Aberdeen's Development Climate
Aberdeen has been fortunate to "miss out" on much of the economic slowdown experienced across the country. While we haven't experienced the peaks other parts of the nation have, we also are weathering the current valley where other cities have not fared so well.
Aberdeen continues to be an economic hub of northeast South Dakota, serving as a business, employment and housing center amid a large agricultural region.
The city has continued its pattern of steady growth in both the expansion of the city boundaries and in-fill development over the past several years. Evidence of this growth can be seen in the following:
- Over 750 Acres of Land Annexed into City since 2007
- 1.5 Million Square Feet of new Commercial Projects since 2005
- Over 300 New Residential Building Permits issued with a value of more than $31 Million since 2005
Below is a summary of the developments the city has seen over the past few years. In addition to the projects below, the Planning and Zoning Department continues to issue a large volume of building and zoning permits for remodeling projects as citizens and business owners alike work to maintain and enhance their existing homes and businesses.
