MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

 

Monday, MAY 8, 2006

LAND USE HEARING

(#52)

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 3:00 p.m. with Rob Helmick, Principal Planner.  Chair Pro-Tem Wagner presided, and Commissioner Rennels was present.  (Commissioner Gibson joined the meeting after it was already in progress.)  Also present were: Karin Madson, and Casey Stewart, Planning Department; Doug Ryan, Environmental Health Department; Matthew Johnson, and Ed Woodward, Engineering Department; Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney; and Gael Cookman and Kristen Romary, Deputy Clerks. 

Chair Pro-Tem Wagner opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance, and asked for public comment on the County Budget and the Land Use Code.  No one from the audience addressed the Board regarding these topics.  Chair Pro-Tem Wagner explained that Items 1 through 3 were on consent and would not be discussed unless requested by the Board, staff, or members of the audience:

 

1.  GARDELS PIT LOW WATER CROSSING FLOOD PLAIN SPECIAL REVIEW (FPSR):  This is a request for Flood Plain Special Review approval based on the Flood Review Board’s recommendation.  Coulson Excavating needed to improve an old low water crossing that was used in conjunction with the Brownwood Gravel Pit in order to mine in the Gardels Gravel Pit.  The Land Use Code requires that the proposed low water crossing receive a recommendation from the Flood Review Board, with final approval from the Board of County Commissioners through a Flood Plain Special Review.  There have been no objections to this issue by Staff or the Flood Review Board.

The Flood Review Board met on Thursday, March 23, 2006, and reviewed the revised floodplain analysis modeling report dated March 3, 2006, provided by Weiland, Inc.  The Board reviewed all of the information presented and voted to recommend approval of the FPSR with one condition: that the channel embankments also be included as part of the reclamation of historic elevations and dimensions after the low water crossing is removed.

All review criteria of the Land Use Code have been met.  Therefore, the Staff recommends approval of the FPSR for the low water crossing with one condition: that the channel embankments also be included as part of the reclamation of historic elevations and dimensions after the low water crossing is removed. 

 

2.  LINDENWOOD 1ST FILING LOT 8 EASEMENT VACATION – #06-S2557:  This is a request to vacate a portion of the 20-foot utility easement along the back property line in order to resolve an encroachment issue.  This application was forwarded to the appropriate departments and agencies for comment; there were no objections to this proposal.

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Lindenwood 1st Filing Lot 8 Utility Easement Vacation in order to vacate a portion of the 20-foot utility easement along the back property line to resolve an encroachment issue.

 

3. FRONT RANGE CONDOMINIUMS CONDOMINIUM MAP - #06-S2557:  This is a request to convert existing duplex units into condominium units, in an effort to provide an alternative for affordable housing in the area. 

The application was referred to the Building Department for comment.  Comments from Stan Griep, dated March 30, 2006, indicate that there may be required modifications to the structures for the change from the existing duplexes into condominium units.  The applicant should contact the Building Department regarding any Building Code requirements.

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Front Range Condominiums Condominium Map subject to the following conditions:

 

1.    The final submittal of the Condominium Map for signature shall be accompanied by an Ownership & Encumbrance report that identifies the current property owner and any lienholders. 

2.    The Condominium Map shall be revised to include the following note:  "The new units created by this action are subject to the same restrictions, covenants, and regulations as set forth in the plat of record of Vine Drive Subdivision."

 

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve Items 1 through 3 as presented on the Consent Agenda and outlined above.

Motion carried 2-0.

 

4.  WYATT APPEAL - #06-G0109:  This is a request to appeal Section 4.8.9.B of the Land Use Code that contains regulations for expanding nonconforming buildings.  This section of the Code limits the amount a nonconforming building can be expanded to, which is not more than 25% of the square footage of the original building that legally existed on January 1, 2000, and not more than 1000 square feet.  The same section requires the addition to be outside of the respective setback. 

 

The applicant proposes to add on to their existing residence to improve it structurally and increase the living area.  The existing building is approximately 67 feet from the centerline of the stream that runs near their house.  The required setback from a stream is 100 feet from the centerline.  The residence is non-conforming with respect to the required creek setback.  The residence was constructed around 1965, prior to the setback requirement, and the owner wants to add on to the existing structure to the rear (north), which would be further from the stream than the current building.  The addition size is more than 25% (Existing = 788 square feet; addition = 1425 square feet) of the floor area of the existing building.  The closest point of the addition would be 95 feet from the creek and extend back from the stream.

The following agencies provided comments regarding this proposal: The Engineering Department stated that the existing dwelling is located within close proximity of a stream and encourages the applicant to confirm that the lowest opening of the addition is set above the 100-year flood limits of the stream to minimize structural damage and injury in the event of a major flood event.  The stream has not been studied by FEMA and therefore has no FEMA designated floodplain; The Department of Health/Environment could not find a permit for the existing septic system and therefore the adequacy of the existing septic system will need to be assessed during the building permit application process.  If it does not meet standards for a septic system, the owners must obtain a permit for the modifications to do so; The Code Compliance Department found no land use or building code violations of record. 

