MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

 

MONDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2019.

 

LAND USE HEARING

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 3:00 p.m., with Rob Helmick, Principal Planner. Chair Donnelly presided. Commissioner Johnson and Commissioner Kefalas were present. Also present were: Lesli Ellis, Community Development Director; Samantha Mott, Community Development; Linda Hoffman, County Manager; Chris Ashby and Diana Frick, Fairgrounds at the Ranch; Katie Gray, Engineering; Lea Schneider, Health Department; Laurie Kadrich, Public Works; Jeannine Haag and Frank Haug, County Attorney’s Office; and Deirdre O’Neill, Deputy Clerk.

 

Chair Donnelly 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.          AMENDED PLAT OF TRACTS A & D OF THE CREED EXEMPTION AND BREWSTER BOUNDARY LINE ADJUSTMENT, FILE #19-LAND3911: This combined Amended Plat and Boundary Line Adjustment is regarding Tracts A and D of the Creed Exemption and a metes and bounds parcel to the north.  The purpose of this Amended Plat is to reconfigure the lot line of the northern parcel to line up with a fence line and then to adjust the lot lines of Tract A to keep the lot size the same.  No easements or rights-of-way are being vacated in conjunction with this request.

 

The Amended Plat process is required when the property lines of an approved land division are amended, and the Boundary Line Adjustment process is used to adjust the property lines of a metes and bounds parcel. The Board of County Commissioners approves amendments to approved Exemption lots. The Boundary Line Adjustment process is an administrative process.  Since this plat involve both a platted lot and a metes and bounds parcel, both the Amended Plat process and the Boundary Line Adjustment process are both required.

 

The Larimer County Land Use Code (Section 5.7.3) allows for the approval of an Amended Plat if the following review criteria are met:

 

            A.        No additional lots will be created by the Amended Plat. There are currently three                               existing parcels.  The Amended Plat and Boundary Line Adjustment will adjust the                            boundary between the three parcels with no additional lots being created.

 

            B.         The resultant lots will meet the required minimum lot size of the applicable zoning                            district and the lot dimension ratio required by subsection 8.14.1.H. If any of the lots                        are nonconforming with respect to the minimum lot size or the lot dimension ratio,                                the amended plat must not increase the nonconformity.  The minimum lot size in the                     O-Open zoning district is 10-acres.  The lots are currently 123.7-acres, 42.9-acres and                     0.9-acres in size.  Two of the three resultant lots meet the minimum lot size                                                requirement as the resultant lots will be approximately 126.6-acres, 41.9-acres in size.              One lot will not meet the minimum lot size requirement, but it is not increasing the                          nonconformity as the resultant lot size will be the same as the original lot size of 0.9                                acres.  Currently the lots meet the requirements of subsection 8.14.1.H, regarding lot                                dimension ratio of depth-to-width ratio of 3-to-1 and a width-to-depth ratio of 1.5-to-                   1, and the resulting lots will meet this requirement as well.

 

            C.         The Amended Plat will not create a nonconforming setback for any existing building.                                    The amended plat will not create a nonconforming setback for any of the existing                              buildings.

 

            D.        The resultant lots will meet the requirements of subsection 8.14.1.I.  Lots cannot be                          divided by a municipal or county boundary line, road, alley, or another lot. The                                  Amended Plat will not create a lot that is divided by a municipal or county boundary                         line, road, alley, or another lot.

 

            E.        The Amended Plat will not adversely affect access, drainage or utility easements or                            rights-of-way serving the property or other properties in the area; and no easements                          or rights-of-way are proposed to be vacated with this request. The Amended Plat will                not adversely affect access, drainage or utility easements or rights-of-way serving the                                 property or other properties in the area.

 

            F.         Any covenants, deed restrictions or other conditions of approval that apply to the                             original lots must also apply to the resultant lots and be noted on the final plat, except                       those changes to a condition or note on a plat that are approved with this application.                    The county commissioners shall consider the original reason or circumstance for a                                   condition or note on a plat when approving a change. No changes to any conditions                                   or note on the plat are proposed with this request.  Any covenants, deed restrictions                         or other conditions of approval that apply to the original lot will still apply.

 

The following County departments reviewed the Amended Plat and Boundary Line Adjustment and had no concerns: Engineering, Health and the Environment and Addressing.  The Assessor’s Office noted that the title of the plat should be revised to include the correct file number. Additionally, the Surveyor’s Office indicates that one of the arc lengths for the curve needs to be corrected. 

 

The Development Services Team recommends Approval of the Amended of Tracts A & D of the Creed Exemption and Brewster Boundary Line Adjustment, File #19-LAND3911, subject to the following condition(s) and authorization for the chairman to sign the plat when the conditions are met, and the plat is presented for signature:

 

            A.        All conditions of approval shall be met, and the Final Plat recorded by June 16, 2020,                        or this approval shall be null and void.

