ST. JOSEPH The city is stepping in to make sure an expansion project at a popular beach-side restaurant won’t threaten the view from the bluff in St. Joseph.
Silver Beach Pizza wants to build a deck on top of their restaurant, but some commissioners fear it would block the view of the Whirlpool Fountain.
Silver Beach Pizza presented their design at a meeting Thursday night, but commissioners did not approve the project. They tell WSJM they won't approve anything that blocks even a small part of the fountain view.
Silver Beach Pizza's owner has not decided if they'll try to come up with another design.
