Listening to Mobridge was a community workshop course conducted by The University of Utah's City & Metropolitan Planning Department, by Associate Professor Stephen Goldsmith and his students, during the Fall 2010 semester.
The class visited Mobridge, South Dakota on October 1-4, 2010. Their focus was on the future of a 30-acre piece of lake front property.
During that time they experienced firsthand the small community's landscape and lifestyle. A rich knowledge was gained by the students through their conversations with Mobridge residents.
When the students returned to Salt Lake City, Utah they spent the semester debating and devising ideas about all possibilities for the 30-acre site.
Approximate area that the focus is on, residents are being asked to help in the visualizing the development potential of a 30-acre parcel of land next to Lake Oahe and connected Mobridge’s Main Street.
