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; Michael Whitley, Community Development; Katie Gray, Engineering; Lea Schneider, Health Department; 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.          MATTOON APPEAL, FILE #19-GNRL0468: This is an Appeal to Section 4.3.10.D of the Larimer County Land Use Code to allow a modular home to be used as a storage building.

 

The applicant proposes to utilize an existing modular home as both a home office of 800 square feet and home storage of 1200 square feet.  The modular home has been located on the property and used as storage but was recently discovered to have been located too close to South Garfield.  An existing storage trailer was on the property and removed due to code compliance issues.  The discussions with the applicant indicated a desire to relocate and properly permit this building.  The relevant code language is noted below, emphasis is added. 

 

4.3.10. D Storage buildings and garages. Each lot may include detached storage buildings and garages for the sole use of the occupants of the principal building or principal use on that lot. The total ground floor area of all storage buildings and garages on a lot cannot exceed ten percent of the lot's net area. Semitrailers with attached running gear (i.e. axels, wheels) cannot be used as storage buildings or garages. Only those buildings that are designed, constructed and approved by the Larimer County Building Department as storage buildings or garages may be used for this purpose. Manufactured homes, including pre-1974 mobile homes, cannot be used as storage buildings, barns or garages.

The applicant suggests in his materials that this structure is no longer a modular home due to the interior changes that would separate the office use from the storage use.  Re use of mobile homes and the long-term appearance have been issues discussed by decision makers in the past. Those concerns were a part of the rationale that caused the use of mobile homes in this way to be prohibited.  I t should be pointed out that in this case this is a modular home not a single wide mobile home.

.  

REVIEW CRITERIA:

 

APPEAL TO DEVIATE FROM THE STANDARDS OR REQUIREMENTS

 

When considering whether to approve an appeal to deviate from standards or requirements of this Code, other than minimum lot size requirements, the county commissioners may grant the appeal subject to safeguards and conditions consistent with their findings concerning the following factors. The county commissioners will consider each of the following factors and make findings pertaining to each one which, in their discretion, applies to the appeal:

 

A.        Approval of the appeal will not subvert the purpose of the standard or requirement.

 

This issue has been appealed several times on other parcels.  The general conclusion of those Code discussions has been to conclude as that the use of a modular as a storage building could be considered appropriate, based on context and the ability to obtain a building permit for any modifications.  This proposal would not substantially impair the intent of the Code.  

 

B.         Approval of the appeal will not be detrimental to the public health, safety or property values in the neighborhood.

 

The immediate neighborhood of this application is characterized by a mix of uses including agriculture on acreage and some older small lot residential subdivisions.  If the condition of this structure is maintained, the structure would not be significantly out of character with the surrounding area. 

 

C.         Approval of the appeal is the minimum action necessary.

 

This request allows the applicant to utilize an existing building on his property.  The relocation will meet setback and any square footage limitations imposed by the Code.  The alternative is demolition or removal and replacement with a new structure which would be used the same way. 

 

D.        Approval of the appeal will not result in increased costs to the general public.

 

The Development Review Team’s only concern would be at that if a building permit for a new storage building is not submitted additional enforcement cost could occur.  This could include litigation and, worst-case, costs of removal. 

 

E.        Approval of the appeal is consistent with the intent and purpose of the Code.

 

The Development Services Team recommends Approval of the MATTOON APPEAL file # 19-GNRL0468 subject to the following condition(s):

 

1.         The applicant shall obtain all required permits, permissions, approvals and inspections from the Larimer County Building Division or as directed by that Division prior to the use of the structure.

 

 

2.         FIREHOUSE SELF STORAGE APPEALS, FILE #19-ZONE2553: This is an appeal to section 8.1.1.B.4- On site Wastewater treatment in a Growth Management Area of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

 

The applicant is the contractor for the owners of Firehouse Self Storage in Loveland.  He has submitted an application to convert a portion of the previously approved enclosed storage to climate-controlled RV and smaller self-storage units.  A part of this proposal (phase 2) is to provide an on-site sanitary dump station.  This property is located in the Loveland Growth Management Area (GMA).  In a GMA, the default standard for wastewater treatment is to connect to a public system.  The Code does provide for an exception to this and if certain criteria are met and the Board of County Commissioners approves the request, on site wastewater treatment can occur. 

