2023-2024 Annual action Plan. 00:17:45
Good morning, Elizabeth. 00:17:50
Morning, Commissioners. 00:17:52
Elizabeth Crawford Public works. 00:17:54
Happy to present to you today the 2023 Annual Action Plan for CDBG program. As you know, Weld County is an entitlement county is 00:17:56
designated by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. 00:18:02
And granted the CDBG much easier to say thank you for repeating Community Development Block Grant Program funds annually to fund 00:18:08
locally. 00:18:12
Community development and housing programs that primarily benefit the low to moderate income households and special needs groups 00:18:17
in the county. 00:18:21
As a requirement to receiving these HUD federal CDBG funds. 00:18:24
The county is required to prepare Consolidated Plan every five years in an annual action plan each year. 00:18:28
Describing the activities and goals that the county plans to pursue and undertake to utilize these funds. 00:18:35
They support the activities consistent with the national objectives for HUD as well as the Commissioners program objectives and 00:18:41
goals. 00:18:45
That have been established as part of the consolidated Annual action plan. 00:18:50
That for the commissioners, your goals are primarily improve infrastructure. 00:18:56
The housing preservation and access to services. 00:19:01
HUD also has established priorities through public facilities and infrastructure projects. 00:19:06
Public services, economic development opportunities, and affordable housing programs. 00:19:12
Not just how glory abilitation. 00:19:17
So the consolidated plan is designed to help entitlement grantees assess their affordable housing and community development needs. 00:19:19
And market to. 00:19:25
Conditions to help make data-driven placed. 00:19:26
Based investment decisions. 00:19:29
The consolidated plan is carried out through the subsequent annual action plans. 00:19:31
Which provide a summary of the actions, activities and the specific federal and non federal resources that are used each year. 00:19:36
To address the priority needs and specific goals identified in the Consolidated Plan, Rob County is also required as part of this 00:19:42
process to provide citizens and opportunity to participate in the development and planning of the Annual Action Plan each year. 00:19:48
Public hearings help gauge the community development needs and establish funding priorities for current and future projects. 00:19:55
As well as a review of the performance of the program and affirmative affirmatively further fair housing this year, you guys did 00:20:02
again do our fair housing proclamation. We appreciate that and we look forward to continuing that effort as part of this program. 00:20:08
The annual Action plan provides an outline of the programs, activities, goals and objectives that the County plans to undertake 00:20:16
and support. 00:20:19
And so this plan that's before you today represents the 2023 annual action plan, which is year three of our consolidated plan, 00:20:23
which is identified from year 2021 to 2025. 00:20:29
The projects that you have identified as part of the 2023 Annual action plan. 00:20:35
Include a wealth county on demand transportation services for 60 plus ride. 00:20:39
I know it can. 00:20:44
ADA ramp project An Eaton nonconforming ADA ramp ramp replacement project. 00:20:46
Improvements to the Pier Senior Center. 00:20:52
Frederick Bridgets Village, which is a 40 unit affordable housing project. 00:20:55
And Firestones Old Town 88 Ramp Project. 00:21:00
And then of course, as part of this program, we have to show our administrative costs that are taken out of that as well. 00:21:03
So we, I guess at this point I would probably ask the chair if you could open the public hearing and we can invite the public to 00:21:10
comment on the needs of the the county. 00:21:14
OK, so so this is the time we come to a lot of public input concerning the 2023 annual action plan, which is a one year plan that 00:21:20
identified the needs of the community, develops a strategy to address the needs of the county in order to receive community 00:21:25
development block grant entitlement funds. And with that it's open to the public, with anybody from the public that wishes to 00:21:30
comment on this plan. 00:21:35
OK. 00:21:41
OK. 00:21:42
Yes. 00:21:44
Chairman Just for the record, this is also Docket #2023-54. 00:21:51
Good. Thank you. You're just calling it up during this time because it's the same subject. OK. Thank you. 00:21:58
Good morning, commissioners. My name is Steve Tates. I'm angry. 00:22:11
And. 00:22:14
Too bad. Clearly can't. 00:22:16
More effort from this, but I know Evans can. 00:22:20
And I would like to know too that. 00:22:23
You know for if it's housing and also healing Park, I think the. 00:22:27
To get you said something about transportation that they can so they can get in the Evans, Greeley or wherever they need to go and 00:22:33
be. 00:22:38
Can work with Greeley Evans Transit agree government to really well system from this grant. I would think he could do that finger. 00:22:43
Do you want me? Go ahead. OK, so as part of this process, Evans is one of our communities that participates in our CDBG program. 00:22:54
The City of Greeley is its own entitlement. They get their own funding separate from our urban county designation. So they get a 00:23:01
direct distribution of their own CDBG funding to administer for their communities needs. Obviously get is the Greeley Evans 00:23:08
Transit Service that provides transport transit. 00:23:15
Services to both communities. 00:23:22
Umm. 00:23:25
So essentially, these funds can't be duplicated where they're already receiving funds, if that makes sense, it does. 00:23:26
Well, I was thinking that we could have a route even though it's really even transit, but they could have a route from these funds 00:23:34
