Viewpoint Estates Filing No.2 (38.8391°, -104.4356°) is a site that is not undermined, does not have steep slopes, and the geologic conditions imposing hazards and constraints can be mitigated through avoidance or commonly employed engineering methods. CGS concurs with Entech (p.6) that to mitigate constraints from the geologic conditions, site-specific investigations within each lot will be necessary before the design and construction of structures and septic systems.

These additional investigations are needed to investigate soil, bedrock, and groundwater conditions, take soil samples, and perform laboratory testing to identify swell/consolidation and any other engineering properties necessary to develop foundation, utility, pavement, and septic system recommendations. Provided these additional investigations are performed (as stated in Plat Note 11) and that they also address any site-specific impacts from potential subsurface groundwater (Entech (p.3): “Isolated sand layers within the soil profile can carry water in the subsurface”) potential for hydrocompaction (a geologic process) of collapsible soils (a geologic deposit), loose soils, potentially seasonal shallow groundwater, erosion, and regional hazards related to radon and seismicity the Colorado Geological Survey (CGS) has no objection to the proposed residential use and density.

It appears all lots will be accessed off of Chelsey Drive and will have a Chelsey Drive address. Once the development plan is approved we will address the development. See further comments below regarding the development plan.

Standard Development Plan comments apply:
1. For assignment of addressing for lots and tracts, place addressing marker (xxx) where they are intended to be utilized. Addressing marker for lots should be front door.
2. Provide a 100 scale copy or larger of the entire APPROVED development plan (d.p.) to this department so that addressing can be assigned. Once received, the development plan will be placed on a list to be addressed. Development plans that are not yet approved may be addressed, however additional plan review fees will accrue if changes are made to the D.P. after initial addressing.

Disapproved - Please respond to the below comments:
The Fire protection report is not correct and is misleading. The Ellicott Fire Department has only one part-time manned Fire station (Station-2) located 75 N Ellicott Highway. There are 3 additional unmanned fire stations in the district. The photos of fire equipment are of apparatus that are no longer in service except for one water tender. The third paragraph in the commitment letter is essentially the fire protection report as required.

It is believed that the Wildfire risk assessment underestimates the potential burn probability. The area is in light flashy fuels that can ignite easily. The occurrence factors and should be a moderate to low burn with a probability with a moderate occurrence. The rate of spread is generally moderate to extreme.

Water Supply – Fire Protection water supply is required. 2 options – The 1st Option is a 30,000 Gallon Cistern; this would have to be located near the intersection of Chesley Dr & Antelope Dr and on a portion of Lot 4 or Lot 5. The 2nd Option is to connect Fire Hydrants to the current water system assuming the main is at least a 4 IN. A total of 3 fire hydrants would be required. One Fire hydrant at the intersection of Chesley Dr & Antelope Dr and two more hydrants one 1,000 FT to the East and the other 1,000 Ft to the West.

FYI: we are concerned with the high-water table and flooding in the drainage areas. This could cause problems if a cistern is used. For this reason, we would allow for only one fire hydrant to supply the area if - the fire hydrant can be shown to provide 750 GPM or greater then only one hydrant would be required at the intersection of Chesley Dr & Antelope Dr. Contact Ellicott Utilities for the main size and if fire hydrants are possible. This would be the preferred water supply method.

For approval of the preliminary plat:
The Fire Protection Report needs to be removed and re-written. A fire protection water system type needs to be selected. The $100.00 Fire department review fee needs to be paid to the Ellicott Fire Department (check or cash only)
75 North Ellicott Hwy, Calhan, CO 80808

For approval of the final plat:
The preliminary plat needs to be approved. The new (approved) fire protection report needs to be attached. Documentation showing the detailed plans of the selected Fire Protection Water Supply System needs to be attached. If Cistern call me for a design specification. For Fire hydrant the water mains need to be shown (Utility Plans). The $131.00 Fire department review fee needs to be paid to the Ellicott Fire Department (check or cash only)
75 North Ellicott Hwy, Calhan, CO 80808

The primary wildland fuel type for this proposal is grassland with scattered trees having a low wildfire hazard potential. No special fire mitigation plans or other actions are necessary for final approval by the Colorado State Forest Service. 12/2/2021 10:50:40 AM
