MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

 

Monday, DecEMBER 17, 2007

 

LAND USE HEARING

(#150)

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 3:00 p.m. with Matt Lafferty, Principle Planner.  Chair Rennels presided and Commissioners Gibson and Eubanks were present.  Also present were:  Al Kadera, Samantha Mott, Toby Stauffer and Sean Wheeler, Planning; Rex Burns, Scott Cornell, Traci Downs, Jeri Feil, Mark Peterson and Martina Wilkinson, Engineering; Doug Ryan, Environmental Health; William Ressue, Assistant County Attorney; and Angela Myers, Deputy Clerk.

 

Chair Rennels confirmed with staff that the Estes Valley Development Code Block 10 Amendments were to be removed from the agenda, at the applicant’s request.

 

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

 

Chair Rennels explained that the following items are on consent and would not be discussed unless requested by the Board, staff or members of the audience.  Gordon Gathright, affected property owner, requested that Item 5 on the Consent Agenda, Gallegos Exemption Tract 1 Amended Plat and Lot Size Appeal, be pulled for discussion.  He indicated that, as an affected property owner, he needs to understand what this matter is about and what impact it will have on his property.

 

1. MCCONNELL DRIVE CONDOMINIUM MAP, FILE #07-S2750:  This request is to establish a condominium and related map with an existing duplex. Land is Lot 2, Block 6 of Cotton Willow Estates 2nd Filing and a portion of Tract A of Block 6 of Cotton Willow Estates 4th Filing.

 

The purpose of the project is to convert the existing duplex ownership from one owner to a condominium where a different owner could own each unit. The duplex use will change only the possibility of the type of ownership and all that condominium ownership entails.  No other changes are anticipated.  The duplex use is a nonconforming use, but no increase in nonconformity will occur with the proposed project.

 

The site complies with Section 8.5 of the Larimer County Land Use Code (LUC) with existing mature landscaping, with Section 8.6 with existing parking spaces and Section 8.7, because it has been repealed (signage).

 

The Development Services Team finds that the request meets the requirements of the Larimer County Land Use Code.  The Development Services Team, therefore, recommends that the Board of County Commissioners approve the proposed McConnell Drive Condo Map, where the existing duplex would become a condominium, subject to the following condition:  1. All plans for changes of either occupancy, tenant finishes, remodels or additions to the existing structure will be required to be stamped by a Colorado Registered Engineer and a Colorado Licensed Architect.  A building permit is required from Larimer County for all of these items.

 

2. GLACIER VIEW MEADOWS 9TH FILING LOTS 62A AND 80A LOT CONSOLIDATION/EASMENT VACATION, FILE #07-S2753:  This request is for lot consolidation to combine two contiguous lots and vacate a 20-foot utility easement located on the common lot line of Lot 62A and Lot 80A of the Glacier View Meadows PUD, 9th Filing.  If approved, the recording instrument will be a Finding and Resolution from the Board of County Commissioners.

 

No neighbors have voiced any objections to this proposal.  Additionally, the following Larimer County agencies have stated that they have no objections to this proposal:  Department of Health and Environment, Addressing Section, Engineering Department Development Review Services, Assessor’s Office, Code Compliance Section.

 

For detailed comments, see the letters from each department. The Assessor’s letter provides the new legal description of the resultant lot. Staff referred the application to other internal and external reviewing agencies and the affected utility companies, no other comments were received.

 

The proposed Lot Consolidation of Glacier View Meadows 9th Filing Lots 62A and 80A and 20-foot utility easement vacation, will not adversely affect any neighboring properties or any county agency.  The lot consolidation will not result in any additional lots.  The staff finds that the request meets the requirements of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of Lot Consolidation for Glacier View Meadows 9th Filing Lots 62A and 80A and the vacation of the 20-foot utility easement located on the common lot line, subject to the following five conditions:  1. All conditions of approval shall be met and the final resolution of the County Commissioners recorded by June 17, 2008, or this approval shall be null and void.  2. The resultant lot is subject to any and all covenants, deed restrictions or other conditions that apply to the original lots.  3. Prior to recordation of the Findings and Resolution, the applicant shall provide the Larimer County Planning Department with a signed and notarized Lien Holder Signature Form.  4. Prior to recordation of the Findings and Resolution, the applicant shall provide the Larimer County Planning Department with a signed application form.  5. The vacation of the utility easement and the consolidation of the lots shall be finalized at such time when the Findings and Resolution of the County Commissioners is recorded. 

 

3. GLACIER VIEW MEADOWS 10TH FILING LOTS 49 AND 70 LOT CONSOLIDATION/EASMENT VACATION, FILE #07-S2754:  The request is for lot consolidation to combine two contiguous lots and vacate a 20-foot utility easement located on the common lot line of Lot 49 and Lot 70 of the Glacier View Meadows PUD 10th Filing.  If approved, the recording instrument will be a Finding and Resolution from the Board of County Commissioners.

