January 19, 2009 Plan Commission Animal Siting Ordinance Amendments Meeting
Town of Lamartine
Plan Commission Meeting
RE: ANIMAL SITING ORDINANCE (ACTCP 51)
January 19, 2009 at 7:00 PM
Lamartine Municipal Building Meeting Room (LMBMR)
With all notices having been properly posted, Jim Reitzner, Plan Commission Chairman called the meeting to order. Other Plan Commission (PC) members present at this meeting were Tom Kramer, Chris Newton, Roger Grade and Dean Birschbach. Alternate PC members Glenn Becker and Carol Kinyon were present in the audience.
Jim explained that the purpose of this meeting was to discuss the progress of the Animal Siting (ATCP 51) Zoning Ordinance Amendments. He asked Eric Fowle, Director of East Central WI Regional Plan Commission (ECWRPC) to summarize what has happened in the past with this ordinance.
Eric explained that while drafting this ordinance we needed to comply with the state regulations for animal siting. DATCP did not have a problem with the tiers of animal unit districts but it was found out later that the ordinance must also be consistent with the County Farmland Preservation Plan. An ordinance was drafted and a public hearing was held where the locals were in favor of the ordinance and the outsiders were against it. On October 21, 2008 an informal meeting was held with town officials, DATCP, East Central and Martensen & Eisele (M&E) staff to review and discuss the current draft ATCP 51 zoning ordinance amendments and issues related to their approval. The discussion resulted in an outline of steps to take to finalize this project. Eric will pursue this approach unless other information or opinions are offered to modify the approach. Please see Attachment “A” Memorandum from ECWRPC dated October 23, 2008 with map; and a Memorandum from ECWRPC dated December 10, 2008 with the Town of Lamartine DRAFT Zoning Ordinance Amendments for Livestock Siting (ATCP 51) REVISED – December 9, 2008 for further details.
Discussion took place regarding the proposed changes to the ordinance and map.
Warren Utecht, M & E explained that generally the land use plan would be completed and then the zoning ordinance amendments would be addressed. It seems that we are doing this in reverse order.
More discussion took place as to the order these items should be completed. The Town PC and Board agreed that it made more sense to complete the Towns’ comprehensive plan first. Then address the animal siting ordinance amendments and map.
Eric will continue to fine tune the map, and deal with the concerns addressed at this meeting. The Town will work with the County to amend the Farmland Preservation Plan and talk to the Town Attorney regarding what the Town should do to protect from someone coming in and putting in a large animal unit facility during this interim.
The Town will move forward with M&E to complete the Land Use Plan and then readdress the animal siting zoning amendments. It is important that the Town Land Use/Comprehensive Plan, the County Farmland Preservation Plan and State regulations are all consistent.
With no further business to discuss, a motion was made by Tom Kramer and seconded by Roger Grade to adjourn the meeting. Motion carried 5-0. Meeting adjourned at 8:25 Pm.
