Civic Center Hosts Bakken Construction Summit

Posted: Updated:

It's no secret that construction companies want to Build up the Bakken. That was the main message at the Bakken Construction Summit. The construction and real estate industries connected with service providers and stakeholders to discuss development in the Williston Basin.

Williston has plans for more commercial developments, but the city planner says the city is choosing its developments carefully.

"We don't want to end up as a result of this development with an old town and a new town. Or a nice town and a not so nice town. It's a community that's been here for 126 years. We've been through two oil booms, already one in the 1950's and the late 1970's. And it's a town that wants to stay together," says Williston principal planner Donald Kress.

Companies spent the rest of the day working in small groups to discuss housing development, along with project planning for commercial interests.
