The Sturgeon Bay Common Council approved several considerations and recommendations without going into closed session for two development agreements on Tuesday evening.
After public comments, an update of the Tewels Brandeis Granary project was provided by Project Manager Nicole Matson who shared that Phase I of the project will start once the funding from the USDA Rural Development is procured from a $3.3 million federal grant. She added that a September groundbreaking is still on schedule and contractors recently repaired the roof that was damaged last fall.
A recommendation to approve a development agreement with Duquaine Development on Sturgeon Bay’s west side was approved. It permits Phase II for two buildings of 30 units along Sawyer Drive, including financial assistance of $330,00 and changes to the annexation agreement.
An amendment to the development agreement with WWP, LLC. Was approved unanimously.
An American Transmission Company settlement from the mislocated burial of underground cable was approved, allowing plans for the Sturgeon Bay Plaza (WWP, LLC) project to move forward, including a bar and deli with outdoor seating. The amended development agreement will include $685,000 for the project as part of a Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) loan.
The council also approved amending the municipal code on natural landscape within the city and limiting grass length to 10 inches or less.
