CODE ORDINANCE #2024-04 (CONT'D)

PUBLIC COMMENT

All right, we'll go ahead and now convene with the regularly scheduled Board of County Commissioners meeting. It is again April 00:00:01
22nd, 2024. Five out of five commissioners are here and present. Minutes. Approval of minutes, April 8th, 2024, second. Motion by 00:00:09
Commissioner Buck for approval of the minutes, second by Commissioner James. Further discussion. 00:00:17
Done. All in favor signify by saying aye aye, all opposed, same sign and minutes approves 50 read ordinance by audio. Read code 00:00:25
ordinance 2024-04 by audio. Mr. Chair, move to read code ordinance 2024-04 by audio. Got a motion by Commissioner James to read 00:00:33
code ordinance 2024-04 by audio. Second by Commissioner Freeman. Further discussion hearing none All in favor signify by saying 00:00:40
aye aye, all opposed, same sign. 00:00:48
And that rose passes 5 to 0 amendments to the agenda. Any amendments to today's agenda, Mr. Chairman, moved to a resolution to 00:00:55
fully fund the Sheriff's Office. 00:01:01
I'm going to pass that out for us, please. 00:01:08
Mr. Chair, I will second that motion only as a way to show support, that I support the overall intent of fully funding the 00:01:12
sheriff's staffing proposals that we previously reviewed, but as you know, resolution is the incorrect method for funding the 00:01:18
budgetary changes. 00:01:24
So I am scheduling an ordinance reading for Wednesday meeting to properly take action for funding of the Sheriff's Office needs 00:01:31
those changes to be effective on July 1st 2024 if approved by a 2/3 majority. All right there's a motion on the floor for 00:01:38
resolution expression of support for fully funding Will County Sheriff's Office immediately for the sheriff's request from 00:01:46
commissioner saying second by Commissioner Buck further discussion. 00:01:54
Mr. Chair, so it an ordinance is a proper document because it shows our intent, because we've had other departments come forward 00:02:01
and ask for funding. I want to make sure that we prioritize what we need to be doing first, which is the role of county 00:02:08
government, the primary role of county government. Obviously there's a couple things we need to do first. One is. 00:02:15
Law enforcement, that's one of the most important things we can do. If we were gonna do a night watchman, government, law 00:02:22
enforcement, this would be the number one priority. So this puts our our priorities out there. I would urge a yes vote on this 00:02:28
because we've had funding come in. We need to do what the sheriff has asked us to do and fully fund his office. And we don't need 00:02:34
to do that by ordinance. We can just put funding into the budget first. 00:02:41
Mr. James, thank you. Mr. Chair, we all took a oath to uphold the uphold the charter and the ordinance of this county in the 00:02:48
charter section 1423. It indicates that we will amend and pass a budget by ordinance, a resolution. While well-intentioned and I 00:02:56
certainly agree with the sentiment, I'm on record as wanting to give Share Freedom the funds he needs to be a law enforcement 00:03:03
agency of choice in the state of Colorado. I respect sentiment I do not respect. 00:03:11
It Simply put it out of order. 00:03:20
Ordinance is the proper way to amend the agenda and I believe that we should discuss that as we move forward in the next few days. 00:03:21
So therefore, I will be a no on what I believe to be an improper mechanism of resolution. 00:03:27
Any other discussion, Mr. Freeman? We've all said that. In fact, we've had the conversation with all our staff looking into it. We 00:03:34
we've actually already agreed to fund the part of part of the commissioner, I mean the Sheriff Range's request for his deputized 00:03:41
officer and we've agreed to look into the 2025 budget on the rest. I'm more than happy to move that up. 00:03:49
In a process if that's what we need to do, but it absolutely needs to be in an ordinance, not a resolution. I agree it's this is 00:03:57
an improper resolution and so I will also be a no longer resolution. 00:04:02
Mr. Chair, just a second, Miss, saying I'm gonna go ahead and make comment. 00:04:07
I too, fully support law enforcement, the intent that we have let the sheriff know through conversations with him and his staff. 00:04:13
That's why we so briefly move forward on his deputized staff and we didn't let him know the intent to get everybody else taken 00:04:22
care of as well. I'm happy to. 00:04:27
Prioritize that further and get that speed up, but I agree this resolution would be the improper vehicle for that. It would need 00:04:33
to come the term of an ordinance. But so that's why I'll probably be at no on this motion for the amendment to the agenda missing 00:04:40
have further comment. Yes, I'm so glad this conversation initiated by a resolution. This discussion prompted funding for the 00:04:46
sheriff. However that mechanism is. 00:04:53
All right, all right. Any other comment? 00:05:01
Hearing none, all those in favor of amending the agenda to add the resolution as presented by Miss saying we'll have a roll call. 00:05:06
Vote please. 00:05:12

24-01 in the matter of repealing and reenacting with amendments, Chapter Eight, Public Works of the Law, Attorney Code, Appendix 00:13:28
8, O Functional classification map. 00:13:34
All right, Evan. Good morning, Good morning, Commissioners. Evan Pinkham with the Department of Planning Services. Here we are on 00:13:41
second reading of this item. This is the functional classification map. 00:13:47
Which is used as the official roadway plan, roadway plan for Weld County and is referred to in the not only the code, but in our 00:13:53
Weld County transportation plan, our 2045 plan as you can see on the screen there. So looking at roadway classification 00:14:01
definitions that are within this functional classification map, we basically have 3 classifications for roadways. We have arterial 00:14:08
roadways. 00:14:16
Collector roadways and local roadways. These arterial roadways are, as you can imagine, long and distance, have high continuity, 00:14:24
They serve large population centers and they are typically higher volumes of traffic on these roadways. 00:14:35
And we we typically do not have these roadways more than a closer than one mile apart collector roadways. These are shorter and 00:14:47
distance typically than arterial roadways. They serve less densely populated areas and typically traffic volumes on, on these are 00:14:54
less than arterial roadways but higher than local roadways. 00:15:02
Local roadways are short to moderate and distance. Typically they serve low, low population density and have low traffic volume on 00:15:10
those roadways. So basically when we're looking at these classifications, what it really comes down to is the type of Rd. the type 00:15:18
of right of way that we're looking at, at, at these different classifications. So as you can see for local roadways, we just have 00:15:25
that 60 feet of right of way on the on the road. 00:15:33
The with collector designation, we are looking at an additional 10 feet of future right of way on either side of that 60 foot 00:15:41
right of way and that would be for a total of 80 feet of future right of way on on the road that we would have in those locations. 00:15:50
For arterial roadways, the right of ways considerably higher with 140 feet of total future right of way, but existing right of way 00:15:59
would typically still be like 60 feet of right of way that we use to maintain the roadway. Setbacks for structures are measured 00:16:06
from these distances on a functional classification map based on these classifications and typically setbacks are 20 feet from the 00:16:13
future right away. 00:16:20
For structures. 00:16:28
So looking at our code Section 88-10, we're looking at the functional classification map and our transportation plan. And in that 00:16:31
portion of the code, it's recommended that we update our functional classification map every two years. And the last time that we 00:16:41
updated this map was actually in 2020, so a little bit overdue. So we see these changes that we're looking at approach looking to. 00:16:50
Consider here important to ensuring that we're we're keeping this document up to date. 00:17:00
So getting into the updates that we're looking at on our 2024 functional classification map, here we are looking at first. 00:17:09
And upgrade, you know, would be a future realignment of World Canada 13 and this is for a future arterial roadway. You can see it 00:17:20
in the dotted red outlined by yellow there on the screen. 00:17:27
But essentially this is a project just northwest of Johnstown that we're looking at constructing in the next couple of years, next 00:17:35
few years. We're partnering on this project with Laramie County and Johnstown and this would realign Wealth County Road 13. 00:17:42
At 12:50 and shift the alignment to basically the western alignment that was paved within the last few years. So definitely needed 00:17:50
improvement and we're looking to update our maps to show this future improvement. And then once the improvements completed, we 00:17:57
