Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag

The September 28, 2010, special meeting was called to order by Mayor Gordon Johnson at 7:00 p.m. Council members present: Dennis Overland, Roger Ekern, Dale Schwanke. Absent: Elizabeth Atkinson. Zoning Board members present: Administrator Howard Otis, Darrell Erickson, Bruce Hovland, Jim Wasnalas, Glen Kopperud. Also present: Clerk Joyce Iverson, SEMDC/Southeast Consultants.

Mayor Johnson welcomed everyone in attendance, explained the formation of a special committee of two city council members and two zoning board members to address future planning, and then turned the meeting over to Glen Kopperud, Zoning Board and special Planning Committee member, who facilitated the meeting. The AGENDA listed the process and the questions What? Why? How? and When to guide the discussion.

The PURPOSE of the meeting was to have a discussion with owners of property in the moratorium area described as: "All of sections 15 and 16, the West half of the Southwest quarter of section 14, the Northwest quarter of the Northwest quarter of Section 23 and the North half of sections 21 and 22 located north of the Root River, in the City of Rushford Village, Fillmore County, State of Minnesota."

CITIZENS/GUESTS: Peggy Rue, Donald Woxland, Marvin Bestul, Brian Krambeer, Virginia and Fred Arnold, Valerie Howe, Robert M. Brand, Marie Luhmann, Mary Gudmundson, Paul Sorum, Harold Naber, Jim Norstad.

Kopperud named the special Planning Committee members: Council members Dale Schwanke and Roger Ekern, Zoning Board members Howard Otis and Glen Kopperud, City Clerk Joyce Iverson. He then pointed out the moratorium area as identified on a 36" x 42" map with proposed zoning that included Commercial-Industrial, Agriculture-Residential, and Agriculture. Looking at the possibility of preserving land for future development, he said if there is no room for development, developers will pass us by. The moratorium area has two state highways for access to Commercial-Industrial and also is convenient for housing. Kopperud said there are still five to six homesteads that were built in the 1800's and nothing may change for another 50 to 100 years. The challenge is how to rezone to preserve land for development without hurting the people here and keep it productive for the people here now.

Main issues identified in the discussion were listed on a flip chart: - Effect on Existing Businesses / Residences; - What it means f .....
