Sturgeon Bay reassigns waterfront agreements from WRA to City

The Sturgeon Bay Common Council moved quickly on five agenda items on Tuesday, including three approved recommendations that will pave the way for the city to dissolve the Waterfront Redevelopment Authority. 


The council unanimously voted to reassign the interests of the WRA in the Stone Harbor Resort, Bridgeport Resort, and Harbor Club Marina Development agreements and to quitclaim any related property interests to the City of Sturgeon Bay. Another WRA agreement will be addressed at a later council meeting, according to Community Development Director Marty Olejniczak. 


The council also approved a first reading of the rezoning of five and one-half acres of land along South Hudson Avenue to R-3 zoning that gives flexibility for the development of single-family housing in the future. The city is still looking for a developer for the property.


For the record, a resolution was passed expressing gratitude to Curt Witynski and Gail Sumi, leaders of the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, for their years of service.


Mayor David Ward closed the meeting, reporting that the city has been working on over 20 projects this year, including the recent new store opening of Door County Ace Hardware on Egg Harbor Road. The Sturgeon Bay Common Council meeting adjourned after just 35 minutes.
