SPUR MOUNTAIN TIMBER ANNEXATION

Items discussed were:  water/wastewater; land dedication; and access to Arapahoe County Road 38.  Kevan Northup from Spur Mountain Timber stated it would cost $17,000-$40,000 to bore under the railroad track for a wastewater line to serve the development and asked if the Board would allow him to install a septic tank instead.  Also because of the boring costs, Northup asked the Board to allow him to apply for a well permit instead of hooking onto Town water.  Northup agreed to meter and pay for the water once the well is working.

 

TRUSTEE LAVOIE MOVED, TRUSTEE FIELDS SECONDED to allow Spur Mountain Timber to install a septic system and apply to the state for a permit to dig a well, and in case of denial of the well permit, the Town guaranteeing water as far as the meter pit on the west side of Highway 40 near Elm Street, then waiving the $3,500 system development charge (tap fee) because of the projected and estimated benefit to the Town of the proposed development, if the development occurs before April 1, 2009.  Voting was as follows:

                YES:                        Lavoie, Sanger, Stoumbaugh, Venter, Wood, Fields

                NO:                         None

                ABSTAIN:            None

                ABSENT:               Johnson

The Mayor Pro Tem declared the motion carried.

 

The two percent land dedication, approximately 1 ˝ acres, to the Town to be used for public purposes (or cash in lieu) was discussed.  The acreage will be determined by taking two percent of the sum of the 13 acres to be annexed for Spur Mountain Timber  plus the 64 acres to be annexed in the Turecek West Annexation.  Trustee Lavoie suggested the land dedication be used as a location for a helipad for emergency purposes.

 

TRUSTEE LAVOIE MOVED, TRUSTEE STOUMBAUGH SECONDED to take a five-minute break at 7:24 p.m. so Mayor Pro Tem Stoumbaugh could contact Vic Behrens of the Rescue Squad to discuss the helipad.  The motion carried.

 

The regular meeting reconvened at 7:31 p.m.

 

Mayor Pro Tem Stoumbaugh reported that Behrens was receptive to the idea of locating the helipad on the property as long as easy access was available and the area was free of overhead electrical wires.  The possibility of a train stopped on the tracks blocking access to the helipad was also discussed.

 

TRUSTEE WOOD MOVED, TRUSTEE SECONDED to temporarily approve acceptance of two percent land dedication of Spur Mountain Timber’s annexed property to be used for a helipad.  Voting was as follows:

                YES:                        Sanger, Stoumbaugh, Venter, Wood, Fields, Lavoie