 

No neighbors have voiced any objections to this proposal.  Additionally, the following Larimer County agencies have stated that they have no objections to this proposal:  Department of Health and Environment, Addressing Section, Engineering Department Development Review Services, Assessor’s Office, Code Compliance Section.

 

For detailed comments, see the letters from each department. The Assessor’s letter provides the new legal description of the resultant lot. Staff referred the application to other internal and external reviewing agencies and the affected utility companies, no other comments were received.

 

The proposed Lot Consolidation of Glacier View Meadows 10th Filing Lots 49 and 70 and 20-foot utility easement vacation, will not adversely affect any neighboring properties or any county agency.  The lot consolidation will not result in any additional lots.  The staff finds that the request meets the requirements of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of Lot Consolidation for Glacier View Meadows 10th Filing Lots 49 and 70 and the vacation of the 20-foot utility easement located on the common lot line subject to the following four conditions:  1. All conditions of approval shall be met and the final resolution of the County Commissioners recorded by June 17, 2008, or this approval shall be null and void.  2. The resultant lot is subject to any and all covenants, deed restrictions or other conditions that apply to the original lots.  3. Prior to recordation of the Findings and Resolution, the applicant shall provide the Larimer County Planning Department with a signed and notarized Lien Holder Signature Form.  4. The vacation of the utility easement and the consolidation of the lots shall be finalized at such time when the Findings and Resolution of the County Commissioners is recorded. 

 

4.  CRYSTAL LAKES 3RD FILING LOTS 57 AND 58 LOT CONSOLIDATION, FILE 307-S2755:  This request is for lot consolidation to combine two adjacent lots, Lots 57 and 58, into one lot in the Crystal Lakes, Third Filing Subdivision.  If approved, the recording instrument will be a Findings and Resolution from the Board of County Commissioners. 

 

No neighbors have voiced any objections to this proposal.  Additionally, the following Larimer County agencies have stated that they have no objections to this proposal:  Department of Health and Environment, Engineering Department Development Review Team, Code Compliance Section.

 

The proposed Lot Consolidation for Lots 57 and 58 of Crystal Lakes, Third Filing Subdivision will not adversely affect any neighboring properties or any county agency.  The lot consolidation will not result in any additional lots.  The staff finds that the request meets the requirements of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Lot Consolidation for lots 57 and 58 of Crystal Lakes, Third Filing Subdivision, subject to the following two conditions:  1.    All conditions of approval shall be met and the final resolution of the County Commissioners recorded by June 17, 2008, or this approval shall be null and void.  2. The resultant lot is subject to any and all covenants, deed restrictions or other conditions that apply to the original lots.

Commissioner Gibson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve Consent Agenda Items 1 through 4 as outlined above.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

5.  GALLEGOS EXEMPTION TRACT 1 AMENDED PLAT AND LOT SIZE APPEAL, FILE #07-S2756 AND 07-G0151:  Toby Stauffer explained that this is a request to amend the plat to reconfigure two lots to the perceived line of ownership.  The request includes an appeal to the minimum lot size of 2.3 acres in the FA-1-Farming zone district (LULUC, Section 4.1.2.B.1.a) and an accompanying BLA (File #07-S2757). 

 

The applicant requests an amendment to Tract 1 of the Gallegos Exemption (File #34-84). The purpose of this Amended Plat is to adjust the boundary line of two adjacent lots, one is an Exemption Lot, (Parcel 97081-00-041), and one is a Metes and Bounds Lot, (Parcel 97081-00-019). This amended plat is moving forward with a companion Boundary Line Adjustment (File #07-S2757) and Lot Size Appeal (File #07-G0151).

 

The lot line separating the two parcels is being shifted to the perceived line of occupation for both owners. The south property line of the Campana property, Parcel 97081-00-019 is shifting to the north, decreasing the size of the parcel from 0.7 acres to approximately 0.4 acres. The new lot line will be on a fence line separating the two properties.

 

By shifting the property line, Tract 1 of the Gallegos Exemption will now encompass the legal access and driveway to the house. Currently the driveway and access cross two parcels.

 

The proposed plat amendment to adjust the lot line between Tract 1 of the Gallegos Exemption (File #34-84) and a Metes and Bounds lot, Parcel 97081-00-019, will not result in any additional lots.  The Amended Plat will not adversely affect any neighboring properties or any county agency, and the request meets the review criteria for a lot size appeal.  Should the Commissioners approve the appeal request, staff finds that the Amended Plat request meets the requirements of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

This amended plat is moving forward with a companion Boundary Line Adjustment (File #07-S2757) and Lot Size Appeal (File #07-G0151).

