Mayor Ward excited about project progress

The city of Sturgeon Bay has been making up for lost time this summer by getting back to old activities and showing off what they’ve been working on lately. With tourism season in full swing, Mayor David Ward says there’s three areas that have seen work this year that he’s really excited for locals and visitors to come see. Graham Park next to the Oregon Street bridge is one. When the entire project is complete, it’ll include amphitheater seating, gardens, and free community games. It’s open but they are awaiting final steel and aluminum to put a fountain there made by local artist Rob Soukup. 


Mayor David Ward also looks forward to people using the west waterfront promenade walkway between the Michigan and Oregon Street bridges on the westside of Sturgeon Bay. The promenade is open and being used, though not a finished product. 



The area under the most construction right now is the Otumba Beach project which will increase the depth of the beach and include an ADA accessible beach mat. The improvements are on pace for a mid-July opening. Mayor Ward doesn’t want that to discourage people from visiting Otumba Park.



Mayor Ward says there’ll be a lot of ribbon cuttings in the city’s future. He says the city is in much better shape to display its assets than it was a year ago.
