Sturgeon Bay’s Shoreline Restoration Project for Bradley Lake will have to wait another year. After a lengthy discussion Tuesday night, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council agreed with the recommendation from City Engineer Chad Shefchik and Municipal Director Mike Barker recommendation to reject the scaled-down project. The body of water at Sunset Park, which is locally known as Little Lake, has been a major concern for several years. The council then voted to form a committee on Bradley Lake to work on future project plans rather than investing in more recommendations from consultants.
The Common Council also moved on recommendations from the Finance/Purchasing & Building Committee regarding two separate development agreements. One action approved the agreement with Duquaine Development for a 68-unit apartment complex located on Sturgeon Bay’s west side north of Target. The other development agreement unanimously approved was with Premier SB Duluth Avenue, LLC for a 96-unit housing project that will be located east of Target.
In his Mayor’s report, David Ward noted that the recent approval of housing developments by the City of Sturgeon Bay will mean nearly 300 additional units that should start in July.
