May 25, 2015

 

PRESENT:  Dave Lucey, John Wright, Bill Gauger, Cathy Acker, Rand Schott, Wayne Schutte, Cheryl Schmidt, Mark Hottmann

 

OTHERS: Don Bennett  Randy Hartung.

 

The meeting was called to order at 7:00 pm.  Roll call was taken.  Anding and Nelson not present. Schutte  moved to approve the minutes of the March 30 meeting.  No meeting in April.  Schmidt seconded.  Minutes approved.

 

Bennett:  No longer a corporate office or fertilizer business so the
Hartungs would like to re-zone to A-1 and will tear down the old fertilizer building.  They are only conducting farm business at this point.  Re-zone 2.41 acres from B-4 to A-1.  Schmidt moves to approve 2.41A re-zone from B-4 to A-1. Schutte seconded. Motion approved.  Paid $250.

 

Discussion on how to update the Comprehensive Plan.  Each member take a section, look it over and see if it needs to be changed.  A lot of the plan is not really pertinent to our comprehensive plan.  Section H is the most important for our township to update at this time. Hottmann suggested that the Plan Commission should read over Section H and at the next meeting we will discuss changes or updates. Lots of discussion on the number or animals per acre and what type of animals. Would like to change that no animals before 2 acres.    Cathy will be sending Section H by email for each member to print out if needed.  Discussion and changes will take place at the next Plan Commission Meeting June 29, 2015.

 

Schutte moved to adjourn.  Schott seconded.  Meeting adjourned. 

 

Next meeting June 29th, 2015.
