Housing is top priority

AEDC spec house in early stages of construction.Housing has moved to the top of the priority list for Albion and other Boone County communities.

For businesses hoping to recruit new employees to the area, finding suitable housing can be a challenge.

In some cases, potential new residents have not relocated to the Boone County area because they could not find housing they considered suitable in their price range.

“There is a clear need for quality affordable housing,” said Doug Young, president of the Albion Economic Development Corp. (AEDC). “This is based both on surveys conducted over the past 10 years and first-hand reports from employers.”
