A place to call home

NSCDC opens first apartment building

By Jerry W. Kram

Twenty families will soon have a place to call home.

The North Segment Community Development Corporation held a grand opening for the 20-unit Wooden Bowl I apartment building located on Ninth Street northeast of the Northern Lights Building. The apartments were built in just 10 weeks.

"We got her done," said Elgin Crows Breast, president of the NSCDC. "Our plan came to fruition. Now it is a reality and we will be putting our people into affordable homes. One of the biggest concerns since the oil play has moved into New Town are the people who have been here all their lives have taken the brunt of the impacts."

North Segment Tribal Business Council Representative Ken Hall cut the ribbon to officially open the apartment building. He said the project will help the incredible housing shortage in the New Town area.
