  1. Public Hearing: Amendment of the Comprehensive Land Use Map, Three H-K/Horton Farms II annexation and initial zoning

Mayor Kipp opened the public hearing at 6:02 p.m. for an amendment to the comprehensive land use map for Three H-K/Horton Farms II annexation and initial zoning. He gave an overview of the process that would take place during the hearing. First a presentation by the applicant, next a presentation by the Town Staff, after those presentations members of the public are invited to speak, then the public hearing will be closed and members of the board may ask questions. Notice was published in the Greeley Tribune March 24, 31, April 7and 17, 2017 Notice was mailed to all property owners within 300 ft. of the location on March 24, 2017 and the property was posted March 24, 2017. Mayor Kipp asked if any board members had any disclosures. Trustee Johns noted he would like to abstain from voting due to his position as the public works director.

 

Applicant: James Pansing Manager of the Three H-K, LLC and Horton Farms II, LLC. An application was filed to the town to amend the comprehensive land use map, annexation and initial zoning. The property is located between I-76 and the rail road right of way.

 

Town Planner: Angela Snyder, Todd Hodges Design, LLC. Angela shared a PowerPoint presentation including a display of the parcels. She pointed out the three main topics for this public hearing were, amendment to the comprehensive land use plan, annexation and initial zoning. The applicant petitioned the town for an annexation in 2 stages for a property comprising of three parcels and portions of Interstate 76 and Interstate 76 Frontage Road right-of-ways. The applicant requested an amendment to the comprehensive land use plan to provide Heavy Industrial zoning/use on the three parcels to be annexed. The comprehensive land use plan currently displays the area as Highway Commercial. After review of the Comp Plan, Municipal Code and referral comments, staff finds that the amendment to the comp. plan map would promote consistency in the land use encouraged south of I-76. The annexation meets all necessary requirements and is in the best interest of the town and the initial zoning request will be compliant with the Town’s comprehensive land use plan with the proposed amendment. Staff recommended the approval of the amendment to the comprehensive land use plan, annexation and initial zoning to Heavy Industrial.
