Planning Commission adopts new zone map

By Sheryl Roadcap -

SIDNEY — The Sidney City Planning Commission re-elected Tom Ehler to chair, David Gross to vice chair and adopted the new zoning map at Monday night’s meeting.

As apart of other new business, the board unanimously approved the request of Britt Havenar, on behalf of Eric Mees, for the replat of two lots to create one new lot at 245 W. North St., in the multi-family residence district. The purpose of the replat is to combine the lots into one for the residential structure and accessory garage. According to Community Services Director Barbara Dulworth, the need for the replat came to light during the construction of a deck, which crossed the property line.

Also, the request of Choice One Engineering, on behalf of Norcold Inc., was also unanimously approved for the replat of two lots to create two new lots at the southeast corner of Campbell Road and Kuther Road in the general industrial district. This replat will transfer a strip of land, approximately 160-feet-wide, from one property to another and to vacate utility easements along the lot line. Norcold has plans to add to their building on South Kuther Road, which was not allowed because it crossed the current property line.

There also was a public hearing and review for the adoption of the updated zone map of new district map changes. It was last adopted on July 7, 2014.
