Over 200 people attended two community meetings this week at Sturgeon Bay High School to make sure their thoughts on the future of the Westside Waterfront were heard. It was part of a weeklong effort by the ad hoc West Waterfront Committee to gather more information from the community before they begin making recommendations. The committee also gathered feedback via surveys, a meeting with state officials, and conversations at the Door County Community Foundation. Ad hoc committee chair Laurel Hauser says it was great to hear people believe they could have public access and keep their working waterfront.
The committee met again Thursday to recap the past few days so they can begin developing a plan and make recommendations.
