City approves facade changes to former Advocate building

The City of Sturgeon Bay has approved facade changes to the former Door County Advocate building on 3rd Avenue in Sturgeon Bay.  The Community Development Department's Aesthetic Design and Site Plan Review Board gave the okay to Shirley Weese Young to make the changes.  Those are part of a renovation project that will aid the neighboring Third Avenue Playhouse or TAP. Community Development Vice Chairman Chris Sullivan Robinson says the plan is more restoration than renovation.


Sullivan Robinson says such a restoration will compliment interior work that is currently underway.


The Shirley Weese Young Revocable Trust bought the property from the Advocate's parent company Gannett last December for nearly $384,000.
