Approved Land Use Application Time Extensions
The Town Administrator issued a series of Emergency Orders in 2020 to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the Town, state and country are recovering from the pandemic, staff proposed several amendments to the Parker Municipal Code to establish a formal transition from the emergency orders back to pre-pandemic Code requirements. Town Council approved this ordinance that allows the Planning Director to grant administrative extensions of approved land use applications to Dec. 31, 2021.

Temporary Sign Registration Requirements
The Town Administrator issued a series of Emergency Orders in 2020 to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the Town, state and country are recovering from the pandemic, staff proposes several amendments to the Parker Municipal Code to establish a formal transition from the emergency orders back to pre-pandemic Code requirements. Town Council approved this ordinance that temporarily removes the requirement for temporary signs to be registered from June 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021, in order to assist local businesses in their transition to normal operations.

Prairie Dog Management
Town Council approved an ordinance that amends the Town’s prairie dog management ordinance to provide a 180-day extension of approval where an applicant undertakes relocation. It also requires that humane extermination occur not less than 30 days after Town approval of a development application. This amendment was in follow-up to Town Council direction given at the March 29, 2021 Study Session after discussion of the issue with staff.

Ordinances Continued to July 12

Planning Department Adjustments
The Town Administrator issued a series of Emergency Orders in 2020 to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the Town, state and country are recovering from the pandemic, staff proposes several amendments to the Parker Municipal Code to establish a formal transition from the emergency orders back to pre-pandemic Code requirements. This proposed ordinance would exclude certain temporary site plan changes, such as marking pick-up/delivery parking spaces, from the requirement for Site Plan Adjustment approval by the Town. If approved, this ordinance will be in effect through Sept. 30, 2021. Town Council elected to continue this item to the July 12 meeting in order to remand the ordinance back to the Planning Commission to consider a proposed change that includes and addresses temporary patios for businesses.
Approved 4-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Poage)

Planning Commission Appointments
Town Council passed a resolution appointing one regular member (Anthony Matthews) and one alternate member (Nicholas Metz) to the Parker Planning Commission.

Liquor Code Violations
Senate Bill 20-110, which was enacted last year, authorizes the Town as a local liquor licensing authority to impose a fine for a liquor code violation without suspending or revoking a liquor license. Approval of this proposed ordinance would authorize the Special Licensing Authority to impose fines, as provided by the Senate bill.
Approved 4-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Poage)
