Planning commission considers industrial park setbacks

The Glencoe Planning Commission discussed creating setbacks for industrial areas at its regular meeting on Thursday, Feb. 11.
City Administrator Mark Larson presented the idea to the commission, stating that the setback for such areas is currently zero.
This means property owners could potentially build up to the property line, which Larson said he is worried about in the industrial park.
Larson said the lack of setbacks dates back to commercial downtown properties. Having no setbacks in a commercial downtown area makes sense, Larson said, but there is need for setbacks in an industrial area.
Commissioner Ron Knop said he thinks setbacks would be a good idea.
Larson said he would research the idea more and come back with a recommendation for the commission.
