Council Rejects PUD For Tourist Rooming House

The Sturgeon Bay City Council Tuesday rejected a homeowner's bid to be able to rent out his house to tourists.

William Andersen was looking to obtain a planned unit development (PUD) designation to allow his single-family home next to Otumba Park -- in an area zoned residential -- to be operated as a lodging house (tourist rooming house).

The Council vote was 3-3 with Mayor Thad Birmingham casting a no vote to break the tie.

Birmingham said approving the PUD would essentially be "spot zoning" and said the city should instead look at adopting a new zoning classification.

The Plan Commission and City Council have from time to time considered amendments to the zoning code to allow the lodging/tourist rooming house use within residential zoning districts, but no changes have been adopted.

Aldermen Joe Stutting, Rick Wiesner and Bob Schlicht voted in favor of the PUD. Dan Wiegand, Ed Ireland and Stewart Fett voted against it.
