A community that wants to live, work, and play in an intergenerational way was one of the major themes presented in the final report from the Discuss Door County project. “They Is Us: Voices from a Community Conversation about Growing Older in Door County, Wisconsin” is the culmination of over a year of discussions from around the peninsula focusing on where it currently is and where it can go in the future. Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy says he has been encouraged by local businesses and organizations wanting to put the report into action
More than 500 full-time and seasonal residents participated in forty-five neighborhood conversation over the course of a year, which culminated in a county-wide assembly last fall, and last Tuesday’s community statement release. You can read the full report online with this story or by picking up your own copy at the Door County Community Foundation office in Sturgeon Bay.
