Village of Egg Harbor Administrator Ryan Heise says he knows the comments are coming regarding a proposed mixed-use development coming to its downtown. Last month, Creative Business Services proposed "The Residences of Egg Harbor" at the village's plan commission meeting. Replacing a gas station and convenience store, the proposed development includes first-floor retail space and two floors of condominiums. Heise has seen other communities in the county have to address concerns like architecture and oversaturation when other large-scale projects have been proposed. He says the state statutes concerning the conditional use permitting process have changed in recent years.
A public hearing is scheduled for March 11th to discuss the proposed development. In the meanwhile, Egg Harbor is busy with other projects on the horizon including improvements to Church Street, Highway 42, and its beach.
