Proposed housing complexes take steps forward

You may see greener pastures in the Sturgeon Bay rental housing market in the near future. In a meeting that spanned over two hours, the City of Sturgeon Bay Plan Commission largely discussed a Planned Unit Development petition for Northpointe Development Co. for a 53-unit, multiple-family dwelling on the north side of East Maple Street. Also discussed at the meeting was a 10-unit multi family complex on Erie Street. 


Along with plenty of public comment there were also questions from the commission followed by a presentation from Jonathan Brinkley of Northpointe Development detailing the concept of the proposed 53-unit complex. City of Sturgeon Bay Alderperson Kirstin Reeths asked about the possibility of income based housing at the complex. Andy Dumke of Northpointe replied that they would be market-based prices. He did add however that the goal is to create multiple affordable housing projects in Sturgeon Bay. There were also several pleas from different people for developers of the two proposed units to not allow for short-term rentals in them. 


A motion was made at the meeting for the Plan Commission to address the 53-unit dwelling there rather than to table it. That motion was approved, then the commission unanimously approved a motion that made a recommendation of passing the Planned Unit Development. Also passed was a motion adding a stipulation that prohibits short term rental agreements at the 53-unit property provided the city attorney has determined whether or not the city is allowed to do that. The structure is also said to come with 44 parking stalls. The PUD will now go to the city of Sturgeon Bay Common Council for approval.


A conditional use permit by Maritime Heights, LLC was approved for a 10-unit multi-family dwelling on the 700 block of Erie Street, green-lighting the construction of that complex. Developers and several in attendance considered this unit to fall in the “workforce” housing category. A list of schools and businesses that gave a resolution in favor of constructing the new dwellings were also read at the meeting.
