Public Hearing Notice 9/19 - NEW Farmland Preservation Districts

Monday, September 9, 2013 - 11:20pm

*NEW* Farmland Preservation Zoning Districts
The St. Croix County Community Development Committee will hold a public hearing on Thursday, September 19, 2013 at 5:15 p.m. or immediately thereafter, at the Hudson Government Center’s County Board Room, 1101 Carmichael Road, Hudson, Wisconsin, to consider the following:
1) St. Croix County’s comprehensive revision of the zoning ordinance. Specific changes include the repeal and reenactment of Agricultural Zoning Districts; Sections 17.14 and 17.145, applicable definition additions; Section 17.09, and Administrative rezoning requirements within the Agricultural Districts found within Section 17.70 of the St. Croix County Code of Ordinances.
The meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m. with a hearing at 5:15 p.m. on a Rezoning. Immediately following, the public hearing on the new proposed Farmland Preservation Zoning Districts will begin, with County staff providing a short presentation and answering questions before public comments are heard.
In order to preserve farmland while maintaining state certification, the draft ordinance addresses all the requirements of Chapter 91, Wis. Statutes as well as the administrative rules of Draft ATCP 49. This zoning revision is considered an implementation stage consistent with several critical policies of the adopted St. Croix County’s Farmland Preservation Plan and St. Croix County’s Comprehensive Plan 2012-2035.
Copies of the draft ordinance, planning documents and related maps and appendices are available at the Community Development Department, Government Center, Hudson and the Agriculture Service & Education Center, Baldwin. The documents may also be viewed or downloaded from the St. Croix County website at: presplan.
Oral and written comments will be accepted through the end of the hearing. Comments may also be submitted prior to, or at the hearing, in person, by mail, fax or email to:
