PROCEEDINGS OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

MONDAY, JUNE 19, 1995

SUBDIVISIONS

(#305, #306 & #308)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:00 a.m. in regular session with John Barnett, Director of Planning. Chair Disney presided; Commissioners Clarke and Duvall were present. Also present were: Russ Legg, Chief Planner; Al Kadera, Subdivision Administrator; Jerry White, Zoning Administrator; Rob Helmick, Planner II; Rex Burns and Harry Lynam, Engineering; Jerry Blehm, Director of Environmental Health; and Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

Chair Disney noted that the following are consent items and will not be discussed in detail unless requested by the Commissioners or members of the audience.

1. GLEN HAVEN SUBDIVISION LOT 44, BLOCK 9 AMENDED PLAT

(#95-SA0719): 34-06-72; .49 ACRES; 1 LOT; E1-ESTATE ZONING (6-19-95)

This is a request to add an adjacent parcel to the subdivision lot to accommodate a new garage. Staff Findings include: 1) Glen Haven Subdivision was platted in 1913; 2) Many of the lots are very small and the terrain makes it difficult to meet the setback requirements and utilize the existing lots; 3) This request is to enlarge Lot 44, Block 9, by adding some adjacent land; the south line of this lot will be moved about 25 feet to the south to allow construction of a garage within the required 25 foot setback requirement. The Staff Recommendation is for approval of the proposed Amended Plat of Lot 44, Block 9, Glen Haven Subdivision.

2. WESTERN MINI RANCHES EASEMENT VACATION (#95-SA0713):

29-04-69; 3401 BRANDING IRON WAY, LOT 6, BLOCK 2, WESTERN

MINI RANCHES; 2.14 ACRES; 1 LOT; FA1-FARMING ZONING (6-19-95)

This is a request to vacate a platted 10-foot utility easement along the northwest side of the lot. Staff Findings are: 1) Western Mini Ranches was platted in 1979; 2) The proposed vacation is only of a portion of the easement; utilities have been installed in this subdivision and the easement is not needed; 3) The County Health and Engineering Departments and all utilities serving this area reviewed the proposed vacation and have stated no objections. The Staff Recommendation is for approval of the vacation of the utility easement located on the west side of Lot 6, Block 2, Western Mini Ranches, with the condition that the applicant shall furnish a written description of the easement being vacated; this description shall be signed and sealed by a licensed surveyor.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and Staff Recommendations and approve the Glen Haven Subdivision, Lot 44, Block 9 Amended Plat (#95-SA0719) and the Western Mini Ranches Easement Vacation (#95-SA0713); each, with conditions as outlined.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

3. A-1 WILDWATER RIVER RAFTING ZONING VIOLATION:

Mr. White apprised the Board of a possible zoning violation by A-1 Wildwater River Rafting on the Pine Vu property in Poudre Canyon; he noted the business is using this site for launching of their river rafts. Mr. White stated that he has received a number of calls from neighbors regarding safety and serious human health concerns. Mr. White noted he sent a letter to Mr. Breckenridge, owner of the business, on June 15, 1995 stating that the activity he is conducting requires Special Review approval by the Board of County Commissioners and lack of such approval constitutes a violation of the zoning regulations; Mr. White asked the Board if they would like to proceed with legal action on this matter at this time.

Tracy Smith, who lives 100 yards from the property, reported to the Board that there have been a number of meetings with approximately 50 property owners in the area in attendance about this problem and they are all opposed to the commercial use on this property; and he noted also there is an additional concern regarding trespassing by the rafters across a private bridge to private property. Ms. Haag advised the Board that the county could apply for a temporary restraining order to require Mr. Breckenridge to discontinue operations until he obtains Special Review approval. Discussion followed.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Clarke moved that the Board of County Commissioners authorize Staff to continue negotiations with Mr. Breckenridge regarding this issue until June 26, 1995; if at that time no resolution to this problem has been accomplished, the County Attorney is authorized to proceed with legal action to enforce the provisions of the Zoning Regulations.

Motion carried 3 - 0.


4. SPRING CREEK RANCH MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT

AMENDED (#95-EX0710): 22-08-69; SOUTHEAST CORNER OF

COUNTY ROADS 19 & 56; 40.28 ACRES; RE-RURAL ESTATE ZONING;

(6-19-95)

