Dan Collins, a member of the Friends of the Sturgeon Bay Public Waterfront, says the best outcome in a dispute with the City of Sturgeon Bay is a Department of Natural Resources determination “based on science.”
Then, Collins says, both sides can work on development options.
The DNR held a hearing in Sturgeon Bay last week and is expected to make a determination soon about where private development will be allowed on Sturgeon Bay’s west side waterfront and what must be preserved for public use.
Collins said his group and the city reached a compromise agreement on where development could occur but it was thwarted by the Waterfront Redevelopment Authority. According to Collins, the WRA hopes for a “legislative fix.”
