Four properties in Rapid City have received an eight-year moratorium on taxes while preservation efforts are underway. According to the Rapid City Journal, the properties include the Fairmont Creamery building, the Hotel Alex Johnson, Aby's Feed and Seed, and the Dean Motor Co. building. The moratorium is being offered as a way to encourage the owners of the properties to continue to work on upgrades and preservation of the buildings without fear of their property taxes going up.