This is a request to change a condition of approval on the Spring Creek Ranch Minor Residential Development to allow a photography studio on a lot that is currently limited to single family uses. Mr. Helmick reviewed the request and major concerns and issues, noting that the proposed use would include two elements which are in conflict with the definition of a home occupation: 1) An employee who is not a resident, and 2) The addition to the barn where the studio would be located. At this time, Commissioner Clarke disclosed that he has been in the photography business for the past 25 years and wondered if he might not have a conflict of interest as there is some overlapping in their businesses; however, he stated he feels he can make an objective decision but will withdraw from voting on this issue if anyone thinks there is a conflict. As no one voiced an objection to Commissioner Clarke voting on this issue, he will participate in the hearing and decision process for this item. Staff Findings include: 1) The requirement and condition of Minor Residential Development approval allowing only single family residential use was established at the time the Minor Residential Development process was created in 1985; the condition has been uniformly applied to all MRD's since that time; 2) This Minor Residential Development was approved in 1991 and the condition was made a part of the approval and is found on the face of the plat; 3) The MRD process was created limiting the uses to be included in a Minor Residential Development; a full subdivision or zoning would more fully explore these issues. The Planning Staff has consistently recommended denial of all MRD appeals because the policy was established by the Board of County Commissioners; therefore, Staff recommends denial of this appeal. Staff would note that the applicants have also made application to the Board of Appeals for a special exception variance to allow the use; 4) This site is not distinguished from any other Minor Residential Development lot by the applicant, except this is where they wish to live. There is no compelling physical or environmental characteristic which suggests this lot would be better for this use than any other; 5) The applicant will only be eliminating a portion of his total trips, those to his Fort Collins office; however, the employee will have to travel to this site rather than to town; 6) It does not appear that any noise, dust, odor or other nuisance would be created by this particular use. The Staff Recommendation is for denial of the requested removal of the condition requiring only single family residential use for Lot 2, Spring Creek Ranch Minor Residential Development.

Lucia Liley, attorney representing the applicants, addressed the Board and stated that this hearing is a detour in the lengthy process of trying to work within the county system to be able to use the property, both as a residence and as a part-time photography studio; she stated that the applicants have been very conscientious to insure that the intended use will be a legal approved use in the county. Ms. Liley further noted that will be no signage of any kind on the site and the addition to the barn will be to the south where the property slopes by 15 feet, so the addition will be visually minimized. Ms. Liley informed the Board that all four owners of the MRD have signed a consent form and recommend approval and what is needed today from the Board is approval for the O'Hara's to continue on to the BOA where the ultimate decision will be made about whether or not this is an appropriate variance of the definition for home occupations. Tim O'Hara, applicant, stated that he does commercial photography for advertising, public relations, and industrial applications; he does not do portraits or weddings which would contribute to traffic coming to their home. Mr. O'Hara submitted photos to the Board showing the characteristics of the neighborhood and the property. Jerry Campbell, who lives two miles from the site, stated he feels there are plenty of other buildings for the applicant's business and he doesn't think this use is appropriate.

At this time, the public portion of the hearing was closed and discussion among the Board followed; the Board concurred that the issue of home occupations needs to be addressed when developing the Partnership Land Use System (PLUS).

M O T I O N

Commissioner Clarke moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Spring Creek Ranch Minor Residential Development Amendment (#95-EX0710) to change the condition of approval to allow a photography studio on a lot that is currently limited to single family uses, contingent upon approval of the Board of Adjustment that this is considered a home occupation.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

5. ASPEN ACRES MOBILE HOME PARK (#94-ZR0516): NE 1/4

11-04-69; WEST OF U.S. 287, NORTH OF COUNTY ROAD 10E AND

EAST OF THE BERTHOUD RESERVOIR; 20.74 ACRES; 136 LOTS;

M1-MULTIPLE FAMILY ZONING (6-19-95)

This is a request for Special Review to create a 136 space mobile home park. Mr. White reviewed the background, described the project, and reviewed the major concerns and issues, including a reverse compatibility issue, site design, minimal amount of space for children's play area, utilities and service, access and drainage. Mr. White noted the applicant is requesting a waiver to not build Clayton Drive according to county urban standards. Staff Findings are: 1) The proposed development complies with the intent and purposes of the County Zoning Resolution, the Comprehensive Land Use Plan, the County Mobile Home Resolution, and the interim Intergovernmental Agreement with Berthoud; 2) The proposal is generally harmonious with the surrounding neighborhood; 3) The proposal will have no negative impact on the surrounding area, or on property values in the area; 4) If developed and operated pursuant to the recommended conditions, the proposal will not impair the public health, welfare, prosperity, or safety by creating undesirable traffic congestion, undesirable sanitary conditions, overburdening of utilities, or adverse environmental influences in the area; 5) The Berthoud Town Board has recommended denial of the project; 6) All review agency comments of a technical nature have been addressed by the plan or conditions.

