MINUTES

The Town of Taycheedah Comprehensive Planning Committee met on Thursday, April 9th, 2009, at 6:30 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall. Members present at the meeting were: Ed Braun, Jerry Guelig, Tim Krawczyk, Neal Nett, Rebecca Ries, Brenda Schneider, Joanne Thome, Joe Thome and Mike Wirtz. Also present were 10 residents.

1. Call to Order. Chairman Ed Braun called the meeting to order at 6:32 pm.

2. Approval of Minutes. Mike Wirtz motioned to approve the minutes of the 3/19/09 Committee meeting as presented, and acknowledge that the action taken by the Town Board during their special meeting was to defer the draft Plan back to the Comprehensive Planning Committee for review of all written and oral testimony received prior to the conclusion of the public hearing and to recommend revisions to the draft, if any, in response to the testimony, seconded by Neal Nett. Motion carried (9-0).

3. Review written and oral testimony received prior to the conclusion of the March 19th, 2009 public hearing and compile recommended amendments to the draft Comprehensive Plan.

Oral testimony:

Ron Davis, N7827 Hwy. 151: A proposed bike trail cuts diagonally from Hwy. 151/Peebles to St. Peter. The trail should be designated either along CTH WH or Hwy. 151; not through the fields. Also, the Future Land Use map designates the Fife property, located between Bud’s Soils and Spies painting, as Proposed Rural Residential. He does not agree with putting houses between two commercial properties. Tim Krawczyk motioned to shift the bike trail designation, on all applicable maps, to overlay the existing trail system along CTH WH; the proposed trail along USH 151; and along Winnebago Drive, seconded by Joe Thome. Motion carried (9-0). Regarding the future use of the Fife property, the Committee deemed no action would be taken due to the concern that additional commercial development on the Fife property could potentially create conflicts with the existing and future residential properties surrounding it.

John Welsch, N7278 CTH UU: Jeff Sanders mentioned that the Plan is broad-brush guidelines but later said that the existing ordinances will need to be made consistent with the Plan. Mr. Welsch asked for clarification as to the future use of the Plan and the need to modify current ordinances. It was noted that the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Ordinance will need to be reviewed and possibly amended to be consistent with the Plan. The public will be given an opportunity to comment on any ordinance amendments. It was further noted that the Plan can be revised at any time. Committee deemed no action would be taken due to the fact that the matter relates to the Zoning Ordinance.



Comprehensive Planning Committee
April 9th, 2009

Pat Mand, N7995 Church Road: His land zoned commercial is identified as transitional residential on the Future Land Use Map. It was noted that the Future Land Use designations do not impact the current zoning of property. Committee deemed no action would be taken due to the fact that the matter relates to the Zoning Ordinance.

Angie Prull, N9254 Hwy. 151: She is concerned about citizen awareness of the governmental process and that ultimately the Town Board will make the final decisions. It was noted that Wis. Stats. 66.1001 will require the Town Officials at every level make decisions that are consistent with the Plan. Committee deemed no action would be taken due to the fact that her concern relates to duties of the Town Board.

Ron Spies, N8003 Hwy. 151: Reiterated Ron Davis’ concerns about the future use of the Fife property. He also does not agree with putting residential property in an area surrounded by commercial properties. His concern has been addressed. The Committee deemed no further action was necessary.

Frank Alaniz, W4115 Kiekhaefer Parkway: He questioned that if the Plan is truly what the community wants, how Attorney John St. Peter can submit a letter at a previous meeting stating that a zoning change would not set precedence. It was noted that the Town Board asked the attorney for guidance on a current rezone request and that the correspondence was not in reference to the proposed Plan. It was also noted that the attorney may have to revise his opinion on the matter after the draft Plan is adopted. Committee deemed no action was necessary.

Linda Aliota Ramirez, N8424 CTH QQ: She would like the Board to reconsider the area behind their home that is designated a Proposed Single-Family Residential. She and her husband are in the process of restoring the 150 year old home. She would like to see the area changed to recreation or open space so that there is a buffer created around their property to protect it as a historic home. Neal Nett motioned to not act on the request due to Committee consensus that residential would be consistent with the surrounding area, seconded by Rebecca Ries. Motion carried (9-0).

Paul Seibel, N7446 Winnebago Drive: He inquired if the Plan addresses the reconstruction of Winnebago Drive. It was noted that the project will not be discussed at this time. Committee deemed no action was necessary.

