Ordinances


North Parker Road Improvements - Notice of Intent to Acquire Easements
Town Council approved an ordinance providing notice of the Town’s intent to acquire easements and right-of-way necessary to construct operational improvements to Parker Road between Parkglenn Way and E-470. In order to accommodate the roadway widening, sidewalks, and associated grading and utilities proposed for the project, right-of-way and easements will need to be acquired from nine commercial properties along the project corridor. This includes one area of permanent right-of-way, one permanent easement split between two properties and 10 separate temporary construction easements. Town staff and consultants will utilize good-faith negotiations with the affected property owners. As with all Town acquisitions, staff is optimistic that agreements can be reached with the property owners, particularly with the majority of these acquisitions being temporary in nature. The ordinance authorizes staff and consultants to initiate the acquisition of the needed right-of-way and easements.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Dransfeldt Road Extension Project - Roadway Alignment and Grade
Town Council approved and ordinance that establishes the vertical and horizontal alignment and the grade of the Dransfeldt Road Extension from Motsenbocker Road to Twenty Mile Road and Motsenbocker Road from Todd Drive to Longland Parkway. The Town plans to commence construction of the Dransfeldt Road Extension over Cherry Creek between Motsenbocker Road and Twenty Mile Road, which includes improvements to Motsenbocker Road between Longland Parkway and Todd Drive, in 2023. Since the Dransfeldt Road extension is a new Town roadway and the proposed improvements to Motsenbocker Road include a realignment of an existing roadway, the Town is required to establish the vertical alignment, the horizontal alignment and the grade for these roadways. 
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

CONSENT AGENDA

First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for Jan. 18


Parker Hilltop Square Lot 10 - Slope Easement Vacation
This ordinance proposes to vacate a portion of a Town-owned slope easement on Lot 10, Parker Hilltop Square. This vacation is being requested by the developer of the property in order to recover a portion of the easement area for development. The proposed development plan would install a tiered retaining wall system that would preserve the integrity of the roadway embankment, which could allow approximately 30 feet of the 50-foot slope easement to be vacated. If approved, this easement vacation would be conditioned upon the developer obtaining site plan approval from the Town.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Parker Road Right-of-Way Dedication
This proposed ordinance would dedicate Parker Road right-of-way at the southwest corner of the Mainstreet intersection to the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) by quit claim deed. Town Council previously approved the Chase Bank Minor Development Plat for the property at the southwest corner of Parker Road and Mainstreet. This plat dedicated property to the Town of Parker that was utilized for operational (turn lane) improvements constructed at the southwest corner of this intersection. With the operational improvements complete, and since the Town will not be maintaining Parker Road, Town staff would like to move forward with the dedication of the Parker Road right-of-way to CDOT.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Special Licensing Authority Appointments

Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Stroh Crossing Drainage Easement Conveyance Acceptance
The Town’s Stormwater criterion requires that drainage easements be dedicated over all public storm drainage facilities located on private property. The drainage easements are necessary to ensure the long-term operation and maintenance of drainage infrastructure to minimize flooding and protect the quality of stormwater runoff. The Engineering and Public Works Department has reviewed and approved construction drawings for the drainage facilities associated with an approved site plan for a portion of Lot 6, Block 10, Stroh Crossing Filing No. 1, Amendment No. 1. Since the drainage facilities are being constructed as part of a site plan process, and not a plat, the easements need to be dedicated by a separate instrument. Town Council approved acceptance of the easement conveyance via this resolution.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Parker and Pine Filing 1 Drainage Easement Conveyance Acceptance
The Town’s Stormwater criterion requires that drainage easements be dedicated over all public storm drainage facilities located on private property. The drainage easements are necessary to ensure the long-term operation and maintenance of drainage infrastructure to minimize flooding and protect the quality of stormwater runoff. The Engineering and Public Works Department has reviewed and approved construction drawings for the drainage facilities associated with an approved site plan for a portion of Lot 2, Parker and Pine Filing No. 1. Since the drainage facilities are being constructed as part of a site plan process, and not a plat, the easements need to be dedicated by a separate instrument. Town Council approved acceptance of the easement conveyance via this resolution.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Canvas Filing 1 Drainage Easement Conveyance Acceptance
The Town’s Stormwater criterion requires that drainage easements be dedicated over all public storm drainage facilities located on private property.

The Engineering and Public Works Department has reviewed and approved construction drawings for the drainage facilities associated with an approved site plan for parcels of land situated in portions of Lots 1-4, Canvas Filing No.1. Since the drainage facilities are being constructed as part of a site plan process, and not a plat, the easements need to be dedicated by a separate instrument. Town Council approved acceptance of the easement conveyance via this resolution.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Investment Advisory Committee Appointment
Town Council passed a resolution reappointing Councilmember John Diak to the Town’s Investment Advisory Committee, which consists of a Councilmember, Town Finance Director, Town Administrator and two community financial professionals. Councilmember Diak’s previous term expired on Dec. 31, 2021.
