Intended agricultural use, county approved barn

[  By Katherine Nettles  ]

Bulldozers, diggers and other heavy construction equipment have caught the attention of many drivers and bikers along Highway 135 just south of Crested Butte South over the past two months as the large patch of land east of the highway has undergone changes that have troubled neighbors. as well. The plot, which was once owned by the Allen family and changed hands last year, has been approved by Gunnison County for certain developments like the construction of a farm barn, but the new owner has been given an order to shutdown this month for removing excess building materials. property without a permit. It also navigates a Conservation Easement (CE) held by the Crested Butte Land Trust over part of the property.

Hunter Family Real Estate Ltd. owns the 520+ acre parcel of land, described in Gunnison County records as being south of Allen Homesites and CB South. Stewart Hunter contacted the Crested Mound News by email, confirming that his family purchased the ranch a year ago and intends to continue using the land primarily for agricultural purposes. “We are making various agricultural improvements and may make other residential improvements in the future,” Hunter wrote. “We live in the valley and I’ve spent most of my life in ranching.”

Hunter confirmed that 180 acres of the parcel are subject to a conservation easement with the CB Land Trust and a further 360 acres are not subject to any easements. A barn is approved for construction in the CE part of the property, but residential development is not.

According to Cathie Pagano, the county’s assistant director for community and economic development, Hunter submitted an agricultural exemption request for the construction of a barn structure described as 82 x 64 feet with a calculated total area of ​​5,727 square feet, including an attic and a covered side. area at 180 Upper Allen Road in June 2022. His office ruled the exemption met county standards and approved it in July “for storage and maintenance of ranch equipment, gear, feed for animals and livestock vaccination/castration, and branding equipment located on the farm,” according to the Notice of Approval.

“Gunnison County regulations allow exemptions for road construction permits, building permits, access permits and ground disturbance for properties and/or structures that meet the definition of a holding. agriculture and/or agricultural structure,” Pagano wrote in a statement.

However, Gunnison County issued a stop work order and notice of violation this month to Hunter for work outside of those parameters. Pagano explained that “removal of more than 350 cubic meters of material on the property” is a level of land disturbance that requires a land use change permit subject to administrative review, and although the owner has since submitted the required administrative review application, county staff has not yet reviewed it.

In a letter to Hunter dated Sept. 9, 2022, Gunnison County Senior Land Use Planner Rachel Sabbato wrote, “These parcels have been approved for an agricultural exemption in coordination with the conservation easement held by CB Land Trust and big game management by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. . Use of the parcels for anything other than what is defined as agriculture or farm structure is prohibited as defined in the Gunnison County Land Use Resolution (LUR) of each. Sabbato quoted that according to the land use resolution, “the cutting of roads or the construction and maintenance of a road that provides access only to an agricultural holding will be permitted.

“It is apparent from the heavy machinery and other miscellaneous building materials on the site that this parcel is used to support the mining of building materials which generates over 300 cubic meters,” she continued. “This was confirmed in the letter received from Tyler Harpel dated September 1, 2022. Use of the property for the extraction of building materials in excess of 300 cubic yards is not exempt under the Exemption Permit agricultural.

“All activity at this excavation site must cease immediately until this permit is issued,” Sabbato continued. Pursuant to the LUR, Sabbato described that a review fee of $3,054 would also be assessed, in addition to the necessary administrative review application fee.

Pagano said his office does not have specific CE information on any portion of the property, “But we are aware there is an easement on the property and the CB Land Trust owns the easement,” a- she declared.

CB Land Trust executive director Jake Jones said he had been in touch with Hunter somewhat over the past year, but it was relatively new territory for the Land Trust.

“It was kept in 1997 by the Allen family,” says Jones. “It has been preserved as a historic working landscape. The owner retained a number of rights in the agricultural conservation easement for agricultural purposes. »

Jones believes change is what people respond to. There is the presence of heavy construction equipment, piles and large berms built on the property which now obstruct the view of several neighbours. Some of those neighbors have contacted both the county and the Land Trust to express their dismay.

