The Rapid City Public Works Committee discussed waiving requirements by the developer for a plot of land, reports the Rapid City Journal. The Rapid City Area Schools requested the waiver to forgo building a sidewalk before transferring the land to the City of Rapid City. The lot is a drainage lot complete with a detention pond that will not be granted a building permit according to Dale Tech, Public Works Director.
The request for variance was denied by the committee, but will go to a formal vote at the Rapid City Council meeting on August 21st. The lot will cost the city money in the long run once acquired.