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Amended Plat of Tract 1 of the Gallegos Exemption and Campana Lot Size Appeal, subject to the following two conditions and authorization for the Chairman to sign the plat when the conditions are met and the plat is presented for signature:  1. The Final Plat shall be recorded by June 17, 2008, or this approval shall be null and void.  2.         Prior to the recordation of the Final Plat the applicant shall make the technical corrections requested by Dale Greer, Land Surveyor of the Larimer County Engineering Department.

 

Mr. Gathright confirmed with staff that the new property line will be between the two properties where the fence is currently located, and asked if there are any other property lines affected by this request.  Ms. Stauffer confirmed the location of the new property line where the fence is currently located and indicated that there are no other property lines affected by this requested.  Ms. Stauffer further confirmed, at Mr. Gathright’s request, that the zoning for the affected properties is not changed by this request.

 

Chair Rennels opened the meeting to public comment on this matter; seeing none, public comment was closed.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Eubanks moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Amended Plat of Tract 1 of the Gallegos Exemption and Campana Lot Size Appeal, subject to the following conditions and authorization for the Chairman to sign the plat when the conditions are met and the plat is presented for signature:  1. The Final Plat shall be recorded by June 19, 2008, or this approval shall be null and void.  2. Prior to the recordation of the Final Plat, the applicant shall make the technical corrections requested by Dale Greer, Land Surveyor of the Larimer County Engineering Department.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

6.  LAND USE CODE AMENDMENTS, FILE #07-CA0078:  Al Kadera approached the Board and explained that this is a request to make a number of changes to the adopted Land Use Code.  There was very little discussion of the proposed Code amendments.  Staff presented a slightly different version of Item 3 which had changes that were prompted by discussion at the previous week’s work session.  The changes were designed to better inform the public where the permit requirements originated.

 

Staff also added a phrase to Items 5 and 6 to include accessory outdoor commercial storage and accessory outdoor display and sales in the PD, Planned Development zoning districts that are intended to include those uses.         

 

Mr. Kadera went on to explain the specific changes for which approval is being requested:  [Underlined text is being added to the Code.]

 

Item 1.  Manufactured homes as extended family dwellings. 

We have talked for several years about rewriting Section 18 of the Land Use Code which deals with manufactured homes.  That project has never made it to the list of priorities but there are two discrepancies that need to be addressed. 

Section 18.2.1.B.1 requires all manufactured homes be anchored to a permanent foundation.  When a manufactured home is used as an extended family dwelling we do not want the installation to be permanent.  The extended family dwelling is intended to provide a temporary dwelling to deal with situations such as a sick or elderly family member.  This section should be amended as follows:

Section 18.2..1.B.1 The manufactured home and any additions to it must be permanently anchored to a permanent foundation, except those units which are approved as an extended family dwelling pursuant to Section 4.3.10.G may be installed using any method approved by the State of Colorado Manufactured Home Installation Program.

Section 18.2.1.C specifies that manufactured homes may be used as farmsteads but does not include extended family dwellings.  Amend this section as follows:

Section 18.2.1.C Manufactured homes may be used to provide dwellings for farm, ranch or dairy help as part of a farmstead (see Section 4.3.10.A) or as an extended family dwelling (see Section 4.3.10.G).

Item 2.  Outdoor storage. 

When we discussed outdoor storage over the last several months we were recommending the approval of a new use called concealed storage.  As we discussed the concealed storage use we determined that some amendments to the outdoor storage regulations would be a better alternative.    We intended to add outdoor storage as a use by right in the C-Commercial zoning district as a result of the new screening requirements that were adopted but the proposed regulations were not changed accordingly.  The following amendments will achieve the code changes that we agreed upon.

Amend Section 4.1.18 by adding “Outdoor Storage (R/MS)” in the C-Commercial zoning district under the heading of “Industrial Uses”.

 

Amend Section 4.3.7.H.1 to read, “Outdoor storage as a principal use must be effectively screened from adjacent properties located outside the area that is zoned C-Commercial or I or I-1 Industrial.  See Section 8.5, landscaping.”

Amend the zoning table at the end of Section 4.1 by adding “R/MS” to the Outdoor storage row in the C column.

Item 3.  Water quality during construction. 

Section 8.12 deals with water quality issues during construction projects that disturb a certain minimum area.  The area was originally set at five acres to be consistent with state requirements.  Now the state has changed the minimum to one acre and we need to amend our regulations to be consistent with the state permit requirements.  Rather than adopt a specific acreage we are proposing to relate the minimum area to state requirements, by adding the underlined passages, so we don’t have to amend the code again if the state changes the area specification.

