The Wahpeton Planning & Zoning Commission will conduct a Public Hearing on Tuesday December 12, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. in the Wahpeton City Hall to consider the following changes to the Wahpeton Zoning Regulations:

Page 5: BUILDING HEIGHT: In the definition take out “from the average finished ground grade” and add “excluding chimneys”.

Page 5: CERTIFIED SURVEY: be changed to “IOWA REGISTERED SURVEY”. In the definition take out “sketch” and add “showing existing structures”.

Page 7: IMPERVIOUS SURFACE: change the definition to read “Impervious surfaces are mainly constructed surfaces (including but not limited to) rooftops, sidewalks, driveways, roads, and parking lots covered by impenetrable materials such as asphalt, concrete, brick, stone and gravel. These materials seal surfaces, repel water, and prevent precipitation and melt water from infiltrating soils.

Page 86: Section 4. APPLICATION FOR ZONING PERMIT. Add at the beginning: “The property owner is required to apply and sign for the zoning permit.

The Commission plans to consider recommending the above proposed changes in the Wahpeton Zoning Regulations to the City Council.
