Also present were: Al Kadera, Subdivision Administrator; Carol Evans, Planner II; Allen Gould, Planner I; John Pedas, Zoning Code Enforcement Officer; Doug Ryan, Environmental Health Planner; and Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney.

1. IMPERIAL ESTATES LOTS 1 & 13 AMENDED PLAT (#96-SA0863)

34-07-69 AT THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF COUNTY ROAD 40

(HORSETOOTH ROAD) AND COUNTY ROAD 19 (TAFT HILL ROAD)

2.5 ACRES; R-RESIDENTIAL ZONING

This is a request to reconfigure two existing lots. Staff findings include: 1) Imperial Estates was platted in 1963; most of the lots are developed; 2) This request is to reconfigure two vacant lots to facilitate the construction of dwellings as far from Taft Hill Road and Horsetooth Road as possible; 3) The County Health and Engineering Departments, and all utilities serving this area, reviewed the proposed Amended Plat and stated no objections. The staff recommendation is for approval of the Amended Plat of Lots 1 & 13, Imperial Estates, with the condition that the applicant comply with the requirements of the Health Department as outlined in their memo dated March 28, 1996.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board of County Commissioners adopt the staff findings and staff recommendation and approve the Imperial Estates Lots 1 & 13 Amended Plat (#96-SA0863), with the condition that the applicant must comply with the requirements of the Health Department, as outlined in the memo dated March 28, 1996.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

2. ANDERSON MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT APPEAL

(#96-EX0860): N 1/2 10-08-68 ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF COUNTY

ROAD 60, 1/2 MILE EAST OF INTERSTATE 25; 41 ACRES;

O-OPEN ZONING

This is a request to allow submittal of a MRD application to divide 40.8 acres into two lots of 15 acres with an existing house and garage and a 25-acre parcel with a mobile home. Mr. Gould reviewed the major concerns and issues and provided a summary of the events leading to today's request for an appeal. Staff findings are: 1) The Board of County Commissioners previously denied an MRD on the property located immediately west of the subject property; 2) Re-division of 35+ acre parcels by means of the MRD process in this predominantly rural, agricultural neighborhood appears to be premature at this time. There is no unified development plan in place which would coordinate the provision of services and infrastructure; 3) Applicants have the option of pursuing the conventional subdivision review process. The staff recommendation is for disapproval of the Anderson MRD Appeal.

Andrew Anderson, applicant, addressed the Board and noted that when they purchased the property in 1991 there was a tenant home on the property; later on, this tenant home partially burned and so they tore it down and put in a mobile home. Mr. Anderson stated they now they want to remove the mobile home and put in a modular home or stick-built home for their son, but in order to obtain financing, it needs to be a separate lot; he noted that all utilities are in place.

At this time the public comment portion of the hearing was closed and opened for Commissioners' comments; Chair Clarke stated that he realizes this division of property must be allowed if financing is to be obtained for the new home and in order for the family to continue to live on this 40 acres, this would be an appropriate appeal to grant. Commissioner Duvall expressed her concern about setting a precedent in this area if this is allowed; Chair Clarke noted that this property is in an area where the zoning allows 10-acre lots. Commissioner Disney expressed his concern about the division of this property into 15 & 25 acre lots and, in the interest of trying to maintain agriculture land in the county, he is opposed to this division of property. A question was raised concerning the drainage ditch; Mr. Anderson indicated he wished to speak to the Board again.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board of County Commissioners re-open the hearing to receive additional public comment.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

Mr. Anderson explained that the drainage ditch which will divide the property is a culvert across County Road 60 and is a standard irrigation ditch 15 ft. wide and 6 ft. deep.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board of County Commissioners adopt the staff findings and staff recommendation and deny the Anderson Minor Residential Development Appeal (#96-EX0860).

Motion carried 2 - 1; Chair Clarke dissenting.

