Steven Friendshuh

Steven Friendshuh, owner of Hathaway Lodge LLC, spoke at the July 21 Sawyer County Board of Supervisors meeting in favor of his rezone request of 18.9 acres of land near Little Sissabagama Lake from Forestry One (F-1) to Residential Recreational One (RR!) for lakeshore cottages. His request was denied.

In a 10-4 vote, well-known local developer, Steven Friendshuh, was denied by the Sawyer County Board of Supervisors on his rezone request of 18.9 acres of shoreland area from Forestry One (F1) to Residential Recreational One (RR1) near Little Sissabagama in the Town of Edgewater for the purpose of building lakeshore cottages.

Even though Friendshuh obtained a majority of the board members’ votes, he needed 11 for his request to pass because at least 50 percent of neighboring properties owners had filed a petition in protest of the rezone that required the request obtain at least three-quarters approval for passage.
