UPDATED - Council Calls Special Meeting on Summer Nights/Summer Concert Series

Update- The special session has been canceled. Leaders for the two events are talking and a joint proposal is expected next month.

The decision on the event permits for Summer Nights and the Summer Concert Series could be decided sooner than expected. The Rapid City Council has scheduled a special meeting to discuss the two events. Previously, the Legal & Finance Committee had voted to give the two 30 days to try to work out an agreement.

Summer Nights started in 2008. Over the years, some business owners have expressed concern because the event requires closing down St. Joseph Street or Main Street. For 2015, Summer Nights has proposed alternating between closing St. Joseph and Main each week. Summer Concert Series started in 2013 at Main Street Square; for 2015, they are looking at adding a second stage. Police Chief Karl Jegeris has recommended that the City Council not approve both events as currently planned.