“I have heard many neighbors of the property asking for clarification on what can and cannot be done on the property. To me it is really important to define the authority of the Land Trust in protecting the easement of conservation against the county permitting process and, in this case, the agricultural exemption to the land use code,” Jones said.

“Conservation easements are complex; they are unique to each property,” he added. “The Land Trust takes its responsibility to protect our conservation easements very seriously and we also work hard with landowners to protect private property rights.”

Jones says that to her knowledge, no landowner has ever breached a conservation easement that violates the Land Trust. “The ranches we have in conservation are owned by historic landowners. This is the first time that something like this has happened, that a ranch has changed hands and the vision of this property has changed,” he said.

Each EC has its own legal wording, of course, and Jones pointed out that he hasn’t observed any easement violations on the property. But should a conflict arise, the Land Trust has general measures in place to deal with it. The first step, Jones said, is to notify a breach and then work to resolve the issue. If the issue is not resolved through these initial efforts, it will go to mediation, and if that is unsuccessful, the final step will be litigation. “We have never been in the position, to my knowledge, of having to argue to defend the terms of a conservation easement,” Jones reiterated.

Hunter did not comment on the stop order or details of any development on his property, such as roads or berms, but he did comment on the prominent event tent that has been erected in recent weeks. He said it was for a family party and then a wedding. County staff said there were no issues there because the county requires special event permits for events with more than 50 vehicles or 200 people, but weddings and funerals (which don’t not part of a business operation) are exempt from licensing requirements.

To boost innovation, think “around the box” https://lepochervolvopenta.com/to-boost-innovation-think-around-the-box/ Mon, 26 Sep 2022 18:06:25 +0000 https://lepochervolvopenta.com/to-boost-innovation-think-around-the-box/ open share links close share links Commodity companies live or die by their operational efficiency.

Commodity companies live or die by their operational efficiency. Since the market treats commodities as interchangeable regardless of who produces them, firms must compete on their ability to produce more for less.

And commodity markets are not limited to basic resources like grains, metals or energy products. Even complex machinery and equipment can be commoditized in a competitive global marketplace.

Epiroc, a manufacturer of mining, drilling and construction equipment, has broken new ground in its long-established industry by identifying needs ranging from digital services to electrified mining vehicles and giant robotic drilling rigs that can be controlled at hundreds of kilometers. These large, expensive machines are complex and the competition is global, sophisticated and aggressive.

It is only by understanding the needs of its customers and developing new complementary innovations that Epiroc has been able to differentiate itself, said Jon Torpy, President and CEO of United States. “Going back a decade and then looking ahead, you try to anticipate the challenges and decide, ‘How are we going to continue to be a solutions provider as this evolution happens? ‘ “, did he declare.

In a recent MIT Executive Education online seminar with MIT keynote speaker Sloan Torpy explained how Epiroc has driven innovation, including creating a program for product managers to explore new products and services that complement existing products, add value for customers and generate new revenue streams for Epiroc.

Go beyond selling “dumb iron”

Torpy described Epiroc as a four-year-old company founded in 1873. Atlas Copco, a 150-year-old Swedish company, owned Epiroc until it was spun off as a separate company in 2018. Torpy is part of the company since 1999.

Epiroc sells equipment to some of the largest mining companies in the world. To stay relevant, the company has integrated robotics and automation into its products. One of its recent innovations is the remote automation of 150 ton drill rigs operating deep within a copper mine. “They are robots. They get a set of instructions and they work for 12 to 24 hours straight without human interaction,” Torpy said. “The operator is distant – in some cases over 1,000 miles away.”

Automation has clear benefits for human safety. It also enables Epiroc to move from the individual sale of heavy machinery to ongoing partnerships with mining companies.

