Council, shopping center owners discuss options that include future NOAA office

The Port Washington Common Council met Tuesday with the owners of the Port Harbor Center to discuss using the former grocery store on the north end of the lakefront shopping center as a home for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which is considering establishing a marine sanctuary that would stretch from Port north to Two Rivers.

Aldermen and officials met in executive session for about 15 minutes before calling the Port Harbor Center owners, Don and Mary Ann Voigt and Jim and Karen Vollmar, into the closed-door meeting, which lasted another hour.

“I think it was a good  initial conversation,” Mayor Tom Mlada said when the Common Council reconvened in a public session. “We have agreed we’re going to continue our conversation, negotiations.”

That next meeting with the center’s owners will take place on Jan. 19, he said, adding “We may have some action to report at that meeting.”

Don Voigt concurred, saying Wednesday morning, “It was a very positive meeting.”
