LAND-USE PLANNING HEARING

(#129)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 6:30 p.m. for a Land Use Planning Hearing and discussion of the Loveland Intergovernmental Agreement. Chair Bender presided and Commissioner Rennels was present. Also present were Larry Timm, Planning Director and Gael Cookman, Recording Clerk.

Chair Bender asked for public comment on the Land Use Code. No one addressed the Board for public comment. Mr. Timm then presented the Board with a brief history of the Loveland Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA), noting that it was first adopted in 1980 and has been virtually unchanged for 20 years. Mr. Timm stated that all parties agreed that it would be better to draft a new IGA rather than to try and revise the existing one to meet the current needs of both communities. Mr. Timm explained that there is still an issue with the expansion of the Growth Management Area and he requested that the Board table this item until 6:30 p.m., April 21, 2003, in order to give the municipalities time to come to an agreement on this issue.
