Promenade to set tone for west waterfront

The promenade slated for Sturgeon Bay’s west waterfront will help define what the rest of the area will look like for years to come. The city recently finished its discussions with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources about a week and a half ago to set the stage for acquiring a lakebed lease from the state’s Board of Commissioners of Public Land. That would help give the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society the land its needs to continue its planning efforts for the Teweles and Brandeis grain elevator projects. City administrator Josh Van Lieshout says developers want to get a feel for what the parcel will look like before they start investing money into the area.

A developer has submitted a letter of intent to purchase west waterfront property and will be one of the subjects of Tuesday’s Finance/Purchasing and Building Committee meeting during its closed session. The meeting, which will also cover the expansion of Sturgeon Bay Cold Storage in the city’s industrial park, begins at 4 p.m. inside the council chambers.
