Lighthouse tower project gets PUD extension

The Sturgeon Bay Common Council voted to approve a one-year extension of the Planning Unit Development (PUD) for the Door County Maritime Museum’s maritime lighthouse tower project Tuesday.  The request was approved by a 5-2 vote.  Councilmember Kelly Avenson attempted to put an amendment to the make the PUD extension contingent upon a lakebed lease from the state being obtained, but the motion was defeated.  District 3 Alderperson Dan Williams says the land is private property and an amendment would only muddy the waters.



The two-year PUD is near expiration so the DCMM is requesting the extension.  The 10-story tower will have an observation deck on top and is a $5.5 million project that has been in the works for several years with hopes of a groundbreaking later this summer.
