Pair of parcel divisions approved in Hobart
By Kevin Boneske
HOBART – The Hobart village board gave its approval Tuesday, Dec. 3, to splitting up two lots for future development.
Board members approved a request from the Richard and Mary Jo Montgomery Joint Revocable Trust for a two-lot plat dividing a 4.22-acre parcel at 4550 Hillcrest Dr. into separate parcels of 2.18 and 2.04 acres.
Todd Gerbers, Hobart director of planning and code compliance, said both lots in the R-1 Residential zoning district will satisfy the minimum requirement of 12,000 square feet and achieve the density of no more than three residential lots for each 2 acres of land as required by village ordinance.
Gerbers said approval is contingent upon paying a $300 park fee for creating a new lot in a residential district.
The board also approved a certified survey map for reconfiguring 16.59 acres of village-owned land into two separate parcels of 13.341 and 3.25 acres at 3794 Packerland Dr. along the south side of Camber Court.
Gerbers said the village is working with a developer to develop the larger lot, while the smaller lot will be a vacant parcel that could be sold in the future.
Because Brown County has informed the village about access for the smaller lot not allowed onto Packerland Drive, Gerbers said the smaller lot will share an ingress/egress easement with the larger lot.
No fee hikes
In addition to the mill rate for village purposes staying the same, fees in Hobart won’t be going up next year.
The board backed a resolution to keep the fee schedule at the current rates for items such as liquor licenses, fees for dogs, zoning permits, park rentals and special event permits.
School Choice Week
Board members approved a resolution recognizing Jan. 26-Feb. 1, 2020, as School Choice Week in the village.
