Call to order at 6:30pm
Dorsey moved to approved agenda, Kester second, all approved

Forrest moved to approve minutes of last meeting (09-29-2015) as read, Kester second, all approved.

Discussion held on Administrative Review Permit for a 7 unit storage building to be built at Dunhams Seasonal Mobile Home Park. The property is zoned properly for this use, and the Commission saw no conflict with the Comprehensive Plan.

Discussed letter From Mr. Darold Wollenberg proposing the Town develop an ordinance to address roadside garbage being left out not in a container, (including recyclables) or being left for long periods of time. One of the problems is that residents that come up for a weekend must leave there garbage out on Sunday for Tuesday pickup, and wont be able to take cans back until they’re next trip. We do not want to discourage seasonal residents from disposing of solid waste the proper way. If an ordinance were made that required that garbage only be placed by the roadside the morning of pickup and removed the same day, many weekend residents would be unable to comply with this and still use a disposal service. The Commission will look into the possibility of a container ordinance, or working with local services to see if the are willing to provide.

Sharon Lintereur will contact the three disposal services in this area to determine feasability, and see if they even separate recyclables anymore. The issue will be on the next meeting agenda.

Next meeting date to be June 2nd, 6:30 Lintereur motion to adjourn

MEETING WITH ONEIDA COUNTY PLANNING AND ZONING REPRESENTATIVE (Karl Jennrich)

REGARDING POSSIBLITY OF FUTURE HOTEL-MOTEL DEVELOPMENT

Forrest explained that town is considering possibility of future hotel-motel development in town.

Jennrich explained suggested finding areas that are zoned either Recreation or Business. Business would be better especially if development is on water as it would need far less frontage 65 feet for the whole operation. If it is zoned recreation it would need 100 feet of frontage for the first unit and 40 feet for each additional unit.

Items that came up under discussion to consider are the location/cost of water and sewer, traffic and road upgrades for both construction and after construction, and if neighbors, other property owns on lake, general public, other business owners, and town board support or don’t support the project and how they might be affected. Other items to think about would be process of rezoning (if necessary), if there is a need for this type of development, would it fit with town plan, and costs of project and who might bear various costs (developer and/or town), and notification of public. Dennis Turner, who has been involved in various projects like this over the years across the country and is now retired in the area, said he would help the town if needed.

MEET WITH LAKE TOMAHAWK SANITARY DISTRICT REPRESENTATIVE REGARDING MOTEL-HOTEL DEVELOPMENT

Representative stated that the sewage treatment plant is now working at about 30,000-35,000 gallons/day and its limit is about 57,000 gallons/day – a bit over half capacity currently. Also stated was that sewage on Lake Tomahawk ends just before the junction of Blue Jay and Lark Roads.
Forrest stated that the next step is to have a meeting to develop wording for a possible feasibility plan and gather ideas on what considerations might need to go into a plan.

OCTOBER 27, 2011 PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING

PRESENT: Steve Forrest (Chair), Roger Dorsey (Secretary), Tom Kester, Mike Lynch, Nancy Bayne, Catherine Parker (Town Board liaison)
CALL TO ORDER: Forrest called the meeting to order at 6:30pm
APPROVE PREVIOUS MEETING MINUTES: Forrest motion that meeting previous meeting minutes (as amended with today’s meeting date and time) be passed, second by Dorsey – motion carried
CORRESPONDENCE: none
TOWN MEETING REPORT: Parker stated that there was discussion at the town meeting regarding the camping ordinance with respect to tax fairness, individual property rights, and environmental concerns.
DISCUSSION OF CAMPING ORDINANCE: Forrest commented that the basic intents of the camping ordinance were primarily to protect the environment with respect to garbage, sewage, and water, as well as trying to balance the property rights of all property owners. Another consideration, is tax fairness to all. Those who leave a camping unit for extended periods on their property and get benefits of town services such as fire protection and roads, do not pay the higher taxes like those who have a permanent residence. The committee discussed that there must be some way to balance all these issues as people should be allowed to camp on their land if that’s all they intend to do and not have to set up and take down a camping unit each time they stay. The committee developed new language to better balance these issues. Number five on the camping ordinance now reads:
Unless owned by property owner and on a lot with a permanent residence, the camping unit shall be removed from the individual campsite after each camping stay. An exception shall be made for a camping unit on owner’s lot with a county-approved waste disposal system; said unit may remain on that site up to 90 total days per year.
REVIEW AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE FOLLOWING CUP PERMITS:
a. Robert Rayford lessee and Tom Knutson, owner for a small engine shop and display building for Knutson Builders. Concerns of the committee were parking, floor drain, and long term outside storage of vehicles and engines. Lessee has own collection for waste oil so floor drain not an issue. Lessee shares a lot with current repair shop. Lessee should include parking issue in agreement with neighboring repair shop. Committee was also unclear on building location with respect to property lines. Town should also investigate possible encroachment of building site on state DOT property. Parker with follow up with Town Board on this issue. Rayford (in attendance at meeting) discussed with respect to long term storage of vehicles and engines, he his incentive is to repair vehicles quickly and get them back to the owners and that he also has a lot in Woodruff for long term storage. Forrest motioned for town approval with the restriction that vehicles be limited to stay on the lot for no more than 14 days and that the town follow up on lot line issues. Kester second – motion carried.
b. Lisa Roberts lessee and Joel Hirschhorn owner, to use old bank building for music classroom and recording studio. Discussion included concern for noise. Forrest motioned that town approve CUP, Bayne seconded – motion carried
c. Wendy Jones, owner to modify condominium agreement to allow building a garage. Item did not apply to Plan Commission.

