The city of Sturgeon Bay and Door County Medical Center will work together to upgrade sidewalks near the hospital’s campus. During his presentation of the city’s five-year capital plan and roadway improvements, city engineer Chad Shefchik told the Board of Public Works that Door County Medical Center wanted to incorporate new sidewalks into its plan to develop walking trails on its campus. Shefchik said the city would work to tie in the new sidewalks with the existing network.
The new sidewalks would be constructed along South 18th Ave., Rhode Island Street, and South 16th Place, with the bulk of the project being picked up by the hospital. Shefchik said the idea to build the sidewalks came from the Door County Medical Center’s health and wellness committee to improve the fitness opportunities on its campus.
