With the mayoral election in Sturgeon Bay only two weeks away, both candidates are making their views known on the future of the Teweles & Brandeis Granary. David Ward, currently a member of the city council, says there is still a struggle to determine the ultimate use of the historic granary. At last Tuesday’s candidate forum, Ward shared the two questions that need to be answered before a final decision should be made on the granary.
He says if either fails the project will not be successful. Shawn Fairchild, a member of the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society (SBHS), says he would want the granary project to move forward if he was the mayor had the deciding vote.
The city council meeting Tuesday will consider a development agreement between the city and the SBHS Foundation for the granary. The Sturgeon Bay mayor race will be decided on the April 2nd election.
