The village of Egg Harbor will host two public informational meetings Tuesday to showcase its library and community center project. Named the Donald and Carol Kress Pavilion, the $6.5 million fully-furnished building is expected to host different social events in addition to being the home of the Egg Harbor Historical Society and its branch of the Door County Library. After brief presentations about what will be offered at the center and what libraries of the 21st century look like, Village Administrator Ryan Heise says they are opening the floor for discussion to its residents.
The pair of discussions, facilitated by the UW-Extension office, will take place at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m inside the Bertschinger Center. Egg Harbor transferred the project to a friends group after a group of residents sued the village for violating a 2008 ordinance forbidding it from spending more than $1 million on a project. The project has raised over $5 million in private donations.
