A resolution to the fight over the former Leatham Smith quarry site in Sturgeon Bay will have to wait a little longer. On Tuesday the Door County Zoning Board of Adjustment granted Quarry Bluff Development LLC a postponement of their upcoming appeal hearing regarding their proposed recreational vehicle resort near George K. Pinney County Park. In a letter signed by developers Mike Parent and Tom Goelz, they are negotiating possible alternative uses for the site which could eliminate the need for the hearing. The Quarry Neighborhood Action Group has opposed the project because of a number of environmental and safety concerns. Brenda Lange says the six-month delay and future uncertainty with the site is taking its toll.
The developers filed the appeal back in April after the Door County Resource Planning Committee and the Town of Sevastopol’s board and plan commission denied their Conditional Use Permit.
