Item #17: NISP 1041 Permit 00:47:46

Resolution 2020-075 Endorsing City Staff's May 13, 2020 Written Comments Regarding the Application of the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District to Larimer County Under Chapter 14 of the Larimer County Land Use Code for a "1041" Permit for the Northern Integrated Supply Project. The purpose of this item is to provide Council with the option to endorse City staff’s May 13, 2020 technical comments (“City Staff 1041 Comments”) that were previously submitted to Larimer County (and provided to Council) on the pending Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP) 1041 application. The 1041 application focuses on NISP infrastructure and recreation. The City Staff 1041 Comments are focused on infrastructure impacts within the Fort Collins Growth Management Area (GMA) including the proposed installation of a diversion structure in the Cache la Poudre (Poudre) River near Mulberry Street and associated pipeline, all on City-owned natural areas. This item also provides Council with the opportunity to evaluate its position on NISP. In the Resolution, four options are presented for Council’s consideration along a spectrum: 1. “Cannot Support This Variant of NISP,” 2. “Cannot Support and Oppose Use of Natural Areas,” 3. “Oppose,” 4. “Oppose and Oppose Use of Natural Areas.”


Item #18: Manufactured Housing Zone District 02:58:39

First Reading of Ordinance No. 100, 2020, Amending the Land Use Code to Establish a Manufactured Housing Zone District. (Option A or B). The purpose of this item is to present Land Use Code (LUC) updates related to the creation of a new zone district for manufactured housing preservation. The staff recommendation includes the following LUC changes: • The establishment of a new Manufactured Housing (M-H) zone district in Article 4. The district includes its own unique set of permitted land uses and standards related to density, setbacks, building height, building size, and parking. • New definitions in Article 5 for ‘manufactured home’ and ‘manufactured housing community’ which will replace existing definitions for the terms ‘mobile home’ and ‘mobile home park.’ • Numerous changes throughout Articles 1-4 which serve to reference or classify the new zone district within the context of other general Code standards and process procedures. Staff is presenting two options for the permitted land uses as part of the new M-H zone district. Option A, first presented to Council at the April 28, 2020, work session, represents a narrower set of permitted land uses while Option B would permit several additional residential land uses which were previously permitted in the City’s former mobile home park districts prior to 1997.


Item #19: Redevelopment of Mobile Home Parks 04:11:59

First Reading of Ordinance No. 101, 2020, Extending the Moratorium on Certain Redevelopment Affecting Existing Mobile Home Parks Until December 30, 2020. The purpose of this item is to extend a moratorium, through December 30, 2020, upon the City’s acceptance of any application for development of any kind that, if granted, could result in the partial or total closing or reduction in capacity of any existing mobile home park, to address the issues and concerns identified in the recitals contained in Ordinance No. 099, 2019.