The Staff/Planning Commission Recommendation is for denial of the request to waive the County Urban Street Standards, and approval of the Special Review for a mobile home park, with the following conditions: 1) Unless otherwise required by the following conditions, all development and use shall be consistent with Zoning File Exhibit A (application for Zoning Action, including all plans and drawings, and the "Aspen Acres Supplemental data" dated April 27, 1995); 2) The developer is responsible for completion of the following: public water, public sewer, electricity, telephone, landscaping as shown on approved plan, bus stop, playground equipment, fire hydrants, detention ponds, emergency access as required by Berthoud Fire Department, and all drainage and access improvements as described in the memo from the County Engineering Department dated February 8, 1995; all improvements are to be in place before any dwelling units are placed on the property; 3) The developer shall place in escrow $5,000 for future railroad crossing, and $10,000 for future improvements to Highway 287/County Road 10E intersection, as indicated in the February 8, 1995 memo from the County Engineering Department; escrow agreement to be approved by the County Attorney; 4) Deed of dedication to be provided for Clayton Place right-of-way; 5) Payment of park fee as required by the Town of Berthoud, upon application for park construction permit; 6) Within 60 days of final approval, developer shall submit a signed Annexation Agreement, and commitments for public water and public sewer; 7) Street names shall be amended, as required by emergency services providers; 8) A hold harmless agreement shall be provided in a form acceptable to the County Attorney. The applicant will provide and maintain a 10 million dollar indemnification policy for failure of the dam, on behalf of Larimer County and the Town of Berthoud; 9) If the park is not in operation within three years of final approval, Larimer County may revoke the Special Review approval; 10) The plan shall be revised to provide for off-road parking for mail kiosk; 11) Prior to issuance of a construction permit, the developer shall submit a plan for maintenance of Clayton Place, acceptable to County Engineering; 12) The developer is responsible for maintenance of internal streets, and the two detention ponds. No use of the drainage easements shall occur which impedes the function of those easements; 13) The developer agrees to provide twelve months advance written notice to all tenants, in the event a change of use is proposed for the property; this shall be binding on all future property owners; 14) Mobile homes, sheds, garages, and all other structures shall be placed on the property only in conformance with Larimer County Building Department requirements and permits. No such structures shall be located within the easement for the water and sewer mains; 15) Prior to issuance of a park permit, provide evidence of compliance with all requirements of the Colorado Department of Transportation; 16) Dedication of utility easements requested by Public Service Company; 17) Recommendations of the Colorado Geological Survey shall be followed in construction of roads and utilities; 18) Fire protection facilities, as required by the Berthoud Fire Protection District, shall be in place prior to issuance of any permits for structures or mobile homes on the site; 19) Within 90 days of final approval, the applicant and Champion Homes shall provide a plan for approval of the Planning Director regarding storage of Champion Mobile Homes located outside the right-of-way of Clayton Place; 20) Within 90 days of final approval, the applicant shall provide for approval of the County Engineer and State Engineer a dam break impact study. Any resultant recommendation for dam protection or improvement shall be the responsibility of the applicant with the consent of the reservoir owner.

Chair Disney asked about the installation of a railroad warning system; Mr. Lynam responded that the developer is being asked to escrow funds for this structure and if this project is approved, they will apply to the Public Utilities Commission for Federal funds to construct a warning system at the crossing and the developer is being asked to pay one half the cost. Chair Disney raised the concern of the possibility of the dam breaking; Mr. Burns discussed this issue in the terms of probability, noting there is less than a 1% chance of that happening. Chair Disney also suggested that a note be placed on the Final Plat and in the covenants advising future residents that there are existing industrial uses adjacent to the property, which create noise, dust, etc. and Larimer County will do nothing to hinder or cause them to cease operations.

Dave Shupe of Landmark Engineering, representing the applicant, addressed the two areas in which the applicant and staff still have some disagreement--access and the possibility of the dam-breaking; he noted that originally the access proposed was directly onto Highway 287; however, they now have explored the potential for access on 10E to the west. Mr. Shupe noted that Clayton Place serves as the primary access to the two industrial uses which lie to the west of this property and there is a real need for employee parking. In order to alleviate some of the parking problems should this project be approved, they have proposed an off-set parallel parking plan outside the curb line for the Titan employees and they are requesting this deviation from the normal county standards. Mr. Shupe also discussed the requirement that the road be improved the whole distance to the north property line on Clayton Place rather than just to their entrance; he offered to bring the road on the north of the park out to Clayton Place rather than extending the proposed stub to the north. With regard to the dam-breaking situation, Mr. Shupe reviewed a report from the State Memorandum of Hydrologic Review which indicated that the possibility of this dam breaking is in the 10,000-year storm realm of probability. Mr. Shupe noted that there is an abundance of utility suppliers, as the area can be supplied with water by the Little Thompson Water District and the Town of Berthoud and electricity can be supplied by REA and Public Service Company.

Consultant Craig White addressed the Board with regard to the need for this type of housing in Larimer County; he stated that his firm, Craig White Associates, are specialists in the development and operation of manufactured home communities and would be responsible for the property management of the community.

Dennis Hall, owner of Front Range Housing, addressed the Board and stated that the need for affordable housing in Larimer County is critical and he supports approval of Aspen Acres Mobile Home Park. The following persons addressed the Board neither in support or in opposition to the request, only to raise concerns: Conrad Johnson, Jerry Campbell, and Earl Birdland: Questions raised were: 1) Is this site appropriate? 2) Who will be responsible for maintenance and aesthetics of the parking area? 3) Will the future residents of this area be made aware of the mixed usage that is allowed north of the site? and 4) How can the corporation speak for future residents of the mobile home park? Craig Caulkins, General Manager Titan Homes (name recently changed to Summit Crest Homes) wanted to state for public record that their facility may grow in the future and they are considering the possibility of a second shift from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m.; he requested assurance from the Board that he will not have problems going to the second shift. The following persons spoke in opposition to the proposal: Sam Sterkel, Tom Nickel, Kay Carter, Joanne Nickel, and Mayor of Berthoud Dick Strang; they noted concerns of standing high water and poor drainage on the site, incapacity of Berthoud Sewer System to handle additional homes, increased traffic, poor visibility of access onto Highway 287, impact on schools, flooding, etc. Mr. Strang reiterated that the recommendation from the Berthoud Town Board was for denial of this request based on all of the issues raised today and because both they and the county are currently working on a land use plan for this area, and the incompatibility of the mobile home park with the surrounding uses were their main reasons for denial. In response to a question from Commissioner Duvall regarding supplying water to the site, Mayor Strang indicated that if the Town of Berthoud is going to provide sewer service to the development, they would like to supply the water also and with their 5-year improvement plan, they will have the capacity to supply both services.

