I. CONSENT AGENDA ITEMS:

None.

II. REGULAR AGENDA ITEMS:

1. Dale Harder, 15802 Schram Road, Gretna, requests approval of a Change of Zone from AG to AGD on the following described property, to wit: Being a platting of part of the SE1/4 of Sec 34, Twp 14N, Rng 11E of the 6th P.M., Sarpy County, Nebraska. (156th & Schram)

Chair Meyer stated that this agenda item would also need an amendment to the comprehensive plan with respect to the future land use map.

Stu Sutherland introduced himself as the representative for Mr. & Mrs. Dale Harder. He stated this platting was being done for the purpose of estate planning. Their land is divided by the Interstate leaving approximately 150 acres on the south side of the Interstate. This is where they want to separate 10 acres from the rest of the farm because this is where the homestead is. All the property will eventually be divided among the Harder= s children.

Denny Nichols asked if we could have gone with 20 acres instead and questioning the minimum lot size in a commercial zone.

Cindy Gilbert responded by saying that the minimum lot size in a commercial zone was 10,000 square feet and that the ten acres was appropriate in that respect.

Tom Hurley asked where the nearest active commercial property is.

Mr. Sutherland indicated it lies approximately one-half mile north of this property. He also stated they have added the 50' street dedication to the plat.

Matthies moved, seconded by LaBart to recommend approval of an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan to change it from Commercial/Industrial to Transitional Agricultural because it is the existing homestead and it is fitting to the area. Ballot: Ayes - Fenster, Hurley, Kunz, LaBart, Matthies, Nichols, Wear, Wees and Whitfield. Nays - none. Abstain - none. Absent - Buethe. Motion carried.

Matthies moved, seconded by Nichols to recommend approval of the Change of Zone from AG to AGD because it is consistent with the amended comp plan. Ballot: Ayes - Fenster, Hurley, Kunz, LaBart, Matthies, Nichols, Wear, Wees and Whitfield. Nays - none. Abstain - none. Absent - Buethe. Motion carried.

2. Dale Harder, 15802 Schram Road, Gretna, requests approval of a Preliminary/Final Plat on a subdivision to be known as Harder Farms No. 1 on the following described property, to wit: Being a platting of part of the SE1/4 of Sec 34, Twp 14N, Rng 11E of the 6th P.M., Sarpy County, Nebraska. (156th & Schram)

There were no further comments for the Preliminary/Final Plat.

Nichols moved, seconded by Wear to recommend approval of the Preliminary/Final Plat as it meets the subdivision regulations. Ballot: Ayes - Fenster, Hurley, Kunz, LaBart, Matthies, Nichols, Wear, Wees and Whitfield. Nays - none. Abstain - none. Absent - Buethe. Motion carried.

3. Chris Lake Homeowners Association, Inc. & JaMar, Inc., 2819 Crystal Drive, Bellevue, requests approval of a Preliminary Plat on a subdivision to be known as Chris Lake Replat II on the following described property, to wit: Being a replatting of part of Tax Lot C and Tax Lot H, located in Sec 28, Twp 13N, Rng 13E of the 6th P.M., Sarpy County, Nebraska. (30th & LaPlatte Road)

Doug Hill, Hill-Farrell Associates, Inc., explained that the Homeowners= Association would like to use these lots as non-residential lots for the residents to build garages. There will be one lot available for a home. That lot sits higher than the others and the house will be built to County guidelines with reference to flood plain regulations, etc.

Cindy Gilbert read into record the letter received from the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resource District (NRD).

Denny Nichols asked if residents could later build a house on one of the outlots.

Cindy Gilbert responded by saying that zoning ordinances will not allow a residence to be built on an outlot.

Tom Wees questioned the ability of the residents to be able to build mini-storage warehouses on those lots in the future.

Cindy Gilbert stated it would not meet the zoning regulations for a residential area.

Wees moved, seconded by Nichols to recommend approval of the Preliminary Plat for Chris Lake Replat II as it meets the subdivision regulations. Ballot: Ayes - Fenster, Hurley, Kunz, Matthies, Nichols, Wear, Wees and Whitfield. Nays - none. Abstain - LaBart. Absent - Buethe. Motion carried.

III. CORRESPONDENCE:

Tamra Madsen informed the commissioners of the zoning actions taken by the County Board at their last meeting. She also noted that an individual had recently filed suit against the City of Gretna in reference to the annexation.

IV. ADJOURNMENT:

Being no further discussion, Matthies moved, seconded by Wees, to adjourn the meeting. By a unanimous oral vote, Chair Meyer declared the meeting adjourned at 8:03 p.m.
