Making way for the new

The community of Faulkton, S.D., took a look at its housing situation and realized that the first move wasn’t figuring out where to build—it was making room by getting some of the most dilapidated housing out of the way. Faulkton, which worked on its housing needs by participating in Dakota Resources’ Home Address program, has taken down six dilapidated homes in the past two years. The one pictured above was removed in December 2015. After a housing survey was completed and publicized, community awareness helped get the tear-down program going, according to Trevor Cramer, Faulkton Area Development executive director. Some more could be torn down, but those homes’ owners haven’t been willing to give permission for that yet. Photo by Faulk County Record
