The Door County Board of Adjustment can decide to approve, deny, or make changes to a plan to create a campground in Jacksonport when it meets Tuesday night. A group of residents has been vocal in their opposition to the campground, stating the influx of visitors to the town would create traffic concerns near the intersection of Bagnall Road and State Highway 57 along with smell and noise concerns. Proponents of the campground point to the revenue potential it can bring to the town and its businesses. After 10 hours of testimony last week sent one of the two meetings into the early morning hours, Gay Pustaver, who along with Kathy Navis filed the appeal against the campground decision, can only wait.
The Door County Board of Adjustment will make their decision following discussion inside the Peninsula Room at the Door County Government Center beginning at 6:30 p.m. Pustaver says the group of 150 full and part-time residents will decide their next step following the board’s ruling.
