With roads that were closed beginning May 9th because of the. 2023-05-17 09:07:33
For that as these roads were. 2023-05-17 09:07:36
Have been and continue to be closed for longer than the 70. 2023-05-17 09:07:39
Two hour period. 2023-05-17 09:07:42
10 roads listed on this list that you have in front of you. 2023-05-17 09:07:45
Two of those have been reopened as of today. 2023-05-17 09:07:48
And we're anticipating 2 more will be open. 2023-05-17 09:07:51
Our plan is to keep on our. 2023-05-17 09:07:54
Public publications and social media to keep. 2023-05-17 09:07:57
Updated as these open any of these that would require. 2023-05-17 09:08:00
There are additional repair. 2023-05-17 09:08:03
You brought through the normal process as as we determine. 2023-05-17 09:08:06
That needs to be done, but we're getting these two passable condition. 2023-05-17 09:08:09
As soon as possible, OK. 2023-05-17 09:08:12
Scholarship program. 2023-05-17 10:17:06
All right, so it's. 2023-05-17 10:17:13
Michael mentioned, we have done. 2023-05-17 10:17:16
Significant community outreach associated with these. 2023-05-17 10:17:19
And we are always committed to maintaining a. 2023-05-17 10:17:22
They open two way dialogue with neighbors and other community. 2023-05-17 10:17:25
Members. 2023-05-17 10:17:27
So in September 7th of. 2023-05-17 10:17:28
2022 we held a community meeting. 2023-05-17 10:17:31
Weld Works Brewing Company and developers were. 2023-05-17 10:17:34
And to take questions and to really work with the surround. 2023-05-17 10:17:37
And neighbors to make sure that the projects we're proposing. 2023-05-17 10:17:40
Is as mitigating of their concerns. 2023-05-17 10:17:43
Possible. 2023-05-17 10:17:45
We also send County. 2023-05-17 10:17:46
Informing neighbors of the projects and then follow. 2023-05-17 10:17:49
Rough waters to that same group of folks in April. 2023-05-17 10:17:52
Of 2023 and we also had. 2023-05-17 10:17:55
That conversations with multiple neighbors. 2023-05-17 10:17:58
And we received no concerns about this. 2023-05-17 10:18:01
Project from planning staff or any of the new. 2023-05-17 10:18:04
Surrounding this project or any community member. 2023-05-17 10:18:07
OK, so I'd love to talk about how unique and. 2023-05-17 10:18:19
For these projects are and. To be honest, this is one of the. 2023-05-17 10:18:22
Reasons why I joined PIVOT is because I heard about these projects. 2023-05-17 10:18:25
The pivot was developing so umm. 2023-05-17 10:18:28
Pivot. I guess this is the next slide, but. 2023-05-17 10:18:31
OK. I'll go into that next, but first I just want to talk about. 2023-05-17 10:18:34
For the broader community benefits of these projects, so the proper. 2023-05-17 10:18:37
The tax that will be generated over the lifetime of the. 2023-05-17 10:18:40
Project is going to be between 1.4. 2023-05-17 10:18:43
For for the initial 20 years and then extending. 2023-05-17 10:18:46
To 2.8 million over the total of. 2023-05-17 10:18:49
40 years and again these projects draw. 2023-05-17 10:18:52
No County resources, so it really is a net. 2023-05-17 10:18:56
Number that we're presenting also all the power. 2023-05-17 10:18:59
That's going to be generated. We'll stay in Weld County and. 2023-05-17 10:19:02
Move to approve the closures listed in. 2023-05-17 09:08:15
Resolution back and then move back to Mr. James second by comma. 2023-05-17 09:08:18
Loss to approve. So we we started with like 20. 2023-05-17 09:08:21
We closed and we're down to those eight. 2023-05-17 09:08:24
10 on your list, We're down to 8 and we're hoping to have that down. 2023-05-17 09:08:27
6 By the end of day today, great great job public works. 2023-05-17 09:08:30
OK. Any further discussion all in favor? 2023-05-17 09:08:33
I posed motion carries. That concludes new business. 2023-05-17 09:08:36
