PUBLIC COMMENT

PUBLIC COMMENT

All right. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation 00:04:00

Agriculture district, for all those who have signed the petition and support, they are very adamant about this and I believe that 00:05:47
this would be the best for our citizens to not have to go through an individual process like they've been presented with. Someone 00:05:52
passes out Commissioner saying that doesn't follow our rules which suggests that we are not suggest say that we have to have these 00:05:58

New business item number one. Consider petition for abatement or refund of Taxes for account number R 3725405, Vivid Holdings LLC. 00:14:55
Good morning, Miss. Assessor. 00:15:01
Morning Commissioners, Brenda down as well County Assessor. I have two abatement petitions for you this morning and I will be 00:15:08
requesting approval on both of them. The first of which is R 3725405, Vivid Holdings LLC and it is for year 2023. This property 00:15:14
includes 6 investor reflects garage warehouses. They total 34,542 square feet and they sit on 2 acres of land located in Decono in 00:15:21
the Grand Divide Business Park. This account was not appealed during the normal appeal period and the agent filed this abatement 00:15:27
instead. 00:15:34
Therefore, I'm recommending A partial approval of this abatement petition and requesting that you set the 2023 value at 3.9 00:16:13
million after making the 2023 legislative value reduction of 30,000. That is noted in parentheses on the abatement petition. It 00:16:19
alters the final calculation of tax from $165,433.53. 00:16:25
To $126,277.66 resulting in an abatement of $39,155.87. So any questions for Brenda? 00:16:32
So the proper motion to his proven part Mr. Chair, I would move that we approve in part the petition for abatement of refund of 00:16:45
taxes for account number R 3725405 for Vivid Holdings, LLC. There's a motion to approve in part the refund of taxes for account 00:16:53
number Partial refund of taxes for Account number R 37254057 by Commissioner Buck Further discussion. 00:17:01
None. All those in favor signify by saying aye, aye. All opposed. Same sign, and that item passes unanimously. 00:17:11
Item number two, consider Petition for Abatement of Refund of Taxes for Account number R 895-9229, RKB Inc. 00:17:18
Due to the market approach and also reconsidering the cost approach with a small amount of additional depreciation, we were able 00:18:05
to reach an agreement with the agent that a fair value is $234.97 a square foot or 12,630,000. Therefore, for texture 2023, I am 00:18:14
requesting A partial approval by adjusting the actual value from $13,028,310 to $12,630,000. So after making the required 2023 00:18:23
legislative value reduction of 30,000, as you'll see noted in parentheses, the final tax will go from 500 and six $76,447.82. 00:18:33
To $558,783.38, which is an abatement of $17,664.44. Excellent. Any questions for Brendan? Yes. Is this also an in part? It is 00:18:42
also in part. OK, thank you. Hold on. I'll move them to approve the tax payment in part. 00:18:50
All right. There's a motion from commissioner saying for approval of the tax abatement in part for R 8959229 Second, by 00:19:00
Commissioner James, further discussion and then all in favor signify by saying aye, aye, I'll oppose. Same sign and that passes 4 00:19:06
to 0. Thank you, Brenda. Have a wonderful day. 00:19:11

Item number four, consider 2024 funding award allocations for various projects through Community Development Block Grant CBG 00:20:13

Good morning, Elizabeth, and good morning, Nick. 00:20:23
Good morning, commissioners with Smith, Rafferty, Planning Department, CDBG manage, CDBG department also here with the the Chair 00:20:27
and Cynthia. 00:20:32
Umm, the Chair of our CDBG Advisory Committee, Nick Wharton and Cynthia Martin, also CDBG and analyst and we are really happy to 00:20:38
present to you today the 2024 allocations for our program. 00:20:45
The county for 2024. We hadn't officially received our number or our grant agreement yet for our allocation, so the advisory 00:20:55
committee did a great job of trying to make selections based on previous year's funding amounts that we have. 00:21:03
Are received. We did agree. They did agree unanimously on April 3rd to award funding to recommend award of your your permission 00:21:11
for funding to the Town of Arch for an infrastructure improvements project for $240,000. The Town of Firestone for $50,000 for 00:21:19
their day of service out of the Town of Eaton for their ADA ramp improvement project. Phase two 180,000 The City of Evans for ADA 00:21:27
ramp project in 181,000. 00:21:35
And the town of Platteville for their park, playground, ABA enhancements of 96,000, obviously we didn't, we we did receive two 00:21:44
more applications. We don't know, we didn't know what the remaining balance would be. And so we would go back to the advisory 00:21:50
committee next month to further consideration now that we have a number that we can work from to get their recommendation on the 00:21:56
remaining projects and then we bring that back to you as well for approval for that, but for right now to get our annual action 00:22:02
plan started. 00:22:08
So in that process going with HUD, we want to present these projects to you and and just obviously this is a a board that you guys 00:22:15
had a committee you had appointed. And so we're really excited that Nick could join us today to do this presentation to you for 00:22:21
your approval on these projects. 00:22:27
Excellent. Next in here. Do you have anything to add? 00:22:34
Just my appreciation for the our wonderful advisory committee, they're really all excellent folks and it's another advantage 00:22:39
besides just helping us to make these decisions is just a camaraderie or just the ability for some of the small communities who 00:22:50
are have a board, a representative you know on our board to get together and and you know talk about common issues and kind of. 00:23:00
More relaxed setting, so I do appreciate that, Mister. 00:23:11
Wharton, yes, Just to thank the commissioners for appointing us to the Board and we do love working on what we do. And thank you 00:23:17
for your consideration for our request. Absolutely any questions. 00:23:23
Thanks for getting it done. Move to approve the resolution second. 00:23:31
We have a motion from Commissioner James for approval of the funding the resolution second by Commissioner Puck. Any further 00:23:34
discussion? 00:23:37
I would just say thank you, Excellent job. I know these projects, they mean a lot to the local communities when we get them out. 00:23:41
I know it was challenging when we don't have a dollar value for what we're getting in trying to. 00:23:49
I guess project right what we're going to receive. You guys did an excellent job and you really. 00:23:54
