M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Gaiter moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the consent agenda as amended, and outlined below:

 

2.         DILLMANN APPEAL:  This is a request for an appeal to Section 4.3.10.H.2.c. to allow a detached Accessory Living Area to be 840 square feet rather than the allowed 800 square feet.

 

Applicant is requesting approval of an appeal to allow the detached Accessory Living Area to be 840 square feet rather than the 800 square feet allowed by the Land Use Code.  The ALA regulations allow the accessory unit to be up to 800 square feet or 40% of the main house square footage exclusive of basements and garages.  The proposed accessory living area will be located within an existing barn The Public Site Plan review portion of this application was processed administratively and approved by the Community Development Director on May 5, 2014. This application is for the size appeal only.  The proposed new (main) residence on the property will be 2204 square feet.  The existing home on the property is being demolished so that it can be replaced with a new modular dwelling.  There is also a mobile home on the property that will be removed (this is a condition of approval for the already approved Public Site Plan application).

 

Based on the review criteria staff finds that the proposed appeal, allowing additional square footage to an Accessory Living Area will:

 

    1. Not subvert the purpose of the standard or requirement.

 

    1. Not be detrimental to the public health, safety or property values in the neighborhood.

 

    1. Not result in increased costs to the general public.

 

    1. Be consistent with the intent and purpose of the Code.

 

Therefore, staff recommends approval of the Dillmann Appeal File #14-PSP0058.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Johnson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve tabling item #1, Fox Glade RLUP Amended Plat & Easement Vacation, File #14-S3225 until June 23, 2014, at 3:00 p.m.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

The hearing adjourned at 3:05 p.m.

DECISION FOR ACTION REGARDING THE EMERGENCY FIRE FUND AND CONTRACT WITH THE STATE AND APPROVAL OF LIQUOR LICENSES

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 4:30 p.m. with Linda Hoffmann, County Manager. Chair Donnelly presided and Commissioners Johnson and Gaiter were present. Also present were: Neil Gluckman, Commissioner’s Office; and Dana Polley, Deputy Clerk.

 

Chair Donnelly opened the hearing and explained that this was a special meeting to decide the course of action regarding the emergency fire fund and the contract pending with the State scheduled to be submitted by June 1, 2014.

 

Ms. Hoffmann updated the Board that the suggested language from the State is not acceptable to several counties, so they have decided to push back the deadline for signing this contract. This will allow negotiations and a more acceptable agreement will be brought to the Board in the next couple weeks.

 

Chair Donnelly then mentioned that there are two liquor licenses for issuance and/or approval: temporary license for the Golf Club at Fox Acres – Hotel & Restaurant with Optional Premises – Red Feather Lakes; and a modification of premises for Mountain White Water Descents – Beer and Wine – Fort Collins.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Gaiter moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the liquor licenses listed above.
