Leitzke-Conditional Use . Kopic did some research and the recommendation is usually 5 acres. If the horse is on less than an acre, we are setting a precedent by allowing one large animal in less than an acre. The Board decided that they would take it as it comes up and that the County usually accepts this.


Halverson/Leitzke: Conditional Use for horse on Coon Rock Road. Wright moves for a conditional use for one horse only based on one acre, removing front fence and fencing the back for the horse, clearing the trees and under brush with some trees for shelter and restoring the front by August, and contingent on the purchase of the property in April.
