1.   The Final Plat shall be consistent with the approved preliminary plan and with the information contained in the Thompson’s Lakeside Subdivision Amendment No. 1, File #16-LAND3505 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 Thompson’s Lakeside Subdivision Amendment No. 1.

 

2.   The following fees shall be collected at building permit issuance for new single family dwellings: Poudre R-1 school fee, Larimer County fees for County and Regional Transportation Capital Expansion and Larimer County Regional Park Fees (in lieu of dedication).  The fee amount that is current at the time of building permit application shall apply.

 

3.   Either a fire hydrant must be installed within 400 feet of the new residential building or a fire sprinkler system must be installed.

 

4.   All habitable structures will require an engineered foundation system. Such engineered foundation system designs shall be based upon a site specific soils investigation.  The lowest habitable floor level (basement) shall not be less than 3 feet from the seasonal high water table.  Mechanical methods proposed to reduce the ground water level, unless it is a response after construction, must be proposed on a development wide basis.

 

5.   Passive radon mitigation measures shall be included in construction of residential structures on these lots.  The results of a radon detection test conducted in new dwellings once the structure is enclosed but prior to issuance of a certificate of occupancy shall be submitted to the Building Department.  As an alternative, a builder may present a prepaid receipt from a radon tester which specifies that a test will be done within 30 days.  A permanent certificate of occupancy can be issued when the prepaid receipt is submitted