3. LAMPERT MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT APPEAL

(#96-EX0846): NE 11-05-70 ON THE NORTH SIDE OF U.S. HIGHWAY

34, 1/4 MILE WEST OF THE INTERSECTION OF U. S. HIGHWAY 34

AND COUNTY ROAD 27; FA-1 FARMING; T-TOURIST ZONING

This is a request to allow submittal of a MRD for review where the subject property is located in Range 70, where direct access to the public road system is not provided for one lot, and a commercial use exists; a MRD request for this site was reviewed at CTR in 1992 (#92-EX0203) but did not proceed beyond CTR. Ms. Evans provided the background information and reviewed the appeal request, major concerns and issues, and engineering comments; she submitted pictures and a map of the site. Staff findings include: 1) The MRD process was amended in February of 1993 to limit the types of parcels that are eligible to be divided without going through the full subdivision process; 2) This property has a split zoning (T, Tourist and FA-1 Farming) and an existing restaurant with an accessory dwelling. A new accessory dwelling is under construction based on the applicant's agreement to eliminate the accessory apartment in the restaurant. Issuance of a building permit for the accessory dwelling does not constitute any review or approval of the cretin of separate lots for the buildings on this property; 3) With the type of mixed use proposed for this site and the potential for considerable impacts, staff recommends that division of this property be evaluated through the full subdivision/PUD process rather than through an exemption process; 4) The full subdivision process is available to evaluate development of parcels that are not eligible for consideration under the MRD process. A subdivision or PUD request on this property would be subject to review and comment from the Larimer County Planning Commission. The staff recommendation is for denial of the Lampert MRD appeal.

Imrich Lampert, applicant, addressed the Board and stated that this property is unique; he noted they started this process in 1992 and were given certain information and criteria required for MRD approval by staff and then seven months later during technical review, they were told that the rules had changed and it was suggested they go through the subdivision process. In addition, they were told they can't apply for a new residential dwelling, but can apply for an accessory building if it has something to do with the restaurant. With regard to being in Range 70, he has several neighbors in Range 70 which have been granted an exception to apply for MRD; he acknowledged that there is a mixed use on the property, but if the appeal is granted, nothing is going to change, only that their residence will be in the new accessory building and not in the restaurant.

At this time the public comment portion of the hearing was closed and opened for Commissioners' comments; Commissioner Disney stated that he is concerned with the long-term use of the property beyond the present ownership and may present problems in the future. Chair Clarke stated that this is a piece of land that is split-zoned and we have an opportunity here to divide this property in such a way that gets the uses more in keeping with the zoning and he thinks it is wise to do it; he noted he would support a motion that did not allow a residential use in conjunction with the restaurant. Ms. Haag stated this could be done because it was made a condition for issuance of the building permit. Chair Clarke stated that at first he thought the mixed use on this property should go through a P.U.D., but now he realizes that a mixed use exists and the impacts will not be any different from current impacts. Commercial Duvall stated that she thinks the MRD process was created to avoid commercial development and she noted that we need to stick with policy as exceptions to the rule have been allowed and it weakens the policy; she stated that because of the commercial use, the subdivision route is more fair to the citizens of Larimer County.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board of County Commissioners adopt the staff findings and staff recommendation and deny the Lampert Minor Residential Development Appeal (#96-EX0846).

Motion carried 2 - 1; Chair Clarke dissenting.

4. GRIFFITH/UNCLE BENNY'S FLEA MARKET ZONING VIOLATION

(#95-ZV0699): 13-05-69 AT NORTHWEST CORNER OF EAST 7TH

AND MADISON

This alleged violation is for operating an open air Flea Market and Building Supply Center in the B-Business Zone. Staff findings are: 1) The subject property is zoned B-Business; 2) The B-Business District does not permit flea markets or building supply yards; 3) The use does not provide the necessary off-street parking requirements; 4) The lack of off-street parking is creating a traffic safety problem; 5) The unsightly character of the site is affecting property values in the immediate neighborhood. The staff recommendation is to find that a violation exists, require compliance within 30 days, and authorize legal action if the deadline is not met.

