[ARCHIVED] Town Council Meeting Update - Jan. 21

Town Council Meeting Update

Want to know what happened at the most recent Town Council Meeting? We have you covered! Recaps will be posted on each Wednesday following that week’s Town Council Meeting.


Public Hearings

Chambers Road Widening Project Cost Sharing Agreement
Town Council approved this intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between the Town and Douglas County that establishes the reimbursement amount and maintenance responsibilities for the recently completed Chambers Road widening project (Lincoln Avenue to Mainstreet) adjacent to the Newlin Crossing development. As the road widening project was completed by Douglas County and the annexation agreement is with the Town, an IGA was needed to establish the reimbursement amount and determine maintenance responsibilities. This IGA establishes the reimbursement cost of $1,353,184.89 and also establishes when the reimbursement amount is adjusted annually by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Upon receipt of the reimbursement cost from the developer to the Town, the Town will have 60 days to pay Douglas County. The IGA also addresses the long-term maintenance of the roadway improvements with the Town agreeing to maintain the section of the roadway that has been annexed by the Town.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

Sex Offender Registry Website
The Parker Police Department previously entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement with Douglas County for the use of the SOTAR (Sex Offender Tracking and Registration) software that was developed by Douglas County. Access to this software allows the Parker Police the ability to upload information on all sex offender registrants within the Town of Parker for public viewing and awareness. Use of this program has grown to a statewide level, creating the need for a dedicated employee to manage the SOTAR software for Douglas County and all user agencies. Douglas County is now seeking user fees from participating agencies to assist with personnel costs of this much needed position. User fees are based on agency size and the stated cost for the Parker Police Department will be $2,500 per year.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)


First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for Feb. 3

High Plains Trail Design Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA)
The High Plains Trail (HPT) project is a regional partnership between Douglas County, Arapahoe County, Aurora and Parker (The Partners Group) to design, construct and maintain this future regional trail connection. The current IGA between the Town and Arapahoe County in the amount of $200,000 was approved on Dec. 3, 2018, and addressed initial design and engineering efforts. This cost was evenly shared between Arapahoe County and the Town. This proposed first amendment to the IGA addresses additional funding in the amount of $360,000 to complete all design and engineering documentation up to and including final construction documents. Similar to the original IGA, Arapahoe County and the Town would evenly share this cost with the Town’s portion being $180,000.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

Salisbury Equestrian Park Waterline Easement
A pair of ordinances have been proposed in regards to the dedication of a waterline easement granted to Parker Water and Sanitation District (PWSD) over a Town-owned property, Lot 1, Salisbury Equestrian Park. On May 29, 2019, the Town granted a waterline easement to PWSD over a portion of this property. This easement was requested to cover a new waterline that would increase capacity from PWSD’s regional storage facility within Salisbury to existing water facilities east of the area. This new waterline was approved and installed over the summer. When PWSD conducted as-built surveys documenting the final location of the constructed waterline, it was discovered that a small area of the waterline was installed outside the dedicated easement. If approved, these two ordinances would vacate the existing easement and also approve a new easement to cover the true alignment of the waterline.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

Rezone Request - Dransfeldt Place Planned Development
The applicant, Colorado Steel Systems, is proposing to amend the Dransfeldt Place Planned Development (PD) zoning to permit certain light industrial uses as a use by right. The intent of this PD zoning amendment is to better align the permitted uses with the Parker 2035 Master Plan, which designates this area as part of the Light Industrial Character Area. The current zoning for the subject property was adopted at annexation in 2008 and requires a Use by Special Review approval for all industrial uses. The proposal would improve the zoning by reflecting the light industrial character of the area and better implementing the Master Plan designation for land use.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

Motions, Contracts, Resolutions, Proclamations, Agreements

Motsenbocker Road Shoulder Landscaping Contract
Town Council approved by resolution a single-source contract for the Motsenbocker Road Widening Shoulder Landscaping Project, as allowed by the Town of Parker Charter if it determines that the public interest will be best served by such contracting method. The Overlook at Cherry Creek development has engaged Consolidated Divisions, Inc. (CDI) for its landscaping improvements east of Motsenbocker Road. The Olde Town development has engaged All Phase Landscape for their landscaping improvements on the west side of Motsenbocker Road. Staff recommended that the Town engage the adjacent developers’ landscaping contractors to complete the shoulder landscaping adjacent to the developments so that it is integral to the adjacent development’s landscaping and irrigation. In addition, having the same landscaping contractors responsible for warranty issues will simplify issues in the future.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

Compark Village Filing No. 8 Drainage Easement
Town Council approved a resolution accepting conveyance of a drainage easement over a portion of Tract A, Compark Village Filing No. 8.
