Recording Clerk, S. Graves. Mr. Barnett stated that the applicant for the Fort Collins Truss Special Review has requested this matter be tabled until June 7, 1993. M O T I O N Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board table the Fort Collins Truss Special Review (#92-ZR0196) until June 7, 1993, as requested by the applicant. Motion carried 3 - 0. 1. VALLEY VIEW ESTATE PRELIMINARY PLAT (#92-SU0208): SW 1/4 36-05-69; EAST OF US HIGHWAY 287, 1/4 MILE NORTH OF STATE HIGHWAY 60; 22.4 ACRES; 25 LOTS; FA-FARMING ZONING (5-3-93) This is a request to divide 22.4 acres into 25 lots of .44 acres to 1.19 acres for single family dwellings. Ms. Bennett described the project, the major concerns and issues, and noted that the main concern regarding Highway (287) has been resolved thru new design and shifting the access road to the south. Ms. Bennett stated that a note will be placed on the Final Plat recommending noise-reducting construction techniques. Ms. Bennett noted that this proposal requires two variances from the County Subdivision Standards regarding the length of the temporary cul-de-sac and submitting the development as a subdivision rather than a planned unit development. Staff Findings include: 1) The proposed subdivision is consistent with the County Comprehensive Plan, including the Loveland Master Plan, the Subdivision Resolution, and the existing zoning of the property (with the adjustment to the 4 lots stated above) and is compatible with existing and planned uses in the area; 2) Approval of the proposed Valley View Estates, with the following conditions, will not result in any significant negative impact on surrounding properties, utility service, transportation facilities, or the natural environment. Much discussion followed concerning the lack of a long-range Master Plan, lack of coordination between proposed developments, and the creation of future traffic problems within this development. The conditions were amended as follows: The Planning Commission/Staff Recommendation is for Approval of the Variance for exceeding the maximum allowed cul-de-sac with the condition that final plans for an emergency secondary access, as shown on the Preliminary Plat, be approved by the Loveland Fire Prevention Bureau and the Larimer County Engineer; and Approval of the Variance for not submitting the development as a Planned Unit Development, with the condition that landscaping is provided consistent with County requirements for a Planned Unit Development in the landscape buffer shown on the Preliminary Plat; and Approval of the Preliminary Plat for Valley View Estates for 25 single family lots as shown on the Preliminary Plat, with the following amended conditions: 1) All concerns of the County Engineer, the County Drainage Administrator, and the Loveland Fire Prevention Bureau shall be addressed by construction plans and collateral before the Final Plat is approved; 2) Final Plat documents shall include an overlot grading plan and a reseeding plan, calculations for sizing of the detention pond, and a final landscaping plan. Collateral shall include installation of the landscaping materials; 3) Internal subdivision roads shall meet urban street standards; 4) Covenants shall address concerns of the Consolidated Home Supply Ditch and Reservoir Company; 5) School Fees of $8 per lot or $200 shall be collected with the Final Plat; 6) An annexation agreement shall be signed as required by the Loveland Intergovernmental Agreement; 7) The following notes shall be added to the Final Plat; A) Engineered foundation plans shall be required for all construction on this site; B) The Larimer County Park Fee shall be collected when a building permit is issued for a single family dwelling on each lot; C) The results of a radon test shall be submitted to the Planning Department before a Certificate of Occupancy is issued for any individual structure on the site; D) All access shall be limited to internal subdivision road; access to Lots 2 - 7 shall be limited to Valley View Court; E) Increased noise insulation of walls, triple-glazed windows, and orientation of living spaces away from US Highway 287 are recommended, as noise reduction measures; F) Valley View Court will ecome a through street as adjacent development occurs; 8) The Final Plat shall address concerns of the Colorado Department of Transportation regarding relocation of the access onto US 287, acceleration/deceleration lanes, an additional 20' reservation along the frontage of US 287 for future road ROW, and a 15' dedication with the Final Plat. The Final Plat shall show the new setback line moved 15' to the east; 9) A note shall be placed on the Final Plat stating that Valley View Lane is a thru street. M O T I O N Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board deny the Valley View Estate Preliminary Plat because the UGA density has not been met and lack of coordination in meeting UGA requirements. Motion failed 1 - 2; Chairman Hotchkiss and Commissioner Disney dissenting. M O T I O N Commissioner Disney moved that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and the Planning Commission/Staff Recommendation with Amended Conditions and approve the Valley View Estate Preliminary Plat (#92-SU0208), and the two Variances as requested. Motion carried 2 - 1; Commissioner Duvall dissenting. 