The Town of Liberty Grove has voted to purchase 5.1 acres of land adjacent to the town hall on Old Stage Road from owner Steve Carmody for $39,900.
Town Chair John Lowry said the parcel makes sense for multiple items in the town’s long-term plans. The town now owns nearly 50 acres surrounding the town hall between Waters End and Hill Road that Lowry hopes will be an attractive area for potential attainable-housing development. He also said the town is considering using a portion of the new parcel for a town compost site similar to Baileys Harbor’s Green Site.
The Door County Economic Development Corporation is planning a tour of sites with potential developers later this fall. Lowry hopes to include the new site, as well as the former Val-A property the town bought last year.
