October 9, 2006
The property is located at W8139 CTH Y, in the Town of Lamartine, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin. More particularly described as being:
S34 T15N R16E Plat of Village of 7 Mile Creek (V1141-463 & V1260-573)
And part of (approximately the East 100 feet) S34 T15N R16E Plat of Village of 7 Mile Creek W 110’ Lot 13 (V1141-463 & V1260-573) in the Town of Lamartine, Fond du Lac County.
This property is currently owned by Lori Suprenand. Scot & Cheryl Fischer would like to purchase this property to construct a new home. The sale of this property is pending the granting of this rezoning.
The Clerk made introductions.
Chairman Jim Reitzner called the meeting to order, noting that the hearing would be informal.
Plan Commission members also present at this meeting were: Chris Newton, Tom Kramer, Dean Birschbach and Roger Grade.
The Clerk read the letter of intent dated July 28, 2006 from Mr. & Mrs. Fischer on behalf of Lori Suprenand. The letter stated that the Fischer’s were considering the purchase of a house and adjacent empty lot from Mrs. Fischer’s sister, Lori Suprenand, with the intention of eventually tearing down the old green house and building a new home. They were requesting .500 acres of land be rezoned from business to residential as approximately .500 acres of the .940 acres of land they wanted to purchase were zoned business. The property the green house is situated on is zoned business and the empty lot is already zoned residential. The letter further stated that the purchasing of this property was pending on the granting of this rezoning and also three variances they were requesting.
The petitioner had no further comments or additions to their letter of intent.
The Clerk read a letter of opinion from Fond du Lac County Planner Sam Tobias. In an email dated August 16, 2006, Mr. Tobias recapped the property layout, acreage and zoning of each parcel of land involved in the variance requests and rezoning request. He stated that rezoning the entire house lot to residential makes sense too if all the variances were granted. He felt that the town had a lot to gain by working with the Suprenand’s on the variances and rezoning.
No letter of opinion was offered by, Town Building Permit Issuer, Pete Michels.
Chairman Reitzner asked for a report on the outcome of the Variances Hearing held, September 20, 2006.
The clerk reported that the Board of Appeals voted 5-0 to grant the three variances requested. Please see Fischer / Suprenand Variance Public Hearing minutes dated September 20, 2006, for further information regarding the variance requests on this property.
Discussion took place regarding this rezoning.
Chairman Reitzner asked for any comments regarding this rezoning from the audience. There were no comments.
Tom Kramer made a motion that the Plan Commission recommends approving this rezoning request to the Town Board. Chris Newton seconded the motion.

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 .500 acres of land from Business to Residential be approved.
