Rapid City to Hold Public Meeting On Parking

Rapid City’s Community Development Department will host a Q&A and informational meeting May 2nd regarding the proposed revisions to downtown parking policy, reports the Rapid City Journal. Currently there is an ordinance in progress that would authorize the installation of 620 new parking meters downtown.

The new meters could be installed as early as June and would cover Main and Saint Joseph Streets between Fifth and Ninth streets, as well as Sixth, Seventh, and Ninth streets. A second ordinance would establish parking permit program for street parking at $30 per month, with the permit only being effective in certain zones.

City spokesperson Darrell Shoemaker said that the new measures were developed to address the city’s goal of making downtown more livable. Members of city council and Mayor Allender are expected to attend the May 2nd meeting, which will take place from 5-6:30pm at the City and School Administration Building.
