A request was received in the Engineering Office on January 13, 2021 requesting the requirement to install sidewalk along Commerce Road and Fountain Plaza Drive per City of Rapid City Ordinance 12.08.060 be waived. A five-foot wide sidewalk is required to be constructed along both frontages, at the time of building permit, with the property having approximately 881 feet of frontage along Commerce Road and Fountain Plaza Drive. Commerce Road is a two lane, paved, rural street section and Fountain Plaza Drive is a two lane, paved, urban street section. There is no sidewalk on the west side of Fountain Plaza Drive and no sidewalks on Commerce Road, the builder also owns the property on the east side of Fountain plaza adjacent to the property that is being developed. The owner is proposing to build the sidewalk along the frontage of Fountain Plaza drive on the east side to extend the curbside sidewalk that is already in place. The attached exhibit shows what their proposal would be.
