Ms. White updated the Board on phase 4, of 5 phases, in which some adjustments have been made. Six different public meetings are scheduled for October 3-6, with the survey open from October 7-31 and a virtual meeting on October 12. The LUPAC committee will play an important role in spreading the word for these meetings, and public input is very important as discussion will take place regarding policies/regulations, county roles, and strategies the County will potentially pursue to achieve future goals.
Kim Dillivan, Planning & Zoning - RE: Public Hearing: Molnar Lawson Variance
Chairwoman Overfield opened the public hearing.
Mr. Dillivan presented the variance allowing flexibility in the regulations as it pertains to GR-20 zoning. Applicant Michael Molnar plans to begin the subdivision process to divide a 39.96-acre parcel into two 19.98-acre lots. Agency referrals have been met and one public comment was received. If approved, the final plat will state that no further subdivision of the lots is allowed under current regulations, and the applicant may proceed with a Simple Subdivision Application.
Chairwoman Overfield called for public comments. Marilyn Walker concerned about the division of the property and Cody Schatz with Engineering Associates commented regarding the original survey stating it was 40 acres in 1907.
There being no further comments Commissioner Tilden made a motion to close the public hearing, Commissioner Mangold seconded, motion carried.

Kim Dillivan, Planning & Zoning – RE: Public Hearing: Kardos Zoning Map Amendment
Chairwoman Overfield opened the public hearing.
Mr. Dillivan presented the application for Nathan Kardos to approve a zoning map amendment that would rezone a 50.46-acre parcel from residential ½ acre (RH) to GR-5 zoning which would subdivide the lots into five acres or greater. Without annexation into the city of Cody, public water and sewer would not be available. The property is located immediately Southwest of Cody’s city limits. Notices and agency referrals have been met. No public comments have been received.
Chairwoman Overfield called for public comments. Jim Husar expressed concerns with increased traffic, dust, and safety. Bev Richards, representing Boot & Bottle, stated they have had a conversation with applicant regarding fence and road. Ted Bezat’s major concern is the lack of a hydrological study, as it applies to sewer, water wells, cisterns, and irrigation. Cody Schatz with Engineering Associates stated the presented plan would involve less lots with bigger acreages instead of .5-acre lots. Chairwoman Overfield stated that all these concerns will be addressed if the applicant moves forward with the subdivision process.
There being no further public comments, Commissioner Tilden moved to close the public hearing, Commissioner Thiel seconded, motion carried.
Commissioner Livingston recused himself since a family member owns property in the area.
Commissioner Thiel moved to approve the zoning change as presented, Commissioner Tilden seconded, motion carried. RESOLUTION 2022-86