to go out to Hill and Park. So that's the 60 plus ride services for Evans would be available as well as future B Mobility they can 00:23:40
call up and they can schedule. 00:23:46
For all for sure, for all our unincorporated residents as well as the the residents that are participating in our CDBG program #2. 00:23:52
OK. OK. Thank you. Any other public comment? 00:24:02
29 O'clock closed public comment and three back to board. 00:24:08
It's I'm have some questions, Mr. Chair. So I just wanted to make sure. So this this one is the plan that we already discussed 00:24:12
earlier, right? I mean we had a. 00:24:16
In a recession and I think there was one public hearing already, correct. OK, alright, so that's the same one. 00:24:21
And can I ask a question on this one and the next one? I just want to make sure too, because there there was something going 00:24:27
around regarding. 00:24:31
Identifying housing stock and planning. That's not either of these two. 00:24:35
13 and 14, right? 00:24:40
This is the exact items that Elizabeth just mentioned that this board approved for the funding for this year. OK. Those six things 00:24:43
or whatever they were, yeah. 00:24:47
OK. 00:24:53

The assurances, the certifications and everything that. 00:25:36

Authorized the chair signature on these forms to submit to HUD. This is the these are the forms that actually help them generate 00:25:50

The total cost of the expansion is estimated at 18 million, of which 6.5 million will be new equipment. As part of the expansion, 00:28:14
Microvias will be hiring 50 new full-time employees at an estimated wage of 85,000 a year. 00:28:22

Based on the company's equipment investment of 6.5 million Weld counties, personal property tax rebate is estimated at 76,300 and 00:28:36
94,000 / 10 years. 00:28:43

Scott James, Kevin Ross. 00:29:53
What you saying no payback? Yes. Mike Freeman? Yes. Motion carries 4 to one with Commissioner Shane. You know who won the number 00:29:56
19? This is first reading of Code Ordinance 2023, Dash 10 in the matter of repealing the reenacting within this Chapter 3 Human 00:30:02
Resources of the Royal County Code Concealed Carry. 00:30:08
Chairman, this is some changes to. 00:30:15
Section 3-3-30. 00:30:19
Specifically subparagraph B to clarify that. 00:30:22
Employees are permitted to who have concealed. 00:30:27
Carry handgun permits. 00:30:32
Are allowed to have those weapons with them. 00:30:34
During work hours and on work property. 00:30:40
County property. 00:30:44
So the provision that's there, this clarifies that that's in fact the case. 00:30:46
It also clarifies that open carrying or unpermitted concealed carrying. 00:30:52
Of weapons is prohibited. 00:30:59
OK. 00:31:02
Morning. Any questions for staff? 00:31:03
OK, this is a public hearing. Is there anybody in the public that wishes to comment on Code Ordinance 2023 Dash 10? 00:31:06
OK. So you know public comment, I will bring it back to the board. 00:31:15
To prove I'm If you wouldn't mind since I worked on this I'm gonna move to approve it, but just a comment too that. 00:31:20
I brought this word for a reason. People do need to defend themselves on county property and. 00:31:26
I I would like us to actually move the constitutional carry at some point and work on that because we are a Second Amendment 00:31:33
sanctuary county. 00:31:36
And I think employees will use their best judgment and. 00:31:41
I was at I I moved in for this quarter. Code Ordinance 2023 Dash 09. 00:31:44
A second Actually 10. 00:31:49
Ohh, I'm sorry 10. 00:31:52
No by Commissioner saying second by Commissioner Brock to approve all in favor Aye, opposed motion carries. 00:31:54
Concludes new business. We move on to planning. We have one item in the planning first reading of Code Order 2023-09 and the night 00:32:00
of repealing and reenacting with amendments Chapter 23 zoning of the Weld County Code Limited Event permits. Morning Tom. 00:32:06
Good morning, commissioners. Tom Parker, Department of Planning Services. 00:32:15
Happy to present on this particular ordinance dealing with their limited events permits as we've had multiple discussions over 00:32:19
this and and work sessions. Really the primary purpose of this permit is to allow property owners to have multiple events per 00:32:25
calendar year without having to go through. 00:32:32
Putting laborious process like a use by special review permit. We used to have this process in the code a number of years ago, but 00:32:39
we'd like to bring it back just because we're starting to see more of these types of temporary events, farm to table events, for 00:32:46
example, nonprofit events, charity events that we think that this permit could serve very well. 00:32:54
So the the ordinance that you have in Tyler before you really captures this the intent of this permit, but it is to allow property 00:33:03
owners. 00:33:08
Or any other types of organizations to have up to four events per calendar year. Or they could actually have 3 consecutive days 00:33:14
under this permit. 00:33:19
And it does really do capture a lot of. 00:33:26
You know, impacts to that particular event, as you can see in the ordinance. We put together a lot of performance standards in 00:33:34
here that address everything from water, sanitation, trash. 00:33:40
Medical emergency services, if there was such a big event that required something like that. 00:33:48
Has provisions in there for dust control, sound, lighting, parking, insurance, et cetera. 00:33:53
And so moving forward, we did take this to the. 00:34:03
Planning Commission. And right before the Planning Commission, we caught a small omission, which was that we had inadvertently 00:34:09
left off the C4 Commercial zoning District. So we when I presented that to Planning Commission, it was an easy fix. We put C4 back 00:34:15
in. You'll find that. 00:34:21
As part of the resolution, so we we put the C4 zoning district in there. 00:34:27