Tried to hit all the projects that we had coming in. So great job. And with that I call to call all those in favor signify by 00:24:00
saying aye, aye all opposed same sign and that allocation approves unanimously. Thank you very much for your hard work. Thank you. 00:24:07
Item number 5 Consider Contract to Buy and Sell Real estate, 3109 35th Ave. Greeley Lots three and Five and authorized chair to 00:24:16
sign all necessary documents 3109 LLC for the purchase of the two watts, Lot 3 and Lot 5 of the US was. 00:24:25
Communications first filing first replant in the city of Grayling it's at that address. These are the two lots that are next to 00:24:35
adjacent to the property that the county already owns that use it for our backup 911 site necessary for the purposes of putting up 00:24:45
some new buildings parking lot and two things one is we had concerns about the fact that it was part of a. 00:24:56
I called a homeowners association, but it's an association. 00:25:08
So one of the conditions of this agreement is that they extricate that those two lots from that agreement. So that has to be done 00:25:13
before we close. Second thing is that we have an agreement for the purpose of. 00:25:21
Sharing costs as to the maintenance of the entrance Rd. So it's it's almost like a driveway and I think that seems fair with the 00:25:30
US West Communications and I think there's one other lot owner. So we'll get that done that needs to be done before we close also. 00:25:38
So those are the two requirements. 00:25:46
OK. Any additional questions for Bruce regarding this? 00:25:55
All right. All those in and look for a motion, I guess bring it back to the move to approve the resolution second. 00:26:01
Motion by Commissioner James to approve the resolution to purchase the real estate at 3109 35th Ave. Building lots three and five, 00:26:07
and for the chair sign all necessary documents. Second by Commissioner Buck Further discussion. 00:26:13
None of those in favor signify by saying aye, aye, all opposed. Same sign and that passes unanimously. 00:26:20
That concludes new business and brings us to planning Planning item number one. Second reading of Code Ordinance 2024-04. In the 00:26:31
matter of repealing and reenacting with amendments Chapter 23 Zoning of the Well County Code Accessory Dwelling Units and R1 00:26:37
Revisions moved. Read by technical only. Second motion by Commissioner James, read by title only, Second by Commissioner Buck. Any 00:26:43
discussion. 00:26:50
None all in favor signify by saying aye aye. I'll oppose same sign and that will be read by title One this Code Ordinance 2024904 00:26:57
in the matter of repealing and reenacting with amendments Chapter 23 of the Zoning of the Well County Code Accessory Dwelling 00:27:03
Units and R1 revisions. 00:27:09
Just a reminder of current timeline up on the screen, the BCC approved first reading on April 22nd. 00:27:50
The Secretary is today the third meeting set for June 3rd. And again, as you guys know, the Board can revise the ordinance at 00:27:56
anytime and decide not to adopt ultimately. Additionally, the hearing dates are subject to change. 00:28:03
And cyber reviews and I2 and I3 zones. They will be added to Article 5, Chapter 21 to be processed by OJ as part of the 241 World 00:28:43
War process by separate ordinance. 00:28:48
Additionally, staff and scheduled a work session for May 22nd, 2024 which is part of third reading to discuss other potential 00:28:54
changes to the ordinance including ability to allow accessory drawing units on some R1 lots that don't have public sewer and 00:29:01
changing the definition regarding to allow the use of tractors. So staff recommends adoption of the ordinance on second reading 00:29:07
and Jason Maxley with the Long Gas Energy Department is here if you have any questions pertaining to the Class 2 changes. 00:29:14
Do you have anything there? 00:29:22
Any questions for planning staff? 00:29:25
All right, what that'll bring that? We have this as a public hearing. So if anybody from the public wishes to come forward and 00:29:28
speak to anything regarding Code Ordinance 2024-04, now is your opportunity. Please come to the podium, state your name and 00:29:35
address for the record, and keep your comments to 3 minutes. Does anybody wish to speak to this matter? 00:29:42
Come on up, man. 00:29:49
All right, that's your. This is your moment. 00:29:54
Address and Laura in Longmont, Warren County. In regards to the Adu. I did a little bit more research and I just wanted to bring a 00:29:59
few things to everybody's attention. This will affect the way it's written. 00:30:06
Partly 70 subdivisions. 00:30:15
That are 0 to 35 acres that are all one zoned with city or district water and a septic system. 00:30:19
As it's written so 70 subdivisions in Weld county will not be able to do 80 years, so I wanted to bring that to your attention and 00:30:29
that starts with a price of $1.00 to $1.3 million homes. 00:30:36
I just think. 00:30:46
Something that should be considered to make that change. 00:30:50
Any questions? 00:30:54
I got the information from the real estate Mrs. system. Thank you for your comments. So I have questions. Yes. So back to, I'm 00:30:57
trying to remember what you had said before and a change from today. Can you just basically that properties that are zoned are one 00:31:05
with a septic are not allowed to have Adus? 00:31:13
Right. We should allow those. What you're saying, Yes, I'm saying we should allow it because by not allowing it, there are 70 00:31:22
subdivisions just in in Weld County alone that would be affected by not being able to have ADS and that makes sense especially if. 00:31:30
It's found that the septic could handle those, right? That makes a lot of sense to me. And even if it's found that the subject 00:31:38
can't with the property size, you can have a self-contained Adu with a self-contained septic tank and a self-contained it can be 00:31:45
self-contained versus a city lot where it cannot. 00:31:52
Right. And it's it's not much different than even putting an add-on to a current home that would have a septic with the same 00:31:59
dimensions. So somebody wants to serve their mother-in-law, it's often called mother-in-law units, but sometimes it's for disabled 00:32:06
children. It's for people taken care of to live with the family and multigenerational issue that is. 00:32:12
It's quite substantial right now just in Walton County where parents are aging, parents are living with kids etcetera, etcetera. 00:32:21
So I I agree with you completely and I would wholeheartedly. 00:32:26
Asked for that common sense measure to be added into this ordinance because again, I think that goes above and beyond maybe even 00:32:32
what the state is requiring. But also that's just a good governance, that's good business to allow that kind of function to occur, 00:32:38
especially again if there's no danger to. 00:32:45
