                                  (#230 & #231) 

    The  Board  of  County Commissioners met at 9:00 a.m. in regular session
    with  John  Barnett, Director of Planning.  Chairman Hotchkiss presided;
    Commissioners  Disney  and  Duvall  were present.  Also present were: Al
    Kadera,  Subdivision  Administrator;  Jerry White, Zoning Administrator;
    Carol  Evans,  Associate  Planner;  Russ  Legg,  Development  Processing
    Administrator;  Richael  Michels,  Planner;  Jill Bennett, Comprehensive

    Mr.  Barnett  requested  the  Board to table the Amendment to the Zoning

    and  the  Kotin  Subdivision  Final  Plat  Addendum  until June 7, 1993.

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Duvall  moved  that  the  Board table the Amendment to the
    Zoning  Resolution  regarding  the Telecommunication Facility until June
    28,  1993,  and  the Kotin Subdivision Final Plat Addendum until June 7,
    1993, as requested by Mr. Barnett.  

    Motion carried 3 - 0.   

    1.   ROBIN'S  RIDGE  MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT (#92-EX0239):  SW 1/4
         06-06-69 and SE 1/4 01-06-70; WEST OF COUNTY ROAD 38E AND SOUTH
         OF HORSETOOTH LAKE ESTATES SUBDIVISION; 47.72 ACRES; 2 LOTS;   
         O-OPEN ZONING (5-17-93).   

    This  is  a  request  to divide a 47.72 acre parcel into two (2) lots of
    11.5  and  36.22  acres  for  single family dwellings.  This request was
    previously  submitted  for  three  (3)  lots in 1991 under the same name
    (#S-63-91).   Ms.  Michels  reviewed  the  project description and major
    concerns  and issues.  Staff Findings include: 1) The access to Lot 1 of
    the  proposed  Minor  Residential is steep and narrow and inadequate for
    emergency  access; 2) Fire protection available to Lot 1 of the proposed
    Minor  Residential  Development  is  inadequate; 3) Sewer service is not
    available to the proposed Lot 1 and is possibly unavailable to Lot 2; 4)
    Development  of  the  proposed  Lot  1  could  have impacts on excellent
    wildlife  habitat;  5)  This proposed Minor Residential Development does
    not  appear  to  meet the criteria established by the Comprehensive Plan
    for  development  in  this  area;  6) Approval of this Minor Residential
    Development  would  likely  result  in  negative  impacts on the natural
    environment  and overall health and safety.  Staff Recommendation is for
    denial of this request. 
  
    David  Woronoff,  applicant,  addressed  the  Board  and  questioned the
    Board's  authority  to  rule  over  this  division of land and cited his
    interpretation  of  the State Statute regarding land division.  Chairman
    Hotchkiss  responded  that  the County has regulated land division under
    Senate  Bill  35  for  over  20 years and advised the applicant that the
    County  has  no  problem  with the construction of one residence on this
    parcel  of  land.   Vela  Campbell, Mark Walhine, and Courtney Laughlin,
    adjacent  property  owners,  voiced  their objections to the approval of
    this request, citing their concerns of increased traffic in the area, an
    existing dangerous curve near the site, road maintenance responsibility,
    population  explosion  in  the  area,  wildlife,  etc.   William  Kepner
    expressed  his  support  for  this  land  division,  noting  he  is  the
    prospective  buyer  for the 11.5 acres for a building site and stated it
    is  an  isolated piece of land and not useable for anything other than a
    building  site;  there  is  no access from Lot 1 to Lot 2.  Mr. Woronoff
    responded  he  would  participate financially in road maintenance.  Much
    discussion followed.

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Disney  moved  that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and
    Staff  Recommendation  and  deny  the  Robin's  Ridge  Minor Residential
    Development   (#92-EX0239)   because   of   the  wildfire  hazard,  road
    maintenance,  public  safety  and  the  proposal  does not meet with the
    criteria  of  the Comprehensive Land Use Plan and the plan for the area.

    Motion carried 3 - 0.   

    2.   FLYNN  EXEMPTION  CHANGE  OF  CONDITION  (#93-EX0266): NE 18-08-68;
         WEST SIDE OF COUNTY ROAD 11, 1/4 MILE SOUTH OF COLORADO HIGHWAY 1; 
         2.5 ACRES; 1 LOT; O-OPEN ZONING (5-17-93). 