 

Specifically, the applicant is requesting to install a vault for the dump station.  The nearest sewer is across Hwy 287 to the west.  It would entail boring the highway and significant on-site disruption and construction to bring a wastewater line to the site.  The balance of the site is not served by public sewer nor is it required for the dry storage uses approved and existing.   

 

REVIEW CRITERIA

 

Section 8.1.1.4.B Larimer County Land Use Code.

 

On-site sewage treatment systems in the growth management areas. A development in a growth management area that includes a proposal to use on-site sewage treatment systems must submit an appeal as part of their application. The appeal must include the following items:

 

A.        A technical/economic analysis demonstrating that public sewer is not feasible;

As noted in the discussion above, while technically feasible it would be very costly and require disrupting a large part of the existing uses to extend a public sewer line to the area of the site proposed for the dump station. 

 

B.         A letter from the applicable city utility or sanitation district indicating concurrence that it is not feasible to connect to public sewer;

The comments from the City of Loveland indicate approval of this concept and wish to insure it can be connected to public sewer when it is available. 

 

C.         A letter from the applicable municipality indicating their concurrence that the development as proposed will achieve the land use pattern envisioned for this part of the growth management area.

 

Comments from the City of Loveland indicate no planning issues with the proposed appeal.

 

D.        A letter from the applicable municipality that indicates their willingness to annex the property when it becomes eligible for annexation; and the property remains in the Loveland GMA. An annexation agreement was previously recorded.  The City has not indicated any change that would suggest they are not willing to annex. 

 

E.        Information demonstrating that on-site sewage treatment systems can be safely provided as anticipated in subsections 8.1.1.B.2.d and e above.

The proposal by the applicant is consistent with the comments from the Health Department regarding warning systems, periodic pumping and sealing systems to eliminate odors.  Further the comments for the Health Department support this request.

 

The Development Services Team recommends Approval of the Fire House Self Storage APPEAL file # 19-ZONE2553 subject to the following condition(s):

 

    1.         The system shall be located and designed in such a manner that it can be connected to            public sewer when it is available.  The plans shall be reviewed by the Health                             Department to ensure that the design meets this requirement.

 

            2.         All necessary permits shall be obtained from the Health Department prior to                                                 installation. 

 

3.         COLUMBINE LODGE AMENDED SPECIAL REVIEW, FILE #18-ZONE2434: This is an Amendment to the Columbine Lodge Special Review (File 09-Z1745) to relocate on-site camping space sites based upon a revision to the floodplain.

 

This item was on the consent agenda for the July 10, 2019, Planning Commission public hearing at 6:30 pm. A citizen wanted to comment on the item, so the case was removed from the consent agenda and placed on the discussion agenda for a full hearing.

 

Staff presented the Development Services Team report recommending approval of the Amended

Special Review.

 

Staff noted that when the Planning Commission staff report was written, only one email from a neighbor had been received. That email raised concerns about expanding camping on the site.  Staff responded to the email and explained that this amendment was only dealing with moving the location of the campsites and that the camping was not being expanded.

 

Since the Planning Commission report was written, 4 additional emails from one individual who lives in Poudre Park were received and shared with the Commissioners. The concern from that neighbor is with wildlife.  Staff explained that there are some wildlife standards in the Land Use Code identifying habitats that are to be considered when reviewing development proposals. The Columbine Lodge property is not within any of those mapped habitat areas.  A referral was sent to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Division with no response received.  Staff did not see any conflict with wildlife in moving the campsites.

 

Planning Commission members asked if there are currently restrictions on use of the area where

camping is proposed. Staff responded that there are not restrictions on activity in the area other

than a prohibition against camping.

 

Planning Commission members also asked about how far the campsites were being moved,

about the notification boundary used for the case, the distance between the property lines and the

Poudre River, and whether or not there is public access to the river.

