                               (#210 @ 193 & #214)  

    The  Board  of  County Commissioners met at 9:00 a.m. in regular session

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Duvall  moved  that the Board table the Fort Collins Truss
    Special  Review  (#92-ZR0196)  until  June  7, 1993, as requested by the
    applicant.  

    Motion carried 3 - 0.   

    1.   VALLEY  VIEW ESTATE PRELIMINARY PLAT (#92-SU0208): SW 1/4 36-05-69;
         EAST OF US HIGHWAY 287, 1/4 MILE NORTH OF STATE HIGHWAY 60;
         22.4 ACRES; 25 LOTS; FA-FARMING ZONING (5-3-93)

    This is a request to divide 22.4 acres into 25 lots of .44 acres to 1.19
    acres  for  single family dwellings.  Ms. Bennett described the project,
    the major concerns and issues, and noted that the main concern regarding
    Highway  (287) has been resolved thru new design and shifting the access
    road to the south.  Ms. Bennett stated that a note will be placed on the
    Final  Plat  recommending  noise-reducting construction techniques.  Ms.
    Bennett  noted that this proposal requires two variances from the County
    Subdivision  Standards  regarding the length of the temporary cul-de-sac
    and  submitting  the  development as a subdivision rather than a planned
    unit development. Staff Findings include: 1) The proposed subdivision is
    consistent  with  the  County Comprehensive Plan, including the Loveland
    Master  Plan, the Subdivision Resolution, and the existing zoning of the
    property  (with  the  adjustment  to  the  4  lots  stated above) and is
    compatible  with  existing  and planned uses in the area; 2) Approval of
    the  proposed  Valley  View Estates, with the following conditions, will
    not result in any significant negative impact on surrounding properties,
    utility  service, transportation facilities, or the natural environment.
    Much  discussion  followed  concerning  the  lack of a long-range Master
    Plan,  lack  of  coordination  between  proposed  developments,  and the
    creation  of  future  traffic  problems  within  this  development.  The
    conditions were amended as follows: 
  
    The  Planning  Commission/Staff  Recommendation  is  for Approval of the
    Variance for exceeding the maximum allowed cul-de-sac with the condition
    that  final  plans  for  an  emergency secondary access, as shown on the
    Preliminary Plat, be approved by the Loveland Fire Prevention Bureau and
    the  Larimer  County  Engineer;  and  Approval  of  the Variance for not
    submitting  the  development  as  a  Planned  Unit Development, with the
    condition   that   landscaping   is   provided  consistent  with  County
    requirements  for  a  Planned  Unit  Development in the landscape buffer
    shown  on the Preliminary Plat; and Approval of the Preliminary Plat for
    Valley  View  Estates  for  25  single  family  lots  as  shown  on  the
    Preliminary Plat, with the following amended conditions: 1) All concerns
    of  the  County  Engineer,  the  County  Drainage Administrator, and the
    Loveland Fire Prevention Bureau shall be addressed by construction plans
    and  collateral  before  the  Final  Plat  is  approved;  2)  Final Plat
    documents  shall  include  an overlot grading plan and a reseeding plan,
    calculations  for  sizing of the detention pond, and a final landscaping
    plan.    Collateral   shall  include  installation  of  the  landscaping
    materials;  3)  Internal  subdivision  roads  shall  meet  urban  street
    standards;  4) Covenants shall address concerns of the Consolidated Home
    Supply Ditch and Reservoir Company; 5) School Fees of $8 per lot or $200
    shall be collected with the Final Plat; 6) An annexation agreement shall
    be  signed  as  required by the Loveland Intergovernmental Agreement; 7)
    The  following  notes  shall  be  added to the Final Plat; A) Engineered
    foundation plans shall be required for all construction on this site; B)
    The Larimer County Park Fee shall be collected when a building permit is
    issued  for  a  single  family dwelling on each lot; C) The results of a
    radon  test  shall  be  submitted  to  the  Planning Department before a
    Certificate  of  Occupancy is issued for any individual structure on the
    site;  D)  All  access  shall  be  limited to internal subdivision road;
    access to Lots 2 - 7 shall be limited to Valley View Court; E) Increased
    noise  insulation  of  walls,  triple-glazed windows, and orientation of
    living  spaces  away  from  US  Highway  287  are  recommended, as noise
    reduction  measures; F) Valley View Court will ecome a through street as
    adjacent development occurs; 8) The Final Plat shall address concerns of
    the  Colorado  Department  of Transportation regarding relocation of the
    access  onto  US 287, acceleration/deceleration lanes, an additional 20'
    reservation  along the frontage of US 287 for future road ROW, and a 15'
    dedication  with  the  Final  Plat.   The  Final Plat shall show the new
    setback  line  moved  15'  to the east; 9) A note shall be placed on the
    Final Plat stating that Valley View Lane is a thru street.  