    This  is  a  request  to  change  a  condition  of approval of the Flynn
    Exemption,  which  required  common  access  for  Lots  1  and  2.  This
    Exemption  was  approved  in  1979.   Ms.  Evans provided the background
    information and reviewed the Staff comments.  Staff Findings are: 1) The
    Flynn  Exemption  was approved and recorded in 1979 with a condition for
    shared  access  for  Lots 1 and 2; 2) Certain physical conditions at the
    site  make  placing  an access at the lot line between Lots 1 and 2 very
    difficult;  3)  The County Access Coordinator recommends that Lot 1 take
    access  at  the  north end of the lot and that an access easement across
    Lot 3 be provided for a driveway to Lot 2; 4) The owners of Lots 2 and 3
    are  willing  to  provide  an  access  easement  across  Lot 3 to Lot 2.

    Staff  Recommendation  is  for  Approval  of the request for a change in
    condition  regarding  access  for  lots  in the Flynn Exemption with the
    following  conditions  to  be  met prior to issuance of a Certificate of
    Occupancy  for  the  home on Lot 1: 1) The easement location description
    must  be  prepared by a licensed surveyor and included with the grant of
    easement  document  signed  by  the owners of Lot 3.  The applicant must
    work  with  the  property  owners  of  Lot  3 and with the County Access
    Corordinator  to  determine the most appropriate location for the access
    easement.   The  minimum width for this easement must be 30 feet; 2) The
    grant of easement document must include the following provisions: a) The
    description  of the easement granted by this document is attached hereto
    as  Exhibit  "A"  and  incorporated  herein  by  this reference; b) This
    easement  is  granted to provide access to Lot 2 of the Flynn Exemption.
    This  access easement replaces the condition requiring shared access for
    Lots  1  and  2  of  the Flynn Exemption, as noted on the plat of record
    (Flynn  Exemption  was  recorded  on  December 27, 1979 at Reception No.
    343830,  Book  2015,  Page  112  of  the Larimer County records); c) The
    shared portion of the access for Lots 2 and 3 is to be maintained by the
    owners  of  those  lots;  d)  The  owner  of  Lot  2  is responsible for
    constructing  a driveway to that lot when it is needed; 3) The applicant
    must  pay  recording  fees  for  the  easement  documents ($5 per page).

    Mr. Ed Flynn, applicant, stated he is in agreement with the requirements
    and conditions as outlined by Staff.

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Duvall  moved  that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and
    Staff   Recommendation   and  approve  the  Flynn  Exemption  Change  of
    Condition.  
    Motion carried 3 - 0.   

    3.  DISCUSSION ITEMS NOT ON THE AGENDA: 

    A)  Update on County Sign Task Force Committee: Task Force Members, Alan
    Cunningham,  Fred Frantz, Peter Barnes, and Vern Sunset, reported on the
    progress  of  the Committee.  Mr. Legg noted that the Committee has been
    attempting  to  bring  the  proposed  new  Larimer County Sign Code into
    agreement  with  the  sign  codes adopted by Fort Collins (which is also
    revising  their  sign  code)  and  Loveland  by incorporating their most
    restrictive codes into the Larimer County Sign Code.

    Mr.  White reviewed the County Sign Task Force recommendations in detail
    and  noted  that the Committee agrees that amortization should be 3 to 5
    years  for  most signs.  Commissioner Duvall questioned the exemption of
    governmental  signs  and  Tourist Oriented Signs not being permitted and
    requested  the  Task  Force to reconsider these two items.  Commissioner
    Disney requested a standard outline be adopted for respectful use of the
    American Flag.  

    Mr.  Legg  requested  the  Board to approve an Amendment to the original
    Mission  Statement  with  regard  to  enforcement.  The original Mission
    Statement  stated that the Task Force was to develop a sign code that is
    self-policing.  Mr. Legg stated that if we are going to adopt a new sign
    code,  we  need  to  say  to  the  people  we  are  going to enforce it.
    CONSENSUS  OF  THE BOARD was to approve the amendment, as requested, but
    to  check  with  legal counsel regarding the legality of the enforcement
    process  and  to  add  a report regarding costs, staffing, inventory and
    procedures to the final document.   

