This is a request for a proposal to add 1.7 acres to the existing Ram's Horn Village for a total of 53 dwelling units on 6.35 acres with 17 single family dwelling units and 18 duplexes (36 units). Staff Findings are: 1) The proposed Amended Master Plan for Ram's Horn Village Planned Unit Development is consistent with the current zoning of the site and with existing development in the area; 2) The County Health Department and all utilities serving this area have reviewed the Master Plan and stated no objections.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

3. WIANT MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT APPEAL (94-EX0590):

11-05-70; SOUTH OF STATE HIGHWAY 34, EAST OF COUNTY

ROAD 29; FA-1 ZONING (10-24-94).

This is a request to allow a Minor Residential Development to be submitted which is located in Range 70. Mr. Legg reviewed the major concerns and issues and noted that Staff is recommending denial of this request because the proposal is inconsistent with the adopted regulations of the county. Staff Findings include: 1) The Minor Residential Development regulations were amended to limit application to Range 68 and 69; 2) This applicant proposed the creation of 2 lots by Minor Residential Development located in Range 70.

Mr. Wiant, applicant, addressed the Board and indicated he is making this request to insure that this location remains available for a future home site and not become a commercial site. Commissioner Disney asked for clarification of the exact location of this site. Chair Duvall asked about the other lot sizes in this area; Mr. Legg noted that the area is zoned for a minimum of 2.5 acre lots and the majority of lots are fairly large.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board approve the Wiant Minor Residential Appeal, noting that even though he agrees with the policy not to allow MRD's in the mountains, this site is not in the mountains and subdividing this lot into large lots is compatible with the existing land uses in the area.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

4. GARDELS MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT (#94-EX0563):

NE 1/4, 19-05-68; SOUTH SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD 70 (EAST FIRST

STREET), 1/2 MILE WEST OF COUNTY ROAD 9E; 22.82 ACRES;

2 LOTS; FA-FARMING ZONING (10-24-94).

This is a request for Minor Residential Development to divide 22.82 acres into two lots of 20.5 acres and 2.29 acres for single family dwellings. Mr. Meehl provided the project and area description, noting that the site is located within the Loveland Urban Growth Area and adjacent to the city limits. He also reviewed the major concerns and issues, mainly that this site is in the Municipal Expansion Area and the existing septic system would be inconsistent with the Larimer County Land Use Plan. If this request is approved, the applicant has been advised by the Health Department that she will need a registered engineer's report to certify that all current standards have been met, or be required to put in an engineered septic system, or to connect to public sewer. Staff Findings are: 1) Approving the creation of a parcel with a septic system within the Municipal Expansion Area and adjacent to the city limits is not meeting the future needs of urban expansion and environmental concerns. It is creating a section of land which has less potential for annexation in the future; 2) Approval of this MRD, as proposed, does not appear to comply with the Larimer County Land Use Plan and is not in the best interests of the health, safety, and welfare of county residents; 3) Health and environmental concerns, such as wetlands and septic system use, have not been adequately addressed. The Staff recommendation is for denial of the Gardels Minor Residential Development.

Louise Gardels, applicant, addressed the Board and noted that the property in question has been in their family for over 100 years and she is just attempting to improve and upgrade the site. She described the property and noted she intends to replace the current abandoned house with a top-of-the-line modular home; she also indicated her willingness to upgrade the septic system and has no problem connecting with public sewer in the future; however, at this time the cost would be prohibitive. Much discussion followed; the Board indicated they would like to review comments from the City of Loveland concerning this item, to determine if it complies with the Loveland Comprehensive Plan, before making their final decision.



M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board table the Gardels Minor Residential Development (#94-EX0563) until November 14, 1994 to allow time for the Board to review comments from the City of Loveland and, in the meantime, direct staff to develop findings and conditions should the Board approve this item on that date.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

5. DEPPERSCHMIDT MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT

(#94-EX0566): NE 1/4, 26-05-69; WEST SIDE OF SOUTH GARFIELD

(COUNTY ROAD 15) 1/2 MILE SOUTH OF STATE HIGHWAY 402;

