At l0:30 a.m. a Public Hearing on the first consideration to amend the Comprehensive and Future Land Use Plan and to amend Zoning Ordinance 024, rezoning a tract of land in the East one-half of the Southeast Quarter of Section 6, Cooper Township I-1 (Industrial) to A2 (Agricultural).  It was noted that at the Planning and Zoning hearing the City of Fort Dodge and Airport Commission objected to the rezone citing it would hamper airport operations and would interfere with their flight pattern and master plan.  Mark Crimmins, representing the landowners who requested the rezone stated that the A-2 would limit housing to two and that this land is not included in the airport’s master plan and flight pattern.  Any homes built in this area would have to receive FFA approval and that would be most unlikely to obtain.  No other objections were heard.  Moved by Lizer, seconded by Condon to approve first consideration of said amendment, waive second consideration and set 10:30 a.m. on December 20, 2005, for final consideration.  Roll call vote:  Ayes – Nolting, Lizer, Condon and Magnusson.  Nays – none.  Motion carried.
