Language to be amended is listed below:

  • Section 22 – subdivision regulations:  The below amendment is to add language in the zoning ordinance that is consistent with MN administrative rules 6120.3500 subpart 3 which would pertain to platted subdivisions. The amendment creates language to the roles of the Planning Commission when considering platted subdivisions so that variances from the official controls are not needed to use the lots for their intended uses.  The Planning Commission shall evaluate limiting factors for site development prior to approval.

  • Section 22-subdivision regulations: Correction of 22.1100 subpart c. which references to 22.2100 subpart a. or 22.2100 subpart b. which should be amended to describe 22.1100 subpart a. and 22.1100 subpart b.
