WPS Looks To Build Natural Gas Gate Station On Neenah Avenue

 
Pictured is a facility similar to the WPS gate station being proposed for Neenah Avenue. The facility pictured is larger than the one being proposed, which would be located within a fenced area that is 78 x 225 feet. The fenced area would be 88 feet from the Neenah Avenue right-of-way.

A public hearing will be held at Wednesday's Sturgeon Bay Plan Commission meeting on a proposal to construct a natural gas regulator facility on South Neenah Avenue.

The proposed facility would be located on the west side of Neenah, between Jib Street and Leeward Street, across from WireTech Fabricators.

Community Development Director Marty Olejniczak says Wisconsin Public Service needed to enlarge its existing natural gas gate station at the corner of Neenah Avenue and Yew Street, and at the same time the city was in the process of negotiating the purchase of future industrial park land along Neenah Avenue from Roger Anderson. But because that property had the gas pipeline running through it, it reduced the viability of the land for industrial buildings. So the city reached an agreement with WPS to relocate the gas line in exchange for providing a new site for the upgraded gate station.

The city has initiated the process of rezoning the new site from agricultural to industrial, but the conditional use is still required due to the time it takes for a zoning map amendment to become effective.

If the plan is approved, the old site at Neenah and Yew would be available for development.

Wednesday's Plan Commission meeting is at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
