MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

 

 

Monday, June 25, 2012

 

LAND USE HEARING

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 3:00 p.m. with Matt Lafferty, Principle Planner. Chair Gaiter presided and Commissioners Johnson and Donnelly were present. Also present were:  Clint Jones, Engineering Department; Rob Helmick, Brenda Gimeson, and Toby Stauffer, Planning Department; Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney; and Gael Cookman, Deputy Clerk.

  

Chair Gaiter opened the hearing with the Pledge of Allegiance, and explained that the following items were on the consent agenda and would not be discussed unless requested to do so by the Board, staff, or members of the audience: 

 

1.  GLACIER VIEW MEADOWS FILING LOT 37, AMENDED PLAT AND EASEMENT VACATION, FILE #12-S3109:  This is a request to combine Lot 37 of the Glacier View Meadows Subdivision 9th Filing with a metes and bounds parcel owned by the same person.  The metes and bounds parcel was an orphaned parcel created when the Forest Service purchased the land to the west.  The request includes an easement vacation for a 10’ utility easement along the common lot lines, which if left intact, would go through the middle of the new resulting lot.  No new parcels or lots are being created with this amendment and combines the orphaned parcel with the Glacier View Meadows Subdivision, 9th filing.

 

The following Larimer County agencies have stated that they have no objections to this proposal:

 

·  Department of Health and Environment 

·  Development Review Section of the Engineering Department

·  Addressing Section

 

Comments received from the Land Surveyor of the Larimer County Engineering Department office identify several required corrections to the plat.

 

Comments received from the Code Compliance Section indicate no known building code issues as this is vacant land. 

All the affected utility companies have agreed to the request regarding the easement vacation.

                       

The proposed amended plat to combine Lot 37 of the Glacier View Meadows Subdivision 9th Filing with a metes and bounds parcel, will not adversely affect any neighboring properties or any County agency.  The Amended Plat will not result in any additional lots. It makes sense to vacate the easement that would go through the middle of the new resulting lot if not vacated.  Staff finds that with the conditions as listed below, the request meets the requirements of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Glacier View Meadows Amended Plat, Lot 37, 9th Filing, and easement vacation, File # 12-S3109, subject to the following conditions and authorization for the chairman to sign the plat when the conditions are met and the plat is presented for signature :

 

1.   All conditions of approval shall be met and the Final Plat recorded by December 25, 2012, or this approval shall be null and void.

 

2.   The vacation of the utility easement and the reconfiguration of the lots lines shall be finalized at such time when the plat and findings and resolution of the County Commissioners are recorded. 

 

2.  HILL CONSERVATION DEVELOPMENT LOT 27 AMENDED PLAT, FILE #12-S3111:  This is a request to amend the platted building envelop for Lot 27 the Hill Conservation Development to expand it to the west towards the Taliesin Way.  This will allow a garage to be placed adjacent to the home.  This does not expand the envelope towards Cobb Lake the principal reason for delineating envelops at the Hill CD.  The expansion does not block access to any area nor does it impair visibility to the road. 

           

This amended plat to increase the area of the building envelop allows the owner to provide additional garage space on the lot.  This change does not affect the intent of the original platting or the purpose of the original building envelopes. 

 

The Development Services Team recommends Approval of The Hill Conservation Development Lot 27 Amended Plat file #12-S3111, subject to the following conditions and authorization for the chairman to sign the plat when the conditions are met and the plat is presented for signature:

 

1.   All conditions of approval shall be met and the Final Plat recorded by December 24, 2012, or this approval shall be null and void.

 

2.   Prior to the recordation of the Final Plat, the applicant shall make the technical corrections required by Dale Greer, Land Surveyor of the Larimer County Engineering Department.

 

 

3.  SOUTH NOKOMIS LAKE LOT 9 & 10 BLOCK 7 LOT CONSOLIDATION AND EASEMENT VACATION, FILE #12-S3110:  This is a request to combine two adjacent lots, Lots 9 & 10, Block 7 of South Nokomis Lake subdivision, into one lot and vacate a portion of an access easement located along the southern portion of the lots.

           

A 10’ access easement runs along the south lot line of Lots 9 & 10. Morton Road is also on the south edge of Lots 9 & 10, and most likely the 10’ access easement is supposed to contain the northern half of Morton Road. However, the actual location of northernmost edge of Morton Road is about 5-6’ south of the south lot line of Lots 9 & 10.  The northernmost 3’ of the access easement on Lots 9 & 10, does not contain any portion of the actual road and there are existing buildings which encroach into the access easement. The situation was discovered after the property went into foreclosure and the potential buyer was performing some research before the purchase.

 

To eliminate the encroachment of buildings into an access easement, the northernmost 3’ of the easement on Lots 9 & 10, for a distance of 90’ shall be vacated with this request. Seven feet of the easement will remain for Morton Road, to provide access for lots beyond the subject property.  