would it would just be an arterial roadway in that location then. 00:18:05
So then moving along, the next upgrade we're looking at to the map would be the Web County Way. This is just east of our location. 00:18:14
Now this is a roadway that was constructed in the last few years and serves quite a bit of traffic on that roadway. We just 00:18:22
haven't had a chance yet to upgrade this because of the last update was in 2020 and this was constructed since that time. So we're 00:18:29
looking to just upgrade this from local to collector. 00:18:37
In this location and this would be between Hwy. 85 and O street there. 00:18:44
On the world Kenny way. 00:18:51
So they're moving along. The next upgrade we're looking at here is on Kenya Road seven. This would just be basically east of 00:18:53
Longmont. 00:18:57
Northwest of Firestone or West of Firestone and South of Meade. This is a 12/7 at just north of Weld County Road 26. 00:19:03
So it's currently a collector roadway and we're looking to upgrade this to an arterial roadway. This would match the 00:19:15
classification of Web County Road 7 all along the way. And it would, as these municipalities annex, it would benefit them to have 00:19:23
this have us showing this larger classification in this location. 00:19:30
So then moving along, the next one we're looking at here is World County Road 90. This would be between Web Kenya 13 and Web Kenya 00:19:40
29. 00:19:44
You're looking at upgrading from a local roadway to a collector roadway. There's a portion that was annexed by 7th in the middle 00:19:50
you'll see there and they maintain that roadway. So that's why there's a part missing there and on the screen. But looking at this 00:19:58
upgrade because this is a key connection between the town of Pierce and Lynnwood County over to Wellington and Fort Fort Collins 00:20:06
as well. So again, looking at upgrading from local to collector on this road. 00:20:14
Next we have an upgrade of Web camera 21 from local to collector. This would be between Hwy. 66 and just South of Canada 34. So 00:20:24
this oddly enough was a section of roadway that was local roadway, but with the classification of roadways surrounding it just 00:20:34
makes a lot more sense having it as a collector roadway. It functions as a collector roadway and just. 00:20:44
Identifying it as such in this location. 00:20:55
Is what we're we're looking at here so. 00:21:00
That runs up the updates that we're looking at this round of functional classification updates. And this is just an image of the 00:21:03
PDF of the updated document that we're looking to adopt through this process. And then next we have just that adoption timeline 00:21:13
and here we are in the second reading. Third reading would be May 13th, 2024 and. 00:21:23
Yeah, that would be all that I have for my presentation, but I'd be happy to answer any questions. Excellent. Thank you. Have any 00:21:33
questions for Evan? 00:21:37
All right, I just want to make a comment. Thanks for all your hard work. Again, thank you for the town hall bringing in the 00:21:43
residents so that we could get their input on this and and get to a better map for what we need right now. So I appreciate that. 00:21:49
And with that, I would entertain a motion. Mr. Mayor, I'm going to be a no vote for today. I received some complaints from some 00:21:54
constituents about maybe a private property takings with the law. 00:22:00
So I'm gonna look into that. Alright, roll call. I need a motion first. 00:22:06
Oh, yeah. Thank you very much. This is a public hearing. Thank you, Mr. James. 00:22:12
If anybody from the public wishes to come forth, express any concerns or comments that they'd like to share with us regarding this 00:22:17
functional classification map and this code ordinance, please come forward to the podium, state your name, your address, and keep 00:22:22
your comments to 3 minutes, please. 00:22:27
Anybody wish to make any comments on this today? 00:22:33
All right, seeing none, I'll go ahead and close public comment. Again, thank you, Mr. James. And with that and I'll now entertain 00:22:37
a motion. 00:22:40
Move to approve second motion from Commissioner Freeman for approval of Code Ordinance 2024, Dash 01 second by Commissioner James. 00:22:45
Further discussion. 00:22:50
Hearing none. Roll call. Vote please. 00:22:56
Mike Freeman, yes. Scott Kane, yes. What are you saying? No payback. Kevin Ross, yes, let the record reflect Code Ordinance 00:22:59
2024-01 passes on second reading 4 to one with commissioner saying being Lenovo. That concludes new business. Thank you, Evan. 00:23:07
Thank you. Brings us to planning item number one, first reading of code Ordinance 2024-04 in the matter of repealing and 00:23:15
reenacting with amendments Chapter 23, zoning of the World County Code. 00:23:22
Accessory dwelling units in R1 revisions. 00:23:31
All right, guys. 00:23:37
Yours. 00:23:39
All right. Good morning, Commissioners, Maximated department planning services. 00:23:42
In front of you today is Ordinance 20/24/04. The purpose of this audience is revised several sections of Chapter 23 of the Well 00:23:46
County Code. Certain changes in minor cleanup items. Other changes bringing out Well County Code and compliance with House Bill 00:23:52
24-1007 which is related to residential occupancy limits in House Bill 24-1152 related to accessory dwelling units and the 00:23:59
proposed changes will assist with streamlining processes and helping further refine what could be considered in urban, rural 00:24:05
transitional zone. 00:24:11
Staff has not received any correspondence from general public or other municipalities following Planning Commission. 00:24:48
The ordinance will do the following changes to the definitions so they remove the definition on zero quarters. These will fall 00:24:56
under accessory dwelling units. Provide the definition of dwelling duplex and dwelling multifamily to allow these dwellings to be 00:25:02
pre manufactured in a factory same as a single family and remove the limit of occupied by one living unit. In other words allowing 00:25:08
these dwellings to be manufactured homes. Revise the definition of doing single family to simply a building containing 1 dwelling 00:25:14
unit. 00:25:20
I'm going to lose the definition of family unit to match House Bill 24-1152. Remove the definitions of family foster care home and 00:25:27
living unit needs with the limit on the number of unrelated residents and a dwelling unit which will be in compliance with House 00:25:33
Bill 24 Dash 01107. 00:25:40
Updates Updates to definition on commercial junkyard to clarify the screening requirement. Updates the definition of screening to 00:25:50
remove this sentence above about pre approval of a screening plan by the planning department prior to installation. Updates to the 00:25:55
definitions will assist being in line with certain house bills and will simplify code and in turn make it easier to understand for 00:26:00
the public and staff. 00:26:06
Next slides breakdown these own districts and the changes happening and each staff is proposing following changes to the 00:26:12
agricultural zone district which is replaced auxiliary quarters and second single family drawings with accessory drawing units AD 00:26:19
use update non commercial junk car provisions which removes requirement for pre approval of screening. 00:26:25
Staffs proposing from chances of state zoning district which is to allow the ability to have one accessory dwelling unit just to 00:26:33
know currently the state zone allows us to recorders, so this will allow essentially a second home as well. 00:26:39
Staff proposing the following changes to the residential zone Districts General cleanup in Section 23-3-100. Allowing one car 00:26:48
container per lot on online properties as long as they're screened. Allowing property owners to store belongings outdoors, not 00:26:53
commercial junk yards on R1 properties as long as they're screened. 00:26:59
Allowing the ability to have one accessory doing it on R1R2R5 properties as long as they're accessory to single family home. 00:27:06
Allowing the ability to apply for use by special review permit for more than the number of in units allowed in section 23-3160H1, 00:27:15
which does not apply to household pets. 00:27:20
Here's just a visual reminder of the aliens are currently allowed in Arlington District. So does code change still allows you to 00:27:26
have two in units per lot, but with the ability to apply for USR? 00:27:31
To have more. 00:27:37
Going back to the R1 residential zone district uses, we wanted to show the breakdown of the current uses, accessory uses and used 00:27:40
by special review uses. 00:27:45
So as you can see this is a current usage and revisions being requested for this. 00:27:50
Here's the current accessory uses and the proposed accessory uses which is the one car container, the building for a non 00:27:56
commercial junkyard and accessory dawn unit. Just comparing the two. 00:28:01
Then here is the existing newspaper special review permit uses and then the addition of the more than allowed animal units. 00:28:08
