Rapid City Mayor Seeks Development Answers in Sioux Falls

Mayor Steve Allender wants more information to ensure the city makes the best choice in what it does with the former President's Plaza site. The Rapid City Journal reports that he is arranging to have city worker travel to Sioux Falls to meet with counterparts. Sioux Falls is starting a selection process to fill a downtown rail yard and Allender believes that Rapid City could learn from it.

Rapid City's efforts to transform the Fifth Street parking lot began in 2006. The city ultimately canceled the President's Plaza plan in fall of 2016. Learn more about the history of the President's Plaza on the Black Hills Knowledge Network resource page
