Zoning by Deed Restrcition and Development Agreement
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Wyoming Planning Association Members Forum Topic Request~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Name: Jana McCarronEmail: jana_mccarron@rswy.netComments: From Rock Springs...Our Council has requested we ask other communities if they use Deed Restrictions or Development Agreements as a way to have more flexible development standards. We are interested to hear either way. Thanks!
From the WyoPASS President - How can WyoPASS communicate more effectively with our membership?
This spring in Thermopolis the WyoPASS Board (weather permitting) began to look at the organization from a strategic point of view.  One item that stood out was we needed to communicate more effectively with our membership.

As we meet again in Laramie next week we want to layout an approach to improving communitations among other things.

Any feedback from our members would be appreciated as we head into that meeting.

Thanks

Private Maintenance of Public Roads - Best Practices?

Name: Bruce Frederick
Email: planner@washakiecounty.net
Comments: State statute requires "covenants or other instruments creating an entity" to address the maintenance and responsibility of common areas, including roads. Washakie County has received a minor, 5-lot, subdivision proposal stating the owner of lot 1, his heirs and assigns, is responsible for the maintenance of the private road within the subdivision. Have other counties had to deal with a similar proposal? Yes, this is not good planning, but is this a compliant proposal?

City/County Shared Engineers - What`s the contract look like

Name: Rob YinglingEmail: jcplanner@vcn.comComments: Johnson County and the City of Buffalo are considering hiring a shared full-time civil engineer. The Buffalo City Planner and I have been tasked with developing a proposal for sharing the position. It would help us a great deal if if any jurisdiction using a shared engineer could comment on what agreement terms are in place, or send a copy of an in-force agreement so we have something to start with. Any suggestions or information is appreciated.

Should we require a "Notice of Contract for Deed" to be recorded
Wyoming Planning Association Members Forum Topic Request~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Name: Rob YinglingEmail: jcplanner@vcn.comComments: Johnson County is considering asking our local state legislator to submit a bill to amend state statutes (perhaps the Property, Conveyances and Security Transactions statute (W.S. 34-2-xxx)) to require recording of a "Notice of Contract For Deed." Because the subdivisions statute defines subdivision as a sale, and defines sale as including contract for deed, Johnson County considers the sale of parcels of land under 35 acres using a contract for deed to be a subdivision. However, there is no requirement for recording anything, so we can`t track illegal subdivisions of parcels. There are also issues with Contracts for Deed and clear title and no indication to County Assessors that assessment criteria may have changed on such parcels. Our local Board of Realtors is behind this, and I`ve been told that the matter is on the upcoming agenda for the State Board of Realtors. Do any of you planners have any comments on this?

Comments: Carbon County relies on WDEQ\WQD for the administration and "permits to construct" for on-site wastewater or the septic program. We are evaluating local delegation and would apprciate your feedback. How does your County (what department) administer the program? What is your permit fee structure?
thanks for your input.
