Chairman Collyard called the Special Town Board Meeting to order at 6:00PM

Present were Board Members Dixie Chermack, Dick Collyard, Donna Porter and Chris Webb.   Also present was Patrick Bielfuss, Cedarcorp, Tim Kane, UW Extension Agency, Dave Pease and Lee Wiesner. The agenda was as follows:

1)         Discuss concerns of the land use mapping progress

Chairman Collyard gave an overview of what the Comprehensive Land Use Committee

had been doing the last few months. They seemed to be stuck and could not make any progress

on the land use portion of the plan. Collyard pointed out that there were three areas of land that

needed to be focused on: Residential, Forestry and Commercial, and forget trying to micro-

manage the land use.  He talked about the Plan Commission and the Town Board Chairman

will be the person who will appoint the persons on the Commission.  They would be the first

step in the zoning process for the town, giving their recommendations to the Town Board on

zoning issues. Collyard also asked Patrick Bielfuss to take more of a leadership roll in the

committee.  Patrick needed to remind the committee not to get so hung-up on the smaller

parcels and focus on the larger areas.  Lee Wiesner said he had a suggestion he would present

to the committee at its meeting. 

The meeting was adjourned at 6:20PM 


Respectfully Submitted,