 

Additionally a setback variance request has also been processed and approved on this property, see file 12-BOA0894. The request was approved with the condition that the Lot Consolidation and Easement Vacation were also resolved.

 

No neighbors have voiced any objections to this proposal.  Additionally, the following Larimer County agencies have stated that they have no objections to this proposal:

·   The Larimer County Department of Health and Environment 

·   The Larimer County Addressing Section

·   The Larimer County Engineering Department, Development Services

·   The Larimer County Assessor’s office has provided the new legal description for the consolidated lot and recommends some minor changes to the easement description.

 

The proposed South Nokomis Lake Subdivision, Lots 9 & 10, Block 7 Lot Consolidation and Partial Access Easement Vacation will not adversely affect any neighboring properties or any County agency.  The Lot Consolidation will not result in any additional lots and no other services will be affected.  The staff finds that the request meets the requirements of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the South Nokomis Lake Subdivision, Lots 9 & 10, Block 7 Lot Consolidation and Partial Access Easement Vacation, File # 12-S3110 subject to the following conditions:

1.    All conditions of approval shall be met and the final resolution recorded by December 26, 2012 or this approval shall be null and void.

2.   The resultant lot is subject to any and all covenants, deed restrictions, or other conditions that apply to the original lots.

3.   The vacation of the easement and the reconfiguration of the lots lines shall be finalized at such time when the plat and findings and resolution of the County Commissioners are recorded.

Also present were:  David Muse, and Jennifer Pawleshyn, Assessor’s Office; Becky Justice-Hemmann, and Jim Birdsall, Petitioners; and Gael Cookman, Deputy Clerk.

 

1.   PETITION FOR ABATEMENT, JIM BIRDSALL, AND BECKY JUSTICE-HEMMANN, PARCEL NUMBERS 94144-05-444 AND 94144-05-436 AND 94144-05-440: Mr. Muse described the properties involved, noting that they are all in the same condominium complex located in Berthoud, and he reviewed the comparables used to arrive at the value of $176,400 for Mr. Birdsall’s property, and the combined value of $156,500 for Ms. Justice-Hemmann’s properties.   

 

Mr. Birdsall stated that the whole process has been very confusing thus far and that they have a general concern for the property values in Berthoud.  He presented his comparables; however, single owner properties, can not be compared to multiple owner properties, such as condominiums. 

 

Discussion ensued regarding the comparables used, as some were in Loveland and neither the Board, or the petitioners felt it was fair to compare properties from Loveland to those in Berthoud.  Mr. Muse agreed, but stated that there were no Condominium sales in Berthoud to compare with.

 

Much discussion ensued and Commissioner Donnelly took the following action:

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners set a new value for Parcel Number 94144-05-444, to be $159,907, for tax year 2011.

 

More discussion ensued, as Chair Gaiter and Commissioner Johnson spent some time determining a revised price per-square-foot value. 

 

Motion failed 1-2; Chair Gaiter and Commissioner Johnson dissenting.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Johnson moved that the Board of County Commissioners reduce the value for Parcel Number 94144-05-444, to $153,200, for tax year 2011. 

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners reduce the combined value for Parcel Numbers 94144-25-436 and 94144-05-440, to $136,100, for tax year 2011.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

2.   PETITION FOR ABATEMENT, FREDRICK SUHRE, PARCEL NUMBER 30291-11-002:  Ms. Pawleshyn stated that the petition was not going to appear for his hearing and she asked the Board if they wanted her to review the packet of comparables.  The Board saw no reason to discuss this matter in the absence of the petitioner.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners deny the Petition for Abatement on Parcel Number 30291-11-002, and uphold the Assessor’s determination of $56,547 on this parcel for tax year 2011.

Also present were:  Lori Cutunilli, Ken Welch, and Gerry Shaffer, Inferno Event Center; and Gael Cookman, Deputy Clerk.

 

Ms. Connors explained that the hearing was to consider a transfer application for the tavern liquor license currently known as Phaze Event Center, to Cutunilli Enterprises, dba Inferno Event Center.

 

The court reporter put Ms. Cutunilli and Mr. Welch under oath, and both answered a series of questions that Ms. Connors asked regarding the application and plans for this event center.  Ms. Cutunilli stated she recognizes the past history of this establishment and that she will not be allowing anyone under 21 years of age into the event center.  She also stated that the previous owner, Mr. Tad Bounimici, will not be involved in the business aspects of the establishment and that he is only listed on the application because she is still making payments to him for the business and transfer of ownership. 

 

Mr. Welch stated that he is well versed in checking ID’s and that he is working closely with the Sheriff’s Department, the Loveland Police Department, and the State Liquor Enforcement Division to ensure proper training for their employees, and to address and mitigate and noise complaints, etc.

 

Ms. Connors noted for the record that no one was present to voice opposition to granting the transfer of this liquor license.  

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the transfer and grant a tavern liquor license to Cutunilli Enterprises, LLC, dba Inferno Event Center, located at 5400 North Garfield Ave, Loveland, Colorado.
