COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG) PROGRAM

POST AWARD PUBLIC HEARING

(# 553)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 11:00 a.m. in regular session with Robert Thompson, Program Specialist. Chair Olson presided and Commissioner Rennels was present. Recording Clerk: Gael Cookman.

Mr. Thompson noted that the Post Award Hearing for CDBG Grants is required in order to give the public ample opportunity to comment on the entire process of awarding CDBG funds; he explained that there are three items on the agenda for today: 1) The Coalition for the Homeless/Neighbor to Neighbor, 2) The Crossroads Ministry of Estes Park, and 3) The West Vine Stormwater Drainage Project.

1. COALITION FOR THE HOMELESS/NEIGHBOR TO NEIGHBOR:

Deb Deboutez with the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless and Trish Flynn, Case Worker for Neighbor to Neighbor, noted that their CDBG Grant has allowed them to assist 64 families, 51 of the families had females at the head of the household and 8 had at least one handicap individual residing in the home. Ms. Deboutez further explained that 25 families have now graduated from the program and are now in permanent housing without assistance (home ownership or unsubsidized rentals). Ms. Flynn explained that the program will continue and the number of individuals they can provide assistance to will vary depending upon the funding available; she also thanked the County for making this program possible, and allowing the program to bridge to the Estes Park community as well.

There was no public comment regarding this issue.

2. CROSSROADS MINISTRY OF ESTES PARK:

Kathryn Speer noted that the Crossroads Ministry in Estes Park provides a broad range of human services including food, clothing, housing assistance, and medical prescriptions; she explained that their current office consists of 575 square feet which was not adequate space to operate their program. Ms. Speer noted that with this grant they were able to purchase a 3584 square foot building; she explained that they are currently renovating the property with the help of some volunteered supplies and services and they hope to be in the building sometime around Christmas. Ms. Speer also explained that they would be sharing the building with the Victims Advocates of Estes Park and Habitat for Humanity.

Wendell Amos noted during public comment that this project would not have been possible without the assistance and guidance from Robert Thompson; he explained that if they had not received the initial grant for this project, they would not have been able to raise the remainder of the funds necessary for the purchase of this property.

3. WEST VINE STORMWATER DRAINAGE PROJECT:

Lisa Dunn, Project Engineer for Larimer County, noted that the West Vine Stormwater Project is a million dollar project that will benefit one of the most severely flooded areas within Larimer County; she explained that they will be removing over 60 homes from the floodplain. Ms. Dunn noted that of the million dollars required for this project, over $700,000 is grant money from both the State and FEMA; she noted that this is an extremely generous amount and it will benefit property owners of low to moderate income. Ms. Dunn explained that Duran Excavating has until the end of February 2000 to complete the project, but they have indicated that most items will be finished by the end of November.

There was no public comment regarding this issue.

The Board thanked Mr. Thompson for all of his efforts regarding the above projects.

Meeting recessed at 11:25 a.m.

LAND-USE PLANNING HEARING

(#554)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 3 p.m. in regular session with Larry Timm, Director of Planning. Chair Olson presided and Commissioner Rennels was present; Commissioner Disney is a presenter at the "New Approaches to Transportation" workshop in Denver this week. Also present were: Jim Reidhead, Director Rural Land Use Center; Rob Helmick, Senior Planner; Carol Evans, Fred Starr, and Sean Wheeler, Planners II; Sylvester Mabry, Civil Engineer; Doug Ryan, Environment Health Planner; John Pedas, Code Enforcement Officer; and Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney. Recording Clerk, Sherry Graves.

Chair Olson noted that the following are consent items and will not be discussed in detail unless requested by the Commissioners or members of the audience; Mr. Reidhead requested that the Alverson Preliminary Rural Land Plan be removed from the consent agenda for minor changes in the conditions of approval.

