1. Barry Gottsch, 23332 Fishery Road, Gretna, requests approval of a Special Use Permit to dredge sand and gravel on the following described property, to wit: That part of the SW1/4 of the SW1/4, Section 2, lying south of Fishery Road;

AND that part of Tax Lot 1, Tax Lot 5 and Tax Lot 6, and the SE1/4 all in Section 3, lying south of Fishery Road and east of Interstate I-80 right-of-way;

AND ALSO that part of Government Lot 1, Section 9, lying east of the I-80 right-of-way;

AND ALSO Tax Lots B, C, H1 and Government Lots 1, 3A and 4, all in Section 10;

AND ALSO Tax Lots B, H and Government Lot 4 and that part of the NE1/4 of the NW1/4 lying south of Fishery Road, all in Section 11, all of the above parcels located in Twp 12N, Rng 10E of the 6th P.M., Sarpy County, Nebraska;

TOGETHER WITH the abutting N1/2 of the Platte River, all in Sarpy County, Nebraska. (Approximately 222nd & Fishery Road)

Pat Sullivan introduced himself as the attorney representing Barry Gottsch for his application in obtaining a Special Use Permit to dredge sand and gravel. He indicated that, in his conversation with Tom Lynam, some concerns about where the traffic was being routed was discussed. Pat then presented an amended operational plan to include revisions for alternate truck routes and applying dust inhibitors.

Cindy Gilbert read into record the letter from the Papio-Missouri River NRD.

Paul Woodward, NRD, stated that the letter written was amended from an earlier letter. (Copies had been previously passed out to the Planning Commissioners) Paul stated that a topographical survey of that part of the land that lies within the flood way would need to be done along with a final survey at the end of the operation to ensure that the elevations had not been raised in the flood way area.

Mr. Sullivan said his client would agree to have the survey done. He added that noise in this area should not be much of a problem as Mr. Gottsch owns most of the land in the area.

Chair Meyer asked about operating hours.

Pat responded by saying that the hours that dredging would occur could be as much as 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The transportation hours would be approximately 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. probably 6 days a week. He indicated they were asking for as much flexibility as possible.

Tom Hurley asked Ken Tex what his feelings and concerns were for this application.

Ken Tex stated that this was not submitted in a timely fashion, that he doesn=t know what was submitted to Tom Lynam or the NRD, and that he had not seen the operational plan until Tuesday and finally talked to Tom Lynam and Paul Woodward on Tuesday afternoon.

Mr. Sullivan said, although he admitted it was not done in a real timely fashion, he also stated they are on a time limit as well and the amended operational plan is consistent with what Tom Lynam, County Surveyor and Paul Woodward, NRD are asking for. He continued by asking Mr. Tex if he had any other concerns.

Ken=s response was that they did not have a topographical survey complete yet and is concerned that the grading, when complete, will exceed the current elevation.

Brenda Kunz asked approximately how long this operation will be in existence.

Barry Gottsch indicated it could be up to 30 years, but added that approximately one-third of the operation could be complete in about three years.

Denny Nichols asked what kind of power poles were sitting in the middle of this plat of land.

Barry stated that these were transmission lines and they would be staying about 100' away from them as required.

Tom Hurley asked Pat Sullivan who he was talking about when he kept referring to the Acontractors@.

Pat said the Acontractors@ are the customers buying the product from the applicant.

Buethe moved, seconded by Matthies to recommend approval of a Special Use Permit to dredge sand and gravel as it meets land use and zoning regulations. Ballot: Ayes - Buethe, Fenster, LaBart, Matthies, Nichols and Wear. Nays - Hurley and Kunz. Abstain - none. Absent - Wees and Whitfield. Motion carried.

2. Dennis Disberger, 22775 Harrison Street, Gretna, requests approval of a Change of Zone from AG to AGR & AGD on the following described property, to wit: Being a platting of Tax Lot 1B, located in the NW1/4 of Sec 14, Twp 14N, Rng 10E of the 6th P.M., Sarpy County, Nebraska. (Approximately 226th & Harrison)

Ken Tex explained that they had originally submitted a plat with one five acre lot and one 15 acre lot. In the interim, however, Mr. Disberger found someone who wanted to buy the house with10 acres. New maps were delivered, but not in time to be mailed to the Planning Commission. Ken passed around the new plat maps for the Commissioners review. The zone change will not need to include AAGR@ as it won=t have a 5 acre lot anymore.

Dennis Disberger added that he worked for Caterpillar and was being transferred to Illinois. Cat has a policy that prohibits them from buying more than 5 acres for their employees to relocate. That was the reason for the 5 acre piece in the first place. Now that he has a buyer for the house and 10 acres, he can keep the other 10 acres for himself when he is able to return to Sarpy County.

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

3. Dennis Disberger, 22775 Harrison Street, Gretna, requests approval of a Preliminary/Final Plat to be known as The View on the following described property, to wit: Being a platting of Tax Lot 1B, located in the NW1/4 of Sec 14, Twp 14N, Rng 10E of the 6th P.M., Sarpy County, Nebraska. (Approximately 226th & Harrison)

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

4. Ross Rossell (with Dean Fornoff), 16115 Buffalo Road, Springfield, 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 N1/2 of the NE1/4 of Sec 3, Twp 12N, Rng 11E of the 6th P.M., Sarpy County, Nebraska. (Approximately 161st & Buffalo Road)

Ross Rossell stated that, financially, he needed to sell some of the land and he and Dean Fornoff had worked out the plat with each of them taking about 10 acres.

Ken Tex went on to show the existing access to the property from Buffalo Road and stated that the plat shows the additional dedicated right-of-way for the County road.

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

5. Ross Rossell (with Dean Fornoff), 16115 Buffalo Road, Springfield, requests approval of a Preliminary/Final Plat to be known as Rose Hill on the following described property, to wit: Being a platting of part of the N1/2 of the NE1/4 of Sec 3, Twp 12N, Rng 11E of the 6th P.M., Sarpy County, Nebraska.