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Duvall  moved  that  the Board deny the Valley View Estate
    Preliminary  Plat  because  the UGA density has not been met and lack of
    coordination in meeting UGA requirements.   

    Motion  failed  1  -  2;  Chairman  Hotchkiss  and  Commissioner  Disney
    dissenting. 
    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Disney  moved  that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and
    the Planning Commission/Staff Recommendation with Amended Conditions and
    approve  the  Valley  View Estate Preliminary Plat (#92-SU0208), and the
    two Variances as requested. 

    Motion carried 2 - 1; Commissioner Duvall dissenting.   

    2.   AMENDMENT  TO  THE  FENDER  REZONING SITE PLAT (#93-ZR0218): NW 1/4
         36-06-69; 5016 NORTH GARFIELD, LOVELAND; .34 ACRES; 1 LOT; 
         C-COMMERCIAL ZONING (5-3-93)   

    This  is  a  request  for  Special  Review  and  Change to Site Specific
    Development  Plan  approval  to  include a 40' x 60' storage shed and an
    expansion  of  the  use  of  the  site.  Mr. White reviewed the history,
    project  description,  and  noted  that  the  proposed addition does not
    appear  to  create any significant problems.  Staff findings are: 1) The
    proposed  use is consistent with the County Land Use Plan, County Zoning
    Resolution,  and  Intergovernmental  Agreements  with  Loveland;  2) The
    proposed  use  is  compatible  with  other commercial uses to the north,
    south,  and  west.   The  use  would  have  little  or  no impact on the
    residential  uses  to  the  east;  3) The request is consistent with the
    promotion   of  the  public  health,  safety,  convenience,  order,  and
    prosperity; no increased demand for public services will result from the
    proposal.   In response to the applicant's question regarding process to
    follow  if the type of business at this location would change, Mr. White
    stated  that  a  change  in  use would be allowable unless it is totally
    different;  which  would  require  coming  back to the Board through the
    review process. 

    The  Planning  Commission/Staff  Recommendation  is  for Approval of the
    Amendment  to  the  Fender Rezoning Development Plan, with the following
    amended  conditions: 1) A signed Annexation Agreement shall be submitted
    within  30 days of final approval in accordance with the requirements of
    the  Intergovernmental Agreements with Loveland; 2) A Deed of Dedication
    for  an  additional 10 feet of right-of-way shall be submitted within 30
    days  of  final  approval; 3) No more than one business shall operate on
    this property; however, the storage building may be used as an accessory
    storage area for the applicant's canvas repair business, which exists on
    the adjacent parcel, as long as the two parcels are in common ownership;
    4)  No  machinery or equipment shall be operated in the storage building
    that  would  be  audible  to residents in the adjacent homes; 5) The new
    building  shall  be  of  an  earthtone color with no reflective exterior
    surfaces;  6)  No additional signage shall be placed on the property; 7)
    The  access  easement  along  the  east  sign of the parcel shall remain
    unobstructed;  8)  Except as otherwise modified by the above conditions,
    all  development  and  use  of the property shall be consistent with the
    development   plan   previously   approved   by   the  Board  of  County
    Commissioners  on  August  25,  1986,  and  with  Zoning  File Exhibit A
    (Application  for  Zoning  Action dated February 14, 1993, with attached
    information);  9)  Compliance  with  requirements  of  the Loveland Fire
    Protection  Bureau,  at  the  time  of  building permit application; 10)
    Building  must  be  sited  as  shown  on  the  plan.  Any other building
    location  must  be  approved  by  the Planning Commission and the Board.
    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Disney  moved  to  adopt  the  Staff Findings and Planning
    Commission/Staff  Recommendation with Amended Conditions and approve the
    Amendment to the Fender Rezoning Site Plan. 

    Motion carried 3 - 0.   

    3.   POPE  ALLEGED JUNK YARD VIOLATION (USED CARS, CAR PARTS, COLLECTORS
         VEHICLES, ETC.); (#93-ZV0216): 1021 NORTH COUNTY ROAD 23H, WEST
         SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD 23H, ONE MILE SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 34, WEST OF 
         LOVELAND (5-3-93). 

