Sturgeon Bay City Council members gave the go-ahead at Tuesday night’s regular council meeting to create an ad hoc committee to adopt strategies for development and reuse of the west side waterfront. Sponsors say the committee would be a chance to learn from past mistakes on waterfront redevelopment. The proposed ad hoc committee would include 20-percent non-voting members who live outside Sturgeon Bay. Council member Laurel Hauser explains the qualification of potential committee members.
The city council voted to approve the ad hoc committee plan on a vote of 6-1. The council will now consider prospective ad hoc committee members.
