1. MILLER MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT TIME EXTENSION: SW 8-4-69; APPROXIMATELY 1/4 MILE NORTH OF COUNTY ROAD 10, 1/2 MILE EAST OF COUNTY ROAD 23

This is a request for a 6-month time extension to May 22, 2001 to allow completion of conditions of approval for a two lot Minor Residential Development that was approved in May 2000. Staff findings are 1. The Miller Minor Residential Development 98-S1360 was conditionally approved by the Board of County Commissioners in May of 2000. This approval had an expiration date of November 22, 2000; 2. The applicant requested a 6 month time extension prior to the expiration of the conditional approval. She cites extenuating circumstances and various health-related matters as justification for the time extension request and also states that the materials addressing the conditions of approval are nearly complete; 3. While additional development has been approved and is under review in this area since the Miller Minor Residential Development was approved, there should be no significant impact on the conditions that were originally applied to the Miller project. A thorough review was conducted for the Minor Residential Development application. There does not appear to be any public benefit to be gained by denying the time extension and requiring a review of the project as a subdivision application under the Larimer County Land Use Code; 4. A 6-month extension of the conditional approval for the Miller Minor Residential Development 98-S1360 should allow sufficient time for completion of this project. If the conditions of approval are not completed and the Final Plat is not recorded by the new deadline of May 22, 2001 then the applicant would be required to comply with the provisions of the Larimer County Land Use Code. Staff recommendation is approval of the request for a 6 month time extension for the Miller Minor Residential Development 98-S1360 and the variances for access easement and road width as contained in the original approval with the following conditions (repeated from original approval with modification to expiration date) 1. Road construction plans for the common access, including a turnaround at the common lot line between the lots, and a drainage and erosion control plan and report shall be submitted for review and approval by the County Engineer. Plans must be approved prior to recording the Final Plat. A Development Agreement that details the required improvements costs estimates and collateral must be submitted with Final Plat materials, approved and recorded with the Final Plat. An access permit will be required prior to any construction; 2. A road maintenance covenant that clearly states the property owners' rights and responsibilities regarding the use of the common access road must be submitted. The covenant must be reviewed and approved prior to recording with the Final Plat; 3. The Final Plat shall include dedication of additional right-of-way to meet the half right-of-way requirement of 50' for County Road 10 along the frontage of the property; 4. The 25' wide access and utility easement shall be platted to the common lot line between the lots. The area required for the access turnaround at this location shall be included as part of the access easement; 5. 5. Reservation of 25' of right-of-way along the western boundary of the property shall be provided on the Final Plat for future public access. The 25' wide access and utility easement serving the two lots in this development would be included in the area of reserved right-of-way; 6. Existing easements and rights-of-way of record and as requested by utility providers must be included on the Final Plat. Easements for irrigation facilities must be provided on the Final Plat; 7. Prior to submitting the Final Plat the property must be surveyed for wetlands. The delineation of any wetlands on the property must be done and the locations mapped on the Final Plat. If wetlands are located on the property, the plat should note that the US Army Corps of Engineers may require permits for activities which require placement of fill material or excavation in streams or wetlands at this location and that the Corps of Engineers should be contacted for more information prior to beginning such work; 8. The following notes shall be included on the Final Plat or in a disclosure affidavit to be recorded with the Final 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 these facilities may result in a lien being placed on these lots by Larimer County; b) 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; c) Engineered footing and foundation plans shall be required for all construction on these lots; d) The following fees shall be collected at building permit issuance for new single family dwellings: Thompson R2-J school fees (in lieu of dedication) and Larimer County fees for County and Regional Transportation Capital Expansion and Larimer County Park Fee (in lieu of dedication). The fee amount current at time of building permit application shall apply; e) Underground utilities shall be required; f) Soil test data revealed slow percolation rates that will necessitate the use of an engineer-designed evaporative-type sewer system on this site. These systems are larger and more expensive to construct than a conventional septic system; g) Rural area issues 1) Agricultural uses are present in this area which may at times result in odors, dust and noise at any time of the day or night, seven days a week. 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; 2) Lot owners should be advised that there is a potential for nuisance conflicts from wildlife (such as skunks, raccoons, prairie dogs and snakes). Larimer County is not able to mitigate nuisances if they develop, although information on managing these issues is available. Information is also available from the Colorado Division of Wildlife; 3) 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; 4) 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; 5) This property is served by gravel roads. Lot owners should be aware that dust will be generated from traffic on these roads; 6) 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) A current letter of commitment from the Little Thompson Water District must be submitted prior to recording the Final Plat; 10) All conditions shall be met and the Final Plat recorded by May 22, 2001 or this approval shall be null and void.

