The Plan Commission for the Village of Sister Bay met Tuesday night to discuss the potential rezoning of waterfront property near Pebble Beach from commercial to residential. The proposal before the committee was whether Fred and Fuzzy’s, as well as other parcels that make up Little Sister Resort, should be sold to Lance Crane for a private, luxury residence. Public comment against the rezoning focused on worries over the loss of waterfront access for the general public, those who could not afford that amenity in any other situation. Chairwoman Denise Bhirdo says the village has opted not to rezone commercial property in the past due to those exact concerns.
Bhirdo was joined by Marge Grutzmacher, and Nate Bell in voting against the rezoning. The final vote was 3-2. It came after Commission Member Scott Baker made a motion to allow the property to be deemed residential, which failed.
