Wulf and Chaudoir part of lawsuit challenging Sturgeon Bay waterfront settlement

Two proponents of the failed Lindgren Hotel on the Sturgeon Bay west-side waterfront are appealing a Department of Natural Resources ruling that would have settled the controversy.  Former Waterfront Redevelopment Authority member Cap Wulf and retired Door County Economic Development Corporation Director Bill Chaudoir are among twenty-two citizens who have appealed a recent DNR ruling that would have settled the dispute about what waterfront property is available for development and what must be reserved for public use.


Wulf has been an outspoken critic of Friends of the Sturgeon Bay Public Waterfront, a group that opposed development of a hotel on property they maintained was reserved for public use.  The Friends group prevailed in a lawsuit in which it was determined a significant portion of the land where the hotel was to be developed is filled lake-bed where commercial development cannot occur.


On February 1st, an appeal of the DNR ruling was filed.  You can see the names of all the parties to the appeal by clicking on the link with this story at
