  • The Camden County Commission took final action on a planning and zoning request that opens the door for a westside entertainment venue to build a small amphitheater on a 16-acre parcel of land. The Camden County Commission approved the rezoning request for Laubach Properties to upgrade the designation of the land from A-1 agriculture to B-2 general commercial.
    The CUP allows outdoor entertainment in B-2 zoning. Representatives of Laubach Properties, which also owns Franky & Louie's Beach Front Bar & Grill on the lake to the northwest of the property included in the request, have said that the intention for the new development is to open a small amphitheater.
    The Village of Sunrise Beach also reviewed the case through its planning and zoning due to its Urban Services Boundary Agreement with Camden County. The agreement gives the village a say in zoning cases within a mile and a half of its boundary, requiring the county take the village's official opinion under consideration as well as requiring a supermajority of the county planning commission to pass a motion at odds with the village's stance.
    The city limits of Sunrise Beach extend down Route TT far enough for the site to fall within the boundary agreement. The official opinion of the village concluded, in accordance with county P&Z administration, that the B-2 zoning was compatible with the area.
    The developer was required to complete a traffic study and submit a more detailed development plan before getting final approval. Surrounding land use includes A-1 to the north and west, B-2 to the south and I-1 industrial to the east. In the Camden County Master Plan, the Future Development Map identifies the property as Suburban Neighborhood. Sunrise Beach officials will discuss a petition filed by Laubach for annexation into the village.