Mr. Stewart addressed the Board, and explained that this request does meet all the necessary criteria required for the project to proceed.  The applicant, Norman Wyatt, addressed the Board.  Mr. Wyatt stated that the septic system has been reviewed by the Health Department and it can accommodate their two-bedroom home.  Mr. Wyatt stated that the home is 13 to 15 feet above the water and they have never had an issue with flooding.  He requested the Board's support of his appeal.

Mr. Ryan addressed the issue of a septic system and assured the Board that it would be examined, but he believed that the capacity of the sewer system should be acceptable.  The development services Team finds the appeal meets the review criteria as outlined in the Land Use Code.

There was no public comment on this item.

 

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the appeal to Section 4.8.9.B of the Larimer County Land Use Code to expand a nonconforming dwelling by more than 25% and to allow the expansion to be within the required setback from a stream. 

Motion carried 2-0.

 

5.  SPIEGEL APPEAL - #06-G0110:  This is a request to appeal Section 4.8.9.B.2 of the Larimer County Land Use Code that contains regulations for expanding nonconforming buildings.  This request is to expand a nonconforming dwelling within the front setback.

The applicant has constructed a 126 square foot attached shed and greenhouse by framing and covering what used to be a fenced area immediately adjacent to, and on the side of the existing attached garage.  The existing residence is 13 feet from the front lot line and is therefore considered nonconforming.  The addition is 126 square feet and is about 21 feet from the front lot line (25 feet is the required setback).  Since the addition is within the setback, but would be no closer than the existing building, the owner has submitted an appeal to expand the nonconforming dwelling.

The following agencies provided comments regarding this proposal: The Engineering Department has no objections to this appeal; The Department of Health/Environment has no objections to this appeal.  Water and sewer service are provided by public utility providers and the addition will not interfere with those services; and the Code Compliance department stated no known code violations, other than this addition which was started without a building permit.  A condition addressing this violation is listed in the recommendation at the end of this report.

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Spiegel Appeal, subject to the following condition:

1.    The applicant shall obtain all required permits and inspections for the addition within 30 days of appeal approval.

 

Mr. Stewart addressed the Board and provided background history on the property and additional information pertaining to the request.  He stated that there have been previous building and zoning violations attached to this property, but by approving the appeal, it would clear up all existing infringements.  Two written objections have been received from property owners in the vicinity. These objections discuss the junk in the yard and the negative impact the property and the addition has on neighborhood property values.  The Code Compliance department visited the property at the end of 2005 and found no Land Use Code violations on the property.  The Land Use Code does not regulate the color or appearance of the addition, as long as it complies with the residential building code.  There have been no objections to this proposal by any county departments or public utility providers.  The lot is accessed from an internal subdivision road, not a county road; therefore, the project will have no increased impact to county roads.   The addition would not subvert the purpose of the Code and will have little if no impact on the surrounding area.

Applicant Charles Spiegel presented photos of the area that used to be fenced in, which they have now enclosed.  Mr. Spiegel explained that he probably should have known to apply for a building permit, but they enclosed it over a period of years and never thought to obtain a permit.

 

There was no public comment on this item.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Spiegel Appeal along with the conditions outlined above.

 

Motion carried 2-0.

 

At this time Commissioner Gibson joined the meeting.

 

6.    THREE BELLS PIT APPEAL - #06-G0103:  This is a request to appeal the decision of the Planning Director, which would require an amendment to the Special Review.

The Three Bells pit is an existing gravel pit, originally approved in 1979, and amended in 1982.  It is located North and East of the Poudre River as well as north of, and adjacent to, County Road 32E.  The site is located in the Windsor Growth Management Area (GMA) but is not adjacent to the town limits.  The applicant, Lafarge West Inc., has submitted this request in response to the written determination by the Planning Director regarding the need to apply for an amendment to an existing Special Review Permit, File #62-79, which was amended in 1982.  In the fall of 2005 the applicant inquired about reentry and commencement of mining for the pit known as Three Bells Ranch.  In a preliminary determinations it was recommended that Lafarge West Inc., apply and proceed through an amendment to Special Review process, or approach the Board of County Commissioners to evaluate the previous approvals.  This was based upon the changed conditions in the neighborhood and that operations at the site had not been actively pursued for over 4 years.  On February 13, 2006, the Planning Director issued a final determination which required that “reentry or reopening” involved review and approval of an amended Special Review. 

The Development Services Team findings are as follows: On March 8, 2006, Lafarge West Inc. submitted an appeal of the Planning Director’s decision with respect to the need for an amendment to the Special Review.  The Staff advised the Board of County Commissioners to make a determination that the Larimer County Planning Commission review of the appeal was not necessary.  A hearing was set for May 8, 2006, and referrals were distributed.

The applicant disagreed with the interpretation that the approvals of the County in 1979 and 1982 relied upon a stated 15 year time frame.  They did not disagree that 15 years was not made a specific condition of approval, but believe that the time frame for mining was clearly expected to not exceed the 15 years.  It is now 24 years past the most recent approval of the Board of County Commissioners for mining at this site, and conditions in the immediate area have changed significantly.  The Ptarmigan subdivision has been expanding, the Town of Windsor is growing, and the property is in the GMA of Windsor.  Furthermore, there are wildlife issues which were not a part of the context at the time of the original approval.  The presence of a bald eagle nest within ˝ mile of this site also needs to be considered.  Referral responses indicate that conditions have changed and that it is appropriate to have a further review of the Three Bells pit.

