As housing supply remains critically low throughout Wayne County, the City of Wooster has been working to encourage new projects to support the creation of market-rate apartments, new single-family homes, and new workforce / affordable housing options. The City of Wooster recently made a presentation to the Wayne County Housing Coalition on several exciting new projects underway to bring new housing options for Wooster's current and future residents. New apartment housing will make it easier for new Wooster workers to join our community as residents, while new single-family and senior housing projects will open up opportunities for first-time homebuyers as existing homeowners move-up or downsize. Workforce housing will provide immediately-affordable apartment opportunities for income-qualified working families.
