The property is located at W8250 Lincoln Road, in the Town of Lamartine, Fond du Lac County, more particularly described as:

Present at this hearing were Board of Appeals (BOA) members, Greg Michels, Chairman; Mike Pittler, J. Peter Braun, Bud Guenther, Roger Searl and petitioners Victor and Susan Valentino.
With all notices having been properly posted and published Chairman Michels called the meeting to order. He explained that this meeting would be informal and everyone wishing to speak would be heard.
The letter of intent was read aloud. The letter dated July 1, 2009 requested a variance in the set back from the minimum allowed by the town of 100-feet to the center of the road to 50-feet from the center of the road, to construct a cold storage building. The letter further stated that the back half of the property is wetlands and the property is zoned commercial.
Chairman Michels asked the petitioner if there were any additional comments to add to the letter of intent. There were no additional comments.
Chairman Michels explained the BOA sends a letter to Fond du Lac County Planner, Sam Tobias and the Town Building Permit Issuer, Pete Michels asking for an opinion on the variance request. There were no opinions offered from either.
Victor explained that he wanted to construct a cold storage building to store extra parts, the tractor, etc. Plastic heating pipes would be installed but there would be no heat in the building at this time. The new building would be 60-feet by 70-feet and 16-feet high.
The location of the building on the property was shown on a drawing prepared by the petitioner. The old building will be taken down as soon as the new building is constructed. The average setback in this area of the township is 53-feet from the center of the road. The wetland delineation line behind the current buildings is regulated by the DNR. The building will be constructed of wood with metal outside.