Dave Shupe responded to the concerns raised as follows: 1) The corporation can speak for future occupants because this will be a leased mobile home park--the residents will lease the land and they will only own their dwelling and, therefore, will be subject to the rules and regulations of the owner of the land; 2) The parking configuration will be within the 60 ft. right-of-way and will not affect the adjacent property; 3) The applicant has a buffering landscaping plan to mitigate noise from the industry; 4) Sub-drainage and surface drainage will be provided; 5) The children going to the bus stop will not be using Highway 287; 6) Sewer is adequate; 7) Impact on schools will be minimal; 8) A traffic impact study was conducted on the three access roads and a right-turn lane off 287 onto CR 10E will be designed and constructed when this project is approved; 9) In terms of land use and compatibility, this land is zoned for this purpose and has been since 1969.

At this time the public comment portion of the hearing was closed and opened for Commissioner's comments: Commissioner Clarke stated that based on what we require in terms of engineering, site design, etc., those issues can be addressed and even though new land use planning is being drafted, the county cannot hold people accountable for what is not in place and this proposal meets all the requirements now in place; he is in favor of the 2nd point of access on the north end of the project and if this type of housing is going to be approved anywhere in Larimer County, this is the place. Commissioner Duvall stated that this seems like an improper place for a multiple family zone; she acknowledged that there is a tremendous need for affordable housing in Larimer County but she thinks it would be irresponsible for the Board to approve this request because of the dam, surrounding industries, the isolation of the site and transportation costs for the residents. Chair Disney is concerned about potential conflicts between residential and commercial uses and the railroad crossing is still a concern; in response to a question about the maintenance of the parking area, Chair Disney was assured it will be maintained by the developer. More discussion followed.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Clarke moved that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and Staff/Planning Commission Recommendation and approve the Special Review for the Aspen Acres Mobile Home Park (#94-ZR0516), with the conditions as outlined and to include changes as described by the applicant to design parking along Clayton Road with a 10-ft. travel lane in each direction and a 7-ft. parallel parking area on the east side, a rolled-over gutter on the west side with the 7 ft. that would normally be within the right-of-way, added on to provide head-in parking for the balance of the right-of-way; Clayton Drive be extended the full length of the project to the north; a second point of ingress and egress be provided at the north end of the project; potential tenants of the area be notified of the surrounding industrial uses and Larimer County will support the continuation of such uses, which may include 24-hour operations; an automated warning system must be installed at the railroad crossing prior to occupancy of the mobile home sites; water service to be provided by the Town of Berthoud; and approve the waiver of the county urban street standards in that section along Clayton Road as described above.

Motion carried 2 - 1; Commissioner Duvall dissenting because she is in agreement with the Town of Berthoud who voted against this proposal 6 - 2.

6. CONTINENTAL NORTH 1ST FILING AMENDED PLAT (#95-SA0716):

30 & 31-07-69; WEST SIDE OF HORSETOOTH RESERVOIR;

12.32 ACRES; 37 LOTS; O-OPEN ZONING (6-19-95)

This is a request to consolidate 27 lots into 10 lots. Mr. Legg described the request and suggested an amendment to Condition #5 as agreed to by the applicant. Staff Findings include: 1) Continental North 1st Filing was approved in 1971; 2) A building permit hold was placed on certain lots in the development in 1986 due to geologic concerns regarding the large number of lots and drainage; 3) The Amended Plat will significantly reduce the number of buildable lots, provide needed drainage easements, and place additional building restrictions on the property.

The Staff Recommendation is for approval of the Amended Plat of Continental North 1st Filing, with the following notes on the Plat: 1) The new lots created by this action are subject to the same restrictions, covenants and regulations as set forth in the plat of record of Continental North Subdivision 1st Filing; 2) The building permit hold shall be lifted; 3) All easements shown along vacated property lines are to remain; all easements are shown 10' wide on each side of property lines; 4) Detailed site development plans including foundation design, building access, utility connection, grading and drainage improvements, prepared by a Colorado Registered Professional Engineer shall be approved prior to obtaining a building permit on any lot in this subdivision; 5) Explosive devices shall only be used in accordance with an approved blasting plan prepared in accordance with the recommendations of the geological report; 6) No fill or cut slopes shall be constructed on any lots which are steeper than 3 horizontal and 1 vertical; such slopes shall be revegetated using native grass seed within 6 months of beginning construction; 7) All driveway cuts will be constructed with adequate culverts to convey the storm runoff identified in the drainage report.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and Staff Recommendation and approve the Continental North First Filing Amended Plat (#95-SA0716), with conditions as amended.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

