THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Crivitz Continues Discussions To Update Zoning Ordinance
Issue Date: November 29, 2017
Crivitz"During a meeting of the Crivitz Development Committee on Nov. 22, discussion took place regarding various possible changes to the phrasing of the zoning ordinance. New definitions being looked at are for Home Occupation, Accessory Buildings, Swimming Pools, Plastic Storage Sheds, Lot size, Condos, Bed & Breakfasts, Undeveloped Lots, Utilities, and Mini-Warehouses. New definitions will include, but not be limited to: size, placement, and usage.
Some of the discussion addressed the question of allowing wording of the ordnance to allow for warehouses and mini warehouses to locate within the central business district of the village. Currently there is a temporary moratorium prohibiting warehouses to be placed within the central business district of the village. The possible new definition of mini warehouse would be a building consisting of units that are leased or owned for the storage of business and household goods or contractor supplies. Currently there are two warehouses located in this district, not including a large newer warehouse which was constructed within the last 5 years.
Discussion of placing within the definition the location of future warehouses and mini warehouses took place. Dave Malke, a local citizen who was in attendance, suggested that each request for a warehouse or mini warehouse be considered independent and that Conditional Use Permit be added to the definition. This would allow the Board to issue a special permit to a property owner to make use of real property in a manner allowed under current zoning regulations, but only in accordance with conditions to be applied by the zoning authority.
Village President John Deschane, instructed Marilyn Padgett, Clerk/Treasurer to add Conditional Use Permit to the notes to Dick Boren, the Village Attorney, for his review. Also, Allan Harvey of Community Code Service will receive a copy of possible changes. Harvey has been contracted by the village to assist with the updates of the zoning code.
Before any permanent changes can be made to the zoning ordinances which are currently in place, a public hearing will be necessary.
