This item is to consider recommending approval of a Rezone Map Amendment request from Reesman's Excavating & Grading, Inc. for property located at 808 and 892 McHenry Street. The
applicant is requesting to rezone the property from A-1, Agricultural/Holding District to Q-1, Quarrying/Extractive and M-2, General Manufacturing District. The applicant requests to allow
extraction/non-metallic mining and future industrial development.
Reesman’s has also applied for a Conditional Use Permit to allow for Excavating & Grading to conduct a mining and quarrying operation that includes material extraction, crushing of gravel & stone, washing of extracted materials, and recycling of material (no blasting). A significant amount of material will be extracted and processed, resulting in notable grade changes on the property. Long-term plans are to create a stormwater detention pond on the site that will serve the surrounding area. Following the conclusion of mining operations on the property, it will be available for redevelopment for light industrial uses consistent with the nearby industrial park.
This item was discussed at the October 11, 2022 Plan Commission Public Hearing and is scheduled for further discussion at the Tuesday, November 1, 2022 Committee of the Whole meeting, and at the Wednesday, November 9, 2022 Plan Commission Public Hearing continuation. Both meetings are held at 6:30 pm within the Council Chambers at 224 E. Jefferson Street.
A Rezone Public Hearing will be held before the Common Council at 6:30 p.m. or shortly thereafter on Tuesday, November 15, 2022 in Council Chambers located at the Police Department, 224 E. Jefferson Street.
