Anthology North Sketch and Preliminary Plan Partial Waiver
The property owner of the Anthology North development, North Parker Investments, L.L.C., and their development partner requested in 2019 that the Town allow them to segment (phase) the development because of its large size, major infrastructure requirements and need to address housing market conditions. In response, the Town Council approved Resolution No. 19-023 (the “Partial Waiver Resolution”) to allow segmentation of the development of the PD into three phases. During the May 3 meeting, Town Council approved a new resolution amend the Partial Waiver Resolution to allow the property owner and their development partner to further sequence the initial phase into Segments 1A, 1B and 1C. It also incorporates several minor amendments related to the Parks Master Plan and dedication of school sites that are limited in nature. This request does not change the planned development in any way other than allowing the property owner and their development partner to sequence Segment One into three manageable subareas. They will be required by the Land Development Ordinance and Partial Waiver Resolution to obtain Town Council approval for Segments 1A, 1B and 1C as well as future Segments Two and Three at a public hearing.

First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for May17

Lincoln Professional Park - Annexation and Zoning
Two ordinances have been proposed that related to the annexation and zoning of the Lincoln Professional Park property located in unincorporated Douglas County at the southeast corner of the intersection of Lincoln Road and Dransfeldt Road. This property is approximately 4.4 acres in size and is undeveloped except for several dilapidated agricultural buildings. The adjacent properties and surrounding area are located inside the Town of Parker’s boundary. The proposed zoning is C-Commercial, which would permit future commercial development that includes retail, service and restaurant uses.
Approved 4-0 (In Favor: Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage)

Regional Hazardous Materials Board Termination 
In 2003, Town Council approved an ordinance adopting the Arapahoe/Douglas Counties Regional Hazardous Materials Board Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA). Currently, there is not a need for a board or the joint efforts that were necessary at the time of the 2003 IGA. Therefore, the jurisdictions that were party to the board have determined to terminate the board and agreement. If passed, this ordinance would enter the Town of Parker into a new agreement that terminates the prior IGA and board.
Approved 4-0 (In Favor: Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage)
