CONSENT AGENDA

First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for May 4

  • Development Excise Tax Credit - Regional Recreational Trails and Facilities
    Last year, Town Council adopted an ordinance imposing impact fees on development within Parker. The imposition of these fees by the Town also included provisions for impact fee credits, including credits for recreational trails and facilities that were regional in nature. At that same time, Town Council also adopted an ordinance that would repeal the impact fee ordinance if the voters approved an increase in the development excise tax at the November election. Parker electors did approve that excise tax increase, and as a result the impact fee ordinance was repealed. This ordinance would amend the Parker Municipal Code to provide for a credit to the residential development excise tax for regional recreational trails and facilities. The credit is structured almost identically to the one that was provided for under the previous impact fee ordinance, although the definitions have been revised to more specifically address what types of trails and facilities will qualify for the credit.
    Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

  • Rezone Request - Mark Six Business Subdivision Property
    The subject property, Mark Six Business Subdivision, is a developed property located on Clarke Road east of Dransfeldt Road. The applicant, John Kopasz, has submitted an application to rezone the Mark Six Office/Warehouse Condominiums from C-Commercial to LI-Light Industrial. The intent of the rezoning application is to allow light industrial uses consistent with the Parker 2035 Master Plan. The proposal responds to and takes the character of this area, which is predominantly light industrial in nature, into account.
    Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

  • Town Emergency Meetings - Planning Commission / Special Licensing Authority
    The Parker Code authorizes the Town Council to conduct meetings by telephone, electronically or by other means of communication when meeting in person is not prudent due to a health pandemic or other extraordinary emergency affecting the Town. This section of the Code does not provide the same authority to the Planning Commission or the Special Licensing Authority. This proposed ordinance would extend this authority to the Planning Commission and the Special Licensing Authority to address the Town’s business during a health pandemic or other extraordinary emergencies.
    Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

    4. A professional services agreement with RS&H in the amount of $128,849.80 for Phase 1 (conceptual design) of the Dransfeldt Road Extension Project planned between Twenty Mile Road and Motsenbocker Road. The Town has been contemplating the extension of Dransfeldt Road south of Twenty Mile Road, over Cherry Creek, connecting to Motsenbocker Road for over a decade. This proposed roadway is an important component to the Parker area’s long-term roadway transportation plan. Due to a portion of the proposed roadway extension being located in unincorporated Douglas County, the project is being coordinated with the County. After several years of discussions with County staff, the Town and County are ready to move forward with the conceptual/preliminary design of this roadway extension.
    Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams
