Answer YES if your project involves ONLY one of the following:
Answer NO if ANY part of your project involves:
FLOOD INSURANCE NOTICE: If your variance request involves a request to construct a structure below the base flood level, you are hereby notified that this will result in an increased premium rate for flood insurance up to amounts as high as $25 for $100 of insurance coverage. Such construction below the base or regional flood level increases risks to life and property.
REZONING APPLICATIONS: Applications for ordinance/zoning map amendments must also be approved by Wright County if they would be considered less restrictive than County zoning regulations. For these applications, the Township provides a recommendation to the County. Applicants are responsible for contacting the County to be placed on their agenda, if necessary.
REZONING APPLICATIONS: Applications for ordinance/zoning map amendments may also need to be approved by Douglas County if they would be considered less restrictive than County zoning regulations. For these applications, the Township provides a recommendation to the County. Applicants are responsible for contacting the County to be placed on their agenda, if necessary.
INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS: Incomplete applications, as determined by the Zoning Administrator, will not be accepted or scheduled for a hearing. It is recommended that you work with the Zoning Administrator well before the application deadline to ensure that you have all required information so as to avoid delays in the hearing of your application:
REQUIRED LOT SURVEYS: The Zoning Administrator will determine whether you are required to submit a property or line survey. Generally, if it is unclear whether you will meet a required setback, impervious surface limits, or some other requirement of the ordinance related to the boundaries or physical aspects of a property, a certificate of survey will be required. If you already have had a survey completed, please submit a copy as part of your application to determine whether it is sufficient to avoid the need for another survey.
REQUIRED LOT SURVEYS: A certificate of survey is required for construction of all new dwellings on lots 10 acres or less in size. In other cases, the Zoning Administrator will determine whether you are required to submit a property or line survey. Generally, if it is unclear whether you will meet a required setback, impervious surface limits, or some other requirement of the ordinance related to the boundaries or physical aspects of a property, a certificate of survey will be required. If you already have had a survey completed, please submit a copy as part of your application to determine whether it is sufficient to avoid the need for another survey.
APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS: The following information shall be provided as part of an application for a land/shoreline alteration:
a. A sketch indicating the following:
i. Location of lake or river
ii. Approximate property boundaries
iii. Location of existing buildings, stairways, decks, boathouses and other structures on the property
iv. Location of proposed land alteration
v. Show where erosion control measures will be installed during construction
vi. Show any permanent erosion control measures, if applicable (i.e. retaining walls, swales, etc…)
vii. Indicate the slope/topography of the site before and after the proposed project. A hand drawn sketch is sufficient for most situations.

Sewer Certificate of Compliance (if not served by public sewer and the property in question has a dwelling). If the sewer has been found failing, documentation from a licensed sewer designer indicating the type, size and location of a replacement sewer system. In some cases, a full design for a replacement sewer may be required.
Proposed method for managing stormwater and preventing erosion/sedimentation during construction (temporary stormwater management). Discuss/show type of erosion control practices (i.e. silt fence, biologs, etc…) to be used and location of installation.
Proposed method for managing stormwater and preventing erosion/sedimentation after construction (permanent stormwater management – what type of vegetation are you planting, are there retaining walls involved, rainwater gardens, rainwater barrels, directing roof runoff via gutters away from a lake or waterbody, etc…)
Preliminary Building Plans of your project, if applicable. The plans must include:
o Floor plans for all levels, including basements. All rooms should be labeled (i.e. bedroom, kitchen, etc…).
o Elevation (side view) drawings of the exterior
o Accurate depictions of how the building will fit in with the landscape. Where land will be re-graded or excavated, show how the building and adjacent land would look before and after completion of the proposed project.
o Note the height of the building, as measured to the highest peak. For walkout basements or other situations where heights vary from one part of the building to another, please contact us for how to calculate height.
o Length, width and other outside dimensions
o Total square feet of inside floor area
o Total square foot of ground covered by the building
o Width of roof overhangs/eaves
o In cases where a building is being remodeled or added on to, clearly note what portions are existing and which are proposed.
Topographic contours at 2 foot intervals and source of contour interval, if required by the Zoning Administrator or Board of Adjustment. A contour map of the surrounding properties may also be required.
Place stakes on your property to show the location of your project and any other relevant locations, such as bluff setbacks, the ordinary high water level, well locations, sewer location, etc… These will assist the Township during the site visit prior to the hearing.
A current Certificate of Survey is required for most variance applications, including on all lots smaller than 20,000 square feet in size. Surveys will be required whenever the requested variance relates to a lake or property line setback or when measurements are essential to the application. The survey must show the same information as outlined below for site plans, unless one or more items are waived by the Zoning Administrator as being irrelevant to the application.
A site plan with the following information, at a minimum*:
o Legal Description of Site (can be located on most property tax statements)
o Location of the subject property (a copy of the tax map can be used)
o Name of record owner/title holder of property

