City readies financing plan for subdivision PDF Print E-mail

Port officials poised to create TIF district that would help fund utility extensions for Cedar Vineyard development

    Port Washington officials are moving ahead with plans to create a tax-incremental financing district to help pay for the cost of extending utilities to the proposed Cedar Vineyard subdivision.

    The Plan Commission on Feb. 19 authorized moving forward with the creation of the TIF, just a day after the Common Council hired Trilogy Consulting to prepare a project plan for the district on the city’s southeast side.

    City officials have been enthusiastic about the Cedar Vineyard proposal, which would create 73 home sites, a 100-acre nature conservancy, a vineyard and winery on the former VK Development property.

    City Administrator Mark Grams said seven people have already put money down on lots in the development, a significant move since marketing for the subdivision hasn’t started yet, he said.

    “That’s 10% of the lots,” Grams noted. “Wait until the marketing actually starts.”

    Aldermen expressed optimism about the proposed development.

    “I’m confident we’re moving in the right direction,” Ald. Dan Becker said. “With each and every meeting we have, I’m more confident it will come to fruition. The hiccups that have come up have only gotten people to look at this more creatively.”

    A preliminary analysis of the proposed TIF district shows it would be feasible, Grams added.

    In a TIF district, the increased taxes that result from new development are used to pay for infrastructure costs, such as the extension of sewer and water to the Cedar Vineyard development.

    “The biggest cost is to run a new interceptor sewer to the development,” Randy Tetzlaff, the city’s director of planning and development, said. Water main must also be extended to the property, he said, and a lift station will also be needed on the far south end of the development.

    The city is also looking at the possibility of adding a bike path along Highway C that would link the development with the rest of the community, he said.

    Officials have said the Cedar Vineyard development is expected to be valued at more than $50 million when completed, while the cost of extending utilities to the site is expected to be $5.6 million, which would make the TIF viable.

    Grams noted that developer Tom Swarthout, president of The Highview Group, expects the value of the homes and lots in the subdivision to range from $650,000 to $880,000.

    In his preliminary calculations, Grams said, he looked at the worst-case scenario.

    “It looks like we would be able to get the debt paid off within 20 years,” he said. “Even if something goes wrong, you have 27 years to pay off the TIF debt.”

    Those numbers don’t include the value of the vineyard and winery, Grams said, only the residential component of the development.

    “It appears the numbers will work,” he said. “Now we’ll go back and refine everything.”

    Currently, the site only brings in about $3,300 in property taxes annually, he noted.

    The city is looking at what the TIF boundaries would be, Grams added, noting officials may incorporate some land in the industrial park as well.

    “There is some potential for development and redevelopment there, too,” he said.

    That could reduce the time needed to pay off any TIF debt, Mayor Tom Mlada said.

    Grams said the extended TIF would likely incorporate some vacant land on the KMC property as well as land owned by Construction Forms.

    “We’re looking at what the options might be, how it would connect to the rest of the (TIF) district,” Grams said. Daily-Press

     The city’s timeline for creation of the TIF district calls for the final project plan to be completed by April 2, with a public hearing on the plan on April 16.

    The Common Council is expected to approve a resolution creating the district in May, with the Joint Review Board — a panel made up of representatives of the city, county, school district and MATC, as well as a citizen —approving it within 30 days after that action.

    “Right around June 1 it could be ready to go,” Tetzlaff said. “That’s where we want it to be.”


 
Shipwreck sanctuary plan clears hurdle PDF Print E-mail

NOAA adds state project that includes Port to list of nominees for designation

The federal government has added a proposal to create a national shipwreck sanctuary that would stretch from Two Rivers to Port Washington to the list of areas under consideration for that designation, Port Mayor Tom Mlada announced Monday.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has determined “that this outstanding application exceeds the national significance criteria and management considerations,” according to a letter from Daniel Basta, director of NOAA’s Office of Marine Sanctuaries.

“We look forward to working with you, your colleagues and community organizations ... as we consider this area for possible designation as a national marine sanctuary.”

Once a nominated area is placed in the inventory, NOAA can consider it for designation as a sanctuary — a process that can take a year or two — but that doesn’t guarantee that process will take place.

But being placed on the inventory is a milestone for Port Washington and the other communities involved, Mayor Tom Mlada said.

“This represents a very exciting milestone in our collective effort to bring a national marine sanctuary to the central shores of Wisconsin,” Mlada said.

 Key to the effort is the fact the four communities partnered in the application, Sheboygan Mayor Mike Vandersteen said.

 “While we are not there just yet, this is a great indication we are on the right path,” he said.

 The proposed sanctuary is a joint project between Port Washington, Sheboygan, Manitowoc and Two Rivers, as well as the State Historical Society.

The 153-page nomination package submitted by the communities last month calls for a sanctuary that would encompass an 875-square-mile area of Lake Michigan stretching from Port to Two Rivers in an attempt to protect the many shipwrecks in the area.

