Port Washington


Long-awaited subdivision finally begins to take shape PDF Print E-mail

Despite delays, developer hopes to begin construction on Cedar Vineyard this fall

People driving along Highway C on Port Washington’s south side have been expecting to see shovels in the dirt as the proposed Cedar Vineyard subdivision takes shape. 

Plans for the subdivision are proceeding, albeit slower than originally expected, developer Tom Swarthout said this week.

Swarthout, president of the Highview Group, said he plans to purchase the 227-acre property off Highway C in August and begin work on the subdivision this fall.

“Things have not gone as quickly as we had hoped,” he said. “Land is a very unique transaction in today’s world. It’s just taking a little longer than we had projected, but we’re close to completing the transaction.

“Everything is falling into place.”

Surveys and engineering for the property are completed, he said, and he hopes to announce a groundbreaking soon.

Negotiations with the City of Port Washington on a developer’s agreement are progressing, he said, and the document could go before the Common Council for approval in the next month or two.

Swarthout said he plans to begin work on grading and utilities on the property this fall, as well as preparation work for streets within the complex.

In spring, the roads can be built and the property prepared for home construction, he said.

Spring is also when the City of Port will extend utilities and make road improvements to the property, City Administrator Mark Grams said.

“He can do his work on the property, and when we extend the utilities next year they can be connected,” he said. 

The land, which years ago was slated for an intensive subdivision by VK Development, is primarily on the east side of Highway C between the Kingdom Hall and Stonecroft Drive. 

A portion of the property is on the west side of Highway C, south of Stonecroft Drive.

Swarthout said he has reservations for 14 of the 82 lots in the subdivision, virtually all through word of mouth.

“I haven’t advertised,” he said. “Once we start to market the property, I think we’ll be in terrific shape.”

Swarthout said the economy is coming back in southeastern Wisconsin, and his development will benefit from that.

“Port Washington is a gem, and you’re going to see more and more people coming here,” he predicted.

Swarthout, who plans to build a home in the subdivision, said everyone else who has reserved a lot in the subdivision is from the area or has roots in the area. 

So far buyers have come from Mequon, Whitefish Bay, Cedarburg and Sheboygan, he said. The farthest away is a Maryland man who grew up in Port Washington.

“It’s a real mix of people,” he said. “We have one couple with an 18-month-old baby, retirees and everything in between. It’s the mix we had hoped for.”

He said he expects that when he markets the site, some buyers will build second homes in the subdivision as well.

Homes aren’t the only attraction for the subdivision.

Within minutes of buying the property, Swarthout said, the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust will purchase 102 acres from him for a nature preserve.

That property will preserve the environmentally sensitive Cedar Gorge and Port Washington Clay Bluffs as well as land along the bluff, ensuring public access to the lakefront.

As its name indicates, the subdivision will also be used for a vineyard that will run along Highway C and be developed over five years, as well as a winery developed by Steve and Maria Johnson, who own Parallel 44 Vineyard and Winery in Kewaunee and Door 44 Winery in Sturgeon Bay.

Swarthout said orders have already been placed for grapevines that will be planted in the vineyard next spring.

“We have identified the varietals,” Swarthout said, noting two-year-old vines will be delivered from New York State next year.

While he had planned to use a dilapidated barn owned by We Energies for the winery, Swarthout said that building had high levels of lead paint, so it wasn’t used.

Instead, he is working with Ozaukee County to take down a barn it owns in the Town of Saukville this fall and use that structure — supplemented with pieces of another barn — to create the winery.

“It’s in design right now,” he said. “It’s going to be a very cool building. You’ll have oak beams, 125 years old — you can’t replicate that. There’s a certain patina to it.

“It will create a story to the building.”

Ansay, Stephen Perry Smith continue to tout potential benefits of proposals in bid to buy city-owned parcel

With the Port Washington Common Council slated to hold a public discussion next month on the potential sale of a city-owned car-trailer parking lot next to the marina, the two developers who have proposed buying the property for residential uses made another pitch to aldermen last week.

