Rapid City Council Approves De-Annexing Land For Agricultural Purposes

The Rapid City Council unanimously voted Monday, April 17, to de-annex a twenty acre parcel of land located south of East Saint Patrick Street, on Sedivy Lane. Sylvia Conrad of Conrad & Company, owner of the land, requested the land be de-annexed into the county so she could then lease the lot to Valley Green Sod Farms. According to the Rapid City Journal, the land was annexed in 1974 but has yet to be developed. Supporters of de-annexing the land argued it was was unlikely for the land to be developed in the future due to parts of the land designated as being in the flood hazard district and parts in the agricultural district. 

Objectors to the de-annexation worried about legal issues, as the land would belong to the county but be surrounded by city land. It's also estimated the city will lose $350 a year from storm drainage fees.
