The Sturgeon Bay Plan Commission held a public hearing at their meeting Wednesday night to discuss three proposals within the city, two of which would bring more much needed housing options to the area. The proposal for a 53-unit multiple family dwelling just north of East Maple Street on the west side was discussed at length, which Mayor Dave Ward says was mostly positive response……
As he said, the proposal for the 10-unit plan near Sunset School was also approved. Both of these plans will now be considered in next week’s Common Council meeting on Tuesday. Mayor Ward says they don’t want to waste time with these projects, since more housing options in the area are very needed….
With the 53-unit project on the west waterfront, much concern was raised about the possibility of short-term rentals in these units. The Commission then passed a stipulation prohibiting short-term rentals on this property, but the city attorney must still determine if such a stipulation is allowed….
The next step for these housing projects will be approval by the Common Council at their meeting this coming Tuesday at 6:00 pm.
