GREENWOOD TWP - The proposed purchase and expansion of the Daisy Bay Resort on Lake Vermilion has been put on hold according to county officials. The proposed expansion included the installation of up to 43 recreational vehicle sites, expanded dockage, and ice fishing facilities.
Mary Anderson with the county’s planning department confirmed to the Timberjay on Friday that the case file on the property had been closed and would not be moving forward as planned.
Along Cty. Rd. 77, the former resort signs are gone and now a lone barrier reading “Private Drive” crosses what once was the resort’s entrance. The resort’s phone number has been disconnected and Google reports that the resort is now permanently closed. The Timberjay emailed Christine Schlotec, who had proposed to purchase and expand the facility, but Schlotec had not responded as of press time.
Schlotec’s proposal had faced stiff opposition from neighbors when it went before the St. Louis County Planning Commission this past winter. At two separate hearings, residents presented their own research on potential erosion and noise levels to member of the commission.
The county, too, had stiff recommendations for Schlotec regarding soil erosion and water runoff, but eventually did approve her conditional use permit application.
