25 April 2005 Dearborn County Plan Commission Meeting Notes

Present: Present: Mark Mitter, Chairman, Jeff Hughes, Patrick de Maynadier, Tarry Feiss, Dennis Kraus, Jr., Jane Ohlmansiek, Robert Laws, and Mike Hall. Absent: Nick Held and Arnie McGill, Att’y
Also present: Travis Miller, Planning Director, and Mark McCormack, Enforcement Officer.

Meeting started late at 7:15 PM.

1. Ag Section Adjoining Highway Interchange on SR1 between Dover and St. Leon Given Favorable Recommendation for Zone Change.
Zone change from A to H-1 (Highway Interchange) for 1.53 acres on SR1 in Kelso Township for a small engine shop. Owner- Anthony Bischoff. Surveyor presenting: Dennis Kraus, Sr.
Dennis Kraus, Jr, and Tarry Feiss stepped down from the board due to conflict of interest on this item.
No public comment. This item was evaluated as a worse case scenario, because no plans for the engine shop were submitted. These will be done at Primary approval per the applicant. Zone change was seen as being compatible with the master plan due to other structures of similar character in the vicinity, adequate infrastructure, encouragement of mixed uses in this area, and encouragement of new business for increased tax base.
Hall motioned and de Maynadier 2nd to pass a Favorable recommendation to the commissioners for a zone change to H-1.

2. Second item removed from agenda.


1. Cul de sacs were further discussed and will be readvertised for a decision at May meeting. Final conclusion is to use the definition as staff recommended.
[NOTE: I left the meeting at this point- the rest of these notes are from info given by the Planning Office.]

2. Traffic Impact Study will be modified to reflect a change that a developer may finance their own study, but they also have to finance the engineering consultant that the county hires to evaluate their study. Pre-ap process for developers will include a need, scope, schedule, and fee for the developer to sign off on- regardless of which route the developer chooses to pursue regarding the study.
This will be readvertised for May meeting for decision.

3. Fee schedule changes show increases across the board. Final decision at May meeting to be effective June 1st. There will be some modification to clear up discrepancies in fees for minor sub’n that require major sub’n review because of a variance, etc.

4. Fiscal model - $500 was approved from master plan budget for Financial services Group of Bloomington to do a workshop possibly in May (at working session May 18th).

Working sessions are typically on the 3rd Wed of each month. If anyone plans to attend- they should call the Planning Office to verify this agenda and date.
