Chair Donnelly opened the hearing with the Pledge of Allegiance and noted that the following items is on the consent agenda and would not be discussed unless requested to do so by the Board, Staff, or members of the audience.
1. CRYSTAL LAKES 15TH LOTS 27 & 31 LOT CONSOLIDATION AND EASEMENT VACATION: The owner applicant in this request proposes a consolidation and to vacate the common lot line 20-foot utility easement on the lots. This is family property that they intend to develop with a single cabin. The building site is on the common line which is the rationale for the consolidation to reduce tax burden and Association dues to Crystal Lakes.
The Larimer County Land Use Code (Section 5.7.3) allows for the approval of a lot consolidation if the following review criteria are met:
A. No additional lots will be created by the lot consolidation. This request reduces the number of lots by combining two lots.
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 lot consolidation must not increase the nonconformity. The resultant lot, of 2.85 acres, will meet the minimum lot area of the E-Estate zoning district.
C. The lot consolidation will not create a nonconforming setback for any existing building. There are no buildings which could become non-conforming resulting from this action.
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 resulting lot will not be divided by a road or boundary. Cusabo Ct. will continue to be adjacent to the property and provide access.
E. The lot consolidation will not adversely affect access, drainage or utility easements or rights-of-way serving the property or other properties in the area; and there will be no adverse impact to access or easements by this action. The common lot line utility easements proposed to be vacated do not provide service to any other lot and no utilities are installed in them. The providers in the area have noted no need for the easements and no conflict with their vacation.
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 are proposed.
The following County offices have reviewed the lot consolidation and easement vacation and found no issues: Engineering, Health and Planning Departments. The Addressing Office has established a new address and the Assessor’s Office has established a new legal lot.
The Development Services Team recommends Approval of the Crystal Lakes 15th Filing Lots 27 and 31 Lot Consolidation and easement vacation file #19-LAND3941, subject to the following condition(s):
A. All conditions of approval shall be met, and the final resolution recorded by June 1, 2020 or this approval shall be null and void.
B. The resultant lot is subject to any and all covenants, deed restrictions, or other conditions that apply to the original lots.
