COMPREHENSIVE LAND USE ADVISORY COMMITTEE
April 14, 2003
Meeting was called to order at 9:30 a.m. at the Kabetogama Fire Station. Present were; Jack McMahon, Caroline Littwiller, John Stiegmeir, Ron Moyer and Larry Warrington.
Jack asked that we meet early to discuss the conference call with Bridget Chard and University of Minnesota’s Engineering Team. A conference call was asked for by Bridget to help everyone involved with the project to be in agreement as to how to proceed. We need to set up a contact person for Bridget in Kabetogama and supply her with information on the comprehensive land use plan.
The conference call took place at 10:30 a.m. The University of Minnesota Team needed information also about where and when the project would begin and to what extent it would cover. All parties agreed to slow the pace of the project so as to not get ahead of themselves and make unnecessary moves.
Community education is the first place we need to begin. A tentative date of June 22, 2003 was set to allow the U of M Team to set up informational material about the project so everyone could become more familiar.
Following the June date, a community meeting would be set for July 7 and 8, 2003. July 7 there will be two sessions, one at 9:00 a.m. and one at 6:00 p.m. U of M Team will be there to inform and field questions from the community. The July 8 session will be held from 9:00 a.m. until noon. A mailing will be sent to all residents with the above dates and other advertising will follow. Another session will be held at the September 3 meeting of the Lake Association to inform any resort owners who might not be able to attend the two July sessions.
Budget and contracts were discussed and a plan for payment will be drafted by the University and Bridget.
The call was ended at 11:30 a.m. The meeting was adjourned at 11:45 a.m.
These minutes are subject to approval at the next meeting of the committee.
