a. Board Discussion/Decision—Building request/does not meet access ordinance vision corner setbacks.—Visionaire sold to Lend Properties and they want to move 2 buildings to the corner of Forest Ave and Fisher Rd. Fond du Lac County said the State has revised their setback requirements and it is now different from the Town Ordinance. If Visionaire follows the Town Ordinance there will be vision concerns at that corner. If they follow the States requirements there will be no concern. They would like to move those buildings in fall after the crops are off the fields. Travis advised that he would like to review and verify the County and State regulations before any decisions are made. Frank and Randy agreed.