2. AMENDED PLAT OF A PORTION OF LOT 1, COTTON WILLOW ESTATES, 6TH FILING AND LOTS 4-A AND 5-A OF THE AMENDED PLAT OF LOTS 4 AND 5, COTTON WILLOW ESTATES, 6TH FILING AND A PORTION OF THE SE 1/4 OF SECTION 30, T 8 N, R69 W: SE 1/4 30-08-69; ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF LARIMER COUNTY ROAD NO.52-E, AT THE INTERSECTION OF COUNTY ROAD 52-E AND COUNTY ROAD 54-G.

This is a request for an amended plat as described, to allow the consolidation of lots in conjunction with a Boundary Line Adjustment being processed concurrently. Staff findings are 1. Approval of this request will not create an increase in density; 2. Review comments as noted in the attachments to this report must be addressed by the applicant prior to recording of the Amended Plat; 3. The associated Boundary Line Adjustment application meets the requirements for Administrative Approval and will be signed subject to the approval of this request for an Amended Plat. Staff recommendation is approval of the request for an Amended Plat as submitted subject to the following conditions being completed prior to recording the Amended Plat 1. Complete Items 1 through 4, inclusive as noted in the staff review memo from Dale Greer dated December 5, 2000.

3. REU PRELIMINARY RURAL LAND PLAN: 3-08-69; GENERALLY LOCATED 4 1/2 MILES NORTH OF HIGHWAY 287 ON TAFT HILL ROAD, 1/4 MILE EAST ON COUNTY ROAD 60E.

