The property is described as part of the NW ¼ of Section 29 and 32, Township 23 North, Range 66 West, Platte County, Wyoming. Mr. Thayer’s request to rezone from Agriculture to Industrial would provide for additional business opportunities and is needed for him to operate an on-site slaughtering option. Mr. Thayer has requested a special use permit in conjunction with this rezone request. Mr. Thayer spoke in favor of the request and answered questions from the board. The Planning & Zoning Commission recommended approval of the request on September 14, 2021. Mr. Jolovich motioned, seconded by Mrs. Mantle to approve Mr. Thayer’s request to rezone from Agriculture to Industrial. The motion carried. Planner Clark then presented a request made by Colt Thayer for a special use permit to operate a commercial slaughtering permit on the same property referenced above. Mr. Thayer intends to seek United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) certification for his slaughtering operation. Discussion was had amongst board members and Mr. Thayer about what USDA certification is and what is entailed with that certification. Planner Clark recommended the request be approved with eight conditions. The Planning & Zoning Commission recommended approval of the request, with five conditions, on September 14, 2021. Mrs. Mantle motioned, seconded by Mr. Jolovich to approve Mr. Thayer’s special use permit request with five conditions as recommended by Planning & Zoning. Those conditions are: 1) Mr. Thayer be responsible to meet all permitting requirements of the State of Wyoming and/or federal agencies which are applicable to the development; 2) Mr. Thayer provide the Planning Office with a copy of all federal and state licenses, certificates and permits as they are obtained; 3) Mr. Thayer obtain a Platte County building certificate before construction of the facility; 4) Permit to be reviewed on a complaint basis; 5) The continued use of the premises will be limited to the uses of the facility as specified in the application for special use permit. A change of use, not including increase or decrease of business activity, shall require a new application. The motion carried.