7. ROCKVIEW PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT AND REZONING

REHEARING (#94-MS0575): 33-07-69; SOUTH SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD

38E, 3/4 MILE WEST OF COUNTY ROAD 19 (TAFT HILL ROAD);

10.43 ACRES; 20 LOTS; FA-1 FARMING EXISTING ZONING (6-19-95)

This is a request to divide 10.4 acres into 20 lots of 8,717 sq. ft. to 24,254 sq. ft. for single family dwellings with 4.15 acres of open space and rezoning from FA-1 Farming to R-Residential; at Concept Technical Review this project was called McKinley Property Subdivision (#94-SU0510). Mr. Legg noted this proposal was heard and denied by the Board of County Commissioners on December 5, 1994; following several meetings with the applicant, attorneys, and the developers of the two adjacent subdivisions regarding the reimbursement and maintenance issues, off-site roads, annexation, etc., on April 19, 1995, the Board approved a request for a rehearing of the proposal with amended conditions. Staff Findings are: 1) The proposed Planned Unit Development, with its significant concentration of private open space, is consistent with the Amended Foothills Plan designation, the Planned Unit Development Resolution, and with the proposed R-Residential Zoning of the site; 2) The Fort Collins City Council approved the Off-site Waiver Request; 3) Approval of the proposed development, with the following conditions, will not result in any significant negative impacts on surround property, utility services, transportation facilities or the natural environment.

The Staff/Urban Growth Area Review Board Recommendations are for: 1) Approval of the Master Plan for Rockview Planned Unit Development, with the following conditions: 1) The Master Plan will expire June 19, 1999, unless the Final Plat has been recorded for the development; 2) All future submittals shall be in conformance with the approved Master Plan as conditioned by this approval. 2) Approval of the Rezoning request from FA-1 Farming to R-Residential, with the following condition: 1) The property zoning shall not change from FA-1 Farming to R-Residential until the date the Final Plat is recorded for the Rockview Planned Unit Development. 3) Approval for the Waiver for Off-site road requirements of the Urban Growth Area, with the following conditions: 1) The full Off-site Road Waiver of $700 per lot shall be paid at the time of Plat recording; 2) All safety improvements to County Road 38E identified in the traffic study shall be completed by plan and included in the Subdivision Improvements Agreement and the turning movement lanes on County Road 38E shall be ensured; 3) A per lot road fee shall be collected at building permit stage equal to the estimated cost of improving County Road 38E adjacent to Rockview; 4) A note shall be added to the Final Plat and placed in the title policy that property owners in Rockview Planned Unit Development shall participate in any special improvement district formed for future road improvements in the area or on the property. 4) Approval of the Preliminary Plat for Rockview Planned Unit Development, with the following conditions: 1) The Final Plat shall be completed in strict conformance with the conditionally approved Preliminary Plat, including all notes; 2) All concerns of the reviewing agencies, and specifically the County Engineer, the County Drainage Administrator, the Poudre Fire Authority, and the utility districts shall be addressed by approved construction plans, approved cost estimates, and appropriate collateral prior to scheduling the Final Plat approval with the Board of County Commissioners; 3) Final Plat documents shall include an over lot grading plan and a reseeding plan, calculations for sizing of the detention ponds, and a final landscape plan. Collateral shall include installation of the landscaping material, irrigation systems, and erosion control/dust control plans. These plans shall be forwarded to the City of Fort Collins for review and comments; 4) Internal subdivision roads shall be constructed to full Larimer County Urban Standards to County Road 38E with underground utilities and street lights; 5) An architectural review committee shall review colors, roofs, and maintenance responsibilities of common elements. Perimeter fences shall be of the type approved in advance by the architectural review committee and shall be made of wood. Privacy fences shall be located only in side yards, as approved by the architectural review committee. Fences along the back lot lines shall be of pocket, shadow box, or split rail design and shall not exceed 4 feet in height; 6) School fees of $8 per lot shall be collected with the Final Plat and a $25 Recording Application Fee shall be paid; 7) An annexation agreement shall be signed and recorded as required by the Intergovernmental Agreement with Fort Collins; 8) The following notes shall appear on the Final Plat: A) Engineered foundation plans shall be required for all construction on this site; B) The Larimer County Park Drainage Fees (as calculated by the applicants engineer) shall be collected at the building permit stage; C) Set backs shall be denoted on all lots; D) Passive radon mitigation systems shall be required at building permit stage and after radon testing occurs if the results exceed EPA standards, then the system shall be modified to an Active System; E) Residential sprinkler systems are required unless exempt by the Fire Authority; 9) The Final Plat shall indicate that the open space is a blanket utility easement; fifteen (15) feet utility easements shall be placed adjacent to all lot lines and roads; 10) The applicant shall be required to notify the Assessor when the Final Plat is recorded; this notification is required by State Statute and is intended to ensure that the open space tract value is pro-rated among the lots to avoid a separate tax bill for open space. This notification shall be in writing and include a copy of the Final Plat as recorded. The applicant will need to submit quit-claim deeds for the open space tracts deeding them to the established homeowners Association; such deeds will be recorded with the Final Plat; 11) Road maintenance agreements for Rockview Subdivision should be provided with the Final Plat.

