Jim Olson Motors Planning New Ford Dealership

While final action on a proposal from Jim Olson Motors to build a new facility in Sturgeon Bay has yet to be taken, it appears that the project is moving forward. The building, at just about 22,000 square feet, would become the site of the Ford dealership and face Duluth Avenue. Earlier this week, the city’s aesthetic design and site plan review board essentially signed off on the project, but set conditions for approval, asking the car dealer to return with additional information related to elements such as lighting and landscaping. The zoning board of appeals considered the Jim Olson petition for a variance related to the amount of impervious surface for the new building, taking into account the Chrysler dealership building. Pete Hurth of Baudhuin, Incorporated is reportedly working on plans that could address the questions raised. If the two committees sign off on the plans presented, the car dealership can take the next step in the construction of the building.
