New initiative for "green" downtown Sturgeon Bay

The new owner of the old Door County Advocate building in Sturgeon Bay is hoping to convince other businesses on Third Avenue to become more eco-friendly.  Shirley Wiese Young has started an initiative to make the Sturgeon Bay downtown a carbon-neutral, fossil-free community.  Virg Temme, the architect that is currently remodeling the old Advocate building for Young, says the reception has been positive so far by downtown businesses to install solar panels on their rooftops.



Temme says Young has just finished her tenure on the national board of directors for the Sierra Club and is still currently on the board for Ceres, one of the premier organizations trying to curtail climate change.
