Cost of Community Service Study

Click to view How Open Space Helps Brochure (344 kb).

A Cost of Community Service Study was conducted for Door County in 2004 by an independent consultant, Mary Edwards—PhD in Urban and Regional Planning. 

The Door County Cost of Community Services Study found that:

  • residential land use remains the highest demander of public services
     

  • open and agricultural land uses place the lowest cost burden upon their communities

A Cost of Community Service Study compares the costs a community incurs servicing certain categories of land use to the revenues generated to that community in the form of taxes, licenses, permits and other fees.

The Door County Study examined two townships: Nasewaupee—selected because of its rural nature, and Gibraltar—selected because it represents an area impacted by tourism and residential development.

This study was sponsored by the Door County Environmental Council and the Door County Land Trust.
