More InformationShow full item record
When one visits a small town or city in the Midwest, they will probably notice a sense of pride in the community. However, when rapid change, whether it long or short term, impacts the community, it can leave the residents of the town feeling disconnected to their familiar surroundings. Multiple small cities and towns in Western North Dakota, including Williston, Killdeer and Dickinson, along with many others, have experienced rapid growth and change due to recent oil activity. By examining the city of Dickinson and addressing the recent housing conflicts, higher traffic volumes and city expansion, I will help to maintain the long term viability of the town, setting an example for these other small cities.
