MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

 

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2006

 

LAND USE HEARING

(#116)

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 3:00 p.m. with Rob Helmick, Principal Planner.  Chair Gibson presided, and Commissioner Rennels was present.  Also present were:  Doug Ryan, Environmental Health Department; David Karan, Planning Department; Traci Downs, Engineering Department; Bill Ressue, Assistant County Attorney; and Gael Cookman, Deputy Clerk.

 

Chair Gibson opened the meeting with the pledge of Allegiance, and asked for public comment on the County Budget and the Land Use Code.  No one from the audience addressed the Board regarding these topics.  Ms. Cookman then presented the referee recommendations for the Board of Equalization Hearing held on September 20, 2006, and asked for approval on the same.

 

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve of the referee recommendations for the Board of Equalization Hearing held on September 20, 2006.

Motion carried 2-0.

 

Chair Gibson then noted that Items 1 and 2 are on consent and would not be discussed unless requested by the Board, staff, or members of the audience:

 

1.  BARKER MINOR LAND DIVISION #06-S2613:  This is a request for a Minor Land Division to divide a 16-acre parcel into two lots, one for a proposed electric utility substation (1.12 acres) and the other for an existing manufactured home and operating gravel mine.

 

The proposal is to divide a 16-acre parcel into two lots of 1.12 acres and 15 acres each.  The smaller parcel would then be sold to Poudre Valley Rural Electric Association who could construct an electric utility substation (Location & Extent application file 06-Z01604) on the property.  The substation is intended to provide more stable electric utility service to the area residents.

The property is currently being use for gravel mining and has an alleged Land Use Code violation consisting of outdoor storage of inoperable vehicles, junk, and debris.  The violation is being investigated through the county’s code compliance department.  The recommendation from staff includes a condition regarding resolution of the violation.

 

·  The Larimer County Engineering Department commented on right-of-way requirements for County Road 162 (Deadman Road); locating any new fences and structures out of the existing right-of-way and any right-of-way to be dedicated with the minor land division; access permits for any new accesses; and drainage/erosion impacts from new construction.  The plat document needs to be revised to properly show existing right-of-way and any proposed right-of-way necessary for a local road (60 feet of total right-of-way).  Also, the department’s surveyor discussed corrections that need to be made to the plat document prior to recording.

·  The Department of Health and Environment commented on the existing mining operation and recommended a condition of approval that would prevent the smaller lot from being utilized for residential buildings and septic systems, because of the lots size.  A condition is proposed in the recommendation below to address this concern. 

·  Code Compliance Department stated that no permit could be found for the existing manufactured home on the property.  If it was placed there after 1972, a permit was required.  Also, a complaint was received regarding the outdoor storage of inoperable vehicles, junk, and debris on the property.  Staff is investigating the complaint and will contact the owner to discuss a timeline for clean up.  A condition is proposed in the recommendation below to address this concern.  

 

The only outstanding concern relates to the inoperable vehicles, junk, and debris being stored on the property. A proposed condition of approval dealing with this violation is listed in the recommendation below.

 

The Development Services Team finds, with certain conditions as recommended below, that the application meets all of the Review Criteria for Minor Land Division applications 5.4.3., as outlined in the Land Use Code, including the appeal from minimum lot size requirement.

The Larimer County Development Services Team recommends the Board of County Commissioners grant the appeal of Section 4.1.5.B.1.a Minimum lot size, for the Barker Minor Land Division, subject to the following conditions:

 

1.    Prior to recordation of the MLD plat, the applicant shall resolve the outstanding Land Use Code violation as outlined in memo dated September 1, 2006, from Candace Phippen, Code Compliance Supervisor.

2.    Prior to recordation of the plat, the applicant shall make the technical corrections to the MLD plat as requested by the Larimer County Engineering Department’s surveyor.

3.    Prior to recordation of the plat, the applicant shall correct the plat to show the existing right-of-way and any proposed right-of-way necessary to achieve a total width of 60 feet for the section of County Road 162 that fronts this MLD.

