Cass County Planning and Zoning

David Moll – My Opinion

Not too long ago I was challenged if being a member of the Cass County Planning and Zoning Committee would affect my work as Chairman of the Greenwood Council. I was also challenged if these articles I write are my opinion, or fact. So let me address both of these subjects at once. Therefore, this article is solely my opinion.

1. Anybody who doesn’t see a member of our council sitting on the Cass County P&Z committee as an absolute positive affect for the village is only looking at the negative and not the positive. It’s far more beneficial for our village to have a voice in decisions that affect us, than to be in the dark while other voices from other parts of the county are heard. This was very evident in the focus groups on the county’s Comprehensive Plan review where quite a few of the discussions questioned how the eastern side of Cass County could capitalize on Omaha’s growth.

2. In March, I attended the Nebraska Planning and Zoning Association conference in Kearney, as a representative of the county. Most of the seminars were beneficial to the subjects we are working on at the county level, but these also transfer to Greenwood’s needs. The seminars I attended, other than the fundamentals of the Planning Commission and Comprehensive Plan included: Resolving Problem Properties, Airport Zoning, plus a fantastic seminar on the Board of Adjustment (who control variances).

Our village attorney told me Greenwoods Zoning Ordinances and Comprehensive Plan needs to be reviewed and in all probability be revised. This seminar not only gave me a good education on these subjects, but more importantly, it allowed networking with the people who are experts on these subjects. Coincidentally, at the County Planning and Zoning Committee meetings, we are very involved in both a revision to the Comprehensive Plan, as well as a complete review of the Zoning regulations.

3. Will being on a County Committee take away from Greenwoods work? We do have a lot of projects going on which I’m very involved in. Since I am only working part time these days, I do have the time to work on these issues which I do virtually every day of the week – and all for $40 a month. More importantly, I’m very encouraged when other council members chip in on a daily basis with their expertise when they look for, and see, how their talents can help solve a problem. In a small village trying to keep employee numbers low, this defines public service.

4. Lastly, the one thing I do like about being on the County Planning and Zoning committee is the ability of the members to debate subjects without raising their voice, or saying anything personal or derogatory at each other. When the vote is final, they go on to the next subject.
