Sturgeon Bay Plan Commission to Hold Special Meeting on Hotel Proposal

A hotel proposed for the former Door County Cooperative on Sturgeon Bay’s west side waterfront will be the subject of a special meeting of the city plan commission on Wednesday evening at city hall. The 90-room facility, proposed by Door County developer Bob Papke, is one of several developments planned for the parcel now owned by the city. During the last plan commission meeting, about three dozen people objected to the concept during a public hearing on the proposed hotel. Another dozen speakers spoke in favor. City staff are recommending that the planned unit development process, with conditions, continue. Whatever the plan commission decides, the city council has the final say on whether or not the project should move forward. During the public hearing on November 10th, some in the audience demanded that a decision on the idea be turned over to the voters in the form of a referendum. Again, a decision on whether or not to have a referendum vote is up to the city council. The Sturgeon Bay city plan commission meets in special session Wednesday evening at 7PM in the council chambers at city hall.
