Port commission declares property surplus amid concerns officials are rushing development proposal

    The Port Washington Plan Commission last week declared a city-owned parking lot along the marina surplus property, paving the way for its development even as some officials expressed concern the city is rushing to sell public lakefront land for use as a brew pub restaurant.

    Commission members said the potential sale of the property, which is expected to be considered by the Common Council on Tuesday, Dec. 2, could create a destination at the end of the north slip portion of the marina off Washington Street that would draw visitors and residents to the lakefront year-round.

    Successful development of the land could also spur other projects identified in a recently approved downtown redevelopment plan, officials said.

    However, several commission members questioned whether the city is moving too fast in declaring the land surplus.

    “I believe it should be part of a whole marina district plan,” commission member Amanda Williams said. “We can declare this property surplus at any point.”
