PLYMOUTH – The Crystal Lake area appears to be the focus for the town of Plymouth’s road projects this year.

The Town Board approved a paving project for Ridge Road on the south shore of the lake and discussed paving nearby Birch Tree Road as well.

Town Chairman Warren Luedke told the supervisors that the Sheboygan County Highway Department submitted an estimate of $22,859 for blacktopping 900 feet of Ridge Road.

“That’s a lot cheaper than what we budgeted for it, $24,000,” Luedke noted.

The board voted unanimously to accept the proposal.

“I’ve gotten a lot of calls on Birch Tree Road,” Luedke continued. “That’s a real narrow road and there’s lots of problems there.”

Since part of Birch Tree is in the town of Rhine, Luedke said he contacted officials there. “They said go ahead and put it out for bids and they will pay their share.”

Luedke said he would contact the county Highway Department to get some idea of what the paving would cost. The board could then determine whether it could afford to go ahead with the work.

The board approved the following conditional use permits:

. To Oliver McKay to operate a plumbing and heating business at N5463 State 57 (the former Plymouth Motorsports building).

To Scott Mohs to operate a mulch. sales business, All-Around Services, at N6114 County OJ.

. To Justin and Ashley Fink to construct a chicken coop and raise chickens on their residentially zoned property at W6273 Mullet Lane.

A land division request on Oak Road was tabled until it could be clarified what size the newly-created lot would have to be to meet town zoning rules or if the new lot would have to be larger than proposed.
