The resolution that was ultimately adopted approved the PUD Concept Plan, the shoreland setback variance, but denied the rooftop restaurant ventilation equipment variance, the height variance and the property line setback variance.

The resolution passed 3-2 with Council members Buchanan and Koch voting against the resolution.

The city council action differed from the Planning Commission’s approval on Monday. The Planning Commission had approved the rooftop ventilation variance.

In October, the Planning Commission voted 6-0 in favor for denial of the development application.

In December, the Wayzata City Council passed Resolution 50-2019 denying the PUD Concept Plan and Zoning Ordinance Amendments for the redevelopment of Boatworks.

The main discussion points then were the height of the building, exterior design, pedestrian access to docks and lakeshore and the proposed public benefits.