Jim Voelz of Redmond Co. touted the economic benefits of a plan by Ansay Development to create a 44-unit apartment building that would encompass both the city site and the adjoining Victor’s restaurant property.

He estimated that the tenants of the building would spend $893,000 annually on retail goods, compared to $286,000 for a plan for 11 townhouses submitted by Stephen Perry Smith Architects.

“It is absolutely huge,” Voelz said. “That’s one of the main benefits we feel our project brings to the community.”

He also estimated that the annual budget for the tenants of the apartment building would be $2.8 million, compared to $903,000 for the townhouse plan.

“This is an opportunity,” Voelz said. 

Ald. Doug Biggs questioned where the apartment tenants would spend their money, be it downtown Port or at shopping venues elsewhere in the county or beyond.

“How much of that money will stay in Port Washington vs. Grafton, for example?” he asked.

Voelz said the demographic information did not delineate that information.

“Certainly, a portion will be spent in downtown Port Washington,” he said. “The point is the massive difference in buying potential.”

Architect Stephen Smith told aldermen that a main difference between the two proposals is that he is not asking for any city funding while Ansay is seeking $1.5 million in development incentives from the city’s tax incremental financing district.

Because of that, his project will begin paying off for the city immediately, Smith said, estimating the townhouses will pay $79,000 in taxes annually.

The Ansay project, he said, won’t have an immediate impact because its tax payments will offset the incentives.

Smith also noted that several city committees expressed concern about the density of the Ansay proposal, the size and scale of the structure and its impact on the neighborhood.

“I think the (Ansay) building will dwarf the neighboring buildings,” he said. “The question is, is that the right location for the project. The question is how do you do density and do density right?”

Voelz and Tim Wolosz of Engberg Anderson Architects addressed the aesthetic concerns expressed by the city committees.

“We think it relates very well,” Voelz said.

The mass of the building is broken up by vertical elements and varying materials, as well as green screens that will be artistic and provide interest year-round, Wolosz said.

Voelz also noted that apartments are needed in the area, and the building’s location in downtown, close to businesses and restaurants, and on the lakefront will help attract tenants.

Smith, too, said his proposal has attracted interest from prospective buyers. 

The Common Council is expected to have a public discussion on the proposals and perhaps make a decision on which developer to sell the land to next month, City Administrator Mark Grams said.

Originally slated for the Tuesday, Aug. 2, meeting, Grams said this week that the decision may be postponed until Aug. 16 because several aldermen will be absent for the earlier meeting.

 
Regional music lineup to highlight Fish Day PDF Print E-mail

Saturday festival in Port to feature performers with area roots, run/walk, parade and plenty of fried fish

There will be a distinctly regional flair to the music heard Saturday, July 16, at Fish Day, Port Washington’s largest festival.

The list of performers from the area starts with country artists Josh Thompson, a Cedarburg native whose mother lives in Port, and Nora Collins, who hails from Brookfield. They will headline the Main Stage, with Collins opening for Thompson, just as they did in 2014.

The list extends to the side stages, where Milwaukee area groups like the Briton, Road Crew, Bobby Way and the Way Outs and The Rush Tribute Project will perform.

“There’s such a huge contingent of talent in the region,” Fish Day General Chairman Mary Monday said. “When we got Josh back and Nora back, we said let’s see if we can really make this a celebration of the talent you can find here.”

This year’s 52nd annual Fish Day celebration — the oldest festival in the city —  will follow the theme “Fishmas in July.”

It includes something for everyone — an 8-kilometer run and 2-mile fun walk and run, parade, carnival, classic car show, arts and crafts area, smoked fish-eating contest, music, fireworks and, of course, a bounty of golden fried fish and chips.

Fish and chips are sold at seven stands run by local civic organizations that use the proceeds for community projects such as park improvements and scholarships.

In addition, chicken strips, cheese curds, craft and traditional beer, nonalcoholic beer, hard lemonade, Gatorade, soda and water will be sold at the stands.

