Destination Door County is creating a Destination Master Plan designed to help guide sustainable growth and development in the county. The plan will be built around the needs of residents, visitors and stakeholders and range from tourism to economic development to county planning.
Since May of this year, Destination Door County has been in the research phase of the process, conducting one-to-one interviews, holding focus-group meetings and receiving more than 1,200 completed online surveys from residents and stakeholders.
The Destination Master Plan will create a strategic and shared vision for the future of Door County’s economy to ensure its long-term economic sustainability while preserving the environment, quality of life for residents and quality of place. As important as the final document is, equally important is a planning process that integrates inclusive community engagement.
Residents’ input is critical to the overall effectiveness of the plan. All Door County residents are invited to participate in the conversation and share their thoughts during upcoming town-hall events when consultants will ask for feedback that will support the plan’s development. No advance registration is necessary to attend one or more of the following meetings, all set for Wednesday, Sept. 13:
• 9:30-11 am, at the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Station, 2258 Mill Road in Sister Bay
• 1:30-3 pm, as a virtual meeting at us02web.zoom.us/j/86508405647
• 5:30-7 pm, at the Sevastopol Town Hall, 4528 Hwy 57
