Floor was opened for questions or comments on Non-agenda items:
Letter of Intent Submitted by Cary Hochstatter to create a 25-acre parcel and a 129.3-
acre Parcel from an Existing 154.3 acre Parcel:
Scott Steers, Planning Committee Chairman, opened that the aerial photo of the division
on the Dodge County staff report is incorrect and showed the board the correct division
to include the land leased by the DNR.
He continued that the committee viewed the site on February 3, 2006 and they
recommend the board to deny this land division request. The proposed division exceeds
two acres and is located in agricultural area to be preserved. Scott Steers read the
Dodge County Staff Advisory prepared by Nate Olsen of Dodge County Planning and
Development Department:”The request is not in conformance with the Town Land Use
Plan or the County Comprehensive Plan. In addition, the proposed parcel will result in
the loss of prime agricultural land. Therefore, Staff recommends that the Town deny this
land division request.”
After open floor discussion, Chairman Kirchberg stated that divisions in agricultural areas
are usually not allowed, but if they are allowed for family members they are restricted to
two acres. He asked Mr. Hochstatter to call him if he would like to meet at the site and
view the two acres and for a 500’driveway site clearance.
A motion was made by John Kirchberg, seconded by John Kraus, Jr., to deny this Minor
land Division Letter of Intent because the parcel would be greater than two acres within
agricultural land to be preserved. Call of votes: all aye, motion carried.
Chairman Kirchberg recognized Joel and Mr. And Mrs. Craig Lepple as they missed the
open floor at the beginning of the meeting: Mr. Lepple stated that his son Craig, current
farm operator, would like to build a new home on their farm. He continued that Dodge
County would require that the house be on its own parcel, therefore he will need to
submit a Letter of Intent to divide off 146’x 275’of the horse pasture 250 feet south of
original farmhouse. Clerk Beilke gave Mr. Lepple the application. Chairman will place on
next month’s agenda.

numerous violations present within Maple Grove and Lakeside Mobile Home Parks. John
Kraus, Jr. had taken pictures to document. The board was in agreement that there has
