Though it can be a waiting game, it won’t be long before you have a final answer on a Sturgeon Bay housing project. The proposal of a 53-unit dwelling in the city of Sturgeon Bay now lies in the hands of the common council. Earlier in the week the final Planned Unit Development proposed by Northpointe Development passed the Plan Commission and will now head to the common council for the first reading of a new city ordinance on September 7th.
If passed the second reading will be on September 22nd before being put into the city code. Mayor David Ward says the proposal has been in front of the Plan Commission a handful of times, as the city previously approved the Preliminary PUD. While a 53-unit development won’t solve the whole housing crunch, Ward believes it will be beneficial.
The complex would be placed along the north side of East Maple Street between Madison Avenue and Neenah Avenue.
