The city of Sturgeon Bay’s investment in Egg Harbor Road appears to be paying off dividends. During the last several years, the city has invested $1.3 million into making improvement’s to Egg Harbor Road’s infrastructure including curbs, gutters, sidewalks, bike lanes and decorative lighting. Since 2012, nine new businesses have set up shop in the area. With eight sites still available for redevelopment, Sturgeon Bay Community Development Director Marty Olejniczak hopes the city has done enough to keep the positive momentum going.
Olejniczak says the city’s finance committee has asked city staff to investigate whether it makes sense to create a tax increment district for a part of Egg Harbor Road.
