Councilman Sticka made a motion to approve the May 2, 2022, Zoning Meeting Minutes and Councilwoman Splichal seconded the motion. All in favor. Motion carried. DIANE PROCIVE: Ms. Procive was present to discuss a parcel of land (60 acres) that she is the trustee of and would like to address some zoning concerns for the property. The council reviewed the plat map and Mr. Zent answered her questions regarding the zoning of the property. There are four tracts of land, which still meets the requirements for a minor subdivision. Mr. Zent recommended they attend the next zoning meeting and begin the rezoning of the parcel of land to rural residential. The rezoning application needs to complete and submitted to the city auditor along with signatures of the property owners that border the property boundaries within three hundred feet of the parcel, the plat map, and fees. When this information is turned into the auditor, we can schedule a zoning meeting to review the rezoning request. BERNIE BINSTOCK: Mr. Binstock was present to approach the council about having the restricted covenants revised on the lots by the golf course to allow residents to build additional garages or larger detached structures on their lots. Mr. Zent explained the city put the restricted covenants on lots and it does not allow any detached structures bigger than 200 square feet and does not allow for additional garages. To change these is a lengthy process and costly. Attorneys would need to be involved in the process, signatures from all property owners in the subdivision and they all need to be in favor of the change to the covenants. Then you could begin the process of revising the covenants. Mr. Binstock also brought up the manufactured home that is being set on one of Wayne Kuntz’s lots in the Kuntz Addition subdivision and the hay that is setting on property zoned as residential. Mr. Zent informed him Mr. Kuntz has no covenants on the lots he has for sale so this home is allowed in a residentially zoned area since it will be set on a full basement with an attached garage. The city did inform Mr. Kuntz the remaining lots will have to follow the covenants that are in place on the golf course lots. The council discussed the hay bales on Wayne Kuntz’s property and will discuss the matter with him and inform him the bales need to be removed off the property since the property as residential.
