANT PIECES OF PROPERTY OR VACANT BUILDINGS THAT HAVEN’T BEEN USED FOR A WHILE, AND THEY SAID THAT FOR AN OPPORTUNITY FUND THEY COULD INVEST IN A VACANT BUILDING THAT’S BEEN VACANT FOR FIVE YEARS AND THEY WOULDN’T HAVE TO PASS WHAT’S CALLED AN ORIGINAL USE TEST, THAT THE CLOCK WOULD THEN RE-START AGAIN. AND THAT’S PRETTY TECHNICAL, AND WE CAN GET INTO THE WEEDS OF THAT, BUT IT’S SOMETHING ELSE TO KEEP IN MIND AS YOU’RE THINKING THROUGH THESE — THIS PROGRAM. SO WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF BENEFITS FOR AN INVESTOR WITH THIS PROGRAM? AND THERE’S REALLY THREE TYPES. ONE IS AN INVESTOR WITH BUILTUP CAPITAL GAINS WANTS TO MAKE AN INVESTMENT IN SOMETHING ELSE, BUT THEY DON’T WANT A TAXABLE EVENT. SO THIS PROGRAM GIVES THEM A TAX DEFERMENT UNTIL THE END OF 2026. THAT’S THE FIRST BENEFIT. THE SECOND IS BASED OFF OF THE — AND THE THIRD ARE BASED OFF THE AMOUNT OF TIME AN INVESTMENT IS HELD. SO IF YOU HAVE BUILT UP CAPITAL GAINS AND YOU WANT TO REINVEST THOSE CAPITAL GAINS IN SOMETHING ELSE AND I’LL GO THROUGH AN EXAMPLE OF THIS LATER, IF YOU HOLD THAT INVESTMENT FOR FIVE YEARS, YOU GET A 10% STEP UP IN BASES, MEANING YOUR TAX LIABILITY DROPS BY 10%. IF YOU HOLD THAT FOR 7 YEARS, IT DROPS BY 15% OR YOU GET A 15% STEP UP IN BASIS. BUT THE THIRD BENEFIT FOR INVESTORS WITH THIS PROGRAM, WHICH IS THE MOST IMPACTFUL, IS IF YOU HOLD YOUR INVESTMENT IN AN OPPORTUNITY FUND FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS, ANY APPRECIATION ON THAT INVESTMENT BECOMES TAX FREE. SO YOU INVEST THAT ORIGINAL $100 OF CAPITAL GAINS, IF AFTER 10 YEARS IT’S WORTH $200, THAT $100 IN APPRECIATION IS TAX FREE. SO WITH THIS SCENARIO, I KIND OF WENT THROUGH IT PRETTY QUICKLY, BUT JUST TO RECAP, SO THERE’S THE INITIAL BENEFIT OF THAT TAX DEFERMENT UNTIL THE END OF 2026, WHICH IS ALSO A — FOR INVESTORS TO INVEST PRETTY QUICKLY WITH THE SECOND BENEFIT IF YOU HOLD THAT INVESTMENT FOR FIVE YEARS YOUR TAX LIABILITY IS REDUCED BY EITHER 10 OR 15%, AND THAT’S REALLY THE CARROT. SO IN ORDER TO MAKE THAT SEVEN YEARS, YOU HAVE TO INVEST THIS YEAR TO GET THAT SEVEN-YEAR BENEFIT BY THE END OF 2026. AND THEN THAT LAST BULLET POINT, IF INVESTMENTS ARE HELD FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS, ANY APPRECIATION IS TAX FREE. AND I THINK THAT’S THE BIGGEST THING THAT INVESTORS ARE LOOKING AT FOR THIS PROGRAM.>>SO MR. ARMSTRONG, SHOULD WE ASK QUESTIONS ALONG THE WAY? BECAUSE I HAVE SOME BECAUSE I THINK EVERYBODY’S TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHERE DO YOU START, RIGHT? OR DO YOU WANT TO GO THROUGH YOUR WHOLE PRESENTATION?>>IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ASK QUESTIONS, PLEASE GO AHEAD.>>WHAT’S BEST FOR YOU? WHAT HELPS ME THE MOST?>>THIS IS MEANT TO BE A CONVERSATION, SO HOWEVER YOU WOULD LIKE TO — IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, I AM MORE THAN WILLING TO ANSWER THOSE.>>OKAY. COMMISSIONER JONES, YOU HAVE QUESTIONS?>>YEAH, AND MAYBE THIS IS FURTHER ALONG IN YOUR PRESENTATION, SO IF I’M JUMPING AHEAD OF THINGS, I’M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS PROCESS AND A 1031 EXCHANGE AND I GUESS I’M CONFUSED THERE.>>MORE THAN WILLING TO HAVE THAT CONVERSATION WITH YOU. IN A 1031 EXCHANGE, WHICH IS A LIKE-KIND EXCHANGE, FOR AN INVESTOR, IF YOU HAVE — IF YOU OWN, LIKE, A McDONALD’S, YOU HAVE TO THEN INVEST IN A LIKE KIND EXCHANGE, WHICH IS YOU KNOW, ANOTHER McDONALD’S OR BURGER KING OR SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THAT. THIS PROVIDES SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THAT, BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO INVEST IN LIKE KIND. YOU ONLY HAVE TO INVEST IN AN OPPORTUNITY FUND. MEANING THAT IF YOU’RE TIRED OF BEING IN THAT SPACE, THIS GIVES YOU THE ABILITY AS AN INVESTOR TO INVEST IN SOMETHING ELSE. THERE ARE CERTAIN LIMITATIONS AS TO WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY FUND CAN INVEST IN. IT’S BASED OFF THE DEFINITION OF THE NEW MARKETS TAX CREDITS PROGRAM WHICH MEANS YOU CAN’T INVEST IN WHAT’S CALLED SIN BUSINESSES, WHICH ARE RACETRACKS, RACENOS, LIQUOR STORES, MASSAGE PARLORS AND — >>SO THE BREAD AND BUTTER, YOU MEAN?>>YES, BUT YOU KNOW, NEVADA IS REDEFINING ITSELF IN FESTIVALS AND EMERGING TECHNOLOGY OR MARIJUANA OR SOME OTHER THINGS THAT, YOU KNOW, MARIJUANA IS NOT EXPLICITLY PROHIBITED IN THE NEW MARKETS TAX CREDIT. SO IF THAT EVER GETS FIGURED OUT, THIS MIGHT BE A POSSIBILITY TO HELP THAT INDUSTRY AS WELL. AND THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THE PROPERTIES THAT ARE LOOKING AT NOT THEIR CASINO OPERATIONS BUT OTHER OPERATIONS TO POSSIBLY MAKE INVESTMENTS IN THESE TRACKS. SO WHEN WE GO TO THE MAP, PART OF THE AIRPORT CENSUS TRACK, BY THE BAY, THAT’S IN AN OPPORTUNITY ZONE. BY PALACE STATION, THAT’S IN AN OPPORTUNITY ZONE CENSUS TRACK, AND MOST OF DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS IS IN A CENSUS TRACK. SO THOSE PROPERTIES ARE KIND OF LOOKING AT SOME OF THOSE AREAS, TO DO DIFFERENT TYPES OF INVESTMENTS RATHER THAN JUST THE BREAD AND BUTTER THAT WE’RE CURRENTLY DOING.>>AND SO IF YOU CREATE AN OPPORTUNITY FUND, WHAT ASSURANCES DO YOU HAVE — I MEAN, THIS WAS CALLED THE TRUMP TAX CUTS, RIGHT? SO WHAT ASSURANCES DO INVESTORS HAVE THAT SOME FUTURE CONGRESS IS NOT GOING TO ROLL BACK OR APPEAL THESE PROVISIONS? THE BENEFITS AS OPPOSED TO LIKE A 1031 EXCHANGE, WHICH ARE PRETTY SHORT TERM, THIS REALLY REQUIRES YOU TO BE INVESTED FOR SEVEN TO 10 YEARS TO GET REAL BENEFITS, OTHER THAN WHAT YOU GET FROM A 1031 EXCHANGE.>>YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT IN THAT, AND THIS WAS PASSED AS PART OF THAT TAX CUTS AND JOBS ACT OF 2017. THAT WASN’T THE FIRST TIME THAT HAS BEEN PROPOSED. THE ORIGINAL PROPOSAL WAS CHAMPIONED BY — IT WAS A BIPARTISAN, TWO SENATORS, TIM SCOTT AND CORY BOOKER, SO THERE’S SUPPORT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE FOR THIS, AND THERE CONTINUES TO BE EVEN MORE SUPPORT NOW THAN WHEN IT WAS FIRST PASSED. SO YOU CAN NEVER TIE THE HANDS OF A FUTURE LEGISLATURE, BUT I WOULD SAY THAT THE PROPONENTS OF THIS ARE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE, SO THE LIKELIHOOD OF IT GETTING REVOKED ARE PRETTY LOW.>>WE MET WITH SENATOR MASTIS AND HER STAFF, AND THEY SAID IF WE HAD ANY CONCERNS OR THINGS AS THEY WERE DEVELOPING, REGULATIONS, THAT THEY WERE HAPPY TO HELP US. SO MR. ARMSTRONG, KNOW THAT. AND ALSO I MET WITH CONGRESS HORSEFRED ON SUNDAY, AND HE TOO IS ON THE ACTUAL COMMITTEE WHERE THEY’RE MAKING SOME ADDITIONAL CHANGES FOR THAT THIRD SET OF REGULATIONS. BUT I WOULD THINK THAT THERE WOULD BE AT LEAST SOME VESTED RIGHT IF YOU WERE IN THE QUEUE, IN THE PROCESS, AND ALREADY MADE IT THROUGH, THAT IF IT WENT AWAY, THAT YOURS WOULD FINISH OFF AT SOME POINT. I WOULD THINK THAT WOULD — I MEAN, THAT’S HOW IT WORKS IN THE REGULAR LEGISLATURE, SO CAN’T — IT’S A TAKING IF YOU — AS IT’S ALREADY BEEN PROJECTED. BUT LET ME ASK THIS QUESTION. AND I’VE BEEN PRETTY UP ON THIS FOR A WHILE, THANK YOU, BECAUSE I’VE BEEN TRYING TO FOLLOW IT BECAUSE IT’S A NEW TYPE OF INVESTMENT AND, QUITE FRANKLY, IT’S NOT OUR STATE DOLLARS OR COUNTY DOLLARS, IT’S SOMEBODY ELSE’S MONEY, SO I’M A LITTLE MRE INTERESTED WHEN IT’S NOT OUR MONEY, RIGHT? SO A COUPLE THINGS. DO THE REGULATIONS ADDRESS WHETHER PEOPLE CAN DOUBLE AND TRIPLE DIP? SO I WOULDN’T WANT — AND THERE ARE SOME AREAS IN THE MAPS WHERE YOU HAVE REDEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY ZONE AND A TAX IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT, RIGHT? AND THAT WOULD PROBABLY MAKE MY HAIR CURL IF I KNEW THAT THEY WERE GOING TO GET ALL THREE OF THOSE, BECAUSE THEN IT DOES IMPACT US. IS THERE ANY BARRIERS THAT PROTECT THAT OR NO?>>SO A FEW DIFFERENT POINTS. YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT, AND THIS IS A CLARIFICATION POINT FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE, IS THERE’S NO DOLLARS ATTACHED TO THIS PROGRAM. RIGHT? THERE’S NO STATE DOLLARS, THERE’S NO LOCAL TLARS, AND THERE’S NO FEDERAL DOLLARS. THIS IS SOMETHING AN OPPORTUNITY FUND ATTACHES A SCHEDULE TO YOUR TAX RETURN, AND IT BECOMES A TAX BENEFIT, THAT THERE’S NO ACTUAL FEDERAL FUNDING FOR THIS, AND THAT OFTENTIMES IS A HARD CONCEPT FOR PEOPLE. THEY WILL REACH OUT TO ME AND SAY HOW MUCH MONEY IS COMING TO MY CENSUS TRACK OR MY AREA, AND THERE WASN’T SOMETHING LIKE THAT THAT WAS DONE.pIT’S JUST A TAX . THE SECOND PART TO YOUR QUESTION AS TO THE STACKING OF INCENTIVES, SO THIS WAS CREATED WITH THE ABILITY SO YOU COULD STACK MULTIPLE INCENTIVES ON TOP OF EACH OTHER, AND THAT’S I THINK DONE ON PURPOSE FOR A COUPLE OVER REASONS. ONE IS THERE ARE SOME KEY AREAS THAT THEY ARE HOPING THAT THIS TYPE OF INCENTIVE WILL HELP. ONE IS FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING, SO THEY ARE LOOKING AT HOW THIS MIGHT LINE UP WITH CREDITS OR SOME OTHER PROGRAM FOR THAT. THE SECOND PART OF THAT IS YOU SEE ACROSS THE COUNTRY THAT THERE’S A NUMBER OVER LOCAL JUXS AND STATES THAT ARE LOOKING AT INCENTIVES TO STACK ON TOP OF THIS. ONE IS FOR OHIO JUST DID LIKE A TECHNOLOGY CREDIT FOR IT. I THINK LOUISVILLE IS DOING SOMETHING FOR HOUSING, AND THIS MIGHT GET TIED INTO ONE OF THE ILLS IN THE LEGISLATURE AS IT RELATES TO THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING CREDITS. BUT THAT WOULD BE THE ONLY WAY FOR THE STATE TO REALLY TRACK WHAT’S GOING ON, BECAUSE THIS CAN BE DONE THROUGH JUST A TAX RETURN, AND THERE’S NO FUNDING ATTACHED TO IT. IT’S GOING TO BE REALLY TRACK.ULT FOR THE STATE TO – THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL BE ABLE TO DO THAT THROUGH THE IRS, AND MAYBE WE’LL GET SOME REPORTING METRICS THROUGH THERE, BUT UNLESS THERE’S SOME CARROT FROM LOCAL GOVERNMENTS THAT THEN WE COULD ATTACH SOME REQUIREMENTS TOO, THIS IS EITHER DONE BY AN INDIVIDUAL OR SMALL GROUP OF INVEST — REALLY WEALTHY INVESTORS THAT WANT TO PROMOTE THEIR OWN PROJECTS OR BY SOCIAL NEED FUNDS WHICH WOULD PROBABLY BE MORE PUBLIC FACING AND NEED A LOT MORE HELP.>>OKAY. AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT, RIGHT, NEVADA AS A WHOLE HAS TO THEIR BENEFIT IS WE CAN MOVE THROUGH THE PROCES A LOT FASTER THAN THE EAST COAST OR THE MIDWEST, AND I THINK THAT WE’RE ALREADY AHEAD. AND THERE’S QUITE A FEW PEOPLE ATTENDING THIS CONFERENCE, SO I’M KIND OF EXCITED. BUT LET ME ASK THIS: I CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHO SETS UP THE OPPORTUNITY FUND? IS THAT LATER IN THE PRESENTATION?>>IT’S NOT, BUT I CAN TALK ABOUT IT, AND FIRST, TO YOUR FIRST COMMENT ABOUT THE HOW WE’RE MOVING QUICKLY, SO THIS WILL BE THE THIRD OPPORTUNITY ZONE CONFERENCE IN THE STATE SINCE THIS WAS PASSED. I’M NOT AWARE OF ANY OTHER STATE THAT HAS MULTIPLE AT THIS POINT. SO BACK IN NOVEMBER OF LAST YEAR, OUR OFFICE IN CONNECTION WITH THE FEDERAL RESERVE PUT ON A CONFERENCE AT THE CITY OF LAS VEGAS CHAMBERS, AND THEN IN MARCH OF THIS YEAR WE DID ANOTHER ONE UP IN RENO. SO THIS ONE THIS WEEK WILL BE THE THIRD, AND THEN THERE’S A CONGRESSMAN IS ONE OF THE KEY SPEAKERS, SO HE’S PRETTY INVOLVED WITH THAT. >>AND THIS ONE HAS A LOT OF OUT-OF-STATE INVESTORS THAT ARE ATTENDING. >>AND THAT IS A CRITICAL POINT. ONE OF THE PROBLEMS FOR SETTING UP THE FUNDS IS THE DOLLARS ARE IN THE SAME AREA AS ALL THE OTHER VENTURE CAPITAL. IT’S IN THE BAY AREA, BOSTON AND NEW YORK, SO THAT’S REALLY THE CHALLENGE, IS MAKING SURE THAT PEOPLE ARE AWARE OF WHAT’S GOING ON HERE AND GETTING INVESTORS HERE. SO HAVING THESE CONFERENCES IN SOUTHERN NEVADA IS REALLY GOING TO SHOW CASE THAT AND BRING PEOPLE HERE WILL HELP DRIVE A LOT OF THAT INVESTMENT. SO TO FINALLY GET TO HOW YOU SET UP AN OPPORTUNITY FUND, SO THIS CAN BE DONE BY — IT CAN’T BE DONE BY ONE PERSON. IT CAN BE DONE BY A PARTNERSHIP OR IT COULD BE DONE BY A CORPORATION OR AN LLC, AS LONG AS IT’S NOT A SINGLE MEMBER LLC. AND ALL THAT HAS — THERE’S A LOT OF DOCUMENTS THAT HAVE TO BE SET UP, BUT ESSENTIALLY IT’S A SELF-CERTIFICATION PROCESS THROUGH THE IRS THAT THEN IS ATTACHED TO YOUR TAX RETURN. SO IT’S NOT REALLY LIMITED TO WHO CAN SET THESE UP. HOWEVER, THERE WILL BE SOME CHALLENGES MOVING FORWARD, AND I THIS HI THE IRS IS GOING TO PROBABLY WATCH THIS PRETTY CAREFULLY AS IT’S FIRST DEVELOPED, BECAUSE IF YOU’RE ISSUING STOCK IN AN OPPORTUNITY FUND OR INVESTORS RECEIVING CREDITS FOR THAT, THEN THERE’S OBVIOUSLY SCC IMPLICATIONS OR OTHERWISE. SO IT’S GOING TO MAKE IT RATHER COMPLICATED. THEY ARE TRYING TO SET IT UP TO WHERE ANYBODY COULD REALLY SET UP AN OPPORTUNITY FUND. I THINK THE EVENTUALITY OF THE REGULATIONS AND HOW INVESTORS ARE GOING TO EXIT THOSE OPPORTUNITY FUNDS ARE GOING TO CREATE SOME SECURITY CONCERNS, SO I THINK IT WILL BE MORE — SET UP OPPORTUNITY FUNDS.>>ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? I MEAN, AND I’LL GET MORE WITH YOU, BUT I’M JUST TRYING TO WONDER ON THAT LOCAL LEVEL WHAT DO WE DO OUTSIDE OF THE OPPORTUNITY ZONES? OUR GOAL IS PROBABLY JUST TO STREAMLINE THE PROCESS AND MOVE THE PROJECTS THROUGH.>>RIGHT, AND I THINK LOCAL GOVERNMENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THAT SAME WAY. LIKE FOR THE NEW MARKETS TAX CREDIT PROGRAM, THE CITY OF LAS VEGAS HAS DEVELOPED ITS OWN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FUND TO BE ABLE TO ISSUE TAX CREDITS IN THAT MANNER. WILL IT BE POSSIBLE FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS TO DO THE SAME WITH THIS PROGRAM? I THINK SO, BUT EVERYBODY IS JUST A LITTLE BIT UNCERTAIN OF HOW A LOCAL GOVERNMENT THEN WOULD BE ABLE TO SET IT UP AND MANAGE THAT, MAYBE THROUGH A NON-PROFIT OR SOMETHING ELSE. WE’VE, AS A STATE, HAVE DONE THAT FOR CERTAIN INDUSTRIES, AND WE HAVE THE VENTURE FUND. SO IT MIGHT BE POSSIBLE TO SET UP A SIMILAR VEHICLE TO MANAGE THAT AND STREAMLINE THE PROCESS. BUT I’M UNCERTAIN AS TO IF ANYBODY ACROSS THE COUNTRY IS DOING THAT AT THIS POINT.>>SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT’S IMPORTANT FOR THE BOARD, YES, THE COUNTY IS TAKING THE LEAD ON THIS ISSUE BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN PAYING ATTENTION WHEN IT WASN’T POPULAR A YEAR AND A HALF AGO, BUT WE — SO THE ENTITIES ACROSS, AT LEAST LEADERSHIP ACROSS ALL THE ENTITIES, WE’VE ALL AGREED THAT WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER AND THAT EVERYBODY BENEFITS, WHETHER IT’S HENDERSON, LAS VEGAS NORTH, LAS VEGAS, BOULDER CITY, AND MESQUITE DON’T NECESSARILY HAVE OPPORTUNITY ZONES, BUT AS WE FILL IN THESE OTHERS, WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BRING OTHER FOLKS TO DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE VALLEY TO DO DIFFERENT THINGS.>>AND THE STAFF AND THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS HAVE — ARE OFFICE-LED SOUTHERN NEVADA OPPORTUNITY ZONE TASK FORCE, SO ALL THE STAFFS HAVE BEEN WORKING TOGETHER TO ENSURE AS THIS PROGRAM ROLLS OUT THAT WE’RE ALL GOING TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE AND WORK TOGETHER ON IT.>>AND TO THE TUNE THAT YOU HAVE OPEN AND INVITED AND ALL THE ELECTEDS HAVE BEEN INVITED FOR A MEET AND GREET DURING THE CONFERENCE TO INTERACT, AND WE’VE ALL AGREED TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE. >>OKAY.>>GO AHEAD, FINISH.>>SO JUST A QUICK BREAKDOWN OF HOW THE OPPORTUNITY ZONES ARE SPREAD OUT ACROSS THE STATE. WE DIDN’T INTENTIONALLY DO THIS, BUT IT WORKED OUT PRETTY WELL. ABOUT 75% OF THE POPULATION ARE IN CLARK COUNTY, AND THEY RECEIVE 73% OF THE DESIGNATIONS. AND THEN WE’VE INCLUDED A FEW RURAL AREAS, INCLUDING PART OF THAT AREA AS WELL. I WISH WE HAD THE ABILITY TO NOMINATE MORE CENSUS TRACKS, BUT BASED OFF THE MODEL WE PUT TOGETHER, THOSE WEREN’T PART OF THE TOP 61.