Cook:  needs a re-zone or a conditional use permit for non-conforming property at 5848 Blue Ridge Rd Would like a re-zone from A-1 non-conforming to AR-1.  Schutte moves to re-zone 2 acres from A-1 to AR-1 with the understanding that the existing structure is removed before a building permit is issued.

Store mostly cheese and semi loading and parking.  Building on the south end out of scenic easement.  New driveway on Coon Rock.  Parking area north of the building.  Zoned B2 but needs to be re-zoned to B3 because it is a warehouse.  Building will be 100 x 200, and then offices.   Nelson moves to rezone all 3 lots to B3 with conditional uses: cold storage warehouse, company offices, motor freight transportation company, and reconfiguration of lot lines.  Schott seconded.  Motion carried. paid $500.

 

Land Density maps were viewed.  Discussion on less than 40 acre non-conforming parcels created by the county.  We need to research the small acre lots. We should check out the Town of Dodgeville plans for this issue.  November meeting should include the county and a surveyor, probably John Halverson to talk about changing parcel sizes.