6.66 ACRES; 2 LOTS; FA-FARMING ZONING (10-24-94).

This is a request for a Minor Residential Development to divide 6.66 acres into two lots of .74 acres and 5.9 acres for single family dwellings; one dwelling exists on the 5.9 acre lot. Mr. Meehl noted for the record, as this information is not included in the staff report, that the applicant is going to reconfigure Lot #1 to 220 ft. by 110 ft., resulting in a 5.5 acre lot. Mr. Meehl provided the project and area description and reviewed the major concerns and issues, mainly that the configuration of the two lots would close off any access to the undeveloped three-quarters of the parcel and create an inaccessible island. Staff Findings include: 1) According to the Larimer County Land Use Plan, areas categorized as Municipal Expansion Area should expect general urban development which would be consistent with the Municipal Plan. If the MRD proposal is approved, it would hinder future growth by creating a section of inaccessible land in the Urban Growth Area of Loveland; 2) Current access problems exists; a 50-foot wide public right-of-way dedication would be required. In addition, a 20-foot wide paved road, with a bulb, would need to e completed from the road intersection to the new lot; 3) The Health Department has no objection to the proposal as long as public water and sewer will be utilized. The applicant has indicated that the residential structure would use both public services. The Staff recommendation is for denial of the Depperschmidt Minor Residential Development.

Mr. Burns stated that the applicant has been asked to dedicate a portion of the area for public access; the Board and applicant reviewed several maps of the area. It was noted that the City of Loveland has not submitted their report regarding this item; Mr. Meehl offered to meet with the City of Loveland planners to discuss this item, and the previous item, in an effort to expedite receiving the reports. Much discussion followed.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board table the Depperschmidt Minor Residential Development (#94-EX0566) until November 14, 1994 to allow time to review a report from the City of Loveland on how this land division will impact their Master Plan.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

6. BERTHOUD SUNSET QUARRY SPECIAL REVIEW (#94-ZR0501):

SE 1/4, 28-04-70; TWO MILES WEST OF COUNTY ROAD 27E, ONE

MILE NORTH OF THE BOULDER COUNTY LINE, TWO MILES

SOUTH OF CARTER LAKE; 190 ACRES; O-OPEN ZONING (10-24-94)

This is a request for Special Review to allow a sandstone quarry on 10 acres of a 190 acre parcel with an expected mining life of 30-50 years. Mr. White provided the project description and reviewed the major concern of access to the quarry, which is through a subdivision. Staff Findings are: 1) The proposal complies with the intent and purposes of the Zoning Resolution and the Comprehensive Land Use Plan; 2) The proposal is compatible with the rural nature of the area, and will not have a negative impact on other land uses or on property values in the area; 3) If developed and operated in accordance with the proposed conditions, the quarry will not impair the public health, welfare, property or safety.

The Planning Commission/Staff Recommendation is for approval of the Special Review, with the following conditions, as amended: 1) Except as provided below, all development, mining, and reclamation shall be consistent with Zoning File Exhibit A (Application for Zoning Action dated July 16, 1994); 2) Within 90 days of final approval, applicant shall provide evidence that permanent monumentation has been established to define the perimeters of the mining area. Mining activities shall not occur outside the posted area (including vehicle storage, maintenance, stockpiles, cutting, rubble piles, etc.); 3) The applicant is responsible for prompt, complete removal of any material which spills onto any roads used for hauling the stone; 4) No retail sales shall occur on this site; 5) This approval shall be null and void if, at any time after commencing operation, the subject mining operation substantially ceases for any period of three consecutive years; 6) Approval of the Special Review shall not become effective until the County Zoning Administrator verifies that there are no zoning violations existing on the applicant's property, particularly regarding junk vehicles, equipment, and materials; applicant is responsible for assuring that movement of the junk vehicles and materials does not result in a zoning violation on other properties controlled by the applicant; 7) The applicant will work with the County Engineering Department to come up with a schedule for maintaining the road; 8) The two quarries in the area will not operate concurrently.

