LAND-USE PLANNING MEETING

(#480 @ 2000)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 3:05 p.m. in regular session with Larry Timm, Director of Planning. Chair Pro-Tem Disney presided and Commissioner Rennels was present by conference call from Vail, Colorado. Also present were: Tom Garton, Building Services Supervisor; Rob Helmick, Senior Planner; Sean Wheeler, Planner I; Fred Starr, Planner II; Rusty McDaniel, Project Engineer; and Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney. Recording Clerk, Sherry Graves.

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

  1. AMENDMENT TO THE UNIFORM FIRE CODE:
  2. The Poudre Valley Fire Protection District is requesting the approval of an amendment to the code on Article 78, Sections 7802.1 and 7802.2, and a new Appendix II-K for the temporary sale and use of fireworks; this amendment applies only to the Poudre Fire Authority District and addresses the location, storage and limitation to sales in temporary structures only. Staff findings are that the Building Department staff finds that the adoption of the amendment would be beneficial and will assist with regulation, enforcement, and education on temporary fireworks stands in Larimer County. With the enforcement of this amendment, the County would eliminate some causes of concern associated with these types of temporary businesses. The Planning Commission/Staff recommendation is for approval of the Poudre Valley Fire Protection Districts' request to amend the code as established.

  3. AMENDMENTS TO THE OFFICIAL ZONING MAP OF LARIMER
  4. COUNTY - FLOODPLAIN

    This is a request to amend the Official Zoning Maps of Larimer County to reflect changes to the Floodplain overlay zoning district of Larimer County. The three map panels of the FEMA map proposed for change and adoption are: Panel 0135D immediately north of Wellington, Panel 0150D immediately south of Wellington, both principally along Coal Creek, and Panel 0244C on the Big Thompson River affecting the area at Taft and 1st Street. The two panels affecting the Wellington area are changed as the result of work done after 1983 in the Boxelder Creek watershed; this project constructed dams in the watershed, which changed the hydraulics of the creek and narrowed the floodplain. The panel affecting the area of Loveland has been approved by FEMA to reflect the changes to the floodplain which occurred when the County replaced the bridge in the areas after the Big Thompson flood of 1976. Staff findings are that the change to the maps is necessary to insure the zoning overlay maps of the County are accurate and up to date, the changes to these panel maps as a part of the overall floodplain mapping of the County have been accepted by FEMA, and the proposed change is necessary to further protect the health, safety and welfare of present and future inhabitants of Larimer County. The Larimer County Planning Commission/Staff recommend approval of the changed FEMA panel maps 0135D, 0150D, and 0244C as a part of the Official Zoning Map of Larimer County.
