Port council clears way for sale, development of city lot despite pleas from residents, park offer from service club

    Nearly a dozen people asked the Port Washington Common Council on Tuesday not to sell a city-owned lakefront parking lot for development, and a service organization offered to instead create a park on the land to protect public access to Lake Michigan.

    “The marina and the lake is what made my husband and I pick up and move to Port Washington,” said Brenda Harvieux of 932 N. Stanford St., who moved to the city in August. “Please don’t wreck the view down there.”

    But aldermen voted unanimously to declare the land at the end of the north slip portion of the marina surplus property, the first step in a plan to sell the land for development, ideally a brew pub.

    “Let’s see if there is an idea out there that is a great fit,” said Ald. Mike Ehrlich, who emphasized, as did other aldermen, that the council’s action does not commit the city to selling the property.

    The Community Development Authority will now begin to draft a request for proposals for development of the parking lot.

    Although the city wants to sell the property for a development that would draw people to the lake year-round, many of the more than 30 people who crowded into city hall said the land is most valuable as undeveloped property that provides views and access to the lake.
