Preservation efforts are important to measure when it comes to protecting and maximizing the natural resources and environment on the Door Peninsula. Laurel Hauser, a council member from District 7 in Sturgeon Bay, says the national conversation is debating over individual rights versus the common good.
Hauser says Sturgeon Bay took an initiative over 20 years ago to develop their waterfront property with the goal to have as much public access as possible. She says the newly formed 10-member Ad Hoc Westside Waterfront Steering Committee will be meeting next Thursday for the first time at 6:30 pm in the Community Room at City Hall.
