Notice is hereby given that on Thursday, February 1, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. the Todd County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing in the Commissioners Meeting Room, 215 First Ave. South, Long Prairie to consider the following applications.

1) Land Use Ordinance Proposed Changes:

An application request to add to the Todd County Land Use Ordinance, Section 7.11 Agriculture Use Standards, was received from Latimer Lake Association with support letters from Osakis Lake Association, Lake Beauty Association, Big Swan Lake Association and Big Swan Lake Improvement District.

The proposed addition would restrict livestock access on those lakes with DNR public boat landings in an effort to reduce shoreline bank erosion, reduce nutrients to the lake, and reduce direct deposition of animal waste into these waters - adding e-coli.

The proposal will be presented and discussed with opportunity for public input. The proposed changes are available for review on the Todd County website.

All persons interested are invited to attend said hearing and be heard on these matters.