Umm the density isn't going to be as bad like it would be in the cities themselves. You don't have a parking issue or anything 00:33:28
else that's going to create in the city. Basically requiring the city city sewer and city water. Also something else that I 00:33:34
noticed in from the writing of this at State City. 00:33:40
Water. 00:33:46
In Wall County, we have a lot of district water, correct? And that really should be addressed in in the writing of that to not 00:33:49
just say city water, it should be addressed to be city slash district waters or just the ability to provide water, correct? 00:33:57
What the answer is, yeah, I just think 70 subdivisions, you know, across world county that it affects greatly by by saying no, you 00:35:18
can't do this, but everybody in the city can. 00:35:23
It again common sense it doesn't work. 00:35:29
I have to get everybody in my subdivision to agree to change tag and then we have to go through the entire process. And as you 00:36:08
very well know, that's very hard to do to get everybody to agree. So the R1 learning with the septic would be appreciated for all 00:36:14
the 70 subdivisions that are out there, including the largest one is Pelican Lakes. 00:36:21
Largest subdivision you guys have in Royal County, so that's totally affected too. 00:36:28
Anybody else wish to make public comment today? 00:36:34
Towards Code Ordinance 2024-04. 00:36:37
Alright, seeing then I'm getting you. I'm sorry. Jump up here. Don't wait. 00:36:41
How y'all doing? Good. How are you? Please state your name and address for the record. I'm Michelle Smith, 1847 Sherry Ave. I'm 00:36:47
around the east side of Greeley. I was at the meeting last week and I was, I just brought up a concern, I just request, and they 00:36:53
had told me to be able to speak to all refined folks. I have to attend this meeting and I was just wondering, so we have, you 00:36:58
know, a handful of people and you've been in contact who would like to switch to AG. And so is this in regards to this ordinance 00:37:04
or directly to East Green? 00:37:10
Don't mind, let's keep those comments for public comments, which is just directly after this. 00:37:17
That would be the appropriate place for that. I would disagree. This does have to do with this zoning, because this zoning change 00:37:21
came about because of that same topic. However, I think she has the right to speak on this topic on this. Is this about, That's 00:37:29
why I'm asking. The Violent Congress strategy. Excuse me the same, excuse me, is this about code learning and so forth? Is this 00:37:37
specifically about E Greek? No, no, no, it's either. It's finding the way. I'm so sorry. It's just about the application. 00:37:45
You know the fee, if it's about the application of fee, I'd say that's most appropriate for public comment immediately after this. 00:37:53
And we'll address that here just right next. Thank you so much. Thank you. 00:37:58
All right. Anybody else have any comments to make to Code Ordinance 2024-04? 00:38:05
All right. Seeing none, I'll go ahead and close public comment on that matter and bring it back to the board. 00:38:10
Mr. Chair, looking forward to our meeting this Wednesday. I would move that we approve on second reading Code Ordinance 2024-04. 00:38:17
I have a motion from Commissioner James to approve on Second reading Code Ordinance 2024, Dash 04 second by Commissioner Buck 00:38:25
further discussion. 00:38:29
Hearing none roll call vote please. 00:38:35
Mike Raymond, Scott James. What are you saying? Yes, for today, Perry. But Kevin Ross Yes, let the record reflect that passes 4 to 00:38:39
0 today on second reading. 00:38:45
This is this is opportune time. 00:39:24
And I hate to say this, but just state your name and address again. 00:39:29
Ave. so last week to go out and come here and speak to you fine folks and I was just wondering, so you know as each meeting goes 00:39:33
by we're having smaller and smaller groups because inevitably people are getting exhausted. You know coming into these seven 00:39:41
meetings, beating the dead horse and I was just you know, it's. 00:39:49
It's request a request for the application fee to be waived possibly because we're talking about thousands of dollars for a for 00:39:57
serving for the subdivision itself. And for the $3000, we're talking about people that are elderly, 1 income people that have 00:40:05
their businesses on these properties. And you know, like I said, they're seeing individuals who just don't even go through this 00:40:13
process anymore and they're like, you know, how about that? I'll just go and I'll do the R1 extended. 00:40:21
I'm exhausted because people are missing work. For instance, my husband can't take keep consecutively taking days off to, you 00:40:30
know, come to meetings. And so just through consideration if you can for the group of individuals, because we wouldn't have to be 00:40:36
going through this process if this wouldn't have come up. And I'm not saying it's. 00:40:42
Anybody start with just for, you know, consider it maybe for, you know this group, I understand those regulations or whatnot. 00:40:49
So to that. 00:40:59
We, you know, we've had these town halls and and my understanding from getting briefed on this is that is another productive town 00:41:38
hall last week. 00:41:43
Some, you know, comments made-up front, but then everyone realized at the end, right, we have been hearing what we need to do. 00:41:48
Let's submit those applications again, no fees being collected at that moment so that then we can see, OK, do we have 3 applicants 00:41:54
or do we have 100 applicants? 00:41:59
The fees are waived. The fees the money is making. It's intimidating people. Oh gosh, we're going to have to turn this in this 00:42:06
application and then later on we're going to be, you know, we're going to have to figure out. 00:42:13
Who it's just the whole process is intimidating and I feel like it's just lagging on and lagging on and lagging on. Whereas if you 00:42:22
guys do have the jurisdiction that said, look I will go ahead and move up for you guys. Let's get out of this mess. Let's get it 00:42:28
figured out and now instead of having a beautiful people, we have a handful of people. 00:42:34
Appreciate those comments. But then I think of everybody else out there that ever comes to us and wants to do it change his own. 00:42:41
That is not for one subdivision and I appreciate that Michelle. I just think that it's it is being consistent in our code. We are 00:42:49
trying to accommodate and work with your group because you are asking us to change something for you, right. There is staff time 00:42:56
and going through this process if when for instance my realtor told me that this was agriculture, we purchased the property as AG. 00:43:04
So we don't know where somewhere down the line somebody messed up. 00:43:12
I'm not blaming any of you were in the 1964 or anything, but you know if we're talking about 3 grand, but that these these older 00:43:16
