Lanesboro places moratorium on subdivision developmentBy John TorgrimsonMonday, February 12, 2001

The Lanesboro City Council, at its Monday, February 5 meeting, unanimously approved placing a moratorium on any subdivision development within a two mile radius of the city. The moratorium, which was recommended by the Planning & Zoning Committee, will go into effect immediately and stay in place until the Planning Commission can complete a comprehensive plan on subdivisions, a period not to exceed one year.

This decision comes on the heels of an application by Jesse Buggs of St. Paul to build a subdivision in Section 30 of Holt Township. The moratorium will not affect the Buggs three-lot development, which falls under the present Lanesboro subdivision ordinance. Buggs is already working with the city on this project.

It is the city councils intent to control development around the city and specifically plan out how the city should develop. The city recently extended sewer to the Zenith Street development and is trying to encourage growth in that area.

The council intends to hold public hearings on the subdivision ordinance in the future and will invite adjoining township officials to give comment.

Part of the confusion seems to be over the fact that some private roads have become public roads by being petitioned into the city or through annexation. In other cases, some roads and driveways are being plowed because of special circumstances where the city has a binding agreement with a landowner.

Scott Strom, and other residents who live on a road adjoining Zenith Street, were before the council to seek clarification on this matter. "I dont think that we are being treated fairly," Strom told the council, noting that it appears to him that some private roads are being plowed and others are not.

Looking at a color coded map that indicated which streets were being plowed, the council tried to sort out some of the confusion.

"What a mess. Were not sure what is a public street here," Council member Peggy Hanson said. "But we can find that out. If it is a public street, then we can plow. If it is not, then people can come forward and look into petitioning the city."

"We dont want to treat anyone unfairly, but we do need to get this clarif .....
