Village of Mead Planning Commission meeting
January 29th, 2018
The meeting was called to order at 730 p.m. We adopted the agenda. Pete moved, and Connie seconded, that approve the minutes from the November 27, 2017 minutes. All agreed.
Present were Jody Weible, Levi Durnal, Connie Schliffke, Melissa Konecky and Rick Miller. Matt Bratsburg, Wyatt Swartz and Jim Halbmaier were absent. Guests were Tyler Bukaske and Terrel Brabec.
Tyler and Terrel were considering building a duplex on a skinny lot that would not meet setbacks. They will have to ask the Board of Trustees for a variance. The address is 420 Cedar which is R2.
We received a list of permits for 2017.
Scott Selko is purchasing three lots by the school and is turning them into two lots.
We are reviewing amendments to zoning regulations having to do with shipping and storage containers. This item was tabled by the Board of Trustees at their November 14th, 2017 meeting. It is to be presented to them at their February 13th meeting for their review prior to their scheduling of public hearings. I have attached a brief definition of Bennett’s zoning regulations for shipping containers and pods:§ 152.026-67 SHIPPING CONTAINER.
A reusable enclosed or semi-enclosed vessel, cargo container, or truck trailer:
Originally, specifically, or formerly designed or used for the packing, shipping, movement, or transportation of freight, articles, goods, belongings, or commodities; or
Designed for or capable of being mounted or moved on a railcar, truck, or vessel; or
Designed for or capable of being mounted on a chassis or bogie for movement by truck tractor or similar device.
§ 152.026-68 PODS.
A portable storage container designed and intended for the temporary placement upon property for the onsite storage of household or other goods, with a size typically not exceeding 16 ft. x 8 ft. x 8 ft.
(a) Originally, specifically, or formerly designed or used for the packing, shipping,
movement, or transportation of freight, articles, goods, belongings, or commodities; or
(b) Designed for or capable of being mounted or moved on a railcar, truck, or vessel; or
(c) Designed for or capable of being mounted on a chassis or bogie for movement by
truck, tractor or similar device.
These regulations include shipping containers and pods. We are recommending storage containers may be placed in residential districts for six months with one possible extension. Mead is also making the change of having the State Fire Marshal inspect proposed locations of propane tanks instead of the Mead Fire Department Chief.
At 8:15 p.m., Melissa moved, and Connie seconded, that we adjourn. All agreed.
