Planning Commission minutes July 16, 2008

Town of Daniel DANIEL PLANNING Board Meeting July 16th , 2008

  1. The meeting was called to order by Eric Bunker.
  2. Public Comment
    1. Lynn & Beth Kitchens want to obtain the approval of the planning commission to build another home on their 6 acre property on Little Sweden Rd. There are 4 cabins currently on the property. They have renovated the current cabins to be in year-round, livable condition. They have old building permits from 1967 that have the signature of the county planner from that time that gives them permission to build on the property. One permit was examined and found to be valid and legal.  He has combined 2 lots to meet the set-back requirement code of the town. Anyone from the council is allowed and welcome to visit the property and the cabins to see the conditions of both. The property remains a ‘lot of record’ through a ‘lot-line adjustment’ when 2 lots were combined. He does not need to provide a new ‘plat record’. He turned the design plans over to Epic Engineering.
    2. Jon Blotter is asking for help and/or suggestions from the planning board on behalf of the town council as they pursue an application for a CDBG Grant that must be turned in by December 2008. In order to fulfill the application requirement 134 household surveys must be filled out by an adult household member. It must be done by going door to door. How can this be accomplished? Suggestions were given to ask for help at the Daniel Town Fund Raiser scheduled for sometime in August and/or put an announcement in the next town newsletter. The survey is only 2 pages, 2 questions and completely anonymous. It will be placed in a sealed envelope, then in a sealed box.
    3. Doug Crittenden wants to build a 24X36X16 hay barn on his property. It will have no power or water. Must meet 50ft set back requirements if no animals will be housed inside or 100 ft if animals will be housed within. He chose not to have any animals inside. It will be for hay storage only. Council members saw no problems. He gave his plans to Epic Engineering.