 

            B.         Prior to the recordation of the Final Plat the applicant shall make the technical                                  correction required by the Land Surveyor of the Larimer County Engineering                                    Department.

 

            C.         Prior to recordation of the Final Plat revise the plat to include a signature block for all                       lien holders.

 

            D.        The resultant lots are subject to any and all covenants, deed restrictions, or other                               conditions that apply to the original lots.

 

            E.        Prior to recordation of the Final Plat revise the title of the plat in the title, Certification                     of Ownership and Dedication, and the Surveyor’s Certificate by deleting ‘and a portion                     of.

4.         AMENDMENT TO THE RANCH MASTER PLAN: In 2017, Larimer County voters approved a 20-year extension of a 0.15 percent sales tax (15 cents per $100 spent) to fund continued improvements to The Ranch based on the vision outlined within a Master Plan completed earlier that year. A project leadership team made up of industry and subject matter experts and local stakeholders was formed to identify campus improvement options through a formal Implementation Strategy. This strategy was designed to allocate the voter-approved sales tax funds in a manner that protects the long-term future of The Ranch and its mission, while providing the greatest community benefit and generating the highest return on the County’s investment. As a result of extensive surveying, collaboration, outreach, benchmarking, data and market analysis, and quality management programs, an Implementation Plan has been developed that goes to support an Amended Master Plan. The Ranch Fairgrounds and Events Complex staff is recommending that the BOCC recommends adoption of The Ranch Master Plan, as amended to the Planning Commission.

 

The Strategic Implementation Plan is designed to allocate the voter-approved sales tax funds in a manner that protects the long-term future of The Ranch and its mission, while providing the greatest community benefit and generates the highest return on the County’s investment.

 

Based on the results of the research, outreach and collaborative process associated with the Strategic Implementation Planning effort led by the Project Leadership team and the Project Consulting team, the following projects have been identified and are recommended for the Amended Master Plan:

 

            1.         Infrastructure Improvements

            2.         Youth and Community Development

            3.         Equine and Livestock facility expansion

            4.         New exhibition center

            5.         New full-service hotel

            6.         New recreational sports complex

            7.         New entertainment center

 

Laurie Kadrich, Public Works presented the Board with an overview of the project. Ms. Kadrich went over the facility plan including The New Exhibition Center, Recreational Sports Complex, Entertainment Arena, Equine Event Arena, Expanded/Renovated Budweiser Event Center, Floor Events, Amateur Sports, Aquatic Uses, 4-H, New Trade Show facility, Outdoor Arenas and presented concept drawings of the proposed site plan.

 

Ms. Kadrich went into detail on the Recreation Sports complex mentioning the need for a 50-meter competition pool with a 25-yard warm-up pool, training areas, concessions, and multiple locker rooms to accommodate multiple teams simultaneously. She also spoke of the expanded Equine and Livestock 70,000 square foot Clear Span Barn and explained the estimates tax revenue funding.

 

Ms. Kadrich also spoke about the New Trade Show Facility and explained that it will be a multipurpose space that would include traditional shows as well as youth and community events and sports tournaments.

 

Ms. Kadrich explained the proposed Budweiser Event Center Improvements including expanding the main entrance to include a larger vestibule and accessible box office, add a general admission club space above the current Budweiser balcony and expand the west side of the building to add a locker room, storage and club spaces.

 

There was some discussion among the Board and staff related to parking, transportation and landscaping and the enthusiasm for the indoor riding area for 4-H kids.

 

Chair Donnelly opened the hearing for public comment.

The following members of the public addressed the Board: Martin Linda and Kerri Rollins, LC Extension Office Director.

6.          RESOLUTION RESTRICTING TRACTOR TRAILER TRAFFIC ON COUNTRY CLUB ROAD (LCR50E): Operation of tractor trailers on Country Club Road (LCR 50E) creates problematic conditions due to limited turning radii and constrained intersection geometric conditions at the intersection of Country Club Road and the entrance to the Fort Collins Country Club. Similar

problems exist for tractor trailers turning from State Highway 1, eastbound onto Country Club Road. Tractor trailers generally cannot make these turns without going into the opposite lanes of traffic which has caused traffic backups and/or situations where vehicles in the opposite lane have had to back up to allow a tractor trailer to make the turn. Country Club Road is functionally classified as a minor collector and tractor trailer traffic is more appropriately conveyed on state highways or city and county arterial roadways.

