  1. We are very concerned about the rezoning request to C-1. I feel that it would increase traffic, decrease property values and cause deterioration in our residential environment. I also think the owner of the property significantly decreased the value of his property by not selectively clearing trees so that the property would be more attractive to those who would like to build a home on the site.

    Dear Mr. Heckman:
    I strongly urge the Planning Committee to reject the request to rezone the property listed below from Lake Residential to Neighborhood Commercial.
    The property is located at:
    COM W 14 COR TH E 1347' TH S 10.7' TO POB THE S 69 DEG 38'7" E 806.69' TH S13 DEG 25'15"W 183.64' TH N 60 DEG 36'21" W 289.96' TH S 86 DEG 31'59" W304.83 THS 71 DEG 06'20" W 169.25' TH N 390.18' TO POB SEC 12 T2N R31W(2018) SPLIT/COMBINED ON 2/22/2018 FROM 01-012-020-00, 01-012-011-00.
    I co-own property at 2475 Pt. Lorraine Drive with my brother John Hudson. My family has owned this cottage since 1976. I have been visiting and enjoying Miner Lake for over forty-eight years. It has always been a safe, clean place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty with family and friends.
    Rezoning commercial will dramatically change the landscape and deteriorate the natural environment. The additional traffic of a business will overwhelm the single, small road to the property and cause additional stress on the lake itself. We do not have proper roads, water or sewers to handle this without causing significant damage to the surrounding properties such as mine. If you approve, I would expect additional noise, traffic, pollution as well as increased flooding on my property as a result of the build. I urge you to consider the needs of the current property owners and reject the proposal.

  4. What was the result of this hearing? Why were some residents not notified “depending on proximity”?
