On Monday, March 7, the Rapid City Council had the first reading of an ordinance which would put the Fine Arts Council in charge of the management of Art Alley, KOTA reports. The Fine Arts Council would need to coordinate the work of artists with the business owners of the area.
Some of the regulations that would be placed on Art Alley could include:
- Requiring the permission of the building's owner if an artist wishes to paint on a building.
- Not painting on any buildings in which the owners have "opted out" of being part of Art Alley.
- Artists would need to provide a valid photo ID and sign a Liability and Release form and Art Alley Policies prior to starting a project.
