Neighbors File Gatsby’s Appeals

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Neighbors of a new restaurant and piano bar opening in the former Seaweed Café building have filed three appeals of decisions made by town officials regarding permits for the establishment.


Gatsby’s, which is owned by Charlotte Gill of Southwest Harbor, is set to open Friday, Jan. 29.

Bob Bosserman filed the appeals on behalf of his wife, Erika Shriner, and himself, along with John Jacobson, Clifford and Crystal Noyes, Carol Williams and Carolyn Mattingly. All but Ms. Mattingly own property that abuts Gatsby’s. Ms. Mattingly is included as an interested party because she accesses her home by a driveway that runs past the restaurant.

The board of appeals is to consider the three issues at a meeting scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 10.

The appeals will not affect Ms. Gill’s planned opening of Gatsby’s.
