Small Towns Taking Steps For Growth

Small Towns Taking Steps For Growth

Sioux Falls has successfully taken steps to grow and other cities in the state are working to do the same.

Small towns in the northeast are working together to grow the area. Leaders in the region meet regularly throughout the year to brainstorm ideas and help communities of all sizes to grow, whether they have hundreds of people in town, thousands or tens of thousands.

Britton and Webster are just a couple examples of small towns where there are currently jobs and officials are recruiting people. The larger city of Aberdeen is in the same situation.

But there are challenges that come with growing rural parts of the state. Some communities are working to address housing needs. Others admit it can be hard to recruit a worker to rural areas because there aren't as many different types of careers as you'll find in a big city. And that sometimes creates a challenge for a spouse that's looking for a job in a specific career field.

Still, rural areas have perks to boast as well when trying to attract people. In tonight's eye on keloland, we'll hear from officials taking on that task. And we'll also talk with a man who recently moved from the very large Dallas Fort Worth area to the small town of Britton for a job.
