Although there was no formal vote Monday, the board directed township attorney Ron Bultje to draft a resolution of denial — citing concerns over traffic and residents’ complaints.
About a dozen people complained about the proposed establishment at a public hearing in December 2010.
Frifeldt and Tyke told the board they’ve heard from many people who are excited about having another dining choice in the area. Tyke described the proposed establishment as “bright and cheery, with great views of the water.”
Township Supervisor John Nash said the board “could vote differently” next month on the resolution to deny the project, but only two board members — Ron Lindquist and Judith Miljan — spoke in favor of the business on Monday.
The formal vote is expected at the board’s May 9 meeting.
