Fulcher & Bycheism Boat Wash Permits Approved By Town Board

October 6, 2017

town hall signThe SUP (Special Use Permit) for Chris Fulcher/Point Pride boat wash / travel lift / boat yard facility has been approved by a 5-0 vote. A representative of Chris Fulcher agreed to complete the building’s roof, and that all sanding/painting activity would be inside. The building would be modified to insure boats were completely inside. Commissioner David White added a list of conditions regarding environmental concerns and the handling of hazardous materials, which were agreed to.

Several citizens spoke both for and against the project.

A SUP for a boat wash at Knute Byshheim’s Whittaker Creek property (the subject of a Sept 22 public hearing) was also passed by a 4-1 vote. The same conditions provided by Commissioner David White were applied. In addition White moved to add raising a sunken boat at Whittaker Creek as a condition. Byshheim would not agree, stating it was the boat owner’s responsibility. The town attorney noted that the board has a right to impose conditions that are reasonably related to the SUP. Commissioner David White was the lone vote against the Knute Byshheim SUP, saying he would only support it with the condition that the sunken boat be raised.

Mr. Bysheim’s conditions:
The Special Use Permit approval is subject to the following conditions approved by the Town Board of Commissioners:

(1) This approval is subject to the condition that the business owner be compliant with all CAMA, State, Local, and County Laws and processes and procedures/regulations concerning the installation and operation of the proposed boat wash; and

(2) That a standard procedure include a shroud to be in place during boat wash operations as indicated and consented to in the Planning Board meeting; and
