He has the frontage required for the split and the required amount for the duplex along with the required square footage. The commissioners asked about water and power hookups and Karl knows he will have to pay separate hookups for each duplex. He also is aware that only one lot will be able to have irrigation water.

5.         Boundary Line Adjustment located at 25 E 400 N. Submitted by David Peterson.

David Peterson is here seeking to adjust property lines at his parents’ property. He had an engineer draw up an adjustment to the original survey to now give the required setbacks from the sheds to the new proposed property line. Commissioner Lee asked if there are two irrigation meters already on the property and if so, would they have to move them? David replied there are two irrigation risers, but both are located in the front. Commissioner Dickinson asked if they are splitting the property to be able to build on? David answered that by splitting the property he is taking more property for himself, and the rest will be split off and sold to his son. Commissioner Lee noted that they aren’t creating a lot big enough to build on, but they are able to split and absorb the property to create large lots for both David and his son. The commissioners had no other comments or questions. No motion is needed.

6.         Conditional Use License “Posh Pets” located at 365 N 100 W. Submitted by Kristen Heath.