Lucia Liley, attorney representing the applicant, thanked the Board for rehearing this proposal and for consideration of new information and clarification of some incomplete evidence from the last hearing; she noted that the two key issues were the intersection of County Road 38E and Taft Hill Road and Drake and Taft. Ms. Liley informed the Board that Matt Delich, traffic engineer, did an addendum to an earlier traffic study and specifically looked at the intersection of CR 38E and Taft Hill Road and found that with the improvements of the left-turn lane on CR 38E, that intersection could handle the traffic from Fox Hills, Wildflower Ridge, and Rockview and operate at a level of service B, and in the long-range at a level of C. Ms. Liley further stated that with regard to the Drake and Taft intersection, a new traffic study has been done and currently, with no further improvements, the intersection operates at level of service D at peak hours; however, she noted that capital improvements are being designed for this intersection and construction will begin in late spring of 1996, and level of service will improve from D to C. Matt Delich submitted additional information to the Board and noted that using the current traffic count done by the City of Fort Collins, it is estimated that Rockview will add only 2/10 of 1% of the entering trips to the intersections.

Chair Disney noted for the record that when this proposal was heard previously, the information the Board had was that the level of service at the Taft and Drake intersection was at E and gridlock; subsequent to that hearing, new information has been received from the City of Fort Collins informing the Board of planned improvements for the intersection. Commissioner Duvall apologized to Mr. Storck, the developer, for the inconvenience caused him.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and Staff/Urban Growth Area Review Board Recommendations and approve the Rockview Planned Unit Development and Rezoning (#94-MS0575), with the conditions as outlined.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

The meeting recessed at 1:10 p.m.

MEETING WITH DIRECTOR OF COOPERATIVE EXTENSION

(#309)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 1:30 p.m. in regular session with the Director of Cooperative Extension Laurel Kubin. Chair Disney presided; Commissioners Clarke and Duvall were present. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

Chair Disney stated that the purpose of today's meeting with Ms. Kubin was to discuss the proposed changes in Colorado Cooperative Extension in response to a letter Chair Disney received from Kervin Knox, Associate Provost for Agriculture and Public Service and Dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences, in which he was responding to concerns raised by the Commissioners about the proposed changes and that there would be one regional office to serve several counties, such as, Boulder, Weld, Morgan, and Larimer. Mr. Knox noted in his letter that after visiting over 30 counties in the state to discuss the proposed changes, they learned that this concept was not met with favor; instead, county agents will be asked to take on a specialty area and serve as a resource person to neighboring counties. Ms. Kubin expressed some concern with using technological-based delivery of information more and more and working less and less with individuals one on one. Another concern of Ms. Kubin's is the time commitment of staff - they currently rely on several different volunteer programs to help them extend the education, but as they specialize or take on specialty areas and serve as the resource person to coordinate specific training in surrounding counties, this will take time to build networks with the other agencies in those counties. Chair Disney suggested that there be guidelines set up so the resource person will know that their first allegiance is to their own county.

Commissioner Duvall thanked Ms. Kubin and Mr. Hamblen for the great job they did with the Future Agriculture Meeting held recently and asked if they have had any feedback from it. Ms. Kubin noted that Mr. Hamblen did a compilation of comments from the meeting and they thought it was a great opportunity for people to have an opportunity to express some of their concerns about agriculture; they are going to try and involve these people in every possible way in the remainder of the land use planning process. Chair Disney suggested the possibility of setting up an agricultural council to serve as an advisory board to the Commissioners; Commissioner Duvall suggested having some ag representatives on the Economic Development Board and Environmental Advisory Board. Ms. Kubin recommended that if an ag council is formed, it should be a Task Force at first and set up on a short term basis and she would like to have educational input into it. Ms. Kubin will meet with Bob Hamblen and Director of Planning John Barnett to develop a time frame for an Agriculture Task Force; Commissioner Duvall asked Ms. Kubin to focus on helping the Board with their high priority of maintaining an economic agriculture livelihood in Larimer County.

The meeting recessed at 2:20 p.m.

