John and Cindy Hassrick were present at the Plan Commission meeting and asked to discuss a potential rezoning. John & Cindy had indicated that they currently own a short forty that is currently zoned A-1 Legal Nonconforming and wanted to split off the house from the other land without having to put any land into conservancy. They purchased the property on January 5th, 2005 which was 5 days after the comprehensive plan was adopted to allow a one-time split for people who owned between 4 and 70 acres prior to January 1st, 2005. John & Cindy Hassrick indicated that if they knew about the Comprehensive Plan criteria they would have closed prior to the end of the year versus after the first of the year. Plan Commission member David Blume suggested that they provide a copy of their accepted offer to prove that they had a contract prior to January 1st, 2005. David Blume had indicated that he personally would be in favor of allowing the one time split if the proper documentation was given and filled with the Township but couldn’t speak for the entire Plan Commission. The rezoning was further discussed and it was indicated that both parcels would have to be rezoned AR-1 due to current county zoning or one lot would be AR-1 and the other would have to be C-1 Conservancy per county regulations.

David Blume made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:45 p.m. Katherine Cahill seconded the motion. Motion carried.


Respectfully Submitted,


Sara Olson, Clerk/Treasurer
