Zoning plan to enter next phase


Fri, Oct 19th, 2001

By Mike McGrathAt last Tuesday’s meeting, the County Board carefully reviewed a schedule for completing the process of making changes to the county zoning ordinance.

The schedule was presented by the Zoning Administrator, Norm Craig, and details out a series of meetings that will take place throughout the winter months, and will result in the creation of four new zoning districts in the rural areas of the county.

The process began over a year ago when the county planning commission created a citizen advisory committee to study the non-farm home development issue in the agriculture district. That committee crafted a recommendation for creating three new ag districts, each with a different allowable housing density, and a scenic district to protect the county’s unique river and bluff areas.

With a general outline for the districts in place, and a very general map indicating the location of the districts having been drawn, the planning commission will now take the process to the townships and cities for input.

The schedule calls for representatives from the townships and cities to attend four meetings between November 7 and November 15 to gather information and maps on the proposals. Each meeting will serve a different quadrant of the county to facilitate a smoother process.

While the schedule showed that the townships would have until January 15, 2002 to mark up the maps and return them, Commissioner Duane Bakke announced that he preferred to move up the date to December 15, 2001 so that the entire process, which would include more public hearings and planning commission discussions, could be completed in time for the spring construction season in April.

To this, Commissioners Harry Root and Randy Dahl responded that there needs to be sufficient time between the date the information is presented to the townships and the date the marked up maps must be returned.

"I don’t want to rush through this without the townships input," replied Root. "I want to see a month in between."

Commissioner Dahl concurred with Root, but Bakke responded that the townships have already been following the process and shouldn’t need too much time.

"They have seen the maps for two years," replied Bakke.

When the final details of the schedule were worked out, the deadline .....
