9/19/2012 10:19:00 AM Letter: D-H Museum seeks permit to operate
The Dewey-Humboldt Historical Society is proposing to use the old Bank building at 12925 E. Main Street, Humboldt, as a community historical museum, and the lot across Main Street from the Bank building at 12922 as an artifact display area. To accomplish this, the current zoning status of the properties requires that we get a permanent "conditional use permit" to allow the proposed use. We are preparing to file the application forms needed to obtain the permit.
As part of the planning process, this letter, (details of our Citizen's Participation Plan), is intended to do the following:
1. To formally notify the citizens of our intentions.
2. To invite anyone who might have concerns that the application and its intent might have a negative impact on the community to meet with us, discuss our intentions and express concerns.
3. To insure that the property owners in the community have ample opportunity to learn about the application, to meet with us, discuss our intentions and express concerns.
4. To facilitate communication between the Society and interested citizens, property owners, town staff, Planning Commissioners and elected officials.
A public meeting to discuss the Museum plans and the use permit application will take place at the Bank building at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20. If further public dialogue is desired, a second meeting will be scheduled at that time.
Owners of property within 300 feet of the two properties will be mailed a copy as an invitation to attend. All interested citizens are encouraged to attend. Anyone with questions may call at the number given below.
The Planning and Zoning Commissioners will be kept informed of these efforts through direct communication with a commissioner.
