Developer Asks for Road Improvement Break from City

Real estate developer Daene Boomsma is asking the City Council and the Public Works Committee to help alleviate some of the costs for road improvements as he seeks to develop a sparsely populated area in northeastern Rapid City. According to the Rapid City Journal, city municipal code regulating subdivisions states that any developer who divides a piece of land into multiple parcels is responsible for improving the adjacent roadway. Boomsma estimates the roadway improvement costs at $300,000 and is asking for a break on having to do the roadway work. City taxpayers, though, would have to foot the bill if the Council goes along with his request unless the sides find another solution. Here's the agenda link from the meeting.
