Troy approves comprehensive plan

After some last-minute changes to the language of the draft, the Troy Town Board voted in favor of the 2009-2029 comprehensive plan at its meeting Thursday, April 9.

The approval came after lengthy fine-tuning by the Plan Commission and a last-minute letter from St. Croix County Planning and Zoning Director David Fodroczi with further language changes and suggestions.

"It's unfortunate we have to do this tonight. I'd rather have the Plan Commission go through this first," said Town Chair Ray Knapp. The board, however, was able to address and change the few items detailed in the letter before ultimately passing the plan.

"We've done well as a town, and we are ready to move forward," said Supervisor Jan Cuccia. The full plan can be viewed at the Troy Town Hall or online at the town's Web site,

Constable's report

"Things are quiet" said Mel Hermansen during his monthly town constable report. Hermansen provided an update to a trespassing and snowmobiling incident at Pemble's Access over the winter. It was believed that the gate had to be unlocked with a town key, but somebody carefully dislodged it and forced it open.

"Other than that, things are pretty quiet," Hermansen said.

Weight limit

The Town Board will write a letter authorizing a short-term permit for Redline Tree Service, removing the weight restriction on Coulee Trail from Hwy. 35 westward for 300 feet. Hermansen will photograph the area for the town and, according to the agreement, Redline Tree Service will repair any damage that the stretch of Coulee Road incurs because of the easement.

Pemble's Access

The board has amended part of Chapter 120 of the Troy Town Code to modify the closing time of Pemble's Access to 30 minutes after sunset. This change was made to match the closing time of Glover Park.
