[ARCHIVED] Town Council Meeting Update - Feb. 22

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 the day after every Town Council Meeting.


Public Hearings - Items Continued to March 7

Chambers Highpoint and Compark 
The applicant, Compark 190, LLC, has proposed a Minor Development Plat (MDP) and Subdivision Agreement for Chambers Highpoint Filing No. 1 and a First Amendment to the Compark Village South Filing No. 1 Subdivision Improvement Agreement (SIA). Compark 190 is the owner of an undeveloped, 44.35 acre property located within the Chambers Highpoint Planned Development (PD), located at the southwestern corner of the intersection of E-470 and Chambers Road. The proposed MDP would create three lots and six tracts to support the required infrastructure and initial superblock lots consistent with the PD zoning. Proposed Lot 1 is 11.22 acres and is located within Planning Area A for multi-family residential use. Proposed Lot 2 is 3.62 acres and is located within Planning Area B for office/light industrial use. Proposed Lot 3 is 9.73 acres and is located within Planning Area C for highway commercial use. The applicant would require an SIA to secure the public improvements associated with the proposed MDP. In addition, the property owner of the adjacent Compark Village South PD would require an amendment to the Compark Village South Filing No. 1 SIA to formalize the shared obligations between the two developments. This results from the Annexation Agreements for the two properties having several shared obligations for infrastructure that require coordination and reimbursement.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)


Contracting Procedures for Public Works Projects
Town Council passed an ordinance amending the section of the Parker Municipal Code (11.13) relating to Contracting Procedures for Capital Improvement Projects. Revisions to this section of the Code: 1.) improve the contract content review timeline, as it will allow the Public Works Director to designate an alternate person in the case that the Public Works Director is unavailable to review in a timely manner; and 2.) provide additional “checks/balances” if Town Council chooses to waive certain requirements for bidding and competitive proposals for an expenditure of more than $100,000.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Family Child-Care Homes
In 2021, the Colorado State Legislature approved a bill that family child care homes are to be classified as residences for purposes of licensure and local regulations, including zoning and land use development. Town Council passed this ordinance that defines family child care homes, amends the Parker Municipal Code to allow family child care homes in all zone districts and requires a conditional use approval for a large family child care home proposing to locate adjacent to an existing large family child care home. The changes comply with the new State law.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

School Resource Officers - Sharing Costs Agreement
The Town of Parker has been providing the Douglas County School District (DCSD) with both School Resource Officers (SROs) and School Marshal Officers (SMOs) for Parker high schools, middle schools and elementary schools. The Town and DCSD previously entered into two separate intergovernmental agreements (IGAs), one for the SROs assigned to the high school and middle schools, and another for the SMOs assigned to the various elementary schools and certain covered charter schools. The most recent contract for the SROs was set to have certain terms extended and amended for the 2021-2022 school year. Based on those updates, the Town and DCSD entered into discussions for merging both IGAs into one agreement and updating that agreement to be more consistent with the agreements between DCSD and other law enforcement agencies within the District. Town Council passed an ordinance approving this IGA for the 2021-2022 school year and the 2022-2023 school year.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Scholarship Grant Agreements
Town Council passed an ordinance approving an agreement with Douglas County regarding Developmental Disabilities Milly Levy Grant Program funding that will be used for Therapeutic Recreation Scholarships and Adaptive Water Safety/Swim Scholarships. In December 2021, 40 applicants throughout the county were awarded grants. The Town received two separate awards, one for Adaptive Water Safety/Swim scholarships in the amount of $11,200 that enhance personal life-saving water skills, and the other for Therapeutic Recreation scholarships to families, individuals and groups with developmental disabilities to participate in recreation activities in the amount of $14,400. These funds will be utilized in 2022.
Two Agreements, Both Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)


Land Dedication Agreement with Shea Homes
Town Council approved an agreement with Shea Homes accepting a 20.25-acre land dedication located at the southeast corner of Mainstreet and Chambers Road. This parcel will be used for open space and trail purposes. In addition to the land dedication, Shea will also reimburse the Town for constructing the existing sidewalk on the east side of South Chambers Road that runs the length of the property. The funds will be used to build a trail on the property. 
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

O’Brien Park Playground Equipment
Town Council approved a contract with Landscape Structures, Inc., in the amount of $338,900.97 for improvements to the playground equipment in O’Brien Park. Improvements to this playground were originally budgeted in 2019. A community input process was completed and a preferred concept for the reimagined playground was selected. The project was then put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds for the project are now included in the 2022 budget and staff is moving the project forward to construction. Due to potential supply chain issues and shipping times, staff recommends purchasing the playground equipment in advance of the construction contract award utilizing a cooperative purchasing alliance to make sure the playground equipment is available when needed for installation.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Cottonwood Highlands Filing No. 7 Subdivision Improvement Agreement First Amendment
Town Council approved an amendment to the Subdivision Improvement Agreement for Cottonwood Highlands Filing No. 7 (located at the southwest corner of Jordan Road and Cottonwood Drive) that allows for probationary acceptance of the public improvements while awaiting delivery of traffic signal poles that have been delayed due to supply chain issues. The last remaining public improvement for the agreement is a traffic signal at the intersection of Jordan Road and Cottonwood Drive
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)
