CDA wants more say in how city is developed PDF Print E-mail

Members say they should have been consulted before Ansay property negotiations

Members of the Port Washington Community Development Authority, stung by the December announcement that the city was negotiating the sale of 44 acres of land it owns to Ansay Development for a corporate campus, are seeking a greater say in how the city is developed.

Several members said at a recent meeting that they were surprised by the decision, which was made with little input from the public, and asked why their recommendation was not sought.

The CDA’s mission is defined as working on blighted properties and so-called brownfield sites, City Planner Randy Tetzlaff said.

The property that Ansay is eying is a parcel south of the We Energies power plant, undeveloped land that doesn’t fall within the CDA’s mission, he said.

Planning for these properties, known as greenfield sites, is designated to the Plan Commission, Tetzlaff said.

But CDA members said that the Plan Commission is generally an approval body, not an activist one. 

Their mission more appropriately should include planning throughout the city, they said.

“We’re not called the Community Redevelopment Authority,” member Erica Roller said.

Member Jason Wittek said that the city needs to do visionary planning, something that the CDA has experience in. He cited the group’s work in creating the downtown redevelopment plan.

“The greenfields are as important if not more important than these brownfield sites,” Wittek said.

Members asked if they could go beyond their stated mission to plan for greenfield sites, but Tetzlaff said City Attorney Eric Eberhardt “strongly advised” that they not do that.

Ald. Mike Ehrlich, chairman of the CDA, suggested that the group ask the Plan Commission for authority to look at planning for greenfield sites.

“We need to have an overall, encompassing plan,” he said. “Let’s get the Plan Commission’s take on it.”

“That makes sense,” Roller said. “Otherwise we’re over here doing our little thing and they’re over there doing their little thing.”

The CDA’s request is expected to be brought before the Plan Commission in March, Ehrlich said.

 
Port to start negotiations for new senior center PDF Print E-mail

Council decides that talking with Aurora Healthcare about Grand Avenue clinic will help determine facility’s future

The Port Washington Common Council on Tuesday agreed to begin negotiations with Aurora Healthcare to acquire its clinic on the far west side of the city for a senior center.

But aldermen stressed that the negotiations are only a first step meant to determine how plausible a move to the site may be.

“This is like data gathering,” Ald. Dan Becker said. “This is just sitting down and getting the ball rolling. This is a long ways from happening.”

Ald. Bill Driscoll, a member of the Commission on Aging, said that the negotiations will determine whether it’s realistic to consider acquiring the clinic at 1777 W. Grand Ave. or if the city needs to look elsewhere.

“We want to be able to move forward to see if there are any possibilities there,” he said. “I do think it makes sense to at least investigate this.”

But Ald. Doug Biggs, noting that the facility acquisition and renovations could cost $1 million, questioned whether this is the right time to negotiate.

“Where’s that money coming from?” he asked. “Isn’t it disingenuous to negotiate with someone if you don’t have any funding sources?

“From a fiscal responsibility standpoint, I have real concern about negotiating without anything in my pocket.”

The city, he noted, has said it doesn’t want to be responsible for building a senior center.

The Commission on Aging and its ad-hoc committee have discussed fundraising,  Senior Center Director Catherine Kiener said.

“You can’t go out and ask for money without knowing what it’s going to be used for,” she said. “We know funds are tight. We want the city to partner with us.”

Beginning negotiations can only help further the fundraising, Ald. Dave Larson said.

“If we don’t have anything to shoot for, it’s much more difficult,” he said. “There’s nothing wrong with opening the door and seeing where it leads us. We need to keep our options open.”

The commission and committee have begun to identify potential grants for the senior center, Kiener said.

Many grants are only available to communities, Driscoll noted.

In addition, a survey about the senior center revealed that many people are willing to contribute to the purchase, she noted. They’ve already received a small donation that will be used by the Friends of the Senior Center to open an account for the capital campaign.

The survey was done last year after the city said it would not extend the lease for the current senior center at 403 W. Foster St. beyond June 2017.

The city made its decision based on the cost of the lease and the fact that numerous seniors said they are dissatisfied with the current center building, saying the parking is inconvenient and there are too many steps in the building.

The idea of buying the medical clinic for a senior or community center was endorsed by a number of residents at Tuesday’s meeting.

