5400 Old Folsom Road
Agenda Item Summary:
The applicant requests to annex a 15 acre parcel of land adjacent to the Rapid City corporate limits. The primary purpose of the annexation request is so that this property may connect to City water. The property is located south of Elk Vale Road and east of SD Highway 79. The property is zoned Heavy Industrial in Pennington County and is developed with several structures used for processing lumber, warehousing, and storage. The use of this property is consistent with the Future Land Use designation of Heavy Industrial. This property is located within a Fire Protection District that has outstanding debt. The City may reimburse the Fire District for all or a portion of this property’s share of the debt. If it is not reimbursed, the debt may continue to be levied against the property so there is no loss in revenue to the Fire District. Under that scenario, the property owner would be assessed the City mill levy and the Fire District Debt mill levy. This request meets the requirements in State Law and Rapid City’s Annexation Policy.