 

One member of the public spoke. He said that he believes there is public access to the high

water mark of the river and he expressed concerns that if fire rings are allowed that a fire could

jump to the north side of the river.  He also expressed concerns about people urinating in the

river.

 

During his rebuttal period, the applicant explained that each camping space has a pre-built fire

ring that is cleaned regularly and that there is a full-time on-camp monitor during the weekends

which is their busiest time who can enforce fire bans when they are in effect. He also explained

the availability of on-site restroom facilities.

 

There was a discussion regarding the location of the property lines relative to the river and

public access to the river.

 

PLANNING COMMISSION AND DEVELOPMENT SERVICES TEAM RECOMMENDATION:

 

Commissioner Dougherty moved that the Planning Commission adopt the following Resolution:

 

BE IT RESOLVED that the Planning Commission recommend to the Board of County Commissioners approval of the Columbine Lodge Amended Special Review, File #18-Zone2434, subject to the following eight conditions:

 

1.         The Site shall be developed consistent with the approved plan and with the information contained in the Columbine Lodge Amended Special Review, File #18-Z2434, except as modified by the conditions of approval or agreement of the County and applicant.  The applicant shall be subject to all other verbal or written representations and commitments of record for the Columbine Lodge Amended Special Review.

 

2.         Failure to comply with any conditions of the Amended Special Review approval may result in reconsideration of the use and possible revocation of the approval by the Board of Commissioners.

 

3.         Measures must be taken to control erosion during all phases of construction.  After construction is completed, all disturbed areas must be repaired to a condition that is equal to or better than the pre-construction condition.

 

4.         Barriers such as large rocks shall be installed along the perimeter of the septic absorption fields adjacent to vehicle driveways and accesses. 

 

5.         This application is approved without the requirement for a Development Agreement.

 

6.         In the event the applicant fails to comply with any conditions of approval or otherwise fails to use the property consistent with the approved Amended Special Review, applicant agrees that in addition to all other remedies available to County, County may withhold building permits, issue a written notice to applicant to appear and show cause why the Amended Special Review approval should not be revoked, and/or bring a court action for enforcement of the terms of the Special Review.  All remedies are cumulative and the County’s election to use one shall not preclude use of another.  In the event County must retain legal counsel and/or pursue a court action to enforce the terms of this Special Review approval, applicant agrees to pay all expenses incurred by County including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney’s fees.

 

7.         County may conduct periodic inspections to the property and reviews of the status of the Amended Special Review as appropriate to monitor and enforce the terms of the Amended Special Review approval.

 

8.         The Findings and Resolution shall be a servitude running with the Property.  Those owners of the Property or any portion of the Property who obtain title subsequent to the date of recording of the Findings and Resolution, their heirs, successors, assigns or transferees, and persons holding under applicants shall comply with the terms and conditions of the Special Review approval.

 

 

4.         CARTER APPEAL, FILE #19-ZONE2549: This is an appeal to Section 4.3.10.H.c of the Larimer County Land Use Code to allow a detached accessory living area to exceed the required size limit of 40% of the square footage in the single-family dwelling or 800 square feet, whichever is less.

 

The subject property is a 55.69-acre parcel at 6274 Savvy Place, Fort Collins.  It is located south of the end of Savvy Court approximately one-half mile south of the intersection of Savvy Court and W. County Road 60.

 

The property is currently undeveloped.  The property owners have submitted a Public Site Plan application seeking approval for an accessory living area and an appeal to Section 4.3.10.H.c of the Land Use Code which limits the size of a detached accessory living area to 40% of the square footage of the single-family dwelling or 800 square feet, whichever is less.

 

The property owners’ plan is to construct a 980-square foot home first and live in that home while they construct a larger single-family home.  Until the second home is constructed, the 980-square foot home will be the property’s primary residence. Once the larger single-family home is constructed, the property owners will live in the larger home and the 980-square foot home would remain as a detached accessory living area.

 

The applicant’s project description indicates that after the second home is constructed, the detached accessory living area is intended to be occupied by the property owners’ elderly parents.  One of the justifications for the size appeal is that the home would be designed to be handicapped accessible with widened doorways and enough space for navigating the living area with a wheelchair.

