County to move on from Younkers building for museum/archives project

While you could see the Door County Historical Museum and its archives building expand in the coming years, you will do so without the former Younkers building. The Door County Board of Supervisors will look to move to Phase II of its Door County Archives and Historical Museum facility construction project. By entering this phase, the county can go deeper into the architectural design of the buildings and put the project out to bid. One part of the project that will not be a part of it is the former Younkers building property, which the county bought in 2019 for $505,000. Master plan discussions earlier this year showed no use for the building itself. After running the numbers three times, Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says it makes more sense to tear down and build new rather than renovate.

The Door County Board of Supervisors will also discuss a zoning amendment for a parcel of land near Gordon Road in the Town of Sevastopol. If approved, it would pave the way for an expansion of the Door County Child Development Center. The board meets on Tuesday at 9 a.m.
