Door County’s southernmost town will start its annual town meeting at 6:30 pm on April 20. Immediately following that meeting, the Town Board of Supervisors will conduct its regular monthly meeting, and the proposed Dollar General store is on that agenda as an update.
“The update will just be an update to the board about where I’m at in the approval process for the zoning permit,” said JoAnn Neinas, town clerk and zoning administrator. “The main things I’m waiting for are the septic approval and information on signage.”
A developer wants to build a 9,100-square-foot building on a vacant lot next to the Brussels General Store on County DK. He’ll then lease it back to Dollar General. It’s the same developer who wanted to build a store first in Sister Bay and then in the Town of Egg Harbor. Neither of those proposals went through.
Brussels does have its own zoning ordinance, adopted in 2002. If the developer meets all the requirements of that code, permission could be granted. Once the application is complete, Neinas said she will again share it with the Town Board of Supervisors.
