March 17, 2022 Camden County Commission meeting at 10:00 a.m.

I attended the March 17, 2022 Camden County Commission meeting at 10:00 a.m.

All commissioners were present.

There were a handful of people in the audience who weren’t Camden County employees. I figured they were probably there for some of the Planning and Zoning items on the agenda.

The commissioners began to approve the minutes from previous Planning and Zoning Commission meetings. Commissioner Gohagan reviewed the minutes and noticed the December minutes didn’t include the fact that the technical revisions to the Land Use Code had been tabled. Those minutes were tabled for correction and approval.

The first agenda item was PZ21-0232 480 Turtle Ridge, Camdenton-Rezone R1 to A1.

This rezone request was needed to match zoning between lots that were going to be combined. The PZ Commission approved this 5-0. Nobody was present to speak for or against it.

It was approved unanimously.

The second agenda item was PZ21-0235 Sunrise Beach Rezone AR to B2. This was a parcel the owner wanted to rezone so he could expand his RV Park. The applicant was present to speak on behalf of it. He plans to add space for twenty RV’s over time. There was no opposition.

It was approved unanimously.

The third agenda item was PZ21-0246 4008 Highway 5 Rezone AR to B2. According to Kim Willey, this is a mis-zoned piece of property. It has always been used for commercial purposes. There is a fiberglass repair shop operating there and the owner was present at the meeting. The incorrect zoning came up when he applied for a small business loan.

It was approved unanimously.

The fourth agenda item was for PZ22-0004 TBD Winery Hills, Linn Creek Rezone A1 to B2. The owner wants to rezone 5 acres to put in six rental cabins and develop a lodging enterprise. The PZ Commission approved it 5-0. In a nice change of pace, the neighbor who spoke about this rezone was actually in favor of it. He shares a road with the requestor and is supportive of the change. It always pays off to have good relations with your neighbors.

It was approved unanimously.

The fifth agenda item was a PZ Commission appointment. David Stone will be re-appointed to his position. This was approved unanimously.

The final agenda item was the Financial Statement. The Treasurer presented it to the Commission. She originally submitted it on February 23, 2022 and updated it on March 9, 2022. Commissioner Gohagan asked her if there was anything remarkable about the statement? The Treasurer responded that expenses were higher than revenue in 2021. That sure sounds interesting. We had record revenue last year so it seems we also had record expenses.

And that was that.