Amend Sections 8.12.4.B and 8.12.4.C to read as follows:

8.12.4. Water quality during construction.

Water quality impacts during the construction phase of a project may include erosion and sedimentation; deposition of wind-blown debris; and release of hazardous materials such as fuels or other chemicals used in the construction process.

Applicants for developments must submit the following documents regarding control of water quality impacts during construction (the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment determines the minimum acreage amounts of disturbed soil where stormwater management plans, stormwater discharge permits and stormwater management reports are required):

A. Preliminary and final drainage reports as specified in the Larimer County Stormwater Design Standards are required. The county engineer must review and approve the drainage reports.

B. If the construction project will disturb an area in excess of the minimum acreage amount specified by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, a stormwater management plan prepared in accordance with the current "Construction Guidance Document: Preparing a Stormwater Management Plan" from the Water Quality Control Division, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, is required. The purpose of a stormwater management plan is to identify potential pollution sources, select appropriate best management practices and design implementation strategies. Guidelines regarding best management practices are included in the "Construction Guidance Document." The county department of public health and environment must review and approve construction stormwater management plans.

C. If the construction project will disturb an area in excess of the minimum acreage amount specified by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, a Colorado Construction Stormwater Discharge Permit is required prior to starting construction.

D. If the construction project will disturb less than the minimum acreage amount specified by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, a stormwater management report is required that contains the following information:

1. A description and map outlining proposed construction activities.

2. Identification of potential pollution sources, including sediment and chemical sources.

3. A description of appropriate best management practices to be implemented before and during construction activities to prevent or minimize release of pollutants. Guidelines regarding best management practices can be obtained from the county planning department.

4. A discussion of how the best management practices will be implemented.

E. The county engineering and health and environment departments will review construction stormwater management reports and recommend they be accepted or rejected prior to the public hearing process.

This amendment also makes these sections consistent with Section 8.12.3.B of the Code.

Item 4. Manufactured homes as storage buildings. 

The use of manufactured homes as single family dwellings is protected by state statute and is provided for in our Land Use Code.  The use of manufactured homes as storage buildings is not directly addressed in the Code.

When we adopted the Mobile Home Resolution in 1970, the Board of Adjustment made a determination that a mobile home that was placed on a permanent foundation, roofed with a pitched roof with standard materials, had regular house siding and had some area added to it, was no longer a mobile home.  This was important because the regulations required that a property owner submit a petition signed by 70 percent of the lot owners within 800 feet of a single wide mobile home before a building permit could be issued.  We carried the Board of Adjustment’s requirements over into the Land Use Code, even though we dropped the petition requirement.

Our staff is often confronted with questions concerning the use of manufactured homes as barns or storage buildings and these are difficult questions because the Code is silent on this issue.  Under the current regulations it might be possible for a property owner to place a single wide manufactured home on their property as a storage building but they would have to meet the same requirements as if it were to be used as a dwelling.  Adding a new Section 18.2.2.E and revising the definition of manufactured home will help answer these questions and prevent Larimer County from becoming a dumping ground for old mobile homes.

At our last work session on this issue we did not discuss the use of manufactured homes as offices or other commercial structures.  The Colorado Housing Authority  and the Department of Housing and Urban Development certify that manufactured, factory built or modular structures are built for certain uses.  There is a “Commercial Modular Identification” that must appear on any factory built structure that is to be used for non-residential purposes and a Colorado Housing Authority or HUD seal for residential structures.  There is no certification for these types of structures as storage buildings. 

Add a new Section 18.2.2.E as follows: 

Section 18.2.2.E   Manufactured homes are designed constructed and intended to be single family dwellings and must bear either the HUD or Colorado Housing Authority seal.  Manufactured homes cannot be used for any purpose other than single family dwellings.  Factory-built non-residential structures must bear the “Commercial Modular Identification” seal issued by the Colorado Housing Authority to be used as offices or other commercial purposes

Amend the definition of manufactured home as follows:

Definition of “Manufactured Home”-A factory-built, single family dwelling structure that complies with the National Manufactured Housing and Construction Standards Act of 1974, 42 U. S. C. 5401 et seq., as amended and bears the seal issued by either the Department of Housing and Urban Development or the Colorado Housing Authority which certifies that the structure is approved to be a dwelling.

There are two other sections of the Code that deal with storage buildings, garages and barns.  These sections should be amended to specify that buildings must be specifically designed and built as storage buildings or barns and they cannot be manufactured homes.

