Historical Society open to new granary location

The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation wants to be a “good neighbor” when it comes to supporting the recommendation by the Sturgeon Bay Ad Hoc Waterfront Planning Committee to have the Teweles & Brandeis granary located closer to the Oregon Street Bridge corridor.  President Christie Weber says the organization is thrilled that the waterfront committee included the granary in future plans of the westside redevelopment, but that any new agreement with the city regarding the location would have to keep the structure on the state and national historic registry.  She also is concerned about possible additional costs for a change from the formerly approved and original site.



Weber adds that the process to get the national historic registry to approve any state approval for a change of location of the granary could take months.  The recommendation by the ad hoc committee cites that the alternative site would “frame” the west waterfront area with two tall buildings; the granary and the Door County Maritime Museum’s new lighthouse tower.  It would also be a more visible site that frees up more space and allows for a larger central public space on the waterfront.  The Sturgeon Bay Common Council will meet at 7 pm next Tuesday to discuss the new West Waterfront Redevelopment plan.   


Here is a link to the 41-page recommended plan.
