The Door County Economic Development Corporation has received an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the housing study they performed. Jim Schuessler, the Executive Director for the DCEDC, says he has heard from at least 11 developers that have expressed interest in building new housing in Door County. The DCEDC is working with many Door County municipalities in trying to grow housing in their communities. Schuessler says housing of all kinds needs to become available for all different types of people in Door County.
Schuessler added that at some point, the DCEDC would get out of the way and let each municipality deal directly with the developer. He believes the resources are available to make the Door County housing crisis better for everybody.