people, they don't even want to deal with me. Some of them don't even open doors. 00:43:22
So I really appreciate your time. Thank you so much. Appreciate your comments very much. And by the way, I fully agree we have the 00:43:29
power to do this for you. We have the power to do this for the entire community. If we're not here to serve the common person, we 00:43:34
have lost our way. 00:43:39
That's exactly right. But we the people. So I feel like we're against, we're being helped against that, that if this is our fault 00:43:45
and we're clueless, these are just blue collar you know individuals who are so have their businesses. And so I don't really make 00:43:51
sure this this conversation is very public until this is accomplished for you because this is important. If we don't represent 00:43:57
you, we represent no one. Thank you. 00:44:02
I appreciate it. Thank you. I just felt like in the community. 00:44:08
Town hall that we had, there wasn't a consensus. 00:44:13
When the discussion really came up, it didn't sound like everybody wanted to go forth, so I'm not sure we're all on that same page 00:44:16
to just blanket this thing. So I think the discussion needs to be had. I'm sorry. 00:44:23
Yeah, but either way, we're not talking about, you know, I think that if somebody would stand up and say, look, you guys don't 00:44:31
have to pay that $3000, you would have more people that would be owned the free, OK, so we could just get out and you know what, 00:44:36
I'm not saying free, but we wouldn't be in this predicament. We wouldn't be. There wouldn't be so many concerned people at that 00:44:41
one. 00:44:46
I really think have you been in a meeting with commissioner saying on this I haven't met with commissioners. I this is just 00:45:24
feedback and forth emails and you know here's your schedule like the times that you know to to be able to speak about it. I have 00:45:30
talked to Max about it too as well and we had an interview for that. And you know I have also emailed a couple of people the 00:45:36
applications of the group. I think there's like the answer is no, but the answer is as far as making sure people are aware of 00:45:42
times because they haven't been told. 00:45:48
The community meeting times they were not. Yeah, exactly. They weren't. They weren't told. There's I had several people in my they 00:45:54
have no clue. My girlfriend, for instance, she hasn't. I just told her right now before I came. Nobody knows about these meetings. 00:46:00
So thank you so much. I appreciate it. 00:46:06
All right. Is there additional public comment today? 00:46:13
Come on up Sir, State your name and address. 7557 Road Kind of Road, 100 Wellington and. 00:46:17
Last Wednesday, Rice or commented on the issue with water over E American and. 00:46:27
And chemism, that Overland nursery, but where I was really concerned about was the environment of the EPA and. 00:46:35
Through the years, as a rancher and as a statement of Colorado, I had a lot of interaction with federal agencies through grants 00:46:44
and quarantines, things like this and. 00:46:49
I was a member of the Carotid Cannabis Association, the Colorado Independent Cattlemen's Growers Wildly Livestock Association. And 00:46:54
I never had one positive comment about EPA. And I would just strongly encourage you guys now push back against these ballots 00:47:02
because I don't think they have the best interest of of agricultural livestock or farmers you know in the curb you. So that was 00:47:09
one thing I really encourage you. 00:47:17
The cameras, those are hard working people. 00:47:26
Businessmen and men and women. And I talked with Jan, She's really stressed on this whole deal. Water is a big deal. Yeah, I know 00:47:28
that. So that's one word of encouragement. The other thing I had a question on, I'm not clear on this is Rogue County or sanctuary 00:47:36
county. That's a question I've had and maybe we can address that in the amount of time we have here. But that's something I I 00:47:43
talked with several people up in my area and they definitely are against that. 00:47:50
Happening that we are a sanctuary county. 00:47:58
And I just last time I was here, I told you guys I was going to be praying for you. And I have been, and the scripture I've been 00:48:03
using is Isaiah 11/3. 00:48:09
And it talks about the Holy Spirit. There's seven facets to the Holy Spirit. It's spirit of the Lord, spirit of wisdom, knowledge, 00:48:15
understanding, counsel, might and the fear of the Lord. And I'm going to add safety to that for you guys because you have a big 00:48:24
job. It's not an easy one, but we're counting on you guys to, you know, I think will carry is probably one of the best counties in 00:48:32
the nation to be in. And you guys have big influence on how that's going to continue to go. So thank you very much. 00:48:40
I won't take any more time, but can I have one minute or no? You have a minute and eight seconds. OK, I have to tell you this, the 00:48:49
janitor that's retiring. 00:48:55
I have a friend that owned a really big company and he hired a bunch of cannibals to work. You know, in the, you know, help, the 00:49:03
one condition is you can't eat any of the employees. That's one condition, one condition. So three weeks later, you know 00:49:09
everything kind of go along pretty good. 00:49:14
The 4th week somebody said where is the custodian, where is the custodian? And so then he went to the head cannibal that was 00:49:20
working for him and he said look I told you you can't eat anybody. 00:49:26
And so the custodians or the cannibal said, OK, you know, we'll talk. So he addressed all the cannibals and he said, look, I know 00:49:32
you hate the CEO, the president, board, you know, all these higher up guys, but which one of your numbs call fake chapter? 00:49:40
So the actors do a lot to keep in school. Thank you, Mr. Mosby. And in direct answer to your question, well, county is not a 00:49:48
sanctuary county and we passed on 1st ordinance or ordinance. First reading of an ordinance a couple weeks ago stating as much. 00:49:56
I'll pass that around. All right. Thank you, Sir. Is there any other public comment today? Yes, ma'am. Come on up. 00:50:03
Welcome. Thank you for being here. Don't forget to state your name and address for the record, my name is Carlene Ferguson Smith. 00:50:24
I'm at 1115 E 20th St. in Greeley and I'm here about the East Greeley situation. And I just wanted to agree with Michelle that, 00:50:30
you know, everybody's getting really tired. And I mean, my son and husband didn't come because, you know, they can't take any more 00:50:36
time off work and. 00:50:42
I mean, as I've had to take off so much time from work and it just feels like we're getting nowhere. 00:50:49
And that it would be really nice if you know you guys could waive the fees and. 00:50:56
I guess we just need to reorganize giving. 00:51:04
