The citizen wanted to know if they would be required to put a house on the lot.,” according to the unofficial meeting minutes. “Attorney Skilton informed the council that normally they would have to put a house on the lot; however they could allow them to put up just a storage unit if they chose to do so if they followed the special permit process. The council said they would like to see the plans,but were open to discuss it further with the person. “
