Home replacement sought in shoreland district (11/14/2012)
By Emily Buss
by EMILY BUSS

A Dakota property owner has come forward and asked the Winona County Planning Commission for a conditional use permit (CUP) to build a replacement dwelling in an area of land that is zoned for shoreland and floodplains. Brian and Caryn Stremcha are seeking the CUP to rebuild their home in New Hartford Township that was lost in a fire in March 2012.

The proposed home is to be located approximately 250 feet from Pine Creek, which is designated as a tributary stream. According to Winona County Zoning Ordinance, all structures near a high water area must meet a 100-foot setback. Because the proposed home is located within an area identified as a 100-year floodplain, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources was consulted to assist in the application process.

After planning staff evaluated and assessed the CUP application, they recommended that the petitioners comply with all floodplain regulations and submit an elevation certificate by a registered land surveyor that certifies the finished elevations of the dwelling and garage are in compliance with zoning ordinances.

According to the application, the home would be built at an elevation one foot above the regulatory flood elevation imposed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Other business

The commission will also hear petitions for two CUPs regarding the construction of dwellings on parcels of land with fewer than 40 acres.

Keith and Cheryl Olson of Dakota are petitioning for a single family dwelling in New Hartford Township and Jake Shetler of Utica is seeking a CUP to build a dwelling on a parcel containing fewer than 40 acres.

The commission will discuss the approval of the CUPs during their meeting Thursday, November 15, 2012, at 7 p.m. in the Commissionerís Room in the County Government Center.
