State Issues RFI for Custer STAR Academy

Parties interested in purchasing the State Treatment and Rehabilitation (STAR) Academy in Custer may now submit a request for information to the State of South Dakota, reports KOTA News. The state is aiming to sell the property to a business or organization that contributes to the local economy or has an otherwise positive effect on the community.

The STAR Academy closed earlier in 2016, as the state reduced the number of juveniles that were sent to the camp. The building is nearly 170,000 square feet and is situated on just over 180 acres of land. The property includes meeting areas, commercial laundry, running track, athletic field, and a fishing pond.
