Planning and Zoning Minutes

September 16, 2014
7:00 pm

             The Bowman County Planning and Zoning met in regular session on September 16, 2014. Chairman Jeffers called the meeting to order at 7:03 PM in the Dakota Room of the Bowman County Courthouse. Members present: Jerry Jeffers, Dallas Whittet, Lynn Brackel, John Soreide, Mike Sondeland, Dr. Charles Whitney, Ken Steiner, and Rory Teigen, Zoning Director.  Members absent: Grace Wood and Robb Pierce.

            Brackel made a motion to approve the minutes from the July 15, 2014 meeting, with Soreide seconding the motion. Motion carried.

            Old Business: None

            The first order of business was a Conditional Use request from Cory Blazer to place a non-agricultural dwelling on an agricultural zoned district. This is a tract located in the NW ¼ of Section 27, Township 131, Range 103W and is approximately 8.3 acres. With no opposition expressed, Soreide made a motion to approve, with Steiner seconding the motion, and upon a vote, the motion was carried.

            Discussion was held on provisions for excavation, mining and hauling sand, gravel, rock, stone, scoria and clay. Teigen will contact representatives from Dunn and Stark County for discussion on agreements that they utilize and report back.

            Chairman Jeffers asked for a volunteer to serve as the Bowman County Zoning Board representative to the Roosevelt Custer Regional Council.   No one volunteered at this time.

            There being no further business to discuss, Sondeland made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:45 PM. Soreide seconded the motion, and upon a vote, the motion was carried unanimously.


Respectively Submitted,

Sandra K. Tivis (s)