Lafarge West Inc., in its arguments, has clearly indicated they did not close or abandon the site, but responded to market and other conditions and mined other resources.  They believe they have kept their permits active for this site and now have the need to reenter the property.  The applicant makes an offer to commit to certain “additional” restrictions related to hauling, batch plant use, hours of operation, and noise.  While these are possibly reasonable accommodations, there has not been a Special Review amendment to insure that these proposals are appropriate or adequate to protect the environment and surrounding residents.  After evaluation, the Staff believes the applicant has not met the burden of proof with respect to the decision of the Planning Director.

The Development Services Team recommends the Board of County Commissioners uphold the decision of the Planning Director with respect to the requirement that Lafarge West, Inc. must submit and have approved an amendment to the Special Review for the Three Bells Pit prior to reentering the site and commencing operations. 

Mr. Helmick addressed the Board, and provided information regarding the history of the Three Bells pit, and the amount of activity that has occurred there in the last several years.  He felt that based on this information, an amendment would be required.  Eric Reckentine, Area Manager of Lafarge West Inc., addressed the Board in response to Mr. Helmick, stating that it was imperative to begin mining on the Three Bells pit as soon as possible, and that the amendment process would take too long.  He felt that the applicant prides itself on being community conscience and is willing to work with Larimer County.  However, he stated that it is not uncommon to start mining in one location, move to another location, then move back to the original area based on economic changes and deposits.  Based on this, the applicant feels that they are authorized to continue mining the Three Bells pit.  James King, attorney for the applicant, addressed the board and proceeded to read from the 1979 and 1982 amendments. Discussion ensued between Mr. King and the Board regarding specific verbiage in both amendments.  Don Taranto, partial owner of the Three Bells property, informed the Board that there was a significant amount of citizen input regarding the mining of the adjacent Kyger pit, and he suggested that the same conditions applied to the Kyger pit could also be applied to the Three Bells pit.

At this time Chair Pro-Tem Wagner opened up the hearing for public comment.  Floyd Witherspoon and Dave Veldman both addressed the board in favor of mining the Three Bells pit.  They stated that Lafarge West Inc. has been a great neighbor and foresee the mining of Three Bells as a positive venture.  There was no further public comment.

Ms. Haag clarified the County's interpretation of the previous amendments, and stated that there was enough information to suggest that there was a 15 year time limit placed on the mining.  More discussion among the applicant and the Commissioners ensued.

 

M O T I O N

Commissioner Gibson moved to table the appeal to June 19, 2006 at 6:30 p.m.

Commissioner Rennels made a friendly amendment to the motion, to require the applicant to hold a public meeting prior to the hearing scheduled for June 19, 2006, and for Staff to draft conditions to be added to the original Three Bells pit Conditions of Approval.

Motion carried 3-0.

 

The hearing adjourned at 4:50 p.m.

PUBLIC IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT

HEARING FOR CROWN POINT SUBDIVISION

(#54)

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 6:30 p.m. with Rex Burns, Project Engineer.  Chair Gibson presided and Commissioners Wagner and Rennels were present.  Also present were:  Linda Sanders, Engineering Department; and Gael Cookman, Clerk to the Board.

Mr. Burns explained that the roads in the Crown Point Subdivision are in need of repair, and residents of the area are in favor of forming a PID to improve the asphalt street system.  After sending out notices of the proposed hearing, staff received one written letter from Leroy Mace, a resident of the Crown Point Subdivision.  In the letter, Mr. Mace addressed some concerns he had regarding the potential improvements.  These included the current problem of curbside damage due to over watering of lawns, drainage issues, and he questioned the overall process of repairing the street. 

Mr. Burns explained that 92.8% of the property owners signed the petition to place this issue on the November ballot.  Ms. Sanders addressed the Board and stated that due to the condition of the roads, the proposal is to raise $30,000 per year with a mill levy of 56.844 for the first three years.  Thereafter, the proposal is to lower the mill levy to 18.948 and raise $10,000 per year.  This averages out to $1,250 per lot for the first three years, and $416.67 starting with year four.  Up until this time, Crown Point has never had a formal means of collecting funds for their roads.  Chair Gibson questioned staff regarding who determines the cost of the improvements.  Ms. Sanders explained that it would be determined by the Road Board, appointed by the Board of County Commissioners.

Chair Gibson opened up the hearing for public comment and the following residents addressed the Board:  Lowell Kilzer, Brian Lins, Susan McGinley, Rod Bledsoe, Helen Brautigam, and Tara Tooley.  All were in favor of creating the PID which would enhance the integrity of the neighborhood, and increase their investments.  Ms. Tooley thanked the Board and the Engineering Staff for their hard work, and was eager to see the drainage issues resolved.

Chair Gibson closed public comment.  The Commissioners thanked the citizens for their efforts and encouraged them to vote on this issue in the upcoming November election.
