ERIC/JACQUELINE HOWLETT#012-1015-1612-000- Eric was present and explained he would like to increase his lot line to a 5 acre parcel. Pat explained that when Eric receives his paperwork he should forward a copy to the Plan Commission for verification and then it will be turned into the town board for final approval. It was explained that Eric is coming before the Plan Commission as more of an FYI for the town because he owns both properties. Pat explained that Eric should meet the requirements found on page 42 of the Zoning book when presenting to Dodge County.
ZONING CHANGES/AMENDMENTS – Tabled to next month.
DALE/MARY KREUZIGER 012-1015-1914-000 – Mary provided a map showing that parcel #1914-002 has a driveway. #1914-001 also has a driveway. Mary is requesting a driveway on #1914-000. Currently they drive across parcels owned by them to get to parcel #1914-000. #1914-000 currently does not have a driveway. Chris explained that the drive was something that should have been taken care of at the time of the sale of the parcel. The zoning administrator did not require at the time of sale and the plan commission requested that follow through on the zoning administrator prior to sales should be done.
Discussion was held about the speed limit on Welsh Road. Currently Welsh road does not have a posted speed limit. The plan commission discussed proposing the speed limit to be posted at 45mph. Pat/Mike made recommendation to approve driveway request with the speed limit to change on Welsh road from Hwy 60 to Hwy J from un-posted 65 mph to a posted 45 mph to meet the minimum requirements of zoning in Town of Clyman per 8.1(1)c. Motion carried. Pat explained that at a town board meeting he liked the idea of not paving roads in the Town of Clyman because it could help slow down the speeders down.
SUSAN & JOANNE PIPER/TERRY & THERESE MERCER – Terry & Therese Mercer were present and explained that he currently owns #012-1015-0444-005 and will be purchasing approx. 3 acres from #0444-000. Pat explained that this would require a new CSM that Dodge County will be handling. He explained that once the parcel is resurveyed a copy should be sent to the town for filing.
CITIZEN COMMENTS - Steve Kaine was present and explained that he would like to split off the building from land on the old Bob Schultz property. Pat explained that on page 32 it explains the requirements for sectioning off land in the Town of Clyman per the zoning requirements. Steve explained that he is looking at approx. 3 acres to split off. Pat explained that set back requirements are 10ft off the side of building and 30ft off major highways. Chris will provide an application to Steve and once completed he will submit to clerk to be on the agenda.
Mike as a citizen asked about a lot of 40 acres already being owned by a citizen and if that citizen purchases another lot of 10 acres does it create a parent track. Pat explained on page 32 10-15 non-farm lot have one land split. The 40 acre would have 3 splits. Pat explained that the parent track is defined as what existed prior to zoning. Pat explained that this would not make a parent track in this situation. The citizen will keep the development rights already established but not gain any additional rights by combining these properties.
