A plan to build a campground in Jacksonport will make its next stop at an upcoming Door County Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting after the town board gave it their blessing for a conditional use permit earlier this week at a special session. The meeting was needed after a group of Jacksonport residents made an appeal against the 130-plus site campground, citing safety and noise concerns. After residents opposing the development spoke, Jacksonport Town Chairperson Randy Halstead says Steve Parent of Baudhuin Incorporated, who worked with the prospective campground owners Cary and Cherie Lauritzen on the plans, spoke to address many of their concerns.
No timetable has been set for when the Door County Zoning Board of Adjustment will hear the plans. The campground has already been approved by the county’s Resource Planning Committee.
