PUBLIC HEARINGS AND SECOND READINGS
Amendment 74 Statement of Opposition
Town Council passed a resolution stating its opposition to Amendment 74, a statewide ballot issue that seeks to amend the Constitution of the State of Colorado in a manner that would significantly expose state and local governments to excessive litigation and liability, and to authorize Town staff to report the passage of and distribution of this resolution through established customary means used by the Town for distribution information to the public.
E-470 Establishing Contract Amendment
The E-470 Public Highway Authority requested that Authority members consider amending the contract that established the Authority in order to address language changes to the Establishing Contract that are consistent with the Public Highway Authority Law. The language acknowledges the Authority’s ability to finance, construct, operate and/or maintain other public highways as defined under the Public Highway Authority Law within or outside of the Authority’s boundaries.
Public School Construction Memorandum of Understanding
The Town has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the State of Colorado to provide construction plan review, permitting and field inspection services for public schools that are in need of renewal. Town Council approved this ordinance allowing the Community Development Department’s Building Division to enter into a MOU for Pre-Qualified Building Departments for public school construction. This allows the Town to continue to provide these aforementioned services for public schools.
Second Readings - To Be Continued to Nov. 5

This proposed ordinance would result in the Town granting a utility easement to Parker Water and Sanitation District over Tract B, Reata West Filing No. 1, 2nd Amendment, to accommodate sanitary sewer infrastructure for the proposed Parker Point development located at the southwest corner of Parker Road and Stroh Road. Town Council continued this ordinance to Nov. 5 in order to coincide with the anticipated date of a public hearing for this development.
Consent agenda items are considered to be routine and are enacted by one motion or vote, unless a Councilmember asks that one be removed for further discussion.

The property contains several small buildings and is located at the southeast corner of Lincoln Avenue and Dransfeldt Road.

A public hearing date for Town Council to consider the annexation petition has been set for Nov. 19.
Cottonwood Commercial Filing No. 1 Drainage Easement
Town Council passed this resolution allowing the Town to accept the conveyance of a drainage easement covering improvements proposed with the Site Plan for a portion of Lot 4A, Cottonwood Commercial Filing No. 1, 5th amendment. Since the drainage facilities are being constructed as part of a Site Plan process, and not a Plat, the easements needed to be dedicated by a separate instrument.
Robinson Ranch Filing No. 2 Drainage Easement
Town Council passed this resolution allowing the Town to accept the conveyance of a drainage easement covering improvements proposed with the Site Plan for a portion of Lot 5, Robinson Ranch Filing No. 2, 2nd Amendment.
