MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

 

 

Monday, December 14, 2009

 

 

LAND USE HEARING

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 3:00 p.m. with Matt Lafferty, Principal Planner. Chair Rennels presided and Commissioners Donnelly and Johnson were present. Also present were:  Eric Tracy, Engineering Department; Doug Ryan, Environmental Health Department; Toby Stauffer, Karin Madson, and Sean Wheeler, Planning Department; Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney; and Melissa Lohry.

 

Chair Rennels opened the hearing 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.

 

1.         LOVELAND TALL PINES APPEAL:  Mr. Lafferty informed the Board that the applicant requested this item be tabled until January 25, 2009, so that the applicant may be present.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Johnson moved that the Board of County Commissioners table the Loveland Tall Pines Appeal until January 25, 2009.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

Chair Rennels explained that the following items were on today’s consent agenda and would not be discussed unless requested by the Board, staff, or members of the audience:

 

2.         PLYMOUTH ROAD RIGHT-OF-WAY AND UTILITY EASEMENT VACATION, FILE #09-S2920:   This is a request to vacate a right-of-way and utility easement connecting the Taft Canyon Subdivision with the Kathy Fromme Open Space. The applicants seek approval to vacate a section of platted right-of-way and a utility easement in the Taft Canyon Subdivision.  The site is in a residential neighborhood just north of the Kathy Fromme Open Space area, south of Fort Collins. The right-of-way and easement provide connectivity to the Seven Springs Ranch subdivision, located south of Taft Canyon. That project, however, was abandoned and the City of Fort Collins has obtained the property, which they added to the Kathy Fromme Open Space area. With development of the future subdivision no longer a realistic possibility, the right-of-way and utility easement are no longer needed. The Taft Canyon Subdivision Homeowners Association has expressed an interest in adding landscape improvements to the site, thus improving the aesthetic appearance of the access to the open space area. The proposed improvements would not include additional parking or other amenities. The adjoining property owners, Sivea and Scott Key, also wish to use the additional area to address drainage issues on their lot and make landscaping improvements. Because of the configuration of the site and adjoining properties, the homeowners association and the Key family have agreed to an uneven division of the right-of-way area and to provide for continued pedestrian access to the open space area, and the City supports the request. Should the request be approved, the applicant has agreed to provide an amended plat for signature by the Chair.

 

Staff recommends approval of the Plymouth Road Right-of-Way and Utility Easement vacation, file #09-S2920, subject to the following conditions (and authorization for the Chair to sign the plat when the conditions are met and the plat is presented for signature):

 

1.    All conditions of approval shall be met and the final plat recorded by June 15, 2010, or this approval shall be null and void.

 

2.    Prior to the recordation of the final plat the applicant shall make the technical corrections as may be required by Larimer County Engineering Department following their review and approval of the amended plat.

           

 

3.         MCCONNELL REZONING, FILE #09-Z1760:   This is a request to rezone a 2.15-acre property from O-Open to PD-Planned Development to accommodate commercial uses on the property. The applicant has indicated that commercial uses have been present on the site since 1946. Planning Department records indicate that a Special Exception was approved for the property in 1998 to allow for the operation of a flower shop and travel agency. Since the 1998, several other uses have occurred on the property, some with approvals, including used car sales, a computer internet café and a flea market. The last approval was in 2006, which allowed the River Rock Car Company to operate on the site. Notes in Planning Department files indicate that any further changes will require rezoning.

 

The property has two existing structures, one that has primarily been used as a non-residential structure and a second that has been used for primarily residential purposes. Both structures would likely remain, resulting in two primary structures and two primary uses.

 

The LaPorte Area Plan calls for this location to be in the Community Business Center, which  would have a variety of uses including retail, service uses, and professional offices. Existing and proposed uses on this site would be consistent with that category. Proposed plans may also include a coffee shop/café.

 

The subject parcel is located on the north side of West County Road 54G, across from Cache La Poudre School.

