The Rapid City Council voted in favor of the Neighbor Works Dakota Home Resources townhouse development on Monday, February 6. A citizen had filed an appeal of the planning commission's decision. The Rapid City Journal reported that other residents near the building site spoke at the council meeting. Concerns included adding townhouses would increase the population density of the area and that the new homes would not be affordable at lower incomes. The planned townhouses will have one and two bedroom apartments and go for between $115,000 to $145,000.
