The Nye County Board of Commissioners has approved a plan that would create more than forty townhomes inside the Mountain Falls Master Planned Community. The developer wants to divide existing lots in order to accommodate the townhomes -- in effect, putting two homes on what is now a single lot. Commissioners rejected a similar proposal last fall. But they approved it this time around, after the developer made a few changes -- and, after some discussion about water rights. The Board of Commissioners approved the proposed lot splits in a four-to-one vote. Commission Chair John Koenig voted against the proposal.