We'll move on to public comment. Is there anybody in the audience that wishes to? 2023-05-17 09:08:39
Or speak to commissioners for up to 3 minutes on anything that's not on. 2023-05-17 09:08:42
Agenda. 2023-05-17 09:08:44
Come on. 2023-05-17 09:08:44
A bright sunshine. Good morning my. 2023-05-17 09:08:57
Mr. Keats, And I'm angrily when you. 2023-05-17 09:09:00
Thankfully, I can bring some good news. 2023-05-17 09:09:03
I saw on TV. 2023-05-17 09:09:06
Two days ago it would have. 2023-05-17 09:09:09
In New York, there was. 2023-05-17 09:09:12
Homeless veterans that were. 2023-05-17 09:09:15
Specifically benefit Weld County residents. 2023-05-17 10:19:04
We're going to be making a 204. 2023-05-17 10:19:07
$3000 community set of donations. 2023-05-17 10:19:11
Associated with the three projects we've identified. 2023-05-17 10:19:13
That one community based organization already this is. 2023-05-17 10:19:17
Greeley Weld, Economic Development. 2023-05-17 10:19:20
Partnership, which used to be called Bright Futures. 2023-05-17 10:19:23
We're going to be donating $85,000 to them. 2023-05-17 10:19:25
Scholarships for local Weld County folks who are in. 2023-05-17 10:19:29
Interested in pursuing careers in clean energy? 2023-05-17 10:19:32
OK. 2023-05-17 10:19:33
The remaining part of this. 2023-05-17 10:19:35
Nation. We'd love to work with community members to assist. 2023-05-17 10:19:37
What would be most beneficial? We're really open and flexible. 2023-05-17 10:19:41
Probably just want to make sure the money really helps in the. 2023-05-17 10:19:44
OK. 2023-05-17 10:19:50
So what makes these projects so unique? 2023-05-17 10:19:53
So Pivot Energy 1A portfolio of. 2023-05-17 10:19:56
31 megawatts with Excel energy to develop project. 2023-05-17 10:19:59
Put into a hotel. 2023-05-17 09:09:18
And uh, they. 2023-05-17 09:09:21
As no good reason, they were kicked out. 2023-05-17 09:09:24
So the. 2023-05-17 09:09:27
So they are. 2023-05-17 09:09:27
Some illegals could have. I think that's a trap. 2023-05-17 09:09:30
OK also too yesterday. 2023-05-17 09:09:33
Turned on TV, that was. 2023-05-17 09:09:36
What they're doing is too they're opening up. 2023-05-17 09:09:39
School gyms for the illegals. 2023-05-17 09:09:42
And the neighborhood? 2023-05-17 09:09:45
As well as the students and the teachers. And then. 2023-05-17 09:09:48
Everybody else around there are picketing. 2023-05-17 09:09:51
Protesting and my concern is. 2023-05-17 09:09:54
Because we have open borders. 2023-05-17 09:09:57
How about that? Could that happen here in Weld County? 2023-05-17 09:10:00
Gravely or wherever in Colorado. 2023-05-17 09:10:03
And Denver is also under emergency. 2023-05-17 09:10:06
And and. 2023-05-17 09:10:09
People coming up there that are shipped from the. 2023-05-17 09:10:12
Across their territory that were 100. 2023-05-17 10:20:02
Percent serves working families. 2023-05-17 10:20:05
Low income working families. So 100% of the. 2023-05-17 10:20:08
Energy is going to be donated to families. 2023-05-17 10:20:11
For the three projects here in Weld County that's going. 2023-05-17 10:20:14
The 2500 families that are going. 2023-05-17 10:20:17
Seeing their energy bills cut in half or more. 2023-05-17 10:20:20
With no cost to them. 2023-05-17 10:20:23
100% free. 2023-05-17 10:20:25
Um, over. 2023-05-17 10:20:26
The life of the 20 years that's going to account. 2023-05-17 10:20:29
Or equate to rather 40. 2023-05-17 10:20:32
8.5 up to 56 million. 2023-05-17 10:20:35
Dollars of energy bill savings for those family. 2023-05-17 10:20:38
And again, you know they're. 2023-05-17 10:20:41
Will roughly be cut in half. 2023-05-17 10:20:44
So this is very unique to Colorado. 2023-05-17 10:20:47
So the only projects that are 100% low income? 2023-05-17 10:20:50
And pivot is so honored to be developing them and. 2023-05-17 10:20:53
