A second reading of the Tourist House Room Regulations passed at Tuesday’s Sturgeon Bay Common Council meeting and will become municipal code upon publication. The second reading included transferring the tourist rooming house section out of the zoning chapter and into the licensing and permitting chapter.
In addition, the ordinance will contain four requirements. Those include having insurance for use, a need to provide two parking spaces per unit, reiterating the need to put out garbage cans at a certain time as opposed to putting them out early, and specifying an occupancy load for a tourist rooming house based on the Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection uses to regulate the use. The last regulation stated is regulating recreational vehicles, tents, and campers in conjunction with renting out a facility.
Planning and Zoning administrator Christopher Sullivan-Robinson gave the reading. The reading was passed unanimously.