Richard Cusick, N7824 Sandy Beach Road: He asked for the parameters of Rural Residential. It was noted that the lot size will be determined when the Zoning Ordinance is amended to be consistent with the Plan. He added that there are areas between Sandy Beach Road, Winnebago Drive, Hwy. 151 and Brookhaven Beach Road that are unsuitable for housing due to wetlands and soils not able to support sanitary systems. There may also be unsuitable areas between Brookhaven Beach Road and Deadwood

Point Road. He suggests designating the areas for wild-area, conservancy or recreation. The areas in question would need to be served by municipal sewer or the lots would need to be at least 5 acres; which should allow acceptable locations for on-site wastewater systems. The Committee deemed no action was necessary.

Rebecca Ries, W2749 Golf Course Drive: As a Comprehensive Planning Committee member, she noted that there are formatting changes that will need to be made without another public hearing and that changes directed in Committee meeting minutes have not been incorporated. Joanne Thome motioned to accept Rebecca Ries’ summary of changes and corrections, seconded by Neal Nett. Neal Nett moved to amend the motion to withdraw the Page 6-6, Park and Recreation Facilities, 2nd paragraph, 12th line, “By 2025…” should be “By 2028…”, and Page 9-10, Extraterritorial Plat Review, 2nd paragraph should be deleted, amendment seconded by Joanne Thome. Amendment carried (9-0). Motion carried (9-0).

The first note is that the date on the web copy is different (1/14/2009) but, in general, it appears that the two versions are the same. The Majority Opinion Map in the web version is a map for the City of Sheboygan and not the map provided at our meeting.

Page 4-1 Existing Housing Supply, 4th line. Unnecessary/duplicated “1990-2000”.

Page 4-10 Page number missing.

Page 5-4 Third line from top. Remove “See insert at top of the following page for railroads”.

Page 5-4 Last paragraph. Font size change for no apparent reason. These mistakes probably have no impact on the Plan (although italics can imply emphasis) but are simply an example of the sloppy work Omnni has utilized throughout this process. This occurs several times throughout the Plan. (Pgs 5-18, 6-2, 6-19, 7-19, 7-25, 7-31)

Page 5-15 Connectivity, 1st paragraph, 4th line missing a “the” before Town.

Page 6-5 Electricity And Natural Gas, 3rd paragraph, 3rd line, “WEC’s headquarters are…”.

Page 6-6 Blue Sky Green Field is indented with a “1” implying a list of other items.

Page 6-7 Communication Facilities. A list of facilities is provided starting with Local and Long Distance Telephone Service. The list starts with a “2” rather than a “1”.

Page 6-7 Number 4, “With respect to Internet access…..” should be eliminated.

Page 6-9 Library, 2nd paragraph, 4th line, video is listed twice.

Page 6-10 School Districts, number 1 Fond du Lac School Districts, last line, change “Table 17” to “Table 20”.

Page 6-12 Fire Protection, 2nd paragraph, last line, should be …”Calumet Volunteer Fire Department”.

Page 6-13 First Responders, last line, should be “…assistance to the…”

Page 6-17 Local Park Facilities, 2nd paragraph/sentence has an unnecessary “a” before Town Parks.

Page 6-17 Local Park Facilities, number 3, Scenic Overlook, 1st and 3rd line should be “State” not “Sate”

Page 7-5 Niagara Escarpment, listing starts with number 5 and repeats number 5.

Page 7-10 No page number.

Page 8-8 Residential Development as Economic Development. We asked that the font size for this heading be the same the other headings in this section.

Page 8-8 Residential Development as Economic Development, 2nd paragraph, lines 4 & 6 have words separated by a “\\ “rather than a “/”

Page 8-9 First paragraph, 2nd line, delete “(see box at left)”

Page 9-7 Last line, should have “B-2” in first column.

Page 9-11 Last √ under “Once in effect, the criteria…” which reads “Compatibility with the Town of Taycheedah Comprehensive Plan” should have the font corrected for consistency.

Page 10-7 Quarries, 3rd line, should read “,,,as a conditional use only in A-1 …”

Page 10-17 Table 24, a question from me, not necessarily a mistake. Have the projections been adjusted to account for our final land use map? The numbers are the same since the very first draft.

Appendix Glossary. We decided to eliminate this.

