Project Description


Short commutes, affordable housing, a growing economy, beautiful lakefront, and a vibrant arts scene help young professionals in Kenosha County find balance. Balance in their work, home life, free time, and personal finances.

As one of the fastest-growing counties in the state, Kenosha’s strong economy and job market, variety of lifestyles, excellent higher education resources (including two 4-year universities and a 2-year technical college), and incredible recreational and cultural opportunities are attracting people from well beyond our borders. The areas many parks, inland lakes, trails and walkable public Michigan lakefront offer excellent recreational opportunities for all ages and interests. And, with mainstays like our vibrant restaurants, museums, historic streetcar, arts venues, and youth and family centers make Kenosha an engaging place to be.
