5. ANDERSON FARM PRELIMINARY RURAL LAND PLAN (#98-EX1217):

N 1/2 OF THE S 1/2 OF 07-04-69 - APPROXIMATELY 4 MILES NORTH

AND WEST OF BERTHOUD ON COUNTY ROAD 23 NORTH OF

COUNTY ROAD 10 NORTH OF HERTHA RESERVOIR; 160 ACRES;

8 LOTS; FA-1 FARMING ZONING

This is a request for preliminary approval to divide 160 acres in the following manner: up to 8 single-family units of approximately 5 acres each and approximately 120 acres of open space (residual land) made up of wetland, irrigated and dry cropland, and pasture, protected by covenants in perpetuity. Staff findings are that this proposal is consistent with the policies of the Rural Land Use Process and: 1) The Rural Land Use Center (RLUC) Staff supports the Anderson Farm Preliminary Rural Land Plan based on the applicants' planning and design rationale for the location of the project's additional residential units, the overall acceptance of the preliminary plat design at the neighborhood meeting, and the potential for continued agricultural use of the residual land. The proposed plan considers the various land development and design options, particularly the 35-acre alternative, for which there is no County review; 2) There is an additional, harder-to-quantify consideration: Steve Anderson intends to continue farming in this area as he has in the past with his father and son. It is his plan to "further capitalize their operation" by selling residential sites. Using the RLUP is not his first choice--he would rather do no development at all. The intent of this particular RLUP project is to enhance and strengthen an existing family-run ag operation in the face of a lot of pressure to do otherwise. It is a compromise, but a reasonable one, in light of the many opposing financial, economic, and land-use forces which are at play in his family's neighborhood; 3) The 69 single-family residential units possible under the current FA1- Farming zoning of the property and the high level of development pressure within the immediate area, especially use-by-right 35-acre division of land, support our belief that this is an appropriate project, within both the spirit and letter of the Rural Land Use Process; 4) The site-based incentives (4 density bonus units or 100%) provide the landowners with benefits roughly equivalent to what they would obtain through dividing their property into individual 35-acre tracts, as well as pre-empting the potential for many more residential units allowed by current zoning. As proposed, this project will also provide commensurate benefits to Larimer County; 5) The plan is compatible with the existing neighboring land uses: agricultural lands, 35s, and subdivisions; 6) A RLUP final fee of $850.00 will be collected for each new dwelling unit constructed at the time of building permit issuance. A note to this effect to be placed on the plat.

The Rural Land Use Center Director and the Advisory Board recommend that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Anderson Farm Preliminary Rural Land Plan. The following contingencies must be met prior to approval of final plat by the Board of County Commissioners: 1) Issuance of a Larimer County Road Access Permit before the access to CR 23 is constructed. The access must be in accord with the Larimer County Access Policy; 2) Approval of final engineering designs, including design of utilities, roads, ROW dedication, and stormwater plan, before final plat submittal; 3) Demonstration of adequate water service provided by Little Thompson Water District; 4) Preliminary soil testing to demonstrate soil suitability for on-site sewage systems; 5) Protective covenant and management plan review and approval before final plat; 6) Review and approval of final development agreement by County Attorney; 7) The following notes shall also be included on the final plat: a) Mosquitoes: The County does not have a mosquito control program. Any spraying or other control will be the responsibility of the property owners; b) Wildlife: Wildlife such as skunks, snakes, and prairie dogs occur more frequently than in more built-up areas. Lot owners should be aware of these occurrences. The County is not able to mitigate nuisances if they develop, although information on managing these issues is available. The County does not perform prairie dog control, but can advise owners on how to obtain the services of licensed firms that do; it does monitor prairie dog colonies for evidence of plague. Animal control requirements for both dogs and cats should be observed; c) Adjacent agricultural uses: Farming practices on this and adjacent properties can produce odors, noise and dust. These are a normal part of agriculture and should be expected to occur; d) CR 23 is a gravel surface and therefore produces a significant amount of dust. The County performs dust control activities on a priority basis according to traffic volume. Paving or dust treatment are not applied to roads with very low traffic counts; e) Horse pasture management: If livestock is to be kept on the smaller parcels, the owners must be aware that lots of this size must be managed very carefully in order to maintain grass cover in the pasture; f) Engineered footing and foundations shall be required on all structures; g) The results of a radon detection test conducted in new dwellings once the structure is enclosed, but prior to issuance of a certificate of occupancy, shall be submitted to the Planning Department. As an alternative, a building may present a prepaid receipt for a radon tester which specifies that a test will be done within 30 days. A permanent certificate of occupancy can be issued when the prepaid receipt is submitted; h) Road fees shall be paid at the time of building permit, if determined applicable by the Engineering Department; i) Park fees shall be paid at the time of building permit issuance; j) RLUP fees shall be paid at the time of building permit issuance; 8) Homeowners' covenants, including architectural controls, will be reviewed prior to final approval; 9) The applicants agree to provide sales and other information to the Rural Land Use Center Director as necessary to insure that monitoring of the incentives can be conducted; 10) Owner or real estate professional shall provide purchasers of residential lots and the farm with "Code of the West" at time of real estate closing.

