TOWN OF DELAFIELD - During its meeting tonight, the Town Board will discuss whether it should move forward with the process to terminate the conditional use permit for JR Motorsports.

Last June, the town approved the conditional use permit for Watercrest Investments, which did business as JR Motorsports at N47-W28229 Lynndale Road. During an earlier Plan Commission meeting, the permit was tabled due to confusion by its members.

During the June 3, 2014 Plan Commission meeting, then-Town Chairman Paul Kanter and others on the commission often had a puzzled look on their faces.

“I personally don’t have an understanding of what your intention is for this property,” Kanter said, adding he was confused about how many businesses would be operating at the site. “I don’t understand what it happening here and it is very hard for me to make a decision.”

Current Town Chairman Larry Krause said JR Motorsports is in violation of its conditional use permit so the town will start termination proceedings.

The location appears to be mostly empty and a message left on the number listed for the business was not returned. Krause said he was not aware if it was still in operation.

If during tonight’s meeting the supervisors agree to pursue terminating the permit, a public hearing would be held before the Plan Commission’s next meeting.

The Town Board will meet following the 7 p.m. Board of Review meeting at Town Hall, N14-W30782 Golf Road.
