During a recent retreat held for area young professionals, the SCEDC became keenly aware of their desire for market-rate apartments in Downtown Sheboygan. The young professionals were so passionate about the prospect of market-rate downtown housing that they formed their own committee and distributed a survey to prove there was a market. Below are the results of that survey completed by over 200 individuals county-wide.