Amend Section 4.3.2.I as follows:

I.  Storage buildings and garages on vacant lots.  Prior to the construction of a single family dwelling each lot may include a storage building or garage for the purpose of storing personal property of the lot owner.  All storage must be inside the storage building or garage.  No residential, business or commercial activities are permitted in these buildings unless approved by the County Commissioners through the special exception, special review or minor special review processes.  On lots of less than two acres (net area) these buildings may not exceed 800 square feet.  On lots of two to five acres (net area) these buildings may not exceed 2,400 square feet.  On lots over five acres (net area) there is no limit to the size of these buildings.  In no event shall the total square footage of detached storage buildings and garages exceed ten percent of the net area of any lot.  Only those buildings that are designed, constructed and approved by the Larimer County Building Department as storage buildings or garages may be used for this purpose.  Manufactured homes, including pre-1974 mobile homes, cannot be used as storage buildings or garages.

Amend Section 4.3.10.D as follows:

D.   Storage buildings and garages.  Each lot may include detached storage buildings and garages for the sole use of the occupants of the principal building or principal use on that lot.  The total ground floor area of all storage buildings and garages on a lot can not exceed ten percent of the lot’s net area.  Semi trailers with attached running gear (i.e. axels, wheels) can not be used as storage buildings or garages.  Only those buildings that are designed, constructed and approved by the Larimer County Building Department as storage buildings or garages may be used for this purpose.  Manufactured homes, including pre-1974 mobile homes, cannot be used as storage buildings, barns or garages.

 

Item 5.  Clarification of Accessory Outdoor Commercial Storage

Staff discussion of the previous code amendments regarding outdoor storage and outdoor display and sales resulted in some modifications that we would like to propose.  We also noted that we must take care to discuss the issues of Accessory Outdoor Commercial Storage and Accessory Outdoor Display and Sales as separate issues.  When they are combined there is confusion and these uses are not intended to be allowed in the same circumstances.

Accessory Outdoor Commercial Storage should be limited to the heavier commercial zoning districts, C-Commercial and I and I-1 Industrial.  One of the traditional differences between zoning districts has been the outdoor activities associated with certain uses.  B-Business for instance is directed more towards retail and professional offices which are not likely to have any accessory outdoor storage.  Having outdoor storage in the T-Tourist and B-Business zones would detract from the appearance of these areas which generally have a different “look” than commercial or industrial areas.

Accessory outdoor storage should also be allowed through the minor special review, special review and special exception processes when the application includes the use and the review criteria in Section 4.3.10.I are met.  The same goes for expansions of nonconforming uses pursuant to Section 4.8.10.  Outdoor storage in conjunction with a home occupation is not allowed unless it is approved as part of the original application through the minor special review process if it meets the criteria.

4.3.10.I  Accessory outdoor commercial storage.  The storage of materials, equipment, products and any other goods that are clearly incidental and subordinate to the principal business, commercial or industrial use of the property.  Parking of employee and customer vehicles is not accessory outdoor commercial storage.  Accessory outdoor commercial storage areas that cannot meet all the following requirements require review and approval through the Minor Special Review process.

1.  Accessory outdoor commercial storage areas must be effectively screened from any adjacent property zoned to allow residential uses (See Section 8.5, Landscaping).

2.  Accessory outdoor commercial storage areas cannot cover an area larger than the principal building on the site or 50% of the total area of the site, whichever is greater. 

3.  Accessory outdoor commercial storage areas must be maintained in an orderly manner with no junk, trash or debris. 

4.  Adequate emergency access lanes must be maintained around and through the storage area.

5.  Accessory outdoor commercial storage must be outside any parking, traffic circulation, right of way and/or landscaping area that serves the site.

6.  Accessory outdoor commercial storage must be outside the sight triangle at any intersection or driveway as determined by the Urban Area Street Standards or the Rural Area Road Standards.

7.  Accessory outdoor commercial storage is permitted only in the C-Commercial, I-Industrial and I-1 Industrial zoning districts or in conjunction with any use that is approved through the Minor Special Review, Special Review or Special Exception processes when the accessory outdoor storage is specifically approved as part of the application or when the expansion of a nonconforming business, commercial or industrial use is approved pursuant to Section 4.8.10 and the approval specifically includes accessory outdoor storage or when the accessory outdoor storage is specifically approved as part of a PD, Planned Development zoning district.

Item 6.  Clarification of Accessory Outdoor Display and Sales

Accessory Outdoor Display and Sales should be allowed only where retail sales are permitted.  This would include the T-Tourist, B-Business, C-Commercial, I-Industrial and RFLB-Red Feather Lakes Business zoning districts and those uses approved through minor special review, special review or special exception where there is a retail component to the original application and any nonconforming retail uses that are expanded pursuant to Section 4.8.10.  Any outdoor display that is moved inside when the business is closed would be permitted by right as long as it meets all the other criteria.  Outdoor display that stays outdoors when the business is closed would have to be approved through an appeal to the county commissioners (the code already requires this, see Section 4.3.10.J.5).  When items are left outside when the business is not open the use can be categorized as outdoor storage.  As noted above, outdoor storage should be limited to those zoning districts where outdoor storage has traditionally occurred.