I do want to clarify though too that under this particular permit rodeos and racing events that those are still covered under a 00:34:32
use by special review. So if somebody wanted to come in for rodeo, this permit would not cover that. They would still have to go 00:34:38
through a use by special review permit under Chapter 23. 00:34:44
When I did present this in front of the Planning Commission, they did recommend unanimous approval at their July 11th meeting. 00:34:51
There was some discussion though on the guarantee section. 00:35:00
Of this permit. 00:35:04
And one of the things that we had discussed is that right now a financial guarantee is required. Jim Fletcher and my office 00:35:07
actually reached out to Larimer County who has a very similar permit. 00:35:12
Um. And in their permit, they don't make it a requirement, they just put in there that it's at the discretion of the county. 00:35:19
I'd like to propose that we amend that section which is found under section 23-18-90, subsection paragraph R, because right now it 00:35:28
talks about how they have to post a $3000 Shorty for any event over 250. 00:35:38
Or a $500 Shorty for any event between 100 and less than 250. So I kind of like to tweak that language to insert some language 00:35:48
that says may require that we don't have to really tweak too much more, but it still gives the direction to the commissioners. 00:35:57
Again, I think the whole point of this permit is to get people to apply for it so they're doing it the right way. I think some of 00:36:06
this stuff might be a little heavy-handed and and and maybe discourage some people to apply, especially for the smaller events 00:36:13
that that may not be able to put up $3000 or even or even 500, but it still leaves it up to the county's discretion. 00:36:19
So I just wanted to bring that to the board's attention that there are other counties that have a permit in place like this, but 00:36:26
they do not require a mandate that Shorty. It's just again at the discretion of the of the Board of County Commissioners that is 1 00:36:32
my one suggestion there. 00:36:38
We did. Our staff has has been really good at making sure that we can get this permit in place. So we have the actual application 00:36:44
that we put together. We do have to make a couple of tweaks to this if the commissioners agree to making some tweaks. 00:36:53
To the guarantee. The other thing I'd like to point out is that there is a notification component to this permit. We notify sound 00:37:02
rounding property owners within 500 feet. 00:37:08
There is a quick turn around time on this maximum of 20 days once staff has gone through and looked at the application, put it 00:37:14
together as a recommendation. These do actually come before the Board of County Commissioners. You guys have the ultimate say on 00:37:20
whether one of these gets approved or not. The beauty about this process too is if the first event. 00:37:27
Uh, doesn't go off very well. You don't have to approve any of the other events, so. 00:37:35
I did want to actually point that out as well. 00:37:42
So, having said all of that, um. 00:37:46
Staff does recommend that the Board of County Commissioners go ahead and approve this particular ordinance. 00:37:50
And finally, because we have a couple of these events in the queue that are ready to go later this month, we would like to make 00:37:57
sure we can roll this out after today and that is built into the to the resolution even though we still have to go through a three 00:38:03
reading process. 00:38:09
And this will be actually be rolled out and. 00:38:16
If if your approval on the on the first reading today. So with that said I'd be happy to answer any questions that the 00:38:20
Commissioners may have. 00:38:23
Those Board of the Commissioner, James, thank you Mr. Chair, thanks to Tom Staffing and Bruce for working hard on this. I think it 00:38:28
looks outstanding. 00:38:31
I just question the parlance for the attorney. 00:38:35
And I certainly agree with the changing the shell into a May. Can that be done at second reading or do we need to amend that now? 00:38:38
I would recommend you change that now. And I I agree with Tom on this. 00:38:44
Ohh. 00:38:51
On those temporary assemblage permits that we did over the years, I can remember only one. 00:38:52
Where we came real close to having to execute on a bond. 00:38:59
Because they had allowed trash flow and cause a problem, but they got out there and cleaned it up. 00:39:05
Um, the other ones. 00:39:13
Typically, it always is where. 00:39:15
The applicant is going. What is this and how do I do this and? 00:39:18
Um, I I think it's the risk is low. I think putting in May is a good idea. 00:39:23
So I'd recommend that you do that. 00:39:30
As to the. 00:39:33
It's a very last paragraph in the ordinance. 00:39:35
That allows for the pending ordinance doctrine. 00:39:38
To occur. So we put in there that. 00:39:41
It would be from this day forward that you would be. 00:39:44
Requiring these types of applications to come in and. 00:39:48
Tom has done a good job on. 00:39:52
Having his staff put together the application form. 00:39:55
For that. So they're ready to go. Yes, we are. 00:39:59
OK. So just so I understand, so anybody that would apply for one of these that permit is not granted by a year step by Utah and if 00:40:02
they all come in front of us. That's correct. OK. So if you would actually get one that there's red flags all over the place where 00:40:08
that would be the situation where we may want to say we wanna, we wanna bond. OK, Commissioner James Chair. Let me give this a go. 00:40:15
Hang on one second. I need to open it to the public. I would think you would do that after I I'm sorry. 00:40:21
Has to go ahead and end it, right. OK. I'm sorry. I thought you were gonna make motion just real quick. Can I just have one more 00:40:28
comment? We do have an A nominal application fee for this permit after having conversations with the board, it's $100. 00:40:35
