Public Hearings

The Schoolhouse Plaza and Parking Lot
Town Council approved a site plan amendment for the final phase of the renovation of the historic Parker Consolidated School, now known as The Schoolhouse, located in downtown Parker. This final phase will create an outdoor plaza between Ruth Memorial Chapel and The Schoolhouse, as well as the renovation of the existing surface parking lot accessible from Pikes Peak Avenue.

SungateKids is a Colorado-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit children advocacy agency serving the 18th Judicial District, which includes Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln Counties. Town Council approved via ordinance a memorandum of understanding to establish the conditions under which individuals, agencies and jurisdictions in the 18th Judicial District may utilize the resources of SungateKids during the investigation of allegations of child abuse and/or neglect. The previous memorandum of understanding with the agency needed to be replaced.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)


First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for March 4

E-470 Maintenance Responsibilities Intergovernmental Agreement
Town and E-470 staff recently entered into discussions identifying the need for a comprehensive maintenance agreement due to numerous issues/items that require clarification on which agency owns maintenance responsibility. Verbal agreements have been in place for numerous years on some of the maintenance responsibilities that need to be codified. Through a collaborative exchange between E-470 staff and Town staff, a comprehensive maintenance listing was agreed to in 2018. This maintenance listing includes references to previous Town/E-470 intergovernmental agreements but also addresses storm drainage, roadway, bridges, lighting, signage, landscaping and snow/ice control. It is anticipated that this IGA will have to be amended from time-to-time in the future as additional development occurs.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Motions, Contracts, Resolutions, Proclamations, Agreements

Cottonwood Highlands Annexation Agreement Fourth Amendment
The Cottonwood Highlands property is located north of E-470, generally between Jordan Road and Chambers Road. The property was annexed into the Town in 2003 and is zoned for a mix of residential and commercial uses. The property is subject to an annexation agreement with the Town that codifies, among other items, the property owner’s obligations to construct roadways and roadway improvements in and adjacent to the property. One of the property owner’s roadway obligations is to improve Cottonwood Drive east of Jordan Road to Apache Plume Drive as a full four-lane arterial roadway. Town Engineering staff has proposed to construct the Developer segment at the same time as a Town-planned improvement project between Apache Plume Drive and Cottonwood Way. The Town would then be reimbursed by the developer. An amendment to the annexation is required to allow for this scenario.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Special Licensing Authority Meeting Time Change
Town Council approved by resolution an amendment to the Special Licensing Authority’s bylaws that result in a change of the Authority’s monthly meeting time from 7 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Meetings will still be scheduled for the third Thursday of each month.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)
