APPEAL OF THE SAWYER COUNTY ZONING COMMITTEE’S DECISION

 

Appellant TWJ Forest Resources, LLC  c/o Thomas W. Johnson appeals the decision made by the Sawyer County Zoning Committee to deny an application for a boundary line change resulting in a parcel not conforming to the rectangular lot policy. Said boundary line change lies within that part of Gov’t lot 1, S35, T 40N, R 5W; Parcel :1.2, Township of Winter.

 

 The appeal is made from the May 20, 2005 Zoning Committee Public Hearing where the Zoning Committee denied the application with findings that the application did not meet the criteria for granting a variance. The appellant feels the Committee did not proceed on the correct theory of law when making its decision and that the property has unique limitations; there is no harm to public interest; that there is an unnecessary hardship;  that the Committee’s decision was arbitrary, oppressive, unreasonable and represented its will and not its judgment and in the appellants opinion that the evidence was such that the Committee could not have reasonably made the decision in question.

 

The appellant requests that the Sawyer County Board of Appeals review the decision to deny made by the Sawyer County Zoning Committee.