o Existing and/or proposed square footage of any driveway (gravel and paved), access roads, parking, sidewalks, decks, stairways, retaining walls, patios or other impervious (hard) surfaces that sheds rainwater. Any overhangs or cantilevers that extend more than 24 inches from the foundation shall be included in this calculation. Landscaping underlain with a fabric or barrier designed to allow water to pass through is not considered impervious.
o Proposed landscaping and screening plans, if applicable, showing location and type of grasses, shrubs, trees or landscaping material to be used.
o Proposed grading plan, showing any areas to be graded or otherwise disturbed so that bare soil is exposed. Note the dimensions and overall size of the area to be disturbed (if greater than one acre, a separate stormwater permit will be required) and the amount of material to be moved as part of the project (brought in, removed or moved around) in cubic yards. Show how the land will look before and after the proposed project.
o Approximate location of existing and proposed water courses, wooded areas, wetlands, and other significant physical features
A description of the expected timeline for any work related to the proposed use.
* Under certain circumstances and for projects that require a public hearing, even when not initially required by the Zoning Administrator, the Planning Commission or Board of Adjustment may require a survey of the property and/or buildings on the site, a stormwater management plan, a landscaping plan, architectural drawings, engineering or architectural certifications/professional opinions, construction plans, photos or other detailed information when determined necessary to make an informed decision. In order to expedite your application and avoid delays, the Zoning Administrator may recommend the submittal of this information as part of the initial application or at least two weeks prior to the meeting.

The Alexandria Township zoning ordinance establishes three general categories of “home occupations,” which shall include any business or other use not typically associated with residential use or which would generate nuisance characteristics beyond those normally expected in a residential setting. Activities conducted as a hobby shall not constitute a home occupation. The three general categories are defined as follows:
Home Occupation, Low Activity (LAHO). Any non-residential use where there is effectively no evidence of the activity taking place on the property which is visible or audible from neighboring properties or from a public road right-of-way. Such uses shall be clearly incidental and secondary to the primary use of the property for residential purposes. These are allowed in all zoning districts without permits or special approval.
Home Occupation, Moderate Activity (MAHO). Any non-residential use where there is only indirect evidence of the activity taking place on the property which is visible or audible from neighboring properties or from a public road right-of-way. Such uses shall be clearly secondary to the primary use of the property for residential purposes. These require an interim use permit in all residential and shoreland zoning districts and are prohibited in any commercial or industrial zoning districts.
Home Occupation, High Activity (HAHO). Any non-residential use where there is direct evidence of the activity taking place on the property which is visible or audible from neighboring properties or from a public road right-of-way or which generates regular and sustained nuisance characteristics beyond those normally associated with residential properties in the same or similar neighborhood. These are allowed only in the Rural Conservation Residential, Rural Residential and Commercial-Urban zoning districts and require an interim use permit.
The following uses shall not be considered a home occupation for the purposes of this ordinance:
The display for sale of up to no more than two (2) motor vehicles, trailers, pieces of farm machinery or similar items, or any combination of such items, at any given time.
Note the following: 1) # of customers/day; 2) # of truck deliveries/day; 3) whether you will live in the same building/property as the home occupation; 4) whether there will be outdoor storage and how large an area will be covered; 5) how many parking spaces will be provided separate from those necessary for those living at the home; 6) your hours of operation; 7) whether you will have signage, location and size; 8) any factors that may negatively impact neighboring properties or traffic flow and how you will minimize those effects; and 9) how many employees there will be outside of those living at the home.
Note the following are requirements of all mining operations in Corinna Township:
The proposed subdivision shall not create non-conforming lots and not affect existing roads, alleys, drainage, etc.

