Public Comment:
Mark Killam made mention that the culvert on Hillcrest Rd between Brown Rd and County Rd T has made the road very rough. It was discussed and that portion is rough due to the frost in the ground. Once that thaws the road will return to normal. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to stop that from happening.

CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT (CUP) REQUEST - Board Action on Recommendation from Town Plan Commission (PC) on the Binning Conditional Use Permit (CUP) request to build a “nonfarm residence on property zoned Moderate Farmland”.
This Conditional Use Permit is requested under sec. 7.4 (A)(1) “Nonfarm residences that qualify under Wis. Stat. Ch. 91.46 (1) (d) and defined in Section 3.2 built after January 1, 2014”. The Town Zoning Ordinance allows this to be done by CUP without the need to rezone. A Conditional Use Permit application was submitted by property owner(s) Dennis and Karen Binning. The property is described as follows: Parcel I. D’s. No. T12-15-16-15-04-001-00. Property is zoned Moderate Farmland Preservation. Approximately two (2) acres part of SE ¼-NE 1/4 , Section 15, Town 15 North, Range 16 East, Town of Lamartine, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, to create a non-farm residence with the 1:20 rule. Will require 1 lot CSM to be supplied.

The clerk reported to the town board earlier the same evening, the PC held a public hearing on the Binning CUP request. The Town PC voted 5—0 to recommend the town board grant the CUP to construct a non-farm residence by CUP without the need to rezone, to construct one single non-farm residence on this property. Randy moved that the town board accepts the recommendation of the PC and grants the Binning’s a conditional use permit to construct a “nonfarm residence on 2 acres of land zoned Moderate Farmland” without the need to rezone. Frank seconded the motion. The voice vote results were as follows: Frank—YES, Travis—YES and Randy—YES. The Town Board voted 3-0 to grant a conditional use permit as stated above to Dennis and Karen Binning. For more information regarding the CUP please see the Plan Commission Public Hearing Minutes dated March 8, 2021
