Want to know what happened at the most recent Town Council Meeting? We have you covered! Recaps will be posted on ParkerOnline.org each Wednesday following that week's Town Council Meeting.
Restricted Parking Area Near Legend High SchoolTown Council approved a resolution designating a restricted parking area near Legend High School in the Idyllwilde subdivision, pursuant to Section 7.02.100 of the Parker Municipal Code, which was approved at the Dec. 3, 2018 Town Council Meeting. Section 7.02.100 allows residents to request that the streets in their neighborhood be permit restricted. The Code requires that the proposed parking area be within 1,500-feet of a non-residential land use that is generating excess traffic that would typically be contained on the same site generating a need for parking. The Code also requires that the majority of on-street parking spaces be occupied on multiple days of the week and that multiple parking complaints or violations be documented within the previous year.
Town staff received and reviewed the request for permit restricted parking from certain residents and determined that the proposed area near Legend High School did indeed qualify under the standards contained in Section 7.02.100. The Engineering Department received the consent of at least 70% of residents within the proposed restricted parking area. There is a cost to the Town for establishing the restricted parking area, administering the permits and enforcing the parking restrictions. A portion of these costs will be recovered through permit fees. The permits are subject to renewal every two years.Approved 4-2 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Rivero, Williams; Opposed: Poage, Toborg)
Schoolhouse Water and Sewer Easement ConveyanceTown staff has proposed an ordinance to dedicate an easement to the Parker Water and Sanitation District on a Town-owned parcel, Lot 1B, Mainstreet Center, located directly west of the Town’s Schoolhouse facility. This easement would allow the Town to install a water service line and fire hydrant to accommodate future development of the parking lot, which is slated to be reconstructed in 2019 in a Town capital improvement project.Approved 6-0Kings Point Way Intergovernmental AgreementAn intergovernmental agreement has been proposed between the Town of Parker and City of Aurora that will address and formalize the design, construction, ownership and maintenance of that portion of the future Kings Point Way located in Aurora. As a portion of the proposed roadway north of Cottonwood Drive is outside the Town’s incorporated boundary, where the Town has contractually committed to construct the roadway to Aurora Parkway, an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) is necessary.Due to the continued development of the Crown Point development and the proposed Kings Point development north of Cottonwood Drive, a roadway parallel to Parker Road (State Highway 83) is needed to support the anticipated traffic. Kings Point Way will be a parallel collector roadway to the east of Parker Road to provide an alternative route for traffic in the area. The construction of Kings Point Way between Cottonwood Drive on the south and the proposed Aurora Parkway on the north will be a community enhancement to support the economic development of this areaApproved 6-0