2. AMENDMENT TO THE FENDER REZONING SITE PLAT (#93-ZR0218): NW 1/4 36-06-69; 5016 NORTH GARFIELD, LOVELAND; .34 ACRES; 1 LOT; C-COMMERCIAL ZONING (5-3-93) This is a request for Special Review and Change to Site Specific Development Plan approval to include a 40' x 60' storage shed and an expansion of the use of the site. Mr. White reviewed the history, project description, and noted that the proposed addition does not appear to create any significant problems. Staff findings are: 1) The proposed use is consistent with the County Land Use Plan, County Zoning Resolution, and Intergovernmental Agreements with Loveland; 2) The proposed use is compatible with other commercial uses to the north, south, and west. The use would have little or no impact on the residential uses to the east; 3) The request is consistent with the promotion of the public health, safety, convenience, order, and prosperity; no increased demand for public services will result from the proposal. In response to the applicant's question regarding process to follow if the type of business at this location would change, Mr. White stated that a change in use would be allowable unless it is totally different; which would require coming back to the Board through the review process. The Planning Commission/Staff Recommendation is for Approval of the Amendment to the Fender Rezoning Development Plan, with the following amended conditions: 1) A signed Annexation Agreement shall be submitted within 30 days of final approval in accordance with the requirements of the Intergovernmental Agreements with Loveland; 2) A Deed of Dedication for an additional 10 feet of right-of-way shall be submitted within 30 days of final approval; 3) No more than one business shall operate on this property; however, the storage building may be used as an accessory storage area for the applicant's canvas repair business, which exists on the adjacent parcel, as long as the two parcels are in common ownership; 4) No machinery or equipment shall be operated in the storage building that would be audible to residents in the adjacent homes; 5) The new building shall be of an earthtone color with no reflective exterior surfaces; 6) No additional signage shall be placed on the property; 7) The access easement along the east sign of the parcel shall remain unobstructed; 8) Except as otherwise modified by the above conditions, all development and use of the property shall be consistent with the development plan previously approved by the Board of County Commissioners on August 25, 1986, and with Zoning File Exhibit A (Application for Zoning Action dated February 14, 1993, with attached information); 9) Compliance with requirements of the Loveland Fire Protection Bureau, at the time of building permit application; 10) Building must be sited as shown on the plan. Any other building location must be approved by the Planning Commission and the Board. M O T I O N Commissioner Disney moved to adopt the Staff Findings and Planning Commission/Staff Recommendation with Amended Conditions and approve the Amendment to the Fender Rezoning Site Plan. Motion carried 3 - 0. 3. POPE ALLEGED JUNK YARD VIOLATION (USED CARS, CAR PARTS, COLLECTORS VEHICLES, ETC.); (#93-ZV0216): 1021 NORTH COUNTY ROAD 23H, WEST SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD 23H, ONE MILE SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 34, WEST OF LOVELAND (5-3-93). This alleged violation is for storing inoperable/unlicensed vehicles (14) and auto parts in such a manner as to create a junk yard. Mr. Pedas reviewed the major issues and concerns, and submitted photos of the site taken on various dates. Staff Findings include: 1) The subject property is Zoned FA-1 Farming; 2) The FA-1 Farming Zoning District does not permit outdoor storage of vehicles, sales, salvage or repair; 3) Autos classified as collectors vehicles must be effectively screened if they are stored outside; 4) Continued use of the property is inconsistent with the Zoning Regulations and State Statutes, which may affect property values in the neighborhood. Staff Recommendation is to find that a violation exists, require compliance within 30 days, and authorize legal action if the compliance deadline is not met. Eric Pope, property owner, requested that the Board allow 45 to 60 days to come into compliance as he has a contract to begin construction on June 1, 1993 on a 27' x 60' building in which he will be able to store nine vehicles. Robert Williams, adjacent property owner and speaking on behalf of other property owners in the area, read a document into the record protesting the undesirable conditions existing on this site. Discussion followed. M O T I O N Commissioner Disney moved that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and Staff Recommendation and find that a violation exists, require compliance within 60 days, and authorize legal action if the compliance deadline is not met. Motion carried 3 - 0. 4. RHEUBOTTOM ALLEGED JUNKYARD VIOLATION (#88-ZV9999): 630 WEST COUNTY ROAD 16 (5-3-93). This alleged violation is for storing inoperable/unlicensed vehicles, vehicle salvage in the FA-Farming Zoning District. Mr. Pedas reviewed the major issues and concerns. Staff Findings are: 1) The subject property is zoned FA-Farming; 2) The FA-Farming Zoning District does not permit junk yards, auto repair or salvage operations; 3) Adequate time extensions have been given to the property owner in consideration of personal matters in order to remove junk vehicles; 4) Continued use of the property as a junk yard will severely affect property values in the neighborhood; 5) The storage of junk vehicles provides suitable harborage for rodents and other pests; 6) The outside storage of vehicles may create a fire hazard and contribute to the growth and spread of noxious weeds. The property owner did not appear. Staff Recommendation is to find that a violation exists, require compliance within 30 days, and authorize legal action if the deadline is not met. M O T I O N Commissioner Disney moved that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and Staff Recommendation and find that a violation exists, require compliance within 30 days, and authorize legal action if the deadline is not met. Motion carried 3 - 0. 5. WORKSESSION TO DISCUSS ITEMS NOT ON THE AGENDA: A. Final Plat Submission: Mr. Barnett stated that current regulations require all items for the subdivision process to be submitted at the same time. Over the years a process of two steps has evolved, which results in confusion and difficulty in making sure all conditions have been met. Mr. Barnett suggested returning to the original process as it is outlined in the regulations and requested Board approval. CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to agree to this request. B. Enforcement of Zoning Regulations: Mr. Pedas described the types of zoning violations, how complaints are handled, and noted that the enforcement process and procedures were last reviewed in 1978. Mr. Pedas stated that approximately 80% of the violations are resolved before coming to the Board. Mr. Legg noted that, except for building code violations, all code violations result from a complaint. Mr. Legg advised the Board that, in an attempt to speed up the enforcement process, Staff is considering revising the code enforcement procedure whereby the Board would authorize Staff to issue a citation when a violation is seen and wondered if the Board thought this would be appropriate. 