8. KAPPERMAN SUBDIVISION PRELIMINARY PLAT: 10-06-69; APPROXIMATELY 1/2 MILE EAST OF COUNTY ROAD 19 (TAFT HILL RD.) ON THE NORTH SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD 34 (TRILBY) JUST SOUTH OF THE CITY OF FORT COLLINS.

This is a request for a Preliminary Plat to divide Lot 4 of the Scheel Minor Residential Development, being 10 acres in size, into 2 lots for single family residential uses. Staff recommendation is denial.

Mr. Wheeler stated that staff is recommending denial of the proposal for several reasons including but not limited to lack of compatibility with existing and permitted land uses; failure to comply with Section 8 of the Land Use Code as well inconsistencies with the Plan for the Region Between Fort Collins and Loveland.

Mr. Kapperman, the applicant stated that the adjacent property owners have put in writing, their willingness to add a cul-de-sac extending Laeda Lane, if they ever develop. Mr. Kapperman further stated that the proposal is consistent and compatible with the existing lots to the east. Mr. Kapperman stated his preference to provide an easement to the new lot, which would allow both residents to access Triby at one point.

Much discussion ensued as to who would actually access Laeda Lane; Mr. Timm suggested the final proposed alignment of Laeda Lane be addressed at Final Plat.

At this time the hearing was opened for public comment and Mr. Gene Kapperman, adjacent property owner stated that an extension of Laeda Lane would be very expensive due to the topography and the probable need for culverts and agreed the preferred option would be an easement through the existing lot.

Mr. Dick Rutherford, Engineer/Surveyor for the applicant noted that the plat provided in the packet on page 105 actually has the existing home located too far north by approximately 150-feet. Mr. Rutherford further clarified that the geological hazards in the area are not as severe as staff has reported.

The being no further public comment, the hearing was closed and Mr. Kapperman reiterated that the new lot would have an easement extending from the existing driveway, so there would be no additional accesses off Trilby Road.

Ms. Hayes stated that the Access Code/Policy requires 1700-feet between access on an arterial road for which most, if not all-existing accesses to Triby Road do not meet. Furthermore, Ms. Hayes continued staff is requiring full dedication of right-of-way for Laeda Lane but the improvements are limited at this time to 12-feet. If the applicant provides an easement from the existing driveway, the driveway would be considered a "multiple use" access, and the Appendix G Standards would apply to required improvements.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Gibson moved that the Board of County Commissioners table the Kapperman Subdivision Preliminary Plat to February 11, 2002 at 3:00 p.m. to allow staff to consider possible conditions for long term compatibility and compliance.

Motion failed 1 - 2 with Chair Rennels and Commissioner Bender dissenting.

Motion carried 2 - 0 with Commissioner Gibson dissenting.

9. DISCUSSION OF ROAD ISSUES:

  • Highland Hills/ Highland Meadows Connection: Ms. Peterson stated that Highland Hills was developed in Larimer County with a conditional of approval for a reserved right-of-way (ROW) for future connectivity. This ROW was not required to be constructed at time of approval, only reserved. The adjacent property, Mr. Engemoen continued is located within the Town of Windsor and has submitted application for development. The Town is requesting that Larimer County now improve that ROW at a cost of approximately $15,000 - $20,000. Consensus of the Board is for staff to work with the Homeowners Association (HOA) toward the possibility of forming an improvement district to pay for the improvement. If HOA does not want the improvement, Windsor could make the improvement upon annexation.

  • Virginia Dale Gate: Mr. Miller stated that the historic Virginia Dale Stage House is located on private property and the owners have requested permission to "gate" the County Road leading to the site in order to deter public access to his property. Commissioner Rennels stated that the Virginia Dale Association has renovated the Stage House and since then, someone has placed the Stage House on the Internet, causing an influx of public traffic and vandalism to the House. Mr. Engemoen suggested one option to be considered is for the County to vacate the road since it leads to private property and currently the County "blades" the road once or twice a year but is otherwise maintained by the two residents. Vacating, Mr. Engemoen continued would allow for a gate at the Highway 14 entrance where information regarding the Stage House could be posted as well as directions to and visitation times since it is private property. Much discussion ensued regarding access to a historical marker and the rights of the property owner on which the marker is located.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve an unlocked gate at the "rock out".

