Major county rule changes need scrutiny (05/15/2013)
From: Doug Nopar

When it comes to the proposed significant changes in the County’s land use protections, Winona County needs to slow down. Do we really want to get rid of the 1000 foot setback requirement for new and expanding livestock facilities over 300 animal units? Passed in 1998, this rule keeps large feedlots from locating too close to existing farms and homes. Do we really want to get rid of bluff land protections passed in 2010? These rules keep homes from building too close to the edge of the bluff. The local debates about these land use rules took years to resolve. The results were the product of negotiation and compromise on all sides. Before there’s a date set for any public hearing on these proposals, there needs to be a full public discussion and complete understanding of the effects these changes would have on the character of the county.
