Motion carried 3 - 0.

  1. VISTA VIEW ESTATES PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT RELEASE OF WARRANTY COLLATERAL FOR LANDSCAPING: 25-06-69; NORTH OF 57TH STREET IN THE LOVELAND GROWTH MANAGEMENT AREA.

This is a request to release the landscaping warranty collateral for Vista View Estates Planned Unit Development. Staff recommendation is for approval of the release of landscaping warranty collateral once documentation has been received by the Planning Department that the sprinkler main on Lot 57 has been removed or an easement has been obtained. Mr. Legg stated that the Homeowners Association (HOA) for Vista View Estates has three concerns: 1. The fence along 57th street needs to be moved; 2. The sprinkler main on lot 57 needs to be moved; and 3. Some trees did not seem to have lived through the winter and needed replacement either by Mills Brothers Landscaping or the developer. Mr. Legg further stated that the fence was not part of the original warranty requirement and is therefore not related to this release request; 2. Mr. Burns is working with the current owner of lot 57 to reach an agreement regarding the sprinkler main; and 3. Staff supports the developer being responsible for the replacement of any trees (max. 14). Any other concerns of the HOA seem to have been caused by reasons other than the developer or lack of maintenance, i.e.: builders or contractors. Mr. Marcus Palkowitsh, the applicant, stated that all maintenance contracts for the subdivision had been transferred to the HOA two years ago, and that if the replacement of a few trees was going to hold up the release of collateral, he was willing to continue to have $3,000 to $4,000 of the collateral withheld in escrow, and the balance released. Mr. Palkowitsh also believed that Mr. Burns had reached an agreement with the current owner of lot 57 to provide a maintenance easement for the sprinkler main and that this also should not hold up the release of collateral.

At this time the hearing was opened for public comment and Mr. Chuck Boyes, HOA Executive Committee, objected to the release of any collateral until all issues with the developer are settled. Mr. Boyes stated that the HOA had a maintenance contract with Mills Brothers Landscaping for mowing, spraying for weeds and maintenance of the detention pond, but did not have a landscaping contract for tree replacement with them. Mr. Boyes further stated that the concerns of the HOA are 1. To deal with the landscaping; 2. Seeding in Phase III; and 3. Sprinkler main relocation.

There being no further public comment, the hearing was closed to the public.

Mr. Palkowitsh rebutted that the Forester for Larimer County looked at the site and wrote a letter stating the landscaping was in good shape and the items that he designated for improvement/replacement had been attended to. Since Mr. Burns has reached an agreement with the owner of lot 57 regarding the sprinkler main, and the concern for seeding in Phase III, which is an emergency access between two lots with a road base, Mr. Palkowitsh felt the collateral should be released. Much discussion ensued regarding the landscaping contract and warranty periods. Chair Olson asked Mr. Burns for an update on lot 57. Mr. Burns stated that he had met with the owner and the owner agreed verbally to a maintenance easement; however the agreement has not been signed pending the outcome of this hearing. Mr. Burns further stated that another option discussed and agreed to by the developer, was that the developer pay to extend the sprinkler main line off of lot 57; and that the owner of lot 57 seemed amiable to the maintenance easement agreement.

Commissioner Rennels suggested that an acceptable amount of money be held in escrow until the trees, which appear to have died, are replaced and the balance released today. Mr. Legg suggested the Board conditionally approve the release of $19,000 today, keeping $2,602 in escrow, pending the receipt of a signed agreement with the owner of lot 57.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Vista View Estates PUD release of warranty collateral for landscaping in the amount of $19,000, and the balance of $2,602 to be held in escrow for replacement landscaping and pending the release of any funds, a signed easement agreement with the owner of lot 57 shall be received in the Planning Department.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

6. BARNHART ZONING VIOLATION: 460 S. BOISE DRIVE, AKA 460 NORTH COUNTY ROAD 11H, LOVELAND.

Staff finds that the property is in violation of the Larimer County Zoning Resolution:

Section 9.1:A junkyard is not a permitted use in FA-farming zoning district; and Section 9.1:A solid waste (tree) disposal site is not a permitted use in the FA Farming district. The property is also in violation of the Larimer County Mobile Home Resolution: Section 6.2 (35) Definition of travel trailer "...to be used as a temporary dwelling for travel, recreation and vacation uses." Staff findings include 1. The subject property is zoned FA-farming, under the Larimer County Zoning Resolution; 2. Northwest of the property is Winona Elementary School. The continued use of the property as a junkyard is a safety issue, as there is no screening/fencing on the property; 3. The use of the property as a tree disposal site is considered a fire hazard; 4. The use of the travel trailer as a dwelling is in violation of the Larimer County Zoning Resolution; 5. The continued use of the property, in violation of the zoning regulations, will affect property values in the area. Staff recommendation is to find that a violation does exist, require compliance within 60 days, and authorize legal action if the deadline is not met. Ms. DeLude stated that the owner has started to clean the site and has indicated that the property will be in compliance within the required 60 days. Therefore, Ms. DeLude was asking the Board to start the 60-day period for legal action for the record.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board of County Commissioners find that a violation does exist on the Barnhart property located at 460 S. Boise Drive a.k.a. 460 North County Road 11H and authorize legal action in 60 days if the property is not in compliance.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

There being no further business, the hearing recessed at 4:00 p.m.

CONTINUATION OF LAND USE HEARING

(#598 & 599)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 7:00 p.m. in regular session with Larry Timm, Director of Planning. Chair Olson presided and Commissioners Disney and Rennels were present. Also present were Fred Starr, Planner II; Doug Ryan, Environmental Health Planner; Traci Downs, Civil Engineer; and Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney. Recording Clerk: Jean O'Connor.

Chair Olson stated that Cherry Mill General Development Plan #00-S1534 had been withdrawn and removed from the agenda by the applicant.

1. COOMBS RANCH CELL TOWER - SPECIAL REVIEW: N 1/2 SE 1/4 OF SECTION 24,T09N, R70W LOCATED ON THE WEST SIDE OF U.S HIGHWAY 287 AT MILE MARKER 361 APPROXIMATELY 2.0 MILES NORTH OF TED'S PLACE.

This is a request for the construction of a 160-ft. tall monopole cellular tower for the purpose of co-locating up to four CMRS provider's antenna arrays, and electronic communications equipment used to provide wireless communications services. Staff recommendation is to DENY the request based upon the Findings as stated in the staff report to the Planning Commission.

Mr. Starr provided a brief background on the request and stated that the applicant would like to present a "modified" proposal which is slightly different than the proposal heard by the Planning Commission and has not been reviewed by staff. Therefore, staff continues to recommend denial of the application for the same reasons stated above.

Mr. Larry Storms, representative for the applicant, asked the Board to consider the modified proposal since the changes are minimal yet the decrease in visual impacts is significant. After much discussion amongst the Board as to what information they should consider; the CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to hear all testimony from the applicant and public. Mr. Storms continued that the goal of the applicant was to co-locate up to four additional carriers on the site as well as comply with all applicable County regulations. The modification to the proposal was to decrease the height of the structure by 22-feet and limit the antenna widths to 24-inches from the pole. Mr. Storms detailed the location of the site, how to access the site and how the application complied with applicable regulations. Mr. Nate Foster, representative for the applicant, addressed the site selection process and criteria used to make a determination for a site. Mr. Foster further stated that three sites had been considered, two were on the East Side of Hwy 287, which failed the selection process and one was on the West Side, which was considered but an agreement could not be reached for the lease of the site. Mr. Storms stated that the Board had approved other poles in the area, which are closer to Hwy 287 and taller than this proposal and provided pictures to illustrate the lack of visual impacts this proposed pole would have on commuters as well as neighbors. Mr. Storms referred to staff findings: 1.c and 3.b- regarding visual impacts and stated that staff did not have evidence to refute the findings of the applicant. Mr. Storms further stated that the only visual impacts were to the lessor and their immediate family, and they are not concerned with the pole. With respect to staff concerns regarding "overlap or continuous" coverage, Mr. Storms stated that a gap in coverage could occur dependant on the frequency of the carrier and staff had not proven that with the proposals submitted for review, the applicant could not provide continuous coverage. Mr. Storms concluded by stating that the proposal before the Board, both the original and the modified, met all requirements and is not obtrusive to the corridor.