Mr. Pedas informed the Board that this morning he received a letter from Mr. Aste, the owner of Benny's Building Supply, in which he indicated he would agree to vacate this location at 701 North Madison no later than June 1, 1996; therefore, Mr. Pedas noted the matter is somewhat resolved. However, Mr. Pedas asked the Board to include in the motion a condition that if the violation should re-occur, the matter does not have to come back before the Board and staff can proceed immediately with legal action.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board of County Commissioners find in the matter of the Griffith/Uncle Benny's Flea Market that a violation exists, require compliance by June 1, 1996, and authorize legal action if the deadline is not met; and if a violation should re-occur, staff may proceed with immediate legal action without coming back before the Board of County Commissioners.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

5. GURTLER JUNKYARD VIOLATION (#96-ZV0800): 06-06-69 LOT 2,

CONTINENTAL WEST 1ST SUBDIVISION, 4906 DEER TRAIL COURT

This alleged violation is for storing inoperable/unlicensed vehicles and an airplane in the O-Open Zoning District. Mr. Pedas submitted photos of the site, provided the background information, and reviewed the major concerns and issues; he noted that the vehicles and aircraft shown in the photos have been removed from site, however, there are some other vehicles on the property now. Mr. Pedas stated that Mr. Gurtler has a building permit for a storage building located east of his house where some of these materials have been moved; therefore, for the most part, the violation that existed has been resolved but he is concerned they are going to see some circulation of additional cars coming onto the property. Mr. Pedas also asked the Board to condition the motion to state that if a violation re-occurs, staff can proceed with legal action and not have to come before the Board again. Staff findings include: 1) The subject property is zoned O-Open District; 2) The O-Open District does not permit vehicle salvage or outside storage not accessory to a permitted use; 3) The unsightly character of the property may affect property values in the neighborhood. The staff recommendation is to find that a violation exists, require compliance within 30 days, and authorize legal action if the deadline is not met.

Eugene Tripp, property owner in Continental West Subdivision, addressed the Board and stated that this is the #2 eyesore in the County; he noted that the airplane has been moved into the shed, which is a violation of their covenants. Mr. Tripp stated that this is supposed to be a residential area but Mr. Gurtler is doing repair, remodeling and rebuilding of motorcycles and cars on the property. Gary Vogle, adjacent property owner, stated that this situation has done nothing but deteriorate and he has tried to sell his property because of this situation, but he cannot. Mr. Vogle is concerned that Mr. Gurtler will never finish the pole barn and more trash will build up; he stated they have tried to talk to him, but he has no respect for the law, his neighbors, or anyone. Discussion followed.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board of County Commissioners find in the matter of the Gurtler Junkyard Violation that a violation exists, require compliance within 30 days, and authorize legal action if the deadline is not met; further, if the violation should re-occur, this matter does not have to come back before the Board of Commissioners and staff can proceed with immediate legal action.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

The meeting adjourned at 4:30 p.m.

ABATEMENT HEARING FOR LONGS DRUG STORES

(#22)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. for an abatement hearing for Longs Drug Stores. Chair Clarke presided and Commissioner Disney was present; Commissioner Duvall was absent for the hearing as she was participating in the interviews for a new Planning Director for the County. Also present were: Patty Ring and Christine Murray, Senior Appraisers for Assessor's Office. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

Ms. Ring stated that commercial property value is determined by appropriate consideration of the cost approach, market approach, and income approach to value; she noted that originally the Assessor placed a total actual on this parcel for Longs Drug Store at $1,475,000. However, after review of the cost, market and income approaches to value, the Assessor has determined that the total actual value should be $1,230,000 ($49 per square foot) and more accurately reflects the value of the subject property in Larimer County for the 1993 and 1994 tax years; the petitioner is requesting that the actual value be $881,000.