 That area contains 33 known shipwrecks, including 14 intact wrecks, and holds the best examples of many vessels that sailed the waters off Wisconsin, officials have said, noting 10 of the shipwrecks are between Port and Belgium.

Proposed by the Wisconsin Historical Society, the sanctuary would complement the state’s Maritime Trail, officials said.

NOAA is the trustee for 14 marine protected areas encompassing more than 150,000 square miles of ocean and Great Lakes waters, including 13 national marine sanctuaries.

Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary and Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center in Alpena, Mich., is the only Great Lakes sanctuary.

NOAA officials are expected to visit Port Washington next month for a public informational meeting on the proposed sanctuary, Mlada said.

 
Stroebel cruises to win in state Senate race PDF Print E-mail

Former state representative easily defeats Schlenvogt, Koehler in Republican primary

Ozaukee County voters, like those across the 20th District, overwhelmingly chose Duey Stroebel as their next state senator Tuesday.

Stroebel, a former state representative, received 3,397 votes in Ozaukee County, or 65% of the ballots cast.


County Board Chairman Lee Schlenvogt received 1,609 votes, or 31%, and challenger Tiffany Koehler received 232 votes, or 4.4%.


Similar percentages were reported in other counties throughout the 20th District.  Stroebel won far more than half the votes in Washington, Sheboygan and Fond du Lac counties — results from Calumet County were not available — while Schlenvogt came in second and Koehler was a distant third.


Across the district, Stroebel is reported to have received 68% of the votes compared to Schlenvogt’s 24% and Koehler’s 8%.


Although Tuesday’s election was a primary, there is no Democratic challenger to face Stroebel in the April 7 general election.


In the election, the candidates all stressed their conservative philosophy and experience — something Stroebel said was key to his win.


“I think people have seen what I’ve done in the capitol. I’ve been a leader. I am a strong conservative,” he said. “I laid out a very specific plan in terms of what I stand for. I think that’s what the voters deserve.


“I’m just looking forward to getting to work.”


On the top of his agenda when he returns to Madison in April are the state budget and right-to-work legislation, Stroebel said.


Schlenvogt, who acknowledged he is disappointed by the result, said name recognition helped Stroebel win the election.

“He had recognition from the last election, and I’m sure that helped,” Schlenvogt said.         “He was in Madison before, and I think that helped him, too.”


Schlenvogt said he has no regrets about running, and said he would consider a future run for state office.


“I wouldn’t count it out,” he said. “I met an incredible number of really excellent people, made new friends. I’m quite humbled by the support I received from people.”


The county’s 17.7% turnout, however, was frustrating, Schlenvogt said.


 “I’m disappointed more people didn’t come out and vote,” he said.

 
Ladies Night Out returns to Port Feb. 17 PDF Print E-mail

The eighth annual Kiss of Indulgence: Ladies Night Out is expected to draw as many as 1,000 women to downtown Port Washington on Tuesday, Feb. 17.

    More than 55 local businesses will participate in the event, sponsored by Port Main Street Inc.


    Many participating businesses offer free items and samples of their wares to the women in the hope they will return to shop.

    “The registers may not ring that night, but hopefully they will ring in the coming weeks,” Main Street Executive Director Lauren Richmond said.


    The event will run from 4 to 8 p.m., when a fashion show will be held at Heron Bay banquet hall on the lower level of Blue Heron Artisans Gallery.


    More than 500 women have already registered for the event, which has drawn between 700 and 1,000 people in the past.


    For the $10 registration fee, women will receive Kiss of Indulgence-themed scarves, bags and a bonus gift. The quality of these items has increased from years past, Richmond said.


    “We really tried to put the focus on women enjoying the night with their girlfriends this year” instead of focusing on the free items offered by merchants, she said. “Every year we try to tweak it a little to make it more entertaining for the women.”


    Women can register for the event in person at the Holiday Inn Harborview or at Blue Heron through this weekend, or at the gallery on the night of the event.


    Women who are preregistered can pick up their gift bags at the gallery beginning at 4 p.m. Feb. 17.

 

 
‘Power of Purse’ raffle to boost United Way fund drive PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 11 February 2015 22:00

    United Way of Northern Ozaukee is trying a new tact in its quest to make its fundraising goal this year — holding a designer purse and specialty bag raffle during the Kiss of Indulgence next week.

    “I realized I’m not going to get to our goal unless I make a last effort and get some visibility for the campaign,” United Way Executive Director Barbara Bates-Nelson said.

    The raffle will coincide with the eighth annual Kiss of Indulgence in downtown Port Washington, taking advantage of the large number of women coming to the city.

    “With the Kiss of Indulgence, it just seemed like the right opportunity,” Bates-Nelson said.

    Nineteen purses, each filled with gift certificates and other items, will be raffled in the first “Power of the Purse” drawing.

    The purses, which range in value from $30 to $175, include designer bags by Coach, Vera Bradley and Tori Burch, Bates-Nelson said.