So as Richard produced in the new term accessory drawing unit, Adu would replace like another quarters and second single family 00:28:18
homes. This new term in use will not require zoning permit or USR, but would be considered use by right with certain standards and 00:28:25
would only require a building permit in the agricultural estate R1R2 and R5 zoom districts. This suggested change in lines with 00:28:31
House Bill 24-1152. And to clarify, House Bill 24 Dash 1152 does not allow the ability to deny Adus and zones that allow single 00:28:37
family dwellings. 00:28:44
But you still must meet certain criteria and standards. 00:28:50
More information regarding it on our web page. More information regarding those notices of the ordinance could be found at the 00:30:04
Legal and Public Notice webpage. And then of course, you can watch these hearings for the ordinances by going to the BOCC web 00:30:08
page. 00:30:12
Again, the purpose of this ordinance is the following reasons, which is revised several sections of Chapter 23 of the World County 00:30:19
Code. Certain changes and minor cleanup bring codes into compliance with House Bill 24-1007 and House Bill 24-1152, help further 00:30:27
refine or define the Urban Rural Transition Zone and assist and streamline certain processes. 00:30:34
Planning Commission recommended that the Board of County Commissioner Commissioners approve Ordinance 2024 of four. In addition to 00:30:44
this recommendation recommendation, staff is recommending a cleanup item to help clarify the septic requirements for an accessory 00:30:50
going unit, which is refining where septic permits allowed to serve a dwelling. A new septic permit may be required for an Adu. 00:30:56
This change has been reflected in the draft ordinance in front of you today. 00:31:02
And again, just this came from a question regarding septics being allowed in the residential zone districts, which staff is not 00:31:09
supportive and supports requiring public water and sewer for 80 use in the residential zone districts. With that, I'm happy to 00:31:15
answer any questions, see if we have any questions for Max. Yes, Mr. Chair. 00:31:21
I just want to double make sure on this because we heard foster home is care home is being taken out. We know foster. 00:31:28
Is occurring in homes, is the group home kind of the definition that falls under now since we're leaving that in? 00:31:37
So essentially, yeah, we're really the definitions because it's becoming less defined and it's just essentially being allowed. 00:31:45
We're we're loosening the new House bill essentially changed the definition to where you didn't need to differentiate the foster 00:31:54
home from a family. So we are essentially amending the code to be in compliance with that House bill. OK, I just want to make sure 00:32:00
that was clear so people didn't hear that and say, Oh my gosh, I'm not selling foster care so. 00:32:06
Thank you. 00:32:13
Any other questions for staff? 00:32:14
All right. At this time, this is a public hearing, so if anybody wishes to have any comments regarding Code Ordinance 2024-04, 00:32:16
again, please come forward to the microphone, state your name, your address, and leave your comments to 3 minutes. But now is the 00:32:22
time to get those comments on the record. 00:32:28
Does anybody wish to make comment? 00:32:35
Good morning. 00:32:44
Bob Walters, Did you want my address, please? 2144 Bluebell Ave. Greeley. 00:32:46
My question about this and I know that for the sake of time they race through. 00:32:53
And read through this stuff. But you had a work session month or so ago and we had, we the public, a few of us were there and we 00:32:59
had a lot of questions about the change. But at that meeting, we weren't allowed to speak. So you had it directed the planning 00:33:06
director to set up like a town hall meeting, a community meeting. And that never happened, even though we called in many times 00:33:14
asking when is the meeting going to be? Where is the meeting going to be? Because we had a lot of questions about this. 00:33:21
Is this going to replace our request to change the zoning in East Greeley to AG to match the land usage? We just had a lot of 00:33:29
questions and we were waiting for that meeting to happen and it and it never happened. Can you can you comment on that? This does 00:33:37
not change the changing of zone that some residents were requesting. 00:33:44
At that town hall meeting that we hosted, this is separate from that because when we do a code ordinance, just as I'm sure you're 00:33:52
aware about, this affects the whole county, right? So you're talking about a very specific area east of Greeley, I believe is, is 00:33:59
what you're referring to with that work session that we hosted these code ordinance changes this week. This changes everything for 00:34:06
everybody across the board from from the county right now what we did. 00:34:13
Say is reach out to planning, have them answer any questions that you have is they're continuing to work through it as they were 00:34:22
getting a gauge of how many people are still wanting to do. 00:34:27
Zone change and things to that nature. This may change some people's minds saying that maybe some of their concerns are addressed 00:34:34
with this code ordinance change. They may not feel like they they need to go forth with that zone change. I can't answer on their 00:34:42
behalf, nor would I ever or ever try to, right. So, but your issue I would say is separate from this. However, this probably has 00:34:50
impacts. It has an impact and, and just listening to my neighbors. 00:34:58
Again, there was just. 00:35:06
There was a lot of questions that I think a town hall meeting or about this topic could have helped out a lot because some people 00:35:08
are neither in limbo like well, we don't know, should we just? 00:35:14
OK, sign off on this and just be good and go on. Or should we proceed with the change of zoning? So you know, we, we really, we 00:35:21
really would have appreciated that meeting that you had requested happen. I think where we're why we haven't done a town hall yet 00:35:27
is because everybody's case is individual and specific and we can't get in those specifics at a town hall with the commissioners 00:35:34
there because ultimately we're the hearing board on that if they come in front of us. And so that's why we've instructed people to 00:35:40
take those individual questions. 00:35:47
To our planning staff so that they can get those questions addressed particularly to their matter. And we don't put any case that 00:35:53
would come in front of the well county commissioners in jeopardy of of not being able to be heard. OK. And I appreciate that and I 00:35:59
think the confusion out there was. 00:36:05
Was well, we'll just wait for the meeting to ask our questions and I think a lot of people may not have come forward to ask those 00:36:11
questions because they were waiting in lieu of the meeting. See what I mean? I have some questions for Bob just real quick and 00:36:17
also just hearing what the chair said I'm I'm a little concerned that I know we have to change via the laws that are being passed 00:36:23
but. 00:36:29
At the same time, that should not be an end run to what the citizens in East Korea want, which my question to you is, I know 00:36:35
you're aware that a change in act and by the way, we have the ability to change everyone who wants to act right now. 00:36:43
As a Florida County Commissioner, since it's in our code, my question to you is, I, I know this won't resolve everything, but do 00:36:52
you think this will resolve most of the issues that your neighbors are having right now with the violations with the planning 00:36:57
department? Well, here's here's what I hear from them. 00:37:03
It may it may help. 00:37:09
With some of that today. 00:37:13
If they just sign off and say OK, we're good with it, we're not gonna, we don't want to move forward with maybe the change of 00:37:16
zoning, what does that do to our property value in the future? 00:37:20
For even if how we want to use it now, we want to add more animals or you know, there's more about this than just animals and 00:37:25
stuff. There's all kinds of farm implement machinery and stuff that are sitting on people's property that they want to keep and 00:37:31
there's just a lot of stuff with it I. 00:37:37
So again, I just think there's a lot of confusion and they don't know which way to go because they don't understand all of. 00:37:43
A fine print of what you just presented. So I just think there's just still a lot of confusion. So sounds like we still need that 00:37:51
town hall that the planning director was directed to have and that still hasn't occurred yet. I think it would be tremendously 00:37:56
helpful. 00:38:01
OK, I'd like to know when that's occurring. 00:38:07
Elizabeth Rafferty answered a question. Please, When did you receive a direction from the rest of the board? 00:39:50
At a work session Restate. Please restate your question. I'm sorry, when did you you decided yourself you received direction for 00:39:55
board not to have the town hall meeting when I did not say that I absolutely did not. 00:40:00
