4.         Consider additional development to the Monroe Canyon RV Park. Submitted by Jordan Mills.

Jordan Mills has an open corner on his property that is located out of the well head protection area that he would like to develop with cabin/silo rentals.  He would like to do 5 small silos and 5 small cabins. He is looking for preapproval from the planning commission to start on his project even though it isn’t going to happen immediately. Commissioner Lee asked that Jordan draw up where the cabins would be settled and how much space would be used for each rental.  Commissioner Lee also mentioned that the planning commission traded rv spots for cabin spots at another rv area. Jordan has 12 acres available where cabins can be located which gives him plenty of space for property setbacks and septic lines. The question was asked if the rentals will be long term. Jordan let the commissioners know that the cabins will be rented out yearlong but as short-term rentals only. Jordan expressed concerns about the septic system and asked if the health department tells him what to do or if the city tells him. He was informed the septic questions all have to go through the county health department. Jordan also told the commissioners that all the cabins/silos will have to be engineered and he is in the process of getting those approved. He will be back at a future meeting with a more set plan in place to present to the commissioners.  

5.            Discuss property development for 701 S Jones Rd. – Trevor Call 

Trevor is here looking to develop property that is located in the wellhead protection zone. The parcel sits in the wellhead protection zone 2 and 3 with a few acres completely out of the wellhead zone. After reviewing the proposed drawing that was presented to the commissioners, Commissioner Lee said he wasn’t sure there would be enough space to do the 6 units but to get the health department involved and see what they would permit as far as septic systems go. Commissioner Lee also mentioned that the units in zone 2 would not be permitted. Trevor is going to do a little more research and follow up with the planning commission after he visits with the health department.
