5.†††††††† COMMENTS FROM COMMISSIONERSí GUESTS: Commissioner Donnelly invited Chris Fine, Director of Fund Development at McKee Medical Center Foundation to address the board.

 

Mr. Fine gave a brief overview of the McKee Wellness Foundation, which has been in place for 40 years. The McKee Foundation has started working with various community partners such as, Front Range Community College, Loveland Housing Authority, Larimer County Veteran Services to name a few. The Larimer County Veteran Services was recently a beneficiary of a $15,000 grant.

 

6.†††††††† LOVELAND US HIGHWAY 34 ACCESS CONTROL PLAN: Rusty McDaniel, Assistant County Engineer. Rusty McDaniel provided an overview of the US Highway 34 Access Control plan to the board. Growth in northern Colorado is causing an increase in traffic volumes on most roads in Larimer County. US Highway 34 from I-25 west through Loveland is no exception. With increased traffic volumes, safety and capacity issues become more apparent. Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) Region 4, City of Loveland, and Larimer County have worked to create a plan that will try to help preserve and improve the safety and capacity of US 34 from I-25, west to Larimer County Road 27. The plan identifies recommended changes at each of the access points along this stretch of US 34. Rusty McDaniel, Assistant County Engineer. †

 

In 2017, the US 34 Coalition was created for the US 34 Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study from Kersey on the east end to LCR 27 on the west end. The Coalition determined that an access control plan was needed west of I-25. The length of the plan is 10.6 miles from I-25 on the east end to LCR 27 on the west end. Of the 10.6 miles, 2.8 miles are in unincorporated Larimer County and 7.8 miles are within Lovelandís city limits. There is no set time frame for the changes and the recommended improvements represent a long-range plan that will be implemented over time as safety issues arise, new or redevelopment occurs and as funding becomes available. The Loveland US Highway 34 Access Control Plan is attached for additional information.

 

This measure is to approve an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between CDOT Region 4, City of Loveland, and Larimer County agreeing to implement the Loveland US Highway 34 Access Control Plan which is bounded from I-25 on the east end to Larimer County Road 27 on the west end.

 

7. †††††††† COUNTY MANAGER WORKSESSION:  Ms. Hoffman updated the Board on upcoming projects and activities.

 

8.†††††††† COMMISSIONER ACTIVITY REPORTS: The Board detailed their attendance at events during the previous week.

 

With there being no further business, the Board adjourned at 10:17 a.m.