 

A temporary truck length restriction was put in place earlier in 2019 and this resolution, if adopted,

would continue truck restrictions based on a vehicle classification type of tractor trailer. Local deliveries to businesses or residences being accessed off Country Club Road would be exempted.

Mark Peterson and Brian Fraaken, Engineering Department, presented the Board an overview of the proposal. They are requesting the Board  consider adoption of a resolution prohibiting tractor trailers from using Country Club Road across the two-mile length extending from Turnberry Road on the east to State Highway 1 on the west. They believe that this would reduce the number of tractor trailers from using Country Club Road, reducing noise and potentially improving safety at the intersections of Country Club Road/entrance to Fort Collins County Club, where tractor trailers have difficulty turning.

 

Tractor trailers will need to find alternate routes which are generally Douglas Road to the north or Vine or State Highway 14 to the south.

 

There was some discussion among the Board and Staff about major/minor collectors, rural function versus urban function, data and modeling and current constraints. Mr. Peterson showed a slide of the proposed “No Semi-Trucks” sign as well as data on truck trips per year.

 

Commissioner Kefalas spoke about this being a public safety issue for pedestrians and bicyclists and his support for this resolution. His concern is for children walking or riding bikes to Tavelli Elementary School. 

 

Chair Donnelly spoke about the danger of Country Club Road with or without trucks. Chair Donnelly explained that County Club Road is a minor roadway and that he feels this decision has far reaching policy implications and that is primarily the reason he is not in support of this motion. In the past the planning staff has made decisions on trucks in the past based on hard evidence, recommendations from CDOT and not based on concerns from citizens.

 

Chair Donnelly explained that he believes in regulations that protect public safety but not impact commerce.

 

Mr. Peterson gave the timeframe of February 15, 2020 to work with CDOT on the placement of signage in their right of way.

 

MOTION

 

Commissioner Kefalas moved that the Board approve a resolution restricting tractor trailer between Turnberry Road and State Highway 1 on Country Club Road, also known as Larimer County Road 50E.

 

Motion carried 2-1, Chair Donnelly dissenting

 

7.         LETTER OF SUPPORT FOR A TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVE PROGRAM GRANT: The Larimer County Engineering Department is planning to submit a TAP grant through a CDOT call for projects that would go towards multimodal improvements in the area of 57th Street and US 287 on the north end of Loveland.

 

This proposed project is a total of 11,750 feet of path, or 2.2 miles, along 57th Street and US 287 on

the north end of Loveland. A Walmart shopping center that includes other retail stores is located on

the northwest corner of the intersection that many residents in this area frequent. A temporary path

on the northwest corner of the US 287 intersection serves as a connection to the retail area but does

not connect two mobile home parks. There are no paths on the west side of US 287 or along 57th Street. The southeast corner of the intersection was recently developed through the City of Loveland with sidewalk along the frontage. The northeast corner has a development application at the City which shows sidewalk along the frontage. A map is attached showing the proposed connections we are proposing to make.

 

These proposed connections will create safer bicycle and pedestrian use between neighborhoods. Currently, limited bicycle and pedestrian facilities exist; causing pedestrians and bicycles to merge with traffic on 57th Street and US 287. Both 57th street and US 287 have high speeds (40+) and high traffic volumes, which leads to the creation of dangerous and uncomfortable conditions for those walking and bicycling on or adjacent to the roads. The addition of the proposed sidewalk segments will create a safer environment to support access to multimodal transportation options in this community.

 

In addition to safer bike and pedestrian usage the proposed segments will also increase connectivity

to recreational, retail, and transit options. Future trail connections to the regional Longview Trail and

Front Range Trail are almost complete, which will be directly connected to one of our proposed segments. Finally, the surrounding neighborhoods will have greater access to transit options as all proposed segments will help to eliminate infrastructure gaps that currently prevent pedestrians to safely connect to regional transit stops that serves both the City of Loveland and FLEX.  Additional letters of support from CDOT, City of Loveland, City of Fort Collins, and Lago Vista Mobile Home Park will also be included with the Final Application.

 

Rusty McDaniel, Engineering, presented the Board for the request of the letter of support for the grant.

 

Mr. McDaniel explained that the project contains 10 different segments for a total of two miles of sidewalk for the non-motorized path at 57th Street and US Highway 287. There are currently no sidewalls along 57th Street, the southwest side of US 287, or on the northeast side of US 287. The bus stops do not have sidewalk connections and the southern stop does not have a shelter. Constructing ADA compliant sidewalks in this area will allow greater access to the retail area and bus stops that would improve mobility and safety.

 

The Commissioners felt that this is important public safety issue and expressed their gratitude to the Engineering Department.

 

MOTION

 

Commissioner Johnson moved that the Board approve the letter of support for the Transportation Alternative Program grant.
