The city of Sturgeon Bay hopes to cross off a couple items on their to-do list regarding the West waterfront in the coming weeks. Members representing the city of Sturgeon Bay and the Friends of the Sturgeon Bay Public Waterfront came out of their negotiations last month with a proposed new ordinary high water mark to the land at 92 E. Maple Street and a list of other items to keep in mind as new potential ideas for the site are drawn. City administrator Josh VanLieshout says there is a lot to accomplish before the new deal gets signed off by a judge.
VanLieshout says a date for the Waterfront Redevelopment Authority meeting still needs to be set while the next Sturgeon Bay Common Council meeting July 18. The Department of Natural Resources will host their forum discussing the ordinary high water mark for the site on August 3.
