Granary Could Move Back to West Side Soon

The effort to move the old grain elevator back to its previous location on the west side waterfront in Sturgeon Bay is progressing, but the movement has been slow in recent weeks. Supporters of the granary move want to move to a staging area until such time as the more than 100-year old building is ready for its final placement. The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society has been working with state and federal agencies to obtain the necessary permits, including a city street closure permit, so that the building can take the slow trip across the Maple/Oregon Street Bridge to the west side. A change in the original development agreement as to where the granary can be temporarily placed has yet to be agreed on. And, the city finance, purchasing and building committee tabled action on the matter at its meeting this week. The Sturgeon Bay Common Council is expected to consider the street closure application at its meeting Tuesday evening. If all of the questions related to the move are answered, the old building could be traveling across the bridge on June 24th.
