County approves next phase of Cana Island, Washington Island projects

The Door County Board of Supervisors gave approval to two resolutions on Tuesday aimed at giving a pair of historic buildings new life.


The board first approved entering phase 1 of a plan to turn the historic Island Dairy building on Washington Island into a new emergency medical services facility. It coincides with the county working with Samuels Group Inc. for design work.


The board also agreed to start the fourth and final phase of the Cana Island restoration project. It includes working with the Door County Maritime Museum to secure enough funds to restore the lighthouse keeper’s quarters to its former glory. The building had previously been used not just as a museum but it also housed a small gift shop.


Restoring historic buildings for government use is nothing new for Door County after it was able to turn its old highway shop into the new Aging and Disability Resource Center and EMS facility a few years ago. Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says it is a win for everyone when they are able to do so effectively and cost-efficiently.

The Door County Board also approved the donation of approximately 43 acres of land near the Door/Kewaunee border that Pabich says will be a part of the park system in the future.
