On Tuesday July 28th, the Door County Board of Supervisors met in regular session. The board also voted unanimously to approve Resolution 2020-61, requesting to pursue the purchase of the Historic Island Dairy property on Washington Island for $800K, and turn it into a county EMS facility.
According to a memo from Aaron LeClair, Director of Door County Emergency Services, “Emergency Services has been researching a new facility on Washington Island since 2014…numerous properties were evaluated. The Samuel’s Group (the company hired to draw up plans) along with staff recommended the purchase and remodel of the “Dairy” project. After discussion, direction was given to the Samuel’s Group to give an additional option of removing the deck and adding on a garage.”
The purchase was approved pending a zoning variance needed for driveway access and a conditional use permit request.
