This week an open house meeting was held to discuss proposed changes for downtown Rapid City, reports KOTA.
One suggestion was concerned with reducing high speed traffic through downtown by changing Main Street and Saint Joseph Street from 3 lanes of traffic to 2 lanes. A more controversial suggestion was to make parking spaces "back-in" spaces. This would make it easier to enter the flow of traffic when leaving, and easier to see bike traffic. A representative from an urban management group present at the meeting suggested trying a pilot program to see how the community would react.
