Sister Bay continues seeking consistency in business development

The Village of Sister Bay is moving forward carefully in defining acceptable short-term housing developments for its business districts.  The Plan Commission met Tuesday in the latest work session to rework the definitions of hotels, motels, and condominiums that could be allowed in the B1, B2, and B3 districts.  Commission Chair Denise Bhirdo says specific definitions of short-term housing are needed to prevent a rash of developments on small parcels of land.


Commission member Nate Bell supports a proposal to require any short-term housing project to have a minimum of ten units, and an on-site manager full time.


Village Administrator Beau Bernhoft says redefining zoning for short-term housing is time-consuming.  He also says that's necessary to allow for consistency in future developments.

The redefinition process for short-term house zoning will continue at future Planning Commission work sessions.
