R02-58s FINDINGS AND RESOLUTION APPROVING THE SCHOOLEY MINOR LAND DIVISION

6. REVIEW OF PLAT NOTE FOR SUTTON LANE MINOR SUBDIVISION (BOUNDARY ADJUSTMENT) AND SUTTON LANE MINOR SUBDIVISION MINOR MODIFICATION

Mr. Joseph requested the Board consider a note contained on the final plat for Sutton Lane and noted that staff believes the note holds no legal ramifications to either the applicant or the Brown's, who currently access there property via the referenced driveway adjacent to said plat note. Commissioner Rennels asked if the advertised legal notice was sufficient to include the plat note in question? Mr. Joseph stated the note was added after the Board's approval at public hearing.

Ms. Lucia Liley, representative for the applicants provided the Board with the sequence of events and noted that the applicant did ask the surveyor to remove the driveway; however the surveyor informed them that as a requirement of State statute and the Estes Planning Department, the driveway must be shown and that this is when the applicant requested the plat note. Ms. Liley further stated that "access" is a civil matter and not within the jurisdiction of the Board and believed the plat note does not give or take away any rights of either party.

At this time the hearing was opened to the public and Ms. Nancy Brown, adjacent property owner that has been using the access, stated that the driveway was not noted on the plat nor was the note, when the Board approved the plat during a public hearing May 2001. Ms. Brown stated that the driveway and plat note appeared during a hearing in October 2001 at which she was told by planning staff that there would be no public comments heard. Ms. Brown believed the plat note could be used against her and perceived as part of the Board's official approval and further stated that the plat note has an arrow pointing to her access and that no other driveways are referenced. Ms. Brown stated that she had been told by two of the three applicants, that her driveway would be closed off and access denied upon approval of the amended plat.

At this time the hearing was closed to the public and Ms. Liley reiterated that the plat note has no affect on the legal rights of either the applicant or the Brown's.

Much discussion ensued regarding the necessity for showing the driveway improvement on the plat and if the "plat note" is required. Mr. Joseph stated that improvements are required but that the note is not. Ms. Haag stated the Board had two options; 1. Leave the driveway and the note or 2. Remove both.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners re-open the public hearing.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

Ms. Brown stated that, for the past two years, all plats submitted for review did not contain a note, and stated that if there is no legal significance, why all of a sudden does the note appear during the final hearing at which no public comment is taken?

Much discussion continued regarding approval of the plat in May and the addition of the current plat note.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners delay decision on this item for 45-minutes to allow the applicant, the Brown's and staff to discuss potential re-wording options for the plat note.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

The permits shall reflect the yearly maximum tonnage as approved by the Board of County Commissioners.

Mr. Wheeler stated the Russell Pit is a "Mom & Pop" small business within Larimer County and staff developed some "creative" conditions in support of the application. Commissioner Rennels asked how the County would know if production went over the proposed threshold and Mr. Wheeler stated that the State requires the applicant to submit annual reports to the County.

Mr. Jim and Mrs. Beckie Krakel expressed their appreciation to staff for their assistance but questioned why Transportation Capital Expansion Fees (CTEF) were being charged since the operation has been in effect since the 1950's and there is no increased impact.

Commissioner Rennels asked how much aggregate would be brought to the site from outside sources and Mr. Wheeler explained that when material is brought to the site of a batch plant, staff considers the plant an accessory use, which requires a zoning designation of I-Industrial, which the applicant is not zoned. Chair Gibson asked if the Planning Commission considered a batch plant and Mr. Wheeler replied in the affirmative but that the operation would be using onsite aggregate, not off-site.

Mr. Krakel stated that it is not necessary to consider the batch plant at this time, since its use would occur after the original mining site was completed. Mr. Krakel state that time frame could be 2 to 3 years away.

Ms. Downs clarified that staff had taken a conservative approach in calculating TCEFs and that they are based on increased use. Commissioner Rennels noted that the applicant could appeal the fees to the County Engineer and request no fees until the applicant's operation moves into the expanded areas.

Chair Gibson noted that no public is in attendance for this item.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Bender moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Russell Gravel Pit Special Review as presented and amended by increasing annual production to 48,000 tons.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

Conclusion of Sutton Lane Boundary Line Adjustment Review of Plat Note: Mr. Joseph had to return to Estes Park and was not available for the conclusion of this item. Ms. Haag suggested the Board sign a resolution, to be recorded, clarifying the plat note. Ms. Haag suggested the following statement be contained in a separate resolution to be recorded, " The driveway note shown on the Sutton Lane Boundary Line Adjustment Plat recorded on ___ day, reception number ____ is for planning and informational purposes only. The decision of the Board of County Commissioners in approving the Sutton Lane Boundary Line Adjustment Plat is not intended to limit or enhance any legal rights of any party with respect to the drive shown adjacent to the drive note".

Mr. Legg stated that he had spoken with both parties during the intermission and that no agreement was reached.

Ms. Liley stated that the applicants concur with the additional recorded statement.

Ms. Brown reiterated that the note was not present upon the May approval and should be removed. Ms. Brown further noted that if the note must be present, that any reference to her driveway be removed and the note relocated so as to be in the same area as other plat notes.

Commissioner Rennels stated that it is her understanding that the note specifically applies to the Brown's driveway and no other and stated that the Findings and Resolution should state that the note is present for "planning purposes" only.
