September 30, 2015

 

The Board met at 9:00 a.m. at the Nielsen Community Center in West Point, NE, pursuant to the previous day’s business, with all members present.  The Chairman stated that a current copy of the “Nebraska Open Meetings Act” is posted at the entrance to the meeting room and a pamphlet form of the act is available upon request.  He then welcomed members of the public in attendance, which were approximately 20 citizens.

 

Chairman Tichota then asked for a motion to open a public hearing to review amendments to the Comprehensive Plan.  A motion was made by Mutzenberger and seconded by Meister to open the public hearing to review amendments to the Comprehensive Plan.  Upon a roll call the vote resulted as follows; Meister, Mutzenberger, Ross, Sill, Wiechman, Ott and Tichota, yeas; nays none; motion carried.

 

Garry Clark, Zoning Administrator, discussed three places in Chapter Five of the current Comprehensive Plan in which the language refers to a 40 acre minimum lot size in the AG1 District.  After review, Chairman Tichota asked for comments from the public.  Marian Metzger was present with comments, but withdrew her comment which pertained more to the Zoning Regulations.

 

With no additional comments from the public, Chairman Tichota asked for a motion to close the public hearing.  As a result, a motion was made by Mutzenberger and seconded by Wiechman to close the public hearing.  Upon a roll call the vote resulted as follows; Meister, Mutzenberger, Ross, Sill, Wiechman, Ott and Tichota, yeas; nays none; motion carried.

 

Chairman Tichota, then asked for the Board to consider adopting Resolution 20150906; a resolution to adopt the amendments to the Cuming County Comprehensive Plan.  As a result, Supervisor Sill, with a second by Supervisor Mutzenberger, moved the passage of Resolution 20150906. Upon a roll call the vote resulted as follows; Meister, Mutzenberger, Ross, Sill, Wiechman, Ott and Tichota, yeas; nays none; motion carried.

 

Next, Chairman Tichota asked for a motion to open a public hearing to hear support, opposition, criticism, suggestions or observations from the public on the revised Zoning Regulations.  Supervisor Sill, with a second from Supervisor Ott, made a motion to open the public hearing to review the revised zoning regulations.  Upon a roll call the vote resulted as follows; Meister, Mutzenberger, Ross, Sill, Wiechman, Ott and Tichota, yeas; nays none; motion carried.

 

Garry Clark presented a power point presentation regarding the significant changes to the draft zoning regulations as presented at the planning commission public hearing.  Along with the power point presentation and amendments approved for adoption by the planning commission, Clark also presented additional changes to article 14 and article 15.  The changes were discussed by the technical committee after comments from the planning commission public hearing on September 15th.  If adopted, the change would reword a portion of sections 14.03 and 15.03 for clarification purposes.

 

Chairman Tichota then asked for comments from the public.  Marian Metzger asked the Board to consider reducing the minimum lot size to 5 acres in an AG1 District.  Her reason for the request is the cost to construct a new acreage when you consider the price of land,  a septic system and a well.  She stated the combined cost is too high for a young family to build in rural Cuming County.  Jerry Reimers, resident of Dodge County, who has paid taxes in Cuming County for many years, made comments regarding his objection to design standards for a dwelling.  He also objected to the whole zoning concept.  West Point Chamber Director, Tina Biteghe Bi Ndong, thanked the Board of Supervisors and planning commission for the hard work they did to protect agriculture, which is the main economy of the county.  Mark Iden had questions regarding the overlay district which will be discussed more thoroughly during the process to adopt a new zoning map.  Paul Meyer, Chairman of the planning commission, made comments regarding existing acreages and the reasons the work group committee would like to see the inhabitable acreages revert back to bare ground.

 

After no further comments from the public, Chairman Tichota asked consideration of the passage of Resolution 20150907; a resolution to adopt the revised zoning regulations with presented amendments.  Supervisor Mutzenberger, with a second by Supervisor Sill, moved the adoption of Resolution 20150907.  Before Tichota asked for a roll call vote, he asked members of the Board if they would like to comment.  Supervisor Ross stated his objection to the setback for new dwellings from LFOs in an AG1 district.  With no more comments from the Board, Tichota asked for a roll call vote. Upon a roll call the vote resulted as follows; Meister, Mutzenberger, Sill and Tichota, yeas; nays Ross, Wiechman and Ott; motion carried.

 

There being no more business, the board agreed to adjourn and reconvene on October 13, 2015 at 11:30 a.m.  The agenda kept current in the office of the county clerk and on the website (www.cumingco.com).
