Building 5,000 Homes in 24 Months – Bakken Housing Summit Announced
WILLISTON, N.D., Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The Bakken Housing Summit will be held May 16 and 17, 2012 in Williston, North Dakota. The challenge is to build 5,000 homes in Western North Dakota in the next 24 months.
Billions of Investments at Risk Over Housing
The Williston Basin extends throughout Western North Dakota and presents one of the largest economic opportunities in the country. The energy industry is spending more than $4 billion in 18 months on capital investments including oil exploration, gas plants, pipeline infrastructure, and rail facilities.
In November, 2011, North Dakota had an unemployment rate of 2.9% with 19,627 job openings. The lack of housing thwarts the ability to hire workers and is threatening the continued growth and development of the Bakken shale play.
Educating and Connecting Key Stakeholders and Solution Providers
Information will be provided at the summit about the economic environment, infrastructure, construction environment, and financial perspectives.
Key stakeholders will gather at the summit to share information, discuss ideas, and develop plans to meet the challenge. Those expected or invited to attend include:
- State and Local Leaders

- Municipal Leaders
- Land Owners
- Home Builders
- Local and National Lenders