 Fish Day kicks off at 8 a.m. with a run and walk to benefit Portal Industries. The race will be chip timed, providing precise information and almost instantaneous reading of the results.

The parade starts at 10 a.m., with units stepping off from the corner of Wisconsin Street and Walters Street, proceeding south on Wisconsin to Grand Avenue, then continuing west to Wisconsin Street.

Among the units will be perennial crowd favorites such as New Generation and the South Shore Drill Team from Chicago.

Representatives of Port Washington State Bank, the longest-standing sponsor of the festival, will be the parade marshal. Alyssa Lanagan of Grafton High School, who designed the Fish Day logo, will be the junior marshal.

On the festival grounds, music is the main attraction.

This the first time Fish Day has had a repeat Main Stage headliner, Monday said.

“Josh was such a hit, people were asking for him to come back,” she said. “And then we thought, if we’re going to bring him back, why not Nora?”

Thompson, whose latest album “Change: The Lost Record, Volume One” is described as his most introspective, will take the stage at 8:30 p.m. 

His first single “Beer on the Table,” hit No. 16 on the Billboard country chart, and his second, “Way Out Here” hit the top 40.

Thompson’s sophomore disc, “Turn It Up,” debuted in the top 10 and produced two singles —“Cold Beer With Your Name On It” and “Wanted Me Gone.”

Collins will perform at 8 p.m.

 Also performing at the Main Stage during the afternoon will be Road Crew.

The headliner for the Blues Stage is Dynasty, a Chicago blues band.  

The Bandshell Stage headliner is The Britins, while The Rush Tribute Project will headline the Lakeview Stage. 

Local and regional acts will perform on stages throughout the day.

All the music at Fish Day is free, with the exception of the Main Stage acts. A Fish Day button is required for entrance there. The button is $2 before the festival or $5 at the gate.

A number of the food stands will also have musical groups.

Fish Day features a wide variety of events for families, including a carnival with a large Ferris wheel. 

Helicopter rides will take off from Upper Lake Park.

The traditional smoked fish-eating contest will be at 2:30 p.m. at the Lakeview Stage.

The soccer water fights in Veterans Park will begin at 3 p.m. Teams of three youths can sign up for the fights at 2:30 p.m.The Upper Lake Park bluff is the location for the arts and crafts show and the classic car show, which run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The festival closes with a fireworks display at 9:30 p.m. Fireworks are set off from Coal Dock Park, which will be closed after 1 p.m. as crews prepare for the show.

Free shuttle buses will run throughout the city, stopping at designated points marked by signs.

In addition, buses will pick up and drop off passengers at the Ozaukee County Justice Center on South Spring Street, Harbor Hills on Port’s west side, the Ozaukee County park-and-ride lot off Seven Hills Road on the city’s north side and Walmart in Saukville.

Pets are not allowed on the grounds, and visitors are not allowed to bring backpacks into the festival. Bikes, skates and skateboards are also prohibited.

Study of PWHS outdoor facilities to sharpen focus for fundraising PDF Print E-mail

School Board hires firm whose analysis of athletic fields will help foundation prioritize needs, cost

The Port Washington-Saukville School Board last week commissioned a study of outdoor high school athletic facilities that is intended to be a blueprint for fundraising spearheaded by a recently formed foundation.

The district will hire Point of Beginning, a surveying, landscape architecture and engineering firm from Stevens Point, to analyze Port Washington High School’s football, baseball and track and field facilities and recommend improvements.

The site analysis will cost $2,000, officials said. 

“The cost is not over the top because they see it as laying the groundwork for doing the work in the future,” Director of Business Services Jim Froemming said.

Improvements being considered include an artificial turf football field and possibly baseball fields, new bleachers and other football field-related improvements and an eight-lane running track.

