PUBLIC HEARINGS AND SECOND READINGS

Public Hearings


Hess Ranch Metropolitan Districts 1, 2 and 3 Intergovernmental Agreements
Town Council approved two ordinances and five resolutions related to amended and restated service plans for Hess Ranch Metro Districts 1, 2 and 3 (to be known as Trails at Crowfoot Metro Districts 1, 2 and 3). Pursuant to the terms of the proposed IGAs and Service Plans, the Districts have agreed to levy and remit to the Town a property tax of 5 mills, which will be used for the planning, design, construction and maintenance of Town infrastructure.
Approved 4-1 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Toborg, Williams; Opposed: Poage)

Industrial Hemp Applications Emergency Ordinance
Amendment 64 (which legalized the recreational use of marijuana) directed the Colorado General Assembly to enact legislation to govern the cultivation, processing and sale of industrial hemp. The General Assembly passed SB19-240, and it has been signed by the Governor. This senate bill authorizes local governments to establish licensing requirements on businesses engaged in the growing, storage, extraction, processing or manufacturing of industrial hemp or commercial products containing industrial hemp. The Town’s current regulations are not adequate to address the location and public safety impacts of businesses engaged in the storage, extraction, processing or manufacture of industrial hemp or commercial products containing industrial hemp. This emergency ordinance that was approved by Town Council temporarily suspends for 180 days the processing and approval of any application or permit related to the operation of a business engaged in the activity described previously to allow for the preparation and adoption of appropriate regulations.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Toborg, Williams)

Green Acres Tributary Improvements - Intergovernmental Agreement
Town Council approved an agreement during this meeting’s Consent Agenda with 470 Compark, LLC to provide engineering design funds to the Town for improvements to Green Acres Tributary, which is located on the Compark South property.

The funds will be used to design improvements to the Green Acres Tributary located on the Compark South property. Design and construction of the improvements is an obligation of the developer and providing these funds to the District satisfies this Town requirement.

The Town, which has committed to a policy of pursuing the annexation of enclaves, proposes an enclave annexation of the KOA Property. The purpose of this resolution, which was approved by Town Council, was to provide notice of the date that the proposed ordinance to annex the subject property into the Town will be considered (Aug. 5, 2019). Town Council will also consider an ordinance to zone the KOA Property as A-Agricultural consistent with current Douglas County zoning during the Aug. 5 meeting.

Drainage Easements - County Meadows Square and Stroh Crossing
Town Council approved four separate resolutions accepting the conveyance of drainage easement covering drainage improvements proposed with site plans for the following properties: Lot 2, Country Meadows Square, 3rd Amendment; Lot 5, Block 10, Stroh Crossing Filing No. 1, Amendment No. 1; Lot 6, Block 10, Stroh Crossing Filing No. 1, Amendment No. 1; and Lot 7, Block 10, Stroh Crossing Filing No. 1, Amendment No. 1. 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 improvements proposed with the easement will be the maintenance responsibility of the property owner.