“As an equipment supplier, we are not going to be around 140 years old. [from now], at the levels of profitability we expect, if we just build and sell ‘dumb iron,’” Torpy said. “We needed to change the way we are perceived – to show that we can be a robotics company, that we can be a company that understands data and what to do with it, and that we can identify digitalization opportunities. .”

Make product managers the CEOs of their products

Yet Epiroc can never forget that “dumb iron” – expensive machinery – is at the core of Epiroc’s business, Torpy said. They need to focus their innovation efforts not only on improving these products, but also on adding new products and services around them.

To do this, the company developed a Product Owner Excellence Program, which encouraged employees in product or portfolio management positions to “act like you’re the CEO of your product,” as the company said. said Torpy. “The people closest to the problem are best placed to solve it,” he said. (It helps that Epiroc already has a decentralized structure, he added.)

As an example, Torpy recalled a conversation with a colleague who completed the Product Owner program. They were standing at Epiroc’s booth at a trade show, and the colleague took Torpy to visit a redesigned undercarriage for a mining bulldozer.

At first glance, the machine looked ordinary. But the product team had reconfigured the undercarriage to support a self-contained drill without having to change the track system on which the drill rides.

“Through this program, people are finding a better way to do things without over-complicating them,” Torpy said. “People coming out of the program are really motivated to work this way.”

Innovate “around the box”

Robertson, who runs an education executive course on innovate in existing markets, has previously described this approach as around-the-box innovation: building complementary services and experiences around core product offerings. LEGO, for example, has generated growth and profits in its business not through groundbreaking and disruptive innovation, but by creating events, games, TV shows, theme parks and feature films that encourage children (and adults) to play with their basic brick. -based construction games.

Related Articles

Innovate around the box is different from the innovation outside the box – exploring disruptive and game-changing innovations that are expensive, risky and difficult,” Robertson said.

Companies that stay inside the box, on the other hand, risk being overtaken by their competitors and commoditized. One of the symptoms of the emphasis on innovation “inside the box” is a proliferation of similar products, which Torpy called “the disease of plus”.

“The idea is, ‘This exercise was awesome. Let’s build another drill similar to this one, but slightly larger, and then another drill similar to this one, but slightly smaller. And then let’s build another one like this, but in yellow,” he said. In other words, making essentially the same product over and over again, increasing costs but providing little benefit to customers and generating no growth.

Understand the financial impact of product decisions

The main benefit of innovation around the box is the ability to bring innovation (automation, remote control, data analytics) to products that customers already know and love. The challenge is that changes to an existing product can impact the bottom line in ways product teams may not realize.

That’s why financial literacy is at the heart of the Product Owner Excellence Program. The goal is for anyone who is a product CEO, regardless of background or professional background, to understand the ins and outs of an income statement and the impact of product changes or improvements on others. parts of the business.

“Understanding the consequences of technical decisions is really important. We can develop great things all day, but if they’re expensive and don’t make us money, or if we don’t think about the business model proactively, they’re not sustainable,” he said. . “If you make decisions and totally ignore the [profits and losses], that can be a pretty big road to going bankrupt. If we do the right thing for Epiroc, then the KPIs will all fall into place.

September 24, 2022 – West Bend, WI – “The weeds are about 8 weeks high,” a neighbor said as a few pieces of heavy equipment stood idle at the construction site of a new panera bread and Chipotlea popular Mexican grill-style restaurant.

Construction on the southeast corner of Parkway Drive and Paradise Drive in West Bend, WI began in April 2022 when the former Shell South gas station and car wash was razed.

A certified survey map CSM-22-004 has been submitted to the Plan Commission to create two lots located at the southeast corner of Parkway Drive and W. Paradise Drive, by Ram Subedi, PMM Development, LLC.

panera chipotle card

Plans showed a 2,500 square foot building closest to Parkway Drive for the proposed Chipotle and a 3,800 square foot building to the east for a proposed Panera.

The foundations were poured and then…. nothing.

Neighbors began to speculate about the reasons for a slowdown, including “supply chain issues” or “worker shortages” or even “permit issues.”