The committing to making sure that the projects. 2023-05-17 10:20:56
Typically focus on serving Weld County. 2023-05-17 10:20:59
Family. 2023-05-17 10:21:01
Alright, so Tim. 2023-05-17 10:21:02
Feels was gonna come today to prevent you from energy. 2023-05-17 10:21:05
Race Colorado, which is the community based Organic. 2023-05-17 10:21:08
And we partner with to subscribe families and. 2023-05-17 10:21:11
These solar gardens. 2023-05-17 10:21:13
They. 2023-05-17 10:21:14
Work across the state with different community. 2023-05-17 10:21:17
Your partner. 2023-05-17 10:21:19
This is just a slide about Energy Outreach Colorado. They're missing. 2023-05-17 10:21:23
To provide energy build systems for low income families across. 2023-05-17 10:21:26
And they do so by partnering with local. 2023-05-17 10:21:29
Whole organizations in each County that already have. 2023-05-17 10:21:32
Relationships with the families that they're trying to serve. 2023-05-17 10:21:35
So for Weld County, those partners are going to. 2023-05-17 10:21:38
The Salvation Army. The Catholic Charities. 2023-05-17 10:21:41
Of the USA and also Goodwill of Colorado. 2023-05-17 10:21:44
Um, they're Weld chapters? 2023-05-17 10:21:47
Order. 2023-05-17 09:10:15
Remember. 2023-05-17 09:10:15
They're very sort of places, including New York. 2023-05-17 09:10:18
I mean, something's done. 2023-05-17 09:10:21
Alright, you gotta get to to the Congress. 2023-05-17 09:10:24
To close those borders because. 2023-05-17 09:10:27
Between our resources and now. 2023-05-17 09:10:30
Taking away our citizens. 2023-05-17 09:10:33
Or shelters so we can put them. 2023-05-17 09:10:36
Into the shelter, and I don't think that's right with the. 2023-05-17 09:10:39
Repairs we should be able to have. 2023-05-17 09:10:42
Which we have barriers that you just being held. 2023-05-17 09:10:45
And and uh. 2023-05-17 09:10:48
And when you have things that happen like that happen that. 2023-05-17 09:10:51
On our compartments and even virtual. 2023-05-17 09:10:54
There is no respect for. 2023-05-17 09:10:57
People. 2023-05-17 09:11:00
People that. 2023-05-17 09:11:00
Through this country. 2023-05-17 09:11:03
You know. 2023-05-17 09:11:03
And this is exciting because these organizations are. 2023-05-17 10:21:53
We have relationships with the family, so it's going to be very. 2023-05-17 10:21:56
We need to get these folks signed up immediately to start. 2023-05-17 10:21:59
Energy Self saving? 2023-05-17 10:22:02
And so the need in Weld County for. 2023-05-17 10:22:08
It looks like this that are so unique and really serving this popup. 2023-05-17 10:22:11
Jason is very high and it continues to rise. 2023-05-17 10:22:14
So in 2022, Energy Outreach, Colorado. 2023-05-17 10:22:17
Assisted 1980. 2023-05-17 10:22:20
To Weld County families with. 2023-05-17 10:22:23
Paying down their energy bill debt so that. 2023-05-17 10:22:26
There's a total of 1.1 they are. 2023-05-17 10:22:29
.0 four $1,000,000 in. 2023-05-17 10:22:33
Energy bar system stuff in 2022. 2023-05-17 10:22:35
Applicants from Weld County have increased over 7. 2023-05-17 10:22:39
8% from last program year. 2023-05-17 10:22:41
Of energy power systems. 2023-05-17 10:22:44
An applicant. 2023-05-17 10:22:44
In Weld County have carried one point. 2023-05-17 10:22:48
Some of their bedrooms, I'm sure, because I feel like there's. 2023-05-17 09:11:06
Fortunately, and I don't like feeling like this, I. 2023-05-17 09:11:09
Sometimes regret serving his country. 2023-05-17 09:11:12
And it just makes me cry. Because of what? 2023-05-17 09:11:15
Happening to the veterans into this country as a whole. 2023-05-17 09:11:18
Thank you. 2023-05-17 09:11:21
So. 2023-05-17 09:11:21
Ohh. 2023-05-17 09:11:23
I couldn't agree with you more, Steve, you know. 2023-05-17 09:11:24
Um. 2023-05-17 09:11:26
Fortunately, you know. 2023-05-17 09:11:27
