Call to Order

Planning Commission meeting was called to order by Chairperson Shannon Armel at the Germantown Town Hall at 5:30 p.m.




Possible approval of meeting minutes.

Keith Korbein made a motion, seconded by Ken Jax, to approve the April 21, 2021 minutes.  Motion passed 5-0.


Discussion and possible approval of Preliminary Plat and Final Plat for 12th Addition to Island Lake at Copper Point

Discussion. This is the last addition.  The only change is in lot numbering.  Lot numbers changed slightly because they re-configured the lots after the addition of property but did not change the number of lots.  The number of total lots is still at 364 lots, but the lot numbering is higher because of re-platting or being platted over.  So, we should disregard the old numbering for this section and just use the county’s plat once it is approved and recorded. There will be no construction traffic during construction on any Whistling Wings roads. 15th and 32nd will be resurfaced when construction is done. Gervase Thompson made a motion, seconded by Ken Jax, to approve the Preliminary Plat and Final Plat for the 12th Addition to Island Lake at Copper Point; motion passed 5/0.


Work session on signs and sign ordinance.

Some expressed concerns about blind intersections and trying to see around signs or sign monuments, i.e., O’Dell’s Bay where you cannot see past their entry monument without going past the Stop sign.  Sight lines guidelines in the new version of the zoning ordinance are more confusing than in the sign ordinance. Discussed the nonconforming signs vs illegal signs.  Typos will be corrected, and numbering of sections needs to be adjusted. This discussion will be continued at the next meeting.



Next meeting will be June 9, 2021 at 5:30pm.

Ken Jax made a motion, seconded by Keith Korbein, to adjourn at 6:30pm.  Motion carried 5-0.


Respectfully Submitted,



Michaele Korbein

Deputy Clerk/Treasurer
