Door County's unique issues in rural housing crisis

Seasonal housing growth in Door County is among the unique issues in a nationwide shortage of affordable housing.  The Housing Assistance Council, a non-profit group that helps build homes in rural areas, says no new USDA financed rental housing has been developed in years and existing housing is becoming less affordable. Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jim says the growth of Airbnb properties to attract seasonal tenants is contributing to the shortage in Door County.



The DCEDC has been doing a survey on housing needs in Door County.  That survey is expected to be released in early February.
