Crow Wing County seeks public comment on land use ordinance revisions
Public comment is sought by the Crow Wing County Land Services Department on revisions to the county land use ordinance.
The ordinance revisions may be viewed on the county website at www.crowwing.us by clicking on the “CWC Listens” button on the home page. Written comments on the proposed changes will be accepted until Nov. 16 and may be submitted to the Environmental Services Office at email@example.com or mailed to 322 Laurel St., Suite 14, Brainerd, MN 56401.
A public hearing for the review of the proposed revisions to the land use ordinance is planned at 5 p.m. Dec. 19 before the planning commission in the County Board Room on the third floor of the historic Courthouse, 326 Laurel St., Brainerd. The planning commission will make a recommendation on the proposed ordinance revisions to the county board for consideration at a meeting in January of 2014.
There are two articles in the Land Use Ordinance that are being revised:
• Article 37 — septic systems.
• Article 46 — definitions.
Counties are required to update current septic system ordinances by Feb. 3, 2014, according to state statutes 115.55 and also must be in compliance with Minnesota Rules Chapters 7080-7083.
