Quarry group ready for next battle

Months after declaring victory over a proposed recreational vehicle park, residents near the former Leatham Smith quarry near Pinney County Park are preparing for their next fight. Earlier this month, the Margaret Dreutzer Trust and developer Tom Goelz filed a preliminary conceptual plan for a subdivision with Door County Land Use Services. Located off of Bay Shore Drive, the Quarry Bluff subdivision would consist of 43 lots ranging from less to half an acre to close to three acres. While the development is not as condensed as the planned RV village, members of the Bay Shore Property Owners Association have many of the same concerns as they did before because of its location within the Niagara Escarpment. Homeowner Brenda Lange says the issues they had before are left unresolved.

Lange urges residents to voice their concerns ahead of time as no public hearing will be held to discuss the preliminary conceptual plan prior to the Door County Resource Planning Committee on June 3rd.  Plans for an RV Village were denied by the Door County Resource Planning Committee and other local bodies of government last year. Since the developers withdrew their appeal, the Bay Shore Property Owners Association engaged in talks with the trust that owns the land in hopes of protecting the parcel from development, but Lange says they went nowhere.
