Dunn County OK's 2 developments

MANNING -- The Dunn County Planning Commission approved two smaller workforce housing developments, and put a request for a 650-person crew camp on hold during its Tuesday meeting at the Dunn County Courthouse.

The commission gave David King of Killdeer the OK for a 12-person single-employer crew housing development in the Northridge Subdivision.

King also received approval for a nearly 20-building modular development to be used for workforce housing. It will be located on the JR's Industrial Park Subdivision on about 11.9 acres.

"It will be a closed camp with a chain link fence around it, and we'll build the rest to the company's needs," he told the commission.

The future of a 650-person crew camp is up in the air as the Dunn County Planning Commission members will look at a permit request next month.

Target Logistics Management had planned to approach the commission Tuesday and file a conditional use permit for the temporary workforce housing complex in an area that is zoned for rural development.

But Travis Kelly of Williston, who represented Target, requested that the matter be put on hold until July 10.

"I ask for this to be tabled because we had a mishap and not everyone could make it here tonight," Kelly said. "Not everyone who wanted to say something about this is here, so we're unable to present this tonight."