What I stated is that at the last work session, the board said they wanted to proceed with first reading and get feedback based on 00:40:09
that. I don't know that there has been any determination on whether or not you continue to have another meeting. I'm sure that's 00:40:15
not what was on the recording correctly. 00:40:20
It was the direction to have a town housing. 00:40:26
Max, So this this Town Meeting component concept is to elaborate on the changes being proposed today. 00:40:30
I held all those pre op meetings with every applicant that was proposing that changes own and I broke down the changes on process 00:40:39
and the changes to the code being proposed. So and they I give them opportunity one-on-one to ask me questions that they felt they 00:40:46
needed to ask. Now if there's questions or thoughts that came up following that meeting, I cannot. 00:40:54
Control if they want to reach out to me or not regarding that, but I gave everyone who had an opportunity to, you know, that 00:41:02
submitted applications, you know, ask questions about the code change and the change zone process. 00:41:08
So that's I'm kind of confused in terms of the public meeting, I don't know, I don't think we have a problem holding one of those 00:41:15
again to elaborate on what was elaborate on those pre application meetings. 00:41:20
They could call you get those questions answered, addressed for their specific situation. And again I want to elaborate, you 00:42:00
mentioned this earlier, that is just the East Greeley area. This is for all of this is for all zone change, all zones that are in 00:42:05
in this ordinance. 00:42:11
And there are other zone districts that are impacted by this ordinance, but specifically speaking to East Greeley area. 00:42:17
Yes, I've met with them. I spoke with them. And if I was not? 00:42:24
Clear enough to them. I apologize for that. But again, I'm here to help the public so happy to answer any questions. So I did have 00:42:28
my meeting and it was tremendously helpful and I appreciate what they did, the steps they took. The problem here is. 00:42:37
We went in to a pre app meeting for a change of AG. 00:42:46
And then we were told and then then it kind of the topic kind of switched to the R1, the other folks out there who are on the 00:42:51
fence of whether they should throw the preap out to go to AG. 00:42:58
They aren't aware of this. 00:43:06
One change so they wouldn't have, they wouldn't have known to come in. 00:43:09
The reason a lot of people didn't feel that pre app out, the biggest question was because you all said that we were, we could 00:43:16
split the $3000 application fee, but we would all have to individually pay for a survey. The big question is how much is the 00:43:23
survey going to cost? And we haven't been able to figure that out yet. We had a meeting set up with them, then I couldn't make 00:43:30
that meeting. So we haven't been able to figure that out yet. But that's one reason why we're only 50 applications. 00:43:38
I reminded we had 96% of the people in East Greeley initially signed the petition to change the zoning from residential to AG to 00:43:46
match the land usage. That's a lot of people. But then again, a lot of them have not signed that pre application thing because 00:43:53
they're just kind of like, OK, now what do we do? We got this R1 thing. Does that take place? There's just a lot of confusion. So 00:44:01
I think some type of meeting for a group would have helped out tremendously. 00:44:08
I think we need to, I think we'll need to work with staff and figure out how that meeting looks. Obviously because of it's going 00:44:17
to get into specific questions. My understanding would be probably not appropriate for commissioners to be there because we could 00:44:23
invalidate hearings in front of us. But I think that's something we can work with our planning director and her staff on maybe a 00:44:29
work session or whatnot, figure out what that type of meeting looks like. Does that. Would you be willing to to do that, 00:44:35
Elizabeth? 00:44:41
Behind closed doors, that really bothers me. 00:45:18
No, thank you. 00:45:22
Does anybody else wish to make comment today? Yes, ma'am. Come on up. Don't forget to state your name and address for the record, 00:45:25
please. Good morning. Good morning. My name is Colin, 13617 Elmore Rd. 00:45:31
Regarding this zoning, I have a property that was years ago again it was changed over to R1 and in this. 00:45:38
Accessory dwelling unit. I have a septic system but now I'm R1. I have just shy of five acres. 00:45:50
And in here it states that if I'm R1 I must have septic. 00:45:58
And I must have, and then I must have sewer, I must have city water in order to do an accessory dwelling unit. 00:46:03
Umm, the changes in the recommendations that he put up on the board. 00:46:10
It just says where it's permitted to have a septic system, it doesn't change any of the zoning. So at all one, having a larger 00:46:18
property, an accessory dwelling unit would benefit that property, but it has a septic that makes me completely exempt from this. 00:46:27
Change. 00:46:37
And I think it should be looked at. 00:46:38
Is that accurate and how she's interpreting that? Yeah. So currently in the R1 or any residential zone district, you cannot have 00:46:41
an accessory drawing unit, whether that's a second single family home or auxiliary quarters, AKA Adu. 00:46:48
Would this code change is proposing to allow that? But with that being said, you have to have public water and public sewer 00:46:57
because it's all one zone district. They ask from the public is can you look at that for lots that are larger maybe that are zoned 00:47:05
R1 or you know, zoned something other than agricultural or state? 00:47:12
To allow the septic, the ability for septic, that's the ask, right? Yeah. 00:47:20
OK. Thank you for your comments. That's something that we can do. 00:47:27
I mean it's per the code, I would recommend staff would recommend against that because the R1 zone district, the residential zone 00:47:32
districts are urban in nature and that's the point of them. But the issue being that typically the minimum lot size is 6000 square 00:47:40
feet and essentially to get a septic multiple septics on a 6000 square foot lot is is going to be difficult for. 00:47:49
Probably the health department being able to allow. 00:47:59
But there are, but there are exceptions for larger properties like my own that was AG at one time that you guys changed over to 00:48:03
R1. 00:48:07
That was zoned R1 in 1961. Yeah, we didn't change anything except for in 1961. Mr. Freeman's correct with that. I don't know what 00:48:12
you that took place. Mags was again, this is similar to the East Greeley situation where the zoning just didn't exist and then it 00:48:18
was established. OK. 00:48:24
Two parcels and the front parcel was our one. That parcel was egg. 00:48:30
County came in and changed back parcel to R1. 00:48:35
So that makes my 4 1/2 plus acres. 00:48:39
Unavailable for this. 00:48:45
Opportunity, which it is a good opportunity. 00:48:48
I appreciate it. Anything else? No, I'd just like for you to consider it. Thank you. Thank you. 00:48:53
Anybody else have public comment that they wish to make? 00:48:59
All right. With that, we'll go ahead and close public comment. I'll bring Code Ordinance 2024-04 back to the board. 00:49:03
Any discussion, Mr. James? 00:49:15
All right, I got a motion for approval of Code Ordinance 2024-04 from Commissioner James. Is there a second? I'll 2nd I'll second 00:49:51
it, but I would like to have a work session on. 00:49:56
A million with the other all one zone districts have the ability to override things that I think a lot of them built in an all one 00:51:19
zone on purpose because they intentionally wanted to be an all one zone. This will not impact them. I will actually support this 00:51:25
first reading today. 00:51:31
Any other comment? 00:51:38
The only thing I that is that I too would come in planning staff for putting this together with all the legislative changes that 00:51:40
have coming forward through the planning process. I appreciate you guys getting those worked in and adopted into code so that 00:51:47
we're in conformity there. I think you guys have addressed it. I would echo Commissioner Freemans sentiments, understanding how 00:51:54
HOA's operate and still protecting neighborhoods that may not wish to have some of this in. They can still do so. 00:52:01
And with that, I'll go ahead. We'll do roll call. Vote for it, please. 00:52:09
At ctv@weld.gov Or you can always come down in person and chat with us at any time. Does anybody have any public comment today, 00:52:53
Mr. Chair? First I I moved to remove the 15 minute, one minute and arbitrary vote from it. 00:52:59
How many people do we have wanting to talk in public comments? Did you mind raising your hand? 00:53:06
I think we're. 00:53:12
So that no second that dies and with that seeing no one wanting to come forward for public comment, we will go ahead, close public 00:53:14
comment and adjourn. Thank you everybody. Appreciate your time here. 00:53:19

All right, we'll go ahead and now convene with the regularly scheduled Board of County Commissioners meeting. It is again April 00:00:01
22nd, 2024. Five out of five commissioners are here and present. Minutes. Approval of minutes, April 8th, 2024, second. Motion by 00:00:09
Commissioner Buck for approval of the minutes, second by Commissioner James. Further discussion. 00:00:17
Done. All in favor signify by saying aye aye, all opposed, same sign and minutes approves 50 read ordinance by audio. Read code 00:00:25
ordinance 2024-04 by audio. Mr. Chair, move to read code ordinance 2024-04 by audio. Got a motion by Commissioner James to read 00:00:33
code ordinance 2024-04 by audio. Second by Commissioner Freeman. Further discussion hearing none All in favor signify by saying 00:00:40
aye aye, all opposed, same sign. 00:00:48
And that rose passes 5 to 0 amendments to the agenda. Any amendments to today's agenda, Mr. Chairman, moved to a resolution to 00:00:55
fully fund the Sheriff's Office. 00:01:01
I'm going to pass that out for us, please. 00:01:08
Mr. Chair, I will second that motion only as a way to show support, that I support the overall intent of fully funding the 00:01:12
sheriff's staffing proposals that we previously reviewed, but as you know, resolution is the incorrect method for funding the 00:01:18
budgetary changes. 00:01:24
So I am scheduling an ordinance reading for Wednesday meeting to properly take action for funding of the Sheriff's Office needs 00:01:31
those changes to be effective on July 1st 2024 if approved by a 2/3 majority. All right there's a motion on the floor for 00:01:38
resolution expression of support for fully funding Will County Sheriff's Office immediately for the sheriff's request from 00:01:46
commissioner saying second by Commissioner Buck further discussion. 00:01:54
Mr. Chair, so it an ordinance is a proper document because it shows our intent, because we've had other departments come forward 00:02:01
and ask for funding. I want to make sure that we prioritize what we need to be doing first, which is the role of county 00:02:08
government, the primary role of county government. Obviously there's a couple things we need to do first. One is. 00:02:15
Law enforcement, that's one of the most important things we can do. If we were gonna do a night watchman, government, law 00:02:22
enforcement, this would be the number one priority. So this puts our our priorities out there. I would urge a yes vote on this 00:02:28
because we've had funding come in. We need to do what the sheriff has asked us to do and fully fund his office. And we don't need 00:02:34
to do that by ordinance. We can just put funding into the budget first. 00:02:41
Mr. James, thank you. Mr. Chair, we all took a oath to uphold the uphold the charter and the ordinance of this county in the 00:02:48
charter section 1423. It indicates that we will amend and pass a budget by ordinance, a resolution. While well-intentioned and I 00:02:56
certainly agree with the sentiment, I'm on record as wanting to give Share Freedom the funds he needs to be a law enforcement 00:03:03
agency of choice in the state of Colorado. I respect sentiment I do not respect. 00:03:11
It Simply put it out of order. 00:03:20
Ordinance is the proper way to amend the agenda and I believe that we should discuss that as we move forward in the next few days. 00:03:21
So therefore, I will be a no on what I believe to be an improper mechanism of resolution. 00:03:27
Any other discussion, Mr. Freeman? We've all said that. In fact, we've had the conversation with all our staff looking into it. We 00:03:34
we've actually already agreed to fund the part of part of the commissioner, I mean the Sheriff Range's request for his deputized 00:03:41
officer and we've agreed to look into the 2025 budget on the rest. I'm more than happy to move that up. 00:03:49
In a process if that's what we need to do, but it absolutely needs to be in an ordinance, not a resolution. I agree it's this is 00:03:57
an improper resolution and so I will also be a no longer resolution. 00:04:02
Mr. Chair, just a second, Miss, saying I'm gonna go ahead and make comment. 00:04:07
I too, fully support law enforcement, the intent that we have let the sheriff know through conversations with him and his staff. 00:04:13
That's why we so briefly move forward on his deputized staff and we didn't let him know the intent to get everybody else taken 00:04:22
care of as well. I'm happy to. 00:04:27
Prioritize that further and get that speed up, but I agree this resolution would be the improper vehicle for that. It would need 00:04:33
to come the term of an ordinance. But so that's why I'll probably be at no on this motion for the amendment to the agenda missing 00:04:40
have further comment. Yes, I'm so glad this conversation initiated by a resolution. This discussion prompted funding for the 00:04:46
sheriff. However that mechanism is. 00:04:53
All right, all right. Any other comment? 00:05:01
Hearing none, all those in favor of amending the agenda to add the resolution as presented by Miss saying we'll have a roll call. 00:05:06
Vote please. 00:05:12
Mike Freeman, No. Scott Dream? No. Lori saying Perry back? Kevin Ross? No. Let the record reflect that that amendment to the 00:05:19

24-01 in the matter of repealing and reenacting with amendments, Chapter Eight, Public Works of the Law, Attorney Code, Appendix 00:13:28
8, O Functional classification map. 00:13:34
All right, Evan. Good morning, Good morning, Commissioners. Evan Pinkham with the Department of Planning Services. Here we are on 00:13:41
second reading of this item. This is the functional classification map. 00:13:47
Which is used as the official roadway plan, roadway plan for Weld County and is referred to in the not only the code, but in our 00:13:53
Weld County transportation plan, our 2045 plan as you can see on the screen there. So looking at roadway classification 00:14:01
definitions that are within this functional classification map, we basically have 3 classifications for roadways. We have arterial 00:14:08
roadways. 00:14:16
Collector roadways and local roadways. These arterial roadways are, as you can imagine, long and distance, have high continuity, 00:14:24
They serve large population centers and they are typically higher volumes of traffic on these roadways. 00:14:35
And we we typically do not have these roadways more than a closer than one mile apart collector roadways. These are shorter and 00:14:47
distance typically than arterial roadways. They serve less densely populated areas and typically traffic volumes on, on these are 00:14:54
less than arterial roadways but higher than local roadways. 00:15:02
Local roadways are short to moderate and distance. Typically they serve low, low population density and have low traffic volume on 00:15:10
those roadways. So basically when we're looking at these classifications, what it really comes down to is the type of Rd. the type 00:15:18
of right of way that we're looking at, at, at these different classifications. So as you can see for local roadways, we just have 00:15:25
that 60 feet of right of way on the on the road. 00:15:33
The with collector designation, we are looking at an additional 10 feet of future right of way on either side of that 60 foot 00:15:41
right of way and that would be for a total of 80 feet of future right of way on on the road that we would have in those locations. 00:15:50
For arterial roadways, the right of ways considerably higher with 140 feet of total future right of way, but existing right of way 00:15:59
would typically still be like 60 feet of right of way that we use to maintain the roadway. Setbacks for structures are measured 00:16:06
from these distances on a functional classification map based on these classifications and typically setbacks are 20 feet from the 00:16:13
future right away. 00:16:20
For structures. 00:16:28
So looking at our code Section 88-10, we're looking at the functional classification map and our transportation plan. And in that 00:16:31
portion of the code, it's recommended that we update our functional classification map every two years. And the last time that we 00:16:41
updated this map was actually in 2020, so a little bit overdue. So we see these changes that we're looking at approach looking to. 00:16:50
Consider here important to ensuring that we're we're keeping this document up to date. 00:17:00
So getting into the updates that we're looking at on our 2024 functional classification map, here we are looking at first. 00:17:09
And upgrade, you know, would be a future realignment of World Canada 13 and this is for a future arterial roadway. You can see it 00:17:20
in the dotted red outlined by yellow there on the screen. 00:17:27
But essentially this is a project just northwest of Johnstown that we're looking at constructing in the next couple of years, next 00:17:35
few years. We're partnering on this project with Laramie County and Johnstown and this would realign Wealth County Road 13. 00:17:42
At 12:50 and shift the alignment to basically the western alignment that was paved within the last few years. So definitely needed 00:17:50
improvement and we're looking to update our maps to show this future improvement. And then once the improvements completed, we 00:17:57
