Chatfield approves parcel split


Fri, Aug 30th, 2013
Posted in Chatfield Government

By Karen Reisner

Kyle and Karla Bucknell requested a split of the Ferguson parcel on Hill Street at the Chatfield City Council’s August 26 meeting. The couple is looking to buy a 3.43 acre portion of the property that lies on the eastern side of Hill Street.

Mr. Bucknell explained they were both self employed and would like eventually to run a business from the property. He said they would level two and one half acres and would like to park his skid loader and dump truck on the property. Bucknell stated they plan to build a shop and house within three to five years. City clerk Joel Young noted it is zoned rural residential which allows for agricultural uses, adding it would be up to the Planning Commission to deal with whether or not a business would be allowed.

Bucknell was concerned about the maintenance of the street in the winter as Mrs. Bucknell runs a day care. He was interested in the possibility of developing the nearly 40 acres on the other side of the road. After some detail about the couple’s plans, city attorney Fred Suhler suggested they were getting off track. He said the city was not in the position to speculate about other issues down the road. He said the proposed parcel size of 3.43 acres meets the minimum requirement for lot sizes.

Young said he had been presented with someone’s plan to develop 40 or so acres a few days before speaking with Bucknell. He agreed the only question before this body is the split, noting we will do what we can to help them through other steps in the process. The split was approved.

Councilor Robert Pederson stated that it was great that people were interested in moving to Chatfield, Minn. and bringing in business.
