New hope for west side school project

There may be hope after all for new affordable housing at the former West Side School in Sturgeon Bay. Part of a string of resolutions passed by the Door County Board of Supervisors opened the door for a possible community block grant to be used at the site for a housing project. As a condition of the grant, at least 51 percent of the available units would have to be for low-to-moderate-income individuals. The board also approved a citizen participation plan and designated a committee to oversee hearings regarding the project. Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says it is a win-win for the county and the city, especially for those that were worried about the future of the adjacent park.

Pabich added the county and the city will announce more details when renderings are available. The Door County Board of Supervisors also passed a plan that would try to minimize the direct and indirect displacement of individuals from housing. Pabich says the string of resolutions were required to be eligible for the federal assistance.
