Town of Lamartine Plan Commission

Public Hearing

Rezoning of Approx.1.45 Acres of Land from Agriculture to Residential

Petitioner: Art & Nancy Zietlow

May 8, 2006 6:30 PM

The Clerk made introductions.

Chairman Jim Reitzner called the meeting to order, noting that this hearing would be informal.

Also present at this meeting were: Chris Newton, Tom Kramer, Dean Birschbach and Roger Grade, along with petitioners Art and Nancy Zietlow and a few town residents.

The property is located near N6994 Giebel Road, Eldorado, in the Town of Lamartine.

Parcel I.D. T12-15-16-05-11-001-00. More particularly described as:

SW Ľ of the SW Ľ of Section 5, T. 15 N., R. 16 E., Town of Lamartine, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin

The Clerk read the letter of intent dated March 13, 2006 from Mr. & Mrs. Zietlow. The letter stated

The petitioner wanted this lot zoned residential and all the surveying and perk was done and registered at the courthouse. The letter also noted that there were already 16 homes on Giebel Road.

Chairman Reitzner asked the petitioners if they had any further information or comments they would like to make in addition to their letter of intent. Mr. Zietlow explained where the property was located and pointed out on a map where the lot was they were requesting to be rezoned.

No letters of opinion were offered by, Sam Tobias or Town Building Permit Issuer, Pete Michels.

Discussion took place regarding this rezoning. The soil rating on this property is poor and the Town of Lamartine Future Land Use Map shows that this property is designated as future residential property.

Tom Kramer made a motion that the Plan Commission recommends to the Town Board that this rezoning request be granted. Roger Grade seconded the motion. Chairman Reitzner explained that a YES vote would mean the recommendation to rezone should be granted. A NO vote would mean the recommendation to rezone would be to deny the rezoning request.

Five votes were cast with the following results: Tom Kramer—YES, Jim Reitzner—YES, Roger Grade—YES, Dean Birschbach—YES and Chris Newton—YES. The Plan Commission voted 5 to 0 to recommend to the town board that this rezoning request to rezone 1.45 acres of land from Agricultural to Residential be granted.

The following reasons were stated for granting this rezoning. From the Town of Lamartine Zoning Ordinance, Dated June 8, 1998, Pages 27 and 28.