3. Discussion Items: Discussion followed concerning the progress being made regarding scheduling certain land-use meetings at 4:30 p.m. or at night, the possibility of conducting a survey among the citizens to determine when they would like the meetings, etc. Commissioner Duvall requested guidance from the Board and Counsel on procedures to follow for changing direction of the Board and yet not changing the rules in the middle of the game and staying within the limits of the law. Staff noted it takes time to change policy and cited several examples of how they are attempting to make changes. The meeting recessed at 11:45 a.m. BUDGET DISCUSSION (#215) The County Board of Commissioners reconvened in regular session at 2:|0 p.m. with Bob Keister, Budget Manager. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Duvall and Disney were present. Also present were Bill Gordon, County Administrator; Robert Grewell, Division Director, Financial Administration Division; Rex Smith, Director of Public Works ; and, Ralph Jacobs, Personnel Director. Recording Clerk, D. Lord. Bob Keister presented an overview of the county's budget process with target completion dates for each step of the process. He stated that his primary recommendation for a change in the process would be to ask county departments to submit the first projections for revenues in May. Mr. Keister explained the need for a decision to be made to give the department heads direction in their budget development process. The Board discussed the various options for personnel, Capital Expenditure Fund and Designated Working Capital Fund, and the need to review each decision based on the impact of Amendment One on both revenue and expenditures. The Board agreed on the following strategies for developing the FY 94 budget: o Instructions should be given to department heads for the FY 94 budget to be developed at the same basic level approved for FY 93. o The Personnel Director was instructed to contact the nine front range counties and obtain personnel salary data to use as a cost comparison with Larimer County employees having the same or similar responsibilities, by June 1, 1993 o The Budget Manager was instructed to contact department heads and request a preliminary projection of revenues in May. o The Board will begin scheduling Budget Planning Meetings with the Budget Manager on open Thursdays to discuss budget issues.

Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were: Frank Lancaster, Natural Resources Director; Bill Heiden, Director of Road & Bridge Department; and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves. 1. Mr. Lancaster provided an overview of the Natural Resources Department and reviewed the history, goals, departmental values, management commitments, and Mission Statement. Mr. Lancaster noted that the Natural Resources Department is responsible for a variety of environmental and resource management functions within the County. The main areas of responsibility are the Larimer County Pest Control District, Solid Waste Management Enterprise Fund, and Forestry and Pest Control. Mr. Lancaster discussed with the Board the "Free Days" offered at the Landfill, noting that during the last "Free Day" they had over 2600 customers on one day, at a cost of $40,000 for the County. By contrast, on a normal day they have 400 customers. Mr. Lancaster did note, however, that 3,400 pounds of food and $806 in cash was collected for the Distribution Center on that day. Because of the growth which has occurred in the County, the Board agreed there is a need to change the Intergovernmental Agreement with Fort Collins and Loveland regarding the offering of "Free Days" at the Landfill each year. Discussion ensued regarding the goal of the Larimer County Pest Control District; which is to limit the spread of noxious weeds, particularly leafy spurge and Canada thistle within Larimer County. 2. Mr. Heiden requested approval to use $290,000 of the unappropriated Road and Bridge Fund Balance to fund Project #194 for County Road 15 improvements, to cover the increase in cost for emulsion for chipseal, and to pay increased facility rent. Mr. Heiden noted that this transaction will leave $132,000 remaining in the Fund Balance. M O T I O N Commissioner Disney moved that the Board approve the request to use unappropriated Road and Bridge Fund Balance in the amount of $290,000 to fund Project #194. Motion carried 3 - 0.

She reported that Affordable Housing, HUD Certificates/Voucher Program, REHAB Project, and redesignation of the Advisory Board to a separate, non-county agency were a few of their projects. Chairman Hotchkiss explained that the county had no problem with looking at options and investigating whether to redesignate the Advisory Board as a entity separate from county government, but that the Advisory Board should prepare plans, action steps and cost figures prior to any final discussion of the move. Commissioner Duvall volunteered to act as liaison to the Advisory Board. The Board and the Housing Advisory Board agreed to meet together to discuss any mutual items of interest on a more regular basis. The meeting was adjourned at 11:40 a.m. WEDNESDAY, MAY 5, 1993 ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS (#218) The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in administrative session with Bill Gordon, County Administrator.

Mr. Miller explained that the Meggison bid violated the requirements of the specification, had vulcanized material, and left two questions blank that was vital to the decision to award the bid, especially in the areas of use of materials and quality assurance for the material to be provided.
