Two Sturgeon Bay zoning decisions expected on Tuesday

A piece property slated for a Fleet Farm in the future could officially become a part of Sturgeon Bay depending on how the Sturgeon Bay Common Council votes on Tuesday. In their last meeting, the council approved the recommendations of the Finance, Purchasing, and Building Committee and the City Plan Commission for the Kerscher property to be annexed from the Town of Nasewaupee and temporarily rezoned from Agricultural to Commercial. The property, located along State Highway 42/57, needs two-thirds of approval from the council before it can be annexed and rezoned. If annexed, the city would be obligated to pay the Town of Nasewaupee a total of $1,073.65, the equivalent of five years of taxes. It would then set the next steps in the process, where plans for the store will be scrutinized to ensure the proposed Fleet Farm is a good fit for Sturgeon Bay.


The second reading for a proposed 22-unit apartment complex on North 14th Avenue will also occur. The land needs to be rezoned from Agricultural to Multi-Family Residential R-4. The only hang-up would be if the property’s owner, Estes Development, LLP, does not address three conditions being met concerning storm water run-off and the grading of the property. The rezoning action cannot occur if those issues are not fixed.  The council will also discuss an incentive package for the project using approximately $163,000 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to reimburse Estes Development for designing and installing sewer and water extensions. The city would recover that investment in approximately ten years through property taxes.

The Sturgeon Bay Common Council will meet at 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