would it would just be an arterial roadway in that location then. 00:18:05
So then moving along, the next upgrade we're looking at to the map would be the Web County Way. This is just east of our location. 00:18:14
Now this is a roadway that was constructed in the last few years and serves quite a bit of traffic on that roadway. We just 00:18:22
haven't had a chance yet to upgrade this because of the last update was in 2020 and this was constructed since that time. So we're 00:18:29
looking to just upgrade this from local to collector. 00:18:37
In this location and this would be between Hwy. 85 and O street there. 00:18:44
On the world Kenny way. 00:18:51
So they're moving along. The next upgrade we're looking at here is on Kenya Road seven. This would just be basically east of 00:18:53
Longmont. 00:18:57
Northwest of Firestone or West of Firestone and South of Meade. This is a 12/7 at just north of Weld County Road 26. 00:19:03
So it's currently a collector roadway and we're looking to upgrade this to an arterial roadway. This would match the 00:19:15
classification of Web County Road 7 all along the way. And it would, as these municipalities annex, it would benefit them to have 00:19:23
this have us showing this larger classification in this location. 00:19:30
So then moving along, the next one we're looking at here is World County Road 90. This would be between Web Kenya 13 and Web Kenya 00:19:40
29. 00:19:44
You're looking at upgrading from a local roadway to a collector roadway. There's a portion that was annexed by 7th in the middle 00:19:50
you'll see there and they maintain that roadway. So that's why there's a part missing there and on the screen. But looking at this 00:19:58
upgrade because this is a key connection between the town of Pierce and Lynnwood County over to Wellington and Fort Fort Collins 00:20:06
as well. So again, looking at upgrading from local to collector on this road. 00:20:14
Next we have an upgrade of Web camera 21 from local to collector. This would be between Hwy. 66 and just South of Canada 34. So 00:20:24
this oddly enough was a section of roadway that was local roadway, but with the classification of roadways surrounding it just 00:20:34
makes a lot more sense having it as a collector roadway. It functions as a collector roadway and just. 00:20:44
Identifying it as such in this location. 00:20:55
Is what we're we're looking at here so. 00:21:00
That runs up the updates that we're looking at this round of functional classification updates. And this is just an image of the 00:21:03
PDF of the updated document that we're looking to adopt through this process. And then next we have just that adoption timeline 00:21:13
and here we are in the second reading. Third reading would be May 13th, 2024 and. 00:21:23
Yeah, that would be all that I have for my presentation, but I'd be happy to answer any questions. Excellent. Thank you. Have any 00:21:33
questions for Evan? 00:21:37
All right, I just want to make a comment. Thanks for all your hard work. Again, thank you for the town hall bringing in the 00:21:43
residents so that we could get their input on this and and get to a better map for what we need right now. So I appreciate that. 00:21:49
And with that, I would entertain a motion. Mr. Mayor, I'm going to be a no vote for today. I received some complaints from some 00:21:54
constituents about maybe a private property takings with the law. 00:22:00
So I'm gonna look into that. Alright, roll call. I need a motion first. 00:22:06
Oh, yeah. Thank you very much. This is a public hearing. Thank you, Mr. James. 00:22:12
If anybody from the public wishes to come forth, express any concerns or comments that they'd like to share with us regarding this 00:22:17
functional classification map and this code ordinance, please come forward to the podium, state your name, your address, and keep 00:22:22
your comments to 3 minutes, please. 00:22:27
Anybody wish to make any comments on this today? 00:22:33
All right, seeing none, I'll go ahead and close public comment. Again, thank you, Mr. James. And with that and I'll now entertain 00:22:37
a motion. 00:22:40
Move to approve second motion from Commissioner Freeman for approval of Code Ordinance 2024, Dash 01 second by Commissioner James. 00:22:45
Further discussion. 00:22:50
Hearing none. Roll call. Vote please. 00:22:56
Mike Freeman, yes. Scott Kane, yes. What are you saying? No payback. Kevin Ross, yes, let the record reflect Code Ordinance 00:22:59
2024-01 passes on second reading 4 to one with commissioner saying being Lenovo. That concludes new business. Thank you, Evan. 00:23:07
Thank you. Brings us to planning item number one, first reading of code Ordinance 2024-04 in the matter of repealing and 00:23:15
reenacting with amendments Chapter 23, zoning of the World County Code. 00:23:22
Accessory dwelling units in R1 revisions. 00:23:31
All right, guys. 00:23:37
Yours. 00:23:39
All right. Good morning, Commissioners, Maximated department planning services. 00:23:42
In front of you today is Ordinance 20/24/04. The purpose of this audience is revised several sections of Chapter 23 of the Well 00:23:46
County Code. Certain changes in minor cleanup items. Other changes bringing out Well County Code and compliance with House Bill 00:23:52
24-1007 which is related to residential occupancy limits in House Bill 24-1152 related to accessory dwelling units and the 00:23:59
proposed changes will assist with streamlining processes and helping further refine what could be considered in urban, rural 00:24:05
transitional zone. 00:24:11
Staff has not received any correspondence from general public or other municipalities following Planning Commission. 00:24:48
The ordinance will do the following changes to the definitions so they remove the definition on zero quarters. These will fall 00:24:56
under accessory dwelling units. Provide the definition of dwelling duplex and dwelling multifamily to allow these dwellings to be 00:25:02
pre manufactured in a factory same as a single family and remove the limit of occupied by one living unit. In other words allowing 00:25:08
these dwellings to be manufactured homes. Revise the definition of doing single family to simply a building containing 1 dwelling 00:25:14
unit. 00:25:20
I'm going to lose the definition of family unit to match House Bill 24-1152. Remove the definitions of family foster care home and 00:25:27
living unit needs with the limit on the number of unrelated residents and a dwelling unit which will be in compliance with House 00:25:33
Bill 24 Dash 01107. 00:25:40
Updates Updates to definition on commercial junkyard to clarify the screening requirement. Updates the definition of screening to 00:25:50
remove this sentence above about pre approval of a screening plan by the planning department prior to installation. Updates to the 00:25:55
definitions will assist being in line with certain house bills and will simplify code and in turn make it easier to understand for 00:26:00
the public and staff. 00:26:06
Next slides breakdown these own districts and the changes happening and each staff is proposing following changes to the 00:26:12
agricultural zone district which is replaced auxiliary quarters and second single family drawings with accessory drawing units AD 00:26:19
use update non commercial junk car provisions which removes requirement for pre approval of screening. 00:26:25
Staffs proposing from chances of state zoning district which is to allow the ability to have one accessory dwelling unit just to 00:26:33
know currently the state zone allows us to recorders, so this will allow essentially a second home as well. 00:26:39
Staff proposing the following changes to the residential zone Districts General cleanup in Section 23-3-100. Allowing one car 00:26:48
container per lot on online properties as long as they're screened. Allowing property owners to store belongings outdoors, not 00:26:53
commercial junk yards on R1 properties as long as they're screened. 00:26:59
Allowing the ability to have one accessory doing it on R1R2R5 properties as long as they're accessory to single family home. 00:27:06
Allowing the ability to apply for use by special review permit for more than the number of in units allowed in section 23-3160H1, 00:27:15
which does not apply to household pets. 00:27:20
Here's just a visual reminder of the aliens are currently allowed in Arlington District. So does code change still allows you to 00:27:26
have two in units per lot, but with the ability to apply for USR? 00:27:31
To have more. 00:27:37
Going back to the R1 residential zone district uses, we wanted to show the breakdown of the current uses, accessory uses and used 00:27:40
by special review uses. 00:27:45
So as you can see this is a current usage and revisions being requested for this. 00:27:50
Here's the current accessory uses and the proposed accessory uses which is the one car container, the building for a non 00:27:56
commercial junkyard and accessory dawn unit. Just comparing the two. 00:28:01
Then here is the existing newspaper special review permit uses and then the addition of the more than allowed animal units. 00:28:08
