DCEDC, in partnership with municipalities, private companies, and local foundations, is leading a comprehensive countywide housing study. DCEDC contracted with consulting firm AECOM, to focus on understanding and developing ideas for housing in Door County: Attainable (economically diverse), workforce (including seasonal), and senior housing.
We all know Door County has a chronic housing shortage across multiple property types, price points, and geographic locations. New employees struggle to secure a place to live, prospective hires abandon their Door County job search due to lack of housing options, and our county’s population continues to age.
The goal of this study is to put that knowledge into hard numbers, and provide ideas to help Door County municipalities work with businesses, residents and potential development on our housing shortage. The consultants from AECOM will share a brief presentation on the study and take questions and input from members of the public. Depending on group size, participants may be requested to limit their statements to three minutes each to allow as many citizens as possible to share their thoughts that will help guide the direction of the study and areas of focus. There will be limited refreshments served.
Please join us to be a part of the change you wish to see in Door County!
