Although the attention started Tuesday evening with the community’s immediate health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council managed some business with eyes toward the future. Mayor David Ward says an approved plan for Cherryland Properties to build a two-story building, featuring professional office space with a residence, could be the first of many exciting developments on Sturgeon Bay’s west side waterfront.
The Sturgeon Bay City Council has called a special meeting Thursday at 6 pm to declare an emergency, like many other municipalities. Ward says the action will suspend standard rules and allow the city to take immediate action if it becomes necessary. He adds that the declaration is more administrative at this time since the state and federal agencies have already set down stringent rules for the public to follow.
