Members of the Door County Board of Supervisors did a walk-through of the now-vacant Younker's Home store on 4th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. The county is looking at the building as a possible archive for historical artifacts and records. Friday's tour was to show supervisors where improvements may need to be made including the roof, windows and heating and cooling systems. The Facilities and Parks Committee approved a resolution in favor of the purchase. While there are a few more steps before the deal could be closed, County Administrator Ken Pabich says the site is ideal for the county's needs.
The Younkers purchase proposal will go before the full County Board of Supervisor January 22nd.