After discussion of the concern regarding the access road, and Mr. Burns suggesting the benefit of working out a timely maintenance schedule for the road, it was decided that Mr. Burns will meet Mr. Sprague at the site and work out a maintenance plan. Neil Sprague stated that, in the past whenever they were using the road, they have improved and maintained it. Mr. Burns suggested that, in the future, the Spragues document the work they do on the road, noting the previous condition of the road and what they did to improve it and maintain it, so they can offer proof that their use of the road is not causing deterioration. With regard to the concern about two to four vehicle trips per day on the road, Ms. Sprague noted that this amount of traffic will occur only when they are operating the quarry, which will probably be only one-half of the 60 to 120 days a year as mentioned in the staff report. Commissioner Disney asked about reclamation of the site; Mr. White responded that this is a very remote area; however, mining and reclamation are addressed in condition #1. Ms. Sprague informed the Board that this quarry was purchased several years ago specifically for its color to enable them to fill orders for matching of stone, such as for the University of Colorado at Boulder. With regard to the condition requiring the junk vehicles to be removed from the property, Ms. Sprague noted that this has been accomplished. The vehicles have been moved by their owners to a site not owned by the Spragues; therefore, they do not have control over whether or not a zoning violation exists at that site. Mr. White suggested an amendment be added to condition #6 (above) to alleviate this concern for the Board.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and Planning Commission/Staff Recommendation and approve the Berthoud Sunset Quarry Special Review (#94-ZR0501), with the conditions as amended and outlined.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

The meeting adjourned at 11 a.m.

EMPLOYMENT & TRAINING SERVICES QUARTERLY MEETING

(#145 @ 2200 & #146)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in regular session with Joni Friedman, Director of Employment & Training Services. Chair Duvall presided and Commissioner Disney was present; as noted previously, Commissioner Hotchkiss will be out of town this week. Also present were: Lew Wymisner, Enterprise Zone Administrator; Jean Thomas, Chair Private Industry Council; and Frank Lancaster, County Manager. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

1. Private Industry Council Update: Ms. Thomas reported on the Employer's Roundtable held last week and on the special Roundtable held on October 12, 1994 for tax professionals on "How to Take Financial Advantage of the County's Enterprise Zone". A schedule was submitted to the Board of the upcoming Employee Roundtables through May, 1995. Ms. Thomas also reported on the statewide Job Training Partnership Conference recently held in Snowmass, which was coordinated by Larimer County and attended by over 450 people; she noted that Larimer County received a stipend for coordinating and administering this conference, which helped cover the cost for registration and housing of personnel from Larimer County.

2. Director's Report - Program Update: Ms. Friedman reported that the program is going well and they just completed the first quarter. She noted that Congress recently rescinded money (5%) from the youth programs, so they are looking at different partnerships to cover this loss. They are working with the Human Development Department, which is involved in a project with Public Service Company to do weatherization; they have two youths working on this project and are building it into an apprenticeship program for kids.

Ms. Friedman also reported that she is working with staff on defining their positions and looking at a different evaluation process; she is interested in the county looking at different compensation evaluation methods and offered her help with this process. She reported they are still working on customer service at ETS and she is interested in upgrading technology.

3. Enterprise Zone Update: Mr. Wymisner reported that this year's Symposium, attended by approximately 800 people, was sponsored by a $5,000 grant from Anheuser Busch. Also, the Department of Labor & Employment, through Partnership Through Job Service, picked up a substantial portion of the sponsorship in terms of direct mail costs and room rentals at the Lincoln Center; they also were able to utilize a marketing grant from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs through the Enterprise Zone Program to help defray expenses of the Symposium.

Mr. Wymisner noted that the workshop held on October 12, 1994, which was presented by representatives from the Colorado Department of Revenue talking about Enterprise Zone Tax Credits, was video taped through an arrangement he made with Columbine Cablevision; after editing, this video will be available for statewide use.

Mr. Wymisner reported he will be meeting with the Wellington Economic Development Council next week to discuss putting together some marketing brochures for Wellington. Mr. Wymisner noted that through a piece of legislation passed last year, the homeless shelters in Larimer County (Mission, New Bridges, and Crossroads) can access contributions thru the Enterprise Zone. He discussed future projects for funding for the Children's Clinic and the Women's Center for what they are doing with the Child-Care Consortium.

Discussion and questions from the Board followed; Commissioner Disney asked about the possibility of having a workshop or roundtable on how government officials can regain the trust of their constituents. Ms. Friedman suggested having a roundtable with the Board to provide an opportunity for others to ask questions of the Board. Chair Duvall asked if the aspect of an Enterprise Zone for agriculture has been considered.

