Sturgis votes against Marcotte tract development

STURGIS, S.D. — The City of Sturgis held a special election on Tuesday to decide the fate of the Marcotte Tract, a 60-acre piece of land on the southwest edge of the city previously annexed into city limits in February 2016.


The results – 662 “yes” and 554 “no” – means that the tract will remain undeveloped for the next five years.

Related improvements – including a neighborhood park, splash park/aquatics area, batting cages, and road/trail improvements – will not take place.
