Nies addition annexed, rezoned
Land beneath of proposed bakery came one step closer to becoming part of Beulah last week when the city’s planning and zoning board voted to recommend its inclusion in city limits.
During a regularly-scheduled public hearing the board voted unanimously to annex land belonging to Mark and Bonnie Nies into city limits, as well as rezoning it to a C2 (commercial) designation.
The board’s recommendation to annex and rezone will next come up at a city council meeting.
Next up on the board’s agenda was a retention pond design for the Latter Day Saints Church in Country Club Estates. City Coordinator Russ Duppong said the pond was needed to regulate any excess runoff that would occur due to additions to the church.
“The state requires anything more than two acres that has a development or development with a future plan to have a special permit for the storm water permit,” Duppong said. “The state won’t allow them to run that water freely.”
Duppong then updated the zoning board on where the city was in looking at a comprehensive land use plan.
“The comprehensive plan is the more precise plan that tells us more about infrastructure and what we’re looking at moving forward,” he said. “It analyzes what we have and what we’re tying into. The land use and growth management plan is more of a look at how the city could grow.