That that is not included in this ordinance, but that will come before the Board of County Commissioners in a separate ordinance 00:40:43
when we tackle fees. So I just wanted to point that out to that. 00:40:47
OK. Thank you. 00:40:52
Commissioner James, This Chair I Move We Amend Code Ordinance, 2023, Dash 09. 00:40:54
Section 23/18/90. 00:41:00
A paragraph are to strike on line 3. 00:41:05
The word shall and change that to May 2nd. OK, then move by Commissioner James second by Commissioner Shane to amend. 00:41:11
The first reading of Code Resolution 2023-09. 00:41:18
All in favor, aye. Opposed motion carries. 00:41:23
OK. Any other questions for staff? 00:41:27
OK, with that then I will open it up to the public. Is everybody, the public that wishes to come up and discuss Code Ordinance 00:41:30
2023 Dash 09? 00:41:34
Hi, I'm Billy. 00:41:45
These meetings are sometimes interesting. Back on the Tom Parker's analysis of C4. For those of us who were sold, the C4 has an 00:41:48
entirely different meaning. It's an explosive C4, the builders building, clearing the Lucerne. 00:41:55
Thank you. 00:42:02
Alright, Any other public comment? 00:42:05
Singing group. Back to the board for the motion, Mr. Chair. Since I've worked on this also Commissioner Ross started that one. Go 00:42:09
ahead Commissioner. Roster Chair moved to approve first reading Court Ordinance 2309 as amended. 00:42:16
Second move by Mr. Ross, second by Commissioner Buck to approve Code Ordinance 2023-09. All in favor aye opposed comments on this. 00:42:24
Mr. Chair, opposed motion carries, yes. I just want to thank you so much for working on this young person in particular, but. 00:42:34
This is going to make it a lot easier for people to have events and it's going to streamline the process not only for a clerk to 00:42:42
the board, but the entire staff and for the customer, which is our citizens and taxpayers so. 00:42:47
Very honored to work with you on this as well. And and and. 00:42:53
The whole process where we didn't even have to apply for USR was completely. 00:42:56
Out of range and that would have been extremely expensive. A lot of people are just having fun on the table vents. They're having 00:43:00
the Talibans balls, another great example where they actually raise money for the Cancer Society. I mean, there's a lot of great 00:43:05
events that have been in Weld County and we should, we're always about freedom. I think that's the least. I hope we will continue 00:43:09
to do so. So this actually increases freedom. And so thank you so much for, for working on this and pushing through. Thank you, 00:43:14
ma'am. 00:43:18
Without that concludes planning, we do have public comment. Anybody that wishes to come up and discuss anything that was, is not 00:43:24
on our agenda. Just to be the time Mr. 00:43:28
Come on up. 00:43:34
Thanks. 00:43:40
And let my notes appear. 00:43:44
For the record, my name is Steve keeps increasing. 00:43:48
Umm. 00:43:51
Well, I kind of want it shortly. 00:43:55
And just speak back, you know we we have a pilot taxes, everybody pays a lot of taxes if you own a home or not. But if it's sales 00:43:58
tax, food tax, property tax and also I want to make a comment on the property tax. You know when somebody is buying a house, once 00:44:05
they paid it off, why should they have to pay taxes on the property to the house has already paid off. I I don't think that's fair 00:44:12
and right just like if you go in the store. 00:44:18
You buy something. 00:44:25
Then then you pay the tax on that and then you take it home and you don't continue paying tax on what you bought into store 00:44:27
because that's what Also you got utilities, lodging, dealership water rates or storm water impact fees, building permit fees, 00:44:33
license plate taxes. 00:44:40
And also state and federal taxes taxes taxes, taxes and that at times the this depends on what government entity. Likewise people 00:44:47
don't get representative but we pay all these taxes and we don't get the service like needs if it's transit infrastructure or 00:44:55
even. 00:45:02
Uh, some assistance in housing for people and various other things. 00:45:10
And yet we pay all these taxes. 00:45:17
Um. 00:45:20
You know and also too, but some for some entities give. 00:45:22
Tax breaks to big companies, but that takes away the funding to fix things or. 00:45:28
I have even been able to have. 00:45:35
Some benefits if it's the state or the federal government, and if you make a little bit over it, you don't get. 00:45:38
And you lose the benefit completely instead of maybe gradually and especially if you're my age, if it's Social Security, if it's 00:45:46
Medicaid, Medicare or other benefits. 00:45:53
In the loose financial freedom and and people feel like they're. 00:46:00
You know, they won, kept poor or homeless or or whatever. And I'm just thinking that. 00:46:05
But we need to invest the taxes into back into the people that makes the community, the state, the county and even this nation 00:46:13
with their religious nation on this planet. And yet we've got so many people are homeless or fighting and to stay in their home. 00:46:18
Thank you. 00:46:24
Good. 00:46:30
Any other public comment? 00:46:31
OK. 00:46:34
So you know, we will close public comment and we will adjourn at 941. We'll be back at 10:00. O'clock for language please. Thanks 00:46:35
everybody. 00:46:38

2023-2024 Annual action Plan. 00:17:45
Good morning, Elizabeth. 00:17:50
Morning, Commissioners. 00:17:52
Elizabeth Crawford Public works. 00:17:54
Happy to present to you today the 2023 Annual Action Plan for CDBG program. As you know, Weld County is an entitlement county is 00:17:56
designated by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. 00:18:02
And granted the CDBG much easier to say thank you for repeating Community Development Block Grant Program funds annually to fund 00:18:08
