Vermillion experiences massive growth in housing options

VERMILLION, S.D. (WNAX) – Most cities in South Dakota struggle with finding adequate housing for workers they hope to attract for new and expanding businesses.

Nate Welch, Executive Director of the Vermillion Chamber and Development Corporation, says they had a massive growth in housing options just as school started this fall.

Welch says the new units put pressure on the existing rental units.

Welch says despite the big development, there is still room for more housing.

Welch says expanding the professional workforce and population are major goals of their strategic plan.