Comprehensive Planning Committee
April 9th, 2009

Fred Pfister, N8478 Minawa Beach Road: He commended the Committee for their hard work. He is concerned with future land use designations not corresponding with current use and the loss of the rights of the current property owners. It was noted that the Future Land Use Plan does not impact the current zoning of property. Committee deemed no action would be taken due to the fact that the matter relates to the Zoning Ordinance.

Bruce Peterson, N10241 CTH W, Chairman, Town of Calumet: He commended the Board and the Committee for their work. He commented that the Plan will give the Town the ability to control future growth. Committee deemed no action was necessary.

Bruce Dalka, W2340 Ash Road, Town of Marshfield resident: He commented about the possibility of wind turbines being constructed in the Town of Taycheedah. He spoke of the negative impacts caused by wind turbines and encouraged the Town Board to require setbacks greater than 1,000 feet. Committee deemed no action would be taken due to the fact that the matter relates to the Zoning Ordinance.

Written testimony received prior to the conclusion of the public hearing:

Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Matt Halada
Page 5-3: Bicycle Routes/ Corridors section. Please add a note: "WisDOT project 4050-07-70 (Peebles to North County Line) Pavement Replacement will add 5 ft shoulders to US 151 from WH to Pipe." Committee consensus was to extend the USH 151 bike trail to the north townline.
Page 5-6 Functional Class section. Due to changes in the road system from the opening of USH 151 in 2007, Winnebago Drive changed to a Minor Arterial. All of County K is a Major Collector. All of County Q should show up on your map as a Minor Collector. I don't have √record of Johnsburg Rd, Ledge Road and Cody Road as being Minor Collectors so I suggest changing them to Local Roads. Attached is the adopted Urban map from August 2005. When the census updates Urban areas in 2010, the MPO will meet to update the Functional Class. Neal Nett motioned to amend the Plan as recommended in order to be consistent, seconded by Rebecca Ries. Motion carried (9-0).
Page 5-10 USH 151 Corridor Bypass. I suggest describing this project in the past tense as it was completed in 2007. I would also make note of the ongoing Freeway Conversion project from STH 23 to US 151 and plans on STH 23 and connecting with USH 151 are yet to be determined. Joanne Thome motioned, Tim Krawczyk seconded, to revise USH 151 Corridor Bypass as follows:

Comprehensive Planning Committee
April 9th, 2009
Restate the second sentence to read “It consists of a newly constructed 8.1 mile highway…”
1st √ Delete the word “Constructing”
2nd √ Change “Limiting” to “Limited”
3rd √ Delete “Constructing” and substitute “will be constructed” with “are”
4th √ Delete “Building”
5th √ Delete “Constructing”
6th √ Delete “Adding”

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources-Gus Glaser

He presented various comments pertaining to stormwater and the Town’s MS4 general permit requirements. Joanne Thome motioned to not amend the Plan due to the fact that the Town Board is actively addressing the issue as required by law, seconded by Ed Braun. Motion carried (9-0).

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources-Jennifer Easterly

She presented a suggestion to delineate the two known landfills on the land use map. One being the Town of Taycheedah landfill at Silica Road and the other at the former Bud Bender property, N7827 USH 151.( Jeff Sanders noted during the 3/19/09 Committee meeting that the location of landfills have been incorporated into the present and future land use maps as required by statute.) Jerry Guelig motioned to amend the map to include the two known landfill sites, seconded by Tim Krawczyk. Motion carried (9-0).

Comprehensive Planning Committee
April 9th, 2009

Committee consensus was correct Page 7-6; Rivers, Streams and Drainage Areas, to identify the proper drainage basins that the Town is located in (as noted on page 3 of their correspondence).

Town resident inquired about Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations. The Committee felt Jeff Sanders, OMNNI, accurately addressed the resident’s question. Therefore, the Committee did not take any action.

Joanne Thome moved to submit to OMNNI the minutes of this meeting outlining amendments to be incorporated in the Plan. After the revised Plan is received from OMNNI, the Committee will review the minutes and the revised Plan for accuracy prior to submitting the Plan to the Town Board for their approval and adoption. The motion was seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (9-0).

The Comprehensive Planning Committee will meet on Thursday, April 23rd, at 6:30 p.m., to review the revised Plan.

4. Public Comment. A resident discussed the relationship between zoning and current land use.