locally. 00:18:12
Community development and housing programs that primarily benefit the low to moderate income households and special needs groups 00:18:17
in the county. 00:18:21
As a requirement to receiving these HUD federal CDBG funds. 00:18:24
The county is required to prepare Consolidated Plan every five years in an annual action plan each year. 00:18:28
Describing the activities and goals that the county plans to pursue and undertake to utilize these funds. 00:18:35
They support the activities consistent with the national objectives for HUD as well as the Commissioners program objectives and 00:18:41
goals. 00:18:45
That have been established as part of the consolidated Annual action plan. 00:18:50
That for the commissioners, your goals are primarily improve infrastructure. 00:18:56
The housing preservation and access to services. 00:19:01
HUD also has established priorities through public facilities and infrastructure projects. 00:19:06
Public services, economic development opportunities, and affordable housing programs. 00:19:12
Not just how glory abilitation. 00:19:17
So the consolidated plan is designed to help entitlement grantees assess their affordable housing and community development needs. 00:19:19
And market to. 00:19:25
Conditions to help make data-driven placed. 00:19:26
Based investment decisions. 00:19:29
The consolidated plan is carried out through the subsequent annual action plans. 00:19:31
Which provide a summary of the actions, activities and the specific federal and non federal resources that are used each year. 00:19:36
To address the priority needs and specific goals identified in the Consolidated Plan, Rob County is also required as part of this 00:19:42
process to provide citizens and opportunity to participate in the development and planning of the Annual Action Plan each year. 00:19:48
Public hearings help gauge the community development needs and establish funding priorities for current and future projects. 00:19:55
As well as a review of the performance of the program and affirmative affirmatively further fair housing this year, you guys did 00:20:02
again do our fair housing proclamation. We appreciate that and we look forward to continuing that effort as part of this program. 00:20:08
The annual Action plan provides an outline of the programs, activities, goals and objectives that the County plans to undertake 00:20:16
and support. 00:20:19
And so this plan that's before you today represents the 2023 annual action plan, which is year three of our consolidated plan, 00:20:23
which is identified from year 2021 to 2025. 00:20:29
The projects that you have identified as part of the 2023 Annual action plan. 00:20:35
Include a wealth county on demand transportation services for 60 plus ride. 00:20:39
I know it can. 00:20:44
ADA ramp project An Eaton nonconforming ADA ramp ramp replacement project. 00:20:46
Improvements to the Pier Senior Center. 00:20:52
Frederick Bridgets Village, which is a 40 unit affordable housing project. 00:20:55
And Firestones Old Town 88 Ramp Project. 00:21:00
And then of course, as part of this program, we have to show our administrative costs that are taken out of that as well. 00:21:03
So we, I guess at this point I would probably ask the chair if you could open the public hearing and we can invite the public to 00:21:10
comment on the needs of the the county. 00:21:14
OK, so so this is the time we come to a lot of public input concerning the 2023 annual action plan, which is a one year plan that 00:21:20
identified the needs of the community, develops a strategy to address the needs of the county in order to receive community 00:21:25
development block grant entitlement funds. And with that it's open to the public, with anybody from the public that wishes to 00:21:30
comment on this plan. 00:21:35
OK. 00:21:41
OK. 00:21:42
Yes. 00:21:44
Chairman Just for the record, this is also Docket #2023-54. 00:21:51
Good. Thank you. You're just calling it up during this time because it's the same subject. OK. Thank you. 00:21:58
Good morning, commissioners. My name is Steve Tates. I'm angry. 00:22:11
And. 00:22:14
Too bad. Clearly can't. 00:22:16
More effort from this, but I know Evans can. 00:22:20
And I would like to know too that. 00:22:23
You know for if it's housing and also healing Park, I think the. 00:22:27
To get you said something about transportation that they can so they can get in the Evans, Greeley or wherever they need to go and 00:22:33
be. 00:22:38
Can work with Greeley Evans Transit agree government to really well system from this grant. I would think he could do that finger. 00:22:43
Do you want me? Go ahead. OK, so as part of this process, Evans is one of our communities that participates in our CDBG program. 00:22:54
The City of Greeley is its own entitlement. They get their own funding separate from our urban county designation. So they get a 00:23:01
direct distribution of their own CDBG funding to administer for their communities needs. Obviously get is the Greeley Evans 00:23:08
Transit Service that provides transport transit. 00:23:15
Services to both communities. 00:23:22
Umm. 00:23:25
So essentially, these funds can't be duplicated where they're already receiving funds, if that makes sense, it does. 00:23:26
Well, I was thinking that we could have a route even though it's really even transit, but they could have a route from these funds 00:23:34
to go out to Hill and Park. So that's the 60 plus ride services for Evans would be available as well as future B Mobility they can 00:23:40
call up and they can schedule. 00:23:46
For all for sure, for all our unincorporated residents as well as the the residents that are participating in our CDBG program #2. 00:23:52
OK. OK. Thank you. Any other public comment? 00:24:02
29 O'clock closed public comment and three back to board. 00:24:08
It's I'm have some questions, Mr. Chair. So I just wanted to make sure. So this this one is the plan that we already discussed 00:24:12