CALL TO ORDER: 6:30pm
AAPROVE AGENDA: Forrest moved, Dorsey second - all approved
CORRESPONDENCE: Forrest mentioned that the Town Board wanted to look at a draft of the camping permit and also mentioned that the Town Board wanted to know how much to budget for the Planning Commission. Last year the Planning Commission had $1000.00 in the budget and did not use any. The Commission thought that it would be good to leave the same amount, but if it was reduced to $500.00 that would be fine, so long as the town is willing to pay cost of any mailings or surveys requested by the town.
TOWN MEETING REPORT: Parker said the building ordinance passed, and that the camping ordinance would have passed too, but that the public wants more information.
REVIEW, AMEND, AND VOTE ON CAMPING ORDINANCE: The commission worked on the wording of the camping ordinance and discussed that camper could be kept on property all the time if there is a permanent residence, otherwise it needed to be removed at the end of each camping stay. Forrest motioned to recommend that the Town Board pass the camping ordinance as corrected, Kester second – all approved.
DEVELOP AND VOTE ON CAMPING PERMIT: Forrest presented a sample of the camping permit. Commission worked on wording and also discussed that it would be important to let the public know (perhaps by sending a short note in the tax bill) of the possible changes for next spring if passed by the Town Board. Forrest motioned that the town board pass the permit, Dorsey second – all approved.
PUBLIC INPUT: George Demet (Town Board member) discussed why he voted against the dwelling districts and recommended that the lower limit building size of 720 square feet be lowered to 576 square feet as there are “green building alternatives” that are very small and would fit with the “north woods character of the town”. The town should not limit size. Commission discussed the idea and thought it would be a good one so long as the other conditions of the ordinance are met.
ADJOURNMENT: Forrest motioned to adjourn at 7:40pm, second Lynch – all approved
HOMEWORK FOR COMMISSION: Examine town ordinances and pick ones that we might be able to work on next time. NEXT MEETING: October 27, 2011 6:30pm

Welcomed new member: Tom Kester

Discussed Camping Ordinance: Forrest passed out draft ordinance to public members attending. And summarized intent of ordinance is to address concerns expressed in Town Plan regarding keeping northwood’s character of town, protecting water, soils, and other natural resources as well as sensitivity to competing land uses. Another concern is safety for traffic, fire and rescue (approved driveway and fire number). He also mentioned trying to be fair to those who already have homes or cabins and pay property taxes with those who will camp for longer periods and not pay taxes for housing in the town. This ordinance would discourage long term camping, but still allow people to camp on their property.
Public concerns expressed by Jack Dunbar, Brenda Thompson, and Mr. and Mrs. Terrance Sukow, were regarding enforcement of ordinance, how and where the free permits would be issued, property rights of individuals, and limiting the number of days camping. Ordinance was rewritten to address the some of these concerns by increasing the number of days of camping to 90 per year, not exceed 14 days at one time. Rewritten draft will be sent to Town Board.

Discussion of Building/Dwelling Ordinance was put on hold until next meeting.

Town of Lake Tomahawk Planning Commission Issues

Lake Tomahawk Town Board:

To all concerned:

At the January meeting of the Lake Tomahawk Plan Commission, the members
reviewed, and prioritized some of the issues that we feel need to be addressed by
the Town Board. Below is the list in order of importance.

1. The issue of solid waste disposal, in section 9.1.4.

2.Create a Town policy that requires all property owners within a three mile
radius to be notified, in writing by mail, of any proposed changes in land use or
zoning.

3.Validity of ordinances (specifically regarding mobile homes) sect. 9.2.1

4. Development of ordinance(s) to address temporary dwellings, camping.

5. Developing and or enforcing ordinances that would help improve appearance
of the business corridor.

6. Recommend that town use Plan Commission as a tool to review CUP permits to
be sure they fit Town Plan.

7. Pursue development of new county zoning district that conforms to our new
“Restricted Mixed Use” district as outlined in sect. 8.7.


It is the opinion of the Commission that the first three issues should be addressed
as soon as possible.
Please feel free to call on the Commission for assistance on any of these issues, we
would be glad to meet with the Town Board and discuss these issues further.
Respectfully Submitted
