A bill designed to ease shortages of affordable worker housing will be discussed by the Door County Board of Supervisors. They'll take up a resolution Tuesday night concerning support of Assembly Bill 544. It was written with a great deal of help from Door County leaders, who worked with the Wisconsin Economic Development Association. Door County Administrator Ken Pabich was at WEDA's recent meeting where he says affordable housing was a major topic of discussion.
If enacted, Assembly Bill 544 would create a $10-million pilot program that would provide grants or tax credits to developers that commit to worker housing projects. A resolution of support will be on the agenda when the Door County Board of Supervisors meets at 10:00 AM Tuesday, January 28th at the Door County Government Center on Nebraska Street.
