The Madison County Planning and Zoning Board will broach the subject of defining exactly what the definition of “intensive agriculture” should be at their Thursday, Jan. 13, meeting.
The subject was discussed at length in the board’s December meeting. An overwhelming majority in the room was against changing any classification where farm land was involved.
Also on the agenda will discuss allowable vs. special exception requirements for recreational uses in all land use categories.
New items on the agenda will include the election of a chair and vice-chair for 2011 and the approval of the 2011 meeting schedule for the board.
The P&Z Board will also consider scheduling a visit to Full Circle Dairy, which is located south of Lee. The purpose of the visit is so that board members can gain knowledge of dairies.
A discussion family homestead lot splits on unplatted subdivisions is also on the agenda.
The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the county commissioners meeting room in the Courthouse Annex.
