Hankinson focuses on housing

Hankinson is trying to stay one step ahead of consumers by having at least one new city-owned home for sale in its portfolio like this home located at 101 Dakota Drive.

With the working premise “build it and they will come,” Hankinson continues to prioritize housing as an economic development tool.

Housing is not an industrial or commercial enterprise, but it brings new people to the community, which bolsters Main Avenue, the school district and churches, stressed Bob Wurl, president and CEO of Lincoln State Bank, and secretary/treasurer of the Hankinson Community Development Corporation.