“I know there are people in the area of Port Washington who do not come to the center because of its location and the parking,” said Tim Lewein, a member of the senior center board.

“This would be a welcoming type of building for everyone,” added center board member Mary Niedermeyer.

The clinic seems to best meet all the center’s needs, several members of the Commission on Aging and ad hoc committee told officials.

It has between 12,000 and 15,000 square feet of usable space on one floor, is handicapped accessible and has plenty of parking.

The layout is conducive to a center, with a reception area at the entrance, and the entire building is wired for technology, a plus in today’s digital world, they said.

It is next to city-owned land that is slated for a ball park, making it an ideal site for a multi-generational facility.

“That’s a vision worth at least pursuing,” Commission on Aging Chairman David Owens said.

Several aldermen said they, too, like the location.

“I think the possibilities are tremendous,” Ald. Mike Ehrlich said. “I like the location. I think moving forward with baby steps is good.”

“We need to keep our options open,” Ald. Dave Larson said. “I do not want to close the door on anything.”

 
Marina district plan receives warm reception PDF Print E-mail

Proposal for parking lot, formal entryway praised by Harbor Commission but changes are expected

A preliminary plan to create a marina district, complete with a formal entryway off Washington Street, was presented to the Port Washington Harbor Commission Monday.

Although the plan is still expected to be tweaked before it heads to the Common Council for approval, commission members gave a preliminary thumbs up to the concept.

“I think you guys did an excellent job with it,” Ald. Bill Driscoll, a member of the commission, said. “This looks nice.”

“I like it,” added member Tony Matera.

The plan, which has been in the works for about a year, is the brainchild of the Main Street Design Committee. It’s intended to not only beautify the area but make it more pedestrian friendly while retaining parking and traffic flow in the marina, Ald. Mike Ehrlich, a committee member and architect, said.

In addition to making changes to parking in the area, it would actually add a few spaces, he said.

The plan calls for a bump-out on the south side of Washington Street at Harborview Lane, where some sort of entryway would be created, perhaps using signs or a structure of some sort, Ehrlich said.

Instead of parking parallel to the curb on the south side of Washington Street east of Harborview Lane, the plan calls for parking at a right angle to the curb, which would maximize the number of spaces, he said.

There would be no parking on the north side of that block.

While the marina’s far south parking lot  would remain unchanged, the area just north of that, off pier three, would have convertible parking stalls that could accommodate 21 boat trailers and, when there aren’t many trailers, 42 cars, Ehrlich said.

City Administrator Mark Grams said this would likely maximize the use since the trailers typically use the lot in the morning, not in the afternoons or evenings.

A plaza with green space and a drop-off area would be created in the parking area off pier four, separating it from the southern lots, Ehrlich said. This would not only break up the sea of asphalt in the parking lot, it would also provide an area for a fire pit that could be used by marina tenants and offer better pedestrian access to the lakefront.

A walkway would extend from Washington Street into the plaza area.

“The idea is to create a better connection to the harbor, to create amenities that people can use and create an entrance to the marina that is nicer than all asphalt,” Ehrlich said.

Design committee member Adam Brown added, “Crossing that sea of asphalt with cars in it puts people on edge. Having that pathway is beneficial to everyone.” 

The plan also calls for a deck to wrap around the northern marina building that could be used by marina tenants.

Commission members suggested the committee consider making Washington Street one-way heading east. They said consideration also needs to be given to the creation of a loading zone at the current north-slip parking lot, which the city is considering selling for the Blues Factory.

Commission members suggested that the group look at creating additional trailer parking in a city-owned lot at the corner of Lake and Jackson streets, perhaps by eliminating the grassy parkway.

Ehrlich said there is no timeline for the work or any cost estimates, noting changes will still be made. The Design Committee is expected to tweak the concept before the Harbor Commission reviews it again on Feb. 8. 

 
City chided for hurrying land deal without public input PDF Print E-mail

Developer says more debate was needed before council started sales talks with Ansay

Port Washington developer Gertjan van den Broek on Tuesday chided the Common Council for its recent decision to negotiate exclusively with Ansay Development for the purchase of a 44-acre parcel of city-owned land.

