CONSENT AGENDA

First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for July 11


Parks, Recreation and Open Space Advisory Committee
The Parks, Recreation and Open Space Department is seeking approval to establish a Parks, Recreation and Open Space Advisory Commission by amending Title 12 of the Parker Municipal Code. Staff received direction to proceed with the establishment of this advisory commission to foster, implement and participate in providing opportunities for recreational experiences for the Parker community.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage)

Challenger Park Estates Development Zoning Amendment
The property owner, The Solomon Foundation, is proposing an amendment to the Challenger Park Estates Planned Development (PD) zoning to incorporate an additional design requirement(s) with the permitted height standard in the Neighborhood Commercial Planning Area. The Planning Area is located at the northeast corner of Jordan Road and Pine Lane. The PD zoning currently designates two distinct planning areas as Commercial: the Neighborhood Commercial Area and the Mixed-Use Employment/Professional Office Area. The Solomon Foundation Campus and SECORCares occupy the entire Neighborhood Commercial Planning Area. The Southeast Christian Church occupies the entire Mixed-Use Employment/Professional Office Planning Area. The PD zoning currently has the same use and development standards for the Neighborhood Commercial Area and the Mixed-Use Employment/Professional Office Planning Area. Proposed amendments to the PD zoning include: 1. Adding additional development standards including setbacks and stepbacks for building height greater than 35 feet; 2. Separating the use and development standards for each Planning Area; and 3. Correcting the legal description from the 2003 approval and ordinance.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage)

Public School Construction Memorandum of Understanding
The Town of Parker has historically been a party to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the State of Colorado to provide construction plan review, permitting and field inspection services for public schools. The Community Development Department Building Division wishes to enter into a new MOU for pre-qualified building departments for public school construction in order to continue to provide the aforementioned services for public schools.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage)

Motions, Contracts, Resolutions, Proclamations, Agreements


Acceptance of Artwork Donation from The Parker Shoppes LLC
Town Council passed a resolution accepting the donation from The Parker Shoppes of a 10-foot tall statue of a gnome to be used in a public space. Under Section 15.7 of the Town’s Home Rule Charter, Town Council may receive or refuse gifts and donations on behalf of the Town. Staff is working to find a location in a public space for the gnome, such as a park.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage)

Contracts Over $100,000
Two contracts over the amount of $100,000 were awarded by Town Council: 

1. A purchase agreement with Envirotech, Inc. in the amount of $149,796.92 for 1,274 tons of Ice Slicer solid deicer material, utilizing a Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) contract award. This deicing material aids in the removal of snow and ice from street surfaces. The Town has used the material for nearly 10 years.

2. A modified contract with Rumler Civil Construction, Inc. in the amount of $2,229,537.20 ($80,000 additional funding) for the Parker Road (SH83) Multi-Use Trail (West Side) Project. Since the Town originally awarded this contract in June 2021, it has experienced COVID-related impacts, including material supply chain issues/delays and labor shortages, which increased the project duration. This resulted in additional traffic control inspection and overhead costs. Additionally, due to a mistake in the plans that was not caught during the review by the Town or CDOT, the plans failed to capture the need for asphalt patching underneath the guardrail along Parker Road, which was needed. Additional utility potholing was completed to safely locate utilities along the corridor to limit potential damage that was not anticipated in the project plans. This was due to new utility infrastructure that was installed after the plans were originally assembled. While this has been a challenging project for a variety of reasons, a contract modification was needed to adjust the contract amount required to complete this additional project work. The project is nearing substantial completion and is anticipated to be wrapped up within the next month.

Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage)
