Sturgeon Bay still working through granary agreement

The final 2019 Sturgeon Bay Common Council meeting Tuesday evening was one of the longer sessions of the year that included the future of the historic Tewels and Brandeis Granary.  After two hours of numerous agenda items being addressed, the council met in closed session regarding the development agreement between the city and the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation.  Only councilmember Kelly Avenson opposed going into closed session.



City Attorney James Kalny explained that the development agreement was at odds with the Ad Hoc West Waterfront Planning Committee’s recommendation of placing the granary on a different site other than the previously agreed upon Lot 92.  Prior to that discussion, Councilmember Kirstin Reeths expressed concerns on the over $143,000 that has been spent to date on attorney fees paid regarding the development agreement.



Kelly Catarozoli from the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society shared an update during public comments stating the lakebed lease is ready for the city’s submission to the DNR to allow for the granary’s permanent placement on the west side waterfront.  The Sturgeon Bay City Council did not do any further business after the closed session ended late Tuesday evening.