This the cities like New York and Denver that chose to become. 2023-05-17 09:11:30
Sanctuary cities, that's on them, right? I mean, nothing we can do. 2023-05-17 09:11:33
About that and as far as the Congress needing to do something, the. 2023-05-17 09:11:36
You there, if we would if, if they would follow the laws that are there. 2023-05-17 09:11:39
I don't put so much on Congress because obviously it worked. 2023-05-17 09:11:42
Well, with the previous president being able to shut the borders, it's. 2023-05-17 09:11:45
Policies of the current administration. That's the problem. And. 2023-05-17 09:11:48
Seven, Eight $3,000,000 in energy debt. 2023-05-17 10:22:50
Or rear? 2023-05-17 10:22:53
And that is 100 and. 2023-05-17 10:22:54
60% increase from the same time period last. 2023-05-17 10:22:57
Here, and this is, of course, because energy bills are rising. 2023-05-17 10:22:59
Since 2001, Energy outreach Color. 2023-05-17 10:23:03
So has enrolled 223 Weld County houses. 2023-05-17 10:23:06
And free community solar saving them. 2023-05-17 10:23:09
$2000 to date and so if these. 2023-05-17 10:23:12
Three projects are approved. It would be an in. 2023-05-17 10:23:15
First of all, opportunity for 2500 more. 2023-05-17 10:23:18
Weld County Families for Sign Up for these free. 2023-05-17 10:23:21
To balance savings, so again. 2023-05-17 10:23:24
Part of the reason why I joined pivot, it is super unique. 2023-05-17 10:23:27
We are able to do this and if, if such. 2023-05-17 10:23:30
Left really to these families. So thank you for. 2023-05-17 10:23:33
And if you have any questions? 2023-05-17 10:23:36
About how we do community donations. 2023-05-17 10:23:39
And how we really think about serving the community. I'm happy to take questions. 2023-05-17 10:23:42
Good luck trying to fix it so with that. 2023-05-17 09:11:51
Further business, we are adjourned. We'll be back at 10:00. O'clock for land. 2023-05-17 09:11:54
OK. I'm sorry. 2023-05-17 09:11:57
I'm sorry, we have a 9:00 AM show called. Sorry, but we will adjourn. 2023-05-17 09:12:00
For this second, my fault guys, sorry. 2023-05-17 09:12:03
Thank you, Kevin. Yeah. 2023-05-17 09:12:09

Close mind you see how? 2023-05-17 09:12:18
I'm ready. 2023-05-17 09:12:59
We'll go ahead and reconvene as the Board of County Commissioners call up. 2023-05-17 09:13:02
Market 2022-71 stock number. 2023-05-17 09:13:05

After Kyle finish. 2023-05-17 10:23:44
Thank you. 2023-05-17 10:23:45
All right. So, umm, you know it, it sounds. 2023-05-17 10:23:51
Too good to be sure. I'll explain just briefly how it works. So essential. 2023-05-17 10:23:54
You you generally understand how community solar works. We. 2023-05-17 10:23:57
Get into programs with Excel, typically at a very low cost. 2023-05-17 10:24:00
UH, to deliver the energy and the renewable energy credits are. 2023-05-17 10:24:03
Created with the production and that Excel gives us. 2023-05-17 10:24:06
Essentially a bucket of subscription. 2023-05-17 10:24:09
And build credits that we then sell to, you know? 2023-05-17 10:24:12
An administrative building, a commercial building or residence. 2023-05-17 10:24:15
Etcetera. And then we make the revenue to support the. 2023-05-17 10:24:18
Direction of the project from the. 2023-05-17 10:24:21
Subscription that we sell. 2023-05-17 10:24:23
What we did in this case and. 2023-05-17 10:24:24
Were able to do this with the donations. Is that we kind of. 2023-05-17 10:24:27
Got on its head and said let's let's just see if we can develop. 2023-05-17 10:24:30
Roger's that are more meaningful and more impactful. 2023-05-17 10:24:33
Instead of charging the subscriber, the end user of the. 2023-05-17 10:24:36
Or we'll just charge Excel and so. 2023-05-17 10:24:39
It worked out. Uh, this time it probably. 2023-05-17 10:24:42
Will never happen again because Excel is an investor owned utility who. 2023-05-17 10:24:45
