Board of Adjustments
Madam-chair Isenhart recessed the Board of Commissioners and opened the Board of Adjustment to hear and review a Variance Request presented by Community Development Director Tony Petersen and Tom Ihme owner of Base Camp at Golden Gate Canyon. The Variance Request was to allow the applicant to repurpose an abandoned swimming pool site located on the Base Camp property and develop a 20×30’ picnic pavilion on the pool site which is within the 45’ of the property line fronting Hwy 46. Current code requires 100’ setback from the front property line. The Board favored the action and approved the setback adjustment.
Retail Liquor License Renewal
The Board of Adjustments was adjourned and Isenhart called to order the Local Liquor Authority (LLA) to renewal a liquor license for Coyote Liquors presented by Deputy Clerk to the Board, Sharon Cate. The Board reviewed the application and approved the renewal unanimously.
The LLA was closed and Isenhart reconvened the regular Gilpin County Board of Commissioners meeting to hear and review the first reading of Ordinance #16-01 Pertaining to the Welfare, Control and Licensing of Dogs in Gilpin County. This is a revision of the previous Resolution for the Control and Licensing of Dogs (Resolution 99-13). The new proposed ordinance is essentially the same as the Resolution except in section B “voice control” has been removed and replaced with “actual physical and immediate control” the exceptions being dogs on your own property, service dogs, and dogs training to perform or performing livestock work or pursuing wild game in season. Motion to approve for publication was made by Commissioner Watson, and seconded by Commissioner Schmalz. Motion passed unanimously.
