Approval of Minutes – September 18, 2002

 

Motion by Commissioner Pelton seconded by Commissioner Van Dyke, to approve the minutes of the Planning Commission meeting on September 18, 2002 as submitted. Motion carried unanimously.

 

 

1.  Certified Survey Map – Omni Associates, Inc. – Gavin Road -  (008-0545)

 

            Director Dearborn explained that the CSM was creating three new lots. The

            largest lot, Lot 2, would most likely be subdivided at some future date for a

            single-family development. Furthermore, Director Dearborn described the

            mapped right-of-way for the extension of Mary Lane into the new Lot 2.

 

            Motion by Commissioner Pelton, seconded by Commissioner Lewis, to approve

            the CSM as submitted. Motion carried unanimously.

 

2.  Certified Survey Map – McMahon Associates, Inc. – 1451 McMahon Drive - (008-5221, 008-0240-03-06, 008-0240-03-01)

 

Director Dearborn stated that the CSM would combine a lot and an outlot into one newly created lot. The CSM would then allow the property owner to just have one tax bill.

 

Chairperson Bellmer clarified the location of the pipeline easement on the new lot.

 

Motion by Commissioner Lewis, seconded by Commissioner Van Dyke, to approve the CSM as submitted. Motion carried unanimously.

 

3.  Variance – Garth Wegner – 1681 Brighton Beach Rd. - (008-0934-01)

 

Director Dearborn reported to the Commission that the applicant requested a variance to construct a garage that would not meet the minimum street setback for a garage lot. Director Dearborn explained that the garage lot has been in existence but only recently has the County officially recognized it as a separate parcel. Also, a portion of an existing garage would be located on the garage lot but it would be removed.

 

Director Dearborn explained that there was an exceptional circumstance since one could not build any size garage that would meet the minimum street setback requirement of the garage lot district. This was the case since the garage lot was a smaller sized lot. Therefore, a variance would be justified for this proposal.

 

Motion by Commissioner Jochman, seconded by Chairperson Bellmer, to approve the Variance as submitted. Motion carried unanimously.

 

 

 

OLD ITEMS OF BUSINESS

 

 

OTHER BUSINESS

 

1.  Update on meeting with Town of Clayton – potential remapping of W. American Dr.

 

Director Dearborn briefly discussed how a developer was requesting a remapping of W. American Drive in the Town of Menasha in order to maximize the amount of developable land for a potential single-family subdivision. The Town of Clayton was open to the idea of exploring a potential new route for W. American Drive within their municipality. The Town of Clayton though has not provided any definite decision yet on the issue. An interesting point from the Town of Clayton meeting was that W. American Dr. has not been officially mapped yet within their jurisdiction.
