CONSENT AGENDA

First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for Oct. 7


E-470 Right-of-Way Northeast Annexation and Zoning
Town Council will consider two ordinances related to the annexation and zoning of a portion of the E-470 right-of-way located adjacent to the northeastern section of the Town of Parker in unincorporated Douglas County. The Town, acting on behalf of the E-470 Public Highway Authority (the “Authority”), proposes an annexation of this right-of-way in order to ensure that the entirety of E-470 within the Town’s Planning Area is annexed into the community. The proposed zoning of this property is the E-470 Area Planned Development (PD), the same zoning for the rest of E-470 within the Town limits.
Approved 4-1 (In Favor: Lewis, Rivero, Toborg, Williams; Opposed: Poage)

Special Districts Annual Report Requirements and Application Fees
This proposed ordinance would amend the section of the Parker Municipal Code concerning special districts to update the annual report requirements and application fees. The fee increase would capture the actual costs for staff and outside counsel review time. Most service plan amendments are actually amended and restated service plans, requiring nearly as much review time as original service plans. Additionally, the ordinance now treats multiple districts that are submitting separate service plans or amendments, which are substantially similar, to pay one fee, rather than separate fees for each plan or amendment.
Approved 4-1 (In Favor: Lewis, Rivero, Toborg, Williams; Opposed: Poage)


Kratom Sale Prohibition
Town Council will consider an ordinance that would prohibit the sale of Kratom for human consumption in the Town of Parker. Kratom is an herbal substance featuring active ingredients that have effects similar to an amphetamine or opioids. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers not to use kratom and the Tri-County Health Department has recommended that the Town ban the sale of kratom.
Approved 4-1 (In Favor: Lewis, Rivero, Toborg, Williams; Opposed: Poage)

Compark Village Drainage Easements
Town Council approved five separate resolutions accepting the conveyance of drainage easements in Compark Village Filings 4 and 8. Since the proposed drainage infrastructure spans multiple property lines, five separate agreements were required.
Approved 4-1 (In Favor: Lewis, Rivero, Toborg, Williams; Opposed: Poage)


Anthology West Metro District Nos. 5 and 6 Capital Fee Pledge Agreement

Approved 4-1 (In Favor: Lewis, Rivero, Toborg, Williams; Opposed: Poage)


Anthology West Metro District Nos. 2 Through 6 Mill Levy Equalization and Pledge Agreement First Amendment
