SHEBOYGAN — Now is your time to make your voice heard when it comes to housing options in Sheboygan.
The City of Sheboygan announced this week that it is conducting an Affordable Housing Survey through Dec. 7.
"Sheboygan has been in need of new housing for some time, according to a study completed by the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation, which has led to an increase in the development of apartments in Sheboygan – most notably downtown," the release stated. "Many of the new units being constructed are market-rate, which is more expensive than housing options Sheboygan has experienced in the past.
"As the public sees these new developments come on the market, the city has received inquiries as to the need for more affordable options," it continues. "To help guide and inform the city in future housing development needs, the City of Sheboygan Department of Planning and Development has hired MSA Professional Services to complete an Affordable Housing Study. This study will determine what types of housing units, and at what cost, the city is most in need of."
