PUBLIC HEARINGS AND SECOND READINGS

Public Hearings


Anthology North - Segments 1B/1C Preliminary Plan 
Town Council approved a pair of applications related to the Anthology North Planned Development, the largest remaining development site in the Town, located in the southwest area of Town. The applicant, E5X Management, submitted Preliminary Plan applications for Segments 1B and 1C incorporating a total of 860 detached single-family lots, 72 attached single-family (townhome) lots, 106 attached single-family (duplex) lots, parks with a total area of 9.35 acres and open space with a total area of 60.5 acres. The Town Council approval of the Preliminary Plans will advance the project design, but does not formally create lots and supporting improvements. The approvals will enable the applicant to proceed to final design and prepare final plats consistent with the previously approved Sketch and Preliminary Plans. The final plats, when approved, will be filed/recorded with Douglas County once all required security for public improvements have been provided to create official lots of record and trigger the required construction of supporting improvements such as roads, stormwater infrastructure and parks. In addition to the Preliminary Plans, Town Council approved an amendment to the existing Annexation Agreement and Partial Waiver Resolution that will allow deferment of construction of the required multi-use sidewalk on the west side of Chambers Road to a future date when the property owner and their development partner obtain approval for and begin development on the west side of Chambers Road in Segments 2 or 3.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Chambers Highpoint and Compark 
Town Council approved a Minor Development Plat (MDP) and Subdivision Agreement for Chambers Highpoint Filing No. 1 and a First Amendment to the Compark Village South Filing No. 1 Subdivision Improvement Agreement (SIA). The applicant, Compark 190 LLC, owns this undeveloped, 44.35-acre property located within the Chambers Highpoint Planned Development (PD) at the southwestern corner of the intersection of E-470 and Chambers Road. The approved MDP creates three lots and six tracts to support the required infrastructure and initial superblock lots consistent with the PD zoning. Proposed Lot 1 is 11.22 acres and is located within Planning Area A for multi-family residential use. Proposed Lot 2 is 3.62 acres and is located within Planning Area B for office/light industrial use. Proposed Lot 3 is 9.73 acres and is located within Planning Area C for highway commercial use. The applicant required an SIA to secure the public improvements associated with the MDP. In addition, the property owner of the adjacent Compark Village South PD required an amendment to the Compark Village South Filing No. 1 SIA to formalize the shared obligations between the two developments. This results from the Annexation Agreements for the two properties having several shared obligations for infrastructure that require coordination and reimbursement.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

CONSENT AGENDA

First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for March 21


Dransfeldt Road Extension Project Design Cost Sharing Agreement 
This proposed ordinance would approve the Third Amendment to an existing Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with Douglas County regarding the advancement of the proposed Dransfeldt Road extension project design effort. This IGA amendment is needed to formalize negotiations and jointly fund the continuing design effort. This proposed project, which would extend Dransfeldt Road to the south of Twenty Mile Road, over Cherry Creek, and connect it to Motsenbocker Road. The 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 needs to be coordinated with Douglas County.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Traffic Signal Cost Sharing Agreement 
This proposed ordinance would approve an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with Douglas County regarding the ownership, maintenance and operation of traffic signals at and near shared jurisdictional boundaries. The IGA is needed to formalize negotiations to allow for implementation of a responsive traffic signal control system on Lincoln Avenue. The responsive traffic signal control system utilizes infrastructure to actively count the amount of traffic and respond by changing signal timing plans to better match traffic patterns.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Secondary Family Space Building Code Amendment
Prior to December 2014, the Town’s Building Code did not permit the installation of cooking facilities in separate locations within a single-family detached home without the required firewall. On Dec. 1, 2014, Town Council approved an ordinance to allow additional cooking facilities located within an existing single-family, detached home as part of a “secondary family space.” The purpose of this proposed amendment to the 2014 Ordinance is to clarify that the secondary family space is only allowed in the basement, and the secondary family space cannot be larger than 40% of the main dwelling unit, including the basement, based on the original square footage of the single‐family detached dwelling, when initially constructed.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

2022 Annual Budget Adjustments
Budget adjustments for the current year are submitted to Town Council for consideration several times per year, as needed. Adjustments fall into two categories: carryovers and supplemental amendments. Carryovers are the reappropriation of unspent, budgeted funds from the prior year into the current year. They include multi-year capital projects for which the full project cost is budgeted in the first year. Supplemental amendments consist of additional or new appropriation requests that were not anticipated at the time when the budget was developed. Proposed adjustments for this item include $35,113,314 in carryover expenditures, $917,500 in supplemental expenditures and $3,500 in supplemental revenue. 
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)