 

  1. VELK AMENDED MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT (#99-S1487 &
  2. #99-S1488): N 1/2 15-07-71 - WEST OF COUNTY ROAD 27; 36.93 ACRES;

    1 LOT; O-OPEN ZONING

    This is a request for an amended Minor Residential Development (MRD) to divide an existing 36.93 acre parcel known as Tract "A" Velk MRD into a 30.0 acre parcel and a 6.93 acre parcel for single family residential uses; the applicant will also be processing an Add-On-Agreement for Document Review. Staff findings include: 1) The proposed Velk Amended MRD complies with the requirements for minor residential developments, as contained in the Larimer County Subdivision Resolution. The proposal is consistent with the uses and minimum lot size required for the "O" Open Zone District; 2) Approval of the Velk Amended MRD, with the conditions as recommended, should not result in any significant negative impacts on the natural environment, surrounding properties, the provision of services or transportation.

    The staff recommendation is for approval of the Velk Amended MRD, with the following conditions: 1) The Final Plat shall show the location of all existing easements of record; 2) The following notes shall be shown on the Final Plat: a) Agricultural uses are present in this area which may at times result in odors, dust and noise. These are a normal part of agriculture and should be expected to occur. Larimer County will not take action to stop or hinder legal agricultural uses on properties in this area; b) Lot owners should be advised that there is a potential for nuisance conflicts from wildlife (such as skunks, raccoons, prairie dogs and snakes). Lot owners should be prepared to address wildlife conflicts if they arise; c) During certain times of the year, mosquitoes may present a significant nuisance. Larimer County does not have a mosquito abatement program. Any mosquito abatement activity will be the responsibility of the homeowner; such activity must be according to applicable Federal, State and local rules and regulations; d) All required fees shall be paid at time of building permit issuance; e) Passive radon mitigation measures shall be included in construction of residential structures on these lots. 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 builder may present a prepaid receipt from 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.

  3. HORSETOOTH LAKE ESTATES AMENDED PLAT OF LOTS 110 AND
  4. 111 (#99-S1492): NE 1/4 01-06-70 IN HORSETOOTH LAKE ESTATES ON

    THE SOUTH SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD 38E, SOUTH OF HORSETOOTH

    MOUNTAIN PARK PARKING LOT; 1.28 ACRES; O-OPEN ZONING

    This is a request for an Amended Plat to adjust the lot line between Lots 110 and 111 in Horsetooth Lake Estates to cure an encroachment. Staff findings are: 1) Horsetooth Lake Estate Subdivision was recorded in 1964; 2) The proposed Amended Plat would adjust the common boundary line between Lots 110 and 111 to cure a building encroachment and to meet zoning setback requirements; 3) All utility companies serving the site and the Larimer County Health and Engineering Departments have reviewed the request and stated no objection; 4) Approval of the Amended Plat of Lots 110 and 111, Horsetooth Lake Estates Subdivision, will not result in any significant negative impacts on surrounding properties, services, transportation or the natural environment. The staff recommendation is for approval of the Amended Plat of Lots 110 and 111 of Horsetooth Lake Estates, with the condition that easements, as requested by Poudre Valley REA, be provided for any existing facilities which cross these lots.

  5. HUSTED HEIGHTS LOT 2 EASEMENT VACATION (#99-S11486):
  6. 04-05-72 - 3 MILES NORTHEAST OF THE TOWN OF ESTES PARK,

    OFF CR 43 AT THE END OF HILLCREST LANE IN THE HUSTED

    HEIGHTS SUBDIVISION; 1 LOT; RE-1 RESIDENTIAL ZONING

    This is a request to vacate a dedicated emergency vehicle turning easement on Lot 2 of the Husted Heights Subdivision. Staff findings include: 1) The proposed easement vacation is in compliance with the Larimer County Master Plan, the Larimer County Zoning Resolution, and the Larimer County Subdivision Resolution; 2) The easement vacation is compatible with other development in the surrounding area; 3) Approval of the easement vacation will not result in any significant impacts to neighboring properties, the natural environment or the provision of services and infrastructure; 4) Property values in the surrounding area would not be adversely affected by the amended plat.

    The staff recommendation is for approval of the Husted Heights Lot 2 Easement Vacation, subject to the following conditions: 1) The applicant shall provide a legal description of the portion of the emergency vehicle turning easement in Lot 2 of the Husted Heights Subdivision; 2) The applicant shall provide the remaining utility notifications as required prior to recording the final plat. No existing utility easements are to be vacated by this approval; 3) The applicant shall comply with the requirements in the Urban-Wildland Interface Code for driveway turning radii.

