Village Board adopts three new ordinances

Petersburg Village Board met last Tuesday evening, Aug. 4 and passed three new ordinances involving the creation of a Community Development Agency, amending the official zoning map, and, approving a lot split.

Zoning Director Barb Hansen explained that rezoning of the proposed new housing site must reflect the future use of the land to make zoning official. Hansen stated, “We don’t have to completely undo the zoning, there’s no real problem.” She will also inform the school district of the subdivision. The I-1 area has been rezoned to higher residential. The change will be made to the future land use map. Hansen stated, “There was a misunderstanding with the first survey.”

The board also passed a TIF financing ordinance which allows the village to create the Community Development Agency in the Village of Petersburg. This board will elect a chairman, vice chairman and have power to employ counsel and a director. Michael Bacon will assist with set up at a cost of $10,000.
