The setback requirements are 50 feet in the front, 30 on the sides, and 50 in the rear. Fences over 7 feet in height are considered structures and must meet the setback requirements for structures. Please revise the fence location to meet the setback. 4/7/2020 8:17:06 AM

If the request is approved, staff anticipates a condition of approval regarding the paint color of the fence.

Staff also anticipates conditions of approval precluding vehicles from being stacked on one another as well as specifically excluding any activities similar to a junk yard.

1. Foreign Trade Zone Blvd right-of-way is within the City of Colorado Springs limits and the roadway is missing the top mat of asphalt and the bottom mat is in very poor condition. Therefore, this development is required to remove the existing asphalt and fully reconstruct the asphalt in Foreign Trade Zone Blvd adjacent to this development. Add a note to the Plot Plan drawing that states Foreign Trade Zone Blvd will be reconstructed to meet City of Colorado Springs standards.

2. Any damaged C&G adjacent to the proposed development will be removed and replaced.

3. The development will also require the installation of 5’ detached or 6’ attached sidewalk along Foreign Trade Zone Blvd adjacent to the development. The 5’ detached sidewalk will require at least a 7’ tree lawn area. Show and callout the required sidewalk on the Plot Plan drawing.

4. Drennan Road right-of-way is also with the City of Colorado Springs limits

5. Clearly identify where the City of Colorado Springs limits are located.

6. Add a note to the Plot Plan that states all the public improvements and construction plans along Foreign Trade Zone Blvd and Drennan Road will be reviewed, approved and inspected by the City of Colorado Springs Engineering Development Review Division.

7. All public improvements will be completed prior to the issuance of the Certificate of Occupancy.

Hey Nina,

I have finished with my review for the subject application. CSU has no action items at this time and approval is recommended. Let me know if you need anything else from me.

Thanks,

1. The property is not within a fire district. The applicant should consider annexation into a fire district or a formalized agreement for a fire district to serve this property in the event of an emergency. Fire protection provisions are tied to the following review criteria: The impact of the special use does not overburden or exceed the capacity of public facilities and services, or, in the alternative, the special use application demonstrates that it will provide adequate public facilities in a timely and efficient manner. Should fire protection not be provided, staff would nee to point out this deficiency in the staff report and at public hearing. If you have already established a mutual aid agreement, please provide a copy.

2. Please identify how water and sanitation will be provided. If by centralized service, please provide a will-serve letter.

3. Based upon the proposed use, there may be impacts to the County roadway system. Please provide a haul route. A traffic study will also further inform those impacts and will assist in determining that impacts are/can be mitigated properly. The resubmission request will be updated.

4. Should the request be approved, a site development plan will also be required.

5. You have filled out the incorrect application. As discussed at the EA meeting, this application will be elevated to a public hearing. Please fill out the type D application and resubmit.

6. The vicinity map does not show a major intersection in relation to the subject parcel. Please zoom out a bit to show a broader extent.

7. Staff highly recommends hosting a neighborhood meeting with those within the vicinity to let them know what is being proposed. Staff feels as though this will be advantageous to the applicant so that they may discover what concerns those in the area may have prior to the item being scheduled for a hearing. Staff recommends that you notify all those in the area, as the adjacent property owners are not residential and may not have the same concerns.

8. You have not provided a mineral right certification. Please view the mineral rights certification found in the special use packet, fill out, notarize, and resubmit.

9. The grayed version of the photo simulations provide a distorted view. Please provide versions without the shading. Photo #4 does not seem to show the full extent of the property but only the closest boundary.

10. The special use map checklist identifies the minimum amount of information that is to be provided. You have not included the boundary description of the subject parcel. Please add. There is a dashed line going through the property but it has not been identified what that dashed line represents.

11. Be aware that a fence over 7' in height is considered a structure that must meet all setback requirements and obtain a building permit.

12. Please provide a better graphic of what the fence will look like. A photograph of an example along with the fence detail may help staff determine if the fencing will be compatible with the surrounding area.

13. Your landscaping plan shows that you will be providing less landscaping than what is required. Section 6.2.2 allows the PCD Director to approve an alternative landscape plan. The PCD Director will not be supportive of an alterative landscaping plan that decreases the amount of landscaping required. As discussed at the EA, mitigation and screening will be a critical component in the review of this proposal. As discussed in the EA, staff recommends that the applicant provide more screening than what the LDC requires in Chapter 6 for permitted uses. Staff does not feel as though the proposed screening adequately addresses the potential visual/glare impacts from the large 80 acre storage area on surrounding properties due to there being a gentle slope to the parcel.

General comment: staff appreciates you submitting a survey with all encumbrances identified in the title commitment as an additional document.
