Todayedit

Unlike many of small towns in North Dakota, Larimore has maintained a relatively stable population for the last forty years Its close proximity to employment opportunities in Grand Forks and at the Grand Forks Air Force Base have led the town to become an attractive choice for commuters desiring lower housing costs and a small-town environment Although new housing construction has been fairly stagnant during the last fifteen years, a number of new homes have been built throughout the town in the last several years where lots have been available A larger number of homes have been constructed outside of the city near Larimore Dam and along the Turtle River, north and east of the town Many of these homes are far larger and more expensive than those being built within the city limits

In rural Larimore, population density is higher east of the town than towards the west Although the area has lost farming households throughout many decades, many farms have been turned into horse ranches, hobby farms, or simply homesteads for commuters who wish to have more area than they would otherwise have in town

Although Larimore has maintained its residential base, it has faced more difficult challenges in regards to its commercial establishments Like numerous small communities throughout the Great Plains, the 1980s were a devastating time for local main street businesses Downturns in the farm economy and increased shopping options in larger, nearby cities such as Grand Forks, led to many store closures in Larimore that included everything from a farm implement dealer to a grocery store The business district has since "bottomed out" and many of the once abandoned buildings have either been renovated for other uses or demolished and replaced with new structures Abandoned lots and empty, deteriorating buildings still dot much of the downtown area of Larimore