>>I DON’T WANT TO GO BACK AND FORTH ON WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED OR SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED, BUT IT’S JUST SUCH A MISSED OPPORTUNITY. IT’S A MISSED OPPORTUNITY FOR AN AREA OF TOWN THAT HAVE BEEN JUST OVERLOOKED AND HAVE SEEN OPPORTUNITIES LIKE THIS COME OVER THE LAST 50 YEARS, AND IT’S CONTINUOUSLY LOOKED OVER. AND IT JUST REALLY DOES NOT MAKE SENSE THAT YOU HAVE THIS SPLIT, RIGHT, THIS SPLIT RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE OF AN AREA WHERE YOU GOT — YOU ALMOST GOING RIGHT THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF A LOT OF HOUSING AUTHORITY DEVELOPMENT IN THIS AREA, AND YOU CAN’T TELL ME THAT THAT’S NOT AN AREA THAT DOESN’T QUALIFY. THAT’S AN AREA OF TOWN WHERE, YOU KNOW, THERE ARE A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE STRUGGLING TO EVEN GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL. YOU LOOK AT THE — YOU HAVE ONE HERE ON YOUR REPORT, I THINK I SAW A $37,000 — WHAT WAS THAT, COMBINED INCOME? I THINK IT’S MUCH LESS, AND SEVERAL OF THOSE ON CENSUS TRACKS RIGHT IN THIS SPECIFIC AREA HERE. AS A MATTER OF FACT, I THINK IT’S BETWEEN 21 AND $24,000. SO JUST REALLY, REALLY, REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THAT, AND I WISH THAT THERE WAS ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY OR I HOPE THAT THERE’S SOMETHING THAT, WHETHER IT BE THE CITY OF LAS VEGAS, BECAUSE WHEN YOU GET UP TO CHEYENNE, THAT’S THE CUT-OFF — ACTUALLY, THE CUT-OFF IS REALLY CAREY, BUT GOING ACROSS CAREY TO CHEYENNE, YOU KNOW, THAT AREA IS NOT AS HARD PRESSED AS ANYTHING GOING BACK DOWN MLK THERE. THAT’S AN AREA IF YOU EVER NEEDED TO PUT SOME RESOURCES IN, REVITALIZE AND RESTORE SOME QUALITY OF LIFE AND DO SOMETHING AMAZING AS IT RELATES TO THE OPPORTUNITY ZONE, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY.>>YEAH, THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT THERE’S COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY THAT ARE IN THE SAME BOAT. WE WISH WE COULD HAVE NOMINATED MORE CENSUS TRACKS, AND I THINK THE HOPE AND WHAT I’VE SEEN IS THAT MAYBE THERE WILL BE ADDITIONAL LEGISLATURE FROM CONGRESS TO EXPAND THIS PROGRAM. AND IF SO, WE’LL DEFINITELY MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE INCLUDING YOU IN THOSE CONVERSATIONS.>>OKAY. COMMISSIONER GIBSON, DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION?>>I DON’T.>>OKAY. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? OKAY. THANK YOU FOR HIGHLIGHTING THIS. AND I DO WANT TO LOOK AT — ASK STAFF TO LOOK AT IF WE HAVE ONE PERSON THAT AS PEOPLE COME TO US WE CAN KIND OF TALK ABOUT WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE, AND IF INVESTORS WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY ZONES, IS THERE SOMETHING THAT — IS THERE ONE PERSON? BECAUSE RIGHT NOW I DON’T KNOW — I MEAN, WE COULD ALL CALL NANCY, BUT SHE HAS A LIFE, SO I JUST WANT TO SEE IF THERE’S A WAY WE CAN HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY SPECIALIST OR SOMETHING SO THAT AT LEAST COMMISSIONERS COULD — HUH?>>YEAH, SHE HAS A LIFE.>>SO THAT COMMISSIONERS COULD SAY THINGS THEY’D PROBABLY LIKE TO SEE, RIGHT? I’LL USE MYSELF AS AN EXAMPLE. WE’VE BEEN WORKING AROUND THE BASE ON DIFFERENT VENUES, DIFFERENT NEEDS IF SOMEBODY COMES WE’D LIKE TO SEE — WE DON’T HAVE ANY RESTAURANTS. WE’D LIKE TO SEE SOME SOCIAL SERVICE COMPONENTS, SO IF THERE’S A WAY FOR US TO HAVE A ONE PERSON TO HELP US, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.>>YEAH, OKAY.>>COMMISSIONER WEEKLY?>>YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, BUT ONCE AGAIN, MADAM CHAIR, JUST REALLY IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO WHO’S INVITED TO SIT AT THE TABLE. THAT’S IT AND THAT’S ALL. BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU CAN PUT THESE MAPS UP AND THEN YOU HAVE SOMEBODY SIT AND TRY TO DETERMINE WHAT’S BEST FOR SOMEONE’S NEIGHBORHOOD. FORTUNATELY, WHEN WE LOOK AT WHAT’S GOING ON — AND YOU AND I SHARE THIS AREA UP HERE ON CRAIG IN NORTH LAS VEGAS. LOOK AT WHAT’S HAPPENING DOWN CRAIG NOW. WE’RE FINALLY, YOU KNOW, FOR A LONG TIME, I’M SURE THE CITY COUNCIL IN NORTH LAS VEGAS HAVE HEARD IT, BUT YOU AND I GET IT ALL THE TIME. WHERE IS IT THAT WE EVEN GET TO GO AND EAT ON CRAIG? YOU HAVE TO DRIVE ALL THE WAY OUTSIDE OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD TO EVEN HAVE CHOICES. AND SO YOU KNOW, YOU TALK ABOUT PEOPLE WHO PAY TAXES FOR A LONG TIME. THEY JUST WANT THEIR FAIR SHARE ALSO TOO. I’M JUST AS EXCITED AS EVERYBODY ELSE ABOUT THE STADIUM AND ALL THIS OTHER STUFF, BUT DON’T SIT HERE AND SHOW ME SOME MAP AND YOU GOT A DARK BLUE WHERE MILLIONS AND GAZILLIONS OF DOLLARS HAVE ALREADY BEEN POURED IN THIS AREA HERE. WHAT ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOODS? WHAT ABOUT FOLKS WHO LIVE HERE? WHAT ABOUT FOLKS WHO HAVE TO GET UP EVERY SINGLE DAY AND GO TO WORK AND TRY AND PROVIDE A QUALITY OF LIFE FOR THEIR FAMILIES? ONCE AGAIN, IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO WHO GETS INVITED TO SIT AT THE TABLE TO MAKE THIS DETERMINATION, AND IT’S OBVIOUSLY CLEAR THAT THERE WAS A MISSED OPPORTUNITY HERE, AND IF YOU’RE TALKING TO ME ABOUT, OKAY, RICKY BARLOW WAS INVITED TO SIT AT THE TABLE AND HE DIDN’T SHOW UP, THAT’S NEITHER HERE NOR THERE. BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, SOMEONE LOOKING AT SOME MAPS, LOOKING AT INCOME LEVELS, LOOKING AT VARIOUS PARCELS OF QUALIFICATIONS, OBVIOUSLY — AND I DON’T KNOW WHEN YOU HAD THAT MEETING, BECAUSE IF IT WASN’T POSTED THROUGH THE URBAN CHAMBER OR SOME OF THE OTHER COMMUNITY GROUPS, YOU MUST HAVE HAD THAT MEETING IN, LIKE, 11:00 DURING THE COURSE OF THE DAY WHEN SOME PEOPLE ARE AT WORK, THE FEW THAT DO HAVE JOBS IN THIS AREA. SO I’M A LITTLE BOTHERED BY THAT RIGHT THERE, BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS. WE’RE GOING TO MAKE IT WORK AND WE’RE GOING TO KEEP IT PUSHING. WE’LL JUST KEEP FIGHTING TO JUST TRY AND HAVE A VOICE AT THE TABLE. THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR.>>OKAY.>>SO JUST IN RESPONSE SO THAT, THAT CRAIG AREA WASN’T ELIGIBLE FOR DESIGNATION. ABOVE CHEYENNE, THE AREA INCOME MEDIAN WAS TOO HIGH FOR US AND THEY WEREN’T ELIGIBLE. BUT I DO HEAR YOU, AND WE TRIED TO INCORPORATE AS MUCH VOICE AS WE HAD. WE HAD 120 DAYS TO MAKE THESE DESIGNATIONS. WOULD I HAVE LIKED TO TAKE A YEAR TO DO THE STUDIES? ABSOLUTELY, AND WE COULD HAVE THEN ADDED A LOT MORE MEETINGS AND USED A LOT MORE FOCUS GROUPS, BUT WITH THE LIMITED TIME AND RESOURCES WE HAD, I THINK THAT THE STATE DID A PRETTY GOOD JOB OF COMING UP WITH THESE DESIGNATIONS. >>OKAY, COMMISSIONER JONES. >>THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. I JUST HAD A QUESTION FOR YOU. CAN YOU PROVIDE US WITH THE — PROVIDE THE BOARD WITH THE CENSUS TRACKS THAT QUALIFIED AT THE TIME, THE CRITERIA THAT YOU USED TO MAKE YOUR SELECTION OF THE 61, AND THEN IS THERE A POSSIBILITY TO MAKE ANY CHANGES? DOES THE STATUTE LAW FOR CHANGES TO THE DESIGNATED CENSUS TRACKS OR ONCE WE’RE LOCKED IN WE’RE LOOKED IN?>>SO YES I COULD GIVE YOU THE WERE ELIGIBLE AND THE ONES THAT WERE DESIGNATED. TO THE CRITERIA, I’LL PUT TOGETHER A SUMMARY OF THE CRITERIA THAT WE USED. THE THIRD PART IS NO, THERE’S NO FLEXIBILITY IN THE STATUTES. ONCE THOSE INITIAL DESIGNATIONS WERE MADE, THEY LAST FOR 10 YEARS AND THERE’S NO AUTHORITY IN THE STATUTE TO CHANGE, UNLESS CONGRESS COMES BACK AND GIVES US THAT AUTHORITY.>>SO EVEN IF THE MEDIAN INCOME IN A PARTICULAR CENSUS TRACK INCREASES DRAMATICALLY, IT’S LOCKED IN FOR 10 YEARS?>>I THINK THE GOAL IS TO INCREASE THE MEDIAN INCOME IN THESE BY CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR THOSE RESIDENTS.>>OKAY.>>AND LIKE HE SAID, WE’VE ALREADY SPOKE TO OUR CONGRESSAL DELEGATION, SO IF THERE’S ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE BOARD, AND I THINK NANCY AND MARIO, FUTURE PLANNER, CAN SEND US THE MAP THAT’S MORE PERTINENT TO THE CENSUS TRACKS, AND IT’S DESIGNATED BY CENSUS — IT’S COVERED BY CENSUS TRACKS, SO HAPPY TO GET ANYBODY THAT INFORMATION AS WELL AS WHATEVER THE STATE HAS TO TALK ABOUT THAT.>>THANK YOU.>>OKAY, THANK YOU. APPRECIATE YOU COMING. SO MS. KING, I THINK WE WANT TO TAKE ABOUT A 15-MINUTE BREAK. WE DO HAVE FIVE MORE BIGGER ITEMS. SO . . . WE’RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND GO INTO RECESS FOR OUR 15 MINUTES, AND WE’LL COME BACK AT 12.>>OKAY, WE’RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND CALL BACK TO ORDER THE CLARK COUNTY COMMISSION MEETING FOR MAY 7, 2019. MANAGER KING?>>COMMISSIONERS, THE NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA IS TO DISCUSS THE STATUS OF THE MARIJUANA LICENSING APPLICATIONS.>>OKAY, COMMISSIONER SEGERBLOOM?>>THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. I’M NOT SURE WHAT WE’RE ALLOWED TO DO SINCE IT’S THE FIRST TIME IT’S POSTED, BUT MY OBJECTIVE IN PUTTING THIS ON THE AGENDA WAS BACK IN I THINK DECEMBER A MORATORIUM OR SOMETHING WAS PASSED. THREE OF US WEREN’T PRESENT, SO I’M LOOKING TO FIND OUT WHAT THAT ACTUALLY WAS, AND THEN SECONDLY WHAT IMPACT THAT WOULD HAVE ON PEOPLE WHO WERE AWARDED LICENSES WHO WERE SUBJECT TO THAT MORATORIUM SINCE MY UNDERSTANDING IS THOSE LICENSES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IMPLEMENTED AND OPENED BY THE END OF THE YEAR. SO IS THERE A WAY THAT WE CAN AVOID HAVING THOSE LICENSES DISAPPEAR. THAT WAS THE OBJECTIVE. I’M NOT SURE IF WE CAN TALK ABOUT THAT TODAY. THAT WAS MY POINT OF PUTTING THIS ON THE AGENDA.>>SO I’LL JUST RECAP AND MARY ANN, YOU CAN CHIME IF. IN DECEMBER WE KNEW THERE WERE SOME LEGISLATIVE BILLS THAT WERE COMING. WE THEN TALKED TO WHO IS NOW THE GOVERNOR. WE KNEW HE HAD SOME ITEMS TO PUT IN PLACE. AS A BOARD WE SAID WE WOULD WAIT TO SEE WHAT COMES OUT OF THE LEGISLATURE AND THEN MOVE FORWARD. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THERE’S ABOUT A 244-PAGE BILL THAT’S GOING TO DROP RELATIVELY SOON. I KNOW THERE ARE SEVERAL LAWSUITS THAT ARE OUT THERE ON ALL SIDES, SO I JUST THOUGHT THAT IT WAS OUR INTENT, AND I SAID IT ON TV, THAT WE WERE GOING TO WAIT UNTIL THE LEGISLATURE AT THE VERY LEAST FINISH OR WHAT THE NEW REGULATIONS OR BILL WAS GOING TO SAY.>>MADAM CHAIR, AS YOU MENTIONED, THERE ARE A NUMBER OF LAWSUITS OUT THERE CONTESTING THE STATE’S METHODOLOGY AND AWARDED THE LICENSES. I THINK THERE’S ABOUT A DOZEN OF THEM, NOT JUST IN CLARK COUNTY, BUT IN WASHO AND LION COUNTY. AT A RECENT COURT STATUS HEARING, SOME OF THE PLAINTIFFS, THE UNSUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS, INDICATED THAT IF RENO WERE TO GO FORWARD WITH ANY LICENSING, THEY WOULD SUE THE CITY TO BRING INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, BECAUSE THEY WANT STATUS QUO UNTIL ALL OF THOSE ISSUES THAT THE LAWSUITS PRESENT HAVE BEEN RESOLVED BY THE COURTS.>>COMMISSIONER SEGERBLOOM, DO YOU WANT TO . . . >>JUST SO THE QUESTION WOULD BE IF WE’RE DELAYING DOING ANYTHING, DOES THAT IMPACT — I KNOW THE LAW SAID THAT THEY HAD TO BE OPENED BY THE END OF THE YEAR. IS THERE A WAIVER THAT WE COULD GIVE THEM? IS THERE SOMETHING THAT — I’M NOT SAYING WE HAVE TO DO THIS TODAY, BUT — >>I WOULD THINK THE BETTER FORUM FOR THAT WOULD BE IN THE COURTS BY ANY OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT WANTED TO APPLY. IT SHOULD ALL BE DONE IN ONE FORUM AND NOT OPENING IT UP IN DIFFERENT JURISDICTIONS, I DON’T THINK.>>OKAY. SO I’M NOT SURE, SO YOU’RE SAYING THAT THE PEOPLE WHO WERE LICENSED SHOULD ASK THE COURT FOR THAT RELIEF? — WHO WERE AWARDED LICENSES SHOULD ASK THE COURT FOR THAT RELIEF?>>YES, SINCE SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT ARE SUING THE STATE AND SUCCESSFUL LICENSING ARE MOVING TO INTERVENE IN THOSE VARIOUS LAWSUITS, THEY HAVEN’T BEEN CONSOLIDATED YET BECAUSE OF SOME PROCEDURAL ISSUES, BUT THE SUCCESSFUL LICENSEES ARE ACTING IN COURT AS WELL AS THE PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T GET THE LICENSES. SO IF THEY FEEL THAT THEIR LICENSES ARE IN JEOPARDY, THEY COULD ASK FOR RELIEF IN WHATEVER APPROPRIATE FORM THAT THEY CHOOSE. THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT COURT ACTIONS GOING ON RIGHT NOW.>>AND SPECIFICALLY THE DECISION OR THE VOTE IN DECEMBER WAS TO AT LEAST WAIT UNTIL AFTER WE SEE WHAT THE LEGISLATURE DOES?>>RIGHT, SO THE MOTION, IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THE MOTION WAS TO NOT — AND YOU VIOLATED THAT MOTION BECAUSE THE MOTION WAS TO NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT MARIJUANA UNTIL JULY 1, BUT WE’VE DONE IT SEVERAL TIMES. SO WE’VE BEEN TRYING TO BE REASONABLE AT THAT, BUT BECAUSE UNTIL WE SEE WHAT THOSE BILLS DO OR THAT THAT BIG BILL DOES, I THINK A LOT OF THINGS ARE GOING TO BE DISCUSSED, RIGHT? TRANSPARENCY. I THINK THAT’S A BIG PORTION OF IT. THE CONTROL BOARD IS GOING TO BE ANOTHER PORTION OF IT. AT LEAST FROM MY CONVERSATIONS WITH THE GOVERNOR EARLY INTO THIS, THOSE WERE ALL OF THOSE THINGS THAT WERE GOING TO COME UP, SO IT DIDN’T MAKE SENSE FOR US TO KEEP GETTING IN THE MIDDLE OF ANYTHING, AND I REALIZE THAT THEY HAD THIS MANY — THIS MUCH TIME FRAME FROM THE DAY THAT THE LICENSE WAS AWARDED, BUT AS ALL OF THE OTHER LAWSUITS CAME IN, IT DIDN’T MAKE SENSE FOR US TO GET IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL OF THAT.>>AND THAT PARTICULAR REQUIREMENT IS IN FORCED BY THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF TAXATION WHICH NOW HAS JURISDICTION OVER THAT ENTITY, AND I DON’T THINK ANY ACTION BY THE COUNTY CAN SUPERSEDE THAT AT THIS POINT.>>ALL RIGHT. WELL, BASED UPON THE CONVERSATION, I WOULD ASK THAT MAYBE WE CONTINUE THIS TO THE FIRST MEETING OF JULY TO MAYBE SEE WHAT THE LEGISLATURE HAS DONE AND SEE IF THERE’S ANYTHING APPROPRIATE AT THAT POINT.>>OKAY.>>ITEM NO. 86 IS TO DISCUSS THE GUIDELINES FOR MARKETING MATERIALS FOR MAINTAIN ADVERTISING.>>COMMISSIONER SEGERBLOOM?>>THANK YOU AGAIN, MADAM CHAIR. I ASKED TO PUT THIS ITEM ON. AGAIN, I’M NOT SURE WHERE WE’RE AT IN THE PROCESS, BUT THE CONCERN IS THAT THE STATE MONITORS ADVERTISING AND APPROVES IT. THE COUNTY MONITORS ADVERTISING AND APPROVES IT, BUT AS FAR AS I KNOW, THE COUNTY DOESN’T HAVE ANY SPECIFIC RULES FOR HOW THEY JUDGE THE ADVERTISING. I DON’T THINK THERE WAS EVER AN ORDINANCE PASSED OR ANYTHING, AND SO MY QUESTION WOULD BE — AND AGAIN, THERE’S SOME BILLS IN THE LEGISLATURE, SO PROBABLY WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO POSTPONE THIS UNTIL JULY, BUT THE ISSUE IS IF WE’RE GOING TO HAVE STANDARDS, MAYBE WE SHOULD PUT THEM INTO SOME TYPE OF ORDINANCE AS OPPOSED TO JUST WHAT THE STAFF FEELS IS APPROPRIATE.>>THERE IS SOME ORDINANCE LANGUAGE CURRENTLY EXISTING, BUT IT WOULD BE BEST TO SEE WHAT — IF THERE’S ANY NEW LEGISLATION THAT WOULD AFFECT THAT BEFORE WE MOVE TO AMEND THAT.>>ALL RIGHT. AND THAT’S FINE WITH ME AS FAR AS IF WE COULD PUT THIS ON FIRST MEETING IN JULY TO SEE WHAT THE LEGISLATURE’S DONE.>>OKAY. NOTED. MOVE TO ITEM 87.>>ITEM 87 IS TO DISCUSS THE CLARK COUNTY TELEVISION ASSISTING THE CLARK COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT IN BROADCASTING OF SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS.>>THANK YOU, CHAIRWOMAN AND COMMISSIONERS. I’M THE COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR FOR THE COUNTY. THE SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS ARE HELD ON THE 2ND AND 4TH THURSDAY OF THE MONTH AND LIVE STREAMS THEM ON THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WEBSITE. THOSE MEETINGS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR PLAYING ON DEMAND ON THE CCSD WEBSITE AS WELL AS ON ITS FACEBOOK PAGE. IF WE AS A COUNTY DECIDE TO CABLE CAST THE MEETINGS OF THE SCHOOL BOARD ON CLARK COUNTY TELEVISION, WE THINK THE COST WOULD BE FAIRLY MINIMAL. OUR ASSUMPTION IS THAT VEGAS PDS WOULD SEND US THE LIVE SIGNAL OF THE SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS THROUGH THE ETHER NET. VEGAS PBS WOULD NEED AN ENCODER ON ITS END AND WE WOULD NEED A DECODER ON OUR END. THE COST WOULD BE PERHAPS $6,000 UNDER THE CURRENT CONFIGURATION. I HAVE TO POINT OUT ONE CAVEAT. THE CHIEF ENGINEER AT VEGAS PBS IS ON VACATION, IS OUT UNTIL TOMORROW, SO WE WOULD NEED TO CONFIRM OUR ASSUMPTIONS WITH HIM. IF YOU WERE TO GO ON THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WEBSITE AND WATCH THE MEETINGS ON-LINE, YOU WOULD FIND THAT THE QUALITY IS NOT GREAT. IT’S NOT HIGH DEFINITION, WHICH CLARK COUNTY TELEVISION SIGNAL CURRENTLY IS. SO IF WE WERE TO PROCEED AND AIR THOSE MEETINGS, WE WOULD SEEK TO RECEIVE A HIGH DEFINITION SIGNAL FROM THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. AND I WOULDN’T WANT TO SPECULATE ON THE COST INVOLVED UNTIL WE COULD SPEAK TO VEGAS PBS’S CHIEF ENGINEER. ADDITIONALLY, THERE WOULD BE ONGOING COSTS IN TERMS OF PERSONNEL. SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS BEGIN AFTER-HOURS AT 5 P.M., AND WE WOULD NEED TO BRING OUR PART-TIME CONTROL ROOM STAFF IN TO SWITCH OVER FROM COUNTY PROGRAMMING TO THE VEGAS PBS FEED WHEN IT COMES IN. THEN THAT STAFF MEMBER WOULD NEED TO WAIT FOR THE END OF THE MEETING. IT COULD BE 2, 4, 6 HOURS, AND THEN WHEN THE MEETING ENDS, SWITCH BACK TO REGULAR COUNTY PROGRAMMING WHEN THE SCHOOL BOARD MEETING ENDS. THE COST FOR THAT IS MAYBE 1500, 2,000 A YEAR FOR THOSE PERSONNEL COSTS. THERE MIGHT BE SOME MINIMAL EXTRA LABOUR WITH MORE FREQUENTLY UPDATING OUR ELECTRONIC PROGRAMMING GUIDE TO ACCOMMODATE THE BOARD MEETINGS, AND WE WOULD ALSO NEED TO ACCOMMODATE SOME EXTRA VIDEO STORAGE.>>SO COMMISSIONER SEGERBLOOM? THIS IS ANOTHER ITEM — >>THANK YOU, AND I APOLOGIZE FOR MONOPOLIZING THE ITEMS TODAY, BUT THAT WAS ACTUALLY A BILL I THINK YOU VOTED FOR, MADAM CHAIR, BACK IN 2011, WHERE I ASKED TO HAVE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT — >>DOES THAT MEAN I CAN’T HAVE AN OPINION?>>WELL, IN OTHER THINGS YOU’VE SAID I VOTED SO I CAN’T CHANGE MY MIND NOW. BUT OF COURSE WE CAN ALWAYS CHANGE OUR MIND ABOUT HOW WE CHANGED OUR MIND. BUT ANYWAY, I’VE ALWAYS FELT THAT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT SPENDS MORE MONEY THAN ANYBODY, BUT IT’S REALLY SOMETHING THAT NO ONE WATCHES, AND THOSE OF US WHO ARE OUT THERE IN THE PUBLIC, THEY SAY I SAW YOU LAST NIGHT ON TV OR WHATEVER. IT’S AMAZING THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY WATCH THIS CHANNEL. IT WOULD BE THURSDAY NIGHTS, SO IT WOULDN’T IMPACT OUR MEETINGS, PER SE. BUT IF THERE WAS AN INTEREST, I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE US REACH OUT TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AND SEE WHAT IT WOULD TAKE — HOW HARD IT WOULD BE TO DO THAT. I’VE TALKED TO CABLE, AND THEY SAID PRELIMINARILY THEY DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT. AND THEN OUR COUNCIL WISELY SUGGESTED WHY DON’T WE HAVE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT MEET HERE, WHICH WOULD SAVE A LOT OF THE PROBLEMS. SO ANYWAY, I JUST THINK THERE’S AN OPPORTUNITY IF PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED.>>OKAY. DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? COMMISSIONER NAFT?>>I’M JUST CURIOUS, I LIKE THE IDEA OF US HELPING WITH TRANSPARENCY ACROSS OTHER ENTITIES. I’M JUST CURIOUS, HAS THE SCHOOL DISTRICT — MAYBE THEY DID WHEN CONSIDERED THE BILL IN 2011, BUT HAS THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WEIGHED IN OR HAVE THEY COME TO US? WE’RE BEING PROACTIVE HERE?>>I HAVE NOT REACHED OUT TO THEM. I THOUGHT I’D GET A SENSE FROM THE BODY BEFORE WE — ALTHOUGH I’VE HEARD INDIRECTLY THE SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS ARE VERY EXCITED.>>COMMISSIONER WEEKLY?>>THANK YOU. I TOOK A POLL IN THE BACK TO FIND OUT HOW THE STAFF FELT ABOUT THIS, AND OF COURSE COMMISSIONER NAFT, YOUR OFFICE WAS VERY VOCAL ABOUT THIS, AND — I’M JUST JOKING. THEY ARE ALL LAUGHING. I CAN HEAR THEM IN THE BACK. BUT AT ANY RATE, EVERYBODY THINKS IT’S A GREAT IDEA. I KNOW, TIFF, I THREW YOU UNDER THE BUS, RIGHT? IT’S ABOUT TRANSPARENCY, AND TO ME, I THOUGHT ABOUT IT, MADAM CHAIR, AS YOU AND I WERE KIND OF DISCUSSING IT, THE PARTNERSHIP AS FAR AS PEOPLE NOT HAVING ACCESS TO COMPUTERS AND THOSE WHO DO HAVE CABLE, JUST TO BE ABLE TO SEE WHAT’S GOING ON FROM A SCHOOL BOARD LEVEL, KEEPING UP WITH WHAT’S HAPPENING AS FAR AS EDUCATION IS CONCERNED HERE, AND I DON’T SEE WHY NOT, BECAUSE I SEE COMMISSIONER JONES AND HIS — IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD EIGHT TIMES A DAY, SO I WOULDN’T MIND SEEING SOME SCHOOL BOARD INFORMATION BEING SHARED. SO I THINK IT WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA. THANK YOU.>>I SHOOT A NEW ONE EVERY DAY, SO I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU . . . [ Laughter ].>>ANYBODY ELSE? COMMISSIONER GIBSON. >>SO I KNOW THAT IT’S DIFFERENT AND IT’S BEYOND WHAT IS REALLY IN FRONT OF US, BUT WHAT ARE THE LIMITATIONS OR WHAT ARE THE — IS THERE A PATHWAY TO BROADCAST OUR MEETINGS IN A WAY THAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE OTHER MEANS OF — OTHER PLATFORMS FOR THEIR TELEVISION VIEWING CAN SEE IT. IF YOU DON’T HAVE COX, YOU CANNOT SEE WHAT WE DO. SO IS — WHAT ARE OUR LIMITATIONS — I KNOW THAT THEY ARE A FRANCHISEE OR LIKELY A FRANCHISEE, AND SO PART OF THE NEGOTIATION COULD BE OR WOULD HAVE BEEN THAT WE GET OUR CHANNEL UP, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER PLATFORMS?>>SO WE CURRENTLY LIVE STREAM OUR MEETINGS ON YouTube, ALONG WITH ALL OF OUR PROGRAMMING. ADDITIONALLY, THE CHANNEL 4 IS STREAMED ON THE COUNTY WEBSITE. WE HAVE HAD SOME INTERNAL DISCUSSIONS ABOUT POSSIBLY BRINGING THE PROGRAMMING TO HULU AND SOME OF THOSE OTHER KINDS OF PLATFORMS, AMAZON FIRE, ET CETERA. SO WE COULD EXPLORE THOSE FURTHER AS WELL.>>AND ANYTHING THAT WE HAVE ACHIEVED ALREADY, IT WOULD BE GOOD TO JUST OVER AND OVER AND OVER PUT THAT IN THE PUBLICATIONS THAT WE SEND OUT SO THAT PEOPLE KNOW TO GO THERE, TO YouTube AND OTHER PLACES. THANK YOU.>>OKAY. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANYTHING? AND, ERIC, WHEN YOU GO BACK AND TALK TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, AND MARY ANN KNOWS BECAUSE I TEXT HER SOMETIMES WHEN WE’RE HAVING THESE LONG MEETINGS, I THINK THAT IT CENTRALIZES, RIGHT, FOR AN OPPORTUNITY FOR MORE PEOPLE TO BE PART OF IT, BUT IN THE PAST THE TRUSTEES WERE NOT SO WILLING TO LEAVE THE ED SHED TO COME HERE. WE HAVE DONE IT ON OCCASION AND IT’S WORKED OUT JUST FINE, BUT CAN YOU ASK — BECAUSE THEY GET MONEY FROM PBS, THERE’S SOME FEDERAL GRANT DOLLARS THAT ARE AVAILABLE. AND MAYBE SOME OF THAT CAN OFFSET SOME OF THE COST SO WE COULD LOOK AT BOTH SIDES OF IT AND TRY AND REALLY FORM A TRUE PARTNERSHIP.>>IN TALKING TO TOM AXETELL, THE GM OVER THERE, THEY HAVE COMMITTED GETTING A SIGNAL TO OUR HEAD IN SO THAT WE COULD PUT IT UP. THE QUESTION WOULD BE HOW MUCH REALLY DOES IT COST AND WHO WOULD PAY FOR IT. THE COSTS SEEM MINIMAL AT THIS POINT.>>AND DOES THAT INCLUDE OUR STAFF? DOES OUR STAFF HAVE TO STAY? I KNOW IN THE PAST ALEX ORTIZ WAS CHARGED WITH STAYING. DOES THAT INCLUDE OUR STAFF STAYING OR — I MEAN, YOU WERE GOING TO TALK ABOUT ALL OF THAT, RIGHT?>>YEAH, WE COULD, YEAH, SURE, CERTAINLY. IF THEY HOLD THE MEETINGS HERE OR WHETHER THEY GET THE SIGNAL TO OUR END AND WE HAVE TO PUT IT UP THROUGH CHANNEL 4, IN EITHER CASE WE HAVE TO HAVE SOMEBODY HERE TO SWITCH. >>OKAY. ALL RIGHT. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? OKAY. PERFECT. THANK YOU. THANKS FOR — >>WOW, I HAD A GOOD IDEA.>>YOU DID! YOU HAVE SOME. NO! [ Laughter ].>>[INDISCERNIBLE]. [ Laughter ].>>WHAT I WAS DOING WHEN I THOUGHT OF IT.>>GOOD, GOOD, GOOD. ALL RIGHT. NEXT.>>OKAY, COMMISSIONERS, WE’LL GO TO ITEM NO. 83, WHICH IS TO RECEIVE AN UPDATE FROM STAFF ON THE 2019 LEGISLATIVE SESSION AND TAKE ACTION AS DEEMED APPROPRIATE. COMMISSIONERS, REALLY ALL I HAVE IN TERMS OF REPORTING TODAY IS JUST KIND OF THE STATUS OF WHERE WE ARE WITH THE COUNTY BILLS. THERE IS ANOTHER COMMITTEE DEADLINE ON MAY 17, AND SO I WOULD IMAGINE THAT THERE WILL BE A NUMBER OF BILLS THAT WILL BE PROCESSING THROUGH THE COMMITTEE. AS THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE SERVED AT THE LEGISLATURE, THERE WILL BE QUITE A BIT GOING ON BETWEEN NOW AND JUNE 3 WHEN THE SESSION ENDS, AND SO I’LL TRY TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU AS WE’RE EXPECTING SOME OF THE LARGER BILLS TO COME OUT, PARTICULARLY MAYBE TO ADDRESS EDUCATION. THERE MIGHT BE SOME FUNDING ISSUES THAT MAY PERTAIN TO US, AND SO AS THOSE BILLS DROP, WHICH I’M ANTICIPATING SOMETIME THIS WEEK, THAT I CAN PROVIDE YOU SOME MORE INFORMATION WITH REGARD TO WHAT THOSE BILLS ARE GOING TO DO. THE BILL ADDRESSING THE DELINQUENT PROPERTIES WAS HEARD BY SENATE COMMITTEE REVENUE ON MAY 7. ALSO SB36, WHICH IS THE BILL THAT WOULD TAKE THE — APPRAISALS. THAT WAS HEARD BY THE ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE ON GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS. ALSO HEARD ON MAY 7. AND THEN LASTLY WE HAVE SB77, WHICH WAS GOVERNING THE PURCHASING BY A COUNTY HOSPITAL THAT WAS ACTUALLY ALREADY HEARD, AND IT WAS SCHEDULED FOR WORK SESSION I BELIEVE YESTERDAY, BUT GIVEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES IN CARSON CITY, I’M SURE THAT WILL BE DELAYED TO ANOTHER DATE. SO SO FAR THE BILLS THAT WE HAVE AND WE’RE TRACKING FOR CLARK COUNTY BILLS ARE MOVING THROUGH THE SESSION, AND I HAVE NOT HEARD AND DO NOT ANTICIPATE THAT THERE WILL BE ANY ISSUES HOPEFULLY WITH GETTING THOSE PASSED OUT OF THE COMMITTEE AS WELL AS THE HOUSE. I DON’T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO REPORT, UNLESS YOU ALL HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT SPECIFIC BILLS OR SOMETHING YOU’D LIKE FOR US TO TAKE A LOOK AT OR TRACK OR GIVE A STATUS ON.>>OKAY. DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? SEEING NONE, THANK YOU FOR THAT UPDATE.>>NEXT WE CAN MOVE TO ITEM NO. 89, WHICH IS YOUR ADDENDUM ITEM. WE HAVE AN ITEM TO DISCUSS THE MONORAIL’S FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE RESOLUTION.>>GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS. CURTIS SMILES, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF LAS VEGAS MONORAIL COMPANY. FIRST LET ME THANK YOU FOR GIVING US THE OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON WHERE WE ARE, NOT ONLY WITH OUR PROJECT BUT WHERE WE ARE IN FINANCING AND GETTING THIS THING ACTUALLY MOVING. I’M PLEASED TO REPORT TO YOU TODAY THAT WE HAVE COMPLETED THE DESIGN FOR THE BAY PORTION OF THE EXTENSION. THE ONLY THING REMAINING IS TO ADDRESS A FEW COMMENTS WE RECEIVED BACK FROM THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT RELATED TO THAT EXTENSION AND THE STATION AT MANALAY BAY, AND TO ADDRESS A FIRE ACCESS ISSUE THAT HAS ARISEN AS A RESULT OF WHERE THE STATION IS LOCATED. THE SAND STATION IS ABOUT 65% DESIGNED. WE HAVE BEEN COORDINATING THE EXTERIOR PORTION OF THAT DESIGN WITH MSG WHO, AS YOU ARE AWARE, ARE BUILDING A SPHERE PROJECT IMMEDIATELY ADJACENT AND WILL BE CONNECTED TO OUR STATION VIA A BRIDGE THAT WILL ALSO CONNECT IT TO THE WIN EMPLOYEE BRIDGE THAT CROSSES SANDS AVENUE JUST TO THE EAST OF COBALT. THE STUDY THAT WE HAVE USED TO — AS A BASIS FOR OUR FINANCING, WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY THE SECURITY FOR OUR FINANCING PROPOSALS FROM THE VARIOUS LENDERS, THAT STUDY’S BEEN UPDATED HERE A COUPLE TIMES OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST FEW YEARS TO INCLUDE THE 2017 AND 2018 RESULTS, OPERATING RESULTS OF THE COMPANY. IT’S BEEN VETTED EXTENSIVELY BY THESE PERSPECTIVE LENDERS TO THE EXTEND THAT THESE GUYS ARE LITERALLY CALLING US ABOUT EVERY WEEK TO GET UPDATE INFORMATION FOR THEIR OWN MODELS THEY PUT TOGETHER TO PROVIDE THE SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS THAT THEY USE AS THE BASIS FOR THEIR FINANCING. THE STATION AT SANDS AND THE STATION AT MANDALAY BAY, BOTH OF THOSE PROJECTS ARE INCLUDED IN THE RTC’S TRANSPORTATION INVESTMENT BUSINESS PLAN. IT’S INCLUDED IN THE LAS VEGAS GLOBAL ECONOMIC ALLIANCES COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. IT’S ALSO PART OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE TRANSPORTATION STEERING COMMITTEE AS PROJECTS THAT SHOULD MOVE FORWARD TO HELP RELIEVE CONGESTION AND ADDRESS A LOT OF WHAT THE ANTICIPATED TRAFFIC WILL BE AS A RESULT OF SEVERAL OF THESE PROJECTS BEING CONSTRUCTED. THERE’S A NEARLY 19,000-SEAT ENTERTAINMENT COMPLEX THAT WILL BE ATTACHED TO, APPROXIMATELY 1500 FEET TO THE SOUTH OF US IS ANOTHER HALF MILLION SQUARE FEET THAT’S UNDER CONSTRUCTION BY CAESARS FOR A CONVENTION FACILITY, IN ADDITION TO SOME OF THE OTHER PROJECTS THAT HAVE GONE ON. SO CONGESTION IN THAT AREA IS GOING TO GROW DRAMATICALLY. THE SAND STATION ALONE FROM THE PROJECTED RIDERSHIP WILL HELP REMOVE APPROXIMATELY 500,000 — A LITTLE OVER 500,000 VEHICLE TRIPS FROM THE ROADWAY EVERY YEAR. BY WAY OF COMPARISON, VALLEYVIEW IS EXPECTED TO HANDLE ABOUT 40,000 CARS A DAY BY 2025. CONGESTION IN THAT AREA IS GOING TO GROW DRAMATICALLY, NOT ORGANICALLY, AND AS A RESULT OF THESE PROJECTS BEING BUILT. SO OUR STATION THERE IS GOING TO ADD A TREMENDOUS LIFT TO ADDING CAPACITY IN THAT AREA. WE HAVE BEEN TIRELESSLY WORKING WITH LENDERS, VARIOUS LENDERS ACROSS VARIOUS MARKETS TO NOT ONLY HELP THEM UNDERSTAND WHERE WE ARE WITH THE PROJECT, BUT TO GIVE THEM AND PROVIDE THEM INFORMATION ABOUT HOW THE PROJECT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED, WHERE THE RISKS ARE WITH THE PROJECT, AS WELL AS HELPING THEM PUT TOGETHER VARIOUS PROPOSALS THAT THEY HAVE SENT TO US TO HELP US FINANCE THIS PROJECT. ORIGINALLY WHEN WE CAME TO YOU BACK IN 2017, I THINK FOR THE RESOLUTION — NOVEMBER 2017, WE REFERRED TO THIS PROJECT AS THE MANDALAY BAY EXTENSION, BUT IT HAS ALWAYS INCLUDED THE SAND STATION AS PART OF THAT PROJECT. IT IS ALWAYS SAND STATION HAS ALWAYS BEEN INCLUDED AS PART OF OUR FINANCING FOR THIS PROJECT. SO THE RESOLUTION THAT YOU APPROVED FOR US BACK IN 2017 HAS ALWAYS BEEN ANTICIPATED AND WILL BE PART OF THE FINANCING FOR BOTH PHASES OF THIS PROJECT. WE HAVE OVER THE SEVERAL — LAST SEVERAL MONTHS AND DISCUSSIONS WITH LENDERS, VARIOUS LENDERS, AND THE MARKET FOR THIS KIND OF PROJECT IS RELATIVELY NARROW IN TERMS OF FINANCING. THOSE LENDERS HAVE SUGGESTED THAT WE PERHAPS WOULD FACE THE FINANCING OF THIS — PHASE THE FINANCING OF THIS SO THAT WE WOULD GET A PORTION OF THE PROJECT DONE IN ADVANCE WHILE THE REST OF THE PROJECT AS WE DEVELOP AND COMPLETE OUR OBLIGATIONS FOR THE AIRPORT, THAT WILL COME AFTER THOSE OBLIGATIONS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED. SPECIFICALLY FOR US, THOSE OBLIGATIONS INCLUDE ADHERING TO THE REIMBURSEMENT AGREEMENT THAT WE SIGNED WITH THE AIRPORT LAST YEAR TO PERFORM CERTAIN ACTIONS, INCLUDING COMPLETING A MITIGATION AGREEMENT WITH THE AIRPORT’S TWO PRIMARY FIXED BASE OPERATORS. ONE OF THOSE AGREEMENTS IS — HAS BEEN SIGNED BY US, AS WELL AS THE TENANT. THE OTHER AGREEMENT IS READY TO BE — IS NOT READY TO BE SIGNED YET. THERE IS ONE MORE ISSUE THAT REMAINS. WE’VE REACHED OUT, AND WE TALKED TO THE — THAT TENANT, AND WE EXPECT THAT MITIGATION AGREEMENT TO BE RESOLVED OVER THE COURSE OF THE NEXT MONTH OR SO. THE AGREEMENT DRAFT HAS BEEN DRAFTED, AND IT’S READY TO GO EXCEPT FOR THAT ONE PROVISION. SHORT OF THAT, THERE ARE A FEW OTHER REQUIREMENTS OF THE FAA THAT ARE PART OF OUR AGREEMENT WITH THE AIRPORT THAT ARE STILL WAITING TO BE COMPLETED AS WELL. THE WAY WE’VE DECIDED TO FINANCE THIS PROJECT BASED ON OUR EXTENSIVE DISCUSSIONS WITH OUR LENDERS IS TO PHASE IT INTO TWO PIECES. THE FIRST PIECE WILL GO FORWARD AS THE SANDS ONLY FINANCING. IT WILL CREATE THE STATION AT SANDS. IT WILL REFINANCE THE — PAY FOR THE COST OF THE STATION AT SANDS. PAY FOR SOME OF THE INVESTMENT THAT WE HAVE IN