 

If the size appeal is granted by the Board of County Commissioners, the Public Site Plan can be approved administratively by the Community Development Director.  Public Site Plan approvals are effective for two years.  If the applicant has not yet obtained a building permit for the construction of the larger primary residence after two years, they can request an extension of the approval.

 

The Development Services Team evaluates each request on its own merits but historically has typically supported Accessory Living Areas up to 1,200 square feet in detached buildings. 

 

REVIEW CRITERIA:

 

22.2.3 REVIEW CRITERIA FOR APPEALS TO DEVIATE FROM STANDARDS OR REQUIREMENTS OTHER THAN MINIMUM LOT SIZE

 

When considering whether to approve an appeal to deviate from standards or requirements of this Code, other than minimum lot size requirements, the County Commissioners may grant the appeal subject to safeguards and conditions consistent with their findings concerning the following factors. The County Commissioners will consider each of the following factors and make findings pertaining to each one which, in their discretion, applies to the appeal:

 

A.        Approval of the appeal will not subvert the purpose of the standard or requirement.

 

The purpose of the section is to allow for accessory living areas that are incidental to the primary use of the property as single-family residential and of an appropriate scale.  The size limitation was included to ensure the accessory use remains accessory to the principal home, at an appropriate scale and to prevent the use from turning into multi-family residential and/or a rental which are not permitted. 

 

At 980 square feet, the accessory living area would be (22.5%) larger than the allowed 800 square feet.

 

Three mitigating factors in this case are the property size, distance of the accessory living area from the property lines and the distance from the nearest neighbors.

 

The property is 55.69 acres in size and all of the adjacent parcels are 35 acres or larger.  The large parcel size lessens the impact of exceeding the maximum accessory living area size because the difference is less visible than it would be on a smaller parcel.

 

The proposed location of the mobile home is 288 feet from the closest property line and approximately 2,100 feet from the access point to Savvy Place. The home is approximately one-half mile from the closest single-family homes.

 

Given that the unit will not be rented, would not be out of scale for the property, the large setbacks, and the large distances between the home and the closest existing homes, approval of the appeal would not subvert the purpose of the size standard.

 

B.         Approval of the appeal will not be detrimental to the public health, safety or property values in the neighborhood.

 

Notice of the Public Site Plan application and size appeal were sent to surrounding property owners. No neighbors responded.  It is not anticipated that granting the appeal would be detrimental to the public health, safety or property values in the neighborhood. 

 

C.         Approval of the appeal is the minimum action necessary.

 

Approval of the appeal is the minimum action necessary to allow for the construction of the handicapped accessible accessory living area desired by the property owners. 

 

D.        Approval of the appeal will not result in increased costs to the general public.

 

It is not anticipated that the project will result in the need for improvements to public facilities or increased costs to the public.

 

E.        Approval of the appeal is consistent with the intent and purpose of the Code.

 

The intent of the detached accessory living area regulations is to allow guest quarters that are secondary to the principal single-family home on the property and compatible with uses in the surrounding area.  

 

No neighboring property owners have objected to the request. Given the size of the living area, the size of the property, the restriction on renting the unit, the location of the accessory living area relative to the property lines and to the nearest single-family homes and lack of neighbor concerns, approval of the appeal would be consistent with the intent and purpose of the Code.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Carter Appeal, File #19-ZONE2549 with the following condition:

 

            1.         The accessory living area shall be located as shown on the approved site plan.

 

The Development Services Team notes that if the proposed appeal is approved, additional conditions will be placed on the Public Site Plan approval including the need for obtaining all applicable permits and an expiration of the Public Site Plan approval.

 

5.         FLOWER POWER BOTANICALS RETAIL MARIJUANA ESTABLISHMENT LICENSE RENEWALS, FILE #15-G0286: This is a request for renewal of a Retail Marijuana Store License and a Retail Marijuana Cultivation Facility License.

 

In 2014, Flower Power Botanicals was issued a Retail Marijuana Store License and a Retail Marijuana Cultivation License to operate at 1308 & 1310 Duff Drive which is two units within a multi-tenant building located north of Duff Drive approximately 750 feet northwest of the intersection of Link Lane and Duff Drive.  The site is 1.89 acres and the existing building has a footprint of 29,520 square feet. 