  7. COLARD MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT AMENDMENT
  8. (#99-S1483): 36-04-71 - WEST SIDE OF CR 37E, SOUTH OF LAKE DRIVE;

    10 ACRES; 1 LOT; O-OPEN ZONING

    This is a request to amend the Colard Minor Residential Development to allow Tract "A" to be recognized as a building lot. Staff findings are: 1) The proposal is consistent with the Minor Residential Development regulations in effect at the time the Minor Residential Development was approved, and is consistent with the current MLD regulations; 2) No agency or individual has indicated a conflict with the requested conversion of Tract "A" to a building lot; 3) The approval of this Minor Residential Development amendment will not create or be a detriment to the health, safety or welfare of present or future inhabitants of Larimer County.

    The staff recommendation is for approval of the Colard Minor Residential Amendment, allowing Tract "A" to become a building lot, subject to the following conditions: 1) An amended plat be filed which clearly indicates that Tract "A" is now considered a building lot; 2) The access drive construction shall conform to the plan approved by the Engineering Department; 3) The new residential construction on Tract "A" will be subject to the following requirements/conditions; 4) At the time of building permit application, the following fees, in effect at the time, must be paid: a) Larimer County Transportation Capital Expansion Fee; b) Larimer County Regional Transportation Fee; c) Larimer County Cash in Lieu Fee for Parks; d) St. Vrain School District Cash in Lieu Fee for Schools; e) Drainage Fee. 5) The following notes shall be placed on the plat: a) Streets in this development shall not be maintained by Larimer County. Maintenance of the streets shall be the responsibility of the property owners. Failure to maintain streets may result in a lien being placed on these lots; b) Engineered footings and foundations are required; c) Passive radon mitigation measures shall be included in construction of residential structures on these lots. 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 Building Department. As an alternative, a builder may present a prepaid receipt from 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; d) Underground utilities shall be required; e) Rural area issues: i) Lot owners should be advised that there is a potential for nuisance conflicts from wildlife (such as skunks, raccoons, foxes, coyotes, prairie dogs and snakes). The Colorado Division of Wildlife can provide information to property owners about how to handle these situations, but lot owners are responsible for addressing wildlife conflicts if they arise; ii) During certain times of the year, mosquitoes may present a significant nuisance; Larimer County does not have a mosquito abatement program. Any mosquito abatement activity will be the responsibility of the homeowner; such activity must be according to applicable Federal, State and local rules and regulations; iii) Prairie dog colonies exist in the general area; prairie dogs can be a nuisance if they migrate to developed residential property. At times these animals are implicated in the transmission of plague to people or their pets. It is important for residents to observe animal control requirements for dogs and cats; iv) Farming practices on adjacent properties can produce odors, noise and dust. These are a normal part of agriculture and should be expected to occur; v) If livestock will be kept on these lots, it will be important to carefully manage grazing in order to maintain grass cover in the pasture. Overgrazing will produce bare ground, weeds, erosion and polluted runoff. Management of these lots must be coordinated with drainage and erosion control issues, siting of sanitation systems, fencing and feeding.

  9. BROADVIEW SUBDIVISION LOT 3 AMENDED PLAT RELEASE OF
  10. COLLATERAL (#96-SA0961): SW 1/4 35-5-73 - SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 36,

    WEST OF MARY'S LAKE ROAD, WEST OF ESTES PARK

    This is a request for release of collateral for the Broadview Subdivision Amended Plat. The staff recommendation is for approval of the request for release of collateral for the Broadview Subdivision Amended Plat in the amount of $3,622.50.

    Motion carried 2 - 0.