Mr. Elgin Hundtoft of Proto-Tec Realty and representative for Longs Drug Stores, submitted a group of photos and charts for comparison of all the properties in Fort Collins that are classified as merchandising and have over 15,000 square feet of building area and less than $2,000,000 in actual valuation for the building. Mr. Hundtoft reviewed the per square foot value of those sixteen properties and noted that his estimate is that Longs Drug Store should be valued at $23 per square foot. Ms. Ring stated that Mr. Hundtoft is only looking at the valuation of the improvements and not including land value; she noted this is using the cost approach and creating the difference between Mr. Hundtoft's estimated valuation and the Assessor's valuation. Ms. Murray stated that when the three approaches are considered, the cost approach is the least reliable approach. and given the least consideration. Ms. Ring stated that Mr. Hundtoft is using improvement values coming from a cost approach and the Assessor's Office considers all three approaches to value with one final reconciled value, as required by law. Mr. Hundtoft stated that he thinks when valuation is determined, it should be structure to structure that is considered and the land should not be included in the appraisal.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board of County Commissioners accept the recommendation of the County Assessor and deny the petitioners request for an abatement and refund of taxes for a total actual value of $881,030 for Longs Drug Stores, Parcel #97131-28-006.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

The meeting recessed at 10:00 a.m.

ABATEMENT HEARING FOR CRYSTAL RAPIDS WATER PARK

(#22 @ 2300)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 10:30 a.m. for an abatement hearing for Crystal Rapids Water Park. Chair Clarke presided and Commissioner Disney was present; Commissioner Duvall was absent for the reason stated above. Also present were: Carla Woodard-Cowling, Abatement/Computer Review Senior Appraiser, and Bonnie Swartz, Senior Appraiser for Personal Property. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

Ms. Woodard-Cowling stated that the Assessor recommends denial of the Petition for Abatement or Refund of Taxes for 1994 and 1995 for the Crystal Rapids Waterpark because the Assessor's Office was forced to place a Best Information Available (BIA) value on this property because insufficient information was provided by the petitioner after several requests by the Assessor; she noted that a Notice of Value was mailed to the petitioner for both years and no protest was registered. Ms. Woodard-Cowling stated that pursuant to 39-5-118 C.R.S. "...No determination of the actual value of any taxable personal property made by the Assessor shall be rendered invalid by reason of his failure to secure or receive the personal property schedule required to be completed and returned to him prior to his determination of such value..." Pursuant to the events that have transpired and this Statute, the Assessor must necessarily recommend denial for both years and requests that the County Board concur with this recommendation.

Mr. Chris Ruff, Fee Appraiser and Property Tax Consultant and representative for Crystal Rapids Waterpark, addressed the Board and stated they are here today to appeal the valuation of the personal property taxes; he noted that Crystal Rapids Waterpark has experienced extreme financial difficulties and was placed in bankruptcy in 1994. During the time that the Assessor's Office was trying to gather the necessary information, the control of the Waterpark was divided between the petitioners and the bankruptcy and the petitioners had no control over the information being required because they did not receive it. Mr. Ruff stated that David Janssen, President Crystal Rapids Waterpark, regained control of the Park in 1995 and learned of the problem and has been working on it since that time; consequently, the value has been reduced for 1996; if the persons responsible for the Park carried through with what they were supposed to do, the value would have been lowered for 1994 and 1995. Therefore, the petitioner feels that these circumstances warrant that their petition for abatement be allowed. Discussion followed.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board accept the recommendation of the Assessor's Office and deny the Petition for Abatement or Refund of Taxes for 1994 and 1995 for the Crystal Rapids Waterpark (Schedule #8181705).

Motion carried 2 - 0.

The hearing adjourned at 10:45 a.m.

Mr. Blehm and Mr. Devore. Mr. Devore detailed the process involved with approving food service licenses. Mr. Blehm stated the Health Department must adhere to the laws as outlined in the Colorado Revised Statutes and provided a copy of the applicable statute to Mr. Becker.

Commissioner Disney stated an 'on-going' board would be necessary to address the diverse issues facing the agricultural community. The Commissioners are desirous of a board such as this to provide them with advice on agricultural issues, however to start, the priority of this task force should concentrate on PLUS. Mr. Legg stated he will meet with Ms. Kubin and Mr. Lancaster to discuss membership on this board. Discussion followed regarding potential membership.