earlier, right? I mean we had a. 00:24:16
In a recession and I think there was one public hearing already, correct. OK, alright, so that's the same one. 00:24:21
And can I ask a question on this one and the next one? I just want to make sure too, because there there was something going 00:24:27
around regarding. 00:24:31
Identifying housing stock and planning. That's not either of these two. 00:24:35
13 and 14, right? 00:24:40
This is the exact items that Elizabeth just mentioned that this board approved for the funding for this year. OK. Those six things 00:24:43
or whatever they were, yeah. 00:24:47
OK. 00:24:53
Do I need a motion to move the group? I would second that. OK move by Mr. James. Second by Mr. Ross to approve All in favor, Aye, 00:24:55
opposed motion carries. Thank you. Go on to #14. Consider Application for Federal assistance, Form for community development, 00:25:02
Block Grant 2023 Annual Action Plan and certification of compliance with Regulation forms and Authorized Chair design. 00:25:09
Elizabeth Radford Public Works. 00:25:17
So as part of our program year, we are required to fill out the, what I call the SF family forms that's required by the federal 00:25:19
government. These are the standard federal forms that we have to submit as our official application for the federal assistance. 00:25:27
The assurances, the certifications and everything that. 00:25:36
Are required by HUD along with the 2023 Annual Action Plan. So upon approval of the annual Action Plan, we have the ability then 00:25:40
to. 00:25:45
Authorized the chair signature on these forms to submit to HUD. This is the these are the forms that actually help them generate 00:25:50
the contract that we get with HUD to receive the the funding annually. 00:25:55
And so we would ask for your approval to submit these funds to HUD. 00:26:01
OK, questions, Mr. Chair. I move to approve second. 00:26:04
Mr. Ross second by Mr. **** to approve. All in favor. Aye, opposed. Motion carries. Thank you, Elizabeth. Thank you, Elizabeth 00:26:08

Public Works is requesting for this closure to be extended through August 11th. 00:26:27

94,000 / 10 years. 00:28:43
The agreement was approved by all 5 commissioners via a June 30th passed around. We recommend approval of this agreement. 00:28:49

What you saying no payback? Yes. Mike Freeman? Yes. Motion carries 4 to one with Commissioner Shane. You know who won the number 00:29:56
19? This is first reading of Code Ordinance 2023, Dash 10 in the matter of repealing the reenacting within this Chapter 3 Human 00:30:02
Resources of the Royal County Code Concealed Carry. 00:30:08
Chairman, this is some changes to. 00:30:15
Section 3-3-30. 00:30:19
Specifically subparagraph B to clarify that. 00:30:22
Employees are permitted to who have concealed. 00:30:27
Carry handgun permits. 00:30:32
Are allowed to have those weapons with them. 00:30:34
During work hours and on work property. 00:30:40
County property. 00:30:44
So the provision that's there, this clarifies that that's in fact the case. 00:30:46
It also clarifies that open carrying or unpermitted concealed carrying. 00:30:52
Of weapons is prohibited. 00:30:59
OK. 00:31:02
Morning. Any questions for staff? 00:31:03
OK, this is a public hearing. Is there anybody in the public that wishes to comment on Code Ordinance 2023 Dash 10? 00:31:06
OK. So you know public comment, I will bring it back to the board. 00:31:15
To prove I'm If you wouldn't mind since I worked on this I'm gonna move to approve it, but just a comment too that. 00:31:20
I brought this word for a reason. People do need to defend themselves on county property and. 00:31:26
I I would like us to actually move the constitutional carry at some point and work on that because we are a Second Amendment 00:31:33
sanctuary county. 00:31:36
And I think employees will use their best judgment and. 00:31:41
I was at I I moved in for this quarter. Code Ordinance 2023 Dash 09. 00:31:44

Ohh, I'm sorry 10. 00:31:52
No by Commissioner saying second by Commissioner Brock to approve all in favor Aye, opposed motion carries. 00:31:54
Concludes new business. We move on to planning. We have one item in the planning first reading of Code Order 2023-09 and the night 00:32:00
of repealing and reenacting with amendments Chapter 23 zoning of the Weld County Code Limited Event permits. Morning Tom. 00:32:06
Good morning, commissioners. Tom Parker, Department of Planning Services. 00:32:15
Happy to present on this particular ordinance dealing with their limited events permits as we've had multiple discussions over 00:32:19
this and and work sessions. Really the primary purpose of this permit is to allow property owners to have multiple events per 00:32:25
calendar year without having to go through. 00:32:32
Putting laborious process like a use by special review permit. We used to have this process in the code a number of years ago, but 00:32:39
we'd like to bring it back just because we're starting to see more of these types of temporary events, farm to table events, for 00:32:46
example, nonprofit events, charity events that we think that this permit could serve very well. 00:32:54
So the the ordinance that you have in Tyler before you really captures this the intent of this permit, but it is to allow property 00:33:03
owners. 00:33:08
Or any other types of organizations to have up to four events per calendar year. Or they could actually have 3 consecutive days 00:33:14
under this permit. 00:33:19
And it does really do capture a lot of. 00:33:26
You know, impacts to that particular event, as you can see in the ordinance. We put together a lot of performance standards in 00:33:34
here that address everything from water, sanitation, trash. 00:33:40
Medical emergency services, if there was such a big event that required something like that. 00:33:48
Has provisions in there for dust control, sound, lighting, parking, insurance, et cetera. 00:33:53
