PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION
January 10, 2013
The meeting of the Planning and Zoning commission of the Village of Brooklyn was called to order in the Brooklyn Village Hall at 6:37pm by Chairperson Nadine Walsten. Commissioners present were John McNaughton, Todd Klahn, Nissin Rodriguez, and Dorothy Frandy. Dale Arndt had an excused absence. Also present was Deputy Clerk Kim Brewer and Lyle & Ann Wanless.
Public Hearing was called to order at 6:37pm regarding re-zoning the parcel referred to as “Exhibit A” from “Ag-Exclusive 1” to “Business Park” as stated in Public Hearing notice. Brewer reported that there was one written comment received in the Clerk’s office from Brooklyn resident Jerry Sliter dated January 4th. Mr. Sliter expressed concerns/opposition over the Business Park’s location. Lyle & Ann Wanless, who live on Highway 92 directly across from the proposed Business Park, were present to ask questions but also to generally show their support of this project.
Motion: Frandy/Klahn to close Public Hearing at 7:07pm. Carried.
Recommendation from Public Hearing: Motion: Klahn/Frandy to recommend to the Village Board the re-zoning of the land purchased for the Business Park from “Ag-Exclusive 1” to “Business Park”. Motion carried.
There was an informal proposal by a Brooklyn Village property owner to re-zone outlot #2 CSM #7110 of Brooklyn Sunrise Estates from Agricultural to Single Family High Density. This was requested so that the owner could more easily sell this lot as residential. The Commission discussed this proposal and had a couple of concerns. The lot is just barely 70ft wide which would make it non-conforming to the existing single family medium density zoning that surrounds it. It would have to be zoned as high density and there is no other high density zoning nearby which would make it “spot zoning”. Also it is a very awkward lot, (long and narrow). The driveway would have to be on North Kerch St and the backyard backing up to North Rutland Avenue. The overall consensus by the Commission was that this should not be re-zoned to single-family high density for the property owner that wants to sell it. It should remain at the current zoning of Agriculture for the time being. Motion: Frandy/McNaughton and carried. Klahn abstained.
The minutes from 12/10/12 were postponed for approval until the next meeting due to not having a quorum from that meeting to approve them.
Adjourn: Motion McNaughton/Rodriguez to adjourn at 7:26pm. Carried.
