Hogue subdivision. The board accepted the sketch plan for a subdivision of lot 10-4-25 and adjacent. (Motion by Björkman, second by Sensenig, passed 4-0). We classified it as a Minor Subdivision. The proposal is to turn three lots on East Lake Road, currently 60, 55 and 55 ft wide into two lots, 100 and 70 ft wide. That change brings them closer to compliant, and is viewed favorably by the board. The application needs an Environmental Assessment Form and an Agricultural Data Statement before we can proceed. Thereafter we can forward the application to the county and schedule a public hearing for February 28.

The piece will be removed from a large parcel with many hundred feet of frontage.We received the application with the Environmental Assessment Form and Agricultural Data Statement. We will forward it the county and schedule a public hearing for February 28.
