Percentage of rental housing


in Kohler on the increase
By Kevin Struck, Growth Management Educator UW-Extension
Sheboygan County
The Village of Kohler has followed a national trend toward an
increase in the percentage of rental
housing. A report issued in June
2015 by Harvard Universitys
Joint Center for Housing Studies
pointed out that U.S. homeownership has been falling for eight
years, down to 63.7 percent from a
peak of over 69 percent in 2004.
On average, the period 2004-2014
was the strongest 10-year stretch
of rental growth in the U.S. since
the late 1980s.
According to the 2010 U.S.
Census, 52 Kohler households
identified as renters. A recent
check of Sheboygan County property data indicates that number has
climbed to approximately 59, a 13
percent increase in five years.
Determining whether a resi-

dence is non-owner occupied is


usually as straightforward as
checking county tax parcel data to
see whether the tax bill address
matches the actual site address. If
not, the residence is usually not the
primary home of the owner. It is
more difficult, however, to further
determine whether the property is
being rented to a third party or is
simply a second home used as a
vacation or seasonal residence.
For this reason, a number of
communities, like Sioux Falls,
South Dakota and Cedar Rapids,
Iowa have begun to require permits for such properties. Closer to
home, residential rental licenses
are now required for all rental
dwelling units within the City of
Wausau, including single-family
homes that are rented out. Besides
an initial licensing process, rental
dwelling units are subject to an inspection every three years under

the Wausau ordinance.


A permitting system helps ensure accurate records and provides
contact information for absentee
owners, landlords, and renters in
case of emergencies, issues related
to street or utility work, or problems with the upkeep or use of the
property.
A suggestion to create a permitting system for rental properties in
Kohler was discussed by the Village Plan Commission a few years
ago but was not explored any further. On September 14, however,
the idea reappeared at the Village
Board meeting, when several interested residents brought the topic
up during the meeting. The residents concerns will proceed to the
November 2 Finance Committee
meeting. See page 4 article Resident hopes to revive sense of community to help keep Village safe.

Kohler Co. and Prevea Health to open


primary care medical clinic
KOHLER Kohler Co. and Prevea Health have announced plans
to open a primary care medical
clinic in Kohler to better serve the
medical needs of associates and
their families plus area residents.
The clinic, which will open in
2016, will be located at 950 Woodlake Road, near the Sports Core.
The new Kohler Prevea Health
clinic will offer comprehensive
primary care, urgent care, physical
therapy and occupational therapy
services. Kohlers existing employee clinic, which has provided
work-related and limited personal
medical care, will focus on workrelated care for Kohler associates,
including treating occupational injuries and illnesses and providing
business travel medical services.

The new clinic will offer associates and their families convenience
as well as a more personalized
level of patient health care.
We know that associates and
their families lead busy lives, and
we want to make it as convenient
as possible for them to actively
manage their health and wellbeing, said Laura Kohler, Senior
Vice President Human Resources and Stewardship. This
clinic will provide comprehensive,
patient-centered care and marks a
further expansion of Kohlers
wellness-centered associate benefits program.
Prevea has partnered with
Kohler since 2013 to manage the
existing Kohler Medical clinic and
was recently selected by Kohler

Co. as its partner for the new


clinic.
Over the past years Prevea
Health has been proud to partner
with Kohler Co. in many ways.
Today's announcement takes our
relationship one step further, said
Dr. Ashok Rai, president & CEO
of Prevea Health, Inc. We will not
only be improving the health of
local Kohler associates, but now
caring for their families and residents of the Village of Kohler and
its surrounding communities as
well.
More details will be announced
at a later date, in advance of the
clinic opening next year.

