The Quarry RV project hit another roadblock Wednesday afternoon when the Door County Resource Planning Committee rejected the developers’ application for a conditional use permit. The panel weighed 17 criteria. It found that the applicants did not meet five of those measures and that no condition could be placed on the application which would bring it within compliance. The committee felt that the burden of proof was not met regarding the questions of whether surrounding property values would decrease, if the proposed use for the land was similar to other uses in the area, that the project was in accord with the Sevastopol comprehensive plan, whether the construction would create noise, odor, or dust, or if there would be an adverse impact on neighborhood traffic congestion.
The developers must now choose whether they intend to appeal the decision to the Board of Adjustment. If the Resource Planning Committee decision does get challenged, it is an entirely new hearing. Both sides will present their cases again, and new evidence and data are allowed to be submitted.
