2019 Yankton Housing Construction Forecast

Early indications are that 2019 will be another solid year for housing construction in the Yankton community.

Community Development Director Dave Mingo says he expects that building construction this year will continue the positive trend the community has recently experienced.

Mingo says with more work ahead on Westbrook Estates and the Yankton Heights housing developments and other proposals being considered the city should be adding more housing needed in the local community.

With a figure of six to seven percent considered to be ideal Mingo says Yankton’s current vacancy rate for housing is in the three to four percent range.