Renovations completed
at Sports Core Health
& Racquet Club
Six-month project sees updated
shower, steam and changing room
facilities
KOHLER After six months of
thoughtful work, Sports Core
Health & Racquet Club at Destination Kohler is pleased to announce
completion of recent renovation efforts and is reopened to full capacity, effective immediately.
In April, Sports Core underwent
renovations to improve the guest
experience. Already a top facility
in the area for a comprehensive
and balanced wellness experience,
Sports Core focused renovations
on updating the shower and steam
rooms, as well as the changing
room facilities.
As part of Destination Kohler,
we continually focus on how to
improve the guest experience and
what that means for each member
and guest of Sports Core, said
Jason Keller, Manager Sports
Core. We know that as a leading
facility in the area, we want to provide the best experience for our
guests and that should be in all
areas of the facility from the first
step a member takes into the building and changing facilities to
each touchpoint, class and interaction with our staff.

The changing facilities are fully


revamped for comfort and rejuvenation, and now include updated
lockers, new flooring, updated
plumbing, as well as improvements to the shower and steam
areas. We are pleased with the results of this effort and we are so
thankful for the patience our members demonstrated as we made
these necessary upgrades, added
Keller.
In celebration of the completed
project, members are invited to attend the annual anniversary party
on November 6 at 6:00 p.m.
which this year will double as a
grand opening of the new lower
level. For area residents who are
not already members, opportunities to join Sports Core are available through December 13. The
best enrollment rates of the year
are in November the earlier the
enrollment the lower the cost. Beginning November 1 at the Open
House event at Sports Core, individuals can enjoy a $100 enrollment fee. For more information

Resident hopes to revive


sense of community to help
keep Village safe
needed for people to live together
peacefully and productively. But
he feels Kohler has changed.
Leaving doors of homes and cars
unlocked has become a thing of
the past, and Gumm realized that
he has neighbors he had never
met, until the neighborhood was
forced to band together to discuss
how they were going to protect
their neighborhood from suspicious drug-related activity taking
place in a rental property.
Gumm said he was informed by
the Sheboygan County Sheriffs
Department that numerous cars
coming and going from the rental
property at all hours of the day and
night were owned by people who
have been involved in gang and

drug-related activities in other


communities. After meeting with
his fellow neighbors, the Sheriffs
Department, and Village officials,
Gumm and his neighbors compiled a list of proactive solutions
they would like to see from Village residents and officials:
1. Neighbors need to know each
other, respect each other and
watch out for each other.
2. Residents need to call the
Kohler Police to report incidents that endanger the neighborhood. Their non-emergency
number is 459-3877, and then
select #2 from their menu. For
emergencies dial 911.
3. Gather information about suspicious vehicles in your neighborhood and forward license
plate numbers and descriptions
to the Kohler Police Department as well as the County
Sheriffs Department.
4. Local police need to patrol all
neighborhoods on a regular
basis and step up patrols in
neighborhoods that have had
issues with break-ins, drugs,
and other illegal activity.
5. Village officials need to adopt
a nuisance abatement ordinance similar to Sheboygans
ordinance.
6. Village officials need to create
a database of all rental properties located in the Village of
Kohler. The registration would
be updated annually and involve an inspection of the
property (interior and exterior)
every two years, or as needed.
Gumm also calls on residents to
contact Finance Committee members Brian Post and Susan Jaberg
in support of implementing numbers 4, 5, and 6 in the above list
of suggestions, and also attend the
November 2 Finance Committee
Meeting at 5:00 p.m. at the Village Hall. Visit kohlervillage.org
and click on the Personnel Directory button for contact information for Village Board
members.

Long-time Kohler resident Darryl Gumm recently pondered


about how much the Village of
Kohler (and the world in general)
have changed from what it was 50
years ago. Respect, compassion,
community service and a sense of
community were central to our
way of life, said Gumm. In the
Village of Kohler, neighbors knew
each other and cared about each
other. Locking the doors on our
cars and houses was almost unheard of. The vast majority of the
homes in Kohler were single-family and owner occupied. There
were very few rental properties.
Gumm said he supports change
as long as it enriches lives and sustains the sense of community