This is a request for preliminary approval to divide 70 acres into three single-family home sites on 15 acres and 55 acres of private residual land protected from further development by a covenant for a minimum of 40 years. Staff findings are that the proposal is consistent with the policies of Section 5.8-Rural Land Use Process of the Larimer County Land Use Code. Support for the Reu Preliminary Rural Land Plan is based on the following 1. Applicant's planning and design rationale for the project, which is consistent with the RLUP; 2. Conservation values of the residual land, including continuation of existing ag use (grazing); 3. The plan is generally compatible with the existing neighboring land uses. Support for this proposed plan takes into consideration the various other land development and design options, particularly the 35-acre alternative, for which there is no County review. The greater number of residential units possible under the current RE-Rural Estate zoning of the property and the general development pressure within the immediate area for use-by-right 35-acre division of land supports our belief that this is an appropriate project. The site-based incentives (1 density bonus unit) is allowed under the RLUP's Administrative Process. As proposed, this project will also provide commensurate long-term benefits to citizens of Larimer County. Those benefits are summarized as 1. Protection of residual land with a 40-year protective covenant; 2. Homeowners' protective covenants with architectural controls; 3. Transportation capital expansion fees received from the project; 4. School and park fees received from the project; 5. Fewer residences than likely allowed through subdivision process; 6. Ability to influence design of project, as compared to use-by-right division of property into 35-acre parcels. Staff recommendation is approval of the Reu Preliminary Rural Land Plan. The following contingencies must be met prior to approval of final plat by the Board of County Commissioners 1. Internal road design and other engineering requirements, including utilities, access points/driveways, roads, right-of-way dedication, storm water plan, and erosion control plan, shall meet minimum design standards set forth in Appendix G of the Larimer County Road Manual. Design shall be prepared and stamped by a qualified professional engineer licensed in the State of Colorado with review and approval by County Engineering Department; internal roads, if any, shall be dedicated and conveyed for public use; 2. The residual land protective covenant and management plan must be reviewed and approved by the County Attorney and the RLUC Director prior to final plat approval; 3. Homeowner's covenants must be reviewed and approved by the County Attorney prior to final plat approval. These covenants must specifically address internal road maintenance; 4. The final development agreement must be reviewed and approved by the County Attorney prior to final plat approval; 5. The following must be listed as a note on the final plat and on a disclosure statement, approved by the County Attorney, available to lot buyers through the public records at the time of purchase a) The construction of any single-family residence in this development will require the installation of residential fire sprinklers or written permission for variance from this requirement from the appropriate fire district. Fire hydrants and/or a public water supply are not present to provide fire protection; b) Some or all lots in this development include building envelopes. All structures must be located within these Larimer County approved building envelopes, as shown on the approved subdivision plat. Prior to the approval of the footing and foundation inspection, the owner/applicant for a building permit will be required to demonstrate that the structure(s) is located within the building envelope. This shall be accomplished by a written certification by a Colorado Licensed Surveyor (form available from the Larimer County Planning Department). If the structure requires a county Setback and Use Permit rather than a building permit, this surveyor's certification is also 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) Engineered footings and foundations are required for new residential construction; e) 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; f) 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; g) 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; h) Agricultural operations and farming practices on adjacent properties can produce odors, noise and dust. These are a normal part of agriculture and should be expected to occur. In addition, plowing, planting, cultivating, spraying, harvesting, and various livestock operations may be carried out at all times including nighttime; i) 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 should be coordinated with drainage and erosion control issues, siting of sanitation systems, fencing and feeding; j) Larimer County has adopted a Right to Farm Resolution; j) Larimer County shall not maintain roads or streets in this development. 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; l) The following fees shall be collected at building permit issuance for new single-family dwellings: Poudre R-1 school fees, Larimer County fees for County and Regional Transportation Capital Expansion, Larimer County Park Fee (in lieu of dedication), and Rural Land Use Process fees. The fee amount that is current at time of building permit application shall apply; m) At time of real estate closing, owner shall provide purchasers of residential lots and residual lands with the Code of the West, a County document which addresses differences between urban and rural living in Larimer County; n) 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; 6. An access easement shall be dedicated across adjoining land owned by the applicant to access that portion of the residual land located west of Larimer and Weld Ditch.

4. ALVERSON PRELIMINARY RURAL LAND PLAN TIME EXTENSION: 35-4-70; GENERALLY LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 6 MILES WEST OF STATE HIGHWAY 287 AND ONE MILE SOUTH OF THE INTERSECTION OF COUNTY ROAD 4 AND COUNTY ROAD 27E.

This is a request to extend the Preliminary approval for the Alverson Preliminary Rural Land Plan for six months beyond the allowed 90 days stated in the Rural Land Use Process. Staff findings are 1. The Alverson Preliminary Rural Land Plan was approved November 15, 1999, with conditions; 2. The applicant is requesting a six-month time extension to submit the Final Plat, Final Development Agreement and other required submittals; 3. The proposed project is important because it is compatible with other land conservation efforts in the area, as well as, the proposed extension of the public trails. Developing through the RLUP, rather than the other development alternatives, will provide significant benefits to Larimer County. Staff recommendation is approval of the six-month extension of the Preliminary Plan until August 12, 2001. All conditions of approval as stated in the Findings and Resolution dated November 15, 1999, continue to apply.

5. WESTCHASE PLANNED DEVELOPMENT PHASE 2: NE CORNER OF TIMBERLINE ROAD AND TRILBY.

This is a request for Planned Development approval for a Church at Tract H (4.6 acres) of the Westchase PUD, and modification to the Fort Collins/Larimer County IGA Standards found at Appendix I.I.F.b.(1) and (4)(a). Staff findings are 1. The subject request for modification to Appendix I.I.F.b.(1) and (4)(a) will not adversely effect the use of the properties in the current and future neighborhoods surrounding the subject site; 2. The subject request will not adversely effect the health, safety and welfare of the surrounding neighborhood. Staff recommendation is approval of the amendment to the Westchase PUD with the modifications to the Fort Collins/Larimer County IGA Standards found at Appendix I.I.F.b.(1) and (4)(a).

