Bismarck Will Continue To Grow

Posted:

There are no signs of Bismarck's growth slowing down anytime soon.

Tonight the public is invited to listen in on the Capitol City's growth management plan.

Since the last time the growth plan was updated in 2003, Bismarck has been experiencing unprecedented growth.

Engineers say in the next 25 years, the number of households in Bismarck will increase by more than 80 percent.

"Within that area we're estimating that today we have about 32,000 households, by the year 2040 which is our population, employment, household projection year, we would anticipate about 56,000 households at that time, so we'd have about an 80 to 85 percent increase in the number of households," William Troe said.

An area of town that will see a lot of growth, is North of Interstate 94 along State Street.

"That corridor which is already very heavily commercialized will continue to be in a way, a linear downtown, high intensity commercial uses, generally to the west also including office uses and higher intensity residential uses," Marty Shukert said.

Their studies show jobs will also continue to increase.

Right now Bismarck provides about 56,000  jobs, by 2014 that number is expected to jump to more than 107,000.
