New Citywide Housing Study Completed
With funding help from South Dakota Housing and local businesses, the Mobridge Area Chamber and Mobridge Economic Development Corporation commissioned a new city-wide housing study this spring. The complete study can be found here.
The study was done by Community Partners Research in Faribault, MN. Researchers visited Mobridge for a windshield survey of original Mobridge neighborhoods to gather data on the state of aging housing in our community. They also met with and discussed rental opportunities with landlords in a multi-family housing survey and did extensive data analysis on demographic and economic trends in our area.
The housing study was initiated as part of the Mobridge Home Address program, a rural housing program by non-profit Dakota Resources out of Renner, SD. Home Address leaders are visiting Mobridge this evening to facilitate a public discussion of the housing study results and potential next steps for the community. All are welcome, and free childcare and dinner will be provided.
The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Edge Event Center. If you have any questions, please contact Haden at the Chamber at 845-2500.
