South Dakota Affordable Workforce Housing Committee Will Report In The Fall

The South Dakota Legislature has a committee working on the problems of finding affordable housing, and will make a final report later in the fall, reports the Rapid City Journal.

The committee is looking specifically for ways to expand affordable housing for the workforce in South Dakota.  Water, sewer and utilities are normally the highest costs, and suggestions have included finding incentives for community developers and defining "affordable workplace housing" more clearly. The committee will not be hearing public testimony, instead they will circulate a list of meetings so far for additional comments to be made.

For more information on affordable housing in South Dakota, please visit the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archive, or the South Dakota Dashboard. Don't miss our recent analysis about housing across South Dakota and in the Black Hills.
