CONTINUATION OF LAND USE HEARING

(# 593 @ 45, 594, 595)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 7:00 p.m. in regular session with Larry Timm, Director of Planning. Chair Olson presided and Commissioners Disney and Rennels were present. Also present were Jim Reidhead, Director of the Rural Land Use Center; Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney; Rob Helmick, Senior Planner; Doug Ryan, Environmental Planner; and Rusty McDaniel, Project Engineer. Recording Clerk, Jean O'Connor.

1. PROPOSED AMENDED LARIMER COUNTY LAND USE CODE SECTION 5.8-RURAL LAND USE PROCESS.

Mr. Reidhead stated the Rural Land Use Center staff agrees with the recommendation of the Planning Commission, including the addition of having the appropriate fire district listed as one of the required referral agencies. Staff also concurs with the various modifications of the table indicating the maximum number of buildable lots allowed through the proposed administrative process. Ms. Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney, recommended these changes.

Rural Land Use Center Staff can also support the Planning Commission recommendation for Section 5.8.7.2.b "Neighbors of the project will be notified by mail and all interested parties may participate in the public hearing before the Board of County Commissioners" with the understanding that this will not entail an additional step to the proposed Administrative Process, but will be the same notification required in Section 12.3.1 (Public Hearing Notice Requirements) of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

In addition, Staff is recommending some minor housekeeping changes in the form of corrections to the Rural Land Use Process: Section 5.8.5.C.5.4.b and 5.8.5.C.5.4.c should be changed to 5.8.5.C.5.4.a and 5.8.5.C.5.4.b. They were mis-numbered during the amendment process in June, 1999.

LARIMER COUNTY PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION:

To make the proposed Administrative Process a bit clearer, the Planning Commission recommends the use of a table (included below) to describe the limitations to the total buildable lots. Also, the Planning Commission recommends that the Rural Land Use Advisory Board be included as a required referral entity in 5.8.5.D.2.a, with the understanding that the Rural Land Use Advisory Board members will have the opportunity to make written comments regarding a project, but will not be required nor expected to make a recommendation as required under Section 5.8.5.C.8.

The Planning Commission recommends the adoption of the Proposed Amendments to the Larimer County Land Use Code Section 5.8-Rural Land Use Process as presented above except with the following changes shown below.

1. Add Section:

5.8.5 PROCESS

D. Administrative Rural Land Use Process

1. Landowners whose project involves a single contiguous parcel and who agree to limit the total buildable lots (including existing dwellings) to no more than the number described below may elect to use the administrative process:

70 to <105 acres: 3 buildable lots or less

105 to <140 acres: 4 buildable lots or less

140 or more acres: Allowed buildable lots plus 25% or 16 buildable lots,

whichever is less. (Allowed buildable lots are determined by total acreage of the parcel divided by 35 and rounded down to the nearest whole number).

Any project larger than 595 acres is eligible for the Administrative Process provided the number of total buildable lots does not exceed 16.

2. The administrative process will be limited to the following steps:

a. Steps 1, 2, 3, and 4 as described in Section 5.8.5(C), will be followed except that the RLUC Director shall only be required to refer the preliminary rural land plan to the County Health Department, the County Engineering Department, and the County Planning Department, THE APPROPRIATE FIRE DISTRICT, and the Rural Land Use Advisory Board for review and comment. These Departments will have 21 days from receipt within which to respond. The RLUC Director may refer the plan to other affected interests as he/she deems appropriate in his/her sole discretion.

b. Upon completion of steps 1, 2, 3, and 4, and upon receipt of the referral comments listed in 5.8.5(D.2.a), the RLUC Director will forward the preliminary rural land plan and a staff recommendation to the County Commissioners and place the plan on the agenda for the next regularly scheduled land use hearing. The landowner must pay applicable fees at the time the plan is scheduled for hearing before the County Commissioners.

c. The County Commissioners will hear and decide upon the application for the proposed preliminary rural land plan and the landowner will proceed in accordance with steps 10-18 as described in Section 5.8.5(C).

  1. Delete the following sections:

5.8.6.B.4.a-Current market value of the land if developed as 35-acre parcels, and current market value of the land if developed as proposed.

5.8.7.A.1.e.-Process is equally profitable as regular 35-acre division of land.

5.8.7.3.B-All interested parties should keep the incentives in mind throughout the process so as to maximize the incentives for both the landowner and the public as a whole.

5.8.7.3.C-Site-based incentives must be designed to give landowners equivalent benefits as they would obtain through dividing their property into individual 35-acre parcels, while at the same time providing benefits for the public.

To determine whether landowners obtain the same benefits they would obtain through a traditional 35-acre development, the RLUC Director will establish for comparison a credible value for each property as developed by the traditional 35-acre division process and the Rural Land Use Process. Value will be determined, in part, by consideration of: 1. Comparisons to similar parcels in the area. 2. Comparisons to previous RLUC cases.

  1. Change the following sections:

5.8.7.2.b-change "Members of the public are participants in the process" to "Members of the public may participate in the process". "NEIGHBORS OF THE PROJECT WILL BE NOTIFIED BY MAIL AND ALL INTERESTED PARTIES MAY PARTICIPATE IN THE PUBLIC HEARING BEFORE THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS".

Ms. Molly Orklin-Larson, representative for the applicant stated that a mining company has owned the proposed site since the 1970's and leased to Lafarge since the 1980's. She further stated that the applicant had met all required submittal dates, notifications and documentation, that several required permits had already been issued by the State and Army Corp. of Engineering, and that there were no conflicts with staff recommendations. Ms. Larson addressed the following citizen concerns: 1. Visual Impacts and Mitigation: Landscaping to the north would be installed prior to mining, the east and west parameter landscaping would be installed prior to beginning those phases of operation, and stock piles would be placed in front of the processing equipment; 2. Noise controls: truck back-up beepers would be at the lowest tone allowable, sound panels would be put in place and the applicant will comply with all local and state noise ordinances; 3.

Mr. Sorenson further stated that the applicant was also willing to limit peak truck traffic trips to 20 per hour between the hours of 7:00 to 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.; as well as contribute to a traffic signal if warrants were met and required by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). Mr. Gary Tuttle, the applicant, stated the site contained aggregate material necessary for operation; the area is in transition and the proposed use would be temporary; impacts will be reduced to reasonable and legal limits; many permits already received from the State; the operation would not affect property values; requirement to mine no more than 35 acres at any time; and all multi-jurisdictional requirements have been met.

Chair Olson asked what hours of operation are proposed. Mr. Tuttle answered Monday through Friday 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. or dark, which ever comes first, with peak shipping anticipated to occur between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., and Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with typically lighter shipping. Commissioner Rennels asked if the applicant was willing to hold quarterly neighborhood meetings and Mr. Tuttle replied in the affirmative and that Lafarge encouraged such meetings. Chair Olson inquired as to the proposed inlet and outlet locations of the proposed reclaimed reservoir. Mr. Tuttle stated that the locations would not be determined until final submission to the State and anticipated the outlet would be into the river and monitored monthly.

Chair Olson stated a decision would not be determined at this hearing and asked for the next available date to continue the hearing. Mr. Timm stated the hearing could continue on June 5, 2000 at 7:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers.