And so moving forward, we did take this to the. 00:34:03
Planning Commission. And right before the Planning Commission, we caught a small omission, which was that we had inadvertently 00:34:09
left off the C4 Commercial zoning District. So we when I presented that to Planning Commission, it was an easy fix. We put C4 back 00:34:15
in. You'll find that. 00:34:21
As part of the resolution, so we we put the C4 zoning district in there. 00:34:27
I do want to clarify though too that under this particular permit rodeos and racing events that those are still covered under a 00:34:32
use by special review. So if somebody wanted to come in for rodeo, this permit would not cover that. They would still have to go 00:34:38
through a use by special review permit under Chapter 23. 00:34:44
When I did present this in front of the Planning Commission, they did recommend unanimous approval at their July 11th meeting. 00:34:51
There was some discussion though on the guarantee section. 00:35:00
Of this permit. 00:35:04
And one of the things that we had discussed is that right now a financial guarantee is required. Jim Fletcher and my office 00:35:07
actually reached out to Larimer County who has a very similar permit. 00:35:12
Um. And in their permit, they don't make it a requirement, they just put in there that it's at the discretion of the county. 00:35:19
I'd like to propose that we amend that section which is found under section 23-18-90, subsection paragraph R, because right now it 00:35:28
talks about how they have to post a $3000 Shorty for any event over 250. 00:35:38
Or a $500 Shorty for any event between 100 and less than 250. So I kind of like to tweak that language to insert some language 00:35:48
that says may require that we don't have to really tweak too much more, but it still gives the direction to the commissioners. 00:35:57
Again, I think the whole point of this permit is to get people to apply for it so they're doing it the right way. I think some of 00:36:06
this stuff might be a little heavy-handed and and and maybe discourage some people to apply, especially for the smaller events 00:36:13
that that may not be able to put up $3000 or even or even 500, but it still leaves it up to the county's discretion. 00:36:19
So I just wanted to bring that to the board's attention that there are other counties that have a permit in place like this, but 00:36:26
they do not require a mandate that Shorty. It's just again at the discretion of the of the Board of County Commissioners that is 1 00:36:32
my one suggestion there. 00:36:38
We did. Our staff has has been really good at making sure that we can get this permit in place. So we have the actual application 00:36:44
that we put together. We do have to make a couple of tweaks to this if the commissioners agree to making some tweaks. 00:36:53
To the guarantee. The other thing I'd like to point out is that there is a notification component to this permit. We notify sound 00:37:02
rounding property owners within 500 feet. 00:37:08
There is a quick turn around time on this maximum of 20 days once staff has gone through and looked at the application, put it 00:37:14
together as a recommendation. These do actually come before the Board of County Commissioners. You guys have the ultimate say on 00:37:20
whether one of these gets approved or not. The beauty about this process too is if the first event. 00:37:27
Uh, doesn't go off very well. You don't have to approve any of the other events, so. 00:37:35
I did want to actually point that out as well. 00:37:42
So, having said all of that, um. 00:37:46
Staff does recommend that the Board of County Commissioners go ahead and approve this particular ordinance. 00:37:50
And finally, because we have a couple of these events in the queue that are ready to go later this month, we would like to make 00:37:57
sure we can roll this out after today and that is built into the to the resolution even though we still have to go through a three 00:38:03
reading process. 00:38:09
And this will be actually be rolled out and. 00:38:16
If if your approval on the on the first reading today. So with that said I'd be happy to answer any questions that the 00:38:20
Commissioners may have. 00:38:23
Those Board of the Commissioner, James, thank you Mr. Chair, thanks to Tom Staffing and Bruce for working hard on this. I think it 00:38:28
looks outstanding. 00:38:31
I just question the parlance for the attorney. 00:38:35
And I certainly agree with the changing the shell into a May. Can that be done at second reading or do we need to amend that now? 00:38:38
I would recommend you change that now. And I I agree with Tom on this. 00:38:44
Ohh. 00:38:51
On those temporary assemblage permits that we did over the years, I can remember only one. 00:38:52
Where we came real close to having to execute on a bond. 00:38:59
Because they had allowed trash flow and cause a problem, but they got out there and cleaned it up. 00:39:05
Um, the other ones. 00:39:13
Typically, it always is where. 00:39:15
The applicant is going. What is this and how do I do this and? 00:39:18
Um, I I think it's the risk is low. I think putting in May is a good idea. 00:39:23
So I'd recommend that you do that. 00:39:30
As to the. 00:39:33
It's a very last paragraph in the ordinance. 00:39:35
That allows for the pending ordinance doctrine. 00:39:38
To occur. So we put in there that. 00:39:41
It would be from this day forward that you would be. 00:39:44
Requiring these types of applications to come in and. 00:39:48
Tom has done a good job on. 00:39:52
Having his staff put together the application form. 00:39:55
For that. So they're ready to go. Yes, we are. 00:39:59
OK. So just so I understand, so anybody that would apply for one of these that permit is not granted by a year step by Utah and if 00:40:02
they all come in front of us. That's correct. OK. So if you would actually get one that there's red flags all over the place where 00:40:08
