Sturgeon Bay looking at promenade on west side along tugs

The Sturgeon Bay Ad Hoc West Waterfront Planning Committee is looking to balance a working waterfront and providing public access along the city’s waterfront.  The Ad Hoc committee met Tuesday evening to listen to alternatives presented by SEH Consultants who conducted recent workshops to gather public input.  With the Ordinary High Watermark under challenge, Co-Chair Laurel Hauser says the committee is not ready to make recommendations to the council at this point but would like to set the groundwork for progress to be made towards development.  She says a boardwalk is an option that is getting some consensus. 

 

 

 Hauser says getting the balance of both will be challenging, like keeping the tug boats located on the west side but is possible.  The Sturgeon Bay West Waterfront Planning Committee also discussed a potential maritime research facility known as a Niagara Estuary Reserve being located in the city in the future.
