According to the Clay County web page, the Clay County Planning Commission and City of Vermillion Planning Commission meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. tonight (Dec. 9) has been cancelled.

The meeting that had been planned for tonight was a joint session of the Clay County and the City of Vermillion planning commissions to consider amendments, updates or changes to the comprehensive plan for the joint jurisdiction which is included in the city’s 2000-2020 Comprehensive Plan.

The two commissions, after taking action on the plan, were also scheduled to continue the hearing for a conditional use permit application for Nutrien Ag Solutions. The permit is needed to allow the company to go through with plans to construct an agricultural retail facility that would sell seed and dry and liquid fertilizer on 22 acres located at the southwest corner of the intersection of SD Highway 50 and 466th Avenue east of Vermillion.

At a joint meeting Oct. 28, the county planning commission voted to grant the conditional use permit. Members of the city planning commission members, however, voted to table the conditional use permit after learning that it does not meet with any of the goals, objectives or policies within the jointly approved comprehensive plan for the Joint Jurisdictional Zoning Area (JJZA) shared by the city or county and that it could be approved only after the comprehensive plan is amended to show this use within the future land use map.