DEVELOPING THE PROJECT AS WELL AS REFUND ALL THE EXISTING DEBT THAT THE COMPANY HAS. THE SECOND PHASE, THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT WAYS THAT LENDERS HAVE LOOKED AT THIS. WE’VE KIND OF SETTLED ON ONE, WHICH BRINGS IN THE REMAINING FUNDING FOR MANDALAY BAY SEPARATELY, AND FUNDS THE MANDALAY BAY EXTENSION, AS WELL AS THE STATION AT MANDALAY BAY SEPARATELY. IT WILL EITHER COME IN AND REPLACE THE EXISTING FINANCING FOR SANDS OR BE IN ADDITION TO THAT FINANCING. IT DEPENDS ON HOW THE SANDS FINANCING FINISHES. THE SYSTEM TODAY HAS OPERATED VERY WELL. IN FACT, IT’S KIND OF BUKD THE TREND IN TERMS OF VISITATION AND TRANSPORTATION HERE IN THE LAST SIX MONTHS. WE FINISHED THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2019 UP ABOUT 6 OR 8%, DEPENDING ON WHETHER IT’S RIDERSHIP OR REVENUE. WE’VE STARTED THIS QUARTER OFF KIND OF IN THE SAME POSITION. WE’RE UP ABOUT 3 OR 4% ON RIDERSHIP AND REVENUE SO FAR THIS YEAR, WHICH KIND OF BUCKS THE TREND. WE HAVE BENCHMARKED OUR PROJECTIONS BASED UPON WHAT VISITATION IS DOING, WHAT PROJECTIONS ARE AT McKAREN, AS WELL AS SOME OF THE INFORMATION WE GET FROM OUR HOTEL PARTNERS AS TO WHAT THEY EXPECT TO SEE OVER THE COURSE OF THE YEAR. WE BUILD THAT INTO OUR MODEL AND COME UP WITH OUR PROJECTIONS. SO FAR, AS I MENTIONED, WE’RE KIND OF BUCKING THE TREND IN TERMS OF PERFORMANCE THERE. THE EXPECTATION FOR THE SANDS FINANCING IS THAT THIS PARTICULAR LENDER IS VERY AGGRESSIVE IN TERMS OF HIS SCHEDULE. HE’S WANTING TO CLOSE FINANCING ON THE SANDS STATION BY THE END OF MAY. IT’S VERY AGGRESSIVE. WE HAVE BEGUN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ALL OF THE SECURITY DOCUMENTS AS WELL AS THE TRANSACTIONAL DOCUMENTS, INCLUDING A STATEMENT AND INDENTURE, SEVERAL OF THE COLLATERAL AGREEMENTS HAVE ALL BEEN DRAFTED. THE LENDERS ON THEIR SIDE HAVE ALSO BEEN WORKING DILIGENTLY TO COMMENT ON THOSE DOCUMENTS, PROVIDE US COMMENTS BACK, AND TO MOVE FORWARD WITH PREPARATION TO ACTUALLY DISPENSE THE FUNDS. THE EXPECTATION, MY EXPECTATION IS THAT REALISTICALLY WE’RE PROBABLY CLOSE AROUND THE FIRST OR SECOND WEEK OF JUNE, REALISTICALLY. JUST GIVEN WHERE WE ARE IN EXCHANGE OF DOCUMENTS AND COMMENTS. THE MANDALAY BAY PORTION OF THAT FINANCING WILL FOLLOW JUST ON, WITHIN A FEW MONTHS OF THAT. THERE’S STILL MORE WORK TO DO WITH THAT LENDER ON THE ACTUAL TRANSACTIONAL DOCUMENTS THEMSELVES. WE WERE ABLE TO ADVANCE THE SAND STATION AHEAD OF THAT AT THE REQUEST OF THE SAND STATION LENDER. THE PROJECT TODAY IS STILL EXPECTED TO CONNECT, YOU KNOW, 42,000 ROOMS ON THE STRIP, IN THE STRIP CORRIDOR. IT WILL CONNECT 10 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF CONVENTION SPACE. IT WILL TAKE OFF OF ROADWAYS APPROXIMATELY A MILLION AND A HALF CAR TRIPS A YEAR. ANNUALLY. ONCE IT’S COMPLETED. WE’VE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEFORE AND COMPARED THAT TO A NUMBER OF OTHER SYSTEMS AROUND THE COUNTRY AND WHAT YOU GET IN TERMS OF AN INVESTMENT AND RETURN ON INVESTMENT WHEN YOU CREATE SYSTEMS LIKE THIS. THIS IS IN THE UPPER QUADRANT OF WHAT YOU RECEIVE IN TERMS OF RETURN ON INVESTMENT WHEN YOU BUILD A SYSTEM LIKE THIS FOR THE LENGTH THAT WE’RE BUILDING AND THE NUMBER OF PASSENGERS THAT WE’LL CARRY. THE PROJECT IS ALSO — HAS RECEIVED, AS I MENTIONED, BY THE LENDERS, EXTENSIVE REVIEW, PARTICULARLY THE RIDERSHIP PROJECTIONS. THE RIDERSHIP PROJECTIONS, THE WAY WE CONTRACT IT WITH OUR RIDERSHIP CONSULTANT, WE RESTRICTED HIM TO USE ONLY AND ASSUME ONLY THOSE TRIP GENERATION CHARACTERISTICS THAT ARE CURRENTLY EXISTING ON THE SYSTEM. WE DID NOT ALLOW THEM TO USE ANYTHING ELSE BEYOND HOW THE SYSTEM CURRENTLY GENERATES RIDES, AND AS A RESULT OF THAT, THE LENDERS HAVE GAINED A HIGH LEVEL OF CONFIDENCE NOT ONLY IN OUR PROJECTIONS BUT WHEN THEY’VE GIVEN THOSE PROJECTIONS THEIR SENSITIVITY ADJUSTMENTS, THOSE SENSITIVITY ADJUSTMENTS STILL SUGGEST THAT THE SYSTEM WILL BE ABLE TO NOT ONLY PAY BACK THAT LOAN, BUT WILL BE ABLE TO GENERATE THE KIND OF REVENUE AND RETURN ON THE SYSTEM THAT WILL ALLOW US TO NOT CONTINUE ON WITH THE FINANCING AS WE HAD IT PLANNED. THAT’S THE EXTENT OF MY REPORT. WELCOME ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE. WE ARE HERE TODAY SPECIFICALLY TO REQUEST THAT — A REQUEST THAT THE LENDERS, ALL THE LENDERS THAT WE’VE TALKED TO HAVE REQUESTED OF US. GOING BACK NOW ALMOST TWO YEARS. EACH PORTION OF THE MARKET THAT WE’VE APPROACHED WITH THIS PROJECT AND THE WAY THAT THESE LENDERS HAVE PROPOSED TO FINANCE IT ALL REQUIRE US TO HAVE INSTEAD OF A RESOLUTION A TWO-PARTY AGREEMENT FOR THE SUPPORT THAT THE BOARD APPROVED BACK IN 2017. AND SO OUR REQUEST TODAY IS THAT WE BE ALLOWED TO WORK WITH MS. KING AND HER STAFF TO WORK ON THAT TYPE OF AGREEMENT AND BRINGING THAT BACK BEFORE YOU IF YOU SO CHOOSE AT A LATER MEETING.>>OKAY. THANK YOU. THAT WAS VERY THOROUGH PRESENTATION. I PUT THIS ON THE BOARD FOR A COUPLE OF REASONS. ONE, I WANTED TO KNOW WHERE WE WERE AT AS FAR AS MOVING FORWARD. MYSELF, WE HAVE A CAPACITY ISSUE THAT WE GOT TO START BEING SERIOUS ABOUT IN ADDRESSING, AND I THINK THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF MODES OF TRANSPORTATION THAT GOT TO WORK TOGETHER. SO THAT’S WHY I WAS ASKING SO I GUESS I’LL TAKE ANY COMMENTS FROM THE BOARD. COMMISSIONER GIBSON?>>IN THE CONTEXT OF THE COMMITMENT THAT YOU’RE ASKING FOR FROM THE COUNTY.>>YES, SIR.>>TODAY YOU’RE TELLING US THAT THE COMMITMENT HAS TO BE CONTEXTUALLY AT THE TIME OF AND AS A PART OF THE $32 MILLION FINANCING FOR THE SANDS STATION, THE MSG STATION. AM I RIGHT ABOUT THAT?>>MOSTLY. IT IS PART OF THE LARGER FINANCING, BUT IT NEEDS TO BE DONE AS PART OF THIS FIRST PHASE.>>THE REASON I ASKED THIS QUESTION IS THAT SIMPLY OUT OF THE PROGRESSION OF THESE DISCUSSIONS OVER TIME, I THINK THAT THERE HAS BEEN A QUESTION ABOUT WHAT MORE MIGHT THE NEXT LENDER REQUIRE OVER AND ABOVE THE $4.5 MILLION THAT IS SOUGHT THAT IS A PART IN TERMS OF THE TIMING THE FIRST FINANCING. WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THAT?>>WELL, AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF DISCUSSIONS WITH LENDERS, AND WE’VE TRIED TO CONTEXTUALIZE FOR THEM, YOU KNOW, WHERE THE SUPPORT HAS BEEN FOR THIS PROJECT. NOT JUST THE SUPPORT FROM CLARK COUNTY, AS YOU EXPRESSED IN THAT RESOLUTION IN NOVEMBER OF 2017, BUT ALSO TO THE SUPPORT FROM OUR HOTEL PARTNERS. AND WE’VE HELD VERY CONFIRM TO THAT — TO THOSE PARAMETERS. THE SUPPORT THAT THE BOARD HAS ADOPTED FOR US BACK IN 2017, WE’VE DRAWN A VERY FIRM LINE WITH LENDERS ABOUT WHERE THE AVAILABILITY IS FOR THAT. WE HAVE A VERY GOOD UNDERSTANDING FROM TALKING TO MS. KING AND MS. MILLER AND THEIR STAFFS ABOUT THE RESTRICTIONS OF THOSE FUNDS. WE’VE MADE THAT VERY CLEAR TO LENDERS. TO FINANCE THIS PROJECT FOR IS – GOING TO BE BASED UPON THAT AMOUNT OF FUNDS AS WELL AS THE SUPPORT THAT WE CAN EXPECT FROM THE RESOURCE. AND, LOOK, MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, THAT HAS MADE DISCUSSIONS MORE DIFFICULT WITH LENDERS BECAUSE LENDERS WILL ALWAYS TRY TO GET MORE SECURITY THAN LESS, BUT WE’VE HELD VERY FIRM TO THAT NUMBER AND BELIEVE THAT FROM THE LENDERS THAT WE’VE TALKED TO AND THE ONES THAT HAVE GIVEN US TERM SHEETS THAT WE BELIEVE WE CAN FINANCE IT WITH THAT AMOUNT.>>SO THERE ARE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS THAT COME OUT OF THAT. SO THERE WOULD BE RESORT — YOU’RE CONFIDENT THAT THERE WILL BE RESORT PARTICIPATION?>>BASED ON THE CONVERSATIONS WE’VE HAD TO DATE, I’M VERY CONFIDENT THAT WE’LL GET THE PARTICIPATION THAT’S REQUIRED TO SECURE THE LOAN FROM THE LENDERS. >>AND IS THAT AN ANNUAL CONTRIBUTION OR IS THAT A ONE-TIME ONLY CONTRIBUTION AIMED AT GETTING YOU ALL THE WAY TO FULL PAYMENT AND FINANCING FOR THE SANDS AND MSG STATION?>>YOU KNOW, I OFTEN SAY THERE’S A TENDENCY TO REFER TO RESORTS KIND OF MONOLITHICALLY. THEY ARE NOT ONE ENTITY. THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT COMPANIES OUT THERE WITH SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS THAT THEY OPERATE THEIR BUSINESSES, AND SO AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL DIFFERENT DISCUSSIONS ABOUT HOW THAT SUPPORT WOULD COME IN. TODAY I BELIEVE THE SUPPORT WILL COME IN IN THE FORM OF ONE INVESTMENT IN DEBT, BUT SOME OF THE DISCUSSIONS HAVE LENT THEMSELVES TO A COUPLE OF OTHER ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO ACTUALLY GET THE SUPPORT IN FROM THE RESORTS.>>NOW WE HAVE AN EXISTING RESOLUTION THAT I THINK THAT — MY THOUGHT ABOUT THAT RESOLUTION IS THAT IT IS BINDING UPON US. WE HAVE TO RECEIVE A REQUEST FOR AN APPROPRIATION AND A FUNDING. WE HAVE TO CONSIDER EVERYTHING AROUND IT. WE HAVE TO ACT IN GOOD FAITH, AND IF THERE IS A NEED AND A PREDICTED SHORTFALL THAT IN WHATEVER FORM, WHETHER IT’S IN THE FORM OF RESERVES OR TRULY CAPACITY TO DEFUSE DEBT, WHATEVER IT IS, YOU — DIFFUSE DEBT, WHATEVER IT IS, THEN WE MAKE A GOOD FAITH COMMITMENT TO NOW THAT’S WHAT WE CURRENTLY – HAVE. I PROBABLY HAVE BEEN A LITTLE LOOSE IN THE WAY I’VE DESCRIBED IT, BUT I THINK ESSENTIALLY THAT COVERS WHAT THE CURRENT RESOLUTION IS. BUT TODAY WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE INITIAL LENDER IS — REQUIRES MORE. HELP US UNDERSTAND WHAT IS REQUIRED, WHY AND HOW BEST WE CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. BECAUSE IT’S EXTREMELY DIFFICULT FOR US. WE UNDERSTAND THAT TODAY WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE ORIGINAL MONORAIL AND ITS CURRENT STATIONS AND TRAINS AND ALL THE REST OF IT. WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT ANY OF THAT. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A BRAND NEW STATION, AND WE’RE TALKING ABOUT AN EXTENSION OF THE LINE FROM — TO THE SOUTH FROM MGM TO MANDALAY.>>RIGHT.>>BUT HELP US UNDERSTAND HOW THIS CHANGED SO THAT WE UNDERSTAND CONTEXT, BECAUSE IT IS A LEAP. IT’S DIFFERENT FROM WHAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE IN PLACE.>>RIGHT.>>SO I’M GOING TO CHIME IN HERE BECAUSE I WANT YOU TO ASK — I WANT YOU TO ANSWER SOMETHING AS WELL. REALLY I THINK HERE’S THE CONCERN OR QUESTION THAT PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT. SO TODAY WE GIVE YOU — WE’VE SAID 4.3 MILLION AS A WATERFALL SITUATION THAT WE COULD — THAT YOU COULD COME TO THE COUNTY AND ASK, AND THERE’S ALSO A CANCELLATION PIECE IN THERE THAT SAYS IT CAN BE CANCELLED AT ANY TIME. I GOT TO BELIEVE THAT THE LENDERS DON’T LIKE THAT CAVEAT BECAUSE I PROBABLY WOULDN’T LIKE THAT EITHER. BUT IN ADDITION TO HIS QUESTION, ANSWER THE REAL BIG ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, RIGHT? IS IT THE INTENT THAT THE 4.3 MILLION IS FOR EACH SIDE OF THE FUNDING OR IS IT JUST A ONE TIME ALL TOGETHER? BECAUSE I THINK THAT’S REALLY WHERE WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT IF A RESOLUTION MAKES SENSE. IT IS REAL TAX DOLLARS. IT IS WITHIN THE RESORT CORRIDOR TO ADDRESS CAPACITY ISSUES, AS WE HAVE IN THE PAST. BUT I MEAN, JUST TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THAT PIECE, BECAUSE I UNDERSTOOD THAT AS A ONE-TIME, ONE DEAL AND NOT — IT DIDN’T MATTER WHO WAS LOANING WHAT WHICH TIME.>>THAT’S CORRECT.>>IT COMES BETTER COMING OUT OF YOUR WORDS.>>OKAY, IF IT’S OKAY I’LL ANSWER THAT QUESTION FIRST, BECAUSE THAT — >>OF COURSE. SHE IS THE CHAIR, AFTER ALL.>>GOSH, I’M TRYING TO ADD TO YOUR QUESTION.>>WHAT YOU SAID IS CORRECT. THE INTENT, THE PLAN AND THE COMMITMENT FROM OUR — ON OUR PART AS WELL AS OUR LENDERS’ PART IS THAT THERE’S ONE 4.5 MILLION. THERE’S ONE. IT APPLIES TO BOTH FINANCINGS. WE HAD ORIGINALLY INTENDED THAT THERE WOULD BE ONE FINANCING THAT WOULD FINANCE BOTH SANDS AND MANDALAY BAY TOGETHER, ONE TIME, ONE CLOSING. JUST IN THE DISCUSSIONS AND AS TIME HAS PROGRESSED FORWARD, IT BECAME VERY CLEAR THAT THERE WAS A NEED TO SEPARATE THE FINANCINGS IN THE TWO PHASES. THERE’S A COST ADVANTAGE FOR US SPLITTING IT INTO TWO PHASES. AT NO TIME HAS THERE BEEN DISCUSSIONS ANYTHING ABOVE 4.5 MILLION FOR THE TWO FINANCINGS TOGETHER. NOT FOR US AND NOT FROM THE LENDERS. HOPEFULLY THAT ADDRESSES THAT QUESTION. THE OTHER QUESTION I THINK — I WANT TO CORRECT ONE THING. MAYBE NOT CORRECT BUT JUST CLARIFY THE 1% ROOM TAX THAT’S COLLECTED BY THE COUNTY IS RESTRICTED TO THE RESORT CORRIDOR SET UP BY THIS BOARD AND CAN ONLY BE USED ON TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS WITHIN THAT CORRIDOR WITHIN THE PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY. SO WE CAN’T USE THAT TO PAY FOR RESERVES OR TO PAY TO PAY DEBT SERVICE. WE’RE NOT ALLOWED. IT’S NOT ALLOWED BY LAW. AND, LOOK, THOSE HAVE LENT THEMSELVES TO SOME OF THESE DETAILED DISCUSSIONS WITH THE LENDERS, BUT THOSE ARE THE RESTRICTIONS UNDER WHICH IT WAS APPROVED BACK IN 2017, AND THAT’S WHAT WE’VE REQUIRED THESE LENDERS TO LIVE BY. AS A RESULT OF THAT, THE FUNDS THAT WE RECEIVE, WHAT WE’RE ASKING TODAY FOR THOSE FUNDS, IS TO BE PART OF A TWO-PARTY AGREEMENT. AS YOU MENTIONED, THE RESOLUTION WAS APPROVED BACK IN 2017, AND THAT RESOLUTION, THE WAY IT’S DRAFTED, DOESN’T PROVIDE THE LENDERS WITH ANY CERTAINTY ABOUT WHETHER THOSE FUNDS WOULD ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO COME IN. AND SO WHAT THEY’VE REQUESTED FROM US, EVERY LENDER WE’VE TALKED TO AND EVERY SEGMENT OF THE MARKETS, WE’VE TALKED TO SEVERAL DIFFERENT TYPES OF MARKETS. MUNICIPAL MARKET, WE’VE TALKED TO A LOT OF DIFFERENT LENDERS. TO A LENDER, THEY’VE ALL REQUIRED THAT BECOME A TWO-PARTY AGREEMENT, WHICH IS WHY WE’RE HERE TODAY. I HOPE I ADDRESSED YOUR QUESTION. MAYBE I DIDN’T.>>WELL, I — THAT’S THE WAY I UNDERSTAND IT, AND I FELT IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO EXPRESS THAT IN THIS RECORD. AND I THINK YOU EXPLAINED THE FACT THAT THERE’S A SINGLE $4.5 MILLION REQUEST. SO THE WAY WE HAVE IT IN FRONT OF US — OR I DON’T THINK WE HAVE ANYTHING IN FRONT OF US TODAY, BUT THE WAY THAT I UNDERSTAND IT IS TO CHANGE WOULD BE THAT IT’S AN ABSOLUTE COMMITMENT. BUT EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPENS, THEN. YOU MAKE A REQUEST — WELL, I GUESS WE HAVE TO DO THE APPROPRIATION, SO WE BUDGET FOR IT, WE APPROPRIATE IT, WE SEND IT TO YOU, BUT THEN THERE ARE OTHER THINGS THAT CAN HAPPEN, AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS. WILL YOU PLEASE HELP US UNDERSTAND THOSE?>>YES. SO THE WAY THAT OUR ADVISORS HAVE STRUCTURED THIS, THE RESTRICTIONS ON THE MONEY DICTATE THE WAY THAT WE’RE FINANCING THE PROJECT, AND THAT — AND THE WAY THAT THE MONEY IS RESTRICTED, OUR REVENUES FIRST GO TO PAY DEBT SERVICE FIRST. OUR O & M. IF THERE ARE REVENUES REMAINING, THEN THOSE REVENUE GO IN TO PAY A COUPLE OF PLEDGED RESERVE ACCOUNTS, A DEBT SERVICE RESERVE ACCOUNT AS WELL AS A CAP X RESERVE ACCOUNT. THE COUNTY MONEY, IF THAT MONEY IS USED, CAN ONLY BE USED BY US TO PAY FOR MAINTENANCE AND/OR CONSTRUCTION, IF THERE IS ANY, IN THE PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY. SO AS A RESULT OF THAT, THE LENDERS NOW VIEW THAT AS BEING AFTER OUR REVENUES. SO THE REVENUES THAT WE GENERATE TO BOTH SECURE THE DEBT AND PAY FOR THE OPERATIONS, THOSE ARE EXHAUSTED IF WE EVER — IF IT EVER COMES ABOUT THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO USE THOSE FUNDS THAT ARE APPROPRIATED.>>SO IT WOULD BE STATED EXPRESSLY IN THE FINANCING AGREEMENTS?>>YEP.>>THAT THAT PRIORITY — >>THAT IT IS — IT’S NOT ONLY EXPRESSLY STATED IN THERE, IT IS LIKZ. >> SO WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS CASE, WE HAVE THE FIRST FINANCING AND I TAKE IT WE MUST DO THIS IN ORDER TO FOR YOU TO CLOSE YOUR FIRST FINANCING. SO WE DO THIS AND THEN THERE’S SOME CHANCE THAT MAYBE THE SECOND DEBT THAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT THE SECOND FINANCING THAT IS THE 140 MILLION OR WHATEVER THAT NUMBER IS MORE OR LESS THAT TAKES CARE OF MANDALAY EXPANSION COMES ALONG AND I THINK YOU MENTIONED EARLIER THAT THAT LENDING MAY PAY OFF THE 32 MILLION. NOW, IN THE EVENT THAT HAPPENS, CAN WE THEN EXPECT THAT THE OBLIGATION WHICH IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE TIED TO THE FIRST FINANCING GOES AWAY AT THE TIME THAT THE FIRST DEBT IS PAID?