 

There are no issues or concerns with this project. This project will eliminate a current non-conformity and rezone the property, making the zoning consistent with existing and proposed uses and the LaPorte Area Plan. The property currently has two existing uses and structures and those uses and structures would remain into the future as long as they are occupied. If the Single-Family Residence is vacant for one year, that use will no longer be a primary use; however the property will still have two primary structures. The PD-Planned Development district will allow two uses and two structures to remain. The proposal meets the review criteria and is compatible with the surrounding uses; therefore, staff recommends approval of the McConnell Rezoning, file #09-Z1760, to rezone the property from O-Open to PD-Planned Development, subject to the following conditions:

 

1.         Future uses or changes to the property shall go through the applicable County Review process, potentially including Planned Land Division, Condo Mapping, and/or Site Plan Review.

 

2.         The Planned Development (PD) zoning for the properties shall be applied to the entire property. The permitted uses, lot building and structure requirements, setbacks and structure height limitations for McConnell PD (Planned Development) shall be as follows:

 

A.        McConnell PD

 

Purpose Statement:

The zoning on this property is based on the LaPorte Area plan and any development on this property should conform to the elements of that plan. The plan calls for the area to be a Community Business Center and Medium Density Residential, and/or Mixed Use Development. This zone district is an interim zoning designation. If the ownership of the structures is split or if additional density, structures or uses other than the existing two structures and uses are added to this property, the proposed development may need to rezone the property and revise the zoning based on an approved development plan. Any rezoning or development of this property would receive a public hearing per current Land Use Code process guidelines.

4.         ADAMS RETAIL SUBDIVISION PRELIMINARY PLAT, FILE #08-S2840:   This is a request for approval to replat the vacant portions of the Adams Bank property, also known as Tract 2-A of the Amended Plat of Tract 2 of Colland Center, and Tract B of Manor Ridge Estates PUD 1st filing, which is located on the southwest corner of Highway 287 and Colland Drive.  The request to replat would result in the creation of three lots, two of which will be for future commercial uses and the third for the existing building (bank).

 

The subject property is commercially zoned and rectangular in shape, with the longest of sides  abutting Highway 287 to the west and the Manor Ridge Estates residential development to the east.  The narrower sides of the property are situated adjacent to Colland Drive to the north and open space in the Manor Ridge Estates PUD to the south. The subject property is relatively flat with drainage directed to the northeast corner of the site.

 

Access to the property is from Highway 287 at the southwest corner of the site and from Colland Drive at the northeast corner of the property. An existing drainage detention basin is located on the eastern boundaries of the property with historic releases of storm water detention to the north. Lot 1 of the subject request contains an existing  8398 square foot building that is occupied by Adams Bank and Trust.

 

Historically the use of this property was an indoor/outdoor entertainment facility, Alpine Family Fun Center, which use included numerous outdoor activities such as miniature golf and go-carts.  Upon closure of the entertainment facility, Adams Bank & Trust acquired the site and removed the outdoor entertainment facilities as well as several accessory buildings used for indoor entertainment. The main building was renovated into a bank and site improvements such as parking, landscaping, and drainage were reviewed, approved and constructed through the Site Plan Review process.

 

Unlike typical residential subdivision applications and many commercial subdivision applications, this application does not include a significant amount of on and off-site improvements, primarily because the design and intensity of the future commercial facilities is unknown, and because many improvements already; exist on the property. Therefore, once specific uses are proposed on and off-site improvements will be evaluated as part of the County Site Plan Review process. As for this application, definition of the lot parameters, cross easements, availability of utilities, and compatibility are the major focus of the Development Services Team review.

 

The only concern identified is that covenants, easements, and maintenance agreements be integrated into the final plat process to ensure that future development of the properties is unencumbered by lack of such considerations.

 

Staff has found that the proposed rezoning will result in the productive use of the underutilized portions of the existing commercially zoned property and the application adequately addresses the review criteria and standards for this type of development.

 

Staff recommends approval of the Adams Retail Subdivision Preliminary Plat, file #08-S2840, subject to the following condition(s):

 

1.         The final plat shall be consistent with the approved preliminary plan and with the information contained in the Adams Retail Subdivision Preliminary Plat, file# 08-S2840, except as modified by the conditions of approval or agreement of the county and applicant. The applicant shall be subject to all other verbal or written representations and commitments of record for the Adams Bank Subdivision.

