City Council to Consider Hotel Proposal Tonight

The seven-member Sturgeon Bay City Council will be asked to approved a planned unit development for a hotel proposed for the city’s west side waterfront at its regular meeting Tuesday in the truck bay of the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department. The meeting is expected to get underway at 6PM. A vocal group of residents have raised opposition to the project for several reasons, including the contention that the number of rooms offered would impact an already saturated market. Several of the opposition have ties to the city’s lodging industry, but others don’t like the size and scope of the hotel and its location on the waterfront. The city plan commission is recommending that the PUD process move forward with a four story facility and no more than 76 rooms. The city council can accept or reject the recommendation, send the matter back to committee or come up with a plan of its own. Council approval does not necessarily mean that the project will move forward. Any of a number of factors, from financing to logistics, could slow down or stop the process.
