Rapid City Moves Toward Sole Ownership of Shared City/School Administration Center

The City of Rapid City is working toward sole ownership of the City School Administration Center, reports KOTA News. Rapid City plans to buy out Rapid City Area Schools which is relocating to the building formerly owned by Black Hills Corporation. The Rapid City YMCA will also occupy space in the former Black Hills Corp building.

The current concern for Rapid City is how to pay for the space, which is estimated at nearly $3 million. Mayor Steve Allender has suggested utilizing Vision Funds, but the purchase may not be in compliance with city ordinances governing the fund.
