-- Executive Session:

M O T I O N

Mr. Gluckman informed the Board that Mr. Miller gave a report on inspections of school building and noted that the Poudre R-1 School District officials were very excited about it and indicated they will support it.

6. COMMISSIONER REPORTS:

-- Commissioner Clarke expressed his frustrations regarding the governmental process and decisions made concerning the corn maze planted for public viewing on the Swets property.

-- Commissioner Disney reported that he met with Randy Jones, Superintendent of Rocky Mountain National Park, and was informed that Trail Ridge has been designated as an All-American Highway, which makes it eligible for some funding under the Transportation Equity Act. Mr. Jones stated that in order to receive funding, he has to work through the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and he requested Commissioner Disney to figure out how to do this through the Upper Front Range Transportation Planning Council; Commissioner Disney stated that they are asking for a grant of $247,000 to hire a consultant to do an analysis of the road to determine what needs to be done to meet the demand on that road. Commissioner Disney stated that he is going to meet with Marc Engemoen, Director of Public Works, to discuss this request; he noted that the Upper Front Range Council has hired Bob Felsburg to do an update of the Upper Front Range Plan and it may be possible to expand his contract and his scope of services to include this analysis. Commissioner Disney asked his colleagues for permission to make this suggestion; the Board concurred.

-- Chair Olson reported that she attended the Affordable Housing Coalition meeting last week and John Pollack from the Colorado Division of Housing (CDH) was also there to request that in the future Counties prioritize their funding requests; he noted that CDH has concerns because they start receiving requests and distributing money and then a most-productive, best project comes in and they cannot justify giving a certain County more money because they have received a large amount. Chair Olson suggested that if we get an official request to do this prioritization, Grant Manager Lorrie Wolfe should be asked to help with the prioritization of requests. Chair Olson informed her colleagues that she made no commitments to the Affordable Housing Coalition at the meeting.

-- Chair Olson stated that at the Planning Commission hearing regarding Transferable Development Rights (TDU), Mike Doten noted that Larimer County's current TDU regulations do not address commercial and the Planning Commission drafted some very valid points which they would like the Commissioners to add to the regulations; therefore, County Attorneys' George Haas and Jeannine Haag and Chief Planner Russ Legg are going to work on the verbage. Mr. Doten suggested giving the Task Force 90 days to figure out how to include commercial in the TDU regulations. The Board requested that they have a worksession on this matter prior to the September 14, 1998 hearing and they suggested that Tom Fosberg from the City of Fort Collins be invited to the worksession and to the hearing.

-- Chair Olson reported she met with Ann Azari, Mayor City of Fort Collins, this morning and they discussed the formation of a Joint Planning Commission with Timnath and it was suggested that Ms. Azari, Chair Olson, and Jenny McGraw meet to discuss this further.

At this time, Assistant County Attorney Jeannine Haag joined the meeting for Legal Matters.


7. LEGAL MATTERS:

-- Ms. Haag requested Board approval and the Chair's signature on the following documents: Parking Structure License Agreement, Termination of the IGA with the City of Fort Collins, Larimer County, and the Downtown Development Authority, and a new IGA with the City of Fort Collins, Larimer County, and the Downtown Development Authority. Ms. Haag noted that the Parking Structure License reserves a certain number of spaces in the parking garage on a permit basis for our employees; much discussion followed. Ms. Haag also noted that last July an IGA was signed which outlined how the parking garage was going to be approached and now that IGA is irrelevant and needs to be terminated and subsequently a new Intergovernmental Government Agreement signed; she noted that the Agreements have been reviewed, revised and approved by the County Attorney.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Clarke moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Parking Structure License Agreement, Termination of the Intergovernmental Agreement by and among the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, the County of Larimer, Colorado, and the Fort Collins, Colorado Downtown Development Authority, and the Intergovernmental Agreement by and among the City of Fort Collins, the County of Larimer, and the Fort Collins Downtown Development Authority, and authorize the Chair to sign the three documents.
