21-05-69; WEST SIDE OF NAMAQUA ROAD, SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 34,

WEST OF LOVELAND; .93 ACRES; 1 LOT; FA-FARMING ZONING

(12-27-94).

This is a request to vacate an existing utility easement to correct an encroachment. Staff Findings include: 1) Sunnyslope Acres Third Filing was approved in 1972; 2) The Final Plat includes ten-foot utility easements along most of the lot lines; 3) A metal building was constructed on this lot which encroaches about six feet into the utility easement on the north line of Lot 4, Block 2; 4) The County Health and Engineering Departments and all utilities serving this area reviewed the proposed vacation and there were no objections.

The Staff Recommendation is for approval of the request to vacate six feet of the ten-foot utility easement along the north line of Lot 4, Block 2, Sunnyslope Acres Third Filing, with the condition that the applicant provide a written legal description of the easement being vacation. The description shall be signed and sealed by a licensed surveyor.

08-05-69; NORTH OF HIGHWAY 34, WEST OF LOVELAND;

FA-1 FARMING ZONING(12-27-94)

This is a request to vacate an existing utility easement. Staff Findings are: 1) Namaqua Hills First Filing was amended in 1978. The plat included utility easements along the lot lines. No utilities were placed in the easement along the west line of Lot 23; 2) When sewer lines were constructed in this area, new easements were acquired to accommodate them. The old easements were not vacated; 3) The County Health and Engineering Departments reviewed the proposed easement vacation and stated no objections; 4) The City of Loveland does not oppose the vacation, but they would like to have a tree relocated along the east lot line to facilitate maintenance of the sewer lines.

The Staff Recommendation is for approval of the request to vacate the utility easement along the west line of Lot 23, Namaqua Hills Amended Plat, with the condition that the tree along the ease lot line be relocated, as requested by the City of Loveland.

This is a request to reconfigure four existing lots resulting in three building sites. Staff Findings include: 1) Kel-Mar Strip Second Filing was approved in 1968; 2) The long, narrow configuration of the lots severely limits the ability to build on these lots; 3) The County Health and Engineering Departments reviewed the proposed Amended Plat and stated no objections; 4) The utility companies serving this area reviewed the proposed Amended Plat and requested that all existing easements remain in place.

The Staff Recommendation is for approval of the Amended Plat of Lots 26 and 27, Kel-Mar Strip Second Filing and Lots 1 and 2 of the Amended Plat of Lots 28 and 29, Kel-Mar Strip Second Filing, with the condition that the applicant's engineer make every effort to search the public record to determine the width and location of any existing easements on this site and show these easements on the Amended Plat.
