Request:    This request is for a setback Variance to allow a proposed garage to be 15 feet from the center of the existing drainage way to the north rather than the required 100 feet as stated in Section 4.9.2.A of the Larimer County Land Use Code. A base flood elevation and high water evaluation of the existing drainage way, performed by a licensed engineer, will be required as part of this Variance.

Location:  Located in the upper northwest quarter of Section 35, Township 6 North, Range 71 West in the Cedar Springs Estates; southeast of Snowtop Drive.

Applicant:  Phil Lapp - 1201 E Mulberry Street, Fort Collins CO 80524

Owner:  Gloria Smith & Jerold Alan Meyer - 55345 Township Rd 169, Fresno, Ohio


Development Services Team Recommendation:  The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Meyer/Smith Variance, File #15-BOA1049, subject to the following conditions:


1.   Failure to comply with any conditions of the Variance approval may result in reconsideration of the use and possible revocation of the approval by the Board of Adjustment.

2.   All future additions or buildings that would be within setbacks as defined in the Land Use Code must go through the proper county review and planning process prior to construction.

3.   This approval shall automatically expire in one year unless the applicant takes affirmative action consistent with this approval.

4.   After the applicant applies for a building permit but prior to foundation pour, the Larimer County Building Department must be provided with a written certification by a Colorado Licensed Land surveyor that the proposed structure is located where shown on the Larimer County approved Plot Plan for this development.

5.   According to Clint Jones in the Engineering Department, “the applicant shall hire a Professional Engineer to confirm that the location and lowest opening of the proposed new structure is set above the 100-year flood limits to minimize potential injury and structural damage in a major flood event.”
