Phelps County Development Corporation (PCDC) is committed to encouraging housing construction and renovation to bring workers and their families home to Phelps County. Many commuters earn their paychecks here but take that money home to surrounding counties. If those workers could move to Phelps County, our economy would be positively impacted. More money would be spent locally on shopping, dining, and entertainment. Additionally, more tax revenue would be generated to help pay for civic necessities such as infrastructure and schools. Every time a family purchases a home in Phelps County, they contribute to our economic growth now and for years to come. 

Phelps County also welcomes remote workers to enjoy our desirable quality of life. “If you can work from anywhere, why not live here!”

Phelps County Housing Study

The 2022 Phelps County Housing Study shows a need for 197–286 new housing units in the next five years.

“This study confirms what we knew intuitively from recent experience: Our market needs more housing for homeowners and renters,” PCDC Executive Director Ron Tillery said. “A lot more. The scope is clarified in the report and lays out the challenges we have to fill the current needs as well as our future growth.”
