Agenda Item Summary:
A request was received in the Engineering Office on March 26, 2021 to waive the requirement to install sidewalk when platting property outside the City limits (per City of Rapid City Ordinance 16.16.050). Per City standards, a four-foot wide property line sidewalk is required to be constructed along the frontage of Schroeder Road and along the frontage of Ridgeland Loop for proposed Lots A, B & C at the time of platting. The requested variance will waive the requirement to install 1,350 feet of sidewalk along the roadway frontage of Schroeder Road and Ridgeland Loop. Staff recommends approval of this request since Schroeder Road and Ridgeland Loop are both rural roads and more than 2-1/2 miles from the City limits. See attached pictorials.
