City Council prepares for renovations

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Renovations at City Hall continue since the departure of Rapid City Area Schools from the building and eyes are now set on the council chambers.

For the past several months crews focused mainly on the third floor of City Hall after the space was made available when RCAS moved into its new facility last year. With no major renovations done since City Hall was built in 1987, officials say the facility was ready for a much needed face-lift.

“The council chambers is a good example of same seats, same carpeting, same side boards, same curtains, same paint job — all of that. So we need to give it a nice upgrade, obviously some cosmetic work but also some sound work,” said Darrel Shoemaker, Rapid City Communications Coordinator.

Work on the city’s council chamber is expected to take place during the month of March. During renovations council meetings scheduled for March 2 and 16 will be held at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center. For a full list of  upcoming meetings and there locations, see below.
