  • Cherry Creek at KOA Property Drainage and Flood Control Improvements IGA Amendment
    Town Council passed this ordinance adding an amendment to the existing intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between the Town, Mile High Flood District (MHFD) and the Cherry Creek Basin Water Quality Authority (CCBWQA) for the Cherry Creek at KOA Property Drainage Project. The amendment includes additional funding for the complete construction of Reach C of the project, which is located between the McCabe Meadows trailhead and the KOA Tower property. This IGA was originally executed in 2017 to cover design costs and was amended once that same year to provide additional funding towards the construction. This amendment is anticipated to contribute all remaining funding needed for Reach C of the project.
    Approved 4-0 (In Favor: Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

  • Emergency Ordinance - Emergency Meetings
    The Town’s Municipal Code authorizes Town Council to conduct meetings by telephone, electronically or by other means of communication when meeting in person is not prudent due to a health pandemic or other extraordinary emergencies affecting the Town, as is the case with the current COVID-19 pandemic. Town Council passed this emergency ordinance that will extend this authority to the Planning Commission and the Special Licensing Authority.
    Approved 4-0 (In Favor: Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

  • Local Disaster Emergency Declaration
    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town Administrator issued an order on March 13, 2020 declaring a local disaster emergency in and for the Town of Parker, as allowed by the Parker Municipal Code. The effect of declaring a local disaster emergency is to activate the local and interjurisdictional disaster emergency plans and authorize the furnishing of aid and assistance under those plans. Town Council approved this resolution expressing its support and consent to that order. This resolution also provides the support and consent of Town Council to the extension of the order beyond seven days, at the discretion of the Town Administrator.
    Approved 4-0 (In Favor: Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

Ordinances - To Be Continued to April 6

  • Brandy Gulch Drainage and Flood Control Improvements Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA)
    This proposed ordinance would result in the approval of an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between the Town and Mile High Flood District (MHFD) to provide developer funds to MHFD for the required improvements to Brandy Gulch in the Lemon Gulch drainageway system located in the new Looking Glass residential development. The developer will be required to pay to the Town the full cost to construct these improvements in the upcoming subdivision agreements for the Looking Glass development, and this IGA proposes to pass these funds through to MHFD to allow the District to bid and construct the improvements. This arrangement benefits both the Town and MHFD by providing increased control over the project and the selection of the engineer and contractor.
    Approved 4-0 (In Favor: Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)


First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for April 6

  • Prairie Dog Management

    Town Council has been considering policy alternatives to address wildlife management dating to mid-2019. This proposed Parker Municipal Code amendment will provide additional guidance and standards about the management of prairie dogs in connection with applications for development. The ordinance will encourage applicants to relocate prairie dogs and partner with non-profit conservation and public interest groups for their removal. It will require the use of humane means of extermination if relocation is infeasible or prohibited.
    Approved 4-0 (In Favor: Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)
