After a six-hour plus meeting Tuesday evening, the Sevastopol Plan Commission voted unanimously to deny the recommending approval of the Conditional Use Permit of a controversial Class A Motorhome village at the old stone-quarry on Bay Shore Drive.
Quarry Bluff LLC filed for a Conditional Use Permit application last month to build a 117-unit village for recreational vehicles located near George Pinney County Park north of Sturgeon Bay. The 57-acre parcel on the site of an old quarry would be developed by Tom Goelz and Mike Parent in the same style as similar resorts in Michigan. The developers presented a comprehensive plan covering 17 aspects of the project and answered questions on Tuesday night.
Supervisor and Plan Commission member Jim Nellen told the developers that they had put the plan commission in a difficult position by not providing enough complete information in the application.
Over 20 people, many of which were members of the Bayshore Property Owners Association, spoke in opposition of the development citing environmental and safety concerns. The Sevastopol Plan Commission ultimately voted 6-0 to deny the proposal and will refer concerns over the inconsistencies of the application back to the town board that meets next Monday. The Sevastopol Plan Commission meeting concluded shortly before midnight Tuesday.
