Sturgeon Bay proposes all items on the agenda on Tuesday


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.