 

2.         The applicant will, as part of the final plat application, provide all necessary maintenance agreements, easements and cross access and parking easements for the future uses of the lots.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the consent agenda as published above.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

5.         ROCKY RIDGE ESTATES CONSERVATION DEVELOPMENT PRELIMINARY PLAT TIME EXTENSION, FILE #06-S2535:  This is a request for a two year extension of the preliminary plat approval and request to pay half of the final plat fee at the time it is submitted. The application has been on hold at the request of the applicant since October 8, 2008.

 

The preliminary plat for the Rocky Ridge Conservation Development was approved with conditions by the Board of County Commissioners on July 9, 2007. A final plat application was submitted in October of 2007. The application was incomplete and not sent out for formal referral and review until December 2007. Since that referral, there are a number of outstanding items to be resolved prior to finalization of the final plat. 

 

Due to the present economic situation, the applicant is now requesting that the final plat be returned to him and that the preliminary plat approval be extended for two years beginning Jan 1, 2010. If this request is approved, a new final plat application would be required by January 1, 2012. The applicant has also requested to have a reduced submittal fee of $1800 (one half the current final plat application fee) at the time of final plat re-submittal. The applicant did pay the final plat application fee in 2007; however, a new final plat application will require full staff review. The applicant will also need to submit a written request to withdraw the current final plat application.

 

Staff recommends approval of the Rocky Ridge Estates Conservation Development Preliminary Plat time extension included in file #06-S2535, subject to the following conditions:

 

1.         Prior to January 1, 2010, the applicant shall submit a written request to withdraw the current final plat application. 

 

2.         All conditions outlined in the Findings and Resolution Approving the Rocky Ridge Estates Conservation Development Preliminary Plat and Appeal to Sections 8.14.2.S and 8.14.2.Q shall continue to apply.

 

3.         The final plat for the Rocky Ridge Estates Conservation Development shall be submitted no later that January 1, 2012, or this preliminary plat time extension approval shall automatically expire without a public hearing.

 

4.         At the time of final plat submittal the applicant shall pay an application fee of $1800.00.

 

Chair Rennels opened the hearing to the applicant and Charles Meserlain addressed the Board.  Mr. Meserlain stated that he is in agreement with all of the conditions recommended by staff. 

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Johnson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Rocky Ridge Estates Conservation Development Preliminary Plat Time Extension, file #06-S2535, subject to the conditions above.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

5.         THE GROVES AT LAPORTE PLANNED LAND DIVISION / PLANNED DEVELOPMENT PRELIMINARY PLAT TIME EXTENSION, FILE #05-S2464:   This is a request for an extension of a preliminary plat. In September of 2003, the Development Services team received and processed a Sketch Plan application for The Groves At Laporte Planned Development and Planned Land Division. The preliminary plat for the Development was submitted in July 2005, and was received numerous reviews until January of 2007, when the project came to an apparent impasse regarding roadway, drainage, and irrigation issues.

 

Since January 2007, the application has not received any further review as the applicant has not submitted new information or requested a hearing for a determination on the application. On several occasions since 2007 the Development Services Team has granted one extension of time and earlier this year requested that the applicant either move forward with the project or withdraw the application. Several options were presented to the applicant, including:

 

1.         Withdraw the application and resubmit when the applicant believes that development options are more plausible;

 

2.         Withdraw the application and resubmit within two years without having to apply for a Sketch Plan application and pay half the review fees;

 

3.         Proceed with the application as proposed with unresolved transportation, drainage and irrigation issues; or

 

4.         Request a Time extension from the Board of County Commissioners.

 

Due to outstanding development related issues to be resolved and the present economic situation the applicant is now requesting that the preliminary plat application be extended for one year. 

 

While the economic conditions may warrant a short term extension, the Development Services Team believes this application stalled long before the current crisis due to issues that the applicant either would not resolve or would not pursue as an appeal. Additionally, a substantial amount of time has passed in the review of the materials and changes in staff have occurred, which make it difficult to restart the project review without reviewing the application in its entirety; therefore, the Development Services Team believes that it would be a better approach to withdraw the application and begin a new review when the applicant is ready.

 

Staff recommends denial of The Groves at Laporte Planned Development and Planned Land Division Preliminary Plat Extension, included in file #05-S2464, and further denial of the application as submitted.

