mowed the township lawn.

Zoning Investigations -Nothing more.

Comprehensive Plan Update – Ron Bingaman asked the Board to review the zoned areas on
the land use map. He stated that his farm which has been in the family for over 200 years, has
always been zoned agricultural. However, when the Comprehensive Plan was created in 2002 the
engineer’s listed it at Residential Ag. He asked if it would be possible for it to be zoned
Agriculture again. The Board discussed it and Paula said the only difference between the two is
that Agriculture Residential is not permitted to have CAFO’s. There was more discussion and
Colin said they would have to look into what procedure’s needed to be done to accomplish this.
Julie said she would call Mike Brinkash the next day and discuss it with him. Ron asked if she
could let him know.
