Land use

To the Editor:

I would like to commend the plan commission on their decision to work with Mr. Travis Lambrecht regarding the fact that the building he is using for income and residence sits partially on land owned by the city.

This is one of the situations where making the allowance will not adversely affect the City of Plymouth or it’s residents. However, a ruling against Mr. Lambrecht’s request would have been a travesty.

The building in question has been there for as long as I can remember, somewhat of a landmark, and a memory to Dean Lambrecht (who was well known in the community).

Everything has been fine for decades. Travis was taking the proper steps to improve the property when the survey showed that the building was barely on city land.

Too often this would have been an opportunity for city government to take the wrong stance, either to not allow the requested improvements, or worse yet, to require that the building be removed or abandoned. This would have accomplished nothing for anyone.

It’s good to know that the city leaders are willing to not only cooperate in a situation such as this, but actually make it possible for Mr. Lambrecht to proceed without an unnecessary huge financial investment for something that already exists.

Thank you to the city planners, and good luck to Mr. Lambrecht on his business venture.
