Municipalities and other groups looking to secure grant funding for projects related to the Door County Coastal Byway now have more flexibility in terms of when they can get their projects evaluated.
Ann Miller, chair of the Door County Coastal Byway Council says the Council is changing the frequency with which they review byway-related project proposals. She says the panel will now review them throughout the year instead of just once a year.
Miller says projects meeting DCCBC criteria will receive letters of endorsement from the Council.
The Door County Coastal Byway, a Wisconsin Scenic Byway, is a 66-mile stretch of Hwy 42/57 that runs from just north of Sturgeon Bay to the tip of the peninsula.
Miller says efforts continue to erect a series of informational kiosks at various spots along the route.
Miller says Sturgeon Bay Utilities has pledged to provide machinery and manpower to help with rock drilling which will be necessary to place many of the poles for the kiosks. She says more than 35 holes need to be drilled and in many locations they'll need to bore into the rock about three feet.
