'Festival Pier' On Sturgeon Bay's Wish List Of Harbor Improvements

 

Construction of a "festival pier" where cruise ships, commercial boats and tall ships could dock is one of the projects included in Sturgeon Bay's three-year harbor improvement plan.

The three-year plan, officially called a Statement of Intentions, was recently approved by the city's Harbor Commission and will come before the City Council Tuesday evening.

The SOI needs to be submitted to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation by April 1 to be eligible for 80% grant funding through the Harbor Assistance Program. 

The proposed pier, which would be located on the city's west side between the two downtown bridges, would be 20 to 30 feet wide and about 200 feet long, and would be widened on the end.

Other proposed projects in the SOI include docking improvements at Stone Harbor Resort and improvements related to the possible relocation of the tugboat fleet from Sawyer Dock to the boat launch basin at Sunset Park.

City officials say submission of the SOI does not obligate the city to undertake any of the projects but inclusion on the SOI will potentially lead to grant funding.
