REZONING – 2000 FEET EAST OF COTTONMILL AVENUE AND 2000 FEET SOUTH OF 56TH STREET

 

Mayor Hadley opened the public hearing on the application submitted by Mitch Humphrey from Buffalo Surveying (Applicant) for Edward James Foley and Sharolyn Kay Foley (Owner) to rezone from “District AG, Agricultural District” to “District RR-1, Rural Residential District (Rural Standards)” property described as a tract of land being part of the Southeast Quarter of the Northwest Quarter of Section 29, Township 9 North, Range 16 West of the 6th P.M., containing 20.091 acres, more or less, Buffalo County, Nebraska (2000 feet east of Cottonmill Avenue and 2000 feet south of 56th Street). Planning Commission recommends approval.

 

The applicant is requesting rezoning of a rural parcel located in the City’s two-mile extra-territorial jurisdiction approximately 2,000 feet east of Cottonmill Avenue and 2,000 feet south of 56th Street.  This land is located south of Buffalo Hills Subdivision, a subdivision approved by Buffalo County that the City has since “inherited” as the extra-territorial jurisdiction grows progressively larger.  The applicant plans to build one house on the 20 plus acre parcel.

 

The tract contains 20.091 acres and therefore is exempt from subdivision requirements since state law does not require parcels greater than 10 acres to be included in a subdivision.  The land is currently zoned Agricultural and rezoning to RR-1 is required to accommodate the proposed use, rural residential.  Staff concurs that RR-1 is the appropriate zoning for this site.

 

Mitch Humphrey was present to answer any questions from the Council.

 

There was no one present in opposition to this hearing.

 

Moved by Kearney seconded by Clouse to close the hearing and approve the application submitted by Mitch Humphrey from Buffalo Surveying (Applicant) for Edward James Foley and Sharolyn Kay Foley (Owner) to rezone from “District AG, Agricultural District” to “District RR-1, Rural Residential District (Rural Standards)” property described as a tract of land being part of the Southeast Quarter of the Northwest Quarter of Section 29, Township 9 North, Range 16 West of the 6th P.M., containing 20.091 acres, more or less, Buffalo County, Nebraska (2000 feet east of Cottonmill Avenue and 2000 feet south of 56th Street). Roll call resulted as follows: Aye: Hadley, Lear, Clouse, Kearney, Buschkoetter. Nay: None. Motion carried.