So as Richard produced in the new term accessory drawing unit, Adu would replace like another quarters and second single family 00:28:18
homes. This new term in use will not require zoning permit or USR, but would be considered use by right with certain standards and 00:28:25
would only require a building permit in the agricultural estate R1R2 and R5 zoom districts. This suggested change in lines with 00:28:31
House Bill 24-1152. And to clarify, House Bill 24 Dash 1152 does not allow the ability to deny Adus and zones that allow single 00:28:37
family dwellings. 00:28:44
But you still must meet certain criteria and standards. 00:28:50
More information regarding it on our web page. More information regarding those notices of the ordinance could be found at the 00:30:04
Legal and Public Notice webpage. And then of course, you can watch these hearings for the ordinances by going to the BOCC web 00:30:08
page. 00:30:12
Again, the purpose of this ordinance is the following reasons, which is revised several sections of Chapter 23 of the World County 00:30:19
Code. Certain changes and minor cleanup bring codes into compliance with House Bill 24-1007 and House Bill 24-1152, help further 00:30:27
refine or define the Urban Rural Transition Zone and assist and streamline certain processes. 00:30:34
Planning Commission recommended that the Board of County Commissioner Commissioners approve Ordinance 2024 of four. In addition to 00:30:44
this recommendation recommendation, staff is recommending a cleanup item to help clarify the septic requirements for an accessory 00:30:50
going unit, which is refining where septic permits allowed to serve a dwelling. A new septic permit may be required for an Adu. 00:30:56
This change has been reflected in the draft ordinance in front of you today. 00:31:02
And again, just this came from a question regarding septics being allowed in the residential zone districts, which staff is not 00:31:09
supportive and supports requiring public water and sewer for 80 use in the residential zone districts. With that, I'm happy to 00:31:15
answer any questions, see if we have any questions for Max. Yes, Mr. Chair. 00:31:21
I just want to double make sure on this because we heard foster home is care home is being taken out. We know foster. 00:31:28
Is occurring in homes, is the group home kind of the definition that falls under now since we're leaving that in? 00:31:37
So essentially, yeah, we're really the definitions because it's becoming less defined and it's just essentially being allowed. 00:31:45
We're we're loosening the new House bill essentially changed the definition to where you didn't need to differentiate the foster 00:31:54
home from a family. So we are essentially amending the code to be in compliance with that House bill. OK, I just want to make sure 00:32:00
that was clear so people didn't hear that and say, Oh my gosh, I'm not selling foster care so. 00:32:06
Thank you. 00:32:13
Any other questions for staff? 00:32:14
All right. At this time, this is a public hearing, so if anybody wishes to have any comments regarding Code Ordinance 2024-04, 00:32:16
again, please come forward to the microphone, state your name, your address, and leave your comments to 3 minutes. But now is the 00:32:22
time to get those comments on the record. 00:32:28
Does anybody wish to make comment? 00:32:35
Good morning. 00:32:44
Bob Walters, Did you want my address, please? 2144 Bluebell Ave. Greeley. 00:32:46
My question about this and I know that for the sake of time they race through. 00:32:53
And read through this stuff. But you had a work session month or so ago and we had, we the public, a few of us were there and we 00:32:59
had a lot of questions about the change. But at that meeting, we weren't allowed to speak. So you had it directed the planning 00:33:06
director to set up like a town hall meeting, a community meeting. And that never happened, even though we called in many times 00:33:14
asking when is the meeting going to be? Where is the meeting going to be? Because we had a lot of questions about this. 00:33:21
Is this going to replace our request to change the zoning in East Greeley to AG to match the land usage? We just had a lot of 00:33:29
questions and we were waiting for that meeting to happen and it and it never happened. Can you can you comment on that? This does 00:33:37
not change the changing of zone that some residents were requesting. 00:33:44
At that town hall meeting that we hosted, this is separate from that because when we do a code ordinance, just as I'm sure you're 00:33:52
aware about, this affects the whole county, right? So you're talking about a very specific area east of Greeley, I believe is, is 00:33:59
what you're referring to with that work session that we hosted these code ordinance changes this week. This changes everything for 00:34:06
everybody across the board from from the county right now what we did. 00:34:13
Say is reach out to planning, have them answer any questions that you have is they're continuing to work through it as they were 00:34:22
getting a gauge of how many people are still wanting to do. 00:34:27
Zone change and things to that nature. This may change some people's minds saying that maybe some of their concerns are addressed 00:34:34
with this code ordinance change. They may not feel like they they need to go forth with that zone change. I can't answer on their 00:34:42
behalf, nor would I ever or ever try to, right. So, but your issue I would say is separate from this. However, this probably has 00:34:50
impacts. It has an impact and, and just listening to my neighbors. 00:34:58
Again, there was just. 00:35:06
There was a lot of questions that I think a town hall meeting or about this topic could have helped out a lot because some people 00:35:08
are neither in limbo like well, we don't know, should we just? 00:35:14
OK, sign off on this and just be good and go on. Or should we proceed with the change of zoning? So you know, we, we really, we 00:35:21
really would have appreciated that meeting that you had requested happen. I think where we're why we haven't done a town hall yet 00:35:27
is because everybody's case is individual and specific and we can't get in those specifics at a town hall with the commissioners 00:35:34
there because ultimately we're the hearing board on that if they come in front of us. And so that's why we've instructed people to 00:35:40
take those individual questions. 00:35:47
To our planning staff so that they can get those questions addressed particularly to their matter. And we don't put any case that 00:35:53
would come in front of the well county commissioners in jeopardy of of not being able to be heard. OK. And I appreciate that and I 00:35:59
think the confusion out there was. 00:36:05
Was well, we'll just wait for the meeting to ask our questions and I think a lot of people may not have come forward to ask those 00:36:11
questions because they were waiting in lieu of the meeting. See what I mean? I have some questions for Bob just real quick and 00:36:17
also just hearing what the chair said I'm I'm a little concerned that I know we have to change via the laws that are being passed 00:36:23
but. 00:36:29
At the same time, that should not be an end run to what the citizens in East Korea want, which my question to you is, I know 00:36:35
you're aware that a change in act and by the way, we have the ability to change everyone who wants to act right now. 00:36:43
As a Florida County Commissioner, since it's in our code, my question to you is, I, I know this won't resolve everything, but do 00:36:52
you think this will resolve most of the issues that your neighbors are having right now with the violations with the planning 00:36:57
department? Well, here's here's what I hear from them. 00:37:03
It may it may help. 00:37:09
With some of that today. 00:37:13
If they just sign off and say OK, we're good with it, we're not gonna, we don't want to move forward with maybe the change of 00:37:16
zoning, what does that do to our property value in the future? 00:37:20
For even if how we want to use it now, we want to add more animals or you know, there's more about this than just animals and 00:37:25
stuff. There's all kinds of farm implement machinery and stuff that are sitting on people's property that they want to keep and 00:37:31
there's just a lot of stuff with it I. 00:37:37
So again, I just think there's a lot of confusion and they don't know which way to go because they don't understand all of. 00:37:43
A fine print of what you just presented. So I just think there's just still a lot of confusion. So sounds like we still need that 00:37:51
town hall that the planning director was directed to have and that still hasn't occurred yet. I think it would be tremendously 00:37:56
helpful. 00:38:01
OK, I'd like to know when that's occurring. 00:38:07
Elizabeth Rafferty answered a question. Please, When did you receive a direction from the rest of the board? 00:39:50
At a work session Restate. Please restate your question. I'm sorry, when did you you decided yourself you received direction for 00:39:55
board not to have the town hall meeting when I did not say that I absolutely did not. 00:40:00
