Location/Legal Description:   Lots 2  and  3,  Block  4,  Wheeler’s  Point  in  Section  19,  Township 162,  Range 32; Parcel # 19.62.04.020. Project Proposal:  To allow the applicant to conduct a commercial business consisting of a resort rental cabin in a Low Density Residential District. Chairman Arnesen opened the floor for comments. Keith Peppel, adjoining property owner shared his concerns of this property being changed to a commercial usage with his property and other adjoining land owners are residential; also requested that the east ½ of lot two (2) not to be included in the conditional use permit, thus allowing that part of lot 2 be left as an residential lot for further usage as that.

FEEDLOT PROGRAM-Motion was made by Commissioner Hanson, seconded by Commissioner Beckel and carried unanimously to approve the 2016 County Feedlot Program Delegation Agreement and Work Plan Review and authorize Chairman Arnesen to sign.

AMC PRESENTATION-Chairman Arnesen announced that Lake of the Woods County was selected for the AMC-BWSR County Conservation Award for their contributions toward improving the State wetland mitigation policy. The exceptional effort of county staff to educate others and raise awareness of the problems associated with the current mitigation process, served as the catalyst for major changes to the Minnesota Wetland Conservation act to improve the public value outcomes of wetland mitigation. Thanks in large part to county staff, these new statutes will result in a proactive, targeted wetland mitigation process with decisions based primarily on the public value benefits it will provide. The significance of the accomplishment cannot be overstated. They are undoubtedly the most significant changes to the Wetland Conservation act since at least 1996 and the benefits will be shared by all Minnesota counties. If it wasn’t for the hard work and persistence of the county to raise awareness of this important issue and push for change, the statute changes that occurred in 2015 would almost certainly not have occurred. Those changes are just the beginning of a new way of achieving wetland mitigation in Minnesota to the benefit of all of our counties, citizens, and natural resources. Chairman Arnesen, on behalf of Lake of the Woods County Board thanked Land and Water Planning Director, Josh Stromlund, and Soil & Water Conservation District, Resource Technician, Mike Hirst for their hard work and dedication.

DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES-Greg Nelson, DNR NW Region Director met with the board to discuss the following: NWA Potential Northerly Park Land Transfer, Gun Club Potential Land Transfer, Rocky Point Access Construction, Buffer Law, Aquatic Invasive Species

S E H-Shawn McMahon and Kaci Nowick from S E H met with the board to present the potential NWA Airport Layout Plan (ALP) process which is the County’s next step with the planning for the potential airport. Kaci also informed the board that the grant from MnDOT would not be available until July 1, 2016 and that would be an 80/20 grant and the estimate of this phase would be $123,300.