Commissioner Disney clarified for the record, that the previous cell tower approved by a previous Board was done prior to the adoption of the C.R.M.S. regulation. Chair Olson asked Mr. Starr why staff was recommending denial. Mr. Starr replied that in reviewing the regulations, staff did not feel the applicant had reduced the visual impacts and that the applicant had not evaluated reasonable alternative sites. Commissioner Disney asked if staff had suggested the applicant consider a "silo stealth antenna" located near Ted's Place. Mr. Starr replied in the affirmative and that stealth antenna are administrative review, however the applicant has not submitted any such proposal. Commissioner Rennels asked if a tower was located on the East Side of Hwy 287, would that mandate a second tower and Mr. Starr said that is correct according to the information supplied by the applicant.

At this time the hearing was opened for public comment. Mr. Larry Cecil, adjacent property owner, stated that he travels the corridor round trip twice a day, his wife is handicapped and current cellular phone reception is poor at best. Extended and expanded communication will benefit all citizens. Mr. Steve Klibbe, adjacent property owner, stated that the 287 corridor should be preserved and another cell tower will open the door for yet more towers since the regulations allow for a tower every 1000-feet. Mr. Klibbe felt that communication could wait for a landline and the tower would not be a benefit to the community. The corridor would be known as "Tower Boulevard" which will have immense visual impacts. Mr. Keith Gallie, adjacent property owner was concerned that he had not received notification from the applicant or county; just the homeowners association. Mr. John Tschirhart, economist and homeowner, detailed a benefit/cost analysis and that the "cost" far outweighed the "benefits" thereby the citizens of Larimer County would be subsidizing the cell phone service providers. Mr. Tschirhart also stated approval of the proposal was a bad social investment and cell phone usage causes accidents and emergencies. Mr. Harold Kaufman, LaPorte resident, stated the existing cell tower located at Colorado Lien, covers the area except in Owl Canyon and that at the last public hearing, the question was asked if the Parks and Master Plans were not going to be applied to this application, then when. Ms. Patrice Berglund, adjacent property owner, felt other solutions probably existed to solve the cell phone coverage problem, and would be less visually impacting. Mr. Jacque Rieux, property owner, agreed with previous comments and stated the applicant does not seem to have tried very hard to find a better location and is just out to make a great deal. Mr. Duane Lutsey, property owner, stated that he could see the proposed tower and it would be visually impacting and lower the aesthetic values of the surrounding properties.

There being no additional public comments, the hearing was closed to the public. Mr. Storms rebutted saying that the height of the proposed tower is lower and the antennas are smaller and it is the applicants desire to accommodate additional users if those providers can produce enough MHz at the lower level on the pole. Mr. Storms further stated that application for co-location on the Lien site had been submitted to staff since the last public hearing and pointed out that the proposed monopole is similar to other utility poles in the area. Mr. Nate Foster addressed stealth sites and that wireless data providers use multiple sites and dishes and that by using the cell tower approach, such as this proposal, additional providers could be accommodated. The reasoning for not considering a stealth site confused Commissioner Disney and asked Mr. Foster if a stealth site had even been considered. Mr. Foster stated that it was briefly discussed and that his client had built stealth sites in Aspen and Vail, however it was determined to be cost prohibitive to his client to build a stealth site for this location. Much discussion ensured regarding a stealth structure vs. tower construction and coverage for co-locators.

Commissioner Rennels stated that it is important to have better service in the 287 corridor but by compromising the height of the tower, the ability to accommodate other providers will be diminished, thereby triggering another tower or two. Commissioner Rennels asked if other options could be reviewed. Mr. Starr stated that this was the only application and he had no knowledge of other provider requests for service or the type of service they might request. Staff still believes the applicant should evaluate other sites, perhaps at Ted's Place and on the ridgeline. Commissioner Disney stated that he understood the desire for coverage but that the bigger picture is to get the market to do the right thing for the benefit of the public and is not convinced the applicant considered other technology or sites. Chair Olson agreed with the need for continuous service and was not convinced the proposal was the best site.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board of County Commissioners deny the Coombs Ranch Cell Tower Special Review #99-Z1309.

Motion carried 2 - 1 with Commissioner Rennels dissenting.

There being no further business the hearing was adjourned at 9:30 p.m.

1. PUBLIC COMMENT: Mr. John Meleski, resident of Fort Collins, addressed the Board with his concerns over the competitive bid process for Larimer County buildings and the perceived lack of effort by the Board to seek and receive bids. Commissioner Rennels stated that 42 proposals had been sent out for bid and only 2 were returned and stated that the Board can not force contractors to respond.
