3. BORESEN PRELIMINARY RURAL LAND PLAN: 25-10-69; GENERALLY LOCATED 10 MILES NORTHWEST OF WELLINGTON, APPROXIMATELY 4 MILES NORTH OF WAVERLY AT THE INTERSECTION OF COUNTY ROADS 15 AND 76.

This is a request to divide 70 acres into 3 single-family units, including the existing home site, all situated on no more than 18 acres (up to 6 acres each, depending on the on-site septic system requirements), and approximately 52 acres of residual land protected from further development for a minimum of 40-years. Support for the Boresen 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 preservation of open space; 3. Careful location of residences; 4. The plan is generally compatible with the existing neighboring land uses; 5. Ability of residual land to serve as a buffer between Waverly, LaPorte, and Fort Collins.

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 O-Open zoning of the property and the general development pressure within the immediate area for use-by-right 35-acre division of land supports that this is an appropriate project.

The site-based incentives (1 density bonus units) are allowed under the Administrative Rural Land Use Process.

As proposed, this project will also provide commensurate long-term benefits to citizens of Larimer County. Those benefits are 1. Protective covenant on residual land; 2. Preservation of open space and existing ag operation.; 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 Boresen 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, roads, road easement 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. Roads shall be contained in a private access and utility easement and roads shall not be required to be in a public right-of-way; 2. The residual land protective covenant and management plans must be reviewed and approved by the County Attorney and the RLUC Director prior to final plat approval; 3. The final development agreement must be reviewed and approved by the County Attorney prior to final plat approval; 4. Unless required in writing by the local fire protection district, automatic fire protection sprinklers will not be required if the new residences are at least 200' apart; 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) 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; b) Engineered footings and foundations are required for new residential construction; c) Lot owners should be advised that there is a potential for nuisance conflicts from wildlife (such as skunks, mountain lions, bears, 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; d) 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; e) 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; f) 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; g) 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; h) Larimer County has adopted a Right to Farm Resolution; i) 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 Fees (in lieu of dedication), and Rural Land Use Process fees. The fee amount that is current at time of building permit application shall apply; j) 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; k) 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) 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; m) 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; n) Lots in this Rural Land Plan are subject to the conditions and requirements of a Development Agreement. The Developer and Larimer County executed this agreement in consideration of the approval of this Development. This Agreement was recorded immediately after this plat. All purchasers should obtain and read the Development Agreement.

4. RISTVUE II PRELIMINARY RURAL LAND PLAN TIME EXTENSION: 28, 29, 32, AND 33-08-70; GENERALLY LOCATED 4 1/2 MILES WEST OF BELLVUE ALONG COUNTY ROAD 52E (RIST CANYON ROAD) AND ROUGHLY 1/2 MILE UP THE DAVIS RANCH ROAD.

This is a request to extend the Preliminary approval for the RistVue II Preliminary Rural Land Plan for six months beyond the allowed 90 days stated in the Rural Land Use Process. Staff findings include 1. The RistVue II Preliminary Rural Land Plan was approved February 26, 2001, 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. 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 November 27, 2002. All conditions of approval as stated in the Findings and Resolution dated February 26, 2002, continue to apply.

5. UDY SUBDIVISION RELEASE OF COLLATERAL: SE 5-7-69; ON THE WEST SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD 21(OVERLAND TRAIL), ABOUT 300' NORTH OF COUNTY ROAD 48 (VINE DRIVE)

This is a request for release of collateral for the Udy Subdivision and establishing Warranty Collateral period. Staff recommendation is approval of the request to release the original collateral for the Udy Subdivision, the waiver of street light installation, and the acceptance of the Warranty Memorandum and warranty collateral with a three year warranty period.

6. AMENDED PLAT OF THE REPLAT OF PLEASANT ACRES SUBDIVISION, 2ND FILING, INCLUDING BLOCK 3, LOT 3 AND PORTIONS OF LOTS 2 AND 4; NORTHEAST 1/4 OF SECTION 17, TOWNSHIP 7 NORTH, RANGE 68 WEST; PLEASANT ACRES SUBDIVISION, 2ND FILING OFF KIMBERLY ROAD SOUTH OF MULBERRY AVENUE AND SUMMIT VIEW DRIVE (APPROXIMATELY 1/4 MILE WEST OF INTERSTATE 25).

7. LARIMER COUNTY LANDFILL MINOR LAND DIVISION: 9-6-69; LOCATED NORTHWEST OF TRILBY ROAD 1/2 MILE WEST OF TAFT HILL ROAD IN THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THE LARIMER COUNTY LANDFILL SITE.