Also wants to make money and basically what's happening is Excel. 2023-05-17 10:24:48
Hang up and we are using that money to. 2023-05-17 10:24:51
Create the investments and that we are not. 2023-05-17 10:24:54
Charging the subscriptions for the subscribers for the bill. 2023-05-17 10:24:57
They're allocating so through Energy Outreach Colorado that. 2023-05-17 10:25:00
How the You know, up to $50 million worth of bill credit. 2023-05-17 10:25:03
Will be allocated through the nonprofit and there will be no. 2023-05-17 10:25:06
Coming back in return, so no strings attached. 2023-05-17 10:25:09
But pivot is still making money, so. 2023-05-17 10:25:12
With that, I just wanna go. 2023-05-17 10:25:15
To the project specifics, here the first project. 2023-05-17 10:25:18
435 This is a great site for. 2023-05-17 10:25:21
However, it's arid. This is always what we look for in. 2023-05-17 10:25:24
Perfect World. It's not NRCS Prime. 2023-05-17 10:25:27
On land land owners Tandoori truck. 2023-05-17 10:25:30
We work for them for a number of years and eventually. 2023-05-17 10:25:33
In the terms and. 2023-05-17 10:25:36
A4 MW project just north of 33. 2023-05-17 10:25:39
36. 2023-05-17 10:25:41
Um and as. 2023-05-17 10:25:42
As mentioned by Diana, will either install a picket fence. 2023-05-17 10:25:45
Landscaping or Produce the waivers prior to building. 2023-05-17 10:25:48
For the setbacks. 2023-05-17 10:25:51
Um, I wonder this, but we reached out to all the. 2023-05-17 10:25:54
Favors. We've talked to a few of them directly who've reached out. 2023-05-17 10:25:57
Questions have been no concerns. 2023-05-17 10:26:00
Either presented the odds or to these or to the. 2023-05-17 10:26:03
Planning staff about the project. 2023-05-17 10:26:06
Um. 2023-05-17 10:26:08
This is. 2023-05-17 10:26:09
Again, it's it's unformed and unirrigated. Do. 2023-05-17 10:26:12
Insufficient water resources, which Mr. Cook will. 2023-05-17 10:26:15
Uh, to a little bit here in a moment and there. 2023-05-17 10:26:18
Are, you know, looking to do solar to diversify their economic return? 2023-05-17 10:26:21
Property. 2023-05-17 10:26:23
And with that, I will. 2023-05-17 10:26:24
Turn it over to Tim to give you a brief. 2023-05-17 10:26:27
Overview of why they're looking to do solar here on the parcel. 2023-05-17 10:26:30
And then I'll just wrap it up with a quick conclusion and we will move on. 2023-05-17 10:26:33
Thank you. Thank you. 2023-05-17 10:26:36
Good morning. Good morning, Commissioner. 2023-05-17 10:26:42
Say my name's Tim Cook. I. 2023-05-17 10:26:45
Tim Cook and my wife Lori on this. 2023-05-17 10:26:48
Ground approximately 27. 2023-05-17 10:26:51
Can you also state your address just for the record? 2023-05-17 10:26:54
6421 Highway 6. 2023-05-17 10:26:57
53 Atwood, Co. 2023-05-17 10:27:00
OK. 2023-05-17 10:27:02
Thank you. 2023-05-17 10:27:03
We own this approximately 27. 2023-05-17 10:27:06
Makers here in Weld County Road work. 2023-05-17 10:27:10
The energy is proposed to build this solar. 2023-05-17 10:27:12
The farm in 2002. 2023-05-17 10:27:15
New. 2023-05-17 10:27:18
We. 2023-05-17 10:27:18
On this property since 1995. 2023-05-17 10:27:22
In 2002, the state of Colorado. 2023-05-17 10:27:24
Shut down the irrigation well. There's a lot of. 2023-05-17 10:27:28
They're probably aware of. 2023-05-17 10:27:30
Um. 2023-05-17 10:27:31
And we were regulated and forced into. 2023-05-17 10:27:33
Well, augmentation group UM, which is. 2023-05-17 10:27:36
Central Colorado Water Conservancy District. 2023-05-17 10:27:40
In order to comply with this is REST. 2023-05-17 10:27:42
Actions of pumping from Colorado State. 2023-05-17 10:27:45
Division of Water Resources. 2023-05-17 10:27:49
We have spent a lot of money to comply with. 2023-05-17 10:27:52
These rules and restrictions only to have. 2023-05-17 10:27:55
