Consider Public Comment re: Petition #9511 by Capital Investments Inc. to change the zoning from RH-3 Rural Homes to R-1 Residential on property located East and South of 1835 Yelk Road in part of Section 12 & 13. Dan Birrenkott representing Dennis Midthun of Capital Investments stated that they are asking to rezone for 3 splits available at this time. They would like to have a total of 5 splits on this parcel and will apply for the additional splits next year. Dan pointed out the composite report by Dane County Zoning recommends deed restricting the lots prohibiting further division. As it is their intention to split lot 4 next year he asked that the Board not act on that recommendation. Discussion centered on the developer’s agreement and the tile that goes through the property. Clerk Quick will work on the developer’s agreement.

Consider and Take Action re: Petition #9511 by Capital Investments. Supervisor Doug Yelk also a plan commission member stated that the plan commission unanimously approved this petition; however, there were concerns.

  1. The road must be in before the lots are developed.
  2. Issue with tile that goes through the property.

As these issues will be addressed in the developer’s agreement it was moved by Doug Yelk, second by Vernon Pogue to approve petition #9511 by Capital Investment Inc. to change the zoning from RH-3 Rural Homes to R-1 Residential. The developer’s agreement will be finalized before the CSM is signed.
