The Plan Commission of the Town of Taycheedah conducted a public hearing on Monday, January 8th, 2007, at 6:00 p.m., at the Town Hall for the purpose of making a recommendation to the Town Board regarding the Final Plat of the Lakeview Road subdivision. Members present were Chairman John Wagner, Mike Wirtz, Leon Schneider, Joe Thome, Bill Spieker and Secretary Brenda Schneider. Members Bud Sabel and Joan Simon were absent.
Chairman Wagner called the public hearing to order at 6:05 p.m..
Ron Cunzenheim, representing Jim Roberts, appeared before the Plan Commission. His presentation and responses to comments and questions presented during the public hearing were as follows:
• There have been no substantial changes from the Preliminary Plat.
• The existing wetland was not recognized on the Preliminary Plat.
• Lot 25 was increased to include the entire wetland area.
• Maplewood Lane has been shifted due to the location of the wetland area.
• The development has 50 buildable lots; a slight decrease from the Preliminary Plat.
• All other approvals have been secured; with the exception of the Notice of Intent for the grading and erosion control from the DNR.
• An easement to the north for sewer construction has been secured from Jim Emerich.
• The grading and sewer contractors are ready to begin work.
Late last summer, the Town Board directed notice to Jim Roberts to destroy the noxious weeds on the property. Roberts contacted Brenda Schneider, Town Clerk, to notify her that they intended to start the project within 10 days. The weeds were never cut and the project is yet to start. Ron Cunzenheim will contact the Mr. Roberts and suggest he have the weeds disced into the ground.
An attendee believes the lots are too small at approximately one-half acre each. The Plat meets the minimum lot size for a sewered development.
She was concerned about the additional need for services; particularly snow removal. She expressed dissatisfaction with the snow removal service this winter.
A southerly land neighbor questioned the 25 ft. pedestrian trail surrounding the development. Mr. Cunzenheim explained that the trail will be co-owned by the 50 lot owners. The Restrictive Covenants establish a Control Committee that will be responsible to maintain the fence line, trail and other natural areas. The project will be seeded and maintained. The Covenants also authorize the Town Board to maintain the areas, if neglected by the Committee/owners, and to charge the Committee/owners for that maintenance.
Bill Spieker motioned to recommend the Town Board approve the Final Plat of the Lakeview Road subdivision as presented. An attendee questioned the source of water and the use of shared wells. Mr. Cunzenheim didn’t know Mr. Roberts’ intent as far as shared wells. The motion was seconded by Joe Thome. Motion carried (5-0-2 absent).
Mike Wirtz motioned to adjourn at 6:38 p.m., seconded by Leon Schneider. Motion carried (5-0-2 absent).