A very small pumping quota each year. 2023-05-17 10:27:58
Um, it is such a small. 2023-05-17 10:28:01
Amount each year it makes us. 2023-05-17 10:28:04
Form a dry land farm now. 2023-05-17 10:28:07
And yeah, we pay irrigated property. 2023-05-17 10:28:10
Access. 2023-05-17 10:28:12
Um, yes. 2023-05-17 10:28:13
However, high water assessment fees. 2023-05-17 10:28:16
It was. I would say it'd be like asking. 2023-05-17 10:28:19
You could you live on only 10% of your. 2023-05-17 10:28:22
Paycheck. 2023-05-17 10:28:24
The farm group. 2023-05-17 10:28:25
And has not been sustainable since 2002. 2023-05-17 10:28:28
So with the loss of the irrigation well. 2023-05-17 10:28:31
Um, we have hoped that the water. 2023-05-17 10:28:34
The situation would get better. 2023-05-17 10:28:37
But it has only gotten worse. 2023-05-17 10:28:39
We have been approached by several. 2023-05-17 10:28:43
For companies about leasing or place because. 2023-05-17 10:28:46
That fits the criteria of size. 2023-05-17 10:28:48
Within location for a solar parcel. 2023-05-17 10:28:52
We had selected pivoting energy. 2023-05-17 10:28:55
To work with because they were established here in. 2023-05-17 10:28:58
Colorado and they have a good working. 2023-05-17 10:29:01
Relationship already with Weld County. 2023-05-17 10:29:04
We feel that this. 2023-05-17 10:29:13
Is a good, viable way for us to draw so. 2023-05-17 10:29:16
And come off the farm and still keep it. 2023-05-17 10:29:19
Open from development. 2023-05-17 10:29:22
We just asked that pivot in. 2023-05-17 10:29:25
We've come to an agreement, they've. 2023-05-17 10:29:28
Release the full property of. 2023-05-17 10:29:31
Approximately the 27 acres we. 2023-05-17 10:29:34
Like to ask that Pivot energy be a good night? 2023-05-17 10:29:37
Here in the area and accommodate all our new. 2023-05-17 10:29:40
There's concerns as well as being a good. 2023-05-17 10:29:43
Stewart to the land by meaning main. 2023-05-17 10:29:46
Meaning the inside and outside. 2023-05-17 10:29:49
Boundary of the fenced area of the home. 2023-05-17 10:29:52
The property of approximately. 2023-05-17 10:29:55
27 acre as it was part of. 2023-05-17 10:29:58
The agreement we had made and leasing them. 2023-05-17 10:30:01
The whole farm with us being far. 2023-05-17 10:30:04
Farmers, we know, know how important land steward. 2023-05-17 10:30:07
Chip is and how much time and effort? 2023-05-17 10:30:10
It takes to maintain a form. 2023-05-17 10:30:13
Very large scale property like our farm. 2023-05-17 10:30:16
Thank you. Thank you. 2023-05-17 10:30:19
Question Mr. Good Mr. 2023-05-17 10:30:22
I was just going to say there's a. 2023-05-17 10:30:25
Local concept of. 2023-05-17 10:30:28
After. 2023-05-17 10:30:28
Service you allow the poor to glean your fields. 2023-05-17 10:30:31
And I really do like that concept of. It's not. 2023-05-17 10:30:34
It's the field producing solar. It's also. 2023-05-17 10:30:37
A field of hope and a sense so. 2023-05-17 10:30:40
I really like that concept and really appreciate you. 2023-05-17 10:30:43
Bring this forward, I would mention too, we've had. 2023-05-17 10:30:46
Some concern about we've heard about sheep and. 2023-05-17 10:30:49
Go with some other animals and um. 2023-05-17 10:30:52
I I just want to say to you, you said this farmland has been. 2023-05-17 10:30:55
Um, kind of not sustainable for a while. 2023-05-17 10:30:58
And umm. 2023-05-17 10:31:00
You know anybody? 2023-05-17 10:31:01
It's good in the end zone. 2023-05-17 10:31:04
If I right to have a hog farm or sheep farm and you know. 2023-05-17 10:31:07
And assuming my question is, is that the sheep or the? 2023-05-17 10:31:10
Maybe occasionally to keep the grasses low and. 2023-05-17 10:31:13
Um, I don't. 2023-05-17 10:31:16
Is that is that? 2023-05-17 10:31:16
