City of Sturgeon Bay approves amendment to granary development

The Sturgeon Bay Common Council approved the amended development agreement between the City and the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Tuesday night. The second amendment passed by a 5-2 vote with councilmembers Gary Nault and Kirsten Reeths voting no. City Attorney James Kalny informed the council that the agreement would include changing the project from a restoration of the Teweles & Brandeis granary to a renovation. The completion date would be pushed back one year to June 1, 2022. He shared the change in the footprint of the granary that required the second amendment.



In other business Tuesday night, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council approved the deactivating of the emergency sirens used to notify the public outside of tornadoes. Fire Chief Tim Dietman said that six sirens are 24 years old and need significant repairs that would cost over $20,000 for each one.


City Administrator Josh Van Lieshout reported that the old Westside School is again a potential housing project. Andy Dumpke from Northpointe Development, who initially proposed a 50-unit apartment complex that included the westside ballfield location, is now looking at a potential 15-17unit apartment within the old building. The renovation project would be eligible for the one-time state Community Development Block Grant through Door County, amounting to $1.4 million. According to Van Lieshout, half of the housing would have to be for low-to-moderate-income (LMI) renters. 


(Note: The Teweles & Brandeis granary is owned by the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society.  No city tax money is being used for the restoration or maintenance of the building)
