Affordable housing in Sister Bay becoming a reality

Addressing a significant concern for northern Door County, you could soon see more affordable housing options in Sister Bay. Earlier this year, the Door County Housing Partnership purchased eight lots in the Stony Ridge plat from the village at an investment of $10,000 each. Through its community land trust model, the purchase will help keep the future homes built on the lots affordable for income-qualified purchasers for years to come. In an area where housing is crucial for attracting year-round residents to work in the community, Door County Housing Trust President Jim Honig says it is a game changer.

Honig hopes homes can be built on the lots in the coming years. With the support of community partners like Door County Habitat for Humanity, the Door County Housing Partnership has helped build several homes in the two years, many of which are located in Sturgeon Bay.
