@@Commissioner Ferdinandsen moved that the following Resolution be adopted:
BEFORE THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
OF THE COUNTY OF JEFFERSON
STATE OF COLORADO
Case No. Z91-36 Map No. 182
Applicant: STEVEN D. VAN SKIVER and NANCY L. VAN SKIVER
Location: 11625 South U.S. Highway 285, Conifer
Section 27, Township 6 South, Range 71 West
From: Planned-Development (P-D) Zone District
To: Planned-Development, amended (P-D, as amended) Zone District
Purpose: To amend existing Official Development Plan to allow light industrial and office warehouse uses
Approximate Area:4.77 acres
WHEREAS, Steven D. Van Skiver and Nancy L. Van Skiver did file an application with the Planning Department of Jefferson County on or about September 12, 1991, to rezone the herein described property in Jefferson County to amend the Planned-Development (P-D) Zone District; and
WHEREAS, a public hearing was held by the Jefferson County Planning Commission on February 5, 1992, at which time the Planning Commission did, by formal resolution, recommend approval of the subject rezoning application; and
WHEREAS, after notice as provided by law, a public hearing was held by this Board on February 25, 1992, at which time this matter was continued until March 10, 1992, for decision; and
WHEREAS, based on the evidence, testimony, exhibits, study of the Comprehensive Plan, recommendations of the Jefferson County Planning Commission, comments of the Jefferson County Planning Department, comments of public officials and agencies, and comments from all interested parties, this Board finds as follows:
1.That proper posting, publication and public notice was provided as required by law for the hearings before the Planning Commission and the Board of County Commissioners of Jefferson County.
2.That the hearings before the Planning Commission and the Board of County Commissioners were extensive and complete, that all pertinent facts, matters and issues were submitted and that all interested parties were heard at those hearings.
3.That the proposal is in substantial conformance with the criteria of most major issue areas of the Conifer/285 Corridor Area Community Plan component of the Jefferson County Comprehensive Plan. Although the Plan recommends residential uses for this area, the Plan allows industrial activities when impacts associated with these uses can be mitigated. This industrial proposal substantially complies with the policies in the Plan for placement of industrial uses outside activity centers. This site is bounded by two roads. It is situated near commercial zoning (the existing Green Valley Auto Body and the Green Mountain Quarry). Visual corridors are preserved along the roadway because the developed portion of the site containing the building and storage canopy will only briefly be visible from the new Highway 285. Due to the large rock outcroppings and building placement, parking areas will be screened from (new) Highway 285. In addition the proposed vegetation in the landscape plan and the existing vegetation will help to visually screen the building and storage yard.
4.That the proposed land use is compatible with allowable land uses in the surrounding area in all directions. There is considerable tree cover existing on the site and several large outcroppings. Much of the site is not visible from Highway 285 because of topography, rock outcroppings and vegetation. This site is almost totally surrounded by Highway285 and old Highway 285. The site is just east of the County's Green Valley quarry which is zoned commercial-one and west of an auto body business. The manufacturing and processing uses will be restricted to the interior of the buildings.
5.That the proposed land use is compatible with existing land uses in the surrounding area in all directions for the reasons set forth above.
6.That the subject property will be served by individual well and septic system. The subject property will also be served by Elk Creek Fire Protections District.
7.That no known commercial mineral deposits exist upon the subject property.
8.That for the above stated reasons, the applied for rezoning is in the best interest of the health, safety, morals, convenience, order, prosperity and welfare of the citizens of Jefferson County.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that Rezoning Application Case No. Z91-36 to amend Jefferson County Zoning Map No. 182 to amend the Planned-Development (P-D) Zone District upon the following described unincorporated area of Jefferson County, be and hereby is APPROVED, subject to the filing of the amended Official Development Plan with the revisions to the Official Development Plan written restrictions set forth on the red-marked print dated February 19, 1992, which is on file in the Planning Department, including the deletions of items J.1.e. and f. on the Red-Marked Print:

Commissioner Rich Ferdinandsen AYE
Commissioner John P. Stone AYE

Dated: March 10, 1992
