    Discussion  was  held regarding what the County can do to stop ridgeline
    development  in  Larimer  County.  Ms. Haag stated that if the zoning in
    place  allows  the  construction  of  single family residences, there is
    nothing  the County can do.  Options discussed were: changing the zoning
    to   prohibit   development,  requiring  certain  design  standards  for
    buildings  to  minimize  visual  impact,  adopting  a  new design review
    overlay  zone,  granting  conservation  easements,  purchasing the land,
    offering  tax  incentives  to  land  owners if they agree not to develop
    their land, etc.  The possibility of putting this question on the ballot
  
    in  November,  to  determine  the  exact  sentiment of the people in the
    County,  was  considered.  Ms. Haag and Mr. Barnett will meet to discuss
    this  matter  further  and  return  with  alternatives  for  the Board's
    consideration.

    The  Board  of  County  Commissioners  met  at  1:30 p.m. in Estes Park,

    Improvement  District  Administrator;  Diane Martell, SID Staff Services
    Manager; and Marla Hehn, Assistant County Attorney.  Recording Clerk, S.

    Mr.  Burns  stated  that  the purpose of today's hearing to consider the
    formation  of  a  public improvement district for the Little Valley area
    which is located south and east of Estes Park and accesses from the Fish
    Creek  Road.   The hearing is being held in response to petitions signed
    by  a  majority of electors requesting formation of a public improvement
    district.   The  district  will  levy  not-to-exceed  10  mills to raise
    approximately  $18,000  per year for maintenance of certain public roads
    within the district.
  
    Mr.  Burns  described  the conditions under which the Board shall decide
    whether  or  not  the  district  should be formed: 1) The petitions were
    properly   executed   by   the  required  number  of  electors;  2)  The
    improvements  would confer a general benefit on the district; and 3) The
    cost  of the improvement would not be excessive as compared to the value
    of  the  property  in  the  district.  Mr. Burns noted that if the Board
    approves  the  resolution for organizing this district, it will still be
    on the ballot in November for the electors to approve.  

    Ms.  Hehn  described  the  qualifications  of those eligible to sign the
    petition:  1) 18 years of age or older; 2) Citizen of the United States;
    3)  Resided  in  the  State of Colorado for twenty-five days immediately
    preceding  the  signing  of  the  petition;  and 4) Owns taxable real or
    personal  property in the area to be included in the District.  Ms. Hehn
    also described the rules for determining residence. 

    Chairman  Hotchkiss  requested a show of hands of those in attendance at
    today's  hearing--there  were  approximately  35 persons in favor of the
    district  and  four  opposed.   Nine  persons addressed the Board citing
    their  reasons for wanting the district formed.  James Martell, attorney
    representing  the  opposition,  questioned  the  cost in relation to the
    value  of  the  property  and whether or not there is benefit derived by
    formation  of  the  district.   Mr. Martell stated that the formation of
    this  district  would not be of general benefit to everyone in the area,
    but  substantial  benefit  to  the  property  owners  in  Little Valley.
    Therefore,  he  recommended  the  Board  consider  the  formation of two
    districts--one  for  each  of  the two residential sections in the area.
    Discussion followed.
