WHITEWOOD, S.D. – Black Hills Energy has presented the We-Do Whitewood Economic Development group with a $10,000 check for building development.
The Whitewood organization is a group promoting growth in the northern hills community.
Whitewood aims to attract a bigger workforce housing with work-live buildings, where the business is on the first level, with the living space situated on the upper floors.
The grant has already aided in building one unit — with another on the way in the Spring.
Whitewood officials say they are hopeful this could serve as a template and other communities will follow suit.
Black Hills Energy says it’s important to support growth in the communities they serve.
