Sturgeon Bay to Regulate Tourist Rental Houses

Tourist rooming houses in Sturgeon Bay will be regulated as a result of action taken by the city council Tuesday evening. The action came at the request of the city plan commission. Resident Scott Moore asked the council to deny the request, saying what he called “party houses” would be a blight to neighborhoods. But City Attorney Randy Nesbitt noted that the rental units have been permitted in Wisconsin for 25 years and recent court action had supported the right of a home owner to rent the property…

Nesbitt said the plan commission’s recommendation was an attempt for the city to have some say in how the rental units are operated…

It was pointed out that the city rules for tourist rooming houses are more stringent than the state’s requirements.