“The question I kept asking myself is how did I miss the start of this,” he told aldermen, saying he was caught off guard by the council’s actions.

In the past, he said, officials have been open about the potential sale of property, publicly discussing efforts to redevelop land whether it is publicly or privately owned, and seeking input on the best uses.

“I’m a firm believer in the marketplace of ideas,” he said. “I’ve always thought the city was good at seeking ideas.”

Many of these discussions start at the Community Development Authority, he said, noting that in October the group talked about such things as the NorthPort Shopping Center, Jadair property, a former trailer park on South Spring Street and the marina district concept.

The controversial decision to seek proposals for a city-owned marina parking lot was discussed by the CDA for months, he noted.

“I think it’s a very good precedent for our city to open opportunities,” he said. “Let the best ideas rise to the top.”

That didn’t happen in this case, van den Broek said. 

Instead, the city held a special meeting to consider a proposal by Ansay Development to create a corporate headquarters, training center and boutique hotel on 44 acres of undeveloped, city-owned land just south of the We Energies power plant and agreed to negotiate exclusively with the firm for 60 days.

Van den Broek noted that the original plat of Port Washington showed a city of 48.6 acres — nearly the same size as the parcel Ansay wants to buy.

“It’s a really important site,” he said, adding the city needs to take care to consider all the potential uses in order to find the right one for the community.

 
Port Town Board reappoints clerk PDF Print E-mail

Supervisors stand by hiring of Karrels after she came under fire from radio show host for salary miscalculation

The Port Washington Town Board on Monday gave Town Clerk Cheryl Karrels a ringing endorsement and reappointed her to a one-year term, settling, officials hope, any questions about her performance.

The town came under fire earlier this month from WISN radio talk show host Mark Belling after Karrels mistakenly overpaid herself because of an error in a resolution approved by the board. Karrels refunded the overpayment as soon as the mistake was realized.

Town Chairman Jim Melichar called it an honest mistake and said if anyone is to blame it’s him because he didn’t catch the error before the ordinance was approved.

Although the board on Monday voted unanimously to reappoint Karrels, members disagreed over how much she should be paid.  According to the resolution approved by Melichar and Supr. Mike Didier, Karrels’ salary will remain at $35,100 a year. She is also eligible to receive a maximum of 60 per diem payments of $50 for attending meetings and training sessions.

Supr. Jim Rychtik, who voted against the measure, argued Karrels should be paid $39,000 a year, the same salary former clerk Jennifer Schlenvogt received.

“As far as I’m concerned, you’re doing a great job,” Rychtik told Karrels. “Everything is getting done.”

Karrels, however, said she doesn’t want more money.

“I wasn’t looking for a raise,” she said. “And the 60 per diem (payments) ... that’s a lot.”

During an interview, Karrels added, “I didn’t want to be just handed a raise. This will be a big election year. I want to earn a raise.”

Karrels said the town should instead consider increasing the number of per diem payments for Treasurer Mary Sampont, who is eligible to receive only 29 payments. 

“Mary puts in all these hours collecting taxes and doesn’t get paid for them,” Karrels said.

Town officials seemed to agree but noted that because Sampont is an elected official, her compensation is set by town electors. They said the issue could be considered during the meeting of the electors in spring.

Picked from several candidates, Karrels was named clerk in July to succeed Schlenvogt, who resigned on June 30.

According to the minutes of the July 10 Town Board meeting, officials agreed to pay Karrels 10% less than Schlenvogt, which amounted to $35,100. However, the resolution formally appointing Karrels clerk erroneously listed the salary at $37,000.

Karrels said that when she began work on July 15, she found the resolution on her desk and, unaware of the mistake, used it to determine her pay.

After the mistake was discovered and Town Attorney Steve Cain said on Dec. 8 that he interpreted the documents to mean she should be paid $35,100 plus per diem pay, Karrels said she calculated the overpayment and wrote a check to the town for that amount.

“I wanted it clean and done immediately,” she said earlier this month.

Melichar said he believes the mistake occurred because Cain added per diem payments to Schlenvogt’s salary, then reduced the total amount by 10% when calculating Karrels’ salary instead of just using Schlenvogt’s annual salary.

“It was an oversight by all of us,” Melichar said. “I’ll take responsibility because I’m the chairman.”
