West side housing development moves forward

The Sturgeon Bay Finance/Purchasing & Building Committee took action on two considerations impacting development on the west side. 


The committee, headed by David Ward, voted unanimously to have the city continue negotiating a right-of-way acquisition extending Grant Avenue to Sawyer Drive.  The land parcel is owned by Tim Ruenger who is opposed to connecting the two roadways.  The City previously offered $9670 to acquire the 2.44 acres needed. 


According to Community Development Director Marty Olejniczak, the City of Sturgeon Bay may be obligated to connect the roadways due to a Department of Transportation memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Sturgeon Bay back in 2008.  That was from an access permit for the Hopf development that was never completed. 


The other approved consideration Tuesday night was the pre-annexation agreement for a $15 million project by Duquaine Development on West Oak Street/Sawyer Drive.  That action would have the city annex property from the Town of Nasawaupee.  The project would plan for eight 20-unit buildings for single-family housing.  That recommendation will now go before the common council at next Tuesday’s regular meeting.
