In conjunction with the Village of Sherwood’s comprehensive plan update project, additional assistance was requested of the East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission by the Community Development Authority (CDA) to take a more detailed examination of the senior housing market and issues associated with accommodating this growing sector of the population. Both quantitative and qualitative information is used to define the market area and its potential future demands as compared to the area’s supply of housing.

In fact, few multi-unit homes of any kind exist within the community as it is comprised mainly of families.
