LAND USE HEARING

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 3:00 p.m. with Matt Lafferty, Principal Planner. Chair Gaiter presided and Commissioner Donnelly was present. Also present were:  Traci Shambo, Engineering Department; Brenda Gimeson, Planning Department; Jeannine Haag, County Attorney’s Office; and Gael Cookman, Deputy Clerk.

 

Chair Gaiter opened the hearing with the Pledge of Allegiance.

 

Chair Gaiter then explained that the following item was on the consent agenda, and would not be discussed unless requested by the Board, staff, or members of the audience:

 

1.         HORSETOOTH LAKE ESTATES LOTS 165-167 LOT CONSOLIDATION, FILE #12-S3121:  This is a request to combine three adjacent lots, Lots 165, 166, and 167, Horsetooth Lake Estates, into one lot.  All of the lots access Arrowhead Lane and all are owned by the same person.  There is currently one existing residence on the properties. 

 

The following agencies have stated that they have no objections to this proposal: The Larimer County Department of Health and Environment, the County Engineering Department, and the Larimer County Addressing Coordinator.  The Assessor’s office indicated the new legal description for the resultant lot.

 

The proposed Horsetooth Lake Estates Lot Consolidation for Lots 165, 166, and 167 will not adversely affect any neighboring properties or any County agency.  The Lot Consolidation will not result in any additional lots and no other services will be affected.  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 the Horsetooth Lake Estates Lots 165, 166, and 167, file # 12-S3121, subject to the following conditions:

 

1.   All conditions shall be met and the final resolution of the County Commissioners recorded by February 27, 2013, 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.    The reconfiguration of the lots lines shall be finalized at such time when the findings and resolution of the County Commissioners is recorded.

Discussion then ensued regarding noise complaints related to the Swing Station Tavern.  Applicant Heather Alhause explained that they do have an outdoor stage, and a decibel meter that they use every hour to check noise levels’; she admitted to sometimes exceeding the decibel level with the outdoor music. However, Ms. Alhause stated that she has been in touch with the Sheriff’s Department and that it is one person that keeps complaining (22 calls in a four month period from the same person), and for now she has decided to move everything indoors.   Commissioner Johnson suggested that Ms. Alhause meet with the LaPorte Planning Advisory Committee for some helpful ideas on how to best manage this situation within their community. The Board agreed to issue the temporary permit and allow the transfer to proceed without requiring a public hearing.