We've dry, We've dry land out. 2023-05-17 10:31:19
Here in that area, it's it's very sandy. 2023-05-17 10:31:22
Loan soil. 2023-05-17 10:31:25
It takes a lot of water to produce. 2023-05-17 10:31:28
A crawl and we've tried to dry land. 2023-05-17 10:31:31
You know, with Mother Nature, but we've been in a. 2023-05-17 10:31:34
Continuing drought pattern, Big key. 2023-05-17 10:31:37
Thing is, timely rains and things like that and we just haven't had. 2023-05-17 10:31:40
So we went in and we feeded. 2023-05-17 10:31:43
Uh, native graph. 2023-05-17 10:31:46
You know. 2023-05-17 10:31:46
Trying to get an established like you said for grazing but. 2023-05-17 10:31:49
It just hasn't. 2023-05-17 10:31:52
Viable. You know you you gotta, man. 2023-05-17 10:31:55
Manage the ground, you know, I think people move in on a four. 2023-05-17 10:32:04
We could track and they bring the animals where they graze it all down, nubuck down and you know, then you got bare ground and we've just tried to, you know, maintain the. 2023-05-17 10:32:12
And keep keep the cover and you know, try to take the crop off which hasn't been fixed. 2023-05-17 10:32:18
And then our pumping quota is just so small that we've used it on other parts. 2023-05-17 10:32:24
Of the ground. 2023-05-17 10:32:27
That we have and that's why we've relocated out. 2023-05-17 10:32:30
In Colorado with a more viable water source where we can farm and be. 2023-05-17 10:32:36
OK, everybody. It's not far from that. We, you know that my wife and I first bought. 2023-05-17 10:32:42
And it continued from there on and just kind of want to try to keep it. 2023-05-17 10:32:48
Cultural you know, we're agricultural people and this was something that we looked at that. 2023-05-17 10:32:54
Viable and and keep it open kind of fit the comprehensive. 2023-05-17 10:33:00
You know area, you know, development. 2023-05-17 10:33:05
And now so. 2023-05-17 10:33:06
And we want to just kind of stay in Weld County. You know, we've been approached by a. 2023-05-17 10:33:12
And then? 2023-05-17 10:33:15
And just, umm, they've kind of moved over on that side and trying to develop, but. 2023-05-17 10:33:18
They just have, you know, like kind of sad they annexed the road in, but we never. 2023-05-17 10:33:24
Even see him over over there to maintain the road and we'll Weld County had it they. 2023-05-17 10:33:30
They were there weekly you know maintaining the road map. We just ended the that they. 2023-05-17 10:33:36
Have anything to offer for us and wanted to kind of keep it agricultural like you said? 2023-05-17 10:33:42
Look at some other viable options. 2023-05-17 10:33:46
To try to keep it agricultural in that setting. 2023-05-17 10:33:48
Mr. Ross, just for clarification, you you don't live in one of the residences there on the. 2023-05-17 10:33:54
Side you guys are out in Atwood, is that we used to live in the residence, right? 2023-05-17 10:34:00
The next one up to the corner there, that was our house right there that we do balance on the plate. 2023-05-17 10:34:06
And we had sold them off when we had moved, transitioned out to Eastern. 2023-05-17 10:34:12
Colorado and as far as like closest residence that in the back there. 2023-05-17 10:34:18
A parcel would be to the east that offer, that's when they. 2023-05-17 10:34:24
Built the industrial flex next to us, the rail station. I can't think of the. 2023-05-17 10:34:30
Name of it. That was a residence, but it's no longer a residence. They used that place for an office. 2023-05-17 10:34:36
Fair And it's far down on the corner here, there would be only the two residents. 2023-05-17 10:34:42
It's a mark beamer that bought our place and then billing Ewing which is a long. 2023-05-17 10:34:48
Time resident from the area out there. That family has very close by the agriculture. 2023-05-17 10:34:54
