Staff recommendation is 1. To remove the lot sale restriction and to execute a new development agreement for lot 5-12 of the Willows subdivision and authorization for the chairman to sign the resolution removing the lot sale restriction and the development agreement when the development agreement is presented for signature; 2. Staff recommends approval of the amended plat as presented and with the following conditions 1.

Any survey issues with respect to the Amended Plat are resolved with the Larimer County Engineering Department; 3.

The applicant shall revise the covenants to reflect a prohibition of livestock on lot 4-7 of the amended plat. And authorization for the chairman to sign the plat when the conditions are met and the plat is presented for signature.
Mr. Chilson expressed concern with the "driveway" extending from the cul-de-sac to the lower boundary of lot 7 and that it is not required to be paved. Mr. Chilson noted that this "driveway" is at the top of the ridge and dust from the drive would blow at the adjacent lots. Mr. Chilson also asked why this application is not required to have a secondary access.
Mr. Helmick stated that the application is for an Amended Plat and therefore is not required to comply with the Land Use Code. As for paving of the driveway, Mr. Helmick noted that the number of vehicle trips daily is not sufficient to require pavement. The applicant however, has proposed upgrading the materials used for the drive in order to mitigate dust.
Mr. Greg Muhonen, the applicant noted that rejuvenated recycled asphalt is proposed and would mitigate dust potential. Mr. Muhonen further informed the Board that he had contacted three adjacent property owners regarding an easement for a secondary access, but to no avail.
Much discussion ensued regarding the intention of the 1979 originally submitted subdivision with respect to the "driveway".
Chair Bender noted that the main concern is dust mitigation and questioned why there is no condition of approval to address the issue. Mr. Helmick stated that the applicant has submitted a Construction Plan, which addresses the issue and the proposed solution exceeds required standards.
Commissioner Gibson stated that the "driveway" should be paved since the original application submitted in 1979 inferred pavement. Mr. Helmick stated that he could not interpret the intent of the 1979 submittal.
Commissioner Gibson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Willows Subdivision Amended Plat and add a 5th condition of approval requiring the "driveway" to be paved with bituminous hot asphalt.
Motion failed 1 - 1 with Chair Bender dissenting.
Further discussion ensued regarding the Construction Plan Agreement submitted and the "driveway". Mr. Helmick also noted that this item has two requests and requested the Board take separate action for each issue.
Commissioner Gibson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the removal of the lot sale restriction and accept the new development agreement for the Willows Subdivision as recommended and outlined above, and authorize the Chair to sing the Development Agreement and Resolution when presented for signature.
Motion carried 2 - 0.
Commissioner Gibson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the amended plat and right-of-way/ utility easement vacation for the Willows Subdivision Amended Plat as outlined above and in the Construction Agreement submitted, and authorize the Chair to sign the plat when presented for signature.
Motion carried 2 - 0.
4. GALLENSTEIN ZONING VIOLATION: 2817 W. COUNTY ROAD 54G
This is an alleged violation of Land Use Code Section 4.1.2: Outdoor storage is not permitted in the FA1-Farming zoning district; and Section 21.1(C): It is unlawful to...use any real property that is inconsistent with the terms and conditions of any land use approval... Staff findings include 1. The property is zoned FA1-Farming; 2. The FA1-Farming zoning district does not permit outdoor storage; 3. Special Review approval was for a gravel mine. The approval was only through December of 2000; 4. The continued use of the property, in violation of the zoning regulations, will affect property values in the area; 5. The continued use of the property, in violation of zoning regulations, has affected the neighbor's ability to enjoy their own property. Staff recommendation is 1. Find that a violation exists; 2. Require compliance within 30 days. Compliance would require that all outdoor storage be removed; 3. Authorize legal action if the deadline is not met.
Ms. DeLude stated that she had spoke with Mr. Gallenstien earlier and that he has agreed to staff recommendations. Mr. Gallenstien concurred.
