The South Dakota Ellsworth Development Authority will use 230 acres of Box Elder land it purchased Wednesday at auction to build new homes for hundreds of residents of mobile home parks now in areas considered unsafe because of the noise and risk of crashes associated with Ellsworth Air Force Base.

Using a South Dakota Housing Development Authority grant, the Ellsworth authority had the high bid of $574,500, or $2,500 per acre, on land owned by the Etta Mae Bateman Family Trust. The authority also will need to pay $250,000 to the City of Box Elder for the cost of water to the property, put in place for an earlier, failed development on the land.
