The Wauneta Planning Commission met Monday, Jan. 13 to discuss a resolution to allow the placement of private, noncommercial storage buildings on vacant residential lots.

In addition to allowing the private, noncommercial storage buildings to be put up on vacant lots the resolution also hopes to bring some of the zoning for residential districts to come into more harmony, according to Village Superintendent Bill Bischoff.

The resolution also changes the front yard set-back requirement for all buildings, accept accessory buildings to 25 feet, previously 30 feet. It will also change the maximum height for secondary buildings to 25 feet, previously 45 feet.

After discussion the resolution was voted on and approved. It will move on to seek approval by the Village Board at its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 14.

Because the Village Board meeting takes place after the copy deadline for the Jan. 16 issue of the Wauneta Breeze, the results of the Village Board meeting will be reported in the Jan. 23 issue.

Planning commission members include Chad DeWester, Joyce Grimm, Kenneth Lawless, Laurie Maris and Mandi Kramer. All but DeWester were present at the meeting. Village Board member Page Johnston was also present at the meeting.
