Downtown Building Heights
Permitted building heights in the downtown area have been evolving over the past 45 years. The 1962 Comprehensive Plan contained a zoning ordinance where the maximum permitted building height be 85 feet in the B4 (Central Business District), which was later codified in the 1970 zoning ordinance. In the 1980’s through the creation of overlay districts, the height limit was modified to make the area east of Franklin Street to the lake 35 feet by right but up to 85 feet by conditional use and a simple majority vote. The intent was to create an outer bowl of taller buildings which remained at 85 feet. During this time, a local businessman proposed a high-rise in the vicinity of E. Pier and Jackson Streets which was not constructed but the Lighthouse Condominium project on N. Lake Street was approved. In 2004, in reaction to the Lighthouse Condos, the overlay districts were repealed and the maximum permitted height for new buildings was still 35 feet but could be increased to 61 feet (the average height of Harbor Square) by special exception and a 2/3 vote. At the time of this new ordinance, an inventory of building heights was undertaken and it determined that 26 buildings exceeded 35 feet. Under this ordinance, a special exception for Harbour Lights was approved. In 2014, the Council agreed that each project requesting a special exception would be decided on its merits and that 61 feet was an arbitrary maximum height and it was repealed. Site and building design would be taken into consideration when considering a special exception and a 2/3 vote would still be required.

I-43 Detour in 2018
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation plans to diamond grind 17 miles of I-43 from mid-August 2018 to mid-December 2018 in Ozaukee County. The project will include several safety upgrades too. To facilitate this fast track project schedule, WisDOT is proposing to close I-43 during the evening hours and detour evening traffic onto local and county roadways. For more details on the traffic control staging/detour plans, please click here.

Employment Opportunity
The City of Port Washington Adult Community Senior Center has a part-time position available for Senior Center Assistant. Please visit our City of Port Washington Employment page for more information.

Water Rate Increase
The Port Washington Municipal Water Utility has filed an application with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) to increase water rates, which has been approved. The increase is necessary due to a 23% increase in utility plant investment and a 6% increase in operating expenses in the 9 years since the last water rate case in 2008. A typical residential customer's bill will rise 4%, beginning with the December 1, 2017 billing.