Mr. Wymisner also reported that the Overall Economic Development Plan Committee, soon to be called the Larimer County Economic Development Advisory Committee, is meeting today to start a process to decide what should the county's role be with regard to economic development. Mr. Wymisner stated that even though there is recognition within the county, what does the public really know about what we do; we need to get information out to the public regarding what the county actually does in the community. After discussion, Chair Duvall asked Mr. Lancaster to work on a marketing plan for the county. Ms. Friedman suggested doing more in the elementary schools to educate the children about county activities. Chair Duvall suggested the county logo be used identifying all materials being sent out by the county so the public will be aware of all the good things the county does.

Ms. Friedman invited the Board to attend the annual recognition luncheon on December 13, 1994 sponsored by the Private Industry Council; more details will be forwarded to the Board later about the luncheon.

The meeting adjourned at 10:35 a.m.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1994

Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

1. RESOLUTION CONCERNING AMENDMENT 12: Mr. Gluckman presented a Resolution Concerning Amendment 12 and requested Board approval and the Chair's signature.

R94-134g RESOLUTION CONCERNING AMENDMENT 12

2. TURN OFF THE VIOLENCE PROCLAMATION - OCTOBER 27, 1994: District Attorney Stu VanMeveren requested the Board to proclaim October 27, 1994 as "Turn Off the Violence" Day, which is for the purpose of encouraging our community to resolve conflict by communicating, listening, and talking; by supporting, trusting, and respecting each other; by spending time together and affirming with praise, by strengthening our families through clear rules and high values; by using positive non-violent ways to resolve conflict; and by being aware of and selective concerning our choices in entertainment. Mr. VanMeveren noted this is the second year for "Turn Off the Violence Day"; last year they printed 6,000 brochures and this year over 22,000 brochures have already been distributed. Chair Duvall read the Proclamation aloud and thanked Mr. VanMeveren for his efforts in this endeavor.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board proclaim October 27, 1994 as "Turn Off the Violence Day" and authorize the Chair to sign the Proclamation.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

3. PASS-ON OF HUD SECTION 8 PROGRAM: Ms. Gillespie reminded the Board that in May of 1994, the Board recommended that the Department of Human Development continue to administer the HUD Section 8 Program until after the information generated by the Affordable Housing Information System became available. Recently, circumstances have made it clear that it would be best to pass-on the administration of this program to another existing housing authority by December 31, 1994. To accomplish this, HUD requires that a request for proposal be prepared and sent to at least three potential candidates; Ms. Gillespie requested Board authorization to proceed with drafting a request for proposal. Discussion followed.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board of County Commissioners authorize the Human Development Department to prepare a request for proposal for the contractual administration of the HUD Section 8 Program, as recommended by Ms. Gillespie.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

4. HUMAN DEVELOPMENT MOVE OUT OF ESTES PARK COMMON: Ms. Gillespie requested Board approval for the Department of Human Development in Estes Park to be relocated outside of the Estes Park Commons facility, noting that increasing demands on the office space in the common area have resulted in a tension-filled work environment. Also, Ms. Gillespie stated that they intend to expand their program by adding a community building project of some magnitude, which will consist of a volunteer clearing house and will allow them to become a repository of volunteer resources. The new location will be in a new building and will rent for $535 a month for 640 square feet of office space; Ms. Gillespie stated that this cost is reasonable and there is a clause in the lease that the County can be released from the lease with 90 days notice. Ms. Gillespie informed the Board that monies for this lease are available in the Community Service Block Grant budget. Discussion followed.


M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board approve the lease agreement for the relocation of the Human Development Department in Estes Park, monies to be derived from the CDBG budget, and authorize the Chair to sign same.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

A94-155 COMMERCIAL LEASE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE BOARD

OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AND JOHN E. AND PEGGY LEE

LYNCH (Office Space for Human Development in Estes Park)

