  1. Public Comments.

There were no public comments.


  1. Discussion and possible Action r re: Review of Dane County Draft Zoning Map from Comprehensive Revision.

The plan commission continued their lengthy review of Chapter 10 revision and the zoning map.  They developed a list of questions that need to be answered before reporting back to the county.

  1. Agriculture entertainment is a permitted use in FP-35 under 10 days per calendar year.  Beyond 10 days a CUP is required.  Examples of Agricultura entertainment are listed on page 29 (October 5, 2017).  However, on page 117 some of these same activities are listed as farm related exhibitions with a restriction of 5 days of use in a calendar year.  Please explain.  
  2. The Town of Oregon has some “pick-your-own” operations.  These operations are listed as an activity within agricultural entertainment on page 29 and thus limited to less than 10 days per calendar year of use without a CUP.  Our “pick-your-own” operations have never needed a CUP in the past.  Please explain.
  3. Explain the difference between 1 animal unit per acre (required in RR-M) and ATCP 50 (required in RM-8). 
  4. Can a township use only RM zoning instead of RR zoning or vice versa instead of a combination of these zoning districts?
  5. The Town of Oregon has some rural properties zoned commercial which may no longer be used for commercial use.  Should these property owners be contacted to see if they still want to be zoned commercial and offer to have them rezoned to an appropriate zoning district free of charge (similar like a blanket rezone) if they no longer need the commercial zoning? 


  1. Discussion and Possible Recommendation to the Town Board re: Conservation Subdivision Ordinance, Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) and RH Policy 1f.

No further information presented.


  1. Discussion and Possible Recommendation to the Town Board re: Updates to the Town Comprehensive Plan.

No further information presented.


  1. Communications

The plan commission decided to not schedule a work session in March.


  1. Adjournment.

Hagemann moved, seconded by S. Christensen to adjourn the meeting at 8:35 p.m.  Motion carried 6-0.


Respectfully submitted, 



Jennifer Hanson
