Plan commission tables Shipwrecked proposal

Opponents and proponents of a Shipwrecked Brew Pub and Restaurant expansion proposal in Egg Harbor filled up the open session in Tuesday’s Plan Commission meeting. The public comment session got to a point where Plan Commission Chair Cambria Mueller had to interject and ask speakers not to go back and forth in the public discussion. Concerns were brought up by speakers regarding the parking difficulties and the traffic concerns on Highway 42 running through town near the establishment. The concerns were echoed by some members of the commission who also clarified that they believe current parking and traffic difficulties were not started by Shipwrecked. However, they did feel that an addition consisting of more seating and a beer garden without relative parking would add to the issue. It was also mentioned the proposed expansion would have made it the largest restaurant in Door County. 

 

At the end of deliberation on the subject, Plan Commission members started to express mutual interest in tabling the discussion, and Mueller didn’t rule out revisiting the subject. 

 

 

Mueller made the motion to table the discussion, which passed unanimously, other than Jon Kolb and Chris Roedl being recused from the discussion and vote. The reviewed proposal can be found here.
