Council Approves Moving Granary Back to West Side

As anticipated, a majority on the Sturgeon Bay Common Council voted Tuesday to allow the city’s more than 100-year old grain elevator to be moved from its current location, to its former home on the west side waterfront. Aldermen David Ward and Seth Wiederanders opposed the development agreement and the plan to move the controversial structure from a private parcel to city-owned property. A donor’s $1.25 million grant is expected to be invested in the restoration of the old granary. The effort to save the grain elevator has had a polarizing effect on the city. Supporters believe its renovation will be an asset to the community. Detractors call it an eyesore.
