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 acreage 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. Regretably, abandoned lots and empty, deteriorating buildings still dot much of the downtown area of Larimore.


The median income for a household in the city was $33,292, and the median income for a family was $40,542. Males had a median income of $29,375 versus $20,417 for females. The per capita income for the city was $16,271. About 6.1% of families and 7.4% of the population were below the poverty line, including 8.6% of those under age 18 and 10.7% of those age 65 or over.

Larimore v. State (Thornton, J.) CR96-219 (3738 words)
Larimore filed a response to the motion to dismiss, contending that if the trial court lacked jurisdiction to set aside a conviction under Rule 37, such an interpretation of the Rule would deny him due process, and that a writ of error coram nobis should issue.
Larimore argues at length that this sixty-day filing requirement is an unconstitutional deprivation of due process; however, he provides no citation of authority that would indicate that the sixty-day deadline is fundamentally unfair.
In conclusion, I note Larimore's reliance on some earlier Arkansas cases that have held it was within the power of the trial court to grant the writ of error coram nobis after the expiration of the term in which the judgment was rendered.
