Tom Salkowski, Planning & Zoning Administrator, requested the Board accept the Findings and Recommendations of the Planning Commission for denial of the following rezoning and authorize signatures on the Notice and Order of Denial: Doug Hoskins (Rockford Township)-Planning Commission recommends denial of the request to rezone from AG & S-2 to A/R & S-2. The property is located on the north end of Dean Lake. As neither the applicant nor a representative was present for discussion, Salkowski said he will mail the applicant a copy of the action taken by the Board. If the Board is willing to accept the Findings & Recommendations of the Planning Commission, the motion would be to accept the Findings as the Boards and deny the rezoning. Russek serves on the Planning Commission. He said after the site inspection, it was found the property does not meet the County’s criteria for rezoning. Russek moved to accept the Findings and Recommendations to deny the rezoning and to authorize signatures on the Notice and Order of Denial. The motion was seconded by Eichelberg and carried 5-0.
