   The BOCC also unanimously approved a release of $1,137,627 for subdivision improvements for the Stonebridge Filing No. 4 subdivision. All improvements have been completed and inspected.
   
   The commissioners unanimously approved a request by Meridian Ranch Investments Inc. to rezone 117.21 acres from a conceptual planned unit development to a site specific PUD. The approval included the preliminary plan to create 98 single-family residential lots, rights-of-way, open space and utility tracts on the property, which is located west of Eastonville Road at the end of Rex Road. The parcel is located within the boundaries of the Falcon/Peyton Small Area Master Plan.
   
   Eagle Rising
   The BOCC unanimously approved a request by CASAS Limited Partnership No. 4 to extend the expired Eagle Rising preliminary plan, which was approved Sept. 24, 2013. The 70.97-acre parcel consists of 17 single-family residential lots and zoned residential rural-2.5. It is located about 0.5 miles east of Black Forest Road and north of the anticipated eastern extension of Briargate Parkway and is included within the boundaries of the Black Forest Preservation Plan.
   
   Settlers Ranch
   The commissioners unanimously approved acceptance of certain streets within the Settlers Ranch Filing No. 2C subdivision into the EPC road maintenance system. All improvements have been completed and inspected.
   
   Falcon Park-n-Ride
   The BOCC unanimously approved a contract amendment to the intergovernmental agreement between the county and the Colorado Department of Transportation for construction of the Park-n-Ride facility at Highway 24 and Meridian Road, the New Meridian Road extension, the intersection improvements at Highway 24 and New Meridian Road and the intersection improvements at Highway 24 and Old Meridian Road. The amendment adds funds to the project and expands the scope of work to include the intersection improvements and construction of all improvements.
   
   Rolling Thunder business park
   The commissioners unanimously approved a request by Brewing Ground Investments to rezone 12.36 acres from one PUD to another PUD, amending the permitted uses within the industrial portion of the original PUD. The property is located at the southeast corner of the Woodmen Road and Golden Sage Road intersection and is included within the boundaries of the Falcon/Peyton Small Area Master Plan.

The property is zoned RR-5 and is included within the boundaries of the Falcon/Peyton Small Area Master Plan.
   
   NFH note: A complaint was filed against this property variance by Brent Neiser, owner and partner of Inhabit That LLC, which owns duplexes in the Falcon Vista subdivision, in early December. The complaint included the following: "Three duplexes are within the direct visual and audible range of the Property in question seeking a Variance. … The property is downstream from the runoff at Falcon Vista and has two watershed wetlands going through it. Where on the property is this event center planned and where will parking be placed? The land appears to be sub-optimal for this proposed development and purpose.”
   
   The variance will allow a 2,400 square-foot building to be used as an event center for private events up to 75 people.
