Three things to know from Monday’s Windsor Town Board meeting
May 23, 2017
The Windsor Town Board discussed changes to the town's code, heard proclamations and said goodbye to a board member at Monday night's meeting.
An ordinance amending parts of the Windsor Municipal Code was approved unanimously. The ordinance will change the code to allow single-family detached residential dwellings to the list of permitted uses within the Corridor Activity Center.
The area at the intersection of I-25 and Colo. 392 will now allow a limited number of the houses to be built, Town Attorney Ian McCargar explained. The amendment was negotiated with Fort Collins.

"It also makes a change to the code that incorporates the number and location for the residential into the municipal code," he said.

The number and amount of acreage will also be limited, McCargar said. A public hearing was held on the code change and no public comments were made.
The board also approved an ordinance amending Windsor municipal code to better match tax measures previously approved by the voters.
"This ordinance is really a cleanup measure that we discovered was needed," McCargar said. "The amendment brings those inconsistent references into alignment with what the voters approved."
Mayor Kristie Melendez read two proclamations at the meeting, one for Mental Health Month, May, and one for National Public Works Week, May 21-27.
Joanna Sinnwell, marketing director for North Range Behavioral Health, accepted the proclamation for Mental Health Month, and said North Range will be opening a facility at 1170 W. Ash St. in Windsor early next year.
"Windsor has been so great to partner with so we're really excited about that," Sinnwell said.
Terry Walker, the director of the town's Public Works Department, accepted the proclamation for National Public Works Week, and invited board members to visit the department Friday for a celebration.
One board member's last meeting
Melendez, board members and staff thanked Windsor Town Board member Christian Morgan for his time spent on the board at the end of Monday night's meeting.
"On behalf of the town staff I want to thank you for your service," said Town Manager Kelly Arnold.
Morgan announced his resignation earlier this year, effective June 5, due to time constraints because of his position as town administrator in Kersey.
His last meeting with the board was bittersweet, Morgan said.
"It was a tremendous honor to be a part of the board," he said. "And although I'm looking forward to dedicating time to other projects, my experience on the town board, I'm unable to compare it to any other experience that I've had."
Although Monday was Morgan's last meeting, he will continue to serve as a board member until after the board holds interviews for his replacement June 5.
The board will also say goodbye to Windsor Town Board member Brenden Boudreau later this year. Boudreau's resignation was approved as part of the consent agenda Monday night.
He will be resigning effective July 31, leaving the District 5 seat open. The board has not yet announced if or how it will fill the position.
