NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Emmons County Commission will consider Proposed Zoning Resolution 22-03-01 on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 5:00 P.M., at the Emmons County Courthouse, Linton, North Dakota.  The purpose of the hearing is to receive public comment and direction on the proposed zoning Resolution.  If adopted, the Resolution would require mobile homes in certain districts (Recreation, Residential, and Agriculture) to file an Affidavit of Affixation before being approved for a building permit.  It would require mobile homes to be anchored to a permanent foundation, using piers, footings or a basement.  It would also require tires, tongues or hitches to be removed.  Mobile homes are required to maintain an active connection to basic utilities, including power, water and sewer.

If adopted, the Resolution would also regulate Conex Boxes, cargo, shipping, intermodal and freight containers and other similar structures typically used as tool or storage sheds.  Those regulations would apply to recreational districts only, and the Resolution would require such Conex Boxes to be painted to match existing structures.  If no structures are on the property, the paint color must be white or beige, and must not include lettering.   This Resolution would require building permits for Conex Boxes and limit recreational districts to one Conex Box per lot.  This is the current nature, scope and purpose of the Resolution.  The Resolution may be amended during or after the Public Hearing. 

If you are unable to attend the public hearing, comments may be sent to the Emmons County Auditor, PO Box 129, Linton, ND 58552 or emailed to mohlhauser@nd.gov.
