Ryan Kernosky is leaving the city of Sturgeon Bay to become the Community Development Director for the Minnesota city of Isanti. Sturgeon Bay hired Kernosky to become its city planner after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 2015. Kernosky says he enjoyed his time in Sturgeon Bay, but the position in Isanti is an opportunity for him to advance his career and live in a different part of the Midwest.
According to Kernosky, Isanti has been going under major changes in new development with over sixty homes built last year and another sixty-plus homes slated for this year. Mayor Thad Birmingham praised Kernosky during the last Common Council meeting in advance of the city planner’s last day on Friday.
