Sister Bay prepares to close on Wiltse property

The Village of Sister Bay took another step towards a large portion of their future Tuesday night with the final approval of its purchase of 56 acres. In a special meeting, the village board approved the purchase of what is known as the Wiltse property. Located between Scandia Road and County Highway ZZ, the 56 acres of land is adjacent to the village’s water treatment plant and sports complex. The village expects to pay approximately $425,000 for the property. Village administrator Beau Bernhoft says there have been plans for years to make improvements to the water treatment plant and sports complex, while also looking for a possible future home to a new administrative center. He says there has not been an opportunity to do that until now.

With the purchase officially approved by the board, Bernhoft expects the village will be able to close on the property within the next month. He added that community meetings will be planned so residents can have a say in other options for the 56 acres. Before the special meeting, the Sister Bay Plan Commission met to discuss a number of different items including the possible development of condominiums on the property formerly held by Fred and Fuzzy’s Waterfront Resort.
