The Town of Taycheedah Plan Commission conducted a public hearing on Monday, February 13th, 2006, at 6:00 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall, for the purpose of making a recommendation to the Town Board on behalf of Windward Estates, Inc., request to rezone the 38.71 acres in Section 31 from A-T (Agricultural Transitional) to R-1 (Single-Family Residential with public sewer). The parcel abuts Golf Course Drive and the Hwy. 151 Bypass. Members present were Chairman John Wagner, Joe Thome, Bud Sabel, Mike Wirtz, Joan Simon, Leon Schneider, and Secretary Brenda Schneider. Bill Spieker was absent.
The Chairman called the public hearing to order at 6:05 p.m..
Eric Otte, J.E. Arthur & Associates, and Greg Barber represented Windward Estates, Inc. Mr. Otte gave the following presentation regarding the rezone request:
Windward Estates contains a total of 106 lot; 52 of them in the Town of Taycheedah, 54 in the City of Fond du Lac.
The land is surrounded on most sides by residential use.
The rezoning would not be adverse to neighboring lands.
The City has already rezoned the south half for residential use.
Both sides of the development will be sewered.
The pockets of wetlands, as delineated by the DNR, will become part of the lots. The conservation easement is meant to preserve the wetlands. The wetlands can not be disturbed. The type of soils has caused the wetlands classification. The restrictive covenants will address what can and cant be done with the wetlands.
The open spaces will be used for stormwater management.
Water detention ponds will be located in the northwest corner; which is Outlot 1 on the Town side. Water detention will also be located on Outlot 2 and 4 on the City side. Outlots 1, 2 and 4 total 13.5% of the land.
There will be two access points off of Golf Course Drive. The Dept. of Transportation will not allow direct access to Hwy. 151. The severe slopes abutting Golf Course Drive on the City side make an additional access off of Golf Course Drive very difficult.
The Towns Comprehensive Plan identifies the land for residential growth.
The Taycheedah Correction Institute borders the development on the south side.
The partners of Windward Estates are Greg Barber, Rick Schneider and Nick Miller.
Plan Commission discussion was as follows:
Member Joe Thome questioned if the Town needs more subdivisions. Mr. Otte responded that the land is currently used as a horse pasture and therefore, contributes little tax revenue to the Town.
Bud Sabel motioned to recommend the Town Board approve the rezone request submitted on behalf of Windward Estates, Inc., from A-T to R-1.
An attendee questioned if there will be any duplexes. Mr. Otte responded that the developers may be interested in a designated duplex area in the future. In that event, they will approach the Town for the appropriate zoning change.
The attendee also commented that the zoning change should not be approved until Golf Course Drive is repaired and widened. The Plan Commission responded that road repair is under the jurisdiction of the Town Board.
Joe Thome seconded Mr. Sabels motion. Motion carried (6-0-1 absent).
Mike Wirtz motioned to adjourn at 6:25 p.m., seconded by Bud Sabel. Motion carried (6-0-1 absent).