>> AS I MENTIONED, ORIGINALLY THE FOUR AND A HALF WAS ORIGINALLY CONTEMPLATED TO SECURE THE ENTIRE FINANCING. SO WHETHER WE DO ONE FINANCING AND ONE CLOSING OR TWO AS WE’VE CURRENTLY HAVE THIS PLAN TO GO THAT FOUR AND A HALF SECURES THE ENTIRE AMOUNT. BOTH THE SANDS AND THE ADDITIONAL FINANCING. >> I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS WE MA HAVE DISCUSSED WITH YOU IS WHEN MIGHT THIS END? IF YOU REFINANCE THE DEBT, IT SEEMS LIKE THAT’S A LOGICAL PLACE, BUT IT CAN’T BE IF YOU WERE TO REFINANCE WITH THE CONTEMPLATED SECOND INSTRUMENT THAT YOU SELL RIGHT. AND IF IT’S A COMMITMENT YOU USE IT EXPLAIN THAT PORTION OF WHAT WHAT’S BEEN PROPOSED IF YOU SEE- DIDN’T NEED THE FULL FOUR, FOUR AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS, THERE WOULD BE SOME CREDIT TO US FOR THE SUBSEQUENT PAYMENT OR A SUBSEQUENT YEARLY PAYMENT. >> OBVIOUSLY WE STILL NEED TO DISCUSS SOME OF THOSE DETAILS WITH MISS KING AND HER STAFF, BUT OUR INTENT WOULD BE THAT IF WE DON’T NEED IT, IT EITHER COMES BACK OR THERE’S NO SUBSEQUENT REQUEST. SO WHILE YOU MAY APPROPRIATE IT IN EACH SUBSEQUENT YEAR, IT MAY NEVER GET TRANSFERRED AFTER THE FIRST YEAR. THERE MAY BE NO SUBSEQUENT TRANSFERS. OUR PROJECTIONS SHOW THAT YOU WOULD BE MAKING THAT TRANSFER ONCE AND NEVER AGAIN BECAUSE OUR PROJECTIONS SHOW THAT WE’LL BE ABLE TO WHAT THIS FINANCING IS PROJECTING US TO BE ABLE TO DO. AS I MENTIONED BEFORE THE RIDERSHIP STUDY IS BASED SOLELY ON WHAT THE CURRENT SYSTEM IS DOING TODAY AND HOW IT GENERATES RIDES TODAY. AS A RESULT OF THAT, THE LENDERS HAVE BECOME VERY CONFIDENT THAT WE’LL BE ABLE TO GENERATE WHAT WE’RE PROJECTING TO DO BECAUSE THE RIDERSHIP STUDY IS SOLELY BASED UPON JUST MORE OF WHAT WE’RE DOING. IF THOSE PROJECTIONS IF WE’RE OFF ON THOSE PROJECTIONS, 5, TEN, 15 PERCENT WE STILL HAVE ENOUGH TO NOT NEED THIS SUPPORT. SO WE’RE VERY CONFIDENT IN NOT ONLY THE RIDERSHIP PROJECTION BUT WHAT WE’RE SAYING IS IN REGARDS TO HOW THAT SUPPORT WOULD BE USED. >> THEN FINALLY, IF IN FACT THERE IS AN EXPECTATION THAT YOUR CURRENT DEBT GETS PAID WITH THE 32 MILLION AND IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING, I MEAN YOU’RE ON PARALLEL TRACKS YOU’RE WORKIN TO CLOSE ALL OF YOUR FINANCINGS, CORRECT ONE TRAILS THE OTHER BY A COUPLE OF MONTHS MAYBE, WHAT IS THE POSSIBILITY OF MAYBE WAITING AND JUST DOING ALL OF IT WITH A SINGLE FINANCING?>> WELL, ONE OF THE DISADVANTAGES OF USING THE LENDERS THAT WE’RE USING AND I’M SAYING USING BECAUSE THESE ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE ACTUALLY COME TO THE TABLE WITH ACTUAL PROPOSALS TO DO THIS IS THAT THE INITIAL SANDS STATION FINANCING IS BEING PERFORMED BY A PARTICULAR LENDER WHO HAS A PARTICULAR TIMEFRAME WITHIN WHICH TO DEPLOY THIS CAPITAL AT THIS RATE. AND AFTER THAT WINDOW CLOSES, THIS PARTICULAR PIECE OF CAPITAL IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. AND WE WILL NOT DO EITHER OF THE FINANCINGS AND IT IS ALSO PARTICIPATING IN THE LARGER FINANCINGS AS WELL WHICH IS WHY ONE OF THE THINGS THAT KIND OF LED US TO SPLITTING THIS UP. AND THE RATING OF THE DEBT WHAT DO YOU EXPECT. >> TODAY THE EXPECTATION IS THAT IT WILL BE UNRATED. JUST HAD SOME EXCHANGES WITH A COUPLE OF ADVISORS THIS MORNING. THE MARK IS PRETTY STRONG FOR UNRATED SECURITIES. THERE WAS JUST A DEAL COMPLETED BY THE VIRGIN TRAINS HERE A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO FOR BILLION $700 MILLION THAT PORTION OF THAT A LARGE PORTION OF THAT DEBT WENT UNRATED. THE SAME GROUP DID $600 MILLION ISSUANCE ABOUT A YEAR AGO UNRATED. AND SO UNRATED DEALS HAVE A PLACE IN THE MARKET TODAY IN THE MARKETS RELATIVELY STRONG. IT’S DOWN 400 POINTS THIS MORNING I’M NOT SURE HOW LONG THAT’S GOING TO LAST. BUT THERE IS A PLACE FOR THESE DEALS IN THIS PARTICULAR MARKET TODAY, AND THERE’S A WINDOW THAT’S OPEN FOR US TO BE ABLE TO DO IT AND WE’RE TRYING TO GO THROUGH THAT WINDOW BEFORE IT CLOSES. >> THANK YOU. MADAM CHAIR IF I COULD JUST SAY, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I THINK WE REALLY HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND IS THAT WE HAVE THE CAPACITY OF THE MONORAIL TODAY IN PLACE THE CAPACITY WILL BE EXPANDED IF THE NEW STATIONS ARE ADDED AND WE DON’T HAVE ANY WAY AT ALL TO TRANSFER THAT CAPACITY ANYWHERE ELSE EXCEPT INTO TNC’S BUSES, TAXIS OR PRIVATE RENTAL CARS AND PRIVATE VEHICLES. THERE IS NO OTHER OPTION OPEN TO US. AND AS DIFFICULT AS IT IS FOR US TO MAKE THESE KINDS OF COMMITMENTS THAT WE HOPE YOU’RE RIGHT THE EXPECTATIONS AND YOUR PLAN IS AS YOU HOPE FOR, BUT WE CAN’T COUNT ON THAT. WE HAVE TO PLAN ACCORDING TO WHATEVER THE LEAST DESIRABLE CIRCUMSTANCE IS. >> I DO THE EXACT SAME THING. >> BUT THE ONE THING, THE ONE REALITY THAT WE FACE IS WE HAVE NO OTHER WAY TO REPLACE THE CURRENT CAPACITY OF THE MONORAIL. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY OPEN TO US. IF YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT A MILLION AND A HALF CARS, IF YOU JUST TAKE FOUR-DAY WEEKENDS AND MULTIPLY THEM OUT TIMES THE YEA YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT LOTS AND LOTS OF VEHICLE TRIPS. JUST IF YOU COUNT THOSE WEEKENDS. SO I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT FOR US TO KEEP THAT IN MIND AS DIFFICULT AS THIS IS BECAUSE IT DOES CHANGE THINGS BUT IT CHANGES THINGS IN THE CONTEXT OF SIGNIFICANT CHANGE. THIS IS MATERIAL. SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE SYSTEM ITSELF AND IF I MAY, WE’VE VIEWED THESE TWO PROJECTS AS THEY ARE GAME CHANGERS FOUGHT JUST THE SYSTEM IN TERMS OF OUR ABILITY TO PERPETUATE WHAT WE CURRENTLY PROVIDE IN THIS COMMUNITY IN TERMS OF CAPACITY BUT IT ALSO ALLOWS US TO LOOK AT OTHER WAYS THAT THE SYSTEM CAN ENHANCE THE EXPERIENCE FOR VISITORS HERE IN LAS VEGAS AND ONE OF THOSE WAYS IS THE WAY THAT PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO TRANSACT. PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO TRANSACT WITH CELL PHONES NOW WITH CASH OR CREDIT CARDS AS A RESULT OF THAT BEING ABLE TO PROPOSE WHAT TO DO WITH THESE TWO SYSTEMS HAVE ENABLED US TO HAVE THE KINDS OF CONVERSATIONS WITH THE KINDS OF LARGE VERY LARGE MULTINATIONAL COMPANIES THAT ENABLES US TO CREATE THOSE TYPES OF PLATFORMS THAT PEOPLE ARE WANTING TO USE AND IF WE CONTINUE TO ATTRACT THOSE KINDS OF PEOPLE IN TOWN THAT WE ALL KNOW WE HAVE TO HAVE IF WE’RE ALL GOING TO BE EMPLOYED, THOSE INDIVIDUALS ARE COMING IN TOWN WANTING TO TRANSACT A CERTAIN WAY AND THIS PROJECT ALONG WITH THE WAY WE’RE OPERATING OUR COMPANY INVESTING THOSE RESOURCES IS GOING TO ALLOW US TO ADDRESS THAT WAY OF TRANSACTING. >> I HAVE SEVERAL OTHER QUESTIONS I’LL DO COMMISSIONER WEEKLY AND JONES AND NAFT. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE TIME THAT YOU AND YOUR TEAM HAVE SPENT COMING TO VISIT WITH MY OFFICE AND BRINGING US UP TO SPEED. I DO HAVE TO SAY YOU’VE COME A LONG WAY BASED ON A NUMBER OF THE MEETINGS AND PRESENTATIONS YOU’VE HAD BEFORE THIS BOARD. I APPRECIATE WHAT I’M HEARING TODAY. IT SEEMS AS IF THERE’S A LOT OF HEADWAY THAT HAVE BEEN MADE. THERE’S STILL A LONG WAY TO GO. BUT JUST EARLIER WE WERE TALKING ABOUT PARTNERSHIPS. AND HERE’S ONE HERE THAT WE AS THE COUNTY, WE’RE GOING TO GET IT TOGETHER, LEAVE IT ALONE AS IT RELATES TO THIS PARTNERSHIP. AND I KNOW AS MY CHAIRMAN THAT SITS HERE THE CONVENTION AUTHORITY, I’M VERY GRATEFUL THAT UNDER MY TUTELAGE I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO CELEBRATE THE RECORD BREAKING ATTENDANCE OF VISITORS COMING TO THIS TOWN. AND HE’S GOING TO EXPERIENCE THE SAME THING UNDER HIS LEADERSHIP BECAUSE HE’S GOT THE VISION THAT’S BEEN PUT OUT THERE AS IT RELATES TO ATTRACTING MORE PEOPLE TO COME HERE. OUR BIGGEST CONCERN IS HOW DO WE MOVE PEOPLE ALONG AS THEY GET HERE AND MR. CHAIRMAN I’M SURE YOU WOULD AGREE WITH ME. WE GET A LOT OF THOSE COMPLAINTS WHETHER IT BE FROM THOSE WHO COME HERE FOR THE MAGIC SHOW WHETHER THEY’RE COMING HERE FOR CES. THOSE ARE SOME OF THE BIGGEST THINGS WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH. I HEARD A LOT OF COMMENTS ABOUT EXPECTATIONS AND ASSUMPTIONS AND WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THAT AS WELL. AND I GET CONCERNED WHEN WE TALK ABOUT ASSUMPTIONS, BUT ONE OF THE THINGS I DON’T KNOW IF IT RELATES TODAY WITH THIS CONVERSATION HERE TODAY MADAM CHAIR I WANT TO THANK YOU AND MANAGER KING WHO BROUGHT PEOPLE TOGETHER TO HAVE THIS CONVERSATION SO WE CAN GET TO WHERE WE ARE TODAY BECAUSE I WAS REALLY AFRAID FOR YOU MR. MILES THAT WE WERE GOING T BE STUCK IN THE MUD. STILL, I WANT TO SEE THIS THING WIN AND I’VE GOT TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, AS A LOCAL NATIVE NEVADAN, I’M GOING TO SHAMELESSLY SAY I’VE NEVER BEEN ON THE MONORAIL BEFORE. I KNOW. AND LISTEN, AT LEAST I’M HONEST AND SOME OTHERS WHO WON’T BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO DISCLOSE THEY’VE NEVER RIDDEN ON THE MONORAIL BEFORE. YOU DON’T RIDE IT TO WORK IT DOESN’T COME TO YOUR HOUSE. AT ANY RATE, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CORRECT THAT. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE TO SET THE EXAMPLE. AND IF WE WANT THIS PARTNERSHIP TO WORK, WE GOTTA DO EVERYTHING WE CAN AND SO WHETHER IT BE THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OUR MANAGERS, THE AIRPORT, ALL THE ENTITIES WE’VE GOT TO ALL BE ON THE SAME PAGE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR DUE DILIGENCE, BUT ONE THING I MAYBE WANT TO ASK YOU TO THINK ABOUT I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN ANSWER IT TODAY HOW ARE YOU FEELING ABOUT THIS NEW CONVERSATION THAT WE’RE HAVING, AND I’M SURE OUR CHAIRMAN OF THE CONVENTION AUTHORITY IS GOING TO SHARE SOME MORE STUFF WITH US LATER ON THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. BUT AS WE LOOK AT THIS OTHER TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM THAT WE’RE TALKING UNDERGROUND. THAT’S GOING TO BE NEW AND EXCITING AND TALKING ABOUT MOVING PEOPLE ALONG AS WE LOOK AT THIS EXPANSION PROJECT THAT WE’RE SO EXCITED ABOUT OUT AT THE CONVENTION AUTHORITY. NOW, I’D LIKE TO KNOW HOW IS ALL OF THAT GOING TO KIND OF COHABITATE, HOW ARE WE GOING TO FILTER ALL THAT IN AND MAYBE WE CAN SAVE THAT FOR ANOTHER DISCUSSION BECAUSE I HAVE A FEELING MR. MILES YOU’LL BE BACK. SO THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS, MADAM CHAIR. AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. MILES. >> I APPRECIATE YOUR KIND COMMENTS. APPRECIATE THAT. >> THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER JONES AND MR. NAFT. >> MR. MILES I KNOW IN PRIOR DISCUSSION YOU HAD MENTIONED POSSIBLE EXPANSION AS PART OF THIS OR OTHER FINANCING TRANCHES TO GO OUT TO THE AIRPORT TO INCREASE THE RIDERSHIP IS THAT STILL UNDER DISCUSSION. >> JUST DISCUSSIONS AT THIS POINT. WHEN WE GET INTO THE DETAILS OF LOOKING AT EXPANSION OUT TO MCCARRAN, THE VERY FIRST DISCUSSION WE NEED TO HAVE IS WITH THE AIRPORT DIRECTOR TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE NEEDS ARE THERE. HAVING WORKED THERE 11 YEARS, IT’S BEEN ALMOST 20 YEARS SINCE I’VE WORKED THERE. SO I CAN’T ASSUME THAT I UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE THINGS THAT SHE’S UP AGAINST OUT THERE. BUT AS THAT AIRPORT GROWS AND REACHES CAPACITY THE NEEDS CHANGE OVER TIME. THE AIRPORT DIRECTOR AND I HAVE WE GO BACK ALMOST 25 YEARS. SO THERE’S A GOOD RELATIONSHIP THERE. AND AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME WHEN IT’S TIME FOR US TO ACTUALLY HAVE THOSE CONVERSATIONS THAT’S THE FIRST CONVERSATION WE’LL HAVE. COMMISSIONER NAFT AND BROWN. >> THANK YOU I SHARE MY COLLEAGUES AND YOUR OBJECTIVE HERE IN REDUCING CONGESTION. IT’S A VALUABLE AREA WE’RE TALKING ABOUT WE HAVE TO BE SO CAUTIOUS WITH THAT I KNOW HOW MUCH WORK HAS GONE ON IN THIS SUBJECT OVER MANY, MANY YEARS. SOMETHING I’M NOT QUITE GETTING THERE AT AND MAYBE YOU CAN HELP BEAT ME OVER THE HEAD WITH IT A LITTLE BIT MORE CLEARLY. WHAT IS — I UNDERSTAND YOU SAID THE TWO PIECES OF FINANCING HAVE TO BE SEGREGATED, I UNDERSTAND THAT. COUPLE THINGS. I DON’T QUITE GET THE BENEFIT YOU SAID THERE’S A BENEFIT TO THE MONORAIL TO SEPARATING THEM IF YOU CAN EXPLAIN THAT. AND THEN HELP ME UNDERSTAND, I UNDERSTAND NOTHING’S A GUARANTEE. THERE’S NO ASSURANCES BUT IF WE ARE GOING TO MOVE TOWARDS THE DIRECTION OF HELPING WITH THE FINANCING, WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP ME FEEL BETTER ABOUT UNDERSTANDING WHAT ASSURANCES WE DO HAVE THAT THE SECOND PIECE COMES SINCE THAT’S CLEARLY THE LARGER PIECE OF THE PUZZLE HERE AND I THINK THE SPHERE STOP IS IMPORTANT BUT I THINK THE MANNEDLY BAY PIECE HELPS SOLVE A VERY LARGE OR HELPS CONTRIBUTE TO A SOLUTION TO A LARGE PROBLEM WE’RE FACING. >> VERY GOOD QUESTIONS. FIRST TO ADDRESS THE QUESTION ABOUT THE FINANCING AND WHAT BENEFIT IT ACTUALLY PROVIDES TO US, THE RATE THAT THIS PARTICULAR LENDER IS OFFERING IS STILL RELATIVELY CONFIDENTIAL IS A VERY GOOD RATE FOR US GIVEN HOW WE’RE FINANCING THIS PROJECT. THERE’S A TIME LIMIT TO BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE THESE FUNDS TO ACHIEVE WHAT THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT WE’RE TRYING TO HELP THEM MEET THE TIMEFRAME.pOBVIOUSLY T TO DO WITH AS WE GO FORWARD DOWNSTREAM IN TERMS OF CASH FLOWS YEAR AFTER YEAR IN MEETING OUR OBLIGATIONS THAT RATE BECOMES VERY IMPORTANT EVERY BASIS POINT COUNTS. AND TO KNOCK OFF 25, 50, 75 BASIS POINTS OFF OF A LOAN LIKE THIS COULD MEAN SEVERAL HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS OVER THE LIFE OF THE LOAN IF NOT MILLIONS BUT CERTAINLY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN TERMS OF YOUR ANNUAL OBLIGATION. SO THAT’S ONE OF THE ADVANTAGES. ANOTHER ADVANTAGE IS THAT WITH THIS PARTICULAR SOURCE OF FUNDING, THE COVENANTS THAT WE HAVE TO AGREE TO ARE RELATIVELY, THEY’RE MODERATE. WE’RE UNDER A SET OF COVENANTS TODAY THAT ARE VERY RESTRICTIVE. THIS LENDER IS GOING TO PERMIT US TO DO SOME THINGS THAT WOULD ALLOW US TO, THAT WILL FACILITATE US ACTUALLY GROWING THIS SYSTEM IN THE WAY THAT COMMISSIONER JONES SUGGESTED. SO THOSE ARE HUGE ADVANTAGES TO US. I THINK THE SECOND QUESTION WAS RELATED TO THE SEPARATING OF THE TWO FINANCINGS. THIS PARTICULAR LENDER AS I MENTIONED THERE’S A TIMEFRAME WITHIN WHICH WE CAN SECURE THESE FUNDS AND WE STILL HAVE A FEW ITEMS REMAINING FOR US TO COMPLETE AS RELATES TO THE ON AIRPORT PORTION OF THE MANDALAY BAY EXTENSION. THE REST IS COMPLETED. THE RIGHTS AND PROPERTY RIGHT ACCESS AGREEMENTS THOSE ARE ALL HAVE BEEN EXECUTED. