       Resident David Dillman of 6029 County Highway A, Brooklyn inquired if he would be able to build another house on his property. Mr. Dillman had two driveways on the five acre parcel and would sell his existing house to his son to build a bermed home on the A-1 Exclusive zoned property. The Plan Commission members shared that this would create a sub-standard parcel and the acreage would not support a land split for the purpose of building.