As measured to highest point above ground.
As measured to outermost point. Specify if measurement is in inches or feet.
A building permit is also required for construction of a fence or wall that will be more than 7 feet in height above grade, or for construction of a retaining wall that is more than 4 feet in height from the bottom of the footing to the top of the wall.
Site Plan showing lot dimensions and locations of existing and proposed structure(s) including location of proposed fence or wall gates.
Cross Section and/or Elevations of side views showing:
Certificate of Survey from a licensed surveyor indicating the location of the property line and the proposed fence, unless:
If the fence is over seven (7) feet in height, also provide:
That side of the fence considered to be the face, the side not attached to the primary structural supports, shall face the abutting property or street right of way.
Allowable fencing material: Approved fencing material includes stone, brick, finished wood, rigid plastic, chainlink, split rail fences or other materials commonly used for fencing. Other materials may only be approved by conditional use permit except that the following types of fences are prohibited unless specifically allowed otherwise: barbed wire, electrical fencing, razor wire, creosote lumber, chicken wire (unless used for the enclosure of gardens), concrete block or poured concrete, plastic webbing, plywood or pressed wood. Notwithstanding the above prohibitions, commercial available snow fencing may be allowed between November 1 and March 15 of each calendar year.
Fence height is measured from 6 inches above the ground surface (i.e. a 6 foot fence with a 6 inch gap between the ground and the bottom of the fence is considered 6 feet tall)
Specify inches or feet
Building coverage is limited to 15% of the lot. A building is anything with a roof, including, but not limited to, roofed decks, patios, screen porches or gazebos - whether or not they have solid walls.
Total impervious coverage is limited to 25% of the lot. Impervious surfaces are any hard surface that sheds water, including, but not limited to, buildings, gravel or paved driveways, sidewalks, patios, decks or any landscaped area with plastic weed barrier.
You will need to attach to your application a listing of your estimate of impervious coverage on the lot if you will be close to these limits. If the percentages appear to be within about 1 percentage point of these limits, you will likely be required to submit a survey of your impervious surfaces and lot boundaries from a professional surveyor.
The percentage of your lot that may be covered depends on the size of your lot and the zoning district in which it is located. For more information, contact the Zoning Administrator.
Impervious surfaces are any hard surface that sheds water, including, but not limited to, buildings, gravel or paved driveways, sidewalks, patios, decks or any landscaped area with plastic weed barrier.
example: Home - 1200 sq ft, Garage = 600 sq ft, Front sidewalk - 200 sq ft, Rear sidewalk - 100 sq ft. TOTAL - 2100 sq ft

Land disturbing activities less than five thousand (5,000) square feet are not required to obtain a land disturbance permit, but must comply with the following:
a. Property and streets adjacent to the site of a land disturbance shall be protected from sediment deposition. This shall be accomplished by preserving a well vegetated buffer strip around the lower perimeter of the land disturbance, by installing perimeter controls such as sediment barriers, filters, dikes or sediment basins, by stockpiling soil in appropriate locations or by a combination of such measures.
b. All storm sewer inlets which are functioning during construction shall be protected so that sediment laden water will not enter the conveyance system without first being filtered or otherwise treated to remove sediment.
c. Property and waterways downstream from development sites shall be protected from flooding and erosion due to increases in the volume, velocity and peak water flow rate of stormwater runoff. Concentrated storm runoff water leaving a development's site must be discharged directly into a well defined natural or manmade off site receiving channel or pipe.
d. A permanent vegetative cover shall be established in denuded areas not otherwise permanently stabilized forthwith after land disturbing activity is complete.
e. Whenever construction vehicles access public roads, provision shall be made to minimize the transport of sediment by runoff or vehicle tracking onto the paved surface. Where sediment is transported onto a public road surface, the roads shall be cleaned thoroughly at the end of each day.
f. All temporary and permanent erosion and sediment control practices shall be maintained and repaired to assure the continued performance of their intended function.
g. All temporary erosion and sediment control measures shall be removed within thirty (30) days after final site stabilization is achieved or after the temporary measures are no longer needed.
NOTE: The land disturbance permit does not replace, eliminate or satisfy the need for any other permits required by any other public or private entity. For instance:
1. Whether you are a professional excavator or homeowner, in accordance with Minnesota State law, you must contact Gopher State One Call (GSOC) before starting any excavation project if you are using any machine-powered equipment of any kind, or explosives.
2. A Minnesota pollution control agency (MPCA) NPDES construction stormwater (CSW) permit is required for construction activity that results in land disturbance of equal to or greater than one acre or a common plan of development or sale that disturbs greater than one acre.
3. Any project which involves filling or disturbance of wetlands may require a permit or be prohibited. Contact Morrison County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) with any questions at (320) 616-2479.
4. Any work within a public right of way may require a permit from the appropriate authority.
