A rezoning of blighted property on North 14th Avenue for future storage buildings caused a lengthy discussion by the Sturgeon Bay Common Council on Tuesday evening. Before voting to approve a first reading that will rezone the property from Agricultural to General Commercial, councilmember Dennis Statz added an amendment stipulating that nothing can be stored outside the storage units to keep the property clutter-free. City Attorney James Kalny would also need to approve it before the second reading later this month. Estes Investment, LLP intends to redevelop the back half of the property at 1361 North 14th Avenue for 15 commercial storage buildings.
In other business, the council unanimously approved recreating the Municipal Code for Communication Towers to align with state statutes and the rezoning of property on the 1100 block of North 8th Avenue from Planned Unit Development Single-Family Residential.
The Sturgeon Bay Common Council also extended the initial sale period for DCEDC and Destination Sturgeon Bay for the Zak Property Sale from two weeks to January 2, 2022.
