The meeting was called to order at 7:00 pm. Roll call was taken. All present except Hottmann.
Schutte moved to approve the minutes of the February 24, 2014 meeting, Schmidt seconded. Minutes approved.
Kirch: Fortier Road on S curve. Sectioning it off, putting a steel building on a part of it. 5.5 acres want to split part of it up into 2 (1 acre lots). What are they zoned? Where the 5 acres came from. There is an existing house on the 5 acres so it already has a building site. No other building sites for living allowed.
Pitman: Mill Creek Cheese: Iowa Cty Commissioner Hardy talked with Halverson about building a driveway that goes into HH past Whites. West side of HH. Driveway viewing requested Wednesday April 2, 5:30 pm. Driveway permit, land division, re-zoning, building permit. Entitled to two more building sites. 108 acres with one house at this time. Schuette moved to approve a driveway permit contingent on viewing, and county approval. Schmidt seconded. Motion approved.
Chad White: Not on agenda. Process of buying a lot in Helena. Lots laid out in 2003 by Gaylord Mickelson. Lot next to the old school. Albany St. never developed. There is a 20 ft alley coming off School St. Is the 20 ft alley sufficient to put a driveway on? We need county approval if alley is still there. If he couldn’t use the alley for a driveway as a last resort can he come down Albany Street? Is going to contact the county for clarification and then return to next months meeting.
Lucey: Knight Hollow Road: Aerial view of the two houses on Lucey Farm. 116 acres. Wants to split it. 1.1 acres with older (119 years old) house. Other house 85 years old. Lucey will survey it and bring it back to the plan commission. Will need to re-zone, land division.
