The Village of Sister Bay is further clarifying the definitions and ordinances that cover temporary housing in the community's boundaries. The Plan Commission took the latest steps Monday by redefining and simplifying what is considered residential and transient housing, as well as mixed housing and commercial use. Village Administrator Beau Bernhoft says the on-going ordinance revisions are an effort to preserve Sister Bay's character while responding to changes in the temporary housing sector.
By further refining, those housing definitions Bernhoft says the village can move forward with revising the permit process.
The Village of Sister Bay is working under a self-imposed six-month deadline to revise its housing ordinances, though Bernhoft says the village hopes to have the change made before that deadline.
