Granary move set for June 24 pending council approval

The historic Teweles & Bandeis Granary looks to be making the move back to the west side of Sturgeon Bay on June 24 if the city council makes the final approval on Tuesday.  Acccording to a Sturgeon Bay Historical Society social media post late Friday, all moving permits have been approved and the move for the granary is set for 5am on Monday, June 24.  The post states that all city signatures for street closures have been obtained and contractors are ready to make move.  The final decision rests with the Sturgeon Bay Common Council on which parcel of land the granary will finally call home.  The DNR established the Ordinary High Water Mark for both parcels at 92 Maple Street and 100 Maple Street which is being challenged in court by a group of local citizens.  The granary was moved to the east side in March of 2018 temporarily to avoid being torn down by a demolition order given by the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department.  The regular meeting of the council is set for 7 pm on Tuesday at City Hall.
