Sturgeon Bay Town Council held its first meeting since the April election. All former council members remained intact with Mayor David Ward as a lengthy agenda of items was dealt with on Tuesday.
After the mayors’ committee appointments were unanimously approved, the council passed approximately $2,455,000 in general obligation promissory notes that would be repaid within ten years.
In other matters, Commercial/Light Manufacturing (C-3) was rezoned to General commercial (C-1) for various parcels as well as the rezoning of property owned by Midwest Wire on Lansing Avenue from C-3 to Light Industrial ((I -1) after a second reading.
Two housing projects slated for this summer are moving forward after second readings regarding the rezoning of a planned unit development. Cherry Point Investments is building a 68-unit multi-family residential complex on Egg Harbor Road, while another 26-unit apartment development by SC Swiderski, LLC is planned for the former Sunset School site on North Eighth Avenue.
Proposed Tax Increment District #6 had established limits for several types of projects and received council approval. Next Tuesday, it will be presented to the Joint Review Panel for final approval of the creation of a new TID that includes much of Egg Harbor Road.
Prior to the business portion of the meeting, Mayor David Ward presented Door County Medical Center CEO Brian Stephens with a plaque recognizing DCMC’s efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