STANDING MEETING WITH DIRECTOR OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

(#309 @ 2100 & #310)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 2:30 p.m. in regular session with Ginny Riley, Director of Human Development. Chair Disney presided; Commissioners Clarke and Duvall were present. Also present were: Carol Gillespie, Community Development Director; Shelley McGraw, Director Office on Aging; Lyn Thor, Senior Chuckwagon Nutrition Program Director; Wayne Buhlig, Weatherization Director; and Frank Lancaster, County Manager. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

Ms. Riley stated that the purpose of today's meeting is to provide an update for the Board on some of the program activities in the department and she requested the team leaders of the program teams to each give a report:

Community Development: Ms. Gillespie reported on the Information Referral System (IRS) Consortium and Affordable Housing Information System; she noted that the IRS is a system to identify the needs in the community with regard to affordable housing and housing stock. Ms. Gillespie stated that a consortium was formed of interested parties for the analysis and funding was attracted from various sectors in the community; a preliminary report of the analysis will be presented soon. Ms. Gillespie noted that with the housing stock analysis, they have run into an unexpected problem in that they expected certain information from the Assessor's Office to develop a GIS format; however, the Assessor doesn't have the data they need. Ms. Gillespie reported to the Board that Loni Van Eck, Housing Development Specialist, resigned in April; however, they have hired someone else very skilled in this area and are moving forward with the AHIS project. Ms. Gillespie reported that requests for proposals were sent out for the I & R System; Helpline submitted a comprehensive proposal for both the computerized data base and services and their proposal will be reviewed by the consortium tomorrow.

Office on Aging: Ms. McGraw reported on two new programs: 1) Funding for Women's Center to supplement dental care for older adults with low income - 24 people have received care so far; 2) Fall Prevention - the Health Department is training volunteers to go into the homes and do assessments on how their environment can be improved to lesson falls. Ms. McGraw noted that they are working with the Fort Collins and Loveland Senior Advisory Boards planning a Senior Network Luncheon for this Fall at the new Senior Center, they plan to produce a Senior Resource Directory, and they are also working with Choices for Senior Living and Dial-a-Ride to provide funding for medical trips.

Senior Chuckwagon: Ms. Thor reported on the Senior Chuckwagon move into the Fort Collins Senior Center and invited the Board to have dinner with them when they are settled. She reported on the collaboration with the Front Range Community College Kitchen - they are proposing to expand and renovate their existing food service kitchen so the Senior Nutrition Program could move in and expand its services and Front Range could develop a food service training curriculum for all levels of food service and the hospitality industry. Ms. Riley added that they are also hoping to get some inter-generational projects going with Front Range; Chair Disney suggested that the OOA Advisory Council have a meeting at Senior Chuckwagon.

Weatherization: Mr. Buhlig reported on two coordinating projects: 1) Rocky Mountain National Park Project - in cooperation with teams from ten other agencies throughout the State, and three from Wyoming, 31 of the Rocky Mountain National Park's residential homes were weatherized; 2) "Youth at Risk" Project - a $76,000 grant was received to work in cooperation with the Department of Energy, Mile High United Way, Public Service of Colorado, and the Larimer County Employment and Training Office; they hired three youth at risk for one year and their weatherization program served as mentor. Mr. Buhlig noted that the youth work with the crew and are trained so they are prepared to do this type of work when the grant is ended; they receive the same benefits as county employees and he feels this has been a very successful program. They recently returned from Park City, Utah where they received three days of intense training in weatherization and the youth accompanied them for the training.

Ms. Riley informed the Board that Ms. Syzmanski, Grants Manager, did not attend today's meeting because she is reviewing the applications for the Human Resources grants. Commissioner Duvall asked Ms. Riley to check with Ms. Syzmanski about transportation from LaPorte to Fort Collins, and who is eligible to ride, as many people in LaPorte are looking for some kind of public transportation and are willing to pay for it.

Ms. Riley provided an update on Community Coalitions: 1) Healthy Communities - a coalition to identify markers for evaluating the health of our community so they have some benchmarks to measure improvement in the community - they have identified 75 benchmarks; so far, their department has only made in-kind contributions but when the report of the current status is presented, they will move into a visionary process and they may be asked for a financial contribution; 2) Health Care Access Coalition - will be making a recommendation for north and south health clinics; she noted that the group has been working for three years to try and identify ways to resolve the access issue for low income and uninsured and under-insured people and they will try and use existing resources and not build anything and they are in the process of preparing their public presentation to seek funding for the health care clinics; 3) Human Services Restructuring - the group will be meeting next week to try and figure out what is affordable as a community; 4) Family Support Alliance/Kellogg Grant - a steering committee was formed to unite four agencies providing health care services to submit a single application to Kellogg for restructuring, coordinating and integrating services - Poudre Valley Pre-Natal Clinic, Lutheran Family Services, Larimer County Health Department, and the Children's Clinic.

At this time, Mr. Lancaster presented a GO Colorado Grant Agreement and Resolution for the North Inlet Bay Campground Expansion and requested Board approval and the Chair's signature.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve a GO Colorado Grant Agreement and Resolution for the North Inlet Bay Campground Expansion and Enhancement, and authorize the Chair to sign both documents.

STANDING MEETING WITH PAUL COOPER

DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS

(#311)

The Board of County Commissioners met in regular session at 9:30 a.m. with Paul Cooper, Director of Community Corrections. Chair Disney presided; Commissioners Clarke and Duvall were present. Also present was: Frank Lancaster, County Manager. Recording Clerk, A. Jensen.