    This  alleged  violation  is  for storing inoperable/unlicensed vehicles
    (14)  and  auto  parts  in  such a manner as to create a junk yard.  Mr.
    Pedas  reviewed  the  major issues and concerns, and submitted photos of
    the site taken on various dates.  Staff Findings include: 1) The subject
    property is Zoned FA-1 Farming; 2) The FA-1 Farming Zoning District does
    not  permit  outdoor  storage  of vehicles, sales, salvage or repair; 3)
    Autos  classified as collectors vehicles must be effectively screened if
    they   are   stored  outside;  4)  Continued  use  of  the  property  is
    inconsistent  with  the Zoning Regulations and State Statutes, which may
    affect property values in the neighborhood. 

    Staff  Recommendation  is  to  find  that  a  violation  exists, require
    compliance  within 30 days, and authorize legal action if the compliance
    deadline is not met.

    Eric  Pope, property owner, requested that the Board allow 45 to 60 days
    to  come  into  compliance as he has a contract to begin construction on
    June  1,  1993 on a 27' x 60' building in which he will be able to store
    nine vehicles.  Robert Williams, adjacent property owner and speaking on
    behalf  of  other  property owners in the area, read a document into the
    record  protesting  the  undesirable  conditions  existing on this site.
    Discussion followed.

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Disney  moved  that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and
    Staff   Recommendation   and  find  that  a  violation  exists,  require
    compliance  within 60 days, and authorize legal action if the compliance
    deadline is not met.

    Motion carried 3 - 0.   

    4.   RHEUBOTTOM ALLEGED JUNKYARD VIOLATION (#88-ZV9999): 630 WEST COUNTY
         ROAD 16 (5-3-93).  

    This  alleged  violation  is for storing inoperable/unlicensed vehicles,
    vehicle  salvage  in the FA-Farming Zoning District.  Mr. Pedas reviewed
    the  major  issues  and  concerns.   Staff  Findings are: 1) The subject
    property is zoned FA-Farming; 2) The FA-Farming Zoning District does not
    permit  junk  yards, auto repair or salvage operations; 3) Adequate time
    extensions  have  been  given  to the property owner in consideration of
    personal  matters  in order to remove junk vehicles; 4) Continued use of
    the  property as a junk yard will severely affect property values in the
    neighborhood;   5)  The  storage  of  junk  vehicles  provides  suitable
    harborage  for  rodents  and  other  pests;  6)  The  outside storage of
    vehicles  may  create  a  fire  hazard  and contribute to the growth and
    spread of noxious weeds.  The property owner did not appear.

    Staff  Recommendation  is  to  find  that  a  violation  exists, require
    compliance within 30 days, and authorize legal action if the deadline is
    not met.

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Disney  moved  that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and
    Staff   Recommendation   and  find  that  a  violation  exists,  require
    compliance within 30 days, and authorize legal action if the deadline is
    not met.

    Motion carried 3 - 0.   

    5.  WORKSESSION TO DISCUSS ITEMS NOT ON THE AGENDA: 

    A.  Final  Plat  Submission: Mr. Barnett stated that current regulations
    require  all  items  for  the subdivision process to be submitted at the
    same  time.   Over  the  years a process of two steps has evolved, which
    results  in  confusion and difficulty in making sure all conditions have
    been met.  Mr. Barnett suggested returning to the original process as it
    is  outlined in the regulations and requested Board approval.  CONSENSUS
    OF THE BOARD was to agree to this request.  

    B.  Enforcement  of Zoning Regulations: Mr. Pedas described the types of
    zoning  violations,  how  complaints  are  handled,  and  noted that the
    enforcement  process  and  procedures  were  last reviewed in 1978.  Mr.
    Pedas  stated  that  approximately  80%  of  the violations are resolved
    before coming to the Board. 

    Mr.  Legg  noted  that,  except  for  building code violations, all code
    violations result from a complaint.  Mr. Legg advised the Board that, in
    an  attempt  to  speed  up the enforcement process, Staff is considering
    revising   the  code  enforcement  procedure  whereby  the  Board  would
    authorize  Staff  to  issue  a  citation  when  a  violation is seen and
    wondered if the Board thought this would be appropriate.

    3.   Discussion Items: Discussion followed concerning the progress being
    made  regarding  scheduling certain land-use meetings at 4:30 p.m. or at
    night,  the  possibility  of  conducting  a survey among the citizens to
    determine  when  they would like the meetings, etc.  Commissioner Duvall
    requested  guidance  from  the Board and Counsel on procedures to follow
    for  changing  direction  of the Board and yet not changing the rules in
    the  middle of the game and staying within the limits of the law.  Staff
    noted  it  takes time to change policy and cited several examples of how
    they are attempting to make changes.