4.3.10.J  Accessory Outdoor Display and Sales.   The outdoor display of merchandise for sale and which outdoor display is clearly secondary and incidental to the principal use of the property.

1.  The accessory outdoor display area must be outside any parking, traffic circulation, right of way and/or landscaping area that serves the site.

2.  The accessory outdoor display area must be outside the sight triangle at any intersection or driveway as determined by the Urban Area Street Standards or the Rural Area Road Standards.

3.  The accessory outdoor display area cannot be any larger than the square footage of the principal building on the lot.

4.  Accessory outdoor display areas must be effectively screened from any adjacent property zoned to allow residential uses (See Section 8.5, Landscaping).

5.  Accessory outdoor display and sales items are displayed outdoors only when the principal use is open for business.

6.  Accessory outdoor display and sales is permitted only in the T-Tourist, B-Business, C-Commercial, I-Industrial and RFLB Red Feather Lakes Business zoning districts or in conjunction with any use that is approved through the Minor Special Review, Special Review or Special Exception processes when the display and sales is specifically approved as part of the application or where the display and sales is specifically approved as part of the expansion of a nonconforming retail use pursuant to Section 4.8.10 or the accessory outdoor display and sales is specifically approved as part of a PD, Planned Development zoning district.

 

Chair Rennels opened the meeting to public comment; seeing none, public comment was closed.  Brief discussion ensued regarding the meaning of commercial purposes and clarifying certain sections with bullets to make them more user-friendly (which will be accomplished for the published version).

Commissioner Gibson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the proposed code amendments as recommended by the Planning Commission and staff.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

7.  ADOPTION OF NPDES ILLICIT DISCHARGE ORDINANCE: Mark Peterson and Scott Cornell explained that this is a request to adopt the proposed Stormwater Quality Ordinance (also referred to as the Illicit Discharge Ordinance).

 

The National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program is a national standard that regulates stormwater quality.  Each local entity is permitted by the state to administer the program.  The local entity’s permit (in this case Larimer County’s) requires adherence to six minimum ‘measures’ or areas of required compliance.    Those measures are: 

1.   Providing public education about the importance of discharge elimination

2.   Support for public participation by encouraging dialogue between government and individuals / businesses

3.   Utilization of ‘good housekeeping’ measures for internal local entity projects and policies

4.   Administering policies that minimize construction site runoff

5.   Overseeing post construction stormwater facility maintenance

6.   Focus on minimizing illicit discharges. 

 

The NPDES program has been in place for years.  Compliance for the construction related measures (#4 and #5) is enforced through the Larimer County Land Use Code and significant offenders are pursued through the civil process.  Authority to pursue illicit discharge violations (#6) has recently been enhanced via a new ordinance required by the state.   

 

In order to be in full compliance with the permit requirements, Larimer County needs to establish enforcement capabilities to address recurring offenses, or offenses of immediate concern to public health, safety and/or welfare of prohibited discharge into the stormwater system.

 

County Engineering staff has created a proposed Stormwater Quality Ordinance, (applicable in unincorporated Larimer County) to facilitate enforcement of our Stormwater Management Plan to the “maximum extent practicable.”  The proposed ordinance was provided to the Commissioners for review and is available through the County Engineering Department. 

 

Other entities (including Fort Collins, Loveland, Berthoud, and other Front Range counties) have all either passed a similar ordinance or are in the process of doing so.

 

Larimer County has had a focus on education regarding stormwater quality for many years, and the primary focus of the entire NPDES program continues to be on public outreach and education. 

 

Throughout the Fall of 2007, as County staff moved through the process of recommending adoption of a stormwater quality ordinance that addresses illicit discharges, an additional concentrated public outreach program was completed.  The intent of this effort was to actively reach out to Larimer County citizens in an effort to continue the public education and participation portions of the program, and to provide supplemental information regarding the proposed ordinance and its implications/impacts for the public.

 

The core messages conveyed during this outreach plan included the facts that: 

§    Protection of water and stormwater quality is important and can only be accomplished through a comprehensive, collaborative effort that includes both governmental entities and individuals. 

§    A process of education provided by local entities, a gained common understanding, and committed participation by local entities and individuals are the best approach toward success.  

§    Recurring lack of compliance of local ordinances and/or state and federal requirements will be addressed through newly enhanced civil and criminal enforcement authority. 

