 Coulee Conditional Use Permit STATUS Update:

Town of Rock Residents,

     I would like to give everyone an update on the Conditional Use Permit Application that has been submitted to the Township from Coulee Frac Sand LLC.

   As of this morning Oct 9th, the permit application will not be decided upon for at least a few more weeks.  The recommendations and concerns that were brought forward from the Ad Hoc committee, people who testified at the public hearings, information received from Wood County, and other information are being considered by the Town and Coulee.

  Coulee has agreed to a short extension of the time frame that was established by the Town’s zoning ordinance, to allow a more complete review by both The Town and Coulee Frac LLC. 

   Once the Town completes its review, there will be a public hearing before which public notice will be provided.  This will be the primary opportunity for residents to hear the information proposed to the township and voice any concerns they may have.  That meeting is anticipated to be held sometime in late October or early November.  Notice of this meeting will be provided well ahead of the meeting date. 

    I would like to take this time to once again thank everyone who has been involved with this project, especially the Ad Hoc Committee who diligently put many hours into research and information gathering to present at the meetings.  Also, the Zoning Commission and Board Supervisors who have fielded many phone calls regarding this matter.

     I hope this email answers some of the questions that you may have as to the status of the Conditional Use Application.   

 Respectfully, Pete Winistorfer
