NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS

 An Amendment to Des Moines County Zoning Ordinance #34 including the zoning classification of parcels of land from “R-1” Single and Two-Family Residential District to “C-1” General Commercial District.  

Notice is hereby given that the Board of Supervisors of Des Moines County, Iowa, will hold public hearings on May 24th, May 31st and June 7th, 2022 at 9:15 A.M. in the Board meeting room on the 2nd Floor at the Des Moines County Courthouse, 513 N Main St., Burlington, IA.  The purpose of the public hearings is for public comments regarding a request by Young House Family Services, Inc. to rezone 4 parcels of land at 4715-4717 Sullivan Slough Road from R-1 Single and Two-Family Residential to C-1 General Commercial. Rezoning would allow for a residential treatment facility for youth (aged 17 and under, but primarily 11 to 17), using an existing building that has been vacant since 2014. The previous use of that building was initially allowed as a ‘legal non-conforming use’ in the R-1 District, but this no longer applies once a use has ceased operations for more than one year. The facility will have space for up to 20 children at any given time.

A copy of proposed Amendment to Ordinance #34 is available at this link:  AMENDMENT TO ORDINANCE #34

Any member of the public may express their views on the proposed amendment to the ordinance during the public hearings in person or by an authorized representative.  Written comments may be filed with the County Auditor, PO Box 784, Burlington, IA 52601 or email johnsont@dmcounty.com and must be received before the public hearing.