Several calls have been made to the city and this week City Engineer Max Marechal said the slowdown was due to a change in the location of the water lateral.

“They only had one water plane coming from the northeast corner of the property, but they couldn’t connect to the main there, so they changed the plane to connect from the south of property at Parkway Drive,” he said. . “They had to change their plans and then make the connection and I know it set them back.”

Marechal said he did not know where the contractors were at with regard to installing an underground pipe and then starting construction of the building.

Marechal did not believe the updated plans should be sent back to the Planning Commission, but he confirmed that changing the water pipes had a ripple effect on the permitting process.

“We have not yet signed this permit for the storm water, due to the change in the water diversion they had to amend the CSM (certified survey map) to include an easement for these water diversions” , did he declare. “We are waiting for them to retrieve the CSM with the location of the easement and once that is registered we can approve this permit and I am told that the CSM document is currently under review.”

If additional permits are also pending, Marshal said he was “not aware”.

District 1 Alderman John Butschlick also followed up with an investigation into the project’s delay. “I spoke with planning and development, and they said everything with the city was up to date and the owners were waiting for documents with the state,” he said.

According to initial information, Panera wants to open in the spring of 2023.

Stay tuned.

This is a work story, and more details will be released as information becomes available.

The AS750 is wider than the AS600 with an increased wheelbase for even greater stability while the higher engine power provides increased lifting and loading capacity.

Mecalac, a world leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of compact construction equipment for urban environments, has introduced three new models of wheel loaders to the North American market. The all new AS750, AS850 and AS1000 models join the previously launched swing loaders, the AS600, AS900tele, AS1600 and AS210.

Mecalac pivot loaders feature a rigid frame and three steering modes – 2-wheel, 4-wheel and 4-wheel crab – that allow for tighter turns than a standard articulated loader. Combine that with the Mecalac swing boom, and you have a machine that can perform a full swing in a footprint that’s 20% smaller than a conventional loader, according to the manufacturer.

At the same time, the swing loader is designed to maintain 100% stability regardless of position. With an exclusive integrated counterweight combined with an automatic rear axle locking system, the bucket and its contents can be lifted and rotated up to 90 degrees to either side without any loss of stability.

Finally, the swing boom allows the machine to be positioned just once to perform a loading task, reducing clutter and saving time.

“Mecalac’s swing loaders bring new capabilities to the North American market,” said Peter Bigwood, Managing Director of Mecalac North America.

“Mecalac has designed a product that fills the gaps in traditional loaders and offers a tool capable of operating in a confined space, economical in its movements, improving productivity and perfectly stable in all positions. The new models offer all of these benefits in the 11,000 to 15,000 pound range.

At just over 11,000 lbs (5,000 kg), with a bucket capacity of 0.98 cu. yds., the AS750 is the second smallest swing loader model. Compared to the AS600, the new model is wider with a longer wheelbase (6’1″) for even greater stability while the higher engine power (61 hp/45 kW) provides lifting capacity and increased loading.

The parallel bucket, or P-bucket, offers increased precision during handling operations, especially with pallet forks or the load hook. Finally, the AS750 is designed with a spacious cab and two doors to give the operator optimum visibility for a safer jobsite.

For those looking for even more productivity, the mid-size AS850, with an operating weight of 13,184 lbs. (5,980 kg) and a bucket capacity of 1.1 cu. yds., is the answer. This model encapsulates all the benefits of the AS Series swing loaders with an optional increased travel speed of up to 25 mph.

A power boost over the AS850, the AS1000 is also a mid-size model at 14,639 pounds. (6,640 kg) and a bucket capacity of approximately 1.3 cu. yards. It offers increased speed and efficiency with its high-torque 75 hp (55.4 kW) 4-cylinder engine. An optional high-flow hydraulic line delivers up to 120 l/min, suitable for driving hydraulic attachments.