Chair Pro-Tem Clarke asked Mr. Reidhead how the Rural Land Use Center Board determined that four additional residential lots for a total of eight residential lots to be the appropriate size in order to make the project "equally profitable as regular 35-acre division of land" as stated in the RLUP resolution. Mr. Reidhead described the process, noting that they consider what a landowner could net if they were to do 35-acre parcels and then they add in the additional expenses required of them by the Rural Land Use Center and figure the value of the residual agricultural land to determine the equivalent net profit for the landowner by going through the RLUP. Mr. Reidhead stated that he has a fairly sophisticated in-depth financial analysis of the project. Chair Pro-Tem Clarke noted that the Rural Land Use Board voted 4-2, which indicates to him that two members felt that these bonuses were excessive, but he stated that he was satisfied when Mr. Reidhead said he did a lengthy financial analysis. Chair Pro-Tem Clarke also noted that this land has underlying zoning of FA-1 Farming, and could have a much higher density than the subdivision process would allow; therefore, going through the Rural Land Use process is the best option because it benefits the entire community and County. Commissioner Disney stated that he has visited this site and, in his opinion, this is the appropriate land use for this land; he noted for the record that a letter was received from Dale and Nancy Lathroup in support of this application.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board of County Commissioners adopt the Rural Land Center Board/Director and Staff findings and recommendation and approve the Anderson Farm Preliminary Rural Land Plan (#98-EX1217) with the contingencies as outlined above.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

The hearing adjourned at 3:10 p.m.

ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS

(#357 @ 400)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:00 a.m. in regular session with Frank Lancaster, County Manager. Chair Olson presided and Commissioners Clarke and Disney were present. Also present were: County Attorney George Hass; Assistant County Attorney Jeannine Haag; Jerry White, Right-of-Way Agent; Judy Rennick, Supervisor Reproductive Health; Glen Rathgeber, Deputy Director Human Services; Gordon Thibedeau, Executive Director Fort Collins Area United Way; Shari Olson, Chair Human Resources Committee; Diane Martell, Engineering Staff Services Manager; Sam Szymanski, Human Resources Grants Manager; Ginny Riley, Director Human Services; Kathy Snell, Director Health & Human Services; Jan DeWitt, Management Assistant Health & Human Services; George Coll, A.R.T. Team; Donna Hart, Commissioners' Office Staff Services Manager; and Deni LaRue, Community Information Manager. Recording Clerk, Sherry Graves.

