Mr. Barnett requested the Board table the Mary V. Moore Minor Residential Development Addendum until June 28, 1993. M O T I O N Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board table the Mary V. Moore Minor Residential Development Addendum (#93-EX0235) until June 28, 1993, as requested by Mr. Barnett. Motion carried 3 - 0. Mr. Barnett stated that the following is a consent item and will not be discussed in detail unless specifically requested by the Commission or members of the audience. 1. CROWN POINT SUBDIVISION (#S-4-91): 36-06-69; SOUTH SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD 28 (57TH STREET), 3/4 MILE EAST OF HIGHWAY 287; 8.67 ACRES; 24 LOTS; R-1 RESIDENTIAL ZONING (6-14-93). This is a request to release this project from the "Freeze" to allow construction of the subdivision as approved. Staff Findings include: 1) The Final Plat for Crown Point Subdivision was approved in 1980; 2) The economy at that time was such that it was not economically feasible to construct the improvements; 3) Rather than vacate the subdivision, the County Commissioners allowed the project to be "Frozen" until it became feasible to complete the project; 4) When a project is released from the "Freeze", it is subject to all current regulations; 5) The Crown Point Subdivision is consistent with existing development in the area and with all requirements of the Intergovernmental Agreement for the Loveland Urban Growth Area. Staff Recommendation is for Approval of the request to release Crown Point Subdivision from the "Freeze" with the following conditions: 1) Prior to the release of Lot Sale Restriction, the applicant shall revise construction plans for streets, drainage and utilities to meet standards in effect today. All appropriate agencies must approve the revised plans; 2) By Resolution of the Board of County Commissioners, it shall be noted in the public record that the lots in Crown Point Subdivision are subject to Park Fees, Off-site Road Fees, engineered foundation plans, drainage fees and radon tests. These are standard requirements for subdivisions that were not in effect in 1980 when Crown Point Subdivision was approved. M O T I O N Commissioner Disney moved that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and Staff Recommendation and approve the Crown Point Subdivision (#S-4-91), with the conditions as outlined. Motion carried 3 - 0. 2. KOTIN SUBDIVISION FINAL PLAT (#92-SU0094): Mr. Kadera requested Board approval and the Chairman's signature on a Subdivision Improvements Agreement and the Kotin Subdivision Final Plat. M O T I O N Chairman Disney moved that the Board approve the Kotin Subdivision Improvements Agreement and the Kotin Subdivision Final Plat, and authorized the Chairman to sign same. Motion carried 3 - 0. A93-112 AGREEMENT RELATING TO THE SUBDIVISION AND DEVELOPMENT OF KOTIN SUBDIVISION BETWEEN THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AND EDWARD AND CLAUDIA KOTIN 3. LITTLE MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT (#93-EX0242): NW 1/4 20-04-69; SOUTH SIDE OF COLORADO HIGHWAY 56 (COUNTY ROAD 8), 2 1/2 MILES WEST OF BERTHOUD, WEST OF MONTVIEW ACRES SUBDIVISION; 16.2 ACRES; 3 LOTS; FA-1 FARMING ZONING (6-14-93). This is a request to divide a 16.2 acre parcel into three lots of 2.3, 2.3, and 11.6 acres for single family dwellings. Staff Findings are: 1) The proposed Little Minor Residential Development is consistent with requirements for Minor Residential Developments as contained in the Larimer County Subdivision Resolution concerning the number of lots created, lot sizes, proposed use, and access; 2) The proposed Little Minor Residential Development appears to be consistent with the Larimer County Comprehensive Plan and with existing development in the area; 3) The County Health and Engineering Departments, the Colorado Department of Transportation, the Berthoud Fire District, and various utility companies and other agencies have reviewed the proposal and stated no objections as long as certain conditions are met; 4) The Town of Berthoud has reviewed the request and recommends denial because of potential future division of the 11.6 acre parcel; 5) Approval of the proposed Little Minor Residential Development, with the following conditions, should not adversely affect area properties, the natural environment, or the provision of services or transportation. Staff Recommendation is for approval of the Little Minor Residential Development with fourteen (14) conditions. Peter Cooney, Ron Townen, and other adjacent property owners, addressed the Board in opposition to the Little Minor Residential Development, and cited their concerns regarding the access point, drainage and run off, obstruction of the mountain view, ever-expanding population growth in this rural area, etc. A list of names was submitted of other property owners in the area in opposition to the granting of this MRD. M O T I O N Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board concur with the recommendation of the Town of Berthoud and deny the Little Minor Residential Development (#93-EX0242). Motion carried 3 - 0. 4. WILLIAMS-MORAINE AVENUE PROPERTY DISCUSSION: 34-5-73; EAST SIDE OF SPUR 66 (MORAINE AVENUE), 1/2 MILE SOUTHWEST OF BEAVER POINT Mr. Pedas provided the history of the subject property, apprised the Board of the current situation, and requested direction from the Board as to what steps should be taken to remedy the situation. Mr. Pedas noted the Williams property has generated a lot of interest over a period of years because it is highly visible from Spur 66; and most of the time, the condition of the subject property borders on being a zoning violation. After discussion, the Board recommended Mr. Pedas investigate the property to determine what needs to be done for the Williams property to come into compliance. The meeting recessed at 9:50 a.m. PARKS MASTER PLAN PUBLIC HEARING (#248) The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 1:30 p.m. with K-Lynn Cameron, Planner, and John MacFarlane, Director, of the County Parks Department for the purposes of holding a public hearing on the Park's Department Master Plan. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Duvall and Disney were present. Also present were County Administrator, Bill Gordon; Tom Keith and Jana MccKenzie representing EDAW; and representatives of the Parks Board and Trails Committee, as well as members of the public. Recording Clerk, D. Lord. Ms. Cameron presented an overview of the plan, and updated the Board on some revisions that had been made since the preliminary plan had been presented in February. She said that the two actions being requested of the Board were adopt the Master Plan, as revised, and recommend that the Planning Commission include the plan in the Comprehensive Land Use Planning document. She also provided survey results indicating support for a sales tax increase to assist in implementation of the plan. Highlights of the plan include open space areas, capital improvements and replacements at existing parks, a cooperative project with the city of Fort Collins for Fossil Creek Reservoir, and eight trail projects around the county. When public testimony was given, considerable support was expressed for the development of the trail projects, especially for the use of horseback riding. MOTION Commissioner Duvall made a motion that the Board adopt the Parks Master Plan for Larimer County as presented, and that the Plan be recommended to the Planning Commission for adoption as a part of the Larimer County Comprehensive Land Use Plan. Motion carried 3 -0. MOTION Commissioner Duvall made a motion that the Board recognizes that additional funding for implementation of the plan would be ideal, and that the Board work with the Parks Board, private sector and concerned citizens to identify funding resources. The motion carried 3 - 0. The meeting was adjourned at 3:00 p.m. TUESDAY, JUNE 15, 1993 PUBLIC WORKS STANDING MEETING (#250) 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: Elaine Spencer, Manager Engineering Operations & Planning; K-Lynn Cameron, Parks Planner; Russ Legg, Development Processing Administrator; Ed Stoner, Fort Collins Inc. Executive Director; and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves. 1. REQUEST FOR FUNDING-NORTHEAST FT. COLLINS BUSINESS ASSOCIATION: Mr. Stoner requested 50% County participation ($3,500) for the reconstruction of Canal Drive in Crossroads Subdivision to restore the road to County standards, with the caveat that the County will not pay this match until (NEBA) Northeast Business Association has voted to form a Public Improvement District. Mr. Smith noted he is not in disagreement with this request, but is concerned about setting a precedent if the request is granted, and expressed his concern for the County continually accepting roads for maintenance and no increase in funding is received. M O T I O N Commissioner Disney moved that the Board authorize the expenditure of $3,500 out of the 1992 Road and Bridge Carry-Over for the re-construction of Canal Drive, pending voter approval of the Crossroads East Subdivision residents to form a Public Improvement District. Motion carried 3 - 0. 2. GRASSLANDS APPEAL: Mr. Smith apprised the Board of the Grasslands Appeal which will be heard by the Board next Monday, June 21, 1993. 3. POLE HILL ROAD UPDATE: Mr. Smith reviewed the history of the Pole Hill Road near Estes Park and updated the Board on the current situation; noting that in 1939, the property owners and the County signed an agreement that public access would be restricted on this road. Now, the Forest Service wants to re-open the road and has scheduled a meeting on June 22, 1993 with the homeowners and is hoping to acquire a right-of-way, either thru willing buyer or condemnation. Ms. Cameron stated that the position of the Parks Department is that they are interested in non-motorized access only. 4. CONTINENTAL NORTH SUBDIVISION ACCESS: Mr. Smith briefed the Board concerning a situation which exists on the County Road going north from Inlet Bay; with a short portion of the road going thru Bureau of Reclamation land. Mr. Smith explained that when a road goes thru government property, a license is required to have the road remain open. The Bureau wants to enter into an agreement whereby the County will maintain this road. The Bureau can't enter into a license agreement with the homeowners, but the County can. The County agreed to get a license for the road, and the homeowners maintain the road, but they were approached and said "No", as advised by their attorney because of liability. After discussion, the Board determined if the County could get the Bureau to quit-claim the property it would resolve the problem. Staff will pursue this further. The meeting recessed at 10:40 a.m. COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS QUARTERLY MEETING (#246 @ 1790) The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 10:45 a.m. in regular session with Paul Cooper, Director of Community Corrections.

Also present were: Laurie Klith, Chairman Youth Services Board; Steve Schapanski, Chairman Community Corrections Advisory Board; and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves. COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS ADVISORY BOARD: Mr. Cooper stated that Mr. Seth Temin, Public Defender, has submitted an application for appointment to the Community Corrections Advisory Board and will represent the Public Defender's Office in place of Anne Williams. Mr. Temin lives in Boulder and Bylaws state that all members shall be residents of Larimer County. The Advisory Board and Mr. Cooper requested and recommended the Board make an exception in this case. Discussion followed. CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to grant an exception to the Board Bylaws, as recommended by the Advisory Board and Mr. Cooper, and allow Mr. Seth Temin to serve on the Community Corrections Advisory Board. Mr. Cooper informed the Board that the Colorado Department of Corrections would like to initiate an intensive supervision program in Larimer County for inmates not yet paroled. The State will provide reimbursement based upon units and types of services delivered. Most offenders would move to this program after successfully completing the residential program and then be primarily supervised by Department of Corrections Staff. Per Statute, all placements must be approved by the Community Corrections Board, and even though there are some concerns. Mr. Cooper recommends the County Commissioners approve this program. At their June 8 meeting, the Advisory Board passed a "Motion for Action" recommending approval of this program. M O T I O N Commissioner Disney moved that the Board approve and consent to the provision of intensive supervision services, consistent with CRS 17-27.5-101, and as recommended by the Larimer County Community Corrections Advisory Board. Motion carried 3 - 0. YOUTH SERVICES BUREAU ADVISORY BOARD: Mr. Cooper reported that Senate Bill 93-134 passed the Legislature and is waiting for the Governor's signature. This Bill concerns the supervision of juveniles and provides for the creation of a Juvenile Services Planning Committee, appointed by the Chief Judge from persons recommended by the Board of County Commissioners within the judicial district. Mr. Cooper recommends that the Board consider recommending the appointment of the Youth Services Advisory Board to Judge Sullivan. CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to recommend this appointment; Mr. Gordon will inform Judge Sullivan. FINANCIAL REPORT: Mr. Cooper reported that total revenue for Adult Services for the year is $452,735, with expenditures of $451,497, resulting in a balance of $1,238. Discussion of the fund balance and year-end carry over followed. Mr. Cooper noted that the contract for FY 93-94 is currently being reviewed by the County Attorney's Office and will be presented for Board approval soon. Mr. Cooper stated that the legislature reduced the State paid per diem for residential from $30.83 to $30.33, but has authorized an increase in fees to residents from $9 to $10 per day to offset the reduction. Mr. Cooper stated that the Division of Youth Services Grant and the Juvenile Diversion Funds will continue with the same amount of funding as last year. Mr. Cooper reviewed the definitions of Success for Residential Services, Community Supervision & Court Services, Family Emergency Team, and Community Service and noted they all will be working to increase the 100% success outcomes through the year. Mr. Schapanski advised the Board concerning revisions made by Legislature this year to the Community Corrections Statute. With regard to revisions made to the civil immunity section, Mr. Schapanski suggested the Board may wish to check with George Hass, County Attorney, to determine if the Advisory Board is acting within its capacity and functioning within the Statute. CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to seek legal counsel regarding this matter. The meeting recessed at 11:35 a.m. MEETING WITH COUNTY TEAM FACILITATORS (#251) The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 3:00 p.m. in general session with Dana Klausmeyer, Controller; Frank Lancaster, Director of Natural Resources; and, Len Bammer, Fleet Manager, Fleet Management Department. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Duvall and Disney were present. Also present was Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, D. Lord. Chairman Hotchkiss explained that the meeting was being held to bring the Board up to date on the activities of the three team leaders. Mr. Bammer reported that his team, the Customer Service Team, had divided into three sub-groups to focus on the areas of customer services to the public, in-house customer services, and customer relations with vendors and the business community. Surveys are being prepared by team members for distribution to the focus groups. He reported that his team is still planning to meet the August 15th deadline to submit their report. Mr. Lancaster reported that his team has been discussing various methods of addressing the long and short term objectives, and had held discussion with CSU and others about assistance. CSU has stated that if the county has funds for outside contracts, they couldn't be involved. He said the team was working on a video project, also. He reported that concern had been expressed by team members for the Board to express its endorsement of the team's recommendations so that other county departments would know that the Board is behind the work of the committee. Ms. Klausmeyer reported that one of the problems was the "budget" team designation. She said that there was a degree of distrust that is always associated with a group identified in that manner. The Board agreed that a more appropriate designation might be resource allocation or a similar name. No action was taken, and the meeting was adjourned at 4:00 p.m. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 1993 ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS (#247 @ 2500 & #254) The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in regular session with Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were: Irene Josey, Chief Deputy Treasurer, and Bob Martell, Purchasing Agent. Recording Clerk, S. Graves. 1. BIDS FOR PUBLISHING OF THE DELINQUENT TAX LIST: Mr. Gordon reviewed for the Board the Statute and the procedure followed in the past for the publication of the delinquent tax list, and queried if the Board wished to follow the same procedure and resolution this year. Ms. Josey stated the Treasurer's Office solicits bids for the publication and then submits a recommendation to the Board for approval. Ms. Josey noted that expense of the regular publication comes out of the Treasurer's budget; the cost of insertions in other publications in the County comes out of the Commissioners' budget. Commissioner Duvall would like to know what it will cost to do the insertions and requested Ms. Josey to solicits bids which include the insertions. 2. COMMISSIONER'S REPORTS: Commissioner Duvall discussed her membership on the Fort Collins, Inc. Selection Committee and whether or not she should continue to serve. After discussion, it was determined that participation from the Board would be in a liaison capacity and Commissioner Duvall will resign from the FCI Selection Committee. Commissioner Duvall reviewed the Springfield P.U.D. proposal presented to the Human Development Department requesting their assistance in the 92-unit low income housing project. The developers of the project would like the County to provide the financing, own, manage, and be responsible for the project. Commissioner Duvall proposed appointing a team, including Staff from the Human Development Department, and the Advisory Board, to investigate this project further and return to the Board with a proposal and plan. Commissioner Disney reported on the CCI Convention which he attended last week and some of the issues which will be coming before the Board in the future. Commissioner Disney suggested a Fall activity for the employees, such as Employee Day at Elitch Gardens, would be to attend the Scottish Festival in Estes Park. At this time, the Board went into Legal Matters with George Hass, County Attorney, Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney, Bob Grewell, Finance Director, and Mr. Aubrecht, of Kemper Securities.

CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to deny this request. -- The Board has been invited by Governor Romer to attend an Economic Development Strategies Regional Conference in Loveland on Wednesday, June 30, 1993.

Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Duvall and Disney were present. Also present were Bill Gordon, County Administrator and representatives of Hunt and Spillman, the firm that conducted the 1992 audit of Larimer County. Recording Clerk, D. Lord. Mr. Grewell reported that the reason for this meeting was to officially present the Financial Report for Fiscal Year 1992. Ms. Klausmeyer presented an overview of the report and the various sections of the report. She said that the audit recently completed by Hunt and Spillman found that the county's accounting and financial operations met the criteria of operating by generally accepted accounting principles for government and had received a "Clean Opinion", which is one of the highest ratings by auditing standards. She said that the Management Letter, which would transmit the County's response to the audit was currently in draft form, and is expected to be completed within a few weeks. Commissioner Duvall asked that another meeting be scheduled to continue reviewing the 1992 Financial Report, the Management Letter, and related fiscal operations activities. Ma. Klausmeyer briefly reviewed the APPLICATION OF THE TABOR AMENDMENT (AMENDMENT ONE) report that had been developed for discussion. The report contains three projected calculations of property tax limits, spending limits and applicable expenditures, based on 1992 budget figures. Because of the importance of this issue to future planning, Chairman Hotchkiss stated that this report would be on the next meeting agenda. No action was taken and the meeting was recessed at 2:30 p.m. MEETING REGARDING RED FEATHER LAKES AGENDA FOR JUNE 23, 1993 (#256) The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 2:35 p.m. for a meeting with James and Reba Kirkbride of the Red Feathers Lakes Property Owners Association. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Duvall and Disney were present. Also present were Bill Gordon, County Administrator, Myrna Rodenberger, County Clerk and Recorder, Diane Martell, Staff Manager, Special Districts, and Mr. and Mrs. Kauffman of Longmont. Recording Clerk, D. Lord. Mr. Kauffman opened by stating his concern that all property owners were not being informed of actions being taken in Red Feather Lakes that is proposed regarding a special district for roads. He stated that he was concerned that the process was being pushed through without proper notification of all concerned. Chairman Hotchkiss explained that the Board's only involvement in this type of activity is to decide to make it a ballot issue if enough local voters sign a petition to do so. He said that the majority of time, the number of voters for a ballot issue petition would be a minimum of sixty percent to have the Board agree to add it to the ballot for a vote. There was some discussion regarding the rules involving preparing the necessary documents and arranging the hearings on the issue in order to meet the state law. Chairman Hotchkiss suggested that, as the issue is one that is primarily a concern of the residents, that would be the proper avenue for this type of discussion, and once petitions are signed, the matter could be brought before the Board. On the matter of the agenda for the County Seat for a Day hearing that the Board has scheduled for June 24, 1993, it was decided that after the Board had dinner, the meeting would be convened at 7:00 p.m. at the Red Feather Lakes Community Center. No action was taken, and the meeting was adjourned at 3:45 p.m. _______________________________ COURTLYN W.
