Want to know what happened at the most recent Town Council Meeting? We have you covered! Recaps will be posted on ParkerOnline.org the day after every Town Council Meeting.

PUBLIC HEARINGS AND SECOND READINGS

Public Hearings


Twenty Mile Village Gas Station Use by Special Review Request
Town Council approved a Use by Special Review Request by applicant LAI Design Group to allow a gasoline service station with a proposed commercial building at the southeast corner of Twenty Mile Road and Pony Express Drive in the Clarke Farms Planned Development (PD). The PD zoning permits gasoline pumps with a convenience store subject to the special review process. The subject property was previously developed with a miniature golf facility that was approved in 2002 but is now unused and abandoned. The applicant proposes to demolish the existing miniature golf facility and replace it with a gasoline service station and commercial building for a convenience store and other commercial uses in the multi-tenant structure. 
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Avalon Bay/Coyle Annexation Eligibility
Town Council passed a resolution finding that an Annexation Petition by applicant Avalon Bay Communities, Inc., for a 33.4-acre parcel of land known as the Coyle property at the southeast corner of the intersection of Stroh Road and Crowfoot Valley Road is eligible for annexation into the Town. The approval of the resolution sets a Nov. 7 public hearing date to consider the Annexation Petition along with a  Rezoning Application. The Town identified the Coyle property as a candidate for future annexation through the annual Three-Mile Plan and the Parker 2035 Master Plan. Therefore, the proposed annexation is consistent with the Town’s land use policy as expressed in both plans. 
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Compark Village South Replat and Subdivision Improvement Agreement
Town Council approved a request by applicant Century at Compark Village South LLC, for a  Replat of Tract B, Compark Village South Filing No. 1, Amendment 1, to create a buildable lot and drainage tract. The site is located on the south side of future Belford Avenue to the west of Chambers Road. In addition, the Replat vacates a portion of right-of-way (ROW) that was dedicated to the Town for future access but is no longer necessary. The processing of Replats is typically administrative, however, the need to vacate .025 acres of ROW triggers the requirement for Town Council approval at a public hearing. Town Council also approved a Subdivision Improvement Agreement (SIA) to secure the public improvements associated with the Replat.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Parker Downs Use by Special Review Request
Town Council approved a Use by Special Review Request by applicant MHLK Properties to  permit the repurposing of an existing building with a proposed auto service and repair use on a commercial property located at 18910 Longs Way, between Dransfeldt Road and Parker Road. The original site plan for the subject property was approved in 1999 and included two identical commercial buildings. The building that the applicant proposes for auto and truck repair use was originally occupied by Kwal Paints and then Ponderosa Petroleum. The applicant plans to repurpose the building that Ponderosa Petroleum occupied and operate Hoover Mercedes on the property for the repair and service of Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

CONSENT AGENDA

First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for Sept. 19


License Plate Recognition Sharing Detection Data and Hotlists Memorandum of Understanding
Town staff is requesting that Town Council approve a Memorandum of Understanding with various law enforcement agencies to share information obtained from the Town of Parker Police Department’s recently purchased license plate readers for some of its patrol vehicles. Automated license plate reader (ALPR) systems combine high-speed cameras and sophisticated software to capture and convert license plate images into data that can be compared with information in other databases. These high-tech devices allow the Parker Police Department to compare plate numbers against those of stolen cars or cars being driven by persons suspected of being involved in criminal activities. Access to this database and the information contained within the database could assist in pursuing certain criminal investigations.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Chambers Road North of Belford Avenue Right-of-Way
The Town of Parker is proposing to annex the Chambers Road right-of-way (ROW) from E-470 south to the future Belford Avenue that is currently under construction. The Chambers Highpoint Annexation Agreement requires the construction of Belford Avenue west of Chambers Road and a new traffic signal at the intersection of Chambers Road and Belford Avenue. The section of Chambers Road adjacent to Chambers Highpoint PD, including the intersection of Chambers Road and Belford Avenue, is still in Douglas County. The County has requested that the Town assume responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the new traffic signal.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Cherry Creek South Metropolitan District No. 4 IGA
