Following the public hearing of the Reliance town planning commission Monday, Feb. 2, the committee approved recommending to the Town Board to add 18 additional conditional uses and to change the language of section 1117 of the town’s zoning ordinance to read as follows: "The Board of Adjustment on a two thirds majority vote may waive the building permit, conditional use, or variance expiration requirements when such restrictions are deemed a hindrance to the planned development of property."
Public input was taken from the residents attending, and Brian McGinnis of Third District Planning and Development helped the committee clarify and answer questions regarding the process involved in rezoning property.
The Board also addressed two requests from property owners Gale Raymond and Brad & Warren Karlen to rezone their property along the railroad from residential to commercial.
Property owners Ryan and Tammy LeCompte, who live along 6th Ave, announced to the committee members that they had sold their property that would be encompassed by the commercial property if the committee recommended the rezoning take place and plan to move their house.
After more discussion regarding zoning requests, Shane Reis moved to rezone current property of Brad & Warren Karlen and property of Gale Raymond to commercial, Tom Perry gave second, motion carried. Commission member Gale Raymond abstained from voting.
The Planning Commission recommendations will be given to the Reliance Town Board for public hearing which will be held February 16, 2015 @ 7:00 PM.
"The city will have the final say now," said commission member Shane Ries.
Ries added that if the city approves the recommendations any future building permits submitted for the property will have to meet the conditional use language before being approved.
"We’re just trying to do as much as possible to be prepared for whatever comes with the upgrade of the railroad," said Ries. "This action will help protect residents."