And the article down here in that corner there, um, it's a rental. 2023-05-17 10:35:00
The storage property, that was the old match. It seemed a place where they had, he had farmed. That's who we bought. 2023-05-17 10:35:06
Fearful of land from and he since passed away, and that place is sold several times. 2023-05-17 10:35:13
It's a rental storage place because of the shared the outbuildings on the place I mean. 2023-05-17 10:35:19
I'm sure they rent the house out, but most of it's used for for storage. 2023-05-17 10:35:24
OK. Can I ask one more question? Would you identify on the map for me where the entrance is on? 2023-05-17 10:35:31
For the site for construction, please. 2023-05-17 10:35:35
It'd be. 2023-05-17 10:35:37
Yeah. 2023-05-17 10:35:41
We've got, you know, entrances right here, this. 2023-05-17 10:35:42
This was a exist existing address to the farm right here. 2023-05-17 10:35:49
And then we've got one right here. 2023-05-17 10:35:53
One moment. 2023-05-17 10:35:55
Plan. 2023-05-17 10:35:59
Up in the corner where our old residence part and then. 2023-05-17 10:36:01
Billy, you have one right here. 2023-05-17 10:36:05
But this is where the Weld is. 2023-05-17 10:36:07
To the property and this would be. 2023-05-17 10:36:11
140. 2023-05-17 10:36:12
Yeah. 2023-05-17 10:36:12
OK. Appreciate it. Thank you, Mr. Buck. Well, Mr. Cook, I sure do appreciate you being here. 2023-05-17 10:36:19

Again, want to thank you for being here. OK, great. OK, thank you. 2023-05-17 10:36:43

You're five. Yeah. 2023-05-17 10:37:00
I mean like you talk. 2023-05-17 10:37:01
We're certainly grateful to the Planning Commission for unanimously recommending this for approval. We think this is a really. 2023-05-17 10:37:07
Project that provides a lot of benefit to Weld County residents and as you heard from Mr. Cook. 2023-05-17 10:37:13
Uh, it's it's a good use for the parcel for their family. So umm, we. 2023-05-17 10:37:19
Your consideration and be happy to answer any question. 2023-05-17 10:37:23
In regards to the. 2023-05-17 10:37:25
Wrote Miss Cooks. Correct city. Evans doesn't maintain that that's privately maintained, so your additional traffic. 2023-05-17 10:37:31
It's on there. You guys gonna take any um? 2023-05-17 10:37:36
I guess maintenance, uh. 2023-05-17 10:37:37
Items up on that as you when you're doing construction where you'll have heavier traffic on that, are you going to make sure the roads? 2023-05-17 10:37:43
Getting to your access point there on County Road 33, certainly yes Sir, we we do have a. 2023-05-17 10:37:49
This permit with the City of Evans already and so we'll be in close communication with them and and obviously. 2023-05-17 10:37:55
It doesn't matter of good faith, make sure to to. 2023-05-17 10:37:59
Ensure that the road stays in good condition the traffic. 2023-05-17 10:38:01
Is relatively minimal, even during construction and then post, it's, you know, significantly less than. 2023-05-17 10:38:07
The additional question I had, could you point out to me what you're doing for screening on? 2023-05-17 10:38:13
Of the project for those residences that are sitting to the West of the property, I'll say the. 2023-05-17 10:38:19
West corner specifically, and even the one down on the southwest corner of the property. 2023-05-17 10:38:25
Yeah, so. 2023-05-17 10:38:25
And so we're working with those folks and we've offered them essentially A stipend if they would would like to find a way. 2023-05-17 10:38:31
For the landscaping or opaque sensing, and if they elect not to do that, we will install you know. 2023-05-17 10:38:37
Landscaping or fencing, in compliance with that section of code. 2023-05-17 10:38:42
So currently you're doing nothing unless UH residents reply to you that they want. 2023-05-17 10:38:49
The default is that we will install landscaping or take screening unless the unless the. 2023-05-17 10:38:55
