Good morning commissioners. My name is Sean May. I am the Public Health Services Division Director at the Royal County Department 00:15:55
of Public Health and Environment. I am stepping in this morning for our Executive Director, Jason Cheshire, who is on a well 00:16:02
earned and deserved vacation, so he's asked me to step in. So I will do my best to to to make us all proud here. Once again, thank 00:16:09
you for the recognition of National Nurses Week. We are thankful and appreciate your steadfast support of all nurses. 00:16:16
Thank you for giving us that opportunity to demonstrate our servant hearts and our incredible skill as we serve the residents, 00:16:55
particularly those with the greatest need. 00:17:00
The health department does not serve the population as diverse and numerous as the hospital. As the nurses here that work in the 00:17:05
hospitals and community health centers and doctors offices, these services, the lives that we touch, are just as important. 00:17:11
These services provide the services we provide at the health department are distinctly different, but we are complementary and so 00:17:18
important gaps in healthcare that benefit the overall population of World County. So I'm not a very artistic person, I'm more of a 00:17:23
technical mind. But I thought I'd take a leap and take a chance and I'd like to read a poem written by Jane Shepherd and his 00:17:29
titled A Nurses Poem. 00:17:34
I noticed there's a kind and caring soul who puts the needs of others before their own. A voice for those who cannot speak. A 00:17:40
supporting aid helping you get back on your feet. A gentle reminder of what you can achieve. A hand to grasp, to hold, to help you 00:17:48
to believe. A smile that can brighten even the darkest of days. A light to guide and help you find your way. Reporting for duty 00:17:56
day and night. A compassionate ally while you fight. 00:18:04
And for those who may struggle and think they can't cope, a nurse will be present to give them hope. 00:18:12
Thank you to all nurses, past and present, for sharing your love, compassion and skills with others. Thank you. 00:18:20
Anybody from UC Health wish to speak? 00:18:29
Good morning. My name is Tammy Paconi. I'm the Chief Nursing Officer at UC Health Greeley Hospital. Thank you for inviting us here 00:18:33

forgot to mention Vander when I was up here. My wife works at there. So I hope you're not watching, honey. So. 00:19:45
We'll gloss over that one. 00:19:55
James did work at Banner here. 00:19:58
Nurses, Banner, UC Health, public and otherwise, thank you. Regardless of the organization that you work for. It's the compassion 00:20:05
that you carry in your hearts that makes your career special. Thank you for what you do in the overall care that you provide for 00:20:11
the citizens of World County and for the entire world. Thank you. 00:20:16
Excellent. Nice book. I just want to thank you. That poem just touched me. So I'm going to try to stay strong, but thank you. I 00:20:21

Morning, Commissioners. 00:38:29
Morning nice one. Here Park Plant Services. The purpose of this audience 20/24/08 is submitting section 24-6-20. 00:38:31
A13 of the Rotary code. This section is related standards of rural random vision, more specifically the requirement for lots 00:38:42

Existing accesses are onto accounting, maintaining local road, and D move. Fewer than three lots are proposed. 00:39:19
Staff recommends approval of this ordinance 3/24/08. 00:39:26
Right. With what did you have anything to have you commissioners? You may recall that this came out of one of the RLD cases that 00:39:31
you have recently received and had given staff direction to put forth code changes for you as a result. And so that's what we're 00:39:36
presenting today. 00:39:42
Any questions for staff? 00:39:49
All right, this is a public hearing. At this time, I'll go ahead and open it up to the public. If anybody wishes to make comments 00:39:54
to code Ordinance 20/24/08, now is your opportunity to ask. Please come to the podium, state your name, your address, and keep 00:40:01
your comments to 3 minutes. Does anybody wish to make comment to this code ordinance? 00:40:07
Seeing none, I'll go ahead and close public comment and I will bring it back to the Board for discussion. 00:40:17
Mr. James, thanks for acting on this so fast. Appreciate it. With that Mr. Chair, I move to approve on first reading code 00:40:24
Ordinance 2024, Dash 08 second. 00:40:28
So motion from Commissioner James for approving on first reading code Ordinance 2024, Dash 08. Second by Commissioner Singh 00:40:34
discussion. Mr. Freeman. Yeah, I just want to thank Elizabeth and Max and Bruce for putting together something that just really 00:40:39
goes back and uses some common sense on something that that's out there. And currently it's out in the that's out in the in the 00:40:45
county and it still protects future RLDS and future development to the one axis. So I just want to thank you for your work on 00:40:51
this. 00:40:57
I would echo those comments. I do want to say thank you very much for acting so swiftly on this. I struggle with changing code for 00:41:04
one instance, right. I really do. However, anytime we change code, there's unintended consequences and this I think this case is 00:41:11
probably an unintended consequence. 00:41:19
From previous when we brought the RLD forward. I'm not crazy about these things, but I do think this code ordinance is limited 00:41:27
enough in in structure it's still. 00:41:33
It still maintains the intent of what the RLD is for and the sanctity of it, if you want to say it in that manner or whatnot. So I 00:41:40
do appreciate you on that. So public comments and then I'm, I'm sorry, Yeah, yeah, I opened that up earlier. So with that, is 00:41:47
there any other comments, Mr. Chair, public comments after this? I think that's what he meant. He's not speaking on this issue. 00:41:53
OK. 00:42:00
Well, right now we are in. 00:42:09
#4 Under Planning Ordinance 2024-08, that public comment period has ended and right now we're in discussion with the board. There 00:42:11
is a motion and a second on the floor. 00:42:17
And we are in discussion. Thank you very much, Mr. Chair. I might have to take some extension at swiftly. 00:42:24
Because they're now, they encourage you when asked to do so the first time. We shouldn't make people wait, especially as Mitchell 00:42:31
Freeman said, we are trying to provide a common sense solution for somebody when it's again richly deserves it. He had his entire 00:42:38
neighborhood around him saying we want this and that's the kind of spirit and the spirit of core that we want to have in White 00:42:45
County where colors are incursion our government to serve them the way that they want to be served. 00:42:52
And I was disappointed to find that Planning had not contacted that gentleman until that planning date last week. So I'm personal 00:43:00
to yours. Let's move swiftly the first time so that people can build their American Dream. So with that, thank you for putting 00:43:05
this together. 00:43:10
Any other comment from the board? 00:43:16