Artificial turf, which is used by several schools in Port High’s athletic conference, seems to be central to the district’s improvement plan because the durable surface could be more heavily used for a variety of activities while reducing maintenance costs. For instance, the current grass football field, which is used almost exclusively for games, could also serve as a soccer field and be used for gym classes if an artificial surface is installed.

“Ideally, if you could do full turf on all the fields you could have soccer practice as early as you want in spring and accommodate gym classes and football,” Froemming said.

Because the school’s athletic facilities are in a relatively compact space just west of the school, the district decided it needed the expertise of a professional firm to redesign the outdoor athletic area.

“It’s going to take someone with some creativity to work with a piece of property like this and expand the outdoor athletic opportunities for our students,” Supt. Michael Weber said.

The recommended improvements will come at a significant cost, and having passed a $49.4 million referendum last year to make building improvements at the high school and Dunwiddie Elementary School, the district is not in a position to pay for them. That’s where the PWSSD Foundation Inc. comes in.

The group is in the process of becoming a nonprofit organization and, while independent of the district, it is working closely with school officials to raise money for improvements in the district.

The hope is the foundation, which with its nonprofit status can offer tax incentives to prospective donors, will be able to leverage large corporate contributions in addition to smaller gifts from individuals and groups.

Of possible help in the foundation’s mission is a recently approved policy that allows the School Board to grant naming rights in exchange for large donations.

The first step, however, is the outdoor facilities study, which in addition to guiding the district will give the foundation a plan to show potential donors.

“The foundation asked for a commitment from the district to come up with a plan,” Weber said. “They have to have a target to shoot for.”

Decision paves way for Port-Saukville district to market 54.5 acres of farmland it has owned on city’s west side since 1969

The Port Washington-Saukville School Board voted unanimously Monday to sell 54.5 acres the district has hung on to for 47 years as a site for a school.

Convinced that with the approval of a $49.4 million school renovation referendum last year the district won’t need a new building in the foreseeable future, the board will seek proposals from real estate brokers, then choose a company to market what is now farmland north of Grand Avenue and east of Highway LL on the City of Port Washington’s west side.

“I think this is a gem of a piece of property for residential development,” Supt. Michael Weber said. “It has really nice, family-friendly developments on three sides of it.”

The land is flanked by subdivisions on three sides — Spinnaker West to the south,  The Woods at White Pine to the west and Lake Ridge to the east — and bordered by farmland to the north. Although ideally located for residential development, it’s a less-than-ideal school site because there is no suitable access to the land for the high volumes of traffic a school generates, officials said. 

The value of the land has yet to be determined, Weber said, but the property could net a significant sum. Under school funding rules, the district can use the proceeds to fund capital improvements or purchase other land without affecting the state aid it receives, Director of Business Services Jim Froemming said.

“We’re going to have the broker work with an appraiser to determine the value of the land and a minimum price for the property,” Weber said. 

The school district purchased the property, which is comprised of two parcels, in January 1969 from Elmer and Myrtle Bley for $149,944, long before the subdivisions around it were developed.

“In (1969), the board dreamed of the future,” Froemming said last month. “The question is, does this property have a future in the school district today?”

The answer, school officials said, is no.

The district’s most pressing facility needs will be addressed by the referendum work, which includes a $45.6 million Port Washington High School project and a $3.8 million addition to Dunwiddie Elementary School. Even when the board broached the idea of building a high school on a new site, the land the district already owned wasn’t considered because it is too small by contemporary high school standards.

“It might be big enough for a middle school, but we don’t need a middle school,” Weber said. 

The land could also accommodate an elementary school, but the Dunwiddie project will address space needs in the primary grades. In addition, each of the three elementary schools have space to expand if needed in the future. 

Selling the property could benefit the district in several ways, school officials said. In addition to generating money for capital improvements, the sale will likely result in a residential development that will attract families to Port Washington and boost school enrollment.

“The school district has had this property since 1969, so the board wanted to take its time and make sure this was done right,” Weber said. “The big step was making the decision to sell the land. Now that that’s been done, I think the board will move fairly quickly.”
