After some construction issues at Picklehead's Roadhouse Event Center in the Sunrise Beach area, a variance has been granted by the Camden County Board of Adjustment (BOA) for a setback encroachment. The site development plan and final plat to finalize the rezoning to B-2 general commercial and a conditional use permit — recommended by the Camden County Planning Commission in January and approved by the Camden County Commission in April — have been submitted to the Camden County P&Z Office.
Applicant Dan Laubach, property owner through Laubach Properties, attended the Aug. 27 BOA meeting to explain his need for a variance of five feet from the 20-foot required side setback on the east side of the 16.3 acre property on Route TT.
The variance is for bathroom facilities already under construction.
Construction began at the site earlier this summer.
According to P&Z Administrator Kim Willey, the land was cleared before Laubach got a land disturbance permit and a stop work order was issued on the construction in July as it got underway before the site plan and final plat were approved.
Laubach explained to the board that they mistakenly thought they were 20 feet off the property line due to the brush and woods in that area. A survey of the property had not yet been done.
Laubach added that he had purchased his property prior to P&Z implementation in 2004 and was not knowledgeable about all of its requirements.
Adjacent property owner James Jackson of Ozark Ready Mix sent a letter to the board stating that he had no objections to the variance.
No opposition was made, and the BOA approved the variance.
All that remains is for Willey to approve the site plan and final plat.
The variance had to be granted before the department could act on the site plan and final plat.
Picklehead's Roadhouse Event Center has been advertising its grand opening to occur during Bike Week at the Lake Sept. 11-14.
The opening will feature multiple bands and vendors with camping available.
