[ARCHIVED] Town Council Meeting Update - July 20

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.



  • Tri-County Health Department Mandatory Mask Order Opt-Out

    Town Council passed a resolution that allows the Town of Parker to “opt-out” of the Tri-County Health Department’s (TCHD) recent order requiring mandatory mask wearing for all residents of Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas Counties, within the boundaries of the TCHD. Reasons for Town Council electing to opt out of the TCHD order include: (1) the public health data for Douglas County is favorable; (2) the Douglas County community is voluntarily wearing masks at a current compliance rate of 75%; and (3) the recommendation from the Executive Director of TCHD that a mask mandate is not necessary for Douglas County. While having opted out of the TCHD order, the Town of Parker will still be subject to Governor Jared Polis’ mandatory mask order that applies to the entire state of Colorado.
    Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Ordinances - Continued to Aug. 3

  • Olde Towne at Parker Planned Development Guide Amendment

    The subject property is an undeveloped 12.2-acre tract located south of Mainstreet between Motsenbocker Road to the east and Jordan Road to the west. The current property owner, Senderos Creek Condos, LLC, proposes to amend the Olde Town at Parker Planned Development (PD) Guide and Plan to incorporate this undeveloped tract into the PD. It would be zoned for residential use and is proposed to be developed with condominiums and townhomes. If approved, the proposal would constitute the last residential section of the former Olde Town at Parker PD that went bankrupt during the Great Recession of 2007-2008 and which the property owner has been working to complete.

    The Planning Commission held a public hearing on June 25, 2020 regarding the proposal to amend the Olde Town at Parker PD zoning and associated Sketch/Preliminary Plans. At the public hearing, several members of the public who were viewing the meeting through the Town’s Facebook live video stream did not access the Zoom virtual meeting platform in time to provide public comment prior to the closing of the public hearing. To address this situation, Town Council has requested a remand of the proposal back to Planning Commission in order to provide these members of the public who were not able to access the Zoom virtual meeting platform an opportunity to be heard by the Commission. The Planning Commission will reopen the public hearing on July 23, and the continued public hearing before Town Council will be held Aug. 3.
    Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)


  • Cottonwood Subdivision Well Site Easement Agreement

    Town Council approved a well site easement dedication over a portion of Tract C, Cottonwood Subdivision Filing No. 8 to Cottonwood Water and Sanitation District. This easement, which includes Town-owned property, will allow CWSC legal access to its well site.
    Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

  • 2020 Election Intergovernmental Agreement
    The Town of Parker’s 2020 regular election will be conducted as a coordinated election with Douglas County. The Town and Douglas County are required to enter into an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) to govern the conduct of the election.
    Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)


First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for Aug. 3

  • CARES Act Intergovernmental Agreement
    On March 27, Congress adopted the CARES Act, which established a $150-billion Coronavirus Relief Fund, a portion of which was allocated to the state of Colorado. Governor Jared Polis issued an executive order allocating $270 million for local governments that did not receive a direct distribution of funds under the CARES Act, including Douglas County, Parker, Lone Tree, Castle Pines, Castle Rock and Larkspur. The purpose of this intergovernmental agreement is to establish the structure for reimbursement of the eligible expenses incurred by the governmental parties in compliance with the CARES Act.
    Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Motions, Contracts, Resolutions, Proclamations, Agreements

  • Contracts Over $100,000
    One contract over the amount of $100,000 was awarded by Town Council:
    1. A contract with TAT Construction, LLC, in the amount of $161,405 for the Jordan Road Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon project. A long segment of Jordan Road between Cottonwood Drive and Sandreed Circle has several unsignalized crosswalks. Town staff has received a number of complaints regarding the safety of pedestrians crossing Jordan Road in this area due to the high vehicular volumes and speeds. Following a study that was conducted at a location on Jordan Road where the majority of the pedestrian crossings occurred, it was determined that the location meets Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Safety Program requirements for the installation of a pedestrian hybrid beacon (PHB).
    Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)
