Door County is a unique place. Both a rural community of 30,000 and a tourist destination for millions, it has deep divides between “haves” and “have nots.” Door County also can tend to avoid dealing with difficult issues, whether because of small-town dynamics or a focus on tourism promotion. Door County Knock exists to address these dynamics, to provide a solid, shared source of truth for Door County and to improve public discourse.
