[ARCHIVED] Town Council Meeting Update - July 18

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

Parker Mainstreet Studio Subdivision Minor Development Plat
Town Council approved a Minor Development Plat (MDP) to create one commercial lot on an unplatted property located at the southeast corner of Mainstreet and Pikes Peak Drive in Downtown Parker. It contains an old commercial building originally developed for an auto repair garage that has been reused by other local businesses during the past 10 years. The subject property is currently occupied by two local businesses, the Studio@Mainstreet and Music@Mainstreet. It was unplatted because all improvements on the site pre-date the Town’s incorporation in 1981, and there have been no major building alterations or site improvements over the past 40 years. The approved MDP application, known as the Parker Mainstreet Studio Subdivision, will create one legal lot of record that is approximately one-half (.52) acre in total area. Other than the MDP, the property owner is not proposing any development, improvements or alterations to the property at this time.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Poage, Rivero)

Open Space, Trails and Greenways Master Plan Update Adoption
Town Council passed a resolution adopting minor map and text updates to the Town’s existing Open Space, Trails and Greenways Master Plan that focus on updating the missing trails connections list and map. This Plan is a collaborative overview of future open space and trails in our community that was developed by the Planning Commission, Town Council, staff and citizens that use and benefit from open space and trails. The Plan was first adopted in 2004 and last updated in 2010.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Poage, Rivero)

Public Hearings - Continued to Sept. 6

Use by Special Review Application - Clarke Farms Gas Station
A public hearing scheduled for a Use by Special Review (UbSR) application to allow a gas service station with a commercial building at the southeast corner of Twenty Mile Road and Pony Express Drive in the Clarke Farms Planned Development (PD) was continued to the Sept. 6, 2022 Town Council Meeting.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Poage, Rivero)


Use by Special Review Extension - Parker Homestead Gas Station
Town Council approved via resolution a request by applicant Mitrah Investments and Holding L.L.C. for an extension of its Use by Special Review (UbSR) approval for a gas service station in the Parker Homestead Planned Development to Dec. 31, 2022. The requested extension of approval required a partial waiver of Section 13.01.140(b) of the Land Development Ordinance (LDO). The subject property is located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Chambers Road and Double Angel Road. After Town Council approved the UbSR, the applicant submitted a replat application to subdivide the property into lots and a site plan application illustrating the design of the gas service station and convenience store. Each application is under review for compliance with the Town’s development standards, but the applicant has indicated they need additional time to respond to review comments and demonstrate compliance with applicable standards. The extension preserves the applicant’s approval while they complete the development review process for the replat and site plan applications.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Poage, Rivero)


First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for Aug. 1

Nov. 8, 2022 Coordinated Election - Intergovernmental Agreement
The Town’s regular election on Nov. 8, 2022 will be conducted as a coordinated election with Douglas County. The Town and Douglas County are required to enter into an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) to govern the conduct of the election.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage)

Town Administrator Title Change - Town Manager
This proposed ordinance would amend the Parker Municipal Code to change the terminology of “Town Administrator” to “Town Manager.” The ordinance would authorize an alternative title for the same chief administrative officer position established by the Town Charter and does not alter the powers, duties, qualifications, terms or tenure of any municipal office established by the Charter.
Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage)

The 2021 contract, which was publicly advertised, competitively bid and awarded to Kolbe Striping, included the option for two contract renewals, which the Town could exercise. Maintaining the Town’s pavement markings will ensure the traveling public can safely navigate our roadways, since the paint fades over time.
