Chairperson Darryl Weber called the Town of Oregon Plan Commission meeting to order at 6:35 p.m. Motion made by Dave Hagemann and seconded by Paul Morrison to approve the Plan Commission Meeting Minutes from February 28, 2006. Motion carried.
Town of Oregon Property owner Chris Spink inquired if there were any ordinances in the Town against solar panels for the purpose of providing 10,000 watts of solar electricity. The parcel is located off of Harding Street adjoining his dwelling property at 904 County Highway MM. Mr. Spink thought he would construct a 20’ X 40’ shed with either 100 - 2’ X 4’ panels or 50 – 4’ X 4’ panels. The access would be from Harding Street. The property is zoned R-1. The Plan Commission encouraged his efforts and instructed him to also check Dane County for any ordinances, the Town of Oregon was in support of the project. At the time of a public hearing the neighboring properties would be informed of the solar project and would be able to support or oppose the petition at that time.
Residents Howard and Wanda Ace residing at 5624 Lincoln Road inquired about submitting a commercial rezone for the purpose of constructing a mini warehouse for public use. Members of the Plan commission advised the Ace’s that this would require a State Approved Plan. The driveway permit would be a combination with the Village/Town. The Plan Commission recommended that Ace check with Dane County. The parcel would be zoned C-2. This was a location that the Town had looked favorably on for commercial growth.
There was discussion about the Plan commission going to the site of each submittal. The clerk would inform Chairperson Darryl Weber of the submittals received by the clerk’s office. The petitioner would be contacted and a time and date would be set for the site visit. To avoid any quorum issues the information would need to be posted for the public. The clerk would try to set up the site visits prior to the work session meeting.
A motion was made by Sharon Christianson and seconded by Brian Duffin to adjourn the Plan Commission Meeting at 7:45.
