With this referral, CGS received a request to provide Review Comments (Email dated January 18, 2022); Final Plat (United Planning & Engineering, February 6, 2008); Letter of Intent (Terra Nova Engineering, Inc., June 2021); and Soil, Geology and Wastewater Study (Entech Engineering, Inc., July 22, 2005). We understand that the site consists of 8 single-family residential lots with a minimum lot size of 5 acres, including individual well and septic systems.

The site does not contain steep slopes, is located in an “Area of Minimal Flood Hazard,” is not undermined, and is not exposed to any geologic hazards or unusual geotechnical constraints that would preclude the proposed residential use and density. As noted on page 3 of Entech’s report, geologic conditions that will impose some constraints on development and land use include areas of artificial fill, potentially seasonal shallow groundwater areas, loose or collapsible soils, hydrocompaction, and possible expansive soils. CGS recommends the County require the applicant to add a plat note listing these geologic hazards/constraints.

We offer the following comments.

1. Wetlands/drainage retention areas: Two wetlands (Freshwater Emergent) and drainage retention areas are located within the site. As noted in Entech’s report (page 8), “These areas appear to be associated with older blowout features and surrounded by older sand dune ridges.” According to the Final Plat, these areas are designated as “No Build Area”. Setbacks from the mapped wetlands and drainage easements should be noted on the plans.

2. Existing structures/elements: As noted in the Letter of Intent (page 1), “The site does not currently have any significant structures as they were burned down in a fire since the initial approval.” Any existing or remaining structure or outbuilding (including foundations, utilities, septic systems components) should be removed, disposed of, and properly backfilled.

3. Geology: The site is mapped as underlain by eolian (wind-deposited) sand and silt. Eolian soils tend to be loose, fine-grained, low density, and hydrocompactive, meaning they can lose strength, settle, compress, or collapse under a structural load and/or when water infiltrates the soils. The soils are underlain by sandstone and claystone of the Dawson Formation at an unknown depth. If claystone layers capable of producing high swell pressures are present within a few feet of foundation-bearing elevations, they can cause structural damage if not properly characterized and mitigated.

4. Soil engineering properties and foundation design: The subsurface conditions are based on the results of three profile holes drilled to depths of 10 feet and used to evaluate suitability for the proposed development and individual sewage system feasibility. CGS agrees with Entech (page 8) that “Specific recommendations should be made after additional investigation of each building site.” Lot-specific geotechnical investigation, analysis, and, if necessary, mitigation recommendations should be submitted at building permit application. This recommendation should be noted on the plat. Lot-specific geotechnical investigations should be performed to:

• Determine the thickness and extent to which the soils beneath each proposed structure are subject to collapse under loading and/or wetting;
• Characterize soil and bedrock engineering properties such as density, strength, water content, swell/consolidation potential, percolation rates (used for septic design), and bearing capacity;
• Determine depths to groundwater, bedrock, and any impermeable layers that might lead to the development of a perched water condition;
• Verify the feasibility of full-depth basements, if planned;
• Provide earthwork, foundation, floor system, and surface and subsurface drainage recommendations for design purposes. Appropriate surface and subsurface drainage mitigation is critical for minimizing differential foundation movement.

1. The main address listed in the El Paso County Assessor’s database is 14655-14895 Davis Road. This address will no longer be used with the plat.
2. Standard Final Plat Comment:
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. Check should be made out to PIKES PEAK REGIONAL BUILDING DEPARTMENT or PPRBD. Paid directly to the Enumerations Department. An additional over the phone transaction fee of $3.50 will apply for any credit card payment. Since this area was not platted prior and Enumerations did not start collecting fees for plats until January 2008, platting fees will be due for this plat.
c. A copy of the final recorded plat is required prior to plan submittal for RESIDENTIAL. A copy of the final recorded plat is required prior to approval in the Enumerations department on any COMMERCIAL plan submittal. Amy@pprbd.org; Brent@pprbd.org; or BeckyA@pprbd.org (Please email the Enumerations staff that reviewed your project). All mylar reviews will be reviewed via “pdf”. The mylar will be stamped by Enumerations for accuracy and returned to the applicant and the planner. All payments to be mailed to RBD via a check or credit card payment over the phone. Plats should not be recorded prior to Enumerations receiving payment. If you would like an in person review, you will have to make an appointment on our website.
3. Why is the street name changing from Lois Lane Way to Moonglow Heights? Shouldn’t this be a single name since this is a logical continuation?
4. Since note 2 on the plat states “No direct access will be allowed to Curtis Road & Davis Road, All Lots will access from interior roads, there shall be no vehicle access from any residential lot in this subdivision to Davis Road and/or Curtis Road”. Additionally note 16 states lots 5 & 6 will share the northern access and lots 4,7 and 8 will share the southern access. Where is the northern access to lot 6 if access from Davis is not allowed? Place addressing markers where the lots are intended to access, (xxx).
