Two Door County affordable housing projects are being greeted with opposition. In Sturgeon Bay, a popular softball field is at stake when it comes to plans by Northpointe Development to turn an old school building into 40 apartment units. A plan to turn a former cherry processing site into a series of seasonal housing units is also being met with brushback by local residents in Baileys Harbor. Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jim Schuessler says the big picture regarding affordable housing in the area needs to be understood.
A housing study released by the DCEDC earlier this year showed Door County short hundreds of workforce rental apartments and other affordable housing options.
