Supervisor tie vote delays subdivision action

By Mary Zielinski

The 2-2 supervisor vote Tuesday delayed any action for the proposed two-lot Spense Subdivision at 1930 179th Street, Wellman. As a result, the issue was tabled to “a future meeting” to allow time for more information regarding DNR rules.

During the Public Hearing prior to the vote, Supervisor Jack Seward, Jr. voiced concerns about it listed as agriculture use, which has been the designation of the 2.44 acre plot, when the plan calls for building a residence there. The plot would be divided into two 1.22 acre lots. The plan, approved by the county Planning and Development Department, calls for a residence to be built on one of the lots in a”little more than a year.”

A county resident questioned what problems may arise by having a residence built near a hog lot that already exits on adjoining property. Kelly Dougall, Planning and Development coordinator, said the owners of the proposed development “are aware of the hog lot” and did not appear to have problems with it.
