Next to State Highway 57/42 between Michigan and Utah Streets are four small parcels of land with several restrictions, such as easements related to the transmission lines that run overhead. Crossroads at Big Creek owns the southern tract and is trying to obtain the rest. At Tuesday's Sturgeon Bay Finance Committee meeting, the organization's proposal to buy the city's parcel was approved and recommended to go before the Common Council at a future meeting. Chair Helen Bacon says that solidifying all of the land under Crossroads ownership is beneficial to everyone.
Typically, when the city does not have a defined use for land it owns, Sturgeon Bay will part with it for a menial price. Bacon says Crossroads may get the parcel for as little as a dollar. The purchase will also allow Crossroads to connect to the Ahnapee State Trail.
