Sheldon Council To Consider Two Rezoning Requests Wednesday

Sheldon, Iowa — The Sheldon City Council will meet in regular session in the council chambers at the Sheldon Community Services Center this Wednesday afternoon at 4:30.

On their consent agenda are one wine and one cigarette permit, the confirmation of the mayor’s appointment of council member Shantel Oostra to the Crossroads Pavilion Board, the confirmation of the mayor’s appointment of Jarad Johnson to serve as assistant SCAT Director, a resolution approving fire service fees, a resolution setting a hearing for a South 5th Avenue farm lease, the approval of a resolution regarding an updated 28E agreement for the Regional Drug Task Force, and the approval of a resolution for the annual Village Northwest Unlimited Fireworks display on Wednesday, July 3rd, 2024. Unless a council member objects to one of these items being in the consent agenda, they will all be approved with one motion, without discussion.

In other business, the council will consider rezoning 4901 300th Street, which is the northwest corner of Nest Avenue and 300th Street, between three-quarters and seven-eighths of a mile east of the north end of the Sheldon Regional Airport property. The property is zoned agricultural now, and the request is to change the zoning to suburban residential. A shed and home are being constructed on the property. No zoning change would have been required for the shed, but for the house, a zoning change is needed.

Two public hearings regarding zoning will take place during the meeting.

The other hearing is for the proposed Trijinks Addition on the east side of Country Club Road north of the new water tower.

If the rezoning of the Trijinks Addition is approved, the council will consider approving the new subdivision.

The council will also consider a request to vacate a small piece of property, which is unimproved 13th Avenue north of 14th Street.

The council will also hear a bonding update and the city manager’s report.

Again, the meeting is this Wednesday at 4:30 in the council chambers at the Sheldon Community Services Center.