    The meeting recessed at 11:45 a.m.  
                                BUDGET DISCUSSION   
                                     (#215) 

    The  County Board of Commissioners reconvened in regular session at 2:|0
    p.m.  with  Bob  Keister,  Budget Manager.  Chairman Hotchkiss presided;
    Commissioners  Duvall  and  Disney were present.  Also present were Bill
    Gordon,   County   Administrator;  Robert  Grewell,  Division  Director,
    Financial Administration Division; Rex Smith, Director of Public Works ;
    and,  Ralph  Jacobs,  Personnel  Director.   Recording  Clerk, D.  Lord.

    Bob  Keister  presented  an overview of the county's budget process with
    target  completion  dates  for each step of the process.  He stated that
    his  primary  recommendation for a change in the process would be to ask
    county  departments to submit the first projections for revenues in May.
    Mr.  Keister  explained  the  need for a decision to be made to give the
    department heads direction in their budget development process. 

    The   Board   discussed  the  various  options  for  personnel,  Capital
    Expenditure  Fund  and  Designated Working Capital Fund, and the need to
    review  each  decision  based  on  the  impact  of Amendment One on both
    revenue and expenditures.   

    The  Board  agreed  on the following strategies for developing the FY 94
    budget: 

    o    Instructions should be given to department heads for the FY 94 
    budget  to  be  developed  at  the  same basic level approved for FY 93.

    o    The Personnel Director was instructed to contact the nine front
    range  counties  and  obtain  personnel  salary  data  to  use as a cost
    comparison  with  Larimer  County  employees  having the same or similar
    responsibilities, by June 1, 1993   

    o    The Budget Manager was instructed to contact department heads and  
    request a preliminary projection of revenues in May.

    o    The Board will begin scheduling Budget Planning Meetings with the  
    Budget Manager on open Thursdays to discuss budget issues.  

    The meeting was adjourned at 3:15 p.m.  

    TUESDAY, MAY 4, 1993

                          PUBLIC WORKS STANDING MEETING 
                                     (#216) 

    The  Board  of  County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in regular session
    with  Rex Smith, Director of Public Works.  Chairman Hotchkiss presided;
    Commissioners  Disney and Duvall were present.  Also present were: Frank
    Lancaster,  Natural  Resources Director; Bill Heiden, Director of Road &
    Bridge  Department;  and  Bill  Gordon, County Administrator.  Recording
    Clerk, S. Graves.   
    1.   Mr.  Lancaster  provided  an  overview  of  the  Natural  Resources
    Department   and  reviewed  the  history,  goals,  departmental  values,
    management  commitments,  and  Mission  Statement.  Mr.  Lancaster noted
    that  the  Natural  Resources Department is responsible for a variety of
    environmental  and resource management functions within the County.  The
    main  areas  of  responsibility  are  the  Larimer  County  Pest Control
    District,  Solid Waste Management Enterprise Fund, and Forestry and Pest
    Control.

    Mr.  Lancaster  discussed  with the Board the "Free Days" offered at the
    Landfill,  noting  that  during  the  last "Free Day" they had over 2600
    customers on one day, at a cost of $40,000 for the County.  By contrast,
    on  a  normal  day  they  have  400  customers.  Mr. Lancaster did note,
    however,  that  3,400  pounds of food and $806 in cash was collected for
    the  Distribution  Center  on that day.  Because of the growth which has
    occurred  in  the County, the Board agreed there is a need to change the
    Intergovernmental Agreement with Fort Collins and Loveland regarding the
    offering of "Free Days" at the Landfill each year.  

    Discussion  ensued regarding the goal of the Larimer County Pest Control
    District;  which  is  to limit the spread of noxious weeds, particularly
    leafy spurge and Canada thistle within Larimer County.  

    2.   Mr. Heiden requested approval to use $290,000 of the unappropriated
    Road  and  Bridge  Fund  Balance to fund Project #194 for County Road 15
    improvements,  to  cover the increase in cost for emulsion for chipseal,
    and  to  pay  increased  facility  rent.   Mr.  Heiden  noted  that this
    transaction will leave $132,000 remaining in the Fund Balance.  

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Disney  moved  that  the  Board approve the request to use
    unappropriated Road and Bridge Fund Balance in the amount of $290,000 to
    fund Project #194.  

    Motion carried 3 - 0.   

    The meeting recessed at 10:40 a.m.  