Getting our applications in because there's still a lot of people that want to do this. 00:51:08
Like I said, it seems like everybody just get getting worn down and thinking that you know you guys aren't going to do anything 00:51:14
and that prove the move to AG so. 00:51:19
That was all I wanted to say. Thank you to me. Thank you so much for coming up and speaking. It's very brave. 00:51:25
OK. Is there any other public comment today? 00:51:31
Seeing none, I'll go ahead and close public comment and this portal. Stand adjourned. It's 9:47 PM. Thank you, everybody for being 00:51:35
here. 00:51:38

similson and e-mail that they would like to have this consideration. Basically I formed it in a resolution that was for Monday, 00:05:23

agricultural. 00:05:41
Agriculture district, for all those who have signed the petition and support, they are very adamant about this and I believe that 00:05:47
this would be the best for our citizens to not have to go through an individual process like they've been presented with. Someone 00:05:52
passes out Commissioner saying that doesn't follow our rules which suggests that we are not suggest say that we have to have these 00:05:58
in a day and 1/2. 00:06:04
Ahead of time to bring these things to the agenda. So I'm going to counter that you've done things like this before, like a 00:06:10
moratorium on PEDs at the last minute, within 15 minutes. So according to the. 00:06:15
Unconstitutional. I disagree, Commissioner. You can disagree all you want, but I'll make a motion to add this resolution. 00:06:23

New business item number one. Consider petition for abatement or refund of Taxes for account number R 3725405, Vivid Holdings LLC. 00:14:55
Good morning, Miss. Assessor. 00:15:01
Morning Commissioners, Brenda down as well County Assessor. I have two abatement petitions for you this morning and I will be 00:15:08
requesting approval on both of them. The first of which is R 3725405, Vivid Holdings LLC and it is for year 2023. This property 00:15:14
includes 6 investor reflects garage warehouses. They total 34,542 square feet and they sit on 2 acres of land located in Decono in 00:15:21
the Grand Divide Business Park. This account was not appealed during the normal appeal period and the agent filed this abatement 00:15:27
instead. 00:15:34
Therefore, I'm recommending A partial approval of this abatement petition and requesting that you set the 2023 value at 3.9 00:16:13
million after making the 2023 legislative value reduction of 30,000. That is noted in parentheses on the abatement petition. It 00:16:19
alters the final calculation of tax from $165,433.53. 00:16:25
To $126,277.66 resulting in an abatement of $39,155.87. So any questions for Brenda? 00:16:32
So the proper motion to his proven part Mr. Chair, I would move that we approve in part the petition for abatement of refund of 00:16:45
taxes for account number R 3725405 for Vivid Holdings, LLC. There's a motion to approve in part the refund of taxes for account 00:16:53
number Partial refund of taxes for Account number R 37254057 by Commissioner Buck Further discussion. 00:17:01
None. All those in favor signify by saying aye, aye. All opposed. Same sign, and that item passes unanimously. 00:17:11
Item number two, consider Petition for Abatement of Refund of Taxes for Account number R 895-9229, RKB Inc. 00:17:18
Due to the market approach and also reconsidering the cost approach with a small amount of additional depreciation, we were able 00:18:05
to reach an agreement with the agent that a fair value is $234.97 a square foot or 12,630,000. Therefore, for texture 2023, I am 00:18:14
requesting A partial approval by adjusting the actual value from $13,028,310 to $12,630,000. So after making the required 2023 00:18:23
legislative value reduction of 30,000, as you'll see noted in parentheses, the final tax will go from 500 and six $76,447.82. 00:18:33

Good morning, commissioners with Smith, Rafferty, Planning Department, CDBG manage, CDBG department also here with the the Chair 00:20:27

Umm, the Chair of our CDBG Advisory Committee, Nick Wharton and Cynthia Martin, also CDBG and analyst and we are really happy to 00:20:38
present to you today the 2024 allocations for our program. 00:20:45
The county for 2024. We hadn't officially received our number or our grant agreement yet for our allocation, so the advisory 00:20:55
committee did a great job of trying to make selections based on previous year's funding amounts that we have. 00:21:03
Are received. We did agree. They did agree unanimously on April 3rd to award funding to recommend award of your your permission 00:21:11
for funding to the Town of Arch for an infrastructure improvements project for $240,000. The Town of Firestone for $50,000 for 00:21:19
their day of service out of the Town of Eaton for their ADA ramp improvement project. Phase two 180,000 The City of Evans for ADA 00:21:27
ramp project in 181,000. 00:21:35
And the town of Platteville for their park, playground, ABA enhancements of 96,000, obviously we didn't, we we did receive two 00:21:44
more applications. We don't know, we didn't know what the remaining balance would be. And so we would go back to the advisory 00:21:50
committee next month to further consideration now that we have a number that we can work from to get their recommendation on the 00:21:56
remaining projects and then we bring that back to you as well for approval for that, but for right now to get our annual action 00:22:02
plan started. 00:22:08
So in that process going with HUD, we want to present these projects to you and and just obviously this is a a board that you guys 00:22:15
had a committee you had appointed. And so we're really excited that Nick could join us today to do this presentation to you for 00:22:21
your approval on these projects. 00:22:27
Excellent. Next in here. Do you have anything to add? 00:22:34
Just my appreciation for the our wonderful advisory committee, they're really all excellent folks and it's another advantage 00:22:39
besides just helping us to make these decisions is just a camaraderie or just the ability for some of the small communities who 00:22:50
are have a board, a representative you know on our board to get together and and you know talk about common issues and kind of. 00:23:00
More relaxed setting, so I do appreciate that, Mister. 00:23:11
Wharton, yes, Just to thank the commissioners for appointing us to the Board and we do love working on what we do. And thank you 00:23:17
for your consideration for our request. Absolutely any questions. 00:23:23
Thanks for getting it done. Move to approve the resolution second. 00:23:31
We have a motion from Commissioner James for approval of the funding the resolution second by Commissioner Puck. Any further 00:23:34
discussion? 00:23:37
I would just say thank you, Excellent job. I know these projects, they mean a lot to the local communities when we get them out. 00:23:41
