Online Housing Study Available For Mayville Residents

(Mayville) An online survey is available for Mayville residents to provide feedback on the city’s current housing climate. Mayville is currently in the process of preparing a housing study to better understand existing and future housing needs in the community and how to best meet those needs. In November, the city hired Wisconsin-based engineering and planning group Vierbicher to help develop an economic plan for the city. The third-party firm will assist the city in evaluating the existing housing stock, current price points and housing demands. Officials with Vierbicher say they will complete their work in two stages. The first is an engagement and assessment phase where their team will analyze target industries and review commercial and labor market characteristics. Phase two will focus on implementation which could include establishing incentive programs the city can use to spur housing and economic growth. Those who complete the survey can enter to win a drawing for one of four gift cards for local Mayville businesses. Results are confidential and the survey will be open to the public until February 29th. A link to the survey is available with this news story at
