AREA PLAN

Joe Rogers, Director, said that the CDC property is currently zoned incorrectly and he recommends that the commissioners have rezoned.

Mr. Rogers said that the original parcel was zoned L1. When the parcel was split off the lake front was split off as the parcel that doesn’t have any zoning, and the CDC property was zoned as L1. The use of this site is not compatible with the current zoning.

Mr. Rogers said that the request of change needs to be submitted by a resolution requesting the Area Plan Commission for consideration of changing the rezoning. He recommends changing the rezoning to a B2. This will bring the Information Booth and the CDC property to the correct zoning.

  • Commissioner Diener made a motion to approve Resolution #13-02-04-01 requesting to rezone the county property from an L1 to a B2, seconded by Commissioner Burton. Vote: Unanimous

RESOLUTION NO. 13-02-04-01

Resolution of the Board of Commissioners of White County, Indiana, for Rezoning of County – Owned Property

WHEREAS, certain real estate owned by White County, located at 5053 Norway Road, Monticello, Indiana, is currently used by the Comprehensive Development Center (CDC) and Lakes Information Booth; and

WHEREAS, said property is zoned “L-1” under the White County Zoning Ordinance which zoning is inappropriate for the currently non-conforming for such use of said property; and

WHEREAS, the White County Commissioners desire said property to be rezoned to “B-2” in order that the current use of said property conform with the White County Zoning Ordinance.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED by the White County Commissioners that the White County Area Plan Commission rezone said property located at 5053 Norway Road, Monticello, Indiana (Tax I.D. #014-38780-00) from “L-1” to “B-2.”

RANDY MILLER & ASSOCIATES

Jason Miller, President, gave a presentation to the commissioner on how they can help the county become compliant with the new American with Disabilities Act. He explained that the federal government is now requiring us to sign documents annually saying that we are in compliance with the ADA. If this is not done, grant applications from White County could be denied.

Mr. Miller said that they can put a proposal together based on the needs of their services from the county. They will need to know if the county wants them to handle the evaluation and assessment of all the buildings, the bridges, put together a transition plan, include an evaluation of a schedule and cost estimate, etc. They can provide a lump sum cost to do everything, they can do an hourly rate, or they can put together an ala carte cost plan for individual jobs.

The commissioners asked Mr. Miller to get with Mike Kyburz, ADA Coordinator, and put an ala carte proposal together breaking down the different aspects for their next meeting.

GIS

Eric Storm, County IT, said that he has seven companies wanting to put in a proposal for the county’s GIS website. He is currently in the process of collecting those and he will discuss them with the commissioners at a later date.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There being no further business to come before the board, their meeting was adjourned.
