Questions on 30 acres and 3 building sites on the Weaver property.  Board explained our reasoning on the 3 building sites.  Due to density standards and the selling off of property without a building site. This particular property still retains 2 possibly 3 building sites.

 

Bouril:  6499 Cty K  rezone from A1 to AR1.  Purchased 1985.  Non-conforming home. .02 acres CRP in the middle of the property cut the property into two separate parcels. Suggested talking with Craig Hardy Highway Dept on the safety of the driveway to the road.  And D. Lucey will talk with Scott Godfrey, Iowa Cty Zoning.  This is a variance issue first.   Before Zoning change.  If the questions can be worked out the Board is favorable.

 

Judge:  Purchased more acreage on 8149 Sweeney Road. Lot 1 29.439 acres. Lot 2 is 11.33 acres. Lot acreage has changed.  Giving a conservancy easement on the land.  Changing new lot sizes.  Nelson moves to approve a land division on the old Patterson farm (referencing Nov 27, 2017 Plan Commission Minutes) already zoned as C-1. Schmidt second. Motion carried.  Paid $250

 

Beil:  Changing animal units from 8 to 16.  23.97 acres currently allowed 8 animals.  Long term they will be breeding and selling horses.  Wants to have 16 animal units.
