Construction of Door County’s new senior community center and central emergency management services building is ahead of schedule. The former highway shop is now completely enclosed as crews begin drywalling and other projects inside of the building. Favorable site conditions and the hard work of their contractor helped the project move along. Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says when you walk through the building, it is hard to believe it used to be the highway shop.
Pabich says partial occupancy of the building, which is most likely to occur in the senior center, is most likely to occur in early December. The county hopes its other new EMS site, which is part of the new Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department station in Brussels, will open in spring after wet weather delayed that project.
