The new Door County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC) executive director will be looking to address the affordable housing issue facing the area when he takes his new position. Jim Schuessler, who will take over the organization on July 16, says he hopes to implement a similar plan used by his last employer, Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation, which added over 1,000 new units of housing.
Schuessler, an Oconto County native, is replacing Caleb Frostman who left the DCEDC in April to run for the 1st District Senate seat. He was announced as the new executive director last week and says he is in the market for housing for himself and wife, Karla, as they relocate to Door County from Sheboygan.