1. OPEN SESSION FOR PUBLIC COMMENT: Kelly Ohlson discussed the Chapter 33 road standards the County is considering adopting; he noted that, in his opinion, he views this as one of the boiler plate issues of government and very important, but he is concerned that it does not include protection of watersheds, wildlife habitat, and visual impacts. Mr. Ohlson stated that the County does not want to intentionally or unintentionally imply to the public that those issues were not dealt with and he requested that reasonable moderate standards for these three issues be included; he also suggested that possibly there should be two standards - one for the main roads and lesser standards for the off-shoot roads. Chair Olson invited Mr. Ohlson to attend the Road Standards Focus Group meeting tonight; as he responded that he cannot attend, she made notes regarding his comments and will share them with the group tonight. Commissioner Clarke stated that he is interested in adopting minimal standards that address health and safety standards, but not to the extent that they become too much of a burden to the property owners and he would like to have them be voluntary and incentive driven; he noted that there is a group of people that think that the County has no right to tell them how to build their roads on their own private property. Commissioner Disney stated that from conversations he has had with Mr. Cornell, he was led to believe that by going to better engineering standards, we will be dealing with water quality issues because some of the erosion issues and visual scarring will be addressed.

2. LEGAL MATTERS:

-- Ingersoll Annexation: Chair Olson submitted a letter for Ms. Haag to read regarding the Homestead Ridge Development proposing to annex into Estes Park and asking the Board to take a stand; after reading the letter, Ms. Haag stated that "No", the County does not have public hearings on such matters. Mr. Lancaster suggested that Ms. Haag draft a standard letter for the Board to send when they have similar requests in the future.

-- Request from Larimer Emergency Telephone Authority: Mr. Hass stated that the Board received a request to adopt a resolution to increase fees to .45 cents per month for wired and wireless telephones. The Board said that they need to have a meeting with the LETA Board to find out more about this request before adopting a resolution.

-- Proposed Ordinance to Prohibit Juvenile Possession of Tobacco Products in Larimer County: Mr. Hass discussed a proposed Ordinance to prohibit juvenile possession of tobacco products in Larimer County; he noted that the County is supposed to pass this Ordinance under their general Ordinance making power, which is for adult crime only, and this Ordinance is specifically targeted at juveniles and he doesn't know

what to recommend with regard to penalties because the penalties are strictly related to adult crimes. Commissioner Clarke stated that what they are trying to do is make the County-wide Ordinance compatible with the Cities of Fort Collins and Loveland. After discussion, Mr. Hass stated that he will talk to the Juvenile Prosecutor Larry Abrahamson and decide how the penalties for violation of County Ordinance for juveniles can be defined and bring it back to the Board for discussion.

Ms. Szymanski stated that they received a letter from the City of Fort Collins approving their part in this venture; she noted that the City of Fort Collins and Larimer County are the two contributing funders to the Human Resource Grant Program and this action will result in greater administrative efficiency and cost savings for recipients of human services in Larimer County. Mr. Rathgeber expressed credit and appreciation to Ms. Szymanski for the work she has done on this venture.

11. WORKSESSION:

-- Request from Director of Parks: Mr. Lancaster stated that he had a request from Gregg Pickett, Director of Parks, to do more marketing and some creative things with some of the fees because revenues are down due to the public concern of the loss of water in Horsetooth Dam; he would like to offer discounts on week days or other marketing ideas to have some flexibility to attract the people; the Commissioners approved the request.

-- Discussion of Special Events Permits for Bike Races: Mr. Lancaster stated that he has a meeting scheduled this Thursday with the Special Events group to discuss changing policy regarding permits for special events in Larimer County; he noted that now they are starting to get complaints from residents in the southern part of the County, particularly CR 23E and there are two more races scheduled this year coming from Boulder County on that road. Mr. Lancaster stated that he is going to ask if the number of races on any particular road per year can be limited; he noted that another thing not included in the regulations is any kind of public outreach beforehand. Chair Olson stated that Larimer County doesn't want to have the reputation that this is the place to have races because we are inept. Mr. Lancaster stated that there is a rule that applications are to be turned in 40 days prior to the race, but no one follows that rule. Mr. Lancaster stated that he is meeting with the Risk Manager, and the Sheriff, Road & Bridge, Engineering, Health, and Parks Departments. Commissioner Disney stated that the races shouldn't be all in one neighborhood; we need to establish some guidelines, such as, how many bikes are too many, etc. and we need to coordinate with Boulder County.

12. COMMISSIONERS' REPORTS:
