Sky Ridge development in Spearfish will provide affordable housing for the community
SPEARFISH, S.D. — A new affordable housing development in Spearfish is in the process of going up.
Construction began last September. Sky Ridge is on Colorado Boulevard, near Highway 85. A 2013 study showed the need for more affordable housing options in Spearfish.
The city brought in Dream Design International of Rapid City to create a public-private partnership to build affordable homes.
The city is also working to install a sports complex adjacent to the subdivision.
City Administrator for Spearfish, Michael Harmon, said, “We’ll have four regulation size softball fields; there’ll be a concession stand in the middle; we’ll have restroom facilities. And then six regulation size soccer fields that will be part of this project. We are in final design on that phase right now.”
The city expects to have 30 homes completed by August 1st, weather permitting.
