City looking for public input on Sixth Street Study

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Rapid City’s Metropolitan Planning Organization is looking for input from the public on the future of a busy downtown corridor.

The MPO will present its Sixth Street Study at a public meeting Tuesday to establish a cohesive vision for Rapid City’s Sixth Street corridor from the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center to the Performing Arts Center.

The study also focuses on making Sixth Street more pedestrian friendly, especially the busy crossing on Omaha Street.

“That’s been designated as a temporary crossing by the South Dakota Department of Transportation,” said Kip Harrington of Rapid City Department of Community Development. “So when traffic levels dictate, that crossing can actually go away. So we’re trying to come up with a plan to be proactive so we have a plan in place before that takes place.”

The open house is at the Dahl Arts Center Tuesday, Feb. 25 from 3-6 p.m.
