Hotel Meeting Scheduled for High School

Developer Bob Papke will appear before the Sturgeon Bay Plan Commission in the Sturgeon Bay High School auditorium at 7:45 pm on Wednesday, Dec. 17, with a revised plan for the proposed Lindgren Hotel as part of the city’s West Waterfront Redevelopment Project.

On Dec. 10, Papke said he and architect Henry Isaksen are still working on hotel revisions.

“We haven’t got everything put together yet,” Papke said.

The hotel meeting will be held after the Plan Commission holds a public hearing at 7 pm in the council chambers at City Hall on a Georgia Street lot rezoning project.

The meeting on the hotel is being held at the school auditorium because of the large crowd that came out for a Dec. 3 meeting at council chambers. That meeting was canceled at the last minute after city officials were notified by Fire Chief Tim Herlache that city council chambers are limited to 90 people. When more than 90 people showed up for the meeting, the city decided to reschedule. An overflow crowd had previously showed up for a public hearing on the proposed development on Nov. 19.

Even though the meeting is not another public hearing, the city wants to make sure everyone who wants to attend can be accommodated.
