Survey shows people want access to west side waterfront

Sturgeon Bay residents believe there's room for public access and commercial shipping needs along the west side waterfront.  That follows the survey conducted for the Ad hoc West Waterfront Planning Committee.  The survey, conducted by the consulting firm SEH, covered four areas.  While the majority of the respondents did not want the west waterfront to have a more industrial, grittier look, they did favor a public parkway connecting Sawyer Park with the Door County Maritime Museum, access for sightseeing and fishing and allowing some space for tugs to moor.  Jim Schuessler, Executive Director of the Door County Economic Development Corporation, says the future use of the site is now clearer.



Schuessler adds that concerns over tugs all along the waterfront may be eased. Some of the smaller vessels may be pulled from service because they don't meet EPA regulations.
