Agritainment - Use Permitted by Right
The property owner of the parcel known as Flat Acres Farm is proposing to annex their land into the Town of Parker with a zoning designation of A-Agricultural. In response, the Town passed this ordinance that amended the Land Development Ordinance (LDO) to add an additional permitted use within the A-Agricultural Zone District. The LDO amendment revises Section 13.04.050 to add “Agritainment” as a permitted use and incorporate a definition of the use.

First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for Feb. 6

Pope Property Annexation
The property owner of a 38-acre enclave parcel that fronts Twenty Mile Road, known as the Pope property, has submitted an Annexation Petition to the Town. The applicant is proposing to divide the property into three sections with different zoning. The western section of the property along Cherry Creek consisting of approximately 9.2 acres would be zoned Open Space and dedicated to the Town. The central section of the property consisting of approximately 17.5 acres would be zoned Agricultural and will allow the applicant to continue those “agritainment” uses currently taking place. The remaining section to the east of the future Dransfeldt Road extension and consisting of approximately 11.9 acres would be zoned Greater Downtown District - Market Center and permit future commercial use. 
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Wilks)

Motions, Contracts, Resolutions, Proclamations, Agreements

Town of Parker Insurance Coverage
Town Council approved a resolution ratifying the purchase and binding of insurance coverage for the Town of Parker for the year 2023. Insurance is a necessary requirement of the Town to cover any expected or unexpected losses. Risk Management identifies exposures and works to mitigate those exposures through risk avoidance, risk transfer and risk acceptance. The Town’s cost of insurance is in line with the size of the organization, its risk exposures and maintaining an excellent loss ratio history with few claims and lawsuits. This is due to excellent loss control practiced in all departments. 
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Wilks)

Contracts Over $100,000
Town Council awarded one contract over the amount of $100,000: 

A contract extension with Nothing But Net - Elite Basketball Coaching through April 2023. The Parks and Recreation Department partners with Nothing But Net - Elite Basketball Coaching to provide youth basketball camps, clinics, academies and small group/one-on-one training throughout the year, which results in varying revenues exceeding $100,000 based on participation. An extension for this contract is being requested while staff works with procurement on a Request for Proposals (RFP) for services.

Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Wilks)
