A new Sturgeon Bay roof pitch ordinance made it through its first reading Tuesday afternoon, but not without a little controversy. The new ordinance would require builders and homeowners to go through an appeals process with the city’s zoning board for home plans with a roof pitch of less than four feet per 12 feet in width. Council member Kelly Catarozoli, the lone dissent in the council’s 6-1 decision, says the ordinance could be discriminatory to a younger generation looking to build in Sturgeon Bay.
Plan Commission and Council member Rick Wiesner says the new ordinance allows the city to plan for the future.
Sturgeon Bay Community Development Director Marty Olejniczak says the new ordinance would make it easier to have roof pitches of less than four feet per 12 feet in width because builders and homeowners would not have to show hardship like they had to in the past.