 

The property is zoned I - Industrial, is within the Fort Collins Growth Management Area and within the East Mulberry Corridor Plan area.

 

Retail Marijuana Establishment Licenses must be renewed annually.  The Board of County Commissioners held a license renewal hearing for the Flower Power Botanicals Retail Marijuana Establishment Licenses in 2015, 2016 and 2017 with no opposition to the renewal of the licenses.  The Board of County Commissioners waived the requirement for a renewal hearing in 2018 based on a finding that there was no opposition to the renewal and the Licensee had operated the Retail Marijuana Establishment in compliance with all laws and conditions of the license.

 

A hearing is being held for the license renewals this year because a sale to an underage person occurred earlier this year in violation of state law.

 

On February 12, an individual conducting an underage sale compliance check for the Marijuana Enforcement Division successfully purchased retail marijuana. The sale was one marijuana cone weighing 0.7 grams.

 

The employee who sold the marijuana and one additional employee were immediately terminated by Flower Power Botanicals. Flower Power Botanicals has contracted for further training with a Marijuana Enforcement Division-approved vendor and has started electronic ID scanning.

 

Flower Power Botanicals received Special Review approval from the Board of County Commissioners on November 15, 2010 to operate a Medical Marijuana Dispensary & a Medical Marijuana Grow Operation within two units of the building totaling 5,040 square feet.  Approval or denial of the Retail Marijuana Establishment licenses would not affect the Special Review approval.

 

REVIEW CRITERIA:

 

Section XVI.E of the Larimer County Retail Marijuana Establishment Resolution contains the standards for license renewal.

 

In determining whether to grant or deny a Renewal License the Board shall consider the following as applicable:

 

1.         Whether the Applicant has failed to comply with any of the terms, conditions or provisions of the State Retail Marijuana Code and any rules or regulations promulgated thereunder, or this Resolution.

 

To the best of staff’s knowledge, except for one underage sale, the applicant has complied with all terms, conditions and provisions of the State Retail Marijuana Code and of the Larimer County Retail Marijuana Establishment Resolution.

 

2.         Whether the Applicant has failed to comply with any terms or conditions that were placed on its State Retail Marijuana License or a License issued under this Resolution.

 

To the best of staff’s knowledge, except for one underage sale, the applicant has complied with all terms and conditions that were placed on their State Retail Marijuana Licenses and on their Larimer County Licenses.

 

3.         Whether the Licensed Premises has been operated in a manner that adversely affects the public health or the safety of the immediate neighborhood in which the Retail Marijuana Store is located.

 

No citizens, businesses or public or private agencies have expressed concerns that the Licensed Premised have operated in a manner that adversely affects the public health or safety of the immediate neighborhood.

 

4.         Whether complaints about the Retail Marijuana Store have been made to the Administrator or others by the public or law enforcement.

 

No complaints about the Retail Marijuana Store or Retail Marijuana Cultivation Facility have been made to the Administrator or others by the public or law enforcement.

 

5.         Whether there has been increased need for law enforcement in the vicinity of the Retail Marijuana Store related to or as a result of its operation.

 

The Larimer County Sheriff’s office reports that in the last year they received 7 calls for service to the location. The calls for service have consisted of medical calls, multiple alarm calls and fraudulent identification card calls. The Sheriff’s office did not indicate that there has been an increased need for law enforcement in the vicinity because of the operation. 

 

The Larimer County Sheriff’s office notes the business is violation of federal criminal codes pertaining to the cultivation and distribution of marijuana as it is still a Schedule I controlled substance under the Federal Criminal Code. Based on this information, the Sheriff’s office opposes renewing the licenses.

 

6.         Whether the Applicant has changed its business structure and whether the current owners, officers, managers, contractors, employees, and other support staff have completed a fingerprint-based criminal history record check and the results of such check.

 

The applicant has not changed their business structure since Larimer County issued their licenses last year. 

