This committee will be responsible for the economic aspects. Development, existing and new business and housing will be the immediate focus. This committee takes a back seat, data gathering in the background. Key piece of information is housing study, which should be done August/September. Immediate pieces of action:
- Find out where the needs are at- multi-family, low-income housing. Focusing on downtown businesses- inventory of businesses and what’s available for buildings. Inventory of residential units.
- Obvious areas of development are adjacent to the community, get a handle on the infrastructure.
- Trails to connect the parks, loop around the city to the golf course. Sidewalk installation. Already starting to move forward there on Dows.
Helps the committee and community make good decisions. We are currently applying to work with Dakota Resources’ Home Address program.