Focused on enhancing the guest

increases co-ed relaxation space and
launches seasonal experiences
Long established as an industry
leader in health, wellness and hydrotherapy experiences, Kohler
Waters Spa is never one to rest on
its laurels. Focused on continuously improving the Five-Star
guest experience at Kohler Waters
Spa at Destination Kohler, the
team has updated the 25,000
square-foot facility to include
more co-ed relaxation spaces to accommodate spa-goers who desire
more common areas where guests
can spend time together before and
after services. These updates coincide with the spa also launching

new seasonal services for the fall


and winter.
Time Together Is Time Well
Spent
We continue to see more groups
and couples coming in who wish
to spend time with each other, in
addition to having time alone to
enjoy spa services, said Director
Kohler Waters Spas Garrett Mersberger. When guests and groups
travel together, they want to spend
time catching up, laughing and enjoying each others company.
While the location and activities
are important when planning a get-

away, together time is equally as


important. Mersberger references
couples traveling together, girls
and guys getaways, and bachelorette and wedding parties who all
look for locations where they can
congregate and socialize.
The first floor of Kohler Waters
Spa now includes two revamped
areas to accommodate guests who
wish to relax before and after services. One area, on the west side of
the first floor, includes new lounge
chairs, chromotherapy lights and
curtains for privacy. The other

Students participate in Testing the Waters program


The students listed will participate in this years water testing
program at Kohler High School.
This science enrichment program
allows students to participate in a
community service project and
also encourages them to use some
of their biology and chemistry
skills. The students will be actively involved in collecting, analyzing, and interpreting biology
and chemistry data related to the
water quality of the Sheboygan
River. The Kohler group is responsible for testing the river near

Black Wolf Run Golf Course.


Some of the tests include dissolved
oxygen, biological oxygen demand, pH, temperature, total phosphates, nitrates, turbidity, total
solids, fecal coliform, and
macroinvertebrates. The water test
results are sent to the Great Lakes
Area of Concern Program, the
UW-Sheboygan Water Quality Extension, and to the Department of
Natural Resources. Other Sheboygan County schools test different
parts of the river, and all of the results are shared at a forum in the

spring. Along with presenting the


data, students suggest explanations
for their findings, and work together to explore possible action
plans that might have a positive
impact on the areas land conservation and the environment. Students attend sessions where water
quality experts provide needed information. Students involved in
the program are currently taking
honors physics, advanced biology,
or honors chemistry. Ms. Krejcarek is the science teacher leading
this group.

By Duane DuMez
Thank you to all the sponsors
who contributed to the 5th grade
trip to the outdoor education program at Trees for Tomorrow. Selected fifth graders took part in
many different educational opportunities including: outdoor survival
skills, logging days activities, bog
study, and one of their favorites,
Orienteering skills which had them

dropped off in the Nicolet National


Forest with only a compass and the
instructions to find the bus in a
couple of hours. These activities
with the additional classes on deer,
bear, wolves and birds of prey, allowed them to experience things
that a normal classroom cannot.
Thanks again for all the sponsors
who generously gave to this wonderful program.

along the curb in a three-foot (3) wide row. No
grass clippings, sticks, or other garden debris is

of November we may only be able to get through
the Village once a week and cannot make exceptions since this will affect the collection schedule.

KHS Beauty and The Beast Opens November 5th
By Peggy Hoffmann
Disney has always been known
for wonderful animated movies.
But after the critical raves for their
film Beauty and the Beast, first
released in 1991, Disney decided
to turn the movie into a Broadway
musical. Filled with fantastic
characters and an engaging story,
the musical features all the favorite songs from the movie,
along with a few new tunes. And
now, Kohler High thespians will
bring the show to the Kohler Memorial Theatre Stage.
The show opens on Thursday,
November 5th at 7 pm and two
more evening shows follow on
Friday and Saturday at the same
time. The show closes with a Sunday matinee at 2 pm. Tickets are
available in the Kohler High office and are $7.00 in advance and
$9.00 at the door. Tickets are good
for any of the four shows. Box office opens a half hour before the
show.
