  • Consider a text amendment to the Joint City/County Subdivision Regulations, to allow an exception to the regulations to permit agricultural lot splits of 5 acres or larger on a one-time basis for properties that have a minimum total gross acreage of 20 acres. The process would be ``very similar'' to the existing 5-acre division provision, officials said, with the ``significant distinction'' that it would permit only one 5-acre division under stated conditions, prior to the property needing to be platted. Initiated by the Douglas County Commission.
  • Consider a text amendment to the Joint City/County Subdivision Regulations, to increase the exemption from subdivision regulations for tracts of property for residential purposes that are 20 acres or larger in size. No limitation on the number of divisions 20 acres or larger in size would be applied. In addition, there would be a recognition that lending institutions may require a separate parcel description that must meet county sanitation requirements, smaller than the 20-acre tract. This exemption would become an agricultural lot split if separate titles are transferred for the property. Initiated by the Douglas County Commission.
  • Consider a text amendment to the Joint City/County Subdivision Regulations, creating a new section to permit an abbreviated process for platting one to four lots. No preliminary plat would be required if specific criteria for application are met. Initiated by the Douglas County Commission.
  • Consider a text amendment to the Joint City/County Subdivision Regulations, to define a private road as a ``private road or lane serving no more than one property and dwelling unit and functioning as that dwelling's access to a public way.'' Initiated by the Douglas County Commission.
  • Consider a text amendment to the Joint City/County Subdivision Regulations, to adopt a county road map and minimum frontage requirement based on lot size and proximity to the Urban Growth Area boundary. Initiated by the Douglas County Commission.
  • Consider a text amendment to eliminate a a section of Chapter 20 of the Lawrence City Code, and to add language that a time limitation may be placed on Uses Permitted upon Review (UPRs). Initiated by planning commission.
  • Consider an amendment to Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for the 1999-2004 fiscal years.
