Ms Stout asked if there was only one property adjoining his, Mr. Taggart explained that all other adjoining properties were in the county.

Mr. Newcomb asked if Mr. Taggart had considered requesting a Conditional Use Permit.  Mr. Taggart stated that since his property was in the Land Use as potential Commercial Property, that this was what he had decided to ask for.  He said that he understood we had no Light Commercial planning area.  He said his neighbor was concerned about what would possibly come in later under commercial zoning.

Ms Stout pointed out that under the new Home Occupation Ordinance, this should qualify.  She asked Mr. Hawkins if she was correct in this.  Mr. Hawkins stated as long as the use meets the criteria, then yes, it would.  He had provided Mr. Taggart with a copy of the criteria.

Mr. Taggart stated that looking over the qualifications, that he liked that option.  He stated he would prefer to go that way and not ask for a rezoning at this time.

Steve Winkler asked to come forward.  He stated he feels the property should be rezoned and that we should follow the future plan use.
