Greetings from Trump's America, where Juneau County officials look to restore the 'missing middle'


Study: Juneau County needs more housing options.  (Juneau County Star-Times, 2/21/2018)
American Institute of Certified Planners Executive Director Dennis Lawrence and Juneau County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Terry Whipple gave a presentation on the results of their 2018 housing study. 
Whipple said although “there are many parts to a vibrant economy,” the county is “in a race to draw people in.” According to Whipple, Juneau County cannot rely on new births alone to continue to grow, but must also bring in outside populations. The county has an undersupply of people within certain age groups. 
Lawrence called the category of individuals in their 20s the “missing middle.” The problem is not only a lack of young people coming in to the county, but also local young people leaving. “Juneau County has lost a lot of those folks,” Lawrence said.

Juneau County has a below average number of residents under 5 years of age and above average number of residents 65 and older.

I think it's going to take a lot more than new housing.
