Consider/Take Action re: Rezone petition DCPREZ-2014-10703 request by Jason Geiger to rezone 2.365 acres from A-2 Agricultural to C-2 Commercial to create a self-storage business on lot 2 of CSM 9189 at the northeast corner of the intersection of Town Hall Drive and Hwy 19 in Section 3, Town of Sun Prairie. – The board Chair asked J Geiger to summarize his request for the board members.  J Geiger outlined the plan for mini warehouses; the plan is to build 160 storage units the first year and adding new buildings each year. There were town residents present that also summarized their objections to the project. The board members reviewed the Plan Commission Action Report. Each board member addressed the request stating positive and negative impacts on the town. Consensus of the board was that the parcel is well suited for commercial use, however, the intersection of Hwy 19 & Townhall Dr is already a high accident area and the increase of traffic would heighten the risk for more accidents. The urban service area was addressed along with the water runoff.  Moved by D Yelk, second by V Pogue to deny petition 10703 request by Jason Geiger to rezone 2.365 acres from A-2 Agricultural to C-2 Commercial to create a self-storage business on lot 2 of CSM 9189 at the northeast corner of the intersection of Town Hall Drive and Hwy 19 in Section 3, Town of Sun Prairie.
