1. Discussion of Comprehensive Development Plan:
=t been drawn to that area.
Alan Wear thinks the area still has potential for commercial use and believes it should be left alone. He also questioned the need for rail.
John Yochum agreed that some businesses are looking for rail access, but this wasn=t necessarily the area.
After considerable discussion, the general consensus was to leave Section 19 the way it is, change the rest of Section 16 to residential high and to further discuss Section 18.
South side of Highway 370 from 120th Street to 144th Street (continue commercial, extend protected corridor to at least 1/4 to2 mile)
The discussion was to have the corridor either 1/4 mile or2 mile, keeping it consistent. It was brought up that, with the topography of the land, it might be better to have it read Aup to 2 mile A, so there is some give and take, if necessary.
Dwight Trumble indicated that he would like to see on overlay of the Papillion Watershed onto the future land use map in order to see where sewer and water is and will be available. It may be easier to determine where the best suited places are for future commercial/industrial use.
Greenbelt Overlay Districts
Ken Tex mentioned the proposal submitted by Mike Smith, Deputy County Attorney, and reminded the commissioners that it had been put on hold awaiting a decision from the State. No decision was made by the State, leaving a question about the way the law reads open.
Discussion then turned to whether it would do any good to adopt a zoning district; that this would be a test case and how it would be handled.
Brian Hanson stated that the Assessor=s Office is in a tough position because they are trying to follow the law as the Assessor interprets it. He feels that this might help their office.
The general feeling was to create the overlay district as a solution to the overall problem. It was stated that this might not solve the problem, but it might help the affected citizens for the time being. It will be brought to a vote at the next general meeting of the Planning Commission.
Percentage of lot coverage on commercial property.
Cindy Gilbert said she had received a few answers from other jurisdictions. She stated, from the letter she had sent to the commissioners prior to the meeting, that no other jurisdiction she spoke to had less than 50% coverage and the average was closer to 75%. After some discussion, it was agreed by most that the percentage should be set at a maximum of 75%.
There being no further business, Leonard moved, seconded by Johnson, to adjourn the meeting. By a unanimous oral vote, Chair Meyer declared the meeting adjourned at 9:33 p.m.