Chair Gibson expressed safety concerns with turning around at this location.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

  • County Road 70 and County Road 15 Intersection: Mr. Miller briefed the Board regarding improvements to this intersection and noted that the accident history has been drastically reduced. However, Mr. Miller stated that "stop bars" would be added to County Road 15 prior to the intersection to assist vehicles in noting a safe stopping location. Mr. Peterson further stated that utility location has been ordered for the intersection to see if the stop signs can be moved closer to the intersection.

10. REQUEST TO DISCONTINUE PAY FOR PERFORMANCE PLAN IN THE FLEET DEPARTMENT: Mr. Engemoen stated that several years ago the Fleet Department was selected to try a "Pay for Performance Plan" and is now requesting to drop that plan because some employees are expecting performance pay on a regular annual basis in addition to a market increases. Mr. Brown stated that the plan doesn't seem to fit the department and is causing morale problems. Mr. Engemoen stated that the ability to recognize employee outstanding performance continues through the County Bonus Policy, but that staff is requesting the plan, not the policy, be discontinued at this time.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Bender moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve discontinuing the Pay for Performance Plan currently in place for the Fleet Department.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

11. WORK SESSION: Mr. Lancaster noted that currently that the public comment section of Administrative Matters is not recorded nor is it reflected in the minutes and requested at minimum, a citizens name and topic of discussion be mentioned in the minutes and recorded in the same manner as the balance of the meeting. Commissioner Rennels stated that she had received several inquiries on public comment and suggested that the citizen and their issue be noted for the record. Consensus of the Board is to record public comment and for the minutes of the meeting to contain a citizen's name and their issue.

Ms. Hart stated that Elitches Garden has sent notice to the County regarding Elitches Day for employees and noted that the cost of a ticket for the County would be $16.00, of which an employee could purchase for $12.00. Consensus of the Board is to purchase the normal amount of tickets at $16.00/each for Eliches Day.

Mr. Lancaster stated that a request has been received from the Youth Advisory Board (YAB) for financial assistance in holding their 1st graduation. Commissioner Rennels explained that the YAB works with "at risk kids" in achieving a GED and they are about to hold their first graduation. Consensus of the Board is to contribute up to $350 dollars from Commissioners Special Project Fund.

12. COMMISSIONER REPORTS: The Board attended their regularly scheduled community meetings.

13. LEGAL MATTERS: Mr. Hass stated that when the County held an election to "De-Bruce" three-years ago; the ballot language was for De-Brucing in perpetuity. Archuleta County, Mr. Hass continued also De-Bruced with similar ballot language and was sued in District Court and won. However, Mr. Hass noted the petitioner has now filed the case with the Appellate Court. Mr. Hass asked if the Board would like him to file an Amicae Brief on the case, which should not cost more than $5000. Commissioner Rennels agreed with filing the brief in support of what the citizens of the County voted for. Commissioner Bender agreed.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners authorize Mr. Hass, County Attorney to file an Amicae Brief on behalf of Archuleta County and the voters of Larimer County.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

Ms. Haag informed the Board that currently, joint plans have been developed with the City of Fort Collins and the State of Colorado regarding the "Mulberry Corridor" and "South College Corridor" with respect to development and improvements. Although there is an Intergovernmental Agreement between the three parties, Ms. Haag continued to honor the "idea" behind the plans, no money has been allocated for implementation. Ms. Haag notified the Board that they may receive phone calls regarding this matter and stated that she would be meeting with the attorney for the City of Fort Collins to discuss the matter further.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 12:15 p.m.