WATCH: Romanian citizens block construction equipment at NATO military base Credit: Twitter @AZmilitary1

Videos of Romanian citizens in Cincsor blocking construction material from a NATO military base began circulating on social media on Tuesday, September 20.

Footage of Romanian citizens blocking NATO military base equipment was shared on Twitter, with one user posting:

⛔ 🇷🇴Romanians are blocking passages for NATO equipment.”

“The inhabitants of the village of Chinkshor, in Romania, are trying by all means to prevent the construction of a NATO military base. Now they have blocked the bridge on which the materials are transported with concrete blocks. »

The reason why residents of the town of Cincsor, in the Romanian county of Brassov, are blocking the passage of military trucks involved in the construction of a nearby NATO base, is said to be due to fears for the safety of the bridge.

“In Brasov, a convoy of military equipment got stuck on a bridge in the town of Chinkshor. Fed up with the constant movement of the trucks, the villagers placed concrete blocks in the way of the vehicles.

“The bridge is one of the few access routes to the Chinkshor training ground, where work is underway to build a base for the NATO group,” sources quoted as saying politically.

Vehicles carrying less than 12 tons are the maximum limit allowed for those wishing to cross the bridge, but the Romanian Ministry of Defense reportedly gave the order to send the trucks there, which were also carrying 60-ton tanks.

Residents erected concrete blocks to stop them, eight French trucks were reportedly blocked on Tuesday.

Residents say if the bridge is damaged they may not be able to access the roads.

The news follows reports that Romania wanted to increase the number of NATO troops in the country and extend their stay, according to the head of the country’s foreign ministry, Bogdan Aurescu, on June 15.

As Rhode Island grapples with the post-pandemic challenges we face, including a bottlenecked supply chain and increased consumer demand, truck drivers remain on the front lines to keep our communities supplied. . America’s truck drivers are truly the heroes of the American everyday, and as we come out of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, which ran from September 11-17, we are remembering an industry – and the people – that are vital to the American economy and our communities.

More than 80% of American communities rely on trucking as their sole means of delivering their everyday goods; it is not ships, trains or planes that deliver directly to our doorsteps. The clothes we wear, the food in our kitchen, the medicine in our homes – and all the other items you use, come to you from a truck driver. Truckers collectively work seven days a week to deliver. On holidays and weekends, when many are enjoying time with family and friends, truckers are on the road to ensure our deliveries continue.

As hurricane season approaches for many coastal states and climate change threatens other weather systems like tornado winds and wildfires, truckers are working during the toughest weather systems. Whether it’s a downpour or a snow blizzard, truckers keep deliveries going, so our most needed items don’t get lost or delayed. They are also often among the first responders who are the first on sight during national emergencies – delivering trucks loaded with water and other supplies, as we have seen mostly recently in Mississippi this month. after floods damaged the water supply system.

While the trucking industry delivers to every corner of America, the industry’s goal is to deliver the items that support our communities and our economy efficiently and affordably, and to do so safely and time. Truckers take great pride in ensuring the safe and timely deliveries of goods that keep communities strong, but the dedication and passion of the men and women in the industry extends far beyond the deliveries they make.

As the “eyes and ears of our road,” there are countless amazing stories of selfless acts of service truckers perform on the road. Whether it’s stopping to help change tires for motorists or road accidents, or helping to identify and report cases of human trafficking on the roads, truckers can be considered as community guardians – an extra set of eyes and ears to help protect the communities they serve.

When you think of trucking cargo delivery, the first companies that come to mind are often the major national trucking brands, but the fact is, there are all types of carriers. These carriers deliver everything from groceries and medicine, road construction equipment, oil and gas to our homes and cars. In addition to the specialized delivery sectors within the trucking industry, there are also companies of all sizes – from branded trucking companies to large and midsize trucking carriers and small businesses.

In fact, you may be surprised to learn that trucking companies are mostly small, family businesses. The U.S. Department of Transportation cites over 91% of trucking companies operate six trucks or fewer, and over 97% operate fewer than 20 trucks.

