The Sturgeon Bay Common Council will get an update on the plans to redevelop the west waterfront during its regular Tuesday meeting. In a memo sent by administrator Josh Van Lieshout, the city is currently working with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to obtain a lakebed lease for the future home of the grain elevator after Coleman Engineering performed two soil borings at 100 East Maple Street last month. According to the memo, the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society still needs to evaluate the existing pilings at 92 East Maple Street, complete a remediation plan for the site, and submit the final project plan, budget, and financing for approval. The council will also review the recommendations made by the Ad Hoc West Waterfront Planning Committee and develop a plan of action. The meeting will take place inside the council chambers at Sturgeon Bay City Hall beginning at 7 p.m.
In addition, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council is meeting at 4 p.m. today (Monday) to approve the city’s 2020 budget and set a public hearing date for the same time on November 4th.