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO PURCHASE ONE PIECE OF LAND IT’S ABOUT 11 HUNDRED SQUARE FEET. BUT SHORT OF THAT EVERYTHING ELSE HAS BEEN COMPLETED EXCEPT FOR THAT LAST AIRPORT PIECE. RATHER THAN US DELAY THE ENTIRE FINANCING AND LOSE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SAVE IN OUR CASH FLOW AND REDUCE THE RISK OF THIS FINANCING, WE DECIDED TO SPLIT THE TWO PIECES INTO TWO PARTS AS WE COMPLETE THOSE OTHER AIRPORT >>I DON’T KNOW THAT THERE ARE BUT HAVING SAID THAT IN IT WOULD MY EXPECTATION AND UNDERSTAND THIS CONVERSATION WE ARE HAVING TODAY AND I THINK THEY HEAR IT LOUD AND CLEARY AND FOUR AND A HALF MILLION DOLLAR COMMITMENT COULD BE ACKNOWLEDGED BY THE LENDER AS BEING IS NOT NECESSARILY IN THE WRITING AND HAS TO BE SOMETHING WRITTEN IF WE ARE TO GET PEACE ON THE POINT THAT’S BEING RAISED NOW BUT THE LENDER UNDERSTANDS THAT THE LIKELIHOOD OF DEFAULTED IS FAR LESS IF WE ARE SUPPORTING THE MONORAIL COMPANY THE WAY THAT THEY HAVE ASKED US TO, SO THEIR RISK DECREASES WITH THE PAYMENT BY THE COUNTY, THE FOUR AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS. SO IT SEEMS THAT IT FOLLOWS. DON’T KNOW IF IT CAN FOLLOW BUT IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IT FOLLOWS THAT IF THEY GET THE FURTHER ASSURANCES THAT COME FROM A COMMITMENT BY THE COUNTY, WE OUGHT TO — THEY OUGHT TO BE APPROACHED ABOUT AND IT OUGHT TO BE INSISTED UPON THIS MONEY IS NOT THERE IN THE CASE OF DEFAULT THIS IS NOT COLLATERAL AGAINST WHICH THEY CAN MAKE A CLAIM. IT IS THEIR TO GIVE FURTHER ASSURANCES OF THE MONORAIL COMPANY’S CAPACITY TO PAY THE DEBT AND AVOID DEFAULT, BUT IT IS NOT GIVEN AS THE KIND OF COLLATERAL AGAINST WHICH ACTION COULD BE BROUGHT TO RECOVER IT FROM US. I THINK THAT WE CAN TALK ALL THE WAY AROUND THIS THING BUT WHAT WE ARE REALLY ASKING IS THAT THAT BE THE CASE BECAUSE THE WHOLE QUESTION IS ARE WE GOING TO END UP BEING THE SECURITY OF LAST RESORT SO THE 130 MILLION, SURE, THAT WILL PAY WHOLE 32 MILLION AND WHATEVER INTEREST IS DUE. SO I DON’T KNOW, I MEAN I — THAT THOUGHT CAME TO MY MIND, COMMISSIONER BROWN, AND SEEMS LIKE OUGHT TO BE SOMETHING WE PUT ON THE RECORD TODAY.>>CAN I ADDRESS THAT BRIEFLY?>>I FEEL LIKE WE ARE GETTING WORSE THAN EVER, SO GO AHEAD AND THEN I WANT TO GO TO COMMISSIONER.>>THAT’S EXACTLY THE LINE WE ARE DRAWN AND REFLECTED IN THE DRAFTED DOCUMENTS THAT THERE’S NO RECOVERY –>>RECOURSE BY THE COUNTY LENDER>>WELL –>>I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY OF YOU PAID ATTENTION BUT WE GOT A LOT OF PUSH BACK WHEN MONORAIL COMPANY WENT TO BANKRUPTCY BEFOREY AND PROTECT THE COUNTY WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AND THAT LANGUAGE REJECTED BY THE FINANCE COUPLE COMPANY SO IT IS NOT SAYING YOU CAN’T DO IT BUT IF YOU GO FORWARD WITH THIS, YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT OBLIGATION YOU’RE UNDERTAKING.>>COMMISSIONER?>>JUST BE CLEAR. TALKING ABOUT 4 MILLION BASICALLY COULD BUY A BOND FOR $60 MILLION, EQUIVALENT OF A BOND WHICH WE COULD USE FOR SOMETHING ELSE AND MY REAL CONCERN IS THIS IS ONE PIECE OF AND SPEND HALF BILLION ON DOING INTERCHANGE AND WHAT ELSE WE GOING TO SPEND? SO I THINK WE OUGHT TO LUMP IT ALL TOGETHER AND WE THE COUNTY ARE GOING TO SUBSIDIZE FOR THE STADIUM AND RECOGNIZE SOMETHING WE ARE DOING AND PRIORITIZE IT BUT ULTIMATELY I THINK IT IS A GREAT ASSET FOR LAS VEGAS AND SOMETHING TO DO AND PUT IT OUT THERE IS FANTASTIC, NEED TO DO THAT AND NOT SURE WHY WE ARE DOING THAT AND OPPOSED TO HAVING MGM AND LAS VEGAS AND TAKE TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF RODENT WEAR AND TEAR AND VEHICLES OFF OF ROADS. THERE’S NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE AS COMMISSIONER GIBSON SAID SO IT IS A WIN, WIN FOR US AND REALISTICALLY AND $50 MILLION BOND THAT WE COULD DO FOR SOMETHING ELSE AND INSTEAD WE ARE GOING TO USE TO SUBSIDIZE THE STADIUM.>>MAKING IT WORK, MAKING THE STADIUM WORK.>>CALL A TIMEOUT HERE.>>SIT DOWN, THANK YOU. WE WILL LET –>>BECAUSE STADIUM IS IN THE DISTRICT FROM EVERY SURVEY ANALYSIS I HAVE SEEN THE MONORAIL WHICH I MADE CLEAR TO MR. MILES HERE IS SMALL PIECE OF THE SOLUTION AND STADIUM AND CONVENTION CENTER AND A SOLUTION AND AS FAR AS GETTING PEOPLE TO THE STADIUM IT IS A SMALL PIECE.>>HERE IS WHAT I’M GOING TO SAY , LOOKING FOR DIRECTION AND FEELING LIKE I’M GETTING MIXED SIGNALS IF WE ARE ALLOWED TO SIT DOWN AND HAVE A CONVERSATION AND DIRECT MARION AND YOLANDA AND JESSICA TO SEE IF THEY ARE — — IF WE CAN COME TO SOME KIND OF AGREEMENT OR SOME KIND OF CONVERSATION. I KNOW THAT CLAUSE OF CANCELING ANY TIME I THOUGHT WAS THE BIGGEST HEARTBURN AND LENDERS AGREE THAT WE DON’T WANT TO BE LIABLE OF ANY POINT BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE ON PAPER AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT MAKES SENSE TO SEND YOU ALL TO FIGURE THAT OUT. END OF THE DAY IT STILL HAS TO COME BACK BEFORE THE BOARD. WE STILL HAVE TO HAVE TONS OF OTHER DISCUSSIONS BUT I DON’T KNOW THAT ANY OF US KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE UNTIL IT IS IN LEGAL FORMAT. IS THAT A FAIR STATEMENT? I FEEL NERVOUS BECAUSE FEEL LIKE SAID DON’T DO IT BECAUSE OUGHT TO PROTECT OURSELVES. TRY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS THE BEST RECOURSE.>>I’M NOT SAYING DON’T DO, POLICY DECISION FOR THE BOARD, JUST IF YOU’RE GOING TO DIRECT US TO DO IT, NEED TO KNOW WHAT SORT OF OBLIGATION YOU’RE MAKING ON BEHALF OF THE COUNTY AND DISAGREE WITH MR. MILES ON ABILITY OF EXPOSURE AND I THINK WE HAVE A BIGGER EXPOSURE THAN REPRESENTED.>>RESOLUTION PASSED IN DECEMBER IT IS NOT ON THE BOOKS. IT IS NOT THE COUNTY THAT’S ASKING TO CHANGE IT. IT IS THE MONORAIL AND THAT GROUP. IS IT UNDER THAT PRETEXT THAT IF THEY ARE PROPOSING THE COUNTY WITH NEW PROPOSAL AND DOES THAT GIVE YOU COMFORT LEVEL?>>NO. MADE IT VERY CLEAR AND REPRESENTATIONS HERE THAT THEY NEED IT TO PERSUADE CONCERNS OR FINANCIERS BUT RESOLUTION YOU APPROVED IN DECEMBER WAS CRAFTED VERY CAREFULLY TO AVOID THIRD-PARTY LIABILITY BUT STILL GIVE COMFORT TO LENDERS AS COMMISSIONER GIBSON INDICATED. WHAT THEY HAVE ASKED TO CHANGE IS 180° DIFFERENT. IT IS PERMISSIBLE USE OF THOSE FUNDS BUT OBLIGATION AND MAY IM PACT ABILITY TO SPEND MONEY.>>THAT’S BEEN VERBAL. HAVE WE RECEIVED ANYTHING? HAS YOUR OFFICE RECEIVED ANYTHING OFFICIALLY ASKING FOR NEW RESOLUTION AND AMENDED RESOLUTION.>>DISCUSSIONS AND WHAT LANGUAGE WOULD LOOK LIKE IN A DRAFT AND IT IN AMENDMENT OR RESOLUTION OR EVEN TO THE AGREEMENT SO WE HAVE DISCUSSIONS ABOUT WHAT THE DRAFT COULD LOOK LIKE AND WHAT WOULD BE INCLUDED OR NOT INCLUDED FROM BOTH SIDES. I SAID TO MR. MILES THAT HE NEEDED TO GO AND HE HAD SOME ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS THAT HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR AND REAL DISCUSSIONS BECAUSE THOSE CONDITIONS NEEDED TO EVEN BE TAKEN CARE AND MITIGATION PIECE HE IS WORKING THROUGH.>>MADAM CHAIR?>>COMMISSIONER GIBSON?>>SO DIRECTION TO THE STAFF IN MY MIND WOULD BE THAT YOU UNDER TAKE SOME LEVEL OF DUE DILIGENCE SO THAT THE QUESTIONS OF THAT BEEN ASKED BY MEMBERS OF THIS BOARD RELATED TO THE FINANCIALS OF THE MONORAIL COMPANY FOR THAT MATTER MAY BE SOMETHING SIGNIFICANTLY HELL AND UNDERSTANDING — HELPFUL AND PROJECTS HEARING ABOUT TODAY AND I THINK THERE NEEDS TO BE DUE DILIGENCE AND WALK INTO THIS WITHOUT LOOKING AT THINGS OF THAT BEEN SHARED WITH US AND DOCUMENTS THAT ARE THE SOURCE MATERIAL FOR THE THINGS THAT ARE BEING SHARED WITH US. HAVING SAID THAT IF WE CONDUCTED A TRUE IN DEPTH DUE DILIGENCE ACTIVITY I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG IT WOULD TAKE. SO SOMEONE HAS GOT TO MAKE A DETERMINATION AND LEAVE THAT TO THE STAFF TO MAKE A DETERMINATION HOW DEEP A DIG THAT NEEDS TO BE BUT THAT OUGHT TO BE INCLUDED IN MARCHING ORDERS THAT WE GIVE THE STAFF TODAY AND FOLLOWING THIS MEETING>>OKAY. DOES ANYBODY WANT TO — AT THE END I THINK IT STILL HAS TO COME BACK TO THE BOARD. I THINK THAT THERE’S A DIFFERENT CONVERSATION THAT NEEDS TO BE HAD ON THE EXPECTATION OF THE COUNTY’S ROLE WITHIN — IF ANYTHING WERE TO GO SOUTH. WITHIN THIS VENTURE.>>UNDERSTOOD.>>ANY — ARE PEOPLE OKAY WITH STAFF LOOKING AT IT, CONVERSATION, NOT SURE WE WILL GET THERE AND LOOKING FOR SOME THOUGHTS.>>WELL MY NUMBER ONE CONCERN NOW IS I’M HEARING LEGAL COUNCIL INDICATED THAT WE SHOULD DO NOTHING. WE SHOULD RELY ON THE DECEMBER ‘ 17 RESOLUTION. SO IF THE BOARD FROM POLICY STANDPOINT CHOOSES TO DO SOMETHING AND KEEP THE RESOLUTION IN DECEMBER, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?>>VIABLE AND PART OF THE PUBLIC RECORD THAT THE FINANCIERS CAN LOOK AT AND MAKE CALCULATIONS.>>MAY I ASK THIS QUESTION? WHAT ABOUT THE CANCELLATION — I THINK THERE’S PROBABLY — THERE WOULD HAVE TO BE SOME UN CERTAINTY WITH THE CANCELLATION PIECE AND CANCEL — CAN’T IMAGINE YOU FINANCE KNOWING THAT THAT — THOSE DOLLARS COULD BE UNAVAILABLE AT ANY TIME. I’M ASKING.>>BUDGETING RESTRICTIONS UNDER STATE LAW UNLESS WE GO THROUGH FINANCING THINGS WE HAVE TO HAVE SOME SORTED OF DISCRETION IN THAT MANNER. WE ARE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF FINANCING COMPANIES SO THERE ARE SOME HOOPS GOING THROUGH IF YOU’RE GOING TO GET RID OF CANCELLATION POLICY OR TRY TO CIRCUMVENT THE BUDGET APPROPRIATION LAWS SO THERE’S LEGAL CONCERNS TO DOING EVERYTHING THAT THEY ASK FOR. IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU DON’T WANT TO GO TO THE TWO PARTY AGREEMENT AND THAT EXTENT IT IS POSSIBLE THERE COULD BE DRAFT CHANGES TO THE RESOLUTION TO GIVE — THAT% WOULD GIVE PEOPLE A LITTLE MORE CERTAINTY. STILL RETAIN APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF DISCRETION.>>I THINK I FEEL SOME KIND OF WAY ABOUT THIS AND WANT TO SEE THE THING MOVE FORWARD BUT WE ALSO ARE THE OPINION — OF THE OPINION UNTIL THIS RESOLUTION, THIS DECEMBER RESOLUTION IS ADDRESSED SEEMS LIKE THE NUMBER ONE ISSUE FOR ME AT THIS POINT NOW BECAUSE ALTHOUGH YOU’RE SAYING — I’M NOT SAYING — DO WHAT WANT TO DO BUT TELLING YOU THIS IS WHAT YOU’RE ON THE BOOKS HAVING STATED DECEMBER 2017, RIGHT? SO UNTIL SOUNDS LIKE DO WE HAVE TO PUT SOMETHING BACK ON AGENDA TO ADDRESS THE RESOLUTION IF WE WANT TO SEE CHANGES?>>IF YOU WANT TO SEE CHANGES TO THE RESOLUTION, YOU WOULD HAVE TO COME ON, CHANGES PART OF BACKUP SO PUBLIC CAN SEE WHAT IS ANTICIPATED.>>AS OF TODAY WE ARE TOTALLY GOING AGAINST THE RESOLUTION THAT WE ARE COMMITTED TO IT. WE COMMITTED TO THAT BASED ON CONCERNS THAT WE HAVE WITH PARTICULAR APPLICANT AT THAT PARTICULAR TIME.>>I DON’T KNOW OF ANYTHING THAT HAS BEEN EXPRESSED TODAY THAT WOULD AFFECT THAT RESOLUTION. FROM WHAT I’M HEARING FROM THE BOARD THE RESOLUTION REMAINS IN EFFECT AND FULL FORCE. QUESTION THAT’S BEEN PRESENTED TO YOU IS WOULD YOU CHANGE THAT RESOLUTION INTO TWO PARTY AGREEMENT, TAKE OUT SOME DISCRETION, PUT IN SOME OTHER OBLIGATIONS THAT OBLIGATE THE BOARD FOR 30 YEARS.>>SO WHAT IS — SO DIRECTION SHOULD THE DIRECTION BE BASED ON WHAT YOU’RE SAYING AND WHAT WE ARE SEEING WE WOULD LIKE TO BRING THAT RESOLUTION BACK — DIRECT STAFF TO — NOT REALLY TAKING ANY ACTION TODAY BUT DIRECT STAFF AND ALTERNATIVES AND OPTIONS THAT COULD BE PART OF THE RESOLUTION? I GUESS I’M JUST LOOKING FOR A LITTLE MORE CLARITY MYSELF BECAUSE COUPLE MORE THINGS I THINK WE SHOULD ENTERTAIN OR ALLOW YOU GUYS TO GO LOOK. THERE’S NO GUARANTEES BUT I STRUGGLE WITH US NOT HAVING LOOKING AT TRANSPORTATION AS WHOLE. I WAS THE BIGGEST ANTI-PERSON LAST TIME. I OWNED IT BECAUSE I DID — I WAS UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THE BOND FOLKS WHEN THEY CAME BEFORE US BECAUSE THEY MADE ME NERVOUS BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO PAY IF THINGS GO BACK. IT IS NOT MY GIG. BUT I HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT CAPACITY ON THE STRIP FOR THE LONG-TERM AND I THINK IT IS MANY MODES OF TRANSPORTATION THAT WILL DO IT. THERE’S NOT ONE PIECE OF TRANSPORTATION THAT’S GOING TO DO IT ALL AND JUST WONDERING OUR NEXT STEP EVEN IF WE WANTED TO LOOK AT THE RESOLUTION, DO WE JUST PUT IT BACK ON THE AGENDA — DIRECT STEP PUT IT ON THE NEXT AGENDA AND HAVE A CONVERSATION, DO WE DIRECT STUFF TO LOOK AT SOME OPTIONS BASED ON WHAT COMMISSIONERS ARE ASKING TODAY? I’M GOING TO TRY SOMETHING — GO AHEAD, COMMISSIONER.>>THIS IS MY DIRECTION — AND THIS IS JUST MY DIRECTION — WOULD STAY TRUE TO DECEMBER ’17 RESOLUTION PERIOD AND THEN I WOULD ASK YOU WHAT STEPS ANYONE CAN TAKE OVER THE NEXT WEEKS OR MONTHS TO ADDRESS THAT DIRECTION WOULD IT BE INCUMBENT UPON THE MONORAIL PEOPLE TO APPROACH US IN A DIFFERENT WAY? AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED WE WANT TO HAVE THE MONORAIL BUT SO ADAMANT ABOUT DOING IT ON OUR TERMS AND THAT’S WHAT THE RESOLUTION IN DECEMBER WAS. THAT’S THE COUNTY HELPING ON OUR TERMS. I AGREE WITH YOU THAT I DON’T WANT A LENDER TELLING US WHAT WE HAVE TO DO TO HELP THEM. THAT’S JUST WRONG. BUT THAT WOULD BE MY POLICY DIRECTION. BUT IS WINDOW TO CONTINUE THE DISCUSSION BEYOND TODAY?>>STRENGTHENING TO GIVE COMFORT TO LENDER WITHOUT OBLIGATING THE COUNTYWITH THE BOARD TO CONSIDER.>>WHO’S RESPONSIBILITY WOULD THAT BE? MONORAIL APPROACHING STAFF TO HAVE THAT DISCUSSION –>>BOTH. CLEARLY WE HAVE A GOOD WORKING RELATIONSHIP, THOSE DISCUSSIONS CAN START AT EITHER END?>>I THINK WE HAVE DISCUSSED IT AND WANT TO FIGURE OUT WHO CHICKEN OR EGG GOES FIRST? ANYTHING ELSE? MS. KING? COMMISSIONERS, THAT CONCLUDES THE AGENDA FOR TODAY. WE DON — DON’T HAVE ANY CLOSED DOOR ITEMS AND WE ARE DONE WITH THIS AGENDA.>>SECOND TIME TODAY FOR PUBLIC COMMENT. ANYBODY WISHES TO SPEAK ON PUBLIC COMMENT, COME FORWARD AND SAY YOUR NAME FOR THE RECORD. SEEING NO ONE WE WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC COMMENT AND WE ARE ADJOURNED. >>GOOD MORNING, WE’RE GOING TO CALL BACK TO ORDER THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONER’S MEETING FOR MAY 8th, 2019. >>GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS, THE FIRST ITEM ON THE AGENDA IS PUBLIC COMMENTS.

STAFF INITIALLY RECOMMENDED APPROVAL OF OUR APPLICATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF WAIVERS 8 AND 9. THESE WAIVERS WERE BASICALLY PUBLIC WORKS ISSUES. SINCE THE STAFF REPORT WAS WRITTEN, THE APPLICANT WORKED WITH PUBLIC WORKS AND WE BELIEVE THERE ARE NO LONGER ANY ISSUES. MR. DEMANI WOULD LIKE TO MAKE THE PRESENTATION. HE’S ALSO GOING TO SHOW A VIDEO THAT WILL BE LESS THAN THREE MINUTES. AND WITH THAT, I’LL TURN THE MICROPHONE OVER TO MR. DUMANI. >>GOOD MORNING. FROM HERE, BASICALLY, MY WHOLE LIFE, GREW UP HERE, WENT TO GRADE SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL, GORMAN UNLV FOR A YEAR. AND THROUGHOUT MY OVER 50 YEARS HERE, I’VE SEEN LAS VEGAS GROW TREMENDOUSLY. FROM 200,000 PEOPLE. WHEN I WAS GROWING UP TO OVER 2 MILLION PEOPLE NOW. AND LOTS OF CHANGE OVER THE YEARS. EVERYTHING WE’VE GOT ALL OF THESE BEAUTIFUL MEGA RESORTS, 4,000 PLUS ROOMS AND EVERYTHING IS WONDERFUL. WHAT I’M LOOKING TO DO IS REALLY A THROWBACK PROJECT. WE’RE PROPOSING 720 ALL SUITE, NONGAMING, NONMEGARESORT. SOMETHING INTIMATE, CLASSY, ELEGANT THAT WILL APPEAL TO A DIFFERENT SEGMENT OF THE POPULATION. PEOPLE THAT WANT TO COME HERE FOR CONVENTIONS AND FOR OTHER REASONS OTHER THAN JUST TO GAMBLE. WE’RE LOOKING AT HAVING A BRANDED FIVE-STAR HOTEL WITH SIX WORLD CLASS RESTAURANTS. IT’LL BE FREE STANDING RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE CONVENTION CENTER. SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO TREK THROUGH A HOTEL AND SLOT MACHINES I DON’T RECOLLECTS UH EASY ACCESS PARKING WHERE YOU DON’T HAVE TO WAIT A HALF AN HOUR FOR YOUR CAR. THIS IS NEEDED IN AN ERA OF MEGARESORTS. THE OTHER THING WE’RE LOOKING AT DOING IS A MEDICAL SPA. WHERE YOU COME IN, THEY CHECK YOUR BODY OUT, THEY DESIGN A NUTRITION PROGRAM, A HEALTH PROGRAM, AND EVERYTHING FOR YOU ONE-STOP KIND OF MEDICAL NEEDS. IT’S MEDICAL TOURISM IS ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING AREAS, REALLY, IN THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY WITH THE PHYSICALS AND SO FORTH. I THINK THERE’S A NEED TO HAVE ALL OF THEM UNDER ONE ROOF. AND WHY NOT MAKE LAS VEGAS A LEADER IN THIS WORLD? IT’S NOT UNDER ALL UNDER ONE ROOF ANYWHERE OTHER THAN NEW YORK. ANOTHER COMPONENT OF THIS PROJECT IS GOING TO BE WHAT WE’RE CALLING CORPORATE SKY SUITES. WHAT THE WORLD TRADE CENTER IS FOR FURNITURE, WE WANT TO BE FOR TECH. ATTRACT THE FINEST TECH FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD TO HAVE PERMANENT SUITES AND OFFICES HERE HOLD MEETINGS, MAKE ANNOUNCEMENTS. AND I THINK THAT COULD BE A GREAT THING FOR DIVERSIFICATION IN LAS VEGAS. WE’VE GOT HOCKEY, WHICH HAS BEEN GREAT. WE CAN DO HOCKEY AND THE NFL HERE, WHY NOT MEDICAL AND TECH? I THINK IT’S SOMETHING THAT CAN REALLY HELP TO DIVERSIFY EVERYTHING. WE’VE GOT A GREAT HISTORY HERE IN LAS VEGAS. AND I THINK OUR FUTURE CAN BE EVEN BETTER. SO WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING FURTHER, I THINK WE WANT TO ROLL THIS VIDEO AND KIND OF SHOWS EVERYTHING THAT I’VE JUST SPOKEN ABOUT. