Commissioners approve Barr subdivision

Discuss addition to courtsBy Mike McGrathOn a motion by Commissioner Randy Dahl, the Fillmore County Board approved the preliminary plat for the Barr subdivision in Fillmore Township.

The approval came with six conditions, most of which were worked out by the commissioners at last Fridays meeting.

The original Barr preliminary plat contained five lots on the forty-acre tract that is located on County Route 8. However, the plat approved at last Fridays special board meeting had been reduced to four lots because of the topographical and geologic characteristics of the site.

Since the last meeting of the board and the subdivision owners on November 27, further investigative work on the site had been performed by the county engineer and the Barrs surveyor, Greg Schwartz. As a result of those investigations it was determined that one of the original lots was unsuitable for development, and that several of the remaining four lots would require specially-designed sewer systems and shared driveways.

During the discussions, the commissioners crafted six conditions that would be placed on the preliminary plat:

The subdivision may only have four lots.

All septic systems must be installed by a certified contractor.

Lots 3 and 4 must have a shared driveway access.

The county engineer must approve all access driveway locations prior to the final plat approval.

All homes constructed must be permanent, a minimum of 20 feet wide, and have basements.

All applicants for building permits must sign the countys agriculture district agreement, which basically means that new homeowners cannot complain about smell, noise and other agricultural activities.

The condition requiring the new homes to have basements was proposed by Commissioner Marc Prestby in response to concerns from neighboring property owners that the Barrs might build recreational cabins. Commissioners Duane Bakke and Randy Dahl were opposed to the basement requirement, and questioned whether the county could legally impose such a condition.

To this, Commissioner Prestby responded that Rebecca Barr had publicly stated at the November 27 meeting that all the homes would have basements.



She said the homes would have basements, so lets make it a condition, said Prestby.

However, Ms. Barr explained that she had actually said the homes would have foundations, not nece .....
