Stars align for preservation of Sister Bay's Pebble Beach

A failed project in southern Wisconsin and the generosity of the property owners and village officials are allowing the Door County Land Trust to protect Sister Bay’s Pebble Beach. The village of Sister Bay and the Door County Land Trust announced Wednesday it was partnering up to purchase the property which includes 600 feet of shoreline and 17 acres of land. The property’s owners, the Luber and Downey families lowered the original asking price of $3.6 million to $2.5 million to protect the land from possibly being subdivided for future development. With the village contributing $1 million, Door County Land Trust Executive Director Tom Clay says securing a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for another $1 million took some luck.

The organization hopes to raise $500,000 to fund the remaining amount of the purchase before it closes on the property in September. Clay says the village of Sister Bay hopes they will be able to fund their portion of the cost with help from a Knowles-Nelson Stewardship grant.
