Sturgeon Bay Common Council addressing zoning for home size

The City of Sturgeon Bay will be looking to lower the requirement for the square footage of a home in the city when the Common Council meets for the first time in 2023 on Tuesday night. 

The Plan Commission’s recommendation calls for the minimum dimension size for a single-family residential home (R-1 Zoning) in the city to drop from 1,500 square feet to 1,200 square feet. 

Other business to be handled at the meeting will be the first reading of the ordinance to rezone a parcel of land at 835 South Duluth Avenue from General Commercial (C-1) to Mixed Residential-Commercial (C-5).  This would allow the southern portion of the old Woldt’s Corner property to allow for a single-family dwelling by the current development of a three-tenant commercial center that is being built.  The approval for purchasing two new squad cars for the Police Department is also on the agenda.  

The final piece of business will be a recommendation by the Finance/Purchasing & Building Committee to approve listing the West Waterfront park area as a potential location for the possible NERR headquarters site.  

The Sturgeon Bay Common Council is set to meet at 6:00 pm in Council Chambers at City Hall on Tuesday.