What I stated is that at the last work session, the board said they wanted to proceed with first reading and get feedback based on 00:40:09
that. I don't know that there has been any determination on whether or not you continue to have another meeting. I'm sure that's 00:40:15
not what was on the recording correctly. 00:40:20
It was the direction to have a town housing. 00:40:26
Max, So this this Town Meeting component concept is to elaborate on the changes being proposed today. 00:40:30
I held all those pre op meetings with every applicant that was proposing that changes own and I broke down the changes on process 00:40:39
and the changes to the code being proposed. So and they I give them opportunity one-on-one to ask me questions that they felt they 00:40:46
needed to ask. Now if there's questions or thoughts that came up following that meeting, I cannot. 00:40:54
Control if they want to reach out to me or not regarding that, but I gave everyone who had an opportunity to, you know, that 00:41:02
submitted applications, you know, ask questions about the code change and the change zone process. 00:41:08
So that's I'm kind of confused in terms of the public meeting, I don't know, I don't think we have a problem holding one of those 00:41:15
again to elaborate on what was elaborate on those pre application meetings. 00:41:20
They could call you get those questions answered, addressed for their specific situation. And again I want to elaborate, you 00:42:00
mentioned this earlier, that is just the East Greeley area. This is for all of this is for all zone change, all zones that are in 00:42:05
in this ordinance. 00:42:11
And there are other zone districts that are impacted by this ordinance, but specifically speaking to East Greeley area. 00:42:17
Yes, I've met with them. I spoke with them. And if I was not? 00:42:24
Clear enough to them. I apologize for that. But again, I'm here to help the public so happy to answer any questions. So I did have 00:42:28
my meeting and it was tremendously helpful and I appreciate what they did, the steps they took. The problem here is. 00:42:37
We went in to a pre app meeting for a change of AG. 00:42:46
And then we were told and then then it kind of the topic kind of switched to the R1, the other folks out there who are on the 00:42:51
fence of whether they should throw the preap out to go to AG. 00:42:58
They aren't aware of this. 00:43:06
One change so they wouldn't have, they wouldn't have known to come in. 00:43:09
The reason a lot of people didn't feel that pre app out, the biggest question was because you all said that we were, we could 00:43:16
split the $3000 application fee, but we would all have to individually pay for a survey. The big question is how much is the 00:43:23
survey going to cost? And we haven't been able to figure that out yet. We had a meeting set up with them, then I couldn't make 00:43:30
that meeting. So we haven't been able to figure that out yet. But that's one reason why we're only 50 applications. 00:43:38
I reminded we had 96% of the people in East Greeley initially signed the petition to change the zoning from residential to AG to 00:43:46
match the land usage. That's a lot of people. But then again, a lot of them have not signed that pre application thing because 00:43:53
they're just kind of like, OK, now what do we do? We got this R1 thing. Does that take place? There's just a lot of confusion. So 00:44:01
I think some type of meeting for a group would have helped out tremendously. 00:44:08
I think we need to, I think we'll need to work with staff and figure out how that meeting looks. Obviously because of it's going 00:44:17
to get into specific questions. My understanding would be probably not appropriate for commissioners to be there because we could 00:44:23
invalidate hearings in front of us. But I think that's something we can work with our planning director and her staff on maybe a 00:44:29
work session or whatnot, figure out what that type of meeting looks like. Does that. Would you be willing to to do that, 00:44:35
Elizabeth? 00:44:41
Behind closed doors, that really bothers me. 00:45:18
No, thank you. 00:45:22
Does anybody else wish to make comment today? Yes, ma'am. Come on up. Don't forget to state your name and address for the record, 00:45:25
please. Good morning. Good morning. My name is Colin, 13617 Elmore Rd. 00:45:31
Regarding this zoning, I have a property that was years ago again it was changed over to R1 and in this. 00:45:38
Accessory dwelling unit. I have a septic system but now I'm R1. I have just shy of five acres. 00:45:50
And in here it states that if I'm R1 I must have septic. 00:45:58
And I must have, and then I must have sewer, I must have city water in order to do an accessory dwelling unit. 00:46:03
Umm, the changes in the recommendations that he put up on the board. 00:46:10
It just says where it's permitted to have a septic system, it doesn't change any of the zoning. So at all one, having a larger 00:46:18
property, an accessory dwelling unit would benefit that property, but it has a septic that makes me completely exempt from this. 00:46:27
Change. 00:46:37
And I think it should be looked at. 00:46:38
Is that accurate and how she's interpreting that? Yeah. So currently in the R1 or any residential zone district, you cannot have 00:46:41
an accessory drawing unit, whether that's a second single family home or auxiliary quarters, AKA Adu. 00:46:48
Would this code change is proposing to allow that? But with that being said, you have to have public water and public sewer 00:46:57
because it's all one zone district. They ask from the public is can you look at that for lots that are larger maybe that are zoned 00:47:05
R1 or you know, zoned something other than agricultural or state? 00:47:12
To allow the septic, the ability for septic, that's the ask, right? Yeah. 00:47:20
OK. Thank you for your comments. That's something that we can do. 00:47:27
I mean it's per the code, I would recommend staff would recommend against that because the R1 zone district, the residential zone 00:47:32
districts are urban in nature and that's the point of them. But the issue being that typically the minimum lot size is 6000 square 00:47:40
feet and essentially to get a septic multiple septics on a 6000 square foot lot is is going to be difficult for. 00:47:49
Probably the health department being able to allow. 00:47:59
But there are, but there are exceptions for larger properties like my own that was AG at one time that you guys changed over to 00:48:03
R1. 00:48:07
That was zoned R1 in 1961. Yeah, we didn't change anything except for in 1961. Mr. Freeman's correct with that. I don't know what 00:48:12
you that took place. Mags was again, this is similar to the East Greeley situation where the zoning just didn't exist and then it 00:48:18
was established. OK. 00:48:24
Two parcels and the front parcel was our one. That parcel was egg. 00:48:30
County came in and changed back parcel to R1. 00:48:35
So that makes my 4 1/2 plus acres. 00:48:39
Unavailable for this. 00:48:45
Opportunity, which it is a good opportunity. 00:48:48
I appreciate it. Anything else? No, I'd just like for you to consider it. Thank you. Thank you. 00:48:53
Anybody else have public comment that they wish to make? 00:48:59
All right. With that, we'll go ahead and close public comment. I'll bring Code Ordinance 2024-04 back to the board. 00:49:03
Any discussion, Mr. James? 00:49:15
All right, I got a motion for approval of Code Ordinance 2024-04 from Commissioner James. Is there a second? I'll 2nd I'll second 00:49:51
it, but I would like to have a work session on. 00:49:56
A million with the other all one zone districts have the ability to override things that I think a lot of them built in an all one 00:51:19
zone on purpose because they intentionally wanted to be an all one zone. This will not impact them. I will actually support this 00:51:25
first reading today. 00:51:31
Any other comment? 00:51:38
The only thing I that is that I too would come in planning staff for putting this together with all the legislative changes that 00:51:40
have coming forward through the planning process. I appreciate you guys getting those worked in and adopted into code so that 00:51:47
we're in conformity there. I think you guys have addressed it. I would echo Commissioner Freemans sentiments, understanding how 00:51:54
HOA's operate and still protecting neighborhoods that may not wish to have some of this in. They can still do so. 00:52:01
And with that, I'll go ahead. We'll do roll call. Vote for it, please. 00:52:09
At ctv@weld.gov Or you can always come down in person and chat with us at any time. Does anybody have any public comment today, 00:52:53
Mr. Chair? First I I moved to remove the 15 minute, one minute and arbitrary vote from it. 00:52:59
How many people do we have wanting to talk in public comments? Did you mind raising your hand? 00:53:06
I think we're. 00:53:12
So that no second that dies and with that seeing no one wanting to come forward for public comment, we will go ahead, close public 00:53:14
comment and adjourn. Thank you everybody. Appreciate your time here. 00:53:19
