Mr. Mutch stated that this proposal is an excellent draft and recommends approval.



Commissioner Suggs stated that basically it is a good document however, in section C, item 1 she recommends that the language be changed from 500 feet to 1000 feet.



Commissioner Thomas would like language added in section B, item 5 to include the location of any bodies of water. Mr. Koons recommends that the language be added as item 6 under section B, rather than changing item 5.



Items 5 and 6 of Mr. Wright's proposal covers the water issue.



In Section C item 6, the Board agreed to replace the word "stormwater" with "waters both point and non-point".



The Board would like items 5 and 6 of Mr. Wright's proposal added to Section B of the proposal before the Board. On item 5, change the word "site" to "a defined area of one quarter mile radius".



Commissioner Suggs made a motion to accept the proposal with the changes identified tonight and transmit same to the Planning and Zoning Board. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Thomas. Ms. Boyce asked if the Planning and Zoning Board can make changes. One public hearing will be held with the Planning and Zoning Board and two public hearings will be followed by the Board of County Commissioners. Commissioner Suggs amended her motion to add the word "water" to the first paragraph of page one, which refers to industrial waste, changing it to "industrial waste water", with the same correction being made throughout the entire document, and to add to item 8, section B, a statement that the applicant provide copies of the applications they are required to apply for with the special exception application. The amended motion was seconded by Commissioner Thomas. Vote of the Board was unanimous.
