Projects to increase housing options in ParshallPARSHALL, N.D. — Several projects are under construction or in the planning stages in the community of Parshall to deal with the rapid growth associated with the oil industry.
The Minot Daily News reports that six homes are already in place at a new housing project east of Parshall Bay, and there's a projection for 30 more.
Area tribal representative Mervin Packineau says Parshall Bay is a Three Affiliated Tribes housing project, but anyone who meets certain guidelines is eligible to occupy a home in the new area.
A new RV park under construction nearby is due to open within two weeks with 114 full-service sites. Owner Chad Caillier says he's already about 70 percent booked.
A new motel is being planned near the intersection of North Dakota Highways 23 and 37.
