CMD and FHN signed a non-binding letter of intent dated January 12, 2022, outlining the general terms upon which CMD would be willing to provide water and wastewater service to FHN. At this time, CMD has not committed a specific quantity of water or wastewater service, and CMD has not analyzed or validated any aspect of the FHN Water Resource Report, including without limitation the demand quantities stated therein. CMD and FHN will evaluate the specific water demand quantities at the Preliminary Plan stage as required by the EPC Land Development Code. Any CMD commitment to future water or wastewater service to FHN is subject to the January 21, 2022 Letter of Intent and a future binding agreement between CMD and FHN.

In the absence of an agreement between FHN and a utility that already has reserved capacity in the CMD Wastewater Reclamation Facility, new capacity will have to be constructed at some point in the future to meet FHN's wastewater requirements.

For informational purposes: The soils and geology report reflect that mitigation measures will be required in order to develop portions of the site. Staff does not require these areas being graphically depicted on a sketch plan, unless the constraints cannot be mitigated. However, the applicant does appear to be proposing open space, trails, and buffer areas in those areas depicted on the plans as being challenging (e.g. seasonally wet). Site specific design and reports will be required at the preliminary plan stage of development, and staff anticipated plat notes being required. These details will be further reviewed at this time. 4/14/2022 4:15:10 PM

The Black Forest Land Use Committee has reviewed this proposal and recommends DENIAL.

This proposal must be denied for several reasons:

1. The proposal totally violates the 2.5-acre density, conservation, and compatibility requirements of Your El Paso County Master Plan.

2. Using non-renewable water for a development of this size is risky and short-sighted. Developments such as this should be required to use renewable water.

3. The county must not allow this development to move toward annexation because of the ripple effects it will have on further annexations.

4. Lack of fire impact fees places an undue burden on current residents of the fire district.

5. Increased traffic, congestion, light pollution and accompanying crime violates the rural, residential flavor of this area.

See the attached document for more detail on the above items.

EPC Staff makes recommendations to the Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners regarding conditions of approval related to mitigation of impacts as well as to put the applicant on notice in regards to requirements at later phases of development. These recommended conditions of approval will be passed along to the applicant, in their entirety, at the time of the item being scheduled for public hearing(s). Staff will likely add additional recommended conditions of approval, but at this time they are anticipated to include:

1. Condition regarding the necessary roadway improvements.
2. Condition regarding revised water at the preliminary plan stage.
3. Condition regarding the conservation easement (use restriction).

Those standard notations for a sketch plan:
1. Applicable park, school, transportation, drainage, bridge, and traffic fees shall be paid to the El Paso County Planning and Community Development Department at the time of recording any final plat.

2. Access locations and roadway classifications are conceptual only and will be determined at the time preliminary plan review. Final locations and classifications of roadways will be subject more detailed land use design and subdivision review.

Black Forest Fire Rescue having reviewed Land Development plans understands that Flying Horse North plans to meet the City of Colorado Springs standards for water and roads. We have also seen preliminary plans for houses and commercial properties to include a site for a future fire station to support the increased impact on public safety needs and increased access and egress points for potential evacuations, we can say at this time we have no comment but reserve the right to submit additional comments after review with Land development later this month.

Other corporations or organizations appear to be providing the water, sewer, gas, and electric utilities. As a result, we have no concerns about the project. 

After talking to Brian Whitehead (Mgr-System Extensions), I understood that CSU will not be serving any utilities for this project at this time point.
