In the letter dated January 25, 2021 ( copy attached) this office previously provided its
opinion on the Preliminary Plan for 267 lots of the entire 67 acres of Falcon Meadows at Bent Grass
Subdivision, in which the subject 49 lots and 12.74 acres is a part. As described in our January 25, 2021 letter, the total water demand for the 267 residential lots is 95. 16 acre-feet per year for a 300 year water supply which will be supplied by Woodmen Hills Metropolitan District, and the proposed source of water have not changed in this submittal.

The Falcon Meadows at Bent Grass Filing 3 (38.9507, -104.6241) development will include 49 single-family residential lots and 2 tracts on approximately 12.74 acres. The available referral documents include a Soil and Geology Study (Rocky Mountain Group (RMG), Revised December 3, 2021), Letter of Intent (N.E.S., Inc., February 2022), Final Plat (Galloway, June 2, 2021), Construction Drawings (Galloway, January 20, 2022), and other documents.

Filing No. 3 is located outside the area designated as a floodplain per FEMA (Unnamed Tributary to Black Squirrel Creek No. 2, issued December 7, 2018). However, seasonally wet areas may occur within the west side of Filing No. 3 (Lots 38-45). CGS agrees with RMG on page 16 of their study, “The most significant geologic constraints to development recognized at this site are expansive/compressible soils and shallow groundwater.” CGS offers the following comments and recommendations.

Shallow groundwater and basement feasibility: Groundwater will fluctuate depending on the season, variations in rainfall, new development, proximity to drainages, etc. As a result, mitigation for shallow groundwater often becomes guesswork due to the inexact method of determining its impact on inhabitable below-grade areas (basements and crawlspaces). Groundwater measurements in test borings are limited to the time of year measured (a snapshot) and are inherently inaccurate in predicting depth to groundwater during the engineering life of a structure/development. The extent of the yearly variation in depth to groundwater must be known to determine basement feasibility.

As stated on page 14 in RMG’s report, “In areas where groundwater is anticipated to be within 14 feet of the original ground surface, Challenger Homes is proposing the use of non-basement foundations.” RMG’s soil borings indicate groundwater depths from 14 to 27 feet in the three test borings drilled in RMG’s 2019 preliminary study within Filing No. 3. RMG’s report did not provide groundwater measurements following this drilling program. Additionally, no test borings were drilled in Filing No. 3 during RMG’s 2020 drilling program.

RMG’s engineering and geology map (Figure 10) depicts lots 1-4 “to be restricted to non-basement construction,” while lots 5-49 include no restrictions. However, groundwater was encountered at a depth of 10 feet below grade in RMG’s test borings 6 and 11 (Filing No. 2) drilled near lots 33-38 of Filing No. 3. Therefore, if basement levels are planned for lots 5-49, CGS recommends the county require groundwater monitoring/observation to verify that groundwater is at depths greater than 14 feet of the original ground surface. This monitoring/observation program should be conducted immediately (before final plat approval) and checked frequently following drilling operations to determine if basements are feasible based on the developer’s restrictions. Additionally, the proposed floor levels must be at least three feet above maximum anticipated groundwater levels and maintained year-round. If groundwater is determined to be within 14 feet of the original ground surface, then these lots should also be “restricted to non-basement construction” and noted on the final plat. By not addressing this issue early in development, it becomes the homeowner who eventually learns if basements are feasible or not based on lot-specific soil investigations.

CGS agrees with RMG’s recommendation (page 20), “a site-specific subsurface soil investigations should be performed for all proposed structures, including (but not limited to) residences, retaining walls and pumphouses, commercial buildings, etc.” The site-specific soils and engineering investigations will be required to evaluate the expansive/compressible soils, the requirement for overexcavation and replacement with structural fill (page 12), depth to bedrock and groundwater, and to develop recommendations for foundations, floor systems, subsurface drainage, pavement, etc.

1. 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.
2. Standard Final 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. 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. Total amount due for this project is for 49 lots and Zero tracts with addresses. Total due is $490.00.
c. A copy of the final recorded plat is required prior to plan submittal for RESIDENTIAL. Amy@pprbd.org; (Please email the Enumerations staff that reviewed your project).
Mylar reviews can 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, please make an appointment on our website.