        MEETING WITH THE LARIMER COUNTY HOUSING AUTHORITY ADVISORY BOARD
                                     (#217) 

    The  Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 10:45 a.m. to meet with
    members   of  the  Larimer  County  Housing  Authority  Advisory  Board.
    Chairman  Hotchkiss  presided;   Commissioners  Duvall  and  Disney were
    present.   Also  present  were:  Bill Gordon, County Administrator; Rena
    Mackrill,  Director, Carol Gillespie, Director of Community Development,
    and  Lani VanEck, Housing Development Specialist, representing the Human
    Development  Department;  Housing  Authority Advisory Board members Dick
    Strachan,  Gary  Hageman,  Janet  Erickson,  Lauren Hansen, Vern Sunset,
    Connie  Ludwig,  and  Chris  Zell;  and,  Christinia  Eala, CAB Liaison.
    Recording Clerk, D.  Lord.  
    Lauren  Hansen,  Chairperson  of the Advisory Board, presented the Board
    with  information  regarding the activities, plans and programs in which
    the Advisory Board are currently involved.  She reported that Affordable
    Housing,   HUD   Certificates/Voucher   Program,   REHAB   Project,  and
    redesignation  of  the  Advisory  Board to a separate, non-county agency
    were a few of their projects.   

    Chairman Hotchkiss explained that the county had no problem with looking
    at  options  and investigating whether to redesignate the Advisory Board
    as a entity separate from county government, but that the Advisory Board
    should  prepare  plans, action steps and cost figures prior to any final
    discussion  of  the  move.   Commissioner  Duvall  volunteered to act as
    liaison to the Advisory Board.  The Board and the Housing Advisory Board
    agreed  to  meet  together  to discuss any mutual items of interest on a
    more regular basis. 

    The meeting was adjourned at 11:40 a.m. 

    WEDNESDAY, MAY 5, 1993  
                             ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS 
                                     (#218) 


    The  Board  of  County  Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in administrative
    session  with  Bill  Gordon,  County  Administrator.  Chairman Hotchkiss
    presided:   Commissioners Duvall and Disney were present.  Also present:
    Dale  Miller,  Assistant  Director,  Road  and  Bridge  Department;  Bob
    Martell,  Purchasing  Agent;  Patrice Luehring, Purchasing Buyer II; Bob
    Grewell,  Finance  Director;  and,  Wayne  Lawler, Facilities Management
    Director.  Recording Clerk, D. Lord.

    1.    The first item for discussion was the Polymerized Rubber Crackfill
    bid  and  the  purchasing  policy  as  it  relates to final selection of
    awards.   In  the  matter of the Polymerized Rubber Crackfill bid, and a
    letter  of  protest  received  by Meggison Enterprises, Inc.  Mr. Miller
    explained  that  the  Meggison  bid  violated  the  requirements  of the
    specification,  had  vulcanized  material,  and left two questions blank
    that was vital to the decision to award the bid, especially in the areas
    of  use  of  materials  and  quality  assurance  for  the material to be
    provided.   The vendor receiving the award met all the specifications of
    the bid package and was the second lowest bidder.   

    MOTION  

    Commissioner  Duvall moved that a variance be granted in relation to the
    lowest  bidder  policy  to  ensure  that  the Road and Bridge Department
    receive  material  as  called  for  in  its  bid  specification package.

    The motion carried 3 - 0.   

    2.     Courthouse  space  for Larimer County judicial facilities and the
    use  of  the Courthouse for the City of Fort Collins Municipal Court was
    discussed.  The Board decided to convene a discussion meeting with Scott
    Courtney  and representatives of the City of Fort Collins to discuss the
    issue prior to any decisions being made.
    3.  The nominations for appointment to the Larimer County Subdivison and
    Exemption  Review  Group  (SERG)  was discussed.  The Board decided that
    since  the  group  was an ad hock task force with a specific charge, the
    term of office would end when the task was completed.   

    MOTION: 

    Commissioner  Disney  moved  that  Scott  Johnson,  Roger  Hoffman,  Jim
    Crowder,  Becki  Malecki,  Mary Humstone, James Cox, Linda Norton, Alvin
    Geist,  and  Vern  Sunset be appointed to the Larimer County Subdivision
    and  Exemption  Review  Group  until  the  charge  to  the committee was
    completed, effective May 5, 1993.   

    The motion carried 3 - 0.   

    4.   The  Board  reviewed  the  letter  of  recommendation  from Sheriff
    Shockley to appoint Erik Nilsson to the position of Emergency Management
    Specialist. 

    MOTION  

    Commissioner Disney moved that the Board approve the appointment of Erik
    Nilsson  to  the  position  of Emergency Management specialist to become
    effective on May 1, 1993.