The success of the US trucking industry is essential to a strong economy. With trucking employing more than 7.6 million people, including 3.36 million professional truck drivers, in communities across the country, the industry is a true economic engine for our country’s economy. Here in Rhode Island, the industry’s more than 3,000 businesses employ more than 17,000 residents.

A projected annual shortage of 60,000 to 80,000 truckers over the next decade is looming, putting additional pressure on our current group of truckers, making it even more important to appreciate the workforce. current trucking.

Each September, we recognize the American trucking industry and its drivers at the annual event. This Appreciation Week was created to raise awareness of the critical contributions the U.S. trucking industry makes to our country and our economy, and to thank the drivers who make these final deliveries possible.

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is a timely reminder for our community to reflect on the critical role America’s truck drivers play in keeping our communities supplied, the supply chain strong, and the country moving forward. despite all the challenges the industry is facing. So when you see a truck driver, say hello to a good trucker, say hello or even offer him a cup of coffee. A little thank you this week goes a long way.

DULUTH — Ryan Milton had a full-time job about a week after graduating from Northeast Range School in Babbitt last spring.

The 18-year-old spent his summer as a greaser on a three-person crew at a gravel pit north of Duluth, making sure the massive blowing machines remained in working order as they crushed and sorted rocks in different consistencies for regional road projects.

“I make big boulders small,” Milton joked during a free moment at work on Wednesday.

Milton estimated that he works about 60 to 70 hours a week and has earned about $25,000 before taxes since he started. Originally from Embarrass, Milton and a handful of other mine workers live in small trailers near the entrance to the gravel pit.

Money, of course, appealed to him, but Milton also noted that other jobs in the same vein can be dropped during the winter.

“You can’t put asphalt on the road all year round and dig roads all year round, but what you can do all year round is crush a rock,” Milton said. “All over the world, there will be a need for stone crushing. »

Milton’s interest in heavy equipment began at a young age and he said he didn’t want to go to college after graduating from high school. His father has worked the same kind of job for the past 20 years and helped Milton land the job at the gravel pit, which is operated by contractors Ulland Brothers.

“It was kind of a thing where I was like, if I don’t like it, I can always change it,” Milton told the News Tribune.

Along with merry rides in his grandfather’s front loader and countless hours of tinkering in the family garage, Milton began his fledgling career via a “path” for budding operations engineers at the Minnesota Virtual Academy, a fully online K-12 school. by Houston Public Schools in southeastern Minnesota.

About 350 miles north of Houston, Milton learned general maintenance techniques, grading and staking, and construction-level math alongside his traditional high school required classes. He said he believed the courses helped him pass the tests he needed to join Local 49 of the International Union of Operating Engineers. Milton said he had a job in Ulland before he received his high school diploma.

The virtual academy welcomes K-12 students from across the state. It has been a wing of the Houston School District for 21 years. Cash per student in the state is the financial bread and butter of school districts in Minnesota, and Houston district leaders established the academy to attract more students and keep the district’s doors open. according to Superintendent Mary Morem.

About 500 students attend Houston Public Schools in person and about 1,600 more attend the virtual academy.

The “pathways” within the academy are aimed at students in grades 6 through 12, and they are much newer than the virtual school – they are in the same vein as the career “academies” that have seen the day in the region over the years. last years. Students who choose a virtual school path take courses designed to give them a taste of future careers in nursing, IT, marketing and other fields.

The Operations Engineers course that Milton has taken is run in conjunction with Local 49, whose members provide staff time and the use of a Hinckley Training Center for students on the course.

A

bill approved by state lawmakers

in March 2021, allocated $100,000 to the District of Houston so that administrators can reimburse school districts whose students opt for a part-time virtual academy path. The goal is to avoid straining the finances of these districts if a student opts for a bridging class.

The same bill also requires Houston leaders to report to the Legislature on the program by January 2024.

Morem said academy pathways can help students even if they don’t consider the area a given pathway might direct them to.