4.    Lot 2 (1.12 acres) is approved for an electric utility substation.  Due to the small lot size, which does not comply with the minimum lot area (2 acres) for new septic systems, the lot is not eligible for a residential building and septic permit.

 

2.  DRY CREEK RIDGE SUBDIVISION - #05-S2393:  This is a request for Preliminary Plat Review of a Subdivision division to create 3 single-family residential lots and one outlot on 9.79 acres.

On August 16, 2006, the Development Services Team presented the Preliminary Plat for the Dry Creek Ridge Subdivision to the Planning Commission as a consent agenda item.  No public testimony regarding the Dry Creek Ridge Subdivision was offered; therefore, the Planning Commission made a recommendation to approve this three lot Subdivision as recommended by the Development Services Team.

 

The Development Services Team recommends that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Preliminary Plat for the Dry Creek Ridge Subdivision - File #05-S2393, as recommended by the Larimer County Planning Commission with the conditions outlined below:

                   

1.    The Final Plat shall be consistent with the approved Preliminary Plat and with the information contained in the Dry Creek Ridge Subdivision -File #03-S2143.  The applicant shall be subject to all other verbal or written representations and commitments of record for the Dry Creek Ridge Subdivision.

2.    Engineered foundations are required for new habitable construction on this site as recommended by the Colorado Geologic Survey.

3.    Passive radon mitigation measures shall be included in the construction of all new residential structures on these lots.  The results of a radon detection test once the structure is enclosed but prior to issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy shall be submitted to the Building Department.  As an alternative, a builder may present a prepaid receipt from a radon tester that specifies that a test will be done within 30 days. A permanent Certificate of Occupancy can be issued when the prepaid receipt is submitted.

4.    The following fees shall be collected at building permit for new single family dwellings. Thompson R2-J school fee, Larimer County fees for County and Regional Transportation Capital Expansion (TCEFs), Larimer County Regional Park Fee (in lieu of dedication) and Loveland Basin drainage fee.  The fee amount that is current at the time of building permit application shall apply. Both the Development Agreements and the Disclosure Affidavits will reference this requirement.  The County Engineer’s office also requires a Developmental Construction Permit, prior to commencing development construction.

5.    The applicant shall execute a Development Agreement and a Disclosure Notice for approval by the County to be recorded with the Final Plat.  This notice shall provide information to all lot owners of the conditions of approval and special costs or fees associated with the approval of this project.  The Disclosure Notice shall include, but not be limited to, the issues related to rural development, fire department requirements, the requirement for any access permits and culverts, the recommendations of the State Geological Survey (addressing foundations), building envelopes, the need for passive radon mitigation, and the issues raised in the review and/or related to compliance with the Larimer County Land Use Code.

6.    Lot owners, the Dry Creek Ridge Subdivision Homeowners Association and South Side Ditch Company will adhere to the provisions of the agreement dated May 22, 1998, recorded May 28, 1998, at Reception Number 98043102 and of Section 8.8 of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

 

 

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve Items 1 and 2, as listed on the Consent Agenda and outlined above.

Motion carried 2-0.

 

The meeting recessed at 3:05 p.m.

 

PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING THE CREATION

OF A LIBRARY DISTRICT (ISSUE 5C)

(#116)

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 7:00 p.m. with Assistant County Manager, Neil Gluckman.  Chair Gibson presided and Commissioner Rennels was present.  The following citizens were also present:  Mike Powers, Bruce Lockhart, Jim McCauley, Melissa Powell, Carolyn Cox, Megan Marchant, Robin Guard, Larry Doyle, Lupe Aragon, Hellen Brauer, Mary Robertson, Carson Block, Katrina Marchant, Robert Fetsch, Susan Authement, Rob Stansbury, Mary Beck, Therese Sullivan, Tina Shear, Larry Webber, Kent Sutherland, Susan Grebel, and Martha Tharp; and  Kristen Romary, Deputy Clerk.

