construction on certain designated vacant

land in the City of Wadena. (the "interim ordi-

the interim ordinance has occurred and rec-

ommends the extension of the study period

and moratorium for the "Highway 10 mora-

moratorium area. The interim ordinance al-

lows for the extension of the moratorium pe-
