  1. Representatives for the proposed Golf Course and RV Resort, Brett Cummings, Scott McNee and Richard Villelli, presented possible options for the development to the Board. The proposed development consists of a southern parcel that is in the District and a northern parcel that is outside of the District’s current boundaries.  Ideally, they would like to develop the course and resort with a mixture of residential, tiny homes/cabins and RV spaces throughout both parcels.  If the northern parcel cannot be annexed into the District a secondary plan is to place all connections on the southern parcel and the golf course only on the northern parcel.  Benefits to the District would be that the District would be able to provide water to  land apply at a treated grade A level to the golf course and their ponds.  Also, could be beneficial for the future development of Field of Dreams. The purchase of the hook-ups would help offset the cost of the upgrades needed to treat at a grade A level.  There are still lots of requirements by the city, and the District would need to research costs and benefits to the District before making any decisions.  Brett Converse, Tanner, and representatives for the golf course will continue conversations regarding the feasibility of the development. No decisions were made at this meeting.
  2. The Board reviewed the rescinding of previously recorded requirements. Documents to be signed by Tanner and recorded.
  3. The Board discussed the determination of the foregone amount for the District Levy. The Board decided not to use it this year as another public hearing would need to be held and published in the newspaper. Publication costs would be approximately half of the amount of the foregone.  Cliff moved to not utilize the foregone amount this year.  Larry seconded the motion.  All in favor.
  4. Policy changes to ICRMP were reviewed. No Action needed to be taken.
