Meetings to Watch

Sturgeon Bay Common Council, Tuesday, Feb. 15, 6 pm

City Hall, 421 Michigan St., Sturgeon Bay

The agenda hadn’t been posted by the Peninsula Pulse deadline, but one of the items the council was scheduled to consider was whether to transfer management of the Sturgeon Bay Farmers Market to Destination Sturgeon Bay. 

Door County Finance Committee, Wednesday, Feb. 16, 9 am

Door County Government Center, 421 Nebraska St., Sturgeon Bay

The committee will review the list of projects under consideration for the $5.3 million that’s available through the federal American Rescue Plan Act funding. Any recommendations would need to be approved by the full Door County Board of Supervisors. 

The board decided last month to use some of the funds for a broadband coordinator position for three years. Other projects up for consideration include a sober-living facility in Sturgeon Bay, a child care coordinator for Door County United Way, a rural addressing update, an affordable-housing initiative, an affordable-housing apartment complex, groundwater testing, invasive-species control and an Emergency Services training program.

Sturgeon Bay Plan Commission, Wednesday, Feb. 16, 6 pm

City Hall, 421 Michigan St., Sturgeon Bay

The agenda hadn’t been posted by the Peninsula Pulse deadline, but Mayor David Ward said during the Feb. 1 Common Council meeting that it would include two housing projects: one at the former Sunset School property, the other a 68-unit project next to Tall Pines Apartments, which is located at 1032-1044 Egg Harbor Road, Sturgeon Bay. 

Sevastopol Plan Commission, Tuesday, Feb. 15, 5:30 pm

Sevastopol Town Hall, 4528 Hwy 57, Institute

The Plan Commission will be updated on a conversation that took place between town board officials and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation on Friday, Feb. 4 (see coverage of that meeting in this issue of the Pulse). The conversation covered access options off Highway 42/57 on the town’s south end between Culver’s and C&W Auto. 

There will also be a discussion about architectural design and standards in light of the future development expected along that stretch of highway. There are strong feelings on both sides of that issue, with some thinking it’s government overreach and others believing that local control is the only way to end up with a community that looks and functions as preferred by residents.

“I think there’s certainly good reason to at least discuss it,” said Dan Woelfel, Sevastopol Town Board chair.
