MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

 

 

Monday, December 23, 2013

 

LAND USE HEARING

 

The Board of County Commissioners met at 3:00 p.m. with Rob Helmick, Senior Planner. Chair Johnson presided and Commissioner Donnelly was present. Also present were: Clint Jones, Engineering Department; Doug Ryan, Health & Environment Department; Karin Madson, Terry Gilbert, and Savanah Benedick, Planning Department; Jeannine Haag, County Attorney’s Office; and Dana Polley, Deputy Clerk.

 

Chair Johnson opened the hearing with the Pledge of Allegiance, and explained that the two items on today’s agenda are on consent and will not be discussed unless requested by the Board, staff, or members of the audience:

 

1.         GLACIER VIEW MEADOWS FILING LOTS 31 & 32 LOT CONSOLIDATION AND EASEMENT VACATION, FILE #13-S3192: This is a request to amend the plat of Lots 31 and 32 of the Glacier View Meadows 12th Filing, to consolidate the lots into one lot and vacate the 20-foot utility easement located along the common lot line.

 

Both properties are located in the Glacier View Meadows, 12th Filing just northeast of the corner of Meadow Mountain Drive and Turkey Roost Drive.  The Glacier View Meadows 12th Filing was recorded in 1980.  Consolidating the lots will create one lot that is 3.13 acres in size.  An easement vacation is also proposed for the existing 20-foot utility easement along the common lot line of these two lots.

 

Staff finds that the proposed Lot Consolidation of Lots 31 & 32 of the Glacier View Meadows 12th Filing will not adversely affect any neighboring properties or any County agency.  The consolidation will not result in any additional lots. Staff is in support of vacating the easement that would go through the middle of the resulting lot if not vacated.  Staff finds that, with the conditions as listed below, the request meets the requirements of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

 

Staff recommends Approval of the Lot Consolidation of Lots 31 & 32 of the Glacier View Meadows 12th Filing and vacation of the 20’ utility easement located on the common lot line, File #13-S3192, subject to the following conditions:

 

1.    All conditions of approval shall be met and the final resolution recorded by June 23, 2014 or this approval shall be null and void.

 

2.    The vacation of the 20’ utility easement and the reconfiguration of the lots lines shall be finalized at such time when the findings and resolution of the County Commissioners is recorded. 

 

3.    The resultant lot is subject to any and all covenants, deed restrictions, or other conditions that apply to the original lots.

 

2.         EDDY APPEAL, FILE #13-PSP0048:   This is an appeal to Section 4.3.10.H.2.c. to allow a detached Accessory Living Area to be 1200 sq. ft. rather than the allowed 800 sq. ft. The ALA regulations allow the accessory unit to be up to 800 square feet or 40% of the main house square footage exclusive of basements and garages, not to exceed 800 sq. ft.  The existing residence on the property is currently being renovated and enlarged from 1284 sq. ft to 2156 sq. ft. The proposed accessory living area will be designed to be architecturally compatible with the existing 1910 house.  The applicants have indicated that the dwelling will be occupied by their aged parents. As part of the renovation and construction of the Accessory Living Area the current on-site septic systems will be abandoned and replaced with a connection to public sewer.  The Public Site Plan review portion of this application was processed administratively and approved by the Community Development Director on Dec. 3, 2013.   This application is for the size appeal only.

 

Staff finds that the proposal appeal, allowing additional square footage to an Accessory Living Area will:

 

1.    Not subvert the purpose of the standard or requirement.

 

2.         Not be detrimental to the public health, safety or property values in the neighborhood.

 

3.         Not result in increased costs to the general public.

 

4.         Be consistent with the intent and purpose of the Code.