 

The Colorado Department of Revenue Marijuana Enforcement Division completed fingerprint-based criminal history record checks on the applicant prior to issuing the state licenses for the retail marijuana operations. New fingerprint-based criminal history checks were conducted by the State prior to renewing the state licenses earlier this year. Nothing in the record checks prevented the State of Colorado from issuing and then renewing the applicants’ state licenses for the retail marijuana operations.  

 

            7.         Whether any physical modifications have been made to the Licensed Premises.

           

There have been no physical modifications to the Licensed Premises since the issuance of the Retail Marijuana Store License and a Retail Marijuana Cultivation License last year.

 

8.         Whether the Applicant owns the Licensed Premises or has a valid lease, rental agreement or other arrangement for possession of the Licensed Premises for the term of the renewal.

 

The applicant has a lease for the Licensed Premises from Carlson Investment and Management LTD that is valid from November 1, 2010 to October 31, 2020.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Flower Power Botanicals Retail Marijuana Store License Renewal (File #15-G0286) subject to the following conditions;

 

1.         The Retail Marijuana Store shall be operated in full compliance with all licensing requirements, regulations and standards of the State of Colorado Department of Revenue Marijuana Enforcement Division.

 

2.         The Retail Marijuana Store shall be operated in full compliance with all licensing requirements, regulations and standards of the Larimer County Resolution for Licensure of Retail Marijuana Establishments.

 

The Development Services Team recommends approval of the Flower Power Botanicals Retail Marijuana Cultivation Facility License Renewal (File #15-G0286) subject to the following conditions;

 

1.         The Retail Marijuana Cultivation Facility shall be operated in full compliance with all licensing requirements, regulations and standards of the State of Colorado Department of Revenue Marijuana Enforcement Division.

 

2.         The Retail Marijuana Cultivation Facility shall be operated in full compliance with all licensing requirements, regulations and standards of the Larimer County Resolution for Licensure of Retail Marijuana Establishments.

 

Chair Donnelly asked if anyone would like to have any of the above items removed from the Consent Agenda for a few public hearings.

 

No members of the audience wished to have any items removed.

 

The Commissioners did not wish to have any items removed but did have some questions on the Firehouse Self Storage Appeals.

 

The Commissioner asked why the report on page 10 does not mention any comments from the Engineering Department but does have comments on page 17.

 

Mr. Helmick explained that those comments are specific to the Site Plan not the Appeal.

 

MOTION                 

 

Commissioner Johnson moved to approve the consent agenda for Monday, October 7, 2019

 

Motion carried 3-0

 

With there being no more land use items, the Board recessed at 3:10 p.m.

 

PUBLIC HEARING

 

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 6:30 p.m., with Lesli Ellis, Community Development Director; Chair Donnelly presided, Commissioner Johnson and Commissioner Kefalas were present. Also present were:  Jen Cram and Michael Whitley, Community Development; Gabrielle Daley and Ken Fellman, Consultants representing Kissinger and Fellman; Frank Haug, County Attorney; and Deirdre O’Neill, Deputy Clerk.

 

1.         AMENDMENTS TO THE LARIMER COUNTY LAND USE CODE REGARDING WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS FACILITIES REGULATIONS: To amend the Larimer County Land Use Code to include new wireless communications facilities regulations by:

 

(1)        replacing and repealing Chapter 16, Commercial Mobile Radio Services (CMRS) of the Land Use Code with new Chapter 16 entitled Wireless Communications Facilities Regulations.

 

(2)        making minor amendments to align terms in General Provisions, Section 0.1,                                    Definitions; and

           

(3)        making minor amendments to achieve consistency and cross reference the new regulations in Chapter 4, Section 4.5, Special Review and Minor Special Review, Chapter 12, Common Procedures for Development Review, and Chapter 22, Appeals.

 

This item was on the discussion agenda for the September 11, 2019 Planning Commission public hearing at 6:30 p.m. At the hearing, staff presented the report, recommending approval of the draft Wireless Communication Facilities regulations.

 

Since earlier this year, the County has been working on revising the existing Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) Facility Standards in Section 16 of the Land Use Code. The update to the land use regulations, entitled Wireless Communications Facilities (WCFs), will repeal and replace the current chapter and are intended to:

 

1.    Carry forward the original intent of allowing WCFs in the county to meet our growing communication needs while minimizing adverse impacts.

