At a recent community meeting to inform and celebrate Faulkton’s development successes, leaders speak to how Dakota Resources has assisted in expanding community engagement and supporting development initiatives.

Faulkton is a Dakota Rising Site, a Home Address Site and has been engaged in the Regional Systems Engagement pilot.  Community Coaches and technical assistance providers have been working with five initiative teams: housing, economic development, leadership, quality of life and philanthropy.  The goal of the work has been not just to get projects done, but to practice a more effective way of addressing community issues and ceasing opportunities.