    The gifts inside range in value from $125 to $300 and include everything from a pearl bracelet to gift cards for area stores and restaurants to a stay at the Hilton Garden Inn in Milwaukee, she added.

    “Everyone I asked to participate was so generous,” Bates-Nelson said. “My goal was to get 12 purses and I ended up with 19.”

    The bags are on display at Port Washington State Bank, where United Way volunteers will sell tickets during the Kiss of Indulgence. Advance tickets can be purchased online at www.unitedwayno.org.

 Tickets are $5 each, three for $10 or seven for $25, and women can use them for the purse of their choice.

    The fundraiser is based on one Bates-Nelson said she heard about at a United Way convention.

    The event is one of the last pushes to raise money before United Way closes its books on its annual campaign on March 31.

    The campaign goal is $285,000 — up from last year’s goal because of an increase in needs in the county. Bates-Nelson noted that the 15 agencies supported by United Way have requested $55,000 more in funding this year, and several of them have also said they are experiencing serious cuts in financing from other sources.

    Last year, United Way raised $263,000, falling just short of its goal of $275,000, Bates-Nelson noted.UnitedWay
    “We were so close last year,” she said.

    Right now, she said, the campaign is running slightly ahead of last year, noting there are still a couple workplace campaigns that haven’t reported in yet.

    “I’m hoping this can bring us home,” she said.

 
Beach entrance upgrade work to start in April PDF Print E-mail

Council hires firm for $492,000 improvement project expected to be completed by end of June

    Work on an improved east entrance to Port Washington’s north beach should be completed by the end of June, now that the Common Council approved contracts for the project.

    The $492,000 project, which will be done by TP Concrete, includes replacing and widening the asphalt walkway with concrete, replacing the chain link fence and moving it and the light poles closer to the plant, replacing the current lights with LED bulbs and adding a drop-off area at the south end of the path.

    “It’s going to pay big dividends in bringing people to the beach,” Mayor Tom Mlada said when the contracts were approved Jan. 20.

    Ald. Dan Becker said, “It looks great.”

    The project can begin as soon as the frost has left the ground, Public Works Director Rob Vanden Noven said when he presented the project to the Board of Public Works last week.

    “Certainly it will begin by mid-April,” he said, adding the work must be substantially done by May 25 and finished by June 30.

    While the east walkway will be beautified and made handicapped accessible — turning it into the main beach entrance— the path around the west side of the wastewater plant will become the secondary beach access.

    The existing chain link-and-barbed wire fence at the entrance will be moved and an ornamental gate added there.

    Works board members rejected several alternative bids for the project, including a $60,500 option to replace the light poles and fixtures and a $258,000 proposal to add an entryway feature that would mimic the look of the arched entrance to Rotary Park.

    “Holy moley, those are not cheap,” Ald. Mike Ehrlich, a member of the board, said of the cost to replace the light poles.

    Board members lamented the fact the $500,000 budget would not be enough to fund the entryway fixture, but agreed it could be added next year.

    “If we don’t do it now, we won’t do it later,” said Ald. Kevin Rudser, echoing the fears of his fellow board members.

    But Wastewater Supt. Dan Buehler, whose utility is paying for the project, assured the board, “It can be done in phases.”

    Vanden Noven suggested the board could modify the gateway feature, saying he had a quote for a slightly different structure from a contractor for $30,000.

    To reduce the cost of the project, board members considered changing the new fence, which has a wave design that undulates from 8 to 10 feet in height, to a standard 8-foot-tall one.

    The wave fence was selected by the Common Council as its preferred option when the project was approved last year, works board members noted, adding it looks much better than the straight one.

    “It just feels more substantial,” Ehrlich said.

    “The wave fence is nice, but is it $63,000 nice?” asked Rudser, referring to the cost difference between the two styles.

    Vanden Noven said he had examined the straight fencing and, while it looks fine in a sample, “it didn’t have the appearance I hoped it would.”

    One item that city officials have long discussed is painting a mural on the sludge storage tanks at the south end of the plant.

    That could cost $80,000 per tank, said Vanden Noven, who received a quote for the murals from Walldog Public Art of Centerville, Iowa, which has painted murals throughout downtown Plymouth in recent years.

    “It’s a little steep,” he told the board.

    In addition, he said, the tanks would need a significant amount of preparation work, he said.

    “Maybe that’s the time to do it, when they need painting,” Vanden Noven said.

    City Administrator Mark Grams also noted that once the new fence is installed, the bottom half of the tanks will be somewhat hidden from view.Daily-Press

    That’s especially true since the city plans to plant vines along the fence, Vanden Noven said.

    “I can’t see doing this now,” Ehrlich said. “Even if it wasn’t this expensive, I’d say let’s see what the fencing does first. That’s going to do so much.”

    Rudser suggested that instead of a painting, the city look at a vinyl wrapping similar to those used on semi-trucks and racing cars, for the tanks.

    “I don’t know if it’s possible, but it’s worth looking at,” he said. “If it’s possible, it might look cool.”
