Bismarck-Mandan Community Is Growing

Posted:

There's no doubt BIsmarck and Mandan's population is on the rise, but is the Bakken all to blame for the increase in people living here?

Brian Ritter with the Bismarck-Mandan Development Association says the growth has been happening for the last decade, so the Bakken isn't the only reason more people are moving to the area.

Since 2002 nearly 14,000 jobs have been added, and there's about 1,000 new businesses.

<<"I think what that shows us and what it provides us is a perspective and it shows us that growth is not a recent phenomenon in Bismarck and Mandan, that it's been occurring for these last ten years, again whether it's due to whatever we have going on within Bismarck and Mandan themselves or whether it's due from influence from the Bakken, it shows that this is not something over night, or some flash in the pan if you will, this is strong, steady, sustained growth that I think you'll see go on like this well into the future," Brian Ritter said.>>

Since 2002 the Bismarck and Mandan population has increased nearly 15,000 people, to just under 114,000.
