 Pahrump Regional Planning District Comprehensive Rezoning - Home
Zoning, which was either Open Use or Highway Frontage, was not consistent with the Master Plan.
In order to implement the Master Plan Update, rezoning of properties within the Pahrump Regional Planning District was necessary.  Rezoning allows Nye County to address Pahrump's development pressure in a proactive manner so that future growth reflects the goals of the Master Plan and the residents of the community.
The Comprehensive Rezoning Project utilized zoning districts established by the Pahrump Regional Planning Commission.  Additionally, several other zones were developed, including a Town Center Zone, several new zones to implement specific areas of Mixed Use designated properties, a Commercial-Manufacturing (C-M) zone, a Community Facilities (CF) zone, and an Open Space, Parks, and Recreation (OS) zone.
