A local organization is hoping through education and action that they will be able to address the affordable housing shortage in Door County. Interfaith Prosperity Coalition of Door County began two years ago to address concerns about the lack of services in northern Door. They discovered improving affordable housing in the area would have the biggest impact on the quality of life in northern Door. With that in mind, they contacted similar communities like Nantucket, Massachusetts and developed a film to help educate people on what the lack of attainable and affordable housing is doing to local families. Diana Wallace from the Interfaith Prosperity Coalition says their efforts now focus on the entire county and those who understand the issue can embrace the changes necessary to fix the problem.
You can learn more about the issues associated with affordable and attainable housing in Door County during three presentations being held this month in Sister Bay, Sturgeon Bay, and Brussels. The coalition’s short film and information on those three sessions can be found online with this story.
