It is no secret that housing is a concern in the Wall community, ranging from seasonal housing to the availability of properties for high-end housing. A goal of the Wall Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors was that our passion, commitment, hard work, and expertise would result in quality affordable housing for Wall residents that would change lives and improve neighborhoods.
In 2016, the City of Wall participated in a comprehensive housing study. This study helped to identify specific housing needs and offered potential solutions. In February 2018, the City and WEDC took a big step toward housing development by purchasing the property at 402 Glenn Street. The structure was demolished, and the lot cleared.
After months of searching for a developer, the lot was sold for affordable housing development. The developer’s plan is to build three Governors Homes.
If you move to Wall on or after January 1, 2020 to work full-time for a Wall employer, you maybe eligible for New Relocation Program.
The workforce has been an enormous challenge. The number of open jobs in Wall has been higher than the number of people looking for work. Wall Economic Development Corporation created a New Relocation Program. The program offers reimbursement up to $750.00 per household in relocating cost for individuals moving to Wall, SD. Furthermore, Wall Economic Development partnered with the City of Wall and West River Electric Asst., who will waive utility deposits for those who qualify for this program.
“Everyone is influenced by an incentive. Everyone has motivation. That’s why it’s important to concentrate on what we can do to help employers to attract the workforce. We hope, remote worker incentive program will help to make a decision for those, who would like to live and work in Wall”, – says Liliya Stone, director of Economic Development Corporation.
The employers who are interested in relocation program must contact Wall Economic Development Corporation at 605-279-2658 or firstname.lastname@example.org
