LAND USE HEARING

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 3:00 p.m. with Matt Lafferty, Principal Planner. Chair Pro Tem Johnson presided and Commissioner Donnelly was present. Also present were:  Doug Ryan, Environmental Health Department; Clint Jones, Engineering Department; Rob Helmick and Brenda Gimeson, Planning Department; William Ressue, County Attorney's Office; and Melissa Lohry, Deputy Clerk.

 

Chair Pro Tem Johnson opened the hearing with the Pledge of Allegiance and noted 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:

 

Mr. Helmick requested that item #1, Fox Acres 2nd and 3rd, Lot 26, Common Properties Amended Plat and Fee Waiver, file #12-S3140, be removed from the consent agenda as staff does not support the fee waiver portion of the application.

 

The Board noted the request and removed the item from the consent agenda.

 

2.         MEHAFFEY MINOR LAND DIVISION, FILE #12-S3136:   This is a request for approval of a Minor Land Division to divide 45.6-acres into a 3-acre lot and 42-acre lot to allow the Loveland Fire Rescue Authority to acquire the 3-acre lot for the construction of a new firehouse. The residential lot is proposed to be 40+ acres and currently contains a residence.  The applicants have proposed that the 3-acre parcel will be annexed into the City of Loveland for the development of a fire station.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Mehaffey Minor Land Division, file #12-S3136, subject to the following conditions and authorization for the chair 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 June 10, 2013, or this approval shall be null and void.

 

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

 

3.    Easement and right-of-way dedications noted in the comments from the Engineering Department and the City of Loveland must be shown on the plat.

 

4.    No development of a fire station or any other use on Lot 2 of this Minor Land Division shall occur without annexation to the City of Loveland.

 

3.         JOHNSON'S SUBDIVISION AMENDED PLAT, FILE #12-S3139:   This is a request for approval to amend the plat of Johnson’s Subdivision to reconfigure the platted lot lines to match existing fence lines.

 

The subject property is located near the Town of Berthoud, on County Road 8 (Highway 56), just west of the Larimer/Weld County line, within the Johnson’s Subdivision, which was originally recorded in the early 1900’s. This property is currently zoned FA-1 Farming and that will remain the same. Lot line changes have occurred in this subdivision over the years and what is in the field is not indicative of what was originally platted. The lots as proposed to be amended will accommodate what is actually on the ground and better match with existing fence lines.  All owners have agreed to the changes as proposed and signed the application form as submitted. There are no proposed changes in the existing access or drainage. 

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Amended Plat of Johnson’s Subdivision, file #12-S3139, to reconfigure the lots subject to the following conditions and authorization for the chair 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 June 17, 2013, 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 County staff and by Dale Greer, Land Surveyor of the Larimer County Engineering Department.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the consent agenda as published above.

 

Motion carried 2-0.

 

12172012R001           FINDINGS AND RESOLUTION APPROVING THE MEHAFFEY MINOR LAND DIVISION

 

1.         FOX ACRES 2ND AND 3RD LOT 26, COMMON PROPERTIES AMENDED PLAT AND FEE WAIVER, FILE #12-S3140:  This is a request to amend the plat of Fox Acres 2nd and 3rd Filing, to reconfigure Lot 26, so that all improvements are located within the lot lines. No acreage in Lot 26 will change. The applicant has also requested a fee waiver as the request was originally submitted for review in 2008 and approved February 2, 2009, at which time final action was never taken, allowing the approval to expire. The expiration was memorialized with action of the Board of County Commissioners on May 20, 2010. 

 

As a part of this request, the applicant is requesting a waiver of fees, as nothing was changed from the original approval. However, staff would like to note that much of the review has been repeated, including the costs of referral, notice, and production. 

 

The purpose of the proposed amended plat is to revise the shape of Lot 26 and redefine the Common Properties of Fox Acres. Lot 26 will contain the same acreage and the acreage of the common properties will remain unchanged.

 

The Fox Acres Country Club was first approved in 1979 as a Master Planned community. There are 4 filings along with a variety of lot sizes and configurations.  The project was first approved with 225 lots on 459-acres, along with the golf course and support facilities. Fox Acres also has its own water and sewer associations on-site to provide these services to the individual lots. Fox Acres is located on the northeast side of the Red Feather Lakes Subdivision, off Prairie Divide Road.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Amended Plat of Fox Acres 2nd and 3rd Filing, Lot 26 and Common Properties, file #12-S3140, subject to the following conditions and authorization for the chair to sign the plat when the conditions are met and the plat is presented for signature:

 

1.   The Final Plat shall be recorded by June 13, 2013, or this approval shall be null and void.

 

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

 

Staff does not support the requested Fee Waiver.

 

Commissioner Donnelly asked Mr. Helmick to estimate the amount of work which did not have to be re-completed due to the current application having been previously approved. Mr. Helmick stated that roughly 30% of the work was completed during the original approval.

 

Chair Pro Tem Johnson opened the hearing to the applicant who did not wish to speak.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Fox Acres 2nd and 3rd, Lot 26, Common Properties, Amended Plat and Fee Waiver, file #12-S3140, subject to the conditions above. Furthermore, Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve a 30% reduction of fees, resulting in a fee of $400.

 

Motion carried 2-0.

 

There being no further business, the Board adjourned at 3:15 p.m.

