Survey says . . . results are in
Residents value small community atmosphere and green space
By Kevin Struck,
University of Wisconsin-Extension
The Village of Kohler recently asked
Sheboygan County UW-Extension to create
and distribute a citizen opinion survey to
find out how residents feel about a variety
of local issues. Just under 41 percent of the
surveys, which were mailed to every house-
hold, were returned. This is an excellent
response rate for a community survey. The
results have now been tabulated. This is the
first of a three-part article summarizing the
responses to each of the questions on the
survey. Residents who wish to see the com-
plete results can obtain a copy of the tabu-
lated survey from the Village Clerk’s office.
The first question on the survey was sim-
ple but important. Why do you choose to
live in the Village of Kohler? Out of the 18
potential choices, the top four responses
were “Village appearance,” “Small commu-
nity atmosphere,” “Safety/feeling of securi-
ty,” and “Quietness/serenity.” The fewest
responses were for “Senior activities” and
“Availability of affordable land.”
A follow-up question with the same 18
choices asked residents to Please rate the
following as they relate to your quality of
life in Kohler. The responses to this ques-
tion echoed the results for Question 1.
Question 3 asked What one thing or
value in the Village of Kohler should be
preserved for future generations? This was
an open-ended question with a variety of
written responses. Of the approximately
320 responses, the major themes were
“Small town atmosphere,” and “Green
space.”
The next two questions focused on the
potential types of future development. If
you could control the future, which one
term would you select to describe the
Village of Kohler in 20 years? Choices and
their response rates were “Business commu-
nity” (0 percent); “Industrial community”
(0.5 percent); “Tourism/destination commu-
nity” (5.8 percent); “Residential communi-
ty” (33 percent); and “An appropriate mix
of all of the above” (57.4 percent).
Which of the following do you prefer for
the Village of Kohler? “Residential
growth” was preferred (26 percent), fol-
lowed by “Business growth that serves pri-
marily local residents” (22 percent);
“Business growth that attracts out of town
visitors/tourists” (16.9 percent); “Office
park” (12.1 percent); “No growth” (9.8 per-
cent); “Light industrial” (7 percent);
“Other” (4 percent); and, lastly, “Heavy
industrial” (2.2 percent).
Residents were then asked whether they
agreed with the speed of population, resi-
dential, business, and job growth in the
Village over the previous two years. Please
rate the speed of growth in the following
categories in the Village of Kohler. “Right
amount” was by far the highest response in
the population growth category (55.4 per-
cent), followed by “Somewhat too slow”
(11.8 percent.) Regarding residential
growth, “Right amount” was again first
(47.1 percent), followed by “Somewhat too
fast” (21.2 percent). Business growth was
also considered to be the “Right amount”
(56.5 percent), with the second response
being “Somewhat too slow” (20.4 percent).
Finally, most respondents answered “Don’t
know” (42.7 percent) regarding job growth,
while 32 percent thought it had been the
“Right amount.”
Aseries of questions about housing were
then asked, starting with If the Village of
Kohler should continue to grow, what
kinds of residential growth would you pre-
fer to be allowed? Eleven choices were
offered. “Single-family residential” came in
first (28.5 percent), followed by “Housing
for senior citizens” (16.2 percent), and
“Condominiums” (11 percent). The least
support was offered for “Multi-family
apartment” (1.6 percent), “Large-scale con-
dominiums/resort” (1.6 percent), and
“Mobile home park for retirees” (0.2 per-
cent).
According to Census data, a large por-
tion of America’s population is approaching
retirement; therefore a question related to
senior housing was asked. As the popula-
tion ages and lifestyles change, which one
of the following should the Village of
Kohler pursue to address senior citizen
housing needs? A majority of respondents
(60.6 percent) checked “Plan to provide for
senior citizen housing within the Village of
Kohler.” However, over one-quarter (27
percent) felt the Village should “Do noth-
ing.” No other response was higher than 5
percent.
Residents were then asked about rental
property conversions in the Village.
Recently, a number of single-family resi-
dences within the village have been con-
verted to rental properties. If this trend
continues, would you be concerned? 78.5
percent answered “Yes.” When asked to
write what their concerns were, most peo-
ple cited the upkeep of the property.
Perhaps anticipating the response in the
previous question, residents were asked to
“Strongly agree,” “Agree,” “Disagree,” or
“Strongly disagree” with this statement: In
order to maintain the aesthetics/appear-
ance of the village, a property mainte-
nance ordinance is needed. 44.1 percent
agreed and 32 percent strongly agreed. A
total of only 15.4 disagreed or strongly dis-
agreed. 6.3 percent had no opinion, and 2.2
percent did not respond.
Continuing on this theme, the next ques-
tion asked What is the one best thing
Kohler village government can do to pro-
tect values/home worth? The over 300
responses to this open-ended question typi-
cally included “Maintain the high standard
that exists now,” “Create an environment
where residents have incentives to invest in
their property,” and “Limit rental proper-
ties.”
The next issue of The Kohler Villager
will summarize survey questions related to
transportation, utilities, and community
facilities/services.
Open green space,such as this parcel on the Village’s west side, is one of the amenities valued by Kohler residents