6. LARIMER COUNTY TRANSIT SERVICES ACTION PLAN

Staff findings are that adoption of the Transit Services Action Plan will help provide policy guidance for future planning and development of transit services within the context of broader transportation planning within Larimer County. It provides a basic framework to build upon as transportation planning is carried forward. Staff recommendation is adoption of the Larimer County Transit Services Action Plan.

7. SAMPSON SPECIAL REVIEW: 28-06-68; ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD 30 AND NORTH OF THE FORT COLLINS/LOVELAND AIRPORT. LOCATED ON LOT 2 LEACH MRD

This is a request for Special Review approval of a combined residential and light industrial workshop. The workshop will be used to develop helicopter design concepts by the owner and resident. The applicant is requesting a waiver from the public sewer requirements and by separate application is also requesting to amend the single family dwelling only requirement of the Leach MRD Lot 2. Staff recommendation is A. Denial of the request for Waiver of the Growth Management overlay Zone requirement for public sewer. B. Approval of the Sampson Special Review application with the following conditions 1. Public sewer shall be required; 2. A development agreement be submitted by the applicant and approved by Larimer County prior to submitting building permit plans for approval of the structure; 3. A disclosure statement regarding airport operations and an aviation easement, approved by the airport authority, will be recorded with the development agreement and made a part of the land record associated with this parcel; 4. A fire hydrant will be installed prior to issuance of the certificate of occupancy unless a revised letter is received from the Poudre Fire Authority eliminating this requirement; 5. A hazardous materials plan shall be submitted to the Larimer County Health Department for review and approval; 6. The full capital expansion fee shall be paid at building permit for drainage, County road and regional roads as required by the potential use and size of the structure and regardless of the family research and development use proposed unless a modification agreement is approved by the Larimer County Engineering Department and the Larimer County attorneys office; 7.

A drainage plan, a traffic narrative, plans for construction of paved access drive sections, parking and access shall be submitted to the Larimer County engineer for approval, consistent with the letter dated, December 11, 2000; 9. This constitutes a site specific development plan, the approval of which triggers a vested property right pursuant to state and local law. Failure to abide by the terms and conditions of the approval and the representations made in the special review submittal file 00-Z1375 will result in forfeiture of the vested property right; 10. Failure to comply with any conditions of this Special Review approval and the signed development agreement required by this approval may result in reconsideration of the use and possible revocation of the approval by the Board of Commissioners.

8. LEACH MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT, LOT 2 AMENDED: 28-06-68; ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD 30 AND NORTH OF THE FORT COLLINS/LOVELAND AIRPORT

This is a request to amend the single family dwelling only requirement of the Leach Minor Residential Development to allow for a special review for a combined residential and light industrial workshop on the property. Staff recommendation is approval of the request to remove the condition of approval from the Leach Minor Residential Development 97-EX1127 for Lot 2 that restricts uses on the lot to single family residential use only.

Chair Olson stated the W.O.L.F. Show Cause Hearing of January 2, 2001 was continued to this date so a Stipulation and Agreement could be drawn up between the County and W.O.L.F. Ms. Haag stated that she and the attorney for W.O.L.F., Mr. James Mackler, have reviewed the document and both parties agree with the contents. Mr. Mackler noted for the record that he and his client are in agreement with the contents of the Stipulation and Agreement.

Commissioner Rennels requested staff explain the road maintenance plan requirement, which was part of the original special review approval. Ms. Evans stated that the applicant was required to submit a road maintenance plan addressing access issues for emergency service providers, which the applicant provided. The maintenace plan was deemed acceptable by the Rist Canyon Volunteer Fire Department. The private dispute over use and maintenance of the access road by W.O.L.F. has not yet been resolved. The Board of County Commissioners does not have authority or jurisdiction to decide this issue. Ms. Evans then read the statement contained within the original conditions of approval for the Special Review, which states: "If legal authority to use the access road is denied by a court of competent jurisdiction, this Special Review use shall terminate without further action from the Board of County Commissioners".