 

The outreach effort included the following methods of communication:  

§    Web-based information;

§    Direct postcard mailings to 3,500 county businesses;

§    Two separate press releases sent to about 40 entities;

§    Local newspaper feature stories in the Coloradoan, Reporter Herald, North 40, Fossil Creek Currant, Fort Collins Now, and Northern Colorado Business Report

§    Nine newspaper ads; and

§    Three public open houses (Estes Park, Berthoud, and Fort Collins). 

 

Feedback from the pubic was welcomed through the website (web-based survey), via phone and/or email, and from comment sheets at the open houses.  The level of interest has generally been low, with many residents/businesses assuming that such an ordinance already exists (as it does in Loveland, Fort Collins, and other communities).  Of those citizens that provided comments, all but one expressed support for the ordinance.   

 

Staff has worked through the details and completed refinements of the ordinance language with both the County Attorney and the Board of County Commissioners at two worksessions.  

 

The first reading of the Larimer County Stormwater Quality Ordinance occurred at a Board of County Commissioners Administrative Matters meeting on November 6th, at which time the BOCC voted to move forward in the adoption process toward this public hearing.  If the Board of County Commissioners votes to adopt the ordinance, it would become effective 30 days after this hearing. 

 

Public Works finds that the vast majority and focus of the NPDES program will remain on education, outreach and prevention.  However, in order to fully implement the plan, be in compliance with permit regulations, and have a truly effective program, enforcement capabilities through this ordinance are an important last resort to address recurring offenses in areas impacting public health, safety, and welfare.   Public Works recommends that the proposed Stormwater Quality Ordinance (also referred to as the Illicit Discharge Ordinance) be adopted. 

 

Brief discussion ensued regarding the budget for this issue; how compliance would be policed; the way the ordinance is written, as compared to how the Land Use Code is written; and the reason full compliance with the NPDES is desired.  Chair Rennels requested that staff outline the actual ordinance.  Mr. Peterson gave a very brief overview of the fifteen sections of the ordinance.

 

Chair Rennels opened the meeting for public comment; seeing none, public comment was closed.

Commissioner Eubanks moved that the Board of County Commissioners adopt the proposed Larimer County Stormwater Quality Ordinance.

Dick Hughes presented documents and a letter explaining the circumstances surrounding the vacation of the road parallel to Rainbow Drive.  He stated that the process was done in proper fashion and not in a hurry; he also noted that there is no need to build an additional road parallel to the one already in use, as Rainbow Lane is a perfectly acceptable rural road.   Ann Marie and Jean McGee both read letters opposing the condemnation and extension of North Shore Drive.  They both agreed that Rainbow Lane is perfectly suited for the traffic in their area.

6. REVISIONS TO HUMAN RESOURCES POLICY AND PROCEDURE 331.6B, BENEFITS:  Mr. Gamlin proposed updating the Sick Leave Use section of Human Resources Policy and Procedure 331.6B, to clarify that an Appointing Authority or designee may place an employee on sick leave, or another appropriate leave status, if the employee is sick, injured, or a risk to infection to co-workers or customers.  The commissioners had some concern that an Appointing Authority might not be qualified to determine whether or not an employee is sick enough to be sent home.  Some discussion ensued, and Mr. Gamlin will re-write a portion of the procedure to better address this concern. 

 

7.  REVISIONS TO LARIMER COUNTY POLICY AND PROCEDURES 331.5E.H, MOVING TO A SALARY RANGE WITH A LOWER MAXIMUM RATE:  Ms. Reed stated that currently, if an employee’s job changes due to a reclassification or reorganization and they are moved to a salary range with a lower maximum rate than their current salary range; and their current salary is higher than that new salary range maximum, then the practice has always been to freeze the employee’s salary until the maximum range of the new salary catches-up to the employees current salary.    Ms. Reed presented examples of a “step-down” process to adjust an employee’s salary with a maximum time limit of one-year, and she reviewed this with the commissioners.  Finally, Ms. Reed stated that any employee, whose salary has already been frozen, would be “grandfathered in” and they would not be subject to the changes in this policy.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Eubanks moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve changes made to Larimer County Policy and Procedure 331.5E.H: Moving to a Salary Range with a Lower Maximum Rate.