Whether you are looking for a fun get-
away for the weekend or just want to try
out a new restaurant, look no
further than the Wisconsin
Department of Tourism Web-
site, http://www.travelwis-
consin.com/. The Wisconsin
Department of Tourism Web-
site offers a vast amount of
information for those looking
to get out and explore Wis-
consin.
Wisconsin has plenty of
destinations and events to
choose from. Parents looking for some-
thing to do with their children this sum-
mer can check out the children's page
where you can find a listing of zoos,
children museums, water parks, and ac-
tivities like horseback riding, mountain
biking and tubing.
If you are like me and think there is
nothing better than a great Wisconsin
festival, check out the weekend events
page. This page lists all the summer
festivals for that weekend throughout
Wisconsin. You will be amazed by the
number of activities to choose from.
Every weekend you will have the option
of enjoying a free music festival or a de-
licious food festival!
The Department of Tourism Website
lets you check out recreational activities
that are available throughout the year.
You can search by either the activity
you are interested in or by location.
There are nearly 40 activities listed such
as scenic drives, birding, hiking trials,
orchards and wineries. Clearly there is
something for everyone!
While you are planning your day
trip, be sure to look up a restaurant in
the area where you can experience one

A big congratulations and thank you
to everyone who helped make last week's
Farm Technology Days in She-
boygan County a success! The
event helped to showcase the
tradition, pride and progress in
agriculture and farming. My
wife Heather and I had the
pleasure of attending the show
and we enjoyed visiting with
our friends and learning more
about the important and unique
role that agriculture plays in our area and
state economy. Special thanks goes to
the Hesselink Family and staff for their
willingness to open their farmstead to
everyone and for their positive "can do"
spirit.
On Wednesday, July 12th, I was
pleased to receive the 2005-2006 "Friend
of Agriculture" award from the Wiscon-
sin Farm Bureau Federation. The award
was presented due to my positive, pro-
agriculture leadership and voting record
as a member of the State Senate. While
the award and recognition are appreciat-
ed, they are unnecessary. Agriculture is
an important part of our area economy
and my support for farming is natural
due the large number of farm families
and other farm related employees that I
have the honor of representing.
Over the past legislative session, I en-
joyed working on various agricultural
legislative issues including: eminent do-
main protection, livestock investment tax
credit, health savings accounts, truck
weight limits, second generation cooper-

rants or try something traditional like a Fri-
day Night Fish Fry. Either way, there are
plenty of options to suit any-
one's taste.
If you are planning an
overnight trip in Wisconsin, one
of the best features to use on the
Department of Tourism Website
is the Wisconsin trip planner.
This feature allows you to gener-
ate a trip plan that can be cus-
tomized to your needs. The trip
planner page lets you search
places to stay, (bed and break-
fasts, resorts, vacation rentals, camp-
grounds, cabins and cottages) places to go,
events and recreation and activities.
The trip planner page also includes vaca-
tion packages and deals. So whether you
are looking for a family vacation to a water
park, a guys golfing trip or a girlfriend get-
away, the trip planner has many affordable
options for you to choose from that won't
break the bank.
The tourism Website also offers free
Wisconsin travel guides and maps. Simply
go to the Website and check the free publi-
cations you wish to receive, such as a golf
guide, biking guide, bed and breakfast
guide or state parks guide, just to name a
few. Maps can be requested and mailed to
you or you can print maps off the Website.
I hope you find the Wisconsin Depart-
ment of Tourism Website as useful as I do.
Even if you already have your summer
booked up this year don't forget to look on
the Website for activities and trips all year
round. There is always something fun hap-
pening in Wisconsin!
atives, wildlife abatement program, and
biodiesel definition and labeling.
I have also enjoyed
working with the Farm Bureau
staff, supporting the organiza-
tion’s positions on bills and ad-
ministrative rules in commit-
tee, attending Farm Bureau
meetings, and being a Farm
Bureau member.
Agriculture is an impor-
tant part of our state and local
economies and we need to keep it strong.
Sheboygan County and the Hesselink
Family did a outstanding job hosting
Farm Technology Days. As the State
Senator for the area, I was pleased to pro-
vide leadership and work to promote and
pass a positive "pro-agriculture" legisla-
tive agenda during the 2005-06 legisla-
tive session.

