Lois Tarkanian doesn't get to vote on this project. It's out of her jurisdiction. She voted down a 100 foot flag pole!!! http://www.lasvegasnevada.gov/inform...12027.htm?ID=#

Here is the reason that it never had a chance: Clark County (that's the county for Las Vegas) has a law that REQUIRES the city council to follow any recommendation given by the FAA. So for this tower to be built, not only would the FAA have to not prohibit it, they would have to actually recommend that it be built. The chances of the FAA recommending that a tall building be built are laughably unlikely. As long as Clark County has this law, don't expect to see anything even as high as the Stratosphere tower going up in Las Vegas.

FYI -- from the Clark County Code:


30.56.070 Height.

a. Height shall be measured from the finished grade to the highest point of the structure.
b. Except for single family detached residences, normal accessory structures, flagpoles, signs, and ornamental architectural features, all portions of structures over one (1) story or fourteen (14) feet shall be set back from any adjacent single family residential use a distance of three hundred percent (300%) of the height of the building or structure, except as provided in Figure 30.56-10 below.

c. No building or structure shall be permitted if the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) determines that the building or structure constitutes a hazard or obstruction to the operation of aircraft, unless the hazard can be mitigated per the FAA. This requirement cannot be waived or varied.

1. If required by Chapter 30.48 Part B, the applicant shall submit FAA Form 7460-1, Notification of Proposed Construction to the FAA, prior to submitting any application required for the approval of any structure that intrudes into the Airport Airspace Overlay District.

2. For any proposed structure that intrudes into the Airport Airspace Overlay District per Chapter 30.48 Part B and is not excepted, the applicant shall submit evidence that the FAA has determined whether the structure constitutes a hazard to air navigation two weeks prior to final action on any related land use application.
3. If the FAA determines that mitigation for a proposed structure intruding into the Airport Airspace Overlay District would impact airport operations, the proposed height intrusion shall not be approved. See 30.16.210(12)(d). (Ord. 3518 § 12 (part), 2007; Ord. 3219 § 7 (part), 2005: Ord. 3174 § 7, 2005; Ord. 2778 §§ 5—6, 2002; Ord. 2481 § 3 (part), 2000)

From the Clark County Agenda Sheet app. number UC-1430-06: http://dsnet.co.clark.nv.us/dsnetapp...a/P0199112.htm
"The tower which is designed like an obelisk has a maximum height of 1,888 feet with 142 stories, including restaurants, observation floors, and an outdoor terrace located on the top of the tower. The tower is centered on a large parcel; therefore, the project meets the 1:3 height setback requirement from Las Vegas Boulevard South and Paradise Road."

The FAA has not yet made public their determination one way or the other.
Permits #1, #2, #3, #5, #6, and #7, deviations #1, #2, #3, and #4, and design reviews #1, #2, #3, and #4 have all been approved by the Clark County Planning Commission. Just permit #4 is the only one we are still waiting on.

Possible explaination why the hearings keep getting delayed is because after obtaining the FAA recommendation they also need a permit from the Director or Aviation at McCarran Airport or a variance from the Airport Hazard Areas Board of Adjustment as required by Section 30.48.120 of the Clark County Unified Development Code. But that's not all, they then need to meet with property owners at Las Vegas County Club Home Owners Association and also address traffic impacts on Karen Avenue. After all that they then need to return to the Winchester Town Board before going back to the Clark County Planning Commission.
