THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2014
TAYCHEEDAH TOWN HALL
Members present were Chairman John Wagner, Bud Sabel, Joan Simon, Joe Thome, Leon Schneider, Bill Spieker and Secretary Brenda Schneider. Absent-Tim Simon.
The purpose of the public hearing was to make a recommendation to the Town Board regarding the rezoning of the following described lands:
• Section 16, Town 16 North, Range 18 East, Town of Taycheedah, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, 5.911 acres, located at W3907 Silica Road.
The Chairman Wagner called the public hearing to order at 6:30 pm.
Jeremy Vanderloop, Madden, Vanderloop Law Office, representing Mr. Korytko, provided the following testimony:
• Mr. Korytko moved to New York due to his work.
• The rezone requested is a modest change from R-2 to R-1.
• There is no distinction between R-2 and R-1 in the Zoning Code other than sewered vs. unsewered.
• The lands are proposed to be divided. The lots will have the proper acreage and the proper road frontage.
• The rezone will make the lots conforming.
Eric Freiberg, ET Surveying, provided the following testimony:
• He compiled the proposed Certified Survey Map for Tim Korytko. Eric explained the zoning inconsistencies with the proposed new lots.
• He has studied the grade elevation, noting that the existing grade would be conducive to gravity sewer service to the main along Silica Road.
Brenda Schneider, Town Clerk, informed the Plan Commission members of the following:
• All the acreage is within Taycheedah Sanitary District #3.
• A home could be built on the R-2 lands, as currently zoned, so long as Korytko provided a written, recorded easement for access to Silica Road.
Richard Bertram, W3847 Silica Road, informed the group that the bedrock is only about one foot below the dirt. Mr. Freiberg noted the sewer is 16-18 feet deep along Silica Road. He was not directed to research the cost of extending the sewer to a new home site. It was noted these costs would be absorbed by the landowner when building a home; not the Town or the Sanitary District.
Mr. Bertram also noted that the quarry is located 1,080 feet from the north property line of the Korytko property. Bertram believes there is a prohibition on the building of homes within 1,500 feet of the quarry. Brenda Schneider researched the Conditional Use Permits for the Northeast Asphalt, Inc., Quarry, the Simon Quarry, and the Summit Quarry. She was unable to find any such prohibition.
Mr. Bertram referenced the Town Board's position in regards to the Jim Emerich development along Lakeview Road. Schneider reported that the Town Board did not approve all of the lots originally proposed by Emerich due to the proximity to two active quarries. Schneider located a reference in the June 12, 1995, minutes of the Plan Commission public hearing. The minutes state Discussion about the close proximity of the property to two operating Quarries. Jim Emerich stated that being close to the quarries does not bother him. Land not approved by the Town Board for home construction was eventually sold to Gerald & Michelle Schneider.
Gerald & Michelle Schneider, N8571 Lakeview Road, questioned to location of their property in relation to the Korytko property.
The Plan Commission noted that the request complies with the Zoning Code and the Comprehensive Plan; and that there are no restrictions regarding the altering of the Ledge.
Seeing no further comments or questions, motion by Joe Thome, second by Bud Sabel, to recommend the Town Board approve the request of Tim Korytko to rezone the lands noted above, from Single-Family Residential without Public Sewer (R-2) to Single-Family Residential with Public Sewer (R-1). Motion carried (6-0-1 absent).
Motion by Bud Sabel, second by Bill Spieker, to adjourn at 6:51 p.m. Motion carried (6-0-1 absent).
