Legal Notices: November 27, 2013


TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:  Notice is hereby given that Corinna Township Planning Commission/Board of Adjustment will convene Tuesday, December 10, 2013, at 7:00 PM at Corinna Town Hall to conduct the following public hearing(s):
Amendments to various sections throughout the Corinna Township Zoning Ordinance, including Sections 611 (Floodplain Overlay District), 612 (Shoreland Zoning Regulations) and other sections which are applicable in shoreland and non-shoreland areas. Applicant(s): Corinna Township. Purpose: To adopt changes to shoreland-related ordinances which are consistent with minimum requirements of MN Rules 6120 and which remain at least as restrictive as the Wright County Zoning Ordinance. To adopt changes which formalize past interpretations of existing ordinance language in both shoreland and non-shoreland areas. To reformat the existing Corinna Zoning Ordinance so as to assemble into one document (based on the format of the Wright County Zoning Ordinance), rather than referencing the county zoning ordinance in an appendix.
All interested persons are invited to attend these hearings and be heard or send written comments to the Township. Application information and a staff report are available for viewing at www.hometownplanning. com (staff report typically 5-7 days prior to the hearing date).  A quorum of the Town Board may be present at the meeting, but will not hold deliberations or make any decisions.
