Egg Harbor bestowed with Governor's Tourism Award

The Village of Egg Harbor received a Governor’s Tourism Award last week.  Nominated by Destination Door County, Egg Harbor took the initiative in 2017 to bring more sustainable practices by becoming a Green Tier Legacy community.  Village Administrator Ryan Heise shares some of the eco-friendly programs implemented.



Heise adds that the village is working on the removal of invasive species and installing solar energy at the Kress Pavilion.  The village also streamlined building and zoning codes to make it easier for residents to install solar energy.    Egg Harbor was chosen over six other communities that were nominated for the Stewardship Award.  You can listen to the entire interview with Ryan Heise on the Podcast Page at
