Agenda for the next Joint Planning Commission meeting

The public is invited to attend an upcoming meeting of a Madison County government agency where tax dollars may be spent.

WHAT: Madison County Joint Planning Commission.

WHEN: Thursday 16 February, 7.00pm

WHERE: Madison County Joint Zoning and Planning Department, 1112 Bonita Drive, Norfolk.

AGENDA HIGHLIGHTS: The Commissioners have a lengthy agenda, including two public hearings related to declaring an area with Newman Grove run-down and substandard. The first public hearing is to consider what is known as Proposed Redevelopment Area B, which is 26 acres, declared degraded and substandard. Includes an application to Dan Evans for an approximately 9.5-acre tract located north of the intersection of Second Street and East Lilac Avenue for a housing subdivision. The preliminary document is known to Timber Claim Acres.

The other public hearing concerns the redevelopment of Area B in Newman Grove.

The final public hearing is to receive public comments regarding Werner Construction’s application for a conditional use permit for a temporary asphalt plant on property near the intersection of Highway 32 and 557 Avenue.

Also during the meeting, the Joint Planning Committee will receive an update on Madison County’s comprehensive plan from Bobbi Pettit of Five Rule Rural Planning. Additionally, the Joint Planning Commission is expected to receive an update from Summit Carbon Solutions on a proposed carbon pipeline.

Finally, the joint planning commission should discuss a future modification of the planning regulation to define a house and its characteristics.

PUBLIC INPUT: Commissioners encourage discussion in public hearings, which are led by the President. Time may be limited on a case-by-case basis. If someone has an issue to discuss that is not on the agenda, they are encouraged to speak with Heather McWhorter, the zone administrator or committee members prior to the meeting so that the issue can be added to the agenda . No action can be taken by the commissioners on matters not publicized and on the agenda.

Remember, government works best when citizens are informed and engaged. Attending government agency public meetings is a great way to do this.
