Planning notes ...
Polk County’s Planning Commission elected new officers and made plans for a public hearing to adjust the subdivision regulations at last Tuesday’s regular monthly meeting. Two plats were also approved.
An issue with the regulation arose two months ago, when a developer brought in a plat with lots at a 5:1 width to length ratio, much to the surprise of the board members who believed the regulations allowed only for a 3:1 ratio. As it turned out, the regulations contained a misprint, as well ass some other typographical errors. Board members agreed to change the lot ratio back to 3:1 and fix the errors. A public hearing to allow the public input on the changes will be held October 23rd at the Polk County Courthouse in Benton.
Arnold Hambright was elected chairman of the board. Current Chairman Carroll Cate was elected Vice-Chair and current Secretary Stan Moorhouse was re-elected to that position.
