Rapid City Mayor Presents Parking Options for Proposed Arena

While Rapid City residents take time to consider a new arena, Rapid City Mayor Steve Allender tackled a key concern of many: parking options for the new arena. According to KOTA News, current parking for the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center along with a proposed lot north of the arena will total 1,260 parking spaces. However, 300 spaces may be lost with the addition of a new arena, bringing the total down to 960.

Some residents have expressed interest in the addition of a parking ramp, but the addition would cost approximately $30 million. Alternative options to a new parking ramp include a shuttle service for patrons to the arena or simply walking several blocks from other city-owned parking lots.