I know it was challenging when we don't have a dollar value for what we're getting in trying to. 00:23:49
I guess project right what we're going to receive. You guys did an excellent job and you really. 00:23:54
Tried to hit all the projects that we had coming in. So great job. And with that I call to call all those in favor signify by 00:24:00
saying aye, aye all opposed same sign and that allocation approves unanimously. Thank you very much for your hard work. Thank you. 00:24:07
Item number 5 Consider Contract to Buy and Sell Real estate, 3109 35th Ave. Greeley Lots three and Five and authorized chair to 00:24:16
sign all necessary documents 3109 LLC for the purchase of the two watts, Lot 3 and Lot 5 of the US was. 00:24:25
Communications first filing first replant in the city of Grayling it's at that address. These are the two lots that are next to 00:24:35
adjacent to the property that the county already owns that use it for our backup 911 site necessary for the purposes of putting up 00:24:45
some new buildings parking lot and two things one is we had concerns about the fact that it was part of a. 00:24:56
I called a homeowners association, but it's an association. 00:25:08
So one of the conditions of this agreement is that they extricate that those two lots from that agreement. So that has to be done 00:25:13
before we close. Second thing is that we have an agreement for the purpose of. 00:25:21
Sharing costs as to the maintenance of the entrance Rd. So it's it's almost like a driveway and I think that seems fair with the 00:25:30
US West Communications and I think there's one other lot owner. So we'll get that done that needs to be done before we close also. 00:25:38
So those are the two requirements. 00:25:46
OK. Any additional questions for Bruce regarding this? 00:25:55
All right. All those in and look for a motion, I guess bring it back to the move to approve the resolution second. 00:26:01
Motion by Commissioner James to approve the resolution to purchase the real estate at 3109 35th Ave. Building lots three and five, 00:26:07
and for the chair sign all necessary documents. Second by Commissioner Buck Further discussion. 00:26:13
None of those in favor signify by saying aye, aye, all opposed. Same sign and that passes unanimously. 00:26:20
That concludes new business and brings us to planning Planning item number one. Second reading of Code Ordinance 2024-04. In the 00:26:31
matter of repealing and reenacting with amendments Chapter 23 Zoning of the Well County Code Accessory Dwelling Units and R1 00:26:37
Revisions moved. Read by technical only. Second motion by Commissioner James, read by title only, Second by Commissioner Buck. Any 00:26:43
discussion. 00:26:50
None all in favor signify by saying aye aye. I'll oppose same sign and that will be read by title One this Code Ordinance 2024904 00:26:57
in the matter of repealing and reenacting with amendments Chapter 23 of the Zoning of the Well County Code Accessory Dwelling 00:27:03
Units and R1 revisions. 00:27:09
Just a reminder of current timeline up on the screen, the BCC approved first reading on April 22nd. 00:27:50
The Secretary is today the third meeting set for June 3rd. And again, as you guys know, the Board can revise the ordinance at 00:27:56
anytime and decide not to adopt ultimately. Additionally, the hearing dates are subject to change. 00:28:03
And cyber reviews and I2 and I3 zones. They will be added to Article 5, Chapter 21 to be processed by OJ as part of the 241 World 00:28:43
War process by separate ordinance. 00:28:48
Additionally, staff and scheduled a work session for May 22nd, 2024 which is part of third reading to discuss other potential 00:28:54
changes to the ordinance including ability to allow accessory drawing units on some R1 lots that don't have public sewer and 00:29:01
changing the definition regarding to allow the use of tractors. So staff recommends adoption of the ordinance on second reading 00:29:07
and Jason Maxley with the Long Gas Energy Department is here if you have any questions pertaining to the Class 2 changes. 00:29:14
Do you have anything there? 00:29:22
Any questions for planning staff? 00:29:25
All right, what that'll bring that? We have this as a public hearing. So if anybody from the public wishes to come forward and 00:29:28
speak to anything regarding Code Ordinance 2024-04, now is your opportunity. Please come to the podium, state your name and 00:29:35
address for the record, and keep your comments to 3 minutes. Does anybody wish to speak to this matter? 00:29:42
Come on up, man. 00:29:49
All right, that's your. This is your moment. 00:29:54
Address and Laura in Longmont, Warren County. In regards to the Adu. I did a little bit more research and I just wanted to bring a 00:29:59
few things to everybody's attention. This will affect the way it's written. 00:30:06
Partly 70 subdivisions. 00:30:15
That are 0 to 35 acres that are all one zoned with city or district water and a septic system. 00:30:19
As it's written so 70 subdivisions in Weld county will not be able to do 80 years, so I wanted to bring that to your attention and 00:30:29
that starts with a price of $1.00 to $1.3 million homes. 00:30:36
I just think. 00:30:46
Something that should be considered to make that change. 00:30:50
Any questions? 00:30:54
I got the information from the real estate Mrs. system. Thank you for your comments. So I have questions. Yes. So back to, I'm 00:30:57
trying to remember what you had said before and a change from today. Can you just basically that properties that are zoned are one 00:31:05
with a septic are not allowed to have Adus? 00:31:13
Right. We should allow those. What you're saying, Yes, I'm saying we should allow it because by not allowing it, there are 70 00:31:22
subdivisions just in in Weld County alone that would be affected by not being able to have ADS and that makes sense especially if. 00:31:30
It's found that the septic could handle those, right? That makes a lot of sense to me. And even if it's found that the subject 00:31:38
can't with the property size, you can have a self-contained Adu with a self-contained septic tank and a self-contained it can be 00:31:45
self-contained versus a city lot where it cannot. 00:31:52
Right. And it's it's not much different than even putting an add-on to a current home that would have a septic with the same 00:31:59
dimensions. So somebody wants to serve their mother-in-law, it's often called mother-in-law units, but sometimes it's for disabled 00:32:06
children. It's for people taken care of to live with the family and multigenerational issue that is. 00:32:12
It's quite substantial right now just in Walton County where parents are aging, parents are living with kids etcetera, etcetera. 00:32:21
So I I agree with you completely and I would wholeheartedly. 00:32:26
Asked for that common sense measure to be added into this ordinance because again, I think that goes above and beyond maybe even 00:32:32
what the state is requiring. But also that's just a good governance, that's good business to allow that kind of function to occur, 00:32:38
especially again if there's no danger to. 00:32:45
Umm the density isn't going to be as bad like it would be in the cities themselves. You don't have a parking issue or anything 00:33:28
else that's going to create in the city. Basically requiring the city city sewer and city water. Also something else that I 00:33:34
noticed in from the writing of this at State City. 00:33:40
Water. 00:33:46
In Wall County, we have a lot of district water, correct? And that really should be addressed in in the writing of that to not 00:33:49
just say city water, it should be addressed to be city slash district waters or just the ability to provide water, correct? 00:33:57
What the answer is, yeah, I just think 70 subdivisions, you know, across world county that it affects greatly by by saying no, you 00:35:18
can't do this, but everybody in the city can. 00:35:23
It again common sense it doesn't work. 00:35:29
I have to get everybody in my subdivision to agree to change tag and then we have to go through the entire process. And as you 00:36:08
very well know, that's very hard to do to get everybody to agree. So the R1 learning with the septic would be appreciated for all 00:36:14
the 70 subdivisions that are out there, including the largest one is Pelican Lakes. 00:36:21
Largest subdivision you guys have in Royal County, so that's totally affected too. 00:36:28
Anybody else wish to make public comment today? 00:36:34
Towards Code Ordinance 2024-04. 00:36:37
Alright, seeing then I'm getting you. I'm sorry. Jump up here. Don't wait. 00:36:41
How y'all doing? Good. How are you? Please state your name and address for the record. I'm Michelle Smith, 1847 Sherry Ave. I'm 00:36:47
around the east side of Greeley. I was at the meeting last week and I was, I just brought up a concern, I just request, and they 00:36:53
had told me to be able to speak to all refined folks. I have to attend this meeting and I was just wondering, so we have, you 00:36:58
know, a handful of people and you've been in contact who would like to switch to AG. And so is this in regards to this ordinance 00:37:04
or directly to East Green? 00:37:10
Don't mind, let's keep those comments for public comments, which is just directly after this. 00:37:17
That would be the appropriate place for that. I would disagree. This does have to do with this zoning, because this zoning change 00:37:21
came about because of that same topic. However, I think she has the right to speak on this topic on this. Is this about, That's 00:37:29
why I'm asking. The Violent Congress strategy. Excuse me the same, excuse me, is this about code learning and so forth? Is this 00:37:37
specifically about E Greek? No, no, no, it's either. It's finding the way. I'm so sorry. It's just about the application. 00:37:45
You know the fee, if it's about the application of fee, I'd say that's most appropriate for public comment immediately after this. 00:37:53
And we'll address that here just right next. Thank you so much. Thank you. 00:37:58
All right. Anybody else have any comments to make to Code Ordinance 2024-04? 00:38:05
All right. Seeing none, I'll go ahead and close public comment on that matter and bring it back to the board. 00:38:10
Mr. Chair, looking forward to our meeting this Wednesday. I would move that we approve on second reading Code Ordinance 2024-04. 00:38:17
I have a motion from Commissioner James to approve on Second reading Code Ordinance 2024, Dash 04 second by Commissioner Buck 00:38:25
further discussion. 00:38:29
Hearing none roll call vote please. 00:38:35
Mike Raymond, Scott James. What are you saying? Yes, for today, Perry. But Kevin Ross Yes, let the record reflect that passes 4 to 00:38:39
0 today on second reading. 00:38:45
This is this is opportune time. 00:39:24
And I hate to say this, but just state your name and address again. 00:39:29
Ave. so last week to go out and come here and speak to you fine folks and I was just wondering, so you know as each meeting goes 00:39:33
by we're having smaller and smaller groups because inevitably people are getting exhausted. You know coming into these seven 00:39:41
meetings, beating the dead horse and I was just you know, it's. 00:39:49
It's request a request for the application fee to be waived possibly because we're talking about thousands of dollars for a for 00:39:57
serving for the subdivision itself. And for the $3000, we're talking about people that are elderly, 1 income people that have 00:40:05
their businesses on these properties. And you know, like I said, they're seeing individuals who just don't even go through this 00:40:13
process anymore and they're like, you know, how about that? I'll just go and I'll do the R1 extended. 00:40:21
I'm exhausted because people are missing work. For instance, my husband can't take keep consecutively taking days off to, you 00:40:30
know, come to meetings. And so just through consideration if you can for the group of individuals, because we wouldn't have to be 00:40:36
going through this process if this wouldn't have come up. And I'm not saying it's. 00:40:42
Anybody start with just for, you know, consider it maybe for, you know this group, I understand those regulations or whatnot. 00:40:49
So to that. 00:40:59
We, you know, we've had these town halls and and my understanding from getting briefed on this is that is another productive town 00:41:38
hall last week. 00:41:43
Some, you know, comments made-up front, but then everyone realized at the end, right, we have been hearing what we need to do. 00:41:48
Let's submit those applications again, no fees being collected at that moment so that then we can see, OK, do we have 3 applicants 00:41:54
or do we have 100 applicants? 00:41:59
The fees are waived. The fees the money is making. It's intimidating people. Oh gosh, we're going to have to turn this in this 00:42:06
application and then later on we're going to be, you know, we're going to have to figure out. 00:42:13
Who it's just the whole process is intimidating and I feel like it's just lagging on and lagging on and lagging on. Whereas if you 00:42:22
guys do have the jurisdiction that said, look I will go ahead and move up for you guys. Let's get out of this mess. Let's get it 00:42:28
figured out and now instead of having a beautiful people, we have a handful of people. 00:42:34
Appreciate those comments. But then I think of everybody else out there that ever comes to us and wants to do it change his own. 00:42:41
That is not for one subdivision and I appreciate that Michelle. I just think that it's it is being consistent in our code. We are 00:42:49
trying to accommodate and work with your group because you are asking us to change something for you, right. There is staff time 00:42:56
