"The idea of building first new town in South Dakota receives an important boost in form of official support from McCook County Commission...Laurent is envisioned as a beautifully designed, compact city of about 1,200 residents where deaf and hard-of-hearing people would be free to pursue business and civic interests that might seem out of reach in the hearing world.The developers expect that sign-language users from across the country would move to Laurent, but the community would be open to hearing people as well."

Thanks to Marvin Miller
