Jacksonport Residents File Lawsuit Over Campground

A dozen Jacksonport residents have filed a lawsuit in an attempt to overturn the conditional use permit (CUP) granted by the Door County Resource Planning Committee and on appeal in a 3-2 vote on May 1 by the Door County Board of Adjustment to Cary and Cheri Lauritzen to operate an RV campground on farmland off the intersection of Bagnall Road and Highway 57 on the south side of Jacksonport. The complaint filed by the plaintiffs’ attorney, Matthew Fleming of the Madison-based Murphy Desmond law firm, claims that the CUP was issued “based upon errors of law, was arbitrary and unreasonable, and unsupported by evidence presented at the hearing…” The complaint asks that the CUP issuance be reversed and that the plaintiffs be reimbursed for reasonable costs.