and going through this process if when for instance my realtor told me that this was agriculture, we purchased the property as AG. 00:43:04
So we don't know where somewhere down the line somebody messed up. 00:43:12
I'm not blaming any of you were in the 1964 or anything, but you know if we're talking about 3 grand, but that these these older 00:43:16
people, they don't even want to deal with me. Some of them don't even open doors. 00:43:22
So I really appreciate your time. Thank you so much. Appreciate your comments very much. And by the way, I fully agree we have the 00:43:29
power to do this for you. We have the power to do this for the entire community. If we're not here to serve the common person, we 00:43:34
have lost our way. 00:43:39
That's exactly right. But we the people. So I feel like we're against, we're being helped against that, that if this is our fault 00:43:45
and we're clueless, these are just blue collar you know individuals who are so have their businesses. And so I don't really make 00:43:51
sure this this conversation is very public until this is accomplished for you because this is important. If we don't represent 00:43:57
you, we represent no one. Thank you. 00:44:02
I appreciate it. Thank you. I just felt like in the community. 00:44:08
Town hall that we had, there wasn't a consensus. 00:44:13
When the discussion really came up, it didn't sound like everybody wanted to go forth, so I'm not sure we're all on that same page 00:44:16
to just blanket this thing. So I think the discussion needs to be had. I'm sorry. 00:44:23
Yeah, but either way, we're not talking about, you know, I think that if somebody would stand up and say, look, you guys don't 00:44:31
have to pay that $3000, you would have more people that would be owned the free, OK, so we could just get out and you know what, 00:44:36
I'm not saying free, but we wouldn't be in this predicament. We wouldn't be. There wouldn't be so many concerned people at that 00:44:41
one. 00:44:46
I really think have you been in a meeting with commissioner saying on this I haven't met with commissioners. I this is just 00:45:24
feedback and forth emails and you know here's your schedule like the times that you know to to be able to speak about it. I have 00:45:30
talked to Max about it too as well and we had an interview for that. And you know I have also emailed a couple of people the 00:45:36
applications of the group. I think there's like the answer is no, but the answer is as far as making sure people are aware of 00:45:42
times because they haven't been told. 00:45:48
The community meeting times they were not. Yeah, exactly. They weren't. They weren't told. There's I had several people in my they 00:45:54
have no clue. My girlfriend, for instance, she hasn't. I just told her right now before I came. Nobody knows about these meetings. 00:46:00
So thank you so much. I appreciate it. 00:46:06
All right. Is there additional public comment today? 00:46:13
Come on up Sir, State your name and address. 7557 Road Kind of Road, 100 Wellington and. 00:46:17
Last Wednesday, Rice or commented on the issue with water over E American and. 00:46:27
And chemism, that Overland nursery, but where I was really concerned about was the environment of the EPA and. 00:46:35
Through the years, as a rancher and as a statement of Colorado, I had a lot of interaction with federal agencies through grants 00:46:44
and quarantines, things like this and. 00:46:49
I was a member of the Carotid Cannabis Association, the Colorado Independent Cattlemen's Growers Wildly Livestock Association. And 00:46:54
I never had one positive comment about EPA. And I would just strongly encourage you guys now push back against these ballots 00:47:02
because I don't think they have the best interest of of agricultural livestock or farmers you know in the curb you. So that was 00:47:09
one thing I really encourage you. 00:47:17
The cameras, those are hard working people. 00:47:26
Businessmen and men and women. And I talked with Jan, She's really stressed on this whole deal. Water is a big deal. Yeah, I know 00:47:28
that. So that's one word of encouragement. The other thing I had a question on, I'm not clear on this is Rogue County or sanctuary 00:47:36
county. That's a question I've had and maybe we can address that in the amount of time we have here. But that's something I I 00:47:43
talked with several people up in my area and they definitely are against that. 00:47:50
Happening that we are a sanctuary county. 00:47:58
And I just last time I was here, I told you guys I was going to be praying for you. And I have been, and the scripture I've been 00:48:03
using is Isaiah 11/3. 00:48:09
And it talks about the Holy Spirit. There's seven facets to the Holy Spirit. It's spirit of the Lord, spirit of wisdom, knowledge, 00:48:15
understanding, counsel, might and the fear of the Lord. And I'm going to add safety to that for you guys because you have a big 00:48:24
job. It's not an easy one, but we're counting on you guys to, you know, I think will carry is probably one of the best counties in 00:48:32
the nation to be in. And you guys have big influence on how that's going to continue to go. So thank you very much. 00:48:40
I won't take any more time, but can I have one minute or no? You have a minute and eight seconds. OK, I have to tell you this, the 00:48:49
janitor that's retiring. 00:48:55
I have a friend that owned a really big company and he hired a bunch of cannibals to work. You know, in the, you know, help, the 00:49:03
one condition is you can't eat any of the employees. That's one condition, one condition. So three weeks later, you know 00:49:09
everything kind of go along pretty good. 00:49:14
The 4th week somebody said where is the custodian, where is the custodian? And so then he went to the head cannibal that was 00:49:20
working for him and he said look I told you you can't eat anybody. 00:49:26
And so the custodians or the cannibal said, OK, you know, we'll talk. So he addressed all the cannibals and he said, look, I know 00:49:32
you hate the CEO, the president, board, you know, all these higher up guys, but which one of your numbs call fake chapter? 00:49:40
So the actors do a lot to keep in school. Thank you, Mr. Mosby. And in direct answer to your question, well, county is not a 00:49:48
sanctuary county and we passed on 1st ordinance or ordinance. First reading of an ordinance a couple weeks ago stating as much. 00:49:56
I'll pass that around. All right. Thank you, Sir. Is there any other public comment today? Yes, ma'am. Come on up. 00:50:03
Welcome. Thank you for being here. Don't forget to state your name and address for the record, my name is Carlene Ferguson Smith. 00:50:24
I'm at 1115 E 20th St. in Greeley and I'm here about the East Greeley situation. And I just wanted to agree with Michelle that, 00:50:30
you know, everybody's getting really tired. And I mean, my son and husband didn't come because, you know, they can't take any more 00:50:36
