Sturgeon Bay making progress on housing

There is still room for improvement, but City Administrator Josh Van Lieshout hopes Sturgeon Bay is making it easier to find somewhere to live. 


Housing has been a significant focus for the city since it joined the Door County Economic Development Corporation and other municipalities in a housing study in 2019. The study pointed to a shortage of affordable housing for renting and buying due to several factors. Van Lieshout is proud of what the Sturgeon Bay Common Council has done to address the issue, and he is happy the city is working with developers to create a wide range of options. Along with working with organizations like Door County Habitat for Humanity and the Door County Housing Partnership, Van Lieshout hopes a simple change to at least the ordinance could spur some growth in the single-family housing segment.

Several big housing projects broke ground in 2022 in Sturgeon Bay, including a pair of two-story, eight-unit buildings on the site of the former Sunset School.