    B)  Discussion  of  The  LaPorte  Area Planning Advisory Committee Role:
    Subsequent  to  a  recent meeting of LAPAC, a concern has been raised by
    many  old-timers  in  LaPorte that they don't have representation on the
    Committee  and  LAPAC needs clarification of their function as an arm of
    the  County.  Recently, two members of LAPAC attended a meeting and took
    a  stand  and  presented  themselves  as  members  of LAPAC.  Discussion
    followed  whether  or  not  to  add  more  members to LAPAC to gain more
    credibility  and  how  the  role  of  LAPAC  is to be defined.  Chairman
    Hotchkiss  noted  that LAPAC is an ad-hoc committee formed to advise the
    Board  on  issues in LaPorte.  Ms. Haag stated that LAPAC is an advisory
    committee  formed  to gather information and report back to the Board of
    County  Commissioners.   Chairman  Hotchkiss suggested that Commissioner
    Duvall  and Jill Bennett attend the next LAPAC Meeting and discuss their
    bylaws,  which  have  not  been  approved  by  the County Commissioners,
    clarify their role, and discuss whether or not they would like to become
    a citizen's advocate group. 

    3.   Colorado  Memory  Systems  Annexation:  Subsequent  to the proposed
    purchase  by  Colorado  Memory Systems of 190 acres near Horseshoe Lake,
    which Loveland intends to annex, many citizens are requesting the County
    to  become involved to prevent industrial development.  According to the
    IGA,  once  the  City  indicates  their  intention to annex an area, the
    County  has no authority to intervene and has no opportunity for review.
    It  was  determined  that Commissioner Disney will work with Mr. Barnett
    and  issue  a  press  release, and a letter to be sent to the residents,
    clarifying  the  County's  position.    Also, consideration was given to
    scheduling a hearing to review and possibly amend the IGA with regard to
    certain land uses.  

    4.   Discussion  of  Affordable Housing Application: Commissioner Duvall
    asked the Planning Staff if there is a way to review the PUD regulations
    to simplify the application process for affordable housing projects on a
    site  specific basis.  Mr. Legg stated that it is possible to accelerate
    the application process as much as State Statutes will permit.  

    The meeting recessed at 11:45 a.m.  

              LIQUOR LICENSE HEARING FOR "END OF THE TRAIL SALOON"  
                                     (#232) 

    The  Board  of County Commissioners reconvened at 2:00 p.m. for a Liquor
    License  Hearing  for the "End of the Trail Saloon".  Chairman Hotchkiss
    presided;  Commissioners  Disney  and Duvall were present.  Also present
    were   George   Hass,   County   Attorney,   and   Bill  Gordon,  County
    Administrator.  Recording Clerk, S. Graves. 

    Following  a review of the contents of the application file by Mr. Hass,
    applicant  Edith  Marie  Moynier Stark was sworn in and questioned.  Ms.
    Stark   made   a  presentation  concerning  the  application,  including
    clarifications requested during the review of the file.  For the record,
    Mr.  Hass  noted  that  there  was no one appearing in opposition to the
    granting  of  this  license; however, one letter of protest was received
    from  Mr. Greg Larsen, 3316 Moffat Avenue, Loveland, CO.  Mr. Greg Wild,
    owner  of  the  real estate for this establishment and adjacent property
    owner,  and  Bertina Bentley Willden, Mead Town Clerk, each testified on
    behalf of Ms. Stark's character and moral judgement.

    This  matter  coming on to be heard this 17th day of May, 1993, upon the
    application  of Edith Marie Moynier Stark, dba "End of the Trail Saloon"
    for  a Colorado (6%) Tavern Liquor License, and the said Board of County
    Commissioners  having  heard  the testimony and evidence, has considered
    the  same  and  being  fully  advised  on  the  premises,  find that the
    requirements  of  the  neighborhood  and the desires of the inhabitants,
    indicate  that  the  said  license  should be granted.  Therefore, it is
    ordered  that  a Colorado (6%) Tavern Liquor License be granted to Edith
    Marie Moynier Stark, dba "End of the Trail Saloon". 

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Disney  moved that since the Board of County Commissioners
    has  considered  the  evidence and testimony of the application of Edith
    Marie  Moynier Stark, dba "End of the Trail Saloon", and determined that
    all  the  requirements  have  been  met  for a Colorado 6% Tavern Liquor
    License  at  the  location of 1720 Glade Road, Loveland, CO. 80537-0582,
    that this license be granted.   

    Motion carried 2 - 1; Commissioner Duvall dissenting.   

    The meeting adjourned at 2:30 p.m.  

