DCEDC pleas for public to give housing input

The housing crunch in Sturgeon Bay will be addressed on Wednesday when the City of Sturgeon Bay Plan Commission conducts a public hearing. The highlighted topics are Planned Unit Development applications for housing units at two different spots in the city. One application submitted is from Northpointe Development Corporation to construct a 53-unit multiple-family dwelling. This would be placed on East maple Street on the West Waterfront. The other is the former Westside School, in which Phillips Development, LLC has put in a PUD application to renovate it into a 10-unit, multi-family dwelling. 


According to Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Steve Jenkins, there’s a couple of additional housing projects in the works as well, which will be announced in the next six weeks. Jenkins says there are exciting developments that are happening up and down the peninsula. He talks about the long-term decisions people are faced with because of the housing crunch.



Jenkins mentioned that a 2019 housing study showed the county was short 500 units. He says they’re considering updating that study because he believes there’s an even greater shortage now. Jenkins says among the projects currently waiting for approval and others in earlier planning stages, he estimates about half of them will fall under the affordable housing category.
