Westside School Apartment complex development on hold

The plans to build a 40-unit apartment complex where the old West Side School and ballfield are located in Sturgeon Bay won't be happening this year. Marty Olenicjzak, community development director, says that Northpointe Development did not receive the affordable tax credits through the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority they had applied for last year.  The development and purchase of the property were contingent on the WHEDA and historical tax credits' approval. Olenicjzak notes that the developer Andy Dumke told the city that the tax credits were not granted due to what he called "a technicality." The Sturgeon Bay Common Council had approved the Planned Unit Development and the purchase of the West Side Field by Northpointe Development last fall. Dumke could reapply for the state grants and look to 2021 to start the project.
