The Town Plan Commission and the members of the public that were present discussed the survey results from the Smart Growth and Quality of Life Survey. The Plan Commission indicated that they didn’t feel any modification would be made in regards to the current density standards or the rural residential areas based upon the survey results.
Clerk/Treasurer Sara Olson presented information in regards to wind damages that had blown over a building on the New Horizon property. New Horizons had filed a rezoning application with a Conditional Use Permit to rezone the Non-Conforming parcels to continue current operations; however it was filed after the deadline. New Horizons asked if the Town would have any objections in the county issuing a zoning permit to rebuild the structure to avoid a delay in services. The Plan Commission indicated that they didn’t have any objections in the county issuing a zoning permit to replace the building as the petition would make these parcels conforming and they aren’t proposing any changes to their existing uses.
Kathi Cahill made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:18 p.m. Robert Fitzsimmons seconded the motion. Motion carried.
