According to the Rapid City Planning Commission, Colonial Motel may soon be turned into a convenience store and gas station, Rapid City Journal reports. Because Colonial Motel is a low income housing unit, the project has been receiving criticism as of late. The manager of the motel denies the plans, and says Colonial Motel is not closing.
If the demolition of Colonial Motel does proceed, the new store would be expected to open in 2017.
The rezoning request is on the agenda for the May 16 Rapid City Council meeting.
