RE:          Agenda Item 2 – Certified Survey Map – Olson – 008-0178 & 008-0178-01

Overview

The applicant is proposing a two lot Certified Survey Map (CSM) for land South of County Road BB and West of Irish Road (008-0178 & 008-0178-01).  The area is currently zoned A-2 (General Farming).  Lot 1 is 17.136-acres and Lot 2 is 19.309-acres.  Two drainage ways are indicated on the survey; however neither is designated as navigable waterways. 

 

The survey also indicates an officially mapped road on the western edge of Lot 1.  The portion of land within the officially mapped right-of-way shall be dedicated to the public for roadway purposes.  Staff feels that the width, as shown at 66-feet, is insufficient for the area and future land uses and shall be shown at 80-feet with 40-feet on either side of the current property line.

Findings of Fact

·         Staff finds that this CSM does not comply with the Town of Menasha’s Chapter 6 Subdivision Control/Planned Unit Development Ordinance.

o        Officially mapped roadway dedication.

o        All existing buildings shall be indicated on the survey.

·         Staff finds that this CSM complies with the Town of Menasha’s Chapter 30 Comprehensive Plan and Winnebago County Town/County Zoning Ordinance.

Staff Recommendation                            

Staff recommends approval of this certified survey map with the condition that the officially mapped roadway along the western edge of proposed Lot 1 be dedicated to the Town for roadway purposes as a 40-foot right-of-way.
