RV park developer granted another extension in Pahrump

The developer of a proposed RV park in Pahrump received a 16-month extension for a conditional use permit which allows starting of the construction.

The RV park is planned for two adjoining parcels of 9.4 acres and 8.97 acres totaling approximately 18.37 acres at 2370 and 2470 E. Thousandaire Boulevard in Pahrump.

Darrin Pappa, agent for Clifford Realty Nevada, which owns the property, agreed to several project items.

Within the next 90 days, the developer will have to submit an annexation application to the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada, and submit a site development plan within six months.

Some of the major conditional use permit requirements include quarterly milestone reports. They will have to be provided to the Pahrump Regional Planning Commission by Nye County Planning Department Director Darrell Lacy.

As part of that, completion of at least 80 percent of the permitting and planning requirements are due within 12 months.

The construction will have to begin within 16 months, officials said.

The company also agreed to reduce the density of the park to 12 RV’s per acre instead of 15, which will reduce the original 275 spots to 220.

The developer initially requested a two-year extension for a conditional use permit for a 275-space RV park.

Pappa told the Pahrump Regional Planning Commission that 12 months is a “pretty aggressive” deadline to get the project dirt-moved.

“The compromises and conditions are pretty aggressive related to starting construction,” Pappa said.

He said 15-18 months would be a more appropriate deadline.

“Twelve months to me is a good time frame for approvals, but to get a shovel in the ground during that time is pretty aggressive,” Pappa said.

The conditional use permit for the proposed RV park was first approved in 2010 and then again in 2012 with a three-year expiration date. In 2015 a two-year extension was granted. No construction has occurred on the site since then.

The property is designated rural density residential, which is inconsistent with the Master Plan Update, according to the documents.

In his letter, Pappa said that the project stalled due to the state of the economy, resulting in difficulties obtaining financing from lending institutions.
