Comprehensive Plan Deadline Topic at Marinette City Council

Issue Date: March 3, 2021

At the City of Marinette Common Council meeting on Tuesday, March 2, Mayor Steve Genisot gave his Mayors Report in reference to the Marinette Comprehensive Plan.

In his report Mayor Genisot stated the Comprehensive Plan needs to be updated since it has been 20 years since it has last been updated. Genisot said, "I would like to have more citizens input and further clarification for the downtown and the hospital". Alderman Doug Oitzinger added, "The last time we updated the plan was quite a few years ago when I was the only one on the present Council that was an Alderman at that time and it took two years to complete. Now Bay Lakes Planning wants it completed by June 20. I am concerned it is not being handled at a level of detail. The Mayor has engaged in discussion to see if we can up their game". Genisot replied, "Also without meeting in person due to the Pandemic and potential development in the future, I think we really need to have expanded focus. We will continue the discussion and the Planning Commission will certainly be involved".

Alderman Jeff Skorik added, "The Plan Commission has been looking at the work Bay Lakes has done so far and I would really like to encourage people to voice their opinion.There was a survey available for people to be able to take and it is really important to get a broad spectrum of peoples ideas. It is important we get a lot of input from the people so that we can come up with a plan that will work for everyone". Oitzinger added, "Just to emphasize your point, there were only 84 results returned and the original comprehensive plan we had 648 surveys returned". Genisot ended with "The time line is short and we need to discuss further and have to dig a little deeper and have additional input". It was agreed to discuss with Bay Lakes to get more input and extend the completion date time line.

Genisot then mentioned that the Common Council meeting for April will be moved to April 13th instead of April 6th due to the election on the 6th. He also announced that the board game, "MarinetteOpoly" is now available to purchase at stores in the area.

With March being Amyloidosis awareness month, Adison Lacey, a student at the middle school presented on the cancer disease that is extremely under-diagnosed to raise awareness of the disease. Amyloidosis occurs when there is a buildup of protein in bone marrow that may spread to organs leading to organ failure. It is extremely deadly and does not have a lot in the means of treatment. One of the reasons it is so deadly is that many people, including doctors are not aware of it and the sooner the diagnosis, the better it can be treated. Lacey said, "My dad got this disease when I was five and almost died from it. Raising awareness is very important so I wanted to reach out and make people aware of this deadly disease. Reaching out to even a few people can make a difference". For more information you can contact the Amyloidosis Foundation at 7151 N. Main St., Suite 2, Clarkston, Mi 48346, Phone 248-922-9610 or website: www.amyloidosis.org.

Melissa Ebsch, Marketing and Tourism Director, spoke on recent events held at the REC Center. "There were two back to back events. In February the Fishing, Boating Outdoor event was held with over 4,000 attendees over a course of three days and was very successful. It shows what we are capable of doing. There were many vendors, campers and boats, etc. The weekend of February 27 we had Let Us Be Frank productions with Menoma Mia. We had over 250 attend with a lot of positive feedback from the attendees".

Ebsch then handed out a list of 2021 events that will be happening including, March 12 - 14, Bob and Rocco Gun and Knife Show; March 20, Spring Art & Craft Show; April 17, Home and Garden Show; April 24, All Things Kids Expo; May 1, Spring Fling Parking Lot Sale; July 24, Outdoor Flea Market; Aug. 3, National Night Out; Aug. 6 Kids Day In Marinette; Aug. 20, Mayhem On Main; Oct. 2, Lets Be Frank, Franks Family Feud; Oct. 9, Mom Prom; Oct. 18, 3rd Annual Antique & Flea Market; Oct. 23, 2nd Annual Blues, Brews, BBQ & Hockey; Nov. 19, Old World Christmas and Dec. 4, Christmas In Marinette Craft Show.

Oitzinger asked if there was going to be a mask mandate for the Gun and Knife show. Ebsch replied, "Yes, We told the organizers that masks are required and attendees will be monitored coming in the door. They have their own licensed security people and our Police Department will also be patrolling the building".

Genisot announced that an Urban Wildlife Damage Abatement and Control Project Grant was awarded to the City of Marinette in the amount of $3,000. The grant is to assist the city to develop an urban wildlife population control plan, monitor wildlife populations, remove deer using sharpshooters, capture and translocate deer or geese, implement managed hunts, remove resident Canada geese, perform health and tissue sampling, process and distribute to charitable organization, modify the habitat and implement other control/ abatement practices".

Ayres Associates Municipal Engineer Pete Kolaszewski addressed the Council via Zoom in regards to closing of two CDBG Grants for Ayres to provide grant bidding and administration of two grant projects including Dunlap Avenue and Maple Street and the Fire Department Storage Facility. Ayres will assist the City by providing professional services related to the grants with the many, many documents, procedures and bid processes that are involved with these two projects. Council approved Ayres to provide guidance and professional services for both projects.

In the Personnel and License report, five new operator liquor license applications were approved for Megan R. Bintz, Alexander Kellner, Joe Posephny, Kyle Engel and Amanda Johnston, with Engel and Johnston contingent upon paying all fines due to the City of Marinette. Also approved was a temporary class B fermented malt beverage license for Marinette Menominee Youth Hockey Association (MMYHA) for M&M dangle Fest event being held on March 26 - 28 at the REC Center.

Later in the meeting, Council approved the Transportation Coordination Committee (Shared Ride Taxi Inc) resolution for a contract between the City and Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission for professional services to provide technical assistance for the administration of the 2021 Shared Ride Taxi Program with a cost not to exceed $2,400. An ordinance was also approved for amending a local shopping district for a conditional use permit to allow trailer storage for a dump style trailer rental business with 20 foot maximum length of trailer. This will be as a conditional use and then would have to go back to the Plan Commission.