This is a request by the Fort Collins Loveland Water District to divide a 3.14-acre parcel from the Larimer County Landfill to allow the construction of up to two 1 million-gallon domestic water storage tanks. Staff recommendation is approval of the Larimer County Landfill Minor Land Division, file # 02-S1939, subject to the following 1. The site is to be used only for water storage and transmission facilities constructed and maintained by the Water District; 2. The tank(s) shall not exceed 35 feet in height, and shall be of a color that is consistent with the surrounding natural features, such color to be mutually agreed upon by the Water District and the Larimer County Planning Department; 3.

Prior to the installation of the landscaping, the Water District shall submit the landscape plan to the Larimer County Planning Department for review and comments; 5. The final Minor Land Division Plat shall eliminate the access to the water tank site (the flag pole) as part of the fee transfer and grant instead an easement for access; 6. The Water District shall not be allowed to install fence or otherwise obstruct the access easement in a manner that would limit the ability of the County to cross the access easement and/or utilize the County's property. The County shall not place any other restrictions on the access easement that would limit the ability of the Water District to access the tank site, such as limiting the type of vehicles or hours of operation; 7. This approval shall expire if the final plat is not recorded within one year of the date of approval.

8. DISCUSSION ON WHETHER TO ESTABLISH A LAND USE CODE ADVISORY BOARD AND TO DISCONTINUE THE LAND USE CODE CITIZENS TECHNICAL MONITORING COMMITTEE: Mr. Timm stated that this topic came as the result of a work session last week with the Planning Commission, staff and the Board. Several Planning Commission members addressed the Board stating that yet another governmental board would extend the process, cost money and efforts would be duplicated with this board and the purpose of the Planning Commission. Mr. Korb stated that the proposed board is a solution in search of a problem. Mr. Morgan suggested that the Planning Commission hold informal meetings for "out reach" to the public regarding the Land Use Code. Ms. Karen Rose, a member of the group that originally proposed the board, stated that the original intent has been lost. Ms. Rose stated that the development of the Land Use Code never included the "users" of the Code such as developers and property owners.

Commissioner Rennels noted that the Planning Commission and the Board should hear the concerns of citizens and suggested leaving the monitoring committee in place and aggressively approach comments over the next 6-months.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

10. BRIEFING ON COUNTY OFFERING BENEFITS THROUGH AMERICAN FAMILY LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY (AFLAC): Mr. Jacobs briefed the Board regarding benefits, current and future, through AFLAC, a current County provider. Mr. Jacobs requested that AFLAC be allowed to market additional insurance products to County employees, at the employees' cost, and in exchange AFLAC will monitor the current County Flexible Spending Accounts. Currently, Mr. Jacob continued, the County is looking at the purchase of new software for Flex Spending and that the time and resources allocated toward monitoring is very consuming. Mr. Jacob stated that discussions with AFLAC could be a real "win-win" for both the County and AFLAC. The County would save employee resources and the cost of new software; AFLAC could potentially gain additional accounts. The Board concurred with Mr. Jacobs and thanked him for the update.

11. WAIVE HIRING POLICY FOR THE HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT: Ms. Snell requested the Board waive the advertising requirement to fill a one-year position at the HUB. Currently, Ms. Snell continued the HUB has an intern working and they would like to hire that person.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve a waiver of the hiring policy requiring advertising for a limited term position at the HUB.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

12. RETIREMENT BOARD BRIEFING ON BUDGET REQUEST: Mr. Rutherford stated that the board originally requested $30,000 for consulting fees to have an outside review of the County retirement plan to verify all that can be done with employee retirement is being done.

15. LEGAL MATTERS: Mr. Helmick stated that the Bureau of Reclamation is requesting the Board amend the conditions of approved for the Stegner Pit Special Review, which currently allows no more than 10 trips south on Taft Hill per day. The request, Mr. Helmick continued is due to work at the Horsetooth damns. Consensus of the Board is to schedule a public hearing as soon as possible.

The second discussion item, Mr. Helmick stated is a letter from W.O.L.F. requesting the addition of two pups to provide companionship to an existing animal due to the untimely death of the previous companion. Mr. Helmick noted that a current condition of approval for the W.O.L.F. Special Review requires compliance with a specified number of animals through attrition, and stated the request does not meet the condition. Commissioner Rennels stated that she does not support increasing the number of animals allowed and reiterated that the Board had previously requested the cooperation of the applicant with any future concerns.
