PLAN COMMISSION
PUBLIC HEARING
COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT
CAROLYN VICTOR LAND CONSERVANCY, INC
THURSDAY, MAY 26th, 2016
6:00 P.M.
TAYCHEEDAH TOWN HALL

Members present: Chairman John Wagner, Bud Sabel, Leon Schneider, Joan Simon, Tim Simon, Bill Spieker and Joe Thome. Also present: Secretary Brenda Schneider.

Chairman Wagner called the public hearing to order at 6:00 pm.

The purpose of the public hearing was to make a recommendation to the Town Board regarding the following proposed amendments to the Town's Comprehensive Land Use Plan:

Change the future land use designation of the following parcels owned by Carolyn Victor Land Conservancy, Inc.:
Parcel #T20-16-18-29-14-002-00 (5.00 acres) from Single Family to Woodland;
Parcel #T20-16-18-29-14-005-00 (30.14 acres) retain the Woodland;
Parcel #T20-16-18-29-03-003-00 (28.30 acres) from Proposed Rural Residential and Proposed Single Family to Woodland; and
Parcel #T20-16-18-29-08-003-00 (0.84 acres) from Proposed Rural Residential to Woodland.

The Plan Commission heard the following comments regarding proposed amendments:
Steve Victor, representing Carolyn Victor Land Conservancy, LLC, presented the background for the request:
o His wife owns the property. She's wanted to own Ledge property for over 40 years.
o The family intends to keep the land in conservancy in-perpetuity.
o The land will be used for private study. They are hoping to host study sessions for college students for scientific and educational purposes.
o The land has a pond, flowing stream, lots of interesting plants and active coyote dens.
o The land contains about 1/4 mile of Ledge.
o Their daughter Liz is a geologist.
o They've formed a 5013c, non-profit corporation. Contributions are tax deductible.
o They are working with Glacier Lakes Conservancy. If in the future, the Carolyn Victor Conservancy, LLC, dissolves, the land will transfer to the Glacier Lake Conservancy.
o The land is not planned to be open to the public initially due to liability concerns. There will be probably invitation only opportunities for guided tours.
o The Conservancy will develop a Management Plan.
o The house has been demolished with no intent to rebuild. The Articles of Incorporation specify that the property is never to be used for a residence. A 16x16 garage with a patio has been built at the location of the former house.
o The property is currently zoned Single-Family Residential with Public Sewer (R-1). The assessment on the property is anticipated to decrease due to the removal of the house.
An unidentified neighbor expressed support of the amendment.
No one spoke in opposition.