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. >>I HOPE THAT GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT WE’RE ATTEMPTING TO DO. I WANT TO THANK YOU PAUL STEALMAN, THE ARCHITECTS THAT WORKED WITH PAUL FOR 25 YEARS ON VARIOUS THINGS. I’M VERY PROUD OF THE JOB THEY’VE DONE. AND I THINK THIS COULD BE A REALLY GOOD KIND OF ADDITION TO LAS VEGAS COMMUNITY AND REALLY HELP THE CONVENTION CENTER AREA AND EVERYTHING CAN WORK IN CONJUNCTION AS A WHOLE. >>THANK YOU. DO I, COMMISSIONER, I THINK THERE’S A FEW QUESTIONS. DO YOU WANT TO? ANYBODY WANT TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS? I’LL ASK THEM. COMMISSIONER WEAKLEY. >>I GUESS, I THINK IT’S GREAT. RIGHT? I THINK THAT MEDICAL TOURISM IS SOMETHING WE’VE TALKED ABOUT FOR AT LEAST 20 YEARS IN THIS TOWN. I’M JUST WONDERING HOW IT WORKS WITH WHAT, IS THERE STATE LICENSING? A PROCESS TO GO IN? BECAUSE DAY SPA IN MY MIND MEANS ONE THING, BUT I TEND TO THINK YOU’RE GOING TO DO SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT HIGHER END. >>THAT’S A VERY GOOD QUESTION. THE SPA IS FOUR DIFFERENT LEVELS. SO THERE’S A LEVEL WHERE YOU ENTER WHICH WILL HAVE, LIKE A RETAIL COMPONENT, BEAUTY COMPONENT, SO ON AND SO FORTH. THE SECOND LEVEL IS MEDICAL LEVEL, WHICH IS BASICALLY EXECUTIVE PHYSICALS. THEY PUT YOU IN A SCANNER AND THAT WILL BE IN CONJUNCTION WITH A, LIKE, A MAYO CLINIC, UCLA, STANFORD, WE WILL BRING IN. >>DID YOU SAY UMC? UMC, TOO? >>I’M SORRY? >>DID YOU SAY YOU’RE GOING TO WORK WITH UMC, TOO? >>YES, ABSOLUTELY. YES, I DID. THERE’LL BE THAT COMPONENT TO IT FOR THE MEDICAL. WE’LL BRING IN A MAJOR PARTNER WITH THAT. AND WITH THE NUTRITION, WE’LL BRING IN, IT’S BASICALLY FOUR SEPARATE THINGS COMBINED UNDER ONE ROOF. >>OKAY. THAT ANSWERS MY QUESTION. >>THAT WAS SOMETHING I WANTED TO HEAR IN TERMS OF MEDICAL CREDENTIALING. ARE THOSE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE VARIOUS LEVELS? >>RIGHT. >>OKAY. AND HAVE YOU, HAVE YOU HAD THOSE CONVERSATIONS YET FROM A STATE LEVEL IN TERMS OF CRED CREDENTIALING? WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT, I THINK, YOU MENTIONED RETAIL AND MEDICAL, GIVE ME AN IDEA OF OTHER THAN THE SCANNING, WHAT ELSE IS IT YOU PROVIDE HERE AT THE MED SPA? >>BASICALLY, YOU GO IN AND THEY HAVE THE EXECUTIVE PHYSICALS. AND THEY DETERMINE WHAT’S THE BEST DIET AND NUTRITION FOR YOU. IT’S NOT LIKE ONE-SIZE-FITS ALL. SOMETIMES THEY SAY, CUT THE SUGAR, CUT THE CARBS, GO GLUTEN FREE, WHATEVER IT MAY BE. FROM BASICALLY, A BLOOD SAMPLE AND A BODY SCAN, THEY DESIGN A WHOLE NUTRITIONAL PLAN FOR YOU AND YOUR BODY TYPE SPECIFICALLY. SO THAT’S ONE ASPECT IS THE NUTRITION AND THE DIET. THEY MAKE, IT’S KIND OF LIKE A RECIPE FOR LIFE. YOUR DIET SHOULD BE THIS. THEY’LL DO IT, THERE’LL BE CHEFS THAT SHOW HOW TO PREPARE IT, WRITE OUT THE RECIPES THAT ARE RIGHT FOR YOUR BODY TYPE AND YOUR NUTRITION NEEDS. THAT’S THE ONE COMPONENT. THE SECOND COMPONENT IS THE FITNESS. THEY’LL DESIGN A WORKOUT PLAN BY DETERMINED BY YOUR AGE, YOUR PHYSICAL ABILITIES, EVERYTHING. PEOPLE NEED MORE CARDIO, TREADMILL. OTHER PEOPLE MIGHT BE WEIGHTS, OTHERS MIGHT BE PILATES AND YOGA. THERE’LL BE THE NUTRITIONAL, THE HEALTH AND THE BEAUTY COMPONENT IS GOING TO BE NONIN NONINVASIVE. ALL NATURAL. >>THAT’S WHERE I WAS GOING NEXT. >>ABSOLUTELY NOT. THIS IS, WE WANT TO BE NATURAL AND MAKE PEOPLE BETTER. NO OFFENSE TO ANYBODY THAT’S HAD BOTOX. THAT GOES AGAINST EVERYTHING. WE’RE TRYING TO BE ORGANIC AND ZEN-LIKE. AND WE WANT TO BE ALMOST EARTHY AND SOMETHING THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME. AND TO ME, PUTTING POISON IN YOUR FACE FLIES AGAINST WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO ACHIEVE. >>THIS IS A SENSITIVE CORRIDOR, WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT WHAT’S BEING PROPOSED IN THIS AREA HERE. WE DEFINITELY WANT TO MAKE SURE WHATEVER IT IS THAT COMES BEFORE US THAT’S LOOKING TO COME IN AND CAPTURE WHAT’S GETTING READY TO UNVEIL, THAT’S SOMETHING NOT ONLY COMPATIBLE BUT SOMETHING THAT MANY OF OUR LOCALS, AS WELL AS OUR TOURISTS WOULD BE ABLE TO BENEFIT FROM AS THEY COME INTO OUR CITY. >>ABSOLUTELY. I SHARE YOUR CONCERNS AND I COULDN’T AGREE WITH YOU MORE. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE PRESENTATION. >>YOU’RE WELCOME. >>THANK YOU, DOES ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? >>JUST SINCE THERE’S NO GAMING, OBVIOUSLY, WE CAN HAVE A MARIJUANA COMPONENT, TOO. THAT’S DOWN THE ROAD. >>YOU MAY AS WELL INJECT THE POISON. >>THAT’S ALL NATURAL, NO POISON. >>ANYWAY, IT IS FANTASTIC. I’M SURE YOU’RE ALL JEALOUS THIS IS IN DISTRICT E. IT’S REALLY BEAUTIFUL AND ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE NEW CONVENTION CENTER. AND I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. VERY EXCITED. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH, COMMISSIONER. >>OKAY. WAS THAT A MOTION? >>I’D GO AHEAD AND MAKE A MOTION, THEN. >>CAN WE OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING? >>OKAY. THIS IS A PUBLIC. >>IT’S ORGANIC, ISN’T IT? >>NO, STOP TALKING. THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING. I’M GOING TO OPEN UP THE PUBLIC HEARING. ANYBODY WISHING TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? PLEASE COME FORWARD NOW. SEEING NO ONE, I’M GOING TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND COMMISSIONER, YOUR MOTION WAS TO APPROVE. >>OKAY. THERE’S A MOTION ON THE FLOOR. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION, PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTES. MOTION PASSES. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >>MR. DUMINI, THE PROPERTY ON LAS VEGAS BOULEVARD, HE SOLD THAT FOR A SUBSTANTIAL SUM OF MONEY AND ALREADY HEAVILY INVESTED IN THIS AND THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN. >>YES, I AM. WE HAD THE PROPERTY SOLD TO TRIPLE 5, WE’VE REDONE THE LEASE AND I’M GOING TO KEEP THEM THERE AS LONG AS THEY WANT TO BE THERE. VERY PROUD. HOPEFULLY, THIS WILL BE, TOO. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >>THANK YOU. >>THE NEXT ARE ITEM 30 AND 31. USE PERMITS FOR THE FOLLOWING. HORSE RIDING, RENTAL STABLE, PREVIOUS LIP KNOWN AS THE COMMERCIAL HORSE STABLE. ALLOW AN ACCESSORY AGRICULTURAL BUILDING IN THE FRONT YARD PREVIOUSLY NOT NOTIFIED AND WAVE THE REQUIRED TREES ALONG ALL SIDES AND PROPERTY LINES. INCREASE SUCCESS RATE STRUCTURE HEIGHT, DESIGNED FOR RESIDENTIAL BOARDING AND HORSE RIDING RENTAL STABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH A SINGLE-FAMILY RES DANCE RESIDENCE. GENERALLY LOCATED ON THE WEST SIDE OF COAT ROAD. WS19215 WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS, PARTIAL PAVING GUTTER SIDEWALK AND STREET LIGHTS IN CONJUNCTION WITH A SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENCE. >>GOOD MORNING. >>GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS, CHRIS ARMSTRONG, 8521 COAT AVENUE. JUST A LITTLE BIT OF A BACKGROUND. THIS WAS AN APPLICATION THAT CAME BEFORE THE PREVIOUS COMMISSION, SOME OF YOU ARE STILL HERE, OBVIOUSLY, A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, WE CAME THROUGH, IT’S CLOSE TO THE 159, 160 JUNCTION. WE REZONED PROPERTY TO ROE AND AT THAT TIME WE COMMITTED TO DEVELOPING A SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL ESQUSTRIAN TYPE FACILITY. RICK AND ROCHELLE HAVE COMPLETED CONSTRUCTION ON THEIR HOUSE, THE NEXT PHASE IS THE ESQUSTRIAN COMPONENT. THE USE PERMIT FOR THE RENTAL STABLE AND THE RIDING FACILITY IS ACTUALLY FOR A NONPROFIT USE. FOR VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE AND ROCHELLE WILL BE GUIDING THAT. AND THERE’S NO EXCHANGE OF MONEY. IT’S SIMPLY A NONPROFIT. THAT’S THE REASON FOR THE HORSE RIDING AND RENTAL PORTION. THE REQUESTS FOR THE WAIVER FOR THE INCREASED HEIGHT. I DON’T KNOW IF WE CAN — WE WANT SHADE AND THE WIDTH OF IT NECESSITATES THE INCREASED HEIGHT. THAT’S WHAT THE WAIVER FOR THE HEIGHT IS. WITH RESPECT TO THE WAIVER FOR THE OFF-SITES, WE’VE BEEN WORKING WITH PUBLIC WORKS STAFF AND IN THE PROCESS OF DESIGNING THAT ROAD AND POSTING BONDS FOR THAT ROAD. WE’RE REQUESTING RULE OF STANDARDS WHICH COMPLIES WITH WHAT IS OUT THERE NOW WHEN WE DEVELOP THE RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY. THEY’LL BE BUILT WITH THE HALF-ACRE LOTS. AND I BELIEVE THAT’S IT. AND WE APPRECIATE BOB MATTHEWS WAS HERE EARLIER ON TALKING ABOUT THE TWO ITEMS. BOB’S BEEN GREAT TO WORK WITH. WE APPRECIATE HIS INPUT. AND BRINGING SOMETHING TO THIS PART OF THE COMMUNITY, I THINK THAT ADDS A LOT OF VALUE. SO ONE COMMENT ON JUST ON THE USE PERMIT, THERE WAS A CONDITION THAT SAID FOR PUBLIC WORKS TO PROVIDE FULL OFFSITES. COMPLETING THE DESIGN WORK AND POSTING THE BOND THAT IS NO LONGER NECESSARY BUT WE AGREE WITH STAFF CONDITIONS. >>OKAY, THIS IS A PUBLIC. DOES THAT COMPLETE YOUR PRESENTATION? >>THAT COMPLETES MY PRESENTATION. >>THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING, I’M GOING TO OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING ON ITEMS 30 AND 31. ANYBODY WISHING TO SPEAK ON THESE ITEMS, COME FORWARD. SEEING NO ONE, I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND TURN IT OVER TO COMMISSIONER JONES. >>THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR. JUST TO CLARIFY, SO THE, ON 31, THE WAIVER FOR FULL OFF-SITES IS WITHDRAWN? OR UNNECESSARY? I WANT TO MAKE SURE I GET MY MOTION RIGHT. >>THEY HELD ITEM 30 TO COME BACK WITH THIS WAIVER, ITEM 31 FOR FULL OFFSITES AND WE HAVE OUR STANDARD DENIAL FOR FULL OFFSITES EXCEPT FOR PARTIAL PAVING. WE KNOW THE GENERAL AREA HAS NO OFF-SITES. >>OKAY. I’LL MOVE FOR APPROVAL OF ITEMS 30 AND 31 SUBJECT TO MR. ARMSTRONG’S STATEMENT WITH REGARDS TO ITEM NUMBER 31. >>OKAY. YES, GOOD. YOU’VE HEARD THE MOTION. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? SEEING NONE, PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTES. MOTION PASSES. >>THE PREVIOUS ITEM WAS IMPRESSIVE TO SEE THE TECHNOLOGY AND EVERYTHING RELATED TO THAT AND HOW GREAT A VALUE WE LIVE TO HAVE SOMETHING AS HIGH-TECH AND INNOVATIVE AS THAT PROJECT. SO PROUD TO BE A RESIDENT. THANK YOU. >>GLAD TO HAVE YOU. >>NEXT IS ITEM 33. UC19156 PERMIT FOR PINBALL MUSEUM. INCREASE FREE STANDING SIGN AREA, INCREASED WALL SIGN AREA, INCREASED AVERAGE LETTER HEIGHT FOR A WALL SIGN, INCREASED NUMBER OF ANIMATED SIGNS, ALTERNATIVE STREET LANDSCAPING, ALLOWING NONSTANDARD APPROVAL AND REDUCE ROAD DEPTH. A MUSEUM OF AN ACCESSORY ARCADE, ALTERNATIVE PARKING, INCREASED FREE STANDING SIGN HEIGHT, SIGN AREA, ON 1.8 ACRES. ON THE EAST SIDE, 375 SOUTH OF RUSSELL ROAD ALIGNMENT. PUBLIC WORKS WOULD LIKE TO ADD ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS. PRO REVISED PLANS STATED 5319 WHICH INCLUDES ■THE CURRENT CONFIGURATION AND FUTURE CONFIGURATION, DRIVEWAY WIDTH TO BE 32 FEET LIP TO LIP, RESERVATION IN PLACE OF THE DEDICATION OF RIGHT OF WAY NORTH OF THE DRIVEWAY WHERE THE SIGN IS LOCATED TO BE APPROVED BY PUBLIC WORKS DEVELOPMENT. IN ADDITION, COMMISSIONERS, FOR YOUR INFORMATION, WHEN IN THE FUTURE THE RIGHT OF WAY IS, THERE’LL BE A REDUCTION IN PARKING AND I WANT TO PUT ON THE RECORD THIS APPROVAL ALLOWS FOR THE ADDITIONAL REDUCTION IN PARKING. SO THAT’S WHY WE ARE MAKING THE APPROVAL PER THE REVISED PLAN FOR TODAY’S CONFIGURATION AND THE FUTURE CONFI CONFIGURATION. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. GOOD MORNING. >>HELLO. I’M FOR A NOT FOR PROFIT SOCIAL CLUB DEDICATED TO THE PRESERVATION OF PINBALL. I’M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO THE ARCHITECT GEORGE. >>MY NAME IS GEORGE RODGERS ARCHITECT, REPRESENTING TIM. THIS IS A FABULOUS FACILITY FOR LAS VEGAS. IT HAS BEEN OVER THE YEARS AND I’VE BEEN REALLY HAPPY TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH IT. THIS SITE IS ON LAS VEGAS BOULEVARD JUST NORTH OF THE HARLEY DAVIDSON SITE. AND WE APPRECIATE STAFF’S RECOMMENDATIONS AND THE TOWN BOARD’S RECOMMENDATIONS. AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT PUBLIC WORKS, WE HAD TO WORK THROUGH A FEW THINGS RIGHT DOWN TO THE LAST HOUR. PUBLIC WORKS ASKED ME TO PRESENT THE TWO SITE PLANS BEFORE THE RIGHT OF WAY GETS EXPANDED AND THE AFTER THE RIGHT OF WAY GETS EXPANDED FOR YOUR BENEFIT. AND YOU KNOW, THIS SITE, AS NANCY SAID, THIS SIDE OF THE ROAD HAPPENS UP AND DOWN ON ALL OF THE SITES, ON ALL OF THE EAST SIDE CASINO RESORT SITES ALL THE WAY SOUTH. SO WE’RE NOT A UNIQUE, THIS IS NOT UNIQUE CONDITION, BUT ONE THAT IS VERY COMMON TO ALL OF THE FACILITIES THAT DEVELOP ON THE EAST SIDE OF LAS VEGAS BOULEVARD. SO THIS IS THE BEFORE. THERE’S A CONTROL LINE FOR LAS VEGAS BOULEVARD AND THE PARKING IS COMPLIANT WITH THE ORDINANCE AND THE SIZE OF THE BUILDING. THE ISSUE IS THE THROAT DEPTH OF THE DRIVEWAY RIGHT HERE. WE’RE ASKING FOR A REDUCTION. IT’S NOT EXACTLY CLEAR IN THE RTC PLATES THAT PUBLIC WORKS USES. HOWEVER, IT’S EITHER A 55 OR 70-FOOT THROAT DEPTH THAT’S REQUIRED AND WE’RE REQUIRING SOMETHING LESS. THE ISSUE IS TO GET THE CARS SAFELY OFF OF LAS VEGAS BOULEVARD BUT THE THROAT DEPTH IS MEASURED TO THE END OF THE DRIVEWAY, THERE’S STILL ANOTHER 25 FEET, WHICH IS A WHOLE CAR LENGTH THAT ADDS TO THAT. IN ANY CASE, BECAUSE WE’RE GOING WITH A ONE-WAY PHOTOGRAPHIC CONDITION, THE CARS ACTUALLY CAN COME AROUND AND CAN STACK QUITE MORE. AND THE PLAY THAT PUBLICS WORKS CHOOSES DOESN’T HAVE A DYNAMIC FORMULA FOR A CURVING THROAT DEPTH OR OTHER CONDITIONS OF THROAT DEPTH. IT’S KIND OF A VERY SIMPLETON WAY OF DETERMINING THROAT DEPTH. NEVERTHELESS, WHEN THE COUNTY TAKES THE REST OF THE RIGHT OF WAY, WHICH IS THIS PORTION HERE AND THAT’S UP FOR DISCUSSION. THAT COULD BE, YOU COULD EXPAND LAS VEGAS BOULEVARD IN THE FUTURE IN 50 YEARS, 100 YEARS OR 500 YEARS FOR ALL I KNOW. AND CARS MAY NOT BE THE PRIMARY TRANSPORTATION DEVICE AT THE TIME. I DON’T KNOW IF THROAT DEPTH 1K7 PARKING IS A BIG ISSUE WHEN IT HAPPENS. NEVERTHELESS, WHEN THAT’S TAKEN, THE THROAT DEPTH GETS SMALLER BY NINE SPACES. AND AS SUCH, WE’VE AGREED TO MANAGE THESE TWO PARKING SPACES AND THESE FOUR, PRIMARILY FOR EMPLOYEES WHICH WILL HAVE FEWER TRIPS IN AND OUT OF THE PARKING SPACE AND CAUSE LESS OF A CONGESTION IN THIS ONE-WAY SYSTEM. WE THINK BECAUSE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION AND ALL OF THE THINGS IN THE NEXT 50 TO 100 YEARS, A REDUCTION OF NINE SPACES IS PROBABLY APPROPRIATE, MAYBE EVEN MORE THAN THAT. IN ANY CASE, IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, I CAN ANSWER THEM, PUBLIC WORKS IS AVAILABLE TO ANSWER THEM BECAUSE WE’VE REVIEWED THIS WITH THEM. AND THAT’S MY PRESENTATION. AND I COULD ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE. >>THANK YOU. THAT COMPLETES YOUR PRESENTATION. LET ME OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING TO SEE IF THERE’S COMMENTS OR CONCERNS ON ITEM NUMBER 33. ANYBODY WISHING TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? SEEING NONE, I’M GOING TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD AND TURN IT OVER TO COMMISSIONER GIBSON. >>THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR. REALLY APPRECIATE THE END OF ALL OF THE BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN MR. RODGERS AND PUBLIC WORKS STAFF. WITH MY STAFF INVOLVED, MR. ARNOLD HAS DEVOTED HIS LIFE TO THE PINBALL MUSEUM, HE’S FINALLY ABLE TO BRING IT OUT TO LAS VEGAS BOULEVARD. THIS IS, I THINK, A COOL ADDITION TO THE STRIP. YOU’LL RECALL HE OPERATES THIS NOT FOR PROFIT. WE RECOGNIZED HIM A YEAR AGO OR SO FOR THE CONTRIBUTIONS HE MAKES FROM THE RESOURCES THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO HIM THROUGH THE MUSEUM. HOW MANY MACHINES HAVE YOU GOT UP RIGHT NOW? >>WE’RE AT 250 NOW. WE’RE PLANNING TO AT LEAST DOUBLE THAT. PART OF THAT IS WE WANT TO SPREAD THEM OUT A LITTLE BIT MORE AND GIVE A NICER PRESENTATION TO THE PUBLIC. >>SO YOU HAVE AS MANY, POTENTIALLY, AS 500 PINBALL MACHINES? >>YES, I’VE GOT 1,100 WAITING. SO I’LL HAVE A BACK COLLECTION. >>IF YOU HAVEN’T BEEN TO THE PINBALL MUSEUM, YOU NEED TO GO. I’M VERY PLEASED TO BE ABLE TO RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF THE TEMPER ITEM PER THE REVISED PLANS. THOSE PLANS SHOW THE CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES AS SHOWN IN THE MAP THAT MR. RODGERS SHARED WITH US AND THE FUTURE. AND IT’S IMPORTANT FOR US TO NOTE WHAT NANCY MEASURED A MOMENT AGO ABOUT THE EFFECT OF THE RIGHT-OF-WAY ON THE PARKING AND SIGNAGE AND ALL THE REST OF IT ON THE SITE. I MOVE APPROVAL AND ENCOURAGE US ALL TO GO OVER AND SEE THE PINBALL MUSEUM AND WATCH THIS GO OUT. >>OKAY. COMMISSIONER GIBSON HAS MADE A MOTION TO RECOMMENDATION. THE COMMISSIONER WEAKLY HAS A QUESTION OR COMMENT. >>I WANT TO SAY, MR. ARNOLD. I’M EXCITED FOR YOU AND HONORED TO CAST THIS VOTE IN SUPPORT. FOR ALL OF YOU THROWBACK FOLKS LIKE ME, THIS MAN HAS EVERYTHING FROM CHECK THIS OUT, LARRY BROWN, EVERYTHING FROM PACMAN TO THE BEST PINBALL MACHINES AND THIS WAS A COOL ONE RIGHT HERE, CENTIPEDE. HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW ABOUT CENTIPEDE? AND THIS WAS THE ONE THAT WAS REALLY SPACE INV INVADERS. I’M EXCITED, I THINK THIS IS ANOTHER PLACE FOR FAMILIES TO BE ABLE TO COME AND HANG OUT. SOMEBODY THAT’S OUT THERE TRYING TO COMPETE WITH YOU. BUT THEY DO IT FOR ADULT. AND THAT’S BOURBON STREET PLACE. THEY’RE LIKE THE DOTTIES AND PAY DAY LOANS, POPPING UP ON EVERY CORNER. YOU’RE SO COOL, MAN, YOU’RE ACCESSIBLE, YOU GET OUT THERE. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE GAMES, YOU’RE OUT THERE AND GET IT STRAIGHTENED OUT AND IT’S A GOOD TIME. I’M EXCITED FOR YOU, FOR THIS PROJECT AND WISH YOU ALL THE BEST OF LUCK. AND THANK OU FOR BEING A GOOD CITIZEN HERE IN CLARKE COUNTY. >>THANKS, ANYBODY ELSE WANT TO MAKE COMMENTS? SEEING NONE, PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTES. MOTION PASSES. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. >>NEXT OUR ITEMS 38 AND 39. ITEM 38, WS190132. REDUCE SETBACKS, REDUCTION OFRSECTION FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT, INCREASE FINISH GRADE, MULTIPLE FAMILY RESIDENT DISTRICT ZONE. GENERALLY LOCATED ON THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF SANDY LANE BOULEVARD. ITEM 39, TM1950042. CONSISTING OF 32 SINGLE FAMILY LOTS ON 3.4 ACRES. >>GOOD MORNING. >>GOOD MORNING, MADAME CHAIR, COMMISSIONERS. I’M HERE REPRESENTING IN THIS MATTER ASPECT HOMES. THE MAIN PRINCIPAL IS MICKEY STRANTON. THIS IS A CLASSIC INFILL PIECE OF PROPERTY. IT’S LOCATED. WE HAVE SANDY LANE LOCATED HERE TO THE WEST. THE SOUTH IS LAKE MEADE AND TO THE NORTH OF US IS A SIMILAR EXISTING SINGLE-FAMILY DEVELOPMENT. THIS PROPERTY, AS YOU CAN SEE HERE, IT HAS MANY CONSTRAINTS ON THE PROPERTY ITSELF, IT WAS ABOUT 3.4 ACRES IN SIZE. THE PROPERTY HERE, AS I’M SHOWING YOU ON THE ZONING MAP IS CURRENTLY ZONED FOR R3 ZONING WHICH ALLOWS UP TO 18 DWELLING UNITS AN ACRE. WHAT WE ARE PROPOSING HERE ON THE SITE PLAN ITSELF, IS SINGLE-FAMILY DETACH HOMES, APPROXIMATELY 33 HOMES HERE, WHICH IS THE DENSITY, WHICH IS ACTUALLY HALF OF WHAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY BUILD ON THE PROPERTY ITSELF. WHAT WE BELIEVE IS THIS IS A GREAT AMENITY IN A GREAT INFILL TYPE OF SINGLE FAMILY DETACH HOME PRODUCT THAT MR. STRATTON IS BRINGING TO THE COMMUNITY. AS I CAN SHOW YOU HERE, WITH RESPECT TO THERE’S A COUPLE OF WAIVERS THAT WE CAME IN WITH THAT WE WITHDREW AT THE TOWN BOARD, WHICH IS ITEMS, WAIVER DEVELOPMENT STANDARD NUMBER THREE. AND WAIVER DEVELOPMENT STANDARD NUMBER FOUR. SO THOSE TWO WAIVER DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS WE WOULD WITHDRAW THOSE WITHOUT PREJUDICE. WITH RESPECT TO THE WAIVER DEVELOPMENT STANDARD OF NUMBER ONE AND NUMBER TWO, I’LL GO THROUGH NUMBER TWO. A REDUCE SETBACK OF 15 FEET, 10 FEET. NOT ALL OF THE LOTS ARE GOING TO REQUIRE THE REAR YARD SETBACK TO BE 10 FEET. AS A MATTER OF FACT, WE HAVE ABOUT TEN HOMES OR TEN LOTS AS I SHOW YOU THAT WILL NOT REQUIRE THAT REAR YARD SETBACK OF 10 FEET. THE REMAINING LOTS THAT WE HAVE HERE MAY REQUIRE THE 10 FEET. THREE OF THE FIVE PRODUCTS OF WHAT HE’S PROPOSING THAT MAY GET TO 10-FOOT REAR YARDS WHERE 15 IS REQUIRED. ALTHOUGH, WE WERE ASKING FOR 10-FOOT REAR YARD SETBACK, IT DOES, WILL NOT APPLY TO ALL OF THE LOTS ITSELF. WITH RESPECT TO THE WAIVER ON LIKE LAKE MEADE ITSELF ON LANDSCAPING, REQUIRED 15-FOOT LANDSCAPE ON THE PERIMETER. IF YOU’RE FAMILIAR WITH THE AREA HERE, SOME AREAS DON’T HAVE LANDSCAPE. THERE ARE SOME AREAS THAT HAVE LITTLE LANDSCAPE OR ROCK IN THE AREA. WHAT WE’RE PROPOSING TO DO IS COME IN WITH A 10-FEET OF LANDSCAPING INSTEAD OF THE 15 FEET. AND FINALLY, WE HAVE SEPARATION FROM THE INTERCHANGE WAIVER DEVELOPMENTS STANDARDS. MADE CHANGES TO THE SITE PLAN. WE HAVE IT COMING OFF OF SANDY. AND WE ALSO HAVE IT COMING OFF CAMEL. AND BY DOING SO, WE BELIEVE IT CREATES A BETTER CIRCULATION WITHIN THE AREA ITSELF. AND THIS TYPE OF WAIVER DEVELOPMENT STANDARD WAS JUST APPROVED ON TWO PROJECTS TO THE SOUTH HERE THAT ARE ALREADY EXISTING. WE BELIEVE THIS PRODUCT DEFINITELY COMPLEMENTS THE AREA. AS I SAID, WHEN YOU COME IN WITH THE INFILL PROPERTIES, YOU HAVE THE TYPE OF WAIVER DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS BECAUSE YOU HAVE A LOT OF CONSTRAINTS AND THE CONSTRAINTS JUST POINTED OUT TO YOU ON THE 3.4 ACRE PIECE OF PROPERTY. AND YOUR TOWN BOARD DID REVIEW THIS APPLICATION, THEY DID SUPPORT THIS. WITH THE APPLICATION. WITH THAT BEING SAID, I’D ASK YOU TO FOLLOW THE TOWN BOARD’S RECOMMENDATIONS AND OUR REQUESTS FOR THE APPLICATION THAT’S HERE. >>OKAY. DOES THAT COMPLETE YOUR PRESENTATION? >>YES, MA’AM. >>JUST CHECKING. THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING, I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING ON ITEM NUMBER 38. ANYBODY WISHING TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? SEEING NO ONE, I’M GOING TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND TURN IT OVER TO COMMISSIONER WEAKLY. >>THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR. I KNOW WHEN I SAW THE PLANS, I WASN’T EXCITED ABOUT WHAT I WAS LOOKING AT AND STAFF SHARED SOME CONCERNS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR WORKING WITH US. THANK YOU TO MR. STRATTON FOR HEARING OUR CONCERNS IN REFERENCE TO SEVERAL OF THE WAIVERS THAT WERE BEING PRESENTED TO US AS WELL AS THAT INGRESS AND EGRESS OFF OF LAKE MEADE. GLAD TO SEE WE WERE ABLE TO WORK THAT OUT, AS WELL. WHAT WE’RE LOOKING AT HERE AS FAR AS THOSE LANDSCAPING BUFFERS THERE, IN THE BEGINNING, THEY DIDN’T EXIST. THEY WEREN’T THERE. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ADHERING TO THAT. AND I’D LIKE TO REFER OVER TO STAFF. AT SOME POINT, YOU ALL WEREN’T OVER THE MOON ABOUT THIS PROJECT, AS WELL. I SHARED THE CONCERNS YOU ALL HAD. AND SO, BASED ON SEVERAL OF THE AMENDMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE AND THE WITHDRAWAL OF THE AMENDMENTS, HOW DO YOU FEEL? >>WE’RE MORE COMFORTABLE WITH THE DESIGN THAN THE ORIGINAL DESIGN. >>TODAY’S YOUR LUCKY DAY. >>I’LL TAKE IT. >>PUBLIC WORKS, ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS? YOU’RE LUCKY, AGAIN, BUDDY. SO, WITH THAT BEING SAID, MADAME CHAIR, IF THERE’S NO QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS, I’LL MAKE A MOTION TO FOLLOW TOWN BOARD’S RECOMMENDATION WITH ALL OF THE AMENDED CONDITIONS AS WELL AS THE CHANGES THAT HAVE BEEN PROPOSED TO THIS PROJECT FOR APPROVAL, PLEASE. >>AND THIS STAFF, CLEAR, THAT MEANS GETTING RID OF WAIVERS NUMBER THREE AND FOUR. >>WITHOUT PREJUDICE. >>PERFECT. >>FOR 38 AND 39. >>OKAY. COMMISSIONER BROWN? >>THANK YOU. >>DID YOU SAY IT’S 10 FEET? AND IF YOU WENT TO 7.5 FEET OR 5 FEET, WOULD THAT NOT INCREASE THE BACKYARD? >>IN SOME OF THOSE, YEAH, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN, IT WOULD GO INTO THE REAR YARD INSTEAD OF OUT ON LAKE MEADE. >>OKAY. >>COMMISSIONER WEEKLY HAS MADE A MOTION ON THE FLOOR. >>AND ONE THING TO ADD, I KNOW WHEN WE LOOK AT SEVERAL OF THE AREAS OVER THERE IN THE EASTERN PORTION OF OUR DISTRICTS THAT WE SHARE, WE DO HAVE SEVERAL LOTS. BUT WHAT WE DON’T WANT TO HAVE IS A BUNCH OF HOUSES SQUISHED IN AND WE CREATE A VERY HORRIBLE NEIGHBORHOOD. AND THAT’S NOT WHAT WE WANT. WE’D RATHER LEAVE THE LOT EMPTY OPPOSED TO JUST ACCEPTING ANYTHING. AND SO AS FAR AS ADDING THE LANDSCAPING TO HELP BEAUTIFY THE AREA, THAT’S THE GOAL THOSE OF US WHO REPRESENT THAT AREA HAVE SET FOR THERE. WE WANT TO GET THE RESIDENTS OVER THERE TO BELIEVE IN IT. WE KNOW IT’S TRANSITIONAL AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE MOVING BACK IN THERE BECAUSE WE’VE GIVEN THEM A REASON TO. AND WITH THE PRICE POINTS ON THESE PROPOSED HOMES HERE, WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT THAT AND HOPE THAT THIS WILL BE A PLACE THAT FAMILIES WILL WANT TO MOVE INTO AND REALLY HELP IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN THE AREA. SO THANK YOU AND YOUR CLIENT FOR ADHERING TO SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR. >>AND WE’LL BE BACK. >>THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR. >>THERE’S A MOTION ON THE FLOOR WITH STAFF CLEAR ON THE MOTION. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? SEEING NONE, PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE. MOTION PASSES. >>THANK YOU, COMMISSIONERS, I’M OUT OF HERE BEFORE MY LUCK RUNS OUT. THANK YOU. >>THANKS. >>NEXT IS ITEM 40. (READ ITEM NO. 40 ] >>GOOD MORNING. GOOD MORNING, MADAME CHAIR, LARRY BITTEN, REPRESENTING THE DEVELOPER. THE APPLICATION IN FRONT OF YOU IS FOR A FOUR-LOT SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION ON 5 ACRES OUT IN RURAL PRESERVATION ZONE. THE DE DESIGN REQUESTS THAT ARE IN FRONT OF YOU ARE TO WAIVE THE STANDARDS FOR GRAND CANYON DRIVE, RED COACH AND KRAFT, 60-FOOT RIGHT-OF-WAYS AND GRAND CANYON IS AN 80-FOOT RIGHT-OF-WAY. GRAND CANYON IS EXISTING IN THE RURAL STREET CONDITION WITH THE 32-FOOT-WIDE STREET THAT’S IN PLACE. THE DEVELOPER HAS PROPOSED TO GO WITH FOUR LOTS ON FIVE ACRES WHERE HE WOULD HAVE THE ABILITY UNDER THE RE ZONING TO GO IN WITH 8 TO 10 LOTS. THE ACCESS IS PROPOSED TO BE ON GRAND CANYON DRIVE WITH A SINGLE-POINT ACCESS. THERE HAS BEEN FEEDBACK DISCUSSIONS WITH THE TOWN ADVISORY BOARD IN WHICH THEY HAVE ACCEPTED AND THE SINGLE-POINT ACCESS ON TO GRAND CANYON. WE HAD PROPOSED ORIGINALLY CIRCULAR DRIVEWAYS THERE, BUT THE TOWN ADVISORY BOARD, THE CITIZEN’S ADVISORY BOARD REQUESTED THEY BE CHANGED TO SINGLE-POINT ACCESS. THERE’LL BE AN ON-SITE TURN AROUND. THERE’S DESIGN REVIEW REQUESTED TO INCREASE THE GRADE ON THE SITE. AND THAT IS DUE TO TOPOGRAPHY WHICH SLOPES SIGNIFICANTLY FROM THE WEST TO THE EAST. THERE’S 13 TO 14-FOOT ACROSS THE SITE. THE PADS WILL BE BUILT TO SATISFY PUBLIC WORKS STANDARDS TO DRAIN TOWARDS THE FLOW LINE IN GRAND CANYON, AND THEN, THE LOTS WILL BE SLOPED DOWN TO MATCH EXISTING GRADE AT THE EAST PROPERTY. AND THERE’S A WAIVER OF HEIGHTS LIMITED TO THE SIDE STREETS RED COACH AND KRAFT AND DUE TO THE ELEVATED PADS THAT ARE REQUIRED TO SATISFY PUBLIC WORKS STANDARDS. AND SO THE REAR PORTION OF THE LOTS WILL EXCEED THE STANDARD OR THE TYPICAL 12-FOOT, 6-FOOT. THE STANDARD 3-FOOT OF RETAINING WITH A 6-FOOT SCREEN WALL. THE OVERALL WALL HEIGHT GOES FROM AN ALLOWABLE 9-FOOT TO 12-FOOT HEIGHT. SO WITH THE FEEDBACK WE’VE GOTTEN FROM THE TOWN BOARD AND DISCUSSIONS WITH OTHER REPRESENTATIVES OF THE COUNTY, WE, THIS IS OUR PROPOSAL. WE ACCEPT STAFF’S APPROVAL CONDITIONS. AND I’M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. >>OKAY. THANK YOU. THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING. ANYONE INTERESTED OR ANYONE HAVE ANYTHING THEY’D LIKE TO SHARE IN OUR PUBLIC HEARING? COME DOWN AND STATE YOUR NAME FOR THE RECORD. AND WE’LL LISTEN TO YOUR QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS. >>MY NAME IS TERESA TOKUMON-PHILLIPS. MY ADDRESS IS 9539 DESERT CREST COURT. AND MY HOME, MY BACKYARD BACKS UP TO THIS SUBJECT PROPERTY RIGHT ALONG HERE. AND MY COMMENTS ARE IN SUPPORT OF THIS PROJECT. I BELIEVE THAT THE PROJECT IS CONSISTENT WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE LONE MOUNTAIN RURAL PRESERVATION WITH THE LOT SIZES. I BELIEVE THAT THE WAIVERS ARE MOST REASONABLE AND WORKABLE. AND THE DEVELOPER IS A NEIGHBOR WHICH IS IMPORTANT TO THOSE OF US THAT LIVE IN THE AREA THAT HE CARES ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD. AND I THINK HE’S DONE A WONDERFUL JOB WITH HIS OWN HOME AND I TRUST THAT HE’LL DO A GOOD JOB WITH THIS PROPERTY, AS WELL. >>VERY NICE. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. >>ANYBODY ELSE WISHING TO BE HEARD AT THIS TIME? SEEING NO ONE, WE WILL CLOSE PUBLIC HEARING AND TURN IT BACK OVER TO THE CHAIR WHO WILL TURN IT OVER TO THE PERSON — OKAY, WE’LL TURN IT OVER TO COMMISSIONER BROWN. >>THANK YOU. TERESA, THANK YOU FOR COMING DOWN. THOSE COMMENTS WERE SPOT ON. WHEN WE FIRST HEARD ABOUT THE PROJECT, THE IMMEDIATE CONCERN I HAD WAS IF THEY DID SOMETHING SIMILAR TO YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, EIGHT, POSSIBLY NINE-HOME CUL-DE-SAC, YOU WOULD BE LOOKING AT A DOUBLE WALL. AND I THINK THE APPLICANT DID A GREAT JB COMING IN NOT ONLY WITH THE FOUR HOMES BUT THE ABILITY TO RESPECT THE NEIGHBORS TO THE EAST. JUST A FANTASTIC JOB. AND HE IS A NEIGHBOR. HE’S AWARE OF EVERYTHING OUT THERE. I THINK IT BRINGS GREAT VALUE TO THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. SO I AM VERY, VERY SUPPORTIVE. I WOULD APPROVE SUBJECT TO STAFF CONDITIONS WITH TWO DIFFERENT CONDITIONS. ONE IS NO ADDITIONAL FILL BE BROUGHT INTO THE SITE. I THINK WE DISCUSSED THAT, LARRY. AND ALSO, THE ONLY TO ENSURE THAT THE BLOCKS ARE ON KRAFT AND RED COACH, AND ALTHOUGH HIGHER THAN THE 6 FEET DO SOMETHING AS FAR AS DECORATIVE BLOCK TO SOFTEN THE HEIGHT ON THE SIDE STREETS. THOSE WOULD BE MY ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS. >>OKAY. COMMISSIONER BROWN HAS MADE A MOTION WITH ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS. ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY, NOBODY WANTS BIG LOTS. I BEG TO DIFFER. YOU CAN BRING THEM TO DISTRICT B, AS WELL. NO FURTHER DISCUSSION, PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE. MOTION PASSES. >>THANK YOU. >>NEXT ARE ITEMS 42, 43 AND 44 WHICH CAN BE HEARD TOGETHER. [READ ITEM NO42, 43, 44 ] >>OKAY. GOOD MORNING, MS. STEWART. >>1930 VILLAGE CENTER CIRCLE WITH ME. >>ISAAC SOMERS, HENDERSON. >>HE’S WITH STORYBOOK HOMES. WE GO THROUGH THE TWO-STEP PROCESS. AND THE FIRST ONE, WE HAVE A NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING. THERE’S OFFICES TO THE WEST, AND SO, WHEN WE HAVE OUR NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING, A GENTLEMAN REPRESENTING THE OFFICE PARK AND HAVING AN OFFICE THERE CAME OUT AND EXPRESSED CONCERN ABOUT A DESIGN. AND AT THAT TIME, WE ACTUALLY HAD LOTS THAT WERE FACING REILLY STREET. AND I THINK THERE’S A CONCERN, THERE’S A SCHOOL TO THE SOUTHWEST. AND AS WITH ALL SCHOOLS, OF COURSE, IN THE MORNING AND IN THE AFTERNOON WHEN KIDS ARE DROPPED OFF AND THEN PICKED UP, THERE’S A LOT OF TRAFFIC IN THE AREA. AND PEOPLE ARE PARKING UP AND DOWN THE STREET AND HIS CONCERN WAS FACING OUT INTO REILLY, THAT REALLY ELIMINATED PARKING ON THIS SIDE OF THE STREET. SO WE WENT BACK, REDESIGNED IT, HELD IT SEVERAL TIMES THE PLANNING COMMISSION. AND SO, REDESIGNED IT SO EVERYTHING FACES INTERIOR. NOW, ALL OF THAT REILLY STREET IS CLEARED AND HAS ALL OF THE PARKING AND AVAILABLE TO THE PARENTS OF THE SCHOOL. WE HAVE
