Please see attached administrative comments, including exhibits, on behalf of El Paso County Parks. No regional park fees are required for the application, as the Board of County Commissioners has elected to not require park fees for commercial subdivisions. However, required park fees may be assessed in the future for Tracts A and B at time of platting depending on land use. Staff would also like to see the sidewalks along Pinehurst Circle be constructed to the Cherry Creek Trail. 2/9/2022 4:10:52 PM

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) has reviewed the plans for the Monument Academy Minor Subdivision in El Paso County. Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is in receipt of the above referenced permit application and is familiar with the site. Based both on the location and type of action that has been taken CPW anticipates that the impacts to the wildlife resource from this project would be negligible.

We appreciate being given the opportunity to comment. Please feel free to contact District Wildlife Manager, Aaron Berscheid, should you have any questions or require additional information at 719-439-9601 or via email at aaron.berscheid@state.co.us

1. Address to lot 1 is 4303 Pinehurst Circle. Add this address to lot 1 on page 3 as close to the edge of the lot as possible, parallel to Pinehurst Circle. Are addresses needed for tracts A & B? If so place the addressing marker(xxx) where the addresses is needed.
2. Standard Plat Comments:
a. Enumerations will review the mylar prior to plat for address placement, street names, and title block.
b. A $10.00 per lot and tract platting fee will be due at the time of the review of the mylar, (two addresses per lot and tract). If an address is not needed on a tract then no fee applies.

Colorado Geological Survey has reviewed the final plat for the minor subdivision at the southeast corner of Highway 83 and Walker Road in El Paso County. The available referral documents include Plat Drawings (Rampart Surveys, LLC, October 4, 2021) and a Geotechnical Engineering Study, Proposed Monument Academy School, Vicinity of SEC of HWY 83 & HWY 105, El Paso County, Colorado (Kumar & Associates, Inc. (Kumar), Project No. 19-2-112, February 25, 2019).

The minor land subdivision consists of the following:
• Lot 1 (19.38 acres), which includes the recently constructed Monument Academy High School structure, recreational fields, and associated parking;
• An 80-foot wide interior road right-of-way to facilitate the existing Jane Lundeen Drive and the extension of Pinehurst Circle; and
• Four individual tracts (Tract A is 15.35 acres, Tract B is 19.90 acres, Tract C is 1.03 acres, and Tract D is 0.7 acres).

CGS understands that El Paso County has previously approved the school facility and roadways and that the four tracts will include future development. The site does not contain steep slopes, is not undermined, and is not exposed to any identified geologic hazards or unusual geotechnical constraints that would preclude the minor land subdivision. CGS has no objection to the approval of the minor land subdivision. We offer the following comments and recommendations for future improvements.

As noted on page 4 of Kumar’s geotechnical engineering study, “the clay soils in the area exhibited low to high swell potential when wetted. Shallow foundations and slabs placed directly on or near the expansive materials can experience differential movement causing distress if the materials are subjected to changes in moisture content.” CGS agrees with Kumar that “expansive clay soils be overexcavated and replaced with a nonexpansive structural fill.” CGS recommends that site-specific geotechnical studies be performed for future improvements within the four tracts.

The Colorado State Forest Service recommends that all forested acres be mitigated to reduce the risk of wildfire and that defensible space be created for each dwelling using the standards in the CSFS "Home Ignition Zone Guide" (formerly known as "Quick Guide FIRE 2012-1: Protecting Your Home From Wildfire") located on the Colorado State Forest Service website.

https://csfs.colostate.edu/media/sites/22/2021/04/2021_CSFS_HIZGuide_Web.pdf

In addition, we recommend that all wildfire mitigation be completed before or during dwelling construction.
