Here is the minutes provided by the committee:
Meeting called to order at 3 pm by Ordinance Chairman Stan Darter with following committee members in attendance: Steve Notheisen, Russ Thomas, City Zoning Officer Jim Nagel, James Hopkins, Clyde Heller, Attorney Dan Hayes, Building Inspector Nathan Krebel, and Public Works Director Tim Birk. Aldermen Russ Row, Kyle Buettner and James Trantham were not in attendance.
Agenda Item 1: Petitions by citizens on non-agenda items. No citizens present for non-agenda items. Agenda Item 2. Planning Agenda.
a. RP Lumber-Commercial building material. Nathan Krebel presented history of problem concerning RP Lumber application of a sign backing across the front of their building made of non-approved building material. The material was metal roofing with exposed fasteners. A revised material is using Hardy Board cement which is approved on case by case basis. Discussion. After lengthy discussion, motion made by Clyde Heller to approve the Hardy Board Cement material as sign background and suggest it be used in 4x8 foot sheets. Russ Thomas seconded motion, vote 3-1, Steve Notheisen no, due to RP Lumber doing work without approved building permit. Nathan explained that RP Lumber had already been cited and received a fine.
Additional items, Nathan needs approved drawings reflecting depth of support structure for roof over entrance. Nathan also explained proposed alteration of entrance to have steps installed on north entrance and an ADA compliant entrance on the south door entrance. Current entrances are not ADA compliant.
b. Natalie Estates- discussion. James Nagel presented preliminary plat plans for comment. Discussion focused on size and number of proposed cul-de-sacs, possible issues of snow removal and trash truck operation in the turnarounds. Discussion on lack of identified sidewalks since this subdivision adjoins elementary schools. Jim Hopkins questioned why no tree line breaking the backyards facing Rogers and Hamacher. This is only required when adjoining commercial zoned property. Recommendation is to have sidewalks installed on Rogers and Hamacher Street sides of subdivision. Jim Nagel informed committee that Hayden Drive was moved north and Natalie Drive was moved to meet Adams Drive.
Agenda Item 3. Ordinance Agenda. Mayor Smith has contacted IML and a general ordinance concerning Sale of Marijuana, Marijuana Bars and Cigar Bars is being written. Discussion without any recommendation or action prevailed.
Agenda Item 4, Comments: None.
Motion to adjourn made by Steve Notheisen and second by Russ Thomas, meeting adjourned at 4:17 pm.
