Rugby Housing Lots

Rugby Housing Lots

Posted: Updated:

The shortage of housing throughout the Bakken is traveling farther east through the state.

To keep up with the growing of population of Rugby, the city decided to add more housing.

About 20 acres of land has been sectioned off for housing lots.

In all 52 lots will be cleared from this large patch of land.

One section will be designated for apartments, another for condominiums, while the rest of the lots will be for houses.

Due to the rain from the springs, leveling of the land had been delayed and the city is waiting for the ground to dry.

Mayor of Rugby Dave Cichos Chick-us hopes the city can have the first layer of the streets, with water and sewer complete by sometime this fall.

By July of 2014 lay the second layer of blacktop.

Cichos expects housing construction on individual lots could begin in the spring.

With job openings in the city needing to filled, Cichos knows the sooner more houses are built, the better.

(Dave Cichos, Mayor, Rugby) "Rugby Manufacturing is looking for help right now, the hospital is looking for help. Right now we don't have any housing at all available in Rugby. There is very few apartments available for rent and so the housing is very important that we get the project done."

The population of Rugby is around 2,900 people.

With the additions of the new housing, Cichos Chick-us says the population should grow about 10%.
