Cole Wunnicke indicated that he wasn’t able to get together with the individuals in regards to modifications to the shared driveway or well agreement, he was in the process of getting Kurt Rule to contact the Township in regards to figuring out what the standards are for a commercial driveway but no contact has yet been made to the Township, and he indicated that he had contacted Mike Fenley in regards to the building code and seeking state approval but hasn’t made any additional contacts to start the process. Planning Commission Chair, Greg Jewell had explained to Cole some of the process in regards to obtaining state approved plans and the commercial building code. The Planning Commission members discussed with Cole the potential costs that would be going along with the project of seeking state approved plans, bringing the building up to code, the cost of installing a commercial driveway and parking lot, seeking approval to modify portions of the driveway in which you currently don’t own and indicated that Cole should get estimated costs together to verify that it is within his budget prior to seeking state approval. Cole had indicated that he was a non-profit organization and the project costs are likely unfeasible. Clerk/Treasurer Sara Olson had also indicated to the Plan Commission that she had been contacted by Scott Godfrey in regards to the current petition being in operation since October of 2015 in violation of the Iowa County Zoning Ordinance. Clerk/Treasurer Sara Olson read Scott’s recommendations aloud in regards to issuing a cease operation order being issued if Mr. Wunnicke is not adequately prepared for the May 31st Plan Commission meeting as well as indicated that she received notes from the Town’s Building inspector in regards to the contact he had with Cole Wunnicke. Cole Wunnicke had inquired if he could be allowed to continue to utilize the facility for a few weeks to allow the individual time to finish up with the current session of gymnastics prior to a cease order. The Plan Commission indicated that he would need to contact Scott Godfrey as the Township wouldn’t physically issue the cease order it would be issued by the county. The Planning Commission strongly recommended that he find a place to rent for the summer for wrestling as well as gymnastics. Greg Jewell had also indicated that one of Scott’s recommendations was to determine whether this type of operation is consistent with the town plan policies and if there may be the need to consider revisions to the plan to create consistency. The Planning Commission indicated that this would need to be discussed and possible modified if the individual was going to seek the rezoning in the future. The Planning Commission indicated that they wouldn’t be able to approve the existing application at this time as no plans have been completed or brought forth as well as no communication or compliance has successfully been made in regards to the previous requested information as indicated by the applicant. Steven Johnson made a motion to deny the rezoning application of 3.59 acres more or less from AB-1 to B-2 Highway Business located in the NE ¼ of the SE ¼ and the SE ¼ of the SE ¼ of Section 25, Town 6 North, Range 3 East at 5392 Section Line Road with the conditional use application for the purpose of: youth sporting activities. Robert Fitzsimons seconded the motion. Motion carried.

Clerk/Treasurer Sara Olson presented a copy of Smart Growth Survey that was previously sent to the property owner’s.
