Sturgeon Bay approves Fleet Farm development agreement

You are one step closer to seeing a Fleet Farm in Sturgeon Bay.  The Sturgeon Bay Common Council moved forward Tuesday evening with Fleet Farm's plans to build a store on the west side. Council President Dan Williams, who was filling in for Mayor David Ward at the meeting, says the approval of the Finance/Purchasing & Building Committee's recommendation is just the first step. He says establishing a Development Agreement with Fleet Farm only moves the project forward with phases of more arduous negotiations going on with the project managers for the company in the future. Despite concerns about the magnitude of the development expressed during public comments, Williams says all concerns will be accounted for during the negotiations with Fleet Farm and when the council addresses the project at least two more times.



In other business, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council approved the second reading of a rezoning of property at 835 South Duluth Avenue from General Commercial (C-1) to Mixed Residential-Commercial (C-5). A resolution for a Development Agreement for Shirley Weese Young's Muse Project at the corner of Jefferson Street and North Third Avenue was also approved. A Vibrant Spaces Grant application resolution for the renovation of the Tewels & Brandeis grain elevator project was also passed. A settlement with the property owner on the west side of Sturgeon Bay will allow the city to connect Grant Avenue with Sawyer Drive without enforcing eminent domain. The council approved the resolution to accept the agreement to purchase the land for $80,000. The Sturgeon Bay Common Council will next meet on Tuesday, February 7.
