Some prime Sturgeon Bay redevelopment sites got second looks thanks to Door County Economic Development Corporations recent developers summit. The private event attracted a dozen developers from throughout the state. The idea was to show them Sturgeon Bay's assets for reuse and repurposing. DCEDC Executive Director Jim Schuessler says the site drawing the most interest was the Westside Waterfront area.
The need for new and affordable housing was a point DCEDC and community leaders made to those attending the summit. Schuessler says a pair of other redevelopment sites also seemed to generate interest from visiting developers.
Schuessler says plans for another developers summit are being made for later this year, possibly in the fall.
