We need more rental housing including low income & senior. We relocated here from out of state 3 years ago. It was very challenging to find any rental housing. Statistically, Scott Co. vacancy rate is 1.2 percent, which is very low. Demographically, almost 75 percent of Scott County's population is age 55-64. As this group continues to age, more one level &/or Senior housing will be needed.

There needs to be more planned community housing available for elderly residents on limited budgets, especially in Western Scott county. Dakota county has a wealth of apartment options, but distance is a factor, and not everyone can conform to apartment living. Townhomes or patio homes with plenty of outdoor space for walking would be ideal.