 

2.    Bring local standards into compliance with federal and state requirements (including timing of review and to allow and provide standards for small cell facilities in rights-of-way).

 

3.         Address new technology and its implications for land use, and

 

4.         Improve design and compatibility of such facilities and include notification procedures.

 

Approximately 20 people attended the open house and 22 people responded online. Staff shared the input from those events with the boards in previous packets along with additional written correspondence received from community members prior to the June hearing date.

 

The current regulatory framework for the proposed regulations was presented at the August 21, 2019 study session and is described in the Planning Commission packet memo (Attachment B) and is therefore not detailed here. The proposed regulations will bring the County’s regulations into compliance with the 2014, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules under a 2012 federal statute for eligible facilities requests and the 2018, Colorado HB 17-1193, “Small Cell Law.” Additionally, the regulations are compliant with the 1996 Telecommunications Act, 47 USC 332(c)(7)(b)(iv) which restricts any state or local regulation of wireless facilities based on environmental (including health) effects of radio frequency emission, preempting local authority. Finally, the proposed regulations require telecommunication providers to apply with all applicable state and federal laws (in Section 16.1.3), now specifically noting ADA requirements. In addition, outside of the regulations, the County can commit to maintaining a database and map of small cell facility locations.

 

The proposed standards address priority for collocating facilities, include compatibility and concealing standards, and address a number of issues for towers and alternative tower structures such as height, setbacks, new camouflage/concealment language to achieve design in context with surroundings, as well as addressing lighting, noise and landscaping. Table 16.A (with Planning Commission changes noted) on the next page, identifies the zoning districts where WCFs are allowed and their height limits, including several changes introduced by Planning Commission. Generally, taller facilities are allowed in business, commercial, and industrial districts and the O-Open district. More concealed facilities are encouraged in the Estate, Residential, Farming, and Forestry districts. Because of proximity to denser residential areas, Growth Management Areas have heightened standards and procedures, such as encouraging concealed towers, including greater landscaping and screening requirements, and including a referral as part of the review to the respective city or town.

 

Additionally, the proposed standards now provide guidance on small cell facilities in the right-of-way, which the current standards do not address.

 

The procedures expand upon existing notification and referral requirements, so all WCFs will involve some form of notification. Notifying neighbors within 500-feet of a property is the standard practice with county development review; however, on a case-by-case basis that radius may be expanded to 1,000 feet or more, for instance when 500-feet would dissect a neighborhood or subdivision.

 

The proposed regulations address state legislation pertaining to timely review of wireless facilities, which is referred to as the “shot clock.” Shot clock requirements for final action on complete applications are as follows:

 

-           150 days for new structures.

-           90 days for collocated wireless communication facilities that do not qualify as an eligible facilities request and small cell facilities (collocated or new).

-           60 days for eligible facilities requests.

 

Provisions for “tolling the shot clock” (i.e., pausing or stopping the review) for incomplete applications are included. These review time frames have been set by the state statute. The county may stop the clock for incomplete or insufficient information if it provides notice of the deficiency to the applicant

 

early in the process. The proposed regulations also incorporate the 2014 FCC regulations that require “eligible facilities requests” for modifications on existing wireless sites to be processed even more quickly, in this case through a building permit only process. The proposed regulations will give the county staff the information necessary at the time of application to quickly determine whether an application qualifies as an eligible facilities request, which, per federal law, must be approved.

6 .         2019 PROSECUTOR OF THE YEAR AWARD RECIPIENT:

 

The District Attorney's Office would like to share a wonderful honor bestowed

upon one of our most truly dedicated prosecutors. Deputy District Attorney Cara

Boxberger is the 2019 recipient of the "Robert R. Gallagher, Prosecutor of the Year

Award."

