CITIZEN CONCERNS:

Larry Conger inquired as to when the stop sign would be put up on the corner of Treptow and Fisher Road. Ed will remind Rich to get this sign up.

REZONING DECISIONS:

Haney Rezoning Request to rezone 11.5 acres of land from Agricultural to Residential—Ed asked for the recommendation from the Plan Commission. Chairman Jim Reitzner stated that the Plan Commission had voted 3-2 to recommend to the Town Board that this rezoning request be approved.

Ed stated that he needed to clarify that Fenner Road is a town road driveway and the town ordinance allows one more house to be off this road. If another house goes in they need an easement from the first house owner in case the road would ever go back to the original owner. He also noted that Fenner Road is a town road but is classified as a driveway on all road reports. Fenner Road would have to be brought up to town road standards by the developer with a cul-de-sac at the end of the road. A lengthy discussion took place regarding this rezoning. Mike made a motion to deny the request to rezone 11.5 acres of land from Agricultural to Residential. Ed noted that a YES vote would mean the rezoning would be denied and a NO vote would mean the rezoning would be granted.

Three ballot votes were cast as follows: Ed—YES, Mike—NO, Mike interrupted stating that he had voted wrong. Frank—YES. Mike made a motion re-voted on this same motion. Frank seconded the motion to revote. Motion carried 3-0. Ed explained again that a YES vote would mean the rezoning would be denied and a NO vote would mean the rezoning would be granted.

Let the record show that three paper ballots were cast with the following results:

Ed—YES, Mike—YES & Frank—NO. The Town Board voted to deny the Haney rezoning request to rezone 11.5 acres of land from Agricultural to Residential. The following reasons for denying this rezoning were cited:

8. The productivity of the agricultural lands involved.
* The soil is LVB 75% and LMA 77%

Woodley Rezoning Request to rezone approximately 4.3 acres of land from Agricultural to Residential—Ed asked Plan Commission Chairman Jim Reitzner if the Plan Commission had a recommendation for the Town Board on this rezoning. Jim stated that the Plan Commission voted 3-2 to recommend to the Town Board that this rezoning request be denied. Discussion took place regarding this rezoning. Mike made a motion to rezone up to 1.9 acres of land to residential, with the remaining acreage remaining agricultural. Frank seconded the motion. Ed then called for a vote stating that a YES vote would mean the rezoning is approved and a NO vote would mean the rezoning would be denied. Let the record show that three paper ballot votes were cast with the following results: Ed—NO, Mike—YES, Frank—YES. The Town Board voted to approve the rezoning as stated in the above motion. The following reasons were given for granting this rezoning.