    TUESDAY, MAY 18, 1993   

                          PUBLIC WORKS STANDING MEETING 
                                     (#233) 

    The  Board  of  County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in regular session
    with  Rex Smith, Director of Public Works.  Chairman Hotchkiss presided;
    Commissioners  Disney  and  Duvall  were  present.   Also  present were:
    Attorney,  Ralph  Harden;  Ross  Shaw,  Manager  Design and Construction
    Engineering;  Bill  Heiden  and  Dale  Miller,  Director  and  Assistant
    Director  of  Road  and  Bridge  Department;  and  Bill  Gordon,  County
    Administrator.  Recording Clerk, S. Graves. 

    1.   STRANG GRAVEL PIT-WATER AUGMENTATION AGREEMENT:  After two years of
    reviewing  different  proposals  from  various  irrigation companies for
    augmentation  of evaporative loss in gravel pits, the Board was apprised
    of  the  decision to enter into an agreement with the Platte River Power
    Authority  which  will  meet the needs for pit-water augmentation and at
    the   lowest  cost  ($75,000).   Final  agreement  will  be  reached  in
    approximately  30  days,  at which time Road & Bridge will return to the
    Board for final approval.  It was noted this augmentation is required by
    State and Federal regulations.  

    2.   1992  ROAD  AND  BRIDGE PROJECT SLIDES: Mr. Smith showed before and
    after slides of the 1992 Road and Bridge Completed Projects.

    3.   WEIGHT  RESTRICTIONS ON COUNTY ROAD 9 AND COUNTY ROAD 9E: Mr. Smith
    requested  authorization from the Board to place a weight restriction on
    CR9  and 9E for approximately six weeks.  This road is near the Kauffman
    Gravel  Pit  and, due to the large trucks on the road, temporary repairs
    don't  last.   When summer arrives, the road will be repaired correctly.
    CONSENSUS  OF  THE BOARD was to authorize Mr. Heiden to set a reasonable
    weight limit for CR 9 and 9E, unless Kaufffan & Son repair the road, and
    to  draft a generic resolution for setting temporary weight restrictions
    on roads in the future and return to the Board for approval.
    4.    DRY   GULCH  ROAD-DISCUSSION:   Discussion  ensued  regarding  the
    deplorable  existing  road  conditions  going  into  the Honda Facility.
    Disregarding  Public Works' suggestions, road repairs were undertaken by
    Honda  in  the  winter  and  done quickly and incorrectly.   Now, due to
    budget  restraints,  Honda  is  proposing to do a minimal patch and chip
    seal;   Public   Works   is  recommending  an  asphalt  overlay.   After
    discussion,  Chairman  Hotchkiss stated that County policy requires that
    the  road  is  to  be  restored to its original condition.  Another item
    briefly  discussed  was  to determine who is financially responsible for
    provision of bicycle lanes. 

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner  Disney moved that the Board go into Executive Session with
    George Hass, County Attorney, to discuss potential litigation.  

    Motion carried 3 - 0.   

    The meeting adjourned at 11:30 a.m.; no action taken.   

    WEDNESDAY, MAY 19, 1993 

                             ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS 
                                     (#234) 

    The  Board of County Commissioners met in administrative session at 9:30
    a.m.   with  Bill  Gordon,  County  Administrator.   Chairman  Hotchkiss
    presided;  Commissioner  Duvall  was present and Commissioner Disney was
    attending a meeting in Greeley.  Recording Clerk, D. Lord.  

    WORKSESSION:

    1.   CONTRACT  FOR  A  PROFESSIONAL  CONSULTANT  TO  PREPARE  A RESOURCE
    MANAGEMENT  PLAN:   Chairman Hotchkiss said that the Board had discussed
    this  item in Executive Session with the County Attorney on May 18, 1993
    and was ready to take action.   

    MOTION  

    Commissioner  Duvall  moved that the Board approve granting the contract
    to  prepare  a  Resource  Management  Plan  for the Larimer County Parks
    Department and the Bureau of Reclamation to EDAW.   

    The  motion  carried  2 - 0.  Chairman Hotchkiss noted that Commissioner
    Disney  wished  to  have  his agreement with this decision noted for the
    record. 