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:00 a.m. with Linda Hoffmann, County Manager. Chair Pro Tem Johnson presided and Commissioner Donnelly was present.

1.    PUBLIC COMMENT:  Rick Mattingly, Barb Scholdt, Bryan Morgan, and James Fariello addressed the Board regarding gold panning in Larimer County, as members and/or associated with the Rocky Mountain Prospectors and Treasure Hunters association.  All were supportive of gold panning, and stated that although very little gold is ever found, it provides for recreation and outdoor family fun.  They asked the Board to allow this practice to continue.

 

Eric Sutherland again questioned spending by the City of Fort Collins on the Rocky Mountain Innosphere project, calling it corruption and a disservice to the citizens of this community.

 

Mel Hilgenberg renewed his request for information and the verification checklist for mandatory social security benefits, and questioned the decision on his benefits status.

5.    OBTAIN BUILDING OUTLINES BASED UPON RECENTLY UPDATED AERIALS:  Mr. Miller explained that they have the opportunity to increase the accuracy of property data and verify existing structures with a building outline layer provided by Pictomerty.  He requested the ability to carry forward $45,000 for their 2012 budget to fund the building outline project.  Some discussion ensued and the Board agreed this project adds value to the Assessor’s processes, while providing updated information for citizens.     

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve carrying forward $45,000 from the Assessor’s 2012 budget to their 2013 budget to fund the building outline project.

 

Motion carried 2-0.

 

6.  UPDATE ON THE USA PRO CYCLING CHALLENGE EVENTS & APPOINT A LARIMER COUNTY REPRESENTATIVE TO THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE:  Mr. Herrfeldt displayed a PowerPoint presentation outlining the work that has been done by the executive committee in preparation to formally bid on a stage for the 2013 USA Pro Cycling Challenge, Colorado.  He noted that this is the first time a “regional” bid has been put together by Larimer County, Fort Collins, Windsor, Loveland, and Estes Park.  Mr. Herrfeldt explained how the committee and municipalities are being represented, and how Mr. Hass is involved, as legal council, in developing an Intergovernmental Agreement for the entities to partner in.  Finally, Mr. Herrfeldt explained the need to appoint a Larimer County representative and recommended Gael Cookman for the position, noting that he has worked with Ms. Cookman on special events, that she’s an avid cyclist in the community, and she is interested in taking an active role in this event.  The Board agreed that it would be a great event to host in Northern Colorado and endorsed Mr. Herrfeldt’s recommendation.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the appointment of Gael Cookman as the Larimer County Representative to the Executive Committee. 

 

Motion carried 2-0.

 

7.  2013 REGULATION FOR PUBLIC LANDS MANAGED BY NATURAL RESOURCES:   Mr. Buffington noted that changes to the regulation are encompassed in three areas:  1) Equestrian camping at Hermit Park; 2)  Food storage in the campgrounds; and 3) Gold panning – prohibiting mineral extraction from seven areas in the parks and open lands. 

 

Mr. Buffington stated that the regulation already restricts the removal of rocks, trees, soil, and he stated that he does not believe the county owns the mineral rights on these properties; therefore, they cannot allow mineral extraction either.  Mr. Hass concurred, stating that the county has a general overall policy that does not allow folks to remove anything from the parks and open lands. 

 

Some discussion ensued regarding the remaining changes, and the Board asked Mr. Hass and Mr. Buffington to take a look at the mineral rights and gold panning and bring it back to the Board for further consideration.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the recommended 2013 regulations for public lands managed by the Department of Natural Resources, with the exception of section J that will be brought back for consideration at a later date.

 

Motion carried 2-0.

 

12182012R002           RESOLUTION REGULATIONS RELATING TO LARIMER COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES AREAS AND FACILITIES

 

8.  IMPACT OF “BUY AMERICA” CLAUSE ON REGIONAL VAN GO PROGRAM:   Ms. Mallette explained that their program is funded through the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and they require users to meet the “Buy America” requirements whenever possible, which, among other things, requires that at least 60% of the vehicle must be made and assembled in the United States.  Until recently, there has not been a supplier that could meet the requirements of the Buy America program; however, there is now a new supplier meets the requirements but the vehicle is unacceptable as it weighs 5000 pounds, only gets 13 miles per gallon, only seats four people, and costs twice as much as the 7-passenger vans currently being used.   Ms. Mallette stated that ultimately either the Buy America clause will need to be changed, or the Van Go program will no longer be able to accept federal funding.  The Board thanked Ms. Mallette for this update.

 

9.  WORKSESSION:  Ms. Hoffmann informed the Board that they have certificates of appreciation for the Cities of Fort Collins and Greeley for their participation and work on the watershed protection program; she noted that this was a very important project to implement prior to winter setting in.  She stated that she and Commissioner Johnson would present the certificate at the City of Fort Collins council meeting this evening, and Commissioner Donnelly agreed to attend the Greeley council meeting on Jan 15, 2103.

 

Ms. Hoffmann also updated the Board on the proposed Urban Renewal Authority (URA) with Loveland regarding their expansion and intention to extend the Tax Increment Financing (TIF), and that staff has been working on getting the information needed to reflect the actual proposal. 

 

10.  COMMISSIONER ACTIVTY REPORTS:  The Board shared their activities at events during the past week.

 

12.   LEGAL MATTERS:   There were no legal matters to discuss.

 

The meeting adjourned at 10:25 a.m., with no further action taken.
