DCEDC looks to build modular home manufacturing facility

Seeing built homes leaving the Sturgeon Bay Industrial Park could be a part of your daily commute in the future. The Door County Economic Development Corporation is looking at acquiring the necessary grants to build a modular home manufacturing facility. The organization would partner with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, the Door County Homebuilder’s Association, and participating school districts to build homes that would have a price point of between $99,000 and $159,000. Director of Business Development Julie Schmelzer says the proposed project could have multiple benefits to the community that is currently lacking affordable housing options and future contractors.

The concept is based on a similar program set up in Sheboygan County. The project will not get off the ground if there is no grant funding, though the Sturgeon Bay Common Council approving a donation of just under four acres of land in the Sturgeon Bay Industrial Park would still be a step forward. The council will discuss that decision during its Tuesday meeting.
