Residents of the City of Sturgeon Bay: Consider acceptance of the final Report of the West Waterfront Redevelopment Recommendations as proposed by the Ad hoc Westside Waterfront Planning Committee including the relocation of the Tewles & Brandeis Granary.

The Ad hoc Westside Waterfront Planning Committee was appointed by the past City Council 10 months ago with Laurel Hauser and Dave Schanock as co-chairperson of a group of 12 to work with City and community members with a goal to create a plan for the future of the Westside Waterfront. We watched with skepticism because we knew that the City was divided; any plan needed to be general enough to allow for business opportunities, yet specific enough to ensure public recreational use. We are impressed with the scope of the plan that includes public spaces and opportunities for private economic development to enable the financing of some of the recreational public spaces.

Keep in mind, neither compromise nor consensus building suggest that everyone gets what they feel is most important. To some, the granary is still a volatile subject; to others it is a national landmark. The Ad Hoc Committee has created a vision for the west side; we deem that it is time to compromise. My husband and I appreciate and thank the volunteers of the Ad hoc committee for their diligence to produce a thorough report and request your petition signature for acceptance of the Report by the City of Sturgeon Bay Mayor, Common Council and Planning Committee.
