Comments provided by Elizabeth Nijkamp, 719-520-7852

The proposed site changes to the two lots combined (and two phases) appears to exceed an acre. Water Quality and/or low impact development should be addressed. if the area to the south (for both lots) is to be used as a grass buffer, it should be placed in a tract for a permanent WQ buffer strip so that it can not be constructed upon without addressing WQ.

The proposed WQ design for the two lots should not adversely impact the adjacent residential lots to the south. The change in the site should not change the manner for quantity of flow to the adjacent lots.

Comments provided by DPW:

1. Voyager Parkway is owned and maintained by City and portions between Briargate Parkway and Old Ranch Road are located in unincorporated EPC and should be all encompassing annexed into the City.
2. That with this annexation, the remaining portion of Old Ranch Road will be approximately 1900’ from approximately Kettle Creek Road to the east and should be conveyed/annexed from County to City to provide for well-planned and orderly provisions of infrastructure operations, maintenance and emergency services, etc.
3. That Montezuma Road between Voyager and Old Ranch should be annexed into the City at this time.
