“With very limited options for rental housing within Worthington, being able to keep up with the demand of a growing community has been nearly impossible.
“‘We have had an issue with housing for all the 10 years I’ve been mayor,’ Worthington Mayor Alan Oberloh said. ‘It seems that it is extremely difficult to get private development to construct multi-family housing.
“‘People who build single-family homes in this area, it is extremely difficult to get them interested in building spec houses,’ Oberloh continued. ‘We have communities around us, that with private development, build complete housing developments. I don’t know why, but I would guess a lot of it has to do with the median income.’
“Worthington hovers around a zero percent vacancy rate on the multi-family units, making it extremely difficult on people moving into the community,” via Worthington Daily Globe.