    2.   Mr. Gordon reported that Jim Stokes, Director of IMS, had requested
    the  Board  to  promulgate  a  policy  regarding the distribution of the
    in-house  County phone book to the public, and to establish a system for
    charging  fees  for  this  type of publication.  Chairman Hotchkiss said
    that  no  County policy is necessary since the County operates under the
    Freedom  of  Information  Act  and  all County publications must be made
    available  to  the  public.   He  suggested that a reasonable fee may be
    charged  for  copies  of information, and that departments should assure
    that   the   charges  are  restricted  to  the  materials  and  cost  of
    duplication.

    3.   A  letter  was  received from W. Bruce Hansford informing the Board
    that  he  had  replaced  Kenneth  L.  Headrick  as the Northern Division
    Manager  of  Public  Service  Company.   He stated that he would like to
    replace  Mr.  Headrick  as  a  member  of  the OEDP Committee.  Chairman
    Hotchkiss said that since the County was especially interested in having
    Public Service represented on the OEDP, he supported having Mr. Hansford
    as  a  member.   By consensus, Mr. Hansford was appointed to replace Mr.
    Headrick as a member of the OEDP.   

    4.   A  letter  was  received  from Ms. B.J. Dean, Executive Director of
    Island  Grove  Regional  Treatment Center requesting a letter of support
    for  their  application  for  a CDBG grant for construction of a new and
    expanded  facility.   By consensus, the Board agreed to send a letter of
    support for the grant.  

    5.   The  Board  received  a  memorandum from Rena Mackrill, Director of
    Human  Development,  requesting  that  Ruth  Campos,  the  HUD Section 8
    Certificates  program  coordinator,  be moved from temporary to regular,
    part-time  status,  effective  June  1,  1993.   The  Board,  decided by
    consensus that Ruth Campos be moved from temporary to regular, part-time
    employment effective June 1, 1993.  

    6.   The Board selected Monday, June 21, 1993 as the date for the County
    Seat-for-a-Day  meeting in Red Feather Lakes.  The meeting will begin at
    7:00 p.m. at the Community Center.  

    7.   Dr.  Jorge  Figueroa,  member  of the Board of Directors for Poudre
    Valley  Hospital,  wrote  to  extend  an  invitation  to  the  Board  to
    participate  in  a  leadership  roundtable,  including  a  proposal  for
    quarterly  meetings  of the elected officials.  Poudre Valley Hospital's
    District  Board  of Directors has agreed to host the first meeting.  The
    Board agreed to accept the invitation.  

    8.   Ross Shaw, Design and Construction Engineering Manager, submitted a
    request  for  a  waiver  by  the  Board  for  Frank  Kurtyka  to  accrue
    compensatory  time  beyond  the  60  hour  limit  for  compensatory time
    accrual.   He  explained that the workload is such that Mr. Kurtyka will
    not  be  able  to  take off the time within the mandated period, and the
    department does not have funding to pay him for the overtime.   

    MOTION  

    Commissioner  Duvall  moved  that  the  Board grant a one-time waiver to
    allow   Mr.   Kurtyka  to  accumulate  comp-time  60  hour  maximum  for
    compensatory time accrual.  

    The motion carried 2 - 0.   

    9.   Steven  Burkett, Fort Collins City Manager, responded affirmatively
    to the Board's invitation for a joint meeting, and said that most of the
    Council  members would be able to attend the June 16, 1993 meeting.  The
    meeting will be held at the courthouse. 

    10.   DOCUMENT  REVIEW:   The  following documents, of a routine nature,
    were considered by the Board:

    County   Administrator   and  Joe  Lopez,  from  the  Colorado  Judicial
    Administration.  Recording Clerk, D. Lord.  

    Chairman  Hotchkiss reviewed the objectives for the meeting.  Mr. Lawler
    explained  that  the  two  principal  issues  to  discuss  were the Fort
    Collins'  lease  of  space in the courthouse for Municipal Court and the
    need  for  more  space for the 8th Judicial Court.  He reported that the
    current  lease with the City of Fort Collins expires on January 1, 1995,
    and  the  City  needs  to know if the County plans to renew the lease by
    June  21st  to  allow  them time to make alternate plans for housing the
    Municipal Court.

    General  discussion  followed regarding the needs of the District Court,
    and  the  need to plan for expanded space for both County Administrative
    Services  and the Courts.  Chairman Hotchkiss agreed to have the Board's
    decision  to  the  City  of  Fort  Collins by June 21, 1993.  He further
    agreed  that the Board would study the available space in the courthouse
    to attempt to expand the space utilized by the Court to meet their needs
    on an interim basis.

    The meeting was adjourned at 3:00 p.m.