Good morning commissioners. My name is Sean May. I am the Public Health Services Division Director at the Royal County Department 00:15:55
of Public Health and Environment. I am stepping in this morning for our Executive Director, Jason Cheshire, who is on a well 00:16:02
earned and deserved vacation, so he's asked me to step in. So I will do my best to to to make us all proud here. Once again, thank 00:16:09
you for the recognition of National Nurses Week. We are thankful and appreciate your steadfast support of all nurses. 00:16:16
Thank you for giving us that opportunity to demonstrate our servant hearts and our incredible skill as we serve the residents, 00:16:55
particularly those with the greatest need. 00:17:00
The health department does not serve the population as diverse and numerous as the hospital. As the nurses here that work in the 00:17:05
hospitals and community health centers and doctors offices, these services, the lives that we touch, are just as important. 00:17:11
These services provide the services we provide at the health department are distinctly different, but we are complementary and so 00:17:18
important gaps in healthcare that benefit the overall population of World County. So I'm not a very artistic person, I'm more of a 00:17:23
technical mind. But I thought I'd take a leap and take a chance and I'd like to read a poem written by Jane Shepherd and his 00:17:29
titled A Nurses Poem. 00:17:34
I noticed there's a kind and caring soul who puts the needs of others before their own. A voice for those who cannot speak. A 00:17:40
supporting aid helping you get back on your feet. A gentle reminder of what you can achieve. A hand to grasp, to hold, to help you 00:17:48
to believe. A smile that can brighten even the darkest of days. A light to guide and help you find your way. Reporting for duty 00:17:56
day and night. A compassionate ally while you fight. 00:18:04
And for those who may struggle and think they can't cope, a nurse will be present to give them hope. 00:18:12
Thank you to all nurses, past and present, for sharing your love, compassion and skills with others. Thank you. 00:18:20
Anybody from UC Health wish to speak? 00:18:29

We'll gloss over that one. 00:19:55
James did work at Banner here. 00:19:58

Right. With what did you have anything to have you commissioners? You may recall that this came out of one of the RLD cases that 00:39:31
you have recently received and had given staff direction to put forth code changes for you as a result. And so that's what we're 00:39:36
presenting today. 00:39:42
Any questions for staff? 00:39:49
All right, this is a public hearing. At this time, I'll go ahead and open it up to the public. If anybody wishes to make comments 00:39:54
to code Ordinance 20/24/08, now is your opportunity to ask. Please come to the podium, state your name, your address, and keep 00:40:01

Mr. James, thanks for acting on this so fast. Appreciate it. With that Mr. Chair, I move to approve on first reading code 00:40:24
Ordinance 2024, Dash 08 second. 00:40:28
So motion from Commissioner James for approving on first reading code Ordinance 2024, Dash 08. Second by Commissioner Singh 00:40:34
discussion. Mr. Freeman. Yeah, I just want to thank Elizabeth and Max and Bruce for putting together something that just really 00:40:39
goes back and uses some common sense on something that that's out there. And currently it's out in the that's out in the in the 00:40:45
county and it still protects future RLDS and future development to the one axis. So I just want to thank you for your work on 00:40:51
this. 00:40:57
I would echo those comments. I do want to say thank you very much for acting so swiftly on this. I struggle with changing code for 00:41:04
one instance, right. I really do. However, anytime we change code, there's unintended consequences and this I think this case is 00:41:11
probably an unintended consequence. 00:41:19
From previous when we brought the RLD forward. I'm not crazy about these things, but I do think this code ordinance is limited 00:41:27
enough in in structure it's still. 00:41:33
It still maintains the intent of what the RLD is for and the sanctity of it, if you want to say it in that manner or whatnot. So I 00:41:40
do appreciate you on that. So public comments and then I'm, I'm sorry, Yeah, yeah, I opened that up earlier. So with that, is 00:41:47
there any other comments, Mr. Chair, public comments after this? I think that's what he meant. He's not speaking on this issue. 00:41:53
OK. 00:42:00

And we are in discussion. Thank you very much, Mr. Chair. I might have to take some extension at swiftly. 00:42:24
Because they're now, they encourage you when asked to do so the first time. We shouldn't make people wait, especially as Mitchell 00:42:31
Freeman said, we are trying to provide a common sense solution for somebody when it's again richly deserves it. He had his entire 00:42:38
neighborhood around him saying we want this and that's the kind of spirit and the spirit of core that we want to have in White 00:42:45
County where colors are incursion our government to serve them the way that they want to be served. 00:42:52
And I was disappointed to find that Planning had not contacted that gentleman until that planning date last week. So I'm personal 00:43:00
to yours. Let's move swiftly the first time so that people can build their American Dream. So with that, thank you for putting 00:43:05
