MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

 

 

Monday, February 2, 2015

 

LAND USE HEARING

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 3:00 p.m. with Matt Lafferty, Principal Planner. Chair Pro-tem Johnson presided and Commissioner Donnelly was present. Also present were: Doug Ryan, Health and Environment Department; Clint Jones, Engineering Department; Jeannine Haag, County Attorney’s Office; and Dana Polley, Deputy Clerk.

 

Chair Pro-tem Johnson opened the hearing with the Pledge of Allegiance and noted that the following items were on the consent agenda and would not be discussed unless requested to do so by the Board, staff, or members of the audience:

 

1.         GUESWEL EXEMPTION AMENDED PLAT AND BOUNDARY LINE AGREEMENT, FILE #14-S3270:   This is a request for an amended plat of the Gueswel Exemption to adjust the boundary and add approximately 4 acres from a neighboring metes and bounds parcel. The applicant is concurrently doing a Boundary Line Adjustment with that existing legal lot which is located to the northeast of this property.  No new parcels or lots are being created with this amendment.

 

Based on the review criteria, staff finds that the proposed amended plat will not adversely affect any neighboring properties or any County agency. The amended plat will not result in any additional lots.  Staff finds that with the conditions as listed below, the request meets the requirements of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Amended Plat of Lot 1, amended plat of the Gueswel Exemption, The Gueswel-Sears Boundary Line Adjustment and Gueswel-Scharf-Sears Boundary Line Adjustment and the Gueswel-Rusty Buffalo Campground P3, LLC Boundary Line Adjustment, file #14-S3270, 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.   All conditions of approval shall be met and the Final Plat recorded by August 2, 2015, or this approval shall be null and void.

 

2.   The reconfiguration of the lots lines shall be finalized at such time when the plat and Findings and Resolution of the County Commissioners are recorded.

 

2.         JENSEN MINOR LAND DIVISION, FILE #14-S3271:   This is a request for a Minor Land Division (MLD) to divide a 10.97 acre parcel into 2 lots; one with an existing residence and accessory buildings, and the other for the City of Fort Collins Open Space.  Also, an appeal to the minimum lot size requirements for the O-Open zoning district of the Larimer County Land Use Code Section 4.1.5.B.1. The Jensen property is adjacent to the Magpie Meander Natural Area. The Jensens approached the city in early 2014 with an offer to sell the city a portion of their property. The MLD will create a parcel to be added to the city’s public open space.  The open space parcel will not be eligible for a residential building permit.  The remaining parcel will continue to be owned and occupied by the Jensens.

 

Based on the review criteria, staff recommends approval of the Jensen Minor Land Division, file #14-S3271 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.   All conditions of approval shall be met and the final plat recorded by August 2, 2015, or this approval shall be null and void.

 

2.   The final plat shall include the Right-of-Way and utility/drainage easement dedications as noted in the memo from Clint Jones, Development Services Engineer, and dated January 7, 2015.

 

3.   Prior to the recordation of the final plat the application shall make the technical corrections as identified in the email dated 1/13/2015 from Brian Helminiak, Land Surveyor of the Larimer County Engineering Department.

 

4.   Prior to the recordation of the final plat the plat shall be revised to label Lot 2 as “non-buildable”.