8.  REVISIONS TO LARIMER COUNTY POLICY AND PROCEDURE 417, CUSTOMER SERVICE POLICY:  Ms. Reed explained that the Senior Management Team has drafted proposed changes to the Customer Service Policy that clarify the maximum allowable monetary bonuses that can be awarded, as being $500 per employee.  She noted that it also defines what an “unusually high level of customer relations, skill and judgment” is.   Ms. Reed explained that this action will still respect the autonomy of elected officials in their constitutional role to manage the budgeted funds allocated to them; however, it also respects the Board of County Commissioners’ constitutional responsibility for the allocation of funds.  It also increases the public transparency regarding justification of the award, and it insures adequate flexibility for managers to recognize and reward employees as simply as possible.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Gibson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the changes made to Larimer County Policy and Procedure 417: Customer Service Policy.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

9.  ADMINISTRATIVE POLICY AND PROCEDURE 340.1A, WIRELESS COMMUNICATION POLICY:  Mr. Paratore presented Administrative Policy and Procedure 340.1A; Wireless Communication Policy, and explained that the policy was written to comply with IRS Regulations and to streamline the business processes for accounting staff.  He noted that there are 3 options within the policy for that allow for Departments to manage their Departmental Business Cell Phones.  The Board briefly discussed the options with Mr. Paratore.  Commissioner Gibson was concerned with the stipend and how would be allowed for elected officials who’s salaries are dictated by statute.  Mr. Lancaster stated that the county attorney would be able to answer this question during legal matters.   Mr. Paratore explained that it would be necessary to adopt the policy in order to comply with IRS regulations.

Commissioner Gibson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve Policy and Procedure 340.1A, regarding the use and cost of wireless communication devices for County business, that is consistent with IRS regulations and authorize the County Manager to sign the same.

10.  FORT COLLINS HOUSING AUTHORITY CONTRACT FOR RE-ENTRY PROGRAM TRANSITIONAL HOUSING:   Ms. Snell and Mr. Guest presented a contract with the Fort Collins Housing Authority for use in the Re-entry Program for transitional housing for inmates leaving the Detention Center.  Ms. Snell explained that this would provide inmates returning to the community a stable environment until they are able to obtain more permanent housing.  She also noted that offenders would be assigned a case manager to assist them with goals such as maintaining sobriety, obtaining employment, and other life skills.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Eubanks moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Master Lease to formally contract with the Fort Collins Housing Authority for the initial phase of transitional housing with 2 units to start the project.

11. SAIL AND SADDLE CLUB LICENSE RENEWAL:  Mr. Buffington explained that the current lease with the Sail & Saddle Incorporated recreation club at Horsetooth Reservoir County Park expires on December 31, 2007.  He noted that staff has been working with the club member leadership for the last six months to develop a renewal of the license.  Mr. Buffington proposed that the license be renewed for a period of five years beginning January 1, 2008, and that the revenue derived from this contract would start at $5000, and increase $1000 each year until a maximum of $9000 is reached at the year 2012.

12.  EXPENDITURE TO DESIGN POUDRE RIVER TRAIL UNDERPASS:  Ms. Cameron explained that an underpass is needed to connect the Poudre River Trail under State Highway 392 to the River Bluffs Open Space managed by the Larimer County Open Lands Department.  Mr. Boring noted that the anticipated cost of the design is $150,000, and the Town of Windsor has secured a $120,000 federal grant to pay for 80% of the design.  The remaining matching funds would be split between the Town of Windsor and the Open Lands Department. 

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Eubanks moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the expenditure of $15,000 from the Help Preserve Open Space fund on the design of the 392 trail underpass.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

13.  WORKSESSION:    Discussion ensued regarding how the commissioners would choose which boards and committees they will serve on in 2008.  The commissioners felt that they would be able to decide this amongst themselves and final action regarding this matter will occur at the January 3, 2008, Administrative Matters meeting.

Finally, the Board directed Mr. Gluckman to draft a letter and ask why Senator Allard did not vote in favor of the Payment in Lieu of Taxes measure, as this is something beneficial for Larimer County

 

14.  COMMISSIONER REPORTS:  The Board reviewed their activities at events during the past week.

 

15.  LEGAL MATTERS:  Mr. Lafferty reported on the research he has conducted regarding Rainbow Lane, and concluded that a Title Company should be hired to present a formal report on the actions that occurred in vacating the road.  The Board noted that they would authorize the expenditure of $1000 from the Commissioners’ Special Projects Fund in order to pay for the formal title search.

 

Some discussion ensued regarding a contract that the Sheriff entered into with the Bureau of Reclamation back in 2001, and the problem being that the Sheriff did not have signature authority for the amount of the contract.  Mr. Hass stated that it is a legal contract, as long as the Board has amended the budget to reflect the amount stated in the contract, and the Sheriff is performing the duties outlined in the contract.  Mr. Lancaster will bring back a resolution to ratify the existing contract with the Chair’s signature, so that it conforms to county policy.  

 

Mr. Lancaster asked Mr. Hass for his opinion regarding whether or not an elected official could be awarded a stipend for their wireless devices, due to the fact that their salaries are set by law.  Mr. Hass stated that this could be treated the same as expenses for travel 

 

At this time, the Board went into Executive Session for personnel matters (Tape 153).