 

Chair Rennels opened the hearing to the applicants.  Mr. Meserlain and Chris Kaul addressed the Board and stated that the project has stalled due to the large amount of road work required by the county in relation to the small scale of the proposed project.  Mr. Meserlain stated that it is his intent to stall the project until there is more interest in the area. He also stated that he does not want to withdraw the application and start new because he has already invested a great deal into the project.

 

Commissioner Johnson asked staff why the recommendation for this request differed from the recommendation on the previous request.  Mr. Lafferty stated there were two reasons for the differing recommendations: first, the land use code requires all preliminary plats to move forward to hearing or have continued work conducted within one year of submittal, and this project has been stagnant for a significant period of time; second, the previous request had obtained approval of the preliminary plat, and this request has not received any approval.

 

After some discussion, the Board decided the preliminary plat should not receive a time extension.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Johnson moved that the Board of County Commissioners deny The Groves at Laporte Planned Development and Planned Land Division Preliminary Plat Extension, included in file #05-S2464, and allow the applicant to resubmit the applicant with half of the original submittal fees.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

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

 

 

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2009

 

ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:00 a.m. with Frank Lancaster, County Manager. Chair Rennels presided and Commissioners Donnelly and Johnson were present. Also present were: Marc Engemoen, Mark Peterson, and Martina Wilkinson, Engineering Department; Bob Herrfeld, Fairgrounds and Event Center Director; Russ Legg, Planning Department; George Haas and Jeannine Haag, County Attorney’s Office; and Melissa Lohry Deputy Clerk.

 

1.         PUBLIC COMMENT:  Mr. Lancaster provided the Board and the audience a complete overview of the Boxelder Stormwater Authority’s last meeting, which took place during the previous week. Jim Fry, Paul Westover, Linda Kuhlman, Bill Webster, Neil Haley, Gail Meisner, Lee Tucker, Stan McMahon, Jean Carpenter, Dan Leonhardt, Herb Buckhalter, and L.D. Newman addressed the Board to express their disgust with the Boxelder Stormwater Authority and the fees assessed against the residents of the Boxelder Basin.

 

The most frequent reasons for displeasure were inappropriate and inconsistent conduct of the authority; unfair assessment of fees and issuance of exemptions; and a lack of action to correct problems. Many individuals also stated that all residents of Larimer County should be assessed fees for the planned improvements as the whole county will ultimately benefit from pre-disaster mitigation.                

 

There was also a request for Chair Rennels to recuse herself from voting on the Coal Creek Flood Mitigation Grant Contract due to her recent retirement announcement.

 

Chair Rennels agreed that the actions of the Boxelder Stormwater Authority must improve and assured the audience that the Board has expressed frustration with the authority.

 

Commissioner Johnson agreed with Chair Rennels. He also stated that while some residents may not agree, he believes the planned improvements are valuable and, as proof, he cited Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) decision to award a $2.9 million in grant to help fund the project.

 

Commissioner Donnelly apologized to the audience on behalf of the authority and assured everyone that the Board is working to make all processes more fair and balanced.

 

2.         COAL CREEK MITIGATION GRANT CONTRACT:   Mr. Engemoen, Mr. Peterson, and Ms. Wilkinson addressed the Board to request the Board’s approval to enter a contract with the State of Colorado, Department of Local Affairs, to accept a $2.9 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  Mr. Peterson explained that the Coal Creek Project is the first of three regional stormwater improvements in the Boxelder Basin. The project will convey stormwater flows via the Clark Reservoir Inlet Canal into Clark Lake, providing storage and flood mitigation for more than 100-properties in unincorporated Larimer County and the Town of Wellington. 

 

Commissioner Donnelly asked Mr. Engemoen what would happen if the county chose not to accept the grant money.  Mr. Engemoen stated that the project would still move forward; however, residents in the Boxelder Basin would be annual assessed fees for a longer period of time to cover the cost of the project. 

 

Chair Rennels explained that the previous Board of Commissioners stressed the importance of applying for and receiving as many grants as possible to assure swift completion of the three projects and a reduction in the amount and longevity of fees assessed to residents of the basin.

 

Mr. Engemoen agreed and noted that if the Board chose to turn down the grant money, it may be detrimental to the likelihood of receiving any future grants.  

 

Commissioner Donnelly stated that the Board must do whatever is possible to protect citizens, as well as fulfilling the requirements of the Intergovernmental Agreement.

 

Chair Rennels stated that she would not recuse herself from voting as she will not retire until December 31, 2009, and because she was a member of the Board that originally approved  and initiated the project; therefore, she felt it would be irresponsible to abstain from voting.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Johnson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve entering into a contract with the State of Colorado to accept a Federal Emergency Management Agency, Pre-disaster Mitigation grant to construct the Coal Creek Flood Mitigation Project.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

3.         REVIEW OF THE SCHEDULE FOR THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 21, 2009:   Ms. Hart reviewed the upcoming schedule with the Board.

 

4.         PIPELINE RIGHT-OF-WAY ACQUISITION:   John Munson and Dan Moore, from the City of Greeley, addressed the Board to provide and update on the portion of the Greeley Water Line that is proposed to transect properties in LaPorte. Mr. Moore stated that in their last meeting with the Army Corp. of Engineers, it was decided that a significant amount of the pipeline will require tunneling to avoid disrupting the environment and historic structures.

 

Mr. Moore informed the Board that they hope to obtain all necessary permits within one year and begin construction in the winter of 2011.

 

Chair Rennels thanked Mr. Munson and Mr. Moore for keeping the Board informed of the project’s progress.

 

5.         UPDATE ON THE STATUS OF THE ROOFS AT THE RANCH:   Mr. Herrfeld and Mr. Engemoen addressed the Board to provide an update on the status of repairing the roof of the Exhibition Building at The Ranch, which was damaged by snow during the winter of 2006. Mr. Herrfeld explained that after an in-depth investigation of the damages and restoration options, it was determined that the least expensive remedy is to dismantle the building and reconstruct using the greatest amount of original materials possible. GH Phipps has been hired to complete the dismantling and reconstruction, which will begin as soon as possible. All construction on the Exhibition Building is scheduled to be complete by July 15, 2010, and staff is working diligently to reschedule all events originally slated to take place during that time.

 

Mr. Engemoen also informed the Board that through investigation into the damages to the Exhibition Building, it was discovered that there has also been damage to the Indoor Arena, Pavilions, and the Maintenance Shop. All three buildings will need to undergo repairs; however, it has not been determined when or in what manner those repairs will occur.

 

Mr. Engemoen also ensured the Board that there has been no threat to the safety or well-being of guests to The Ranch, the repairs are only taking place because the county did not receive the quality of buildings for which the county paid. He also assured the Board that the county’s insurance company will pay for the cost to repair the Exhibition Building.

 

Chair Rennels thanked Mr. Herrfeld and Mr. Engemoen for updating the Board on the project’s progress.

 

6.         2010 NATURAL RESOURCES REGULATION CHANGES:   Mr. Buffington and Mr. Rieves addressed the Board and presented the regulation changes for 2010.  Mr. Buffington stated that the changes were made to align the county’s regulations with the state’s regulations and to soften the language of the regulation in order to make them more citizen friendly.

 

The Board reviewed the changes and Chair Rennels asked if training would be conducted on the new regulations and Mr. Buffington assured her new training would be conducted.

 

Finally, Mr. Buffington informed the Board that no motion was needed, the presentation was meant to just be informational.

 

7.         DRAFT LETTER REGARDING INTERGOVERNMENTAL AGREEMENT WITH WELLINGTON:   Mr. Legg presented the Board with a letter to the Town of Wellington regarding the Growth Management Area Zone District. The letter states that the Board feels citizens within the proposed Growth Management Area boundary do not sufficiently understand the issues proposed by the agreement; therefore, it is a disservice to continue with public implementation hearings. If the Town of Wellington wishes to continue working towards and agreement with the county, representatives are instructed to contact the Interim Planning Director, Russ Legg.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Johnson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve a letter to Wellington regarding the Intergovernmental Agreement pertaining the Growth Management Area and authorization for the Chair to sign when the final letter is presented.

 

Motion carried 3-0.
