Pahrump subdivision would feature 145 residential lots

The Pahrump Regional Planning Commission is expected to vote on a tentative map application for a subdivision containing 145 residential lots on approximately 33.34 acres in the Mountain Falls Master Planned Community.

Commissioners postponed a discussion on the item on May 10 after the Nye County Planning Department and William Lyon Homes, the developer behind the subdivision, requested more time to address several questions.

“The county and William Lyon Homes needed additional time to address each other’s questions with what they are doing,” said Cheryl Beeman, Nye County principal planner.

In a phone interview on Monday, Beeman said Nye County officials had already met with William Lyon Homes representatives and discussed several aspects such as easements and realignment of a portion of Mountain Falls Parkway.

The Mountain Falls planning area 8 is on the south side of the development and is adjacent to and west of the pro-shop parking lot. Mountain Falls is currently transferring land from the golf course to the planning area for housing, Beeman said.

“We needed some additional info on the connectivity between the planning areas of the golf course and Mountain Falls Parkway,” Beeman said.

Under Nevada Revised Statute, the subdivision, which is being marketed as a gated and age-qualified community, requires approval of a tentative map and approval of a final map.

The Mountain Falls Master Planned Community is subject to a development agreement between Nye County and Mountain Falls Acquisition Corp., that is valid and in effect until Dec. 31, 2030. The development agreement has its own policies and is exempt from a Pahrump zoning ordinance.

The developer, William Lyon Homes, also requested a few waivers from design standards to allow for a private street section, a waiver from the front residential low setback design standard to allow for a 10-foot front building setback and; a waiver from the rear residential low setback design standard to allow for a 10-foot rear building setback.

No additional water rights will be required by Great Basin Water Co., and sufficient water rights have been deeded to the utility company to provide service for this property, according to the documents.

Beeman said the Pahrump Regional Planning Commission is expected to vote on the application at the next meeting.

“Based on the information that we prepared, I think we are prepared and ready to move forward,” Beeman said.

The Pahrump Regional Planning Commission’s next meeting is scheduled for June 14.