1. Facility Planning: Mr. Cooper began the meeting by submitting an agenda. Discussion centered around the subject of a juvenile holding facility. Mr. Cooper presented information to the Commissioners regarding the estimated budget of a Juvenile Detention Center. Commissioner Duvall inquired as to the number of F.T.E. required to adequately run a Juvenile Detention Center. Mr. Cooper responded 11-12 F.T.E.s would be needed. Mr. Cooper emphasized that if the Commissioners make this facility a priority it would severely curtail funding for programs keeping juveniles out of jail. Discussion continued regarding currently offered programs and the impact on them if funding was diverted to a Juvenile Detention Center (juvenile holding facility). Commissioner Duvall requested that Mr. Cooper explore the possibility of another department taking over some of these programs. Chair Disney asked if any of the cities have preventative type programs. Mr. Cooper responded no. Commissioner Clarke stated that an important part of these preventative programs is when the youth offender is required to make restitution. Chair Disney commented on how many kids the holding facility would serve as opposed to how many are served through the existing programs. Mr. Cooper will compile information for the Commissioners to present to city leaders in an effort to establish a Juvenile Detention Center.

2. Follow up to 3/20/95 "FET" Meeting: Mr. Cooper stated he has sent a written response to the Sheriff and the District Attorney. Mr. VanMeveren replied that he sees no issue with the responses and has asked Mr. Cooper to contact Larry Abrahamson on a regular basis. Mr. Cooper mentioned that he has been unable to contact the Sheriff. Discussion ensued regarding the ramifications of the March 20, 1995 Family Emergency Team meeting. Mr. Cooper stated that communication has improved, the two additional F.T.E. has helped move the work along but that the workload has not decreased.

3. Juvenile Services Planning Committee: Mr. Cooper stated that in 1994 the Juvenile Services Planning Committee administrated the funds from Senate Bill 94 and had chosen not to be part of the bidding process for the 1995/1996 funds. A local private non-private organization was awarded the funding. As a result of this change, Mr. Cooper said the County will no longer be responsible for the Multi-Disciplinary Assessment Team Coordinator position, but will receive funding for electronic home monitoring. Discussion followed regarding program coordination across County departments and the administration of programs available to youth offenders.

4. Other Business: Discussion ensued regarding prisoner transportation and operational problems at the jail.

The meeting adjourned at 10:15 a.m.

Chair Disney summarized a meeting he had with Mr. Burch, Larimer County Risk Manager. Discussion ensued regarding funding for a loss prevention program, using the Public Works programs as a model, implementation of an education program, and ergonomic and safety programs. Chair Disney inquired if targeting reductions is part of this proposed Safety and Los Prevention Program. Ms. Anderson-Siler responded that yes this program will be targeting reductions and attach an incentive program to these reductions.

Commissioner Duvall inquired as to what other needs regarding facilities expansion are coming up, such as the Sheriff's office or Social Services. Discussion followed regarding the need analysis completed by Interplan, the jail, and alternative sentencing programs. The Board is concerned that a major component for this project will unintentionally be left out in the planning process. Mr. Lancaster stated he will coordinate the Bleiker analysis; Mr. Anderson and Mr. Lancaster will meet in two weeks with the goal of making recommendations to the Commissioners by the end of July.

Mr. Anderson stated he will attend the meeting with Chip Steiner July 3, 1995.

Ms. Arnett stated that with additional revenues realized in 1992 they were able to restore the position in part on a temporary basis, and recently more savings were realized by a rate reduction in worker's compensation; therefore, no additional county funding will be required for this position and she would like to make this position a permanent half-time position.

7. LEGAL MATTERS:

At this time, Assistant County Attorney Jeannine Haag and Director of Human Resources Ralph Jacobs joined the meeting for Legal Matters.

1. Reimbursement for Hourglass Fire: Ms. Haag stated that County Attorney George Hass requested she ask the Board if they want him to do any more about the Hourglass Fire in terms of pursuing the State for some reimbursement; Chair Disney stated that based on the meeting the Board had recently with Jim Hubbard of the State Forest Service, he doesn't think it will help. Commissioner Duvall asked Ms. Haag if Mr. Hass thinks something can be done to obtain funding and she requested that Mr. Hass look into the possibility of finding out what it would take to get the State to pay for fires on state land instead of being the county's responsibility; she realizes this would take a legislative change. Chair Disney suggested setting up a meeting with the Legislators to talk about some of these issues and Commissioner Clarke suggested this would be a good thing to talk to CCI about. The Board instructed Mr. Lancaster to call Mr. Hubbard to see if there is any chance to obtain funding.

2. Property Tax Credit Procedure: Ms. Haag stated that Mr. Hass wanted her to report to the Board that he has done the research with respect to giving a property tax credit to avoid having to change the mill levy; he has spoken to County Treasurer Chuck Woodward and he thinks that with the current computer program they can set it up to show the credit on the tax bill. Discussion followed whether the credit should be given ahead of time when the tax bill is sent out in January or wait and collect it and give them a refund the following year; Mr. Hass recommends the credit be given initially because properties could change hands, etc. There was discussion of having enough lines available on the tax bill and how the credit should be shown on the tax bill; they will work on this with Information Management to see what it would cost to reconfigure the tax bill.


M O T I O N

Commissioner Clarke moved that the Board go into Executive Session at 10:25 a.m. to discuss pending litigation.