 

Clifford Riedel, District Attorney for the 8th Judicial District, is pleased to announce that Cara Boxberger is the 2019 recipient of the “Robert R. Gallagher, Prosecutor of the Year Award.” The Colorado District Attorney’s Council (CDAC) made the presentation at their annual fall conference earlier this month. In seeking state-wide nominations in the prosecutor field, CDAC sought individuals who performed a series of outstanding prosecutorial accomplishments in the past year, which have demonstrated the Prosecutor’s exceptional advocacy. Along with these accomplishments, this individual needed to have performed above average in their profession; exhibited dedication to their community; and displayed exceptional courage, initiative, innovation and commitment, while maintaining a professional demeanor and reputation. In presenting Cara Boxberger, the award at the annual conference, District Attorney Riedel commented, “Cara is currently assigned to our Sexual Assault/Crimes Against Children Unit. Cara is a fierce and tireless advocate for our most vulnerable victims. Cara’s passion for helping victims and seeking justice is sincere and instinctive. Her legal skills are second to none.” Cara has been a prosecutor for over 11 years. She is assigned to the Special Victims Unit and prosecutes some of the most intellectually challenging and emotionally draining cases daily. Cara is extremely passionate and driven by the need to protect the most innocent members of our community. She is unfailing in her support of victims of sex assault, child abuse, and domestic violence. Cara is very deserving of this award and our office is extremely lucky to have her as a part of our team.

 

Mitch Murray, Assistant District Attorney spoke about this year’s recipient, Cara Boxberger, who was also in attendance.

 

Mr. Murray mentioned that Ms. Boxberger works in the Crimes against Children’s Unit and how dedicated she is and how deserving she is of this award. He mentioned her compassion and zeal for prosecution.

 

The Commissioners congratulated Ms. Boxberger and asked her how she personally handles secondary trauma?

 

Ms. Boxberger explained that even though these are cases which involve tremendous trauma she thrives on helping them move forward regardless of the legal outcome. She mentioned her incredible staff and the support and open communication they provide for her on an everyday basis. She mentioned that this is a real honor and that it is important to seek justice for the most vulnerable.

 

The Board took a pause for a brief photo.

 

The meeting returned to session.

 

7.         2019 RECYCLING AWARD RECIPIENT:

 

The North Front Range Regional Wasteshed Coalition has earned the 2019 Outstanding Community or Government Program Award from the National Recycling Coalition. This National Award honors the unprecedented collaboration, cooperation, and visionary work of the project, which serves as a model for the rest of Colorado and stands out as a best practice throughout the U.S. In 2024, the Larimer County Landfill is expected to reach capacity.  In recognition of this fact, Loveland, Larimer County, Fort Collins, and Estes Park started working together in 2015 to determine what will come next, forming the North Front Range Regional Wasteshed Coalition. Recognizing that infrastructure must meet the needs of an entire region, the coalition worked through the details of generating a Solid Waste Infrastructure Master Plan, which was adopted by the Larimer County Commissioners in December of 2018.

 

Six members of the regional Solid Waste Policy Council received awards from Recycle Colorado and recognized as champions of recycling in rural Colorado, lawmakers dedicated to waste diversion, and businesses that exemplify waste reduction best practices. Award recipients were nominated by their industry peers in recognition of their contributions to or promotion of recycling and waste reduction.

 

Laurie Kadrich, Interim Director of Community Planning, Infrastructure and Resources and Stephen Gillette, Solid Waste Director approached the Board.

 

Ms. Kadrich explained that there are actually two awards. One for Commissioner Steve Johnson for developing policy and one for the Technical Team Award.

 

Mr. Gillette spoke about how fortunate that this is a regional effort that will also soon add Wellington to this group.

 

Ms. Kadrich wanted specifically to recognize Mr. Gillette who had the opportunity to divert up to 40% of materials away from the landfill and how unbelievably significant that is. She mentioned his foresight in implementation.

 

Commissioner Johnson mentioned that “Everything I learned about landfills, I learned from Stephen.”

 

The Commissioners wanted to thank them for their tremendous work and how impressed they are about the next phase of collaboration and Mr. Gillettes outstanding management.

 

Linda Hoffman, County Manager congratulated everone on the awards and on finding ways to make it financially feasable.

 

The Board took a brief recess for a photo.

 

The meeting returned to session.
