I would like to see the city get better at getting road construction done quicker. When roads get redone they often take all summer and most of the fall to complete even if it's only a mile long road. Sheboygan is a diverse active city, with a thriving culture, amazing places to eat, and a gorgeous lakefront!

I was born here and remember so many things that made Sheboygan friendly and unique. But what has happened is the city is trying to make this town more of a resort. Building to many high priced apartment buildings and not considering the generation that has grown up here and now face a big city price to live here. Fancy high priced luxury apartments will soon turn this town into more homeless people on the streets. The roads are the worse they are not taken care of. This town was once the perfect place to raise a family but now it is leaning towards high priced rentals and more singles.
Sheboygan is small and sometimes you feel bored with it. However, there are so many wonderful things about the city that makes it enjoyable. From the lakeside sights to the surrounding areas, there are lots of places and sights to see. My personal favorite places are the array of coffee shops in the town.