that would be the situation where we may want to say we wanna, we wanna bond. OK, Commissioner James Chair. Let me give this a go. 00:40:15
Hang on one second. I need to open it to the public. I would think you would do that after I I'm sorry. 00:40:21
Has to go ahead and end it, right. OK. I'm sorry. I thought you were gonna make motion just real quick. Can I just have one more 00:40:28
comment? We do have an A nominal application fee for this permit after having conversations with the board, it's $100. 00:40:35
That that is not included in this ordinance, but that will come before the Board of County Commissioners in a separate ordinance 00:40:43
when we tackle fees. So I just wanted to point that out to that. 00:40:47
OK. Thank you. 00:40:52
Commissioner James, This Chair I Move We Amend Code Ordinance, 2023, Dash 09. 00:40:54
Section 23/18/90. 00:41:00
A paragraph are to strike on line 3. 00:41:05
The word shall and change that to May 2nd. OK, then move by Commissioner James second by Commissioner Shane to amend. 00:41:11
The first reading of Code Resolution 2023-09. 00:41:18
All in favor, aye. Opposed motion carries. 00:41:23
OK. Any other questions for staff? 00:41:27
OK, with that then I will open it up to the public. Is everybody, the public that wishes to come up and discuss Code Ordinance 00:41:30
2023 Dash 09? 00:41:34
Hi, I'm Billy. 00:41:45
These meetings are sometimes interesting. Back on the Tom Parker's analysis of C4. For those of us who were sold, the C4 has an 00:41:48
entirely different meaning. It's an explosive C4, the builders building, clearing the Lucerne. 00:41:55
Thank you. 00:42:02
Alright, Any other public comment? 00:42:05
Singing group. Back to the board for the motion, Mr. Chair. Since I've worked on this also Commissioner Ross started that one. Go 00:42:09
ahead Commissioner. Roster Chair moved to approve first reading Court Ordinance 2309 as amended. 00:42:16
Second move by Mr. Ross, second by Commissioner Buck to approve Code Ordinance 2023-09. All in favor aye opposed comments on this. 00:42:24
Mr. Chair, opposed motion carries, yes. I just want to thank you so much for working on this young person in particular, but. 00:42:34
This is going to make it a lot easier for people to have events and it's going to streamline the process not only for a clerk to 00:42:42
the board, but the entire staff and for the customer, which is our citizens and taxpayers so. 00:42:47
Very honored to work with you on this as well. And and and. 00:42:53
The whole process where we didn't even have to apply for USR was completely. 00:42:56
Out of range and that would have been extremely expensive. A lot of people are just having fun on the table vents. They're having 00:43:00
the Talibans balls, another great example where they actually raise money for the Cancer Society. I mean, there's a lot of great 00:43:05
events that have been in Weld County and we should, we're always about freedom. I think that's the least. I hope we will continue 00:43:09
to do so. So this actually increases freedom. And so thank you so much for, for working on this and pushing through. Thank you, 00:43:14
ma'am. 00:43:18
Without that concludes planning, we do have public comment. Anybody that wishes to come up and discuss anything that was, is not 00:43:24
on our agenda. Just to be the time Mr. 00:43:28
Come on up. 00:43:34
Thanks. 00:43:40
And let my notes appear. 00:43:44
For the record, my name is Steve keeps increasing. 00:43:48
Umm. 00:43:51
Well, I kind of want it shortly. 00:43:55
And just speak back, you know we we have a pilot taxes, everybody pays a lot of taxes if you own a home or not. But if it's sales 00:43:58
tax, food tax, property tax and also I want to make a comment on the property tax. You know when somebody is buying a house, once 00:44:05
they paid it off, why should they have to pay taxes on the property to the house has already paid off. I I don't think that's fair 00:44:12
and right just like if you go in the store. 00:44:18
You buy something. 00:44:25
Then then you pay the tax on that and then you take it home and you don't continue paying tax on what you bought into store 00:44:27
because that's what Also you got utilities, lodging, dealership water rates or storm water impact fees, building permit fees, 00:44:33
license plate taxes. 00:44:40
And also state and federal taxes taxes taxes, taxes and that at times the this depends on what government entity. Likewise people 00:44:47
don't get representative but we pay all these taxes and we don't get the service like needs if it's transit infrastructure or 00:44:55
even. 00:45:02
Uh, some assistance in housing for people and various other things. 00:45:10
And yet we pay all these taxes. 00:45:17
Um. 00:45:20
You know and also too, but some for some entities give. 00:45:22
Tax breaks to big companies, but that takes away the funding to fix things or. 00:45:28
I have even been able to have. 00:45:35
Some benefits if it's the state or the federal government, and if you make a little bit over it, you don't get. 00:45:38
And you lose the benefit completely instead of maybe gradually and especially if you're my age, if it's Social Security, if it's 00:45:46
Medicaid, Medicare or other benefits. 00:45:53
In the loose financial freedom and and people feel like they're. 00:46:00
You know, they won, kept poor or homeless or or whatever. And I'm just thinking that. 00:46:05
But we need to invest the taxes into back into the people that makes the community, the state, the county and even this nation 00:46:13
with their religious nation on this planet. And yet we've got so many people are homeless or fighting and to stay in their home. 00:46:18
Thank you. 00:46:24
Good. 00:46:30
Any other public comment? 00:46:31
OK. 00:46:34
So you know, we will close public comment and we will adjourn at 941. We'll be back at 10:00. O'clock for language please. Thanks 00:46:35
everybody. 00:46:38
