Door County Housing Study 2019

Attainable, affordable housing for people who work and live in Door County can be a challenge to find. People who come to Door County to work seasonally – college and international students, transient workers – often find substandard facilities to live. People who choose to live in Door County year round, are frequently unable to afford, or even find housing to buy or rent.

In 2018, Door County Economic Development Corporation commissioned a countywide housing analysis to review the current housing stock, and make recommendations, for housing development needed to help attract and retain people who want to live and work in Door County.
DCEDC is in the process of engaging municipalities and organizations around the county and northeast Wisconsin to help review the analysis, the recommendations, and take the necessary steps toward building housing for the people who want to work, play and live in Door County.

DCEDC hosted a Housing Symposium February 5, 2019. Representatives from a variety of organization spoke and presented about the offerings of their organization and how they could assist with housing projects and funding in Door County. Below are the notes, and presentations from each of those speakers (in order of speaking). Our sincere thanks to each speaker, and everyone who attended the symposium for sharing their knowledge, and willingness to help.
