AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

To:                     Honorable Mayor and Members of Town Council

 

Through:                     Bill Detweiler, Director, Development Services

 

From:                     Donna Ferguson, Senior Planner, Development Services

 

Title:                     Ordinance Annexing to the Town of Castle Rock, Colorado a 70.010 Acre Property Located in the Northwest Quarter of Section 36, Township 8 South, Range 67 East of the 6th Principal Meridian, Douglas County, Colorado (Ridge Estates Annexation) (Second Reading - Approved on First Reading on June 4, 2019 by a vote of 6-0)

 

Executive Summary

 

On June 4, 2019, Town Council voted 6-0 to recommend approval of the Annexation as presented. There was no public comment on the application.

 

Maple Grove Land, LP, property owner and applicant, has submitted an application for annexation of a 70-acre property known as Ridge Estates, which is located south of Crystal Valley Ranch, east of Bell Mountain Ranch and north of Sellers Creek Ranch.

 

Annexation of Ridge Estates would benefit the Town by providing a net positive financial contribution towards the costs of the Crystal Valley Parkway Interchange construction project while not increasing the overall residential units in the area.

 

It would also benefit the Town by supplying water system infrastructure and services to nearby Town properties and aid the Town, at some time in the future, if the Town determines it would provide water services to nearby County neighborhoods.

Applications for annexations require public hearings before Town Council, after review and recommendation by Planning Commission, who shall review and make a decision upon the proposed annexation. 

 

Budget Impact

 

The proposed annexation will generate review fees. In addition, impact fees will offset Town costs at time of zoning and site development.

 

Findings

 

Planning Commission and Town staff find that the proposed annexation was reviewed and processed as prescribed in Title 20 of the Municipal Code, meets the objectives of the Town’s Vision 2030, and meets the review and approval criteria as outlined in the 2030 Comprehensive Plan. It has additionally been determined that the annexation is otherwise desirable to the Town.

 

Recommendation

 

Planning Commission and staff recommend approval of the proposed Ridge Estates Annexation based on the analysis and findings outlined in this report. 

 

Proposed Motion

 

I move to approve the ordinance as introduced by title, second reading.
