BISMARCK — A home-building company aiming to supply housing for western North Dakota's booming Bakken oil patch — where housing is lacking —wants to set up shop on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, where jobs are scarce.
Learning from the trials and tribulations of communities north of Interstate 94, a number of southwestern North Dakota cities are preparing for a future that could bring more people spilling over from the Bakken oil play.
North Dakota is facing a housing crisis, and not just in the Oil Patch. With cities such as Grand Forks and Rugby also experiencing housing woes, officials are brainstorming ways to create affordable housing across the state.
Further discussions between the Dickinson Park Board and developer Meyer Real Estate Group will hopefully yield a consensus on the creation of a park, which stands in the way of the developer moving forward with a 221-lot housing development in east Dickinson.
With the issuance of a temporary use permit from the Dickinson City Commission on Tuesday, a group of seven Dickinson churches hope to study and understand Dickinson’s homelessness problem as they provide a warm place for displaced individuals to sleep.