Joe Leibham
State Senator
Van Akkeren will face Republican challenger for the
26th District Assembly Office
Sheboygan Republican Job Hou-Seye
has announced he will challenge Sheboygan
Democrat Terry Van Akkeren for the 26th
District Assembly seat in the November 7,
2006 election.
Hou-Seye said in 2004, he marched in
three parades with U.S. Senate Candidate
Tim Michels, attended eight of his Dinner
Receptions, contributed financially to his
campaign, and collected 250 of the 2,000
nominations required to place him on the
Statewide Ballot. “With all of the focus on
the Michels and Bush Campaigns, suddenly
a few of us realized, 2 years ago . . . that no
one was running on the Republican ticket
for the 26th District Assembly Office,”
Hou-Seye said. “At that time, I vowed that
if nobody was running on the Republican
Party ticket for the 26th District Assembly
Seat in 2006, then I would run for that posi-
tion.”
Some of the legislation
Hou-Seye said he will
support include:
The Marriage Amend-
ment defining marriage
as a union between one
man and one woman.
Concealed carry legis-
lation, which Hou-Seye
said will allow law-
abiding citizens to ob-
tain a permit to carry a
handgun for personal
protection.
Taxpayer's Bill Of Rights (TABOR),
which, Hous-seye said, “can best be de-
fined as ‘index-controlled tax spending,’
wherein the local, county, and state agen-
cies of government cannot increase tax
spending, from year-to-year, by any per-
centage greater than the average workers
percentage increase in wages, and must
return tax money, to the taxpayers, if the
slush fund reaches 15%.”
Pro-Life legislation.
Legislation requiring automobiles to be
insured prior to registration.
“The Citizens of Sheboygan and Kohler
are ready for an Assembly Candidate who
will Vote Strong on Family Value Issues,
and they can Trust that I am the Strongest
Candidate,” Hou-Seye said.
Job Hou-Seye is employed by CPS,
Sentry Insurance, serves as deacon at
Southside Alliance Church, is National
Benefits Chairman, NASA Powerlifting
and State Chairman, Wisconsin Powerlift-
ing.
Hou-Seye can be e-mailed at:
statechairman@wisconsinpowerlifting.com
or aandz.insurance@sbcglobal.net
On June 9, as it ap-
peared to Hou-Seye that no
one else had made a firm
committment to run as a
Republican Candidate for
the 26th District Assembly
Seat, he began to circulate
nomination papers, and on
July 11th, filed 285 nomi-
nations, 260 of which were
certified. According to the
State Elections Board, in-
cumbent Terry Van
Akkeren(D) had 224 nominations certified.
Hou-Seye stated, “Since the time Joe
Leibham left the Assembly to win his State
Senate Seat four years ago, the 26th Dis-
trict, which is comprised of the City of She-
boygan and the Village of Kohler, has not
had an Assemblyman who will Vote Strong
on Family Value Issues.”

KOHLER PUBLIC LIBRARY
BOOK CLUB:
Date: August 21, 2006
Book: To Be Determined. Please contact
the library for the next title.
Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Kohler Public Library
ROMANCE READERS
Kohler Public Library recently learned of
a website that has romance author inter-
views, reviews, and forth coming romance
books. The online magazine is one month
behind the print version of the magazine.
We would appreciate it if you would tell
us when you see a romance title that
sounds like it would be good for the li-
brary to order. The website is:
romantictimes.com .
BOOK PAGES: AMERICA’S BOOK
REVIEW
Kohler Public Library has a two month
trial of a literary reviews newsprint maga-
zine that is free for you to take when you
visit the library. It is a magazine that has
author interviews and reviews of current
books. Please feel free to take a copy
with you. We would appreciate your feed-
back to see if this is a subscription worth
keeping.
DOGWALKERS/SITTERS
The library hates to sound paranoid but
we will keep dog walking and sitting serv-
ice information behind the desk to give to
people as they ask. It makes the library
extremely nervous having names, ages,
addresses and phone numbers of young
people on display. I am sorry if this in-
conveniences any young entrepreneur but
we have to do what we feel is prudent in
this day and age.
MOVIE KNOWLEDGE
Kohler Public Library voluntarily sub-
scribes to the movie rating system em-
ployed at theaters. Unfortunately, labels
seem to be becoming far more lax. Par-
ents please be aware that there is an on-
line movie rating service that does alert
you to the contents of a movie and in-
cludes the amount and type of swearing in
the movie. It is very detailed so you will
probably be able to make a decision on
the appropriateness of the movie for your
child or even for you. The site is:
www.kids-in-mind.com.
SCHOOL REGISTRATION
Kohler Public Library has a separate com-
puter system from the school. For that
reason we need to have parent permission
slips on file for the public library comput-
ers if you want your child to use them
after school or on Sunday. Please stop
into the library to complete the form.
This form also includes a permission slip
for the types of movies (ratings) you want
your child to check out. We will put notes
on your child’s record which we will
check when he/she comes to the library.
That is why we ask for your child’s li-
brary card when he/she wants to use com-
puters or check out movies.
Book Discussion will resume in the fall.
SUMMER 2006
TUESDAY afternoons—times will vary
Back by popular demand we will have
