Never thought I'd see the day when Surrey would grow to 10,000 people.

Development could multiply Surrey population - MinotDailyNews.com | News, sports, business, jobs - Minot Daily News

Annexations to Burlington (north of Minot) may add 5000 people there.

Berthold, to the west of Minot, will also be getting a major development of 2000 homes over five years.

WOW is all I can say. I never thought Surrey would ever get that big. I Loved that quiet paced, gravel street, tiny lil out post of Minot. It was more a bedroom community because there was not really any stores there ever besides a gas station - post office, churches and couple bars. My sister lived there for years, she is buried there because she said she always thought it would be a nice quiet little place. The church she is buried behind has become a home and now it seems the nice little quiet place will not be quiet any longer, if the population goes up 10 fold.

I wonder what the tiny school will do to keep up with that growth of population?

For the school, there will be another elementary school added in the new addition. By the time this addition is finished, there should be about 1000 new home units in north Surrey. The new lumberyard should be completed before winter sets in.

There companies should look at the opportunity in Grand Forks and the housing shortage here.

I've seen some of this construction going up over the last year. In Burlington now as well. Anyone have updates on if the expected volume of houses is staying the same, or if we can expect to see an influx of people to these areas?
