The meeting was called to order at 7:00 pm.  Roll call was taken. Nelson absent.  Anding moved to approve the minutes of the September 29, 2014 meeting, Schmidt seconded.  Minutes approved.

 

Askevold-Re-zoning in front of tavern was at one point an easement from the Lady Bird Johnson era when they did this in the mid-60s for beautification purposes.  This is just information to let us know and a copy will be kept for our records.  No further action taken by the plan commission. 

 

Giffey:  Resolution for transmission lines.  American Transmission Company (ATC) wants to expand the lines.  Consider passing a resolution asking for informational studies.  ATC would have to make a significant investment in a study if this resolution were passed.  So far it has passed in the townships of Wyoming, Eden, Brigham, Mineral Point.  Will put Rob Danielson on agenda for more information at the Nov 24 meeting. 

 

Peterson:  Driveway permit.  Cty Hwy HH.  Will get the driveway permit at the same time as the building permit. He will be putting a third of the driveway in this fall. County already gave him the specs for slope and angle. Will be back in for a driveway and building permit in the spring.  No other action taken at this time. 

 

Open Discussion:  We will be calling driveways access roads instead of field roads when there is no building. 

 

Schott motioned to adjourn, Anding seconded.  Motion carried.

 

Next meeting will be November 24, 2014.
