Bay Shipbuilding Company Seeks Variance On Roof Height

Sturgeon Bay, WI, United States /

By Tim Kowols

Bay Shipbuilding Company is looking to raise the roof on one of its recently acquired buildings from the former Palmer Johnson facilities. The shipbuilder is seeking a variance in current code to raise the northeast portion of the roof at the production facility from 44 feet to 71.5 feet. Bay Shipbuilding has to go through the variance process because current heavy industrial zoning code does not allow roof heights to go above 45 feet. Sturgeon Bay city planner and zoning administrator Ryan Kernosky says the current status of the facility does not meet the needs of Bay Shipbuilding Company.



The proposed variance will be presented to the zoning board of appeals on October 25 at noon inside the council chambers.
