Heitkamp Visits Surrey

Posted: Updated:

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp toured the city of Surrey today and addressed the challenges facing growing North Dakota communities in a meeting with city administrators and officials. Since 2009, the number of homes in the city has increased by about 66 percent.

“I think that being able to accommodate new families, offering them an alternative to maybe bigger city life like Minot, and being able to build a community around the new growth is really the challenge,” says Heitkamp.

It's estimated that the state of North Dakota will need 30 percent more housing units by 2025.