5. CORONER'S SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET REQUEST: Mr. Keister stated that in reviewing the Coroner's budget to determine if his department will be returning money this year or need extra money, two items became evident which will require additional funds: 1) The Chief Investigator, Charles Lovato, has submitted his resignation, effective November 30, 1994. As there will only be one FTE in the department after that date to cover the county on a 24-hour, seven days per week schedule, Dr. Allen is requesting authorization to proceed through the hiring process for a replacement investigator, with the effective hiring date of November 15, 1994 to allow a two-week training and familiarization period. The two-week training period, plus the approximate two-month budget expenditure for payoff of Mr. Lovato's sick and vacation time accruals, will require additional monies of $6,227; also, 2) The number of autopsies budgeted for the year is estimated to be exceeded by 19, at an additional cost of $21,620. Therefore, the Coroner is asking for an increase to his budget in the amount of $27,847.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board authorize the expenditure of $27,847 to increase the Coroner's budget for 1994 to cover the cost of additional autopsies and for additional personnel in his department; these monies to be derived from the '94 carry over.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

6. REQUEST FOR APPROVAL AND SIGNATURE ON AN APPLICATION FOR HISTORICAL MINI-GRANT FOR BALDPATE INN: Commissioner Disney received a request from the Baldpate Inn for an endorsement from the Board of County Commissioners to be included with an application for a mini-grant from the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Historical Society, to allow the Baldpate Inn to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places.



M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board of County Commissioners endorse the Mini-Grant Application to the State Historical Fund for the designation of the Baldpate Inn to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and authorize the Chair to sign the endorsement.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

7. REQUEST FOR FUNDS FOR WELLINGTON ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BROCHURE: Mr. Gluckman stated that the Board has received a request for financial assistance ($250 up to $1,000) from the Wellington Economic Development Commission for developing and printing of an informational brochure to represent the Greater Wellington Area and to be used as a marketing tool/lure. After discussion, the Board declined to take action on this request until they receive feedback regarding how the $2,000 contribution was spent which the county previously gave to Wellington for the Culture Center.

8. APPOINTMENT TO FORT COLLINS COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN: Mr. Gluckman stated that a memo has been received from Ms. Cottingham indicating her intention to step down from the position as the Board's liaison to the Fort Collins Commission on the Status of Women, in order to enable her to focus her energies on the County's growing requirements for automation services. Ms. Cottingham recommended that Debra Ruybal-Mascarenaz be appointed as her replacement.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board appoint Debra Ruybal-Mascarenaz to represent Larimer County on the Fort Collins Commission on the Status of Women, to fill the unexpired two-year term, ending May 31, 1995, of Ms. Cottingham.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

9. APPOINTMENT TO THE EMERGENCY TELEPHONE AUTHORITY BOARD: A memo was received from Sheriff Shockley stating that as of December 31, 1994, he will have served two consecutive terms on the Larimer Emergency Telephone Authority Board, and in accordance with the Intergovernmental Agreement, is no longer eligible to serve on the LETA Board. Therefore, Sheriff Shockley recommended that the Board select Ms. Elizabeth Lowes to be his replacement to represent Larimer County.





M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board appoint Elizabeth Lowes to represent Larimer County on the Emergency Telephone Authority Board for a two-year term effective December 31, 1994 and ending December 30, 1996, as recommended by Sheriff Shockley.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

10. WORKSESSION:

-- Northern Colorado Triangle Group Request: During the worksession on October 18, 1994 regarding a request to the Board for $6,000 from the northern Colorado Triangle Group, which is working on a land use plan, the Board requested more clarification about the project before approving the request. In answer to some of the questions raised by the Board, Mr. Gluckman reported that if this project is entered into, it will enhance the chance for receiving Kellogg Foundation funds, and he noted all the communities in the area will be participating in this project. Also, the only connection with Windsor is that they are the "pass thru" for the monies and are not going to be involved directly. In addition to the request for $6,000, they are also asking that a staff person be assigned to attend monthly meetings After discussion, the Board decided that their participation in this group would show a good-will faith gesture for regional planning; however, the Board directed Mr. Gluckman to have a letter accompany the allocation which emphasizes the Board's focus on implementation and use and their desire to go beyond the study and work towards the Kellogg Foundation activity. The Board also directed Mr. Gluckman to talk to Mr. MacFarlane, Parks Director, about selecting a staff person for this project.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board authorize the expenditure of $5,891 to the northern Colorado Triangle Group, funds to be derived from the Commissioner's Special Projects Fund.

Motion carried 2 - 0.