  11. ALVERSON PRELIMINARY RURAL LAND PLAN (#99-RLP0032): S 1/2
  12. OF SE 1/4 35-4-70; 6 MILES WEST OF STATE HIGHWAY 287 AND ONE

    MILE SOUTH OF THE INTERSECTION OF COUNTY ROAD 4 AND

    COUNTY ROAD 27E; 80 ACRES; 4 LOTS; O-OPEN ZONING

    This is a request for Preliminary approval to divide 80 acres of land into 4 single-family residential lots: Three lots of approximately 3 to 10 acres in size and one lot of approximately 60 acres, including one 5-acre building envelope. The 60 acre lot will contain the residual land and be protected by a perpetual conservation easement in accordance with the RLUP. Staff findings are that this proposal is consistent with the policies of the Rural Land Use Process: 1) A number of factors support our belief that this is an appropriate RLUP project: a) The greater number of residential units possible under the property's O-Open zoning; b) The general development pressure within the immediate area for both subdivisions and use-by-right 35-acre division of land; c) Overall project design; d) Applicant's willingness to place a perpetual conservation easement on the residual land; 2) The site-based incentives (2 density bonus units, or 100%) provide the landowner with benefits roughly equivalent to those they would obtain through dividing their property into individual 35 acre tracts. As stated earlier, this project will also provide commensurate benefits to Larimer County, both immediate neighbors and citizens in general; 3) The plan is compatible with the existing neighboring land uses; 4) This plan is compatible with proposed public/private Parish Ranch Conservation Project.

    Mr. Reidhead suggested that the phrase "except the existing home (Lot 1)" be deleted from the conditions of approval #9, #10 & #12; Ms. Haag recommended that the phrase be left in as it adds to clarification of the record. Mr. Reidhead also stated that Tony Simons from the Building Department recommended that a dry hydrant be installed at the low water crossing in the Little Thompson River on the Parrish Ranch since the water supply is limited in the area; Mr. Reidhead noted that even though he thinks it is a good idea, the land is owned by someone else, and he didn't think it was an appropriate condition of approval and condition #18 does require the installation of sprinklers in all new residential structures.

    The Rural Land Use Center Director/staff recommendation is for approval of the Alverson Preliminary Rural Land Plan, with the following conditions: 1) Adequate documentation of the legality of access to Parrish Ranch Road must be reviewed and approved by County Attorney prior to final approval; 2) Approval of final engineering designs, including design of utilities, roads, ROW dedication, stormwater plan, and erosion control plan before final plat approval; 3) A complete geo-technical investigation and engineered footing and foundation plan is required of each building site prior to construction and reviewed by the Engineering Department; 4) Preliminary soil testing to demonstrate soil suitability for on-site sewage systems in accordance with County Health Department recommendations. Representative soil tests need to be performed as part of the development review and approval process and be submitted prior to final plat approval. Because there is one principal soil type involved, it would be sufficient to perform soil tests on one of the lots. For Lot 2, applicant must demonstrate feasibility of installation of primary on-site sewage system and ultimate replacement system. It will be necessary to consider the location of the Little Thompson River, the Culver Ditch, and the amount of area in between in making this determination; 5) Residual land conservation easement and management plan review and approval by County Attorney and the RLUC Director prior to final plat approval; 6) Homeowners' association covenants, including architectural controls, and provision for internal road maintenance, review and approval by County Attorney prior to final plat approval; 7) Review and approval of final development agreement by County Attorney; 8) 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; 9) Transportation Capital Expansion Fees in effect at the time of building permit issuance shall be assessed on all lots, except the existing home (Lot 1); 10) Park fees in-lieu-of-land-dedication in effect at the time of building permit issuance shall be assessed on all lots, except the existing home (Lot 1); 11) RLUP fees in effect at time of building permit issuance shall be assessed on all lots, except for the existing home (Lot 1); 12) School fees in-lieu-of-land-dedication shall be collected at the time of building permit issuance on all lots, except for the existing home (Lot 1); 13) 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; 14) At time of real estate closing, owner or real estate professional shall provide purchasers of residential lots and residual lands with Code of the West, a County document which addresses differences between urban and rural living in Larimer County; 15) The owners of the residual land parcel shall be responsible for providing an annual monitoring report for the residual land to Larimer County Rural Land Use Center; 16) The applicant shall obtain a letter from the fire district accepting one point of access; 17) A note be added to the final plat or some disclosure to potential owners that explains that development does not meet the County's requirement for the health and safety of the residents for secondary access; 18) Automatic fire protection sprinklers are required for all new residential structures; 19) If a new single-family residence is constructed on Lot 2, it shall be a replacement for the existing mobile home. The mobile home shall be removed upon completion of the new single-family dwelling; 20) In the event of a cooperative maintenance program for Parrish Ranch Road being formed, all owners of residential sites will be required to participate on a pro-rata basis. This provision shall be included in the development agreement and the homeowners' association covenants; 21) The following notes shall also be included on the final plat: a) Mosquitoes: During certain times of the year, mosquitoes may present a significant nuisance. 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 and be prepared to address them as residents if they arise. The County is not able to mitigate nuisances if they develop, although information on managing these issues is available; c) Prairie dog colonies do exist in the general area surrounding this proposal. Prairie dogs can be a nuisance if they migrate to developed residential property. The County does not perform prairie dog control, but can advise owners on how to obtain the services of licensed firms that do. At times prairie dogs are implicated in the transmission of plague to people or their pets. The County does monitor prairie dog colonies for evidence of plague. Animal control requirements for both dogs and cats should be observed; d) 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; e) Horse pasture management: If livestock is to be kept on the smaller parcels, the owners must be aware that lots or this size must be managed very carefully in order to maintain grass cover in the pasture.

