BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A new study has identified a need for about 13,000 housing units over the next 15 years in the Bismarck-Mandan area.

The study released Tuesday indicates a housing target demand of nearly 9,100 housing units in Bismarck and more than 3,900 housing units in Mandan. It recommends the two cities implement a joint housing development initiative to encourage both private owner and rental properties and to monitor vacant lots for housing in the area.

The study also suggests the cities create a housing assistance program that would encourage major employers to assist their employees with finding affordable housing options.

It focuses on the need for downtown units, single-family housing and residential care for people 55 and older.
