Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Unprecedented building numbers are setting records in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
The Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead unveiled its annual building report today releasing numbers for Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo and Dilworth.
2013 housing starts set record highs at nearly 1,200 across the F-M area; 200 more than 2012, with a total construction value more than $663,000,000.
Out of the four cities, Moorhead's housing starts increased the most from last year, up 53%.
Carlita Dietz - Home Builders Association President: “Although we had a late winter last year and a very wet spring, we still managed to build houses at an amazing rate the rest of the year to catch up. We hope to continue that into 2014.”
Dietz also touched on the importance of permanent flood protection for our region. She says securing it could mean even more growth for our area.
