Attainable housing could be one option developed on land recently cleared by the Town of Liberty Grove. The town purchased the site of the former Val-A Motel earlier this year with the hopes of developing the land for future use. After testing the site and flirted with the idea of it being a potential training ground for the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department before the redevelopment would occur, the former motel buildings were torn down earlier this month. Town Chairperson John Lowry says now they can move forward.
A county study completed earlier this year showed an extreme lack of housing options in northern Door, including units for the senior and seasonal workforce populations.