    M O T I O N

    Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners adopt the staff findings and Rural Land Use Center Director/staff recommendation and approve the Alverson Preliminary Rural Land Plan (#99-RLP0032), with the conditions as outlined.

    Motion carried 2 - 0.

  13. YOCKEY FIREWOOD YARD ZONING VIOLATION, LOT 21 SHIDELER

SUBDIVISION, 2825-2529 THARP DRIVE IN LAPORTE, COLORADO

This alleged violation is for processing and storing firewood in a platted residential subdivision on a lot with an existing duplex in the O-Open Zoning District. Mr. Pedas submitted pictures of the subject property and described its location; he noted that in the Fall of 1998, his office received several complaints from neighbors regarding the dumping of trees on the back part of the lot, the cutting and splitting of the logs, and storage and distribution of the wood. Mr. Pedas continued that the original notice of the violation was sent to the property owner and the activity ceased; however, in the late summer of 1999, the activity started again. Mr. Pedas noted that in addition to the piles of wood being unsightly, the additional noise and traffic associated with the operation has become a source of aggravation for the residents in the neighborhood. Staff findings are: 1) The subject property is in a platted residential subdivision zoned O-Open District; 2) The O-Open District does not permit firewood processing operations; 3) The processing and outside storage of large quantities of firewood for off premises use is inconsistent with the residential character of the neighborhood; 4) Continued use of the subject property for processing and storage of firewood will affect property values in the immediate neighborhood. The staff recommendation is to find that a violation exists, require compliance within 30 days, and authorize legal action if the compliance deadline is not met.

Property owner Robert Yockey, Jr. stated that he has had firewood on the premises since 1965; he noted he works for Kincaid Tree Surgery and he gets the logs from them so they don't have to be hauled to the Landfill. He stated that the activity only goes on several weekends in November and December and he never starts the chain saw before 9 a.m. and the splitter makes about as much noise as a lawn mower. Chair Olson stated that this is better than having the logs go to the landfill, but the problem is that this area is not zoned for this activity. The Board asked if there was any place else he could do this and he responded in the negative. Chair Olson asked about the possibility of rezoning; Mr. Pedas explained the process and noted it would be more complicated than it would be worth to Mr. Yockey. Commissioner Rennels asked if Mr. Yockey could apply for a variance to allow the "limited" use; Mr. Pedas responded that any landowner can ask for a "special exception". In this case, Mr. Yockey can apply to the Board of Adjustment for a "limited" private use, but not to become a commercial wood yard.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners adopt the staff findings and staff recommendation and find in the matter of the Yockey Firewood Yard Violation that a violation does exist, require compliance within six months to allow time for Mr. Yockey to dispose of the existing firewood and apply to the Board of Adjustment for a special exception.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

The hearing adjourned at 3:30 p.m.
