Creek Drive does not line up north and south of East Saint Pat, an issue that would be exacerbated by widening the north side.

Street Improvement Could End Affordable Housing Project

An affordable housing project along Creek Drive in Rapid City may be cancelled unless the Rapid City Council approves a waiver. As part of the construction process, the builder would be expected to add pavement, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and other improvements. The developer submitted an appeal to the Public Works Committee. According to the Rapid City Journal, the developer argued that completing the upgrades would be wasteful and further the misalignment of the Creek Drive intersection with East St. Patrick Street.

The affordable housing project would create one-bedroom apartments to rent for $660 a month, targeting people making $25,000 annually (just over $12 an hour). Past stories on affordable housing are linked in the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archive.
