The Town of Taycheedah Comprehensive Planning Committee met on Thursday, March 22nd, 2012, at 6:30 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall. Members present were: Ed Braun, Jerry Guelig, Tim Krawczyk, Neal Nett, Rebecca Ries, Brenda Schneider, Joanne Thome, Joe Thome and Mike Wirtz. Also present were Jeff Sanders, Town's consultant and one interested person.

1. Call to Order. Chairman Ed Braun called the meeting to order at 6:34 pm.

2. Approve the minutes of the 2/16/12 meeting. Motion by Neal Nett, second by Mike Wirtz, to approve the minutes of the 2/16/12 meeting with a correction as to the presence of Joe Thome. Joe was excused for the meeting. Motion carried (9-0).

3. Review and discuss revisions to the Code of Ordinances and maps.

Mapping project. Revisions/corrections to the maps were put on hold until after the next round of Fond du Lac County cluster meetings. Since the last meeting, it was learned that the County developed criteria to be applied to each of the towns' farmland preservation maps. Their criteria explains why the Town's draft map returned by the County's consultant did little to reflect the version submitted by the Committee. It was also learned that the County's criteria may change after the March cluster meetings.

The County cluster meetings are scheduled as follows:
March 27th Empire Town Hall
March 28th Lamartine Town Hall
March 29th Eden Town Hall
The Town of Taycheedah will be addressed during the March 27th meeting. Tim Krawczyk, Joe Thome, Rebecca Ries, Mike Wirtz and Neal Nett will try to attend on the Committee's behalf.

The current criteria used by the County are to exclude clusters of three or more small parcels being used for residential purposes.

Committee discussed future build-ability of small vacant parcels under Exclusive Ag zoning. Mr. Sanders clarified that every base farm tract can have one farm residence as a permitted use with no minimum acreage requirement. Mr. Sanders further explained that the 1:20 ratio comes into play for any future non-farm residences.

Ordinance project. The Committee discussed a staff report presented by Jeff Sanders regarding the compilation of text language for an A-3 zoning district that would encompass the current A-T lands located between the Ledge and Lake Winnebago and the St. Peter area. The A-3 lands would limit the number of animals, new animal operations would be prohibited and new structures to house animals would be regulated. The A-3 zoning district would not be Working Lands compliant; which would not qualify for farmland preservation tax credits.

Option 1 would be to eliminate A-T district. Rezone all A-T parcels to A-1 or A-2 and make modifications to the current A-2 text would require a conditional use permit for the construction of any new accessory structures; which would include structures for livestock.

Option 2 would rezone all A-T parcels to A-3. Text for A-3 would need to be compiled. The text would have the same permitted and conditional uses and area, height and yard requirements. Typically, the minimum lot size would decrease with each ag zoning district.

Motion by Neal Nett, second by Ed Braun, to reverse the action of the Committee made during the February 16th meeting to develop an A-3 district in favor of modifying the current A-2 district to encompass the intention of the A-3 district into the current A-2 district (Staff report-Option 1). Motion carried (9-0).

Committee goals for the next meeting are to approve A-2 District text revisions and rezone A-T properties to A-1 or A-2; whichever is appropriate. The Committee will also need to finalize the mapping projects.

Mapping exercises yet to be completed are as follows:
Modifications of agricultural land to A-1 or A-2, and eliminate all A-T; and
Finalize the base farm tracts.

Next steps:
Complete the revisions to the Zoning Code.
Conduct a Plan Commission public hearing.
Town Board preliminary approval of the draft ordinance language.
Submit to DATCP. Mr. Sanders will assist with submittal.
Once certified by DATCP, conduct a Plan Commission public hearing and proceed to Board approval.

4. Schedule the next meeting. Thursday, April 12th, at 6:30 pm.

5. Public Comment. None presented.

6. Adjournment. Motion by Ed Braun, second by Joanne Thome, to adjourn at 8:18 p.m. Motion carried (9-0).

Respectfully Submitted,
Brenda A. Schneider
