On Aug. 22, the Waushara County Zoning and Planning Board voted to rezone the old Coloma Meats property from Agriculture to M-1 Intensive Manufacturing. Although many people attended the meeting to voice their concerns and ask the board to deny the rezoning, the board members chose to approve Jesse Kessinich’s application. Coloma property owners collected 114 signatures on a petition and there were more than 12 letters submitted by citizens against this change of zoning as well as seven people that chose to speak. Kessinich, an employee, an investor, and an official from Pineries Bank, whom he is purchasing the building from, spoke in favor of the project. No neighbors attended that voiced a favorable opinion.
