Town Council Meeting Update

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 that week's Town Council Meeting.

PUBLIC HEARINGS AND SECOND READINGS


Public Hearings


Coyle/Perkins Property Annexation and Zoning
Town Council approved three items resulting in the annexation and zoning of a 33.4-acre parcel of land known as the Coyle/Perkins Property. This property, located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Stroh Road and Crowfoot Valley Road, is largely undeveloped except for a small single-family house and several accessory structures that are remnants of previous agricultural uses. The location is a major gateway into the Town from the south along the Crowfoot Valley Road corridor. The approved zoning will permit a maximum of 343 residential dwelling units, more than eight acres of commercial development and several acres of parks, trails and open space. The PD zoning will also permit a maximum residential density of 12 dwelling units per acre, which is less than the residential density of 20 dwelling units per acre permitted by the Stroh Ranch PD to the north. The Parker 2035 Master Plan designates the subject property as part of a Neighborhood Center planned for future mixed-use development with commercial use and higher density residential use that is intended to serve as a transition to the existing (and planned) residential neighborhoods in the vicinity of the site.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Rivero, Wilks)

Newlin Crossing Filing No. 2
Town Council approved three items related to a final plat for Newlin Crossing Filing 2, which is part of the Newlin Crossing Planned Development (PD) that has been approved for future mixed-use development. The applicant, Lennar Colorado, LLC, submitted a final plat to create 109 residential lots along with required parks, open space and trails. The final plat required a public hearing due to the vacation of a public right-of-way tract that was previously dedicated to the Town. The subject property is located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Mainstreet and Chambers Road, adjacent to the Carousel Farms and Stonegate residential neighborhoods. The proposed lots will be developed with detached, single-family homes, while the tracts are unbuildable until the applicant submits a future replat application to create additional lots for residential development.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Rivero, Wilks)

Ordinances


Dransfeldt Road Widening Project - Right-of-Way Purchase and Sale Agreement
Town Council approved an ordinance agreeing to a Right-of-Way Purchase and Sale Agreement for property from Savanna Properties LLC for a Portion of Lot 22A, Block 1, Twenty Mile Village Filing No. 2 for the Dransfeldt Road Widening Project. This project will construct roadway and sidewalk improvements to Dransfeldt Road between Pony Express Drive and Mainstreet. The roadway will be widened from a 4-lane section to a 5-lane section, including the addition of one new southbound thru/right-turn lane. Additionally, sidewalks and curb ramps will be reconstructed along the widened section to increase pedestrian mobility and ADA compliance.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Rivero, Wilks)

Contracts Over $500,000


Hilltop Road/Canterberry Parkway Area Improvements Project Contract Modification
Town Council approved a contract modification with 53 Corporation, LLC for the Hilltop Road and Canterberry Parkway Area Improvements Project (CIP22-039). The contract was originally awarded for $989,915.50 and was increased by $498,705.00 for a revised contract total of $1,488,220.50. Due to budget and schedule concerns, a portion of the project consisting of stormwater pond improvements was removed from the contract. On June 20, 2023, Town Council approved a resolution to negotiate a fee for the remaining project improvements with a single contractor, 53 Corporation, LLC. The negotiated fee is less than the design engineer’s opinion of probable cost, and staff considers it a fair and reasonable price. This contract amendment will allow 53 Corporation, LLC to move forward with scheduling and executing the construction of the pond and drainage improvements.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Rivero, Wilks)
