Chair Gaiter opened the hearing with the Pledge of Allegiance.

 

Chair Gaiter then noted that there are two items on the consent agenda that would not be discussed unless requested to do so by the Board, staff, or members of the audience.  Mr. Lafferty clarified that with regards to the Devries Subdivision Lots 3, 4 & 5 Amended Plat, the intent is to modify the building envelope to be closer to the side lot lines and 50 feet further to the west.  

 

1.     LETITIA LAKES LOTS 7 & 8, BLOCK 5 LOT CONSOLIDATION, FILE #15-S3304:  This is a request combine two adjacent lots, Lots 7 and 8, Block 5, Letitia Lakes Subdivision into one lot.  All lots currently access Walela Lane, and that access will remain.   All lots are owned by the same individuals.  There is currently one single-family residence on the property.  Lots in this subdivision were platted in 1928. 

           

The following agencies have stated that they have no objections to this proposal:

·   The Larimer County Department of Health and Environment 

·   The Larimer County Engineering Department

·   The Larimer County Assessor’s Office

·   The Larimer County Addressing Coordinator

·   The Larimer County Code Compliance Section

 

All other affected utility companies have agreed to the request.  The Division of Water Resources provided no comments.

 

The proposed Letitia Lakes, Lots 7 and 8, Block 5, Lot Consolidation 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.  The staff finds that the request meets the requirements of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Letitia Lake Lot Consolidation for Lots 7 and 8, Block 5 File #15-S3304, subject to the following conditions:

 

1.   All conditions of approval shall be met and the final resolution recorded by November 26, 2015, 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.

 

2.      DEVRIES SUBDIVISION LOTS 3, 4 & 5, AMENDED PLAT, FILE #15-S3305:  This is a request to amend the plat by expanding the platted building envelopes on three lots in this subdivision.  The building envelopes in the Devries Subdivision were platted to create some consistency with lots south along Lonetree Drive.  This proposal would allow expand the envelope to the west and to the north and south to the normal zone setbacks allowing for reasonable location of accessory structures, this will not impact views to the west.   

             

Referrals were provided to the Engineering Department and the Health Department.  Neither agency identified any issues.  No neighbor comments have been received as of the time of this report.  Notice was provided to all neighbors within 500 feet of the site. 

 

This amended plat to allow expansion of the building envelope allows the owners more options on the lot.  This change does not affect the intent of the original platting or the purpose of the original building envelopes.  This change can be implemented through a Findings and Resolution with attached exhibits. 

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Amended Plat of the Devries Subdivision Lots 3, 4 & 5 file #15-S3305.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Johnson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the consent agenda as outlined above.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

The hearing adjourned at 3:05 p.m.