Chair Gibson opened the meeting and asked for public comment on the County Budget and the Land Use Code.  No one from the audience addressed the Board regarding these topics. 

 

Mike Powers addressed the Board and described Ballot Issue 5C, creation of a Regional Library District, which will be voted on in November.  He explained that one of the main reasons for the creation of a Library District is to provide library services to citizens outside the city limits.  Also, current city residents will receive services that were previously cut due to under funding, such as extended business hours, new book drop locations, and a new southeast branch.  The proposed Library District will increase household taxes an average of $3.98 per month, and will ensure that the much needed funding for local libraries can continue. 

Mr. Lockhart voiced his concerns regarding the potential creation of a Library District.  He believes that a permanent Library District is unjustified and cannot compete with other interests in the area.  Also, he feels as though the cost to tax payers will be too much money for something that will soon be obsolete.  Mr. Lockhart explained that there is a decreasing need for libraries in general, and with more information becoming available online, additional funding for libraries doesn’t make sense. 

Mr. Doyle voiced several concerns regarding the creation of a Library District as well, and questioned the proposed boundary lines.  He stated that a first rate city, such as Fort Collins, should have a first rate library system, but hopes that there is a structure in place to manage the resources efficiently, should the ballot issue pass in November.

On the contrary, Mr. McCauley, Ms. Powell, Ms. Guard, and Ms. Brauer addressed the Board individually and emphasized the growing need for additional funding that would be specifically allocated to library services.  They stated that this would only take place with the creation of a Library District.  If Ballot Issue 5C passes in November, the community will have consistent public services available.  It was stated that the library is much more than a place to read and check out books.  Free computer classes are available, community groups have a place to hold meetings, and summer reading programs provide a safe place for children to learn and grow.  Ms. Marchant, a participant in the annual summer reading programs, told the Board about her favorite books, and explained that she loved to go to the library with her family.   

Ms. Aragon, a partially blind community member, stated that it would not be possible for her to enjoy her favorite authors and subjects, if it wasn’t for the libraries archive of books on tape.  Similarly, Ms. Marchant explained that the library was crucial for parents and students who are home schooled.  She stated that many families would not be able to afford home schooling for their children if they were forced to purchase all of the educational material, as opposed to checking items out at a library for free. 

Ms. Brauer, Ms. Robertson, Mr. Block, Mr. Fetsch, Ms. Authement, Mr. Stansbury, Ms. Beck, Ms. Sullivan, Ms. Shear, Mr. Webber, Mr. Sutherland, Ms. Grebel, and Ms. Tharp, addressed the Board individually and stressed the need for a Library District.  It was explained that a Library District would hold board members accountable, and provide a more powerful representation of engaged citizens, and community minded individuals.  The residents listed above described their own reasons for supporting the creation of a Library District; but most importantly, they believe that it will provide stable funding for libraries, and it will be essential for maintaining consistent, quality services in the future as well.

The Board thanked those who worked hard to get Issue 5C on the ballot for November, and those who were in attendance at the hearing this evening.

 

The hearing adjourned at 8:20 p.m.

7.  2007 MEDICAL INSURANCE PLAN RENEWAL:  Ms. Cerciello explained that they have concluded discussions with Gallagher Benefit Services, the County’s benefits consultant,  and she presented the recommendation for the 2007 medical insurance plan.  The renewal for 2007 was based on the first eight months of claims processed by Great-West, prior claims experience with PacifiCare, and medical trends.  Using these numbers, the medical insurance renewal came in at a 10.5% increase.  By the end of 2006, the Human Resources Department anticipates accumulating a reserve balance of approximately $500,000.  A premium increase of 10.5% should allow the County to cover increases in claims costs plus add an additional amount to the reserve by the end of 2007.  Additionally, this renewal does not require any changes to be made to the EPO or PPO plan designs.

Motion carried 3-0.
