CONTINUATION OF LAND USE PUBLIC HEARING CONCERNING

I/25/STATE HIGHWAY 14 PROJECTS

(#537)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 1:30 p.m. for further discussion of the four projects adjacent to the I-25/State Highway 14 Interchange. Chair Olson presided and Commissioners Disney and Rennels were present. Also present were: Larry Timm, Director of Planning; Rob Helmick, Senior Planner; Marc Engemoen, Director of Public Works; Mark Peterson, County Engineer; and Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney. Recording Clerk, Sherry Graves.

It was noted that this meeting was continued from September 27, 1999 pending the outcome of the North Front Range Transportation & Air Quality Planning Council meeting on October 7, 1999 regarding available funding for improvements for the I-25/SH 14 Interchange, which will impact the following four projects: Interchange Business Park PUD Master Plan and Preliminary Phase Plan; Clydesdale Park Master Plan and Preliminary Plat for Phases 1 and 2; Trails @ Vista Bonita PUD; and the Waterdale Special Review & Amended Zoning.

Mr. Helmick submitted a memo dated October 12, 1999 from Mr. Engemoen informing him that at the aforementioned October 7, 1999 meeting, the regional transportation plan was amended to include the improvements on SH14 (Mulberry) proposed by the recently completed I-25/SH14 Interchange Feasibility Study. Mr. Engemoen stated that the Council directed the Technical Advisory Committee to revise the transportation improvement plan (T.I.P.) to include $675,000 for the initial safety improvements on SH14; he noted that these funds should be available in the fall of 2000.

Mr. Engemoen continued that at the land use hearing on September 27, 1999, the Board indicated they would likely approve the proposals for Interchange Business Park, Waterdale, Clydesdale, and the Trails at Vista Bonita if this commitment of funding was obtained. A lengthy condition of approval regarding transportation was outlined in the above mentioned memo and that condition was discussed in detail, but will not be outlined in this set of proceedings until final approval of the four projects is granted.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board of County Commissioners re-open the hearing to provide an opportunity to answer questions from the applicants and to receive public comment.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

Paul Gallenstein, applicant for Waterdale, Jim Mokler, applicant for Interchange Business Park, Larry McCrery, applicant for Clydesdale Park, Jim Sell, consultant for Trails at Vista Bonita, and Mary Warring, resident in Vista Bonita, asked a number of questions regarding the proposed conditions. Mr. Mokler thanked everyone for their efforts and hard work to get to this point; he noted that these new conditions were handed to them as they walked in the door and he would like an opportunity to discuss them with legal counsel and the other applicants. There was much discussion about the conditions outlined in the October 12, 1999 memo, specifically condition #1c which states that the Board shall have the right to adjust the transportation impact fees from time to time to reflect the actual construction costs or the effects of inflation over the course of constructing the required improvements; the developers asked if there could be a limit on these impact fees. There was also much discussion of condition #2 and the concern raised that it is not fair to say if the funding does not come through they are only allowed to build 30%, after they have spent millions for infrastructure. Mr. Gallenstein pointed out that condition #5 for his project states that this plan is not approved for a gated community at this time and he remembers that it was approved at the September 27, 1999 meeting; the Board concurred that they were in favor of the gated community, but requested that Engineering needs to approve the system for the egress gating.

Mr. Helmick quickly reviewed the other conditions in the four applications, and asked for some clarification, so closure could be brought to those today and the only outstanding issue to be resolved will be transportation. Mr. Engemoen requested further clarification from the Board on what they want changed in the conditions he has proposed. Ms. Haag stated that, if all four applicants agree to the conditions, they need to be outlined in a development agreement signed by everyone and approved as part of final plat approval.

After lengthy discussion of the conditions, specifically the 30% cap versus some other method of calculating; also, the Board indicated they were inclined to credit right-of-way dedication against project costs/fees. Chair Olson asked the developers if they were agreeable to wait one more week for a decision to allow time for the applicants to review these conditions further and discuss them in detail with Mr. Engemoen and Mr. Helmick. The applicants agreed to wait another week for a decision.
