Waterfront access, park planned for Gills Rock property

Town electors in Liberty Grove hope to see waterfront access maintained and some walking trails be developed on recently purchased parcels in Gills Rock.  The ad hoc committee discussed the results of its survey at its annual meeting last week. The town’s electors approved the purchase of the three parcels, which include 440 feet of shoreline and a dock, back in October. The Door County Environmental Council offered to conduct the survey again due to some concerns they had with the questions and how it was carried out, but the town board decided the 30 percent participation rate gave them enough information. Town chairperson John Lowry says it was about what they expected.

Work on at least a portion of the site will be held off for potentially two years while one of the former property owners finds a new place to live. On Friday, the town of Liberty Grove also closed on the site of the former Val-A Motel in Ellison Bay, which could be the future home of affordable housing options in the area.
