Sister Bay’s downtown will have a different look when visitors return next spring. Two restaurants will add rooftop dining options to their buildings in 2017, complementing several other establishments that introduced patios this year. With shovels also slated to break ground on several projects at the Braun property in November, even village administrator Zeke Jackson cannot believe the progress Sister Bay’s down has made in such a short time.
Jackson credits the vision of Bob Kufrin for laying the groundwork for a downtown redevelopment plan that has taken only four years to, in his words, “button down.” The downtown projects only represent a portion of the $27 million in planned starts in Sister Bay.
