You may see the impact of Destination Door County’s Community Investment Fund a little more in the City of Sturgeon Bay than other municipalities in the area. The city received another $50,000 grant from the recently established Community Investment Fund earlier this month, this time for improvements to the pavilion and public bathrooms at Sunset Park. During the first grant cycle, the city received a grant for the purchase of an aquatic weed harvester to clean up areas along their waterways. Sturgeon Bay Mayor David Ward says city staff members and common council members have worked hard to identify important projects that enhance the summer experience but benefit its residents year-round.
Ward added that it also shows the ongoing investments the city is making in its local parks, citing the recent success seen at Graham Park and Otumba Park. Local room tax dollars help support Destination Door County’s Community Investment Fund, which was launched earlier this year and has already awarded over $575,000. This is part of an ongoing series about the projects being supported by the fund. The next grant cycle ends on October 5th.
